Thank you for attending GameStops Annual Stockholder Meeting. Before we get on with the formal proceedings today, Id like to honor our three board members: Michael Rosen, Mickey Steinberg and Ed Volkwein who are retiring at this meeting. These members have a combined 37 years of experience on this Board and have been instrumental in the growth and success of our company. Let me briefly discuss each members contribution.
Michael Rosen has been on our Board since its inception in 1999. I have known Michael since 1987 when I was with Software Etc., a division of B. Dalton, which was sold to Barnes & Noble. Michael was the independent counsel to Barnes & Noble. He served as Corporate Secretary of GameStop from October 1999 until May 2007 and has served on the Executive Committee.
Mickey Steinberg has been on the GameStop Board since 2005 following the merger with Electronics Boutique where he was on that Board since 1998. He has served on the Nominating and Governance Committee of this Board and has prior service on the Audit Committee of the Electronics Boutique Board.
Ed Volkwein has been on our Board since 2002. I have known Ed since 1992 when he was the head of Marketing for Sega and was one of the members responsible for the success of the Sega Genesis console. He has served on the Compensation Committee, Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Audit Committee.
The Board of Directors recognized each of these individuals contributions with resolutions last night, and I want to personally thank Michael, Mickey and Ed for the guidance, wisdom and support they have given me and our management team over the years.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
