PROXY STATEMENT

2023 ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS TO BE HELD ON JUNE 14, 2023

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THESE PROXY MATERIALS AND VOTING

How will the Annual Meeting be conducted?

The 2023 annual meeting of shareholders of ImmunoGen, Inc. (“Annual Meeting”) will be held entirely online via live audio webcast. The virtual meeting will allow for participation by all of our shareholders, regardless of their geographic location. We are pleased to provide expanded access and improved communication for our shareholders. To attend the meeting, examine our list of shareholders, or vote during the meeting, go to www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/IMGN2023.

How do I attend the Annual Meeting? What if I have technical difficulties or trouble accessing the Annual Meeting?

If you are a registered shareholder or beneficial owner of shares of the common stock of ImmunoGen at the close of business on April 10, 2023 (the “Record Date”) you may attend the Annual Meeting by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/IMGN2023 and logging in by entering the 16-digit control number found on your Notice of Internet Availability, proxy card, or voting instruction form, as applicable. If you lose your 16-digit control number or are not a shareholder, you will be able to attend the meeting as a guest by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/IMGN2023 and registering as a guest. If you enter the meeting as a guest, you will not be able to vote your shares, examine our list of shareholders, or submit questions during the meeting.

You may log into the Annual Meeting beginning at 8:45 a.m. Eastern Time on June 14, 2023 and the meeting will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time. You should allow ample time to log in to the meeting and test your computer audio system. If you experience any technical difficulties accessing the meeting or during the meeting, please call the toll free number that will be available on our virtual shareholder login site (at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/IMGN2023) for assistance. We will have technicians ready to assist you with any technical difficulties you may have beginning 15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting, at 8:45 a.m. Eastern Time on June 14, 2023.

Shareholders will also be able to submit questions through the platform being used for the Annual Meeting. Shareholders may ask questions that are confined to matters properly presented at the meeting and of general concern to the Company.

A list of shareholders of record will be available during the virtual Annual Meeting for inspection by shareholders at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/IMGN2023.

Why are these materials being made available to me?

We are making these proxy materials available to you on or about April 26, 2023, in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the Board of Directors of ImmunoGen, Inc. (the “Board”), for the Annual Meeting, and any adjournment or postponement of that meeting. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 14, 2023, beginning at 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time, in a virtual-only meeting format. We intend to mail a Notice Regarding the Availability of Proxy Materials (referred to elsewhere in this proxy statement as the “Notice”) to all shareholders of record entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting on or about April 26, 2023. The Notice will instruct you as to how you may obtain access and review all of the important information contained in the proxy materials, including the proxy statement and our Annual Report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022. If you received a Notice by mail and would like to receive a printed copy of our proxy materials, you should follow the instructions included in the Notice for requesting such materials.

You are invited to attend the Annual Meeting, and we request that you vote on the proposals described in this proxy statement. You do not need to attend the meeting to vote your shares. Instead, you may have your shares voted at the meeting on your behalf by following the instructions below to submit your proxy on the Internet. Alternatively, if you received a

1

Table of Contents

printed copy of these materials, you may complete, sign, and return the accompanying proxy card or submit your proxy by telephone as described below in order to have your shares voted at the meeting on your behalf.

Why did I receive a notice in the mail regarding the internet availability of proxy materials instead of a full set of proxy materials?

As permitted by the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) we may furnish our proxy materials to our shareholders by providing access to such documents on the Internet, rather than mailing printed copies of these materials to each shareholder. Most shareholders will not receive printed copies of the proxy materials unless they request them. We believe that this process should lower the costs of the Annual Meeting and help to conserve natural resources. If you received the Notice by mail or electronically, you will not receive a printed or email copy of the proxy materials unless you request one by following the instructions included in the Notice. Instead, the Notice instructs you as to how you may access and review all of the proxy materials and submit your proxy on the Internet. If you requested a paper copy of the proxy materials, you may authorize the voting of your shares by following the instructions on the proxy card.

What am I voting on?

There are five matters scheduled for a vote:

To fix the number of members of our Board of Directors at nine;
To elect nine nominees to our Board of Directors;
To approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation paid to our named executive officers, as described in this proxy statement;
To vote, on an advisory basis, on the frequency of advisory shareholder votes on the compensation paid to our named executive officers; and
To ratify the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2023.

Who can attend and vote at the meeting?

Shareholders of record at the close of business on April 10, 2023 are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting. Each share of our common stock is entitled to one vote on all matters to be voted on at the meeting and can be voted only if the record owner is present to vote or is represented by proxy.

What constitutes a quorum at the meeting?

The presence at the Annual Meeting, virtually or represented by proxy, of the holders of a majority of our common stock outstanding on April 10, 2023, the Record Date, will constitute a quorum for purposes of the meeting. On the Record Date, 226,070,419 shares of our common stock were outstanding. For purposes of determining whether a quorum exists, proxies received but marked “abstain” and so-called “broker non-votes” (described below) will be counted as present.

How many votes do I have?

Each share of our common stock that you own entitles you to one vote.

How do I vote by proxy?

Your vote is very important. Whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we urge you to either:

vote on the Internet pursuant to the instructions provided in the Notice or proxy card you received by mail, or
request printed copies of the proxy materials by mail pursuant to the instructions provided in the Notice, and either
ocomplete, sign, date, and return the proxy card you will receive in response to your request, or
ovote by telephone (toll-free) in the United States or Canada or on the Internet, in accordance with the instructions provided in the proxy card.

Requests for printed copies of the proxy materials should be made no later than June 1, 2023, to ensure that they will be received in time for you to cast your vote on a timely basis. Please note that the Notice is not a proxy card or a ballot, and any attempt to vote your shares by marking and returning the Notice will be ineffective.

Table of Contents

If you properly complete and deliver your proxy (whether electronically, by mail, or by telephone) and it is received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on June 13, 2023, your shares will be voted as you direct. If you sign, date, and return a proxy card but do not specify how your shares are to be voted, then your shares will be voted as follows:

FOR the proposal to fix the number of members of our Board of Directors at nine;
FOR the election of the nine nominees named below under “Election of Directors”;
FOR approval, on an advisory basis, of the compensation paid to our named executive officers, as described in this proxy statement;
for ONE YEAR for the frequency of the advisory shareholder votes on the compensation paid to our named executive officers; and
FOR the ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2023.

If any other matter properly comes before the Annual Meeting or at any adjournments or postponements of the meeting, the person acting as your proxy will vote your shares in his discretion. At present, we do not know of any other business that is intended to be brought before or acted upon at the meeting.

How do I vote if my shares are held by my broker?

If your shares are held by your broker in “street name,” you will need to instruct your broker how to vote your shares in the manner provided by your broker. You may also log into the Annual Meeting by entering your 16-digit control number found on your voting instruction form and vote your shares during the meeting.

What discretion does my broker have to vote my shares held in “street name?”

A broker holding your shares in “street name” must vote those shares according to any specific instructions it receives from you. If specific instructions are not received, your broker’s ability to vote your shares in its discretion is dependent on the type of proposal involved. A broker generally may not vote on “non-routine” matters without receiving your specific voting instructions. Although the determination of whether a nominee will have discretionary voting power for a particular item is typically determined only after proxy materials are filed with the SEC, we expect that the proposals for the election of directors, the advisory proposal on executive compensation, and the advisory proposal on the frequency of future advisory votes on executive compensation will be considered “non-routine” matters. Accordingly, if such a matter comes before the meeting and you have not specifically instructed your broker how to vote your shares, your shares will not be voted on that matter, giving rise to what is called a “broker non-vote.” Shares represented by broker non-votes will be counted for purposes of determining the existence of a quorum for the transaction of business, but for purposes of determining the number of shares voting on a particular proposal broker non-votes will not be counted as votes cast or shares voting. We expect that the votes on fixing the number of members of our Board of Directors and the ratification of the selection of our independent auditors will be considered “routine” matters, and a broker would therefore be able to vote on these proposals even if it does not receive your specific instructions. As a result, we do not expect any broker non-votes will exist in connection with such proposals.

Can I change my vote after I have already voted?

Yes. You may change your vote at any time before your proxy is exercised. To change your vote, you may:

Deliver to our corporate secretary a written notice revoking your earlier vote;
Submit a properly completed and signed proxy card with a later date;
Vote again telephonically or electronically (available until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on June 13, 2023); or
Vote at the virtual meeting.

Your last properly cast vote will be counted. Your attendance at the virtual meeting will not by itself be deemed to revoke a previously delivered proxy.

If your shares are held in “street name,” you should contact your broker, bank, or other nominee for instructions on changing your vote.

Table of Contents

How are votes counted?

