Pfizer Inc. (“Pfizer”) is a global pharmaceutical company that discovers, develops, manufactures and markets prescription medicines for humans and animals. Pfizer is incorporated in Delaware and is headquartered in New York. Its securities are registered with the Commission under Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act, and its common stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “PFE.”

In its November 5, 2004 10-Q report, Pfizer disclosed that it had voluntarily provided the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission with information regarding an internal investigation that the company was conducting of certain potentially improper payments made in connection with foreign sales activities in Croatia. The company later expanded this disclosure to include foreign sales activities in "certain countries."

Pfizer resolved these matters with the SEC and the DOJ in August 2012.
