          (e) Amendment of Brightpoint’s 2004 Long-Term Incentive Plan
          At the May 13, 2008 annual meeting of shareholders (“Annual Meeting”), the shareholders of Brightpoint, Inc. (the “Company”), approved the proposals set forth in the Company’s proxy statement relating to the Annual Meeting, including the proposal to approve an amendment of Brightpoint’s 2004 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “2004 Plan”) to increase the number of shares available for issuance thereunder by 2,173,953 shares. Including these 2,173,953 shares, there are now 2,881,373 shares available for issuance under the 2004 Plan.
          The 2004 Plan provides for the grant of any or all of the following types of awards (collectively, “Awards”): (i) stock options, (ii) performance units, (iii) restricted stock, (iv) deferred stock, (v) other stock-based awards (including restricted stock units), and (vi) cash awards.
          The Company’s compensation and human resources committee administers the 2004 Plan and determines eligibility for Awards. Under the 2004 Plan, the Company’s officers and other employees, employees of any subsidiary of the Company, and the Company’s directors, independent agents, and consultants are eligible to receive Awards. The compensation and human resources committee determines to whom Awards will be granted, the term of the Awards and the type and number of shares subject to each Award. No participant may be granted more than 2,025,000 shares of Common Stock during any year (subject to adjustment for stock splits, recapitalizations, mergers or other similar corporate transactions that affects the number of shares of common stock outstanding). No participant may receive Awards that are settled in cash in an amount that exceeds the greater of the fair market value on the date of grant or award of any stock awards received that year.
          The effective date of the 2004 Plan was June 4, 2004. No awards under the 2004 Plan will be granted on or after the ten-year anniversary of the effective date; provided, however, that awards granted prior to the ten-year anniversary of the effective date may extend beyond that date.
          The description of the 2004 Plan in this report does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the language in the 2004 Plan, which is incorporated herein by reference to Annex A of the Company’s definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 31, 2008.
          As set forth in the Company’s proxy statement regarding the Annual Meeting, upon the approval by its shareholders of the 2,173,953 increase in shares available for future grant under the 2004 Plan, the Company’s board of directors resolved to terminate making any new grants under the Company’s Amended and Restated Independent Director Stock Compensation Plan, which had 2,173,953 shares available for issuance thereunder.
          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 thereunto duly authorized.
