Oilseed processing profits rose to $192 million, up from $128.1 million a year before, due to improved margins in all regions, the company said.

Corn processing profit rose to $335.5 million, compared with $236.5 million a year ago. Increased ethanol and sweetener selling prices partially offset higher corn costs. Corn futures recently hit 10-year highs at the Chicago Board of Trade due to buying by investment funds and interest in corn-based ethanol.

Agricultural services profit rose to $122.8 million, up from $93.6 million a year before. Other segment profit rose to $116.7 million, up from $65.7 million a year earlier, due to improved financial results, the company said.

ADM shares closed at $32 on Wednesday and have fallen sharply from an all-time high of $46.70 in May due to declining crude oil prices and rising corn prices

Grey Wolf, Inc. Announces Record Operating Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2006
Monday February 26, 7:00 am ET

HOUSTON, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Grey Wolf, Inc. (Amex: GW - News; "Grey Wolf" or the "Company") reported net income of $52.5 million, or $0.24 per share on a diluted basis, for the three months ended December 31, 2006 compared with net income of $38.2 million, or $0.17 per share on a diluted basis, for the fourth quarter of 2005. Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2006 were $240.3 million compared with revenues for the fourth quarter of 2005 of $204.1 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2006, Grey Wolf reported record net income of $220.0 million, or $0.98 per share on a diluted basis, on revenues of $945.5 million. This compares with net income of $120.6 million, or $0.54 per share on a diluted basis, on revenues of $697.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2005. The 2006 results include a second quarter after-tax gain related to insurance proceeds of $2.7 million ($0.01 per diluted share) along with after-tax gains of $7.6 million ($0.03 per diluted share) from the sale of five rigs formerly held for refurbishment and other spare equipment.

"2006 was the second straight year in which the Company set record levels of revenue, net income, and EBITDA," commented Tom Richards, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Year-over-year the Company's net income rose by 82% and revenues were up 36%. EBITDA for 2006 totaled $432.0 million, up 63% from 2005. Not only did we break the record for all of these financial metrics, but we also improved our year-over-year safety recordable incident rate by 31% at the same time that man hours worked increased by almost 10%."

Mr. Richards continued, "Three of the six new 1,500 horsepower rigs we ordered in 2006 have been delivered and are working. One of the remaining three new rigs is scheduled for delivery later in the first quarter of 2007, one in the second quarter, and the last rig is expected by the end of the third quarter. All six of the new rigs, as well as the 17 refurbishments completed over the last two years are supported by long-term contracts under which the Company fully expects to recover the cost of the capital expended during the initial contract term. After deployment of these rigs, our fleet will total 121 rigs. Our continuing strategy is to add new rigs to our fleet only when supported by term contracts."

As of February 26, 2007, the Company is marketing 118 rigs, with 83 of those working under daywork term contracts, 23 working under spot market daywork contracts, eight working under turnkey contracts and four rigs are idle. Grey Wolf averaged 110 rigs working in the fourth quarter of 2006. This compares with an average of 107 rigs working in the third quarter of 2006 and 108 rigs working during the fourth quarter of 2005.

The Company renewed 14 of 19 term contracts that were scheduled for renewal in the fourth quarter of 2006, and to date has renewed two of the fourteen first quarter 2007 renewals and one second quarter renewal. The Company has approximately 21,600 days, or an average of 59 rigs, contracted for all of 2007 and 6,800 days or an average of 19 rigs committed in 2008.

Mr. Richards concluded, "There is currently some excess capacity in the land drilling market and newly-built rigs are coming into the market. With this additional capacity, we have seen a softening in some spot market dayrates over the past two months. While there are differences depending on market and rig size, the average decline in dayrates is between 5% and 15%. Grey Wolf's extensive portfolio of term contracts and our premium quality equipment coupled with our skilled rig crews buffer our exposure to the recent erosion in spot market dayrates and the effects of extra capacity."

Capital expenditures totaled $197.2 million in 2006, including $65.1 million during the fourth quarter. Based upon the remaining payments for the new rig purchases and 2007 rig activity, capital expenditures for 2007 are projected to be $130.0 million to $140.0 million.

The Company reported total earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") of $105.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2006, compared to $108.9 million for the previous quarter and $81.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2005. On a per-rig-day basis, EBITDA was $10,384 for the fourth quarter of 2006, $11,046 for the third quarter of 2006 and $8,212 for the fourth quarter of 2005. Turnkey EBITDA per rig day in the fourth quarter was $7,444 and daywork EBITDA per rig day totaled $10,626.

Although turnkey EBITDA per rig day for the fourth quarter of 2006 was lower compared to the previous quarter, our turnkey business added $61.2 million, or 14%, of total Company EBITDA for 2006 and outpaced daywork EBITDA per rig day by 51% for the year.

Under the previously announced plan that authorizes the repurchase of up to $100 million of Grey Wolf common stock, the Company repurchased 9.3 million shares during 2006 at a total cost of $65.1 million. In the first quarter of 2007 to date, the Company repurchased an additional 1.2 million shares for $8.0 million.

