Compensation Committee. Jim first joined Datascope's Board in 2004.
Datascope has recruited and continues to recruit directors with a blend
of business talents, skill sets and experience to further strengthen the
Board and add fresh perspectives. Over the past four years, the Board has
recruited Rob Klatell, Jim Loughlin and William Wyman. Bill Wyman has
extensive experience in the medical industry from his role as a trustee of
the Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, a 400-bed primary trauma center, for
12 years; a trustee of The Dartmouth Clinic, a 650 doctor entity, for six
years; and a trustee of the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (the largest
academic medical center in northern New England), which oversees and
coordinates the operations of the Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, The
Dartmouth Clinic, the Dartmouth Medical School and a local VA hospital, for
DISREGARD RAMIUS' WHITE PROXY CARD -
THEY OFFER SHAREHOLDERS NOTHING As you consider your vote for the upcoming Annual Meeting, keep in mind
the following four things about Ramius and its candidates:
-- Ramius is a short-sighted hedge fund that did not own a single share in
Datascope until three months ago.
-- Ramius and its nominees have NO PLAN for Datascope or its shareholders.
-- Ramius' nominees, if elected, would serve NO BUSINESS PURPOSE on your
Board other than to advance Ramius' short-term, opportunistic
-- Ramius' nominees, if elected, could jeopardize Datascope's strategic
direction and negatively affect the value of your investment.
The Ramius nominees are not qualified to be elected to your Board. They have neither the skill set, the experience nor the independence to add anything constructive to your Board. Ramius seeks your support, but offers you nothing in return.
