PROXY STATEMENT
FOR THE 2022 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

To Be Held On June 24, 2022
Q:
Why did I receive a notice regarding the availability of proxy materials on the internet?
A:
Pursuant to rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), we have elected to provide access to our proxy materials over the internet. Accordingly, we have sent you a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (the “Notice”) because the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Arlo Technologies, Inc. (sometimes referred to as “we,” “us,” the “Company” or “Arlo”) is soliciting your proxy to vote at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), including at any adjournments or postponements of the meeting. All stockholders will have the ability to access the proxy materials on the website referred to in the Notice or request to receive a printed set of the proxy materials. Instructions on how to access the proxy materials over the internet or to request a printed copy may be found in the Notice. You are invited to virtually attend the Annual Meeting to vote on the proposals described in this proxy statement. The Annual Meeting will be held virtually on June 24, 2022 at 9:30 a.m., Pacific Time. You can attend the Annual Meeting online by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ARLO2022, where you will be able to listen to the meeting live, submit questions and vote online. However, you do not need to attend the meeting to vote your shares. Instead, you may simply complete, sign and return by proxy using a proxy card that you may request or that we may elect to deliver at a later time, or follow the instructions below to submit your proxy over the telephone or through the internet.
We intend to mail the Notice on or about April 28, 2022 to all stockholders of record entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.
Q:
Will I receive any other proxy materials by mail?
A:
We may send you a proxy card, along with a second Notice, on or after May 13, 2022.
Q:
Why are we holding a virtual Annual Meeting?
A:
This year we have implemented a virtual format for our Annual Meeting, which will be conducted via live audio webcast and online stockholder tools. Given the evolving situation relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe a virtual format supports the health and well-being of our employees, advisors and stockholders, and helps to facilitate stockholder attendance by enabling stockholders to attend from any location around the world without person-to-person contact, at no cost (other than any costs associated with your internet access, such as usage charges from internet access providers and telephone companies). A virtual Annual Meeting makes it possible for more stockholders (regardless of size, resources or physical location) to have direct access to information more quickly, while saving the Company and our stockholders time and money. During the Annual Meeting, we will answer appropriate questions submitted during the Annual Meeting to the extent relevant to the business of the Annual Meeting, and as time permits.
Q:
How do I attend the Annual Meeting?
A:
The meeting will be held online on Friday June 24, 2022 at 9:30 a.m., Pacific Time. You will be able to attend and participate in the Annual Meeting online by visiting http://www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ARLO2022, where you will be able to listen to the meeting live, submit questions and vote. You will not be able to attend the

Q:
Who can vote at the Annual Meeting?
A:
Only stockholders of record at the close of business on April 26, 2022 will be entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. On this record date, there were 85,843,217 shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote. A complete list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting will be available for a period of ten days prior to the Annual Meeting at our principal executive offices located at 2200 Faraday Ave., Suite #150, Carlsbad, California 92008. In addition, the list of stockholders will also be available during the Annual Meeting on the virtual meeting site at http://www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ARLO2022.
Stockholder of Record: Shares Registered in Your Name
If, on April 26, 2022, your shares were registered directly in your name with the Company’s transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., then you are a stockholder of record. As a stockholder of record, you may vote at the Annual Meeting or vote by proxy. Whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we urge you to vote by proxy over the telephone or on the internet or vote by proxy using a proxy card that you may request or that we may elect to deliver at a later time as instructed below to ensure your vote is counted. If you submit your proxy telephonically or over the internet, you must do so no later than 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time on June 23, 2022. Stockholders who attend the virtual Annual Meeting should follow the instructions at http://www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ARLO2022 to vote online during the Annual Meeting.
Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of a Broker or Bank
If, on April 26, 2022, your shares were held, not in your name, but rather in an account at a brokerage firm, bank, dealer or other similar organization, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in “street name” and the Notice is being forwarded to you by that organization. The organization holding your account is considered to be the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the Annual Meeting. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker or other agent regarding how to vote the shares in your account. You are also invited to attend the Annual Meeting. However, since you are not the stockholder of record, you may not vote your shares at the Annual Meeting unless you request and obtain a valid proxy from your broker or other agent.
Q:
What am I voting on?
A:
There are two matters scheduled for a vote:
Proposal One: Election of the two Class I directors named herein to hold office until the 2025 annual meeting of stockholders; and
Proposal Two: Ratification of the selection by the Audit Committee of the Board (the “Audit Committee”) of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the independent registered public accounting firm of the Company for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THESE PROXY MATERIALS AND VOTING
  
Q:
What if another matter is properly brought before the Annual Meeting?
A:
The Board knows of no other matters that will be presented for consideration at the Annual Meeting. If any other matters are properly brought before the Annual Meeting, it is the intention of the persons named in the accompanying proxy to vote on those matters in accordance with their best judgment.
Q:
How do I vote?
A:
You may either vote “For” all the nominees to the Board or you may “Withhold” your vote for any nominee you specify. For the other matter to be voted on, you may vote “For” or “Against” or abstain from voting.
The procedures for voting are as follows:
Stockholder of Record: Shares Registered in Your Name
If you are a stockholder of record, you may vote online at the Annual Meeting, vote by proxy over the telephone, vote by proxy through the internet or vote by proxy using a proxy card that you may request or that we may elect to deliver at a later time. Whether or not you plan to attend the virtual Annual Meeting, we urge you to vote by proxy to ensure your vote is counted. You may still attend the virtual Annual Meeting and vote online even if you have already voted by proxy.
VOTE ONLINE AT THE ANNUAL MEETING: To vote online during the virtual Annual Meeting, please go to http://www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/ARLO2022. You will be asked to provide the 16-digit control number included on your Notice. Once you have logged into the virtual Annual Meeting, please follow the instructions to vote your shares. If you do not have your 16-digit control number, you will be able to access and listen to the Annual Meeting but you will not be able to vote your shares or submit questions.
VOTE BY PHONE: To vote over the telephone, dial toll-free 1-800-690-6903 using any touch-tone telephone and follow the recorded instructions. You will be asked to provide the control number from the Notice. Your telephone vote must be received by 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time on June 23, 2022 to be counted.
VOTE BY INTERNET: You may vote by completing an electronic proxy card at www.proxyvote.com. You will be asked to provide the control number from the Notice. Your internet vote must be received by 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time on June 23, 2022 to be counted. We provide internet proxy voting to allow you to vote your shares online, with procedures designed to ensure the authenticity and correctness of your proxy vote instructions. However, please be aware that you must bear any costs associated with your internet access, such as usage charges from internet access providers and telephone companies.
VOTE BY PROXY CARD: To vote using a proxy card, simply complete, sign and date the proxy card that may be delivered and return it promptly in the envelope provided. If you return your signed proxy card to us before the Annual Meeting, we will vote your shares as you direct.
Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of Broker or Bank
If you are a beneficial owner of shares registered in the name of your brokerage firm, bank, dealer or other agent, you should have received a Notice containing voting instructions from that organization rather than from Arlo. Simply follow the voting instructions in the Notice to ensure that your vote is counted. To vote at the Annual Meeting, you must obtain a valid proxy from your brokerage firm, bank, dealer or other agent. Follow the instructions from your broker or bank, or contact your broker or bank to request a proxy form.
Q:
How many votes do I have?
A:
On each matter to be voted upon, you have one vote for each share of common stock you own as of the close of business on April 26, 2022.
Q:
If I am a stockholder of record and I do not vote, or if I return a proxy card or otherwise vote without giving specific voting instructions, what happens?
A:
If you are a stockholder of record and do not vote by completing your proxy card, by telephone, through the internet or online at the Annual Meeting, your shares will not be voted.

