Regulation FD Disclosure.

Petco Health and Wellness Company, Inc. (the “Company”) is evaluating in the ordinary course the opportunistic refinancing of its indebtedness. While there is no immediate need for such refinancing, and there can be no assurance that the Company will proceed with any such transaction, the Company plans to assess the financing markets and may pursue a refinancing when and if the Company deems it advisable.


Item 8.01.

Other Events.

In accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Rule 14a-8”), and the Second Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”) of the Company, the deadlines for the receipt of any stockholder proposals and director nominations to be considered at the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2021 Annual Meeting”) are set forth below.

Any stockholder proposal submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8 for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2021 Annual Meeting must be received by our Corporate Secretary at our principal executive offices no later than the close of business on March 17, 2021. Such proposals also need to comply with the Securities and Exchange Commission stockholder proposal rules, which (among other things) currently provide that to be eligible to submit a proposal, a stockholder must have continuously held at least $2,000 in market value, or 1%, of the Company’s securities entitled to vote on the proposal at the 2021 Annual Meeting, for at least one year by the date the proposal is submitted.

In addition, any stockholder seeking to nominate a director or to bring other business before the 2021 Annual Meeting outside of Rule 14a-8 under the advance notice provisions included in the Company’s Bylaws must provide timely notice, as set forth in the Bylaws. Specifically, written notice of any such proposed business or nomination must be received by our Corporate Secretary at our principal executive offices no earlier than the close of business on March 17, 2021 and no later than the close of business on April 16, 2021. Any notice of proposed business or nomination also must comply with the notice and other requirements set forth in our Bylaws and with any applicable law.

For purposes of stockholder proposals, the “close of business” shall mean 6:00 p.m. local time at the principal executive offices of the Company on any calendar day, whether or not the day is a business day.
