Important considerations

Accessing your International Business Machines Corporation annual meeting materials (annual report, notice of annual meeting and proxy statement, and proxy/voting instruction card) online requires that you have access to the Internet, which may result in charges to you from your Internet Service Provider and/or telephone companies.

Your consent will be effective for accessing all future International Business Machines Corporation annual meeting materials, and will continue in effect if your e-mail address is current or until it is cancelled by you.

By consenting to electronic delivery and for as long as your consent remains effective, you are agreeing to receive your International Business Machines Corporation annual report, notice of annual meeting and proxy statement, and proxy/voting instruction card online and you waive the delivery of a printed notice of International Business Machines Corporation annual meeting. You are also agreeing that the online notice of the annual meeting is equivalent to the printed delivery of written notice of the meeting. You may always revoke your consent or specifically request that a copy of these materials be mailed to you.