Proposal 1 - Proposal fixing the number of members of our Board of Directors at nine: Approval of this proposal requires the favorable vote of a majority of the votes cast on the matter. Abstentions will have no effect on the outcome of voting on this matter. We do not expect any broker non-votes on this proposal.
Proposal 2 - Election of directors: The nine nominees who receive the highest number of “For” votes will be elected. If you do not vote for a particular nominee, or you withhold authority for one or all nominees, your vote will have no effect on the outcome of the election. Broker non-votes will also have no effect on the outcome of the election.
Proposal 3 - Advisory (non-binding) vote on executive compensation, or “say-on-pay:” Because this proposal calls for a non-binding advisory vote, there is no “required vote” that would constitute approval. However, our Board of Directors and the Compensation Committee will take into account the result of the vote when determining future executive compensation arrangements. Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of voting on this matter.
Proposal 4 - Advisory (non-binding) vote on frequency of “say-on-pay” votes: This proposal also calls for a non-binding advisory vote. Accordingly, there is no “required vote” that would constitute approval. This proposal provides for a choice among three frequency periods (one, two, or three years) for future say-on-pay advisory votes. The vote on the frequency of say-on-pay votes is not binding on our Board. However, the Board will take into account the result of the vote when determining the frequency of future say-on-pay votes. Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of voting on this matter.
Proposal 5 - Ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm: Approval of this proposal requires the favorable vote of a majority of the votes cast on the matter. Abstentions will have no effect on the outcome of voting on this matter. We do not expect any broker non-votes on this proposal.

Where Can I Find the Voting Results of the Annual Meeting?

The preliminary voting results will be announced at the Annual Meeting, and we will publish preliminary, or final results if available, in a Current Report on Form 8-K within four business days following the meeting. If final results are unavailable at the time we file the Form 8-K, then we will file an amended report on Form 8-K to disclose the final voting results within four business days after the final voting results are known. 

How is ImmunoGen soliciting proxies?

We bear the cost of preparing, assembling, and mailing the proxy material relating to the solicitation of proxies by the Board of Directors for the Annual Meeting, as well as the cost of making such materials available on the Internet. In addition to the use of the mail and the Internet, certain of our officers and regular employees may, without additional compensation, solicit proxies in person, by telephone, or other means of communication. We will also request brokerage houses, custodians, nominees, and fiduciaries to forward copies of the proxy material to those persons for whom they hold shares, and will reimburse those record holders for their reasonable expenses in transmitting this material. In addition, we have engaged The Alliance Advisors, LLC to assist in the solicitation of proxies and provide related advice and informational support for a services fee and reimbursement of customary disbursements that are not expected to exceed $27,000, in the aggregate.

VOTING SECURITIES

The following tables set forth certain information with respect to the beneficial ownership of our common stock as of April 10, 2023, the Record Date, for (a) each shareholder known by us to own beneficially more than 5% of our common stock and (b) each of our directors and director nominees, each of our named executive officers, and all of our directors and executive officers as a group.

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC and includes voting or investment power with respect to the securities. We deem shares of common stock that may be acquired by an individual or group within 60 days of April 10, 2023 pursuant to the exercise of options or warrants, or the vesting of stock units to be outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of such individual or group, but those shares are not deemed to be outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person shown in the tables. Except as indicated in footnotes to the tables, we believe that the shareholders named in these tables have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of common stock shown to be beneficially owned by them based on information provided to

us by these shareholders. Percentage of ownership is based on 226,070,419 shares of our common stock outstanding as of April 10, 2023.

Who owns more than 5% of our stock?

To our knowledge, as of April 10, 2023, there were five shareholders who beneficially owned more than 5% of our common stock. The table below contains information regarding the beneficial ownership of these entities.

1)Based on a Schedule 13G/A filed jointly by RA Capital Management, L.P., Peter Kolchinsky, Rajeev Shah, and RA Capital Healthcare Fund, L.P. with the SEC on February 14, 2023 reporting beneficial ownership as of December 31, 2022. Consists of 21,853,958 shares of common stock and pre-funded warrants to purchase 730,477 shares of common stock. Excludes 20,704,305 shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of pre-funded warrants, which were not exercisable within 60 days of April 10, 2023 by virtue of the beneficial ownership limitation contained in the pre-funded warrants. The number of shares of common stock into which the pre-funded warrants are convertible is limited to that number of shares of common stock which would result in RA Capital Management, L.P., together with its affiliates and other attribution parties, having an aggregate beneficial ownership of no more than 9.99% of the total issued and outstanding shares of common stock. This beneficial ownership limitation may be increased or decreased to an amount not to exceed 19.99% of the number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of pre-funded warrants upon at least 61 days’ prior notice to the Company. The Schedule 13G/A filing reported that the reporting persons each had shared voting and investment power with respect to all of the shares reported.

ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

(Proposals 1 and 2)

Who sits on the Board of Directors?

Our by-laws provide that, at each annual meeting of shareholders, our shareholders will fix the number of directors to be elected to our Board of Directors. At our 2022 annual meeting of shareholders, the shareholders voted to fix the number of directors at nine and our Board of Directors currently consists of nine members. The shareholders may increase or decrease the number of directors constituting the full Board of Directors, provided that such number may not be less than three.

We are proposing that shareholders fix the number of directors to be elected at the Annual Meeting at nine. We are nominating the nine directors listed below for election. Persons elected as directors at the meeting will serve in office until the next annual meeting of shareholders and until their successors have been elected and qualified or until they die, resign, or are removed.

Recommendation

The Board recommends a vote “FOR” the proposal fixing the number of directors at nine and “FOR” the election of the nine nominees listed below.

Information About the Director Nominees

The persons named as proxies will vote, unless authority is withheld, for the election of the nominees named below. We have no reason to believe that any of the nominees will be unavailable for election. However, if any one of them becomes unavailable, the persons named as proxies have discretionary authority to vote for a substitute chosen by the Board.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Independence

Our Board of Directors has determined that a majority of the members of the Board should be “independent directors,” determined in accordance with the applicable listing standards of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) as in effect from time to time. Directors who are also ImmunoGen employees are not considered to be independent for this purpose. For a non-employee director to be considered independent, he or she must not have any direct or indirect material relationship with ImmunoGen. A material relationship is one which, in the opinion of the Board, would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. In determining whether a material relationship exists, the Board considers the circumstances of any direct compensation received by a director or a member of a director’s immediate family from ImmunoGen; any professional relationship between a director or a member of a director’s immediate family and ImmunoGen’s independent registered public accounting firm; any participation by an ImmunoGen executive officer in the compensation decisions of other companies employing a director or a member of a director’s immediate family as an executive officer; and commercial relationships between ImmunoGen and other entities with which a director is affiliated (as an executive officer, partner, or controlling shareholder). In addition, the Board has determined that directors who serve on the Audit Committee and the Compensation Committee must qualify as independent under applicable SEC rules and Nasdaq listing standards, which limit the compensation a member of the Audit Committee or Compensation Committee may receive directly or indirectly from ImmunoGen and require that Audit Committee members not be “affiliated persons” of ImmunoGen or its subsidiaries. Consistent with these considerations, the Board has determined that all of the current members of the Board are independent directors, except Mr. Enyedy, who is also our chief executive officer.

How are nominees for the Board selected?

Our Governance and Nominating Committee is responsible for identifying and recommending nominees for election to the Board. The committee will consider nominees recommended by shareholders if the shareholder submits the nomination in compliance with applicable requirements. All of the nominees for director standing for election at the Annual Meeting were most recently re- elected as directors at our 2022 annual meeting of shareholders.

Director Qualifications

When considering a potential candidate for membership on the Board, the Governance and Nominating Committee examines a candidate’s specific experience, knowledge, skills, expertise, integrity, ability to make independent analytical inquiries, understanding of our business environment, and willingness to devote adequate time and effort to Board responsibilities. In addition to these qualifications, when considering potential candidates for the Board, the committee seeks to ensure that the Board is comprised of a majority of independent directors and that the committees of the Board are comprised entirely of independent directors. The committee may also consider any other standards that it deems appropriate, including whether a potential candidate’s skill and experience would enhance the ability of a particular Board committee to fulfill its duties.

We believe it is important that our Board members collectively bring the experiences and skills appropriate to effectively carry out their responsibilities with respect to our business both as conducted today and as we plan to achieve our longer-term strategic objectives. We therefore seek as members of our Board individuals with a variety of perspectives, racial, ethnic, and gender diversity, and the expertise and ability to provide advice and oversight in the areas of financial and accounting controls; biotechnology research and drug development; business strategy; clinical development and regulatory affairs; compensation practices; product commercialization, including pricing and reimbursement; and corporate governance.

Potential candidates may come to the attention of the Governance and Nominating Committee from current directors, executive officers, shareholders, or other persons. The committee also, from time to time, engages firms that specialize in identifying director candidates. Once a person has been identified by the Governance and Nominating Committee as a potential candidate, the committee may collect and review publicly available information regarding the person to assess whether the person should be considered further. If the committee determines that the candidate warrants further consideration, and the person expresses a willingness to be considered and to serve on the Board, the committee requests information from the candidate, reviews the person’s accomplishments and qualifications, compares those accomplishments and qualifications to those of any other candidates that the committee might be considering, and conducts one or more

11

Table of Contents

interviews with the candidate. In certain instances, members of the committee may contact one or more references provided by the candidate or may contact other members of the business community or other persons that may have greater first-hand knowledge of the candidate’s credentials and accomplishments. The committee’s evaluation process does not vary based on whether a candidate is recommended by a shareholder, although the Board may take into consideration the number of shares held by the recommending shareholder and the length of time that such shares have been held.

