Nick Matthews, President and CEO of Essex stated, “Demand for our hydraulic crawler cranes, tower cranes and heavy rough terrain cranes continued to show improvement both sequentially and year over year in the second quarter of 2015. The increased rental revenue generated from these assets, which make up the majority of the orderly liquidation value of our rental fleet, helped to offset the decrease in rental revenue generated from the large hydraulic attachments that were on rent last year.”

“We continue discussions with the lenders of the Essex Crane Revolving Credit Facility to remedy the previously disclosed events of default. We believe the best value to our shareholders and our lenders is to restructure the Essex Crane subsidiary to unlock the value of its operating model. The Company and the Board of Directors are in the process of engaging a financial advisor to assist the Company in connection with its current financial and operational performance and strategic planning.”

Mr. Matthews continued, “The assets that make up a significant portion of the value of our rental fleet remain active. However, we are cognizant of the concerns in the market related to oil prices that remain depressed. With the broad array of end markets that our assets serve, we have been able to continue to drive high levels of utilization in most of our key assets. While we have been encouraged by the current activity and look forward to the benefits of our recently implemented cost savings initiatives, we continue to see softness in our retail sales and our traditional crawler crane utilization levels, and we remain cautious on our outlook for the remainder of the year.”
