How Do I Vote?
If you are a beneficial owner, you have the right to instruct your broker, financial institution or other holder of record on how to vote your shares of our common stock by using the voting instruction card you received from them or by following their particular telephone and/or Internet voting instructions.
If you are a holder of record, you may vote the proxy card you received by mail, by telephone or via the Internet, as described below:
Mail. Please promptly complete and return your proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided.
Telephone. Please call the toll-free telephone number listed on your proxy card. Telephone voting procedures have been established to verify your identity, to allow you to provide proxy voting instructions and to confirm that your instructions were accurately recorded. Please have your proxy card available when you call.
Internet. Please visit the Internet web site address listed on your proxy card. As with telephone voting, Internet voting procedures have been established to verify your identity and to confirm your voting instructions. Please have your proxy card available when you visit the Internet web site address.
Telephone and Internet voting will be available to holders of record 24 hours each day until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on April 2, 2008. If you use the toll-free telephone number or the Internet to provide your proxy voting instructions, you do not need to mail in your proxy card.

Voting In Person at the Annual Meeting.
