By Order of the Board of Directors
|Chief Executive Officer|
May 17, 2019
The Proxy Statement made available to stockholder on or about May 15, 2019 provides information about the matters that you will be asked to consider and to vote on at the Annual Meeting, except that additional information with respect to Proposal 4 listed above is set forth in the accompanying Supplement to the Proxy Statement.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE AVAILABILITY OF PROXY MATERIALS
FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING TO BE HELD ON JUNE 27, 2019.
This Supplement, the Proxy Statement, Proxy Card, as revised, and our Annual Report on Form 10-K are available at www.edocumentview.com/PFSW and the Investors section under SEC Filings of our website at www.pfsweb.com.
This Proxy Statement Supplement (the Supplement) is being filed to supplement the Definitive Proxy Statement of PFSweb, Inc. (the Company, we, or our) for its 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on June 27, 2019 at the Hilton Garden Inn, Allen, Texas, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Central Time (the Proxy Statement), which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on May 15, 2019, in order to add an additional Proposal to the original Proxy Statement. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Supplement have the meanings ascribed to them in the Proxy Statement.
The additional Proposal was inadvertently omitted from the Proxy Statement and Proxy Card when originally filed with the SEC. This Supplement amends and supplements the original Proxy Statement of the Company to, (i) add a new Proposal 4 to the Proxy Statement that provides for a non-binding, advisory vote of Company stockholders on the frequency with which the Companys stockholders shall have the advisory say-on-pay vote on compensation paid to our Named Executive Officers (referred to herein as Proposal 4 or Say on Pay Frequency). Other than the addition of this Proposal 4 to the Proxy Statement and the Proxy Card and the accompanying Updated Notice of the Annual Meeting that adds the Proposal 4, no other changes have been made to the Proxy Statement or the Proxy Card and they continue to be in full force and effect as originally filed and continue to seek the vote of Company stockholders for all proposals to be voted on at the Annual Meeting.
This Supplement relates to the new Proposal 4 to be considered by stockholders at the Annual Meeting and does not provide all of the information that is important to your decisions with respect to voting on all of the proposals that are being presented to stockholders for their vote at the Annual Meeting. Additional information is contained in the Proxy Statement, which was previously made available to you or mailed to you, if you requested a hard copy. To the extent that the information in this Supplement differs from, updates or conflicts with the information contained in the Proxy Statement, the information in this Supplement shall amend and supersede the information in the Proxy Statement. Except as so amended or superseded, all information set forth in the Proxy Statement remains unchanged and important for you to review. Accordingly, we urge you to read this Supplement carefully and in its entirety together with the Proxy Statement.
VOTING; REVOCABILITY OF PROXIES
Information contained in this Supplement relates to Proposal 4 that will be presented to stockholders at the Annual Meeting. Information regarding Proposals 1, 2 and 3 that will be presented to stockholders at the Annual Meeting can be found in the Proxy Statement as originally filed with the SEC on May 15, 2019, and which was previously made available to you or mailed to you, if you requested a hard copy.
Please note that if you have already voted your shares by one of the methods described in the Proxy Statement, we strongly encourage you to read this Supplement and to also vote on Proposal 4. If you sign and return the revised proxy card, it will revoke and replace any previous proxy you have submitted. If you do not sign and return the revised proxy card, your previous proxy will remain in effect, but it will not include any vote on the Say on Pay Frequency Proposal. In order to vote on the Say on Pay Frequency Proposal, you must submit a vote on Proposal 4 and sign and return the revised proxy card, or attend the Annual Meeting and vote in person.
Effect of Abstentions and Broker Non-Votes.
Shares of common stock present at the Annual Meeting but that abstain from voting on Proposal 4 are not treated as votes cast. Therefore, such abstention will have no effect on the outcome of the vote on Proposal 4. These abstentions, however, are counted towards establishing a quorum for the Annual Meeting. Broker non-votes (shares held by brokers, banks and other intermediaries that do not have discretionary authority to vote on any of the proposals on a matter and have not received voting instructions from their customers) will have no effect on the outcome of the vote, although they are counted towards establishing a quorum for the Annual Meeting. If your shares are registered in the name of a bank or brokerage firm and do not provide specific voting instructions to your bank, broker or other intermediary, the organization that holds your shares will not be authorized to vote on Proposal 4 or the other proposals, except for Proposal 3- the ratification of BDO USA, LLP as our independent auditor. If your shares are registered with the broker, bank or nominee firm, they may provide you with instructions on how to vote. Follow the instructions to access our proxy materials and vote by Internet or to request a paper or email copy of our proxy materials, including the Supplement. If you receive these materials in paper form, the materials include a voting instruction card so that you can instruct your broker or nominee how to vote your shares. Please check your voting instruction card or contact your broker or other nominee to determine whether you will be able to deliver your voting instructions by Internet or telephone.
