Third Quarter Results:Textainer’s financial results benefited from a 11.7 percent increase in the average size of the owned container fleet in the third quarter of 2013, compared to the year ago quarter, offset by incremental increases in depreciation expense and direct container expense due to the larger owned fleet and lower utilization. Depreciation expense and impairment of containers also included a $4.7 million charge in the third quarter of 2013 for containers that were considered likely to be economically unrecoverable from lessees in default. The third quarter also included $4.3 million of bad debt expense primarily related to a previously identified customer that filed for bankruptcy. We have been successfully recovering the containers that were on-lease with this customer.