Process for Shareholder Recommendations

Shareholders who wish to submit director candidates for consideration by our Governance and Nominating Committee should send such recommendations to our corporate secretary at ImmunoGen’s executive offices not fewer than 120 days prior to the first anniversary of the date on which ImmunoGen’s proxy statement for the prior year’s annual meeting of shareholders was released. Such recommendations must include the following information: (1) the name and address of the shareholder submitting the recommendation, as they appear on our books, and of the beneficial owner on whose behalf the recommendation is being submitted; (2) the class and number of our shares that are owned beneficially and held of record by such shareholder and such beneficial owner, and the period for which such shares have been held; (3) if the recommending shareholder is not a shareholder of record, a statement from the record holder (usually a broker or bank) verifying the holdings of the shareholder (or alternatively, a current Schedule 13D or 13G, or a Form 3, 4, or 5 filed with the SEC), and a statement from the recommending shareholder of the length of time that the shares have been held (if the recommendation is submitted by a group of shareholders, the foregoing information must be submitted for each shareholder in the group); (4) a statement from the shareholder as to whether he or she has a good faith intention to continue to hold the reported shares through the date of our next annual meeting of shareholders; (5) as to each proposed director candidate, all information relating to such person or persons that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for the election of directors pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”); (6) a description of the qualifications and background of the proposed director candidate that addresses the minimum qualifications and other criteria for Board membership described above; (7) a description of all arrangements or understandings between the proposed director candidate and the shareholder submitting the recommendation; (8) a description of all relationships between the proposed director candidate and any of our competitors, customers, suppliers, or other persons with special interests regarding ImmunoGen; and (9) the consent of each proposed director candidate to be named in the proxy statement and to serve as a director if elected. Shareholders must also submit any other information regarding the proposed director candidate that SEC rules require to be included in a proxy statement relating to the election of directors.

Can I communicate with ImmunoGen’s directors?

Yes. Shareholders who wish to communicate with the Board or with a particular director may send a letter to ImmunoGen, Inc., 830 Winter Street, Waltham, MA 02451, attention: Secretary. The mailing envelope should contain a clear notation that the enclosed letter is a “Shareholder-Board Communication” or “Shareholder-Director Communication.” All such letters should clearly state whether the intended recipients are all members of the Board, the Chair, or certain specified individual directors. The legal department will make copies of all such letters and circulate them as appropriate to the relevant director or directors. Items that are unrelated to the duties and responsibilities of our Board may be excluded, such as: junk mail and mass mailings, resumes, and other forms of job inquiries, surveys, and solicitations or advertisements. In addition, any material that is unduly hostile, threatening, or illegal in nature may be excluded.

What is the Board’s leadership structure?

We do not have a policy on whether the same person should serve as both the principal executive officer and Chair of the Board or, if the roles are separate, whether the Chair of the Board should be selected from the non-employee directors or should be an employee. Our Board believes that it should have the flexibility to make these determinations in the way that it believes best provides appropriate leadership for ImmunoGen at a given time.

Our Board believes that its current leadership structure, with Mr. Enyedy serving as CEO and Mr. McCluski serving as Chair of the Board, is appropriate for ImmunoGen at this time. We believe that this separation is appropriate since the CEO has overall responsibility for all aspects of our operations and implementation of our strategy, while the Chair of the Board has a greater focus on corporate governance, including leadership of the Board, and he facilitates communication between the CEO and the other members of the Board.

What is the Board’s role in risk oversight?

Our Board’s role in risk oversight is to oversee the executive management team to assure that the long-term interests of shareholders are being properly served, including understanding and assessing the principal risks associated with our businesses and operations and reviewing options for the mitigation or management of such risks. The Board as a whole is

12

Table of Contents

responsible for such risk oversight, but administers certain of its risk oversight functions through the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, and the Governance and Nominating Committee.

The Audit Committee is responsible for the oversight of our accounting and financial reporting processes, including our systems of internal accounting control. In addition, the Audit Committee discusses guidelines and policies governing the process by which executive management and the relevant company departments assess and manage ImmunoGen’s exposure to risk and discuss our major financial risk exposures and the steps management has taken to monitor and control such exposures. The Audit Committee is also responsible for the oversight of our corporate compliance function and the integrity of our information technology systems, processes, and data.

The Compensation Committee evaluates our compensation policies and practices from the perspectives of whether they support organizational objectives and shareholder interests, and whether or not they create incentives for inappropriate risk-taking. The Compensation Committee is also responsible for the oversight of our human capital management policies and initiatives.

The Governance and Nominating Committee is responsible for the oversight of our environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) strategies, initiatives, and policies, and the Company’s associated risk exposure.

What committees has the Board established?

The Board of Directors has standing Audit, Compensation, and Governance and Nominating Committees. In addition, the Board of Directors has a Clinical Committee, which assists the Board in oversight of the Company’s research and development programs. Each of these committees, except the Clinical Committee, acts under a written charter, copies of which can be found on ImmunoGen’s website at www.immunogen.com on the Investor and Media page under “Corporate Governance.”

Each of the Audit, Compensation, and Governance and Nominating Committees is authorized to obtain advice and assistance from independent compensation consultants, outside legal counsel, and other advisors as it deems appropriate, at ImmunoGen’s expense.

Audit Committee

The Audit Committee is comprised of Stephen C. McCluski, Tracey L. McCain, Kristine Peterson, and Richard J. Wallace, with Mr. McCluski as Chair.

Our accounting and financial reporting principles, policies, practices, and procedures;
The adequacy of our systems of internal accounting control;
The quality, integrity, and transparency of our financial statements;
Our compliance with all legal and regulatory requirements; and
The effectiveness and scope of our Code of Corporate Conduct.

The Audit Committee also reviews the qualifications, independence, and performance of our independent registered public accounting firm and pre-approves all audit and non-audit services provided by such firm and its fees.

The Audit Committee also is responsible for reviewing and approving related person transactions in accordance with our written related person transaction policy.

Our Board has also determined that Mr. McCluski and Ms. Peterson each qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” under SEC rules. Please also see the report of the Audit Committee set forth elsewhere in this proxy statement.

Compensation Committee

The Compensation Committee is comprised of Dean J. Mitchell, Mark A. Goldberg M.D., and Stuart A. Arbuckle, with Mr. Mitchell as Chair.

Setting the compensation of our executive officers;
Overseeing the administration of our incentive compensation plans, including the annual bonus objectives and our equity-based compensation and incentive plans, discharging its responsibilities as provided for under such plans, and approving awards of incentive compensation under such plans;

Governance and Nominating Committee

The Governance and Nominating Committee is comprised of Kristine Peterson, Mark A. Goldberg M.D., Helen Thackray M.D., and Richard J. Wallace, with Ms. Peterson as Chair. All members of the Governance and Nominating Committee qualify as independent under the definition promulgated by the SEC and Nasdaq. The Governance and Nominating Committee is responsible for:

Identifying and recommending to the Board individuals qualified to serve as directors;
Recommending to the Board directors to serve on committees of the Board;
Advising the Board with respect to matters of Board composition and procedures;
Reviewing our corporate governance guidelines and making recommendations of any changes to the Board;
Overseeing the process by which the Board and its committees assess their effectiveness;
Reviewing the compensation for non-employee directors and making recommendations of any changes to the Board;
Overseeing the administration of our share ownership guidelines for non-employee directors; and
Overseeing our environmental, social, and governance strategy, initiatives, and policies.

How often did the Board and committees meet during 2022?

Our Board of Directors met or acted by unanimous written consent nine times during 2022. The Audit, Compensation, and Governance and Nominating Committees met or acted by unanimous written consent seven, 18, and four times, respectively, during 2022. All of the directors attended at least 75% of the meetings of the Board of Directors and committees of the Board on which they served.

Does ImmunoGen have a policy regarding director attendance at annual meetings of the shareholders?

It is the Board’s policy that, absent unusual circumstances, all director nominees standing for election will attend our annual meetings of shareholders. All of our directors attended our 2022 annual meeting of shareholders.

Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation

During 2022, Messrs. Mitchell and Arbuckle, and Dr. Goldberg served on the Compensation Committee. No member of the committee is a present or former officer or employee of ImmunoGen or any of its subsidiaries or had any business relationship or affiliation with ImmunoGen or any of its subsidiaries (other than his service as a director) requiring disclosure in this proxy statement.

Does ImmunoGen have a Code of Corporate Conduct?

Yes. We have adopted a Code of Corporate Conduct applicable to our officers, directors, and employees. The code is posted on our website at www.immunogen.com on the Investors & Media page under “Corporate Governance.” We intend to satisfy our disclosure requirements regarding any amendment to, or waiver of, a provision of our Code of Corporate Conduct by disclosing such matters on our website. Shareholders may request copies of our Code of Corporate Conduct free of charge by writing to ImmunoGen, Inc., 830 Winter Street, Waltham, MA 02451, attention: Secretary.

