Logan International Reports Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 12, 2015) -

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

Logan International Inc. (TSX:LII) ("Logan" or the "Company") today reported the results for its second quarter and year-to-date period ended June 30, 2015.

Logan recorded revenue of $21.2 million in this year's second quarter and $42.6 million in the prior year's second quarter. For the three month period ended June 30, 2015, Logan lost $2.0 million, $(0.06) per diluted share, as compared to earnings of $2.8 million, $0.08 per diluted share in the prior year quarter. Modified EBITDA declined in this year's second quarter to $1.7 million from $8.7 million in last year's second quarter. Management utilizes Modified EBITDA to evaluate its operating results because this measurement eliminates the revenue and cost effects of significant noncash and nonrecurring items.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2015, the downhole tool segment, which includes Logan Oil Tools, Logan Completion Systems, Kline Oilfield Equipment, Logan SuperAbrasives and Scope Production Developments, recorded revenue of $20.1 million as compared to $39.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. For the current year quarter, this segment generated EBITDA of $3.3 million as compared to $10.0 million for last year's second quarter. For the second quarter of 2015, the rental tool segment, which includes Xtend Energy Services and Logan Jar, recorded revenue of $1.1 million and an EBITDA loss of approximately $108 thousand as compared to revenue of $2.8 million and EBITDA of $202 thousand in the prior year's second quarter.

Logan recorded revenue of $48.9 million in the six month period ended June 30, 2015 and $86.2 million in the six month period ended June 30, 2014. For the current year-to-date period, Logan lost $3.2 million, $(0.10) per diluted share, as compared to earnings of $5.7 million, $.17 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Modified EBITDA for the current year-to-date period decreased to $4.8 million from $18.0 million in the prior year-to-date period.

The downhole tool segment recorded revenue of $45.7 million and EBITDA of $7.9 million in the six month period ended June 30, 2015. This segment recorded revenue of $80.2 million and EBITDA of $20.0 million in the corresponding period in 2014. The rental tool segment recorded revenue of $3.3 million and EBITDA of $565 thousand in the current year-to-date period as compared to revenue of $6.0 million and EBITDA of $982 thousand in the prior year-to-date period.

David MacNeill, President and Chief Executive Officer of Logan, commented, "The second quarter was a very difficult quarter for all of our businesses and our team spent a great deal of time scaling down our operations in line with the expected activity levels."

Mr. MacNeill added, "Our operations were affected by the severity of the industry downturn and were worsened by the effects of spring breakup in Canada. As a result, we reported our weakest quarterly results since 2010. Logan Oil Tools' sales and order flow continued to be plagued by our customers' deferral of tool purchases, as they drew down their inventory. Sales of power swivels and stroking tools also declined due to our customers' constrained capital expenditure budgets. Logan's completions businesses and tool rental segment also reported drastically reduced operating results as North American drilling and completion activities sank to multi-year lows."

Looking forward, Mr. MacNeill stated, "We are managing our costs and believe that our cost reduction efforts in the second quarter will generate increased free cash flow for the remainder of the year. Fishing tool sales, orders and backlog have all improved in the last two months, as compared to earlier in the year. In addition, request for quotes on capital equipment tied to workover and recompletion activities increased late in the quarter. We have also received interest in, and several orders for, SuperAbrasive bearings from customers in the Middle East. We are guardedly optimistic for a slight recovery in activity in the second half of the year as Canada comes out of breakup and operators increase their workover budgets even though we do not believe oil prices will show significant improvement for at least two more quarters."

(1) This MD&A presents: (a) EBITDA as earnings before net finance cost, income tax expense (benefit), and depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), and (b) Modified EBITDA as EBITDA before acquisition accounting adjustments, transaction fees, share-based compensation and severance costs ("Modified EBITDA"). Neither of these measurements should be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, "net earnings (loss) for the period" 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; 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 EBITDA and Modified EBITDA with net earnings (loss) 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 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 and subsequently sold fixed assets acquired in business combinations. Transaction fees include professional and other fees incurred in connection with the Company's proposed business combinations, as well the Company's completed strategic review. Share-based compensation expense relates to amounts recognized from the granting of stock appreciation rights, stock options and restricted share units.

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