Autodesk employees,
Earlier this week we began mailing materials for the upcoming Autodesk annual stockholder meeting to be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. If you owned Autodesk shares (not options or unvested restricted stock units) on April 19, 2016, you should receive materials as part of the mailing.  Please note that you likely have received or will receive this information via email rather than regular mail.  The delivery method depends on how you previously elected to receive stockholder materials from Autodesk. 
If you hold your shares in an E*TRADE account, you should have received an email from them this morning with a link to the materials.  Those materials instruct you on how to submit your vote. 
Additionally, a copy of the stockholder materials can also be viewed here: Autodesk Definitive Proxy Statement
We encourage you to review this material and cast your vote to approve the proposals.  Regardless of whether you own shares or not, you may review Autodesk’s 2016 Annual Report here: Autodesk Annual Report
If you have any questions, please call the Autodesk Investor Relations at 415-507-6373.
