ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
The Restated Articles of Incorporation of the Company (the Charter) provide that the Board of Directors of the Company (the Board of Directors) shall consist of not less than three nor more than fifteen directors, as determined from time to time by resolution of the Board of Directors. The number of directors is currently fixed at nine. The Board of Directors is divided into three approximately equal classes. The terms of such classes are staggered so that only one class is elected at the annual meeting of stockholders each year for a three-year term. The term of the current Class I directors (Messrs. Harl, Leidel, and Taylor) will expire at the Annual Meeting. The terms of the current Class II directors (Messrs. Mitchell and Williams) and the current Class III directors (Messrs. Curran and Isaacs) will expire at the annual meetings of stockholders to be held in 2007 and 2008, respectively.
In accordance with the recommendation of the Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee, the Board of Directors has nominated Robert R. Harl, Peter A. Leidel and James B. Taylor, Jr. for election as Class I directors. Messrs. Harl, Leidel and Taylor, who currently serve as Class I directors and whose terms expire at the Annual Meeting, are each standing for re-election as a Class I director for a term expiring at the annual meeting of stockholders in 2009 and until his successor is duly elected and qualifies, or until the earlier of his death, retirement, or resignation. Mr. Harl was elected to the Board of Directors in January 2006, and at that time was recommended to the Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee by the Companys President and Chief Executive Officer. The persons named as proxies in the accompanying proxy, who have been designated by the Board of Directors, intend to vote, unless otherwise instructed in such proxy, for the election of Messrs. Harl, Leidel and Taylor. Should any nominee named herein become unable for any reason to stand for election as a director of the Company, it is intended that the persons named in such proxy will vote for the election of such other person or persons as the Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee may recommend and the Board of Directors may propose to replace such nominee. The Company knows of no reason why any of the nominees will be unavailable or unable to serve.
The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares present in person or by proxy at the Annual Meeting and entitled to vote is required for the election of directors. The Board of Directors recommends a vote FOR each of the following nominees for directors.
