“Our solid operating performance in the fourth quarter concludes a year of consistent growth in our storage rental business which more than offset moderate declines in core services,” said William Meaney, Iron Mountain’s president and chief executive officer. “Strong constant dollar storage rental growth of 5% in the fourth quarter reflects healthy increases of more than 12% in our international business, driven by robust organic growth and acquisitions, and more than 2% in our North American business.
“Looking forward, we are well positioned to deliver against our financial objectives in 2013 and will continue to pursue strategies to sustain the durability of our storage rental business. We have opportunities to invest in fast-growing emerging markets through an approach that is consistent with our focus on attractive returns. In developed markets, we are tapping into the unvended segment and are beginning to see results from the refocusing of our sales and account management teams into vertical market segments. We will continue to apply a strict capital allocation approach to our business,” Mr. Meaney added.
