Mr. Tusa noted, "While the transformation of our Company into a provider of comprehensive medical waste management services is well underway, there is much work left to be done. We have leveraged our Daniels Alliance and have successfully closed and created more opportunities in multiple markets which we believe will positively impact revenue for the calendar year 2013. We have added Berkley Nelson to the team as our new Senior Vice President of Sales who brings successful leadership not only in the complex sales arena but also the medical waste management business. As we close out fiscal 2013, our focus is on closing additional business and creating additional recurring streams of revenue as we successfully execute our business strategy."
