PROXY STATEMENT

GENERAL INFORMATION

This proxy statement and the enclosed form of proxy are being furnished in connection with the solicitation of proxies by our board of directors to be used at the annual meeting of shareholders to be held at 9:00 a.m. local time, on Thursday, June 26, 2003 and any adjournments. The annual meeting will be held at the Marriott Hotel, 1501 International Parkway, Lake Mary, Florida. The matters to be considered at the meeting are set forth in the attached Notice of Meeting.

Our executive offices are located at 8493 Baymeadows Way, Jacksonville, Florida 32256. This proxy statement and the enclosed form of proxy are first being sent to shareholders on or about May 1, 2003.

RECORD DATE; VOTING SECURITIES

Our board of directors has fixed the close of business on April 28, 2003 as the record date for determination of shareholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the annual meeting. As of April 28, 2003, we had issued and outstanding 15,245,282 shares of common stock, par value $.01 per share, our only class of voting securities outstanding. Each of our shareholders is entitled to one vote for each share of common stock registered in his or her name on the record date.

SOLICITATION, VOTING AND REVOCATION OF PROXIES

Proxies in the form enclosed are solicited by and on behalf of our board of directors. The persons named in the proxy have been designated as proxies by our board of directors. Any proxy given pursuant to this solicitation and received in time for the meeting will be voted as specified in the returned proxy. If no instructions are given, proxies returned by shareholders will be voted "FOR" the election of the nominees as our directors listed below under the caption "Proposal I: Election of Directors" and as the proxies named in the proxy determine in their discretion with respect to any other matters properly brought before the meeting. Any proxy may be revoked by written notice received by our secretary at any time prior to the voting at the meeting, by submitting a subsequent proxy or by attending the annual meeting and voting in person. Attendance by a shareholder at the annual meeting does not alone serve to revoke his or her proxy.

The presence, in person or by proxy, of a majority of the votes entitled to be cast at the meeting will constitute a quorum at the meeting. A proxy submitted by a shareholder may indicate that all or a portion of the shares represented by his or her proxy are not being voted ("shareholder withholding") with respect to a particular matter. Similarly, a broker may not be permitted to vote stock ("broker non-vote") held in street name on a particular matter in the absence of instructions from the beneficial owner of the stock. The shares subject to a proxy which are not being voted on a particular matter because of either shareholder withholding or broker non-vote will not be considered shares present and entitled to vote on the matter. These shares, however, may be considered present and entitled to vote on other matters and will count for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum, unless the proxy indicates that the shares are not being voted on any matter at the meeting, in which case the shares will not be counted for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum.

The directors will be elected by a plurality of the votes cast at the meeting. "Plurality" means that the nominees who receive the highest number of votes in their favor will be elected as our directors. Consequently, any shares not voted "FOR" a particular nominee, because of either shareholder withholding or broker non-vote, will not be counted in the nominee's favor.

1

All other matters that may be brought before the shareholders must be approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast at the meeting. Abstentions from voting are counted as "votes cast" with respect to the proposal and, therefore, have the same effect as a vote against the proposal. Shares deemed present at the meeting but not entitled to vote because of either shareholder withholding or broker non-vote are not deemed "votes cast" with respect to the proposal and therefore will have no effect on the vote.

ANNUAL REPORT

Our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2002, which contains our audited financial statements, is being mailed along with this proxy statement.

We will provide to you exhibits to the Annual Report upon payment of a fee of $.25 per page, plus $5.00 postage and handling charge, if requested in writing to The Secretary, ParkerVision, Inc., 8493 Baymeadows Way, Jacksonville, Florida 32256.

Sterne and Richard Sisisky each missed one meeting during the year. Members of our board of directors generally are elected annually by our shareholders and may be removed as provided for in the 1989 Business Corporation Act of the State of Florida and our articles of incorporation. The board of directors has four committees, the audit committee, the compensation committee, the nominating committee and a strategic planning committee. The strategic planning committee was formed in 2002 to assist the CEO in issues of corporate and business unit strategic planning.

AUDIT COMMITTEE INFORMATION AND REPORT

The audit committee was established in 1994, and during the fiscal year ending December 31, 2002, it was comprised of William A. Hightower, William L. Sammons and Oscar S. Schafer. During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2002, the audit committee met 6 times and acted by unanimous consent one time. The audit committee has also met twice since January 1, 2003, once in connection with the annual report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2002 and once to review and approve a revised and updated Audit Committee charter.

