I would now like to turn the conference over to David Mossberg, Investor Relations representative. Please go ahead.
Thank you, Grant, and thank you, everyone, for joining us on the call. Before we begin, I'd like to remind everyone that this conference call may contain predictions, estimates and other forward-looking statements regarding future events or future performance of Quest. Use of the words like anticipate, project, estimate, expect, intend, believe and other similar expressions are intended to identify those forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements also include statements regarding Quest's future opportunities for growth, Quest's expectations for revenue, margins and profitability in future periods, plus industry position and industry trends, Quest's prospects, outlook and business strategies going forward and Quest's beliefs regarding progress and timing.
Such forward-looking statements are based on Quest's current expectations, estimates, projections, beliefs and assumptions and involve certain significant risks and uncertainties. Actual events or Quest's results could differ materially from those discussed in forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including changing market trends, reduced demand, the competitive nature of Quest's industries and our belief that our asset-light business model and other essential nature of our services positions us well to weather the challenge -- challenging COVID-19 environment, which are discussed in greater detail in Quest's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.
You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such statements and to consult our SEC filings for additional risks and uncertainties. You can find those documents on Quest's website at qrhc.com.

In addition, in this call we may include industry and market data and other statistical information, as well as Quest's observations and views about industry conditions and developments. The data and information are based on Quest's estimates, independent publications, government publications and reports by market research firms and other sources.
Although Quest believes these sources are reliable and data and other information are accurate, we caution that Quest does not independently verify the reliability of the sources or the accuracy of the information. In addition, Quest's observations about the view of our industry conditions and developments are its own and may not be supported or agreed with by other industry participants or observers. Certain non-GAAP financial measures will be discussed during this call. These non-GAAP measures are used by management to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate the company's current performance.
