GASFRAC Announces Second Quarter 2011 Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 8, 2011) - GASFRAC Energy Services Inc. (TSX:GFS) -

Dwight Loree, Chief Executive Officer commented "While revenue for the quarter increased 7% to $14.2 million from $13.3 million in 2010, the severe and extended spring breakup in Canada prevented access to many customer locations during the entire quarter causing our revenues to be significantly below our expectations. Typically, breakup commences when ground frost begins to thaw in early April and continues for a period of four to six weeks. This year, an unusually wet May and June caused the soft ground conditions to continue for the entire second quarter resulting in the most extended spring breakup period in over thirty years.

A significant milestone during the quarter was the introduction of equipment and commencement of GASFRAC operations in Texas. Initially customers scheduled work to use the Company's technology on selected wells to determine the impact on production in those particular formations and conditions. We have had positive feedback from customers on the results of our operations and anticipate increased demand. In addition to the formations we have fractured during the quarter we have work scheduled in the Eagle Ford Shale in Texas and the Piceance Basin in Colorado for the third quarter.

We now have six sets of equipment available for operations with four more in build. We expect strong utilization of the sets in Canada as customers recommence activities after the breakup. In the USA we are focused on a few key formations and expect customer demand to increase as the positive results of LPG fracturing are demonstrated in these formations."

Unless the context otherwise requires, all references in this MD&A to "we", "us" or "our" mean GASFRAC.

Business of GASFRAC

GASFRAC was incorporated on February 13, 2006 in Canada under the Business Corporations Act in the Province of Alberta. The Company is an oil and gas well fracturing company that has developed new technology, the "LPG Fracturing Process", to enable wells to be fractured safely with LPG, more specifically propane and butane. The Company has four wholly-owned subsidiaries, GASFRAC Services GP Inc., GASFRAC Energy Services Limited Partnership, GASFRAC Luxembourg Finance (a Luxembourg incorporated entity), and GASFRAC Inc. (a U.S. incorporated entity).

Changes in Accounting Policies

On January 1, 2011, GASFRAC adopted International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") for financial reporting purposes, using a transition date of January 1, 2010. The financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2011, including required comparative information, have been prepared in accordance with IFRS 1, First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards, and with International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"). Previously, the Company prepared its Interim and Annual Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles ("Previous GAAP"). The 2010 comparative information has been prepared in accordance with IFRS. The adoption of IFRS has not had an impact on the Company's operations, strategic decisions or cash flow. Further information on the IFRS impacts is provided in the Accounting Policies and Estimates sections of this MD&A, including reconciliations between Previous GAAP and IFRS Net Income, and other financial metrics.

Change of functional currency

As the operations of the Company's wholly owned United States ("U.S.") subsidiary continue to gain significance relative to the operations of the Company as a whole the Board of Directors has concluded that the most appropriate functional currency of the United States subsidiary is the United States Dollar, the change was effective for the Company April 1, 2011. This reflects the fact that as of the effective date of this change the majority of the subsidiary's pricing for fracing services is influenced by the U.S. dollar, the competitive and regulatory environment of the subsidiary are mainly influenced by the U.S. and the U.S. Dollar now largely influences labor, material and other costs of providing fracing services. The previous functional currency of the subsidiary was the Canadian Dollar.

Second Quarter Highlights

Financial Overview

Revenue

Revenue for the quarter increased to $14.2 million from $13.3 million in 2010. While the Company did experience a year over year revenue increase, revenue decreased compared to the $30.5 million in the first quarter and was significantly below our expectations. The severe and extended spring breakup in Canada is the major contributing cause of revenue being less than expected for the quarter. Spring breakup is that period during the second quarter when soft ground conditions curtail activities in the Canadian oilfield such that heavy equipment, like GASFRAC's, is unable to access customer sites due to road bans or other unpassable conditions. Typically, this period commences when ground frost begins to thaw in early April and continues for a period of four to six weeks. This year, an unusually wet May and June caused the soft ground conditions to continue for the entire second quarter in the Company's operating areas in Canada. These conditions resulted in the most extended spring breakup period since 1978.

During the quarter, the Company moved equipment to Texas, USA and commenced operations there. Initially customers scheduled work to use the Company's technology on selected wells to determine the impact on production in those particular formations and conditions. Customers have indicated that, based on these results, they will determine the extent of future work (see "Outlook"). During the quarter, the Company performed ten fracturing treatments on seven different wellbores for three companies in the USA. Total revenue in the USA was $1.8 million.

