___________________________________________________
(1) The interest amount in the table above does not include interest expense associated with uncertain tax positions.
(2) Amounts represent those portions of rent expense that are reasonable approximations of interest costs.
(3) We have not issued preferred stock. Therefore, the ratios of earnings to combined fixed charges and preferred stock dividends are the same as the ratios presented above.
