Restricted Stock Awards
The Companys 2002 Plan also permits the granting of restricted shares of our common stock. Beginning in fiscal 2008 the Company incorporated the use of restricted shares into its overall compensation program. Shares of
restricted stock were granted to the Companys named executive officers in fiscal 2008 as set forth in the Grant of Plan Based Awards Table above and to the Companys non-employee directors as set forth in the Director Compensation Table on page 10 of this proxy statement. Generally, restricted shares have three (3) year cliff vesting features. See Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change-in-Control beginning on page 42 of this proxy statement for a description of the effects of employment termination or a change in control on restricted stock awards.
