Fiscal 2023 Business Highlights

We overcame industrywide headwinds throughout 2023, leading to top quartile and differentiated financial results for the year. Our performance in the face of an evolving macro environment is both a testament to the hard work of our incredible team and the result of the transformation that has taken place at our Company in recent years, not only from a portfolio composition standpoint, but also from an operational agility and collaboration perspective. Highlights of our fiscal year 2023 performance include:

 

   

GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.44 for fiscal year 2023, as compared to GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations of $4.06 for fiscal year 2022. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations for fiscal year 2023 was $4.65, as compared to $6.92 in fiscal year 2022.

 

   

GAAP revenue for fiscal year 2023 of $2,751 million, as compared to $3,312 million in fiscal year 2022.

 

   

GAAP operating income from continuing operations for fiscal year 2023 of $301 million, as compared to $743 million in fiscal year 2022.

 

   

GAAP operating profit margin from continuing operations was 10.9% as a percentage of revenue for fiscal year 2023, as compared to 22.4% for fiscal year 2022.

A reconciliation of our GAAP results to the non-GAAP financial measure set forth above, adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations, can be found in Appendix A to this proxy statement.

Talent and Culture

At Revvity, we are united in investing in our people. Our goal is to ensure that every employee feels engaged and supported and that they fully experience our culture and values. We aim to create an experience that is consistent, collaborative and inclusive for all of our more than 11,000 colleagues around the world. Our people are our superpower and empowering our employees inspires them to deliver their best work and show up as their best selves. For us, investing in our people reflects our commitment to building an environment where everyone can thrive, contribute and find fulfillment in their professional journeys.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement iii


Our areas of focus include:

 

   

developing our employees’ talents through multiple corporate and personalized AI-powered programs promoting learning, career growth and recognition structure for all employees within the Company;

 

   

supporting the well-being of our employees;

 

   

offering a diverse and inclusive culture aligned with our values; and

 

   

engaging our employees to achieve our shared vision of an innovative and inclusive future.

Environmental, Social and Governance Principles

In 2023, we increased our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) commitments to align with the makeup of our new company, its values, and the evolving expectations of our stakeholders. As Revvity, it is important that we reset our baselines and goals accordingly to ensure completeness, continued accuracy and transparency. As such, we have shifted to a more comprehensive approach in the way we obtain and analyze all quantitative data relevant to our ESG targets. We utilize our new baseline information to establish ambitious yet realistic ESG goals that will guide our progress and ensure accountability. Through monitoring and transparent reporting, we will continue to drive meaningful change within our operations and for all of our stakeholders.

Over the last year, we have grown our ESG program through several focused actions and activities that we believe will have a profound impact as we continue our sustainability journey as Revvity, including:

Environmental

 

   

Collecting more complete and transparent baseline sustainability metrics. Revvity has committed to submit emission reduction targets for Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) approval in the next 18 months;

 

   

Creating sustainability committees and identifying champions, specifically within logistics, packaging, R&D, operations and the commercial organization, who can help achieve Revvity’s ESG goals;

 

   

Driving key sustainability site projects, such as installing LED lights and solar panels at our sites; and

 

   

Adding more internal resources to further enhance ESG data collection and analysis efforts and help implement next actions across the Company.

Social

 

   

Growing a culture of sustainability through educating and empowering our employees;

 

   

Expanding our equity and inclusion communities on a global, regional and local level;

 

   

Investing in programs and tools that advance the talent management and professional development opportunities for our people; and

 

   

Committing to promoting pay equity within our organization through conducting pay audits and benchmarking.

Governance

 

   

Increasing our external disclosures, including our data, policies, and goals;

 

   

Investing in the latest ESG tools to improve data accuracy, analysis, and transparency; and

 

iv Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement


   

Expanding our policies for various Company topics such as animal welfare, equality and inclusion, bioethics and sustainable procurement.

 PROXY STATEMENT

 

General Information

Why am I receiving these materials?

Revvity, Inc., also referred to as we, us, the Company or Revvity, has prepared this proxy statement to provide our shareholders with information pertaining to the matters to be voted on at our annual meeting of shareholders to be held on Tuesday, April 23, 2024 at 8:00 a.m., on a virtual basis via live webcast at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/RVTY2024, and at any adjournment of that meeting. The date of this proxy statement is March 13, 2024, the approximate date on which we first sent or provided the proxy statement and form of proxy to our shareholders.

Our board of directors has fixed the close of business on February 26, 2024 as the record date for determining the shareholders entitled to receive notice of, and to vote their shares at, the meeting. On the record date, there were 123,524,821 shares of our common stock outstanding and entitled to vote. Each share of common stock carries the right to cast one vote on each of the proposals presented for shareholder action, with no cumulative voting.

Your vote is important no matter how many shares you own. Please take the time to vote. Take a moment to read the instructions below. Choose the way to vote that is easiest and most convenient for you and cast your vote as soon as possible.

How can I vote my shares at, and participate in, the virtual annual meeting?

In an effort to provide our shareholders with enhanced accessibility to the meeting, we will be conducting this year’s annual meeting on a virtual basis. We believe that holding the meeting on a virtual basis will allow for greater participation by shareholders. Shareholders may participate in the annual meeting by visiting the following website: www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/RVTY2024. You will need the 16-digit control number included on your notice, on your proxy card or on the instructions that accompanied your proxy materials. Shares held in your name as the shareholder of record may be voted electronically during the annual meeting. Shares for which you are the beneficial owner but not the shareholder of record may also be voted electronically during the annual meeting. However, even if you plan to attend the meeting on a virtual basis, the Company recommends that you vote your shares in advance, so that your vote will be counted if you later decide not to attend, or are otherwise not able to attend, the meeting. Shareholders attending the meeting on a virtual basis as a guest are not able to vote or ask questions during the meeting.

How can I vote my shares without attending the virtual annual meeting?

To vote your shares without attending the virtual meeting, please follow the instructions for Internet or telephone voting on the proxy card, voting instruction form or notice. If you received your proxy materials by mail, you may also vote by signing and submitting your proxy card and returning it by mail, if you are the shareholder of record, or by signing the voter instruction form provided by your bank or broker and returning it by mail, if you are the beneficial owner but not the shareholder of record. This way, your shares will be represented whether or not you are able to attend the virtual meeting.

What if I want to change my vote?

You may change your vote at any time before it is exercised, which can be done by voting your shares online while virtually attending the annual meeting, or by delivering a new proxy or by notifying the Company Secretary in writing prior to the meeting. If you are not a shareholder of record, but hold shares as a beneficial owner in street name, you must contact the institution serving

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 1


as the registered holder. If voting by Internet or telephone, you may change your vote and revoke your proxy up to 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the day before the meeting by following the instructions on your proxy card or voting instruction form.

What proposals will be voted on at the annual meeting?

The proposals being presented for shareholder action are set forth on your proxy card and are discussed in detail on the following pages. Shares that you have the power to vote that are represented by proxy will be voted at the meeting in accordance with your instructions indicated on the enclosed proxy card or submitted by Internet or telephone.

The first proposal is to elect ten directors for terms of one year each. You may vote for or against each nominee, or may abstain from voting on any nominee, by marking the appropriate box on the proxy card, or submitting instructions by Internet or telephone. If you return a proxy card, or submit instructions by Internet or telephone, your shares will be voted as you indicate. If you sign and return your proxy card or submit instructions by Internet or telephone and make no indication concerning one or more of the nominees, your shares will be voted “FOR” electing those nominees for whom you made no indication.

The second proposal is to ratify the selection of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the current fiscal year ending December 29, 2024. You may vote for or against this proposal or abstain from voting on this proposal by marking the appropriate box on the proxy card or submitting instructions by Internet or telephone. If you return a proxy card or submit instructions by Internet or telephone, your shares will be voted as you indicate. If you sign and return your proxy card or submit instructions by Internet or telephone and make no indication concerning this proposal, your shares will be voted “FOR” the second proposal.

The third proposal is to approve, by non-binding advisory vote, our executive compensation. You may vote for or against this proposal or abstain from voting on this proposal by marking the appropriate box on the proxy card or submitting instructions by Internet or telephone. If you return a proxy card or submit instructions by Internet or telephone, your shares will be voted as you indicate. If you sign and return your proxy card or submit instructions by Internet or telephone and make no indication concerning this proposal, your shares will be voted “FOR” the third proposal.

The fourth proposal has been submitted by a shareholder and if properly presented at the annual meeting and approved, would require that each voting requirement in the Company’s governance documents that calls for a supermajority vote be replaced by a requirement for a majority of the votes cast for and against applicable proposals. You may vote for or against this proposal or abstain from voting on this proposal by marking the appropriate box on the proxy card or submitting instructions by Internet or telephone. If you return a proxy card or submit instructions by Internet or telephone, your shares will be voted as you indicate. If you sign and return your proxy card or submit instructions by Internet or telephone and make no indication concerning this proposal, your shares will be voted “AGAINST” the fourth proposal.

Our management does not anticipate a vote on any other proposal at the meeting. Under Massachusetts law, where we are incorporated, only matters included in the notice of the meeting may be brought before our shareholders at a meeting. If, however, another proposal is properly brought before the meeting, your shares will be voted in accordance with the discretion of the named proxies.

What voting recommendations have been made by the board?

The board of directors recommends that you vote FOR Proposal No. 1 to elect ten nominees for director for terms of one year each; FOR Proposal No. 2 to ratify the selection of Deloitte & Touche LLP as Revvity’s independent registered public accounting firm for the current fiscal year; FOR Proposal

 

2 Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement


No. 3 to approve, on a non-binding advisory basis, our executive compensation; and AGAINST the shareholder submitted Proposal No. 4 to replace each supermajority voting requirement in the Company’s governance documents with a requirement for a majority of the votes cast for and against applicable proposals. If you sign and return the proxy card, but do not give any instructions on a particular matter described in this proxy statement, the shares you own will be voted in accordance with the recommendations of our board of directors.

What if I am a beneficial owner of shares held in “street name”?

If the shares you own are held in “street name” by a bank, broker or other nominee record holder, which, for convenience, we collectively refer to in this proxy statement as brokerage firms, your brokerage firm, as the record holder of your shares, is required to vote your shares according to your instructions. If you attend the virtual meeting, in order to vote your shares held in street name, you will need to follow the directions your brokerage firm provides you as well as enter the control number found on your voting instruction form that you received from your brokerage firm and follow the instructions available on the meeting website during the meeting. Many brokerage firms also offer the option of providing for voting over the Internet or by telephone, instructions for which, if available, would be provided by your brokerage firm on the voting instruction form that it delivers to you. Under the current rules of the New York Stock Exchange, or NYSE, if you do not give instructions to your brokerage firm, it will still be able to vote your shares with respect to certain “discretionary” items, but will not be allowed to vote your shares with respect to certain “non-discretionary” items. The ratification of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm (Proposal No. 2) is considered to be a discretionary item under the NYSE rules, and your brokerage firm will be able to vote on that item even if it does not receive instructions from you, as long as it holds your shares in its name. The election of directors (Proposal No. 1), the approval of our executive compensation program (Proposal No. 3) and the shareholder proposal to replace supermajority voting with a requirement for a majority of the votes cast for and against applicable proposals (Proposal No. 4) are all “non-discretionary” items. If you return an instruction card to your brokerage firm but do not instruct your brokerage firm on how to vote with respect to these items, your brokerage firm will not vote with respect to the proposal(s) for which you did not give instructions, and your shares will be counted as “broker non-votes” with respect to those proposals. “Broker non-votes” are shares that are held in “street name” by a brokerage firm that indicates on its proxy that it does not have or did not exercise discretionary authority to vote on a particular matter.

Who is paying for this solicitation?

This proxy is solicited on behalf of our board of directors. We will bear the expenses connected with this proxy solicitation. We expect to pay brokers, nominees, fiduciaries, and other custodians their reasonable expenses for forwarding proxy materials and annual reports to principals and obtaining their voting instructions. We have engaged Georgeson Inc. of New York, New York to assist us in soliciting proxies from brokers, nominees, fiduciaries, and custodians, and will pay Georgeson approximately $35,000 plus out-of-pocket expenses for its efforts. In addition to the use of the mails, our directors, officers, and employees may, without additional remuneration, solicit proxies in person or by use of other communications media.

We previously mailed to shareholders, or are providing with this proxy statement, our annual report to shareholders for 2023. The annual report is not part of, or incorporated by reference in, this proxy statement.

