ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
The Companys Restated Certificate of Incorporation provides for a Board of Directors of not fewer than three members nor more than nine members. The Board of Directors is currently fixed at seven members, and is divided into three classes, with members of each class serving for a three-year term. At each Annual Meeting of Stockholders, directors are chosen to succeed those in the class whose term expires at such Annual Meeting. Under the Companys Restated Certificate of Incorporation, holders of shares of the Companys outstanding Class B and Class D Common Stock are entitled to elect 20% (but not less than one) of the directors, currently two directors, one in each of Class II and Class III, and the holders of Class A and Class C Common Stock are entitled to elect the remaining directors, currently five directors, two in Class I, one in Class II, and two in Class III.
The persons listed below currently constitute the Companys Board of Directors. The term of the Class III directors, Mr. Alan B. Miller, Mr. Robert A. Meister and Dr. John F. Williams, Jr., expires at the 2005 Annual Meeting. Mr. Alan B. Miller and Mr. Robert A. Meister have been nominated to be elected by the holders of Class A and Class C Common Stock and Dr. John F. Williams, Jr. has been nominated to be elected by the holders of Class B and Class D Common Stock. The Company has no reason to believe that any of the nominees will be unavailable for election; however, if any nominee becomes unavailable for any reason, the shares represented by the Proxy will be voted for the person, if any, who is designated by the Board of Directors to replace the nominee. All nominees have consented to be named and have indicated their intent to serve if elected.
The following information is furnished with respect to each of the nominees for election as a director and each member of the Board of Directors whose term of office will continue after the meeting.
