Stock Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management
The following table sets forth, as of July 29, 2011, certain information with respect to shares beneficially owned by (i) each person who is known by the Company to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent 5% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock, (ii) each of the Company’s directors and the executive officers named in the Summary Compensation Table and (iii) all current directors and executive officers as a group. Beneficial ownership has been determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act. Under this rule, certain shares may be deemed to be beneficially owned by more than one person (if, for example, persons share the power to vote or the power to dispose of the shares). In addition, shares are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if the person has the right to acquire shares (for example, upon exercise of an option or warrant) within sixty (60) days of the date as of which the information is provided; in computing the percentage ownership of any person, the amount of shares is deemed to include the amount of shares beneficially owned by such person (and only such person) by reason of such acquisition rights. As a result, the percentage of outstanding shares of any person as shown in the following table does not necessarily reflect the person’s actual voting power at any particular date. The Company has relied upon the contents of statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act. The Company has updated, as appropriate, reported share ownership figures of beneficial owners to reflect a 1-for-20 reverse stock split of the Company’s Common Stock effected on February 24, 2010.
To the Company’s knowledge, except as indicated in the footnotes to this table and pursuant to applicable community property laws, the persons named in the table have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of Common Stock as beneficially owned by them.
Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners
Note: Percentage of ownership is based on 2,856,112 shares of Common Stock outstanding on July 19, 2011.
Security Ownership of Management
Note: The number of shares of Common Stock deemed outstanding includes shares issuable pursuant to stock options that may be exercised within 60 days after July 29, 2011. Percentage of ownership is based on 2,856,112 shares of Common Stock outstanding on July 19, 2011, plus shares of Common Stock subject to options or exercisable within 60 days of July 29, 2011, and held by each listed person. Shares of Common Stock subject to options exercisable within 60 days of July 29, 2011, are deemed outstanding for purposes of computing the percentage ownership of the person holding such options but are not deemed outstanding for computing the percentage ownership of any other person. The Company has updated, as appropriate, reported share ownership figures of management to reflect a 1-for-20 reverse stock split of the Company’s Common Stock effected on February 24, 2010.
Securities Authorized for Issuance Under Equity Compensation Plans
The following table sets forth information as of March 31, 2011 with respect to shares of common stock that may be issued under our existing equity compensation plans.
Transactions with Related Persons
Other than the compensation arrangements with directors and executive officers and except as set forth below, there have been no transactions since April 1, 2010 (and there are no currently proposed transactions) in which:
On May 6, 2010, Brenda Zawatski, one of our former directors, entered into an employment relationship with CA, Inc. (“CA”) as a Senior Vice President working primarily on marketing. During fiscal 2011, CA purchased approximately $0.5 million in software licenses, annual maintenance and related technical services from the Company. Ms. Zawatski had no direct involvement in these transactions as she was not employed by CA at the time. Since May 6, 2010, Ms. Zawatski has not participated in any Board discussions about any ongoing or potential transactions with CA.
The Company’s certificate of incorporation limits the liability of the Company’s directors for monetary damages arising from a breach of their fiduciary duty as directors, except to the extent otherwise required by the Delaware General Corporation Law. Such limitation of liability does not affect the availability of equitable remedies such as injunctive relief or rescission.
The Company’s bylaws provide that the Company shall indemnify its directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law, including in circumstances in which indemnification is otherwise discretionary under Delaware law. The Company has entered into indemnification agreements with its executive officers and directors containing provisions that may require the Company, among other things, to indemnify such officers and directors against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors or officers and to advance their expenses incurred as a result of any proceeding against them as to which they could be indemnified. Pursuant to these agreements, the Company has advanced or indemnified certain directors and officers for fees and expenses incurred by them in connection with the ongoing litigation with Trilogy, as previously reported in our Original Annual Report.
Review, Approval or Ratification of Transaction with Related Persons
Our board of directors adopted certain written policies and procedures with respect to related person transactions on June 28, 2009. These policies and procedures require that certain transactions, subject to specified exceptions and other than one that involves compensation, between us and any of our directors, executive officers or beneficial holders of more than 5% of our capital stock, or any immediate family member of, or person sharing the household with, any of these individuals, be consummated only if (i) approved or ratified by our Audit Committee and only if the terms of the transaction are comparable to those that could be obtained in arm’s-length dealings with an unrelated third party or (ii) approved by the disinterested members of our board of directors. Our policies and procedures with respect to related person transactions also apply to certain charitable contributions by us or our executive officers and to the hiring of any members of the immediate family of any of our directors or executive officers as our permanent full-time employees. Our Compensation Committee is also required to approve any transaction that involves compensation to our directors and executive officers.
Independence of the Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is currently composed of five members. Messrs. Sems, Gullard, Casey, Brodsky and Howe qualify as independent directors in accordance with the published listing requirements of The Nasdaq Stock Market. The directors hold office until their successors have been elected and qualified or their earlier death, resignation or removal.
The Audit Committee of our Board of Directors selected Armanino McKenna LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2011.
The following table sets forth the aggregate fees we paid to Armanino McKenna LLP, our independent registered public accounting firm, for professional services provided during our fiscal years ended March 31, 2010 and March 31, 2011.
The Audit Committee’s policy is to pre-approve all audit and permissible non-audit services rendered by Armanino McKenna LLP, our independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee can pre-approve specified services in defined categories of audit services, audit-related services and tax services up to specified amounts, as part of the Audit Committee’s approval of the scope of the engagement of Armanino McKenna LLP or on an individual case-by-case basis before Armanino McKenna LLP is engaged to provide a service. All audit, audit-related and tax services were pre-approved by the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee has determined that, subject to reasonable limits, the rendering of the services other than audit services by Armanino McKenna LLP is compatible with maintaining the principal accountant’s independence.
