4.   

Shareholder Proposal Requesting Political Spending Disclosure (if properly presented)

As described further herein, we have made governance updates regarding political contributions, and we are already subject to political contribution limits and disclosure requirements under federal, state and local laws. Because this proposal would not provide meaningful additional information to shareholders, we do not believe that this proposal is in the best interest of our company or our shareholders.

 

 

   AGAINST    70

 

Transforming Our Industry

 

In 2019, we successfully completed the acquisition of First Data, a global leader in commerce-enabling technology and solutions for merchants, financial institutions and card issuers. The transaction expanded the breadth of capabilities and depth of expertise of Fiserv and provides clients access to a more comprehensive set of solutions and innovations, an extensive range of end-to-end capabilities and integrated delivery. We also delivered strong financial results, made meaningful progress in integrating First Data and began to capture synergy opportunities, all as a means to deliver superior value for our clients through leading technology, targeted innovation and excellence in everything we do.

 

Recent Governance Matters

 

First Data Governance-Related Matters

 

Certain governance changes became effective as of the date of the First Data acquisition pursuant to the merger agreement between Fiserv and First Data. These changes, which are embodied in our amended and restated by-laws, will immediately, and without further action by the board, terminate following our 2021 annual meeting of shareholders.

 

Upon the closing of the transaction, Jeffery Yabuki continued to serve as the chief executive officer of Fiserv and became the chairman of the board of directors, and Frank Bisignano, the First Data chief executive officer, became the president and chief operating officer of Fiserv and joined the board of directors. Our by-laws were amended and restated to reflect other governance terms related to our board of directors as agreed to in the merger agreement. Following the acquisition, the board of directors consists of ten directors, with six directors designated by Fiserv, consisting of five independent directors of Fiserv prior to the completion of the transaction and the Fiserv chief executive officer, and four directors designated by First Data, consisting of two independent directors of First Data prior to the closing date, the First Data chief executive officer and one director designated by and affiliated with New Omaha Holdings L.P. (“New Omaha”) in accordance with a shareholder agreement between Fiserv and New Omaha. The amended and restated by-laws also provide that the board will have a lead independent director if the same person serves as chief executive officer and chairman of the board, that one qualified continuing First Data director will serve on each of the audit, compensation and nominating and corporate governance committees of the board, and that the chairperson of the compensation committee will be designated by the continuing First Data directors.

 

We encourage you to review the “Corporate Governance – First Data Transaction” section of this proxy statement for a more detailed description of the corporate governance changes resulting from the First Data acquisition including their required duration.

 

Other Governance Developments

 

In response to shareholder interest in matters related to political contributions and expenditures, our board of directors recently enhanced our governance in this area.

 

•  Our board of directors adopted a political contributions policy pursuant to which all contributions by the company must be approved by our chief executive officer and our chief legal officer.

•  Our board of directors amended the charter of its nominating and corporate governance committee to provide that the committee will review annually the company’s political contributions policy and all contributions made by the company in the prior year.

 

 

Recent Compensation Matters

 

In 2019 following the First Data acquisition, our compensation committee granted performance share units to all our named executive officers with a three-year performance period. The number of shares issued at vesting will be based on total shareholder return as compared to the S&P 500 Index (50% weighting) and the company’s achievement of cost synergies (30% weighting) and revenue synergies (20% weighting). These performance share units reflect our focus on a successful integration and creation of shareholder value.

 

In addition, in 2019, our compensation committee approved an increase to the stock ownership policy applicable to our chief executive officer and chief operating officer to require them to own equity having a value of at least twelve times (12x) their annual base salary. This increase further aligns the interests of our most senior leaders with the interests of our shareholders.

 

We encourage you to review the entire “Compensation Discussion and Analysis” section of this proxy statement as well as the tabular and narrative disclosure under “Executive Compensation.”

