Recently Completed Performance PeriodsPrevious Performance-Contingent Share Award Program
In January 2002, the Committee awarded the right to earn shares of Pfizer common stock to the executive officers, including the Named Executive Officers, for the 2002-2006 performance period under the 2001 Performance-Contingent Share Award Plan. To the extent the Companys performance exceeded the threshold performance level relative to the peer group, a varying amount of shares of common stock up to the maximum were earned.
The following table sets forth Pfizers performance ranking, based on total shareholder return and diluted earnings per share (as reported), relative to the performance of our pre-2005 pharmaceutical peer group, and the corresponding performance share payout.
