"We are pleased to report stable net earnings and EBITDA, as well as increased cash available for distribution to begin 2010, despite the negative impact of the weakening U.S. dollar on our U.S. operations and the continuing negative impact of the economy combined with extremely mild and dry winter weather in many of our northern markets during the quarter," said Brock Bulbuck, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Boyd Group. "As a result of our operational efficiencies and cash flow strength, we have announced a further 4.8% increase in our monthly distributions, which represents the tenth consecutive quarterly increase."
"In addition to posting good results in a challenging market environment in the first quarter, we are also pleased with our progress in advancing both our operational and growth initiatives. In May 2010 we opened a new start-up facility in Georgia and acquired the assets and business of a collision repair facility in Oklahoma. We believe that, despite current market challenges, we are well positioned to benefit from long-term opportunities in our highly fragmented industry through consolidation and economies of scale," added Mr. Bulbuck.