Important Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials for

the Annual Meeting of Shareholders to Be Held on April 23, 2024:

This proxy statement and the 2023 annual report to shareholders are available at

www.proxyvote.com for viewing, downloading and printing.

A copy of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, except for exhibits, will be furnished without charge to any shareholder upon written or oral request to Revvity, Inc., 940 Winter Street, Waltham, Massachusetts 02451, Attention: Investor Relations, Telephone: (800) 762-4000.

How will materials be delivered to beneficial owners at the same address?

Some brokerage firms may be participating in the practice of “householding” proxy statements, annual reports and notices of Internet availability of proxy materials. This means that only one copy of these documents may have been sent to multiple shareholders in your household. We will promptly deliver a separate copy of any of these documents to you if you request one by writing or calling as follows: Revvity, Inc., 940 Winter Street, Waltham, Massachusetts 02451, Attention: Investor Relations, Telephone: (800) 762-4000. If you want to receive separate copies of our annual report and proxy statement in the future, or if you are receiving multiple copies and would like to receive only one copy for your household, you should contact your brokerage firm, or you may contact us at the above address and phone number.

What are the voting standards?

A majority in interest of all Revvity common stock issued, outstanding and entitled to vote on each proposal being submitted for shareholder action at the meeting constitutes a quorum with respect to that proposal. Shares of common stock represented by executed proxies received by us will be counted for purposes of establishing a quorum, regardless of how or whether those shares are voted on the proposal. Therefore, abstentions and broker non-votes are counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum exists at the meeting for that proposal.

For a nominee to be elected as a director pursuant to Proposal No. 1, more votes must be cast for such nominee’s election than against such nominee’s election. For the ratification of our independent registered public accounting firm pursuant to Proposal No. 2, the majority of the votes cast on Proposal No. 2 must be cast for the ratification. For the approval, by non-binding vote, of our executive compensation program pursuant to Proposal No. 3, the majority of the votes cast on Proposal No. 3 must be cast in favor of the executive compensation program. For the approval of the shareholder proposal for majority voting in Proposal No. 4, the majority of the votes cast on Proposal No. 4 must be cast in favor of the shareholder proposal. Shares abstaining and broker non-votes, if any, will not be counted as votes for or against, and as a result will have no effect on voting on these proposals, other than for purposes of establishing a quorum.

Although the advisory vote on Proposal No. 3 is non-binding, as provided by law, our board values shareholders’ opinions and will take the results of the vote into account when considering any changes to our executive compensation program.

 PROPOSAL NO. 1 ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

Our charter and By-laws provide that the shareholders or the board of directors will determine the number of directors to serve on our board as not fewer than three or more than thirteen. Our nominees for directors are each elected for a one-year term at the annual meeting of shareholders in accordance with our charter and By-laws. We currently have eleven directors, all of whose terms expire at this meeting. Dr. Sylvie Grégoire has previously informed the Company that she is not standing for re-election to our board at the 2024 annual meeting of shareholders.

Our board of directors, upon the recommendation of its nominating and corporate governance committee, has nominated the following persons for election as directors for one-year terms, each expiring at the annual meeting of shareholders to be held in 2025. All of the nominees are currently directors of the Company and, with the exception of Mr. Klobuchar and Dr. Vandebroek, were elected by our shareholders at the 2023 annual meeting. Our board of directors elected Mr. Klobuchar and Dr. Vandebroek to each serve as a director beginning in February 2024. Mr. Klobuchar and Dr. Vandebroek were each initially recommended as nominees for director by non-management directors.

Director Qualification Matrix

The members of the board have a diversity of experience and a wide variety of backgrounds, skills, qualifications and viewpoints that strengthen their ability to carry out their oversight role on behalf of our shareholders. The following matrix is provided to illustrate the knowledge, skills and experience of the nominees for director to serve on our board. The matrix does not encompass all of the knowledge, skills and experience of our directors, and the fact that a particular knowledge, skill or experience is not listed does not mean that a director does not possess it. In addition, the absence of a particular knowledge, skill or experience with respect to any of our directors does not mean the director in question is unable to contribute to the decision-making process in that area. However, a mark indicates a specific area of focus or expertise that the director brings to our board. More information on each director’s qualifications and background is included in the director biographies on the following pages. We regularly review the attributes required of board members in order to better facilitate the Company’s long-term goals, operational performance, corporate culture and to promote diversity and inclusiveness.

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE “FOR”

ELECTING EACH OF THE TEN NOMINEES NAMED ABOVE FOR TERMS OF ONE YEAR EACH.

The persons named as proxies on the proxy card will vote shares represented by a proxy for the election of the ten nominees for terms of one year each unless the shareholder instructs otherwise on their proxy card. Our board of directors knows of no reason why any nominee should be unable or unwilling to serve. However, if that becomes the case, the persons named as proxies on the proxy card may vote to elect a substitute. In no event will shares represented by proxies be voted for more than ten nominees.

To apprise you of their qualifications to serve as directors, we include the following information concerning each of the director nominees. The qualifications presented include information each nominee has provided to us regarding age, current positions held, principal occupation and business experience for the past five years, as well as the names of other publicly held companies of which the nominee currently serves as a director or has served as a director during the past five years. In addition to the information presented regarding each nominee’s specific experience, qualifications, attributes and skills that led the nominating and corporate governance committee to recommend that our board nominate these individuals, our board believes that all of the nominees have a reputation for honesty, integrity and adherence to high ethical standards. The nominating and corporate governance committee also believes that the nominees possess the willingness to engage management and each other in a positive and collaborative fashion, and are prepared to make the significant commitment of time and energy to serve on our board and its committees.

 INFORMATION RELATING TO OUR BOARD OF

 DIRECTORS AND ITS COMMITTEES

 

Determination of Independence

Our common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Under current NYSE rules, a director of Revvity qualifies as “independent” only if our board of directors affirmatively determines that the director has no material relationship with Revvity, either directly or as a partner, shareholder or officer of an organization that has a relationship with Revvity. Our board of directors evaluates the independence of our directors on an annual basis. In evaluating potentially material relationships, our board considers commercial, industrial, banking, counseling, legal, accounting, charitable and familial relationships, among others. Our board of directors has determined that none of Messrs. Chapin, Klobuchar, Michas, or Vounatsos, Ms. Witz, or Drs. Barrett, McMurry-Heath, Vandebroek or Witney, has a material relationship with Revvity, and also that each of these directors is “independent” as determined under Section 303A.02(b) of the NYSE Listed Company Manual.

Director Candidates

Our shareholders may recommend director candidates for inclusion by the board of directors in the slate of nominees the board recommends to our shareholders for election. The qualifications of recommended candidates will be reviewed by the nominating and corporate governance committee. If the board determines to nominate a shareholder-recommended candidate and recommends his or her election as a director by the shareholders, the name will be included on our proxy card for the shareholders’ meeting at which his or her election is recommended.

Shareholders may recommend individuals for the nominating and corporate governance committee to consider as potential director candidates by submitting their names, together with appropriate biographical information and background materials, and a statement as to whether the shareholder or group of shareholders making the recommendation has beneficially owned more than 5% of our common stock for at least a year as of the date such recommendation is made. Materials should be mailed to the “Revvity Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee” c/o Office of the General Counsel, Revvity, Inc., 940 Winter Street, Waltham, Massachusetts 02451. The nominating and corporate governance committee will consider a proposed director candidate only if appropriate biographical information and background material are provided on a timely basis. The process followed by the nominating and corporate governance committee to identify and evaluate candidates may include requests to board members and others for recommendations, meetings from time to time to evaluate biographical information and background material relating to potential candidates, and interviews of selected candidates by members of the nominating and corporate governance committee and the board of directors. Assuming that appropriate biographical and background material are provided for candidates recommended by shareholders, the nominating and corporate governance committee will evaluate those candidates by following substantially the same process as outlined above, and applying substantially the same criteria, as for candidates submitted by board members.

Shareholders also have the right under our By-laws to nominate director candidates directly, without any action or recommendation on the part of the nominating and corporate governance committee or our board, by following the process for shareholder proposals for election of directors set forth in our By-laws and discussed in “Shareholder Proposals for 2025 Annual Meeting of Shareholders,” below. Candidates nominated by shareholders in accordance with these procedures will not be included in our proxy card for the shareholder meeting at which his or her nomination is recommended.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 13


Criteria and Diversity

In considering whether to recommend any candidate for inclusion in the board of directors’ slate of recommended director nominees, including candidates recommended by shareholders, the nominating and corporate governance committee will apply the criteria set forth in Revvity’s corporate governance guidelines and such other factors as the committee deems appropriate. These criteria include the candidate’s experience, skills, and independence. In evaluating a candidate’s experience and skills, the nominating and corporate governance committee may also consider qualities such as an understanding of technologies, marketing, finance, regulation and public policy, and international issues. In evaluating a candidate’s independence, the nominating and corporate governance committee will consider the applicable independence standards of the NYSE and the Securities and Exchange Commission. The nominating and corporate governance committee will evaluate each director candidate in the context of the perceived needs of the board, the best interests of Revvity and its shareholders, as well as our corporate governance guidelines which specify that the composition of the board should reflect diversity. Accordingly, the nominating and corporate governance committee seeks nominees with a broad range of experience, professions, skills and backgrounds. The nominating and corporate governance committee does not assign specific weights to particular criteria, and no particular criterion is necessarily applicable to all prospective nominees. We believe that the backgrounds and qualifications of the directors, considered as a group, should provide a significant composite mix of experience, knowledge and abilities that will allow our board to fulfill its responsibilities. Nominees are not discriminated against on the basis of race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or any other basis proscribed by law.

The nominating and corporate governance committee, as part of its annual assessment of board performance, reviews the diversity of experience, attributes and skills considered necessary for the optimal functioning of the board. The committee reviews the experience, attributes and skills currently represented on the board, as well as those areas where a change could improve the overall quality of our board and the ability of the board to perform its responsibilities. The committee then establishes those areas that could be the focus of a director search, if necessary. The nominating and corporate governance committee’s annual evaluation process represents an in-depth and personalized approach to assessing both the effectiveness of the board as a whole and each member of the board on an individual basis. Included as a component of the board’s annual self-evaluation is a review of the board’s diverse mix of experience, attributes and skills.

Each member of the board of directors is required to limit the number of other public company boards on which they serve so that they are able to devote adequate time to their duties to the Company, including preparing for and attending meetings of the board and any committees on which they serve. No director may serve on more than three other public company boards (and in the case of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, no more than one other public company board), in addition to the Company’s board, unless such service is specifically approved in advance by a majority of the board. Directors are required to advise the Chair of the nominating and corporate governance committee in advance of accepting any invitation to serve on another public company board and to provide sufficient opportunity and information to confirm that the director who proposes to accept a new directorship remains independent. Service on boards of other organizations is required to comply with the Company’s conflict of interest policies.

Leadership Structure

Our board of directors selects a Chairman of the board by evaluating the criteria and using a process that the board considers to be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders, pursuant to our corporate governance guidelines. Our board of directors does not have a fixed policy on whether the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman should be separate positions or whether the Chairman should be an employee or non-employee. Currently, Mr. Michas serves as our Non-Executive Chairman and Dr. Singh serves as our Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Michas has been a member of our board since 2001 and has served as Non-Executive Chairman since December 30, 2019, having most

 

14 Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement


recently served as our Lead Director. In addition to his years of experience on our board, Mr. Michas brings to the role a wealth of corporate governance knowledge developed in his board roles with other public companies. Dr. Singh joined the Company in 2014 and has held a number of senior leadership positions. Dr. Singh was elected to our board in 2019 and has served as our Chief Executive Officer since December 30, 2019. We believe that the Company will benefit from separating the roles of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer by allowing each individual to focus on their respective areas of responsibility. As Non-Executive Chairman, Mr. Michas’ primary responsibilities include presiding at meetings of our board of directors, reviewing and assisting in setting the agenda and schedule for meetings of our board of directors, advising the committee chairs in performing their responsibilities, initiating and chairing meetings of the independent directors, and counseling the Chief Executive Officer and directors as needed. Our board holds executive sessions of the independent directors preceding or following each regularly scheduled board meeting. We believe that the current leadership structure, through the combination of Dr. Singh’s knowledge of the Company as Chief Executive Officer and Mr. Michas’ demonstrated understanding of the role played by the chair of a public company board of directors, allows the Chief Executive Officer to set the overall direction of the Company and provide day-to-day leadership, while having the benefit of the Non-Executive Chairman’s counsel and corporate governance experience. In addition, separation of the roles of Non-Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer encourages a greater role for the independent directors in the oversight of the Company and in their representation of shareholders’ interests.