Does ImmunoGen have a written policy governing related person transactions?

Yes. We have adopted a written policy that provides for the review and approval by the Audit Committee of transactions involving ImmunoGen in which a related person is known to have a direct or indirect interest and that are required to be reported under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K promulgated by the SEC. For purposes of this policy, a related person includes: (1) any of our directors, director nominees, or executive officers; (2) any known beneficial owner of more than 5% of any class of our voting securities; or (3) any immediate family member of any of the foregoing. In situations where it is impractical to wait until the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Audit Committee or to convene a special meeting of the Audit Committee, the Chair of the Audit Committee has been delegated authority to review and approve related person transactions. Transactions subject to this policy may be pursued only if the Audit Committee (or the Chair of the Audit Committee acting pursuant to delegated authority) determines in good faith that, based on all the facts and circumstances available, the transactions are in, or are not inconsistent with, the best interests of ImmunoGen and its shareholders.

In February 2023, we entered into a global, multi-target license and option agreement granting Vertex Pharmaceuticals (Vertex) rights to conduct research using our ADC technology to discover novel targeted conditioning agents for use with gene editing in exchange for a $15 million upfront payment and up to $337 million in potential option exercise fees, development and commercial milestones, and tiered royalties on a per target basis, which was approved by our board of directors. One of our directors, Stuart A. Arbuckle, currently serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Vertex, and recused himself from the discussion and approval of the Company’s transaction with Vertex.

We are not aware of any other related party transactions since the beginning of our last fiscal year that would require disclosure pursuant to Item 404 of Regulation S-K of the Exchange Act or our related person transaction policy.

Does ImmunoGen have a written policy prohibiting certain transactions in its shares, such as hedging transactions?

Yes. Such policy is described elsewhere in this proxy statement under “Compensation Discussion and Analysis – Additional Compensation Policies and Practices.”

Does ImmunoGen have a clawback policy related to executive compensation?

Yes. Such policy is described elsewhere in this proxy statement under “Compensation Discussion and Analysis – Additional Compensation Policies and Practices.”

ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND GOVERNANCE

At ImmunoGen, our mission is to deliver the next generation of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) to improve outcomes for cancer patients. By generating targeted therapies with enhanced anti-tumor activity and favorable tolerability profiles, we aim to disrupt the progression of cancer and offer patients more good days. We call this our commitment to “target a better now.”. To achieve this mission, we have built a purpose-driven culture focused on the values of putting people first, innovation, accountability, and teamwork. As part of the integration of these values into our business, we look to manage our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities.

Our Board delegates oversight of the Company’s ESG strategy to the Governance and Nominating Committee. The Governance and Nominating Committee receives regular reports from management regarding the Company’s ESG efforts and provides the Board with ESG updates. The Company’s human capital and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) strategy and policies are overseen by the Compensation Committee in collaboration with the Governance and Nominating Committee. Senior management regularly informs the Compensation Committee of human capital and DEI developments to support our commitment to attract, retain, and develop the highest quality talent now and in the future.

In 2022, management worked with external ESG experts to assess and identify the Company’s potential material ESG focus areas. The results of the study were reviewed and discussed with the Governance and Nominating Committee. ImmunoGen then established an ESG Steering Committee of senior leaders to drive the development of our ESG strategy and manage the risks and opportunities associated with our material ESG focus areas. The ESG Steering Committee is comprised

15

Table of Contents

of leaders representing our human resources, legal, financial, technical operations, and research and development functions, and meets regularly with our President and CEO and our Executive Committee. This year, the ESG Steering Committee will work with the Governance and Nominating Committee to prioritize the material ESG focus areas and topics, which will then serve as the foundation of the Company’s ESG strategy and near-term action plan.

DIRECTOR COMPENSATION

How are the directors compensated?

Directors who are also ImmunoGen employees receive no additional compensation for serving on the Board of Directors. Our Compensation Policy for Non-Employee Directors consists of three elements: cash compensation, deferred stock units, and stock options.

During 2022, the Compensation Committee’s independent compensation consultant, the Human Capital Solutions practice at Aon plc (“Aon”, formerly known as Radford), conducted an analysis of the Company’s non-employee director compensation program as compared to those of the peer group of companies used in assessing compensation for the Company’s executive officers. No changes were made to the non-employee director compensation program for 2022 based on this analysis. Below is a summary of the Compensation Policy for Non-Employee Directors, as in effect during 2022.

Cash Compensation

Each non-employee director receives an annual fee of $45,000. In addition, the Chair of the Board (or if the Chair is not a non-employee director, the lead independent director) receives an additional annual fee of $35,000, the Chair of the Audit Committee receives an additional annual fee of $20,000, and the Chairs of the Compensation Committee and the Governance and Nominating Committee each receives an additional annual fee of $15,000. Other members of the Audit Committee receive an additional annual fee of $10,000, and other members of the Compensation Committee, the Governance and Nominating Committee, and the Clinical Committee each receive an additional annual fee of $7,500. All of these annual fees are paid in quarterly installments in, at each director’s election, either cash or deferred stock units. Directors are also reimbursed for their reasonable expenses incurred in connection with attendance at Board and committee meetings.

Deferred Stock Units

Non-employee directors receive deferred stock units as follows:

New non-employee directors are initially awarded 30,000 deferred stock units (“DSUs”), with each unit relating to one share of our common stock. These awards vest quarterly over three years from the date of grant, contingent upon the individual remaining a director of ImmunoGen as of each vesting date.
Non-employee directors are annually awarded 15,000 DSUs. These awards vest quarterly over approximately one year from the date of grant (generally the date of the annual meeting of shareholders), contingent upon the individual remaining a director of ImmunoGen as of each vesting date. If a non-employee director is first elected to the Board other than at an annual meeting of shareholders, the number of DSUs subject to such non-employee director’s first annual DSU award is pro-rated, based on the number of days between his or her date of election and the date of grant of his or her first annual DSU award. If a non-employee director is first elected to the Board at an annual meeting of shareholders, he or she will not receive his or her first annual DSU award until the following year.

Vested DSUs are redeemed on the date a director ceases to be a member of the Board, at which time such director’s DSUs will generally be settled in shares of our common stock issued under the ImmunoGen, Inc. Amended and Restated 2018 Employee, Director and Consultant Equity Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”) (or one of our predecessor equity plans, the ImmunoGen, Inc. 2016 Employee, Director and Consultant Equity Plan (as amended and restated, the “2016 Plan”) or the ImmunoGen, Inc. 2006 Employee, Director and Consultant Equity Incentive Plan (the “2006 Plan”), depending on the grant date of the deferred stock units) at a rate of one share for each vested deferred stock unit then held. Any DSUs that remain unvested at that time will be forfeited. All unvested deferred stock units will automatically vest immediately prior to the occurrence of a change of control, as defined in the 2018 Plan (or the substantially identical definition in the 2016 Plan or the 2006 Plan, as applicable).

Stock Options

Non-employee directors also receive stock option awards as follows:

When a non-employee director is first elected to the Board, the individual receives a stock option award covering 44,000 shares of our common stock, ImmunoGen’s 2018 which vests quarterly over three years from the date of grant. These awards have an exercise price equal to the closing price of our common stock on the date of grant and

16

Table of Contents

will expire on the tenth anniversary of the date of grant, contingent upon the individual remaining a director of ImmunoGen during such period.
Non-employee directors receive an annual stock option award covering 44,000 shares of our common stock. These awards have an exercise price equal to the closing price of our common stock on the date of grant (generally the date of the annual meeting of shareholders), vest quarterly over approximately one year from the date of grant and expire on the tenth anniversary of the date of grant, contingent upon the individual remaining a director of ImmunoGen during such period. If a non-employee director is first elected to the Board other than at an annual meeting of shareholders, the number of shares covered by such non-employee director’s first annual stock award is pro-rated, based on the number of days between his or her date of election and the date of grant of his or her first annual stock option award. If a non-employee director is first elected to the Board at an annual meeting of shareholders, he or she will not receive his or her first annual stock option award until the following year.

All unvested stock option awards granted to non-employee directors will automatically vest immediately as of the date of a change of control, as defined in the 2018 Plan (or the substantially identical definition in the 2016 Plan or the 2006 Plan, as applicable).

The Governance and Nominating Committee will periodically review the size of the foregoing deferred stock unit and stock option awards to ensure that, in light of changes in the market price of our common stock, these awards are generally aligned with equity awards granted to the non-employee directors of our peer group.

Compensation paid to the non-employee members of our Board of Directors with respect to 2022 was as follows:

(1)This column represents the annual fees described above and includes the grant date fair value of deferred stock units which a director has elected to receive in lieu of cash. For calendar year 2022, all of the outside directors elected to be paid their annual fees in cash, except that Dr. Goldberg, Ms. McCain, and Mr. Mitchell elected to be paid 100% of their annual fees in deferred stock units.
(2)The amounts shown in this column represent the aggregate grant date fair value of the deferred stock units credited to non-employee directors during 2022, which have been calculated in each case by multiplying the number of units by the closing price of our common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on the date(s) as of which such units were credited to the non-employee director. This column does not include the fair value of deferred stock units received in lieu of cash fees described in the preceding footnote.
(3)The amounts shown in this column represent the aggregate grant date fair value of the stock option awards granted to non-employee directors during 2022, which have been calculated in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718 using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

What changes were made to the Compensation Policy for Non-Employee Directors regarding compensation for 2023?

