CALGARY, Aug. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Petrowest Corporation ("Petrowest") (TSX:PRW) announced today its consolidated financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014.

Rick Quigley, Chief Executive Officer, stated that "the financial results for the second quarter have historically been the weakest quarter of the year due to seasonal conditions.  However, despite these conditions and the fact that road bans came off later in the year compared to the prior year, the Company still managed to generate revenues of $55.4 million for the quarter, an increase of $6.1 million over the second quarter of 2013.  Adjusted EBITDA came in at $3.0 million for the quarter, a decrease from the $4.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. This decrease is primarily due to increased fuel and operating personnel costs, significant one time non-recurring business development costs and lower margins relating to the subcontractor work on the Highway 43 project. Also contributing to the lower Adjusted EBITDA were repair and maintenance costs (approximately $0.7 million over the comparable quarter in 2013) which were incurred in preparing our equipment for the third quarter, which is usually our most active. Even with the lower Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter, our first half of the year results were still considerably ahead of the comparable period of 2013". Mr. Quigley further stated that "the Company was excited to complete the acquisition of Enviro-Mulch Land Clearing Solutions Ltd. during the quarter.  This vertically integrated acquisition truly allows Petrowest to be the 'first in' for oilfield and general construction services, while adding another highly qualified team to the Petrowest group".

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

In the three months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013, the Company:

  • Reported revenue of $55.4 million, an increase of $6.1 million compared to the same quarter in 2013,
  • Reported Adjusted EBITDA of $3.0 million compared to $4.1 million for the same quarter in 2013,
  • Reported Adjusted EBITDA margin of 8.8% compared to 11.3% for the same quarter in 2013,
  • On May 27, 2014, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Enviro-Mulch Land Clearing Solutions Ltd.

In the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013, the Company:

  • Reported Adjusted EBITDA of $14.1 million compared to $10.4 million for the same period in 2013,
  • Reported Adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.1% compared to 10.9% in the same period in 2013,
