Compuware Corporation (CPWR)

7/18/2006 Proxy Information

Mr. Prowse is a private investor. He began his employment with Compuserve Corporation in 1984 and served as Executive Vice President from February 1998 through March 1999. From January 1992 through January 1998, he served as Senior Vice President.

In fiscal 2006, we paid a total of approximately $1,225,000 in ticket, advertising and suite license fees to certain major and minor league sports venues, including arenas and teams located in Raleigh, North Carolina; Plymouth, Michigan and Ft. Myers, Florida. These arenas and teams are owned, managed or controlled by entities owned and controlled by interests of Peter Karmanos, Jr., our Chairman of the Board and CEO, namely Compuware Sports Corporation ("CSC") and Gale Force Sports & Entertainment, LLC ("GFSE"). This amount includes the approximately $840,000 we paid to CSC pursuant to a Promotion Agreement dated September 8, 1992, which agreement requires CSC to undertake certain promotional activities on behalf of the Company. The Promotion Agreement automatically renews for successive one-year terms, unless terminated by either party with 60 days notice. The total amount also includes the approximately $250,000 we paid to GFSE pursuant to an Advertising Agreement, dated December 1, 1996, which agreement includes the right to name the Plymouth, Michigan arena "Compuware Arena" and the placement of fixed advertising in and about the arena. The Advertising Agreement will terminate on November 30, 2016.

Business needs occasionally require various employees of Compuware to travel on private aircraft. We are a party to an exchange agreement with Karthe Corporation, a company that is 50 percent owned by Peter Karmanos, Jr. Under the exchange agreement, we allow Karthe to use Compuware's aircraft and, in exchange, Karthe allows Compuware to use Karthe's aircraft. During fiscal 2006, Karthe used Compuware's aircraft for approximately 46 hours, and Compuware used Karthe's aircraft for approximately 75 hours. Compensation for the use of the aircraft is paid in hours, and no cash or other compensation is exchanged by the parties under the agreement unless the agreement is terminated. As of March 31, 2006, Karthe owed Compuware approximately 49 hours under the agreement. These hours are valued at approximately $82,000. We believe that such services were provided by us and to us under this arrangement on terms that were no less favorable than could have been obtained from unaffiliated third parties.

As a benefit to various employees of the Company, we occasionally invite them to vacation in condominium units that were acquired from an unaffiliated third party by a trust in which Mr. Karmanos is the trustee and beneficiary. These units were acquired by the trust as an accommodation to the Company in order to preserve this valuable incentive for the Company's employees. We reimbursed Mr. Karmanos approximately $77,000 in miscellaneous expenses related to employees' use of the condominium units in fiscal 2006. We believe that the expenses paid by us are at or below market rates and are no less favorable than we could have obtained from unaffiliated third parties.
