(b) Charles E. Bunch did not stand for re-election to the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.

Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

An annual meeting of shareholders of PNC was held on April 27, 2022 for the purpose of considering and acting upon the following matters:

(1) The election of the 13 director nominees named in PNC’s proxy statement to serve until the next annual meeting and until their successors are elected and qualified;

(2) The ratification of the Audit Committee’s selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as PNC’s independent registered public accounting firm for 2022;

(3) An advisory vote to approve the compensation of PNC’s named executive officers; and

(4) A shareholder proposal regarding a report on risk management and the nuclear weapons industry.

The final voting results for each proposal, as certified by the judge of election for the annual meeting, are described below. Fractional shares have been rounded as appropriate. For beneficial owners holding PNC shares at a bank or brokerage institution, a “broker non- vote” occurred if the owner failed to give voting instructions and the bank or broker was restricted from voting on the owner’s behalf under New York Stock Exchange rules.

(1) The 13 director nominees named in PNC’s proxy statement were elected.
