Fourth-Quarter Financial Performance

- On a pro forma basis, net income was $9.2 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011, which reflects a pro forma effective tax rate of 40%. Pro forma net income excludes stock-based compensation of $0.5 million, amortization of $0.7 million of acquisition-related intangible assets, $0.4 million of reorganization costs, and net investment gains of $0.4 million.
