Richard J. Alario

Thank you, Gary. Good morning. Keeping with our typical format today, I'll make a few introductory comments and then Trey Whichard, our CFO, will summarize our financial results and provide some financial guidance commentary. Then Trey Wilson, our COO, will provide an operational overview, and I'll come back and wrap up and take your questions.

In the second quarter, we generated earnings per share of $0.21, $0.01 a share above our revised guidance range. There were several factors that impact our second quarter results. Activity and pricing continue to decline in natural gas markets in the U.S. This has had a negative impact on our Fluid services Coiled Tubing and Edge Frac Stack and Well Testing businesses, primarily due to drilling rig activity declines in the Haynesville Shale. Last year, Coiled Tubing and Edge businesses in the Haynesville produced significant revenues at high operating income margins than this year due to lower activity and pricing pressure we've seen there to downsize these businesses and move the assets to other markets.

We ended last year with roughly 75% of our U.S. business derived from oil markets. Now due to activity trends and our own operation relocations, our U.S. split is roughly 80% oil and 20% natural gas. While we've seen a steady drop in activity in the gas markets, they appear to be stabilizing.

And while customer activity is still growing in the oil markets, that rate of growth is slow in response to the decline in oil prices this year. Also, significant additional service capacity have entered these markets. In fact, just over 50% of U.S. land drilling activities now concentrated in 3 major oil plays, the Permian Basin, Eagle Ford Shale and Gulf, [ph] compared to 34% approximately in 2011.
