In addition to the reclassification, there is an adjustment recorded on these redeemable non-controlling interest balances. As of the end of each reporting period, the carrying value of the redeemable non-controlling interest is adjusted to the calculated redemption value if that price is higher than the current carrying value. The purpose of the adjustment is to record the potential cash obligations we may have to the non-controlling interest shareholders.This quarter, redeemable non-controlling interest balances were marked up by $8.2 million. The adjustment is recorded to retained earnings and reduces net income to shareholders when calculating earnings per share. You can find the earnings per share calculation in Footnote 2 and additional information regarding our contingent obligations to the non-controlling shareholders in Footnote 8.
