HOUSTON, TX, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Tesco Corporation ("TESCO" or the "Company") today reported net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 of $7.4 million or $0.19 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2010, and a net income of $4.3 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2011. Revenue was $117.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, compared to revenue of $85.5 million for the comparable period in 2010 and $105.6 million for the first quarter of 2011. The results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 includes a positive impact of $2.1 million, net of tax, related to a refund from the Mexican tax authorities.
Julio Quintana, TESCO's Chief Executive Officer, commented "Our top drive business continued to perform in the second quarter. Top drive revenue grew from the first quarter due to incremental unit sales and we ended the quarter with backlog of 67 units. Today, our backlog stands at 72 units. Further, we delivered the highest quarterly top drive rental revenue in our history. Our proprietary tubular service business is improving and we performed a record 914 CDS jobs during the quarter. With current market conditions and the momentum in the business today, we believe that TESCO is well positioned to deliver future profitable growth."

Q2 2011 Financial and Operating Highlights
Top Drives Segment
Revenue from the Top Drive segment for Q2 2011 was $78.6 million, an
increase of 12% from revenue of $70.4 million in Q1 2011, primarily due
to an increase in the number of units sold during the current
quarter. Revenue for Q2 2010 was $53.5 million.
Top Drive sales for Q2 2011 included 24 units (21 new, 2 consignment and
1 used), compared to 18 units (17 new and 1 consignment) sold in Q1
2011 and 13 units sold in Q2 2010 (10 new and 3 used).
Operating days for the Top Drive rental fleet were 7,039 for Q2 2011
compared to 6,870 in Q1 2011 and 5,524 for Q2 2010. The improvement
from Q1 2011 was primarily due to an increase in rental activity
throughout our operating units, particularly in North America, Russia
and Latin America and the result of additional units added to our
rental fleet in Q2.
Revenue from after-market sales and service for Q2 2011 was $13.0
million, an increase of 7% from revenue of $12.2 million in Q1 2011,
and 20% from revenue of $10.8 million in Q2 2010 due to additional
market demand in Q2 2011.
Our Top Drive operating margins were 28% in Q2 2011, a decrease from 30%
in Q1 2011 and an increase from 24% in Q2 2010. The decrease from Q1
2011 is primarily due to the mix of new top drive models delivered in
At June 30, 2011, Top Drive backlog was 67 units, with a total value of
$75.1 million, compared to 43 units at March 31, 2011, with a total
value of $57.4 million. This compares to a backlog of 22 units at June
30, 2010, with a total value of $28.4 million. Today, our backlog
stands at 72 units.
Tubular Services Segment

an increase of 8% from revenue of $32.3 million in Q1 2011. Revenue
was $29.2 million in Q2 2010. Revenue increased from prior periods due
to increased demand from customers in the shale resource regions in the
United States and Canada. We performed a record 914 proprietary casing
running jobs in Q2 2011 compared to 819 in Q1 2011 and 783 in Q2
2010. We remain focused on converting the market to running casing
with our proprietary CDS™ technology.
Operating income in the Tubular Services segment for Q2 2011 was $2.5
million, compared to $1.6 million in Q1 2011 and $1.6 million in Q2

CASING DRILLINGTM revenue in Q2 2011 was $3.9 million compared to $2.9 million in Q1 2011
and $2.8 million in Q2 2010. The increase from prior periods is due to
completion of jobs under multi-well contracts, primarily outside of
Operating loss of $3.7 million in our CASING DRILLINGTM segment for Q2 2011 was up from $3.1 million in Q1 2011 and $2.8 million
in Q2 2010. The increase is due to our increased investment in
personnel and other infrastructure costs.
Other Segments and Expenses
Corporate costs for Q2 2011 were $9.2 million, compared to $9.3 million
for Q1 2011 and $8.6 million in Q2 2010. Total selling, general and
administrative costs in Q2 2011 were $11.6 million compared to $11.7
million in Q1 2011 and $11.9 million in Q2 2010. Corporate costs
increased due to increased property taxes and increased incentive stock
Research and engineering costs for Q2 2011 of $2.4 million decreased
from $2.9 million in Q1 2011 and increased from $1.9 million in Q2
2010. Specifically, we have increased our personnel and incurred
additional costs for engineering, prototype construction and training
compared to the same period in 2010. We continue to invest in the
development, commercialization and enhancements of our proprietary
Our effective tax rate for Q2 2011 was 29% compared to 35% in Q1 2011
and 32% in Q2 2010.
At June 30, 2011, cash and cash equivalents were $41.3 million, compared
to $60.6 million at December 31, 2010. In the first half of 2011, we
used cash to purchase and build capital equipment and to purchase
inventory to meet the needs of our increasing top drive backlog.
Total capital expenditures were $12.1 million in Q2 2011, compared to
$7.3 million in Q1 2011 and $11.6 million in Q2 2010. We project our
total capital expenditures for 2011 to be between $55 million and
$65 million, based on current market conditions.

|Non-GAAP Measure - Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below)|
|(in millions of U.S. $)||Quarter 2||Quarter 1||
Six months ended
|Net income under U.S. GAAP||$||7.4||$||0.7||$||4.3||$||11.7||$||2.9|
|Income tax expense (benefit)||3.0||0.3||2.7||5.7||1.4|
|Depreciation and amortization||9.2||8.8||9.3||18.5||17.6|

|Stock compensation expense (non-cash)||1.8||1.5||2.5||4.3||3.0|
Our management reports our financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP but evaluates our performance based on non-GAAP measures, of which a primary performance measure is Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA consists of earnings (net income or loss) available to common stockholders before interest expense, income tax expense, non-cash stock compensation, non-cash impairments, depreciation and amortization and other non-cash items. This measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies and is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for operating income, net income or loss, cash flows provided by operating, investing and financing activities, or other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP.
We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because:
it is widely used by investors in our industry to measure a company's
operating performance without regard to items such as net interest
expense, depreciation and amortization, which can vary substantially
from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book
value of assets, financing methods, capital structure and the method by
which assets were acquired;
it helps investors more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of
our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our
capital structure (primarily interest) and asset base (primarily
depreciation and amortization) and actions that do not affect liquidity
(stock compensation expense and non-cash impairments) from our
operating results; and
it helps investors identify items that are within our operational
control. Depreciation and amortization charges, while a component of
operating income, are fixed at the time of the asset purchase in
accordance with the depreciable lives of the related asset and as such
are not a directly controllable period operating charge.
Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA:
as a measure of operating performance because it assists us in comparing
our performance on a consistent basis as it removes the impact of our
capital structure and asset base from our operating results;
as one method we use to evaluate potential acquisitions;
in presentations to our Board of Directors to enable them to have the
same consistent measurement basis of operating performance used by
to assess compliance with financial ratios and covenants included in our
credit agreements; and
in communications with investors, analysts, lenders, and others
concerning our financial performance.
