McGrath RentCorp Announces Results For Third Quarter 2012

Looking forward, we are keenly focused on leveraging the significant opportunities that Adler Tank Rentals provides us in building a much larger and more profitable tank and box rental business. Although third quarter utilization levels were lower than we would like to see them, there is no reservation in my outlook that we are in the very early innings of a very successful franchise. Our growth opportunities are numerous and we will need many more rental assets over time in achieving our goals.

As for other strategic direction comments, our portable storage business continued to make good progress during the quarter in building its customer following, increasing booking levels and growing rental revenues. We are beginning to realize critical mass in our installed base of customers in some of the markets in which we operate. We still have ample room to grow rental revenues within our current cost structure. At the same time, we are actively investigating additional geographies for expansion. I’m very pleased with what we have accomplished in growing our portable storage business starting in 2008, and in an economy that has had an average annual real GDP growth rate of less than one-half of one-percent over this time frame. As the economy continues to improve, and with the infrastructure and quality team we are continuing to build, our portable storage business should benefit very favorably. We believe that we have an excellent opportunity to become a meaningful player in the portable storage rental industry. As mentioned this past quarter, we plan to exit the environmental test equipment business. We have had interest from multiple parties in acquiring the assets of the business and are presently managing this process. We’ve also recently added a full-time corporate development associate to our team in order to provide greater bandwidth in our review of a continuum of strategic growth opportunities.”
