Letter from our CEO and Chair
Dear Fellow Shareholders,
I am extremely proud to share that ADI deftly navigated 2022’s turbulence to deliver record-breaking financial results once again. Our outstanding growth and profitability this year are an extension of the long-term market success we have achieved through an unyielding commitment to innovation, operational excellence, and our customers’ success. We continued investing in 2022 in the R&D, manufacturing capabilities, and partnerships that deepen our value to our customers and enable us to capture more of the emerging secular opportunities at the Intelligent Edge. As a result, we enter 2023 with strong momentum and believe we are as well-positioned for the future as we have ever been.
Fiscal 2022 Results and Strategic Progress
The combination of ADI’s unparalleled portfolio of high-performance analog, digital, and software solutions, world-class engineering and applications domain expertise, and customer-first mentality drove revenue and margins to new high-water marks in fiscal 2022. We delivered an exceptional $12 billion in revenue, operating cash flow of $4.5 billion, and free cash flow of $3.8 billion after investing a record $699 million in capital expenditures (CapEx). Further, we exceeded our commitment to return 100% of free cash flow, returning $4.6 billion through share repurchases and dividends.
We made tremendous progress integrating Maxim in 2022, surpassing our integration timeline goals and accelerating the pace at which we are securing the benefits of the acquisition. The combination of our organic R&D, complementary portfolios, and combined capabilities is enabling us to deliver everything from industry-leading components to sophisticated, software-defined platforms that solve higher-order challenges for our customers. We have simultaneously invested in our go-to-market capabilities to make it easier than ever before for our customers to access our components and solutions in the ways that make the most sense for their businesses and needs. Importantly, we are capturing the full, increasing value of our innovations.
Our CapEx investments have allowed us to further leverage the power of our internal/external hybrid manufacturing model to deliver solutions from 7 nanometers to 7 micrometers in a resilient and responsive supply chain. During a time of unprecedented supply constraints in our industry, we are proud that our foresight and efforts have further strengthened our customer relationships and created numerous new opportunities to grow our business.
ADI’s Vision 2030, which we launched at our Investor Day in April 2022, set more ambitious goals for growth and profitability, and we are well on the way to achieving them.
Vision 2030
Advances in pervasive sensing, AI-driven edge computing, and ubiquitous connectivity are coalescing in smarter and more connected systems in autonomous factories, cars, healthcare, and more. ADI’s investments over the past decade have built upon our foundation at the boundary between the physical and digital worlds to take maximum advantage of the emerging Intelligent Edge opportunity for our customers, large and small, across every market segment.
For example, we are delivering O-RAN-compliant radio units for superior 5G connectivity; wireless battery management systems that enable rapid battery configuration and extend the mileage and lifetimes of electric vehicle battery packs; vital sign monitoring solutions for clinical-grade healthcare outside of clinical settings; and factory automation solutions for next-generation, agile manufacturing environments important in emerging applications such as personalized medicine. Our Apollo software-defined, high-speed signal chain platform is enabling innumerable applications for our broad market customers and is the latest example of how we are accelerating our customers’ time to market by meeting them at their software application layer. By connecting humanity, addressing climate change, democratizing access to healthcare, and enabling a safer, more efficient future of manufacturing, we are living out our corporate purpose, and expanding the ESG ideal from risk management to market opportunity.
In closing, I thank our amazing employees, partners, and customers whose skill, creativity, and dedication during 2022 have set us up for another strong year of collaboration and growth. I also thank you, our shareholders, for your continued investment in and support of ADI on this journey. We look forward to capitalizing on our portfolio and people investments to capture the incredible Intelligent Edge opportunity and continue building an ADI franchise and brand synonymous with innovation, customer success, and superior shareholder return.

Environment, Social and Governance
Our Approach
At ADI, we have long held the belief that we can and should be a force for positive change in the world. We believe that our strategic growth over the past few years gives us the opportunity to take an even stronger leadership position in driving the changes that must take place to create a better society and a healthier planet. Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles are at the heart of everything we do, because it’s the morally right thing to do and ESG is smart business. The efforts we take across ADI to operate with integrity, preserve the environment, slow down and remediate climate change, and inject greater diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I), both within our leadership and workforce, are key to our long-term growth and profitability. We believe sustainability means delivering holistic solutions that make a positive, demonstrable impact on the world.

MARIYA TRICKETT
Chief People Officer
ADI’s talent strategy underscores our commitment to our employees. We believe that talent is our greatest asset and innovation thrives when people of different identities, cultures, backgrounds and experiences collaborate. We strive to ensure that all employees reach their ambitions, are critically focused on enhancing the infrastructure necessary to support employee engagement, accelerate growth and development, and promote equity among all employees.
Talent Priorities
We invest in our people so that we can develop the next generation of technology that betters our world. We care about our employees, offering competitive benefits and compensation, as well as fulfilling career opportunities. To this end, we continuously look for ways to evolve our programs and practices to enhance employee satisfaction.
Empower Innovation and Learning
Empowering our teams to innovate and learn across every level and function
Our pandemic-inspired ADI Ignite Network “innovates how we innovate” by engaging and gathering novel ideas from all employees.
Development teams across departments come together to deliver experiences that quicken onboarding, build managerial skills and ready employees for more complex roles. We prioritize on-the-job experiences as a way to build skills and drive learning.
Focus on Social Purpose
Fostering a workplace where the best minds can come together to engineer good
The Analog Devices Foundation is creating a more sustainable future through community grants, employee matching gifts for both direct donations and volunteer hours, and in-kind donations.
In collaboration with employees, we are addressing inequities in STEM education through partnership with an institution that is recognized as one of the HBCUs.
Drive Engagement through Employee Experience
Listening and responding to employee feedback
Throughout the year, we conduct employee surveys and listening activities to gain feedback and learn more about ADI’s strengths as a workplace and opportunities for improvement. This enables us to take action and provide employees the tools they need to grow and prosper.
Foster Inclusion and Promote Equal Opportunity
Taking a global approach to equity and inclusion
We are evolving our mission to include global dimensions of diversity. This means working with our Global Diversity Council and Working Group to understand what marginalization looks like in countries outside the United States so we can customize efforts to address underrepresentation.
We are committed to building leadership teams that reflect the diversity of our employees and the communities we serve. To support this ambition, we are tailoring development programs to meet the needs of our underrepresented populations.
Build the Workforce of the Future
Evolving our workforce skills to drive innovation and sustain a competitive advantage
Our engineering team members continue to run a Software Engineering Reskilling Program, specifically designed to address ADI’s evolving talent needs by expanding the skills of our technical workforce in the software domain.
We are committed to employee growth and development, as well as building high-performing teams. This includes providing essential training such as the Executive Leadership Program and Management Essentials curricula that prepare employees to lead teams today and grow the business tomorrow and offering programs including our Leading ADI Forward program designed to help our leaders build relationships and drive our strategic vision throughout the organization.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We are committed to cultivating an inclusive culture, implementing business practices that counteract systemic inequities and engaging with the communities around us to create a better, more just world. Through structural and cultural change, we aim to ensure that employees of all identities and cultures have an equal opportunity to grow and succeed at ADI.
Addressing Inequity Through a Holistic and Global Approach
ÑWe continue to transform the way we operate so inclusion and equity remain an integrated part of how we do business. This means redesigning our talent practices to address systemic barriers and building a culture that confronts bias.
ÑAt a high level, our focus is on programs that target societal and organizational practices. From a societal perspective, we are establishing new partnerships and launching programs that increase access to STEM education for communities that are historically denied access. From an organizational perspective, we are revising our processes to mitigate bias and customizing our training programs to accelerate the development of underrepresented communities.
Engaging and Empowering Employees
ÑWe have formed a Global Diversity Council that is made up of senior leaders from across our organization. Together, they represent a mix of business units, regions, genders and races. They meet quarterly to provide feedback on strategic priorities and help to champion organizational change.
ÑWe have a growing list of Employee Networks that are the driving force behind our evolving culture. Comprised of over 2,500 members across eight networks and thirty-five chapters, they foster community, build allyship, accelerate professional development and impact organizational policy. Each network has a formalized leadership team and structure, which includes an executive sponsor and annual goals.
Building Educational and Professional Partnerships
ÑWe continue to expand our outreach and support higher education, including engagement with an HBCU which includes sponsoring a research project enabling students dedicated time to explore and innovate.
ÑIn addition, we continue our outreach to professional associations that serve underrepresented communities. We host educational talks and focus on skill building as a way to increase candidate capabilities and foster greater brand and STEM awareness.
Enhancing and Supporting Diversity
ÑWe recognize that employees of different identities encounter different systemic and cultural challenges. Understanding these unique experiences allows us to create impactful learning programs that build community, drive performance and advance gender and racial equity.
ÑOne example is Elevate, our flagship leadership development series for women. Employees in this program build new skills and expand their global networks through an exciting combination of action learning, mentorship and sponsorship. The program places an emphasis on enhancing business insight, increasing customer focus, developing strategic mindsets and improving situational adaptability. The program cohorts were thoughtfully assembled to include representation from technical, sales and corporate functions across Asia, Europe and North America.
Ensuring Governance and Oversight
ÑThe Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee oversees ADI’s ESG policies, goals and programs, including reviewing our sustainability initiatives and goals, as well as our progress towards achieving those goals. Management regularly reports to our full Board of Directors on ESG topics, providing an update on key metrics and progress. Our Board of Directors provides direct feedback on strategic approach and initiatives once a year. Our Leadership Team, which includes our executive officers and any Senior Vice President reporting to the CEO, is engaged collectively on a semi-annual basis, and individual leaders provide ongoing sponsorship of core initiatives, such as our HBCU partnership and secondary school outreach program.

Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has recommended, and our Board of Directors has determined, to nominate all other members of our Board of Directors for re-election at the Annual Meeting.

Overview of CEO and Named Executive Officer Pay
Executive pay at ADI is strongly aligned with long-term company performance, with a significant portion of compensation delivered in long-term equity-based awards. The target pay mix shown below is based on target compensation consisting of the annual rate of base salary and short-term and long-term incentive targets approved by the Compensation and Talent Committee.

Stock Performance Graph
Fiscal year 2022 compensation actions for our executive officers, including our NEOs, are supported by solid corporate performance and strong shareholder returns. The following graph compares cumulative total shareholder return on our common stock since October 28, 2017 with the cumulative total return of the Standard & Poor’s (S&P) 500 Index and the Nasdaq Composite Index.

Proxy Summary


Historical Say-on-Pay Votes
Our pay programs have a history of strong shareholder support, however, we saw a decrease in our say-on-pay support during fiscal year 2022.
https://cdn.kscope.io/c538877e692f99a02b0ea8ab35bb30fb-pg16_barchartsayonpay.jpg
Our Compensation and Talent Committee carefully considers the results of our “say-on-pay” votes. We believe that the results of the 2022 say-on-pay advisory vote was primarily due to a one-time award granted to our CEO and Chair as discussed in our 2022 Proxy Statement under the heading CEO Performance Stock Option Award. During our engagement meetings with shareholders during 2022, many shareholders indicated that they understood the rationale behind the special one-time award and were generally pleased with the overall design and framework of our executive compensation program. Considering the 2022 say-on-pay vote and the feedback we received from our shareholders, the Compensation and Talent Committee determined to not make significant changes to our executive compensation program as a result of the 2022 say-on-pay vote, however, the Compensation and Talent Committee confirms that it does not intend to make future special awards to our CEO and Chair outside of our ongoing annual incentive programs while the current grant remains outstanding.
For additional information about the feedback we received from shareholders and the actions we took in response, please see the Shareholder Engagement section beginning on page 38 of this Proxy Statement.
Please see the Compensation Discussion and Analysis section beginning on page 49 of this Proxy Statement for a more detailed description of our executive compensation program, philosophy and design.

Election Process
All members of our Board of Directors are elected annually by our shareholders and currently consists of thirteen directors, of whom ten are deemed to be “independent directors” as defined and in accordance with the Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. Marketplace Rules, or Nasdaq Rules. On June 24, 2022, our Board of Directors increased the size of our Board of Directors to thirteen members and elected Mr. Andonian as an independent director, effective June 27, 2022. On January 17, 2023, each of Messrs. Doluca and Evans informed our Board of Directors of their intent to retire from our Board of Directors and not stand for re-election. Consequently, each of Messrs. Doluca and Evans’ term as a director will expire at the Annual Meeting on March 8, 2023. Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee recommended, and our Board of Directors has determined, to nominate all other current directors for reelection in 2023. As such, at the Annual Meeting, our shareholders will have an opportunity to vote for each of the eleven nominees listed above. If the current nominees are elected, we will have eleven members serving on our Board of Directors, of whom nine are deemed to be “independent directors” in accordance with Nasdaq Rules, and the number of directors composing our Board of Directors will be reduced to eleven. The persons named in the proxy card, upon receipt of a properly executed proxy, will vote for each of these nominees, unless you instruct them to vote otherwise on the proxy card (whether executed by you or through Internet or telephonic voting). Each of the director nominees has indicated his or her willingness to serve, if elected. However, if any or all of the director nominees should be unable or unwilling to serve, the proxies may be voted for a substitute nominee designated by our Board of Directors or our Board of Directors may reduce the number of directors.

Our Board of Directors and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee consider the following factors, among others, when selecting director nominees:

Directors identify as female, or 36%
While our Board of Directors does not have a specific diversity policy, our Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that gender, racial, and ethnic diversity, consistent with the requirement for relevant and diverse experience, skills, and industry familiarity, are important search criteria. Effective application of these criteria is reflected in the diverse composition of our Board of Directors.

Directors are Independent, or 82%
Under Nasdaq Rules, a majority of the members of our Board of Directors must be independent directors. To be considered independent, a director must be independent as determined under applicable Nasdaq Rules, and in our Board of Directors’ judgment, the director must not have a relationship with ADI that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.

Board of Directors


Determination of Independence
Under applicable Nasdaq Rules, a director of ADI will only qualify as an “independent director” if, in the opinion of our Board of Directors, that person does not have a relationship which would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. Our Board of Directors has established guidelines (within our Corporate Governance Guidelines) to assist it in determining whether a director has a relationship with ADI that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. These guidelines are posted on our website under https://investor.analog.com/governance/governance-documents. For relationships not covered by the guidelines, the determination of whether such a relationship exists is made by the members of our Board of Directors who are independent directors (as defined above). Our Board of Directors has determined that none of Messrs. Andonian, Champy, Evans(1) and Sicchitano, Mses. Golz and Johnson, and Drs. Chandrakasan, Frank, Glimcher, and Wee has a relationship which would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director and that each of these directors is an “independent director” as defined under Rule 5605(a)(2) of the Nasdaq Rules. Our Board of Directors has determined that Mr. Roche, our CEO and Chair, and Mr. Stata, our co-founder and former Chair, are not “independent” under the Nasdaq Rules because Mr. Roche is a current employee and Mr. Stata is our founder. Our Board of Directors also determined that Mr. Doluca(1) is not “independent” under the Nasdaq Rules given his prior role as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Maxim and the fact that integration efforts between Maxim and ADI are still ongoing. Our Board of Directors also determined that Dr. Mark Little, a former director, was an “independent director” prior to his retirement from our Board of Directors on March 9, 2022. Our Board of Directors considered our annual laboratory membership and sponsorship of university research projects with MIT, of which Dr. Chandrakasan is the Dean of the School of Engineering and Mr. Champy is a board member. Even though Dr. Chandrakasan is a senior leader at MIT, our Board of Directors determined that this donation does not impair his independence due to the lack of any benefit to him from the donation other than general benefits pertaining to any other academics of the school. Our Board of Directors also considered Ms. Golz’s former affiliation with Ernst & Young and Mr. Andonian’s former and current affiliation with McKinsey & Company, and determined that those relationships would not interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.
(1)Messrs. Doluca and Evans are not standing for re-election and their terms on the Board of Directors will end at the Annual Meeting on March 8, 2023.
2023 Proxy Statement