Each of Messrs. Hightower, Sammons and Schafer are considered to be financial experts by the board of directors by reason of their ability to understand generally accepted accounting principles and financial statements, their ability to assess the general application of generally accepted accounting principles in connection with our financial statements, including estimates, accruals and reserves, their experience in analyzing or evaluating financial statements of similar breadth and complexity as our financial statements, their understanding of internal controls and procedures for financial reporting and their understanding of the audit committee functions.

Audit Fees

For the fiscal years ended December 31, 2001 and December 31, 2002, the aggregate fees billed for professional services rendered for the audit of our annual financial statements and the review of our financial statements included in our quarterly reports totaled $103,500 and $118,500, respectively.

Financial Information Systems Design and Implementation Fees

For the fiscal years ended December 31, 2001 and December 31, 2002, there were no fees billed for professional services by our independent auditors rendered in connection with, directly or indirectly, operating or supervising the operation of our information system or managing our local area network.

Tax Services Fees

For the fiscal years ended December 31, 2001 and December 31, 2002, the aggregate fees billed for professional services rendered for tax services by our independent auditors totaled approximately $43,800 and $17,800, respectively.

All Other Fees

Audit Committee Report

Pursuant to our audit committee's written charter, which was adopted on June 12, 2000, the audit committee's responsibilities include, among other things:

o annually reviewing and reassessing the adequacy of the committee's formal charter;

o reviewing our annual audited financial statements with our management and our independent auditors and the adequacy of our internal accounting controls;

o reviewing analyses prepared by management and independent auditors concerning significant financial reporting issues and judgments made in connection with the preparation of our financial statements;

o making recommendations concerning the engagement of the independent auditor;

o reviewing the independence of the independent auditors;

o reviewing our auditing and accounting principles and practices with the independent auditors and reviewing major changes to our auditing and accounting principles and practices as suggested by the independent auditor or our management;

o recommending the appointment of the independent auditor to the board of directors, which firm is ultimately accountable to the audit committee and the board of directors;

o approving professional services provided by the independent auditors, including the range of audit and nonaudit fees; and

6

o reviewing all related party transactions on an ongoing basis for potential conflict of interest situations.

The audit committee pre-approves the services to be provided by its independent auditors. During the period January 1, 2002 through March 31, 2003, the committee reviewed in advance the scope of the annual audit, non-audit services to be performed by the independent auditors and the independent auditors' audit and non-audit fees and approved them. The audit committee also reviews and recommends to the board of directors whether or not to approve transactions between the company and an officer or director outside the ordinary course.

On many occasions during fiscal year 2002 and thereafter, the audit committee met and held discussions with management, the chief accounting officer and our independent auditors. Management represented to the committee that our consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and the committee has reviewed and discussed the consolidated financial statements with management and the independent auditors. The committee discussed with the independent auditors the matters required to be discussed by Statement on Auditing Standards No. 61 (Communication with Audit Committees), various accounting issues relating to presentation of certain things in our financial statements and compliance with Section 10A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Our independent auditors also provided the audit committee with the written disclosures required by the Independence Standards Board Standard No. 1 (Independence Discussions with Audit Committees) and the committee discussed with the independent auditors and management the auditors' independence. The committee discussed financial risk exposures relating to the company with management and the processes in place to monitor and control the exposure resulting therefrom, if any. Based upon the committee's discussion with management and the independent auditors and the committee's review of the representations of management and the report of the independent auditors to the audit committee, the committee recommended that the board of directors include our audited consolidated financial statements in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2002. The committee evaluated the performance of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and recommended to the board their re-appointment as the independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2003.

We cannot determine, without unreasonable effort or expense, the specific amount of certain personal benefits afforded to our employees, or the extent to which benefits are personal rather than business. We have concluded that the aggregate amounts of such personal benefits which cannot be specifically or precisely ascertained do not in any event exceed, as to each individual named in the preceding table, the lesser of $50,000 or 10% of the compensation reported in the preceding table for such individual, or, in the case of a group, the lesser of $50,000 for each individual in the group, or 10% of the compensation reported in the preceding table for the group, and that such information set forth in the preceding table is not rendered materially misleading by virtue of the omission of the value of such personal benefits.

EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS

In September 2000, we entered into an employment agreement with Jeffrey L. Parker, our chairman of the board and chief executive officer, which expires on September 30, 2005. Mr. Parker receives an annual base salary of not less than $275,000 for the first two-year period during the term, not less than $300,000 for the next two-year period during the term and not less than $325,000 for the last year of the term. Mr. Parker will also receive bonuses as may be determined from time to time by the compensation committee. Mr. Parker was awarded two stock options in connection with his employment with us. The first option is for 350,000 shares of common stock, exercisable at a price per share of $41. This option vested immediately and is exercisable until September 7, 2010, except as provided in the option agreement. The second option is for 150,000 shares of common stock, exercisable at $61.50 per share. This option will vest in five equal installments of 30,000 shares on October 1, in each year

from 2001 through 2005, and once vested are exercisable until October 1, 2010, except as provided in the option agreement. As bonus compensation in recognition of fiscal year 2001 employment, Mr. Parker was granted in February 2002 an option to purchase 15,000 shares of common stock at $19.99 per share, currently vested and expiring February 26, 2012.

In March 2002, we entered into an employment agreement with David F. Sorrells, our chief technical officer and a director, which expires March 6, 2007. Mr. Sorrells receives an annual base salary of not less than $250,000 for the first two-year period during the term, and thereafter the base will be increased as determined by the company, but the increase will be by not less than 5% of the prior year's base salary. Mr. Sorrells will also receive an annual bonus as may be determined by the chief executive officer. Mr. Sorrells will be eligible for future awards under our equity performance plans as determined from time to time.

We employed Richard Sisisky from June 1998 to January 9, 2003 as the president and chief operating officer of the company and a director under a written employment agreement. Mr. Sisisky resigned his positions as president, chief operating officer and director on January 9, 2003 and entered into a resignation agreement at that time under which he is employed to consult to the company for the balance of the year. During the employment period as an executive officer and director, Mr. Sisisky received an annual base salary of $250,000 and was entitled to a performance bonus. Mr. Sisisky was awarded two options, under which he currently may acquire shares of common stock at various prices until different dates.

STOCK OPTION PLANS

In September 1993, the board of directors approved our 1993 Stock Plan pursuant to which an aggregate of 500,000 shares of common stock were initially reserved for issuance in connection with the benefits available for grant. The 1993 plan was amended on September 19, 1996, August 22, 1997 and November 16, 1998 by the board of directors to raise the number of shares of common stock subject to the plan to 3,500,000. Each of these amendments was approved by our shareholders. The benefits may be granted in any one or in combination of the following:

o incentive stock options;
o non-qualified stock options;
o stock appreciation rights;
o restricted stock awards;
o stock bonuses;
o other forms of stock benefits; or
o cash.

Incentive stock options may be granted only to our employees. Other benefits may be granted to our consultants, directors (whether or not they are employees of ours), employees and officers. To date, awards to purchase a total of 3,079,494 shares of common stock have been granted and are outstanding or have been exercised under the 1993 plan. As of the date of this proxy statement, we have 420,506 shares of common stock available for grant for awards under the 1993 plan.

In May 2000, the board of directors approved our 2000 Performance Equity Plan pursuant to which a total of 5,000,000 shares of common stock were reserved for issuance in connection with the benefits available for grant. The 2000 plan was approved by our shareholders on July 13, 2000. We have the ability to grant the same type of benefits under the 2000 plan as we are able to under the 1993 plan. Incentive stock options may only be granted to our employees. Other benefits may be granted to our consultants, directors (whether or not they are employees of ours), employees and officers. To date, awards to purchase a total of 2,218,460 shares of common stock have been granted and are outstanding or have been exercised under the 2000 plan. As of the date of this proxy statement, we have 2,781,540 shares of common stock available for grant for awards under the 2000 plan.

COMPENSATION COMMITTEE INFORMATION AND REPORT

Report of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors on Executive Compensation

The compensation committee of the board of directors sets the compensation of the chief executive officer and other executive officers, subject to ratification by the board of directors.

General Compensation Policy

We operate in a competitive and rapidly changing high technology industry. The compensation committee believes that the compensation program for our executive officers should be designed to attract, motivate and retain talented executives responsible for the success of our company. The compensation committee believes the compensation program should be determined within a competitive framework and should be based on achievement of overall financial results and individual contribution.

Compensation Components

The three major components that make up the compensation of our executive officers are:

o base salary;

o annual cash incentive awards in the form of a cash bonus; and

o long-term equity-based incentive awards in the form of stock option grants.

The compensation committee's determination of the compensation components for executive officers is highly subjective and not subject to specific criteria. The compensation committee has, however, compared its executives' compensation levels to independent compensation surveys and compensation packages for executives in similarly sized technology companies and has founds its compensation packages to be comparable.