During the quarter two customers accounted for approximately 53% of the Company's revenue and year to date the Company had two customers who each accounted for more than 10% of our revenues individually. These two customers accounted for approximately 37% of the Company's total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

During the quarter the Company completed 70 treatments at an average price of $202 compared to 63 treatments at an average job price of $211 during Q2 2010.

Operating Expense

Operating expense increased to $15.4 million (109% of revenue) during Q2 2011 from $10.4 million (78% of revenue) in Q2 2010. Direct field operating costs as a percentage of job revenue have remained consistent quarter over quarter. The increase in total operating costs reflects added fixed costs (field and operating support staff, facilities and equipment) put in place to support the additional sets of equipment available for revenue generation. During the quarter, utilization levels for this equipment did not support the added costs. As described in "Outlook" we anticipate improved utilization during the remainder of the year in both Canada and the USA.

Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") Expense

SG&A expense increased to $3.7 million (26% of revenue) during Q2 2011 from $2.1 million (16% of revenue) in Q2 2010. The SG&A costs are consistent with the $3.7 million cost in Q1 2011 and reflects support staff added in both Canada and the USA in the second half of 2010.

Amortization

Amortization increased to $3.6 million during Q2 2011 from $1.6 million in Q2 2010. The increase is due to an increase in operating property and equipment.

EBITDA

EBITDA decreased to a loss of $5.6 million during Q2 2011 from EBITDA of $0.4 million in Q2 2010. The EBITDA loss results from the reduced equipment utilization caused by the extended spring breakup. This reduced utilization caused revenues to fall significantly below initial expectations. Combined with the operating infrastructure (and related costs) to support higher revenues, the low equipment utilization resulted in the EBITDA loss for the quarter.

Net Income

Net income decreased to a loss of $7.8 million during Q2 2011 from a loss of $1.3 million during Q2 2010.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

As at June 30, 2011 the Company had $49.9 million of working capital compared to $118.3 million at December 31, 2010. The decrease in working capital is primarily due to investing in capital assets offset by an increase is cash provided from operating activities.

As at June 30, 2011, the Company had approximately $92 million of capital commitments as part of the 2011 capital program. The Company anticipates being able to fund these capital expenditures through cash on hand, operating cash flows and financing which may include current or future debt facilities or equity or a combination thereof.

Operating

The Company's funds used in operations (as defined under Non-IFRS Measures) was $5.1 million for Q2 2011 compared to funds provided by operations of $0.8 million in Q2 2010. The decrease is largely due to the loss for the quarter as compared to a profit in 2010.

Financing

Net cash provided by financing activities for Q2 2011 was $0.7 million compared to $0.7 million during Q2 2010. Both result from the exercise of stock options and warrants.

As at June 30, 2011 the Company had a $15 million demand revolving loan facility and a $35 million committed revolving facility (see Note 11 of the interim consolidated financial statements). No amounts were drawn on these facilities as at June 30, 2011 or as at the date of this MD&A. The Company is in compliance with all its debt covenants.

Investing

For Q2 2011 the Company's invested $22.4 million in property and equipment to add revenue producing capacity as compared to $7.4 million in Q2 2010. For the six month period to June 30, 2011 the Company has invested $61.1 million in property and equipment as compared to $13.7 million for the same period in 2010.

Accounting Policies and Estimates

Adoption of IFRS

The Company has prepared its June 30, 2011 Interim Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS 1, First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards, and with IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as issued by the IASB. Previously, the Company prepared its financial statements in accordance with Previous GAAP. The adoption of IFRS has not had a material impact on the Company's operations, strategic decisions, cash flow and capital expenditures.

The Company's IFRS accounting policies are provided in Note 3 to the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements. In addition, Note 15 to the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements presents reconciliations between the Company's 2010 Previous GAAP results and the 2010 IFRS results. The reconciliations include the Consolidated Balance Sheets as at January 1, 2010, June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2010, and Consolidated Statements of Earnings, Comprehensive (Loss) Income and Changes in Shareholders' Equity for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010 and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010.

Accounting Policy Changes

Leases

Previous GAAP considered the leases to be of a capital nature based on certain quantifiable criteria. Based on the criteria, GASFRAC concluded that the leases on the light vehicles were operating leases in nature.

Under IFRS, with the absence of the quantitative criteria provided by Previous GAAP, we determined that qualitatively, the risks and rewards of the lease reside with GASFRAC and as such, treated it as a financing lease.

