Letter from our Chair and CEO
To our Cummins Shareholders:
As I reflect back on 2023, I am incredibly proud of what Cummins and our employees accomplished for our stakeholders, and I feel energized about the opportunities ahead for us as we continue to demonstrate our relentless focus on being a global leader in clean energy technology and innovation.
Power makes progress: Celebrating a banner year for Cummins
Last year, we made significant progress in achieving our Destination Zero strategy, and it continues to be clear that our dual-path approach to reducing the greenhouse gas and air quality impacts of our products is the right approach to meet our customers’ needs today and continue to grow our business and impact. We did this by advancing our core business as well as developing new, zero-emissions solutions through Accelera by CumminsTM.
Achieved key advances in our core business. In 2023, we committed to investing more than $1 billion across our U.S. engine manufacturing network to support the industry’s first fuel agnostic engine platforms, and we unveiled the X10 fuel agnostic series, launching in North America in 2026. Additionally, we initiated several collaborations with our natural gas X15 engine (X15N), the industry’s first natural gas engine designed specifically for heavy-duty and on-highway truck applications, offering OEMs and end-users the opportunity to realize reductions in nitrous oxides and greenhouse gas without compromising performance. A similar 15-liter natural gas platform has been in use globally in markets like China since 2022, with close to 30,000 production units and more than 2 billion real world miles accumulated to date. The X15N is now available for purchase in North America.
Paved the way through Accelera. In March we launched a unique brand, Accelera by Cummins, for our business focused on zero-emissions solutions. In September, we announced a joint venture with Daimler Trucks and Buses, PACCAR and EVE Energy to accelerate and localize battery cell production and the battery supply chain in the U.S. And in January, we announced the selection of Marshall County, Mississippi, for the 21-gigawatt hour factory, which is expected to begin producing battery cells in 2027 and create more than 2,000 U.S. manufacturing jobs by 2030. Accelera also reached a further milestone in 2023 with electrolyzer order backlog totaling more than 500MW. To meet the growing electrolyzer demand, we began production at our first U.S. manufacturing location for electrolyzers in our Cummins Power Generation facility in Fridley, Minnesota.
Delivered record operational performance. Due to our employees’ hard work and the continued high demand for our products globally, we achieved record 2023 full-year revenues of $34.1 billion, 21 percent higher than 2022, and record operating cash flow of $4.0 billion, a significant increase from $2.0 billion achieved in 2022. Additionally, last year marked the 14th consecutive year that we increased our shareholder dividends, returning $921 million.
Demonstrated continued commitment to people, communities and the planet. Last year, we received several prestigious honors, recognizing our commitment to being a conscientious corporate citizen for all our stakeholders, both internally and in the communities we serve. We were featured on Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies list, S&P Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, and the S&P Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index. In addition, we received numerous accolades recognizing our ongoing efforts to foster caring and inclusive environments in which all employees and innovation thrive, including: named one of 66 companies on America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises in 2023; National Association of Corporate Directors 2023 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award; 2023 best place to work for disability inclusion; Military Friendly Employer; Top Hispanic Employer by DiversityComm magazine; Financial Times Diversity Leaders list in Europe; and a perfect score of 100 on the 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index. In 2023, we also achieved a global Every Employee Every Community (EEEC) – our program to enable each employee to use at least four work hours to engage in their communities – participation rate of 77% for the full year, surpassing our target of 75%. This represents nearly 60,000 Cummins employees across the world who volunteered 332,000 hours, organized 10,800 community events, and partnered with 3,300 nonprofits.
Power onward: Continuing our progress in 2024 and beyond
Our focus in 2024 is about continuous improvement and flawless execution that keeps us ahead of the competition and enables us to deliver innovative products that are better for our customers, our communities and our environment. No one is better positioned to do this than Cummins, and here’s how we’ll do it.
Delivering strong returns to you, our shareholders. We are committed to delivering cycle-over-cycle improvement in financial performance, and we are in a strong position to keep investing in the future, bringing new technologies to power our customers’ success around the world, and returning cash to our investors. Over the past two decades, our business has grown five-fold, from $6.6 billion in revenues in 2000 to a record $34.1 billion achieved last year – and we’re on pace to continue this trajectory this decade as we move closer to 2030. Though we anticipate moderating demand in some markets, we are taking steps to reduce costs, optimize our business and position Cummins for continued success in the years ahead.
Amplifying our presence as a global leader in the energy transition. We are resolute about the leading role we play in the energy transition, and emissions compliance continues to be a critical element of this work and central to our values. We were transparent about

TABLE OF CONTENTS
this in December 2023, when we announced that we reached an agreement in principle to resolve U.S. regulatory claims regarding our emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in our pickup truck applications.
We ultimately believe there will be a place for more efficient diesel, natural gas, and hydrogen internal combustion engines for many years in the commercial vehicle markets we serve. In February 2024, we branded our fuel-agnostic engine platforms with a name that captures the innovation that powers us forward: the Cummins HELM™ platforms. Loosely translating to “higher efficiency, lower emissions and multiple fuels,” the Cummins HELM™ platforms give our customers control of how they navigate their own journeys as part of the energy transition and include our B, X10 and X15 engine platforms. They provide customers with the option to choose the fuel type(s) and applications that best suit their business needs, while also reducing emissions. These products are critical to our plan to help fleets reach Destination Zero, while providing products that are economically viable, scalable and deliver the power, performance, range and durability for which Cummins is known.
We also announced in February 2024 the launch of our most efficient heavy-duty diesel engine ever. The Next Gen X15 will be compliant with U.S. EPA and CARB 2027 aligned regulations at launch and will serve the heavy-duty on-highway market in North America. Maintaining the traditional reliability and lower operating costs that have met the needs of a diverse customer base since the inaugural X15 launch in 1998, the Next Gen X15 will feature improved greenhouse gas and fuel efficiency benefits while retaining the same ratings of the current X15 (up to 605 horsepower and 2,050 lb-ft of torque) and optimizing powertrain integration with Eaton Cummins and Cummins-Meritor. More information on start of production for the Next Gen X15 will be available later this year.
The Cummins HELM™ B, X10 and X15 engine platforms, together with Accelera by Cummins’ zero-emission products, will help our customers with a variety of applications and requirements reduce emissions today and well into the future. Through Accelera’s new eMobility business, we will continue to position Cummins to win in the electrification and hydrogen markets by providing a wide range of battery electric vehicle products, including batteries, e-axles, traction systems, auxiliary controls and power, and electric powertrain integration. We’ll also further bolster our electrolyzer business – our most significant outgrowth opportunity – by scaling our industry-leading technical innovation to support the growing global green hydrogen economy.
Driving continuous, profitable growth through the power of partnership. In this globally connected world, “going it alone” is an outdated approach to developing critical solutions for critical issues. Fortunately, we have entered a new era of mutually beneficial collaboration where like-minded partners, and even competitors, realize the exponential power of coming together. At Cummins, we are proud of our 105-year history of leveraging our strong partnerships and power as an incumbent to accelerate future growth through innovation – not only with leading OEMs and customers around the globe, but also through strategic partnerships and joint ventures. By pursuing unique relationships with key players like Daimler Trucks & Buses, PACCAR, EVE Energy, Leclanché S.A., Tata Motors, Terex, Knight Transportation, Blue Bird, Chevron, the Eclipse Foundation, and other compelling prospective partners – we are uniquely positioned to lead in the transition to zero emissions.
Investing in our people, communities and planet. Making people’s lives better by powering a more prosperous world requires a healthier planet and vibrant, engaged communities. This work is our mission in action. It’s what we’ve always done, and what we will continue to do. In 2024, we will continue to build on these commitments by setting aggressive goals for ourselves in three core areas. First, we’ll invest to establish a diverse management team best equipped to continue leading in the transition to zero emissions while generating strong returns. We’ll also focus on advancing our talent strategies to meet the evolving needs of our employees and the business, while expanding our diversity, equity and inclusion aspirations. Second, we’ll continue to deliver a safe, healthy and more sustainable work environment for our employees. We’ll continue to demonstrate leadership for corporate responsibility within our global communities. Through Cummins Advocating for Racial Equity (CARE) – now focused on serving both our Black and Latino neighbors – we’ll continue our important work of enabling and empowering our employees, communities and businesses to create more equitable and inclusive environments through criminal justice reform, economic empowerment and social justice reform. And finally, we’ll continue to extend our efforts with Cummins Water Works to advance water security for 20 million people by 2025 – among several other initiatives.
Looking ahead, I am deeply appreciative of our Cummins employees, who continue to innovate for our customers and demonstrate the flexibility required to meet global demand. And I’m equally grateful to all of you – our shareholders – for your confidence in Cummins. Thank you for joining us in our journey to make people’s lives better by powering a more prosperous world.
Sincerely,
Jennifer Rumsey

