PROXY STATEMENT
 
 
 
This Proxy Statement is being furnished to you in connection with the solicitation by the board of directors of Genomic Health, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“we,” “us,” “our,” “Genomic Health” or the “Company”), of proxies in the accompanying form to be used at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders of the Company to be held at Seaport Center, 459 Seaport Court, Redwood City, California 94063 on Monday, June 8, 2009, at 10:00 a.m., Pacific Time, and any postponement or adjournment thereof (the “Annual Meeting”).
 
This Proxy Statement and the accompanying form of proxy are being mailed to stockholders on or about April 30, 2009.
 
Questions and Answers About
the Proxy Materials and the Annual Meeting
 
 
Three proposals will be voted on at the Annual Meeting:
 
  •  The election of directors;
 
  •  The approval of the Amended and Restated 2005 Stock Incentive Plan; and
 
  •  The ratification of the appointment of the independent registered public accounting firm for 2009.
 
 
Our board recommends that you vote:
 
  •  “FOR” election of each of the nominated directors;
 
  •  “FOR” approval of the Amended and Restated 2005 Stock Incentive Plan; and
 
  •  “FOR” ratification of the appointment of the independent registered public accounting firm for 2009.
 
 
We do not expect any other items of business because the deadline for stockholder proposals and nominations has already passed. Nonetheless, in case there is an unforeseen need, the accompanying proxy gives discretionary authority to the persons named on the proxy with respect to any other matters that might be brought before the meeting. Those persons intend to vote that proxy in accordance with their best judgment.
 
 
Stockholders of record at the close of business on April 17, 2009 (the “Record Date”) may vote at the Annual Meeting. Each stockholder is entitled to one vote for each share of the Company’s common stock held as of the Record Date.


Table of Contents

 
Stockholder of Record.  If your shares are registered directly in your name with Genomic Health’s transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, Inc., you are considered, with respect to those shares, the stockholder of record. The Proxy Statement, Annual Report and proxy card have been sent directly to you by Genomic Health.
 
Beneficial Owner.  If your shares are held in a brokerage account or by a bank or other nominee, you are considered the beneficial owner of shares held in street name. The Proxy Statement and Annual Report have been forwarded to you by your broker, bank or nominee who is considered, with respect to those shares, the stockholder of record. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker, bank or nominee how to vote your shares by using the voting instruction form included in the mailing.
 
 
 
If you are a stockholder of record, you may vote in person at the Annual Meeting, vote by proxy using the enclosed proxy card, vote by proxy over the telephone, or vote by proxy on the Internet. Whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we urge you to vote by proxy to ensure your vote is counted. You may still attend the Annual Meeting and vote in person even if you have already voted by proxy.
 
  •  To vote in person, come to the Annual Meeting and we will give you a ballot when you arrive.
 
  •  To vote using the proxy card, complete, sign and date the enclosed proxy card and return it promptly in the postage-prepaid envelope provided. If you return your signed proxy card to us before the Annual Meeting, we will vote your shares as you direct.
 
  •  To vote over the telephone, follow the telephone voting instructions on the enclosed proxy card. You will be asked to provide the company number and control number from the proxy card. Your vote must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on June 7, 2009 to be counted.
 
  •  To vote on the Internet, follow the Internet voting instructions on the enclosed proxy card. You will be asked to provide the company number and control number from the proxy card. Your vote must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on June 7, 2009 to be counted.
 
 
If you are a beneficial owner of shares registered in the name of your broker, bank, or other agent, you should have received a proxy card and voting instructions with these proxy materials from that organization rather than from the Company. Complete and mail the proxy card to ensure that your vote is counted. Alternatively, you may vote by telephone or over the Internet as instructed by your broker or bank. To vote in person at the Annual Meeting, you must obtain a valid proxy from your broker, bank, or other agent. Follow the instructions from your broker, bank or other agent included with these proxy materials, or contact your broker, bank or other agent to request a proxy form.
 
 
We provide Internet proxy voting to allow you to vote your shares online. However, please be aware that you must bear any costs associated with your Internet access, such as usage charges from Internet access providers and telephone companies.
 
 
You may change your vote or revoke your proxy at any time prior to the vote at the Annual Meeting. If you submitted your proxy by mail, you must file with the Secretary of the Company a written notice of revocation or deliver, prior to the vote at the Annual Meeting, a valid, later-dated proxy. If you submitted your proxy by telephone or the Internet, you may change your vote or revoke your proxy with a later telephone or Internet proxy, as the case may be. Attendance at the Annual Meeting will not have the effect of revoking a proxy unless you give written notice of revocation to the Secretary before the proxy is exercised or you vote by written ballot at the Annual Meeting.

In the election of directors, you may vote “FOR” all of the nominees or your vote may be “WITHHELD” with respect to one or more of the nominees. For the other items of business, you may vote “FOR,” vote “AGAINST” or “ABSTAIN.” If you “ABSTAIN,” the abstention has the same effect as a vote “AGAINST.” If you provide specific instructions, your shares will be voted as you instruct. If you sign your proxy card or voting instruction form with no instructions, your shares will be voted in accordance with the recommendations of the board (“FOR” all of the nominees to the board, “FOR” approval of the Amended and Restated 2005 Stock Incentive Plan, and “FOR” ratification of the independent registered public accounting firm) and in the discretion of the proxy holders on any other matters that properly come before the meeting.
 
 
In the election of directors, the nine persons receiving the highest number of “FOR” votes at the Annual Meeting will be elected. All other proposals require the affirmative “FOR” vote of a majority of the shares present and voting at the Annual Meeting in person or by proxy. If you hold shares beneficially in street name and do not provide your broker or nominee with voting instructions, your shares may constitute “broker non-votes.” Generally, broker non-votes occur on a matter when a broker is not permitted to vote on that matter without instructions from the beneficial owner and instructions are not given. In tabulating the voting result for any particular proposal, shares that constitute broker non-votes are not considered entitled to vote on that proposal. Thus, broker non-votes will not affect the outcome of any matter being voted on at the Annual Meeting, assuming that a quorum is obtained. Abstentions have the same effect as votes against the matter.
 
 
Stockholders may not cumulate votes in the election of directors, which means that each stockholder may vote no more than the number of shares he or she owns for a single director candidate.
 
 
The presence at the Annual Meeting, in person or by proxy, of the holders of a majority of common stock outstanding on the Record Date will constitute a quorum. As of the close of business on the Record Date, there were 28,530,988 shares of our common stock outstanding. Both abstentions and broker non-votes are counted for the purpose of determining the presence of a quorum.
 
 
Our employees, officers and directors may solicit proxies. We will bear the cost of soliciting proxies and will reimburse brokerage houses and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries for their reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for forwarding proxy and solicitation material to the owners of common stock.
 
 
Please promptly vote by signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the postage-prepaid return envelope provided, or by submitting your proxy by telephone or the Internet, so that your shares can be voted. Voting now will not limit your right to attend or vote at the Annual Meeting.

Proposal 1
 
Election of Directors
 
 
At the Annual Meeting, nine persons will be elected as members of your board of directors, each for a one-year term or until their successors are elected and qualified. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the board of directors has recommended, and the board of directors has designated, the nine persons listed below for election at the Annual Meeting. The proxies given to the proxy holders will be voted or not voted as directed and, if no direction is given, will be voted FOR each of the nominees. Your board of directors knows of no reason why any of these nominees should be unable or unwilling to serve. However, if for any reason any nominee should be unable or unwilling to serve, the proxies will be voted for any nominee designated to fill the vacancy by your board of directors, taking into account the recommendations of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.
 
The names of the board of directors’ nominees, their ages as of March 15, 2009, and certain biographical information about the nominees are set forth below.

Table of Contents

an “independent director” within the meaning of Rule 4200 of The NASDAQ Stock Market. Dr. Scott and Ms. Popovits are not independent because they are employed by the Company. All of the nominees are members of the board standing for reelection as directors. For Messrs. Byers, Colella, Goldberg and Livingston, Drs. Cohen and Myers and Ms. Graham, the board of directors considered their relationship and transactions with the Company as directors and securityholders of the Company. For Mr. Baker, the board of directors considered Mr. Baker’s status as a director and securityholder, and ordinary course transactions between the Company and another company for which Mr. Baker serves as a director.
 