During the first quarter of 2007, the Company expects to average 108 to 110 rigs working with six to eight of these rigs performing turnkey services. In addition, average daywork revenue per day is expected to increase by $200 to $300 as the Company's new rigs enter the market and the effect of higher term contract dayrates from fourth quarter term contract renewals is realized. Depreciation expense of approximately $20.7 million, interest expense of approximately $3.5 million and an effective tax rate of approximately 37% are expected for the first quarter of 2007.




I risultati sono buoni anche se leggermente al di sotto delle stime di 0,26. L'outlook rassicurante.
Tuttavia non mi aspetto nulla di buono dalla seduta odierna. Certo che vedere saipam che vola verso nuovi massimi e questa al palo che tartta a multipli 6 volte piu' bassi è quantomeno irritante.
Questa è l'america e cosi sia.
 
Grey Wolf, Inc. Announces Record Operating Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2007
Wednesday May 2, 6:00 pm ET

HOUSTON, May 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Grey Wolf, Inc. (Amex: GW - News; "Grey Wolf" or the "Company") reported net income of $58.6 million, or $0.27 per share on a diluted basis, for the three months ended March 31, 2007 compared with net income of $54.2 million, or $0.24 per share on a diluted basis, for the first quarter of 2006. Revenues for the first quarter of 2007 were $242.0 million compared with revenues for the first quarter of 2006 of $222.9 million. The first quarter 2006 results included an after tax gain of $5.9 million ($0.03 per diluted share) for the sale of five rigs formerly held for refurbishment.

"Grey Wolf surpassed previous highs for net income and net income per share in the first quarter reflecting the benefits of our term contract portfolio and our new rigs entering the market," commented Tom Richards, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Four of the six new 1,500 horsepower rigs we ordered in 2006 generated profits during the first quarter. The fifth rig began working in the second quarter and the sixth rig is scheduled for delivery during the third quarter."

Mr. Richards continued, "Daywork and turnkey EBITDA per day reached levels not previously achieved in the Company's history. EBITDA from our daywork operations increased 21% over the first quarter of 2006 and contributed to record quarterly EBITDA of $116.9 million."

The Company's total earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") of $116.9 million in the first quarter of 2007 rose from $105.0 million for the fourth quarter 2006 and $106.3 million for the first quarter 2006. On a per-rig-day basis, EBITDA was $11,780 for the first quarter of 2007, $10,384 for the fourth quarter of 2006 and $10,866 for the first quarter of 2006. Turnkey EBITDA per rig day in the first quarter of 2007 was $21,536 and daywork EBITDA per rig day totaled $11,131.

Mr. Richards added, "The Company also is pleased to announce that we have signed a three year term contract for two 3,000-horsepower rigs to go to work in Mexico for a major international oilfield services company. Operations are expected to commence under the contract late in the third quarter this year."

Mr. Richards concluded, "The addition of newly built rigs into the land drilling market has created some excess rig capacity which has led to a decline in spot market dayrates. This downward pressure could continue as additional new rigs enter the market, however, Grey Wolf's portfolio of term contracts and our premium quality equipment coupled with our skilled rig crews have helped buffer our exposure to the erosion in spot market dayrates. Because of strong commodity prices for both oil and natural gas, we believe there will be demand for additional land rigs later this year."

Today, the Company is marketing 120 rigs, with 75 of those working under daywork term contracts, 25 working under spot market daywork contracts, 7 working under turnkey contracts and 13 rigs are idle. Grey Wolf averaged 110 rigs working in the first quarter of 2007. This compares with an average of 110 rigs working in the fourth quarter of 2006 and 109 rigs working during the first quarter of 2006. Under daywork term contracts, the Company has approximately 15,700 days, or an average of 57 rigs, contracted for the remaining three quarters of 2007 and 7,900 days or an average of 22 rigs committed in 2008. Current leading edge bid rates have declined by approximately 15% to 25% from six months ago and now range from $16,000 to $22,000 per day without fuel or top drives.

Capital expenditures totaled $67.4 million in the first quarter of 2007. Based upon the remaining payments for the new rig purchases and 2007 rig activity, capital expenditures for 2007 are projected to be $140 million to $150 million.

Under the previously announced plan that authorizes the repurchase of up to $100.0 million of Grey Wolf common stock, the Company purchased 1.6 million shares during the first quarter of 2007 at a total cost of $10.8 million. In total, 10.9 million shares have been bought under this plan in the past year for a total cost of $75.9 million.

During the second quarter of 2007, the Company expects to average 101 to 104 rigs working with seven to nine of these rigs performing turnkey services. Average daywork revenue per day is expected to decrease by $1,200 to $1,500 as excess rigs in the market continue to pressure spot market dayrates. Depreciation expense of approximately $22.1 million, interest expense of approximately $3.5 million and an effective tax rate of approximately 37% are expected for the second quarter of 2007.

Grey Wolf has scheduled a conference call May 3, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. CT to discuss first quarter 2007 results. The call will be web cast live on the Internet through the Investor Relations page on the Company's website at:

Risultati ottimi considerato che il mercato si attendeva un ralllentamento degli utili. Credo che 12$ siano alla portata di questo titolo se non di piu' ma è chiaro che li raggiungera' con gradualita' data la natura non speculativa del titolo. Non è eslcuso cmq un take over da parte di qualche big del comparto.