PROXY STATEMENT FOR 2024
ANNUAL SHAREHOLDERS MEETING
Generally
We are furnishing this proxy statement in connection with the solicitation by our Board of Directors of proxies to be voted at our 2024 Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, and at any adjournment thereof, which we refer to as our “Annual Meeting.” This proxy statement, together with the enclosed proxy card, is first being made available to our shareholders on or about April 1, 2024.
Holders of our Common Stock of record at the close of business on March 21, 2024 are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. On that date there were issued and outstanding 136,758,679 shares of Common Stock, each of which is entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a shareholder vote at the Annual Meeting.
Each share of Common Stock represented by a properly executed and delivered proxy card will be voted at the Annual Meeting in accordance with the instructions indicated on that proxy card, unless such proxy card has been previously revoked. If no instructions are indicated on a signed proxy card, the shares represented by such proxy card will be voted as recommended by our Board.
A shareholder may revoke his or her proxy card at any time before the Annual Meeting by delivering to our Secretary written notice of such revocation. This notice must include the number of shares for which the proxy card had been given and the name of the shareholder of such shares as it appears on the stock certificate(s), or in book entry form on the records of our stock transfer agent and registrar, Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, Inc., evidencing ownership of such shares. In addition, except with respect to shares attributable to accounts held in the Cummins Retirement and Savings Plans (the “Cummins RSPs”), any shareholder who has executed a proxy card but is present virtually at the Annual Meeting will be entitled to cast his or her vote electronically instead of by proxy card, thereby canceling the previously executed proxy card.
Participants in the Cummins RSP who hold shares of Common Stock in their account and provide voting instructions to the trustee with respect to such shares will have their shares voted by the trustee as instructed. Such participants will be considered named fiduciaries with respect to the shares allocated to their accounts solely for purposes of this proxy solicitation. If no voting instructions are provided, shares held in the accounts will be voted in the same manner and proportion as shares with respect to which valid voting instructions were received. Any instructions received by the trustee from participants regarding their vote shall be confidential. Cummins RSP participants may attend the Annual Meeting virtually but cannot vote the shares in their Cummins RSP accounts at the Annual Meeting.

PROXY SUMMARY
Our 2023 Performance*
In 2023, our revenues reached a record $34.1 billion, an increase of 21 percent from the prior year. Sales in North America increased 22 percent and international revenues increased 20 percent. We saw strong global demand across most key regions and markets, particularly North America truck and global power generation, and slow economic recovery in China. Supply chain constraints improved throughout the year but continued to limit the industry’s collective ability to meet end-user demand. We leveraged our global footprint to meet the needs of our customers and delivered solid operational performance, resulting in record sales and operating cash flow in 2023.
In the fourth quarter of 2023, we recorded a one-time charge of $2.04 billion related to the previously disclosed Agreement in Principle to settle regulatory claims from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) regarding our emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in pick-up truck applications.
Earnings per diluted share (EPS) were $5.15, down from $15.12 in 2022. Adjusted EPS was $19.69 in 2023, an increase from $16.29 in 2022. 2023 adjusted EPS excludes the impact of the Agreement in Principle ($13.78 per diluted share), costs associated with the planned separation of Atmus ($0.54 per diluted share), and costs associated with voluntary restructuring actions ($0.22 per diluted share). 2022 adjusted EPS excludes the impact of costs related to the indefinite suspension of operations in Russia ($0.72 per diluted share) and the costs related to the separation of the Filtration business ($0.45 per diluted share).

Composition of the Board
BOARD INDEPENDENCE AND DIVERSITY
Our Board represents a balance of longer-tenured members with in-depth knowledge of our business and newer members who bring valuable additional attributes, skills and experience. Stephen B, Dobbs and Georgia R. Nelson will be retiring from the Board and not standing for reelection at our Annual Meeting. Accordingly, our Board will consist of 11 directors following the conclusion of the Annual Meeting.

Executive Compensation
ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
Our long-term success depends on our ability to attract, motivate, focus and retain highly talented individuals committed to Cummins’ vision, strategy and corporate culture. To that end, our executive compensation program is designed to link our executives’ pay to their individual performance, to Cummins’ annual and long-term performance and to successful execution of Cummins’ business strategies. We also use our executive compensation program to encourage high-performing executives to remain with us over the course of their careers.
We believe the compensation packages for our Named Executive Officers reflect their extensive management experience, continued high performance, and exceptional service to Cummins. We also believe our compensation strategies have been effective in attracting executive talent and promoting performance and retention.
EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION PRINCIPLES
We believe the level of compensation received by executives should be closely tied to our corporate financial and stock price performance. This principle is apparent in the design of our executive compensation program and in the specific compensation packages we award.
In addition to aligning our executives’ pay with performance, we follow several other principles when designing and implementing our executive compensation program.

pay at risk

simple and transparent

short-term/long-term mix

retention

TARGET COMPENSATION MIX
We believe the compensation of our most senior executives should be based on Cummins’ overall performance. Every executive’s pay is tied to the same financial metrics and a significant amount of their pay is incentive-based and therefore at risk.

GOVERNANCE
We long have believed that good corporate governance is important in ensuring that we are managed for the long-term benefit of our shareholders.

We also benchmark our governance structure and policies against industry best practices and the practices of other comparable public companies. Our corporate governance principles, charters for each of our Board’s Audit, Talent Management and Compensation and Governance and Nominating Committees, our code of business conduct and our by-laws, along with certain other corporate governance documents, are available on our website, www.cummins.com, and are otherwise available in print to any shareholder who requests them from our Secretary.

In 2022, 6 individual directors visited 4 different locations in the United States, and in 2023, 9 individual directors visited 6 different locations in China, Canada, and the United States.