Communications from Shareholders and Other Interested Parties

Our board of directors will give appropriate attention to written communications on issues that are submitted by shareholders and other interested parties, and will respond if and as appropriate.

Shareholders and other interested parties who wish to communicate with our entire board, or with our non-management directors, may do so by writing to Alexis P. Michas, Non-Executive Chairman, Revvity, Inc., 940 Winter Street, Waltham, Massachusetts 02451. Communications will be forwarded to other directors if the communications relate to substantive matters that the Non-Executive Chairman, in consultation with our General Counsel, considers appropriate for attention by the other directors. In general, communications relating to corporate governance and long-term corporate strategy are more likely to be forwarded than communications relating to ordinary business affairs, personal grievances or matters as to which we tend to receive repetitive or duplicative communications.

Board of Directors’ Role in Risk Oversight

Our board of directors has an active role in overseeing risks that could affect the Company, including operational, financial, legal and regulatory, and strategic and reputational risks. This oversight is conducted primarily through the audit committee, which has been assigned responsibility for enterprise risk management and reports regularly to our board on such matters. Senior management carries out the functional performance of enterprise risk management activities, with access to external service providers as needed. This process includes periodic reporting by management to the audit committee in order to systematically identify, analyze, prioritize and document potential business risks, their potential impact on the Company’s performance, and the Company’s ability to detect, manage, control and prevent these risks. When the audit committee receives a report from senior management, the Chair of the audit committee reports on the discussion to the full board during the next board meeting. This enables the board and its committees to coordinate the overall risk oversight role, particularly with respect to risk areas that may potentially impact more than one committee of the board of directors.

In addition to the role our audit committee plays in overseeing enterprise risk management activities, our compensation and benefits committee monitors the design and implementation of our compensation programs to ensure that these programs include the elements needed to motivate employees to take a long-term view of the business and to avoid encouraging unnecessary risk taking.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 15


Based on a functional review of our compensation policies and practices as performed by senior management in consultation with our compensation and benefits committee, we do not believe that any risks arising from our employee compensation programs are likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company.

The audit committee also oversees management’s evaluation of risks posed by cybersecurity and related information technology issues to the Company’s operational performance. This role includes engaging with senior management in a periodic review and assessment of the Company’s cybersecurity, information security, data privacy and technology risks, and the Company’s policies and procedures to assess, monitor, manage and mitigate these risks.

The nominating and corporate governance committee oversees the Company’s corporate responsibility and sustainability efforts, which includes the impact of environmental and social issues on the Company. This includes engaging with senior management, and considering input from our shareholders and other stakeholders on what are commonly referred to as ESG issues, on a periodic basis to review and assess our policies and procedures in this area. The nominating and corporate governance committee reports any notable trends or issues back to the full board on a regular basis for further review. We believe that this level of oversight is appropriate and in the best interests of the Company and our shareholders given the high degree of importance that we place on advancing our environmental, social and governance strategy.

Board of Directors Meetings and Committees

Our board of directors has responsibility for establishing broad corporate policies and for reviewing overall performance, rather than day-to-day operations. The board’s primary responsibility is to oversee the management of the Company and, in so doing, serve the best interests of our Company and its shareholders. The board selects, evaluates and provides for the succession of our executive officers. It reviews and approves corporate objectives and strategies, and evaluates significant policies and proposed major commitments of corporate resources. It participates in decisions that have a potential major economic impact on Revvity. Management keeps the directors informed of Company activity through regular written reports and presentations at board and committee meetings. The board participates in an annual self-evaluation process.

Our board of directors met six times in fiscal 2023. During fiscal 2023, each director attended 75% or more of the total combined number of meetings of the board and the committees of which such director was a member. Members of our board of directors are strongly encouraged to attend our annual meeting of shareholders utilizing available technology. In 2023, all but one of our directors attended our annual meeting of shareholders, which was conducted in a hybrid meeting format.

Dr. Singh is the only director who is also an employee of Revvity. He does not participate in the portions of any meetings at which his compensation is determined.

Our board’s standing committees are audit, nominating and corporate governance, and compensation and benefits. Each committee has a charter that has been approved by the board. Each committee must review the appropriateness of its charter and perform a self-evaluation at least annually. You can access our committee charters, corporate governance guidelines and our standards of business conduct under “Company–Governance” on our website, www.revvity.com, or you may request a copy by writing to Revvity, Inc., 940 Winter Street, Waltham, Massachusetts 02451, Attention: Investor Relations.

Audit Committee

Our audit committee assists the board of directors in overseeing the integrity of our financial statements, our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, our independent registered public accounting firm’s qualifications and independence, risk assessment, the performance of our internal audit function and our independent registered public accounting firm. Our audit committee also considers and approves the specific terms of debt and equity securities to be issued by Revvity, indebtedness and off-balance sheet transactions to be entered into by Revvity, and also considers and approves transactions affecting our capital structure. The current members of our audit committee are Mr. Chapin (Chair), Mr. Vounatsos, Ms. Witz and Dr. McMurry-Heath. Our board of directors has determined that each of Messrs. Chapin and Vounatsos, Ms. Witz and Dr. McMurry-Heath qualify as an “audit committee financial expert” as defined by applicable rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Each of Messrs. Chapin and Vounatsos, Ms. Witz and Dr. McMurry-Heath is an “independent director” under the rules of the NYSE governing the qualifications of the members of audit committees, including the additional independence requirements of Rule 10A-3 for audit committees under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which we refer to in this proxy statement as the Exchange Act. In addition, our board has determined that each member of the audit committee is financially literate, and that Mr. Chapin has accounting and/or related financial management expertise as required under the rules of the NYSE. None of Mr. Chapin, Mr. Vounatsos, Ms. Witz or Dr. McMurry-Heath serves on the audit committees of more than two other public companies. The audit committee held eight meetings during fiscal 2023.

Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee

Our nominating and corporate governance committee identifies qualified director candidates, recommends to the board of directors the persons to be nominated by the board as directors at the annual meeting of shareholders, reviews and recommends changes to our corporate governance principles and to our corporate responsibility and sustainability efforts, including the impact of environmental and social issues on the Company, and oversees the evaluation of the board. Our nominating and corporate governance committee also adopted and oversees our related party transactions policy. The current members of the nominating and corporate governance committee are Mr. Vounatsos (Chair) and Drs. Barrett, Grégoire and Witney. The board has determined that each of Mr. Vounatsos and Drs. Barrett, Grégoire and Witney is independent as defined under the rules of the NYSE. The nominating and corporate governance committee has the authority under its charter to retain, review fees for, and terminate advisors and consultants as it deems necessary to assist in the fulfillment of its responsibilities. For information relating to nominations of directors by our shareholders, see “Director Candidates” above. For information concerning our related party transactions policy, see “Certain Relationships and Policies on Related Party Transactions” below. Our nominating and corporate governance committee met three times during fiscal 2023.

Compensation and Benefits Committee

Our compensation and benefits committee discharges the responsibilities of our board relating to the compensation and benefits of our Chief Executive Officer and our other executive officers, and reviews and makes recommendations to the nominating and corporate governance committee regarding director compensation. The compensation and benefits committee also oversees the performance evaluation of our Chief Executive Officer by our board. In addition, the compensation and benefits committee grants equity (stock options, restricted shares and other stock incentives) to our officers and administers our incentive compensation and executive benefit plans. The compensation and benefits committee also reviews and approves recommendations from our management-run administrative committee concerning terminations of broad-based, non-executive benefit plans, as well as material design changes to those plans that would result in significant cost or increased risk to the Company.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 17


The current members of the compensation and benefits committee are Dr. Barrett (Chair), Drs. Grégoire and Witney and Ms. Witz. Our board has determined that each of Drs. Barrett, Grégoire and Witney and Ms. Witz is independent as defined under the rules of the NYSE regarding independence of compensation committee members. Our compensation and benefits committee held six meetings during fiscal year 2023.

The compensation and benefits committee has the authority under its charter to directly retain, review fees for, and terminate advisors and consultants as it deems necessary to assist in the fulfillment of its responsibilities. The committee has retained Pearl Meyer & Partners, LLC as its independent compensation consultant to assist the committee with its responsibilities related to our executive and board compensation programs. The Compensation Discussion and Analysis in this proxy statement provides additional information regarding the compensation and benefits committee’s processes and procedures for evaluating and determining executive officer compensation.

Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation

For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, the members of the compensation and benefits committee were Dr. Barrett (Chair), Drs. Grégoire and Witney and Ms. Witz.

Audit Fees

These are fees related to professional services rendered in connection with the audit of our annual financial statements, the reviews of the interim financial statements included in each of our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, and other professional services provided by our independent registered public accounting firm in connection with statutory or regulatory filings or engagements.

Audit-Related Fees

These are fees for assurance and related services that are reasonably related to performance of the audit and review of our financial statements, and which are not reported under “Audit Fees.” These services consisted primarily of audits of employee benefit plans, and for fiscal 2023, attestation services for such matters as required for consents related to registration statements and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Tax Fees

These are fees billed for professional services for tax compliance, tax advice and tax planning services. Tax compliance services which relate to preparation of original and amended US and non-US corporate income tax returns (fees for which amounted to $243,000 in fiscal 2023 and $410,000 in fiscal 2022) and expatriate tax return preparation and assistance (fees for which amounted to $4,000 in fiscal 2023 and $0 in fiscal 2022) accounted for $247,000 of the total tax fees paid for in fiscal 2023 and $410,000 of the total tax fees paid for in fiscal 2022. Tax advice and planning services, including consultations on foreign transactions, assistance with tax audits and appeals, tax advice related to reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions, employee benefit plans and requests for rulings or technical advice from taxing authorities, amounted to $3,810,000 in fiscal 2023 and $4,674,000 in fiscal 2022.

All Other Fees

Fees paid or incurred for other services amounted to $15,000 in fiscal 2023 and $5,000 in fiscal 2022.

Audit Committee’s Pre-approval Policy and Procedures

The audit committee of our board of directors has adopted policies and procedures for the pre-approval of audit and non-audit services for the purpose of maintaining the independence of our independent registered public accounting firm. We may not engage our independent registered public accounting firm to render any audit or non-audit service unless either the service is approved in advance by the audit committee, or the engagement to render the service is entered into pursuant to the audit committee’s pre-approval policies and procedures. On an annual basis, the audit committee

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 19


may pre-approve services that are expected to be provided to Revvity by the independent registered public accounting firm during the following 12 months. At the time such pre-approval is granted, the audit committee must (1) identify the particular pre-approved services in a sufficient level of detail so that our management will not be called upon to make a judgment as to whether a proposed service fits within the pre-approved services and (2) establish a monetary limit with respect to the total pre-approved services, which limit may not be exceeded without obtaining further pre-approval under the policy.

Our management periodically provides the audit committee updates of proposed services for pre-approval. Any additional services which fall outside the scope of the annual service review process require advance approval by the audit committee. The audit committee may delegate to one or more designated members of the committee the authority to grant pre-approvals of permitted services, or classes of permitted services, to be provided by the independent registered public accounting firm. The decisions of a designated member to pre-approve a permitted service are reported to the audit committee at its next regularly scheduled meeting. While controls have been established to identify all services rendered by the independent registered public accounting firm, the audit committee recognizes that there may be some “de minimis” services provided that, while considered permitted services, may not be identified as non-audit services or reported immediately because of their “de minimis” nature. Such services may be approved prior to the completion of the audit by either the audit committee, or a designated member of the audit committee.

Certain Relationships and Policies on Related Party Transactions

The nominating and corporate governance committee of our board of directors has adopted written policies and procedures for the review of any transaction, arrangement or relationship in which Revvity was or is to be a participant, and in which one of our executive officers, directors, director nominees or 5% stockholders (or their immediate family members), or any entity in which persons listed above, either individually or in the aggregate, has a greater than 10% ownership interest, each of whom we refer to as a “related party,” has or will have a direct or indirect material interest, as determined by the committee. We refer to these transactions as “related party transactions.”

