The members of our audit committee are Mr. Roberts (Chairman), Mr. David, Mr. Miller and Mr. Misner. Mr. Misner joined our audit committee in March 2008. Each member of our audit committee meets the standards for financial knowledge for companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange. In addition, our board of directors has determined that Mr. Roberts and Mr. Misner are each an “audit committee financial expert” as defined by applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules, each of whom is independent under applicable rules governing independence of audit committee members. No member of our audit committee simultaneously serves on the audit committees of more than three public companies, except for Mr. Roberts, who serves on three audit committees in addition to ours. Our board of directors has determined that Mr. Roberts’ simultaneous service does not impair his ability to effectively serve on our audit committee. Our audit committee met 13 times during fiscal 2008.
