DOCUMENTS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE

EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

We are amending our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2004 (“Form 10-K”) to correct information contained in Item 10 with respect to Section 16(a) beneficial reporting compliance, which information was incorporated by reference to our Proxy Statement for the 2005 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and to correct several typographical errors in the certifications of the principal executive officer and principal financial officer of the Registrant as filed pursuant to Rule 13a-14(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The corrected certifications, filed as Exhibit 32.1 with this amendment, supersede Exhibit 32.1 as initially filed with the Form 10-K.

 

Except as discussed above, we have not modified or updated disclosures presented in the original annual report on Form 10-K in this Form 10-K/A. Accordingly, this Form 10-K/A does not reflect events occurring after the filing of our original Form 10-K or modify or update those disclosures affected by subsequent events. Information not affected by this amendment is unchanged and reflects the disclosures made at the time of the original filing of the Form 10-K on March 30, 2005. This Form 10-K/A should be read in conjunction with the original Form 10-K and the filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission subsequent to the filing of the original Form 10-K, including any amendments to any such filings.

ITEM 10. Directors and Executive Officers

 

The information required by this item concerning our directors is incorporated by reference to our Proxy Statement including but not necessarily limited to the section entitled Election of Directors. Certain information required by this item concerning executive officers is set forth in Part I of this Report in Business—Executive Officers.

 

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires the Company’s executive officers, directors and persons who own more than 10% of the Company’s common stock to file reports of ownership and changes in ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Company recently undertook a review of the Section 16(a) reports filed on behalf of each individual who served as a director or executive officer of the Company during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2004 to determine whether all of their reportable transactions in the Company’s common stock were timely reported and to ensure reporting of all of their beneficial holdings. The review revealed that while all of the required transactions had been reported, the reports listed below were not timely filed. In most cases, the transactions were non-market transactions such as option grants by the Company or the cash exercise of previously granted stock options.

 

The following late reports were filed under Section 16(a) since the beginning of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2004:

 

Dr. D. Christopher Chung, a Vice President, filed one late Form 4 reporting the award of stock options.

Ms. Doris Engibous, a director, filed one late Form 4 reporting the award of stock options.

Mr. Mark Foster, a former Vice President, filed one late Form 4 reporting the award of stock options.

Mr. James Hawkins, President and Chief Executive Officer, filed one late Form 4 reporting the award of stock options.

Mr. Ken Ludlum, a director, filed two late Forms 4 each reporting cash exercises of stock options.

Mr. William Mince, a Vice President, filed one late Form 4 reporting the award of stock options.

Mr. William Moore, a director, filed three late Forms 4 each reporting the sale of shares of common stock.

Mr. Steven Murphy, a Vice President, filed one late Form 4 reporting the award of stock options.

Mr. George Ryan, a former Vice President, filed one late Form 4 reporting the award of stock options.

Mr. Kenneth Traverso, a Vice President, filed one late Form 4 reporting the award of stock options.

 

Audit Committee and Audit Committee Financial Expert

 

The Audit Committee of our Board of Directors is an “audit committee” for purposes of Section 3(a)(58) of the Exchange Act. The members of the Audit Committee are Ken Ludlum, Robert A. Gunst, and Mark D. Michael. Our Board of Directors has determined that Ken Ludlum is our designated audit committee financial expert. All of the members of our audit committee are considered “independent” as the term is used in Item 7(d)(3)(iv) of Schedule 14A under the Exchange Act.

 

Code of Conduct and Ethics

 

We have a code of conduct and ethics that applies to all of our employees, including our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, and principal accounting officer or controller. This code of conduct and ethics is posted on our internet website. The internet address for our website is www.natus.com, and the code of conduct and ethics may be found in the “Governance” section of our “Investor” webpage.

 

We intend to satisfy the disclosure requirement under Item 10 of Form 8-K regarding certain amendments to, or waivers from, provisions of this code of conduct and ethics by posting such information on our website, at the address and location specified above, or as otherwise required by The NASDAQ Stock Market.
