Current quarter revenue increased $2.1 million (13%) over the prior quarter and increased $1.7 million (10%) over the same period in the prior year.  The increase is primarily due to improved activity levels of drilling and well service in Western Canada.  The increased activity levels have resulted in increased demand for new equipment, services and supplies.

Current quarter gross profit increased $2.7 million (555%) over the prior quarter and was consistent with the same period in the prior year.  The Company continues to focus attention on improving gross profit results in its manufacturing business units.  Beginning in Q1, the Company implemented lean manufacturing initiatives and strengthened project management processes.  Gross profit percentages improved in the current quarter to 12.2% from a negative 3% gross profit percentage realized in the previous quarter.

Current quarter EBITDAS increased $2.6 million over the prior quarter and is primarily due to the improvement in gross profits realized.

Current quarter net income increased $1.9 million over the prior quarter and is primarily due to the improvement in gross profits realized.

Industry expectations for Western Canada for 2011 are expected to be stronger than activity experienced in 2010.  The Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors (CAODC) have forecast the number of wells to be drilled (on a completion basis) for 2011 to be 13,128 which is an improvement of approximately 20%.  The Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC) have forecast the number of wells to be drilled (on a rig released basis) for 2011 to be 12,950, which represents a slight increase over 2010.  There is an increasing focus on oil based drilling as natural gas prices remain low.

It is expected that new rig builds for use in Western Canada during 2011 will be sporadic and management believes that continued diversification into international markets will provide overall revenue growth.  Hyduke continues to actively market its products and services to international markets in the Russian Federation, India, South America, North Africa, Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.  While the project decision making cycle is longer on international work, active quoting continues on a significant number of international opportunities.  In 2009 and 2010, Hyduke saw its international revenues representing a significant portion of its total revenues.  It is expected that the volume and proportion of international revenue will continue as these international relationships are further developed.

The increased levels of industry activity experienced in Q1 and forecast for the remainder of 2011 are also anticipated to result in a positive impact on Hyduke's Life Cycle Management businesses such as repair and maintenance, inspections and certification, and consumables.  Additionally, the Company continues to focus on increasing market share through marketing Hyduke's Life Cycle Management and Single Source Supplier platforms to customers.  These platforms benefit customers by offering continued support throughout the useful life of their equipment and by offering a wide array of consistent, reliable services from a single source.

Management recognizes that we continue to operate in a weak natural gas driven market here in Western Canada.  Continued weakness in the general economy and weakness in natural gas pricing will require a continued focus on cost control in both capital and operating budgets for companies in our industry sector.  Management is prepared for these challenging conditions.  We are very actively developing markets outside of Western Canada and expect to build upon our historical successes.  Operationally, we continue to focus on cost control, realizing on vertical integration opportunities and prudent cash management and investment.  Specifically, we have identified a need for improved manufacturing efficiencies on larger projects and are very active implementing lean manufacturing concepts onto the floor.  Hyduke's strong working capital position and low debt load in relation to equity will be a influencing factor in allowing the Company to pursue viable financing alternatives.

Hyduke continues to be confident that its strategic plan considers current and expected market conditions and that strategic growth will continue to be achieved through increased products and services and increased penetration into international markets.