The policy calls for any proposed related party transaction to be reviewed and, if deemed appropriate, approved by our nominating and corporate governance committee. Whenever practicable, the review and approval will occur prior to entry into the transaction. If advance approval is not practicable, the committee will review, and, in its discretion, may approve the related party transaction. The policy also permits the Chair of the committee to review and, if deemed appropriate, approve proposed related party transactions that arise between committee meetings, in which case the Chair will report such transactions to the committee at its next meeting. Any related party transactions that are ongoing in nature will be reviewed annually. The committee will review and consider such information regarding the related party transaction as it deems appropriate under the circumstances.

The committee has determined that certain types of transactions, such as those excluded by the instructions to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s related person transaction disclosure rule, do not create a material direct or indirect interest on behalf of related parties and, therefore, are not related party transactions for purposes of this policy.

The committee may approve a related party transaction only if the committee determines that, under all of the circumstances, the transaction is in the best interest of Revvity and its shareholders.

Anti-Hedging Policy

In addition to prohibiting trading while in possession of material non-public information, our securities trading policy prohibits all employees and members of our board from engaging in the following types of transactions with respect to our securities:

 

   

engaging in “short” sales and “selling against the box”; or

 

   

trading in puts, calls, straddles, options or any other form of derivative securities; or

 

   

directly or indirectly engaging in hedging or monetization activities with respect to our securities including through purchases of financial instruments (such as prepaid variable forward contracts, equity swaps, collars and exchange funds) or other transactions that hedge or offset, or are designed to hedge or offset, any decrease in the market value of our securities.

Also, our officers may not pledge any shares of our stock or hold company securities in a margin account.

 DIRECTOR COMPENSATION

 

Our director compensation program is designed to provide a competitive level of compensation and to enable Revvity to attract and retain highly qualified board members. Annual compensation for our non-employee directors consists of a cash retainer and equity compensation. Our board service year begins on the date of our annual meeting of shareholders.

Our non-employee directors were paid the compensation described below for their service during the 2023 board service year.

Annual Cash Retainer

Each of our current non-employee directors was paid an annual cash retainer of $90,000 in four quarterly installments. Quarterly cash retainer installments are paid in May, August, November and February, which is the first month of each of the successive three-month periods following the annual meeting of shareholders.

Our Non-Executive Chairman and the Chairs of our audit, compensation and benefits, and nominating and corporate governance committees were each paid an additional retainer in recognition of the further responsibilities carried by these roles. For 2023, our Non-Executive Chairman was paid an additional annual cash retainer of $90,000 and the Chairs of our audit, compensation and benefits, and nominating and corporate governance committees were paid additional annual cash retainers of $25,000, $20,000 and $15,000, respectively.

The cash retainer is prorated to the nearest whole month for non-employee directors who serve for only a portion of the year. The retainer is also prorated for any director who attends fewer than 75% of the aggregate of the meetings of our board and the meetings of committees on which the director is a member. All of our directors fulfilled the meeting requirement in fiscal year 2023.

Equity Compensation

Our non-employee directors receive a portion of their annual compensation in the form of equity grants in two parts. A portion of the annual equity compensation is delivered in the form of an award of our common stock. The second portion is delivered in the form of a grant of restricted stock units, or RSUs, which vest 100% on the first anniversary of the date of grant. Each component of our non-employee equity compensation program is described in more detail below.

Stock Awards: In 2023, the Non-Executive Chairman was awarded 1,372 shares and each of the other non-employee directors was awarded 955 shares of our common stock with a fair market value of $158,109 and $110,054, respectively. The number of shares granted was determined by dividing the target grant value by the closing price of our stock on the date of grant. The target amounts from which the grant amounts were calculated were $158,000 and $110,000, respectively. The granted shares are not subject to restrictions or vesting. We granted these awards on May 15, 2023, the annual grant date, which was the first day of the open trading window following our first quarter earnings release.

Restricted Stock Units: In 2023, the Non-Executive Chairman was awarded a grant of 1,061 RSUs and each of the other non-employee directors was awarded a grant of 783 RSUs with a fair market value of $121,973 and $90,014, respectively. The target amounts from which the grant amounts were calculated were $122,000 and $90,000, respectively. Each RSU entitles the holder to receive one share of our common stock upon vesting. The number of RSUs granted was determined by dividing the target fair market value by the Black-Scholes value of an RSU on the date of grant. We granted these awards on May 15, 2023, the annual grant date. The annual RSU grant will fully vest on the scheduled date for our next annual meeting of shareholders, subject to the director’s continued service through such date or, if earlier, upon the director’s death, disability or qualifying retirement, or the termination of the director’s service within 12 months following a change in control.

NOTES

 

(1)

Directors who are employees of Revvity receive no additional compensation for their services as directors. Dr. Prahlad R. Singh, who serves on our board, was compensated in his capacity as our Chief Executive Officer and did not receive any additional compensation for his service as a director in 2023. His compensation is reported in the Summary Compensation Table.

 

(2)

Variations in cash retainer amounts paid to individual directors in 2023 reflect additional retainer amounts paid to our Non-Executive Chairman and directors holding committee Chair roles. Annual cash retainer values are paid quarterly in May, August, November and February.

 

(3)

The grant date fair value of the annual RSU grant to our Non-Executive Chairman and to each non-employee director in 2023 was $121,973 and $90,014 respectively. The annual RSU grants will fully vest on the scheduled date for our next annual meeting of shareholders, subject to the director’s continued service through such date or, if earlier, upon the director’s death, disability or qualifying retirement, or the termination of the director’s service within 12 months following a change in control. The grant date fair value of the annual share grant to our Non-Executive Chairman and to each non-employee director in 2023 was $158,109 and $110,054 respectively, and these shares were not subject to restriction or vesting. The amounts reported in this column represent the aggregate grant date fair value of awards of RSUs and shares granted to each listed director in fiscal year 2023. For a more detailed description of the assumptions used for purposes of determining grant date fair value, see Note 17 to the consolidated financial statements in our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023.

 

(4)

Each of our non-employee directors held unvested restricted stock units as of December 31, 2023 as follows: Mr. Michas: 1,061; Drs. Barrett, Grégoire, McMurry-Heath and Witney: 783; Messrs. Chapin and Vounatsos: 783; and Ms. Witz: 783. None of our non-employee directors held stock options as of December 31, 2023. Our non-employee directors receive annual share grants which are not subject to restriction and therefore held no shares of restricted stock as of December 31, 2023. Revvity common stock held by each of our non-employee directors as of February 16, 2024 is reported under “Beneficial Ownership of Common Stock” below.

 

(5)

Amounts in this column are related to matching charitable donations made on behalf of the director by the Revvity Foundation.

New Director Compensation

New non-employee directors who serve for only a portion of the board service year receive a cash retainer and annual equity grants prorated to reflect the period he or she is anticipated to serve on our board during that year.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 23


Business Travel Accident Insurance

Non-employee directors are provided with $250,000 of death benefit coverage under Revvity’s business travel accident insurance policy which provides coverage while traveling on Revvity business.

Revvity Foundation for Charitable Giving

Non-employee directors are eligible for up to a $5,000 per year match of their donations to eligible charities.

Director Stock Ownership Guidelines

Within five years of election to our board, we expect each non-employee director to own Revvity stock with a fair market value equal to at least five times the annual cash retainer. For fiscal 2023, this value was $450,000 for all non-employee directors. As of February 16, 2024, all of our directors were in compliance with our stock ownership guidelines. See “Beneficial Ownership of Common Stock” below for the beneficial stock ownership of our directors.

Changes to Director Compensation

Our compensation and benefits committee reviews and makes recommendations to the nominating and corporate governance committee regarding director compensation and director compensation policies on a bi-annual basis. As part of these periodic reviews, the compensation and benefits committee obtains data and analyses from an independent compensation consultant with respect to director compensation programs at a number of companies identified by the compensation and benefits committee and the compensation consultant as industry peers. Our director compensation, including annual retainers and equity awards, is therefore subject to adjustment.

No changes to director compensation were made for the 2023 board year. On October 26, 2023, our board approved changes to director compensation that will go into effect on April 23, 2024, the date of our 2024 annual meeting of shareholders. The fair market value of the annual equity retainer grants for each director was increased by $25,000 to $225,000 from the current retainer of $200,000. No changes were made to annual cash retainer amounts or to the fair market value of the annual equity retainer grant for the Non-Executive Chairman.

Compensation for the Non-Executive Chairman and compensation for directors for board years 2022 and 2023 was determined based on a comprehensive analysis of non-employee director compensation at a group of companies identified by the compensation and benefits committee’s compensation consultant and the compensation and benefits committee as our peers (which was the same group of peer companies used by the committee in its evaluation of executive compensation for fiscal 2022). These recommendations were intended to align our board compensation with market practice, which enables us to continue to attract and retain highly qualified board members. Please refer to “Compensation Discussion and Analysis — Determining Executive Pay — External Market Practices” for more information about the peer group used in connection with determining 2023 compensation.

 EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

 

Compensation Discussion and Analysis

Revvity is a leading provider of health science solutions, technologies, expertise and services that deliver complete workflows from discovery to development, and diagnosis to cure. Revvity is revolutionizing what’s possible in healthcare, with specialized focus areas in translational multi-omics technologies, biomarker identification, imaging, prediction, screening, detection and diagnosis, informatics and more.

The structure of our executive compensation program supports our business strategy by driving top-line growth while remaining focused on profitability, productivity, investment opportunities and creating sustainable market positions for our products, technology and services. We believe this enhances the value of our shareholders’ investment and, over time, will generate sustainable shareholder value through stock price appreciation.

Our named executive officers for fiscal year 2023 are as follows:

 

   

Prahlad R. Singh: President and Chief Executive Officer

 

   

Maxwell Krakowiak: Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

 

   

Joel S. Goldberg: Senior Vice President, Administration, General Counsel and Secretary

 

   

Tajinder S. Vohra: Senior Vice President, Global Operations

 

   

Miriame Victor: Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer

Executive Summary

To provide context for the full description of our executive compensation programs that follows, we highlight below key information and achievements that impacted our executive compensation program for 2023 and future periods.

2023 Performance Highlights

During fiscal year 2023, our team overcame industrywide headwinds leading to top quartile and differentiated financial results for the year. Our performance in the face of an evolving macro environment is both a testament to the hard work of our incredible team and the result of the transformation that has taken place at our Company in recent years, not only from a portfolio composition standpoint, but also from an operational agility and collaboration perspective. Highlights of our fiscal year 2023 performance include:

 

   

GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.44 for fiscal year 2023, as compared to GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations of $4.06 for fiscal year 2022. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations for fiscal year 2023 was $4.65, as compared to $6.92 in fiscal year 2022.

 

   

GAAP revenue for fiscal year 2023 of $2,751 million, as compared to $3,312 million in fiscal year 2022.

 

   

GAAP operating income from continuing operations for fiscal year 2023 of $301 million, as compared to $743 million in fiscal year 2022.

 

   

GAAP operating profit margin from continuing operations was 10.9% as a percentage of revenue for fiscal year 2023, as compared to 22.4% for fiscal year 2022.

A reconciliation of our GAAP results to the non-GAAP financial measure set forth above, adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations, can be found in Appendix A to this proxy statement.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 27


Compensation Outcomes.Short- and long-term incentive plan payments made to our named executive officers were aligned with our financial results in 2023 as follows:

2023 Global Incentive Compensation Program (Global ICP). Achievement against 2023 Global ICP corporate financial goals for fiscal 2023 was 17%. Fiscal year 2023 performance relative to our Global ICP goals is described further under “Short-Term Incentive Program” below.

2021 Long-Term Incentive Program (LTIP). The three-year performance period under our 2021 LTIP concluded in fiscal year 2023, resulting in the vesting and payment of performance restricted stock units, or PRSUs, granted in 2021. Adjusted revenue and adjusted earnings per share performance for the three-year period from 2021-2023 resulted in 137% achievement against 2021 LTIP financial goals. We define adjusted revenue as GAAP revenue, including purchase accounting adjustments for revenue from contracts acquired in acquisitions that will not be fully recognized due to accounting rules. PRSU goals and payments under the 2021 LTIP are described further under “Long-Term Incentive Program” below.

We believe sustained performance against the combination of revenue and profitability financial goals represented in our executive incentive plans, as well as continued execution against our strategic goals, will create value for our shareholders over the long term.

