  2. The arbitration between the company and the former CEO Matthew T. Detelich was settled on December 19, 2012. The settlement satisfied all remaining obligations to Mr. Detelich under his employment agreement and supplementary retirement plan. Mr. Detelich remains a participant in the company's standard defined benefit retirement plan.

The results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011, were adversely affected by expenses associated with payments to Mr. Detelich of $185,000 and $3,813,000, respectively.
  3. The results for the three months ended December 31, 2012, were adversely affected by an increase in LIFO reserve of $26,000. The results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 were favorably affected by a decrease in the LIFO reserve of $227,000.

  4. The results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, were favorably affected by the reduction of the valuation allowance against a portion of the company's net deferred tax assets of $880,000. No material valuation allowance was recorded in 2012.
  5. The results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, included a non-cash, pre-tax adjustment to Other Comprehensive Income of $12,221,000 which reduced shareholders' investment. The adjustment was caused by an increase in the pensions' underfunded status due to portfolio performance and certain actuarial assumptions.
