Layne Christensen Reports Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter And Year-End Results Of Operations

Interest expense increased to $4.3 million for FY2013 from $2.4 million last year due primarily to higher borrowing on our revolving credit facilities to fund capital expenditures, acquisitions and working capital needs.

Other income, net of $5.8 million for FY2013 declined from $9.7 million in FY2012, and consisted primarily of a combination of gains on sales of surplus equipment, recognition of the previously deferred gain on the sale of an operating facility in California and an adjustment of the expected earnout liability on a prior acquisition.

An income tax benefit for continuing operations of $8.3 million (an effective rate of 43.1%) was recorded for FY2013, compared to an income tax expense for continuing operations of $9.6 million (on a loss of $43.5 million, producing an effective rate of negative 22.1%). As noted above, there was no tax benefit recorded on the majority of the impairment charges in FY2012, greatly distorting the effective rate.

The decline in revenues at Water Resources for Q4 FY2013 was primarily due to lower revenues from our specialty drilling operations. The increase in revenues for the year was due mainly to a project beginning in Ethiopia, better performance in the Southeast and Midwest Groups due to drought-related projects, and revenues generated on new contracts.
