There is no established public market for shares of Group common stock. Holders of restricted stock have the same right to receive dividends as other holders of Group common stock. Group has not paid any cash dividends on its common stock. Based on customary corporate valuation techniques, including an analysis of the discounted value of Group's potential earnings and cash flow, the valuation of comparable companies and current book value per share, the value of a share of Group common stock was estimated to be less than $1 as of January 1, 2003. The Company believes that the value is not materially different as of November 2004.

26


        As of April 1, 2005, the named executive officers held the following aggregate number of restricted shares of Group common stock: Mr. Drexler—463,278 vested shares (of which 55,793 shares are held by a corporation of which Mr. Drexler is a principal) and 476,507 unvested shares; Mr. Pfeifle—80,900 vested shares and 105,898 unvested shares; Ms. Al-Fayez—6,250 vested shares and 28,750 unvested shares; Ms. Gardner—0 vested shares and 50,000 unvested shares. Mr. Hyatt did not hold any restricted shares of Group common stock.