Revocation of Proxies/Voting of Shares
Any stockholder giving a proxy may revoke it at any time before the votes are counted at the Annual Meeting by submission of a later dated proxy or subsequent Internet or telephonic proxy. Stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting who attend the Annual Meeting may revoke any proxy previously granted and vote in person at the Annual Meeting by written ballot. Unless so revoked, the shares represented by such proxies or voting instructions will be voted at the Annual Meeting and all adjournments or postponements of the Annual Meeting. Proxies solicited on behalf of the Board will be voted in accordance with the directions given.
If you have previously submitted voting instructions with respect to Proposals 1, 2 and/or 3, (i) submitting the enclosed proxy card with voting instructions that differ will serve to revoke those prior voting instructions in favor of the more recent instructions, (ii) submitting the enclosed proxy card with no voting instructions with respect to Proposals 1, 2 and 3 will result in the shares being voted on those matters as provided in the paragraph directly below and (iii) submitting the enclosed proxy card with voting instructions consistent with prior instructions received will have no impact on those prior instructions.
For stockholders of record, all shares represented by the proxies mailed to stockholders will be voted at the Annual Meeting in accordance with instructions given by the stockholders. Where proxies are returned without instructions, the shares will be voted: (1) FOR the election of each of the director nominees as a director of the Company; (2) FOR the approval, on a non-binding advisory basis, of the compensation of the Companys Named Executive Officers; (3) FOR the ratification of BDO USA, LLP as the Companys independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019; (4) FOR a frequency of every year for future non-binding, advisory stockholder votes on the compensation paid to our Named Executive Officers (except that shares will not be voted where the last proxy card received by the Company did not include this proposal); and (5) in the discretion of the proxy holders upon such other business as may properly come before the Annual Meeting.
ADVISORY VOTE ON THE FREQUENCY OF THE COMPENSATION OF
THE COMPANYS NAMED EXECUTIVE OFFICERS
As required by Section 14A of the Exchange Act, the Company is providing stockholders with a non-binding, advisory vote on the frequency with which the Companys stockholders shall have the advisory, non-binding say-on-pay vote on compensation paid to our Named Executive Officers provided for in Proposal 2, as set forth in the Proxy Statement.
Our stockholders voted on a similar proposal at our annual meeting of stockholders in 2013, with a majority of the votes cast voting to hold the say-on-pay vote every year. Since 2013, we have held the say-on-pay vote at every annual meeting, including this Annual Meeting.
The Board believes that an annual stockholder vote on the compensation paid to our Named Executive Officers represents a best practice in corporate governance and will provide the Board with current information on stockholder sentiment about our executive compensation program and enable the Board to respond timely, when deemed appropriate, to stockholder concerns about the program.
The Company is presenting this Proposal 4, which gives you as a stockholder the opportunity to inform the Company as to how often you wish us to include a proposal, similar to Proposal 2 above, in our Proxy Statement. In particular, we are asking whether the advisory vote should occur every year, every two years or every three years.
Recommendation and Vote Required
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE FOR 1 YEAR ON THE ADVISORY VOTE ON THE FREQUENCY OF THE SAY ON PAY VOTE FOR THE COMPENSATION PAID TO OUR NAMED EXECUTIVE OFFICERS.
The Board recommends holding an advisory vote on executive compensation similar to Proposal 2 annually. For voting purposes, the stockholders have the option to specify one of four choices on this Proposal 4 on the proxy card: every one year, every two years, every three years or abstain. If there is no designation on any proxy as to how the shares represented should be voted, the proxy will be voted for a frequency of every year. The advisory vote on frequency will be determined based on the number of years which receives the most votes cast. Shares of common stock that are present at the Annual Meeting but abstain from voting on such proposal are not treated as votes cast and will have no effect on the outcome of the vote on this proposal. Also, broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of the vote on this proposal.
As with your vote on Proposal 2, your vote on this Proposal 4 is an advisory vote, which means that the Company and the Board are not required to take any action based on the outcome of the vote. However, our Board and our Compensation Committee value the opinions of our stockholders and to the extent there is any significant vote in favor of one frequency over the other options, we will consider our stockholders sentiment and the Board will evaluate any appropriate next steps.
As of the date of this Supplement, the Board of Directors knows of no matters other than those described in the Proxy Statement. If any other matters properly come before the Annual Meeting, or any adjournments thereof, the persons named in the accompanying form of proxy intend to vote the proxies in accordance with their best judgment.
By Order of the Board of Directors,
|Chief Executive Officer|
