Welcome Valued Cisco Shareholders,

We are using the Internet as our primary means of furnishing proxy materials to shareholders. Consequently, most shareholders will not receive paper copies of our Proxy Statement and our Annual Report to Shareholders.

We will instead send these shareholders a Notice of Internet Availability with instructions for accessing the proxy materials and voting via the Internet. The notice also provides information on how shareholders may obtain paper copies of our proxy materials if they so choose.

Date and Location of 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders

December 11, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time*
Cisco Systems, Inc.
Building 9
260 East Tasman Drive
San Jose, California 95134

*Note: Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time on the date of the annual meeting. If you do not comply with the procedures outlined below and on page 71 of our Proxy Statement, you may not be admitted to the annual meeting. We recommend that you arrive early to ensure that you are seated by the commencement of the annual meeting.

A map to this location appears on the last page of Cisco's Proxy Statement linked below.

Admission to Meeting

If you are a shareholder of record, you may be asked to present valid picture identification, such as a driver's license or passport, for admission to the annual meeting.

If your shares are registered in the name of a bank, brokerage firm or other holder of record (your record holder), you may be asked to provide proof of beneficial ownership as of the record date (October 13, 2017), such as a brokerage account statement, a copy of the Notice of Internet Availability or voting instruction form provided by your bank, broker or other holder of record, or other similar evidence of ownership, as well as picture identification, for admission.

About the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials

The Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials instructs shareholders how to access and review the information contained in the proxy materials and how to vote via the Internet, by mail or in person. The Notice contains:

  • A notice of the Annual Meeting of Shareholders;
  • A brief description of the items to be voted on at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders and the recommendation of Cisco's Board of Directors with regard to each item;
  • The address of the website where the proxy materials are available and instructions on how to view them;
  • Instructions on how to request paper or email copies of the proxy materials; and
  • Instructions on how to vote over the Internet, how to access instructions on voting by telephone, or how to vote in person at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

Importantly, the Notice of Internet Availability will contain a 16-digit control number that recipients will need to access the proxy materials, to request paper or email copies of the proxy materials, and to vote their shares via the Internet or by telephone. For this reason, we suggest retaining the Notice through the date of the annual meeting.

The Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials is first being mailed to shareholders on or about October 25, 2017.