Compensation Best Practices. We employ the following policies and practices that are designed to ensure our executive compensation programs are well-governed, reflect market-based best practices and do not promote inappropriate risk-taking. The committee regularly reviews our executive compensation programs to ensure they are designed to reflect market-based best practices, effectively support the achievement of our financial and strategic goals, and do not promote inappropriate risk-taking. Our compensation practices include the following:

 

 

   
What We Do       x What We Don’t Do
   
Clawback policy on incentive plans and certain stock option gains     No hedging or pledging of company stock
   
Meaningful stock ownership guidelines for our executives and directors     No excise tax gross-ups (new employment agreements entered into after July 2010)
   
Regular review of executive compensation and benefit program     No option repricing without stockholder approval
   
Independent Compensation and Benefits committee. Regular meetings in executive session without management     No unnecessary risk-taking in our compensation programs
   
Retain independent third-party compensation consultant     No single trigger equity vesting upon change in control (new employment agreements entered into after February 2010)
 
Annual shareholder advisory vote on executive compensation program    
 
Significant portion of executive compensation tied to company performance    
 
Annual compensation risk assessment process    
 
Evaluation of executive compensation occurs annually against a competitive company peer group    

 

28 Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement


Shareholder Engagement.Our board adopted the recommendation of our shareholders to hold annual shareholder advisory votes on our executive compensation program, consistent with the outcome of the shareholder votes on the frequency of such votes at the 2011, 2017 and 2023 annual meetings of shareholders. At our 2023 annual meeting of shareholders, we held our annual shareholder advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers, or “say-on-pay” vote, as required by Section 14A of the Exchange Act. At the meeting, 95.2% of the shareholder votes cast were in favor of our say-on-pay proposal.

In advance of the say-on-pay vote, our management extended invitations to discuss our 2023 proxy statement, including the compensation discussion and analysis and our executive compensation program, to each of our twenty-five largest investors at that time (ranked by percentage owned of shares outstanding) to solicit their feedback and answer their questions. We have proactively extended this invitation to our largest investors on an annual basis for more than fifteen years, and plan to continue to do so in the future. Additionally, we also extend invitations to this same group of investors later in the year to provide feedback in connection with the release of our Environmental, Social, & Governance Report.

Neither management nor the committee received feedback at the time from our investors suggesting specific changes to our executive compensation program during fiscal 2023. The committee also observed that 95.2% of the shareholder votes cast on the say-on-pay proposal at our 2023 annual meeting of shareholders were in support of our executive compensation program, consistent with a history of investor support for our executive compensation program.

Subsequent to the annual meeting, we continued to engage in a variety of investor outreach events including the 44th Annual Goldman Sachs Global Healthcare Conference in June 2023; the 2023 Wells Fargo Healthcare Conference, the Baird 2023 Global Healthcare Conference, and the Bank of America European Healthcare Conference in September 2023; the 6th Annual Evercore ISI HealthCONx Conference in November 2023; and the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in January 2024. We also held several separate calls with investors over the course of the year. During these individual conversations, investors reiterated their continued support for our executive compensation programs and the alignment of our executive compensation performance metrics with the drivers of our long-term growth and success.

The committee will continue to carefully consider feedback from shareholders and we will continue to proactively solicit feedback from investors. The committee also annually engages its independent compensation consultant to present an overview of executive compensation trends that may be important to investors. The committee’s consideration of feedback from shareholders, along with market information and analysis provided by the independent compensation consultant, have influenced a number of changes to our executive compensation program over the past several years. The committee will also continue to design our executive compensation program guided by our executive compensation philosophy and core principles as described below.

Executive Compensation Philosophy and Core Principles: Overview

We apply the following compensation philosophy in structuring the compensation of our executive officers, including the named executive officers. We believe that pay should be performance-based, vary with the attainment of specific objectives, and be closely aligned with the interests of our shareholders. To implement this philosophy, the committee, working with management and the committee’s compensation consultant, has established core principles to guide the design and operation of our compensation program. We aim to:

 

   

provide market-competitive compensation to attract and retain executive talent with the capability to lead within a global company,

 

   

emphasize variable pay to align executive compensation with the achievement of results that drive Revvity’s business strategy,

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 29


   

use equity-based incentive plans to tie a significant portion of compensation to Revvity’s long-term results and align the executive’s financial interests with those of our shareholders,

 

   

deliver compensation in the aggregate that is commensurate with Revvity’s results,

 

   

design executive compensation programs that are affordable for our Company, including with respect to impact on earnings,

 

   

design executive incentive plans that do not promote inappropriate or excessive risk-taking,

 

   

promote executive ownership of Revvity stock to further align executives’ financial interests with shareholders’ interests and to facilitate an ownership culture among executives,

 

   

be flexible to respond to changing needs of the business,

 

   

consider shareholder feedback, and

 

   

be transparent, so that both executives and other stakeholders understand the executive compensation program and the objectives it seeks to achieve.

Oversight of the Executive Compensation Program

The compensation and benefits committee directs the design and oversees the operation of our executive compensation program. A description of the committee’s structure, roles and responsibilities can be found above under the heading “Board of Directors Meetings and Committees.”

Role of the compensation and benefits committee. The agenda for meetings of the compensation and benefits committee is proposed by the Chair of the committee with assistance from our Chief Executive Officer and other members of management. Agenda topics are also proposed by committee members. At the invitation of the Chair of the committee, compensation and benefits committee meetings held in fiscal year 2023 were regularly attended by our Non-Executive Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, our Senior Vice President, Administration, General Counsel and Secretary, our Senior Vice President, Chief People and Culture Officer, our Vice President, Rewards & Well-Being, as well as the committee’s compensation consultant. For part of each meeting, the committee meets in executive session without the Chief Executive Officer and other members of management present. The committee’s compensation consultant attends executive sessions as requested by the committee. The committee’s Chair regularly reports the committee’s recommendations and decisions on executive compensation to our board. The compensation and benefits committee has the authority under its charter to directly retain, review fees for, and terminate advisors and consultants as it deems necessary to assist in the fulfillment of its responsibilities

Role of the independent compensation consultant. The independent compensation consultant provides data and analyses that serve as the basis for setting executive officer and director compensation levels and advises the committee on compensation decisions. The compensation consultant also advises the committee on the structure of executive officer and director compensation programs, including the design of incentive plans, the forms and mix of compensation, regulatory requirements and other topics relevant to executive and board compensation. During fiscal year 2023, the committee retained Pearl Meyer as its compensation consultant. The committee reviews the independence of its compensation consultant annually and found no conflict of interest with Pearl Meyer during its 2023 independence review. The committee’s compensation consultant does not provide services to our management. The committee has adopted protocols governing if and when its compensation consultant’s advice and recommendations to the committee can be shared with management, recognizing that, in advising the committee, it is necessary for the compensation consultant to interact with management to gather information. The committee also determines the appropriate forum for receiving recommendations from its compensation consultant. Where appropriate, the committee invites management to provide context for the recommendations. In other cases, the committee receives the compensation consultant’s recommendations in executive session where management is not present. The committee also engages directly with its compensation

 

30 Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement


consultant between meetings, as deemed necessary by the committee. This approach further protects the committee’s ability to receive objective advice from the compensation consultant and establishes a forum for independent decisions about executive pay.

Role of our Chief Executive Officer. The Chief Executive Officer regularly attends a portion of each committee meeting. He provides the committee with his assessment of the performance of the other named executive officers and his perspective on the factors described above used to develop his recommendations for compensation. The committee discusses each named executive officer and the Chief Executive Officer’s recommendations in detail, including how the recommendations compare against the external market data, and how the compensation levels of the executives compare to each other and to the Chief Executive Officer’s. The committee approves or modifies the Chief Executive Officer’s recommendations. The Chief Executive Officer does not make recommendations to the committee, or participate in committee decision-making, regarding his own compensation.

Our Chief Executive Officer and other executive officers may be authorized by the committee to fulfill certain administrative duties regarding compensation and benefit programs.

At the end of the fiscal year, our Chief Executive Officer’s annual performance is evaluated by our full board against both his financial and non-financial goals, which are approved by the committee early in the fiscal year. In addition, he provides an assessment of his performance relative to the goals. The committee discusses the Chief Executive Officer’s assessment as well as the committee members’ and all other board members’ assessments of his performance in executive session. The Chief Executive Officer is not present during the executive session discussion of his performance. Working with its compensation consultant, the committee determines and approves the Chief Executive Officer’s base salary, short-term incentive plan target and payment under the Global ICP (consistent with the terms of the plan described below), and long-term incentive program targets and awards (consistent with the terms of the plan described below).

Determining Executive Pay

Market Positioning. The committee’s policy is to manage total target compensation (and each element) to the median of the competitive market over time. Through the range of opportunities provided in our short- and long-term incentive programs (each discussed more fully below), actual payments may exceed the median when our performance exceeds Revvity’s targeted objectives and may fall below the median when performance is below target. An individual named executive officer’s total compensation (or an element) in any given year may be set above or below median, depending on experience, tenure, performance and internal equity.

External Market Practices. The committee annually reviews market compensation levels to determine whether total compensation for our executives remains in the targeted pay range and adjusts when appropriate. This assessment includes evaluation of base salary, and short- and long-term incentive opportunities against a peer group of industry companies with whom we compete for executive talent and in other business matters, supplemented with industry-specific aggregated survey data for companies of comparable size to Revvity, as measured by annual revenues. In general, the committee gives primary consideration to the peer group information because the peer companies resemble us more closely than the survey participants in terms of size and industry. The committee assesses the data by reviewing compensation arrangements for positions with comparable complexity and scope of responsibility to the positions at Revvity. In addition, the committee assesses rewards such as health benefits, retirement programs and perquisites relative to the market. The committee considers external market data as a general indication of competitive market pay levels and does not maintain a policy that executive officer pay must conform to a specific level relative to the market data.

Working with its compensation consultant, the committee reviews the peer group periodically to ensure that the peer companies selected remain appropriate for compensation and performance comparison purposes. Companies are selected based on industry and size, reflected by both revenue

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 31


and market capitalization. The committee’s goal is to assemble a group of companies that represents our competitors for executive talent. For 2023, this analysis was conducted after the completion of the previously announced divestiture of our Applied, Food and Enterprise Services businesses to New Mountain Capital, a growth-oriented investment firm, in March 2023.

The peer companies used by the committee for pay comparisons and for evaluating relative performance leading to approval of 2023 executive compensation are shown below and were the same as the peer companies used by the committee in its evaluation of 2022 executive compensation, except for the following changes to improve the comparability of the group to Revvity in terms of business focus and/or company size as measured by revenue and market cap:

Other Factors Influencing Compensation. When making compensation decisions, the committee takes many other factors into account, including the individual’s performance against individual goals (particularly over the past year), the individual’s expected future contributions to Revvity’s success, the financial and operational results of Revvity, the individual’s historical compensation and any retention concerns, and the Chief Executive Officer’s recommendations (in the case of named executive officers other than the Chief Executive Officer). In looking at historical compensation, the committee looks at the progression of salary increases over time, and also looks at the unvested and vested value of outstanding equity awards. The committee uses the same factors in evaluating the Chief Executive Officer’s performance and compensation that it uses for the other named executive officers.

Pay Mix. In accordance with our pay-for-performance compensation philosophy and because the named executive officers are in a position to directly influence the overall performance of the Company, they have a significant portion of their target compensation at risk through short-and long-term incentive programs. Not including the cost of benefits, in 2023, our Chief Executive Officer had 89% of his target compensation at risk, and on average our other named executive officers had 78% of their target compensation at risk (that is, subject to either performance requirements and/or service requirements). Additionally, to align executive officer compensation with long-term corporate success, a significant percentage of the named executive officers’ target compensation opportunity is delivered in the form of long-term incentive compensation through our LTIP. In 2023, 75% of our Chief Executive Officer’s total target compensation opportunity and 63% of the other named executive officers’ total target compensation opportunity on average were delivered through long-

term incentive compensation based on the fair market value on the date of grant. Half (50%) of the long-term incentive compensation granted to our named executive officers in fiscal 2023 will vest solely based upon the achievement of financial performance metrics. Also, to align the interests of executive officers with shareholders and to support an ownership culture, 100% of the named executive officers’, including the Chief Executive Officer’s, 2023 target long-term incentive compensation opportunity was provided using equity-based vehicles (stock options, restricted stock, and PRSUs).

2023 Target Total Compensation

Pay at Risk

 

LOGO

The committee has determined that our Chief Executive Officer should have a higher percentage of his total target compensation delivered in the form of performance-based incentives than the other named executive officers, due to his impact on, and higher accountability for, Company performance. Market and peer company information presented to the committee as part of the annual executive compensation program review supports that this is a competitive practice.

