During the second half of fiscal 2009, we experienced a sudden decrease in sales when compared to the second half of fiscal 2008. The sudden deterioration in economic conditions at that time affected the liquidity of some of our customers and their ability to pay outstanding past due balances, which resulted in our decision to record additional bad debt expense during the second half of fiscal 2009 and in the full fiscal 2009 year. Additionally, during fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2009 we determined a portion of our receivables to be uncollectible and wrote them off against our provision for bad debts.
