Important Notice Regarding Delivery of Stockholder Documents

In accordance with a notice sent to certain street name stockholders of the Company’s voting stock who share a single address, only one copy of this Proxy Statement and the Annual Report is being sent to that address unless we received contrary instructions from any stockholder at that address. This practice, known as “householding,” is designed to reduce the Company’s printing and postage costs. However, if any stockholder residing at such an address wishes to receive a separate copy of this Proxy Statement or the Annual Report, he, she or it may contact the Company at 3305 Flamingo Drive, Vero Beach, Florida 32963, (772) 231-1400, and the Company will deliver those documents to such stockholder promptly upon receiving the request. Any such stockholder may also contact the Company at the contact information provided above if he, she or it would like to receive separate proxy statements and annual reports in the future. If you are receiving multiple copies of the Annual Report and Proxy Statement, you may also request householding in the future by contacting the Company’s corporate secretary.

PROPOSAL NO. 1:

ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

        The Company's Bylaws provide for a Board of Directors of six members, which number may be altered by the affirmative vote of a majority of the entire Board of Directors to not more than 15, and not less than the minimum number then permitted by the Maryland General Corporation Law. In September 2005, the Board of Directors authorized an increase in its size to eight members and elected two additional directors effective in November 2005. The Board of Directors may fill a vacancy which results from the death, resignation or removal of a director or from an increase in the number of directors. Any director elected by the Board of Directors to fill a vacancy serves until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until his or her successor is duly elected and qualified. The Board of Directors has determined that five of the eight current directors are and, assuming the election of all nominees, will continue to be "independent" within the meaning of applicable rules of the SEC and the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE").

        Pursuant to the Charter, the members of the Board of Directors are divided into three classes which have staggered terms of office, so that the term of office of directors of only one class expires at each annual meeting of stockholders and each director of that class is elected for a three-year term and until his or her successor is elected and duly qualified or until his or her earlier death, resignation or removal. In September 2005, Jason Kaplan was elected as a Class I director and agreed to resign after one-year and Peter R. Norden was elected as a Class II director for a two-year term, each directorship commencing on November 3, 2005. The following table lists the name, class designation and age for each director:

Name

  Class
  Age
Kevin L. Bespolka*   I   43
Jason Kaplan*   I   31
W. Christopher Mortenson*   I   59
Robert E. Cauley   II   47
Peter R. Norden   II   51
Buford H. Ortale*   II   44
Maureen A. Hendricks*   III   54
Jeffrey J. Zimmer   III   48

*
The asterisk indicates that the director is independent.

        The term of office of each of the two current Class III directors (Maureen A. Hendricks and Jeffrey J. Zimmer) expires at the Meeting. The term of office of the Class I directors will expire at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2007 and the term of office of the Class II directors will expire at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2008. However, because Messrs. Norden and Kaplan were elected by the Board of Directors to fill vacancies, they must also stand for re-election at the Meeting.

        The Board of Directors has nominated Mr. Kaplan to be re-elected as a Class I director for a term expiring at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2007, Mr. Norden to be elected as a Class II director for a term expiring at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2008, and Ms. Hendricks and Mr. Zimmer to stand for re-election as Class III directors, each for a three-year term expiring at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2009. In the event that such nominees are unable to serve or for good cause will not serve, the proxies will be voted at the Meeting for such other person or persons as the Board of Directors may recommend.
