In Q2 FY2013, Geoconstruction acquired the remaining 50% of Diberil. The results of Diberil are reported on a consolidated basis from the date of acquisition, rather than on an equity basis as had been done previously. In accordance with accounting guidance in moving Diberil to a fully consolidated basis, we remeasured the previously held 50% non-controlling interest in Diberil to fair value and recognized a non-cash loss of $7.7 million during the second quarter of FY2013.
Including its consolidated and equity basis earnings, Diberil contributed a pretax loss of $0.8 million and pretax income of $8.1 million for Q4 FY2013 and FY2013, compared to pretax income of $1.2 million and $3.3 million for last year. Results at Diberil for the year have improved over last year due to increased activity levels and good performance, especially on a river crossing project in the Amazon. Delays experienced on various projects contributed to the loss in Q4 FY2013.