Amortization

With the conversion to IFRS, GASFRAC componentized the field equipment into each of the separate components that made up the equipment. We then assessed the useful life and residual value for each of these components. Based on this assessment, certain amortization rates were modified.

Stock based compensation

Under Previous GAAP, GASFRAC accounted for certain stock based compensation plans whereby the obligation and compensation costs were accrued over the vesting period using the intrinsic value method. The intrinsic value of a share unit is the amount by which the Company's share price exceeds the exercise price of the share unit.

For certain stock-based compensation plans, IFRS requires share-based compensation be fair valued using an option pricing model, such as the Black-Scholes model, at each reporting date. Also, under IFRS, each tranche in an award is considered a separate award with its own vesting period. Further, GASFRAC adjusted the volatility of the unvested options and warrants that were issued when GASFRAC was not publically traded from 0% to 52% as IFRS does not permit the use of 0% volatility.

Accordingly, upon transition to IFRS, the Company recorded a fair value adjustment of $891 as at January 1, 2010 to increase the stock based compensation with a corresponding charge to retained earnings. GASFRAC elected to use the IFRS 1 exemption whereby the stock based compensation that had vested or settled prior to January 1, 2010 were not required to be retrospectively restated. Subsequent fair value adjustments are recorded through stock based compensation.

As part of the 2010 qualifying transaction, the amount of consideration in excess of the fair market value of assets received was offset against share issue costs under Previous GAAP. Under IFRS, the amount of consideration in excess of the fair market value of assets received was listed as an unidentifiable service cost and expensed to sales, general and administrative expense. The amount of the adjustment was $245.

Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

There have been no changes in GASFRAC's internal controls over financial reporting during the period ended June 30, 2011, which have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

During the first quarter of 2011, GASFRAC completed an evaluation of the Company's internal controls under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in National Instrument 52-109. Based on the evaluation, the Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were designed to provide a reasonable level of assurance over the disclosure of material information, and are effective as of June 30, 2011.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company is not party to any off balance sheet arrangements or transactions.

Non-IFRS Measures

Certain supplementary measures in this MD&A do not have any standardized meaning as prescribed under IFRS and, therefore, are considered non-IFRS measures. These measures have been described and presented in order to provide shareholders and potential investors with additional information regarding the Company's financial results, liquidity and ability to generate funds to finance its operations. These measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other entities, and are further explained as follows:

EBITDA is defined as net income before interest income and expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization and non-controlling interest. EBITDA is presented because it is frequently used by securities analysts and others for evaluating companies and their ability to service debt.

EBITDA was calculated as follows:

Outlook

We expect the North American pressure pumping market will remain strong in 2011 due to the service intensity of the wells being drilled, energy demand and service supply levels. Although there is projected to be a significant amount of new horsepower being added to the market in 2011, it is still estimated that the market will be undersupplied based on projected rig activity. As natural gas prices continue to be soft we have observed customers targeting more of their capital budgets in oil and liquids-rich reservoirs. Further, development activity is focused on deep, unconventional and horizontal wells often requiring multi-stage fracturing.

As noted above, we expect that overall demand for fracturing services will continue to be strong for 2011 and this, combined with growing knowledge and acceptance of the Company's LPG fracturing technology, should support continued growth of our Canadian revenue base. The extended spring breakup in the second quarter severely hindered equipment utilization. A key focus of the Company in the second half of 2011 is utilization of the four operating sets of equipment available in Canada. Our major Canadian customers have indicated a strong demand for our services in the second half of 2011 in line with the development of specific project areas. Additionally, we anticipate adding new customers as interest in LPG fracturing increases based on positive production results from our customer base.

As in Canada, more drilling activity in the USA is being focused on oil and liquids rich gas. While industry dynamics are similar to Canada for GASFRAC, the key element of our initial growth in the USA will be obtaining customer acceptance of our LPG fracturing technology and on focusing on key basins where we can quickly reach sufficient mass to ensure high utilization rates. During the second quarter one area of potential ongoing work was identified and negotiations have commenced with the customer for a long-term contract. Another area of focus is the Eagle Ford region where we anticipate a high level of drilling activity and have identified customers and expect to initiate work in the region during the third quarter of 2011. We are confident that customers will experience positive results from LPG fracturing.

