Table of Contents

In February 2005, we granted John Hansen, our chairman of the board of directors, two stock options to purchase an aggregate of 75,000 shares of our common stock pursuant to our 2004 Equity Incentive Award Plan. Both options have an exercise price of $14.68 and have ten-year terms. One option to purchase 30,000 shares of common stock was immediately vested as to one-third of the shares covered by the option, with the balance to vest in equal installments on the first and second anniversaries of the grant date. The other option covers 45,000 shares of common stock and will vest in three equal annual installments commencing on the first anniversary of the grant date.

We will compensate new non-employee directors for their service on our board of directors with an initial grant of an option to purchase 30,000 shares of our common stock under our 2004 Equity Incentive Award Plan, which will vest in three equal annual installments commencing on the first anniversary of the date of grant. We intend to compensate non-employee directors for their service on our board of directors with an annual grant of an option to purchase 10,000 shares of our common stock under our 2004 Equity Incentive Award Plan, which will vest in full on the first anniversary of the date of grant.

Options granted to non-employee directors will have an exercise price equal to the fair market value of our common stock on the date of grant. We also reimburse our non-employee directors for their reasonable expenses incurred in attending board meetings. Directors who are also employees of our company do not receive any additional compensation for board service.

Compliance With Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act

The assumed 5% and 10% rates of stock price appreciation are provided in accordance with rules of the SEC and do not represent our estimate or projection of the future stock price.
(3) These options were cancelled on November 21, 2005 in connection with Mr. Badovinus’ resignation as Chief Executive Officer.

Aggregated Option Exercises in Fiscal Year 2005 and Option Values at December 31, 2005

The following table sets forth the number of shares of common stock subject to exercisable and unexercisable stock options held as of December 31, 2005 by each of the named executive officers. The value realized is the amount the shares were sold for as of that date less the per share exercise price, and the value of unexercised in-the-money options at December 31, 2005 is calculated based on $5.30, the fair market value of the underlying shares of our common stock on December 30, 2005 (the last trading day of fiscal year 2005), less the per share exercise price, multiplied by the number of shares issued upon exercise of the options.

Employee Benefit Plans

2004 Equity Incentive Award Plan

In March 2004, our board of directors adopted our 2004 Equity Incentive Award Plan and it was approved by our stockholders in April 2004. The plan allows us to issue awards of incentive or nonqualified stock options, restricted stock or stock appreciation rights. Our employees, consultants and directors are eligible to receive awards under the plan, but only employees may receive incentive stock options. We initially reserved a total of 500,000 shares of our common stock for issuance under the plan. The reserve automatically increases on each December 31 during the term of the plan by an amount equal to the lesser of (1) 200,000 shares or (2) a lesser amount determined by the board of directors. As of April 11, 2006, awards covering an aggregate of 715,832 shares were outstanding under the 2004 Plan, and 184,168 shares (plus any shares that might in the future be returned to the 2004 Plan as a result of terminations or expirations of awards) remained available for future grants. The plan is administered by our board of directors, or a committee of our board appointed by the board to administer the plan. The board of directors or the committee administering the plan selects the participants who will receive awards and determines the terms and conditions of such awards. Restricted stock is generally subject to forfeiture upon termination of the employee or consultant’s relationship with us for any reason, with exceptions for certain terminations for cause.

In the event of certain corporate transactions, such as a merger or consolidation or sale of all or substantially all of the assets of our company, the plan provides that each outstanding award may, and in some cases will, be assumed or replaced with a comparable award by our successor company or its parent. If the successor company or its parent does not assume or replace the awards, outstanding options will become 100% vested and exercisable immediately before the corporate transaction. To the extent that options accelerate due to a corporate transaction, the restrictions on restricted stock awards will also lapse. In the event of such a corporate transaction or a change in capitalization, the board of directors or the committee administering the plan also has the discretion to make adjustments, where appropriate, with respect to the number and types of shares that may be issued under the plan, the terms and conditions of outstanding awards and the grant or exercise price per share for outstanding awards in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of the benefits or potential benefits we intend to provide under the plan.

Table of Contents

1999 Stock Plan

In January 1999, we adopted our 1999 Stock Plan, which was approved by our stockholders in January 1999. The plan allows us to issue incentive and nonstatutory stock options and make restricted stock awards. Our employees, outside directors and consultants are eligible to receive awards under the plan, but only employees may receive incentive stock options. We reserved a total of 3,100,000 shares of our common stock for issuance under the plan. As of April 11, 2006, there were 171,751 shares of our common stock available for issuance under the plan. We do not intend to make any further issuances under the plan. The plan is administered by our board of directors, or a committee of our board appointed by the board to administer the plan. The board of directors or the committee administering the plan selects the participants who will receive awards and determines the terms and conditions of such awards. Our incentive and nonstatutory stock options and our restricted stock are generally subject to special forfeiture conditions, rights of repurchase, rights of first refusal and other transfer restrictions as the board of directors may determine.

