McCoy Corporation announces second quarter 2012 results07:00 EDT Thursday, August 02, 2012EDMONTON, Aug. 2, 2012 /CNW/ - McCoy Corporation ("McCoy" or "the Company") (TSX:MCB), a supplier of innovative products and services for the global energy industry, today announced its operational and financial results for the second quarter of 2012."This quarter's strong performance of McCoy's EP&S segment was driven by healthy customer demand, particularly in the international markets," said Jim Rakievich, President and CEO of McCoy. "Although our Mobile Solutions segment is facing a challenging market, we anticipate that the launch of two new EP&S products, the ramp-up of our new Rig Parts business, and sustained international drilling activity will generate solid results for the remainder of 2012."Operational HighlightsSince April 1, 2012, the Company has:Completed retrofitting part of its Edmonton plant, resulting in a state of the art, world class assembly and test facility that will produce the Torque Sub (weCATT) and WinCatt Torque Turn Management System;Commenced manufacturing of the weCATT, with expected delivery of 10 weCATT units in the third quarter of 2012;Progressed in the development of its new Iron Roughneck product, the weTORQ85. McCoy is ready to begin field-testing of the weTORQ85 and will commence manufacturing shortly thereafter;Prepared for the opening of a new technical service center in Houston, Texas, to better meet the equipment service needs of customers;Expanded the Broussard plant, which added 14,000 square feet of dedicated manufacturing space to the bucking unit product line to increase the number of units that can be produced;Secured manufacturing space for its new Rig Parts business line;Expanded the Drilling and Completions ("D&C") head office and center for continued innovation in Houston, Texas; andPrepared for the implementation of a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to integrate D&C operations.Financial Highlights Revenue for the second quarter of 2012 increased 6 percent to $41.1 million compared to $38.8 million for the second quarter of 2011. Strong backlog and high customer demand contributed to an increase in EP&S revenues of $6.3 million, which was offset by a decline in Mobile Solutions revenue of $4.0 million due to a reduction in market demand as pressure pumping customers decrease capital budgets.Gross profit for the second quarter of 2012 was $11.0 million, which is consistent with the comparative period in 2011. The decline in profitability was due to our Mobile Solutions segment being impacted primarily by unfavourable product mix and reduced margins on our sub-contractor revenue stream due to sub-contractor start-up issues. McCoy doesn't anticipate profitability in future quarters to be impacted to the extent that occurred during the three months ended June 30, 2012.EBITDAS1 decreased 25 per cent to $4.6 million ($0.17 per share), for the second quarter of 2012 when compared to 2011. Net earnings for the same period were $2.1 million ($0.08 per share), a 35 percent decrease when compared to the second quarter of 2011. Lower profitability of Mobile Solutions in combination with higher general and administration expense resulted in the decline.  McCoy continues to make investments in people and infrastructure to support long-term growth which will yield long-term returns for stakeholders.  As a percentage of revenue, general and administration expense is consistent for the six months ending June 30, 2012 as compared to 2011. McCoy plans to make additional investments to execute its strategy, with an anticipated increase in general and administration expense at the same percentage of revenue in the near term.  Once the strategy begins to generate returns, general and administration expense is expected to stabilize, and as a percentage of revenue, decline to more historical levels.As at June 30, 2012, McCoy had working capital of $42.8 million, including $17.6 million in cash and cash equivalents.Selected Quarterly Information($000 except per share amounts and percentages)  June 30, 2012  June 30, 2011  % Change          Total revenue  41,108  38,834  6Gross profit  10,958  11,022  (1) Energy Products and Services  9,311  7,150  30 Mobile Solutions  1,647  3,872  (57)Gross profit as % of revenue  27%  28%  (4) Energy Products and Services  35%  35%  - Mobile Solutions  11%  21%  (48)Net earnings  2,127  3,284  (35)Net earnings per share - basic and diluted  0.08  0.12  (33)EBITDAS1  4,572  6,105  (25)EBITDAS1 per share - basic and diluted  0.17  0.23  (26)Total assets  109,359  91,116  20Non-current liabilities  6,974  8,293  (16)Total liabilities  36,637  28,309  29 1EBITDAS and net cash are non-GAAP measurements. EBITDAS is defined as "earnings from continuing operations before impairment losses, interest, taxes, 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.Conference Call InformationMcCoy will host a conference call and webcast at 9:00 a.m. Mountain Time (11:00 a.m. Eastern Time) on August 2, 2012.
