large-scale infrastructure to aid in our growth projections. I am excited to have found a company like
UTRS to purchase RKR, which displays similar principles of integrity, high-quality service, and
commitment to its employees. I believe we will see growth in our core business lines once we are folded
under the UTRS banner.”
