The net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the comparable prior year period was primarily driven by the following: (i) $5.7 million increase in non-cash retirement benefit expense; (ii) expenses of $5.5 million incurred in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 related to the proposed acquisition of United Technologies Corporation's Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne (the "Rocketdyne Business"); (iii) $5.2 million increase in interest expense primarily related to the financing of the proposed Rocketdyne Business acquisition; (iv) $2.6 million increase in the income tax provision; and (v) $2.3 million increase in stock-based compensation primarily due to increases in the fair value of the Company's stock appreciation rights. These factors were partially offset by higher sales generating additional operating profit.
