Mr. Janik noted, "We're encouraged with positive market indicators such as the ongoing improvement in truck sales and other non-snowfall indicators that drive our business. While it won't be an immediate return to normal after a very challenging 2012, we are seeing stable market conditions that are showing signs of improvement. We expect the 2013 pre-season period to be slightly lighter when compared to last year, but with normal snowfall we expect the fourth quarter of 2013 to show significant improvement over last year's results. Looking ahead, we have a market leading position, a new line-up of products and a strong financial position, which we believe combine to position us well for the future."
