ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
The total number of directors on the Companys Board of Directors is nine. Pursuant to the Companys Certificate of Incorporation and By-Laws, the Board of Directors is divided into three classes each consisting, as nearly as may be possible, of one-third of the total number of directors, for terms of three years. At the 2007 Annual Meeting, three Class II Directors are to be elected. As proposed and recommended by the Governance and Nominating Committee, the Board of Directors has nominated John J. Hurley, Horace H. Sibley and Howard W. Speaks, Jr., each of whom is currently serving as a director of the Company, for election as Class II Directors to serve for three-year terms expiring at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 2010, and until their respective successors shall have been elected and qualified.
The Board of Directors recommends a vote FOR all of the nominees. Each of the nominees has indicated his willingness to serve if elected, and the Board of Directors has no reason to believe that any nominee will be unavailable. In the event that a vacancy arises among such nominees by death or any other reason prior to the 2007 Annual Meeting, the proxy may be voted for a substitute nominee or nominees designated by the Board of Directors.
Biographical information follows for each person nominated and each person whose term as a director will continue after the 2007 Annual Meeting.
