Herbert A. Allen, one of our Directors, is President and Chief Executive Officer and a Director of Allen & Company Incorporated ("ACI") and a principal shareowner of ACI's parent. ACI is an indirect equity holder of Allen & Company LLC ("ACL"). ACI transferred its investment and financial advisory services business to ACL in September 2002.

ACI has leased and subleased office space since 1977 in a building owned by one of our subsidiaries and located at 711 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York. In June 2005, ACI assigned the lease and sublease to ACL. In 2005, ACI and ACL collectively paid approximately $4.0 million in rent and related expenses and it is expected that ACL will pay a higher amount in 2006 as a result of a rent escalation clause included in the terms of the current lease. In the opinion of management, the terms of the lease, which was modified in 2002, are fair and reasonable and as favorable to the Company as those which could have been obtained from unrelated third parties at the time of the execution of the lease.

In 2005, the Company paid ACL approximately $122,000 for out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with financial advisory services provided between September 2000 through October 2005.

No payments were made to ACL in connection with the extension. In the opinion of management, the terms of the financial advisory services arrangement are fair and reasonable and as favorable to the Company as those which could be obtained from unrelated third parties at the time of the execution of the arrangement.
