In the second quarter of 2012, revenue was $31.5-million, which was 9.2 per cent
higher than the $28.9-million generated in the comparable period in
2011. This year-over-year increase was due to a combination of the
acquisition of the plant in Montreal, the new volume from the Saskatoon
Health Region contract, organic growth from new volume and price
increases at existing customers across the remainder of the plants.
EBITDA increased from $4.9-million in the second quarter of 2011, to $6.4-million in the second quarter of
2012, from the addition of a new plant, organic growth from the company's
existing businesses and the addition of the Saskatoon Health Region.
"The second quarter of 2012 has been busy for us with the signing of a
new long-term contract with Alberta Health Services, and the planning
and commencement of a new plant in Edmonton. We also raised the common
share dividend and were extremely satisfied with our quarterly results.
With a strong presence in all of our markets, we produced record EBITDA
and earnings," said Linda McCurdy, president and chief executive
officer. "With a robust first half of the year and visibility into the
third quarter, we expect strong financial results to continue
throughout the second half of the year."
We seek Safe Harbor.
