Stock-Based Compensation:  The Company accounts for stock-based compensation under the provisions of SFAS No. 123 (Revised 2004), “Share-Based Payment” (“SFAS No. 123R”).  SFAS No. 123R requires that all share-based payments to employees and non-employee directors, including grants of stock options, be recognized in the financial statements based on their fair values on the date of grant.  The Company elected to use the modified prospective application for the transition upon the adoption of SFAS No. 123R, which requires compensation expense to be recognized on options granted subsequent to the adoption date as well as on options granted prior to the adoption date for which the requisite service period had not been completed as of December 31, 2005.  The Company has also elected to treat option grants with graded vesting as a single award and accordingly recognizes the associated compensation expense ratably over the service period.
