In our approach to creating shareholder value, we take the long-term view in considering how to deploy capital to create future earnings growth. Over the years, our strong balance sheet has afforded us the financial strength and flexibility to make significant reinvestments in our fleet. We accomplish this through excellent operational performance, opportune investments during industry cycles, and a disciplined approach to making acquisitions. We believe we have made wise investments not only in our fleet, but also in talented people and an exceptional culture of training and safety that permeates our company.
