Executive Officers

       Our executive officers are elected by, and serve at the discretion of, our board of directors. There are no family relationships among our directors and officers.

Board of Directors

       Currently, we have authorized an eleven member board of directors. All our directors hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders or until their successors are duly qualified. Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation to be effective upon completion of this offering provides that, as of the first annual meeting of stockholders, our board of directors will be divided into three classes, each with staggered three-year terms. As a result, only one class of directors will be elected at each annual meeting of our stockholders, with the other classes continuing for the remainder of their respective three-year terms.

       Messrs. Parker, Johnson and Ledford have been designated as Class I directors, and their terms expire at the 2005 annual meeting of stockholders; Messrs. Aplin, Alafi, Dacey and Lele have been designated as Class II directors, and their terms expire at the 2006 annual meeting of stockholders; and Messrs. Middleton, Kelley, Mills and Hogg have been designated as Class III directors, and their terms expire at the 2007 annual meeting of stockholders.

Board Committees

       Our board of directors has an audit committee, a compensation committee, a finance committee and a nominating and corporate governance committee.

       The audit committee was established in 1998 and currently consists of Messrs. Aplin, Ledford and Mills. Mr. Aplin serves as the chair of the audit committee. Mr. Aplin will be our audit committee financial expert under SEC rules and regulations. We believe that the composition of our audit committee meets the requirements for independence under current rules and regulations of the SEC and the Nasdaq National Market. We intend to comply with future requirements to the extent they become applicable to us.

       The audit committee assists our board of directors in its oversight of:

  •  the integrity of our financial statements;
 
  •  our accounting and financial reporting process, including our internal controls;
 
  •  our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements;
 
  •  the independent auditors’ qualifications and independence; and
 
  •  the performance of our internal audit function and independent auditors.