Director Candidates
Recommendation
In considering whether to recommend any candidate for inclusion in the Board of Directors’ slate of recommended director nominees, including candidates recommended by shareholders, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will apply the criteria set forth in our Corporate Governance Guidelines. These criteria include the candidate’s integrity, business acumen, experience, commitment, and diligence; the presence of any conflicts of interest; and the ability of the candidate to act in the interests of all shareholders.
Diversity
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee seeks nominees with a broad diversity of experience, professions, skills, geographic representation and backgrounds. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee does not assign specific weights to particular criteria and no particular criterion is necessarily applicable to all prospective nominees. ADI believes that the backgrounds and qualifications of the directors, considered as a group, should provide a significant composite mix of experience, knowledge and abilities that will allow our Board of Directors to fulfill its responsibilities. While we do not have a policy regarding diversity of our Board members, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee includes gender, racial and ethnic diversity as part of its search criteria, consistent with the requirement for relevant and diverse experience, skills and industry familiarity. Effective application of these criteria is reflected in the diverse composition of our Board of Directors.
Evaluation
The process followed by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee to identify and evaluate candidates includes requests to members of our Board of Directors and others for recommendations, meetings from time to time to evaluate biographical information and background material relating to potential candidates and interviews of selected candidates by members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Board of Directors. From time to time, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may also seek input from director search firms for identification and evaluation of candidates. Assuming that appropriate biographical and background material is provided for candidates recommended by shareholders on a timely basis, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will evaluate director candidates recommended by shareholders by following substantially the same process, and applying substantially the same criteria, as it follows for director candidates submitted by members of our Board of Directors. Mr. Andonian was introduced by a director and, with the recommendation of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, was elected to our Board of Directors effective June 27, 2022 and is included in the slate of director nominees nominated by the Board of Directors for election as a director at the Annual Meeting.
Shareholder Recommendations and Nominations of Director Candidates
Shareholders of record of ADI may recommend director candidates for inclusion by our Board of Directors in the slate of nominees that the Board of Directors recommends to our shareholders for election. The qualifications of recommended candidates will be reviewed by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. If our Board of Directors determines to nominate a shareholder-recommended candidate and recommends his or her election as a director by the shareholders, the name will be included in ADI’s proxy card for the shareholders’ meeting at which his or her election is recommended.
Shareholders may recommend individuals for the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee to consider as potential director candidates by submitting their name and background and a statement as to whether the shareholder or group of shareholders making the recommendation has beneficially owned more than 5% of ADI’s common stock for at least one year as of the date the recommendation is made, to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, c/o Janene Asgeirsson, Secretary, Analog Devices, Inc., One Analog Way, Wilmington, Massachusetts 01887. Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will consider a recommendation only if appropriate biographical information and background material is provided on a timely basis.
Shareholders also have the right to directly nominate director candidates, without any action or recommendation on the part of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee or the Board of Directors, by following the procedures set forth in our amended and restated bylaws and described in the response to the question “How and when may I submit a shareholder proposal, including a shareholder nomination for director, for the 2024 annual meeting of shareholders?” below.

Board of Directors


Corporate Governance
Board Policies and Practices
We periodically review our corporate governance policies and practices and compare them to those suggested by various authorities in corporate governance and the practices of other public companies.
We have long believed that good corporate governance is important to ensure that ADI is managed for the long-term benefit of our shareholders. As a result, we have adopted the following policies and procedures that we believe are in the best interests of ADI and our shareholders:
Policy/Practice
Summary
Corporate Governance Guidelines
Our Board of Directors has adopted Corporate Governance Guidelines for ADI that establish a common set of expectations to assist our Board of Directors and its committees in performing their duties. Our Board of Directors reviews these guidelines at least annually, and updates them as necessary to reflect changing regulatory requirements and evolving practices.
Declassified Board of Directors
We have a declassified Board of Directors and our bylaws provide that each director will serve for a term ending on the date of the annual meeting following the one at which such director was elected.
Majority Voting for Election of Directors
Our bylaws provide for a majority voting standard in uncontested director elections, so a director nominee is elected to our Board of Directors if the votes “for” that director exceed the votes “against” (with abstentions and broker non-votes not counted as for or against the election). If a director nominee does not receive more for votes than against votes, the director must offer his or her resignation, which our Board of Directors must determine whether to accept and publicly disclose that determination.
Executive Sessions
At least twice per year, our Board of Directors holds executive sessions with our independent, non-employee directors, as defined under the Nasdaq Rules. Our Presiding Director, Mr. Champy, presides at these independent director executive sessions. In addition, the committees of our Board of Directors also regularly hold executive sessions without management present and with their advisors.
No Hedging and No Pledging Policy
We prohibit all hedging transactions or short sales involving ADI securities by our directors and employees, including our executive officers. Since January 2013, we have prohibited our directors and executive officers from holding any ADI securities in a margin account, and from any future pledging of their ADI securities as collateral for a loan.
Equity Award Grant Date Policy
We do not time or select the grant dates of any stock options or stock-based awards in coordination with our release of material non-public information, nor do we have any program, plan or practice to do so. In addition, our Compensation and Talent Committee has adopted specific written policies regarding the grant dates of equity awards made to our directors, executive officers and employees. See Director Compensation and Equity Award Grant Date Policy below for more information.
Executive Stock Ownership Guidelines
Under our guidelines, the target stock ownership levels are five times annual base salary for the CEO and three times annual base salary for other executive officers and any Senior Vice President reporting to the CEO, which we collectively refer to as, the Leadership Team. The CEO has four years from the date of his appointment as CEO to achieve his targeted level. Members of the Leadership Team other than the CEO have five years from the date he or she becomes part of the Leadership Team to achieve their targeted level. Shares subject to unexercised options, whether or not vested, and unvested performance-based RSUs whose performance have not yet been certified by the Compensation and Talent Committee will not be counted for purposes of satisfying these guidelines. RSUs and restricted stock (whether or not vested) and unvested performance-based RSUs whose performance has been certified by the Compensation and Talent Committee are counted for purposes of satisfying these guidelines. All members of the Leadership Team, other than Ms. Asgeirsson, who first joined ADI in fiscal year 2021, were in compliance with our stock ownership guidelines as of the end of fiscal year 2022. Ms. Asgeirsson is expected to be in compliance with our stock ownership guidelines within the first five years of her appointment to the Leadership Team.
Clawback Policy
Our clawback policy provides that in the event of a material restatement of our financial results, the Compensation and Talent Committee may, as appropriate, seek to recover from our CEO and other named executive officers whose fraud or willful misconduct caused or partially caused such restatement, all or a portion of the performance-based compensation awarded to such named executive officer that was in excess of the amount that would have been awarded based on the restated financial results. We will amend our compensation clawback policy so that it is compliant with the regulations mandated under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act when corresponding listing standards become effective.

Policy/PracticeSummary
Adoption of Proxy Access Right
Our Board of Directors approved a bylaw amendment implementing proxy access, which allows shareholders that meet standard eligibility requirements to nominate and include in our Proxy Statement director candidates for election.
Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
We have a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, which details our commitment to conducting business ethically, in compliance with the law, and in a way that reflects our deeper values. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics details our commitment to safeguarding personal data, explains our whistleblower reporting process, and is designed to be consistent with best practices. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics provides transparency on our enhanced whistleblower process. Specifically, we affirm our commitment to a consistent and transparent review process, prompt and thorough investigations, assignment of neutral investigators, communication about investigation outcomes, and implementation of appropriate corrective actions.
Code of Corporate Social Responsibility
Our Code of Corporate Social Responsibility details ADI’s policies for itself and its suppliers in the areas of labor and human rights, health and safety, environment, ethics, management systems and data privacy.
Director Education
We encourage our directors to attend director education programs and provide educational opportunities to our directors through a variety of platforms. We reimburse the costs of attending such programs. We also provide members of our Board of Directors a membership to the National Association of Corporate Directors. Further, we include educational topics regularly at our scheduled Board of Directors’ meetings. During such sessions, an outside party presents on a topic that is relevant to our business and strategic objectives, and of interest to our Board of Directors.

Board and Committee Structure
Board Leadership Structure
Our Board of Directors is responsible for broad corporate policy and overall performance of ADI through oversight of management. Among other duties, our Board of Directors appoints ADI’s executive officers, assigns to them responsibility for management of our operations, and reviews their performance. Our Board of Directors regularly reviews our Board leadership structure and it is recognized that the combination or separation of the CEO and Chair roles are driven by the needs of ADI at a particular time. Since March 2022, Mr. Roche has been serving as the CEO and Chair. The Board of Directors determined that having Mr. Roche serve in this combined role strengthens his ability to provide leadership as ADI continues to transition in response to customer demand for more complete solutions. Mr. Champy has served as our independent Presiding Director since 2010.

Board Committees
Our Board of Directors has standing Audit, Compensation and Talent, Nominating and Corporate Governance, and Corporate Development Committees. With the exception of the Corporate Development Committee, of which Mr. Roche is Chair, the members of all three other committees are comprised of independent, non-employee directors. Each committee has a charter that has been approved by the Board of Directors and is reviewed annually. In addition, each committee conducts an annual self-evaluation of its own performance and the performance of its members in accordance with its respective committee charter. Each director also undertakes an evaluation of our Board of Directors more generally. Our Presiding Director, working with our Chief Legal Officer, also has conversations with each director designed to assess the competencies and skills each director brings to our Board of Directors. Summaries of the evaluations are presented to the Board of Directors. Mr. Roche is the only current director who is, or has been in the past three years, an employee of ADI. Mr. Stata does not serve on any standing committee and Messrs. Roche and Stata do not participate in the portion of any Board or committee meeting during which their compensation is evaluated or in sessions comprised solely of independent directors.

