During the first two quarters of 2012, the Company recorded a net credit of $0.2 million in restructuring and other special charges. The restructuring charges included $6.2 million in severance and other personnel costs along with $1.3 million in facility-related costs primarily associated with the ongoing integration of the Clearstone Central Laboratories (“Clearstone”) acquisition and the termination of an executive vice-president. These charges were offset by the reversal of previously established restructuring reserves of $4.8 million in unused severance and $2.9 million in unused facility-related costs. The Company recorded $0.9 million in acquisition fees and expenses relating to its acquisition of MEDTOX. As part of the Clearstone integration, the Company recorded a $6.9 million loss on the disposal of one of its European subsidiaries. In addition, in conjunction with the liquidation of one of its joint ventures, the Company recorded a one-time increase of $2.9 million in equity method income.For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the after tax impact of these combined net charges decreased net earnings by $15.1 million and diluted earnings per share by $0.15 ($15.1 million divided by 98.1 million shares).
