Net Income (Loss) during 2005 and 2004
The Companys net loss in 2005 was $2.3, or $0.02 per diluted share. In 2004, the Company reported net income of $238.4, or $2.18 per diluted share. There are several factors to which the difference is principally attributable. Negatively impacting the comparison was the absence in 2005 of the $201.4 gain recognized in 2004 on the sale of discontinued operations, discussed above, and the absence in 2005 of the $125.1 benefit recognized in 2004 related to the reversal of previously established tax valuation allowances, discussed above. In 2005, the Company also incurred a $32.6 income tax provision charge due to state tax law changes that became effective in 2005. Only partially offsetting those negative factors was the year-to-year reduction in the Companys non-cash charges, discussed above. In 2005, the total of the other postretirement benefit corridor charge, asset impairment charges and curtailment charge was $132.7. In 2004, there were no asset impairment or curtailment charges, but the pension and other postretirement benefit corridor charges totaled $330.8.