Meetings in 2022: 9
PRINCIPAL RESPONSIBILITIES
The primary purpose of the Audit Committee is to assist our Board of Directors’ oversight of:
ÑThe integrity of our financial statements, including regulatory requirements to the extent they pertain to financial matters;
ÑThe qualifications and independence of our independent registered public accounting firm;
ÑThe performance of our internal audit function and independent registered public accounting firm;
ÑThe process relating to internal enterprise risk management, control systems, and review of related person transactions;
ÑEvaluating capital allocation and structure, including potential issuance of debt and equity securities, credit agreements, letters of credit, guarantees and other financial instruments, investment policy, dividends, stock splits and stock repurchases;
ÑEvaluating our significant financial exposures and liabilities; and
ÑReviewing our financial outlook and plans for financing our working and long-term capital requirements.
Our Board of Directors has determined that each of Mses. Golz and Johnson and Mr. Evans qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, each is independent as defined under the Nasdaq Rules and the independence requirements under Rule 10A-3(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or Exchange Act. In addition, our Board of Directors has determined that each member of the Audit Committee is able to read and understand financial statements, including ADI’s consolidated balance sheet and its consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, shareholders’ equity and cash flows and related notes as required under the Nasdaq Rules. Our Board of Directors has certified that it has at least one member of the Audit Committee who has past employment experience in finance or accounting as required by the Nasdaq Rules.
The responsibilities of our Audit Committee and its activities during fiscal year 2022 are described in the Report of the Audit Committee below.
(1)Mr. Evans is not standing for re-election and his term on the Board of Directors will end at the Annual Meeting on March 8, 2023.
Our Audit Committee charter provides that no member of the Audit Committee may serve on the audit committee of more than two other public companies in addition to ADI, unless approved by the Board of Directors. Ms. Johnson, who first joined our Board of Directors in August 2021, is a member of our Audit Committee and is also a member of the audit committees of three other public companies, serving as the audit committee chair for two of those public companies. Our Audit Committee considered Ms. Johnson’s additional board and audit committee service and whether or not such service created an actual or potential conflict with her service on our Board of Directors and Audit Committee. Having determined that no such conflict existed, our Audit Committee recommended that our Board of Directors approve, and our Board of Directors did approve, Ms. Johnson’s service on up to four public company boards, inclusive of ADI’s Board of Directors. Neither Ms. Golz nor Mr. Evans serve on the audit committees of more than two other public companies in addition to ADI.
The Audit Committee has the authority to engage independent legal, accounting and other advisors that it deems necessary or appropriate to carry out its responsibilities. These independent advisors may be the regular advisors to ADI. The Audit Committee is empowered to pre-approve all audit services to be provided to ADI and all other services to be provided to ADI by our independent auditor. The Audit Committee has delegated authority to the Chair of the Audit Committee to pre-approve any audit or non-audit services to be provided to ADI by the independent registered public accounting firm for which the cost is less than $100,000. The Audit Committee selected and appointed Ernst & Young LLP, our independent registered public accounting firm, and did not retain any other advisors during fiscal year 2022.

In accordance with the terms of our Amended and Restated 1996 Stock Incentive Plan (which we refer to as the 1996 Plan and which we assumed in the Maxim acquisition), and our 2020 Equity Incentive Plan, which we refer to as the 2020 Plan, the Compensation and Talent Committee has delegated to a standing committee composed of our CEO, Chief Financial Officer, Chief People Officer and Chief Legal Officer the power to grant options, RSUs and other stock awards to employees who are not (i) executive officers, (ii) other senior vice presidents who report to the CEO or (iii) directors, subject to specified thresholds, parameters and applicable law. The same standing committee also has the ability to accelerate outstanding awards under the 1996 Plan, the 2020 Plan, our Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Incentive Plan, which we refer to as the 2006 Plan, and our Amended and Restated 2010 Equity Incentive Plan, which we refer to as the 2010 Plan (which we assumed when we acquired Linear Technology Corporation) granted to employees who are not (i) executive officers, (ii) other senior vice presidents who report to the CEO or (iii) directors, subject to specified thresholds, parameters and applicable law.

In December 2022, the Compensation and Talent Committee amended its charter to further expand its role to include oversight for ADI’s enterprise-level strategies and programs relating to human capital management and diversity. ADI’s approach to human capital management is wide-reaching and encompasses many facets of our business including those with respect to diversity, equity and inclusion, talent recruitment and development, retention, employee engagement, pay equity practices, workplace health and safety and cultural initiatives. Further, in December 2022, the Compensation Committee changed its name to the Compensation and Talent Committee to reflect its expanded role.

Oversight by Our Board
Strategic Oversight
The Board of Directors reviews our overall performance, and its primary responsibility is to oversee the management of ADI and, in doing so, serve the best interests of ADI and its shareholders. The Board of Directors provides for the succession of the CEO, nominates for election at annual shareholder meetings individuals to serve as directors of ADI, and elects individuals to fill any vacancies on the Board of Directors. Our Board of Directors reviews corporate objectives and strategies, and evaluates and approves significant policies and proposed major commitments of corporate resources. It oversees ADI’s risk management programs and participates in decisions that have a potential major economic impact on ADI. Management keeps the directors informed through regular written reports and presentations at Board of Directors’ and committee meetings.
Risk Oversight

Enterprise Risk Management is a company-wide initiative that involves ADI management, including our Chief Legal Officer and Chief Risk Officer and our internal audit function, including our Senior Director, Internal Audit, working together to (1) identify, assess, prioritize and monitor a broad range of risks and (2) formulate and execute plans to monitor and, to the extent possible, mitigate the effect of those risks.
Cybersecurity Oversight
In order to minimize the likelihood and impact of a cybersecurity incident, we have deployed cybersecurity protections to protect ADI’s networks, devices and data from external and internal threats. These protections are consistent with global data privacy requirements.
Four of our director nominees have cybersecurity expertise to assist the Board of Directors in its oversight of ADI’s information security program. ADI leadership and Internal Audit regularly provide the Audit Committee with updates on the performance of our cyber and information security program. Our Chief Information Officer provides quarterly updates to the Audit Committee covering key information technology (IT) projects, enterprise cybersecurity programs and data protection risks and mitigation related to such risks. At least annually, our Chief Information Officer updates the full Board of Directors on information security matters and risk, including cybersecurity.
During fiscal year 2022, we created a management-led cross-functional steering committee, led by our Chief Information Security Officer, that is charged with security governance and key mitigation initiatives. Any relevant findings of this committee are shared in quarterly reports to the Audit Committee and annual reports to the Board of Directors.
ESG Oversight
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee oversees ADI’s ESG policies, goals and programs, including reviewing our sustainability initiatives and goals, as well as our progress towards achieving those goals. Management regularly reports to the full Board of Directors on ESG topics, providing an update on key metrics and progress. Our Board of Directors provides direct feedback on strategic approach and initiatives once a year. Our Leadership Team is engaged collectively on a semi-annual basis and individual leaders provide ongoing sponsorship of core initiatives, such as our partnership with an HBCU and secondary school outreach program.
Our CEO, our Leadership Team and appointed roles dedicated to ESG lead our ESG agenda. Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has specific oversight responsibility for ADI’s ESG programs, initiatives, policies and goals, including reviewing our sustainability initiatives and goals as well as our progress toward achieving those goals.
Our Board of Directors is fully engaged and receives regular updates from senior management about our ESG programs, including updates on our sustainability as a business initiative, and on emerging issues. These ESG topics also include educational components to keep our Board of Directors abreast of the quickly changing ESG regulatory environment, as well as other evolving practices, risk oversight, mitigation strategies and other relevant ESG topics.
Created in 2021, our ESG Executive Council comprised of in-house subject matter experts, such as Human Resources, Environment, Health and Safety, and Compliance and Ethics, meets regularly and provides updates to the ESG Oversight Committee. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee receives quarterly reports on our progress against stated targets, as well as updates on topics such as stakeholder value, risks and opportunities, regulatory preparedness, ESG ratings and key ESG focus areas.

