Deadlines and Procedures
Under SEC Rule 14a-8, if a shareholder would like us to include a proposal in our proxy statement and form of proxy for the 2010 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, our Corporate Secretary must receive the proposal at our corporate headquarters at 112 West 34th Street, New York, New York 10120 by December 10, 2009 in order to be considered for inclusion in the 2010 proxy statement.
For any shareholder proposal that is not submitted under SEC Rule 14a-8, including nominations for directors, our By-laws describe the procedures that must be followed. Under these procedures, we must receive notice of a shareholders intention to introduce a nomination or proposed item of business for an annual meeting not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days before the first anniversary of the prior years annual meeting. For 2010, we must receive this notice no earlier than January 20, 2010 and no later than February 19, 2010, assuming that our 2010 annual meeting is held on schedule. However, if we hold the annual meeting on a date that is not within 30 days before or after the first anniversary of the prior years annual meeting, then we must receive the notice no later than ten days after the earlier of the date we first provide notice of the meeting to shareholders or announce it publicly.
Proposals for nomination for directors and other items of business should be addressed to the Corporate Secretary, 112 West 34th Street, New York, New York 10120 and must contain the information specified in the Companys By-Laws, which are available on the corporate governance section of our corporate website at http://www.footlocker-inc.com/IR_index.htm or may be obtained from the Corporate Secretary.
