4/9/2003 Proxy Information

On April 19, 2002, we terminated our stock purchase assistance plan (the “SPAP”) wherein executives subject to stock ownership guidelines were reimbursed by us for interest on loans they secured from a third party to purchase shares of our Common Stock. Upon termination of the SPAP, plan participants sold their shares of Common Stock back to us in exchange for the greater of (i) the satisfaction of their current loan balance or (ii) the fair market value of their shares of Common Stock on April 19, 2002.

Messrs. Livonius, Krause, Peck and Bourke were participants in the SPAP. Messrs. Livonius and Peck sold 38,000 and 13,500 shares of Common Stock, respectively, back to us for the fair market value of the shares. Mr. Krause returned 32,034 shares of Common Stock to us in exchange for our satisfaction of his third party loan in the amount of $596,633, plus our payment of related taxes on the compensation effect of the transaction. Mr. Bourke returned 6,000 shares of Common Stock to us in exchange for our satisfaction of his third party loan in the amount of $80,000, plus our payment of related taxes on the compensation effect of the transaction. Also in connection with the termination of the SPAP, we forgave an interest-bearing loan in the amount of $81,000 that was previously made to Mr. Livonius pursuant to the SPAP. The loan was previously granted to Mr. Livonius to pay certain taxes incurred by him in connection with his exercise of options in order to meet his stock ownership guidelines.
