Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $(3.4) million or $(0.69) per share compared to a net loss of $(10.0) million or $(2.07) per share in 2011. Net loss for our 2012 fourth quarter was $(15,000) or $(0.00) per diluted share compared to a net loss of $(689,000) or $(0.14) per share for the same period in 2011. We recorded non-cash goodwill impairment charges in the second quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the goodwill impairment charge, restructuring and intangible asset amortization, all net of tax, net income for the 2012 year was $890,000 or $0.18 per share and net income for the fourth quarter was $155,000 or $0.03 per share. Gross margins on product sales in the fourth quarter of 2012 were negatively impacted by an unfavorable mix of third party content and higher than average adjustments to inventory and warranty reserves. Our effective income tax rate for 2012 was impacted by a non-deductible portion of the goodwill impairment charge and our tax credit status in multiple jurisdictions.
