Item 14.    Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

        Section 145(a) of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful.

        Section 145(b) of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that such person acted in any of the capacities set forth above, against expenses (including attorneys' fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if he or she acted under similar standards, except that no indemnification may be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the court in which such action or suit was brought shall determine that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to be indemnified for such expenses which the court shall deem proper.

II-1



        Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law further provides that (i) to the extent that a former or present director or officer of a corporation has been successful in the defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in subsections (a) and (b) or in the defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, such person shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys' fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him or her in connection therewith; (ii) indemnification provided for by Section 145 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which the indemnified party may be entitled; and (iii) the corporation may purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any present or former director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation or any person who at the request of the corporation was serving in such capacity for another entity against any liability asserted against such person and incurred by him or her in any such capacity or arising out of his or her status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify him or her against such liabilities under Section 145.

        As permitted by Section 102(b)(7) of the Delaware General Corporation Law, the registrant's Restated Certificate of Incorporation provides that a director shall not be liable to the registrant or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director. However, such provision does not eliminate or limit the liability of a director for acts or omissions not in good faith or for breaching his or her duty of loyalty, engaging in intentional misconduct or knowingly violating a law, paying a dividend or approving a stock repurchase that was illegal, or obtaining an improper personal benefit. In addition, the registrant's Restated Certificate of Incorporation and bylaws contain provisions requiring indemnification of directors and executive officers of the registrant to the fullest extent authorized by the Delaware General Corporation Law, and permittiing the indemnification of its other employees and agents (and employees and agents of its subsidiaries and affiliates) to the fullest extent authorized under the Delaware General Corporation Law. We have entered into indemnification agreements with each of its directors and each of its officers at the senior vice president level and above. These agreements provide for indemnification to the fullest extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law.

        Under the provisions of the registrant's Restated Certificate of Incorporation, expenses incurred by a director or executive officer in defending a civil or criminal suit or proceeding shall be paid by the registrant in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the person seeking indemnification to repay such amounts if it is ultimately determined that he or she is not entitled to be indemnified. The registrant's Restated Certificate of Incorporation currently authorizes, but does not require, advancement of expenses to employees and agents of the registrant on the same conditions that apply to directors and executive officers of the registrant. The rights to indemnification set forth in the registrant's Restated Certificate of Incorporation and bylaws are not exclusive of any provisions with respect thereto in other contracts or agreements between the registrant and any officer, director, employee or agent of the registrant, including the indemnification agreements described above.

        The registrant may, to the fullest extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any officer, director, employee or agent against any liability that may be asserted against such person. All of the registrant's directors and officers will be covered by insurance policies maintained by the registrant against certain liabilities for actions taken in their capacities as such, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933.

Item 15.    Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities.

        Share numbers in the following discussion have been adjusted to give effect to the stock split effected as part of the recapitalization contemplated in connection with this offering.

        In September 2003, the registrant issued 881,435 shares of common stock in partial consideration for the acquisition of assets of NightFire Software, Inc., 26,366 of which shares were returned to the

II-2



registrant in satisfaction of indemnification claims in accordance with the definitive acquisition agreement. This issuance was undertaken in reliance upon the exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 afforded by Rule 506 promulgated thereunder. The registrant believes that exemptions other than the foregoing exemption may exist for this transaction.

        In February 2005, the registrant issued 35,745 shares of common stock in partial consideration for an acquisition. This issuance was undertaken in reliance upon the exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 afforded by Rule 505 promulgated thereunder. The registrant believes that exemptions other than the foregoing exemption may exist for this transaction.

        In July 2004, the registrant issued phantom stock units covering 350,000 shares of common stock to an executive officer of the registrant. This issuance was undertaken in reliance upon the exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 afforded by Rule 701 promulgated thereunder, as a transaction pursuant to the compensatory benefit plans and contracts relating to compensation. The registrant believes that exemptions other than the foregoing may exist for this transaction.

        Since March 1, 2002, the registrant has issued to directors, officers, employees and consultants options to purchase 10,470,381 shares of common stock with per share exercise prices ranging from $3.1795 to $10.8571, and issued 1,529,551 shares of common stock upon exercise of options during that time. This issuance was undertaken in reliance upon the exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, including by Rule 701 promulgated thereunder, as a transaction pursuant to the compensatory benefit plans and contracts relating to compensation. From March 2002 through February 2005, however, the registrant did not supply the holders of options granted under its equity incentive plan with its financial statements or information about the risks associated with investment in its securities, as required to comply with Rule 701. As a result, shares issued upon exercise of these options were issued in violation of Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933, and holders of such shares have the right to rescind their purchases, subject to applicable statutes of limitations.

Financial Statement Schedules.

        Schedule II—Valuation and Qualifying Accounts

        All other schedules for which provision is made in the applicable accounting regulation of the Securities and Exchange Commission are not required under the related instructions or are inapplicable, and therefore have been omitted.

Item 17.    Undertakings

        The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

        (a)   To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

        (b)   That, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities

II-6


offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof;

        (c)   To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering;

        (d)   To provide to the underwriters at the closing specified in the underwriting agreement certificates in such denominations and registered in such names as required by the underwriters to permit prompt delivery to each purchaser;

        (e)   Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue;

        (f)    For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this registration statement as of the time it was declared effective; and

        (g)   For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
