John Crisp, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Overall, the first quarter of this year ended on a positive note. The beginning was somewhat slow, but towards the second half, we experienced a modest increase in activity.
We were pleased to see revenue and gross profit stabilize in our well servicing segment relative to the fourth quarter of 2012. Activity levels for our coiled tubing units were similar to our conventional rig utilization. With the addition of the fifth spread, which arrived at the end of April, we have ample room to grow this service.