We expect to continue to deliver the majority of our target executive compensation through performance-based incentive programs, although the committee reserves the right to vary the pay mix by individual. The pay mix may also change annually, based on the committee’s evaluation of competitive external market practices and its determination of how to best align our executive incentive compensation programs with achievement of our business goals.

Pay for Results. We have a strong culture of paying for results. This is evidenced by the significant percentage of our executive compensation package tied to short- or long-term performance. In evaluating results against performance metrics and associated achievement, the committee looked primarily at overall corporate financial metrics as an indicator of business performance.

For 2023, the primary metrics for our Global ICP are non-COVID organic revenue growth, adjusted EPS and free cash flow conversion. The metrics for our 2023 LTIP program are non-COVID organic revenue growth and adjusted operating margin expansion. The metrics for our 2022 LTIP program are adjusted revenue and adjusted EPS. Our 2023 and 2022 LTIP programs also include a relative TSR modifier as a performance metric. The metrics for our 2021 LTIP program were adjusted revenue and adjusted EPS. The committee selected these metrics to capture the most important aspects of financial performance in the form of revenue growth, profitability and shareholder return.

We define non-COVID organic revenue as revenue adjusted for the impact of items related to foreign exchange, acquisitions, divestitures and certain other items, and excluding revenue from COVID-related products and services, and the related term non-COVID organic revenue growth to refer to the measure of comparing current period organic revenue excluding revenue from COVID-related products and services with the corresponding period of the prior year excluding revenue from COVID-related products and services. We define COVID revenue as revenue from the sales of COVID-related products and services, and we distinguish it from organic revenue to maintain focus on the growth of our core businesses.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 33


We define adjusted operating margin expansion as the change year over year in the operating margin percent of revenue.

We define adjusted revenue as GAAP revenue, including purchase accounting adjustments for revenue from contracts acquired in acquisitions that will not be fully recognized due to accounting rules.

We define adjusted EPS as earnings per share adjusted for the impact of items related to acquisitions, divestitures, business repositioning, mark-to-market on post-retirement benefits and certain other items, and we define free cash flow as operating cash flow from continuing operations less capital expenditures.

Non-COVID organic revenue growth was selected for the 2023 Global ICP and 2023 LTIP, because this metric reflects financial performance, which is a strong indicator of our long-term ability to drive shareholder value. Adjusted EPS and free cash flow were selected for the 2023 Global ICP and adjusted operating margin expansion was selected for the 2023 LTIP program because these metrics measure profitability, which provides us with the means to invest in both product and service innovation as well as business development opportunities that fuel revenue growth. We believe that the combination of strong top-and bottom-line financial performance creates shareholder value growth that is sustainable over the long term. Relative TSR was included as a modifier in our 2023 and 2022 LTIP programs in order to reward the creation of shareholder value as measured by stock price performance relative to an industry index. This was included beginning with our 2022 LTIP program as a result of investor feedback. In establishing performance objectives, the committee also reviews the performance of our industry peer group, referring to companies which are the best comparators for each of our businesses, and setting performance goals within the context of our strategic business plan. More information about the performance metrics and the goals for our short-and long-term incentive programs is provided below.

Components of the Executive Officer Compensation Program

Our executive compensation program is a robust, highly performance-driven program intended to generate both long-term sustainable shareholder value and near-term focus on financial performance, operational excellence, quality and innovation. We accomplish this through two primary incentive vehicles in addition to base pay. First, to address short-term performance, we have our Global ICP annual cash incentive plan, which we also refer to as our short-term incentive program. The Global ICP operates on an annual performance period comprising the full fiscal year. Global ICP payments are made based on achievement against pre-defined financial targets for fiscal year 2023, as set forth above.

Second, our executive officers participate in our LTIP Program. The LTIP is structured with overlapping three-year performance cycles and in 2023 included three diverse incentive vehicles: restricted stock, PRSUs and stock options. The three-year performance goals in our LTIP are aligned with our strategic planning process and are designed to focus our executives on making and executing decisions that drive growth and create lasting shareholder value.

In 2023, the committee reviewed all compensation, benefits and perquisites provided to the named executive officers. The specific rationale, design, reward process, and related information for each element are outlined below.

Base Salary

Base salaries for executive officers are determined based on the committee’s evaluation of the scope and impact of each executive’s position, as well as the skills, knowledge and experience they bring to their roles, relative to the competitive peer group referenced above. Generally, the committee refers to the median of the relevant competitive market for the position as part of the base salary evaluation, but any individual named executive officer may have a base salary above or below the median of the market. The committee evaluates external market data for each position and internal pay equity, as well.

Working with Pearl Meyer, the committee reviewed the total target compensation package for each officer in order to determine and approve the target compensation package for each officer for 2023. The Pearl Meyer analysis presented to the committee in late 2022 that the committee used to evaluate total target compensation for 2023 reported that base salaries for our named executive officers in 2022 were generally competitive with market levels in aggregate. On an individual level, the base salaries paid to each of our named executive officers in 2022 were positioned, on average, at the 40th percentile for their respective job matches at the peer companies as previously identified in the “Determining Executive Pay — External Market Practices” section above. Compensation for each executive officer was also reviewed in light of internal equity, the scope and impact of the position to our Company, and the performance of each individual in their respective roles.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 35


Based on the factors described above, including performance and the analysis of market information presented by Pearl Meyer, the committee approved base salary increases to our named executive officers and the effective dates for such increases were as set forth in the table below. Mr. Krakowiak did not receive a base salary increase at the time of the base salary increases approved for our other named executive officers in April 2023 due to the significant increase he received upon his promotion to Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer in September 2022. Working with Pearl Meyer, the committee reviewed Mr. Krakowiak’s compensation relative to the competitive peer group in connection with his promotion and the base salary increase approved in connection with his promotion reflected the committee’s desire to improve Mr. Krakowiak’s competitive position relative to the median base salary of chief financial officers for the peer group.

Short-Term Incentive Program

The Global ICP is our short-term incentive program and is a core component of our pay-for-performance executive compensation program. The program components include the award opportunity (expressed as a percentage of base salary), the performance measures (such as adjusted EPS) and their weightings, and the performance goals (such as a particular earnings target).

Award opportunities

The committee establishes the target award opportunity for each named executive officer based on competitive market analysis (target Global ICP opportunities are generally positioned within a reasonable range of the median of the competitive market), the desired emphasis on pay at risk (more pay at risk for more senior executives) and internal equity (comparably positioned executives should have comparable award opportunities). The committee approved a Global ICP target opportunity of 135% of base salary for Dr. Singh, increasing his target from 2022 to better align it with the 50th percentile for other Chief Executive Officer positions in the peer group. Positioning target Global ICP opportunities generally at the market median underscores the committee’s compensation strategy that compensation levels should approximate market median levels when performance meets target expectations, and that pay should exceed median levels only when performance exceeds Revvity’s targeted objectives. The 2023 target Global ICP award opportunity for each named executive officer was as follows:

Performance measures, weightings and goals

The Global ICP performance period for our named executive officers comprises the full fiscal year. Awards are based on attainment of annual corporate financial performance and achievement of individual strategic performance objectives calculated as follows:

 

LOGO

At the committee meeting held in January 2023, the committee established the Global ICP financial and strategic performance goals for fiscal 2023. The performance goals were based on the fiscal 2023 operating plan, budget and strategic plan reviewed by our board, which included the anticipated divestiture of our Applied, Food and Enterprise Services businesses in March 2023 and continued decline in COVID sales.

The performance metrics and weightings for the fiscal 2023 Global ICP were as follows:

 

 Global ICP Metric     Weighting   

 Non-COVID Organic Revenue Growth

  

 

40

 Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS)

  

 

40

 Free Cash Flow Conversion

  

 

20

The committee assigned a weighting of 40% to non-COVID organic revenue growth in reflection of our focus on growing our core businesses. The inclusion of adjusted EPS was designed to focus our leadership team on both growing revenue and operating a profitable business, which are critical to creating shareholder value. Free cash flow conversion was included as a measure as strong cash generation is a leading indicator of efficient operating performance.

All of our named executive officers were assigned the same set of performance metrics reflecting their shared accountability for corporate results.

Performance against goals may be adjusted for certain events including acquisitions, divestitures, currency exchange, and other non-recurring events during the performance period as approved by the committee. The definition of allowable adjustments is approved by the committee at the time the goals are set.

In an effort to ensure the integrity of these goals and minimize the risk of unanticipated outcomes, each financial metric has a target goal with a performance range built around it, with a commensurate increase or decrease in the associated award opportunity. The range of performance goals and associated award opportunities under the program is expressed in the form of a “minimum”, “target” and “maximum”. If results fall below the minimum goal, the short-term incentive amount associated with that goal is not paid. If results exceed pre-established maximum goals, the cash award payout associated with financial performance is capped at the maximum award opportunity. The committee believes that a maximum cap reduces the likelihood of windfalls and makes the maximum cost of the plan predictable. For 2023, achievement of the “minimum” level of performance for each financial metric would result in achievement of 50% of the target award associated with that financial metric, and achievement of the “maximum” level of performance for

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 37


each financial metric would result in achievement of 200% of the target award associated with that financial metric. Actual awards may exceed 200% based on the committee’s evaluation of individual performance.

The range of performance goals for each financial metric is set primarily based on our annual operating plan and our business expectations for the year. External performance expectations are also considered. The goals for “minimum” level payments are set to reasonable performance levels and result in only partial bonus payment. “Target” awards reflect our business plan goals for the period. “Maximum” awards are paid based on aggressive goals which can be attained only when business results are exceptional.

At the January 2023 meeting, the committee also reviewed our 2023 strategic goals, which included goals related to financial targets, business development, business transformation, integration priorities, operational imperatives, and people and culture, the achievement of which would also be considered in the determination of fiscal 2023 Global ICP bonuses paid to executive officers.

2023 Short-term incentive payments

Performance against Global ICP goals. The 2023 Global ICP target goals, actual results and associated Global ICP achievement levels are shown below. Results were adjusted by allowable items as approved by the committee, including currency fluctuation from the time the goals were established and divestitures. Non-COVID organic revenue growth and adjusted EPS results did not meet the goals for minimum level payments and free cash flow results were between the minimum and target goals, resulting in overall achievement against the Global ICP goals of 17%.

Each of our named executive officers was also assigned four or more strategic goals for 2023, which were reviewed and approved by the committee in January 2023. The strategic goals were objective and measurable, designed to create individual accountability for the achievement of strategic and operational business results during fiscal 2023, and focused on areas related to financial targets, business development, business transformation, integration priorities, operational imperatives, and people and culture. Specific ESG objectives were contained within these goals for each named executive officer aligned to our short- and long-term areas of focus concerning reduction of emissions and waste, diversity and employee satisfaction. Following the end of fiscal 2023, the committee evaluated the performance of each named executive officer against the assigned 2023 strategic goals. The performance against individual strategic goals was applied in the committee’s determination of each named executive officer’s individual performance affecting their 2023 Global ICP bonus payment. Both upward and downward discretion may be applied to an individual’s calculated bonus for any given performance period.

