Inc. said, “We are extremely pleased with our quarter-to-quarter
growth. With a 67 per cent increase in revenue for the three months
and 53 per cent increase in revenue for the six months in our core
leasing business, the second quarter and six months were significant
accomplishments for Natural Gas Services Group. As the second quarter
financial results show, our core leasing business remains quite
profitable. We have been able to do this by delivering a high-value
product to the small to mid-sized compressor market that meets their
critical needs. Historically, our equipment utilization rate remains
around 90 per cent and our operating margins are well above the
industry norms. As we move into our third quarter we will continue
with our strategic initiatives. While the economy continues to firm
up, our goal is to continue to meet the market demand for our products.”
