“We have low leverage on our balance sheet, strong free cash flow, and continue our disciplined search for acquisition candidates that bring critical mass to our current platform with respect to geography, purchasing power, and complementary service offerings. We believe we remain well positioned to continue to benefit from a favorable market environment given the healthy economy and look forward to continuing to build on the success of this most recent quarter."
