At the date of this press release MATRRIX had a total of 13 directional and horizontal systems available for deployment in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Manitoba. In addition, the Corporation continues to operate a drilling motor business in west Texas.

President Richard Ryan states, "We're making strong progress growing the MATRRIX brand, our revenue base, and our EBITDA. Our Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) all show significant period to period improvement, affirming our strategy and our model. Of primary importance is that our formula is being endorsed by MATRRIX clients. With financial strength anchored around a balance sheet that includes $11 million in cash, we'll remain disciplined in deploying additional capital, targeting strong returns as we execute our comprehensive approach to delivering horizontal and directional drilling technology and services in North America. I'm impressed (but not surprised) with the hard work and focus of all MATRRIX staff, and equally impressed with our ability to find opportunities and execute in a way that is clearly having an impact."

The Corporation's financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 will be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

This press release contains references to EBITDA. This financial measure is not a measure that has any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is therefore referred to as a non-GAAP measure. The non-GAAP measures used by the Corporation may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.

(i) EBITDA is defined as "income (loss) before interest, taxes, business acquisition transaction costs, reverse takeover adjustments, depreciation, stock based compensation expense, gains on disposal of property and equipment and foreign exchange." Management believes that in addition to net and total comprehensive income (loss), EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Corporation's principal business activities prior to consideration of how these activities are financed, how the results are taxed in various jurisdictions, or how the results are effected by the accounting standards associated with the Corporation's stock based compensation plan.

    Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended  
    September 30, 2012    September 30, 2012  
Income (loss) before income taxes and interest $  253,002  $  (251,046)  
Depreciation   335,085   820,668  
Share based payments   98,971   360,951  
Foreign exchange (gain)/loss   (17,032)   31,762  
EBITDA $  670,025 $  962,336  

 

MATRRIX is engaged in the acquisition and supply of horizontal and directional drilling technologies for the oil and gas industry in North America.
