    Earnings Dating Back

    About some phrase in a news story:

    "The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company said on Wednesday that it expected to restate as much as $100 million in earnings dating back to 1998 because of a series of accounting and billing errors."

    Does "earnings dating back to 1998" mean 1) earnings received in 1998 alone, or 2) earnings received since 1998?
