Paul Reilly, Chairman, President and CEO, stated, "In the third quarter we saw a definite increase in volumes of work. Our Commercial Segment had its best third quarter in sales and EBITDA since 2001. Our Resale Segment increased its market share in the office products channel. Our Strategic Sales Team continues to create numerous new opportunities for sales growth. The acquisitions we completed in the Seattle and San Francisco markets will be good catalysts for growth in those vibrant markets."
"The results of the first three quarters of 2004", continued Mr. Reilly, "are in line with the lower end of the guidance we gave for the full year 2004, and given our expectations for the next quarter, we expect to remain at the low end of the full year EBITDA guidance of $135 million to $142 million."
