Adding to its future performance the company reported it had over $2 million of deferred revenues in the first half of the fiscal year due primarily to Superstorm Sandy which will be recorded in the third and fourth quarters of this fiscal year.

As normal course of business the Board of Directors approved its quarterly dividend paid monthly to shareholders of record through the end of the fiscal year. The company plans to pay its 100th consecutive monthly dividend in that period.

"We are pleased with the second quarter results which were an improvement over the prior year same quarter and in line with our internal expectations despite the storm," said Denis J Gallagher, Chairman and CEO. "The improvement reflects the continued momentum of the growth secured in the prior fiscal year as well as a disciplined focus on controls we put in place to reduce our fuel costs despite higher market prices year over year. As previously stated, we have secured an approximate 15 percent increase in annualized revenue for fiscal 2013."
