Overview

Forbes' president and chief executive officer, John Crisp, commented, "Our third quarter results reflect the highly competitive market in which we are operating. Our previous comments regarding the second half of the year were supported by anticipated activity levels of our customers. However, the intensely competitive and oversupplied market adversely impacted pricing and subsequently utilization of our trucking and rental services.

"Our Well Servicing segment results improved over the previous quarter, and we believe that if the market remains healthy, utilization for this business should continue to trend upward."
