DIRECTOR COMPENSATION FISCAL 2008
Currently, each of our directors who is not a full time employee of CSS or its subsidiaries receives an annual fee of $25,000, as well as $1,000 for attendance at each Board and Board Committee meeting and for each consultation with management or another member of the Board or with a Board or Board Committee advisor or consultant pertaining to the activities of the Board or any Board Committee of which such director is a member, except that the fee for attendance at Board or Board Committee meetings or consultations held telephonically and of not more than one hour in duration is $500.00. In addition, the chairperson of the Human Resources Committee and the Nominating and Governance Committee each receive an additional annual fee of $5,000, and the chairperson of the Audit Committee receives an additional annual fee of $10,000.
Furthermore, each non-employee director is eligible to participate in the 2006 Stock Plan. The 2006 Stock Plan provides for the automatic grant to each non-employee director, on the last day on which our common stock is traded in each November through 2010, of nonqualified stock options to purchase 4,000 shares of CSS common stock at an exercise price per share equal to the closing price per share of CSS common stock on the date the stock options are granted. Accordingly, each non-employee director received an automatic grant of stock options to purchase 4,000 shares of CSS common stock on November 30, 2007 at an exercise price of $39.58 per share. Each option granted under the 2006 Stock Plan expires five years after the date the option was granted. Twenty-five percent of the shares underlying each stock option grant become exercisable on each of the first four anniversaries of the date of grant. These installments are cumulative and exercisable during the remainder of the term of the option.
