Subsequent to the filing of its earnings announcement, the Company identified historical errors relating to its tax treatment of deferred compensation obligations assumed as part of a 2003 acquisition. As a result, the Company has determined the need to reestablish book basis of goodwill related to the 2003 transaction in the amount of $5.4 million. Further, the Company has established a reserve for uncertain tax positions in the amount of $3 million, including accrued interest, as well as cumulative adjustments to current and deferred tax items of $6.6 million primarily related to periods prior to 2008. In conjunction with the revision described above, the Company has also revised its consolidated financial statements for previously disclosed immaterial out-of-period adjustments. The Company has revised its prior period consolidated financial statements by adjusting opening retained earnings as of January 1, 2010 in the amount of $7.5 million.

For a full discussion of these matters, you are directed to the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2011, which is being filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.