Additional Governance Features
Director Selection and Board Refreshment
It is a top priority of our Board and our Governance and Nominating Committee that our directors have the skills, background and values to effectively represent the long-term interests of our shareholders and other stakeholders. Throughout the year, our Board reviews a matrix of the qualifications, skills and experience that we believe our Board needs to have and discusses whether there are any gaps that need to be filled that will improve our Board’s performance. We assess potential new director candidates in light of the matrix and whether they possess the qualifications, skills and experience needed by our Board. When we identify potential new director candidates, we review extensive background information compiled by our professional search firm, evaluate their references, consider their prior board experience and conduct virtual and in-person interviews.
We also focus on board refreshment because we believe that new perspectives and ideas are essential for an innovative and strategic board. Since 2015, we have added nine new directors to our Board. Director nominees also represent diverse perspectives, including four female director nominees and two African-American director nominees.
The Governance and Nominating Committee routinely reviews the Board’s committee assignments with a goal of rotating membership on committees every three to five years. The committee assignments with regard to our directors appointed prior in or before 2020 were most recently rotated in May 2020. Our Board will continue to review and refresh the skills, qualifications and experiences that our Board needs to have to serve the long-term interests of our shareholders.
As required by our corporate governance principles, our Governance and Nominating Committee must recommend director nominees such that our Board is comprised of a substantial majority of independent directors and possesses a variety of experience and backgrounds, including those who have substantial experience in the business community, those who have substantial experience outside the business community (such as public, academic or scientific experience) and those who will represent our stakeholders as a whole rather than special interest groups or individual constituencies.
Each candidate must have sufficient time available to devote to our affairs and be free of any conflict of interest that would violate any applicable law or regulation or interfere with the proper performance of his or her responsibilities, including being able to represent the best long-term interests of all of our shareholders and other stakeholders. Each candidate also should possess substantial and significant experience that would be of particular importance to us in the performance of his or her duties as a director. The Committee does not intend to alter the manner in which it evaluates candidates, including the foregoing criteria, based on whether or not the candidate was recommended by a shareholder.
Importance of Diversity
One of our core values is diversity, equity and inclusion. In evaluating candidates for our Board, our Governance and Nominating Committee considers only potential directors who share this value, as well as our other core values of integrity, caring, excellence and teamwork. As reflected in our corporate governance principles, we are committed to equal employment opportunities in assembling our Board. We believe that directors with different backgrounds and experiences make our boardroom and our company stronger. As our Committee considers possible directors, it seeks out candidates who represent the diverse perspectives of all of our stakeholders. We believe our Board has been effective in assembling a highly-qualified, diverse group of directors. Our slate of director nominees for this Annual Meeting has four female director nominees and two African-American director nominees. We will continue to identify opportunities to enhance our Board diversity as we consider future candidates.

We believe that directors with different backgrounds and experiences makes our boardroom and our company stronger.

Shareholder Outreach
We believe that meaningful corporate governance should include regular conversations between our directors and our shareholders. Our Board members routinely meet with shareholders for conversations focused on our Board’s skill set and refreshment and its oversight of a variety of topics, including company strategy, growth, risk management and ESG issues. In addition, our Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary held discussions in 2023 with several top investors to capture their input on governance matters and practices, including our investor relations team and/or ESG team, as appropriate, for each discussion. We capture the feedback from these sessions and present it to the full Board for its consideration.
Succession Planning
CEO and leadership succession planning is one of our Board’s most important responsibilities. Many times throughout the year, our full Board discusses succession planning for our CEO and other critical leaders of the company. At least once a year, our Board dedicates itself to examining the succession plans for our complete leadership team.
Sustainability and ESG
Sustainability is not new to Cummins. For several decades both sustainability and efforts related to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues have been critical elements of our long-term business and growth strategies. Well before “ESG” entered the general lexicon, Cummins was focused on producing engines that reduced the environmental impact, supported healthier communities, and embraced diversity and inclusion among our values. With these principles embedded in everything we do, our ESG strategy is our business strategy. With the support and oversight of our Board, we continue our focus on sustainability which includes our efforts related to ESG. We ensure Board oversight of our top ESG risks and opportunities in the following committees depending upon the topic: Talent Management and Compensation Committee; Safety, Environmental and Technology Committee; Audit Committee and the Governance and Nominating Committee. We also review the ESG Strategy and progress

Independence
Ten of our eleven director nominees qualify as independent directors within the meaning of the rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, and the corporate governance standards for companies listed on the NYSE. Our Board has adopted independence standards that meet or exceed the independence standards of the NYSE, including categorical standards to assist the Governance and Nominating Committee and our Board in evaluating the independence of each director. The categorical standards are included in our corporate governance principles, which are available on our website at www.cummins.com. A copy also may be obtained upon written request.
Following a discussion and applying the standards referenced above, the Governance and Nominating Committee of our Board determined that all director nominees standing for election, except Jennifer W. Rumsey, our Chair and Chief Executive Officer, qualify as independent. Based on the recommendation of the Committee, our full Board approved this conclusion.
Leadership Structure
Our corporate governance principles describe in detail how our Board must conduct its oversight responsibilities in representing and protecting our company’s stakeholders. As stated in the principles, our Board has the freedom to decide whom our Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer should be based solely on what it believes is in the best interests of our company. The roles of our Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer were combined in August 2023, when Ms. Rumsey was elected Chairperson of the Board following Mr. Linebarger’s resignation as Chairperson of the Board and Executive Chairperson. Currently, our Board believes it is in the best interests of our company for the roles of our Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer to be combined and to continue to appoint a Lead Director from among our independent directors.
Our Board believes that this leadership structure currently assists our Board in creating a unified vision for our company, streamlines accountability for our performance and facilitates our Board’s efficient and effective functioning.
Our Board evaluates its policy on whether the roles of our Chairperson of the Board and Chief Executive Officer should be combined on an annual basis. In doing so, our Board considers the skills, experiences and qualifications of our then-serving directors (including any newly elected directors), the evolving needs of our company, how well our leadership structure is functioning and the views of our shareholders.
Based on its review of our leadership structure, our Board continues to believe that Ms. Rumsey, our Chief Executive Officer, is the person best qualified to serve as our Chairperson of the Board given her history in executive positions with our company and her skills and experience in the industries in which we operate. Thomas J. Lynch is our independent Lead Director. Mr. Lynch was selected for this position because of his service on our Board since 2015 and his leadership positions in the public and private sector. Mr. Lynch is actively involved in setting and approving the Board’s agendas and focus and works to create a collaborative atmosphere that leverages the strengths of our diverse Board and encourages directors to actively question management when necessary and seeks to ensure that our Board is receiving the information necessary to complete its duties. The Lead Director also regularly meets with other directors and members of senior management outside of the regularly scheduled Board meetings to ensure that our Board is functioning effectively and to identify areas of potential improvement.
   
OUR LEAD DIRECTOR’S RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:
SERVING as Chair of the Governance and Nominating Committee;
CONFERRING with the Chairperson on, and approving, Board meeting agendas and meeting schedules to assure there is sufficient time for discussion of all agenda items;
CALLING AND PRESIDING over all meetings of the Board at which the Chairperson is not present, including executive sessions of independent directors and communicating feedback on executive sessions to the Chairperson;
LEADING the annual performance reviews of the Chief Executive Officer and the Board;
ENSURING that there is open communication between our independent directors and the Chairperson and other management members;
BEING AVAILABLE, when deemed appropriate by the Board, for consultation and direct communication with shareholders;
REVIEWING, at his or her discretion, information to be sent to the Board; and
CONFERRING with the Chairperson on other issues of corporate importance, as appropriate.