 
Our board of directors held seven meetings in 2008. Each director attended at least 75% of the aggregate number of meetings of the board of directors held during the period for which such director served on our board of directors and of the committees on which such director served. The independent directors meet in regularly scheduled executive sessions at in-person meetings of the board of directors without the participation of the President and Chief Executive Officer or the other members of management. We do not have a policy that requires the attendance of directors at the Annual Meeting. Three board members attended our 2008 annual meeting.
 
 
Below is a description of each committee of the board of directors. The board of directors has determined that each director who serves on the Audit, Compensation, and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees is “independent,” as that term is defined by applicable listing standards of The NASDAQ Stock Market and rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, and has adopted written charters for these committees. These charters are available on the investor section of our website (www.genomichealth.com).

Functions: The Compensation Committee’s primary functions are to assist the board of directors in meeting its responsibilities with regard to oversight and determination of executive compensation and to review and make recommendations with respect to major compensation plans, policies and programs of the Company. Other specific duties and responsibilities of the Compensation Committee are to review, and make recommendations for approval by the independent members of the board of directors regarding compensation of our President and Chief Executive Officer and other executive officers, and administer our stock plans and other equity-based compensation plans.
 
The board of directors has established a Non-Management Stock Option Committee, the members of which are Randal W. Scott and Kimberly J. Popovits. The Committee has been delegated the authority to grant options to new employees, other than to any member of our board of directors, individuals designated by our board directors as “Section 16 officers,” and employees who hold the title of Vice President of above.

Number of Meetings in 2008: 3
 
Functions: The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee’s primary functions are to identify qualified individuals to become members of the board of directors, determine the composition of the board and its committees, and monitor a process to assess board effectiveness. Other specific duties and responsibilities of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee are to recommend nominees to fill vacancies on the board of directors, review and make recommendations to the board of directors with respect to candidates for director proposed by stockholders, and review on an annual basis the functioning and effectiveness of the board and its committees.
 
 
The board of directors nominates directors for election at each annual meeting of stockholders and elects new directors to fill vacancies when they arise. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has the responsibility to identify, evaluate, recruit and recommend qualified candidates to the board of directors for nomination or election.
 
The board of directors has as an objective that its membership be composed of experienced and dedicated individuals with diversity of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will select candidates for director based on their character, judgment, diversity of experience, business acumen, and ability to act on behalf of all stockholders. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee believes that nominees for director should have experience, such as experience in management or accounting and

Table of Contents

finance, or industry and technology knowledge, that may be useful to Genomic Health and the board of directors, high personal and professional ethics, and the willingness and ability to devote sufficient time to carry out effectively their duties as directors. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee believes it appropriate for at least one, and, preferably, multiple, members of the board of directors to meet the criteria for an “audit committee financial expert” as defined by rules of the SEC, and for a majority of the members of the board of directors to meet the definition of “independent director” under the rules of The NASDAQ Stock Market. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee also believes it appropriate for key members of our management to participate as members of the board of directors.
 
Prior to each annual meeting of stockholders, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee identifies nominees first by evaluating the current directors whose term will expire at the annual meeting and who are willing to continue in service. These candidates are evaluated based on the criteria described above, including as demonstrated by the candidate’s prior service as a director, and the needs of the board of directors with respect to the particular talents and experience of its directors. In the event that a director does not wish to continue in service, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee determines not to re-nominate the director, or a vacancy is created on the board of directors as a result of a resignation, an increase in the size of the board or other event, the Committee will consider various candidates for board membership, including those suggested by the Committee members, by other board of directors members, by any executive search firm engaged by the Committee or by stockholders. The Committee recommended all of the nominees for election included in this Proxy Statement.
 
A stockholder who wishes to suggest a prospective nominee for the board of directors should notify Genomic Health’s Secretary or any member of the Committee in writing with any supporting material the stockholder considers appropriate.
 
In addition, our Bylaws contain provisions that address the process by which a stockholder may nominate an individual to stand for election to the board of directors at our annual meeting of stockholders. In order to nominate a candidate for director, a stockholder must give timely notice in writing to Genomic Health’s Secretary and otherwise comply with the provisions of our Bylaws. To be timely, our Bylaws provide that we must have received the stockholder’s notice not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days prior to the first anniversary date of the preceding year’s annual meeting; however, if we have not held an annual meeting in the previous year or the date of the annual meeting is called for a date that is more than 30 days before or more than 60 days after the first anniversary date of the preceding year’s annual meeting, we must have received the stockholder’s notice not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to the date of the scheduled annual meeting or the 7th day following the earlier of the day on which notice of the annual meeting date was mailed or the day of the first public announcement of the annual meeting date. An adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting will not commence a new time period or extend any time period for the giving of the stockholder’s notice described above. Information required by the Bylaws to be in the notice includes the name and contact information for the candidate and the person making the nomination, and other information about the nominee that must be disclosed in proxy solicitations under Section 14 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the related rules and regulations under that Section.
 
Stockholder nominations must be made in accordance with the procedures outlined in, and include the information required by, our Bylaws and must be addressed to: Secretary, Genomic Health, Inc., 301 Penobscot Drive, Redwood City, California 94063. You can obtain a copy of our Bylaws by writing to the Secretary at this address.
 
 
If you wish to communicate with the board of directors, you may send your communication in writing to: Secretary, Genomic Health, Inc., 301 Penobscot Drive, Redwood City, California 94063. You must include your name and address in the written communication and indicate whether you are a stockholder of Genomic Health. The Secretary will review any communication received from a stockholder, and all material communications from stockholders will be forwarded to the appropriate director or directors or committee of the board of directors based on the subject matter.

It is our policy that all employees, officers and directors must avoid any activity that is or has the appearance of conflicting with the interests of the Company. This policy is included in our Code of Business Conduct. We conduct a review of all related party transactions for potential conflict of interest situations on an ongoing basis and all such transactions relating to executive officers and directors must be approved by the independent and disinterested members of our board of directors or an independent and disinterested committee of the board.

(3) Represents the compensation expense related to outstanding options that we recognized for the year ended December 31, 2008 under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123 (revised 2004), or SFAS 123R, excluding any estimates for forfeitures, rather than amounts paid to or realized by the named individual and includes expenses we recognized in 2008 for option grants in prior periods. Compensation expense is determined by computing the fair value of each option on the grant date in accordance with SFAS 123R and recognizing that amount as expense ratably over the option vesting term. See Note 10 of Notes to our Consolidated Financial Statements set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008 for the assumptions made in determining SFAS 123R values. The SFAS 123R value of an option as of the grant date is spread over the number of months in which the option is subject to vesting and includes ratable amounts expensed for option grants in prior years. There can be no assurance that options will be exercised (in which case no value will be realized by the individual) or that the value on exercise will approximate the compensation expense we recognized. In 2008, Messrs. Baker, Byers, Colella and Livingston and Drs. Cohen and Myers each received an option to purchase 8,250 shares of our common stock with a grant date fair value of $85,400, and Ms. Graham received an option to purchase 16,500 shares of our common stock with a grant date fair value of $150,200.

Directors who are our employees do not receive any fees for their service on our board of directors. During 2008, Dr. Scott and Ms. Popovits were our only employee directors.
 
Our outside directors receive an annual retainer of $20,000 and Mr. Livingston, as chairman of our Audit Committee, receives an annual retainer of $30,000. We also reimburse our non-employee directors for reasonable expenses in connection with attendance at board of director and committee meetings.
 
In addition to cash compensation for services as a member of the board, non-employee directors also are eligible to receive nondiscretionary, automatic grants of stock options under our 2005 Stock Incentive Plan. An outside director who joins our board is automatically granted an initial option to purchase 16,500 shares upon first becoming a member of our board of directors. The initial option vests and becomes exercisable over four years, with the first 25% of the shares subject to the initial option vesting on the first anniversary of the date of grant and the remainder vesting monthly thereafter. On the first business day following each regularly scheduled annual meeting of stockholders, each outside director is automatically granted a nonstatutory option to purchase 8,250 shares of our common stock, provided the director has served on our board of directors for at least six months. These options vest and become exercisable on the first anniversary of the date of grant or immediately prior to our next annual meeting of stockholders, if earlier. The options granted to outside directors under our 2005 Stock Incentive Plan have a per share exercise price equal to 100% of the fair market value of the underlying shares on the date of grant, a term of 10 years, and become fully vested in the event of a change in control.
 