These statements are only predictions and are based on current expectations, estimates, projections and assumptions, which we believe are reasonable but which may prove to be incorrect and therefore such forward-looking statements should not be unduly relied upon. In addition to other factors and assumptions which may be identified in this document, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things, industry activity; effect of market conditions on the demand for the Company's services; the ability to obtain qualified staff, equipment and services in a timely manner; the effect of current plans; the timing of capital expenditures and receipt of added equipment operating capacity; future oil and natural gas prices and the ability of the Company to successfully market its services.

By its nature, forward-looking information involves numerous assumptions, known and unknown risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, that contribute to the possibility that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not occur. These risks and uncertainties include: changes in drilling activity; fluctuating oil and natural gas prices; general economic conditions; weather conditions; regulatory changes; the successful development and execution of technology; customer acceptance of new technology; the potential of competing technologies by market competitors; the availability of qualified staff, raw materials and propery and equipment.

GASFRAC ENERGY SERVICES INC.
Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(unaudited)
(Figures in text and tables are in 000s except share data and certain other
exceptions as indicated)

1. CORPORATE INFORMATION

GASFRAC Energy Services Inc. ("Gasfrac" or "the Company") is an oil and gas well fracturing company that has developed the "LPG Fracturing Process" to enable wells to be fractured with LPG, more specifically propane and butane.

GASFRAC is a publically traded company, incorporated and domiciled in Canada. The address and registered office is Suite 1900, 801 - 6th Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T2P 3W2.

These interim Consolidated Financial Statements were approved and authorized for issuance by the Board of Directors on August 8, 2011.

The Company's Canadian business is seasonal in nature. The lowest activity is typically experienced during the second quarter of the year when road weight restrictions are in place due to spring break up.

2. BASIS OF PREPARATION

In conjunction with the Company's annual audited Consolidated Financial Statements to be issued under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") for the year ended December 31, 2011, these interim Consolidated Financial Statements present GASFRAC's initial financial results of operations and financial position under IFRS as at and for the six months ended June 30, 2011, including 2010 comparative periods. As a result, they have been prepared in accordance with IFRS 1, "First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards" and with International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, "Interim Financial Reporting", as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"). These interim Consolidated Financial Statements do not include all the necessary annual disclosures in accordance with IFRS. Previously, the Company prepared its interim and annual Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles ("Previous GAAP").

The preparation of these interim Consolidated Financial Statements resulted in changes to GASFRAC's accounting policies as compared to those disclosed in the Company's annual audited Consolidated Financial Statements for the period ended December 31, 2010 issued under Previous GAAP. A summary of the significant changes to GASFRAC's accounting policies is disclosed in Note 15 along with reconciliations presenting the impact of the transition to IFRS for the comparative periods as at January 1, 2010, as at and for the six months ended June 30, 2010, and as at and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010.

Operating expenses as presented on the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive (loss) Income are primarily composed of direct salaries, materials, and other direct operating costs. Selling, general, and administrative expenses as presented on the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive (loss) Income are primarily composed of indirect salaries, head office expenses, insurance, professional fees and other indirect costs.

A summary of GASFRAC's significant accounting policies under IFRS is presented in Note 3. These policies have been retrospectively and consistently applied except where specific exemptions permitted an alternative treatment upon transition to IFRS in accordance with IFRS 1 as disclosed in Note 15.

These consolidated financial statements are presented in Canadian dollars, which is the Company's functional currency. All financial information presented in dollars has been rounded to the nearest thousand except for share and per share amounts.

These interim Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis except for financial instruments and share based payment transactions that are measured at fair value.

3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The accounting policies set out below have been applied consistently to all periods presented in these consolidated financial statements and in preparing the opening IFRS statement of financial position at January 1, 2010 for the purposes of the transition to IFRS, unless otherwise indicated.

Basis of consolidation

The financial statements of the Company consolidate the accounts of GASFRAC and its subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions, balances and unrealized gains and losses from intercompany transactions are eliminated on consolidation. Subsidiaries are those entities which GASFRAC controls by having the power to govern the financial and operating policies.

The accounting policies have been applied consistently by the Company's entities.

Measurement Uncertainty

The preparation of consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses. Significant estimates include valuation of property and equipment, accounts receivable, and inventory. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Change of functional currency

As the operations of the Company's wholly owned United States ("U.S.") subsidiary continue to gain significance relative to the operations of the Company as a whole the Board of Directors has concluded that the most appropriate functional currency of the United States subsidiary is the United States Dollar, the change was effective for the Company April 1, 2011. This reflects the fact that as of the effective date of this change the majority of the subsidiary's pricing for fracing services is influenced by the U.S. Dollar, the competitive and regulatory environment of the subsidiary are mainly influenced by the U.S. and the U.S. Dollar now largely influences labor, material and other costs of providing fracing services. The previous functional currency of the subsidiary was the Canadian Dollar.

