YEAR 2007 SHAREHOLDERS PROPOSALS
PBG welcomes comments or suggestions from its shareholders. If a shareholder wants to have a proposal formally considered, including recommendations for Director, at the 2007 Annual Shareholders Meeting, and included in the Proxy Statement for that meeting, PBG must receive the proposal in writing on or before December 1, 2006. Please see CORPORATE GOVERNANCE-Committees of the Board of Directors-The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee for a description of the procedures to be followed for shareholder recommendations for Director. Proposals should be sent to the Secretary of The Pepsi Bottling Group, Inc. at One Pepsi Way, Somers, New York, 10589. If a proposal is received by February 13, 2007, PBG may include it in the Proxy Statement and, if it does, may use its discretionary authority to vote on the proposal. For proposals that are not submitted by February 13, 2007, PBG may use its discretionary voting authority when the proposal is raised at the 2007 Annual Meeting, without inclusion of the proposal in its Proxy Statement.