Arlo Technologies, Inc. Notice of 2022 Annual Meeting and Proxy Statement 3

TABLE OF CONTENTS

If you return a signed and dated proxy card or otherwise vote without marking voting selections, your shares will be voted, as applicable, “For” the election of all of the nominees for Class I directors and “For” the ratification of the selection by the Audit Committee of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the independent registered public accounting firm of the Company for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022. If any other matter is properly presented at the meeting, your proxy holder (one of the individuals named on your proxy card) will vote your shares using his or her best judgment.
Q:
If I am a beneficial owner of shares held in street name and I do not provide my broker or bank with voting instructions, what happens?
A:
If you are a beneficial owner and do not instruct your brokerage firm, bank, dealer or other agent how to vote your shares, the question of whether your broker or nominee will still be able to vote your shares depends on whether the particular proposal is considered to be a routine matter under applicable rules. Under the rules of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), brokers, banks and other intermediaries that are subject to NYSE rules may use their discretion to vote your “uninstructed” shares with respect to matters considered to be “routine” under NYSE rules, but not with respect to “non-routine” matters. Under applicable NYSE rules and interpretations, non-routine matters are matters that may substantially affect the rights or privileges of stockholders, such as mergers, stockholder proposals, elections of directors (even if not contested), executive compensation (including any advisory stockholder votes on executive compensation and on the frequency of stockholder votes on executive compensation), and certain corporate governance proposals, even if management-supported. Accordingly, without your instructions, your broker or nominee may not vote your shares on Proposal One, but may vote your shares on Proposal Two.
If you are a beneficial owner of shares held in street name, in order to ensure your shares are voted in the way you would prefer, you must provide voting instructions to your broker, bank or other agent by the deadline provided in the materials you receive from your broker, bank or other agent.
Q:
Who is paying for this proxy solicitation?
A:
Arlo will pay for the entire cost of soliciting proxies. In addition to these proxy materials, Arlo’s directors and employees may also solicit proxies in person, by telephone, or by other means of communication. Directors and employees will not be paid any additional compensation for soliciting proxies. We may also reimburse brokerage firms, banks, dealers or other agents for the cost of forwarding proxy materials to beneficial owners.
Q:
What does it mean if I receive more than one Notice?
A:
If you receive more than one Notice, your shares may be registered in more than one name or in different accounts. Please follow the voting instructions on the Notice to ensure that all of your shares are voted.
Q:
Can I change my vote after submitting my proxy?
A:
Stockholder of Record: Shares Registered in Your Name
Yes. You can revoke your proxy at any time before the final vote at the Annual Meeting. If you are the record holder of your shares, you may revoke your proxy in any one of the following ways:
You may submit another properly completed proxy card with a later date.
You may grant a subsequent proxy by telephone or through the internet.
You may send a timely written notice that you are revoking your proxy to Arlo’s Secretary at 2200 Faraday Ave., Suite #150, Carlsbad, California 92008.
You may attend the virtual Annual Meeting and vote online at that time. Simply attending the Annual Meeting will not, by itself, revoke your proxy.
Your most recent proxy card or telephone or internet proxy is the one that is counted.
Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of Broker or Bank
If your shares are held by your brokerage firm, bank, dealer or other agent as a nominee, you should follow the instructions provided by your broker or bank.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THESE PROXY MATERIALS AND VOTING
  
Q:
When are stockholder proposals and director nominations due for next year’s annual meeting?
A:
To be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for next year’s annual meeting, your proposal must be submitted in writing by December 29, 2022, to the attention of the Secretary of Arlo, 2200 Faraday Ave., Suite #150, Carlsbad, California 92008. If we hold next year’s annual meeting more than 30 days before or after June 24, 2023 (the one-year anniversary date of the Annual Meeting), we will disclose the new deadline by which stockholder proposals must be received to be considered for inclusion in our proxy statement for that annual meeting under Item 5 of Part II of our earliest possible Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or, if impracticable, by any means reasonably determined to inform stockholders. Stockholder proposals are subject to applicable rules under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. The timely submission of such a proposal (including a director nomination) does not guarantee its inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials. In addition, the Company’s amended and restated bylaws establish an advance notice procedure for stockholders who wish to bring forth a proposal, including a director nomination, before an annual meeting of stockholders but which are not included in the Company’s proxy statement. If you wish to submit such a proposal (including a director nomination) that is to be brought before next year’s annual meeting, you must do so between January 25, 2023 and February 24, 2023. In the event that no annual meeting was held in the previous year or the date of the annual meeting has been changed by more than thirty (30) days from the date contemplated at the time of the previous year’s proxy statement, notice by the stockholder to must be received by the Company not later than the close of business on the tenth (10th) day following the day notice of the date of the meeting was mailed or public disclosure was made, whichever occurs first. You are also advised to review the Company’s amended and restated bylaws, which contain additional requirements relating to advance notice of stockholder proposals and director nominations. The timely submission of such a proposal (including a director nomination) does not guarantee it will be brought before the annual meeting.
In addition to satisfying the foregoing requirements under our bylaws, to comply with the universal proxy rules (once effective), stockholders who intend to solicit proxies in support of director nominees other than the Board’s nominees must provide notice that sets forth any additional information required by Rule 14a-19 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, no later than April 25, 2023.
Q:
What are “broker non-votes”?
A:
When a beneficial owner of shares held in “street name” does not give instructions to the brokerage firm, bank, dealer or other agent holding the shares as to how to vote on matters deemed to be non-routine under applicable rules, the broker or nominee cannot vote the shares. These unvoted shares are counted as “broker non-votes.”
Q:
How are votes counted?
A:
Votes will be counted by the inspector of election appointed for the Annual Meeting, who will separately count, for the proposal to elect directors, votes “For,” “Withhold” and broker non-votes; and, for the proposal to ratify the Audit Committee’s selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as our independent public accounting firm, votes “For” and “Against,” abstentions and, if applicable, broker non-votes. Abstentions will have no effect on Proposal One. Abstentions will be counted towards the vote total for Proposal Two and will have the same effect as “Against” votes. Broker non-votes will be counted towards the presence of a quorum but will not be counted towards the vote total for any proposal.
As a reminder, if you are a beneficial owner of shares held in street name, in order to ensure your shares are voted in the way you would prefer, you must provide voting instructions to your broker, bank or other agent by the deadline provided in the materials you receive from your broker, bank or other agent.
Q:
How many votes are needed to approve each proposal?
A:    
For Proposal One, the election of directors, the two nominees receiving the most “For” votes from the holders of shares present or represented by proxy and entitled to vote on the election of directors will be elected. Only votes “For” will affect the outcome. While “Withhold” votes and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of the vote, we have adopted a Majority Voting in Uncontested Elections Policy pursuant to which any nominee for director at the Annual Meeting would be required to submit an offer of resignation for consideration by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee if

Arlo Technologies, Inc. Notice of 2022 Annual Meeting and Proxy Statement 5

TABLE OF CONTENTS

such nominee for director receives a greater number of “Withhold” votes than votes “For” such election. For more information on this policy see the section titled “Information Regarding the Board of Directors and Corporate Governance—Corporate Governance Guidelines.”
To be approved, Proposal Two, the ratification of the selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for its fiscal year ending December 31, 2022, must receive “For” votes from the holders of a majority of shares present or represented by proxy and entitled to vote on the matter. If you “Abstain” from voting, it will have the same effect as an “Against” vote. Broker non-votes, if any, will have no effect.
Q:
What is the quorum requirement?
A:
A quorum of stockholders is necessary to hold the Annual Meeting. A quorum will be present if stockholders holding at least a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote are present at the virtual Annual Meeting or represented by proxy. On the record date, there were 85,843,217 shares outstanding and entitled to vote. Thus, the holders of 42,921,610 shares must be present in person or represented by proxy at the virtual Annual Meeting to have a quorum.
Your shares will be counted towards the quorum only if you submit a valid proxy (or one is submitted on your behalf by your brokerage firm, bank, dealer or other agent) or if you vote at the virtual Annual Meeting. Abstentions and broker non-votes will be counted towards the quorum requirement. If there is no quorum, the holders of a majority of shares present at the Annual Meeting or represented by proxy may adjourn the Annual Meeting to another date.
Q:
How can I find out the results of the voting at the Annual Meeting?
A:
Preliminary voting results will be announced at the Annual Meeting. In addition, final voting results will be published in a Current Report on Form 8-K that we expect to file with the SEC within four business days after the Annual Meeting. If final voting results are not available to us in time to file a Current Report on Form 8-K within four business days after the Annual Meeting, we intend to file a Current Report on Form 8-K to publish preliminary results and, within four business days after the final results are known to us, file an additional Current Report on Form 8-K to publish the final results.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

