The Chief Executive Officer determined the 2006 cash bonus awards to Messrs.

On February 28, 2007, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company determined a cash bonus award to Michael J. Saylor, President and Chief Executive Officer, in the amount of $2,080,836 with respect to his performance during fiscal year ended December 31, 2006, based on a performance goal relating to the Companys diluted earnings per share for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006 previously disclosed by the Company on Form 8-K filed on February 24, 2006. In addition, the Compensation Committee established a formula (2007 Bonus Formula) for determining the bonus amount with respect to Mr. Saylors performance for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007, based on a performance goal relating to the Companys diluted earnings per share for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007. The Compensation Committee has the right to use discretion to award a cash bonus amount lower than the amount calculated using the 2007 Bonus Formula.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
