Other Fourth Quarter Financial and Operational Highlights

Gross Profit and Operating Expenses:

Rental gross profit grew by 37.5 percent and associated gross margin improved 660 basis points, due primarily to increased revenue, the leveraging of our field service network, and the impact of the prior year receivable reserve adjustments outlined above. Capital gross profit grew by 11.7 percent, and gross margin was flat versus the prior year as improvement in product mix on capital margins was offset by unfavorable geographic mix and inflationary pressures.
