provide professional advice on the Company’s executive officer compensation. Korn Ferry is retained directly by the Executive
Compensation Committee and works directly with the Executive Compensation Committee’s chairman. Korn Ferry advises on the
design of compensation arrangements and provides an independent market assessment of peer companies, using Korn Ferry’s

The Basis of Comparison
As part of their review process, Korn Ferry makes comparisons of the Company’s compensation program to two groups of
companies. The first comparison is with Korn Ferry’s proprietary Industrial Executive Compensation Report. The second comparison
is with a group of seventeen companies whose businesses are similar to Moog’s and whose revenues are reasonably comparable.
Korn Ferry reviews this peer group each year and recommends changes where appropriate.
One change to the peer group was made in fiscal 2019; Esterline Technologies was removed following their acquisition by
Esterline Technologies was replaced by Barnes Group Inc. who was selected on the basis that they operate as an industrial
and aerospace manufacturer and service provider in the United States and internationally, with revenue of a broadly comparable
level to Moog and some of the same peers cited as Moog.
The full list of peers for fiscal 2019 is shown below.
Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings, Inc.
Spirit AeroSystems, Inc.
Barnes Group Inc.
Teledyne Technologies, Inc.
Transdigm Group Incorporated
Triumph Group, Inc.
