Electro Rent says 'cautiously positive' about remainder of fiscal year

“We remain cautiously positive about the remainder of the fiscal year, despite the complicated issues surrounding the current government ‘shutdown,’ sequestration, the national budget, and the impact that is having on our core customer sectors. In this environment, customers are continuing to respond very positively to the alternatives we offer, which allow them to deploy their capital in much more effective ways,” the company said.