PROPOSAL ONE
ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
The Board is divided into three classes. Each class consists, as nearly as possible, of one-third of the total number of directors, and each class has a three-year term. Vacancies on the Board may be filled only by persons elected by a majority of the remaining directors. A director elected by the Board to fill a vacancy in a class, including vacancies created by an increase in the number of directors, shall serve for the remainder of the full term of that class and until the director’s successor is duly elected and qualified.
The Board presently has seven members. There are two Class I directors whose term of office expires in 2022: Ralph Faison and Jocelyn Carter-Miller. Mr. Faison and Ms. Carter-Miller were previously elected by the stockholders. Proxies may not be voted for a greater number of persons than the number of nominees named in this Proxy Statement, which is two. Mr. Faison and Ms. Carter-Miller, both current directors of the Company, were each recommended for nomination to the Board at the Annual Meeting by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board (the “Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee”). If elected at the Annual Meeting, Mr. Faison and Ms. Carter-Miller would each serve until the 2025 Annual Meeting of Stockholders or until his or her successor has been duly elected and qualified, or, if sooner, until his or her death, resignation or removal. It is our policy to invite directors and nominees for director to attend the Annual Meeting. All of our directors attended our 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
Directors are elected at the Annual Meeting by a plurality of the votes of the holders of shares present or represented by proxy and entitled to vote on the election of directors. Because we have not received notice from any stockholders that they intend to nominate candidates for election as directors at the Annual Meeting, we expect that the Company’s nominees will be elected at the Annual Meeting. However, the Board has adopted a Majority Voting in Uncontested Elections Policy pursuant to which any nominee for director at the Annual Meeting would be required to submit an offer of resignation for consideration by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee if such nominee for director receives a greater number of “Withhold” votes than votes “For” such election. For more information on this policy see the section titled “Information Regarding the Board of Directors and Corporate Governance—Corporate Governance Guidelines.”
Board Diversity
We believe our Board reflects diverse perspectives, including with respect to skills, experience, and backgrounds, that represent the interests of our stakeholders. Three members of our Board are women and two self-identify as being from an underrepresented community. In addition, our Board members have a broad range of experience in industries such as technology, telecommunications, and finance. Four of our Board members currently have, or have had, experience serving on the boards of directors of public companies.
Nominees
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee seeks to assemble a Board that, as a whole, possesses the appropriate balance of professional and industry knowledge, financial expertise and high-level management experience necessary to oversee and direct the Company’s business. To that end, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has identified and evaluated nominees in the broader context of the Board’s overall composition, with the goal of recruiting members who complement and strengthen the skills of other members and who also exhibit integrity, collegiality, sound business judgment and other qualities that the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee views as critical to effective functioning of the Board. The brief biographies below include information, as of the date of this Proxy Statement, regarding the specific and particular experience, qualifications, attributes or skills of each director or nominee that led the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee to believe that that nominee should continue to serve on the Board. However, each of the members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may have a variety of reasons why such member believes a particular person would be an appropriate nominee for the Board, and these views may differ from the views of other members.

INFORMATION REGARDING THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
Overview
Arlo combines an intelligent cloud infrastructure and mobile app with a variety of smart connected devices that is transforming the way people experience the connected lifestyle. Arlo’s deep expertise in product design, wireless connectivity, cloud infrastructure and cutting-edge AI capabilities focuses on delivering a seamless, smart home experience for Arlo users that is easy to setup and interact with every day. Our cloud-based platform provides users with visibility, insight and a powerful means to help protect and connect in real-time with the people and things that matter most, from any location with a Wi-Fi or a cellular connection. To date, we have launched several categories of award-winning smart connected devices, including wired and wire-free smart Wi-Fi and LTE-enabled cameras, audio and video doorbells, and floodlight cameras. In addition, Arlo’s broad compatibility allows the platform to seamlessly integrate with third-party internet-of-things (“IoT”) products and protocols, such as Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Apple TV, Google Assistant, IFTTT, Stringify and Samsung SmartThings. Since the launch of our first product in December 2014, we have shipped over 22.9 million smart connected devices, and, as of December 31, 2021, our smart platform had approximately 6.1 million cumulative registered accounts across more than 100 countries around the world.
Arlo was incorporated in Delaware on January 5, 2018, as a wholly owned subsidiary of NETGEAR. On February 6, 2018, NETGEAR announced the separation of its Arlo business from NETGEAR to be effected through an initial public offering (the “IPO”) of newly issued shares of the common stock of Arlo. On July 6, 2018, the Company filed a registration statement relating to the IPO of common stock of Arlo with the SEC. Following a series of restructuring steps prior to the completion of the IPO of Arlo common stock, the Arlo business was transferred from NETGEAR to Arlo.
On November 29, 2018, NETGEAR announced that its board of directors had approved a special stock dividend (the “Distribution”) to NETGEAR stockholders of the 62,500,000 shares of Arlo common stock owned by NETGEAR. The Distribution was made on December 31, 2018 to all NETGEAR stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 17, 2018 (the “Distribution Record Date”). In the Distribution, each NETGEAR stockholder of record on the Distribution Record Date received 1.980295 shares of Arlo common stock for every share of NETGEAR common stock held on the Distribution Record Date. In connection with the Distribution, 62,500,000 shares of Arlo common stock held by NETGEAR were distributed to its stockholders and NETGEAR is no longer considered a related party to the Company.
Independence of the Board of Directors
As required under the NYSE listing standards, a majority of the members of a listed company’s board of directors must qualify as “independent,” as affirmatively determined by the board of directors. Our Board consults with the Company’s counsel to ensure that the Board’s determinations are consistent with relevant securities and other laws and regulations regarding the definition of “independent,” including those set forth in pertinent listing standards of NYSE, as in effect from time to time.
Consistent with these considerations, after review of all relevant identified transactions or relationships between each director, or any of his or her family members, and the Company, its senior management and its independent auditors, the Board has affirmatively determined that the following six directors are independent directors under the applicable rules of the NYSE: Mses. Carter-Miller, Rothstein and Fallon and Messrs. Faison, Summers and Aggarwal. In making this determination, the Board found that none of our directors had a material or other disqualifying relationship with the Company. Mr. McRae is not considered independent because he is an executive officer of the Company.

Board Leadership Structure
The Board has an independent Chair, Mr. Faison, who has authority to call and preside over Board meetings, to set meeting agendas and to determine materials to be distributed to the Board, among other things. Accordingly, the Chair has substantial ability to shape the work of the Board. We believe that separation of the positions of Chair and Chief Executive Officer reinforces the independence of the Board in its oversight of our business and affairs. In addition, we have a separate chair for each committee of the Board. The chair of each committee is expected to report to the Board from time to time, or whenever so requested by the Board, on the activities of his or her committee in fulfilling that chair's responsibilities as detailed in its respective committee charter or specify any shortcomings should that be the case. In addition, we believe that having a separate Chair creates an environment that is more conducive to objective evaluation and oversight of management’s performance, increasing management accountability and improving the ability of the Board to monitor whether or not management’s actions are in the best interests of us and our stockholders. As a result, we believe that having a separate Chair can enhance the effectiveness of the Board as a whole.
Role of the Board in Risk Oversight
One of the Board’s key functions is informed oversight of the Company’s risk management process. The Board does not have a standing risk management committee, but rather administers this oversight function directly through the Board as a whole, as well as through various Board standing committees that address risks inherent in their respective areas of oversight. In particular, our Board is responsible for monitoring and assessing strategic risk exposure, including a determination of the nature and level of risk appropriate for the Company. The Audit Committee has the responsibility to consider and discuss our major financial risk exposures and the steps our management has taken to monitor and control these exposures, including guidelines and policies to govern the process by which risk assessment and management is undertaken. The Audit Committee also monitors compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, in addition to oversight of the performance of our internal audit function. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee monitors the effectiveness of our corporate governance guidelines, including whether they are successful in preventing illegal or improper liability-creating conduct. The Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Compensation Committee”) assesses and monitors whether any of our compensation policies and programs has the potential to encourage excessive risk-taking. The Cybersecurity and Privacy Committee of the Board (the “Cybersecurity and Privacy Committee”) has the responsibility to oversee cybersecurity risk management.
Typically, the applicable Board committees meet at least annually with the employees responsible for risk management in the committees’ respective areas of oversight. It is the responsibility of the committee chairs to report findings regarding material risk exposures to the Board as quickly as possible.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have and may in the future experience disruptions that could severely impact our business. Given the evolving nature of the pandemic, our senior management and our Board of Directors are communicating more frequently to monitor potential business impacts and further strategic planning.
Meetings of the Board of Directors
The Board met seven times (including regularly scheduled and special meetings) and acted by unanimous written consent five times during 2021. All directors attended at least 75% of the aggregate number of meetings of the Board and of the committees on which they served in 2021 during the period in which he or she served on our Board or the respective committees of our Board.
In fiscal year 2021, the Company’s independent directors met four times in an executive session at which Mr. Faison presided and only independent directors were present.

Audit Committee
The Audit Committee was established by the Board in accordance with Section 3(a)(58)(A) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), to oversee the Company’s corporate accounting and financial reporting processes, internal controls, independent auditor relationships, and audits of its financial statements. For this purpose, the Audit Committee performs several functions, including, among other things:
overseeing management’s establishment and maintenance of adequate systems of internal controls over financial reporting;
overseeing our legal and regulatory compliance programs;
reviewing and assessing management's policies and processes for monitoring and controlling our financial risk exposures;
overseeing our financial reporting process, including the filing of financial reports; and
selecting independent auditors, evaluating their independence and performance and approving audit fees and terms.
The Audit Committee is composed of five directors: Mses. Carter-Miller, Rothstein and Fallon and Messrs. Summers and Aggarwal. Ms. Rothstein was appointed as a member of the Audit Committee in June 2021. Ms. Fallon was appointed as the Chair of the Audit Committee in August 2021. The Board has adopted a written Audit Committee charter that is available to stockholders on the Company’s “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s website at www.arlo.com. The information on our website is not incorporated by reference into this Proxy Statement or our Annual Report.
The Board reviews the NYSE listing standards definition of independence for Audit Committee members on an annual basis and has determined that all members of the Company’s Audit Committee are independent (as independence is currently defined in Section 303A.07(a) of the NYSE Listed Company Manual).

