  • Net income improved to $1.03 million for the quarter representing a 393% increase compared to the third quarter of 2010;
  • Net income for the first nine months of 2011 improved to $3.64 million, which represents a 378% increase over the first nine months of 2010;
  • Earnings per fully diluted share increased to $0.06, compared with $0.02 per fully diluted share in the third quarter of 2010;
  • Earnings per fully diluted share for the first nine months of the year was $0.25 compared to $0.06 per fully diluted share in the first nine months of 2010;
  • Overall quarterly sales volumes increased 36% compared to Q3 2010, while volumes for the first nine months of 2011 increased 21% relative to the same period last year.

Mr. Cowart continued, “The third quarter of this year, like the first and second quarters of 2011, illustrated the improvements we’ve made in virtually every area of our business compared to last year. As we continue to aggregate and process greater volumes of product we improve our ability to drive revenue as we strengthen our position within the used oil market.”
