3/18/2005 Proxy Information

The Company offers a relocation program (the “Relocation Program”) for employees who relocate at the Company’s request and, in appropriate circumstances, to new employees who relocate in connection with their employment by the Company. The Company believes this program offers a v3/21/2006aluable incentive to attract and retain key employees. The Relocation Program provides a relocating employee who is eligible for benefits under the Relocation Program with financial assistance, both in selling his or her existing home and in purchasing a new residence.

In 2004, Brian Kelly, a Group Vice President of the Company, received benefits under the Relocation Program in connection with his relocation to the Company’s headquarters in Murray Hill, New Jersey. In 2004, Mr. Kelly sold his home to the relocation company pursuant to the Relocation Program for $966,850 (net of taxes) based on the appraised value of the home. In 2005, the relocation company sold the home for $835,000. In connection with such sale, the Company paid the relocation company the difference between the purchase price paid to Mr. Kelly by the relocation company and the amount of the final sale price and an additional amount of $154,506, representing related out-of-pocket expenses (e.g., taxes, maintenance, utilities, insurance, etc.) and associated fees.
