Nonqualified Deferred Compensation for Fiscal Year 2009

Under our Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan, certain executives (including Named Executive Officers) may defer compensation earned as salary, commissions or awards under the Executive Incentive Plan. Deferral elections are made by eligible executives each year during an “open enrollment” period for amounts to be earned in the following year. An executive may defer all or a portion of his or her annual salary, commissions and Executive Incentive Plan awards under this plan. The Company does not make any contribution for executives under the Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan. In fiscal 2009, we adopted our Equity Incentive Deferral Plan, which permits certain executive officers to defer up to 50 percent of their Executive Incentive Plan award. The Equity Incentive Deferral Plan is available for deferral of awards paid during or after fiscal 2010.

The following table presents information regarding non-qualified deferred compensation activity for each listed officer during the fiscal year ended January 31, 2009.
