New Benefits Under the Purchase Plan
Because awards to employees under the Purchase Plan are based on voluntary contributions in amounts determined by the participant, the benefits and amounts that will be received or allocated under the Purchase Plan are not determinable at this time. Therefore, we have not included a table reflecting such benefits or awards.
Based on their shareholdings as of June 30, 2007, (determined in accordance with Section 423 of the Code) all of our Named Executive Officers will be eligible to participate in our Purchase Plan, except Dana L. Evan who resigned from the Company on July 10, 2007, Stratton D. Sclavos who resigned from the Company on May 27, 2007 and Vernon L. Irvin who resigned from the Company on October 31, 2006. Only three of our Named Executive Officers participate in our 1998 Employee Stock Purchase Plan. None of our non-employee directors will be eligible to participate in the Purchase Plan.
