Celadon Trucking Services, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Celadon Group, Inc.

"We are excited with the Teton acquisition, as it fits well within the strategy we have executed during similar acquisitions over the last few years. As with previous acquisitions, our goals are to continue to broaden our customer base with quality customers, add density in our primary traffic lanes, and gain experienced drivers," stated Paul Will, President and COO. "Based on our evaluation of the business, we believe Teton had a solid, core group of quality customers and drivers. We expect to integrate and optimize these customers and drivers within our operations promptly and further improve asset productivity. We believe we can enhance the service to Teton's former customers through an upgraded equipment fleet, excellent technology, more available assets for dispatch, and an outstanding safety record. We expect the acquired operations to be accretive beginning in the June 2012 quarter."