Executive Compensation
 
 
 
We believe that compensation of our executive officers should:
 
  •  encourage creation of stockholder value and achievement of strategic corporate objectives;
 
  •  attract and retain qualified, skilled and dedicated executives on a long-term basis;
 
  •  reward past performance and provide incentives for future performance; and
 
  •  provide fair compensation consistent with our internal compensation programs.
 
Our philosophy is to align the interests of our stockholders and management by integrating compensation with our annual and long-term corporate and financial objectives, including through equity ownership by management. In order to attract and retain qualified personnel, we strive to offer a total compensation package competitive with companies in the life sciences industry, taking into account relative company size, performance and geographic location as well as individual responsibilities and performance. Our compensation philosophy with respect to our executive officers has and continues to focus more on the use of equity-based compensation rather than cash-based compensation.
 
 
The Compensation Committee of our board of directors administers and interprets our executive compensation and benefits policies, including our stock option plan, and reviews and makes recommendations to the independent members of the board of directors with respect to major compensation plans, policies and programs. For 2008, the Compensation Committee evaluated the performance of Randal W. Scott, our Chief Executive Officer, or CEO, in 2008, and made recommendations to the independent members of the board regarding the CEO’s compensation in light of the goals and objectives of our compensation program. Dr. Scott and the Compensation Committee together assessed the performance of our other executive officers, based on initial recommendations from Dr. Scott. The Committee’s recommendations were then submitted to the independent members of the board for their consideration and approval.
 
The Compensation Committee and the independent members of the board have a broad range of experience relating to executive compensation matters for similarly situated companies. In setting the level of cash and equity

Table of Contents

compensation for our executive officers, the Compensation Committee and the independent members of our board consider various factors, including the performance of the Company and the individual executive during the year, the uniqueness and relative importance of the executive’s skill set to the Company, the executive’s historical cash and equity compensation levels, the executive’s expected future contributions to the Company, the percentage of vested versus unvested options held by the executive, the level of the executive’s stock ownership and the Company’s compensation philosophy for all employees.
 
Market Reference Data.  While the Compensation Committee did not use market benchmarks to determine its recommendations for executive compensation for 2008, the Committee reviewed market reference data to evaluate the competitiveness of our executive officers’ compensation and to determine whether the total compensation paid to each of our named executive officers was reasonable in the aggregate. However, the Compensation Committee did not limit its decision to or target any particular range or level of total compensation paid to executive officers at these companies. In connection with its analysis, the Committee reviewed information prepared by Compensia Inc., a compensation consultant, comparing our executive compensation with data from the Radford Biotechnology Executive Compensation Survey with respect to companies in the San Francisco Bay Area with revenues between $50 million and $200 million and between 150 and 499 employees and a peer group comprised of the following 13 biotechnology and diagnostic companies:
 
         
Abaxis
  Human Genome Sciences   Myriad Genetics
Cepheid
  Incyte Corporation   Third Wave Technologies
Decode Genetics
  Lexicon Pharmaceuticals   ZymoGenetics
Exelixis
  Maxygen    
Gen-Probe Incorporated
  Monogram Biosciences    
 
The analysis indicated that 2008 base salary for our executive officers other than the CEO approximated the 50th percentile, while base salary for our CEO was well below the 25th percentile. The analysis also indicated that target total cash compensation (salary plus potential bonus) for our executive officers other than our CEO approximated the 25th percentile, and that target total cash compensation for our CEO was well below the 25th percentile. According to the analysis, total direct compensation approximated the 45th percentile for all executive officers other than our CEO, and total direct compensation for our CEO was well below the 25th percentile. Total direct compensation for our executives equaled target total cash compensation plus the Black-Scholes value of options awarded in December 2007.
 
Equity Grant Practices.  The Compensation Committee administers our stock option plan for executive officers, employees, consultants and outside directors, under which it grants options to purchase our common stock with an exercise price equal to the fair market value of a share of our common stock on the date of grant, which is the closing price on the date of grant. We do not coordinate the timing of equity award grants with the release of financial results or other material announcements by the Company; our annual equity grants are made at regularly scheduled board and Compensation Committee meetings.
 
Each executive officer is initially granted an option when he or she begins working for us. The amount of the grant is based on his or her position with us, relevant prior experience and market conditions. These initial grants generally vest over four years and no shares vest before the one-year anniversary of the option grant. We spread the vesting of our options over four years to compensate executives for their contribution over a period of time and to provide an incentive to focus on our longer term goals.
 
In the future, the Compensation Committee and independent members of our board of directors may consider awarding additional or alternative forms of equity incentives, such as grants of restricted stock, restricted stock units and other performance-based awards.
 
Miscellaneous.  We do not enter into employment or severance contracts with our executive officers as we do not believe these types of arrangements facilitate our compensation goals and objectives. We do not have a stock ownership or stock retention policy that requires executive officers to own stock in Genomic Health or retain options they exercise. We do not have an employee stock purchase plan. In 2008, we made up to a $1,000 matching 401(k) plan contribution for all eligible employee and executive officers, and we expect to make the same matching contribution in 2009.

Tax Deductibility of Compensation.  We generally intend to qualify executive compensation for deductibility without limitation under section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Section 162(m) places a limit of $1,000,000 on the amount of compensation we may deduct in any one year with respect to our executive officers other than our Chief Financial Officer. None of the non-exempt compensation we paid to any of our executive officers for 2008 as calculated for purposes of section 162(m) exceeded the $1,000,000 limit.
 
 
Our compensation structure for executive officers consists of a combination of base salary, bonus and equity-based compensation. Because of our egalitarian culture, we do not have programs providing for personal benefit perquisites to officers. The Compensation Committee makes recommendations with respect to executive officer compensation, to be approved by the independent members of the board of directors.
 
Base Salary.  The Compensation Committee reviews base salaries for executive officers on an annual basis, adjusting salaries based on individual and Company performance. In December 2007, the Committee recommended and the independent members of the board of directors approved increases in base salaries for 2008 for the named executive officers except for Dr. Scott ranging from 10% to 15.5%. Pursuant to his request, Dr. Scott’s salary was not increased for 2008. In January 2009, based on the recommendation of the Committee, the independent members of the board of directors approved salary increases for our named executive officers except for Dr. Scott ranging from 7.0% to 10.5%. Dr. Scott’s salary was increased by 3.6%. For both years, the increases were established after considering job performance and responsibilities, internal pay alignment and marketplace competitiveness, among other things. In the case of Ms. Popovits and Mr. Cole, increases in base salary for 2009 also reflected the additional management responsibilities resulting from the appointment in January 2009 of Ms. Popovits as our President and Chief Executive Officer and Mr. Cole as our Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer.
 
Annual Bonus.  We have a bonus pool for our employees that is tied to corporate and operational goals. Prior to 2007, we had not paid cash bonuses to our executive officers. Since 2007, our executive officers have been eligible to participate in our cash bonus program. For 2008, the eligible bonus pool for all employees was 10% of the Company’s total salary base, but there were no preset limitations on minimum or maximum bonus amounts for any employee. While bonuses for non-executive employees were based in part on achievement of corporate goals established by our executive officers and board of directors, bonuses for executive officers were determined by the Compensation Committee and independent members of our board of directors at the time of their annual compensation review based on their assessment of corporate and individual achievements. For 2008, the Committee determined to award bonuses to our executive officers that approximated 9.3% of annual base salaries, primarily because the corporate objectives for purposes of determining the 2008 bonus pool for non-executive employees were achieved at the 93% level. In addition, the Committee believed the executive team should be treated equally because corporate accomplishments were judged largely based on team performance and performance within their respective domains was relatively level among executive team members. The corporate bonus objectives for the non-executive employees were approved by the Committee and the board of directors for the first half and second half of the year, and included objectives related to driving top line revenue for the year, progress toward becoming break-even, success in adoption of our tests, regulatory related matters, organizational excellence, and pipeline development. Numerical levels and other specific corporate bonus objectives are not disclosed because we consider the information to be confidential and believe it would be competitively harmful if disclosed. In addition, bonus amounts paid constituted a small percentage of each executive officer’s total cash compensation.
 
For 2009, the eligible bonus pool for all employees will be 10% of the Company’s total salary base, with no preset limitations on minimum or maximum bonus amounts for any employee as in prior years. The eligible bonus pool for employees with titles of director and above, including our executive officers, will be subject to increase by 5% of the total salary base for those employees should the Company meet certain financial objectives and objectives with respect to commercialization of a colon cancer test. As with prior years, bonuses for executive officers will be determined by the Compensation Committee and independent members of our board of directors at the time of their annual compensation review based on their assessment of corporate and individual achievements.