The Board has also determined that Ms. Fallon and Mr. Aggarwal qualify as “audit committee financial experts,” as defined in applicable SEC rules. The Board made a qualitative assessment of Ms. Fallon's and Mr. Aggarwal’s level of knowledge and experience based on a number of factors, including their formal education and previous and current experience in financial roles.
Report of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors*
The Audit Committee has reviewed and discussed the audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 with management of the Company. The Audit Committee has discussed with the independent registered public accounting firm the matters required to be discussed by the applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”) and the SEC. The Audit Committee has also received the written disclosures and the letter from the independent registered public accounting firm required by applicable requirements of the PCAOB regarding the independent registered public accounting firm’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence, and has discussed with the independent registered public accounting firm the accounting firm’s independence. Based on the foregoing, the Audit Committee has recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited financial statements be included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

Compensation Committee
The Compensation Committee is composed of three directors: Messrs. Faison and Aggarwal and Ms. Carter-Miller. Ms. Carter-Miller is the Chair of the Compensation Committee. Our Board has determined that each of the members of our Compensation Committee are independent (as independence is currently defined in NYSE Listed Company Manual Section 303A.02 as applied to compensation committee members), and is a non-employee director, as defined in Rule 16b-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act, and is an outside director, as defined pursuant to Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). The Board has adopted a written Compensation Committee charter that is available to stockholders on the Company’s “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s website at www.arlo.com. The information on our website is not incorporated by reference into this Proxy Statement or our Annual Report.
The Compensation Committee acts on behalf of the Board to review, adopt or recommend to the Board for adoption, and oversee the Company’s compensation strategy, policies, plans and programs. For this purpose, the Compensation Committee performs several functions, including, among other things:
reviewing and recommending to the Board our executive compensation programs and arrangements;
reviewing and approving (or, if it deems appropriate, making recommendations to the Board) the corporate goals and objectives relevant to the compensation of our executive officers, evaluating performance in light thereof and considering factors related to our performance and the accomplishment of our long-term business and financial goals;
providing oversight of our overall compensation goals and guidelines for our employees;
evaluating the competitiveness of the compensation of our executive officers and our overall compensation plans; and
overseeing the administration of our compensation plans.
Compensation Committee Processes and Procedures
Typically, the Compensation Committee meets at least quarterly and with greater frequency, if necessary. The agenda for each meeting is usually developed by the Chair of the Compensation Committee, in consultation with management. The Compensation Committee meets regularly in executive session. However, from time to time, various members of management and other employees as well as outside advisors or consultants may be invited by the Compensation Committee to make presentations, to provide financial or other background information or advice or to otherwise participate in Compensation Committee meetings. The Chief Executive Officer does not participate in, and is not present during, any deliberations or determinations of the Compensation Committee regarding his compensation or individual performance objectives. The charter of the Compensation Committee grants the Compensation Committee the authority to retain and obtain, at the expense of the Company, advice and assistance from a compensation consultant, legal counsel or other advisers that the Compensation Committee considers necessary to assist the Compensation Committee in the performance of its duties and responsibilities as set forth in the charter of the Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee has direct responsibility for the oversight of the work of any advisers engaged for the purpose of advising the Compensation Committee. In particular, the Compensation Committee has the sole authority to retain compensation consultants to assist in its evaluation of executive and director compensation, including the authority to approve the consultant’s reasonable fees and other retention terms. Under its charter, the Compensation Committee may form and delegate authority to subcommittees as appropriate, and, to the extent required by SEC and NYSE rules, the Compensation Committee may select, or receive advice from, a compensation consultant, legal counsel or other adviser to the Compensation Committee, other than in-house legal counsel and certain other types of advisers, only after taking into consideration six factors, prescribed by the SEC and NYSE, that bear upon the adviser’s independence; however, there is no requirement that any adviser be independent.
The Compensation Committee engaged Compensia, Inc. (“Compensia”) as its compensation consultant. Compensia was retained to provide an assessment of the Company’s executive and director compensation programs in comparison to executive and director compensation programs at selected publicly-traded peer companies. As part of its engagement, Compensia was requested by the Compensation Committee to develop the peer group of comparative companies and to perform analyses of compensation levels for that group. Compensia developed peer

group and related recommendations that were presented to the Compensation Committee for its consideration. During the period of January 2021 to December 2021, Compensia billed the Company approximately $51,893 for compensation consulting services.
The Compensation Committee holds one or more meetings during the first quarter of the year to discuss and make recommendations to the Board for annual compensation adjustments, annual bonuses, annual equity awards, and new corporate performance objectives. However, the Compensation Committee also considers matters related to individual compensation, such as compensation for new executive hires, as well as high-level strategic issues, such as the efficacy of the Company’s compensation strategy, potential modifications to that strategy and new trends, plans or approaches to compensation, at various meetings throughout the year. Generally, the Compensation Committee’s process comprises two related elements: the determination of compensation levels and the establishment of performance objectives for the current year. For executives other than the Chief Executive Officer, the Compensation Committee solicits and considers evaluations and recommendations submitted to the Compensation Committee by the Chief Executive Officer. In the case of the Chief Executive Officer, the evaluation of his performance is conducted by the Compensation Committee, which determines recommendations to the Board regarding any adjustments to his compensation as well as awards to be granted. For all executives and directors as part of its deliberations, the Compensation Committee may review and consider, as appropriate, materials such as financial reports and projections, operational data, executive and director stock ownership information, company stock performance data, analyses of historical executive compensation levels and current Company-wide compensation levels, compensation data from comparative companies, compensation surveys, and recommendations of any compensation consultant.
Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation
As stated above, the Compensation Committee currently consists of Messrs. Faison and Aggarwal and Ms. Carter-Miller. No member of the Compensation Committee has ever been an officer or employee of Arlo. None of our executive officers currently serves, or has served during the last completed fiscal year, on our Compensation Committee or board of directors of any other entity that has one or more executive officers serving as a member of our Board or Compensation Committee.
Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for identifying, reviewing and evaluating candidates to serve as directors of the Company (consistent with criteria approved by the Board), reviewing and evaluating incumbent directors, selecting or recommending to the Board for selection candidates for election to the Board, making recommendations to the Board regarding the membership of the committees of the Board, assessing the performance of the Board, and developing a set of corporate governance principles for the Company.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is composed of three directors: Messrs. Faison and Aggarwal and Ms. Rothstein. Mr. Faison is the Chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. Each of the members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee are independent (as independence is currently defined in NYSE Listed Company Manual Section 303A.02). The Board has adopted a written Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee charter that is available to stockholders on the Company’s “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s website at www.arlo.com. The information on our website is not incorporated by reference into this Proxy Statement or our Annual Report. The functions of this committee include, among other things:
recommending nominees for our Board and its committees;
recommending the size and composition of our Board and its committees;
reviewing and considering the Company’s position and practices on significant issues of corporate public responsibility such as workforce diversity, protection of the environment, and philanthropic and political contributions;
reviewing our corporate governance guidelines, corporate charters and proposed amendments to our certificate of incorporation and bylaws;

annually reviewing the Company’s succession planning process for members of our executive management team, and working with our Board in evaluating potential successors for these roles; and
reviewing and making recommendations to address stockholder proposals.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee believes that candidates for director should have certain minimum qualifications, including the ability to read and understand basic financial statements, being over 21 years of age and having the highest personal integrity and ethics. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee also intends to consider such factors as possessing relevant expertise upon which to be able to offer advice and guidance to management, having sufficient time to devote to the affairs of the Company, demonstrated excellence in his or her field, having the ability to exercise sound business judgment and having the commitment to rigorously represent the long-term interests of the Company’s stockholders. However, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee retains the right to modify these qualifications from time to time. Candidates for director nominees are reviewed in the context of the current composition of the Board, the operating requirements of the Company and the long-term interests of stockholders. In conducting this assessment, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee typically considers diversity (including with respect to age and gender), age, skills and such other factors as it deems appropriate, given the current needs of the Board and the Company, to maintain a balance of knowledge, experience and capability. Although the Company does not have a formal policy on Board diversity, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee takes into account a broad range of diversity considerations when assessing director candidates, including individual backgrounds and skill sets, professional experience and other factors that contribute to our Board having an appropriate range of expertise, talents, experiences and viewpoints, and considers those diversity considerations, in view of the needs of the Board as a whole, when making decisions on director nominations.
In the case of incumbent directors whose terms of office are set to expire, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee reviews these directors’ overall service to the Company during their terms, including the number of meetings attended, level of participation, quality of performance and any other relationships and transactions that might impair the directors’ independence. In the case of new director candidates, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee also determines whether the nominee is independent for NYSE purposes, which determination is based upon applicable NYSE listing standards, applicable SEC rules and regulations and the advice of counsel, if necessary. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee then uses its network of contacts to compile a list of potential candidates, but may also engage, if it deems appropriate, a professional search firm. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee conducts any appropriate and necessary inquiries into the backgrounds and qualifications of possible candidates after considering the function and needs of the Board. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee meets to discuss and consider the candidates’ qualifications and then selects a nominee for recommendation to the Board by majority vote.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will consider director candidates recommended by stockholders. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee does not intend to alter the manner in which it evaluates candidates, including the minimum criteria set forth above, based on whether or not the candidate was recommended by a stockholder. Stockholders who wish to recommend individuals for consideration by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee to become nominees for election to the Board may do so by delivering a written recommendation to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee at the following address: c/o Arlo Technologies, Inc., 2200 Faraday Ave., Suite #150, Carlsbad, California 92008, Attn: Secretary, no later than the close of business on the 120th day nor earlier than the close of business on the 150th day prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting. Submissions must include the name and address of the Company stockholder on whose behalf the submission is made; the number of Company shares that are owned beneficially by such stockholder as of the date of the submission; the full name of the proposed candidate; a description of the proposed candidate’s business experience for at least the previous five years; complete biographical information for the proposed candidate; and a description of the proposed candidate’s qualifications as a director. Any such submission must be accompanied by the written consent of the proposed nominee to be named as a nominee and to serve as a director if elected.