Human Capital Management Oversight
In December 2022, our Compensation and Talent Committee expanded its responsibilities to include oversight for ADI’s enterprise-level strategies and programs relating to human capital management and diversity. ADI’s approach to human capital management is wide-reaching and encompasses many facets of our business, including those with respect to diversity, equity and inclusion, talent recruitment and development, retention, employee engagement, pay equity practices, workplace health and safety and cultural initiatives. Our Chief People Officer provides regular updates to our Compensation and Talent Committee and the Board of Directors regarding human capital initiatives, risks and mitigation efforts related to identified risks.
Succession Planning
As reflected in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, one of our Board of Directors’ primary responsibilities includes reviewing Leadership Team succession plans. The Board of Directors is responsible for evaluating potential successors to the CEO and, based on recommendations from the CEO, other members of the Leadership Team.
The Compensation and Talent Committee periodically reviews our strategies and programs related to succession planning and talent development, which includes transitional leadership planning in the event of an unplanned vacancy for any Leadership Team role.
Succession planning is discussed regularly in Board of Directors and/or Compensation and Talent Committee executive sessions. The Compensation and Talent Committee is also updated regularly throughout the year on key talent indicators for the overall workforce.
Shareholder Engagement
We conduct extensive investor outreach throughout the year involving our senior management, investor relations, legal and human resources departments. This helps management and our Board of Directors understand and focus on the issues that matter most to our shareholders, so ADI can address them effectively.
Since our inception as a public company, we have maintained an active engagement program with our shareholders, meeting with them extensively throughout the year as part of our investor outreach efforts.

Corporate Governance


We reviewed the key takeaways from these meetings with our shareholders with our Board of Directors, with the goal of continuing to evolve our corporate governance practices to best meet the needs of ADI and our shareholders. While some of the feedback received has led to enhancements to our practices and disclosure, we also received positive feedback regarding certain practices that reconfirmed that our programs continue to be effective from our shareholders’ perspective. For example:
WHAT WE HEARDWHAT WE DID

Shareholders were generally pleased with the overall design and framework of our executive compensation program
ÑThe Compensation and Talent Committee did not significantly revise the design of our executive compensation program for fiscal year 2022, other than as noted under Notable Compensation Decisions for Fiscal Year 2022, and does not plan to significantly revise the program in fiscal year 2023 based on the feedback received
Special One-Time Award to CEO
While some shareholders expressed a concern with the granting of a one-time special award during fiscal year 2021 to our CEO, most shareholders understood the rationale behind the special one-time award and appreciated the disclosure in our 2022 Proxy Statement
ÑThe Compensation and Talent Committee confirms that it does not intend to make future special awards to our CEO and Chair outside of our ongoing annual incentive program while the current grant remains outstanding
CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Communications from Shareholders and Other Interested Parties
The Board of Directors will give appropriate attention to written communications on issues that are submitted by shareholders and other interested parties, and will respond if and as appropriate. Absent unusual circumstances or as contemplated by committee charters, the Chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will, with the assistance of ADI’s internal legal counsel, (1) be primarily responsible for monitoring communications from shareholders and other interested parties and (2) provide copies or summaries of such communications to the other directors as he or she considers appropriate.
Communications will be forwarded to all directors if they relate to substantive matters and include suggestions or comments that the Chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee considers to be important for the directors to review. In general, communications relating to corporate governance and long-term corporate strategy are more likely to be forwarded than communications relating to personal grievances, commercial solicitations and matters as to which ADI tends to receive repetitive or duplicative communications.
Shareholders and other interested parties who wish to send communications on any topic to our Board of Directors (including the Presiding Director or the independent directors as a group) should address such communications to James A. Champy, Presiding Director, c/o Secretary, Analog Devices, Inc., One Analog Way, Wilmington, Massachusetts 01887.

Certain Relationships and Related Transactions
Transactions with Related Persons
There were no related-person transactions that would require disclosure under Item 404 of Regulation S-K under the Exchange Act since the beginning of fiscal year 2022 through the date of this Proxy Statement.
Policies and Procedures for Related Person Transactions
Our Board of Directors has adopted written policies and procedures for the review of any transaction, arrangement or relationship in which ADI is a participant, the amount involved exceeds $120,000, and one of our executive officers, directors, director nominees or 5% shareholders (or their immediate family members), each of whom we refer to as a related person, has a direct or indirect material interest.
If a related person proposes to enter into such a transaction, arrangement or relationship, which we refer to as a related person transaction, the related person must report the proposed related person transaction to our Chief Legal Officer. The policy calls for the proposed related person transaction to be reviewed and, if deemed appropriate, approved by the Audit Committee. Whenever practicable, the reporting, review and approval will occur prior to entry into the transaction. If our Chief Legal Officer determines that advance review and approval is not practicable, the Audit Committee will review, and, in its discretion, may ratify the related person transaction at the next meeting of the Audit Committee. The policy also permits the Chair of the Audit Committee to review and, if deemed appropriate, approve proposed related person transactions that arise between committee meetings, subject to ratification by the Audit Committee at its next meeting. Any related person transactions that are ongoing in nature will be reviewed annually.
A related person transaction reviewed under the policy will be considered approved or ratified if it is authorized by the Audit Committee after full disclosure of the related person’s interest in the transaction. As appropriate for the circumstances, the Audit Committee will review and consider:
ÑThe related person’s interest in the related person transaction;
ÑThe approximate dollar value of the amount involved in the related person transaction;
ÑThe approximate dollar value of the amount of the related person’s interest in the transaction without regard to the amount of any profit or loss;
ÑWhether the transaction was undertaken in the ordinary course of our business;
ÑWhether the terms of the transaction are no less favorable to us than the terms that could have been reached with an unrelated third party;
ÑThe purpose of, and the potential benefits to us of, the transaction; and
ÑAny other information regarding the related person transaction or the related person in the context of the proposed transaction that would be material to investors in light of the circumstances of the particular transaction.
The Audit Committee may approve or ratify the related person transaction only if the Audit Committee determines that, under all of the circumstances, the transaction is in ADI’s best interests. The Audit Committee may, in its sole discretion, impose any conditions on ADI or the related person in connection with the approval of the related person transaction.
In addition to the transactions that are excluded by the instructions to the SEC’s related person transaction disclosure rule, our Board of Directors has determined that the following transactions do not create a material direct or indirect interest on behalf of related persons and, therefore, are not related person transactions for purposes of this policy:
ÑInterests arising solely from the related person’s position as an executive officer of another entity (whether or not the person is also a director of that entity), that is a participant in a transaction, where (a) the related person and all other related persons own in the aggregate less than a 10% equity interest in the entity, (b) the related person and his or her immediate family members are not involved in the negotiation of the terms of the transaction and do not receive any special benefits as a result of the transaction, and (c) the amount involved in the transaction equals less than the greater of $200,000 or 5% of the annual gross revenues of the company receiving payment under the transaction; or
ÑThe transactions that are specifically contemplated by provisions of ADI’s charter or bylaws.
The policy provides that the related person transactions involving compensation of executive officers shall be reviewed and approved by the Compensation and Talent Committee in the manner specified in its charter.

Director Compensation
Our non-employee director compensation program is designed to attract and retain experienced and knowledgeable directors and to provide equity-based compensation to align the interests of our directors with those of our shareholders. Each non-employee director receives an annual cash retainer and an annual equity award in the form of RSUs. To reflect their additional responsibilities, the Chairs and members of all committees receive an additional cash retainer. The Presiding Director also receives an additional cash retainer. Mr. Roche, as an employee director, does not receive any additional compensation for his services as director, as Chair of the Board of Directors, or as Chair of the Corporate Development Committee.
Our Board of Directors has delegated to the Compensation and Talent Committee the responsibility to review and recommend to the Board of Directors any proposed changes to non-employee director compensation. Annually, the Compensation and Talent Committee reviews with Pearl Meyer, the Compensation and Talent Committee’s independent compensation consultant, non-employee director compensation information for our peer group to check the alignment of our non-employee director compensation package with market practice and current trends. The Compensation and Talent Committee then makes recommendations to the full Board of Directors with respect to compensation of our non-employee directors, and the full Board of Directors reviews these recommendations and makes a final determination. In fiscal year 2022, we (i) increased the annual retainer for each member of the Board of Directors from $80,000 to $90,000, (ii) increased the Presiding Director Retainer from $25,000 to $40,000, and (iii) increased the value of the annual equity award from an equivalent of $210,000 to an equivalent of $225,000. In fiscal year 2022, we granted 100% of the value of the annual equity award to each of our non-employee directors in the form of time-based RSUs. These RSUs vest in full on the earlier of the first anniversary of the date of grant or the date of ADI’s next annual meeting of shareholders. On March 9, 2022, we granted each non-employee director 1,495 RSUs for services to be provided from that date until the earlier of the first anniversary of the date of the grant or ADI’s next annual meeting of shareholders. On July 15, 2022, Mr. Andonian, who joined our Board of Directors in June 2022, was granted 1,015 RSUs for services to be provided from the date of his initial election as a director through the Annual Meeting.

