Executive officers and salaried directors of Pitney Bowes and its subsidiaries who satisfy the eligibility conditions are able to apply for options under the SAYE Plan. No person has received, or is expected to receive, five percent or more of the options available under the SAYE Plan. The number of options granted to all employees as a group under the 2005 three year SAYE Plan was 15,444 and the number under the 2005 five year plan was 18,984 as of January 31, 2006. The number of options that will be granted to all employees as a group under the SAYE Plan on or after May 8, 2006 is not determinable, as such grants are within the discretion of the Pitney Bowes board of directors or a committee appointed by it. However, as noted above, under current U.K. H M Revenue and Customs Rules, eligible employees may not invest more than £250 per month under the SAYE Plan.