In the event of certain corporate transactions, such as a merger or consolidation, the plan provides for: (1) the continuation of the outstanding options by us if we are the surviving corporation; (2) the assumption of the 1999 Stock Plan and the outstanding options by the surviving corporation or its parent; (3) the substitution by the surviving corporation or its parent of options with substantially the same terms; or (4) the cancellation of the outstanding options without payment of any consideration. In the event of a change in control, the plan provides that: (a) each outstanding restricted stock award will vest if the repurchase right is not assigned to the entity that employs the award holder immediately after the change in control or its parent or subsidiary; and (b) each outstanding option will become exercisable in full if such options do not remain outstanding, are not assumed by the surviving corporation or its parent and the surviving corporation or its parent does not substitute options with substantially the same terms for such options. A change in control means: (i) the consummation of our merger or consolidation with or into another entity or any other corporate reorganization, if persons who were not our stockholders immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or other reorganization own immediately after such merger, consolidation or other reorganization 50% or more of the voting power of the outstanding securities of each of (A) the continuing or surviving entity and (B) any direct or indirect parent corporation of such continuing or surviving entity; or (ii) the sale, transfer or other disposition of all or substantially all of our assets.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

In March 2004, our board of directors adopted our Employee Stock Purchase Plan and it was approved by our stockholders in April 2004. The plan is designed to allow our eligible employees to purchase shares of common stock, at semi-annual intervals, with their accumulated payroll deductions.

We initially reserved a total of 300,000 shares of our common stock for issuance under the plan. The reserve automatically increases on each December 31 during the term of the plan by an amount equal to the lesser of (1) 100,000 shares or (2) a lesser amount determined by the board of directors. As of April 11, 2006, there were 243,509 shares of common stock available for issuance under the plan.

The plan generally will have a series of successive consecutive, overlapping offering periods. Each offering period will be comprised of two 6-month purchase periods.

Individuals whose customary employment is for more than 20 hours per week and who have been continuously employed by us for at least six months are eligible to participate in the plan. Participants may contribute up to 15% of their cash earnings through payroll deductions, and the accumulated deductions will be applied to the purchase of shares on each semi-annual purchase date. The purchase price per share will be equal to 85.0% of the fair market value per share on the participant’s entry date into the offering period or, if lower, 85.0% of the fair market value per share on the semi-annual purchase date.

If the fair market value per share of our common stock on any purchase date is less than the fair market value per share on the start date of the 12-month offering period, then that offering period will automatically terminate, and a new 12-month offering period will begin on the next business day. All participants in the terminated offering will be transferred to the new offering period.

 

12


Table of Contents

In the event of a proposed sale of all or substantially all of our assets, or our merger with or into another company, the outstanding rights under the plan will be assumed or an equivalent right substituted by the successor company or its parent. If the successor company or its parent refuses to assume the outstanding rights or substitute an equivalent right, then all outstanding purchase rights will automatically be exercised prior to the effective date of the transaction. The purchase price will be equal to 85.0% of the market value per share on the participant’s entry date into the offering period in which an acquisition occurs or, if lower, 85.0% of the fair market value per share on the date the purchase rights are exercised.

The plan will terminate no later than the tenth anniversary of the plan’s initial adoption by the board of directors.

401(k) Plan

Effective in 2000, we adopted the Design Within Reach 401(k) plan covering our employees. The 401(k) plan is intended to qualify under Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, so that the contributions to the 401(k) plan by employees, and the investment earnings thereon, are not taxable to employees until withdrawn from the 401(k) plan, and so that contributions by us, if any, will be deductible by us for federal income tax purposes when made. Under the 401(k) plan, employees may elect to reduce their current compensation by up to the statutorily prescribed annual limit and to have the amount of such reduction contributed to the 401(k) plan. The 401(k) plan permits, but does not require additional matching contributions to the 401(k) plan by us on behalf of all participants in the 401(k) plan. During fiscal year 2005, we made no contributions to the 401(k) plan.

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions

JH Partners, LLC Transactions. Since November 2000, we have leased space on a month-to-month basis for our San Francisco studio facility from JH Partners, LLC, a San Francisco-based private equity firm. John Hansen, Chairman of the Board of Directors, is President of JH Partners, LLC. We paid $100,800 in aggregate rental payments under this lease for each of fiscal years 2002 and 2003 and 2004.

Mr. Badovinus, our former chief executive officer, serves as a senior operating partner for JH Partners, LLC. As a senior operating partner, Mr. Badovinus participates in deal origination, the due diligence process and as a director of some of JH Partners portfolio companies.

We believe that we have executed all of the transactions set forth above on terms no less favorable to us than terms we could have obtained from unaffiliated third parties.

Item 14. Principal Accounting Fees and Services

The fees billed by our independent auditors, Grant Thornton LLP, for 2005 and 2004 for professional services are as follows:

Audit Fees

Fees for audit services totaled approximately $1,369,000 in 2005 and $449,000 in 2004 and include fees for the audit of our annual financial statements for 2005 and 2004, the review of our interim period financial statements for 2005 and 2004 included in our Form 10-Qs and our annual reports on Form 10-K, review of our Form 10-Qs, services related to the secondary offering conducted in March 2005 and related services that are normally provided in connection with regulatory filings or engagements.

Audit-Related Fees

Fees for audit-related services totaled approximately $20,000 in 2005 and $11,000 in 2004 for services related to the audit of our 401(k) plan.

Table of Contents

Tax Fees

Fees for tax compliance, tax advice and tax planning services totaled approximately $115,000 in 2005 and $20,000 in 2004.

All Other Fees

We did not engage Grant Thornton LLP to perform services other than those described above in 2005 and 2004.

Audit Committee Policy Regarding Pre-Approval of Audit and Permissible Non-Audit Services of Our Independent Auditors

Our audit committee has established a policy that generally requires that all audit and permissible non-audit services provided by our independent auditors will be pre-approved by the audit committee. These services may include audit services, audit-related services, tax services and other services. The audit committee considers whether the provision of each non-audit service is compatible with maintaining the independence of our auditors. Pre-approval is detailed as to the particular service or category of services and is generally subject to a specific budget. Our independent auditors and management are required to periodically report to the audit committee regarding the extent of services provided by the independent auditors in accordance with this pre-approval, and the fees for the services performed to date.
