Our business execution remains unaffected by these efforts as demonstrated by continued delivery of excellent safety and fleet uptime.
Although the market continues to be challenging, continued operational execution and strong customer relationships has enabled us to re-contract a number of units during the quarter. With a young versatile fleet and upon completion of our restructuring, we will be well placed to capitalize when the market recovers."
