This excerpt taken from the PRK DEF 14A filed Mar 14, 2005.
The following line graph compares the monthly percentage change in the cumulative total shareholder return on the Park common shares with an index for the AMEX Stock Market (US Companies) comprised of all domestic common shares traded on AMEX and an index for Nasdaq Bank Stocks comprised of all depository institutions (SIC Code #6020-6029) and holding and other investment companies (SIC Code # 6710-6719) that are traded on The NASDAQ National Market and The NASDAQ SmallCap Market (Nasdaq Bank Stocks), for the five-year period from December 31, 1999 to December 31, 2004 (the last trading day for the 2004 fiscal year). The Nasdaq Bank Stocks index is comprised of stocks of banks and other depository institutions and their holding companies, a number of which Park considers to be within its peer group. The AMEX Financial Stocks index includes the stocks of banks, thrifts, finance companies and securities broker-dealers. Park believes that the Nasdaq Bank Stocks index is, therefore, the most appropriate industry index available to compare to the cumulative total return on the Park common shares. However, since the Park common shares are traded on AMEX, Park is using the AMEX Stock Market (US Companies) index as the broad equity market index for comparative purposes.
