The advisory vote on executive compensation is non-binding, meaning that our Board will not be obligated to take any compensation actions, or to adjust our executive compensation programs or policies, as a result of the vote. However, our Compensation & Talent Development Committee considers the results of the vote in evaluating our executive compensation program.
THE BOARD RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE “FOR” THE APPROVAL OF THIS ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION.
