HOSPIRA 10-Q 2005
Computation of Ratio of Earnings to Fixed Charges
(dollars in millions except ratios)
For purposes of computing this ratio, earnings consist of income from continuing operations before taxes, one-third of rents (deemed by Hospira to be representative of the interest factor inherent in rents), interest expense and interest capitalized, net of amortization. Fixed charges consist of one-third of rents, interest expense as reported in the Companys consolidated financial statements and interest capitalized.
