A message from Pfizer’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and Lead Independent Director

 

 

Albert Bourla, DVM, Ph.D.

 

 

Shantanu Narayen

 

Dear Shareholders:

 

We are pleased to announce that Pfizer’s Board of Directors is presenting Dr. Susan Desmond-Hellmann as an additional nominee for election as a Director at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) to be held on Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

 

As previously announced, the Board of Directors elected Dr. Desmond-Hellmann as a Director on April 1, 2020. Dr. Desmond-Hellmann brings to the Board of Directors a unique set of qualifications and experiences in medicine, academia, research and global healthcare that make her an excellent addition to the Board.

 

Since this change adds Dr. Desmond-Hellmann to the slate of Directors standing for election at the Annual Meeting, we are providing you with additional information in the enclosed Supplement to the Proxy Statement (the “Supplement”) and an amended proxy card or voting instruction form to allow shareholders to vote on the election of Dr. Desmond-Hellmann to the Board to hold office until the next Annual Meeting. For technical purposes, the election of Dr. Desmond-Hellmann as a Director is being considered as a separate voting matter (Item 9).

 

We encourage you to vote on all nine proposals by one of the methods described in the Supplement. The receipt of your new proxy or voting instruction will revoke and supersede any proxy or voting instruction previously submitted. If you have already voted and do not submit new voting instructions, your previously submitted proxy or voting instruction will be voted at the Annual Meeting with respect to all other proposals, but will not be counted in determining the outcome of Item 9, the election of Dr. Desmond-Hellmann to the Board.

 

In addition, in response to continued public health concerns related to the coronavirus / COVID-19, and to support the health and well-being of our shareholders and other meeting participants, please note that the location of the Annual Meeting has been changed and will be held in a virtual meeting format only. While you will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting at a physical location, we have designed the virtual Annual Meeting to ensure that our shareholders are given the same rights and opportunities to actively participate in the Annual Meeting as they would at an in-person meeting, using online tools to facilitate shareholder access and participation.

 

Please read the Proxy Statement that was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 13, 2020 and the enclosed Supplement in their entirety, as together they contain information that is important to your decisions in voting at the Annual Meeting. The enclosed Supplement, together with the Proxy Statement, our 2019 Financial Report and our other proxy materials, are also available on our website at https://investors.pfizer.com/financials/annual-reports/default.aspx, on www.proxyvote.com and on www.investorvote.com/PFE.

 

Your vote is important. Whether or not you plan to attend the virtual Annual Meeting, we encourage you to review the proxy materials and to vote as soon as possible. You may vote by telephone or through the Internet by following the instructions on the notice you received, or, if you receive a paper proxy card or voting instruction form by mail, you may also vote by completing and returning the proxy card or voting instruction form mailed to you. Voting by telephone, through the Internet or by written proxy card or voting instruction form will ensure your representation at the Annual Meeting regardless of whether you attend. Information with respect to voting procedures and attending the virtual Annual Meeting can be found in the enclosed Supplement and our Proxy Statement.

 

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

 

Sincerely,

SUPPLEMENT TO PROXY STATEMENT
FOR THE 2020 ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON APRIL 23, 2020

 

This Supplement to the Proxy Statement (“Supplement”), dated April 7, 2020, is being made available to shareholders of Pfizer Inc. (“Pfizer” or the “Company”) on or about April 7, 2020 in connection with the solicitation of proxies by our Board of Directors (“Board”) for the Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held on Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (the “Annual Meeting”). This Supplement and the Amended Notice of 2020 Annual Meeting amend the Proxy Statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 13, 2020.

 

Election of an Additional Director. This Supplement provides information related to Item 9, which has been added to the agenda for the Annual Meeting, and does not provide all of the information that is important to your decisions in voting at the Annual Meeting. Additional information is contained in the Proxy Statement for our Annual Meeting that was previously made available to our shareholders.

 

Virtual Annual Meeting. This Supplement also provides information related to the virtual Annual Meeting. In response to continued public health concerns related to the coronavirus / COVID-19, and to support the health and well-being of our shareholders and other meeting participants, please note that the location of the Annual Meeting has been changed and will be held in a virtual meeting format only. While you will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting at a physical location, we have designed the virtual Annual Meeting to ensure that our shareholders are given the same rights and opportunities to actively participate in the Annual Meeting as they would at an in-person meeting, using online tools to facilitate shareholder access and participation.

