3/16/2006 Proxy Information

In 2002 we entered into life insurance agreements with six employees, including two of the named executive officers, Messrs. Harnett and Skoch, and purchased life insurance policies pursuant to those agreements. These agreements, and the policies, which are owned by the employees, remain outstanding, and the portions of the premiums we paid are treated as loans to the employees, secured by the insurance policies, for financial purposes. The agreements require the employees to maintain the policiesŐ cash surrender values in amounts at least equal to the outstanding loan balances. The outstanding balances, which have not changed since the inception of the program, are $260,004 for Mr. Harnett and $39,951 for Mr. Skoch. The employees pay a market rate of interest based on the applicable federal rate. The rate is currently 5.2%.
