Unit Corporation Reports 2012 Second Quarter And First Six Months Results

Unit Corporation (NYSE: UNT) reported a net loss of $19.3 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared to net income of $49.8 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011. Included in the second quarter 2012 results was a non-cash ceiling test write down of $115.9 million ($72.1 million after tax, or $1.50 per diluted share). The ceiling test write down was required to reduce the carrying value of the company’s oil and natural gas properties resulting from significantly lower commodity prices during the second quarter of 2012. Excluding the ceiling test write down, net income for the second quarter of 2012 would have been $52.8 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, a 6% increase over the second quarter 2011 (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures below). Total revenues for the second quarter of 2012 were $329.9 million (45% contract drilling, 40% oil and natural gas, and 15% mid-stream), compared to $291.5 million (40% contract drilling, 45% oil and natural gas, and 15% mid-stream) for the second quarter of 2011.

For the first six months of 2012, Unit reported net income of $33.1 million, or $0.69 per diluted share. For the same period in 2011, net income was $90.8 million, or $1.89 per diluted share. Excluding the effect of the second quarter 2012 ceiling test write down, net income for the first six months would have been $105.3 million, or $2.19 per diluted share, an increase of 16% over the same period in 2011 (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures below). Total revenues for the first six months of 2012 were $662.3 million (43% contract drilling, 40% oil and natural gas, and 16% mid-stream), compared to $538.9 million (40% contract drilling, 45% oil and natural gas, and 15% mid-stream) for the first six months of 2011.
