Spanish rental company GAM’s latest results for the first half of 2013 show that the company continues to reduce its losses, with net losses of €9.7 million compared to €57.6 million in the same half year in 2012.

Revenues continue to fall, however, with sales down 17.6% to €60.9 million (from €74.0 million last year). Sales from Spain, which represented 61% of the total, were down 20.7% at €37.3 million, while those at its international businesses fell by 12.2% to €23.7 million.
