eResearch Issues Initiating Report on Leader Energy Services Ltd.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 11, 2011) - Leader Energy Services Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LEA) provides well-stimulation services across the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.

The oil price is up. Drilling activity is up. Oilfield services business is up. Industry fundamentals are extremely strong for well-stimulation services companies like Leader Energy.

The strong recovery in drilling activity in western Canada has allowed the Company not only to expand its fleet size, but also to raise its prices. We anticipate these strong industry fundamentals will continue at least for the next two years. We see Leader Energy as a growth story. This provides the perfect back-drop for a scenario of increasing investor interest and a concomitant rising share price.

We recommend Leader Energy as a Speculative Buy for risk-tolerant investors. The recent pull-back represents a buying opportunity. Our 12-month Target Price is $1.90 per share.
