  • Cost saving initiatives generated $36 million in annualized savings since August 2011, surpassing the initial goal of $20-$25 million
  • Reverse stock split in December afforded the opportunity to switch stock exchange listing to the NASDAQ Global Market in February 2013

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Financial Results

Larry C. Buckelew, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, explained, “Our solid operating results for 2012 are due to the hard work of our dedicated team members and the successful implementation of Project Phoenix, the cost savings plan that we introduced in August 2011. Our corporate culture is increasingly focused on continuously driving operational efficiency, and has generated $36 million in annualized savings since inception. I am pleased to report that these cost savings improvements and enhanced efficiency have translated into year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA growth.”
