Vice- President of Finance and Administration of Teledyne Microelectronics. Mr. Reynolds also was a program finance
            administrator of Teledyne Systems Company for five years. He has a B.B.A. degree in Accounting from Woodbury College.

               In determining whether the nomination of each current director was appropriate and that each current director is
            qualified to serve on the Board of Directors, the Board considered the following:

               Marvin H. Fink:  Mr. Fink has significant experience in a variety of areas important to overseeing the management and
            operations of this Company, including experience as an executive officer, an engineer and a lawyer. Mr. Fink has been the
            principal executive officer of a public company as well as the President of Teledyne’s Electronics Group. He has degrees in
            engineering and law and was involved in the electronics industry for over 40 years.

               Howard F. Hill:  Mr. Hill is a founder of the Company and has over 60 years of experience in the electronics industry.

               Joseph Benoit:  Mr. Benoit has significant financial management and banking experience, having served in various
            executive positions at Union Bank.

               William L. Reynolds:  Mr. Reynolds has significant accounting and financial management expertise, having served as
            VP of Finance and Administration for Teledyne Controls, as the Vice-President of Finance and Administration of Teledyne
            Microelectronics, and as a program finance administrator of Teledyne Systems Company. He also has a degree in accounting,
            which enables him to serve as the “audit committee financial expert” of the Audit Committee.

               Gerald T. Garland:  Mr. Garland has significant leadership experience in product management, sales management,
            solutions development, global sourcing and financial management. Mr. Garland served as a Chief Financial Officer and Senior
            Vice President for a leading distributor and solutions provider to the wireless industry for over 18 years. Mr. Garland has also
            held senior leadership positions with Bank of America, Stanley Black & Decker, American Express and TESSCO Technologies.

            Terms of Service
               Each director to be elected will hold office until his three-year term expires and until his successor is elected and has
            qualified, or until his or her death, resignation, or removal.

            Board Leadership Structure
               Currently, the positions of Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of the Company are held by
            separate individuals, with Mr. Fink serving as Chairman of the Board and Robert Dawson serving as Chief Executive Officer.
            Mr. Fink, an independent director, has served as the Chairman of the Board since 2007, and the Company has continuously
            had a separate Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer for more than a decade. The Chairman of the Board is
            appointed by our Board of Directors on an annual basis.
               The Board of Directors currently believes that this structure is best for the Company, as it allows Mr. Dawson to focus
            on the Company’s strategy, business and operations, while enabling Mr. Fink to manage our Board of Directors and serve as
            a liaison between the Board and the Company’s senior management, led by Mr. Dawson. Additionally, the Board currently
            believes the separation of offices is beneficial, because a separate Chairman can provide the Chief Executive Officer with
            guidance and feedback on his performance and the Chairman provides a more effective channel for the Board to express its
            views on management. This structure can also enable Mr. Fink and the other members of the Board to be better informed and
            to communicate more effectively on issues, including with respect to risk oversight matters.

               The Board does not believe that a formal policy separating the positions of Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive
            Officer is necessary. The Board continually evaluates our leadership structure and could in the future decide to combine the
            Chairman and Chief Executive Officer positions if it believes that doing so would serve the best interests of the Company and
            our stockholders.

               Robert Dawson, President and Chief Executive Officer, was hired on July 17, 2017. Mr. Dawson was most recently
            President and Chief Executive Officer of Vision Technology Services, an information technology consulting and project
            management company that was acquired by BG Staffing.  He spent 2007-2013 at TESSCO Technologies, a publicly traded
