Income tax expense was less than $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to a benefit of $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. In computing its income tax provision, the Company estimates its effective income tax rate for the full year and applies that rate to income earned through the reporting period.

Management assesses the available positive and negative evidence to estimate if sufficient future taxable income will be generated to use the existing deferred tax assets. A significant piece of objective negative evidence evaluated was the cumulative loss incurred over the three-year period ended March 31, 2013. After adjusting the historical losses for non-recurring items, including the goodwill impairment, legal costs pertaining to events related to the “Concerned Stockholder Group” (as described in our 2012 Form 10-K) and severance agreements, sufficient earnings history exists to support the realization of the deferred tax assets. This evidenced ability to generate sufficient taxable income is the basis for the Company’s assessment that the deferred tax assets are more likely than not to be realized.
