Footnotes to Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations (Unaudited)
(a) In December 2010, Section 41 of the Internal Revenue Code, "Credit for Increasing Research Activities," was retroactively extended for two years to cover the period from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2011. As a result, we recognized an income tax credit for qualified research and development activities for the last ten months of fiscal 2010 in the first quarter of 2011. The tax credit, net of expenses, increased net income attributable to HEICO by approximately $.8 million, or $.02 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2011.
(b) All fiscal 2010 share and per share information has been adjusted retrospectively to reflect a 5-for-4 stock split effected in April 2010.