Risk Oversight
Our Board and its committees are involved on an ongoing basis in the oversight of our material enterprise-related risks. The company has a mature enterprise risk management program that identifies, categorizes and analyzes the relative severity and likelihood of the various types of material enterprise-related risks to which we are or may be subject. The company has an executive risk council, comprised of the Senior Vice President, Vice-President – Chief Financial Officer, Vice President and Chief Legal Officer, Vice President – Corporate Strategy and Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer that meets quarterly with our Executive Director, Global Risk to review and update our material enterprise-related risks and mitigation plans for each. We assign ownership of our most significant enterprise risks to a member of our executive management team. The Executive Director, Global Risk oversees enterprise risk management and sets the strategic direction for and the coordination of ESG and sustainability efforts of the company.
Our Board, Audit Committee, Finance Committee, Talent Management and Compensation Committee, Governance and Nominating Committee and Safety, Environment and Technology Committee receive periodic reports and information directly from our senior leaders who have functional responsibility for the mitigation of our enterprise risks. Our Board and/or its appropriate committees then review such information, including management’s proposed mitigation strategies and plans, to monitor our progress on mitigating the risks. For example, to oversee the company’s work to mitigate cybersecurity risks, we have identified separate risks for enterprise cybersecurity and product cybersecurity. The Audit Committee provides primary oversight for enterprise cybersecurity while the Safety, Environment and Technology Committee provides oversight of product cybersecurity. Our Executive Director, Global Risk and our global cybersecurity leader meet regularly with the Board and its committees to review relevant areas including:

Review of a cybersecurity dashboard to track key metrics of the information security/cybersecurity program,

The purchase of cybersecurity risk insurance to mitigate exposure to the company, and

Metrics of the company’s training and compliance program on information security and awareness of cyber risk.
Additionally, the Board and its Committees provide oversight of the company’s ESG risks and opportunities, including at least one annual review by our full Board of ESG strategy and challenges. The designated committees undertake detailed reviews of specific ESG risks and opportunities. For example, our Safety, Environment and Technology Committee provides primary oversight for environmental risks and opportunities and our Audit Committee provides oversight of the data integrity of ESG-related disclosures. Our Board or its Committees review ESG strategy, risks and progress with dedicated time at every regular Board meeting. We believe that our Board’s current leadership structure effectively supports the risk oversight function of our Board based on the level of independence, qualifications, diversity and skills of its members.
Board of Directors and Committees
Our Board held 9 meetings during 2023. All of the directors attended 75% or more of the aggregate number of meetings of our Board and the committees on which they served that were held during the periods in which they served. The non-employee members of our Board also met in executive session without management present as part of each regular meeting. Thomas J. Lynch, our current Lead Director, presided over these sessions.
Under our corporate governance principles, our Board has established six standing committees, with five of the committees consisting entirely of independent directors. Certain of the principal functions performed by these committees and the members of our Board currently serving on these committees are as follows:

Each notice required by our by-laws must be signed manually or by facsimile by the shareholder of record and must set forth the information required by our by-laws, including (i) the name and address, as they appear on our books, of the shareholder who intends to make the nomination and of any beneficial owner or owners on whose behalf the nomination is made; (ii) a representation that the shareholder is a holder of record of shares of our Common Stock entitled to vote at such meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the meeting to nominate the person or persons specified in the notice; (iii) certain other information regarding the shareholder and its interests in our company; (iv) the name, age, business address and residential address of each nominee proposed in such notice; (v) the principal occupation or employment of each such nominee; (vi) the number of shares of our capital stock that are owned of record or beneficially by each such nominee; (vii) with respect to each nominee for election or reelection to our Board, a completed and signed questionnaire, representation and agreement described in our by-laws; (viii) such other information regarding each nominee proposed by such shareholder as would have been required to be included in a proxy statement filed pursuant to the proxy rules of the SEC had each nominee been nominated, or intended to be nominated, by our Board; (ix) a description of all direct and indirect compensation and other material monetary agreements, arrangements and understandings during the past three years, and any other material relationships, including all arrangements or understandings pursuant to which the nominations are being made, between or among such shareholder and beneficial owner, if any, and their respective affiliates and associates, or others acting in concert therewith, on the one hand, and each proposed nominee, and his or her respective affiliates and associates, or any other person or persons (naming such person or persons), on the other hand; and (x) the written consent of each nominee to serve as a director if so elected.
The deadline for receiving any written notice of a shareholder’s intent to make a nomination with respect to the Annual Meeting was the close of business on December 6, 2023, which was 160 days in advance of the Annual Meeting (which is typically held on the second Tuesday of each May). We received no such qualifying nominations before this deadline with respect to the Annual Meeting.
In order for shareholders to give timely notice of director nominations at our 2025 annual meeting of shareholders for inclusion on a universal proxy card under Rule 14a-19 of the Exchange Act, notice must be submitted by the same deadline as disclosed above under the procedures for Shareholder director candidate recommendations set forth in our by-laws and must also include the information in the notice required by our by-laws and by Rule 14a-19 of the Exchange Act.

Communication with the Board of Directors
Shareholders and other interested parties may communicate with our Board, including our Lead Director and other non-management directors, by sending written communication to the directors c/o our Secretary, 301 East Market Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204. All such communications will be reviewed by the Secretary or his or her designee to determine which communications are appropriate to be forwarded to the directors. All communications will be forwarded except those that are related to our products and services, are solicitations or otherwise relate to improper or irrelevant topics as determined in the sole discretion of the Secretary or his or her designee.
Our Secretary maintains and provides copies of all such communications received and determined appropriate to be forwarded to the Governance and Nominating Committee in advance of each of its meetings and reports to the Committee on the number and nature of communications that were not determined appropriate to be forwarded.
We require all of our director nominees standing for election at an annual meeting of shareholders to attend such meeting. All but one of the director nominees standing for election at our 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders were present at the virtual meeting. We currently expect all director nominees to be present virtually at the Annual Meeting.

OF DIRECTORS
(Items 1 through 11 on the Proxy Card)
General
With the exception of Stephen B. Dobbs and Georgia R. Nelson, all of our current directors are nominated for reelection at the Annual Meeting to hold office until our 2025 annual meeting of shareholders and until their successors are elected and qualified. Any submitted proxy will be voted in favor of the nominees named below to serve as directors unless the shareholder indicates to the contrary on his or her proxy. Except for director nominees Daniel W. Fisher and John H. Stone, all nominees have been previously elected to our Board by our shareholders and have served continuously since the date indicated below.
Majority Vote Required for Director Elections
To be elected, each director nominee must receive a majority of the votes cast by shareholders at the Annual Meeting. Receipt by a nominee of the majority of votes cast means that the number of shares voted “for” exceeds the number of votes “against” that nominee. Abstentions and broker non-votes are not counted as a vote either “for” or “against” a nominee. Our by-laws provide that the term of any incumbent director who receives more “against” votes than “for” votes in an uncontested election will automatically terminate at the shareholder meeting at which the votes were cast. In the case of a contested election, directors will be elected by a plurality of the votes represented in person or by proxy and entitled to vote in the election.
Our Board expects that each of the nominees will be able to serve as a director if elected at the Annual Meeting, but if any of them is unable to serve at the time the election occurs, proxies received that have been voted either for such nominee or for all nominees or which contain no voting instructions will be voted for the election of another nominee to be designated by our Board, unless our Board decides to reduce the number of our directors.
Nominees for Board of Directors
The names of the nominees for directors, together with biographical sketches, including their business experience during the past five years, directorships of other public corporations and their qualifications to serve on our Board are set forth below, beginning with our Chair of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, then followed by our independent directors in alphabetical order.

