Xtreme Drilling and Coil Services Announces Second Quarter 2013 Operating and Financial Results and Election of New Board Member

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/02/13 -- Xtreme Drilling and Coil Services ("Xtreme" or the "Company") (TSX:XDC) announces summary results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. It is anticipated that filing will take place on SEDAR of the Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis on Friday, August 2, 2013.

Highlights - Q2 2013

--  Adjusted EBITDA was $16.8 million for the second quarter. This was a
    decrease of 12% over the previous quarter and an increase of 119% over
    the second quarter of 2012. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA in the
    quarter was due to Canadian seasonality and extremely wet weather in
    North Dakota which resulted in a higher number of stand-by and moving
    days than the first quarter. The decrease was mitigated by US XSR which
    had higher utilization and an increase in operating margin. 
--  Revenue was $53.2 million in the second quarter of 2013 or a decrease of
    2% over the previous quarter. The decrease in revenue for the quarter
    was a function of fewer operating days. Revenue per operating day was
    essentially flat at approximately $27,900. 
--  The Company had 1,911 operating days, or 38 fewer days, in the second
    quarter of 2013, than the first quarter of 2013. This resulted in a
    utilization rate of 78% for the fleet of 21 XDR drilling rigs and 7 XSR
    coiled tubing units.
    The drilling segment achieved utilization of 85% on 1,621 operating
    days. This is comprised of a 92% utilization rate in the US XDR fleet
    and 41% for the Canadian XDR rigs. For the quarter, the coil services
    segment achieved utilization of 53% on 290 operating days. This is
    comprised of a 99% utilization rate on the two XSR units in Saudi Arabia
    and a 30% utilization rate on the four available XSR units in the US. In
    the US only two units were actively marketed until the company deployed
    a third XSR unit during the last week of June. The utilization on the
    two active XSR rigs was 60% for the quarter. The fourth XSR unit is
    anticipated to be deployed later in 2013. 
--  Net Income of $0.2 million, less amount attributable to non-controlling
    interest of $0.3 million, for net loss attributable to the owners of the
    parent of $0.1 million for the second quarter of 2013, or $.00 per fully
    diluted share. This is net of a foreign exchange loss of $3.3 million
    during the quarter. Excluding this charge net income, would have been
    approximately $3.5 million or $.04 per share. 
--  The Company paid the remaining $5 million on the HSBC demand note during
    the quarter and paid down an additional $6.4 million of the operating
    line of credit, part of the Company's $150 million revolving line of
    credit. Net debt at quarter end was $128 million in Canadian Dollars
    ($121.7 million in USD) which is inclusive of $4.0 million in debt held
    in the Saudi Arabian joint venture. At quarter end all of the Company's
    debt was denominated in US dollars and translated for financial
    reporting purposes to Canadian Dollars. Xtreme exited the quarter with
    working capital of $30 million and a funded debt to EBITDA ratio of
    2.16, which is well under the credit facility covenant level of 3.00.
    Capital expenditures totaled $9.1 million for the second quarter. 
--  The Company received extensions on the two XSR units operating in Saudi
    Arabia for a two month period, with a two month renewal option, until
    such time as the pending long term contract is finalized. It is expected
    that the new contract will be completed and executed within the next 30
    days. However, the increase in rates has been accepted by the customer
    and went into effect on July 28, 2013. In addition, the Company is
    currently in discussions to purchase the remaining 20% interest in the
    Saudi Arabian joint venture.

Excerpt from Management's Discussion and Analysis

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013


During the second quarter of 2013 the Company continued to focus on improving financial and operating performance. Utilization in the US XDR drilling fleet remained strong at 92%. It is anticipated that the only idle US rig will begin work by the end of August. This should increase the utilization for the US drilling fleet in the third quarter. Along with this we anticipate slightly higher repair and maintenance expenses in the third quarter related to preparing the rig for work. The core US drilling markets of the Bakken and greater DJ Basin remain active as rig counts have increased by 12% and 27% respectively in 2013. We have a number of contracts coming up for renewal in late 2013 and early 2014 but due to the fact that our entire US drilling fleet is operating in these two active markets we are confident in our ability to roll or reposition our expiring contracts. Currently, two of the three XDR rigs that were up for renewal in the third quarter have been extended into early 2014. As new budgets are approved at year end we are optimistic that these rigs will be re-contracted beyond their current term.

In Canada the three XDR rigs that operated in the second quarter had a 41% utilization rate which was significantly higher than the CAODC industry average of 18%. The Canadian market continues to face head winds and as such we anticipate that utilization in our Canadian XDR division will be in the 70-75% range over the second half of the year. Margins remain under pressure based on lower day rates. During the second quarter revenue per operating day was down by 30%. We anticipate it will bounce back in the second half of the year but below 2012 levels.

The US XSR business had an increase in utilization and operating margin during the second quarter. The division set new records for reach with 2 5/8 inch coiled tubing in the Eagle Ford by completing wells with horizontals in excess of 10,400 feet with total measured depth of 20,400 feet. We have now demonstrated that with Xtreme technology customers can make it to the toe of the longest reach laterals that are being drilled in the Eagle Ford. Due to this we have begun to clearly differentiate our service offerings from commoditized 2 inch coiled tubing competitors. We are excited about the market and potential to put our fourth unit to work in later in 2013.

The Saudi XSR business maintained strong utilization and margins during the second quarter. The current contract, which was a two year contracts with a 1 year renewal, finished up after quarter end with impressive operational performance for the customer. With that, the units were extended for two months while the longer term extensions are finalized. A new rate structure became effective with the recent renewals and is expected to increase operating margins. Management is currently pursuing new opportunities in the region.

In the second half of 2013 management will continue to focus on de-leveraging the balance sheet and maximizing operating performance and cash flow. This should provide Xtreme the flexibility to pursue opportunities in the ultra-deep long reach re-entry and completion market with our leading edge patented coil tubing technology in 2014.
