Internal growth continued to be led by Specialty Chemicals and Logistics. First quarter results were boosted by the accretive purchase of Spidle Sales & Service which is reflected in the financial results effective January 1, 2005. We believe the integration of Spidle into our drilling tools segment has been successful with performance results on target with management's projected earnings estimates. Our downhole production segment returned a profit this quarter for the first time in eight quarters with the second quarter projected to be profitable as well.

Corporate highlights of the quarter included the closing of the acquisition of Spidle Sales & Service, Inc., the purchase of shaker screen manufacturing assets from Phoenix E&P Technology, the refinancing of our senior credit facility with Wells Fargo, and Flotek's first investor presentation at the EnerCom Oil Service Conference.

Our credit facility with Wells Fargo allows up to $2 million of capital expenditures to be made during the year to fund Flotek's growth. The capital expenditures program for 2005 includes further modernization and expansion of our research labs in Marlow, Oklahoma, and Denver, Colorado. Specialty Chemicals is also evaluating the expansion of its manufacturing operations in new geographic locations to better serve its growing customer base.

Chairman and CEO, Jerry D. Dumas, Sr. commented, "We are committed to staying focused and disciplined, with a continued emphasis on increasing profits and shareholder value. We are very active in seeking acquisitions that are strategic to our core business: production tools, drilling tools and specialty chemicals."

The Company is looking forward to its Annual Meeting of Shareholders on May 24th at the Houston Petroleum Club at 2pm and invites all shareholders, customers, vendors and potential investors to attend and spend time with the management team.