In December 2022, after reviewing additional analysis prepared by Aon, the Compensation Committee’s independent compensation consultant, the Board of Directors approved and adopted certain changes to the non-employee director compensation policy. The amendments to the policy were adopted to provide additional flexibility in the form of non-employee director compensation; however, no changes were made to the amounts of cash or equity compensation payable or to be awarded for 2023 under the amended policy. In general, the changes to the policy provide: (i) an additional option for a non-employee director to elect to receive his or her annual Board and committee fees in the form of shares of our common stock, (ii) initial equity awards in the form of restricted stock units (“RSUs”), instead of deferred stock units, with vesting as to one-third of the RSUs granted on each of the first three anniversaries of the initial grant; (iii) annual equity awards in the form of RSUs instead of DSUs, with vesting as to one hundred percent of such award occurring on the first anniversary of the grant; (iv) for the vesting of all unvested RSUs upon the death or disability of a director or, in the event of a Change in Control (as defined in the 2018 Plan); (v) for the opportunity to defer or re-defer RSU and/or DSU awards granted to a non-employee director, at the election of the director; (vi) for the vesting of a pro rata portion of any then-unvested stock options upon a director’s death or disability; (vii) for the vesting of all then-unvested stock options upon a Change in Control (as defined in the 2018 Plan); and (viii) the directors with the ability to exercise outstanding and vested stock options until the earlier of (a) the end of the 18-month period measured from a director’s date of retirement or (b) the expiration date for such stock options specified in the applicable option agreement.

Are the outside directors subject to share ownership guidelines?

Yes. Our Board of Directors adopted, effective as of July 1, 2014, share ownership guidelines for our non-employee directors. The guidelines provide that non-employee directors are expected to own shares of our common stock having an aggregate value equal to at least three times the annual meeting fee (whether such fee is paid in cash or, at the director’s option, in deferred stock units), excluding Lead Director/Chair of the Board and committee-related fees. Mr. McCluski, Dr. Goldberg, Mr. Mitchell, Ms. Peterson, and Mr. Wallace had five years from the date of the 2014 annual meeting of shareholders to achieve the ownership requirement. Mr. Arbuckle, Ms. McCain, and Dr. Thackray (who became directors in 2018, 2021, and 2021, respectively) have a similar five-year period following their initial elections to the Board. The directors’ compliance with the ownership guidelines are subsequently reassessed every three years after the initial five-year measurement date. The directors may satisfy the guidelines with shares owned directly or indirectly in a trust or by a spouse and/or minor children, vested deferred stock units, and vested stock options. In the case of deferred stock units or stock options, the aggregate exercise price or other cash consideration, if any, required to be paid for such shares is deducted in determining the aggregate value of the shares represented by such awards.

As of their most recent measurement date, Mr. McCluski, Dr. Goldberg, Mr. Mitchell, Ms. Peterson, and Mr. Wallace met the ownership threshold in our guidelines. The next measurement date for these directors will be November 11, 2025. The initial measurement dates will be June 20, 2023 for Mr. Arbuckle, and June 16, 2027 for Ms. McCain and Dr. Thackray.

2022 Compensation Highlights

Our compensation program is well-structured to incentivize our leadership team to focus on the strategic objectives that, when achieved, will help to create shareholder value. To this end, we regularly evaluate and make changes to our executive compensation program to ensure that our approach aligns with shareholder interests as well as with competitive and appropriate pay practices for our industry.

Annual Incentive Plan Payout

2022 was a transformative year for the Company evidenced by our first product approval and launch. After considering our overall performance, including the need for greater focus on financial management and the level of execution across the entire portfolio, our Compensation Committee determined that the corporate objectives under our annual incentive plan were achieved at 90% of target for NEOs.

Continued Strong Say-on-Pay Support

Our annual “say-on-pay” proposal received the support of over 98% of votes cast at our annual shareholder meeting held in June 2022. The Compensation Committee believes this reflects strong shareholder support for not only the executive compensation program structure and pay philosophy, but also for the steps that the committee has taken in the last several years to improve the executive compensation program, incorporate shareholder feedback, and navigate the uncertainties brought on by the pandemic. While this level of support is encouraging, the committee will continue to seek shareholder feedback on our executive compensation program to ensure that executive interests continue to be closely aligned with shareholder perspectives and interests.

How Our Pay Program Works

The Compensation Committee has structured our executive compensation program to ensure that our NEOs are compensated in a manner consistent with shareholder interests as well as with competitive and appropriate pay practices for our industry. The following are important features of the design and operation of our executive compensation program:

22

Table of Contents

Components of Pay

The components of our executive compensation program consist primarily of elements that are available to all of our employees, including base salary, annual performance-based bonuses, long-term equity awards, and broad-based benefits.

Base Salary

Base salaries provide the only fixed pay element of our program and are set to be competitive with our peers, while reflecting an executive officer’s responsibilities, demonstrated performance, and expected future contributions.

Annual Performance-Based Bonuses

An annual cash incentive award pool is determined based on the achievement of certain corporate strategic goals, which can range from 0% to 150%. After the bonus pool is established, an individual performance multiplier is applied. This multiplier, which can range from 0% to 125%, is based on achievement against pre-established individual objectives, as evaluated by the CEO for the other NEOs (the CEO award is entirely tied to corporate objectives, which are approved by the Compensation Committee), and then multiplied by the corporate performance percentage to determine an individual’s earned bonus for the year.

Long-Term Equity Awards

Long-term equity awards provide a retention vehicle for our executives while incentivizing executives to deliver long-term shareholder value.

For 2022, our NEOs were granted time-vesting options. In 2020, our NEOs (other than Ms. Lentini and Dr. Vasconcelles) also received performance-based stock options that may be earned only upon the achievement of key operational goals over a four-year period.

Broad-based Benefits

Broad-based benefits provide financial insurance and health and retirement support for our employees and reward them for the commitment we expect from them while employed by us.

Target Pay Mix

The Compensation Committee does not apply a specific formula for allocating total compensation among the various components. Instead, the Compensation Committee uses its judgment, in consultation with Aon, the Compensation Committee’s independent executive compensation consultant, to establish a mix of current, short-term, and long-term incentive compensation, and cash and equity compensation, for each NEO. As can be seen in the graphs below, a large percentage of executive pay is variable and “at-risk” (86% for the CEO, and 74% on average for other NEOs), meaning that value will only be received by the executive if corporate and stock price performance are strong. Our use of a substantial level of variable and “at risk” compensation supports our pay-for-performance culture and pay program. The balance between these components may change from year to year based on corporate strategy and objectives, among other considerations.

For 2022, excluding Dr. Vasconcelles, our NEOs had the following target pay mix:

Pay and Performance

The Compensation Committee has designed an executive compensation program that carefully balances our desire to attract, retain, and motivate the industry’s top talent, while focusing on creating long-term sustainable growth in shareholder value. We believe that the foundation of our program is a pay-for-performance philosophy. As indicated below in the graphic of CEO pay over the past three years, the reported pay value – pay that is displayed in the Summary Compensation Table – is much different than the realizable pay that the CEO may actually receive. The value of our CEO pay packages as of the end of the last three fiscal years are displayed in the green bars. The significant difference in values is attributable to share price movement and reflects a clear picture of our pay-for-performance philosophy in action, as well as an example of how management and shareholder interests are closely aligned. Specifically, as of year-end 2022, due to the decline in the share price, 63% of Mr. Enyedy’s options were underwater, and, therefore were not realizable.

Graphic

“Reported CEO Pay” is the value reported in the Summary Compensation Table for base salary, non-equity incentive compensation, and option awards, adjusted to include, for 2020, the grant date value of performance-based awards granted in such year, assuming performance goals are met in full; and adjusted to exclude, for 2021, $1.1 million of incremental fair value pursuant to FASB ASC Topic 718 resulting from a modification of the performance-based awards granted in 2020.

“Realizable CEO Pay” is defined as the compensation earned or deliverable for each year, including salary received, actual annual bonus received, and the intrinsic value of stock options granted in that year (including performance-based awards assuming performance goals are met in full), as valued on December 31, 2022 using the year-end share price of $4.96 per share.

Our Executive Compensation Philosophy and Objectives

Our executive compensation philosophy is designed to enable us to attract, retain, and motivate key executives to achieve our long-term objective of creating significant shareholder value through our antibody-drug conjugate technology and expertise. In this regard, we set executive compensation with two principal goals: first, generally to align fixed compensation and target incentive compensation with the market median for our peer group; and second, to align a substantial portion of that compensation with the creation of long-term value for our shareholders.

Attracting and retaining key executives is particularly challenging in the biotechnology industry, where executives are required to remain focused and committed throughout years of product development, regulatory approvals, and, at times, financial instability. The market for executive talent in our industry is highly competitive, with many biotechnology companies that are at a similar stage of development located in general proximity to our corporate office outside of Boston, Massachusetts.