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
Note from the Chair of Our Talent Management & Compensation Committee
As Chair of the Talent Management and Compensation Committee (“TMCC” or “Committee”), I am pleased to share my perspectives on our Committee’s work in 2023 for the benefit of our shareholders and stakeholders.
As you know, the last two years have marked a period of leadership transition, with the appointment of Jen Rumsey as our Chair and Chief Executive Officer and Tom Linebarger’s retirement. In 2023, under Jen’s leadership, the company generated record results, as highlighted in the Executive Summary of this year’s CD&A. Specifically, we delivered exemplary results in our core business, restructured our business portfolio by successfully integrating Meritor and taking Atmus Filtration public, continued to invest in and achieve significant progress on Destination Zero, and fully implemented our succession plan by placing highly talented, seasoned, and engaged leaders in key positions for a promising future.
More broadly, the Committee continued to support and oversee the company’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts with focused oversight of our progress on DEI throughout the year. The company received awards and recognition in 2023 for its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) efforts, as evidenced by earning the prestigious 2023 NACD DEI Award and being designated one of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens among the 1,000 largest U.S. public companies. We also continue to ensure our board composition aligns with our DEI commitment. Today, 50 percent of our board members are diverse.
The TMCC also oversaw significant work to develop new human resources and compensation strategies in support of Destination Zero. In 2023, we implemented short- and long-term incentive plans that incorporate distinct measures and goals for Accelera™, by Cummins, our new brand for our New Power business unit. 2024, we will continue to evaluate how our strong ESG initiatives can best be recognized in our pay plans throughout the organization.
In December, we reached an agreement in principle with various regulatory agencies to resolve certain regulatory civil claims regarding our emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in pick-up truck applications. As a result, our Committee concluded that Ms. Rumsey’s 2023 bonus would be reduced by 50% and Mr. Linebarger’s would be reduced to $0.
I am proud of the TMCC’s work and the strength of the company’s values. I am confident that the company will continue to build on its strong foundation and have a positive and palpable impact on our world for years to come.
Sincerely,
GEORGIA R. NELSON
Chair

Executive Summary
Cummins operates with a strong pay for performance and team-oriented philosophy and continued to do so in 2023. The summary below highlights our business results, how our talent management supported those results, our governance framework, and compensation for our executives and the rationale for those decisions.
HOW DID WE PERFORM?
KEY 2023 PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS
[MISSING IMAGE: fc_keyperformance-pn.jpg]
*
2023 results exclude the charge related to the Agreement in Principle, costs associated with the separation of Atmus, and costs associated with the voluntary retirement and separation program. 2022 results exclude costs related to the indefinite suspension of operations in Russia and the costs related to the separation of the Filtration business. See Appendix A for reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures referenced in this section.
In 2023, our revenues reached a record $34.1 billion, an increase of 21 percent from the prior year. Sales in North America increased 22 percent and international revenues increased 20 percent. We saw strong global demand across most key regions and markets, particularly North America truck and global power generation, and slow economic recovery in China. Supply chain constraints improved throughout the year but continued to limit the industry’s collective ability to meet end-user demand. We leveraged our global footprint to meet the needs of our customers and delivered solid operational performance, resulting in record sales and operating cash flow in 2023.
In the fourth quarter of 2023, we recorded a one-time charge of $2.04 billion related to the previously disclosed Agreement in Principle to settle regulatory claims from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) regarding our emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in pick-up truck applications.
Earnings per diluted share (EPS) were $5.15, down from $15.12 in 2022. Adjusted EPS was $19.69 in 2023, an increase from $16.29 in 2022. 2023 adjusted EPS excludes the impact of the Agreement in Principle ($13.78 per diluted share), costs associated with the planned separation of Atmus ($0.54 per diluted share), and costs associated with voluntary restructuring actions ($0.22 per diluted share). 2022 adjusted EPS excludes the impact of costs related to the indefinite suspension of operations in Russia ($0.72 per diluted share) and the costs related to the separation of the Filtration business ($0.45 per diluted share).
In 2023, we achieved significant progress on Destination Zero, our strategy to reduce the greenhouse gas and air quality impacts of our products while continuing to grow our business and impact. We announced more than $1 billion of investment in our U.S. engine manufacturing network to support the industry’s first fuel agnostic engine platforms, which we announced in 2022, as well as several major partnerships to bring the X15 natural gas engine to the North America market in 2024. In addition, Accelera, Daimler Trucks & Buses, PACCAR and EVE Energy announced in September a joint venture to accelerate and localize battery cell production and the battery supply chain for electric commercial vehicles and industrial applications in the United States, and in January announced Marshall County, Mississippi, as the future site.

In 2023, we invested a record $1.5 billion in research and development in our product portfolio of diesel, natural gas, axles, battery, fuel cells, electrolyzers and related components. We remain disciplined as we examine new organic investments, partnerships and acquisition opportunities that leverage our capabilities, and we are committed to profitable growth, working capital management, and generating strong returns for our shareholders.
HOW DO OUR PAY STRATEGY AND PROGRAMS SUPPORT OUR BUSINESS STRATEGY?
Our compensation programs are designed to drive our business strategy and results. As previously disclosed, in 2023, following a comprehensive review of our pay strategy and programs to ensure their alignment with the company’s decarbonization strategy, we made a number of changes to our approach to pay on a go-forward basis, beginning in 2023. Highlights included:
[MISSING IMAGE: ic_rightsymbol-pn.jpg]
We continue to operate as “one Cummins,” characterized by a strong culture and synergies across business units. However, the new program also recognizes Accelera’s need to focus on different measures of success and attract and retain talent with different skills compared to those in our traditional core engine business. As a result, the performance measures and their linkage to our traditional core and Accelera entities are tailored to the unit in which the participant works
[MISSING IMAGE: ic_rightsymbol-pn.jpg]
Our programs in 2023 recognized our decision to spin off Atmus, our filtration business, into a publicly traded company so that Atmus has its own access to capital. Atmus completed its initial public offering in 2023 and fully separated in 2024. As a result, Atmus’ 2023 incentive programs were driven entirely by Atmus’ performance, except that Atmus Long-Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) participants received Cummins equity-based compensation until Atmus completed its initial public offering, at which time Atmus began to compensate its LTIP participants in Atmus equity-based compensation
[MISSING IMAGE: ic_rightsymbol-pn.jpg]
To help retain valuable talent and reinforce the alignment of interests between our employees and shareholders, our compensation program provides for broad participation in our equity incentive plans and heavy and strategic use of equity, where warranted
In recognition of the increasing competitiveness for talent, the program will allow for greater flexibility in making pay decisions.
We also changed the performance measures and weightings under our Annual Bonus Plan (ABP) for Cummins participants, including our Named Executive Officers (NEOs) in 2023, moving from a single performance goal relating to Return on Average Net Assets (ROANA) to a structure in which an Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) goal was weighted 70% and an Operating Cash Flow goal was weighted 30%. The revised measures are better aligned with our strategy, ensuring a focus on profitable growth and working capital management across the company, which are critical to sustaining the level of investment necessary to position us for future growth.
In 2023, we established a Deposit Share Program that was intended to encourage long-term retention and continuity and alignment of the interests of our named executive officers with our shareholders. Implementation of the Program was delayed until 2024 because of an extended closed trading window that restricted the participants’ ability to acquire shares of common stock in 2023. Under the Program, designated participants, including certain of our named executive officers, are eligible to receive matching grants of restricted stock units if they commit newly acquired shares of our common stock and agree to hold those newly acquired shares for four years. The matching grants of restricted stock units will cliff vest on the fourth anniversary of the participation deadline if the participant has remained continuously employed and has satisfied the holding requirement for the newly acquired shares.

