According to an Arizona statute, if a person or group acquires 20% or more of
the stock of a public corporation, the shares in excess of the 20% threshold may
not be voted on matters other than the election of directors (subject to limited
exceptions). This statute, on its face, applies to any public company that is
headquartered in Arizona, has assets of at least $1 million in Arizona and has
more than 500 Arizona employees. In a 2007 decision, a federal court in Arizona
stated that the statute is unconstitutional and unenforceable in the case of an
entity, like Republic, that is incorporated in Delaware. If the statute were
deemed to be enforceable and applicable to us and to the shares of our common
stock held by Cascade Investment, L.L.C. ("Cascade") (which held approximately
34.1% of our common stock as of the record date for the Annual Meeting),
approximately 45 million fewer shares would have been voted for each of
proposals two through four, but the outcome of the decisions on those matters
would not have been impacted. The Company does not currently take any position
regarding the enforceability of the statute or its application to us or the
common stock voted by Cascade.