II.Process for Setting Executive Compensation

Role of the Compensation Committee

The Compensation Committee has responsibility for establishing our executive compensation philosophy and the design of our executive compensation program, as well as for determining the level of compensation awarded to our NEOs. Information about the Compensation Committee, including its composition, responsibilities, and processes, can be found elsewhere in this proxy statement.

In addition to evaluating our executives’ contributions and performance in light of corporate objectives and individual performance, we also base our compensation decisions on market considerations. The Compensation Committee benchmarks our cash and equity incentive compensation against programs available to executive officers in comparable roles at peer companies. All forms of compensation are evaluated relative to the market median for our peer group. Individual compensation pay levels may vary from this reference point based on recent individual performance and other considerations, including breadth of experience, the anticipated out-of-pocket costs and level of difficulty in replacing an executive with someone of comparable experience and skill, and the initial compensation levels required to attract qualified new hires.

25

Table of Contents

Role of Independent Compensation Consultant

The Compensation Committee retained the services of Aon as its independent executive compensation consultant due to its extensive analytical and compensation expertise in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. In this capacity, Aon has advised the Compensation Committee on compensation matters related to the executive and director compensation programs. In 2022, Aon assisted the Compensation Committee with, among other things:

executive and director market pay analysis;
reviewing and suggesting changes to the compensation peer group;
developing and refining of executive and director pay programs; and
drafting this CD&A and other proxy statement disclosures.

The Compensation Committee has the sole authority to engage and terminate Aon’s services, as well as to approve Aon’s compensation. Aon makes recommendations to the Compensation Committee but has no authority to make compensation decisions on our behalf or on behalf of the Compensation Committee. Aon reported to the Compensation Committee and had direct access to the Chair and the other members of the Compensation Committee. Beyond advice related to the executive and director compensation programs as described above, Aon provided ESG-related support to the Governance and Nominating Committee. Aon did not provide any other services to us in 2022.

The Compensation Committee conducted a specific review of its relationship with Aon in the past year and determined that Aon’s work for the Compensation Committee did not raise any conflicts of interest. Aon’s work has conformed to the independence factors and guidance provided by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the SEC, and Nasdaq.

Role of Management

To aid the Compensation Committee in its responsibilities, the CEO presents to the Compensation Committee his assessment of the performance and achievements for each of the NEOs (other than himself) for the prior year. The Compensation Committee gives considerable weight to the CEO’s performance evaluations of the other NEOs, since he has direct knowledge of the criticality of their work, performance, and contributions. Our CEO does not participate in the Compensation Committee’s deliberations or decisions regarding his own compensation.

The Compensation Committee has delegated to our CEO the authority to grant stock options and restricted stock awards under our 2018 Plan to individuals who are not subject to the reporting and other requirements of Section 16 of the Exchange Act, subject to guidelines established by the Compensation Committee.

Use of Market Data and Peer Group Analysis

When considering executive compensation decisions, the Compensation Committee believes it is important to be informed as to the current compensation practices of comparable publicly held companies in the life sciences industry, especially to understand the competitive compensation required to attract and retain individuals with the necessary specific expertise and experience.

As in prior years, the Compensation Committee considered numerous factors when setting executive pay levels for 2022. While the Compensation Committee believes that referencing peer group compensation levels as part of the pay setting process is helpful in determining market-competitive compensation for our executives, it does not tie any pay elements directly to specific benchmarks within the peer group. Instead, the Compensation Committee considers peer data as part of a market-check analysis that is used in conjunction with its assessments of numerous other factors, including: a review of industry survey data; employee knowledge, skill, and experience; individual performance and contribution; scope of current and expected future responsibilities; and any retention concerns.

2022 Peer Group

In September 2021, based on the recommendations and assistance of Aon, the Compensation Committee reviewed the members of our then-current peer group to determine if each peer company continued to be an appropriate reference point for purposes of making 2022 executive compensation decisions. The Compensation Committee considered several factors in determining the appropriate peer group for 2022, including:

Sector: U.S.-based public, biopharmaceutical companies
Stage of development: Late-stage (Phase 3) pre-commercial companies to reflect our talent market
Market capitalization: Generally, between $350M and $3.4B in market value
Number of employees: headcount between 0 and 250 employees

26

Table of Contents

Using the aforementioned criteria, in consultation with Aon, the Compensation Committee determined that the 2022 peer group would consist of the following 21 companies:

Agenus*

Enanta Pharmaceuticals

MacroGenics

Albireo Pharma

Epizyme

Rhythm Pharmaceuticals

Atara Biotherapeutics

G1 Therapeutics

Rigel Pharmaceuticals

BioCryst Pharmaceuticals

Geron

Sangamo Therapeutics

Cara Therapeutics

Global Blood Therapeutics*

Syndax Pharmaceuticals

ChemoCentryx*

Karyopharm Therapeutics

TG Therapeutics

Cytokinetics

Kura Oncology*

Xencor*

* New for 2022

For 2022, Corbus Pharmaceuticals, CytomX Therapeutics, GlycoMimetics, Syros Pharmaceuticals, and XBiotech were removed as a result of not meeting market capitalization selection criteria.

Compensation Risk Oversight

Our compensation program aims to avoid any incentives for executives to take imprudent risks that might harm us or our shareholders. Our Compensation Committee has reviewed the compensation program with regards to compensation-related risk, based in part on an assessment of our Company’s executive compensation programs by its independent consultant, and concluded that our compensation policies and practices are not reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on us.

III.Elements of Compensation

Our overall executive compensation program consists of fixed elements, such as base salary and benefits, and variable performance-based elements, such as annual and long-term incentives. Our fixed compensation elements are designed to provide a predictable source of income to our executives. Our variable performance-based elements are designed to reward performance at three levels: individual performance, actual corporate performance compared to annual business goals, and long-term shareholder value creation.

We compensate our executives principally through base salary, performance-based annual cash incentives, and equity awards. Additionally, executives generally receive sign-on cash incentives upon hire. The objective of this approach is to remain competitive with other companies in our industry, while ensuring that our executives are given the appropriate incentives to achieve near-term objectives and at the same time create long-term shareholder value.

Base Salaries

We provide our executive officers with a level of fixed cash compensation in the form of a base salary that reflects their scope of responsibility and organizational impact, as well as individual performance. In setting salaries for our executive officers, the Compensation Committee reviews independently prepared surveys of biotechnology industry compensation as well as other available information on base salaries in our peer group for executive officers in comparable positions.

When setting base salaries, considerations include, but are not limited to:

each executive officer’s position and specific responsibilities;
recent individual performance;
level and breadth of experience;
achievement of corporate and strategic goals;
a review of competitive pay levels at comparable positions at peer companies;
retention considerations, including the anticipated level of difficulty in replacing an executive with someone of comparable experience and skill; and
the compensation levels required to attract qualified new hires.

27

Table of Contents

The Compensation Committee does not apply any specific formulas to determine increases in base salaries for our executive officers, but instead makes an evaluation of the aforementioned considerations. In setting base salaries for our executive officers (other than the CEO), the Compensation Committee will also consider the recommendation of the CEO and the CEO’s evaluation of each executive’s respective performance.

Based on the foregoing considerations, the Compensation Committee adjusted base salaries for our NEOs for 2022, effective as of March 1, 2022, as follows:

2 Dr. Vasconcelles joined the Company on December 29, 2022. All components of Dr. Vasconcelles’ compensation, including his base salary, were determined by negotiation and in accordance with the principles set forth above, including his position and specific responsibilities at the Company, his senior level and breadth of experience, a review of competitive executive pay levels at comparable positions at peer companies, retention considerations, and the compensation level required to entice him to join the Company.

Annual Performance-Based Cash Incentives

Historically, we have provided our executives with short-term incentive compensation through our annual cash incentive program. We believe that annual incentives hold executives accountable, reward executives based on actual business results, and help create a “pay-for-performance” culture.

2022 Incentive Opportunities

Under our annual cash incentive plan, every employee, including each NEO, has an established annual performance-based incentive target, which is equal to a percentage of the employee’s base salary. This percentage increases as levels of responsibility increase. A participant’s annual base salary and target cash incentive opportunity as of the last day of the performance period are generally used to calculate earned incentives. The actual earned annual incentive amount, (“AIP”), if any, is calculated based on the achievement of corporate and individual goals and objectives. For 2022, our NEOs had the following annual cash incentive opportunities:

The 2022 target incentive opportunities were increased from 2021 targets for all continuing NEOs, excluding our CEO and Ms. Lentini. These increases from 35% to 40% were established in consideration of market data, peer practices, and related considerations.

Table of Contents

2022 Performance Criteria

For NEOs other than our CEO, annual incentives are based on two sets of objectives: corporate and individual. Our CEO’s annual incentives are based solely on corporate objectives.