Corporate Governance Guidelines
The Board documented the governance practices followed by the Company by adopting corporate governance guidelines to assure that the Board will have the necessary authority and practices in place to review and evaluate the Company’s business operations as needed and to make decisions that are independent of the Company’s management. The corporate governance guidelines are also intended to align the interests of directors and management with those of the Company’s stockholders. The corporate governance guidelines set forth the practices the Board intends to follow with respect to board composition and selection including diversity, board meetings and involvement of senior management, Chief Executive Officer performance evaluation and succession planning, and board committees and compensation. The corporate governance guidelines include a Majority Voting in Uncontested Elections Policy pursuant to which any nominee for director is required to submit an offer of resignation for consideration by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee if such nominee for director (in an uncontested election) receives a greater number of “Withhold” votes than votes “For” such election. In such case, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will then consider all of the relevant facts and circumstances and recommend to the Board the action to be taken with respect to such offer of resignation. The Board will then act on the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee’s recommendation. Promptly following the Board’s decision, we would disclose that decision and an explanation of such decision in a filing with the SEC or a press release.

PROPOSAL TWO
RATIFICATION OF APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
The Audit Committee has selected PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022 and has further directed that management submit the selection of its independent registered public accounting firm for ratification by the stockholders at the Annual Meeting. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP has audited the Company’s financial statements since 2018. Representatives of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP are expected to be present at the Annual Meeting.

The charter of the Audit Committee requires the Audit Committee to submit its selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to the Company’s stockholders for their non-binding ratification. If the stockholders fail to ratify the selection, the Audit Committee will reconsider whether or not to retain that firm. Even if the selection is ratified, the Audit Committee in its discretion may direct the appointment of different independent auditors at any time during the year if they determine that such a change would be in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.
The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares present or represented by proxy and entitled to vote on the matter at the Annual Meeting will be required to ratify the selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

Pre-Approval Policies and Procedures
Our Audit Committee has adopted a policy and procedures for the pre-approval of audit and non-audit services rendered by our independent registered public accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. The policy generally pre-approves specified services in the defined categories of audit services, audit-related services and tax services up to specified amounts. Pre-approval may also be given as part of our Audit Committee’s approval of the scope of the engagement of the independent auditor or on an individual, explicit, case-by-case basis before the independent auditor is engaged to provide each service. The pre-approval of services may be delegated to one or more of our Audit Committee members, but the decision must be reported to the full Audit Committee at its next scheduled meeting.
Our Audit Committee has determined that the rendering of services other than audit services by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is compatible with maintaining the principal accountant’s independence.

The amounts reported in this column represent the aggregate grant date fair value of the RSUs, PSUs and TSR MPSUs and the CEO MPSUs (each as defined below under “Equity-Based Incentives”) granted to our named executive officers during 2021, as determined in accordance with the share-based payment accounting guidance under FASB ASC 718 (without regard to estimates of forfeitures). The grant date fair value of the 2021 PSUs reflected in the table above is based on the probable outcome of the applicable performance conditions, as

determined under FASB ASC 718, which was $1,129,132, $335,458 and $161,515 for Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse, respectively. The maximum number of 2021 PSUs that the NEOs earned based on actual performance during 2021, as of December 31, 2021, is 120% of the target number of the PSUs. The corresponding grant date fair value of such PSUs, calculated assuming achievement of the maximum level of performance under the applicable performance conditions, would be $1,354,958, $402,550 and $193,818 for Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse, respectively. The grant date fair value of the TSR MPSUs reflected in the table above is calculated using a Monte Carlo simulation model based on the probability of achieving the market-based performance goals, as determined under FASB ASC 718, which was $1,616,774, $480,334 and $231,269 for Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse, respectively. The maximum number of TSR MPSUs that the NEOs can earn is 200% of the target number of the TSR MPSUs. The corresponding grant date fair value of the TSR MPSUs, calculating assuming achievement of the maximum level of performance under the applicable performance conditions would be $2,258,264, $670,916 and $323,030 for Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse, respectively. Refer to Note 12 in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in Item 8 of Part II of the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 for the assumptions used to estimate fair value at the grant date and the “Equity-Based Incentive” section below for details about the PSUs and TSR MPSUs grants.
(2)
In addition to the RSUs, PSUs and TSR MPSUs described in (i), in 2021 we also granted to our CEO restricted stock units that vest based on the Company's achievement of certain stock price performance targets and the CEO's continued employment through the vesting dates (“CEO MPSUs”). The CEO MPSUs will vest as described below under “Equity-Based Incentives”. Refer to “Outstanding Equity Awards at Fiscal Year-End” section below for more details. The grant date fair value of the CEO MPSU reflected in the table above is calculated using a Monte Carlo simulation model based on the probability of achieving the market-based performance goals, as determined under FASB ASC 718, which was $3,950,126, and the grant date fair value of the CEO MPSUs, calculated assuming achievement of the maximum level of performance was $4,757,728. On December 1, 2021 and December 29, 2021, the stock price performance targets for the first and second tranches were achieved, respectively.
(3)
The amount for 2021 represents amounts earned under our 2021 executive bonus plan, which were paid in the form of fully-vested RSUs in March 2022. Each of Messrs. McRae, Mattingly, and Busse have a target bonus equal to 100%, 70%, and 50% of their respective annual base salary.

Consists of matching contributions under Arlo's 401(k) plan that were earned in 2020 and 2021 and paid in January 2021 and 2022, respectively. Refer to the “401(k) Plan” section below for more details.

Mr. McRae received a benefits waiver of $1,200 during 2020 and 2021, respectively. Refer to the “Perquisites Health, Welfare and Retirement Benefits” section below for more details.
Compensation Program Overview
Our compensation program for executive officers is designed to encourage our management team to continually achieve our short-term and long-term corporate objectives while effectively managing business risks and challenges. We provide what we believe is a competitive total compensation package to our management team through a combination of base salary, an annual performance-based bonus and long-term equity-based incentives.
The compensation of our named executive officers, including our chief executive officer, is generally reviewed by our Compensation Committee and approved by the independent members of the Board.
Annual Base Salary
The 2021 annual base salaries for our named executive officers are provided below:
Name
Base Salary
Matthew McRae
$750,000
Gordon Mattingly
$383,000
Brian Busse
$350,000
Performance Bonus Compensation
In addition to base salaries, our named executive officers are eligible to receive annual performance-based bonuses, which are designed to provide appropriate incentives to our executives to achieve defined annual corporate goals and to reward our executives for achievement towards these goals. The annual performance-based bonus that each named executive officer is eligible to receive is generally based on the extent to which we achieve the corporate goals the Board or our Compensation Committee establishes each year. Based on achieving the performance goals, Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse have the opportunity to earn a target annual performance bonus equal to 100%, 70% and 50% of their annual base salary, respectively. For 2021, our named executive officer performance bonuses were dependent upon meeting a target operating income measure for 2021. If we overachieved our target measure, the maximum payout any named executive officer could receive was 120% of target bonus. The independent members of the Board set the target measure at a level it felt was rigorous, but achievable with effort and represented a meaningful increase from our level of achievement in 2020. We are not disclosing the target goal information because we believe that disclosure would result in competitive harm as this information would provide competitors with insights into our business operations that would be harmful to us.