Equity-Based Compensation.  We believe that providing executive officers who have responsibility for our management and growth with an opportunity to increase their stock ownership aligns the interests of the executive officers with those of our stockholders. Accordingly, the Compensation Committee considers stock option grants to be an important aspect in compensating and providing incentives to management. The Compensation Committee sets annual grants as part of its and the independent members of the board’s annual compensation review process. The Compensation Committee determined the number of shares underlying each stock option grant based upon the executive officer’s and the Company’s performance, the executive officer’s role and responsibilities, the executive officer’s base salary, comparison with comparable awards to individuals in similar positions in our industry using the survey data described above and previously determined stock grant guidelines for all employees.
 
In keeping with the objective of weighting compensation more toward equity-based compensation while considering the increase in our stock price, in December 2007, the Compensation Committee granted each named executive officer an option to purchase 30,000 shares of common stock. Option grants to executive officers in December 2008 ranged from 40,000 to 60,000 shares and were intended to reflect the above factors as well as increased responsibilities associated with the management changes in 2009.
 
Other Compensation.  All of our full-time employees, including our executive officers, may participate in our health programs, such as medical, dental and vision care coverage, and our 401(k) and life and disability insurance programs.
 
 
The following report of the Compensation Committee shall not be deemed to be “soliciting material” or “filed” with the SEC or to be incorporated by reference into any other filing by Genomic Health under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, except to the extent that we specifically incorporate it by reference into a document filed under those Acts.
 
The Compensation Committee has reviewed and discussed the Compensation Discussion and Analysis set forth above with Genomic Health’s management. Based on its review and those discussions, the Compensation Committee recommended to the board of directors that the Compensation Discussion and Analysis be included in our 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K and in this Proxy Statement.

There can be no assurance that options will be exercised (in which case no value will be realized by the individual) or that the value on exercise will approximate the compensation expense we recognized.

Table of Contents

 
 
The following table sets forth certain information as of April 17, 2009 as to shares of our common stock beneficially owned by: (1) each person who is known by us to own beneficially more than 5% of our common stock, (2) each of our named executive officers listed in the summary compensation table, (3) each of our directors and (4) all of our directors and executive officers as a group.
 
We have determined beneficial ownership in accordance with the rules of the SEC. Except as indicated by the footnotes below, we believe, based on the information furnished to us, that the persons and entities named in the table below have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of common stock that they beneficially own, subject to applicable community property laws.
 
In computing the number of shares of common stock beneficially owned by a person and the percentage ownership of that person, we deemed outstanding shares of common stock subject to options held by that person that are currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days after April 17, 2009, the record date for the Annual Meeting. We did not deem these shares outstanding, however, for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person.

The Audit Committee operates under a written charter adopted by the board of directors. A link to the Audit Committee Charter is available on our website at www.genomichealth.com. All members of the Audit Committee meet the independence standards established by The NASDAQ Stock Market.
 
The Audit Committee assists the board of directors in fulfilling its responsibility to oversee management’s implementation of Genomic Health’s financial reporting process. It is not the duty of the Audit Committee to plan or conduct audits or to determine that the financial statements are complete and accurate and are in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or to assess or determine the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Management is responsible for the financial statements and the reporting process, including the system of internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls. The independent registered public accounting firm is responsible for expressing an opinion on the conformity of those financial statements with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and of the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
 
In discharging its oversight role, the Audit Committee reviewed and discussed the audited financial statements contained in the Annual Report on Form 10-K with Genomic Health’s management and the independent registered public accounting firm.
 
The Audit Committee has discussed issues deemed significant by the independent registered public accounting firm, including those required by AICPA Professional Standards, Vol. 1, AU section 380, as adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in Rule 3200T. In addition, the Audit Committee has received the written disclosures and the letter from the independent registered public accounting firm required by applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding the independent registered public accounting firm’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence, and has discussed with the independent registered public accounting firm such firm’s independence.
 
The Audit Committee has discussed with Genomic Health’s independent registered public accounting firm, with and without management present, their evaluations of Genomic Health’s internal control over financial reporting and the overall quality of Genomic Health’s financial reporting.
 
In reliance on the reviews and discussion with management and the independent registered public accounting firm referred to above, the Audit Committee recommended to the board of directors, and the board approved, the inclusion of the audited financial statements in Genomic Health’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, for filing with the SEC. The Audit Committee has appointed Ernst & Young LLP to serve as Genomic Health’s independent registered public accounting firm for the 2009 fiscal year.

Proposal 2
 
 
In January 2009, the board of directors amended and restated our 2005 Stock Incentive Plan, subject to the approval of our stockholders at the Annual Meeting. The following summary of the principal features of the Plan is qualified by reference to the terms of the Plan, a copy of which is available without charge upon stockholder request to Secretary, Genomic Health, Inc., 301 Penobscot Drive, Redwood City, California 94063. The Plan has also been filed electronically with the Securities and Exchange Commission together with this Proxy Statement, and can be accessed on the SEC’s web site at http://www.sec.gov.
 
 
The amended and restated Plan approved by the board of directors and submitted for stockholder approval includes a provision that would increase the number of shares of our common stock reserved for issuance under the Plan from 5,000,000 to 8,980,000. The amended and restated Plan also extends the term under which awards may be granted under the Plan until January 27, 2019. In addition, the introductory paragraph of Section 11(a) of the Plan was revised to provide that adjustments in the number of shares available for issuance under the Plan in the event of stock splits, dividends or other changes shall be as appropriate and equitable.
 
We are also asking our stockholders to approve the material terms of the Plan to preserve corporate income tax deductions that may otherwise be disallowed pursuant to Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). Section 162(m) limits a corporation’s income tax deduction for compensation paid to certain executive officers who are “covered employees” within the meaning of Section 162(m) to $1,000,000 per person per year unless the compensation qualifies as “performance-based compensation.” For a grant under the Plan to qualify as “performance-based compensation,” among other requirements, the Plan must have been approved by our public stockholders. Awards granted under the Plan during a transition period ending on the earlier of the date of a material modification of the Plan or the Annual Meeting are, however, exempt from the deduction disallowance rule of Section 162(m). The availability of the exemption for awards of performance-based compensation therefore depends upon obtaining approval of the Plan by our public stockholders.
 
If stockholder approval of the amended and restated Plan is not obtained, no additional grants of stock options and no awards of stock appreciation rights, restricted shares or stock units will be made to our executive officers under the Plan following the Annual Meeting.
 
 
The Plan was adopted prior to, but became effective upon, our initial public offering in September 2005. The purpose of the Plan is to assist management in the recruitment, retention and motivation of employees, outside directors and consultants who are in a position to make material contributions to our long-term success and the creation of stockholder value. The Plan offers a significant incentive to encourage our employees, outside directors and consultants by enabling those individuals to acquire shares of our common stock, thereby increasing their proprietary interest in the growth and success of our Company.
 
The Plan provides for the direct award or sale of shares of common stock (including restricted stock), the award of stock units and stock appreciation rights, and the grant of both incentive stock options to purchase common stock intended to qualify for preferential tax treatment under Section 422 of the Code and nonstatutory stock options to purchase common stock that do not qualify for such treatment under the Code. All employees (including officers) and directors of the Company or any subsidiary and any consultant who performs services for the Company or a subsidiary are eligible to purchase shares of common stock and to receive awards of shares or grants of nonstatutory stock options. Only employees are eligible to receive grants of incentive stock options, stock units or stock appreciation rights.
 
As of December 31, 2008, 387 officers and employees and seven non-employee directors were eligible to be considered to purchase shares of common stock and to receive awards under the Plan. As of December 31, 2008, 129,011 shares had been issued upon exercise of options granted under the Plan, options to purchase 3,815,517 shares


21


Table of Contents

were outstanding, and 1,055,472 shares remained available for future grant. No restricted stock, stock units or stock appreciation rights have been granted under the Plan.
 
 
The Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee of our board of directors. Subject to the limitations set forth in the Plan, the Compensation Committee has the authority to determine, among other things, to whom awards will be granted, the number of shares subject to awards, the term during which an option or stock appreciation right may be exercised and the rate at which the awards may vest, including any performance criteria to which vesting may be subject. The Compensation Committee also has the authority to determine the consideration and methodology of payment for awards.
 
