System Sales

Redishred’s management team continued to focus its efforts through its franchisees and its corporate locations on (1) building recurring service revenues, (2) maximizing route density and logistical efficiencies and (3) implementing dedicated hard drive destruction trucks/equipment throughout the system. The strong service system sales results are driven by Redishred’s sales and marketing programs that are aimed at educating clients on the legislative requirements to destroy confidential information using a secure on-site solution. Additionally, an increasing number of clients are requiring their facilities to recycle all products, including office paper and, by using our service, clients are assured that documents are securely destroyed and the materials are recycled. Proshred also offers hard drive destruction services in almost all of its locations, and has been deploying high speed on-site hard drive destruction trucks. Currently five franchised locations have deployed high-speed on-site hard drive destruction trucks.

These factors led to 19% growth in scheduled and unscheduled sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 over the same quarter in 2012.

Recycling system sales decreased by 1% for the three months ended December 31, 2013 in comparison to the same period in 2012 as a result of the decline in the price of paper. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the PROSHRED(R) system shred and recycled 25,000 tons of paper, which equates to 377,000 trees saved.

Corporate Operations

During the year ended December 31, 2013, Redishred directly operated five shredding locations in Syracuse, NY, Albany, NY, Milwaukee, WI, New York City, NY and Charlotte, NC. The Miami business is jointly operated by Redishred and the Company’s Tampa Bay, FL franchisee location. The Company earned rental revenue from the Miami business and is included below.

On July 31, 2013, the Company acquired the Charlotte franchise. The five month results of the Charlotte business are included in the three and twelve month results of the corporate operations. During the three months ended December 31, 2013, the corporate location revenues grew by 52% over the same comparative prior year period.

Management’s Comments on the Fourth Quarter of 2013

Jeffrey Hasham, the Company’s CEO, had the following comments on the fourth quarter results, “We continue to be pleased with the performance of the Proshred system as our franchisees continue to see strong double digit growth, as they continue to invest in new equipment and human resources. Simultaneously we have continued to award new franchises to very high caliber individuals who have both achieved a solid start in San Francisco and Seattle. Concurrently, our corporate locations have performed well this year. The investments in new trucks and people made last year have started to pay off for the Company. The Company’s plan is to continue to invest in new trucks and sales resources to further drive results in 2014. I would like to thank our franchisees and employees for their hard work and our shareholders for their continued support of our Company.”

Community and Social Commitment

Our locations under the PROSHRED(R) banner conducted 126 community shredding events in 2013 as well as 19 community shredding events for Earth Day. These events provide an opportunity for our clients, clients’ employees, local businesses and local residents to ensure their personal and confidential materials are securely destroyed. In addition to helping to reduce identity theft, several of these events allow for donations to various not-for-profit organizations. PROSHRED(R) is also proud that 100% of the shredded material is recycled, as our continued goal is to foster the use of fewer trees in the production of all paper products. Future community shredding event locations can be found at our website, www.proshred.com.

On June 1, 2014, PROSHRED(R) will be holding a Shred for Cancer event at most of its locations, raising money for the American Institute for Cancer Research (“AICR”). It is our goal as a Company to support the AICR in their endeavor to conduct research to prevent and possibly cure this disease.
