Mr. William Steiner, 112 Abbottsford Gate, Piermont, NY 10968, beneficial owner of no less than 100 shares
of Allstate common stock as of December 6, 2016, intends to propose the following resolution at the
Proposal 7 – Lead Director Qualifications
Shareholders request that our Board adopt a rule that whenever possible our Lead Director have less
than 12-years tenure. A director with more than 12-years tenure is arguably not independent.
GMI Analyst said Judith Sprieser, our Lead Director, had long tenure of 17 years, which may compromise
her ability to act as an effective and independent counterbalance to the CEO/chair. Ms. Sprieser had
also been flagged for her service on a board that previously filed for bankruptcy. GMI said long-tenured
directors can often form relationships that may compromise their independence and therefore hinder
their ability to provide effective oversight. Independence in a Lead Director is especially important since
Mr. Wilson serves the dual roles of CEO and Chairman.
Please vote to enhance shareholder value:
