- Strong operating earnings during the quarter were more than offset by higher interest expense from the recent refinancing of the Company’s senior secured credit facilities that closed on May 30, 2012, as well as a normalized effective income tax rate. As a result, net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $25.5 million or $0.37 per share as compared to $37.4 million or $0.55 per share for the same period of 2011.

- As a result of the current major power outage activity, the Company is raising its sales growth guidance for full-year 2012 to the low-40% range over the prior year, which represents an increase from the low-30% growth rate previously expected in the October 1 st business update. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA for the full-year 2012 is now expected to increase in the mid-40% range over the prior year, which is an increase from the mid-30% growth rate previously expected.
