Gemini Corporation Reports 2013 Third Quarter Results

Record quarterly performance achieved across the organization

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 14, 2013) - Gemini Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GKX) announces its third quarter financial results for the period ended September 30, 2013.

Revenue in the third quarter of 2013 totalled $35.7 million, which was a 58% increase over the $22.6 million achieved in the third quarter of 2012. Year to date revenue totals $78.8 million compared to $67.3 million for the same period last year. The increase in third quarter revenue is a reflection of the strong backlog of work that has been established with the Corporation's key clients. The alliance agreements that have been entered into over the past 18 months are generating new levels of activity and presenting solid growth opportunities for all operations. The backlog for the remainder of 2013 and early 2014 is not as substantial as it was entering into the third quarter, due to the recent softening of activity and normal seasonality across the energy services market.

Third quarter gross profit for 2013 was $7.3 million compared to $3.8 million in the same period of 2012, resulting in year to date gross profit of $14.8 million versus $11.3 million last year. Gross profit as a percent of revenue remained consistent with the second quarter at 20%, driven by strong staff utilization and controlled infrastructure spending as revenue increased.

The Corporation's 2013 third quarter net income was $1.8 million (3.4¢ per share) compared to the 2012 third quarter net income of $0.4 million (1.1¢ per share). Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 total $2.6 million (4.8¢ per share) compared to $1.0 million (2.9¢ per share) for the same period of 2012.

"The impressive third quarter results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our people as we continue to grow the organization," remarked Doug Lautermilch, Gemini's President and CEO. "We have a strong team of professionals across the entire company that are dedicated to doing what is right for our clients and that is winning us repeat work like we have never experienced before. We stated in our 2012 Annual Report that we are 'Ready for Growth' and the results of the third quarter demonstrate the truth in that statement."