The base salary for each executive officer is determined at levels considered appropriate for comparable positions at other companies. Annual cash bonuses are subjective and are based on our achievement of financial performance targets as well as individual contribution. Long-term equity-based incentive awards, in the form of stock option grants, are determined subjectively based on the executive's position within us, individual performance, potential for future responsibility and promotion and the number of unvested options held at the time of the new grant. The relative weight given to each of these factors varies among individuals at the compensation committee's discretion.

Executive Compensation

There was no review of Mr. Jeffrey Parker's compensation for fiscal year 2002. Pursuant to his employment agreement, Mr. Parker's salary was increased to $300,000 per annum on October 1, 2002. In February 2002, in respect of employment during fiscal year 2001, Mr. Parker was granted bonus compensation in the form of an option to acquire up to 15,000 shares of common stock at $19.99 per share, vested immediately and expiring February 26, 2012.

The committee approved the employment of Todd Parker as the President of the Video Business Unit of the Company at an annual compensation of $150,000. Mr. Parker's employment is not pursuant to a written employment agreement.

Mr. Sisisky was compensated under an employment agreement and his compensation was not reviewed in 2002 in light of his pending resignation.

12

No bonuses were paid to senior executives for fiscal year 2002.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in any of our previous filings under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that might incorporate our future filings under those statutes, the preceding Compensation Committee Report on Executive Compensation and our Stock Performance Graph (set forth below) will not be incorporated by reference into any of those prior filings, nor will such report or graph be incorporated by reference into any of our future filings under those statutes.

SECTION 16(A) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, requires our officers, directors and persons who beneficially own more than ten percent of a registered class of our equity securities to file reports of ownership and changes in ownership with the SEC and the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. Officers, directors and ten percent shareholders are charged by SEC regulation to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. Based solely upon our review of the copies of such forms received by us, or written representations from certain reporting persons that no Forms 5 were required for those persons, we believe that, during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2002, all filing requirements applicable to our executive officers, directors and ten percent shareholders were fulfilled.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS

We lease our executive offices pursuant to a lease agreement dated March 1, 1992 with Jeffrey L. Parker and Barbara Parker. Barbara Parker is Mr. Parker's mother. The term of the lease expires in 2007 and is renewable for an additional five-year term. For the fiscal years ended December 31, 2002 and 2001, we incurred approximately $298,900 and $310,400 in each year, respectively, in rental expense under the lease. We believe that the terms of the lease are no less favorable than terms we could have obtained from an unaffiliated third party.

Mr. Robert G. Sterne, a director of ours during fiscal year 2002, serves as a patent and intellectual property counsel for us. In this capacity, we paid the law firm Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox, PLLC of which Mr. Sterne is a partner, fees totaling approximately $1,801,000 for the year ended December 31, 2002.

On March 26, 2003, to raise additional working capital, we sold shares of common stock for cash to Leucadia National Corporation, a then holder of greater than 5% beneficial ownership of our common stock, at $3.91 per share for an aggregate of $2,500,000, which per-share price was 80% of the ten-day weighted average price per share ending on the day immediately prior to the sale. Leucadia was also granted registration rights for the purchased shares and a four-year pre-emptive right to acquire additional shares in certain circumstances. As a condition to this purchase, members of the Parker family, including Jeffrey L. Parker, our chief executive officer and chairman of the board, Todd Parker, the president of our Video Business Unit and a director and Stacie Wilf, our corporate secretary and a director, were required to purchase 495,050 shares of common stock for cash at $5.05 per share for an aggregate of $2,500,000, which per-share price was the five-day closing bid price average per share ending on the day immediately prior to the sale. Each of these purchasers was granted registration rights. The transactions were approved in advance by the audit committee and the board of directors, with the interested parties abstaining. As a result of this transaction, Jeffrey L. Parker had a matching transaction to a prior sale of 2,500 shares of common stock pursuant to Section 16(b) and paid the recoverable profit due to the company of $11,715.

INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS

We currently have selected PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as our independent accountants for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2003. A representative of Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP is expected to be present at the meeting with an opportunity to make a statement if he desires to do so and is expected to be available to respond to appropriate questions.

Appendix A Adopted April 25, 2003

AUDIT COMMITTEE CHARTER
OF
PARKERVISION, INC.

PURPOSE

The Audit Committee is appointed by the Board of Directors ("Board") of ParkerVision, Inc. ("Company") to assist the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibility for monitoring (1) the integrity of the Company's accounting and financial reporting and its systems of internal controls, (2) the performance, qualifications and independence of the Company's independent auditors, and (3) the Company's compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

The Audit Committee shall prepare the report required by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("Commission") to be included in the Company's annual proxy statement.

COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP

The Audit Committee shall consist of no fewer than three members, absent a temporary vacancy. The members of the Audit Committee shall meet the independence and experience requirements of The NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc. ("NASDAQ"), Section 10A(m)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("Exchange Act") and the rules and regulations of the Commission. Notwithstanding the foregoing, membership of the Audit Committee will comply with the credential requirements of applicable law, regulation and listing requirements, as applicable to the Company from time to time.

All members of the Audit Committee shall be financially literate. At least one member of the Committee shall be a financial expert, as defined by the Commission rules pursuant to Section 401(h) of Regulation S-K.

The Board of Directors will assess and determine the qualifications of the Audit Committee members. The members of the Audit Committee shall be appointed by the Board, and may be replaced by the Board.

The Board of Directors shall select the Audit Committee Chair. If a Chair is not designated or present, a Chair may be designated by a majority vote of the Audit Committee members present.

Director's compensation is the only compensation which members of the Audit Committee may receive from the Company.

MEETINGS AND PROCEDURES

The Audit Committee shall meet at least quarterly or more frequently as circumstances dictate. The Audit Committee shall meet periodically with management and the independent auditor in separate executive sessions. The Audit Committee may request any officer or employee of the Company or the Company's outside counsel or independent auditor to attend a meeting of the Audit Committee or to meet with any members of, or consultants to, the Audit Committee.

The Committee will keep written minutes of its meetings, which minutes will be maintained with the books and records of the Company. The Committee will provide the Board with regular reports of its activities.

1

The Audit Committee shall review and reassess the adequacy of this Charter annually and recommend any proposed changes to the Board for approval. The Audit Committee annually shall review the Audit Committee's own performance.

The Committee may form subcommittees for any purpose that the Committee deems appropriate and may delegate to such subcommittees such power and authority as the Committee deems appropriate. The Committee will not delegate to a subcommittee any power or authority required by any law, regulation or listing standards to be exercised by the Committee as a whole.

COMMITTEE AUTHORITY AND RESPONSIBILITIES

The primary responsibility of the Committee is to oversee the Company's financial controls and reporting processes on behalf of the Board and report the results of its activities to the Board. The Audit Committee recognizes that the Company's management is responsible for the completeness and accuracy of the Company's financial statements and disclosures and for maintaining effective internal controls. The Committee also realizes that the independent auditor is responsible for auditing the Company's financial statements. Accordingly, management and the independent auditor have more knowledge and more detailed information about the Company than do Audit Committee members and the Audit Committee's primary responsibility is oversight. In carrying out its oversight responsibilities, the Audit Committee will rely, in part, on the expertise of management and the independent auditor. The Committee should take the appropriate actions to set the overall corporate "tone" for quality financial reporting, sound business risk practices, and ethical behavior.

The Audit Committee shall have the authority, to the extent it deems necessary or appropriate, to retain independent legal, accounting or other advisors. The Company shall provide for appropriate funding, as determined by the Audit Committee, for payment of compensation to (i) the independent auditor for the purpose of rendering or issuing an audit report and (ii) any advisors (including counsel) employed by the Audit Committee.

The following shall be the principal recurring processes of the Committee in carrying out its oversight responsibilities. The Committee may perform such other duties and responsibilities as are consistent with its purpose and as the Board or the Committee deems appropriate.

FINANCIAL REPORTING AND INTERNAL CONTROLS

REVIEW OF ANNUAL AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS. The Committee shall review with management and the independent auditors the financial statements to be included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K (or the annual report to shareholders if distributed prior to the filing of the Form 10-K). The Committee will review the (a) quality, not just acceptability, of the Company's accounting principles, including significant financial reporting issues and judgments made in connection with the preparation of the financial statements including alternative methods for presenting financial information that have been discussed with management, the impact of the use of the alternative methods, the methods preferred by management and all material written communications between the independent auditor and management; (b) the clarity and adequacy of disclosures in the financial statements; and the Company's disclosures under Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, including the critical accounting policies; and (c) major issues regarding the adequacy of internal controls and steps taken in light of material deficiencies (if any were noted).

The Committee will discuss the results of the annual audit and any difficulties the independent auditors encountered in the course of their audit work, including any restrictions on the scope of the auditors' activities or access to requested information, and any significant disagreements with management. The Committee will also discuss any other matters required to be communicated to the Committee by the independent auditors under generally accepted auditing standards, and the annual report on controls by the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Accounting Officer, as received by the independent auditors.

