SELECTED QUARTERLY FINANCIAL INFORMATION (UNAUDITED)
The unaudited quarterly results for years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 were prepared in accordance with GAAP, and reflect all adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results. These adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. Quarterly income per share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the quarter. Because of changes in the number of shares outstanding during the quarters due to the exercise of stock options and issuance of common stock, the sum of quarterly earnings per share may not equal earnings per share for the year.
Deferred income tax expense (benefit) for the three months ended September 30, 2019 included a $4.8 million charge to increase the valuation allowances on US deferred tax assets and for the three months ended December 31, 2019 included $1.7 million benefit as a result of a decrease in valuation allowances on deferred tax assets.
As discussed further in Note 8, deferred income tax expense (benefit) for the three months ended September 30 and December 31, 2018 included $(66.6) million and $9.0 million, respectively, related to the recognition of deferred tax assets as well as adjustments to valuation allowances.
The entire disclosure for quarterly financial data. Includes, but is not limited to, tabular presentation of financial information for fiscal quarters, effect of year-end adjustments, and an explanation of matters or transactions that affect comparability of the information.