The board of directors has created a second committee, the Non-Management Stock Option Committee, which is authorized to make awards and grants under the Plan to new employees, other than to any member of our board of directors, individuals designated by our board of directors as “Section 16 officers,” and employees who hold the title of Vice President or above. This committee may not make any awards or grants to any new employee that total more than 50,000 shares of common stock.
 
 
Under the Plan, the maximum number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance as awards was initially set at 5,000,000. As amended and restated, 8,980,000 shares will be available for issuance under the Plan. All awards granted since our initial public offering have been granted under the Plan.
 
No award recipient may be granted incentive stock options that are exercisable for the first time in any calendar year for common stock having a total fair market value (determined as of the option grant) in excess of $100,000. In addition, no one award recipient may receive options, stock appreciation rights, restricted shares or stock units under the Plan in any calendar year that relate to more than 1,650,000 shares.
 
The exercise price of each option will be set by the Compensation Committee, subject to the following limits. The exercise price of an incentive stock option cannot be less than 100% of the common stock’s fair market value on the date the option is granted, and in the event an award recipient is deemed to be a 10% owner of our Company or one of our subsidiaries, the exercise price of an incentive stock option cannot be less than 110% of the common stock’s fair market value on the date the option is granted. The exercise price of a nonqualified stock option cannot be less than 85% of the common stock’s fair market value on the date the option is granted. On March 31, 2009, the closing price for our common stock on The NASDAQ Global Market was $24.38. The maximum period in which an option may be exercised will be fixed by the Compensation Committee but cannot exceed ten years, and in the event an award recipient is deemed to be a 10% owner of our Company or one of our subsidiaries, the maximum period for an incentive stock option granted to such award recipient cannot exceed five years.
 
These limitations, and the terms of outstanding awards, shall be adjusted as appropriate and equitable in the event of a stock dividend, stock split, reclassification of stock or similar events. If restricted shares are forfeited, then such shares will become available for awards under the Plan. If stock units, options, or stock appreciation rights are forfeited or terminate for any other reason before being settled or exercised, then the corresponding shares will again become available for awards under the Plan. If stock units are settled or stock appreciation rights are exercised, then only the number of shares, if any, actually issued in settlement of such stock units or stock appreciation rights will reduce the number of available shares and the balance will become available for awards under the Plan.
 
 
The terms of any awards of stock options under the Plan will be set forth in a stock option agreement to be entered into between the Company and the recipient. The Compensation Committee will determine the terms and conditions of such option grants, which need not be identical. Stock options may provide for the accelerated exercisability in the event of the award recipient’s death, disability, or retirement or other events and may provide for expiration prior to the end of its term in the event of the termination of the award recipient’s service. The


22


Table of Contents

Compensation Committee may modify, extend or renew outstanding options or may accept the cancellation of outstanding options in return for the grant of new options for the same or a different number of shares and at the same or a different exercise price, or in return for the grant of the same or a different number of shares. The option price may be paid in cash or, to the extent that the stock option agreement so provides, by surrendering shares of common stock, in consideration of services rendered to the Company, by delivery of an irrevocable direction to a securities broker to sell shares and to deliver all or part of the sale proceeds to the Company in payment of the aggregate exercise price, by delivery of an irrevocable direction to a securities broker or lender to pledge shares, as security for a loan, and to deliver all or part of the loan proceeds to the Company in payment of the aggregate exercise price, by delivering a full-recourse promissory note, or in any other form that is consistent with applicable laws, regulations and rules. Options generally will be nontransferable except in the event of the award recipient’s death, but the Compensation Committee may allow the transfer of non-qualified stock options through a gift or domestic relations order to the award recipient’s family members.
 
Stock options granted under the Plan generally must be exercised by the optionee before the earlier of the expiration of such option or 90 days after termination of the optionee’s employment, except that the period may be extended on certain events including death and termination of employment due to disability. Each stock option agreement will set forth the extent to which the award recipient will have the right to exercise the option following the termination of the recipient’s service with us, and the right to exercise the option of any executors or administrators of the award recipient’s estate or any person who has acquired such options directly from the award recipient by bequest or inheritance.
 
Options granted to non-employee directors generally must be exercised before the earlier of the expiration of the option or 12 months after termination of service as a director, and are subject to acceleration of vesting in the event of a change in control.
 
 
Each non-employee director who first joins our board of directors after the effective date of the Plan receives a nonstatutory option to purchase 16,500 shares of our common stock on the date of election to the board. Twenty-five percent of the shares subject to each option vest and become exercisable on the first anniversary of the date of grant. The balance of the shares vest and become exercisable monthly over a three year period beginning on the day that is one month after the first anniversary of the date of grant, at a monthly rate of 2.0833% of the number of shares subject to such options. In addition, on the business day after each annual meeting of our stockholders, each non-employee director who was not elected to the board of directors for the first time at such meeting receives an option to purchase 8,250 shares of common stock, provided that the non-employee director has served on the board for at least six months. Each annual option granted to non-employee directors vests and becomes exercisable on the first anniversary of the date of grant, or on the first business day following the next regular annual meeting of stockholders after the date of grant in the event such meeting occurs prior to the first anniversary date of the grant. Options granted to non-employee directors will become fully vested if a change in control occurs with respect to our Company during the director’s service.
 
 
The terms of any awards of restricted shares under the Plan will be set forth in a restricted share agreement to be entered into between the Company and the recipient. The Compensation Committee will determine the terms and conditions of such restricted share agreements, which need not be identical. A restricted share award may be subject to vesting requirements or transfer restrictions or both. Award recipients who are granted restricted shares generally have all of the rights of a stockholder with respect to such shares. Restricted shares may be issued for consideration determined by the Compensation Committee, including cash, cash equivalents, full-recourse promissory notes, past services and future services.
 
 
The terms of any awards of stock units under the Plan will be set forth in a restricted stock unit agreement to be entered into between the Company and the recipient. The Compensation Committee will determine the terms and


23


Table of Contents

conditions of such restricted stock unit agreements, which need not be identical. Stock units give an award recipient the right to acquire a specified number of shares of stock, or at the Compensation Committee’s discretion, the equivalent value in cash, at a future date upon the satisfaction of certain vesting conditions based upon a vesting schedule or performance criteria established by the Compensation Committee. Stock units may be granted in consideration of a reduction in the award recipient’s other compensation, but no cash consideration is typically required of the award recipient. Unlike restricted stock, the stock underlying stock units will not be issued until the stock units have vested, and recipients of stock units generally will have no voting or dividend rights prior to the time the vesting conditions are satisfied.
 
 
The terms of any awards of stock appreciation rights under the Plan will be set forth in an agreement to be entered into between the Company and the recipient. The Compensation Committee will determine the terms, conditions and restrictions of any such agreements, which need not be identical. A stock appreciation right generally entitles the award recipient to receive a payment upon exercise equal to the amount by which the fair market value of a share of common stock on the date of exercise exceeds the value of a share of common stock on the date of grant. The amount payable upon the exercise of a stock appreciation right may be settled in cash or by the issuance of shares of common stock.
 
 
The Plan sets forth performance criteria used in the case of an award intended to qualify as “performance-based compensation” under Section 162(m) of the Code. To qualify as a “performance-based compensation,” the number of shares or other benefits granted, issued, retainable or vested under an award may be made subject to the attainment of performance goals for a specified period of time relating to one or more of the following performance criteria, either individually, alternatively or in any combination, applied to either us as a whole or to a business unit or subsidiary, either individually, alternatively or in any combination, and measured either annually or cumulatively over a period of years, on an absolute basis or relative to a pre-established target, to previous years’ results or to a designated comparison group or index, in each case as specified by the Compensation Committee in the award: (a) cash flow, (b) earnings per share, (c) earnings before interest, taxes and amortization, (d) return on equity, (e) total stockholder return, (f) share price performance, (g) return on capital, (h) return on assets or net assets, (i) revenue, (j) income or net income, (k) operating income or net operating income, (l) operating profit or net operating profit, (m) operating margin or profit margin, (n) return on operating revenue, (o) return on invested capital, or (p) market segment shares. The Compensation Committee may appropriately adjust any evaluation of performance under a qualifying performance criteria to exclude any of the following events that occurs during a performance period: (i) asset write-downs, (ii) litigation or claim judgments or settlements, (iii) the effect of changes in tax law, accounting principles or other such laws or provisions affecting reported results, (iv) accruals for reorganization and restructuring programs and (v) any extraordinary nonrecurring items as described in Accounting Principles Board Opinion No. 30 and/or in managements’ discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations appearing in our annual report to stockholders for the applicable year. If applicable, the Compensation Committee shall determine the qualifying performance criteria not later than the 90th day of the performance period, and shall determine and certify, for each award recipient, the extent to which the qualifying performance criteria have been met. The Compensation Committee may not in any event increase the amount of compensation payable under the Plan upon the attainment of a qualifying performance goal to an award recipient who is a “covered employee” within the meaning of Section 162(m).
 
