MONCTON, NB, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - Landdrill International Inc. (TSX.V:LDI) has released results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010.  The Company reports revenues of $7,567,000 which is an increase of $4,501,000 (147%) from 2009's comparable amount of $3,066,000.   The Company generated pre-tax net income of $581,000 as compared to 2009's pre-tax loss of $1,372,000 and the net income was $331,000, as compared to a net loss of $1,063,000 for 2009's comparable period.   

On a year to date basis the Company reports revenues of $13,750,000 which is an increase of $6,422,000 (88%) from 2009's comparable amount of $7,328,000.  The Company generated pre-tax net income of $1,165,000 as compared to 2009's pre-tax loss of $1,973,000 and the net income was $555,000, as compared to a net loss of $1,693,000 for 2009's comparable six month period. 

Ron Goguen Sr., the President and CEO of Landdrill said, "I am pleased to report back to back quarters of profit after experiencing the negative effects of the 2009 global slowdown on Landdrill's financial results.  While the profit is modest it is a significant improvement over 2009's comparable period.  The Company has benefited from a turnaround in commodity prices and the financial markets, and management has made significant business development initiatives over the last year which has all combined to substantially increase the demand for Landdrills' services.  The Company has also successfully re-financed its more significant loans that were otherwise maturing, resulting in a significant improvement to the Company's working capital position.  The Company now has 23 of their 37 drills active on contracts with commitments to have another 5 drills deployed shortly.  We are confident that Landdrill will continue to report improving results for the rest of 2010."
