Board Independence


Our Board has determined, by applying the categorical director independence standards contained in the Corporate Governance Guidelines, that each of our directors and director nominees, except Peter R. Dolan, has no direct or indirect material relationship with our company (other than as a director of our company) and is therefore independent. The independent directors are Robert E. Allen, Lewis B. Campbell, Vance D. Coffman, James M. Cornelius, Ellen V. Futter, Louis V. Gerstner, Jr., Laurie H. Glimcher, M.D., Leif Johansson, James D. Robinson III and Louis W. Sullivan, M.D. In addition, all members of the Audit Committee, the Compensation and Management Development Committee and the Committee on Directors and Corporate Governance satisfy the standards of independence applicable to members of such committees established under applicable law and the listing requirements of the New York Stock Exchange.
