“On an operational basis, for the quarter, volumes declined year-over-year. However, after bottoming out in April, volumes have steadily improved through the quarter with the rate of improvement slowing since late June. I would like to say the worst is behind us, but this virus and the spread thereof is too unpredictable. To that end, when we started to feel the impact of the economic slowdown and subsequent decline in our volumes, we took immediate and swift action to build liquidity which allowed us to improve our cash position and end the quarter to just over $300m in liquidity,” said Darren Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer.