Arlo Technologies, Inc. Notice of 2022 Annual Meeting and Proxy Statement 27

TABLE OF CONTENTS

During 2021 our team successfully navigated considerable global supply chain challenges to deliver strong results across our entire business in Q4, including crossing over to our non-GAAP operating profit for the first time in our history as a public company. After assessing our 2021 performance, the independent members of the Board determined that we had achieved our operating income target and accordingly, each of our named executive officers received a performance bonus equal to their target bonus. The 2021 amounts reflected as Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation in the Summary Compensation Table for our named executive officers reflect the value of the bonuses earned for 2021 performance under Arlo’s 2021 executive bonus plan. These bonuses were paid in the form of fully-vested restricted stock units issued in March 2022.
Equity-Based Incentives
Our equity-based incentive awards are designed to align our interests and those of our stockholders with those of our employees and Board of Directors, including our named executive officers.
During 2021, we granted each of our named executive officers RSUs and performance-vesting RSUs as reflected in the table below. Specifically, in February 2021, we granted to Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse 549,456, 163,241, and 78,597 shares of stock awards, respectively, consisting of RSUs (50% of the grant), performance-based RSUs (“PSUs”) (25% of the grant) and market-based performance RSU (“TSR MPSUs”) (25% of the grant). In July 2021, to provide further retention and incentive opportunity that would deliver value only upon achievement of performance goals, we granted to Mr. McRae additional performance-vesting RSUs that vest based on the Company's achievement of sustained stock price performance targets and Mr. McRae’s continued employment over a four year performance period (“CEO MPSUs”).

The RSUs will vest in four equal annual installments during the period that begins on the RSU grant date. The PSUs are eligible to vest based on the extent to which a cash balance milestone is achieved as of December 31, 2021. If such milestone is achieved, the PSUs will vest in four equal annual installments measured from the PSU grant date, subject to continued service. The maximum number of shares that NEOs can earn under the PSUs is 120% of the target number of the PSUs. If the minimum threshold (89% of target) is achieved, the minimum number of shares that NEOs can earn is 75% of the target number of the PSUs. In January 2022, the Board certified that we had significantly achieved our cash balance milestone and accordingly, each of our NEOs became eligible to earn 120% of target PSUs if the remaining four-year service vesting requirement is met.
The independent members of the Board set the cash balance milestone at a target level that it felt would be challenging based upon our historical performance, internal forecasts at the time and industry-wide conditions. We do not disclose our cash balance milestone because we believe that disclosure would result in competitive harm as this information would provide competitors with insights into our business operations that would be harmful to us.
The TSR MPSUs are eligible to vest only at the end of the four-year period that begins on the TSR MPSU grant date, based on the Company's total shareholder return (“TSR”) relative to the Russell 2000 Index (the “Benchmark”) during such four-year period. The target number of PSUs are eligible to vest upon TSR equal to the Benchmark. The number of PSUs eligible to vest will increase by 3.3% or decrease by 2.5% of the target PSUs for each 1% of positive or negative TSR relative to the Benchmark. In the event the Company's TSR is more than thirty percentage points below the Benchmark, no PSUs will be eligible to vest. In no event will the number of PSUs eligible to vest exceed 200% of the target PSUs. Additionally, if the Company’s TSR is negative, the maximum number of PSUs eligible to vest may not exceed 100% of the target PSUs, irrespective of performance exceeding the Benchmark.
The CEO MPSUs are eligible to vest based on the Company's achievement of certain average daily closing prices per share of the Company's common stock, as reported on the NYSE, for any thirty consecutive trading days (the “Price Targets”) during a four year performance period. There are five Price Targets, each of which, if achieved, result in one-fifth the target CEO MPSUs becoming eligible to vest: $7.57 per share, $8.69 per share, $9.97 per share,

$11.44 per share, $13.20 per share. To the extent that a Price Target is not achieved during the four year performance period, the corresponding portion of the CEO MPSUs will be forfeited. Upon achievement of a Price Target, the corresponding CEO MPSUs will become eligible to vest in accordance with a time-vesting period measured quarterly over the four years measured from the date of grant of the CEO MPSUs. The Price Targets were set at rigorous levels that the Board determined if achieved, would deliver significant appreciation to our shareholders. Specifically the targets represented premiums ranging from approximately 120% to more than 200% of stock price on the date of grant and, importantly, required such prices to be sustained for a 30 trading day period.
On December 1 and 29, 2021, the first and second Price Targets were achieved, respectively, and accordingly, 40% of the CEO MPSUs became eligible to vest over the four year time-vesting period, subject to Mr. McRae’s continued services.
Clawback Policy
Each of our named executive officer’s equity awards and performance-bonus awards are subject to a Clawback Policy adopted by us in August 2018 (the “Clawback Policy”). Pursuant to the Clawback Policy, if (i) we are required to restate our financial statements, (ii) in the reasonable judgment of the Board or Compensation Committee, the financial statements as so restated would have resulted in less compensation paid to the executive officer if such information had been known at the time the compensation had originally been calculated or determined, and (iii) the executive officer’s intentional misconduct, fraud and/or embezzlement led, in whole or in part, to the restatement of the financial statements, then the Board or Compensation Committee, in its sole discretion and to the extent permitted by law, may require such executive officer to reimburse us for any bonus or other incentive-based or equity-based compensation (or in the case of equity-based compensation, return equity to us) for the amount that such original compensation exceeds the compensation as recalculated for the restated financial statements.
Agreements with Our Named Executive Officers
We have entered into confirmatory employment letters with each of Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse. The employment letters generally memorialize the executive officer’s base salary, target annual bonus, and participation in our employee benefit plans and programs.
In addition, we maintain change in control and severance agreements with each of our NEOs that provide for severance protections, as described below under “Potential Payments upon Termination or Change in Control.”
Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change of Control
Regardless of the manner in which a named executive officer’s service terminates, the named executive officer is entitled to receive amounts earned during his or her term of service, including unpaid salary and unused vacation, as applicable. Upon a termination without cause or resignation with good reason that does not occur during the one month prior to or 12 months following a change in control, Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse would be entitled to (1) cash severance equal to the executive officer’s annual base salary and, for Mr. McRae, an additional amount equal to his target annual bonus, (2) 12 months of premiums for health benefits continuation and (3) accelerated vesting of any unvested equity awards that would have vested during the 12 months following the termination date for Mr. McRae and accelerated vesting of any unvested time-based equity awards that would have vested during the 12 months following the termination date for Messrs. Mattingly and Busse. Upon a termination without cause or resignation with good reason that occurs during the one month prior to or 12 months following a change in control, Messrs. McRae, Mattingly and Busse would be entitled to (1) cash severance equal to a multiple (2 times for Mr. McRae and 1 times for Messrs. Mattingly and Busse) of the sum of the executive officer’s annual base salary and target annual bonus, (2) a number of months (24 for Mr. McRae and 12 for Messrs. Mattingly and Busse) of premiums for health benefits continuation and (3) vesting of all outstanding, unvested equity awards for Mr. McRae (in the case of CEO MPSUs and TSR PSUs, only to the extent the performance goals for such awards are determined achieved as of such change in control) and vesting of all outstanding, unvested time-based equity awards, PSUs and TSR PSUs (only to the extent the performance goals are determined achieved as of such change in control) for Messrs. Mattingly and Busse. Severance will be conditioned upon the execution and non-revocation of a release of claims. The agreements do not provide for any excise tax gross ups. If the merger-related payments or benefits of Messrs.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

McRae, Mattingly and Busse are subject to the 20% excise tax under Section 4999 of the Code, then the executive officer will either receive all such payments and benefits subject to the excise tax or such payments and benefits will be reduced so that the excise tax does not apply, whichever approach yields the best after-tax outcome for the executive officer.
Each of our named executive officers holds equity awards that were granted pursuant to the 2018 Plan. A description of the termination and change in control provisions in the 2018 Plan applicable to the equity awards granted to our named executive officers is provided below under “Equity Benefit Plans” and “Outstanding Equity Awards at Fiscal Year-End” and above under “Equity-Based Incentive Awards.”

The amounts for NETGEAR RSUs were calculated as the product of the closing price of NETGEAR’s common stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market on December 31, 2021 (the last market trading day in 2021), which was $29.21, and the number of shares pursuant to the applicable NETGEAR RSU award. The amounts for our RSUs were calculated as the product of the closing price of our common stock on the NYSE on December 31, 2021 (the last market trading day in 2021), which was $10.49, and the number of shares pursuant to the applicable Arlo RSU award.
(4)
These RSUs will vest in four equal annual installments with the first installment vesting on the last day of the grant month and the subsequent installments vesting on the annual anniversary of the first vesting date, subject to the individual continuing to be a service provider through such dates.
(5)
Our named executive officers who were serving at the time of the Distribution received the Arlo equity awards in connection with the Distribution on December 31, 2018 as consideration for the NETGEAR award listed directly above in the table. The “grant date” for the Arlo awards granted in the Distribution reflect the grant date of the NETGEAR equity award under which it was distributed.

The TSR MPSUs will vest at the end of the three-year performance period that begins on the TSR MPSU grant date based on performance of the Company's common stock relative to the Benchmark during the three-year period from the grant date; the amount of shares listed in the table above represents the target number of shares. As of December 31, 2021, the unvested shares of RSUs and target TSR MPSUs granted in August 2019 were 71,420 and 214,260, respectively, for Mr. McRae and 27,874 and 83,620, respectively, for Mr. Busse.

