The majority of the company's direct expenses are incurred in that same period. The Company markets rental units and fleet inventory available for sale on a continuous basis throughout the year, however sales of such units are generally strongest in the spring and early summer. As a result of ongoing interest, amortization and adjustments and selling, general and administrative expenses, the last two quarters of the fiscal year normally produce operating losses. Losses incurred in the last two quarters may exceed profits earned in the first two quarters of the fiscal year.
