Comparison of one-, five- and ten-year cumulative total return for IBM, S&P 500 Stock Index and S&P Information Technology Index

The following graphs compare the one-, five- and ten-year cumulative total returns for IBM common stock with the comparable cumulative return of certain Standard & Poor’s (S&P) indices. Due to the fact that IBM is a company included in the S&P 500 Stock Index, the SEC’s proxy rules require the use of that index for the required five-year graph. Under those rules, the second index used for comparison may be a published industry or line-of-business index.

The S&P Information Technology Index is such an index. IBM is also included in this index.

Each graph assumes $100 invested on December 31 (of the initial year shown in the graph) in IBM common stock and $100 invested on the same date in each of the S&P indices. The comparisons assume that all dividends are reinvested.
