ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
 
In accordance with our Bylaws, our Board of Directors may be composed of no less than three and no more than 15 members. The Board currently consists of 12 members, divided into three classes, with each class serving a three-year term.
 
Upon the recommendation of the Board Governance Committee, the Board has nominated four Class II directors for re-election to our Board of Directors to hold office for a three-year term expiring at the 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. All Class III and Class I directors will continue in office, in accordance with their previous election, until the expiration of the terms of their classes at the 2010 or 2011 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
 
If you do not wish your shares to be voted for any particular nominee, you may withhold your vote for that particular nominee. If any nominee for Class II director becomes unavailable, the persons named in the accompanying Proxy Card may vote for any alternate designated by the incumbent Board of Directors, upon the recommendation of the Board Governance Committee, or the number of directors constituting the Board may be reduced.
 
Our Board of Directors continues to evaluate the optimal size of the Board and, if it determines it is in our company’s best interest, will fill any vacancies in accordance with our Bylaws and our Corporate Governance Guidelines. Although the Board has less than 15 members, you may not vote for a greater number of directors than the number nominated.
