Forbes Energy Services Reports 2012 Second Quarter Results

"During the second quarter, equipment from dry gas markets transferred into the oil and liquids rich markets where the majority of our work is performed. We also observed start-up companies entering the fluids logistics market, some of which were able to attract some of our experienced workforce, causing additional pressure on utilization.

"We believe the increase in competitive pressure will continue through the balance of 2012. However we are taking the necessary steps to refocus our workforce and we feel that this action, coupled with our existing geographic footprint and our modern equipment will help stabilize our financial performance for the remainder of 2012.

"We have many positive events happening throughout the company, one of which is the delivery of our first coiled tubing spread late last month. Our initial performance in the field has been successful and we are moving towards solidifying long-term commitments for the first and remaining four units planned to be phased in by year end. Additionally, we will soon be launching our new fluid recycling business as we finalize field preparation of the unit."
