Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Committee recognizes that because of his proposal, Michael Barrist has a continuing interest in acquiring the Company in partnership with One Equity Partners and accordingly has a conflict of interest and will recuse himself from the Committee's process.The Committee will determine which information regarding the process, if any, will be made available to Michael Barrist.Despite such conflict (and acknowledging that Michael Barrist therefore is not disinterested and may be partial to his acquiring the Company in partnership with One Equity), the Committee has determined it is in the Company's best interests that Michael Barrist continue as CEO of the Company, and the Committee may, from time to time, request that Michael, as CEO of the Company, make himself available to provide information to and answer questions of other potential acquirors.

In connection with Mr. Barrist's request that OEP and its financing sources be permitted to conduct due diligence on the Company, in late May 2006, OEP was sent the form of NDA that other potential bidders had been asked to sign.
On June 5, 2006, at the direction of the special committee, Credit Suisse requested that Mr. Barrist inform potential financial bidders that he was willing to be an equity investor along with such bidders.However, Mr. Barrist had determined that OEP was his preferred partner based on, among other things, his belief of OEP's long-term investment horizon, OEP's potential helpful affiliation with JPMorgan Chase, and OEP's willingness to offer and pay what Mr. Barrist believed was full and fair value for NCO.Although Mr. Barrist did not communicate these reasons to Credit Suisse, Mr. Barrist informed Credit Suisse, and then instructed his counsel to inform representatives of Bass Berry that, while he would continue to comply fully with his duties as a director and officer of NCO in all respects, he was not willing at that time to commit to participate as an equity investor with any financial sponsor other than OEP.
Also on June 5, 2006, representatives of Cleary Gottlieb, counsel to Mr. Barrist, further advised representatives of Bass Berry that OEP would not agree to the "standstill" provision of the proposed NDA.
...
From June 5, 2006 through June 7, 2006, separate telephone conference calls were held with eight potential bidders which had executed NDAs to provide them with an overview of the business from Mr. Barrist, John R. Schwab, NCO's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, and Steven L. Winokur, NCO's Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Shared Services, and to provide them with an opportunity to ask preliminary diligence questions.
...
The special committee was also informed that Mr. Barrist had communicated through his counsel that, while he would continue to comply fully with his duties as a director and officer of NCO in all respects, he was unwilling at that time to commit to participate as an equity investor with any financial sponsor other than OEP and that OEP had indicated that it was not willing to agree to the standstill provision in the proposed NDA.
...
Representatives of Bass Berry reported to the special committee on the status of the negotiations with Mr. Barrist and OEP on the proposed NDA.Because no other bids had been received by the June 8th deadline, the special committee authorized Bass Berry and Blank Rome to meet with representatives of Mr. Barrist and OEP to discuss outstanding issues under the proposed merger agreement and NDA.Among the reasons for authorizing counsel to attempt to finalize the terms of the merger agreement and NDA was the lack of alternative bids.The special committee requested that Credit Suisse attempt to seek definitive responses from potential bidders which had not responded by the June 8th deadline.The special committee also authorized Bass Berry to advise Mr. Barrist and OEP that, if OEP executed the NDA, OEP and its financing sources would be given

access to the requested due diligence materials and the special committee would negotiate with Mr. Barrist and OEP on an exclusive basis for a limited period.Mr. Barrist, OEP and their representatives were not advised by the special committee or, to the knowledge of the special committee, by anyone else of the lack of other bidders during the negotiation process.
Following the meeting, potential bidders which had not responded by the June 8th deadline were contacted to confirm that they did not intend to submit a bid.During the period from May 30, 2006 to June 9, 2006, Credit Suisse was informed by several of the prospective bidders which had signed NDAs that they were declining to submit a bid because they believed that they could not be competitive with OEP or were otherwise unwilling to compete with OEP, citing in some cases the price reflected in OEP's proposal or Mr. Barrist's expected participation as an equity investor with OEP.Other prospective bidders indicated difficulty in pursuing a potential transaction at that time, a lack of interest in portions of NCO's business or the fact that NCO did not have sufficient business in Europe.
Between June 8, 2006 and June 10, 2006, Mr. Pound discussed with Mr. Barrist the potential for an increase in the price per share offered by Mr. Barrist and OEP.

At this meeting, after further discussion of the status of negotiations with Mr. Barrist and OEP, the special committee authorized its advisors (i) to permit OEP limited access to senior management to obtain updated information on the Company's financial results since March 31, 2006, to the extent available, (ii) to continue to negotiate the terms of the proposed merger agreement and related documents, and (iii) if the terms of the proposed merger agreement could be negotiated in all material respects and the parties reached agreement on the terms of the NDA, then the due diligence information requested by OEP and its financing sources would be provided.
In the third and fourth weeks of June, 2006, Messrs.Barrist, Schwab and Winokur updated the independent directors and, with the consent of the board, representatives of OEP on the Company's results of operations for the quarter to date and, with the consent of the board, met with representatives of OEP and Morgan Stanley, its financing source, to assist in their due diligence review.
...
Under the terms of the NDA, the Company agreed to provide due diligence information to OEP under customary confidentiality terms and to negotiate exclusively with OEP for a period of 21 days, and OEP agreed to a customary standstill provision with respect to any offer below $27.50 per share, provided that, if OEP together with Mr. Barrist made a proposal at a price of at least $27.50 per share and on terms no less advantageous to the Company's shareholders than the form of the proposed merger agreement attached to the NDA, and the Company's board of directors failed to approve such proposal within three business days thereafter, the standstill provision would terminate.
Shortly thereafter, NCO began to furnish to OEP and its financing sources and their respective accounting and legal advisors certain non-public business and financial information regarding NCO to enable OEP and its financing sources to conduct their necessary confirmatory due diligence.The legal advisors to the special committee, NCO, OEP and Mr. Barrist continued to finalize the terms of the merger agreement and related documentation.
