Robert Workman, President and CEO of NOW Inc., added, “I couldn’t be more excited about the results our organization produced in the second quarter. Product margin expansion fueled sequential revenue growth, in what is generally a seasonally softer quarter due to Canadian break-up. This, coupled with our continued focus on efficiencies, drove incrementals of 100% sequentially, as EBITDA excluding other costs grew $13 million, matching revenue growth.”
