Under the terms of the agreement, the Company will nominate to its Board of Directors: two of management's nominees, Dorrit J. Bern, the Company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer and Alan Rosskamm; two of the Committee's nominees, Arnaud Ajdler and Michael C. Appel; and two experienced retail executives, Richard W.
