Global Employee Data Set

To derive our global employee data set, we employed the following methodology and assumptions:

Data Source: We used our global human resource system of record to aggregate employee information from our various systems worldwide.

Determination Date: We selected Friday, June 29, 2018, which falls within the last three months of our most recently completed fiscal year, as the determination date for identifying our median employee.

Excluded Employees: As permitted by the 5% de minimus provision of the Regulation, we excluded all employees from each of the following countries:

Consistently Applied Compensation Measure & Selection of Median Employee

To determine our median compensated employee, we used a Consistently Applied Compensation Measure (CACM). As our CACM, we used Annual Base Compensation, defined as base salary rate taking into account the employee's full-time or part-time status and the employee's scheduled hours of employment, plus any guaranteed 13th month period pay, as of the Determination Date. We exchanged non-U.S. compensation to US dollars applying the same fixed annual exchange rate used in our filed periodic reports.

The SEC's rules for identifying the median compensated employee and calculating the pay ratio based on that employee's annual total compensation allow companies to adopt a variety of methodologies, to apply certain exclusions, and to make reasonable estimates and assumptions that reflect their employee populations and compensation practices. As a result, the pay ratio reported by other companies may not be comparable to the pay ratio reported above, as other companies have different employee populations and compensation practices and may utilize different methodologies, exclusions, estimates and assumptions in calculating their own pay ratios.