The TSR MPSUs will vest at the end of the four-year period that begins on the TSR MPSU grant date based on performance of the Company's common stock relative to the Benchmark during the four-year period from the grant date. The number reflected in the table above is the target number of shares that NEOs can earn under the PSUs. As of December 31, 2021, the unvested shares of RSUs, PSUs and TSR MPSUs granted in February 2021 were 274,728, 197,804, and 274,728, respectively, for Mr. McRae, and 81,621, 58,766, and 81,620, respectively, for Mr. Mattingly and 39,299, 28,295, and 39,298, respectively, for Mr. Busse.

Represents the CEO MPSUs granted to Mr. McRae in July 2021. The CEO MPSUs will be eligible to vest over four year service vesting schedule measured in substantially equal quarterly installments that began on the CEO MPSUs' grant date in five equal tranches based on the Company's achievement of certain average daily closing prices per share of the Company's common stock, as reported on the NYSE, for any 30 consecutive trading days on or prior to July 28, 2025 (the “Performance Period End Date”), with the first tranche target at $7.57 per share, with the second tranche target at $8.69 per share, with the third tranche target at $9.97 per share, with the fourth tranche target $11.44 per share and with the fifth tranche target at $13.20 per share.

As of December 31, 2021, the unvested shares of CEO MPSU granted in July 2021 was 738,660 shares.
Option Repricings
We did not engage in any repricings or other material modifications of our named executive officers’ outstanding equity awards during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.
Perquisites Health, Welfare and Retirement Benefits
Our named executive officers are currently eligible to participate in our employee benefit plans, including our medical, dental, vision, group life, disability and accidental death and dismemberment insurance plans, in each case on the same basis as our other employees. In addition, we provide a cash subsidy, which is $50 per pay period, to any employee, including a named executive officer, who does not elect coverage under our company-sponsored medical insurance plans. We also provide a 401(k) plan to our employees, including our named executive officers, as discussed in the section below entitled “401(k) Plan.” We do not provide any other perquisites or personal benefits to our named executive officers. We do, however, pay the premiums for term life insurance and disability insurance for all of our employees, including our current named executive officers.
401(k) Plan
We currently maintain a defined contribution employee retirement plan (“401(k) plan”) for our employees. Our named executive officers are eligible to participate in the 401(k) plan on the same basis as our other employees. The 401(k) plan is intended to qualify as a tax-qualified plan under Section 401(k) of the Code. The plan permits us to

make discretionary contributions, including matching contributions and discretionary profit sharing contributions. In fiscal year 2021, we matched 50% of the contributions for employees that remain active with the Company through the end of the fiscal year, up to a maximum of $2,000.

Compensation Plan Information
2018 Equity Incentive Plan
Our Board adopted and our stockholders approved the 2018 Plan, which became effective on August 1, 2018.
The number of shares of our common stock initially available for issuance under our 2018 Plan was 7.5 million shares of our common stock. On December 31, 2018, 6,822,787 shares of our common stock were added to the 2018 Plan reserve as Adjusted Awards (as defined in the 2018 Plan). In addition, the number of shares of our common stock reserved under our 2018 Plan will also include an annual increase on the first day of each fiscal year beginning on January 1, 2019 equal to the lesser of (1) four percent (4%) of our outstanding shares of common stock as of the last day of the immediately preceding fiscal year and (2) such number of shares as our board of directors may determine; provided, however, that such determination under clause (2) will be made no later than the last day of the immediately preceding fiscal year. 3,031,005, 3,173,178, and 3,377,816 shares of our common stock were added to the 2018 Plan reserve on January 1, 2020, 2021 and 2022, respectively.
The 2018 Plan contains certain annual award limits, and the maximum number of shares and/or cash that may be issued to any one individual (other than any non-employee director) under the 2018 Plan in any fiscal year.
Under the 2018 Plan, no outside director may be granted, in any fiscal year, share-based awards with a grant date fair value (determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) greater than $500,000, increased to $1,000,000 in the fiscal year of his or her initial service as an outside director, with each of the foregoing limits increased by $25,000 on January 1 of each year during the term of the 2018 Plan.
Stock Options
Each option granted under the 2018 Plan is evidenced by an award agreement specifying the number of shares subject to the option and the other terms and conditions of the option. The exercise price per share of each option may not be less than the fair market value of a share of our common stock on the date of grant (except if granted pursuant to a transaction described in, and in a manner consistent with, Section 424(a) of the Code). However, any incentive stock option granted to a person who at the time of grant owns stock possessing more than 10% of the total combined voting power of all of our classes of stock or any of our parent or subsidiary corporations must have an exercise price per share equal to at least 110% of the fair market value of a share on the date of grant.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
  
Options are exercisable at such times and under such conditions as the administrator determines and as set forth in the award agreement. Unless otherwise provided in the award agreement, an option subject to only time-based vesting will become fully vested upon termination of a participant’s service for retirement, disability, or death.
The maximum term of an option is specified in the award agreement, provided that options will have a maximum term of no more than ten years, and provided further that an incentive stock option granted to a 10% stockholder must have a term not exceeding five years.
The administrator determines and specifies in each award agreement, solely in its discretion, the post-termination exercise period applicable to an option following a participant’s terminating service with us or our applicable parent, subsidiary, or affiliate. In the absence of such a determination, a participant (or such other appropriate person) will be able to exercise the vested portion of an option for: (1) three months following the participant’s termination for reasons other than retirement, death, or disability, and (2) 12 months following the participant’s termination due to retirement, death, or disability. In no event, however, will an option be exercisable beyond its term.
Restricted Stock Units
RSUs, are stock awards under the 2018 Plan which represent a right to receive cash or shares of our common stock at a future date.
RSUs result in a payment to a participant only if the vesting criteria the administrator establishes are achieved or the awards otherwise vest. Unless otherwise provided in the award agreement, RSUs subject to only time-based vesting will become fully vested upon termination of a participant’s service for retirement, disability or death.
After the grant of RSUs, the administrator, in its sole discretion, may reduce or waive any restrictions (including vesting criteria) with respect to such RSUs. Payment of earned RSUs will be made as soon as practicable after the date set forth in the award agreement, and, in the administrator’s sole discretion, will be settled in cash, shares of our common stock, or in a combination of both (which will have an aggregate fair market value equal to the earned RSUs).
Performance Units
Performance units are RSUs that result in a payment to a participant only if specified performance objectives or other vesting provisions are achieved during a specified performance period. Each award of performance units is evidenced by an award agreement specifying the performance period during which achievement of applicable performance objectives or other vesting criteria will be measured and other terms and conditions of the award. Each performance unit has an initial value established by the administrator on or before the grant date.
The administrator sets performance objectives or other vesting provisions, which may be based upon achieving company-wide, divisional, business unit or individual goals (including continued employment or service), applicable federal or state securities laws, or any other basis the administrator determines in its discretion.
After the applicable performance period has ended, the holder of performance units will be entitled to receive a payout of the number of performance units or shares earned by the participant over the performance period. The administrator, in its sole discretion, may reduce or waive any performance objectives or other vesting provisions for such performance units or shares. Payment of earned performance units or shares will be made as soon as practicable after the end of the applicable performance period, and, in the administrator’s sole discretion, will be made in cash, in shares of equivalent value, or any combination of both (which will have an aggregate fair market value equal to the earned performance units or shares at the close of the applicable performance period). A participant will forfeit all performance units or shares that are unearned or unvested as of the date set forth in the award agreement.
Change in Control
The 2018 Plan provides that, in the event of a “change in control” (as defined in the 2018 Plan), each award will be treated as the administrator determines, including that: (1) awards may be assumed or substantially equivalent awards will be substituted by the acquiring or succeeding corporation (or an affiliate thereof) with appropriate adjustments to the number and kind of shares and prices; (2) upon written notice to a participant, that the participant’s awards will terminate upon or immediately before the completion of such change in control;