Foreign currency translation

Monetary assets and liabilities of the Company that are denominated in foreign currencies are translated into its functional currency at the rates of exchange in effect at the period end date. Non-monetary assets and liabilities of the Company that are denominated in foreign currencies are translated into its functional currency using the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. Exchange rate differences are recorded in the Consolidated Statement of Earnings.

The financial statements of the subsidiaries that have a functional currency different from that of the Company are translated into Canadian Dollars whereby assets and liabilities are translated at the rate of exchange at the balance sheet date, revenues and expenses are translated at average quarterly exchange rates (as this is considered a reasonable approximation of actual rates), and gains and losses in translation are recognized in the shareholders' equity section as accumulated other comprehensive income.

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents are held for the purpose of meeting short-term cash commitments and include bank balances and short-term investments with maturities of less than 90 days.

Inventory

Inventory consists of liquefied petroleum gas, chemicals, and proppants used to stimulate well production and are stated at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Cost is determined using the weighted average method.

Net realizable value is the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less estimated costs of completion and selling expenses.

Property and equipment

Property and equipment are recorded at cost and are amortized over their estimated economic useful lives using the straight-line method as follows:


Asset                                             Amortization  Useful life
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Equipment                                       Straight line 3 - 20 Years
 Furniture & Fixtures                            Straight line      5 years
 Leasehold Improvements                          Straight line   Lease term
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

When parts of an item of property, plant and equipment have different useful lives, they are accounted for as separate items. Assets under construction are not amortized until put into service.

Management estimates the useful life and residual value of property and equipment on expected utilization, effectiveness of maintenance programs and expected impact of technological change. Although management believes the estimated useful lives of the property and equipment are reasonable, it is possible that changes in estimates could occur which may affect the expected useful lives and residual values of the property and equipment.

Repairs and maintenance costs are charged to the consolidated statement of comprehensive (loss) income during the period in which they are incurred.

Intangible assets

Intangible assets including deferred development costs, patents and intellectual property that meet certain criteria related to technology, market and financial feasibility are deferred. Such costs are amortized upon commencement of commercial sales over the estimated economic life of the related product as follows:


Asset                                             Depreciation  Useful life
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Patents & Intellectual Property                 Straight line      5 years
 Deferred Development Costs                      Straight line      5 years
 Other Intangible Assets                         Straight line      5 years
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Costs that do not meet such criteria are charged to income in the period of expenditure.

Impairment of long-term assets

Long-term assets include property and equipment and intangible assets. The carrying values are reviewed when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset or cash generating unit may not be recoverable. For the purpose of measuring recoverable amounts, assets are grouped at the lowest levels for which there are separate identifiable cash flows (cash generating units). If indicators of impairments exist, the recoverable amount of the asset or cash generating unit is estimated as the greater of the value in use or the fair value less cost to sell. If the carrying value of the asset or cash generating unit exceeds the recoverable amount, the asset or cash generating unit is written down with an impairment recognized in net earnings. The impairment charge is the difference between the amortized cost of the asset and the present value of the estimated future cash flows.

The Company evaluates impairment losses for potential reversals when events or changes in circumstances warrant such consideration.

Revenue recognition

The Company's revenue is comprised of services and other revenue and is generally sold on agreed upon priced purchase orders or contracts with the customer. Contract terms do not include provisions for significant post-service delivery obligations. Service and other revenue is recognized when the services are provided and collectability is reasonably assured.

Deferred income tax

Deferred tax is recognized in respect to temporary differences arising in tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the consolidated financial statements. Deferred tax is determined on a non-discounted basis using tax rates and laws that have been enacted or substantially enacted at the reporting date and are expected to apply when the deferred tax asset or liability is realized or settled. Deferred tax assets are recognized to the extent that it is probable that the assets can be recovered.

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized in the statement of income except to the extent it relates to items recognized directly in equity, in which case the income tax is also recognized directly in equity.

