The comparison to the fourth quarter reflects a 24% increase in net income. The first quarter 2010 reflects the first full quarter of the BGI acquisition, which closed on December 1, 2009. The first quarter 2010 EPS also reflects the full effect of the issuance of new shares in December 2009 associated with the acquisition of BGI.