 
No awards may be granted under the Plan after January 27, 2019. The board of directors may amend or terminate the Plan at any time, but an amendment will not become effective without the approval of our stockholders to the extent required by applicable laws, regulations or rules. No amendment or termination of the Plan will affect an award recipient’s rights under outstanding awards without the award recipient’s consent.

In the event of a subdivision of the outstanding common stock or a combination or consolidation of the outstanding common stock (by reclassification or otherwise) into a lesser number of shares, a spin-off or a similar occurrence, or declaration of a dividend payable in common stock or, if in an amount that has a material effect on the price of the shares, in cash, the Compensation Committee will make adjustments in the number and/or exercise price of options and/or the number of shares available under the Plan, as appropriate.
 
In the event of a merger or other reorganization, outstanding options will be subject to the agreement of merger or reorganization. Such agreement may provide for the assumption of outstanding options by the surviving corporation or its parent, for their continuation by the Company (if the Company is the surviving corporation), for payment of a cash settlement equal to the difference between the amount to be paid for one share under the agreement of merger or reorganization and the exercise price for each option, or for the acceleration of the exercisability of each option followed by the cancellation of options not exercised, in all cases without the optionees’ consent.
 
 
This is a brief summary of the federal income tax aspects of awards that may be made under the Plan based on existing U.S. federal income tax laws. This summary provides only the basic tax rules. It does not describe a number of special tax rules, including the alternative minimum tax and various elections that may be applicable under certain circumstances. It also does not reflect provisions of the income tax laws of any municipality, state or foreign country in which a holder may reside, nor does it reflect the tax consequences of a holder’s death. The tax consequences of awards under the Plan depend upon the type of award and, if the award is to an executive officer, whether the award qualifies as performance-based compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code.
 
Incentive Stock Options.  The recipient of an incentive stock option generally will not be taxed upon grant of the option. Federal income taxes are generally imposed only when the shares of stock from exercised incentive stock options are disposed of, by sale or otherwise. The amount by which the fair market value of the stock on the date of exercise exceeds the exercise price is, however, included in determining the option recipient’s liability for the alternative minimum tax. If the incentive stock option recipient does not sell or dispose of the stock until more than one year after the receipt of the stock and two years after the option was granted, then, upon sale or disposition of the stock, the difference between the exercise price and the market value of the stock as of the date of exercise will be treated as a capital gain, and not ordinary income. If a recipient fails to hold the stock for the minimum required time, at the time of the disposition of the stock, the recipient will recognize ordinary income in the year of disposition generally in an amount equal to any excess of the market value of the common stock on the date of exercise (or, if less, the amount realized or disposition of the shares) over the exercise price paid for the shares. Any further gain (or loss) realized by the recipient generally will be taxed as short-term or long-term gain (or loss) depending on the holding period. We will generally be entitled to a tax deduction at the same time and in the same amount as ordinary income is recognized by the option recipient.
 
Nonqualified Stock Options.  The recipient of stock options not qualifying as incentive stock options generally will not be taxed upon the grant of the option. Federal income taxes are generally due from a recipient of nonqualified stock options when the stock options are exercised. The difference between the exercise price of the option and the fair market value of the stock purchased on such date is taxed as ordinary income. Thereafter, the tax basis for the acquired stock is equal to the amount paid for the stock plus the amount of ordinary income recognized by the recipient. We will generally be entitled to a tax deduction at the same time and in the same amount as ordinary income is recognized by the option recipient by reason of the exercise of the option.
 
Other Awards.  Recipients who receive restricted stock unit awards will generally recognize ordinary income when they receive shares upon settlement of the awards, in an amount equal to the fair market value of the shares at that time. Recipients who receive awards of restricted stock subject to a vesting requirement generally recognize ordinary income at the time vesting occurs, in an amount equal to the fair market value of the stock at that time minus the amount, if any, paid for the stock. However, a recipient who receives restricted shares which are not vested may, within 30 days of the date the shares are transferred, elect in accordance with Section 83(b) of the Code to recognize ordinary compensation income at the time of transfer of the shares rather than upon the vesting dates.

We will generally be entitled to a tax deduction at the same time and in the same amount as ordinary income is recognized by the recipient.
 
Section 162(m).  Section 162(m) would render non-deductible to us certain compensation in excess of $1,000,000 received in any year by certain executive officers unless such excess is “performance-based compensation” (as defined in the Code) or is otherwise exempt from Section 162(m), such as under the transition rule described above. The availability of the exemption for awards of performance-based compensation not covered by the transition period rule depends upon obtaining approval of the Plan by our public stockholders. Assuming stockholder approval, grants of options and stock appreciation rights, and grants of restricted shares and stock units conditioned on attainment of one or more performance goals set forth in the Plan, may qualify as performance-based compensation and be exempt from Section 162(m).
 
Section 409A.  Any deferrals made under the Plan, including awards granted under the Plan that are considered to be deferred compensation, must satisfy the requirements of Section 409A of the Code to avoid adverse tax consequences to participants. These requirements include limitations on election timing, acceleration of payments, and distributions. We intend to structure any deferrals and awards under the Plan to meet the applicable tax law requirements.
 
 
The Compensation Committee has not made any determination with respect to future awards under the Plan, and any allocation of such awards will be made only in accordance with the provisions of the Plan, including the additional shares of stock that the stockholders are being asked to approve. Because awards under the Plan are subject to the discretion of the Compensation Committee, awards under the Plan for the current or any future year are not determinable. Future option exercise prices under the Plan are not determinable because they will be based upon the fair market value of our common stock on the date of grant. No stock units, shares of restricted stock or stock appreciation rights have been awarded under the Plan.
 
Our named executive officers received option grants under the Plan as set forth in this Proxy Statement in the table entitled “Grants of Plan-Based Awards” under the caption “Executive Compensation.” Our non-employee directors received option grants under the Plan as set forth in this Proxy Statement in the section entitled “Director Compensation”. The following table sets forth information with respect to stock options granted under the Plan in 2008 to the following:
 
         
    Number of
 
Name and Position
  Options(#)(1)  
 
All current executive officers as a group (5 persons)
    230,000  
All current non-employee directors as a group (7 persons)
    66,000  
All employees and consultants, including current officers who are not executive officers, as a group
    895,380  
 
 
(1) All options were granted at an exercise price per share equal to the fair market value on the date of grant.
 
 
Approval of the amended and restated 2005 Stock Incentive Plan requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present and voting at the Annual Meeting. Unless marked to the contrary, proxies received will be voted “FOR” approval of the amended and restated 2005 Stock Incentive Plan.

Proposal 3
 
 
The Audit Committee has appointed Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2009. Representatives of Ernst & Young LLP are expected to be present at the Annual Meeting. They will have an opportunity to make a statement, if they desire to do so, and will be available to respond to appropriate questions. Although stockholder ratification of our independent registered public accounting firm is not required by our Bylaws or otherwise, we are submitting the selection of Ernst & Young LLP to our stockholders for ratification to permit stockholders to participate in this important corporate decision.
 
 
Ernst & Young LLP has audited our financial statements since our inception in 2000. Aggregate fees for professional services rendered for us by Ernst & Young LLP for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007 were as follows:
 
                 
Services Provided
  2008     2007  
 
Audit
  $ 594,000     $ 627,000  
Audit-Related
           
Tax
    49,000       59,000  
All Other
           
                 
Total
  $ 643,000     $ 686,000  
                 
 
Audit fees.  For the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, audit fees were for the integrated audits of our annual financial statements and our internal control over financial reporting and the review of quarterly financial statements included in our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. For the year ended December 31, 2007, audit fees also included services provided in connection with our Registration Statement on Form S-3, including comfort letters and consents.
 
Tax fees.  For the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, tax fees were for the preparation of our tax returns, tax planning and tax consulting services. For the year December 31, 2007, tax fees also included fees for a study of change in control under Section 382 of the Code and a state and local nexus study.
 