During 2023, we advanced our purpose to expand the boundaries of human potential through science and positioned ourselves for future growth by transforming our organization.

discretion score. Collectively and individually, our leadership team delivered differentiated performance despite market headwinds, demonstrating the strength of our product portfolio, continued innovation, and investments in our people. For fiscal year 2023, we achieved the completion of the divestiture of our Applied, Food and Enterprise Services to New Mountain Capital as well as the rebranding of the Company. Additionally, while overall Non-Covid Organic Revenue Growth and Adjusted EPS results were below the thresholds for achievement under the 2023 GICP, the Company delivered results stronger than many in its peer set. Our 2023 performance was well-balanced geographically as each major region performed well given industry macroeconomic headwinds. Additionally, the Company executed well on its new product innovation efforts. In our life sciences business, we signed our first license with a major pharmaceutical customer for the rights to use our novel Pin-Point base editing technology in their drug discovery and development work. We also introduced a refreshed portfolio of preclinical invivo imaging instruments, consisting of the launch of the QuantumTM GX3 microCT imaging solution and the IVIS® Spectrum 2 next generation imaging system. In our reproductive health business, we launched our EONIS®Q system, a first-of-its-kind newborn screening workflow, that streamlines molecular testing for both spinal muscular atrophy and severe combined immunodeficiency in newborns. It is a new and complete common variable immunodeficiency solution, that consists of new polymerase chain reaction equipment with dedicated software and a specialized diagnostics kit. In our immunodiagnostics business we introduced the UNIQO160 automated indirect immunofluorescence test system for autoimmune disease diagnostics that increases automation, reducing the amount of hands-on time required for users. We launched our new e-commerce platform, which went live in the United States in mid-December, approximately five to six months earlier than we anticipated. We also implemented and launched a new sustainability data analysis system to allow for more automated collection and analysis of utility data across many of our facilities, providing for more robust sustainability reporting in the future. We furthered our commitment to diversity as evidenced by the advancement of the vibrant belonging collective formed by our four Employee Resources groups and our four Networking groups, now comprising nearly 700 employees in the aggregate who enjoy this safe and engaging platform for dialogue and empowerment. During fiscal year 2023, our groups conducted a series of workshops enhancing the visibility of our Hispanic communities in the workplace, recognizing the dedication of our veteran employees and empowering women to network, develop and share their stories. Our commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive work environment is further validated by our 2023 People Experience Survey in which 85% of our employees felt safe to share their opinions and use their voices, providing over 31,000 comments. We continued to receive a high score in the area of Diversity and Inclusion. Among other comments, employees shared that they are proud of the emphasis we place on diversity and inclusion and on making our Company a place where everyone is valued and respected. Overall, we believe that our strategic priorities, coupled with our expanded range of product offerings, leading market positions, global scale, financial strength, and strong culture, provide us with a foundation for continued revenue growth, strong margins and cash flows, and long-term earnings per share growth.

Based on its evaluation of achievement against the Global ICP financial and individual strategic goals, the committee approved 2023 Global ICP bonus payments to our named executive officers as follows:

The short-term incentive payments to our named executive officers for 2023 are shown in the Summary Compensation Table that follows this report.

Long-Term Incentive Program (LTIP)

The committee uses long-term incentive awards to focus our executive officers on long-term performance and to align the executive officers’ financial interests with those of our shareholders. The committee grants LTIP awards to our executive officers annually, with each LTIP cycle spanning a three-year period. As a result, we have three active LTIP cycles during each fiscal year.

LTIP targets: The committee utilized peer and survey data presented by Pearl Meyer in October 2022 as a reference point for setting target award opportunities for our named executive officers in 2023. The committee approved an LTIP target opportunity of 700% of base salary for Dr. Singh, maintaining his target from 2022 as it was aligned to 50th percentile for other Chief Executive Officer positions in the peer group. As of the end of fiscal 2022, LTIP opportunities for the non-CEO named executive officers ranged from 175% to 300% of base salary, which fell from less than the 25th to approximately the 50th percentile of LTIP target opportunities for comparable positions in the peer group. In all cases, 2023 target opportunity values were set at levels the committee believed would compensate the executives for future achievement of our long-term financial goals and stock price appreciation in a manner commensurate with the executives’ duties and contributions.

Based on its review of the Pearl Meyer analysis, internal equity, and the scope and impact of their roles, the committee approved 2023 LTIP target opportunities as a multiple of base salary for our named executive officers as follows:

For the named executive officers participating in LTIP in 2023, approximately one-quarter of the long-term incentive opportunity was provided in the form of non-qualified stock options, approximately one-quarter in restricted stock, and approximately half in PRSUs. The committee believes this approach to long-term incentive compensation builds upon its pay-for-performance philosophy and provides a balanced focus on stock price appreciation and the achievement of financial metrics that are drivers of long-term shareholder value creation.

In structuring the LTIP program, the committee believes it is important to retain stock options as a significant element of the program to continue to capture the motivational benefits of rewarding executives for appreciation in our stock price over the course of multiple years. The restricted share element of LTIP also provides motivation and reward for stock price appreciation and supports

retention through a three-year cliff vesting schedule. The PRSU portion of LTIP further aligns the long-term incentive program with important drivers of long-term shareholder value, as vesting is based on achievement of key financial performance goals during the three-year period.

LTIP Performance Metrics: The committee has approved revenue and profitability performance metrics for the PRSU component of our LTIP that reflect our continued focus on long-term profitable growth. We believe sustained performance against revenue and profitability goals will create value for our shareholders over the long term. The revenue and profitability metrics approved for each LTIP are described in more detail, below. At the end of the three-year performance period, the Company must achieve aggressive financial goals previously approved by the committee, in order for PRSUs to vest. The committee assigns minimum, target and maximum goals for each performance factor. If the minimum goal is not met, no PRSU share delivery will be made for that performance factor. Performance goals for the PRSU component of our LTIP are set based on our extended business projections and long-term strategic plans. Evaluation of achievement against goals, and any resulting PRSUs granted, is conducted at the end of the three-year performance period. Goal measurement may be adjusted for certain events including acquisitions, divestitures, currency fluctuations, and other non-recurring events as approved by the committee.

Our 2021 LTIP program did not have a relative TSR performance modifier, but based on investor feedback in 2021, the committee included a relative TSR performance modifier in the 2022 and 2023 LTIP program design. At the time of establishing our 2022 and 2023 LTIP, the committee approved custom peer groups of 34 and 33 companies, respectively, against which our TSR would be evaluated at the end of the three-year LTIP performance period. These peer groups included more companies than the peer groups used for the evaluation of our overall executive compensation program because they are used to measure performance over a three-year period, and companies will be removed from the custom peer groups if they are acquired during the applicable three-year performance period. Our 2022 and 2023 LTIP relative TSR peer groups included all of our executive compensation peer group companies at the time, plus additional companies found within the Life Sciences Tools & Services and Healthcare Equipment & Supplies sectors. Our 2023 relative TSR peer group is provided in the table below.

2021 LTIP Performance: In January 2021, the committee approved the 2021 LTIP. The committee approved performance targets for the PRSUs for the entire three-year performance period at grant. The PRSUs were to vest based on performance against three-year average total adjusted

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 41


revenue (60% weighting) and earnings per share (40% weighting) goals. The committee determined these metrics and their associated weighting provided an appropriate balance between long-term top-line revenue growth and profitability. We do not disclose goals and targets for the LTIP program in the year of grant given that we do not provide long-term forecasts. As such, we disclose the LTIP goals and targets at the end of the applicable performance period.

Performance against the financial goals set for the PRSUs granted under the 2021 LTIP was evaluated at the end of fiscal year 2023. Three-year average adjusted revenue of $2.92 billion exceeded the target goal of $2.6 billion and resulted in performance achievement of 190%. 2023 adjusted earnings per share of $4.96 was above the minimum goal of $4.85 and below the target goal of $5.65, resulting in performance achievement of 57%. The achievement percentages were weighted in accordance with the original metric weightings approved by the committee and resulted in achievement of 137% against the financial goals. Three-year average adjusted revenue and 2023 earnings per share were calculated on a constant currency basis and adjusted for divestitures as approved by the committee.

The committee determined that the PRSU vesting was aligned with financial performance during the three-year 2021 LTIP performance period and approved vesting of the 2021 LTIP PRSUs at the 137% performance level that was achieved. The vested PRSUs were converted to shares and transferred to the named executive officers in early 2024.

Our 2022-2024 LTIP Structure

The open 2022 and 2023 LTIP programs have the same plan components, weightings among stock options, restricted shares and PRSUs and vesting provisions as those shown above for our 2021 LTIP, with the exception of the performance measures applicable to the PRSUs. For our 2024 LTIP, restricted stock was replaced with restricted stock units that vest one-third annually on the anniversary of the grant date. Also for the 2024 LTIP, before the grant date, each executive officer, including our named executive officers, can choose to receive either (i) the standard allocation of 2024 LTIP grant value of

 

42 Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement


approximately one-quarter of the long-term incentive opportunity in the form of non-qualified stock options, approximately one-quarter in restricted stock units, and approximately half in PRSUs or (ii), alternatively, to receive an allocation of 2024 LTIP grant value of approximately half of the long-term incentive opportunity in the form of non-qualified stock options, no restricted stock units, and approximately half in PRSUs. These changes for the 2024 LTIP program reflect the committee’s belief that introducing the element of choice maximizes the perceived value of our LTIP program.

Achievement against PRSU targets is based on performance measures established for each LTIP grant against a set of three-year financial goals. The financial measures and weightings for each open LTIP grant in 2024 are as follows:

LTIP Goals (2022-2024)

Based on investor feedback, the committee continued the approved inclusion of a relative TSR performance metric in the 2024 LTIP design.

Specific goals and targets for each LTIP year will be disclosed at the end of the performance period as we do not provide long-term forecasts.

Benefits

In addition to base salary, and short- and long-term incentive awards, our executive officers also participate in certain employee benefit programs. These benefit programs are designed to be competitive with market practices and to attract and retain the executive talent we need.

Retirement and Deferred Compensation Programs

Qualified Officer Retirement Benefit

In January 2021, the committee approved a qualified officer retirement benefit whereby equity awards subject to three-year cliff vesting, which included restricted stock and PRSUs, would accelerate on a proportional basis upon a qualified retirement from the Company. This benefit took effect with grants made under the 2021 LTIP program and applies to grants made under the 2022 and 2023 LTIP programs. In October 2023, following a review of peer and market practices, the committee approved modifications to this benefit whereby newly issued equity awards subject to three-year cliff vesting, which include the PRSUs granted as part of the 2024 LTIP program, would vest on a continued and proportional basis following a qualified retirement from the Company. Equity awards subject to annual three-year vesting, which include non-qualified stock options and restricted stock units granted as part of the 2024 LTIP program, would vest on a non-accelerated full basis following a qualified retirement from the Company.

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 43


Qualified 401(k) Plan and 401(k) Excess Benefit

All of our U.S. employees, including the named executive officers, are eligible to participate in our tax-qualified Section 401(k) plan which includes Company matching contributions.

During 2023, Mr. Goldberg was eligible to receive a 401(k) Excess benefit. It is designed to provide only the benefit that the executive would have accrued under our tax-qualified plan if the IRS Code limits had not applied. It does not further enhance those benefits. In December 2010, the committee amended our 401(k) Excess benefit to cease elective deferrals for plan years beginning January 1, 2011. As such, none of our other named executive officers were eligible to receive a 401(k) Excess benefit in 2023 as they joined Revvity after elective deferrals ceased. The matching contributions for our 401(k) plan and contributions made under our 401(k) Excess benefit are included in the “All Other Compensation” column of the Summary Compensation Table and, in the case of the 401(k) Excess benefit, the Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan Table (which also includes each eligible named executive officer’s account balance as of the end of fiscal year 2023).

Deferred Compensation Plan

In December 2010, due to low participation and high administrative costs, the committee amended our non-qualified deferred compensation plan to eliminate deferral elections from participants for plan years beginning January 1, 2011 or later. Prior to the amendment, a select group of highly compensated management employees was eligible to participate in the plan, including our named executive officers while employed by us and our directors who were serving on our board prior to the amendment. The 2008 Deferred Compensation Plan allowed participants to defer certain types of compensation and designate notional investments in a selection of mutual funds or Revvity stock. Company contributions of 401(k) Excess benefits will continue to be made to this plan for eligible participants. The plan does not provide for above-market returns. Although the deferred compensation plan was amended in 2022 to permit participation by certain legacy employees of BioLegend, the deferred compensation plan remains closed for legacy employees of the Company, including all named executive officers and directors except those named executive officers and directors providing service to the Company prior to the December 2010 amendment. For more information about the Deferred Compensation Plan, please refer to “Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan” following the 2023 Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan Table, below.

Officer Programs

We provide a limited number of personal benefit programs to eligible officers which we believe are competitive with overall market practices and which the committee has determined are appropriate to offer to attract and retain key executives. The committee periodically reviews external market data to determine the types and value levels of programs we should provide. The committee also determines eligibility for officer programs.

All of our named executive officers are eligible for the Officer Matching Gift Program and the Executive Physical programs described below. Mr. Goldberg is eligible for the Executive Life and AD&D Insurance program, also described below.

 

   

Officer Matching Gift Program: The Revvity Foundation will make matching gifts to qualified institutions of the officer’s choice up to an aggregate annual maximum of $50,000 per year for the Chief Executive Officer and $25,000 per year for other eligible officers. The program is provided in order to encourage our executives to support community and other not-for-profit organizations.

 

   

Executive Physical: Eligible officers may receive a full annual executive physical paid by Revvity. The physical is provided to encourage proactive management of health and well-being.