First, the Compensation Committee annually establishes key performance criteria, based upon the corporate goals and objectives for the year, and evaluates our performance against those criteria in its determination of whether annual bonuses will be paid to our employees, including our executives. Key corporate performance criteria may include any or all of the following:

our actual financial performance against specified metrics in our operating plan for the applicable year;
achievement of certain research, development, manufacturing, and regulatory milestones, including internal product development advancement;
achievement of certain sales and commercial objectives;
achievement of certain financing objectives;
the creation and achievement of business development opportunities; and
execution of organizational initiatives designed to strengthen our corporate culture and better align it with our strategic objectives.

In establishing key performance criteria for the annual incentive program, the Compensation Committee selects specific corporate objectives directed primarily to the future success of our business and the creation of long-term shareholder value.

For 2022, the Compensation Committee established the key corporate performance criteria to be used in determining annual cash incentives. However, consistent with recent practice, the Compensation Committee chose to not assign weights to specific criteria, preferring to take a more holistic view of our achievements against the corporate objectives, as well as considerations, where warranted, of exemplary performance.

Once achievement versus corporate objectives is determined, our CEO will evaluate the other executive officers’ achievement against pre-established individual objectives and, based on these evaluations, the Compensation Committee will determine a percentage for each executive officer that can range from 0% to 125%, which percentage will then be applied to the corporate performance percentage to determine the executive officer’s payout. Our CEO’s payout under our annual incentive plan is based solely on the corporate performance percentage.

To illustrate, annual cash incentives are determined as follows (for all employees other than the CEO, whose annual incentive opportunity does not contain an “Individual Objectives” component, as discussed above):

Graphic

2022 Corporate Objectives

The Compensation Committee determines an overall bonus pool consisting of a percentage of the aggregate target cash incentives for all eligible employees based on the achievement of pre-established corporate objectives. The percentage may range from 0% to 150%. If the Compensation Committee determines that, based on its evaluation of our performance toward the corporate objectives, the earned incentive percentage would be less than 50% of target, then no cash incentives would be paid. Establishing a corporate performance percentage exceeding 100% would be based on the Compensation Committee’s determination of exceptional performance.

After considering our performance versus these corporate objectives, the Compensation Committee approved a 90% corporate performance achievement level for our NEOs for 2022.

Individual Objectives

Individual performance multipliers for each NEO (other than the CEO, whose annual incentive opportunity is entirely tied to corporate objectives) were determined by the Compensation Committee after receiving our CEO’s evaluation of the other executive officers’ achievement against pre-established individual objectives and his recommendation regarding each officer’s individual performance multiplier. These individual objectives were tailored based on the executive’s role, responsibilities, and oversight.

For 2022, these individual objectives were as follows:

1 Annual incentive opportunities are based on salary at the end of the fiscal year.

2 Dr. Vasconcelles joined the Company on December 29, 2022 and was not eligible to receive an annual bonus for fiscal 2022.

3 As agreed by Dr. Altschuller and the Company, Dr. Altschuller did not receive an annual bonus payment for 2022.

Sign-On and Retention Cash Incentives

Sign-on cash incentives are a standard component of our executive compensation program as it relates to new hire compensation. The CEO recommends to the Compensation Committee a sign-on cash incentive amount for new executive officers based on the individual’s role, experience, and market conditions. The Compensation Committee ultimately determines the amount of the sign-on cash incentive to be awarded.

In 2022, a sign-on cash incentive in the amount of $300,000 was awarded to Dr. Vasconcelles as a component of his total compensation. If, within 12 months of his hire date, Dr. Vasconcelles terminates his employment with us (other than by reason of death or disability), or we terminate his employment for cause, he must reimburse ImmunoGen a pro rata amount of the sign-on incentive (based on a period of 365 days) within 30 days of the respective termination date.

In 2022, in connection with Ms. Lentini’s appointment as interim Chief Financial Officer, a retention bonus equal to 30% of her base salary was awarded to Ms. Lentini, which is payable on October 1, 2023, subject to her continued employment on such date. The Compensation Committee awarded this retention bonus to Ms. Lentini to provide an additional means of incentivizing Ms. Lentini to remain at the Company as the Company was undergoing a search for a permanent Chief Financial Officer.

Equity Awards

Equity compensation is a key component of our executive compensation program. Our equity incentive plans are designed to retain our executive officers and other employees and align their long-term interests with the creation of long-term value for our shareholders.

The Compensation Committee determines the size of equity grants according to each executive officer’s position. To do so, the committee references peer group data and practices as provided by Aon. The Compensation Committee also considers each executive’s recent performance history, his or her potential for future responsibility, and criticality of his or her work to the long-term success of our company, among other factors. The Compensation Committee has the discretion to give relative weight to each of these factors as it determines an appropriate size of equity grants.

Historically, we have primarily relied on stock options to provide a long-term incentive for our executives to focus on creating long-term value and to help us to attract and retain key talent. We believe, as a general matter, that stock options provide an effective long-term incentive for all employees to create shareholder value as the benefit of the options cannot be realized unless there is an appreciation in the price of our common stock following the date they are granted. Stock option

32

Table of Contents

awards are commonly provided to a broad range of employees in the biotechnology industry due to the competitive nature of the industry.

In 2020, we granted performance-based stock options in addition to time-vesting stock options. This decision was based, in part, on shareholder input and was confirmed through market analysis as an appropriate addition to our equity program. Each of these performance-based stock options vest subject to the achievement of certain key goals over a four-year performance period. During 2022, twenty-five percent (25%) and fifty percent (50%) of the award vested based on acceptance of a BLA and receipt of accelerated marketing approval for mirvetuximab by the FDA, respectively, based on data from our SORAYA clinical trial, and the remaining 25% is eligible to vest based on the full marketing approval by December 31, 2023 of a BLA for mirvetuximab by the FDA based on data from our MIRASOL clinical trial.

The first performance goal was contingent on the Company completing its submission of such BLA to the FDA on or prior to December 31, 2021. However, due to unanticipated delays in the clinical development of mirvetuximab that were primarily related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Compensation Committee determined that this deadline was not aligned with the original purpose of the award and used its authority to extend the deadline to April 30, 2022. No other modifications were made to these awards.

The 2020 performance-based stock options provide a significant and ongoing performance-based incentive that aligns management’s interests with the achievement of key strategic and operational goals of the Company. As such, the Compensation Committee determined that it was appropriate to grant only time-based stock options in the annual equity granting cycle of 2022. The Compensation Committee determined not to grant additional performance-based incentives in 2022 given that the outstanding 2020 awards continue to provide an incentive through 2023 based on important clinical and regulatory milestones. For 2023, the Compensation Committee shifted the equity mix to a blend of 75% stock options and 25% restricted stock units. This change was made to help the company deliver appropriate incentives, support retention, manage dilution and burn rates to shareholders, and to better align with market practice.

The following table shows the 2022 equity awards granted to our NEOs on February 4, 2022, unless otherwise noted:

1 Dr. Vasconcelles received these stock options upon his hire on December 29, 2022.

In accordance with our equity grant practices, the exercise price for these stock option grants was equal to the closing price of our common stock as reported by the Nasdaq Global Select Market on the date of grant.

All time-vesting stock options in the above table vest 25% on the first-year anniversary of the grant date and the balance vests in twelve equal installments of 6.25%, quarterly over the following three years starting one quarter after the first-year anniversary, subject to the executive officer’s continuous provision of service to us. The Compensation Committee provided Dr. Vasconcelles’ sign-on award in the form of stock options consistent with our use of stock options and in consideration of market practices.

The time-vesting restricted stock units were granted to Ms. Lentini on December 22, 2022 by the Compensation Committee in consideration of her appointment as Interim Chief Financial Officer and as a retention vehicle. The restricted stock units will vest as to 40% on the one-year anniversary of the grant date and 60% on the 18-month anniversary of the grant date.

IV.Additional Compensation Policies and Practices

Clawback Policy

We have adopted an incentive compensation recoupment policy that is applicable to our executive officers, and such other of our senior executive team as may be determined by the Compensation Committee. If we determine that we must

33

Table of Contents

restate our financial results as reported in a periodic or other report filed with the SEC to correct an accounting error due to material noncompliance with any financial reporting requirement under the U.S. securities laws, we will seek to recover, at the direction of the Compensation Committee, after it has reviewed the facts and circumstances that led to the requirement of the restatement and the costs and benefits of seeking recovery, incentive compensation, both cash and equity-based, awarded or paid to an officer covered by the policy whose intentional misconduct caused or contributed to the need for the restatement for a fiscal period if a lower award or payment would have been made to such officer based on the restated financial results.

Executive Stock Ownership Guidelines

We also believe that executive compensation will be better aligned with the creation of long-term value for our shareholders if our executive officers maintain a meaningful investment in our shares. In this regard, our Board of Directors adopted, effective as of July 1, 2014, share ownership guidelines affecting our executive officers.

Position

Required Ownership
(as a multiple of base salary)

President and CEO

5x

All other executive officers

Each NEO has five years from the later of the effective date of the guidelines, from their hiring date, or from the date of designation as an executive officer, to achieve the ownership requirement. Our executive officers may satisfy the guidelines with shares owned directly or indirectly in a trust or by a spouse and/or minor children and with vested stock options. In the case of vested stock options, the aggregate exercise price required to be paid for such shares is deducted in determining the aggregate value of the shares represented by such awards.

