Income Statement Presentation Format as a Result of United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) Related to Discontinued Operations

As noted in its 2009 annual report on Form 10-K, the Company is applying the discontinued operations provisions of GAAP to all service contracts that expire subsequent to January 1, 2002. In accordance with GAAP, the results of operations of contracts that expire, less applicable income taxes are classified on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations separately from continuing operations. The presentation prescribed for discontinued operations requires the collapsing of healthcare revenues and expenses, as well as other specifically identifiable costs, into the income or loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes. Items such as indirect selling, general and administrative expenses or interest expense cannot be allocated to expired contracts. The GAAP accounting presentation as it relates to discontinued operations and the Company’s expired contracts has no impact on net income, earnings per share, total cash flows or stockholders’ equity.

The following information was filed by America Service Group Inc De on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 as an 8K 2.02 statement, which is an earnings press release pertaining to results of operations and financial condition.