HOW DID OUR TALENT STRATEGIES AND ACTIONS SUPPORT OUR PERFORMANCE?
We employ approximately 75,500 people operating in 53 countries around the globe. We believe that a global, diverse, and healthy workforce, supported by talented, inspiring leaders, is a critical ingredient to our maintaining a competitive advantage in our global marketplace. Our talent strategy is designed to “Inspire and Encourage All Employees to Reach Their Full Potential.” This strategy is built upon four pillars, each of which is described in more detail below:
CUMMINS’ TALENT STRATEGY: BUILT ON FOUR PILLARS

DEVELOP SELF-AWARE AND EFFECTIVE LEADERS
ADVANCE OUR WORKFORCE STRATEGY BY EXTENDING OUR TALENT MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES TO ALL EMPLOYEES
[MISSING IMAGE: ic_diversityreverse-pn.jpg]
FIRST PILLAR: CREATE A DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE WORK ENVIRONMENT
We consider Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) to be a business imperative that creates value for all our stakeholders. In 2023, we advanced our DEI framework that prioritized the establishment of equitable experiences throughout the employee life cycle of under-represented groups and the enablement of DEI skills and competence in our leaders and employees. Specifically, Cummins identified a number of primary global DEI initiatives on which to focus:

Disability inclusion, enabling people with disabilities to work toward their full potential. Examples include accessibility-related features integrated into Cummins’ global building standards and accessible technology solutions for employees with disabilities

Increased global diversity, with multiple initiatives focused on the attraction, retention, development, and advancement of under-represented groups. Examples include: aspirational representation goals for Black and Latino employees in the U.S.; Cummins RePower program for female engineers and technical professionals; robust training for people managers; and more than 150 employee resource groups

Veteran inclusion, accelerating the strategy and engagement of this initiative to improve workforce inclusion and support Veterans and their families. Examples include: establishing aspirational goals for veteran employment representation at all levels of the organization that mirror or exceed that of our communities; signing the United Kingdom Armed Forces Covenant, increasing Veteran hires through the Skillbridge program; participating in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring our Heroes Fellowship Program; and creating our veteran mentoring program
Cummins’ intentional focus is having a significant impact on the company and its employees. Here is a look at key diversity demographics at Cummins as of December 2023:

Cummins CEO Jennifer Rumsey was appointed as the company’s Board Chair in August 2023, the first woman to serve in this role

43% of the Cummins Leadership Team (CLT), the top leadership team at the company, are women

40% of the company’s Vice Presidents are women

27.3% of the company’s global workforce is comprised of women

14% of the company’s U.S.-based workforce are Black and 9.1% Latino

26% of the company’s U.S. based Vice Presidents are Black or Latino

SECOND PILLAR: ENGAGE EMPLOYEES AND FAMILIES IN IMPROVING WELLNESS
At Cummins, providing meaningful, equitable health, wellness and rewards programs is at the center of our compensation and benefits strategy. In 2023, we:

Continued to strengthen our global mental health campaign to normalize and destigmatize mental health

Focused on better engagement with our U.S. manufacturing employees, visiting 32 sites and meeting with over 17,500 employees to bring curated information about our health, wellness, and total rewards programs that support the emotional, physical, financial, and social wellness of employees and their families

Implemented a global standard for medical clearance evaluations to ensure optimal safety for employees performing higher-risk tasks

Provided high-quality clinical services at onsite and near-site medical clinics at 36 key locations throughout the world

Expanded our U.S. benefit offerings to include voluntary supplemental medical programs to support our employees’ physical and financial wellness
[MISSING IMAGE: ic_leadersreverse-pn.jpg]
THIRD PILLAR: DEVELOP SELF-AWARE AND EFFECTIVE LEADERS
Cummins views talent development and succession planning as critical to achieving the company’s performance objectives. For talent development, we focus on the entire employee lifecycle experience, from recruitment and hiring, to development and progression, to retirement. To achieve a distinguishing positive experience, we focus holistically on our employees being able to easily learn about talent strategy and planning, leadership and other development opportunities, retention strategies, performance management, compensation and benefits management, and succession planning. We provide our leaders the tools they need to advance their personal growth as well as their contribution to the sustainable growth of our enterprise.
Cummins follows a disciplined process to ensure it is generating capable and diverse talent slates for all senior positions and developing high-potential leaders to close any skill and behavioral gaps. Cummins views a robust succession planning process as a critical component to minimizing risks and achieving its diversity objectives. Importantly, in 2022, Cummins’ succession planning process resulted in a successful transition of the CEO role from Tom Linebarger to Jennifer Rumsey. In addition, the Cummins Leadership Team (CLT), comprised of those who are directly reporting to Jennifer Rumsey, was successfully reconstituted. The CLT is comprised of a diverse and talented group of 14 executives, including 6 women and 4 people of color.
[MISSING IMAGE: ic_workforcereverse-pn.jpg]
FOURTH PILLAR: ADVANCE OUR WORKFORCE STRATEGY BY EXTENDING OUR TALENT MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES TO ALL EMPLOYEES
Cummins has created a strong work environment in which people can enter the firm at an early stage in their careers and grow with the company, aided by best-in-class development programs. Given our long-term decarbonization strategy, we also recognize the need to act with agility at all levels, including mid- and senior-career hires, particularly with respect to our highly competitive technical positions.
As a result, we implemented new approaches to help manage the career and pay progression of Cummins’ employees. This new approach will provide managers greater autonomy and flexibility so they can more effectively recruit, retain, and optimize the deployment of our people to overcome challenges in our highly competitive talent markets. We also have developed more effective mechanisms for recruiting talented individuals at all levels in the organization, as well as progressing people more quickly within the organization. This diversifies our approach to talent management, which is benefiting both our employees and the company.

HOW DID WE ALIGN EXECUTIVE PAY AND PERFORMANCE?
ANNUAL BONUS PLAN*
PERFORMANCE SHARE &
PERFORMANCE CASH PLANS
LONG TERM INCENTIVE MIX
The Cummins Annual Bonus Plan paid out 170% of target based on actual 2023 EBITDA of $5,153 million against a target of $4,611 million, weighted 70%, and actual 2023 Operating Cash Flow of $3,966 million against a target of $3,294 million, weighted 30%. All employees participating in the Cummins bonus plan received the same payout factor.
The Cummins Performance Share and Performance Cash plans for the 2021-2023 performance cycle paid out at 150% of target based on actual 3-year cumulative EBITDA of $12,639 million compared to our goal of $11,011 million, and ROIC of 17.00% compared to our target of 15%. All employees participating in the Cummins long-term performance plans received the same payout factor.
As previously disclosed, the 2023 long-term incentive grant was 100% performance-based. The grants consisted of performance shares (70%) and performance cash (30%).
ALIGNMENT BETWEEN CEO’S REALIZABLE PAY & FINANCIAL / TSR PERFORMANCE
Every year, the Committee, along with its consultant, Farient Advisors LLC (“Farient”), quantitatively and qualitatively assesses the relationship between realizable pay of our CEO and our company’s performance. As in prior years, the Committee determined that our CEO’s pay and our company’s performance are closely aligned. An analysis of pay and performance alignment can be found in the Pay vs. Performance section of this proxy.
*
In December, we reached an agreement in principle with various regulatory agencies to resolve certain regulatory civil claims regarding our emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in pick-up truck applications. As a result, our Committee concluded that Ms. Rumsey’s 2023 bonus would be reduced by 50% and Mr. Linebarger’s would be reduced to $0.

Purpose and Principles of our Executive Compensation Program
PURPOSE OF OUR EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION PROGRAM
Our long-term success depends on our ability to attract, motivate, focus, and retain highly talented individuals committed to Cummins’ vision, strategy and corporate culture. To that end, our incentive plans, which apply to all participants including executives, are designed to link pay to annual and long-term performance, and to the successful execution of business strategies. Our salary levels and incentive targets are intended to recognize individual performance and market pay levels. We also use our executive compensation program to encourage high performing executives to remain with us over the course of their careers.
   
PRINCIPLES OF OUR EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION PROGRAM
Our compensation philosophy rewards executives for achieving our financial objectives and building long-term value for our shareholders and other stakeholders. We also follow several other principles when designing our executive compensation program including:
MARKET POSITIONING We believe that, on average, our executives’ target total direct compensation opportunity (consisting of base salary, target annual bonus, and target long-term incentive value) should be at the median of the market.
SHORT-TERM / LONG-TERM MIX We believe that there should be an appropriate balance between annual and long-term elements of compensation commensurate with the position’s decision-making time horizon and competitive context.
PAY AT RISK We believe that the more senior an executive’s position, the more compensation should be “at risk,” which means it will vary based on Cummins’ financial and stock price performance.
RETENTION We believe that our compensation program should support retention of our experienced executives and achievements of our leadership succession plans.
SIMPLE AND TRANSPARENT We believe that our executive compensation program should be transparent to our investors and employees as well as simple and easy to understand.
ALIGNMENT WITH SHAREHOLDER INTERESTS We believe that equity-based compensation and stock ownership should be a substantial part of our executive compensation program to link executives’ compensation with our shareholders’ returns. The greater the level of responsibility of the executive, the more his or her compensation should be stock-based and the higher his or her stock ownership requirement should be.

