Gemini Corporation Reports 2012 Third Quarter Results

Operational turnaround continues to improve profitability

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2012) - Gemini Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GKX) announces its third quarter financial results for the period ended September 30, 2012.

Revenue in the third quarter of 2012 totalled $22,635,000, which was a 20% increase from the $18,845,000 achieved in the third quarter of 2011. This brings the 2012 year to date total revenue to $67,291,000 and represents a 48% improvement over the $45,429,000 achieved for the same period last year. Demand for services from heavy oil and natural gas liquid producers has remained steady throughout 2012 and is expected to continue solid for the foreseeable future. Client relationship development work focused upon diversifying Gemini's client base has been successfully establishing an extended backlog of work with new and existing clients.

Third quarter gross profit for 2012 was $3,843,000 compared to $3,295,000 for the same period last year, and brings year to date gross profit to $11,264,000 compared to the $8,622,000 achieved last year. The increased proportion of lower margin field service revenue combined with certain cost increases have resulted in the year to date gross profit margin decreasing to 17% from 19%. Management is continuing to identify operational changes that should help to improve these margins.

The third quarter net income of $388,000 (1.1¢ per share) adds to the improved earnings performance for the first half of the year and results in year to date net income of $1,009,000 (2.9¢ per share). These results are in sharp contrast to the net loss figures posted in 2011 and are evidence of Gemini's return to profitability.

"The positive momentum we have been able to achieve this year has been a welcome change for all Gemini stakeholders", remarked Doug Lautermilch, Gemini's President and CEO. "A great deal of effort has gone into turning things around and we are looking forward to building upon this profitability in 2013. The recently completed private placement provides us with additional capital to grow the business and improve our operating capacity."
