·  On May 21, 2007, Mr. Brouillard will receive options to purchase 15,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a price equal to the closing price of the common stock on the date of grant. The options will vest in three equal annual installments beginning one year from the date of grant. In addition, Mr. Brouillard will receive 1,650 deferred stock units, which are fully vested upon grant but are not available for distribution until his service as a director ends.

Wade, Executive Vice President, Business Development. Mr. Wade’s restricted stock award, which will have a grant date of May 21, 2007, and will vest on the third anniversary of the grant date, entitles him to vote the shares and receive dividends in the same amount and at the same time as may be declared on the Company’s common stock during the vesting period.
