"Our costs were significant in 2011 as we completed a large number of acquisitions and had material initial public company costs; however, we started to institute cost initiatives in the latter part of 2011 that ultimately led to the implementation of over $10 million in cost reductions during 2012, and we are looking to achieve corresponding efficiencies during the current year. We remain dedicated to serving our customers nationwide on a day-to-day basis with our comprehensive core chemical program as well as our complementary hygiene and sanitation services."
