Superior Drilling Products Provides Preliminary Second Quarter 2015 Revenue

VERNAL, Utah, July 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superior Drilling Products, Inc. (NYSE MKT:SDPI) ("SDP" or the "Company"), a provider of proprietary drilling products for the oil, natural gas and mining services industries, today announced preliminary revenue of $2.9 million for its second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

For the quarter, revenue from the Company's traditional refurbishment and other business was $1.1 million compared with $1.9 million in the trailing first quarter of 2015, an $800 thousand decline. Revenue from the rental and repair of the Drill-N-Ream™ (DNR) was $1.8 million compared with $2.2 million in the trailing first quarter. The Company performed a monthly average of 58 DNR runs in the second quarter compared with 62 monthly average runs in the trailing quarter. Average price per run was down 13.5% from the first quarter.

"Our preliminary revenue results for the second quarter were below our expectations as depressed oil prices have impacted our results more significantly than we had anticipated. We believe the DNR has maintained a solid level of runs given the dramatic reduction in rig count in the quarter, yet the cost per run was much lower from our efforts to get on rigs and from the discounts offered in bundling DNRs for applications where its used in both the vertical and the lateral section of the well bore," commented Troy Meier, CEO of Superior Drilling Products.

"Our database of evidence that our technology improves horizontal oil well economics continues to expand. We believe this enabled us to gain four new customers in the quarter and expand to a new basin with another customer. We expect this data and customer recognition will help us continue to penetrate the market as operators look to reduce costs and improve efficiencies."

Mr. Meier added, "We are taking measures to right size the organization and focus on the near term opportunities we have with the lineup of our current products and those nearing commercialization. We are also putting more discipline in our sales approach with a customer relationship management (CRM) system. We expect these efforts to drive improved financial performance in the second half of 2015."

SDP's product line includes the DNR, V Stream Advance Conditioning System and Dedicated Reamer Stringer. The Company plans to commercialize the Strider, a drill string stimulation tool and OrBit, a unique completion drill bit, in the second half of 2015 assuming current field testing is successful.

These preliminary results represent the most current information available to management, and remain subject to change. The Company's actual results, following the completion of the quarterly financial closing process and the outside auditor's financial review, may differ from these preliminary results.
