Overview

"The company's second quarter results were consistent with the market's activity levels as customers pressed on at a steady pace," stated John Crisp, president and chief executive officer of Forbes Energy Services.

"We had a slight increase in revenue quarter over quarter in both our business segments, which we attribute to higher utilization from both existing assets and additions made in the quarter.

"Margin performance in our well servicing segment was the normal occurrence of pre-deployment expenses of new equipment, and in our fluid logistics segment, the result of our management's continued focus on operations and utilization. We look for the industry pace to be steady as we go into the second half of the year."
