Integra Group Notification of Final 2008 Financial Results

Moscow, 24 April 2009. Integra Group (LSE:INTE), will release its audited Consolidated Financial Statements for the twelve months ended 31 December 2008 on Thursday 30th April 2009.

Due to sharp changes in the global economic environment and recent significant volatility of financial markets, the results are expected to include several impairments, provisions and other extraordinary charges which will materially affect the reported financial results. These extraordinary charges are currently estimated at the following levels:

  • Goodwill impairment of US$99.1million in the Group’s Drilling, Workover, IPM and Technology Services segment, primarily as a result of the current low level of demand resulting in reduced future margins and profitability.
  • Accelerated amortization of long term customer and supplier relationships of US$53.7 million due to termination of such relationships in 2008.
  • Provisions for impairment of receivables and inventory values of US$52.0million.
  • Foreign exchange translation loss of US$20.4 million due to significant drop in the value of Russian Ruble and resulting effect on Group’s US$ denominated liabilities.

The audited financial statements may include numbers which will differ to some extent from those disclosed in this statement

Integra’s management will host a conference call for investors and analysts followed by a Q&A session.

The details of the conference call are:

Date: Thursday, 30 April 2009

Time: 17.00 Moscow / 14.00 London / 09.00 New York
