The Board of Directors

 

The Board of Directors is elected by and accountable to the stockholders and is responsible for the strategic direction, oversight and control of priceline.com.  Regular meetings of the Board of Directors are generally held at least five times per year and special meetings are scheduled when necessary.  Five members of the Company’s Board of Directors, representing a majority of directors nominated for re-election, are “independent,” as determined by priceline.com’s Board of Directors, based on the NASDAQ Stock Market’s listing rules.  The independent directors conduct at least two regularly scheduled executive sessions each year.   The Board of Directors held nine meetings in 2008.  All directors attended at least 75% of the meetings of the Board of Directors and the Board committees of which they were members during 2008.  The Board of Directors has an Audit Committee, a Compensation Committee and a Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and has adopted written charters for each of these committees.
