Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act
Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires the Companys executive officers and directors, and persons who own more than ten percent of a registered class of the Companys equity securities, to file reports of securities ownership and changes in such ownership with the SEC. Executive officers, directors and greater than ten percent shareholders also are required by rules promulgated by the SEC to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.
Based solely upon a review of the copies of such forms furnished to the Company or written representations that no Forms 5 were required, the Company believes that all Section 16(a) filing requirements were met during fiscal year 2007, except that (i) one Form 4 was filed for William Campbell on October 26, 2007 with respect to the purchase by Mr. Campbells independent money manager of 3,600, 2,600 and 2,900 shares of the Companys common stock, in February 2006, September 2006 and January 2007, respectively, and the sale by Mr. Campbells independent money manager of 2,200, 1,400 and 2,600 shares of the Companys common stock in April 2006, June 2006 and July 2007, respectively, and (ii) one Form 4 was filed for Tony Fadell on November 15, 2007 with respect to the acquisition by Mr. Fadells spouse of 40,000 restricted stock units in December 2006 and 25,000 restricted stock units in October 2007.
