The Top Gun award recognizes rental store operators who receive the PEG Pinnacle Award for Financial Excellence. The awards are given to the top 20 percent of rental stores based on financials submitted by rental operators and verified by Peer Executive Groups. This is the fifth year that PEG has named companies for the award.
“We apply owner compensation, expense, and rent tests to verify EBITDA [Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization], and check financial reports and tax returns where appropriate. While our network shows EBITDA performance closer to 28 percent, our Top Gun members average north of 40 percent,” said Dan Crowley, Peer Executive Groups president.