Leases

Leases or other arrangements entered into for the use of an asset are classified as either finance or operating leases. Finance leases transfer to the Company substantially all of the risks and benefits incidental to ownership of the leased item. Finance leases are capitalized at the commencement of the lease term at the lower of the fair value of the leased asset or the present value of the minimum lease payments. Capitalized leased assets are amortized over the shorter of the estimated useful life of the assets and the lease term.

Stock based compensation

The Company has a restricted share plan, performance share unit plan, stock options, and warrants granted to directors, officers, employees, and consultants as described in Note 9. All forms of stock based compensation treat each tranche as a separate award with its own vesting period with stock based compensation expense recognized on the graded vesting basis. For the restricted share plan, fair values are determined using prices at the grant date and are recognized as stock based compensation expense with a corresponding credit to shareholders equity. For the performance share unit plan, fair values are determined using prices at the market date and are recognized as stock based compensation with a corresponding credit to current liabilities. Stock options and warrants are accounted for using the fair value method under which compensation expense is recorded based on the estimated fair value of the options at the grant date using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Under this method, compensation cost attributable to stock options granted is measured at fair value at the grant date and expensed over the vesting period with a corresponding increase to contributed surplus. Upon exercise of the stock options, consideration paid together with the amount previously recognized in contributed surplus is recorded as share capital.

(Loss) Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the net (loss) earnings for the period attributable to equity owners of GASFRAC by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period.

Diluted earnings per share is calculated based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year adjusted by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for dilutive instruments.

Financial instruments

Financial assets and liabilities are recognized when GASFRAC becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. Financial assets are derecognized when the rights to receive cash flows from the assets have expired or have been transferred and GASFRAC has transferred substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership.

Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount reported in the balance sheet when there is a legally enforceable right to offset the recognized amounts and there is an intention to settle on a net basis, or realize the asset and settle the liability simultaneously.

At initial recognition, GASFRAC classifies its financial instruments in the following categories depending on the purpose for which the instrument were acquired:

(i) Financial assets and liabilities at fair value through profit or loss: A financial asset or liability is classified in this category if acquired principally for the purpose of selling or repurchasing in the short-term. The Company does not currently have derivative financial instruments. Financial instruments in this category are recognized initially and subsequently at fair value. Transaction costs are expensed in the statement of income. Gains and losses arising from changes in fair value are presented in the statement of income within other gains and losses in the period in which they arise. Financial assets and liabilities at fair value through profit or loss are classified as current except for the portion expected to be realized or paid beyond twelve months of the balance sheet date, which is classified as non-current.

(ii) Available-for-sale investments: Available-for-sale investments are non-derivatives that are either designated in this category or not classified in any of the other categories. The Company's available-for sale assets comprise of cash and cash equivalents. Available-for-sale investments are recognized initially at fair value plus transaction costs and are subsequently carried at fair value. Gains or losses arising from changes in fair value are recognized in other comprehensive income. Available-for-sale investments are classified as non-current, unless the investment matures within twelve months, or management expects to dispose of them within twelve months. Interest on available-for-sale investments, calculated using the effective interest method, is recognized in the statement of income as part of interest income. Dividends on available-for-sale equity instruments are recognized in the statement of income as part of other gains and losses when the Company's right to receive payment is established. When an available-for-sale investment is sold or impaired, the accumulated gains or losses are moved from accumulated other comprehensive income to the statement of income and are included in other gains and losses.

(iii) Loans and receivables: Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. The Company's loans and receivables comprise of accounts receivable, and are included in current assets due to their short-term nature. Loans and receivables are initially recognized at the amount expected to be received, less, when material, a discount to reduce the loans and receivables to fair value. Subsequently, loans and receivables are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method less a provision for impairment.

(iv) Financial liabilities at amortized cost: Financial liabilities at amortized cost include accounts payable and accrued liabilities. Trade payables are initially recognized at the amount required to be paid, less, when material, a discount to reduce the payables to fair value. Subsequently, trade payables are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method. Bank debt and long-term debt are recognized initially at fair value, net of any transaction costs incurred, and subsequently at amortized cost using the effective interest method.

Financial liabilities are classified as current liabilities if payment is due within twelve months. Otherwise, they are presented as non-current liabilities.

Impairment of financial assets

At each reporting date, the Company assesses whether there is objective evidence that a financial asset is impaired. If such evidence exists, the Company recognizes an impairment loss, as follows:

(i) Financial assets carried at amortized cost: The loss is the difference between the amortized cost of the loan or receivable and the present value of the estimated future cash flows, discounted using the instrument's original effective interest rate. The carrying amount of the asset is reduced by this amount either directly or indirectly through the use of an allowance account.

