On July 20, 2010, the Company terminated its DB Plan. The termination resulted in the Company recognizing a one-time non-cash expense of $518,296, offset by a $179,641 tax benefit associated with recognizing unamortized actuarial losses. In addition, the Company provided for a cash contribution of $337,378, offset by a $116,900 tax benefit, in order to fully fund the DB Plan. The recognition of the non-cash and cash contributions resulted in a before-tax charge of $847,744, and an after-tax charge of $559,133 ($0.11 and $0.12 per share for the six- and three-month periods ended June 30, 2010, respectively).
