Net income in the second quarter of 2009 included approximately $0.5 million of other income relating to the receipt of the final milestone payment under the Technology Transfer and Services agreement with Sunfilm. The first quarter of 2009 included a $2.4 million reversal of an accrued, long term reserve resulting from the final payment of the Company’s obligation under a settlement agreement.
