programs and weather conditions. These factors may cause our comparable same-store sales results to differ materially from prior periods and from our expectations. Our comparable same-store sales results for the twelve months ended June 30, 2012 declined 3.1 percent compared to the twelve months ended June 30, 2011. During fiscal year 2012, we impaired $67.7 and $78.4 million of goodwill associated with our Regis salon concept and Hair Restoration Centers reporting units, respectively. We impaired $74.1 million of goodwill associated with our Promenade salon concept during fiscal year 2011 and $35.3 million of goodwill associated with our Regis salon concept during fiscal year 2010. We also impaired $41.7 million of goodwill associated with our salon concepts in the United Kingdom during fiscal year 2009. If negative same-store sales continue and we are unable to offset the impact with operational savings, our financial results may be further affected. We may be required to take additional impairment charges and to impair certain long-lived assets and goodwill and such impairments could be material to our consolidated balance sheet and results of operations. The concept that has the highest likelihood of impairment is Promenade. As previously disclosed, the Company has agreed to sell the Hair Restoration Centers reporting unit in the first half of fiscal year 2013; however, until this reporting unit is sold it is reasonably likely there could be impairment of goodwill in future periods.

During fiscal year 2012, we recorded an impairment of $19.4 million related to our investment in EEG. During fiscal year 2011, we recorded an impairment of $9.2 million related to our investment in MY Style. During fiscal year 2009, we recorded impairments of $25.7 million and $7.8 million ($4.8 million net of tax) related to our investment in Provalliance and investment in and loans to Intelligent Nutrients, LLC, respectively. Due to economic and other factors, we may be required to take additional impairment charges related to our investments and such impairments could be material to our consolidated balance sheet and results of operations. In addition, our joint venture partners may be required to take impairment charges related to long-lived assets and goodwill, and our share of such impairment charges could be material to our consolidated balance sheet and results of operations. Specific to EEG, the for-profit post secondary educational market has experienced further and substantial declines in late July and August of 2012. Should this continue or not reverse, an additional impairment would be more likely than not during fiscal year 2013. For example, during fiscal year 2012 we recorded $8.7 million for our share of an intangible asset impairment recorded by EEG. Our share of our investment's goodwill balances as of June 30, 2012 is approximately $95 million. Upon completion of the sale of Provalliance our share of our investment's goodwill balances will decrease to approximately $16 million.

The loss in affiliated companies, net of taxes for the year ended June 30, 2012 was primarily due to the impairment losses of $17.2 and $19.4 million recorded on our investments in Provalliance and EEG, respectively. On April 9, 2012, the Company entered into the Agreement to sell the Company's 46.7 percent equity interest in Provalliance to the Provost Family for a purchase price of €80 million. In conjunction, the Company recorded a $37.4 million other than temporary impairment charge on its investment in Provalliance and $20.2 million reduction in the fair value of the Equity Put, resulting in a net impairment charge of $17.2 million. The Company recorded a $19.4 million other than temporary impairment charge for the excess of the carrying value of its investment in EEG over the fair value. The Company also recorded its $8.7 million share of an intangible asset impairment recorded directly by EEG. These impairments recorded during fiscal year 2012 were partially offset by our share of earnings of $9.7, $4.7 and $0.8 million recorded for our investments in Provalliance, EEG and Hair Club for Men, Ltd., respectively. See Note 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for further discussion of each respective affiliated company.

Equity in income of affiliated companies, net of taxes for the year ended June 30, 2011 was due to equity in income of $7.8, $5.5 and $0.6 million recorded for our investments in Provalliance, EEG and Hair Club for Men, Ltd., respectively. In addition, the Company recorded a $9.0 million impairment loss related to the Company's investment in MY Style. The impairment charge was based on the decline in equity value of MY Style as a result of changes in projected revenue growth after the natural disasters that occurred in Japan during March 2011. The Company also recorded a $2.4 million net gain related to the settlement of a portion of the Company's equity put liability and additional ownership of the Frank Provost Group in Provalliance.

During the twelve months ended June 30, 2010, equity increased primarily as a result of the issuance of the $163.6 million in common stock, the $24.7 million ($15.2 million net of tax) equity component of the convertible debt, stock based compensation of $9.3 million and the $42.7 million of earnings during fiscal year 2010. Partially offsetting the increase was a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $35.3 million related to our Regis salon concept, $9.1 million of dividends, $8.2 million in equity issuance costs and $5.4 million of foreign currency translation adjustments.
