* Presentation of adjusted results per diluted share includes the effects of convertible debt, if dilutive.

(a) Fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 results include a debt extinguishment charge of $37.0 after-tax, or $(0.29) per share, for the full redemption of the $350, 9.375% Senior Notes due 2019.

(b) During the third quarter of 2017, the Company performed an interim goodwill impairment analysis, as required by accounting standards, for our Cast Products business and determined that all goodwill assigned to this business unit was impaired. As a result, the Company recorded a $114.4 pre-tax non-cash goodwill impairment charge ($113.6 after-tax), or $(1.05) per share.

(c) For the three months ended December 31, 2016, $28.6 of pre-tax restructuring charges ($18.6 after-tax at a standard 35% tax rate), or $(0.17) per share, including $13.0 for additional HPMC segment titanium operations closure-related actions at the Rowley, UT, Frackville, PA and Albany, OR titanium operations, and $15.6 for FRP closure-related costs at the Midland and Bagdad, PA facilities and for additional FRP severance charges for salaried workforce reductions. These restructuring charges, which are excluded from business segment results, include contractual obligations, closure costs, severance and supplemental unemployment benefits. FRP restructuring costs also include $3.4 of special termination benefits for pension and other postretirement benefit plans.

In addition to the amounts for the three months ended December 31, 2016 above, the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 includes $471.3 of pre-tax asset impairment charges ($310.3 after-tax), or $(2.89) per share, and $28.6 of pre-tax shutdown, idling and employee benefit costs ($18.8 after-tax), or $(0.18) per share for the Rowley, UT facility, which are excluded from HPMC segment results. The remaining $7.1 after-tax, or $(0.06) per share, includes additional charges for severance actions.

(d) During the third quarter of 2016, the Company indefinitely idled its titanium sponge production facility in Rowley, UT. These amounts represent the above-market production costs and other operating expenses for this facility for the period indicated, net of expected ongoing carrying costs, and have been adjusted out of the Company's GAAP amounts to provide Company results that are more representative of the future, which exclude these costs.

(e) For the first six months of fiscal year 2016, the Company incurred costs associated with the work stoppage and return-to-work of USW-represented employees including reduced operating efficiencies, out-of-phase raw material costs, and provisions of the new labor agreements.

(f) Amounts for the three months and fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 include $4.1 of tax benefits, or $0.03 per share, from the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act legislation. Amounts for the three months ended December 31, 2016 include $32.4, or $0.30 per share, of above-normal income tax benefits compared to those that would apply at a standard 35% tax rate, primarily related to income tax valuation allowance changes. Amounts for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 include $141.3 or $(1.31) per share, of below-normal income tax benefits on the $734.0 pretax loss due primarily to valuation allowances recorded on U.S. federal deferred tax assets.
