Effective January 1, 2010, we adopted the new guidance to Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 810, Consolidations, which resulted in our conclusion that, under the FASB s guidance, we are no longer the primary beneficiary and, effective January 1, 2010, we prospectively adopted the guidance resulting in a deconsolidation of the financial results of Front Range. Upon deconsolidation, on January 1, 2010, we removed $62.6 million of assets and $12.7 million of liabilities from our consolidated balance sheet and recorded a cumulative debit adjustment to retained earnings of $1.8 million. The periods presented in this report prior to the effective date of the deconsolidation continue to include related balances associated with Front Range. Effective January 1, 2010, we account for our investment in Front Range under the equity method, with equity earnings recorded in other income (expense) in the consolidated statements of operations.