2

Based on these reviews and the discussions with management and the independent auditors, the Committee will make a recommendation to the Board whether the audited financial statements should be included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K.

REVIEW OF INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS; EARNINGS RELEASES. The Committee shall review the interim financial statements, and the Company's disclosures under Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, with management and the independent auditors prior to the filing of the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The Committee shall also review any Form 8-K that includes financial disclosures prior to its filing. The Committee will discuss with management any proposed release of earnings or guidance information, and financial information and earnings guidance provided to analysts and rating agencies. The Committee will discuss the results of the quarterly review and any other matters required to be communicated to the Committee by the independent auditors under generally accepted auditing standards.

RISK ASSESSMENT AND RISK MANAGEMENT. The Audit Committee shall review with management and independent auditors the Company's policies for assessing and managing financial risk and the actual risk exposure of the Company.

INTERNAL CONTROLS, DISCLOSURE CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES. The Audit Committee shall review with management and the independent auditors the Company's policies and procedures for maintaining the adequacy and effectiveness of internal controls and disclosure controls procedures. As part of this effort, the Committee will inquire of management and the independent auditor about controls management has implemented to minimize significant risks to the Company and the effectiveness of these controls. The Committee will review the quarterly assessments of such controls and procedures by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Accounting Officer.

The Committee will also review with management and the independent auditor the effect on the Company's financial statements of regulatory and accounting initiatives and off balance sheet structures.

o INDEPENDENT AUDITORS

The Audit Committee shall have the sole authority to appoint or replace the independent auditor. The Audit Committee shall be directly responsible for determining the compensation and oversight of the work of the independent auditor (including resolution of disagreements between management and the independent auditor regarding financial reporting) for the purpose of preparing or issuing an audit report or related work. The independent auditor shall report directly to the Audit Committee.

The Committee shall review the auditors' independence from management and the Company, including whether the auditors' performance of permissible non-audit services is compatible with their independence. This process will include, as least annually, the Committee's review of the independent auditors' internal control procedures, any material issues raised by the most recent internal quality-control review, or peer review, of the independent auditors, or by any inquiry or investigation by governmental or professional authorities, within the preceding five years, respecting one or more independent audits carried out by the independent auditors, and any steps taken to deal with any such issues; and (to assess the auditors' independence) all relationships between the independent auditors and the Company.

Annually, the Committee will review the qualifications and performance of the Company's current independent auditors and select the Company's independent auditors for the next year.

The Committee shall review with the independent auditors prior to the audit the overall scope, planning and staffing of their audit. The Audit Committee shall pre-approve all auditing services and permitted non-audit services to be performed for the Company by its independent auditor, including the fees and terms

3

thereof (subject to the de minimus exceptions for non-audit services described in Section 10A(i)(1)(B) of the Exchange Act which are approved by the Audit Committee prior to the completion of the audit).

The Committee shall verify the rotation of the lead (or coordinating) audit partner having primary responsibility for the audit and the audit partner responsible for reviewing the audit as required by law. The Committee shall consider whether, in order to assure continuing auditor independence, it is appropriate to adopt a policy of rotating the independent auditing firm on a regular basis.

The Committee shall oversee the Company's hiring of employees or former employees of the independent auditor who participated in any capacity in the audit of the Company.

o COMPLIANCE WITH LEGAL AND REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

The Audit Committee shall obtain, from the independent auditor, assurance that Section 10A(b) of the Exchange Act has not been implicated. The Committee shall inquire and review with management the Company's compliance with applicable laws and regulations and, where applicable, recommend policies and procedures for future compliance. The Committee shall review with management and the independent auditor any correspondence with regulators or governmental agencies and any published reports that raise material issues regarding the Company's financial statements or accounting policies. The Committee shall also review with the Company's General Counsel legal matters that may have a material impact on the financial statements or the Company's compliance policies

The Committee shall review and approve all related-party transactions.

The Committee shall establish procedures for the receipt, retention and treatment of complaints received by the Company regarding accounting, internal accounting controls or reports which raise material issues regarding the Company's financial statements or accounting policies.

LIMITATION OF AUDIT COMMITTEE'S ROLE

While the Audit Committee has the responsibilities and powers set forth in this Charter, it is not the duty of the Audit Committee to plan or conduct audits or to determine that the Company's financial statements and disclosures are complete and accurate and are in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and applicable rules and regulations. These are the responsibilities of management and the independent auditor.