The Compensation Committee reviewed the results of stock ownership by one of our NEOs at the executive’s first measurement date of July 1, 2022, and found that the executive’s ownership level was below the required minimum amount on this date. Further analysis by the committee determined that the deviation below the required ownership level in this instance was due to unexpected volatility in our common stock and not due to the behavior of the executive given the executive’s sufficient holdings throughout the year leading up to the measurement date. As a result, the Compensation Committee waived the share ownership shortfall as of July 1, 2022 and agreed to reevaluate the executive’s ownership on July 1, 2023.

Anti-Hedging and Pledging Policies

As part of our insider trading policy, we prohibit employees and directors from engaging in transactions that are designed to or have the effect of hedging or offsetting any decrease in the market value of our shares owned by such employees or directors. In particular, our insider trading policy prohibits the following transactions:

Trading in our shares on a short-term basis. Any shares purchased in the open market must be held for a minimum of six months. This rule does not apply to sales made within six months before or after the exercise of options that were granted by us.
Short sales of our shares.
Use of our shares to secure a margin or other loan.
Transactions in straddles, collars, or other similar risk reduction devices.
Transactions in publicly traded options relating to our shares (i.e., options that are not granted by us).

With respect to the last three items described above, the policy does authorize our Chief Legal Officer to approve such transactions in limited cases. However, no director or employee has requested approval to engage in any such transaction, nor has our Chief Legal Officer determined any circumstances under which such approval would be granted.

Broad-Based Benefits

We offer employee benefit programs that are intended to provide financial protection and security for our employees and to reward them for the commitment we expect from them while employed by us. All of our named executive officers are eligible to participate in these programs on the same basis as our other employees.

These benefits include the following: medical, dental, and vision insurance; company-paid group life and accident insurance in an amount equal to two times base salary (up to $750,000); employee-paid supplemental group life and accident insurance (up to $500,000); short- and long-term disability insurance; and a qualified 401(k) retirement savings plan with a

34

Table of Contents

50% company match of the first 6% of the participant’s eligible bi-weekly compensation contributed by the participant to the plan, subject to IRS contribution limits.

Severance Pay Plan for Vice Presidents and Higher

We maintain a severance pay plan for vice presidents and higher in which our NEOs participate. The Compensation Committee recognizes that, in order to induce candidates for executive positions to join us, it has been necessary to offer them certain severance benefits in the event their employment with us is involuntarily terminated without cause outside the context of a change in control.

An executive is entitled to severance benefits under this plan if the executive’s employment is terminated by us without cause outside the context of a change in control. Severance benefits include:

salary continuation for the following specified periods: 18 months in the case of the CEO and 12 months in the case of our other executive officers;
payment of the executive officer’s annual cash bonus, as determined in accordance with our annual bonus program, for the calendar year in which termination occurs, pro-rated to reflect the actual number of days the executive officer was employed during the applicable calendar year;
if an executive officer elects to continue medical coverage in accordance with COBRA, a subsidy of the executive officer’s COBRA premium at the same percentage as we subsidize coverage for similarly situated active employees, for the duration of the salary continuation period; and
outplacement services lasting not less than six months.

No benefits are payable under this plan in circumstances where the executive is entitled to receive severance compensation under the terms of a separate written agreement, including the change in control severance agreements described below.

Change in Control Severance Agreements

We recognize that as a publicly traded company, we may become the target of a proposal that could result in a change in control, and that such possibility and the uncertainty and questions that such a proposal may raise among management could cause our executive officers to leave or could distract them in the performance of their duties, to our detriment and that of our shareholders. We have entered into severance agreements with each of our executive officers that are designed to compensate them for the loss of their positions and the loss of anticipated benefits under their unvested equity compensation awards following a change in control. The agreements are intended to reinforce and encourage the continued attention of our executive officers to their assigned duties without distraction and to ensure the continued availability of each of our executive officers in the event of a proposed change in control transaction. We believe that these objectives are in our best interests and those of our shareholders. We also believe that it is in our best interests and those of our shareholders to offer such agreements to our executive officers insofar as we compete for executive talent in a highly competitive market in which companies routinely offer similar benefits to senior executives.

An executive officer is entitled to severance benefits if, within a period of two months before or 12 months after a change in control, the executive’s employment is terminated (1) by us other than for cause or disability or (2) by the executive for good reason. Severance benefits include:

a lump sum cash payment equal to 1.5 times (or in the case of our CEO, 2 times) the sum of the executive officer’s annual base salary and target annual bonus for the bonus period in which the termination occurs, net of other severance pay;
vesting of 100% of the executive officer’s unvested stock options, unvested restricted stock awards, and other similar rights;
if the executive officer elects to continue medical coverage in accordance with COBRA, a subsidy of the executive officer’s COBRA premium at the same percentage as we subsidized health insurance premiums for the executive officer immediately prior to the date of termination of the executive officer’s employment (or, if more favorable to the executive officer, immediately prior to the consummation of the change in control), for up to 18 months (provided that following the expiration of the CEO’s COBRA coverage period, we will pay a taxable amount to the CEO equal to the COBRA premium subsidy on a monthly basis for a period ending 24 months from the CEO’s termination date); and
payment of the cost of outplacement services up to a maximum of $40,000.

35

Table of Contents

We believe these severance benefits are reasonable and appropriate for our executive officers in light of the anticipated time it takes high-level executives to secure new positions with responsibilities and compensation that are commensurate with their experience. We further believe that the equity awards granted to our executive officers have been reasonable in amount and that, in the event of a loss of employment within a year following a change in control, it is appropriate that our executive officers receive the full benefit under their equity compensation awards of the increase in our value attributable to the performance of the current management team.

Tax and Accounting Implications of Executive Compensation

Generally, Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code disallows a tax deduction to any publicly held corporation for any remuneration in excess of $1 million paid in any taxable year to certain current and former executive officers.

The Compensation Committee believes that it is in the best interests of our shareholders to maintain flexibility in our approach to executive compensation and to structure a program that we consider to be the most effective in attracting, motivating, and retaining key employees even if compensation paid under that program is not deductible in whole or in part.

2)The amounts shown in this column represent one-time sign-on bonuses.
3)The amounts shown in this column represent the aggregate grant date fair value of the time-based stock option and restricted stock unit awards for the years indicated, computed in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718. In 2020, our named executive officers were also granted performance-based stock option awards. Under SEC rules, these performance-based stock option awards were valued based on the probable outcome of the performance conditions associated with these awards, which was determined to be not probable at grant. As a result, no amount in respect of the performance-based stock options granted in 2020 was included in the table above for 2020. The grant date fair value of the performance-based stock option awards, assuming the performance conditions were achieved in full, was $5,092,318 for Mr. Enyedy, $565,225 for Dr. Altschuller, $1,437,489 for Dr. Berkenblit, and $426,283 for Ms. Coen. In 2021, the performance-based stock option awards were modified, resulting in incremental fair value with respect to the modified awards, as determined under FASB ASC Topic 718, assuming the performance conditions are achieved in full, of $1,149,996 for Mr. Enyedy, $99,638 for Dr. Altschuller, $324,628 for Dr. Berkenblit, and $49,740 for Ms. Coen, which amounts are included in the table above.

1)The amounts shown in this column for time-based stock option and restricted stock unit awards represent the aggregate grant date fair value of such awards, computed in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718.
2)The amounts shown in these rows reflect the possible cash amounts that could have been earned upon achievement of the threshold, target, and maximum performance objectives for the annual cash incentive program for 2022. In the case of Mr. Enyedy, whose cash incentive was tied solely to corporate performance, the threshold amount represents 50% of his target incentive, reflecting the minimum achievement required for any payout under the annual cash incentive program based on corporate performance. The maximum represents 150% of his target incentive, the highest percentage that can be achieved for corporate performance. In the case of the remaining executive officers, there was effectively no threshold payment since the Compensation Committee reserved the discretion to determine payouts under the portion of the incentive tied to individual performance without regard to any minimum achievement of previously established goals. The maximum cash incentive in the table is based on the assumption of corporate performance reaching the maximum 150%, and the achievement of 125% of their personal goals.
3)These awards were granted as part of an annual grant of options to all employees. These stock options vest 25% on the first year anniversary of the grant date and the balance vests in twelve equal installments of 6.25%, quarterly over the following three years starting one quarter after the first year anniversary, generally subject, in each case, to the executive remaining either an employee (in the case of an incentive stock option) or an employee, director, or consultant of ImmunoGen as of each such date.

The restricted stock units will vest as to 40% on the one-year anniversary of the grant date and 60% on the 18-month anniversary of the grant date, subject to her continuous provision of service to us.
5)This award was granted in connection with Dr. Vasconcelles’ commencement of employment with us. The stock options vest 25% on the first-year anniversary of the grant date and the balance vests in twelve equal installments of 6.25%, quarterly over the following three years starting one quarter after the first year anniversary, subject to him remaining an employee, director, or consultant of ImmunoGen as of each such date.
