Change in Accounting for Convertible Debt Securities
Under a soon to be released Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Staff Position, convertible debt securities that may be settled in cash, including partial cash settlement, would be separated into debt and equity components. Interest expense will be recorded based upon the market rate at the date of issuance. This change in methodology, which will become effective for us as of the beginning of 2009, will be applied retrospectively to previously issued convertible debt instruments as well as to new instruments. The adoption of this new accounting rule is estimated to increase our 2008 and 2007 non-cash interest expense by approximately $13 million, resulting in a reduction of our diluted earning per share by approximately $0.13 in 2008 and $0.12 in 2007.
