6. Income Taxes

In order to determine the quarterly provision for income taxes, the Company used an estimated annual effective tax rate, which is based on expected annual income and statutory tax rates in the various jurisdictions in which the Company operates. Certain significant or unusual items are separately recognized in the quarter during which they occur and can be a source of variability in the effective tax rates from quarter to quarter.

The Company recorded a provision for incomes taxes of $130 and $191 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. The Company recorded a benefit for income taxes of $836 and $1,517 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. The provision for income taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 primarily relates to income tax in certain foreign jurisdictions.

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company’s unrecognized tax benefits increased by $127. The Company does not anticipate its unrecognized tax benefits will change significantly over the next 12 months. There were no accrued interest and penalties associated with uncertain tax positions as of June 30, 2012.
