KITCHENER, ON, March 19, 2020 /CNW/ - Quarterhill Inc. ("Quarterhill" or the "Company") (TSX: QTRH) (OTCQX: QTRHF), announces details of its upcoming virtual Annual Meeting of shareholders ("AGM") to be held on Wednesday April 15, 2020 at 9:30 am (Eastern Standard Time).
To proactively deal with potential issues arising from the unprecedented public health impact of coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19, Quarterhill will hold its AGM in a virtual-only format conducted by live audio webcast.

Quarterhill's Notice of Meeting, Management Information Circular (the "Circular") and the accompanying form of proxy (collectively the "Meeting Materials") were mailed on or about March 19, 2020.

These materials outline in detail how to participate in the Company's virtual AGM.
