 Robert N. Tidball, PLM International president and chief executive officer, said, "Our quarter to quarter profitability continues to gradually increase, reaffirming the actions we have announced to streamline the company. The third quarter results were affected by two offsetting adjustments. Continuing adverse changes in market conditions caused us to reduce the carrying value of certain of our equipment by approximately $900,000, which was offset by a favorable tax adjustment of approximately $600,000. During the third quarter, we continued to apply the sales proceeds from less desirable assets to the reduction of our senior debt, which has been reduced by more than $50 million in the last 16 months. We believe these steps continue to strengthen our financial position, enabling us to turn our focus toward capitalizing on future growth opportunities."
