PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT COMPARISON OF STOCKHOLDER RETURNS
 
The following graph compares total stockholder return on the Company’s common stock since September 30, 2001 to two indices: the Standard & Poor’s 500 Stock Index (the “S&P 500”) and the Nasdaq Total Return Index for Communications Equipment Stocks, SIC 3660-3669 (the “Nasdaq-Industry”). The S&P 500 tracks the aggregate price performance of the equity securities of 500 U.S. companies selected by Standard & Poor’s Index Committee to include companies in leading industries and to reflect the U.S. stock market. The Nasdaq-Industry tracks the aggregate price performance of equity securities of communications equipment companies traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The total return for the Company’s stock and for each index assumes the reinvestment of dividends, and is based on the returns of the component companies weighted according to their capitalizations as of the end of each annual period. The Company began paying dividends on the Company stock on March 31, 2003. The Company’s common stock is traded on the Nasdaq Global Select Market and is a component of each of the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq-Industry.
