"These are just some of the messages that I am glad to talk about. Our share price today is certainly not indicative of our performance to date and nor the expectations we have for the new fiscal year. This is a simple but solid business and recession resistant as we have seen over the years. Just four months ago we were at a 52 week high on the TSX and since that time we have reduced debt by $63 million and improved our operations for the new year. We have filed with regulators to allow us to acquire additional shares by amending our normal course issuer bid to increase the amount of common shares that can be repurchased. This allows us to take advantage of an opportunity to buy back shares at a time when we believe that the trading price of our shares is significantly below the intrinsic value based on the fundamentals of our business. We have never been more confident in our business and the outstanding service our 14,000 employees provide to over 1.2 million students who ride our vehicles each school day. These are exciting times for our company."Countdown to the Closing Bell with Liz Claman airs weekdays from 3pm to 4pm ET on Fox Business Network.
