FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

The Company revises its previous 2012 full-year earnings guidance range of $2.02 to $2.12 to an updated range of $1.70 to $1.85 per diluted share.

For the full-year 2012, the Company expects approximately 4% to 6% growth in rental operations revenues over 2011 and gross profit from sales to be approximately 10% to 15% lower than 2011. Rental equipment depreciation expense is expected to increase to between $65 and $66 million, driven by rental fleet growth. Selling and administrative costs are expected to increase to between $84 and $86 million to support business growth, and continued investment in Adler Tanks and our portable storage initiative. Full year interest expense is forecasted to be approximately $9 million. The Company expects the 2012 effective tax rate to be 39.2% and the diluted share count to be approximately 25.2 million shares. These forward-looking statements reflect McGrath RentCorp’s expectations as of July 31, 2012. Actual 2012 full-year earnings per share results may be materially different and affected by many factors, including those factors outlined in the “forward-looking statements” paragraph at the end of this press release.
