Tax Reform


On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1) (the “TCJA”) was signed into law.  Among other things, the TCJA reduced the U.S. corporate tax rate from 35% to approximately 21% beginning in 2018.  In addition, there are a number of other changes to the US corporate tax code included in TCJA.  The Company is still assessing the impact of these changes on its financial results and guidance at this time.  The Company’s previous guidance, furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with its current report on Form 8-K on November 7, 2017 and the guidance furnished in Exhibit 99.1 hereto (collectively, the “Company Guidance”) did not take into account or reflect the changes in law set forth in the TCJA and the Company is not updating the Company Guidance at this time.


However, based on a preliminary assessment of the TCJA, the Company believes that its noncurrent deferred tax asset of $24.6 million as of September 30, 2017 and income tax receivable of $1.6 million as of September 30, 2017 will be revalued in accordance with the lower expected U.S. corporate tax rate beginning in 2018, which the Company expects will lead to a non-cash asset write-down in the fourth quarter of 2017.  Additionally, the Company expects a lower tax rate in 2018 compared to its assumptions included in the Company Guidance of approximately 37% before any adjustments for excess tax benefits recognized from stock-based compensation.   The Company expects to provide a more detailed explanation of the impact related to the TCJA in conjunction with the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 and related disclosures.


The information furnished pursuant to Items 2.02 and 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any other filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
