Logan International Reports 2013 Second Quarter Financial Results

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

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 13, 2013) - Logan International Inc. (TSX:LII) ("Logan" or the "Company") today announced the results of its second quarter ended June 30, 2013. Revenue in the quarter was $52.6 million as compared to $40.2 million in the prior year quarter. Net earnings were $4.8 million, $.14 per diluted share, in this year's second quarter as compared to $2.4 million, $.07 per diluted share, in last year's second quarter. This year's second quarter Modified EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) increased to $13.2 million from $8.3 million in last year's second quarter. Nearly every one of our business entities contributed to the improvements in revenue, net earnings and Modified EBITDA.

Logan recorded year to date revenue of $101.8 million in 2013 as compared to $81.1 million in the corresponding period of last year and reported net earnings of $10.0 million, $.30 per diluted share, as compared to $5.2 million, $.15 per diluted share, in the corresponding period last year. Current year-to-date Modified EBITDA was $25.4 million as compared to prior year-to-date Modified EBITDA of $16.8 million.

This year's reports include the operating results of the Sup-R-Jar business which was acquired in April 2013. In addition, the prior year to date report includes the results of operations of Xtend Energy Services ("Xtend") since March 1, 2012 (acquisition date).

Logan's Chief Executive Officer Gerald Hage stated, "We are extremely pleased to report record quarterly operating results. Our quarterly revenues increased by over 30% and our quarterly Modified EBITDA increased by almost 60% - each achieved despite the effects of the seasonal slowdown in Canada. Operating highlights include the continued brisk demand for Logan Oil Tools' fishing and stroking tools, an exceptionally strong performance by the Xtend Energy Services U.S. operations, and sales of Logan Completion Systems products into China and Mexico. Also contributing to the quarter's performance was an increase in sales of Dennis Tool Company inserts into China, Russia and Algeria. In addition, we are optimistic about the remainder of 2013 as industry fundamentals are expected to maintain at the current levels. Finally, as we announced during the quarter, we are undergoing a strategic review to enhance shareholder value. We have not yet completed the review."

Note: The purchase of Xtend was completed on March 1, 2012 and, accordingly, the Company's six month period ended June 30, 2012 operating results included four months of Xtend. In addition, the purchase of the Sup-R-Jar product line occurred on April 17, 2013.

(1) Management calculates: (a) EBITDA as earnings before net finance cost, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), and (b) Modified EBITDA as EBITDA before acquisition accounting adjustments, transaction fees, 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 International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as an indicator of the Company's financial performance. EBITDA and Modified EBITDA do not have standardized definitions as prescribed by IFRS; 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 fund or finance future growth, acquisitions and capital investments. A reconciliation of EBIT DA and Modified EBIT DA with net earnings for each period follows.

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 acquisition accounting adjustments reverse the effect of the increase or step-up in cost basis of inventories acquired in a business combination. The transaction fees include the professional and other fees incurred in connection with acquisitions in 2012 and 2013. The share-based compensation payments relate to expense recognized from stock appreciation rights as well as the Company's stock option and restricted share unit plans.

(2) Includes bank and other borrowed debt and capital leases.
