This excerpt taken from the TPTX DEF 14A filed May 17, 2005.
The Board of Directors
The Companys business is managed under the direction of its Board of Directors. The Board of Directors has designated as nominees for re-election six of the seven directors currently serving on the Board. Gerard J. Vlak, a current director, has declined to stand for re-election at the meeting. See Nominees for Director below for profiles of the nominees. After the election of the directors at the meeting, the Companys Board will have six directors.
The Board believes that re-electing these incumbent directors will promote stability and continuity and expects that such directors will continue making substantial contributions to the Company by virtue of their familiarity with, and insight into, the Companys affairs accumulated during their tenure.
All of the nominees have indicated a willingness to continue serving as directors, but if any of them should decline or be unable to act as a director, the proxy holders will vote for the election of another person or persons as the Board of Directors recommends. The Company has no reason to believe that any nominee will be unavailable.
