Hawkins, 127,728 shares and Kurt R. Norman, 28,910 shares. The Trustees also have dispositive power with respect to all 2,418,023 shares, provided that this power is limited by a requirement that the assets of the ESOP Trust must consist primarily of shares of the Issuer's stock. Each Trustee disclaims beneficial ownership of the shares attributed to him solely as a Trustee of the ESOP. - -------- (1) Mr. Hawkins has sole voting and dispositive power over all of these 83,002 shares, except 44,535 shares held by him as custodian for one minor child as to which he has full voting and dispositive power, but as to which he disclaims beneficial ownership; and 38,019 shares that Mr. Hawkins holds jointly with his wife as to which he shares voting and dispositive power.