Arlo Technologies, Inc. Notice of 2022 Annual Meeting and Proxy Statement 33

TABLE OF CONTENTS

(3) outstanding awards will vest and become exercisable, realizable, or payable, or restrictions applicable to an award will lapse, in whole or in part, before or upon completion of such change in control, and, to the extent the administrator determines, terminate upon or immediately before the effectiveness of such merger or change in control; (4) (a) awards will be terminated in exchange for an amount of cash and/or property, if any, equal to the amount that would have been attained upon the exercise of such award or realization of the participant’s rights as of the date the transaction occurs, or (b) awards will be replaced with other rights or property the administrator selects in its sole discretion; or (5) any combination of the foregoing. The administrator will not be required to treat all awards similarly in the transaction.
An award will not be considered assumed or substituted for unless: (1) the replacement award is the same type as the replaced award, (2) the replacement award has a value equal to the value of the replaced award as determined by the Compensation Committee in its discretion, (3) if the replaced award was equity-based, the replacement award relates to our publicly traded securities or the publicly traded securities of the surviving entity following the change in control, (4) the replacement award contains terms relating to vesting that are substantially identical to those of the replaced award and (5) if the terms and conditions of the replacement award are not less favorable to the participant than the terms and conditions of the replaced award as of the date of the change in control.
If the successor corporation does not assume or substitute for the award, options and stock appreciation rights will become fully vested and exercisable, all restrictions on restricted stock and restricted stock units will lapse, and, for awards with performance-based vesting, all performance goals or other vesting criteria will be deemed achieved at 100% of target levels, and all other terms and conditions will be deemed met. In addition, if an option or stock appreciation right is not assumed or substituted for, the administrator will notify the participant that the option or stock appreciation right will be exercisable for a period of time the administrator determines in its sole discretion, and the option or stock appreciation right will terminate upon the expiration of such period.
With respect to awards granted to our non-employee directors, in the event of a change in control, the participant will fully vest in and have the right to exercise all of his or her outstanding options and stock appreciation rights, all restrictions on restricted stock and restricted stock units will lapse, and, for awards with performance-based vesting, all performance goals or other vesting criteria will be deemed achieved at 100% of target levels, and all other terms and conditions met.
Termination or Amendment
The 2018 Plan will automatically terminate ten years from August 1, 2018, unless terminated earlier by our Board. The administrator may amend, alter, suspend or terminate the 2018 Plan at any time, provided that no amendment may be made without stockholder approval to the extent approval is necessary or desirable to comply with any applicable laws. In addition, no amendment, alteration, suspension or termination may materially impair the rights of any participant unless mutually agreed in writing otherwise between the participant and the administrator.
Adjusted Awards
With respect to any adjusted awards, to the extent that the terms of the 2018 Plan are inconsistent with the terms of the adjusted award, the terms of the adjusted award are governed by the applicable NETGEAR plan under which the adjusted award was granted and the award agreement pursuant to which the adjusted award was granted.
2018 Employee Stock Purchase Plan
Our Board has adopted and our stockholders have approved the 2018 ESPP, which became effective upon the completion of our initial public offering in August 2018.
The 2018 ESPP provides our eligible employees with an opportunity to purchase shares of our common stock through accumulated payroll deductions. We believe that allowing our employees to participate in the 2018 ESPP provides them with a further incentive to ensure our success and accomplish our corporate goals.
On August 1, 2018, in connection with the IPO, we reserved a total of 1,500,000 shares of common stock for issuance under the 2018 ESPP. As of December 31, 2021, 1,315,080 shares of common stock were available for issuance under the 2018 ESPP. The number of shares of our common stock available for issuance under our 2018 ESPP also includes an annual increase on the first day of each fiscal year beginning on January 1, 2019, in an amount equal to the least of: (1) 1,000,000 shares, (2) one percent (1%) of the outstanding shares of our common stock on the last day

Generally, each of our common law employees whose customary employment with us is at least twenty (20) hours per week and more than five (5) months in a calendar year is eligible to participate in the 2018 ESPP; except that no employee will be granted an option under the 2018 ESPP (1) to the extent that, immediately after the grant, such employee would own or have the right to purchase five percent (5%) or more of the total combined voting power or value of all classes of our capital stock or any of our parents or subsidiaries, or (2) to the extent that his or her rights to purchase stock under all of our 2018 ESPP accrues at a rate which exceeds twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) worth of stock (determined at the fair market value of the shares at the time such option is granted) for each calendar year in which such option is outstanding at any time.
Offering Periods and Purchases
Unless the administrator determines otherwise, each offering period during which an option granted pursuant to the 2018 ESPP may be exercised will have a duration of approximately six (6) months.
Unless and until the administrator determines otherwise, the per share purchase price is eighty-five percent (85%) of the fair market value of a share of common stock on the offering date or the exercise date, whichever is lower; provided, however, that the purchase price may be adjusted by the administrator.
The number of whole shares of common stock that a participant may purchase in each offering period is determined by dividing the total amount of payroll deductions withheld from the participant’s compensation during that offering period by the purchase price.
Termination of Employment/Change in Control
Upon termination of a participant’s employment for any reason, including death or disability, he or she shall be deemed to have elected to withdraw from the 2018 ESPP and any payroll deductions credited to the participant’s account (to the extent not yet used to purchase shares of our common stock) shall be returned to the participant or, in the case of death, to the person or persons entitled thereto as provided in the 2018 ESPP, and such participant’s option will automatically be terminated.
In the event of a “change in control,” as defined in the 2018 ESPP, each option under the 2018 ESPP will be assumed or an equivalent option will be substituted by the successor corporation or a parent or subsidiary of such successor corporation. In the event the successor corporation refuses to assume or substitute for the options, any offering periods then in progress will be shortened by setting a new exercise date on which such offering period will end. The new exercise date will occur prior to the change of control. Further, the administrator will notify each participant in writing, at least ten (10) business days prior to the new exercise date, that the exercise date has been changed to the new exercise date and that the participant’s option will be exercised automatically on the new exercise date, unless the participant has already withdrawn from the offering period.

Cash Retainer. Our non-employee directors are entitled to receive a $32,000 annual retainer. The Chair of the Board and members and Chairs of each committee of the Board also receive the additional annual retainers described below:

Upon joining the Board, each non-employee director will be eligible to receive an initial grant of RSUs (the “Initial Grant”) equal to $180,000, with such dollar amount pro-rated for the date of such initial election or appointment in relation to the date of the previous annual meeting of stockholders, divided by the NYSE closing price of our common stock on the date of grant (rounded down to the nearest whole share), which will become fully vested on the date of the next annual stockholder meeting.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS
Below we describe transactions since January 1, 2020 to which we were or will be a participant and in which the amounts involved exceeded or will exceed $120,000, and any of our directors, executive officers, or holders of more than 5% of our capital stock, or any member of the immediate family of, or person sharing the household with, the foregoing persons, had or will have a direct or indirect material interest. We believe that all of these transactions were on terms as favorable as could have been obtained from unrelated third parties.
Employment Arrangements
We currently have written confirmatory employment letters with our executive officers. For information about our employment agreements with our named executive officers, refer to “Executive Compensation - Agreements with our Named Executive Officers.”
Equity Awards Granted to Executive Officers and Directors
We have granted stock options and RSUs to our executive officers and directors. For information about our stock option and RSU awards to our named executive officers and our directors, refer to “Executive Compensation-Outstanding Equity Awards at Fiscal Year-End” and “Executive Compensation-Non-Employee Director Compensation.”
Indemnification Agreements
We have entered, and intend to continue to enter, into separate indemnification agreements with our directors and executive officers, in addition to the indemnification provided for in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws. These agreements, among other things, require us to indemnify our directors and executive officers for certain expenses, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and settlement amounts incurred by a director or executive officer in any action or proceeding arising out of their services as one of our directors or executive officers or as a director or executive officer of any other company or enterprise to which the person provides services at our request. We believe that these provisions and indemnification agreements are necessary to attract and retain qualified persons as directors and officers.
The limitation of liability and indemnification provisions in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws may discourage stockholders from bringing a lawsuit against directors for breach of their fiduciary duties. They may also reduce the likelihood of derivative litigation against directors and officers, even though an action, if successful, might benefit us and our stockholders. A stockholder’s investment may decline in value to the extent we pay the costs of settlement and damage awards against directors and officers pursuant to these indemnification provisions.
Policies and Procedures for Related Person Transactions
We have a general policy that all material transactions with a related party, as well as all material transactions in which there is an actual, or in some cases, perceived, conflict of interest, will be subject to prior review and approval by our Audit Committee and its independent members, who will determine whether such transactions or proposals are fair and reasonable to us and our stockholders. In general, potential related-party transactions will be identified by our management and discussed with our Audit Committee at its meetings. Detailed proposals, including, where applicable, financial and legal analyses, alternatives and management recommendations, will be provided to our Audit Committee with respect to each issue under consideration, and decisions will be made by our Audit Committee with respect to the foregoing related-party transactions after opportunity for discussion and review of materials. When applicable, our Audit Committee will request further information and, from time to time, will request guidance or confirmation from internal or external counsel or auditors.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

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 or other Annual Meeting materials with respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials or other Annual Meeting materials addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as “householding,” potentially means extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings for companies.
This year, a number of brokers with account holders who are Arlo stockholders will be “householding” the Company’s proxy materials. A single Notice of Internet Availability 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 of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials, please notify your broker or Arlo. Direct your written request to Arlo Technologies, Inc., Attn: Secretary, 2200 Faraday Ave., Suite #150, Carlsbad, California 92008 or call us at (408) 890-3900 and we will promptly deliver the requested documents or notice. Stockholders who currently receive multiple copies of the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials at their addresses and would like to request “householding” of their communications should contact their brokers.