 
The Audit Committee has implemented pre-approval policies and procedures related to the provision of audit and non-audit services. Under these procedures, the Audit Committee pre-approves both the type of services to be provided by Ernst & Young LLP and the estimated fees related to these services. All of the services in 2007 and 2008 were pre-approved.
 
During the approval process, the Audit Committee considers the impact of the types of services and the related fees on the independence of the independent registered public accounting firm. The services and fees must be deemed compatible with the maintenance of that firm’s independence, including compliance with rules and regulations of the SEC.
 
Throughout the year, the Audit Committee will review any revisions to the estimates of audit and non-audit fees initially approved.
 
 
Ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present and voting at the Annual Meeting in person or by proxy. Unless marked to the contrary, proxies received will be voted “FOR” ratification of the appointment. In the event ratification is not obtained, the Audit Committee will

review its future selection of our independent registered public accounting firm but will not be required to select a different independent registered public accounting firm.
 
Your board of directors recommends a vote FOR ratification of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm.
 
 
If a stockholder wishes to present a proposal to be considered for inclusion in our proxy statement for the 2010 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the proponent and the proposal must comply with the proxy proposal submission rules of the SEC. One of the requirements is that the proposal be received by Genomic Health’s Secretary no later than December 22, 2009. Proposals we receive after that date will not be included in the proxy statement. We urge stockholders to submit proposals by Certified Mail — Return Receipt Requested.
 
A stockholder proposal not included in our proxy statement for the 2010 Annual Meeting will not be eligible for presentation at the meeting unless the stockholder gives timely notice of the proposal in writing to our Secretary at our principal executive offices and otherwise complies with the provisions of our Bylaws. To be timely, our Bylaws provide that we must have received the stockholder’s notice not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days prior to the first anniversary date of the preceding year’s annual meeting; however, if we have not held an annual meeting in the previous year or the date of the annual meeting is called for a date that is more than 30 days before or more than 60 days after the first anniversary date of the preceding year’s annual meeting, we must have received the stockholder’s notice not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to the date of the scheduled annual meeting or the 7th day following the earlier of the day on which notice of the annual meeting date was mailed or the day of the first public announcement of the annual meeting date. An adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting will not commence a new time period or extend any time period for the giving of the stockholder’s notice described above. The stockholder’s notice must set forth, as to each proposed matter, the information required by our Bylaws. The presiding officer of the meeting may refuse to acknowledge any matter not made in compliance with the foregoing procedure.
 
 
Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of our equity securities, to file reports of ownership on Forms 3, 4 and 5 with the SEC. Officers, directors and greater than 10% stockholders are required to furnish us with copies of all Forms 3, 4 and 5 they file.
 
Based solely on our review of the copies of such forms we have received and written representations from certain reporting persons that they filed all required reports, we believe that all of our officers, directors and greater than 10% stockholders complied with all Section 16(a) filing requirements applicable to them with respect to transactions during 2008, except for Forms 4 related to sales of common stock pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 sales plan by Dr. Baker on November 12, 2008 and December 10, 2008, which incorrectly reported that an aggregate of 9,258 shares were sold from the Baker Family Charitable Remainder Trust. On March 6, 2009, amended Forms 4 were filed to correctly report that the shares sold on these dates were actually held directly in Dr. Baker’s name.
 
 
Your board of directors does not know of any other business that will be presented at the Annual Meeting. If any other business is properly brought before the Annual Meeting, the proxy holders will vote in accordance with their judgement unless you direct them otherwise in your proxy instructions.

GENOMIC HEALTH, INC.
2005 STOCK INCENTIVE PLAN
(As amended and restated on January 28, 2009)
SECTION 1. ESTABLISHMENT AND PURPOSE.
     The Plan was adopted by the Board of Directors on September 8, 2005, and shall be effective as of the date of the initial offering of Stock to the public pursuant to a registration statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Effective Date”). The Plan was amended and restated on January 28, 2009. The purpose of the Plan is to promote the long-term success of the Company and the creation of stockholder value by (a) encouraging Employees, Outside Directors and Consultants to focus on critical long-range objectives, (b) encouraging the attraction and retention of Employees, Outside Directors and Consultants with exceptional qualifications and (c) linking Employees, Outside Directors and Consultants directly to stockholder interests through increased stock ownership. The Plan seeks to achieve this purpose by providing for Awards in the form of restricted shares, stock units, options (which may constitute incentive stock options or nonstatutory stock options) or stock appreciation rights.
SECTION 2. DEFINITIONS.
     (a) “Affiliate” shall mean any entity other than a Subsidiary, if the Company and/or one or more Subsidiaries own not less than 50% of such entity.
     (b) “Award” shall mean any award of an Option, a SAR, a Restricted Share or a Stock Unit under the Plan.
     (c) “Board of Directors” shall mean the Board of Directors of the Company, as constituted from time to time.
     (d) “Change in Control” shall mean the occurrence of any of the following events:
     (i) A change in the composition of the Board of Directors occurs, as a result of which fewer than one-half of the incumbent directors are directors who either:
     (A) Had been directors of the Company on the “look-back date” (as defined below) (the “original directors”); or
     (B) Were elected, or nominated for election, to the Board of Directors with the affirmative votes of at least a majority of the aggregate of the original directors who were still in office at the time of the election or nomination and the directors whose election or nomination was previously so approved (the “continuing directors”); or

-1-


Table of Contents

     (ii) Any “person” (as defined below) who by the acquisition or aggregation of securities, is or becomes the “beneficial owner” (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act), directly or indirectly, of securities of the Company representing 50% or more of the combined voting power of the Company’s then outstanding securities ordinarily (and apart from rights accruing under special circumstances) having the right to vote at elections of directors (the “Base Capital Stock”); except that any change in the relative beneficial ownership of the Company’s securities by any person resulting solely from a reduction in the aggregate number of outstanding shares of Base Capital Stock, and any decrease thereafter in such person’s ownership of securities, shall be disregarded until such person increases in any manner, directly or indirectly, such person’s beneficial ownership of any securities of the Company; or
     (iii) The consummation of a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another entity or any other corporate reorganization, if persons who were not stockholders of the Company immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or other reorganization own immediately after such merger, consolidation or other reorganization 50% or more of the voting power of the outstanding securities of each of (A) the continuing or surviving entity and (B) any direct or indirect parent corporation of such continuing or surviving entity; or

An Optionee, or a transferee of an Optionee, shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any Shares covered by his Option until the date of the issuance of a stock certificate for such Shares.

Such Shares shall be valued at their Fair Market Value on the date when the new Shares are purchased under the Plan. The Optionee shall not surrender, or attest to the ownership of, Shares in payment of the Exercise

-11-

Price if such action would cause the Company to recognize compensation expense (or additional compensation expense) with respect to the Option for financial reporting purposes.
     (c) Services Rendered. At the discretion of the Committee, Shares may be awarded under the Plan in consideration of services rendered to the Company or a Subsidiary prior to the award.

     (d) Cashless Exercise. To the extent that a Stock Option Agreement so provides, payment may be made all or in part by delivery (on a form prescribed by the Committee) of an irrevocable direction to a securities broker to sell Shares and to deliver all or part of the sale proceeds to the Company in payment of the aggregate Exercise Price.
     (e) Exercise/Pledge.

A SAR granted under the Plan may provide that it will be exercisable only in the event of a Change in Control.
     (e) Effect of Change in Control. The Committee may determine, at the time of granting a SAR or thereafter, that such SAR shall become fully exercisable as to all Common Shares subject to such SAR in the event that a Change in Control occurs with respect to the Company.

Upon exercise of a SAR, the Optionee (or any person having the right to exercise the SAR after his or her death) shall receive from the Company (a) Shares, (b) cash or (c) a combination of Shares and cash, as the Committee shall determine. The amount of cash and/or the Fair Market Value of Shares received upon exercise of SARs shall, in the aggregate, be equal to the amount by which the Fair Market Value (on the date of surrender) of the Shares subject to the SARs exceeds the Exercise Price.
     (g) Modification or Assumption of SARs. Within the limitations of the Plan, the Committee may modify, extend or assume outstanding SARs or may accept the cancellation of outstanding SARs (whether granted by the Company or by another issuer) in return for the grant of new SARs for the same or a different number of shares and at the same or a different exercise price. The foregoing notwithstanding, no modification of a SAR shall, without the consent of the holder, materially impair his or her rights or obligations under such SAR.
     (h) Buyout Provisions. The Committee may at any time (a) offer to buy out for a payment in cash or cash equivalents a SAR previously granted, or (b) authorize an Optionee to elect to cash out a SAR previously granted, in either case at such time and based upon such terms and conditions as the Committee shall establish.
SECTION 10. STOCK UNITS.
     (a) Stock Unit Agreement. Each grant of Stock Units under the Plan shall be evidenced by a Stock Unit Agreement between the recipient and the Company. Such Stock Units shall be subject to all applicable terms of the Plan and may be subject to any other terms that are not inconsistent with the Plan. The provisions of the various Stock Unit Agreements entered into under the Plan need not be identical. Stock Units may be granted in consideration of a reduction in the recipient’s other compensation.

