SYLVAN LAKE, AB, May 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Lonestar West Inc. (TSXV: LSI) today announced its business performance for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

The Company has generated revenues of $4.0 million in the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to $1.4 million in the prior year quarter.

EBITDAC for the quarter was $839,562 compared to EBITDAC of ($104,465) in the prior year quarter.

President and CEO James Horvath commented, "Revenue and earnings have been meeting expectations due to several factors, such as the increased oilfield activity and improved utilization through the focus on expanding service areas. Our geographical expansion has positively affected our performance as our market size has increased and we have seen an improvement in our cash flow. Subsequent to this quarter end we have seen a slow down in revenues due to seasonality of oilfield service activity."
