Logan Terminates Strategic Review Process

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 16, 2013) - Logan International Inc. (TSX:LII) ("Logan" or the "Company") announced today that the Board of Directors of Logan (the "Board") has elected to end the strategic alternatives review process that was announced on May 22, 2013.

With the assistance of external advisors, Logan conducted a strategic review of the alternatives available to Logan that included a canvass of prospective acquirers. During this process, the Board rejected several expressions of interest that were at a premium to the then current market value of Logan but did not represent sufficient value for the shareholders in light of the Company's continued revenue and earnings growth and debt reduction.

Gerald Hage, President and Chief Executive Officer of Logan, stated, "Logan continues to focus on running the business prudently and creating long term value for its shareholders. For 2013, Logan will achieve record revenues and profitability with expansion into new product lines and international markets for our products. As we look ahead, we expect 2014 to be another year of growth driven by expanding global use of our drilling and completion tools. Our management team is dedicated to enhancing shareholder value and expects to achieve our earnings and debt reduction targets for 2013 and 2014. Although the strategic review process has been formally terminated, the Logan Board of Directors will continue to review all potential alternatives that could maximize shareholder value."