Executive Compensation Practices

 

LOGO    Pay-for-Performance Philosophy. Our compensation committee seeks to structure compensation that incentivizes our leaders to strive for market-leading performance, which we expect will translate into long-term value for our shareholders, and is balanced by the risk of lower performance-based compensation when we do not meet our performance objectives.

 

LOGO    Balanced Compensation Strategy. We provide cash incentive awards based on annual performance and long-term incentive compensation in the form of equity that promotes long-term financial, operating and strategic performance by delivering incremental value to executive officers based on financial results and to the extent our stock price increases over time.

 

LOGO    Performance Share Units. In furtherance of our pay-for-performance philosophy, we grant performance share units. The number of shares issued at vesting will be determined by the achievement of performance goals over a three-year period.

 

                        

LOGO    Robust Stock Ownership. We have a stock ownership policy that requires our directors and executive officers to acquire and maintain a significant amount of Fiserv equity to further align their interests with those of our long-term shareholders. In this regard, in 2019, we increased the share ownership requirement for our chief executive officer and chief operating officer. They are now required to own equity having a value of at least twelve times (12x) their annual base salary.

 

LOGO    No Hedging or Pledging. We have a policy that prohibits our directors and executive officers from hedging or pledging Fiserv stock.

 

LOGO    Clawback Policy. We have a compensation recoupment, or “clawback,” policy.

 

LOGO    No Pensions. We do not provide separate pension programs or a supplemental executive retirement plan to our executive officers.

The board of directors of Fiserv, Inc., a Wisconsin corporation, is soliciting proxies in connection with our annual meeting of shareholders to be held on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. (CT), or at any adjournment or postponement of the meeting. On April 1, 2020, we will commence mailing the notice of Internet availability of proxy materials, or a proxy statement, proxy card and annual report, to shareholders entitled to vote at the annual meeting.
 

    

 

Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials

 

In accordance with rules and regulations adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, we may furnish our proxy statement and annual report to shareholders of record by providing access to those documents via the Internet instead of mailing printed copies. The notice you received regarding the Internet availability of our proxy materials (the “Notice”) provides instructions on how to access our proxy materials and cast your vote via the Internet, by telephone or by mail.

 

Shareholders’ access to our proxy materials via the Internet allows us to reduce printing and delivery costs and lessen adverse environmental impacts. If you would like to receive a paper or email copy of our proxy materials, you should follow the instructions in the Notice for requesting those materials.

 

Solicitation of Proxies

 

We will pay the cost of soliciting proxies on behalf of the board of directors. Our directors, officers and other employees may solicit proxies by mail, personal interview, telephone or electronic communication. None of them will receive any special compensation for these efforts.

 

We have retained the services of Georgeson LLC (“Georgeson”) to assist us in soliciting proxies. Georgeson may solicit proxies by personal interview, mail, telephone or electronic communications. We expect to pay Georgeson its customary fee, approximately $10,000, plus reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in the process of soliciting proxies. We also have made arrangements with brokerage firms, banks, nominees and other fiduciaries to forward proxy materials to beneficial owners of shares. We will

                  

reimburse such record holders for the reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by them in connection with forwarding proxy materials. Proxies solicited hereby will be tabulated by an inspector of election, who will be designated by the board of directors and will not be an employee or director of Fiserv, Inc.

 

Holders Entitled to Vote

 

The board of directors has fixed the close of business on March 18, 2020 as the record date for determining the shareholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the annual meeting. On the record date, there were 676,336,158 shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote, and we had no other classes of securities outstanding.

 

All of these shares are to be voted as a single class, and you are entitled to cast one vote for each share you held as of the record date on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders.

 

Voting Your Shares

 

You may vote:

 

By Internet

Visit www.proxyvote.com

 

By telephone

Dial toll-free 1-800-690-6903

 

By mailing your proxy card

If you requested a printed copy of the proxy materials, mark your vote on the proxy card, sign and date it, and return it in the enclosed envelope.

