AKITA Drilling Ltd. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings and Operating Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014

AKITA Drilling Ltd. reported unaudited consolidated earnings and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the period, the company's net income for the period attributable to shareholders was $4,218,000 or $0.23 per share diluted on revenue of $46,715,000 compared to $10,150,000 or $0.56 per share diluted on revenue of $54,342,000 for the corresponding period in 2014. Income before income taxes was $5,935,000 against $13,426,000 a year ago. Funds flow from operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 was $14,059,000 compared to $17,665,000 in the corresponding quarter in 2014. Net cash from operating activities was $6,015,000 against $5,127,000 a year ago. Capital expenditures were $5,017,000 against $18,064,000 a year ago. Adjusted revenue decreased to $59,502,000 against $71,867,000 a year ago. The company achieved 1,635 operating days in the first quarter of 2015 compared to 2,112 operating days in the first quarter of 2014. Conventional rig activity declined 60% from the first quarter of 2014 which was partially offset by a 9% increase in pad rig activity. Overall, the 23% decline in operating days compared to the first quarter of 2014 had a significant impact on AKITA's financial performance in the first quarter of 2015. The lower activity level resulted in less revenue and ultimately lower net earnings and funds flow from operations. In addition to fewer operating days, the Company also experienced significant pressure on day rates throughout its operations when compared to the first quarter of 2014. However, the effect of downward day rate pressure was mitigated by the utilization of more pad rigs in the first quarter of 2015, which command higher day rates than the mix of rigs utilized in the first quarter of 2014.
