    Change in Greek corporate income tax rate post acquisition

    On January 11, 2013 the government of Greece enacted legislation increasing the corporate income tax rate from 20% to 26%, effective January 1, 2013. The Company calculated its deferred tax liability with respect to its Greek assets including the assets acquired as part of the EGU acquisition based on the 20% Greek income tax rate (the legislated tax rate at the acquisition date). As required by IAS 12, "Income Taxes", when an income tax rate changes, the deferred tax liability must be adjusted to reflect the change in the income tax rate. The adjustment is required to be charged to deferred income tax expense. The Company anticipates that the increase in the Greek income tax rate from 20% to 26% will increase the deferred tax liability and the deferred tax expense by approximately $130.0 million or approximately $0.18 per share in the first quarter of 2013.
