Appointment of New Directors
On December 29, 2010, Richard Bloom, Brian Klemsz, Peter Kloepfer and Loren Snyder were selected for our Board of Directors.  These appointments were made in connection with our combination with NexCore Group LP pursuant to an Interest Purchase Agreement dated as of September 29, 2010, by and among NexCore, its partners and the Company (the “Acquisition”).
In connection with the Acquisition, the former partners of NexCore acquired control of the Company.  Under the terms of a Shareholder’s Agreement entered into in connection with the Acquisition, Gregory C. Venn and Peter Kloepfer, as trustees of a voting trust created for the benefit of the former NexCore partners, have the right to nominate three of our five directors; BOCO Investments LLC (“BOCO”) and GDBA Investments, LLLP (“GDBA”) together have the right to nominate one director; and the four directors so appointed have the right to nominate the remaining director.  The Acquisition and the Shareholders’ Agreement were previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on October 5, 2010.
Messrs. Kloepfer, Snyder and Venn were nominated by the trustees.  Brian Klemsz was nominated by BOCO and GDBA.  Richard Bloom was nominated by the existing and newly-appointed directors.  The following is a brief summary of the business experience during the past five years for each newly-elected director:

Board Committee Assignments
The Board has established an Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, Governance Committee and Capital Committee.  The composition of each committee is as follows:
Transactions With Management And Others
Except for the Acquisition, there were no transactions during our current or last fiscal years, or any currently proposed transaction that, to our knowledge, any director, executive officer, nominee, future director, five percent shareholder, or any member of the immediate family of the foregoing persons, have or will have a direct or indirect material interest in which the amount involved exceeds $120,000. In addition, none of the foregoing persons have been indebted to us during such periods in an amount exceeding $120,000.
Director Compensation
In connection with the election of the new directors, the Board adopted a compensation policy for our non-employee directors.  Directors who are employees do not receive any additional compensation for their Board service.

Under the policy, each non-employee director will receive an annual retainer of $20,000 and a fee of $1,500 for each meeting of the full Board they attend.  These directors will also receive additional annual retainers for their service on the Board’s committees in accordance with the following schedule:

Each non-employee director was also granted an option to purchase 225,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.15 per share.  One-third of the shares subject to these options vest on each of the first three anniversaries of the date of grant.

We will reimburse our directors for their reasonable out-of-pocket costs in connection with their Board service.  We plan to enter into indemnification agreements with each of our directors and executive officers once our previously announced reincorporation into Delaware is completed.

Resignation of Director

In connection with the Acquisition, G. Brent Backman tendered his resignation from the Board on December 29, 2010.  Mr. Backman’s resignation will take effect once the four new directors have assumed office.  Mr. Backman did not have any disagreements on any matter relating to our operations, policies or practices.
