On or about October 26, 2020, AutoZone, Inc. (the “Company”) mailed a definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) to its stockholders describing the matters to be voted on at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders to be held on December 16, 2020 (the “2020 Annual Meeting”), including the approval of the AutoZone, Inc. 2020 Omnibus Incentive Award Plan (the “Plan”), which is attached as Appendix A to the Proxy Statement. On November 20, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company approved an amendment to the Plan (collectively, the “Plan Amendment”) to (i) reduce the Share Limit (as defined in the Plan) under the terms of the Plan from 1,400,000 to 1,200,000, and (ii) adjust the computation of the Share Limit under the Plan, whereby awards granted under the Amended and Restated AutoZone, Inc. 2011 Equity Incentive Award Plan between October 19, 2020 and the date that the Plan is approved by the Company’s stockholders shall reduce the Share Limit, as provided for the award type therein. On November 20, 2020, the Company filed supplemental proxy materials with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to provide stockholders information about the Plan Amendment, to amend and restate the “Share Overhang and Availability Table” that is included in the Proxy Statement to provide supplemental disclosure and provide additional information regarding virtual meeting attendance and participation. The Plan, as amended, will be presented for stockholder approval at the 2020 Annual Meeting.
