        Based solely on our review of copies of reports filed by the directors, executive officers and beneficial owners of more than 10% of our common stock required to file such reports pursuant to Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, we believe that all of our directors and executive officers complied with the reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 except that, due to an administrative oversight on the part of Staples, a portion of an initial director compensation equity grant for Ms. Smith was reported shortly after the two day deadline. In addition, Staples failed to file a Form 5 to record changes from direct to indirect holdings for Mr. Sargent in fiscal year 2007.
