ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

As set by the Board of Directors pursuant to the Bylaws of the Company, the authorized number of directors of the Company is currently set at six.

Timothy Draper resigned as a director of the Company in November 2004, leaving one vacancy on the Board. Subsequent to Mr. Draper’s resignation, the Board amended the Company’s Bylaws to set the authorized number of directors at seven and appointed Thomas Riordan and Patrick Verderico as directors.

Wei-Ti Liu will not seek re-election as a director and his term as a director will automatically expire at the Annual Meeting. The Board has amended the Company’s Bylaws to set the authorized number of directors at six.

The Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors has recommended, and the Board of Directors has nominated, the six nominees listed below for election as directors at the Annual Meeting, each to serve until the 2006 annual meeting of stockholders, until each director’s successor is elected or appointed and qualified, or until the earlier resignation or removal of the director. All of the nominees are currently directors of the Company, and each of the nominees named below has consented, if elected as a director of the Company, to serve until his term expires. In the event that any nominee of the Company is unable or declines to serve as a director at the time of the Annual Meeting, the proxies will be voted for any nominee who shall be designated by the present Board of Directors to fill the vacancy. In the event that additional persons are nominated for election as directors, the proxy holders intend to vote all proxies received by them in such a manner as will assure the election of as many of the nominees listed below as possible, and, in such event, the specific nominees to be voted for will be determined by the proxy holders.
