Logan International Reports 2011 Fourth Quarter and Annual Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2012) -

(All reported figures are in US dollars unless otherwise noted)

Logan International Inc. (TSX:LII) ("Logan" or the "Company") today announced results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2011. Revenues in the fourth quarter were $37.3 million as compared to revenues of $31.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Net earnings from continuing operations were $1.6 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, as compared to net earnings from continuing operations of $2.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in last year's fourth quarter. This year's fourth quarter Modified EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) as defined in the financial table below, decreased to $7.2 million from $7.7 million in last year's fourth quarter.

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2011were $135.5 million as compared to $108.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. For 2011, the Company reported earnings from continuing operations of $8.9 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, as compared to $10.3 million or $0.32 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2010. Modified EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2011 increased to $29.7 million from $29.2 million in the year ended December 31, 2010.

The Company completed two acquisitions during this year's fourth quarter. Therefore, the fourth quarter and year end 2011 results include these acquisitions from the respective acquisition dates and are compared to the pre-acquisition historical results of the Company in 2010. Additionally, Logan completed two acquisitions in 2010 and the Company's 2011 results include the full year results for these two acquisitions as compared to the 2010 results which include partial year operations for the two acquisitions in 2010.

David Barr, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated "Our fourth quarter provided a mixture of good news and disappointing news. Our fishing tool business continued to exceed our expectations; order flow, backlog and revenue all point to strong industry fundamentals and excellent execution by the management. The newly-acquired Kline Oilfield Equipment and Scope Production Development entities each generated positive returns relative to our expectations for the quarter. Dennis Tool made progress both in the introduction of its radial bearing product line and in its pursuit of new international customers. In 2012, we expect the fishing tool business to remain strong (Logan Oil Tools), the PDC insert business to recover gradually (Dennis Tool) and our newly-acquired businesses to continue to report solid operating results (Kline Oilfield Equipment and Scope Production Developments)."

Mr. Barr continued, "Unfortunately, Logan Completion Systems' operating results disappointed us - we learned that certain well conditions require modifications to the MultiStim tool and installation procedures and we were distracted from our day-to-day "non-MultiStim" business. We have since replaced certain members of the senior management team; we have strengthened the MultiStim product and field installation procedures and we have re-emphasized our conventional completions day-to-day business. However, we do not expect a meaningful financial turnaround until our third quarter."

Recent highlights include:

  • During the fourth quarter we completed the acquisition of Kline Oilfield Equipment, Inc. and Scope Production Development Ltd.
  • We recently completed the acquisition of Xtend Energy Services Inc.
  • We negotiated and placed a $95 million senior credit facility with a group of three banks.

In addition, the purchase of Source Energy Tool Services Inc. ("Source") was completed on April 30, 2010 and the purchase of Complete Oil Tools Inc.

  1. The MD&A presents: (a) EBITDA as earnings before finance cost, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), and (b) Modified EBITDA as EBITDA before contingent consideration related to the Source Acquisition transaction, transaction fees, certain acquisition accounting adjustments, share-based compensation payments and severance costs. Neither of these measurements should be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, "net earnings from continuing operations" or "cash flow from operating activities" as determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the Company's financial performance. EBITDA and Modified EBITDA do not have standardized definitions as prescribed by IFRS and; therefore, the Company's presentation of these measurements may not conform to similar presentations by other companies. Management calculates EBITDA and Modified EBITDA each period and evaluates the Company's operating performance based on these measurements. Management believes that Modified EBITDA, which eliminates significant non-cash or non-recurring items of revenue or cost, more accurately presents the results of the Company's ongoing operations and its ability to generate the cash required to finance future growth, acquisitions and capital investments.

EBITDA and Modified EBITDA are provided as measures of the Company's operating performance without regard to financing decisions, share-based compensation payments, age and cost of equipment used and income tax impacts, all of which are factors that are not controlled at the operating management level. The transaction fees included above relate to professional and other fees incurred in connection with the acquisitions in 2010 and 2011. Severance costs relate to amounts paid to terminated employees related to the acquisitions. The acquisition accounting adjustments related to the increase or step-up in cost basis of inventories acquired in a business acquisition. The share-based compensation payments relate to non-cash share-based compensation expense which includes an accelerated recognition of non-cash share-based payments in 2010 due to the Destiny Merger.
