Landstar Seeks Acquisitions

Jim Gattoni, President and Chief Executive officer of Landstar System Inc. (NasdaqGS:LSTR) said, "We look at opportunities for acquisitions, but they're hard to find. And at this point we're not going to buy a company that will compete against the agents. So acquisitions are kind of, they are in our mind but hard to identify when it will actually fit in. So what's left? You got dividends and buybacks. We've been buying back stock since 1997. We've spent over $1 billion doing it. We took our share count down from 102 million down to 45 million and that's what we're going to continue to do with our cash flow".