Executive Compensation
PROPOSAL 2
Advisory Approval of the Compensation of ADI’s Named Executive Officers
We are requesting shareholder approval of the compensation of the executive officers named in our Summary Compensation Table below, who we refer to as our NEOs. We are required to provide our shareholders with the opportunity to vote to approve, on an advisory (non-binding) basis, the compensation of our NEOs as disclosed in this Proxy Statement in accordance with the SEC’s rules. At the 2017 annual meeting of shareholders, our shareholders voted in favor of holding future “say-on-pay” votes every year. In accordance with the results of that vote, our Board of Directors determined to submit “say-on-pay” proposals to our shareholders every year until the next vote on the preferred frequency of advisory votes on the compensation of our NEOs, which will occur at the Annual Meeting and is the subject of the non-binding advisory vote in Proposal 3.
Our Board of Directors is asking shareholders to approve the following non-binding advisory vote:
VOTED, that the compensation paid to the company’s NEOs, as disclosed pursuant to Item 402 of Regulation S-K, including the Compensation Discussion and Analysis, compensation tables and accompanying narrative disclosures in this Proxy Statement, is hereby approved.
As required by the Dodd-Frank Act, this is an advisory vote, which means that this proposal is not binding on us. Our Compensation and Talent Committee, however, values the opinions expressed by our shareholders and will carefully consider the outcome of the vote when making future compensation decisions for our NEOs. You may vote for, against or abstain from voting on this matter. At our 2022 annual meeting of shareholders, our compensation program for our NEOs received the support of 77.3% of the total votes cast. In light of the support received and additional feedback received from our shareholders, our Compensation and Talent Committee did not make significant changes to our executive compensation program.
As described in detail in the Compensation Discussion and Analysis section of this Proxy Statement, ADI’s executive compensation program is significantly performance-based and designed to attract, retain and motivate strong executives to lead our complex, global organization and to align their interests with those of our shareholders. We seek to provide total compensation to our executive officers, including our NEOs, that is competitive with our peers, and we believe that our executive compensation program is designed to encourage the most talented individuals to grow their careers at ADI.
ADI has a longstanding philosophy and practice of paying executives for performance. In order to align our pay practices with shareholder interests, we tie a significant percentage of each executive’s compensation to ADI’s performance, in the form of executive performance incentive plan payments, and equity awards that are subject to performance vesting and rise in value only if our stock price increases. In fiscal year 2022 we delivered record financial results for both revenue and operating profit. As a result aggregate payments under our executive performance incentive plan were made at 293% of target in fiscal year 2022, compared to 253% in fiscal year 2021 and 77% in fiscal year 2020.
We believe that our executive compensation program is working as intended and appropriately aligns executive pay with company performance and shareholder value creation.
Our Board of Directors unanimously recommends that you vote FOR approval of the compensation of our Named Executive Officers as disclosed in this Proxy Statement.

Executive Summary
Fiscal Year 2022 Performance and Key Pay Decisions
Fiscal year 2022 was an important year for ADI. We delivered record financial results against a backdrop of challenging conditions, including an uncertain and slowing macroeconomic environment. In fiscal year 2022, we delivered sequential revenue growth every quarter, leading to all-time high annual revenue of $12 billion and industry-leading gross and operating margins. Importantly, we made progress positioning ADI for continued long-term success through deepening our customer engagements, continuing to invest in our business to drive innovation, extracting value from recent acquisitions and capitalizing on secular trends to drive addressable markets and diversified growth. We also demonstrated our commitment to deliver strong shareholder returns during fiscal year 2022, returning approximately $4.6 billion to our shareholders in the form of dividends and share buybacks. ADI’s total shareholder return over its last three fiscal years, ending October 29, 2022, was 40%, which is ~1.2x the S&P 500 return of 34% over that same time period.

Welcoming New Leaders
As we announced in January 2022, our Board of Directors appointed Mr. Roche, ADI’s CEO, as Chair of the Board of Directors effective March 9, 2022. Mr. Roche has earned the respect and confidence of our employees, our customers and the investment community — as well as our Board of Directors. The appointment of Mr. Roche as Chair of our Board of Directors ensures continuity and alignment of focus between the Board’s oversight and management’s direction of ADI’s vision, strategy, people and culture, and operational execution.
Also, during fiscal year 2022, we strengthened our Leadership Team with the appointment of two new key leaders to critical roles. Gregory Bryant, a proven global business leader with three decades of experience and a track record of driving growth, joined ADI in March 2022 as Executive Vice President and President of Business Units. In this role, Mr. Bryant is responsible for growing the business and ensuring close alignment between
ADI’s long-term strategic goals and the evolving technology trends, market needs and customer priorities. Also, in May 2022, Mariya Trickett joined as our Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer. In this role, Ms. Trickett is responsible for driving best practices across all aspects of human resources by leading all of our human resources and talent functions, including employee engagement, talent acquisition, talent management, learning and development, total rewards, succession planning and organizational development. Both Mr. Bryant and Ms. Trickett bring fresh perspectives to our Leadership Team.
Notable Compensation Changes for Fiscal Year 2022
Departure from Stock Options
Beginning with fiscal year 2022, the Compensation and Talent Committee determined that ADI would no longer grant stock options. The elimination of stock options is intended to simplify our long-term incentive program and to shift more of the equity mix to performance-based equity awards. With the elimination of stock options, the equity mix for executive officers beginning with fiscal year 2022 is 65% PRSUs and 35% RSUs, increasing from 50% PRSUs and 25% RSUs in fiscal year 2021.

https://cdn.kscope.io/c538877e692f99a02b0ea8ab35bb30fb-pg15_piechartstockopts2022.jpg
Change in Comparator Group for Relative TSR PRSUs
For the TSR PRSUs granted to our NEOs in fiscal year 2022, the relative TSR comparator group changed from the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index (SOX Index) to the S&P 500 Index. The Compensation and Talent Committee made this change for several reasons. First, the Compensation and Talent Committee believed there are meaningful differences between ADI and other companies in the SOX Index based on our products, customers and end-markets to make the comparison to this index less relevant. Second, the SOX Index contains a small peer group, which was continually shifting due to consolidation over the three-year performance period making the comparison less practical. Finally, the Compensation and Talent Committee believes that the S&P 500 Index better represents ADI’s customers and end-markets, and provides a more relevant benchmark for ADI performance and shareholder value creation. For additional information on our Relative TSR PRSUs, including the payout percentages, please see Equity Vehicle Structure beginning on page 61.

Executive Compensation


Compensation Philosophy and Objectives
Our business is based on innovation and helping our customers solve some of the world’s most complex problems. As a knowledge-based business, we believe that the skills, expertise, and experience of our employees, including our NEOs, are unique and critical factors in our overall success. The competition for talent in the technology sector is fierce. To drive continued successful operational and financial performance, we must attract, motivate, reward, and retain top executive talent. Accordingly, our executive compensation program is designed to:
ÑCreate alignment between executive and shareholder interests
ÑPay for performance by ensuring incentives are tied to multiple business performance metrics
ÑProvide market competitive compensation to attract and retain top executive talent
Pay for Performance
A significant portion of the total target compensation for our executive officers, including our NEOs, is in the form of variable, performance-based incentive compensation, with only a small portion of the total target compensation provided in the form of “fixed” compensation. We believe this provides our executive officers an opportunity to earn above average compensation, as compared to our peer group companies, if we deliver stronger results. Conversely, if we deliver weaker results, our executive officers will earn less compensation. The target pay mix for our NEOs for fiscal year 2022 is shown below:

Executive Compensation


Process for Determining Compensation
Roles and Responsibilities
As part of its annual review of our executive compensation program, including NEO compensation, our Compensation and Talent Committee solicits the input of Mr. Roche and their independent compensation consultant, Pearl Meyer and Partners. Pearl Meyer reports directly to our Compensation and Talent Committee. The roles of our Compensation and Talent Committee, Pearl Meyer and management in setting our fiscal year 2022 executive compensation program are summarized below.
Role of the Compensation Consultant
ÑIn June 2021, Pearl Meyer and management recommended a peer group of companies for the purpose of assessing our executive compensation program, which was approved by the Compensation and Talent Committee.

