Since November 2000, we have leased space on a month-to-month basis for our San Francisco studio facility from JH Partners, LLC, a San Francisco-based private equity firm. John Hansen, Chairman of the Board of Directors, is President of JH Partners, LLC. We paid $100,800 in aggregate rental payments under this lease for each of fiscal years 2002 and 2003 and 2004.

Mr. Badovinus, our former President and Chief Executive Officer, serves as a senior operating partner for JH Partners, LLC. As a senior operating partner, Mr. Badovinus participates in deal origination, the due diligence process and as a director of some of JH Partners portfolio companies.

From July 1999 to May 2000, Mr. Forbes served as Chief Executive Officer of Design Within Reach, Inc.

We believe that we have executed all of the transactions set forth above on terms no less favorable to us than terms we could have obtained from unaffiliated third parties.
