Stocks in this article: PWAV

Summary of Significant Items Impacting the Third Quarter

During the third quarter of 2012, we incurred approximately $0.3 million of non-cash equity based compensation expense, as well as $1.5 million of non-cash debt interest accretion and debt discount amortization related to our outstanding convertible notes which is included in interest expense for the quarter. We also incurred a $0.5 million loss on early extinguishment of debt and $0.6 million reduction in the fair value of derivatives related to warrants issued in conjunction with our new senior term loan agreement, and $2.9 million of restructuring and impairment charges.

During the third quarter of 2011, we incurred approximately $1.8 million of non-cash equity based compensation expense, $0.1 million of restructuring and impairment charges, $2.1 million of non-cash debt interest accretion and debt discount amortization and a net loss on the repurchase of outstanding debt, which is all included in interest expense for the quarter.

The following is a brief summary of the significant items impacting the comparability of per share amounts for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and October 2, 2011. To calculate the per share impact of these significant items, an underlying effective tax rate of zero percent was used for both periods and the fully diluted shares outstanding for each respective period were used.
