Reconciliation of Segment Operating Earnings

Beginning in fiscal 2013, we are changing our definition of segment operating earnings to exclude non-operating pension costs. Non-operating pension costs consist of defined benefit plan interest cost, expected return on plan assets, amortization of actuarial gains and losses and the impacts of any plan curtailments or settlements. We will continue to include service cost and amortization of prior service cost in the business segment that incurred the expense.
