STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS FOR THE NEXT ANNUAL MEETING
In order for a proposal of one of our stockholders to be considered for inclusion in our proxy statement and proxy card for our 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the proposal must comply with SEC Rule 14a-8 and any other applicable rules and must be submitted to our secretary at our executive offices located at 43 Manning Road, Billerica, Massachusetts 01821 at least 120 days prior to the anniversary date of the mailing of this proxy statement. This proxy statement was mailed on or about March 30, 2007, so the date by which proposals must be received under Rule 14a-8 will be November 29, 2008.
Article II, Section 5 of our by-laws requires that a stockholder who wishes to bring an item of business before the annual meeting of stockholders, but does not wish to have a proposal considered for inclusion in our proxy statement, must provide written notice of such item of business to our secretary at our executive offices not less than 90 days before the date of such meeting. Therefore, the deadline for submission of notice will be October 9, 2007.
