Company receives Vendor of the Year Award from Target Corporation
The Company also announced that it was awarded 2005 Vendor of the Year honors from Target Corporation, one of the nation"s leading retailers. Each year Target recognizes and honors certain vendors for their business practices, commitment to Target"s success, support of Target"s differentiation strategies and brand character, value and reliability. This is the second time that Gaiam has received this honor.
"This prestigious award is a tribute to Gaiam and all of our employees," commented Ms. Powers. "We are very proud to be recognized by Target as a leading partner in providing the best value to its customers. We look forward to a continuing and beneficial relationship with Target."
Because of the expiration of certain incentive options granted to Gaiam"s management in 1999, the company negotiated block sale of approximately 200,000 shares to cover these expirations. This block included option granted to company President Lynn Powers and CFO Janet Mathews.
