If you hold your shares in

instructions on your voting instruction form supplied by your bank
or broker with these proxy materials.

Can I appoint TE Connectivity officers as my proxy?
In accordance with Swiss regulations, shareholders may not appoint
company officers as proxies.
If my shares are held in “street name” by my broker, will my broker
vote my shares for me?
We recommend that you contact your broker. Your broker can give you
directions on how to instruct the broker to vote your shares. If
you have not provided instructions to the broker, your broker will
be able to vote your shares with respect to “routine” matters but
not “non-routine” matters pursuant to New York Stock Exchange
(“NYSE”) rules. We believe the following agenda items will be
considered non-routine under NYSE rules and therefore your
broker will not be able to vote your shares with respect to these
agenda items unless the broker receives appropriate instructions
from you: Agenda Item No. 1 (Election of Directors),
Agenda Item No. 2 (Election of Chairman of the Board),
Agenda Item No. 3 (Election of Members of Management
Development and Compensation Committee), Agenda
Item No. 6 (Release of the Members of the Board of
Directors and Executive Officers of TE Connectivity for Activities
During the Fiscal Year Ended September 25, 2020), Agenda
Item No. 8 (Advisory Vote to Approve Named Executive
Officer Compensation), Agenda Item No. 9 (Binding Vote to
Approve Fiscal Year 2022 Maximum Aggregate Compensation
