The Corporation increased its total revenue by 41% to $37.8 million from $26.9 million of the same period of 2010 and its net earnings by 55% to $3.0 million from $1.9 million for Q3 of 2010.

EBITDAS is defined as "earnings from continuing operations before other non-recurring items, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation." EBITDAS is not considered an alternative to net earnings in measuring McCoy's performance. Net cash is defined as "cash on hand less the sum of current portion of borrowings, current portion of finance lease liabilities, borrowings and finance lease liabilities." EBITDAS and net cash do not have a standardized meaning and are therefore not likely to be comparable with similar measures used by other issuers. However, McCoy calculates EBITDAS and net cash consistently from period to period.McCoy's Energy Products and Services ("EP&S") and Mobile Solutions segments both performed well in the third quarter of 2011. Revenue for the EP&S segment increased by 14% to $21.7 million for the third quarter of 2011 from sales of $19.0 million for the same period of 2010, attributable mainly to higher worldwide and North American rig counts and increased spending in the drilling equipment market in these comparative quarters. Revenue in the Mobile Solutions segment increased by 103% to $16.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 from $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2010. This $8.2 million increase is primarily due to the continued recovery in unconventional oil and gas activity in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and the U.S. land market, from which the majority of the revenue for the Mobile Solutions segment is derived. Energy services, such as pressure pumping, has created a robust demand for service equipment.

According to Baker Hughes, the worldwide rig count has increased by 17% from Q3 of 2010 and the North American rig count has increased by 20% from Q3 of 2010. The outlook for global drilling activity continues to be positive due to the relative stability of oil prices. As the number of rigs working internationally and in North America is maintained or increases, McCoy expects demand for capital equipment will continue, which will be positive for both the EP&S and Mobile Solutions segments.New product development continues to be at the forefront of McCoy's strategic plans with several new pieces of drilling and tubular handling equipment expected to be introduced to the market in 2012 and 2013. This equipment will fill in our overall product line and push us closer to our goal of providing an integrated solution for our customers' needs.
