CALGARY, Aug. 25 /CNW/ - Global Energy Services Ltd. ("Global Energy")
(GLK - TSX Venture), announces the Board of Directors have approved the
release of the June 30, 2008 financial reports.
Financial highlights to June 30, 2008
- Our production services segment had a second quarter income of
$31,158; cost recoveries of $50,824 were reported in the corporate
segment; which was offset by a loss of $405,133 in the communications
division. This resulted in an overall net loss of $323,151 for the
quarter ended June 30, 2008.
- On a six month basis, revenues in the communications segment have
declined by 43 percent over the comparable period in 2007. Expenses
of this segment have been reduced by a similar percentage, which
allows for a return to profitable operations as drilling activity
- On a six month basis, revenues in the production services segment
have increased by 27 percent over the comparable period in 2007. With
the slow down in drilling activity, new opportunities are surfacing
for optimizing production from existing wells using the Company's
pumping technology. The revenue would have been much stronger if not
for weather delays in second quarter. Based on current market demand
and recently announced pump order, we expect to have a very strong
third and fourth quarter for production services.
- The Company's working capital surplus at June 30, 2008 was
$1,873,093. All the costs associated with the 2006/07 proposed
acquisitions have been discharged or otherwise reflected in the
working capital surplus number. As a result, funds from operations
and available credit facilities should support continued growth in
the production services segment in 2008.
"Despite the second quarter being the traditional weak quarter, our
overall financial picture is improving and we have an adequate financial
foundation to capture the opportunities ahead," said Derek Begin, President
and CEO of Global Energy Services. "Our pumping solution is well positioned in
the North American market as we continue to prove its ability to work in an
ever increasing variety of oil and gas fields and basins. The fall drilling
season is shaping up to be busier and we anticipate significantly better
utilization rates on our communications equipment."
