(a)    Stockholder Rights Agreement

On August 8, 2000, the Company entered into a rights agreement that entitles each holder of the Company’s common stock to purchase one one-thousandth of a share of Series A Junior Participating Preferred Stock at a price of $500 per one one-thousandth of a share, subject to adjustment. Ten business days after a person or group of affiliated or associated persons acquires beneficial ownership of 15% or more of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock, other than as a result of repurchases of stock by the Company or certain inadvertent actions by institutional or certain other stockholders, and except pursuant to an offer for all outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock which the independent directors of the Company determine to be fair and in the best interests of the Company, each holder of a right to purchase one one-thousandth of a share of Series A Junior Participating Preferred Stock will thereafter have the right to receive, upon exercise of the right, shares of the Company common stock having a value equal to two times the exercise price of the right.

At any time until the tenth business day after a person or group of affiliated or associated persons acquires beneficial ownership of 15% or more of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock, the Company may redeem the rights in whole, but not in part, at a price of $0.001 per right.

This rights agreement may have certain anti-takeover effects. The rights will cause substantial dilution to a person or group that attempts to acquire the Company in a manner which causes the rights to become discount rights unless the offer is conditional upon a substantial number of rights being acquired.
