    .. During the three months ended March 31, 2015, we recorded an allowance of approximately $1.2 million for slow-moving inventory related to our waste heat recovery generators. In addition, we shipped approximately $0.7 million of product to BPC during the three months ended March 31, 2015. Given the uncertainty as to the collectability of the sale, the revenue for this shipment was not recognized. Both transactions were included in cost of goods sold for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

    During the three months ended March 31, 2015, we recorded approximately $7.1 million with respect to the accounts receivable allowance from BPC. We determined that the collectability of this accounts receivable balance was not reasonably assured based on BPC's recent payment history and because the impact of the recent steep decline of the Russian ruble could continue to negatively impact its ability to pay its outstanding accounts receivable balance. During the three months ended September 30, 2014, we recorded approximately $2.6 million with respect to the accounts receivable balance from EMI. We determined that the collectability of this accounts receivable balance was not reasonably assured based on EMI's payment history. Both transactions were included in SG&A for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, respectively. -Page 47

    ..During the three months ended March 31, 2015, we shipped approximately $0.7 million of product to BPC. Given the uncertainty as to the collectability of the sale, revenue recognition on this shipment was deferred. However, as we do not have title to the product or rights to receive the product back in the event we are not paid, such amounts were expensed through cost of goods sold for Fiscal 2015. -Page 43- BPC quit paying bills
