On March 28, 2024, Gilead Sciences Inc announced that it has received a shareholder proposal from John Chevedden requesting that the Board of Directors to adopt a policy requiring the 5 named executive officers (NEOs) to retain a significant percentage of stock acquired through equity pay programs until reaching normal retirement age and to report to shareholders regarding the policy in our Company?s next annual meeting proxy. For this policy, normal retirement age would be an age of at least 60 and be determined by our executive pay committee.
