Effects of New Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2004, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued SFAS No. 123 (revised 2004) (SFAS No. 123R) Share-Based Payment, which is a revision of SFAS 123, Accounting For Stock-Based Compensation. SFAS 123R establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods and services. It also addresses transactions in which an entity incurs liabilities in exchange for goods and services that are based on the fair value of the entitys equity instruments or that may be settled by the issuance of those equity instruments. This statement focuses primarily on accounting for transactions in which an entity obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions. SFAS 123R is effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2006 and the Company expects to use the modified prospective application method. For periods prior to implementation, the Company has retained its accounting for stock based employee compensation under APB 25 and has only adopted the pro forma disclosure requirements of SFAS 123. The Company expects that the adoption of this statement will reduce the Companys reported net income and earnings per share. The effect of adopting this statement on the Companys historical consolidated statements of operations is reflected on a proforma basis in the Stock-Based Compensation section above.
