Cholestech urges all stockholders to vote "FOR" the merger transaction, consistent with the recommendations of ISS, Glass- Lewis and Cholestech's board of directors.
Since approval of the merger requires the affirmative vote of at least a majority of the outstanding shares, each Cholestech stockholder's vote is extremely important, regardless of the number of shares owned. A failure to vote will have the same effect as a vote against the transaction.
Cholestech stockholders should vote by telephone or by Internet by following the easy instructions on the proxy card, or by signing, dating and returning the proxy card promptly to ensure their shares are voted.
Cholestech's Special Meeting of Stockholders will be held on September 12, 2007 at 10:00 a.m., local time, at Cholestech's executive offices at 3347 Investment Boulevard, Hayward, California 94545.
