On a per-share basis, the primary driver contributing to the $0.02 increase during the fourth quarter of 2012 versus 2011 was an approximate $0.05 decrease in interest expense primarily due to the maturity of $500 million of 11.875 percent senior notes in early July 2012 and a lower interest rate on the refinanced debt that was underlying the Equity Units. This was partially offset by an estimated $0.03 decrease in margin primarily driven by increased fuel and purchased power expense at KCP&L Missouri where there is no fuel recovery mechanism.
