Increased Energy Products and Services (EP&S) manufacturing throughput contributed to the significant revenue growth in the third quarter.Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $14.2 million, which was an increase of $3.4 million, or 32%, from the comparative quarter. The increase in gross profit is a result of both increased EP&S revenue and gross margin percentages.  Mobile Solutions continues to experience a decline in profitability from lower market fundamentals, including a shift towards lower margin products.Net earnings for the quarter were $4.2 million ($0.16 per share), a 41% increase when compared to the third quarter of 2011.EBITDAS1 for the third quarter of 2012 increased $1.5 million, or 26%, to $7.5 million from $5.9 million in the same quarter of 2011.In both periods, strong results in the EP&S segment were offset by declining profitability in the Mobile Solutions segment and an increase in corporate costs. McCoy continues to invest in strategic hires, infrastructure and new product development to support its long-term growth initiatives. The most significant of these investments are being made in the Drilling and Completions division and at Corporate. These investments are driving higher general and administrative expenses as well as sales and marketing expenses and will continue to do so for the near term.  Once a global management team and international infrastructure are put into place, McCoy anticipates these costs will stabilize and, as a percentage of revenue, decline to more historic levels.As at September 30, 2012, McCoy had working capital of $43 million, including $15.5 million in cash and cash equivalents.Selected Quarterly Information($000 except per share amounts and percentages)   Sept 30, 2012  Sept 30, 2011  % Change           Total revenue   48,410  37,815  28Gross profit   14,184  10,742  32 Energy Products and Services   12,723  7,813  63 Mobile Solutions   1,461  2,929  (50)Gross profit as % of revenue   29%  28%  4 Energy Products and Services   38%  36%  6 Mobile Solutions   10%  18%  (44)Net earnings   4,236  3,010  41Net earnings per share - basic and diluted   0.16  0.11  45EBITDAS1   7,451  5,905  26EBITDAS1 per share - basic and diluted   0.28  0.22  27Total assets   113,531  101,849  11Non-current liabilities   6,640  8,116  (18)Total liabilities   38,583  34,376  121EBITDAS 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 November 8, 2012.
