Commentary

Julio Quintana, TESCO’s Chief Executive Officer, commented “We are very pleased with our Q4 and full year 2008 results. While we expect 2009 to be a challenging economic time, we are confident that our solid financial position and focus on operating efficiencies will enable TESCO to endure an economic downturn and prepare for the future. While our Q4 2008 margins were impacted by the recent adverse market conditions, our overall financial performance remained strong; 2008 was a record year for us in terms of revenues, operating income and operating cash flows. We increased our revenues in all three of our operating segments and reduced our outstanding debt by over $31 million.
