serves or has served since the beginning of fiscal 2013 as a member of the board of directors or the compensation
committee of a company at which a member of EA's Compensation Committee is an employee or officer.
SECTION 16(a) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE
Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, requires EA's directors and executive
officers, and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of EA's equity securities, to file reports of
ownership and changes in ownership of common stock and other equity securities of EA. We have adopted
procedures to assist EA's directors and officers in complying with these requirements, which include assisting
officers and directors in preparing forms for filing.
One late Form 4 filing was made on behalf of our Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen regarding the grant of
RSUs made to him upon the commencement of his employment with the Company. The delay in filing was the
result of a Company administrative error. Mr. Jorgensen's new hire grant of RSUs was previously disclosed on
Form 8-K filed on July 31, 2012, which described the terms of Mr. Jorgensen's compensatory arrangements. One
late Form 4 filing was made on behalf of our Chief Accounting Officer Kenneth Barker regarding one sale
transaction of Company common stock. The delay in filing was the result of a Company administrative error.
With the exception of the above referenced late Form 4 filings, to EA's knowledge, based solely upon review of
such reports furnished to us and written representations that no other reports were required, we believe that
during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013, all Section 16(a) filing requirements applicable to our officers,
directors and greater-than-ten-percent stockholders were complied with on a timely basis.
STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS FOR 2014 ANNUAL MEETING
If you would like us to consider a proposal to be included in our 2014 proxy statement and proxy card, you must
deliver it to the Company's Corporate Secretary at our principal executive office no later than February 14, 2014.
Stockholders who otherwise wish to present a proposal at the 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders must deliver
written notice of the proposal to our Corporate Secretary at Electronic Arts Inc., 209 Redwood Shores Parkway,
Redwood City, CA 94065, no earlier than April 2, 2014 and no later than May 2, 2014 (provided, however, that if
the 2014 Annual Meeting is held earlier than July 1, 2014 or later than August 30, 2014, proposals must be
received no earlier than the close of business on the later of the 90
th
day prior to the 2014 Annual Meeting or the
10
th
day following the day on which public announcement of the 2014 Annual Meeting is first made). The
submission must include certain information concerning the stockholder and the proposal, as specified in the
Company's amended and restated bylaws. Our amended and restated bylaws are included as an exhibit to a
Current Report on Form 8-K we filed with the SEC on May 11, 2009, which you may access through the SEC's
electronic data system called EDGAR at www.sec.gov. You may also request a copy of our amended and restated
bylaws by contacting our Corporate Secretary at the address above.
HOUSEHOLDING OF PROXY MATERIALS
The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries (e.g., brokers) to satisfy the delivery
requirements for notices of internet availability of proxy materials, proxy statements and annual reports with
respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single notice, proxy statement and/
or annual report addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as "householding,"
potentially means extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings for companies.
A number of brokers with account holders who are EA stockholders will be "householding" our notices and
proxy materials. A single notice or set of proxy materials will be delivered to multiple stockholders sharing an
address unless contrary instructions have been received from the affected stockholders. Once you have received
notice from your broker that they will be "householding" communications to your address, "householding" will
continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent. If, at any time, you no longer wish to
participate in "householding" and would prefer to receive a separate notice or proxy materials, please notify your
broker, direct your written request to our Corporate Secretary at our principal executive office at 209 Redwood
Shores Parkway, Redwood City, CA 94065, or contact our Corporate Secretary at (650) 628-1500. Upon request,
we will promptly provide separate copies of our notice or proxy materials. Stockholders who currently receive
multiple copies of the notice or proxy materials at their address and would like to request "householding" of their
communications should contact their broker.