(ii) Available-for-sale financial assets: The impairment loss is the difference between the original cost of the asset and its fair value at the measurement date, less any impairment losses previously recognized in the statement of income. This amount represents the cumulative loss in accumulated other comprehensive income that is reclassified to net income.

Impairment losses on financial assets carried at amortized cost are reversed in subsequent periods if the amount of the loss decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognized. Impairment losses on available-for-sale equity instruments are not reversed.

Comparative figures

Certain comparative figures have been reclassified to conform to the current period's presentation.

11. CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

The Company's strategy is to maintain a capital structure to sustain future growth of the business and retain creditor, investor and market confidence. Recognizing the cyclical nature of the oilfield services industry, the Company strives to maintain a conservative balance between long-term debt and shareholders' equity. The Company's capital structure is currently comprised of shareholders' equity and undrawn long-term bank debt. The Company may occasionally need to increase its level of long-term debt to total capitalization to facilitate growth activities.

The Company has a credit facility with a Canadian chartered bank. The credit facility includes a $15 million demand revolving loan ("Operating Loan") and a $35 million committed revolving facility ("Revolving Facility"). The Operating Loan bears interest at prime plus 1.25% and is margined by the Company's accounts receivable. The Revolving Facility bears interest at prime plus 1.4% to prime plus 1.9%, shall not exceed 50% of the net book value of the Company's capital assets, may be extended annually, if not extended shall be repayable in eight equal quarterly instalments. Both facilities are secured by a floating charge over all of the assets of the Company and are subject to certain financial covenants. As at June 30, the Company is in compliance with all the covenants related to these facilities.

The Company monitors its capital structure and makes adjustments in light of changing market conditions and new opportunities, while remaining cognizant of the cyclical nature of the oilfield services sector. To maintain or adjust its capital structure, the Company may revise its capital spending, issue new shares, issue new debt, or draw on its current short-term debt facility.

12. ENTERPRISE WIDE DISCLOSURE

As at June 30, 2011, the Company has two geographic segments being the Canadian segment and the United States segment.

Explanation of the effects of the transition to IFRS

Leases

Previous GAAP considered the leases to be of a capital nature based on certain quantifiable criteria. Based on the criteria, GASFRAC concluded that the leases on its light vehicles were operating leases in nature for Previous GAAP purposes.

Under IFRS, with the absence of the quantitative criteria provided by Previous GAAP, the Company determined that qualitatively, the risks and rewards of these leases reside with GASFRAC and as such, should be treated as financing leases.

Amortization

With the conversion to IFRS, GASFRAC componentized the field equipment into each of the separate components that made up field equipment. We then assessed the useful life and residual value for each of these components. Based on this assessment, certain depreciation rates were modified.

Share based payments

Under Previous GAAP, GASFRAC accounted for certain stock based compensation plans whereby the obligation and compensation costs were accrued over the vesting period using the intrinsic value method. The intrinsic value of a share unit is the amount by which the Company's share price exceeds the exercise price of the share unit.

For certain stock-based compensation plans, IFRS requires share-based compensation be fair valued using an option pricing model, such as the Black-Scholes model, at each reporting date. Each tranche in an award is considered a separate award with its own vesting period. Further, GASFRAC adjusted the volatility of the unvested options and warrants that were issued when GASFRAC was not publically traded from 0% to 50%.

Accordingly, upon transition to IFRS, the Company recorded a fair value adjustment of $891 as at January 1, 2010 to increase the share-based compensation with a corresponding charge to retained earnings. GASFRAC elected to use the IFRS 1 exemption whereby the share-based payments that had vested or settled prior to January 1, 2010 were not required to be retrospectively restated. Subsequent fair value adjustments are recorded through stock based compensation.

As part of the 2010 Kierland transaction, the amount of consideration in excess of the fair market value of assets received was offset against share issue costs under Previous GAAP. Under IFRS, the amount of consideration in excess of the fair market value of assets received was listed as an unidentifiable transaction cost and expensed to sales, general and administrative expense. The amount of the adjustment was $245.

Adjustments to the statement of cash flows

The transition from Previous GAAP to IFRS had no significant impact on cash flows presented by GASFRAC except for stock based compensation and amortization. Any changes relating to net income would be offset by items not effecting cash such as amortization and stock based compensation or would result in a change in non-cash working capital.