Advisory Shareholder Say-on-Pay Vote
At our 2023 Annual Meeting, after the 2023 executive compensation actions described in this CD&A had taken place, we held an advisory shareholder vote to approve the compensation of our Named Executive Officers (our “NEOs”). Of the votes cast by our shareholders, 95.7% were voted in favor of our executive compensation. In keeping with the recommendation of our Board, our shareholders also expressed a preference that future advisory shareholder votes to approve the compensation of our NEOs be held on an annual basis and, as previously disclosed, our Board determined to hold an advisory vote to approve the compensation of the NEOs every year.
The Committee considered the voting results from our advisory shareholder vote on compensation along with shareholder feedback as a part of its comprehensive assessment of Cummins’ executive compensation programs. Given the support we received from shareholders, we did not undertake any material changes to our executive compensation program in response to this vote. The Committee will continue to review our compensation programs each year in light of the annual “say-on-pay” voting results and will continue to solicit shareholder feedback to ensure our programs are aligned with their expectations.
[MISSING IMAGE: pc_saypay-pn.jpg]
Compensation Elements Support Pay For Performance Philosophy
As in prior years, our compensation programs are designed to support our pay-for-performance philosophy aligned with the interests of our shareholders and other stakeholders. The key elements of the Cummins’ executive compensation program for 2023 were:
Compensation Element
Form of Payment
Performance Metrics
Rationale
Base salary
Cash
Individual Performance
Market-based to attract and retain skilled executives. Designed to recognize scope of responsibility, individual performance and experience.
Annual bonus
Cash
Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) weighted at 70% and Operating Cash Flow weighted at 30%
EBITDA and Operating Cash Flow provide a focus on profitable growth and working capital management across the company, which are critical to sustaining the level of investment necessary to position us for future growth
Long-term incentive compensation
Performance cash (30%) and Performance shares (70%)
Return on Invested Capital (ROIC), weighted at 80% and EBITDA, weighted at 20% over a three-year period
ROIC and EBITDA provide an incentive for profitable growth and correlate well with shareholder value.
As described below under the “One-Time Bonus Award,” in 2023 we paid a one-time special cash bonus to Mr. Boakye pursuant to the terms of his offer letter. The bonus was an important part of a competitive compensation package offered to Mr. Boakye to join our company and was intended to facilitate his participation in the Deposit Share Program, although the offer letter did not require that the bonus be used for that purpose.

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
We believe the compensation of our most senior executives should be based on Cummins’ overall financial performance and a significant portion of their pay should be incentive-based and therefore at risk.
In 2023, performance-linked components (annual bonus and long-term incentive compensation excluding a one-time special cash payment described below under “One-Time Bonus Award”) were 89% of the CEO’s target total direct compensation opportunity and 76% of the average target total direct compensation opportunity for the other Named Executive Officers. These pay elements were allocated as shown below.

Mr. Tom Linebarger is excluded from the other NEO average since he retired in July 2023.
Target Executive Compensation Informed By the Market
The Committee reviews our executive compensation pay levels and programs on a regular basis. For pay levels, we generally target the median of the market for total direct compensation as well as its components, including salary, bonus targets, and long-term incentive target values. We consider target compensation to be market competitive if it is within +/-10% of the median level indicated by the benchmarking data.
For making 2023 pay decisions, our primary compensation benchmarking sources were manufacturing companies in nationally recognized compensation surveys. We also considered data from our Custom Peer Group (described below) regarding pay levels for the CEO and CFO and pay program design, dilution, and performance. We believe this approach provides an appropriate representation of the market, and using multiple sources lessens the impact of fluctuations in market data over time.
Our Custom Peer Group, identified in 2022 for making 2023 pay decisions, was made up of the fifteen public companies listed below. All companies fell into at least one of the following categories:

customers with a strong presence in one or more of our major markets;

companies that compete directly or indirectly with one or more of Cummins’ businesses;

key suppliers of related products; and

diversified industrial companies that compete for investor capital within the Industrial market segment.
The Custom Peer Group companies are also similar to Cummins in size and investor profile and compete with us for customers and talent.
Borg Warner Incorporated (BWA)
Caterpillar Incorporated (CAT)
Daimler Truck AG (DTG-XE)
Deere & Company (DE)
Dana Incorporated (DAN)
Eaton Corporation (ETN)
Emerson Electric Co. (EMR)
Fortive Corporation (FTV)
Honeywell International Inc. (HON)
Illinois Tool Works (ITW)
Paccar Incorporated (PCAR)
Parker-Hannifin Corporation (PH)
Textron Incorporated (TXT)
Volvo AB (VOLV B-SE)
W.W. Grainger (GWW)
Two changes were made to the peer group identified in 2022 for making 2023 pay decisions. Dana Incorporated was added as it provides exposure to similar products like e-axles, drivetrain components, and transmissions as well as electric and hybrid products. Donaldson was removed from the peer group due to our spin-off of Atmus into a separate publicly traded company.

HOW PERFORMANCE MEASURES AND GOALS ARE DETERMINED
The Committee regularly reviews all elements of our executive compensation program and makes changes as it deems appropriate. Each review includes general comparisons against market data and analysis prepared by Farient, including information on market practices in the following areas:

Pay strategy and positioning;

Annual bonus plan design, including performance measures and goals and plan leverage;

Long-term incentive plan strategy and design, including the mix of elements, as well as performance measures and goals and plan leverage;

Stock ownership guidelines;

Executive perquisites, including personal use of company aircraft; and

Executive benefits and protection policies, including severance practices for officers, supplemental retirement plans, deferred compensation plans and change in control arrangements.
The Talent Management and Compensation Committee establishes performance measures and goals each year for the annual and long-term incentive plans that are designed to help achieve our business strategy and objectives. The Committee also benchmarks against the historical performance of the Custom Peer Group and considers whether Cummins’ goals are sufficiently demanding relative to our peers. Additionally, the Committee solicits Farient’s assessment regarding the degree of difficulty associated with the incentive plan performance targets relative to both external analyst expectations for performance and peer performance expectations. The Committee believes this process leads to appropriate performance targets and incentive awards that reflect the creation of shareholder value.
The Talent Management and Compensation Committee has discretion to adjust performance results that reflect significant transactions (such as acquisitions, divestitures, or newly-formed joint ventures) or other unusual items (such as pension plan contributions above required levels, restructuring, or significant tax legislation) if such events were not anticipated at the time performance targets were initially established.
Compensation Programs
Our executive compensation program consists of three principal elements: base salary, annual bonus, and long-term incentive compensation. Together, these elements constitute total direct compensation.
Base Salary
We target base salary, on average, at the median of the market for similar executive positions. Some officers’ base salaries may vary from the median due to factors such as experience, tenure, potential, performance, and internal equity.
Annual Bonus
HOW BONUSES ARE CALCULATED
Our annual bonus is designed to link participants’ pay to our annual financial performance. The payout for each participant, including our NEOs, is calculated using the following formula:
[MISSING IMAGE: fc_annual-pn.jpg]
Target awards as a percentage of salary are set such that performance at the target goal level generates an annual bonus aligned with the median range of the market. The “payout factor” is determined based on Cummins’ actual financial performance against its annual goals.
2023 ANNUAL BONUS PERFORMANCE MEASURES
For the 2023 Cummins annual bonus plan, we decided to use EBITDA, weighted 70%, and Operating Cash Flow, weighted 30%, as the performance measures. We believe these measures are better aligned with our strategy, ensuring a focus on profitable growth and working capital management across the company, which are critical to sustaining the level of investment necessary to position us for future growth.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

