Stockholder Proposals or Director Nominations for the 2018 Annual Meeting

Proposals that stockholders would like to include in Allstate’s proxy materials for presentation at the 2018 annual meeting of stockholders must be received by the Office of the Secretary by December 13, 2017, and must otherwise comply with Securities and Exchange Commission rules in order to be eligible for inclusion in the proxy material for the 2018 annual meeting.

If a stockholder would like to bring a matter before the meeting which is not the subject of a proposal that meets the Securities and Exchange Commission proxy rule requirements for inclusion in the proxy statement, the stockholder must follow procedures in Allstate’s bylaws in order to personally present the proposal at the meeting.

One of the procedural requirements in the bylaws is timely notice in writing of the business the stockholder proposes to bring before the meeting. Notice of business proposed to be brought before the 2018 annual meeting must be received by the Office of the Secretary no earlier than the close of business on January 25, 2018, and no later than the close of business on February 26, 2018. Among other things, the notice must describe the business proposed to be brought before the meeting, the reasons for conducting the business at the meeting, and any material interest of the stockholder in the business.

A stockholder also may directly nominate someone for election as a director at a stockholders’ meeting. Under our bylaws, a stockholder may nominate a candidate at the 2018 annual meeting by providing advance notice to Allstate to the Office of the Secretary that is received no earlier than the close of business on January 25, 2018, and no later than the close of business on February 26, 2018. For proxy access nominees to be considered at the 2018 annual meeting, the nomination notice must be received by the Office of the Secretary no earlier than the close of business on November 13, 2017 and no later than the close of business on December 13, 2017. Among other things, the notice must include the information and documents described in Section 20 of the company’s bylaws.

A copy of the procedures and requirements related to the above matters is available upon request from the Office of the Secretary or can be found on Allstate’s website, allstateinvestors.com. The notices required above must be sent to the Office of the Secretary, The Allstate Corporation, 2775 Sanders Road, Suite F7, Northbrook, Illinois 60062-6127.
