Financial report summary

  • Our business is cyclical in nature. Economic slowdowns and decreases in general economic activity have in the past caused weakness in our end-markets and had adverse effects on our revenues and operating results, and could do so again in the future.
  • Trends in oil and natural gas prices could adversely affect the level of exploration, development and production activity of certain of our customers and the demand for our services and products.
  • Increases in fuel costs or reduced supplies of fuel could harm our business.
  • We may not be able to refinance our indebtedness on favorable terms, or at all. Our inability to refinance our indebtedness could materially and adversely affect our liquidity and our ongoing results of operations.
  • We may be able to incur substantially more debt and take other actions that could diminish our ability to make payments on our indebtedness when due, which could further exacerbate the risks associated with our current level of indebtedness.
  • If we are unable to satisfy the financial covenant or comply with other covenants in certain of our debt agreements, our lenders could elect to terminate the agreements and require us to repay the outstanding borrowings, or we could face other substantial costs.
  • Restrictive covenants in certain of the agreements and instruments governing our indebtedness may adversely affect our financial and operational flexibility.
  • The amount of borrowings permitted under our ABL facility may fluctuate significantly, which may adversely affect our liquidity, results of operations and financial position.
  • We rely on available borrowings under the ABL facility and the accounts receivable securitization facility for cash to operate our business, which subjects us to market and counterparty risk, some of which is beyond our control.
  • If we are unable to obtain additional capital as required, we may be unable to fund the capital outlays required for the success of our business.
  • Our growth strategies may be unsuccessful if we are unable to identify and complete future acquisitions and successfully integrate acquired businesses or assets.
  • If we determine that our goodwill has become impaired, we may incur impairment charges, which would negatively impact our operating results.
  • Our operating results may fluctuate, which could affect the trading value of our securities.
  • Our common stock price has fluctuated significantly and may continue to do so in the future.
  • We cannot guarantee that we will repurchase our common stock pursuant to our share repurchase program or that our share repurchase program will enhance long-term stockholder value. Share repurchases could also increase the volatility of the price of our common stock and could diminish our cash reserves.
  • Our charter provisions, as well as other factors, may affect the likelihood of a takeover or change of control of the Company.
  • If we are unable to collect on contracts with customers, our operating results would be adversely affected.
  • Turnover of members of our management and our ability to attract and retain key personnel may adversely affect our ability to efficiently manage our business and execute our strategy.
  • Our operational and cost reduction strategies may not generate the improvements and efficiencies we expect.
  • We are dependent on our relationships with key suppliers to obtain equipment and other supplies for our business on acceptable terms.
  • Disruptions in our supply chain could result in adverse effects on our results of operations and financial performance.
  • Disruptions in our information technology systems or a compromise of security with respect to our systems could adversely affect our operating results by limiting our ability to effectively monitor and control our operations, adjust to changing market conditions, implement strategic initiatives or support our online ordering system.
  • Climate change, climate change regulations and greenhouse effects may materially adversely impact our operations and markets.
  • Our rental fleet is subject to residual value risk upon disposition, and may not sell at the prices or in the quantities we expect.
  • We have operations outside the United States, in Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. As a result, we may incur losses from the impact of foreign currency fluctuations and have higher costs than we otherwise would have due to the need to comply with foreign laws.
  • We have a holding company structure and depend in part on distributions from our subsidiaries to pay amounts due on our indebtedness. Certain provisions of law or contractual restrictions could limit distributions from our subsidiaries.
  • We are exposed to a variety of claims relating to our business, and our insurance may not fully cover them.
  • We are subject to numerous environmental and safety regulations. If we are required to incur compliance or remediation costs that are not currently anticipated, our liquidity and operating results could be materially and adversely affected.
  • We have operations throughout the United States, which exposes us to multiple state and local regulations, in addition to federal law and requirements as a government contractor. Changes in applicable law, regulations or requirements, or our material failure to comply with any of them, can increase our costs and have other negative impacts on our business.
  • Our collective bargaining agreements and our relationship with our union-represented employees could disrupt our ability to serve our customers, lead to higher labor costs or the payment of withdrawal liability.
