Revenues were $2.64 million for the first quarter of 2011, representing growth of 18% over revenues of $2.24 million for the same period in 2010 and 26% growth over fourth quarter 2010 revenues of $2.09 million.

Of significance on TexCom's balance sheet, current assets rose 45% from $1,975,762 to $2,867,042. Factors that positively impacted profitability for TexCom included a continuing recovery in the operating drilling rig count in the East Texas region and the fact that TexCom's selling, general and administrative expenses rose only 1% in Q-1 2011 vs. Q-1 2010.

Key Initiatives
Since the beginning of 2009, TexCom management has focused on four key initiatives; (i) bringing TexCom's ownership position in MB Environmental Services ("MBES") to 100%, (ii) assembling a pipeline of growth projects and acquisition candidates predominantly in the environmental services sector, (iii) adding engineering and remediation services to the NORM disposal capability at MBES and (iv) securing financing to expand environmental services and re-activate alternative energy prospects in Paraguay.

Management Comments
CEO and Chairman Lou Ross stated, "Again, we have proven our ability to effectively increase revenues while maintaining margins. The time for expansion to new oil & gas producing regions is now. New locations will allow us to replicate our proven operating model, providing services for the same World Class customer base that we now serve. The lack of traditional financing for companies such as ours has kept us from growing our company in the way that we would like, but looking forward, we expect to announce progress on our Key Initiatives."
