VERNAL, Utah, March 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superior Drilling Products, Inc. (NYSE MKT:SDPI), a provider of drilling products for the oil, natural gas and mining services industry, today announced preliminary results for the fourth quarter and full year 2014.
Fourth quarter 2014 revenue was $6.1 million, an increase of 5.2% from the third quarter 2014, on increased market penetration of the Company's innovative Drill-N-Ream (DNR) well bore conditioning tool. During the quarter the Company performed 198 reaming runs using the DNR which represents a monthly average of 66 runs, representing significant growth from the trailing third quarter. Revenue for 2014 was $20.0 million.
Troy Meier, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Superior Drilling Products commented, "Our innovative Drill-N-Ream has proven its value to many of our early adopting customers, and the sales team has effectively introduced the tool into new basins as evidenced by our increasing number of runs per month. While the current commodity price environment inevitably poses a near-term challenge, the DNR helps operators to reduce costs and increase efficiencies. Early indications in 2015 are demonstrating that our tool will continue to impress our customers and we believe it will become one of the go-to options to improve well economics.
"Superior Drilling is introducing two new product lines in Q1 2015, Strider and OrBit, that will improve economics for the drilling, completion and workover markets. The addition of these two new product lines together with the DNR product line will create more opportunities, enhancing our drilling tool rental and sales businesses."
The Company plans to provide full audited financial results before the market opens on Friday, March 27, 2015, and will host a conference call and webcast that day.