Vesting shall occur, in full or in installments, upon satisfaction of the conditions specified in the Stock Unit Agreement. A Stock Unit Agreement may provide for accelerated vesting in the event of the Participant’s death, disability or retirement or other events. The Committee may determine, at the time of granting Stock Units or thereafter, that all or part of such Stock Units shall become vested in the event that a Change in Control occurs with respect to the Company.
     (d) Voting and Dividend Rights. The holders of Stock Units shall have no voting rights. Prior to settlement or forfeiture, any Stock Unit awarded under the Plan may, at the Committee’s discretion, carry with it a right to dividend equivalents. Such right entitles the holder to be credited with an amount equal to all cash dividends paid on one Share while the Stock Unit is outstanding. Dividend equivalents may be converted into additional Stock Units. Settlement of dividend equivalents may be made in the form of cash, in the form of Shares, or in a combination of both. Prior to distribution, any dividend equivalents which are not paid shall be subject to the same conditions and restrictions (including without limitation, any forfeiture conditions) as the Stock Units to which they attach.
     (e) Form and Time of Settlement of Stock Units. Settlement of vested Stock Units may be made in the form of (a) cash, (b) Shares or (c) any combination of both, as determined by the Committee. The actual number of Stock Units eligible for settlement may be larger or smaller than the number included in the original Award, based on predetermined performance factors. Methods of converting Stock Units into cash may include (without limitation) a method based on the average Fair Market Value of Shares over a series of trading days. Vested Stock Units may be settled in a lump sum or in installments. The distribution may occur or commence when all vesting conditions applicable to the Stock Units have been satisfied or have lapsed, or it may be deferred to any later date. The amount of a deferred distribution may be increased by an interest factor or by dividend equivalents. Until an Award of Stock Units is settled, the number of such Stock Units shall be subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 11.
     (f) Death of Recipient. Any Stock Units Award that becomes payable after the recipient’s death shall be distributed to the recipient’s beneficiary or beneficiaries. Each recipient of a Stock Units Award under the Plan shall designate one or more beneficiaries for this purpose by filing the prescribed form with the Company. A beneficiary designation may be changed by filing the prescribed form with the Company at any time before the Award recipient’s death. If no beneficiary was designated or if no designated beneficiary survives the Award recipient, then any Stock Units Award that becomes payable after the recipient’s death shall be distributed to the recipient’s estate.
     (g) Creditors’ Rights. A holder of Stock Units shall have no rights other than those of a general creditor of the Company. Stock Units represent an unfunded and unsecured obligation of the Company, subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable Stock Unit Agreement.
SECTION 11. ADJUSTMENT OF SHARES.
      (a) Adjustments. In the event of a subdivision of the outstanding Stock, a declaration of a dividend payable in Shares, a declaration of a dividend payable in a form other than Shares

-14-


Table of Contents

in an amount that has a material effect on the price of Shares, a combination or consolidation of the outstanding Stock (by reclassification or otherwise) into a lesser number of Shares, a recapitalization, a spin-off or a similar occurrence, the Committee shall make appropriate and equitable adjustments in:
     (i) The number of Options, SARs, Restricted Shares and Stock Units available for future Awards under Section 5;
     (ii) The limitations set forth in Section 5(b);
     (iii) The number of NSOs to be granted to Outside Directors under Section 4(b);
     (iv) The number of Shares covered by each outstanding Option and SAR;
     (v) The Exercise Price under each outstanding Option and SAR; and
     (vi) The number of Stock Units included in any prior Award which has not yet been settled.
Except as provided in this Section 11, a Participant shall have no rights by reason of any issue by the Company of stock of any class or securities convertible into stock of any class, any subdivision or consolidation of shares of stock of any class, the payment of any stock dividend or any other increase or decrease in the number of shares of stock of any class.
     (b) Dissolution or Liquidation. To the extent not previously exercised or settled, Options, SARs and Stock Units shall terminate immediately prior to the dissolution or liquidation of the Company.
     (c) Reorganizations. In the event that the Company is a party to a merger or other reorganization, outstanding Awards shall be subject to the agreement of merger or reorganization. Such agreement shall provide for:
     (i) The continuation of the outstanding Awards by the Company, if the Company is a surviving corporation;
     (ii) The assumption of the outstanding Awards by the surviving corporation or its parent or subsidiary;
     (iii) The substitution by the surviving corporation or its parent or subsidiary of its own awards for the outstanding Awards;
     (iv) Full exercisability or vesting and accelerated expiration of the outstanding Awards; or
     (v) Settlement of the full value of the outstanding Awards in cash or cash equivalents followed by cancellation of such Awards.

     (d) Reservation of Rights. Except as provided in this Section 11, an Optionee or Offeree shall have no rights by reason of any subdivision or consolidation of shares of stock of any class, the payment of any dividend or any other increase or decrease in the number of shares of stock of any class. Any issue by the Company of shares of stock of any class, or securities convertible into shares of stock of any class, shall not affect, and no adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to, the number or Exercise Price of Shares subject to an Option. The grant of an Option pursuant to the Plan shall not affect in any way the right or power of the Company to make adjustments, reclassifications, reorganizations or changes of its capital or business structure, to merge or consolidate or to dissolve, liquidate, sell or transfer all or any part of its business or assets.
SECTION 12. DEFERRAL OF AWARDS.
     (a) Committee Powers. The Committee (in its sole discretion) may permit or require a Participant to:
     (i) Have cash that otherwise would be paid to such Participant as a result of the exercise of a SAR or the settlement of Stock Units credited to a deferred compensation account established for such Participant by the Committee as an entry on the Company’s books;
     (ii) Have Shares that otherwise would be delivered to such Participant as a result of the exercise of an Option or SAR converted into an equal number of Stock Units; or
     (iii) Have Shares that otherwise would be delivered to such Participant as a result of the exercise of an Option or SAR or the settlement of Stock Units converted into amounts credited to a deferred compensation account established for such Participant by the Committee as an entry on the Company’s books. Such amounts shall be determined by reference to the Fair Market Value of such Shares as of the date when they otherwise would have been delivered to such Participant.
     (b) General Rules. A deferred compensation account established under this Section 12 may be credited with interest or other forms of investment return, as determined by the Committee. A Participant for whom such an account is established shall have no rights other than those of a general creditor of the Company. Such an account shall represent an unfunded and unsecured obligation of the Company and shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable agreement between such Participant and the Company. If the deferral or conversion of Awards is permitted or required, the Committee (in its sole discretion) may establish rules, procedures and forms pertaining to such Awards, including (without limitation) the settlement of deferred compensation accounts established under this Section 12.
SECTION 13. AWARDS UNDER OTHER PLANS.
     The Company may grant awards under other plans or programs. Such awards may be settled in the form of Shares issued under this Plan. Such Shares shall be treated for all purposes under the Plan like Shares issued in settlement of Stock Units and shall, when issued, reduce the number of Shares available under Section 5.

Such NSOs, Restricted Shares and Stock Units shall be issued under the Plan. An election under this Section 14 shall be filed with the Company on the prescribed form.
     (c) Number and Terms of NSOs, Restricted Shares or Stock Units. The number of NSOs, Restricted Shares or Stock Units to be granted to Outside Directors in lieu of annual retainers and meeting fees that would otherwise be paid in cash shall be calculated in a manner determined by the Board. The terms of such NSOs, Restricted Shares or Stock Units shall also be determined by the Board.

Such Shares shall be valued at their Fair Market Value on the date when taxes otherwise would be withheld in cash. In no event may a Participant have Shares withheld that would otherwise be issued to him or her in excess of the number necessary to satisfy the legally required minimum tax withholding.
