The following table presents fees for professional services rendered by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP for the audit of the Companys annual financial statements and internal control over financial reporting for fiscal 2004 and the annual financial statements for fiscal 2003, together with fees for audit-related services and tax services rendered by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP for fiscal 2004 and fiscal 2003.
All audit, audit related and tax services were pre-approved by the Audit Committee, which concluded that the provision of such services by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP was compatible with the maintenance of that firms independence in the conduct of its auditing functions. The Audit Committees Outside Auditor Independence Policy provides for pre-approval of specifically described audit, audit-related and tax services by the Committee on an annual basis, but individual engagements anticipated to exceed pre-established thresholds must be separately approved. The policy also requires specific approval by the Committee if total fees for audit-related and tax services would exceed total fees for audit services in any fiscal year. The policy authorizes the Committee to delegate to one or more of its members pre-approval authority with respect to permitted services.
