For the three month period ended March 31, 2013, the Company recorded income tax expense of $266,000, a decrease of $11,000 from the three month period ended March 31, 2012. This decrease in income tax expense was primarily due to a decrease in pre-tax income of $30,000 between the respective quarterly periods.
