There is a $64M charge for this program on the
income statement for 4Q99; excluding this charge from the numbers would bump net margins to 7.7%. This results in a total RM score of 44, which is more
along the lines of what I expected.

I haven't looked at this statement, but if the charge is a one-time event, I personally would exclude it from the spreadsheet.