EBITDA for compensation purposes equals:
EBITDA = Cumulative Earnings Before Interest Expense, Income Taxes, Noncontrolling Interests, Depreciation and Amortization for the 1-year performance period
Operating Cash Flow for compensation purposes equals:
Operating Cash Flow = Cash flow excluding capital expenditures, financing transactions (debt, leases), dividends, and share repurchases
EBITDA AND OPERATING CASH FLOW PERFORMANCE TARGETS FOR 2023
Setting the targets with the appropriate level of difficulty underscores the importance of achieving or exceeding our annual operating plan (AOP) performance commitment. This approach requires increasingly difficult targets during economic upturns and realistic goals during cyclical downturns. The 2023 EBITDA and Operating Cash Flow goals were set with this philosophy in mind.
Target EBITDA and operating cash flow were established by the TMCC after reviewing the AOP and considering input from Farient, the Committee’s independent outside consultant.
Target EBITDA (a 100% payout factor) was the amount required to achieve our AOP. As shown below, the possible payout factors for 2023 ranged from 10% for threshold performance (70% of target EBITDA) to a maximum of 200% for superior performance (115% of target EBITDA or better). The payout factor changed in increments of 10% for results that fell between threshold and target, or between target and maximum.
Target operating cash flow (a 100% payout factor) was the amount required to achieve our AOP. As shown below, the possible payout factors for 2023 ranged from 10% for threshold performance (70% of target operating cash flow) to a maximum of 200% for superior performance (115% of target operating cash flow or better). The payout factor changed in increments of 10% for results that fell between threshold and target, or between target and maximum.

Our 2023 EBITDA performance was $5,153 million and our operating cash flow performance was $3,966 million. As a result, the payout factor used to calculate the 2023 annual bonus for all participants on the Cummins bonus plan, including each of our Named Executive Officers, was 170% of target.
In calculating the 2023 annual bonus, we made the following exclusions:

$2 billion charge related to the agreement to resolve U.S. regulatory claims regarding our emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in pick-up truck applications in the U.S.

$100 million in costs associated with the separation of the Filtration business through the Atmus transaction

Long-Term Incentive Compensation
FORM OF LONG-TERM INCENTIVE AWARDS FOR 2023
The Cummins long-term incentive compensation program for 2023 consisted of performance shares and performance cash, weighted 70% and 30%, respectively. We believe that the combination of these long-term incentive vehicles supports our pay-for-performance philosophy, provides appropriate incentives for participants to achieve financial targets, and provides strong linkage between the economic interests of our participants, including our NEOs, and our shareholders.

TARGET GRANT VALUES
The TMCC generally sets the target long-term incentive values for our officers on average at the median of the market. Grant values are set using a market-based economic valuation methodology which converts the targeted value of the grants into a targeted number of performance shares and dollar amount of performance cash. The number of performance shares granted is based on a three-month average daily trading day stock price in the final quarter of our prior fiscal year to mitigate the impact of temporary stock price spikes or drops on the number of shares to be granted.
PERFORMANCE PLAN MEASURES
For the last several years, we have used two metrics for our long-term performance cash and performance shares: Return on Invested Capital (ROIC), which has an 80% weighting, and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA), which has a 20% weighting. The Talent Management and Compensation Committee reaffirmed these metrics were appropriate for the 2023-2025 award cycle as we continued to focus on both growth and delivering strong returns on the capital we invest. Together these metrics strongly correlate with total shareholder return.

ROIC AND EBITDA PERFORMANCE TARGETS FOR THE 2021-2023 AWARD CYCLE
For the 2021-2023 performance cycle, we set a stable ROIC target of 15%, which represents a target that is both above the median of our peer group as well as a challenging goal across the 3-year performance period. We endeavor to maintain a stable target as long as our strategy remains the same in delivering competitive long-term returns. We also established a cumulative 3-year EBITDA goal the Talent Management and Compensation Committee deemed to be challenging, yet realistic, and consistent with our long-term strategy and financial plans.
ROIC for compensation purposes equals:
ROIC = Average Earnings Before Interest Expense and Noncontrolling Interests after taxes for the 3-year performance period ÷ Average Invested Capital for the 3-year performance period

2021-2023 LONG-TERM PERFORMANCE CASH AND PERFORMANCE SHARE PAYOUTS
Based on our actual performance from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2023, our ROIC was 17.00% and our 3-year Cumulative EBITDA was $12,639 million. As a result, the payout factor used to calculate the awards for all long-term incentive participants under the Cummins plan, including each Named Executive Officer, was 150%. In calculating the 2021-2023 long-term incentive plan performance, we made the following exclusions:

$2 billion charge related to the agreement to resolve U.S. regulatory claims regarding our emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in pick-up truck applications in the U.S.

$181 million in costs associated with the separation of the Filtration business ($100 million in 2023 and $81 million in 2022)

$26 million of net benefit from the Meritor business which includes acquisition and integration costs

$111 million of expense related to the indefinite suspension of operations in Russia, including inventory write-offs, account receivable write-offs, breach of contract accruals, employee severance, and other required expenses

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
One-Time Bonus Award
In 2023, we paid a one-time special cash bonus in the amount of $500,000 to Mr. Boakye pursuant to the terms of his offer letter. The bonus was an important part of a competitive compensation package offered to Mr. Boakye to join our company and was intended to facilitate his participation in the Deposit Share Program, although the offer letter did not require that the bonus be used for that purpose.
The Compensation Decision Process
ROLE OF OUR TALENT MANAGEMENT AND COMPENSATION COMMITTEE
The Talent Management and Compensation Committee reviews and discusses the Board’s evaluation of the Chair and Chief Executive Officer’s performance, including the progress made in implementing Cummins’ business strategy and achieving specific long- and short-term business objectives. The Committee considers those discussions and the results of the formal review to determine the compensation of our Chief Executive Officer for the coming year. The Committee Chair then informs the Board of the Committee’s decisions. Members of management do not make recommendations regarding the compensation of our Chair and Chief Executive Officer.
ROLE OF OUR CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
For other executives, including the NEOs, the Chair and Chief Executive Officer considers performance and makes individual recommendations to the Committee on base salary, annual incentive targets, and long-term incentive targets. This review occurs annually at the February Talent Management and Compensation Committee meeting, which is the first meeting of the year and provides the earliest opportunity to review and assess individual and corporate performance for the previous year.
The Talent Management and Compensation Committee evaluates each officer’s compensation relative to the market median for similar positions and considers internal equity and the experience, tenure, potential and performance of each officer and modifies and approves, as appropriate, these recommendations.
ROLE AND INDEPENDENCE OF OUR COMPENSATION CONSULTANT
For 2023, the Talent Management and Compensation Committee engaged Farient Advisors LLC, or Farient, as its independent compensation consultant to provide input and advice to the Committee. The consultant also advises the Committee on non-employee director compensation. Other than the services provided to the Committee, Farient does not provide any other services to our company. Our Committee maintains a formal process to ensure the independence of any executive compensation advisor engaged by the Committee, including consideration of all factors relevant to the advisor’s independence from management, including those factors specified by the NYSE listing rules. The Committee assessed the independence of Farient in light of those factors and concluded that Farient is an independent compensation advisor and that its work for the Committee did not raise any conflict of interest.
The Committee oversees the work of the consultant and has final authority to hire or terminate any consultant. The Committee also annually reviews structural safeguards to assure the independence of the consultant.
