James A. Wilhelm, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I'm pleased with a strong first quarter in which our results exceeded our internal expectations. Even though sequential gross profit was down, consistent with the fact that the first calendar quarter is traditionally the weakest of the year, we achieved a significant sequential reduction in expenses, driven primarily by integration synergies, and our reported first quarter EBITDA virtually doubled as compared to last year. We continue to expect to realize additional synergies not originally anticipated when we announced the merger. We're making rapid progress with the Central Parking integration and remain on track with our internal timeline. Throughout the next few quarters, the collaboration between our teams will focus on identifying new growth opportunities while further improving our operational efficiency."