 

44 Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement


   

Executive Life and AD&D Insurance: Eligible officers are covered by an executive life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance plan that pays a death benefit equal to four times the executive’s base salary. Officers eligible for executive life and AD&D coverage pay the associated tax on insurance premiums. The committee ceased eligibility for executive life and AD&D insurance to newly hired and promoted officers in fiscal 2010.

Employment Agreements and Severance/Change in Control Arrangements

All of our named executive officers have employment agreements. The committee believes these agreements benefit Revvity by clarifying the terms of employment and ensuring that we are protected by non-compete, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure provisions. We also believe these agreements are necessary for us to attract and retain senior talent in a competitive market. Furthermore, the committee believes that change in control benefits, if structured appropriately, serve to minimize the distraction caused by a potential transaction and reduce the risk that key talent will leave the organization before a transaction closes. These departures could reduce the value of the organization to a buyer or to the shareholders if a transaction fails to close.

The arrangements provide severance benefits to our named executive officers in the event of an involuntary termination not for “cause”, or voluntary termination following a change in control where the executive has “good reason”, as these terms are defined in the agreements. The benefits under the agreements are generally larger if the termination is associated with a change in control.

Our employment agreements with our named executive officers also provide for acceleration of vesting in certain situations, such as upon, or following, a change in control of Revvity.

For Mr. Goldberg, who was hired prior to certain changes approved by the committee that are described below, a tax gross-up is provided, if necessary, to make him whole for certain excise taxes imposed under the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, effective upon a change in control, 100% of Mr. Goldberg’s stock options, restricted shares and PRSUs would vest.

Following an evaluation of market practices, the committee determined on February 25, 2010 that future employment agreements issued to newly promoted or newly hired officers will provide 100% equity vesting upon termination following a change in control only if the officer’s employment is terminated within a specified period of time following the change in control. On July 30, 2010, the committee also determined that future employment agreements entered into with newly promoted or newly hired officers will not include a tax gross-up for excise taxes imposed under the Internal Revenue Code. Consistent with these decisions, the employment agreements issued to Dr. Singh, Messrs. Krakowiak and Vohra and Ms. Victor do not include a tax gross-up for excise taxes imposed under the Internal Revenue Code, and their equity will vest following a change in control only for a qualifying termination of employment within a specified period of time following the change in control.

The committee periodically reviews the benefits provided under the agreements to ensure they serve Revvity’s interests in retaining key executives, are consistent with market practice, and are reasonable. Details of each named executive officer’s agreement, and the estimated payments that each named executive officer would receive under different termination circumstances, are set forth below in “Potential Payments upon Termination or Change in Control”.

Additional Compensation Policies

Stock Ownership Guidelines

The committee has determined that in order to further align management and shareholder interests, executive stock ownership should be significant relative to each executive officer’s base salary. Executives are expected to attain these ownership levels within five years after their election or appointment. Ownership level determination includes stock acquired through the open market, through the exercise of stock options or vesting of RSUs after which the shares are held, shares

 

Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement 45


granted under restricted stock grants and shares held by immediate family members, including through family trusts. Shares held in our 401(k) and our deferred compensation plans are also counted. The intrinsic value of vested, in-the-money outstanding stock options is excluded from ownership level determinations.

Our stock ownership guidelines are expressed as the fair market value of the shares held as a multiple of annual base salary. The stock ownership guidelines for our executive officers (including our named executive officers) are as follows:

 

      Officer Position

  

   Stock Ownership Guidelines    

Chief Executive Officer

   5 times annual base salary

Executive and Senior Vice President

   2 times annual base salary

Vice President

   1 times annual base salary

As of February 16, 2024, all of our named executive officers were in compliance with the stock ownership guidelines.

Securities Trading Policy

All trading in Revvity securities by our named executive officers must be conducted under pre-established 10b5-1 trading plans. These 10b5-1 plans are subject to Company approval, can be entered into or amended only during open trading windows, impose a waiting period between adoption of a plan and initiation of trades, and have a maximum duration of one year. All trading in our securities by our directors requires pre-clearance from the office of our general counsel. Our Securities Trading Policy prohibits all employees, including our named executive officers, from engaging in “short” sales of our stock (unless the sale is part of a permitted “cashless” exercise of stock options) and from trading in any form of derivative security or instrument linked to our stock. The policy also prohibits pledging of Revvity stock by our officers.

Clawback Policies

Our executive officer Global ICP includes a recoupment provision applicable to all plan awards paid to executive officers for performance periods beginning on or after December 30, 2013. In the event we are required to prepare an accounting restatement due to material noncompliance with any financial reporting requirement under United States federal securities laws, the committee will have the right to recover all or a portion of the excess paid to the executive officer over the award payment that would have been paid to the executive officer under the accounting restatement. The recoupment provision applies to awards paid to current and former executive officers within the three-year period preceding the date on which we file an accounting restatement with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The committee, in its sole discretion, will make the determination whether to recover all or a portion of any excess award payment. Effective October 2, 2023, the committee approved a new clawback policy and adopted revisions to the Global ICP plan recoupment provision in accordance with new rules promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the New York Stock Exchange.

Officers, including our named executive officers, who are granted stock options under the LTIP, sign a Prohibited Activity Agreement. This agreement requires the officer to repay gains on stock options exercised within the last year of employment if the officer solicits, recruits or induces an employee or consultant of Revvity to end their employment with us, or engages directly or indirectly with a competing business (as defined in the agreement) within two years after the officer’s termination date.

Equity Award Granting Practices

The following practices apply to all of our equity awards, including grants made under our LTIP. Our 2009 Incentive Plan was approved by shareholders at our 2009 annual meeting of shareholders

 

46 Revvity • 2024 Proxy Statement


and reapproved by shareholders at our 2014 annual meeting of shareholders. Our 2019 Incentive Plan was approved by shareholders at our 2019 annual meeting of shareholders. Our 2009 Incentive Plan was the sole plan under which we granted equity awards from the date of its approval by shareholders until the approval of our 2019 Incentive Plan. The 2019 Incentive Plan has been the sole plan under which we grant equity awards since the date of its approval by shareholders.

These incentive plans provide for grants of stock options, restricted stock, stock appreciation rights, other stock unit awards, performance units, and cash performance awards. The plans give the committee the latitude to design cash and stock-based incentive programs that promote high performance and the achievement of corporate goals. Employees, including our named executive officers and non-employee directors, are eligible to receive awards under these plans.

The committee evaluates annual equity grants to officers, including the named executive officers, at the first committee meeting of each year. The approved grants become effective and the option exercise price is set on the first day of the open trading window following the release of full-year earnings, which is the date of grant. Therefore, the annual grant takes place after the release of material information regarding our annual financial performance.

Equity grants to new hires are generally granted on the 15th day of the month following the employee’s date of hire. We primarily grant RSUs to employees below the officer level who receive equity awards. Stock options are awarded to a limited number of employees below the officer level.

The stock option exercise price is set at the average of the high and low prices on the date of grant. We believe this practice results in a grant price which more fairly represents the stock price over the course of the date of grant than the closing price on the date of grant, which could be arbitrarily high or low.

Our board administers all equity grants within the authority established within Revvity’s shareholder-approved incentive plans and, as permitted under the plans, delegates authority to administer the plans to the committee. The committee establishes the terms and conditions of each award, including vesting and performance criteria, and the time period applicable to the award. The committee may delegate approval to grant equity awards to non-officers to our stock award grant committee of which Dr. Singh is the sole member. The stock award grant committee does not have the authority to issue equity grants to officers.

At the end of fiscal year 2023, we had 5.2 million shares reserved for future equity grants. We had 1.5 million outstanding options and unvested shares, which represent 1.2% of our common shares outstanding. Our total dilution including shares reserved for future grants and outstanding options and unvested shares was 5.5%. In 2023, we granted 0.3 million shares (including shares granted under options and stock grants) or 0.25% of our common shares outstanding. The committee annually reviews the potential dilutive effect of equity award programs from both a share and economic perspective as compared to industry peers. For fiscal year 2022, share dilution for our peer companies was 1.5% at the 25th percentile, 1.8% at median, and 2.9% at the 75th percentile (shares outstanding plus shares available for future grant).

Compensation Committee Report

The compensation and benefits committee has reviewed and discussed the Compensation Discussion and Analysis with management and, based on such review and discussions, we recommended to the board of directors that the Compensation Discussion and Analysis be included in this proxy statement.

NOTES

 

(1)

The awards shown in this table were granted under our 2019 Incentive Plan unless otherwise indicated below. The types of awards are as follows:

PRSU = Performance restricted stock units with performance-based vesting

RSU = Restricted stock units with time-based vesting

RS-T = Restricted stock with time-based vesting

OPT = Stock options with time-based vesting

GICP = Global ICP (short-term incentive bonus)

 

(2)

On January 26, 2023, the compensation and benefits committee reviewed stock option, restricted stock and PRSU grants for Dr. Singh, Messrs. Krakowiak, Goldberg, and Vohra and Ms. Victor, and approved them with an effective grant date of the third business day following the release of our 2022 full-year earnings, which was February 16, 2023. Therefore, the date of grant was after the release of material information regarding our 2022 financial performance.

 

(3)

Eligible named executive officers received a grant of PRSUs in 2023 under our LTIP. These awards have a three-year performance period. The number of PRSUs to be granted to an LTIP participant is determined by dividing the award value associated with the PRSUs by the closing stock price on the date of grant. Please refer to the “Compensation Discussion and Analysis” for a description of the PRSU program, eligibility and payment criteria. The amounts shown under “Threshold” represent estimated payment of 50% of the PRSUs granted, with downward relative TSR performance modification of 20%, our estimate of the minimum amount payable if the threshold performance level is met for all performance measures. The amounts shown under “Target” represent estimated payment of 100% of the PRSUs granted. The amounts shown under “Maximum” represent estimated payment of 200% of the PRSUs granted, with upward relative TSR performance modification of 20%, our estimate of the maximum amount payable. For all listed officers, the stock price used for calculation of the grant date fair value of the PRSUs was $134.88, which was the closing stock price on the date the awards were granted.

(4)

Eligible named executive officers received a grant of restricted shares under our LTIP which vests 100% three years following the date of grant. The number of shares of restricted stock to be granted to an LTIP participant is determined by dividing the award value associated with restricted stock by the closing stock price on the date of grant. A description of the restricted stock portion of our LTIP is provided in the “Compensation Discussion and Analysis.”

 

(5)

Eligible named executive officers received a grant of stock options under our LTIP in 2023. Options were issued with an exercise price equal to the fair market value on the date of grant. The stock option exercise price is set at the average of the high and low price on the date of grant. The number of option shares to be granted to an LTIP participant is determined by dividing the award value associated with stock options by the Black-Scholes value of the option. The options granted under our 2023 LTIP vest in three equal annual installments and may be exercised for seven years from the date of grant. Please refer to the “Compensation Discussion and Analysis” section of this proxy statement for a description of 2023 stock option grants and our equity practices.

 

(6)

Dr. Singh, Messrs. Krakowiak, Goldberg, and Vohra and Ms. Victor participated in our Global ICP bonus program in 2023. On January 26, 2023, the compensation and benefits committee approved Global ICP financial goals for our 2023 fiscal year. The amounts shown under “Threshold” represent payment of 50% of the target ICP for the fiscal year performance period, our estimate of the minimum amount payable, assuming threshold level performance is achieved for all performance measures. The amounts shown under “Target” represent estimated payment of 100% of the target bonus for the performance period. The amounts shown under “Maximum” represent estimated payment of 200% of the target bonus for the performance period, our estimate of the maximum amount payable. The actual Global ICP payments for the 2023 performance period have been made. The total 2023 ICP payment to each named executive officer and a description of the Global ICP is provided in the “Compensation Discussion and Analysis” section of this proxy statement and is reflected in the Summary Compensation Table.

 

(7)

On January 26, 2023, the compensation and benefits committee approved additional equity grants for Mr. Krakowiak composed of stock options and restricted stock units with a grant date of February 16, 2023. The options were issued with an exercise price equal to the fair market value on the date of grant. The stock option exercise price was set at the average of the high and low price on the date of grant. The options vest in three equal annual installments and may be exercised for seven years from the date of grant. The restricted stock units vest on the third anniversary of the date of grant. The stock price used for calculation of the grant date fair value of the restricted stock units was $134.05, which is the Black-Scholes value based on the closing stock price on the date the restricted stock units were granted.
