Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.
(a) The information required by this item is incorporated herein by reference to the relevant information disclosed under Item 5.03(a) below.
Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers..
(e) On May 3, 2007, our Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors determined and our Board of Directors approved discretionary cash bonus awards to be paid to the executive officers identified below for our fiscal year ended March 31, 2007. The awards were based upon the performance of our company and each officers individual performance. The awards, which will be paid in May, were as follows:
Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
(a) Our board of directors approved on May 3, 2007 amendments to (1) our articles of incorporation, as amended, that were required to be adopted under applicable Colorado law to reflect an automatic reduction in the number of our authorized shares of preferred stock resulting from the conversion in fiscal 2000 and 2001 of our 600 outstanding shares of 7% Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, and (2) our first amended and restated bylaws to clarify that the Company may issue and transfer shares of its common stock in uncertificated form as required by applicable Nasdaq Stock Market rules.
Our 7% Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, when designated under our articles of incorporation as then in effect, prohibited the reissuance of shares so designated following their conversion or redemption. In such circumstances, the Colorado Business Corporation Act, as amended, requires articles of incorporation to be amended to reflect the reduction in the stated number of shares authorized for issuance thereunder. Accordingly, the amendment approved by our board of directors reduced by 600 the total number of shares of preferred stock that we are authorized to issue from time to time under our articles of incorporation, as amended to date. The rights of our shareholders were not affected by the amendment because there are no shares of our preferred stock outstanding. Also, because there were numerous documents spanning several years comprising our articles of incorporation, as amended, on file with the Colorado Secretary of State, our board of directors approved resolutions authorizing our articles of incorporation, as amended, to be restated. Under applicable Colorado law, both the amendment and the restatement are effective without shareholder action. Our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation giving effect to the foregoing matters is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
With respect to the amendment to our first amended and restated bylaws, the Nasdaq Stock Market has adopted rules that are effective January 1, 2008 requiring our listed shares of common stock to be eligible for a direct registration program operated by a clearing agency registered under Section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. To be eligible, shares are required to be issuable in uncertificated form. The amendments adopted by our board of directors clarify that our shares of capital stock may be uncertificated. Except to the extent that shareholders may not receive certificates for their shares in the future, if the board of directors determines at a future date to issue uncertificated shares, the rights of our shareholders were not affected by the amendment. Our Amended and Restated Bylaws giving effect to the foregoing matters is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.2 and incorporated herein by reference.
The foregoing amendment summaries are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the documents filed as exhibits herewith.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
Our company announced on May 8, 2007, that our Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.125 per share of common stock, payable on June 29, 2007, to shareholders of record on June 4, 2007.
