(All reported amounts are in US dollars unless otherwise noted)
Logan International Inc. (LII.TO) ("Logan" or the "Company") today announced the financial results for its fourth quarter and 2012 fiscal year. Revenues in the fourth quarter were $45.4 million as compared to revenues of $37.3 in the fourth quarter of 2011. Net earnings from continuing operations were $4.8 million or $0.14 per diluted share, as compared to $1.6 million, or $0.05 per diluted share in last year's fourth quarter. This year's fourth quarter Modified EBITDA, as defined in the financial table below, increased to $10.1 million from $7.2 million in last year's fourth quarter.
In 2012, the Company's revenues increased to $171.1 million from $135.5 million, or by 26%, and earnings from continuing operations increased to $25.5 million, $0.75 per diluted share, from $8.9 million, $0.26 per diluted share. During the quarter ended September 30, 2012, the Company recognized a gain of $11 million, $0.33 per diluted share, from the change in the fair value of the contingent consideration relating to the acquisition of Xtend Energy Services Inc. ("Xtend"). In 2012, Modified EBITDA increased to $37.7 million from $29.7 million in 2011.
The Company completed the acquisition of Kline Oilfield Equipment, Inc. ("Kline") and Scope Production Development ("Scope") in the fourth quarter of 2011 and the acquisition of Xtend in March 2012. Therefore, the fourth quarter and year end results for 2011 include the Kline and Scope acquisitions from the respective acquisition dates. The fourth quarter and year end results for 2012 include the Xtend transaction from the date of its acquisition.
Gerald Hage, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with the Company's fourth quarter operating results. We saw continued strength in Logan Oil Tools fishing and stroking tools, Logan Completion Systems recorded our first sales into China and we benefitted from the contributions from both Scope and Xtend. We are especially pleased with the increase in Modified EBITDA because each one of our operating entities contributed to the increase. We are also pleased with the full year operating results as Modified EBITDA increased to $37.7 million from $29.7 million, or by 27%. The improvement in our 2012 operations was due to organic growth and to recently-completed acquisitions."
Fiscal year 2012 highlights include:
- Completion of the acquisition of Xtend.
- Expansion of the Logan Oil Tools footprint to Latin America with the opening of a sales location in Bogota, Colombia.
- Geographic expansion by Logan Completion Systems Inc. to China in late 2012.
- Increased international sales of Dennis Tool Company cutters to Russian and Canadian customers.
- Repurchase of 146,300 Logan common shares in open market transactions under our normal course issuer bid.

|(1)||The Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") presents: (a) EBITDA as earnings before net finance cost, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), and (b) Modified EBITDA as EBITDA before acquisition accounting adjustments, transaction fees, share-based compensation payments, certain non-cash purchase accounting adjustments and severance costs. Neither of these measurements should be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, "net earnings from continuing operations" or "cash flow from continuing operating activities" as determined in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("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.|

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 that are not controlled at the operating management level. The contingent consideration expense consists of earnout payments made to former shareholders of Source Energy Tool Services, which were contingent on the former shareholders' continued employment with Logan International and the achievement of certain post -closing operating results. The contingent consideration gain is the change in fair value of expected earnout payments to the former owners of Xtend based on post -closing operating results. The acquisition accounting adjustments reverse the effect of the increase or step-up in cost basis of inventories acquired in a business combination. The transaction fees include the professional and other fees incurred in connection with the acquisitions in 2011 and 2012. The share-based compensation payments relate to non-cash share-based compensation expense related to the Company's stock option and restricted share unit plans, as well as stock appreciation rights.