Voting through the Internet or by telephone. You may direct your vote by proxy without attending the annual meeting. You can vote by proxy via the Internet or by telephone until 11:59 p.m. (ET) on May 13, 2020 by following the instructions provided in the Notice. Shareholders voting via the Internet or by telephone will bear any costs associated with electronic or telephone access, such as usage charges from Internet access providers and telephone companies.

Voting by proxy card. If you requested a printed copy of the proxy materials, you may vote by returning a proxy card that is properly signed and completed. The shares represented by that card will be voted as you have specified.

Banks, brokers or other nominees. Shareholders who hold shares through a bank, broker or other nominee may vote by the methods that their bank or broker makes available, in which case the bank or broker will include instructions with the Notice or this proxy statement. If you wish to vote at the virtual annual meeting online, you may do so using the 16-digit control number included on the instructions that accompanied your Notice or proxy statement.

401(k) savings plan. An individual who had a beneficial interest in shares of our common stock allocated to his or her account under a Fiserv 401(k) savings plan as of March 18, 2020, whether at Vanguard or Merrill Lynch, may vote the shares of common stock allocated to his or her account at the applicable plan administrator as of such date. We will provide instructions to participants regarding how to vote. If no direction is provided by the participant about how to vote his or her shares by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on May 11, 2020, the trustee of the applicable 401(k) savings plan will vote the shares in the same manner and in the same proportion as the shares for which voting instructions are received from other participants, except that either trustee, in the exercise of its fiduciary duties, may determine that it must vote the shares in some other manner.

 

 
 
   
 

Participating in the Meeting

This year’s annual meeting will be accessible through the Internet. This change is being made due to an abundance of caution related to the coronavirus (COVID-19), and the priority we place on the health and well-being of our shareholders, partners and employees. The annual meeting will also be accessible to all shareholders regardless of their physical location and we expect to offer the same type of participation opportunities during the meeting as we have at past in-person meetings.

If you hold shares through a bank, broker or other nominee, you will need to contact such bank, broker or other nominee for assistance with your 16-digit control number.

Proxies

 

Jeffery W. Yabuki, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Frank J. Bisignano, President and Chief Operating Officer, and Lynn S. McCreary, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary, have been selected by the board of directors as proxy holders and will vote shares represented by valid proxies. All shares represented by valid proxies received and not revoked before they are exercised will be voted in the manner specified in the proxies.

 

If nothing is specified, the proxies will be voted: “FOR” each of the board’s nominees for director; “FOR” proposals two and three; and “AGAINST” proposal four, if properly presented at the annual meeting.

 

Our board of directors is unaware of any other matters that may be presented for action at our annual meeting. If other matters do properly come before the annual meeting or any adjournments or postponements thereof, it is intended that shares represented by proxies will be voted in the discretion of the proxy holders.

 

You may revoke your proxy at any time before it is exercised by doing any of the following:

 

•  entering a new vote using the Internet or by telephone

       

•  giving written notice of revocation to Lynn S. McCreary, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary, Fiserv, Inc., 255 Fiserv Drive, Brookfield, Wisconsin 53045

 

•  submitting a subsequently dated and properly completed proxy card

 

•  attending the virtual annual meeting and voting at the virtual annual meeting online

 

However, if your shares are held of record by a bank, broker or other nominee, you must obtain a proxy issued in your name from the record holder.

 

Quorum

 

The presence, at the virtual annual meeting online or by proxy, of at least a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote at the annual meeting will constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. Holders of shares that abstain from voting or that are subject to a broker non-vote will be counted as present for the purpose of determining the presence or absence of a quorum for the transaction of business. In the event there are not sufficient votes for a quorum or to approve a proposal at the time of the annual meeting, the annual meeting may be adjourned or postponed, in our sole discretion, in order to permit the further solicitation of proxies.

For each of these proposals, abstentions and broker non-votes will be entirely excluded from the vote and will have no effect on its outcome.
