Therefore as the beneficial owner, as defined under Rule 13(d)-3 of the General Rules and Regulations of the Securities Act of 1934, of 1,000 shares of Pfizer common stock I am submitting for inclusion in the next proxy statement, in accordance with Rule 14a-8 of these General Rules, a shareholder proposal. I am acting with other members of Responsible Wealth, who together are offering this resolution. The proposal asks the Board of Directors to prepare a report on significant tax breaks that benefit the company.
In accordance with Rule 14a-8 I have held these shares for more than one year and will continue to hold the requisite number of shares through the date of the next stockholders' annual meeting. Proof of ownership will be provided upon request. One of the filing shareholders or their appointed representative will be present at the annual meeting to introduce the proposal.
Please send copies of all correspondence pertaining to this resolution to: Scott Klinger; United for a Fair Economy/Responsible Wealth; 37 Temple Place; Boston, MA 02111, who is assisting me in filing this resolution. United for a Fair Economy and its Responsible Wealth project are national non-profit organizations working to address issues of income and wealth inequality both legislatively and through shareholder activism.
A commitment from Pfizer to prepare the corporate tax report as requested would allow this resolution to be withdrawn. I believe that this proposal is in the best interest of Pfizer and its shareholders.
