President and CEO James Horvath commented, "We experienced an increase in activity as the weather improved which was reflected in an increase in performance. Our success this quarter was due primarily to the usage of lease operators, weather conditions and overall oilfield activity. Our geographical expansion is starting to affect our performance as the potential market is increasing and our cash flows are improving. Subsequent to the quarter end we have seen a noted improvement in revenue and our customer satisfaction is still extremely high."
