(the “Company”), after assessing the poor performance of the Company’s common stock and the requirements under United States generally accepted accounting principles to reduce the Company’s book value to align with its market capitalization, determined to record an adjustment to the carrying values of the Company’s goodwill and intangible assets and to record a charge associated with the restructuring of its operations, reducing and consolidating warehouse space and the reduction of inventory by eliminating certain product lines.
