Item 1.01 Entry into Material Definitive Agreement

 

On March 14, 2006, we entered into an employment agreement with Gregory T. Barnum, our  new Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer.

 

Mr. Barnum is employed for an initial two year term, subject to earlier termination under certain circumstances, at an annual base salary of $190,000 (subject to review and adjustment by our compensation committee). He is also entitled to receive annual cash bonuses of up to $60,000 at 100% achievement of financial and business milestones determined by us on an annual basis (subject to  adjustment by our compensation committee). He is also entitled to participate in our standard benefit plans.

 

In connection with his employment, we have awarded him 60,000 restricted shares of our common stock. These shares vest 50%, 25% and 25% on the second, third and fourth anniversaries of his employment, provided he has been in our continuous employment on each vesting date. The vesting will accelerate 100% upon a change of control, if we terminate his employment without cause or if he voluntarily terminates his employment for good reason. He will receive dividends on the awarded shares only if vested and be entitled to vote them whether or not vested.

 

Mr. Barnum’s employment term will automatically renew for additional two year terms unless we decide not to extend the term within 90 days prior to the commencement of a renewal term. We have agreed to pay one year salary as severance compensation to Mr. Barnum in the event of termination of his employment in certain situations, including if we do not renew his employment agreement or his employment ceases within one year of, or as a result of, a change of control. He has agreed to a one-year non-competition agreement with us after any termination of employment.

 

Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

 

On March 13, 2006, we received a Nasdaq Staff Deficiency letter regarding NASD Marketplace Rule 4350(c)(1) requiring a majority of independent directors. We received this letter in response to our March 9, 2006 notification letter to Nasdaq notifying them that Gregory T. Barnum, then one of our independent directors, resigned in connection with being named our new Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer on March 8, 2006.

 

NASD Marketplace Rule 4350(c)(1) states that a majority of the board of directors of a Nasdaq issuer must be comprised of independent directors (as defined by Marketplace Rule 4200(a)(15)). As a result of the resignation of Mr. Barnum, our board is comprised of three independent directors and three non-independent directors and the rule requires that we have a majority of independent directors. The rule also allows us to regain compliance by the earlier of our next annual shareholders meeting or March 8, 2007.

 

We are actively interviewing director candidates and we plan to add an additional independent director by May 4, 2006, the date of our next annual meeting.

 

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

 

On March 14, 2006, we issued 60,000 restricted shares of our common stock to Mr. Gregory T. Barnum in connection with our employment of him as our Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer. These shares were issued as part of his compensation under an employment agreement. We

issued these shares in reliance on Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933 in a transaction by an issuer not involving a public offering.