 

There is no change to the record date to determine shareholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting. As such, only shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 25, 2020 are entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the virtual Annual Meeting and any adjournments or postponements thereof.

 

The amended proxy card or voting instruction form enclosed with this Supplement differs from the proxy card or voting instruction form previously furnished to you with the Proxy Statement dated March 13, 2020, in that the enclosed proxy card or voting instruction form includes the election of the additional Director nominee as a new Item 9. If you have already voted, we encourage you to resubmit your vote on all nine proposals by submitting the amended proxy card or voting instruction form enclosed with this Supplement or by submitting a proxy by telephone or through the Internet by following the procedures on your amended proxy card or voting instruction form. However, if you return, or have returned, an original proxy card or voting instruction form, your proxy will still remain valid for all of the other proposals and Director nominees except Dr. Desmond-Hellmann because she is not listed as a nominee on the original proxy card or voting instruction form, and will be voted at the Annual Meeting unless revoked. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU SUBMIT A NEW PROXY CARD OR VOTING INSTRUCTION FORM, IT WILL REVOKE ALL PRIOR PROXY CARDS OR VOTING INSTRUCTION FORMS, SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO INDICATE YOUR VOTE ON EACH PROPOSAL ON THE NEW PROXY CARD OR VOTING INSTRUCTION FORM.

 

Except for the addition of Item 9 and change to a virtual meeting format, this Supplement does not modify, amend, supplement or otherwise affect any matter presented for consideration in the Proxy Statement. The Proxy Statement contains important additional information.This Supplement should only be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement.

Item 9Election of an Additional Director

 

At the Annual Meeting, fourteen members of our Board are standing for re-election, to hold office until the next Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

 

Biographical and stock ownership information with respect to the thirteen Director nominees described in Item 1 of the Proxy Statement and certain other information relating to the Company’s Board is set forth in the Proxy Statement under the sections captioned “Item 1Election of Directors” and “Non-Employee Director Compensation.”

 

On April 1, 2020, the Board, acting upon the recommendation of the Governance & Sustainability Committee, elected Dr. Susan Desmond-Hellmann to the Board and nominated her for re-election at the 2020 Annual Meeting. The Board has nominated Dr. Desmond-Hellmann in addition to the nominees described in Item 1 of the Proxy Statement, to serve until the next Annual Meeting of Shareholders. The Governance & Sustainability Committee considered the election of Dr. Desmond-Hellmann as a Director upon recommendation by our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and evaluation by a third-party search firm. We expect Dr. Desmond-Hellmann to be able to serve if elected. If she is not able to serve, the persons appointed by the Board and named as proxies in the proxy materials or, if applicable, their substitutes (the “Proxy Committee”) may vote their proxies for a substitute nominee, unless the Board chooses to reduce the number of Directors serving on the Board.

 

The Board has determined that Dr. Desmond-Hellmann is independent under our Director Qualification Standards (“Standards”). In determining that Dr. Desmond-Hellmann is independent, the Governance & Sustainability Committee and the Board took into consideration that she is a Senior Advisor to the Bill & Melinda Gates Medical Research Institute, which is affiliated with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a philanthropic organization that has supported Pfizer’s philanthropic efforts. Our Standards meet, and in some respects exceed, the independence requirements of the New York Stock Exchange.

 

Below is biographical and certain other information, as of the date of this Supplement, with respect to Dr. Desmond-Hellmann, including her principal occupation and business experience for the past five years. The information presented below for Dr. Desmond-Hellmann, regarding her specific experience, qualifications, attributes and skills, led the Governance & Sustainability Committee and our Board to conclude that she should be nominated as a Director nominee and is qualified to continue to serve on the Board, if elected at the Annual Meeting.

Abstentions and broker non-votes are not counted as votes “for” or “against” a Director nominee. Any nominee who does not receive a majority of votes cast “for” his or her election would be required to tender his or her resignation promptly following the failure to receive the required vote. Within 90 days of the certification of the shareholder vote, the Governance & Sustainability Committee would then be required to make a recommendation to the Board as to whether the Board should accept the resignation, and the Board would be required to decide whether to accept the resignation and disclose its decision-making process.
