To Our Stockholders:

This Notice of Change of Location (this “Notice”) provides updated information with respect to EPAM’s 2020 Annual Meeting to be held on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. EDT.

This Notice should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement.

On May 22, 2020, EPAM issued a press release announcing that due to the ongoing public-health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, recommendations of health officials regarding large in-person gatherings, anticipated extensions of restrictions on business openings in the communities surrounding our principal executive offices, and the importance of safeguarding the health and well-being of all of EPAM’s directors, officers, employees, and stockholders, the Annual Meeting will be held in a virtual-only format.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Annual Meeting will be held virtually on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. EDT. The live audio webcast of the Annual Meeting can be accessed at https://web.lumiagm.com/252625499. While you will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person, the virtual Annual meeting has been designed to provide EPAM’s stockholders with the same opportunities to participate in the virtual meeting as they would have if physically present at the Annual Meeting.

As described in the Proxy Statement, you are entitled to participate in the Annual Meeting if you were a stockholder of record as of the close of business on April 13, 2020 or hold a legal proxy for the meeting provided by your broker or other nominee. To be admitted to and participate in the Annual Meeting, you must enter the 11-digit control number found on your proxy card, voting instruction form or notice you previously received, and the meeting password.

You may vote during the Annual Meeting by following the instructions available at https://web.lumiagm.com/252625499. Whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, you are encouraged to vote in advance by one of the methods described in the Proxy Statement


for the Annual Meeting. The proxy card included with the Proxy Statement will not be updated to reflect the change in location and may continue to be used to vote your shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.
