Landdrill International Inc - Year-end Financial Results

MONCTON, NB, May 2 /CNW/ - Landdrill International Inc. (TSXV: LDI) ("Landdrill" or the"Company") has released results for the year-ended December 31, 2010.  The Company reports revenue of $34,677,000 which is an increase of $19,720,000 (132%) from 2009's comparable amount of $14,957,000.  A net loss of $216,000 was incurred in 2010, compared to the prior years' net loss of $4,487,000.

Ron Goguen Sr., the President and CEO of Landdrill said, "On an overall basis the 2010 year was a significant turnaround from 2009, however the final year-end results were disappointing as the fourth quarter margins were well below expectations and our historical average.  While disappointed with the fourth quarter margins, on a year to date basis the 2009 year resulted in overall gross margins of 26%, which is still in excess of many of our competitors.  The 2010 revenues exceeded the prior year on a quarter over quarter basis and we are seeing a continued increase in the demand for our services.  Our revenues for the first quarter of 2011 will establish a company high and when considering this demand and our extra capacity from the acquisition in Mexico and other organic drill additions - we believe that 2011 will produce significantly improved financial results."
