individuals including John J. Shalam, who owns 60% of the partnership,
Philip Christopher, who owns 10%, James Wohlberg who owns 5%, and John J.
Shalam's brother-in-law who owns 25%.
The Company believes that the terms of each of the foregoing leases are no
less favorable to the Company than those which could have been obtained from

between the Company and such persons in the future, such conflicts will be
resolved by a committee of independent directors.
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND COMMITTEES

management and conduct of the business and affairs of the Company.
The Audit Committee, which held one meeting in fiscal 1994, consists of two
members, namely Mr. Gordon Tucker and Mr. Irving Halevy. The Audit Committee

once during fiscal 1994, consists of two members, namely, Messrs. Halevy and

COMPENSATION OF DIRECTORS
For their service, members of the Board of Directors who are not salaried
employees of the Company receive an annual retainer of $10,000.
COMPENSATION COMMITTEE INTERLOCKS AND INSIDER PARTICIPATION
The Compensation Committee currently is composed of two outside directors,
Gordon Tucker and Irving Halevy.
COMPENSATION COMMITTEE REPORT ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
TO: THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors which consists entirely
of independent outside directors, has furnished the following report on
The Compensation Committee exercises the power and authority of the Board of
Directors with respect to the Compensation of the Company's employees. It
administers the Company's stock options and restricted stock plans, reviews
compensation levels of executive officers and evaluates the performance of the
Company's executive officers.
The Company's policy on executive compensation is to provide competitive
salaries based on both corporate and individual performance which will attract,
motivate and retain executives with superior abilities. The Company does not
have any employment agreements with its executive officers.
Corporate performance is evaluated in terms of the attainment of corporate
objectives measured by increased revenues from operations and increased
stockholders' equity over the prior fiscal year. The Committee has taken
particular note of management's success in maintaining the Company's
profitability and negotiating and consummating the public offering of the
Company's joint venture, CellStar Corporation.
Individual performance is based upon the performance of each executive
officer and the division for which he is responsible. Base salaries for the
Company's executive officers are fixed at levels consistent with the competitive
amounts paid to senior executives with comparable qualifications at companies
engaged in the same or similar businesses. However, certain executive officers'
compensation, such as Messrs. Christopher, Lavelle and Bagwell, is closely tied
to the individual executive's success in achieving financial performance goals
within his division. The bonuses paid to Messr. Christopher, Lavelle and Bagwell
for fiscal 1994 were based on the profits achieved in each of their respective
divisions. The bonuses paid to Mr. Shalam and Mr. Stoehr for fiscal 1994 were in
recognition of their outstanding effort in negotiating and consummating the
CellStar public offering and the resultant sale of the Company's shares in
The Compensation Committee has fixed the base salary of the Chief Executive
Officer based on competitive compensation data, the Committee's assessment of
Mr. Shalam's past performance and its expectation as to his future contributions
in guiding and directing the Company and its business. In light of Section
162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code, which imposes a limitation on the
deductibility of compensation paid to certain executive officers, the Committee
has adopted, subject to stockholder approval, a bonus plan for Mr. Shalam which
provides for payment of a bonus based on the pre-tax profits of the Company and
its subsidiaries. This plan, if approved by the Stockholders, would provide for
payment of a performance-based bonus to Mr. Shalam commencing with the fiscal
year ending November 30, 1995.

represent the value that such investments would have had on November 30, 1994.
PROPOSAL TO APPROVE THE CEO BONUS PLAN
(Item 2 on Proxy Card)
The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors has adopted a
performance based compensation plan for the Company's Chief Executive Officer
which provides for payment of a bonus to him at the end of each fiscal year,
commencing with the fiscal year ending November 30, 1995 (the "CEO Bonus Plan").
The CEO Bonus Plan is a performance based compensation plan designed to meet the
requirements for an exception from the limitations of Section 162(m) of the
Internal Revenue Code ["Sec.162(m)], which limits the corporate Federal income
tax deduction that would otherwise be available for compensation paid by the
Company to certain executive officers, including the Chief Executive Officer, in
certain circumstances. The CEO Bonus Plan is now being presented to the
stockholders for approval.
ADMINISTRATION OF THE PLAN
The CEO Bonus Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee of the
Board of Directors (the "Committee") which is composed entirely of non-employee
outside directors of the Company who meet the qualification requirements of
Sec.162(m). The Committee has established, prior to the commencement of the
fiscal year ended November 30, 1995 a performance goal under the CEO Bonus Plan.
The Committee reserves the right to terminate the CEO Bonus Plan at any time or
to amend it subject to the requirements of Sec.162(m) and retains the discretion
to reduce any payment under the plan even if the performance goal is met.
Participation in the CEO Bonus Plan is limited to Mr. John J. Shalam, the
Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
DETERMINATION OF BONUS
The Chief Executive Officer will be eligible for an annual cash bonus equal
to three (3%) percent of the Company's and its subsidiaries' annual pre-tax
profits. For purposes of this plan, pre-tax profits shall mean the Company's and
its subsidiaries' net profit before extraordinary items, other non-recurring
transactions and income taxes of the Company for each fiscal year determined in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
The Board of Directors believes that it is in the best interest of the
Company and its shareholders to preserve the tax deductibility, under
Sec.162(m), of certain compensation paid to the Company's Chief Executive
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE
COMPANY'S CEO BONUS PLAN.
RELATIONSHIP WITH INDEPENDENT AUDITORS
The Board has again appointed the firm of KPMG Peat Marwick LLP as
independent auditors for the fiscal year ending November 30, 1995. A
representative of KPMG Peat Marwick LLP will be present at the Annual Meeting of
Stockholders to respond to appropriate questions from stockholders and will have
the opportunity to make a statement if he so desires.
Management does not know of any matters to be presented for action at the
meeting other than as set forth in Items 1 and 2 of the Notice of Annual
Meeting. However, if any other matters come before the meeting, it is intended
that the holders of the proxies will vote thereon in their discretion.
DATE FOR RECEIPT OF STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS
Proposals of stockholders intended to be presented at the next Annual
Meeting of stockholders currently scheduled for May 10, 1996, must be received
