Quality Distribution sees improved yoy performance in all segments in 2013

CEOGary Enzor commented: "Our Q3 proved to be a real challenge, with the highly unusual circumstance whereby all three of our segments reported lower than expected results. Based on what we see today, especially with the impact of Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast, our fourth quarter will be equally challenging. Despite these issues, we anticipate improved year-over-year performance in all of our segments in 2013. Given that we now have an excellent footprint in the energy space, our plans over the near-term are to optimize our existing and recently acquired operations, as well as generate free cash flow to reduce debt."