Role of Management
ÑManagement then gathered data from these companies, which was considered by Pearl Meyer in its analysis of Mr. Roche’s compensation. Further, Mr. Roche considered this information, in addition to data from the Radford Global Technology Survey, in his recommendations on our other executive officers’ compensation.
Role of the Compensation and Talent Committee
ÑThe Compensation and Talent Committee considered Pearl Meyer’s advice, Mr. Roche’s recommendations for those executive officers reporting to him, and management’s proposed fiscal year 2022 performance goals prior to making its final and sole decision on all fiscal year 2022 executive compensation. At the Compensation and Talent Committee’s direction, Pearl Meyer provided a risk analysis of our executive compensation program. Finally, the Compensation and Talent Committee also certified performance-based compensation payouts for the applicable periods ended fiscal year 2022.
Compensation and Talent Committee Consultants
The Compensation and Talent Committee has the authority, in its sole discretion, to retain or obtain the advice of any independent legal, accounting or other advisors it deems necessary or appropriate to carry out its responsibilities. The Compensation and Talent Committee is empowered, without further action by the Board of Directors, to cause ADI to pay the compensation of these advisors as established by the Compensation and Talent Committee. The Compensation and Talent Committee continued to use Pearl Meyer as its independent compensation consultant for fiscal year 2022 because of Pearl Meyer’s experience working with our Compensation and Talent Committee and with compensation committees at other technology companies.
As part of its annual process, the Compensation and Talent Committee considered the independence factors that are identified in the Nasdaq Rules when selecting and retaining its advisors. Specifically, with respect to Pearl Meyer, when our Compensation and Talent Committee appointed Pearl Meyer for fiscal year 2022, it analyzed whether Pearl Meyer’s role raised any conflicts of interest by considering the following factors: (i) Pearl Meyer does not provide any services directly to ADI (although we pay Pearl Meyer on the Compensation and Talent Committee’s behalf), (ii) the percentage of Pearl Meyer’s total revenue resulting from fees paid by us on the Compensation and Talent Committee’s behalf, (iii) Pearl Meyer’s conflict of interest policies and procedures, (iv) any business or personal relationship between Pearl Meyer and an executive officer, or between Pearl Meyer’s individual compensation advisors and an executive officer or any member of our Compensation and Talent Committee, and (v) any ADI stock owned by Pearl Meyer or its individual compensation advisors. After considering these factors, the Compensation and Talent Committee determined that Pearl Meyer’s work did not create any conflicts of interest.
Pearl Meyer reports directly to the Compensation and Talent Committee and assists the Compensation and Talent Committee in evaluating and designing our executive and director compensation program and policies. In connection with its work for the Compensation and Talent Committee, Pearl Meyer is invited to attend the Compensation and Talent Committee’s meetings and, upon request of the Compensation and Talent Committee, attends executive sessions of the Compensation and Talent Committee. For fiscal year 2022, Pearl Meyer assisted the Compensation and Talent Committee with matters, including:
ÑDefining a peer group of companies;
ÑReviewing and validating the appropriateness of executive incentive plan goals;
ÑProviding market data and advice regarding executive and director compensation plan design, design of the executive performance incentive plan and equity incentive mix and design;
ÑConducting a detailed analysis of the competitiveness and appropriateness of ADI’s total executive compensation opportunity and total director compensation opportunity in comparison to our defined peer group;
ÑConducting a risk assessment of our executive compensation program; and
ÑAdvising on regulatory changes and their potential impact on our executive compensation programs along with any other aspects of our compensation programs.

Market Compensation Data
The Compensation and Talent Committee has sought to select peer group companies that are publicly traded, are headquartered in the United States, compete with us for talent, and are similar to ADI in their product and services offerings, business model, revenue size and market capitalization.
As a result of rapid consolidation in the semiconductor industry over the last several years, in addition to companies that meet the criteria outlined above, the peer group also includes companies outside of the semiconductor industry. These additional companies are similar in size and have similar gross margins and research and development expenditures as ADI, include peers of peers and peers of other companies in our sector, and often compete with ADI for talent. Further, at the time the fiscal year 2022 peer group was selected, ADI was in the process of acquiring Maxim. Accordingly, the Compensation and Talent Committee considered the expected transaction when determining peer companies for fiscal year 2022. Based on review and consultation with Pearl Meyer, for fiscal year 2022, the Compensation and Talent Committee added Intel Corporation, Micron Technology, Inc., NXP Semiconductors N.V. and QUALCOMM Incorporated based on the companies’ industry-relevance, operating profile, and business comparison to ADI. The Compensation and Talent Committee determined to remove Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., NetApp, Inc. and Xilinx, Inc. due to acquisitions of the companies or because they no longer met our peer group criteria.
In fiscal year 2022, the peer group companies used by the Compensation and Talent Committee to evaluate executive compensation consisted of the following companies:
Additions: +2022 Peer Group
Intel Corporation
Micron Technology, Inc.
NXP Semiconductors N.V.
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
Agilent Technologies, Inc.
Applied Materials, Inc.

NVIDIA Corporation
NXP Semiconductors N.V.
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Skyworks Solutions, Inc.
Texas Instruments Incorporated
Removals: -
Maxim Integrated Products, Inc.
NetApp, Inc.
Xilinx, Inc.
For executive officers in positions for which the fiscal year 2022 peer group companies do not publicly disclose compensation data, the Compensation and Talent Committee reviewed data collected from Radford’s Global Technology Survey. This survey depicts executive compensation levels across a wide spectrum of technology sector companies comparable to ADI in annual revenue and market capitalization.

Risk Considerations in Our Compensation Program
In fiscal year 2022, our Compensation and Talent Committee reviewed our incentive compensation programs, discussed the concept of risk as it relates to our compensation program, considered various mitigating factors and reviewed these items with its independent consultant, Pearl Meyer. In addition, our Compensation and Talent Committee asked Pearl Meyer to conduct an independent risk assessment of our executive compensation program. Based on these reviews and discussions, the Compensation and Talent Committee does not believe that any risks arising from our employee compensation policies and practices are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on ADI. Our Compensation and Talent Committee believes that any such risks are mitigated by the following factors, among others:
https://cdn.kscope.io/c538877e692f99a02b0ea8ab35bb30fb-pg52_iconvariablecomp.jpg
Pay Mix /Structure
We structure our pay to consist of both fixed and variable compensation with short- and long-term horizons. We believe that the variable elements of compensation, which represented 94% and 91% of the total target compensation for our CEO and other NEOs, respectively, excluding new-hire equity awards, for fiscal year 2022, are a sufficient percentage of overall compensation to motivate executives to produce superior short- and long-term corporate results and to achieve company goals, while the fixed element is also sufficiently high that the executives are not encouraged to take unnecessary or excessive risks in doing so.

Metrics
We believe that our focus on both OPBT margin and year-over-year revenue growth through our executive performance incentive plan, and non-GAAP operating profit and stock price performance through our equity compensation program, provides a check on excessive short-term risk taking. That is, even if our executives could inappropriately increase OPBT margin or revenue by excessively reducing expenses or adding new revenue sources that are inconsistent with our business model, this could ultimately harm our stock price and the value of their equity awards. Conversely, if our executives were to add revenue sources at low margins in order to generate a higher growth multiple and increased stock prices, it could decrease OPBT margin and the value of their cash bonus payments. Our OPBT margin and year-over-year revenue growth targets are applicable to our executives and employees alike, which we believe encourages consistent behavior across the organization, and reflects goals that are challenging, but not so high that they require performance outside of what the Compensation and Talent Committee believes is reasonable for us or could motivate our executives and employees to take actions in which we assume unreasonable levels of risk.

Driving Profitability
We cap our bonus payout factors. Even if we dramatically exceed our OPBT margin or year-over-year revenue growth targets, bonus payments are limited. In fiscal year 2022, the bonus payment factor cap was 300% of target. Conversely, we also have a floor on the OPBT margin target so that profitability at or below a certain level will result in no bonus payments for that performance period, regardless of revenue growth levels. We believe this avoids incentivizing management to drive revenue levels without regard to profitability.

Stock Ownership Guidelines
Our stock ownership guidelines provide an incentive for management to consider ADI’s long-term interests because a portion of their personal investment portfolio consists of ADI stock.
Consideration of 2022 Say-on-Pay Vote
Our pay programs have a history of strong shareholder support, however, we saw a decrease in our say-on-pay support during fiscal year 2022.

