PPG to Announce First Quarter 2014 Results April 17

2014 PPG Industries Annual Meeting of Shareholders

The 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders of PPG Industries will be held on Thursday, April 17, 2014, at the Fairmont Pittsburgh, Grand Ballroom, 510 Market Street, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania 15222. The meeting will begin at 11:00 a.m., Eastern Time.

Shareholders at the close of business on Feb. 21, 2014 (the record date) are entitled to attend.

If you are a shareholder of record or a participant in a retirement or savings plan maintained by PPG and wish to attend the annual meeting, please indicate this desire when voting via the Internet or by telephone, so that we may send you an admission card. However, if you have a paper proxy card because you received the proxy materials in paper form, there is an admission card on the top half of the proxy card. Please tear off the admission card and bring it with you to the annual meeting, along with a photo ID.

If you are a beneficial owner (you hold your shares though a bank, broker, trustee or other nominee) and you wish to attend the annual meeting, you must bring proof of ownership, such as an account statement, that clearly shows that you held PPG common stock on Feb. 21, 2014, or a legal proxy obtained from your bank, broker, trustee or other nominee. You must also bring a photo ID. Alternatively, you may obtain an admission card by sending your request and a copy of your proof of ownership to Investor Relations at PPG Industries, Inc., One PPG Place, 40 East, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15272.

2014 Annual Meeting Proxy Materials

In accordance with the SEC's Notice and Access rules, PPG shareholder proxy materials are available below. Shareholders can expect to receive a "Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials" via the U.S. Postal Service instead of receiving paper copies of the 2014 Proxy Statement and 2013 Annual Report. The Notice includes instructions for viewing the 2014 Proxy Statement and the 2013 Annual Report online, voting your shares via the Internet and requesting a paper copy of the proxy materials.
