Felix Lubashevsky, Integra Group’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented:

”In the first six months of 2012, compression of industry margins arising from increased operating costs and lack of meaningful price growth for our services coincided with negative volumes in several technology services.  As announced at the time of our first quarter results, in 1H2012 we have recognized a total of US$ 22.0 million of additional expenses and lost margins related to incidents on complex long-term drilling and workover projects. These incidents were the primary reason behind a significant deterioration of our margins and cash earnings but have been fully resolved with our customers resulting in the preservation of key relationships and further business won. Adjusted for one-time expenses we see a seasonal pickup in quarterly profitability in most services and expect these trends to continue into the third quarter.

Our strategic priorities for the remainder of 2012 and beyond are quality improvement, cash conversion, select capacity investment to capture current market growth and further cost optimization.”
