The meeting could be moved or include limitations on attendees, Stoecker said, adding another possibility is to hold it “solely by means of remote communication.” The invitation was contained in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that was posted on the company’s website.

Alteryx shares rose 8.6% to about $97 dollars and $6.3 billion market cap.
