Excluding these items, loss from continuing operations was $(0.28) per share (diluted). The financial results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, include a $169 million increase in the Company’s allowance for doubtful accounts on the December 31, 2015 consolidated balance sheet and a corresponding $169 million increase to the provision for bad debts related to a change in estimate recorded during the three months ended December 31, 2015.
