Bill Murdy, Comfort Systems USA’s Chairman and CEO, said, “Our underlying results of operations demonstrated solid profitability for the third quarter, and we also experienced same store revenue growth. We were required to take an impairment charge during the quarter, as we concluded that impairment indicators existed after a review of recent results, current conditions and updated forecasts at certain subsidiaries. This charge did not impact our cash flows, is not relevant to our financial covenants, and we believe it does not diminish our fundamental results which remain steady in the face of adverse market conditions.”