2023 Proxy Statement

Our Compensation and Talent Committee carefully considers the results of our “say-on-pay” votes. We believe that the results of the 2022 say-on-pay advisory vote was primarily due to a one-time award granted to our CEO and Chair as discussed in our 2022 Proxy Statement under the heading CEO Performance Stock Option Award. During fiscal year 2022, as part of our annual outreach program, we reached out to our top 20 shareholders and additional shareholders that voted against say-on-pay in 2022, collectively representing nearly 50% of our total shares outstanding, with an invitation to have discussions with their corporate governance teams. Shareholders representing approximately 30% of our outstanding shares accepted our engagement invitation. During these engagement meetings with shareholders during 2022, many shareholders indicated that they understood the rationale behind the special one-time award and were generally pleased with the overall design and framework of our executive compensation program. Considering the 2022 say-on-pay vote and the feedback we received from our shareholders, the Compensation and Talent Committee determined to not make significant changes to our executive compensation program as a result of the 2022 say-on-pay vote, however, the Compensation and Talent Committee confirms that it does not intend to make future special awards to our CEO and Chair outside of our ongoing annual incentive programs while the current grant remains outstanding.

Determining Fiscal Year 2022 Target Compensation Levels
Our executive compensation program is designed to attract and retain top executive talent and align the interests of our executive officers, including our NEOs, and shareholders. The level of compensation for our executive officers is determined through the following steps:

First, we ensure our executive compensation is competitive and attracts and retains top executive talent by understanding how the total target compensation (consisting of base salary, variable cash incentive target, and annual long-term incentive compensation) of each of our executive officers compares to the total target compensation of those in similar positions within our peer group.
We then consider a variety of factorsincluding the scope of the role, tenure in the position, and the performance and experience of the individual when deciding how to position each executive officer’s total target compensation to the total target compensation of those in similar positions within our peer group.
We structure our compensation package to align our executive officers’ interests with those of our shareholders by tying a significant portion of their total compensation directly to ADI’s short- and long-term performance. For executive officers, this is measured by OPBT, OPBT margin, year-over-year revenue growth, absolute stock price appreciation, and relative TSR, which all drive shareholder value.

Factors Considered in Determining Fiscal Year 2022 Target Compensation Levels
Chief Executive Officer Pay Determination. Mr. Roche has served as our President since 2012, was appointed CEO and elected as a director in May 2013, and was elected as Chair of the Board of Directors in March 2022. Under his leadership, ADI has experienced significant growth and transformation, including successfully completing the acquisition of Maxim in 2021. In determining Mr. Roche’s compensation as CEO and Chair for fiscal year 2022, the Compensation and Talent Committee considered all elements of Mr. Roche’s compensation and compared his total target compensation to the median chief executive officer compensation of our peer group companies. The Compensation and Talent Committee also considered Mr. Roche’s experience, tenure, and performance developing and executing ADI’s strategy and driving long-term shareholder value. The design of Mr. Roche’s fiscal year 2022 compensation provided incentives that linked realized compensation with ADI’s performance.
Pay Determination for Other Executive Officers: In determining fiscal year 2022 compensation for our NEOs, other than Mr. Bryant, including base salary levels, annual incentive plan payout targets, and fiscal year 2022 equity grants, the Compensation and Talent Committee considered the executive’s individual responsibilities and other factors including their performance, experience, tenure, and market data and benchmark information from our peer group companies.
Mr. Bryant joined ADI in March 2022. In determining Mr. Bryant’s new-hire compensation package, the Compensation and Talent Committee, in consultation with Pearl Meyer, considered benchmark information from our peer group companies as well as the responsibilities that Mr. Bryant would have upon joining ADI. For Mr. Bryant’s new-hire equity awards, the Compensation and Talent Committee considered market practices for such awards, the amount of equity that Mr. Bryant was forfeiting as a result of leaving his former employer and the importance of retaining an individual of the caliber and with the experience and skills that Mr. Bryant would bring to ADI. Accordingly, the Compensation and Talent Committee set Mr. Bryant’s annual salary at $750,000 and his annual incentive bonus target at 150% of his base salary. Further, on March 15, 2022, the Compensation and Talent Committee granted Mr. Bryant (1) a time-based RSU award with a target grant value of $5 million, which vests in equal annual installments over a four-year period; (2) a time-based RSU award with a target grant value of $5 million, which vests in full on the third anniversary of the grant date; and (3) a PRSU award with a target grant value of $14 million, which vests subject to the attainment of target share price thresholds during a four-year performance period following the grant date. For more information about Mr. Bryant’s new-hire equity awards see the Equity Vehicle Structure - New-Hire Equity Awards section below in this Compensation Discussion and Analysis.

Base Salary
We use salaries for similar positions within our peer group companies as an important factor in setting the base salaries of our executive officers at a level designed to attract and retain talent. When setting the fiscal year 2022 base salary for each individual executive officer, the Compensation and Talent Committee also considered other factors, including the scope of the role and the performance and experience of the individual.
Executive Performance Incentive Plan
The Compensation and Talent Committee approved the terms of our executive performance incentive plan for the first half of fiscal year 2022 on September 8, 2021, and for the second half of fiscal year 2022 on April 4, 2022. The plans are designed to be variable, depending on ADI’s operating results.
All executive officers, including our NEOs, participated in our fiscal year 2022 executive performance incentive plan.
We calculated and paid bonuses under the plans as follows:

Individual Target Bonus Percentage
For fiscal year 2022, the Compensation and Talent Committee set target percentages of 200% of base salary for our CEO and ranging from 125% to 150% for each of our NEOs other than our CEO, as part of our fiscal year 2022 compensation cycle. The Compensation and Talent Committee selected these target bonus percentages to ensure that a substantial portion of each executive officer’s cash compensation is performance-based and linked directly to our business performance, and to ensure that total compensation is competitive with those in similar positions within our peer group companies. Setting our CEO’s target at 200% also ties the majority of his cash compensation directly to company performance.

Executive Compensation


Bonus Payout Factor
For fiscal year 2022, we based the bonus payout factor for the applicable quarterly bonus period on our OPBT margin and year-over-year revenue growth compared to the same quarter in the prior year. While our executive performance incentive plan contains quarterly performance targets, the Compensation and Talent Committee designed this plan to drive long-term performance. The targets are directly linked to our long-term corporate strategy of profitable growth, which drives shareholder value. We believe this combination ensures that we encourage a long-term focus on our business objectives, while measuring and rewarding progress against those objectives on a quarterly basis.
The Compensation and Talent Committee reviews and approves our performance targets, and historically these targets have not been re-set during the performance period, regardless of company performance or economic conditions. We believe that this approach fosters accountability for our business results and is in keeping with our core belief that variable compensation expense, which increases when our performance is good and contracts when it is poor, gives us maximum flexibility to operate our business. While the OPBT margin and year-over-year revenue growth targets are typically set annually, we measure performance against those targets on a quarterly basis, applying the corresponding bonus payout factor to base salary for that quarter, and pay the bonus amounts to our executive officers on a semi-annual basis following the end of the second and fourth fiscal quarters.
In setting performance targets for our executive performance incentive plan, multiple factors are considered including our actual past business results, estimates of multi-year performance from our long-term strategic planning, and the performance of market competitors. The Compensation and Talent Committee strives to set challenging growth targets that will remain in place for more than one year and are aligned with our long-term strategy. As part of our continued integration of ADI and Maxim compensation programs, at the beginning of the second half of fiscal 2022, we transitioned legacy ADI and Maxim employees onto a common bonus plan. To facilitate this transition, the Compensation and Talent Committee determined the first half of fiscal year 2022 OPBT margin and year-over-year revenue growth targets for the executive performance incentive plan would remain the same as fiscal year 2021 representing legacy ADI quarterly performance targets, which were consistent with the company’s long-term strategy at the time. Accordingly, the financial results for Maxim were also excluded when determining the bonus payout factors for the first and second quarters of fiscal 2022. For the second half of fiscal year 2022, the Compensation and Talent Committee increased both the OPBT margin and revenue growth targets to set new challenging targets to align with the updated financial profile and business strategy of the combined company and to incentivize employees to achieve industry-leading profit margins and long-term growth.
The Compensation and Talent Committee implemented the following targets for the executive performance incentive plan for the first half of fiscal year 2022 and second half of fiscal year 2022:
