Superior Drilling Products Inc. and Drilling Tools International, Inc. Announce Exclusive Distribution Agreement for Drill-N-Ream® Well Bore Conditioning System

VERNAL, Utah and HOUSTON, May 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superior Drilling Products, Inc. (NYSE MKT:SDPI) (“SDP”), a designer and manufacturer of drilling tool technologies, and Drilling Tools International, Inc. (“DTI”) announced today the execution of a distribution agreement, establishing DTI as the exclusive distributor of SDP’s patented Drill-N-Ream® well bore conditioning system in North American onshore and offshore markets, excluding the Rocky Mountain region. The Drill-N-Ream is a unique reaming assembly technology that both widens and conditions the well bore during the drilling process, eliminating the requirement for a dedicated reaming run.



DTI is a leading provider of downhole tools for the onshore and offshore drilling industry. With nine locations in North America and four international locations, DTI has been providing products and services to the world’s most prominent oilfield services and exploration companies since 1984.

Troy Meier, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SDP, commented, “This partnership with DTI provides our Drill-N-Ream and the Superior Drilling Products brand exceptionally larger exposure throughout North America, especially in regions in which we have little market presence. DTI has a world-class management team, a strong reputation for their high quality, responsive customer service and is well known as a provider of high-quality oilfield equipment. We believe their excitement about the Drill-N-Ream validates the capabilities of our technology, and we are thrilled to be teaming up with them.”

Wayne Prejean, President and Chief Executive Officer of DTI, added, “We expect our customers to adopt the Drill-N-Ream technology quickly and that it will be a successful addition to our product and service offerings. We have seen how well this bore hole conditioning system operates. It immediately addresses our customers’ requirements to reduce the cost of hydrocarbon extraction. With our well-established sales force and significant number of solid customer relationships, we anticipate quickly increasing market penetration of Superior Drilling Products’ advanced drilling solution.”

In exchange for the distribution rights, DTI has agreed to purchase a minimum operating fleet of
Drill-N-Ream tools in 2016. DTI’s exclusive rights to provide the Drill-N-Ream to customers in the distribution territory are dependent upon achievement of certain sales objectives. The agreement is a multi-year agreement and will remain in effect subject to the performance targets being met during the term of the agreement.
