On March 12, 2014, Dresser-Rand Group announced its latest quarterly results of $32.8 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2013, which compares with net income of $80.2 million, or $1.05 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2012.

Under U.S. GAAP, the Company was required to record the impact of the previously disclosed draft Spanish regulation, which resulted in reduced operating income and diluted earnings per share by $62 million and $0.81, respectively, for the fourth quarter and full year 2013. As a result of this draft regulation being proposed, the Company has reduced 2013 operating income by (1) approximately $22 million for the proposed retroactive reduction of the tariffs and (2) approximately $40 million for asset impairments.
