Ridgeline Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

65% Revenue Increase

CALGARY, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. ("Ridgeline" or the "Company") (TSXV: RLE, OTCQX: RGDEF, FSE: RL7) an energy services and water treatment technology company, today announced the financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2013 ending September 30, 2012.

Tony Ker, CEO of Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. "We are pleased to announce a 65% increase in second quarter revenues for 2013 ($5.3 million) compared to second quarter 2012 ($3.4 million). Compared with the first quarter revenues of 2013 ($3.4 million) the second quarter revenue is up 56% ($5.3 million). Furthermore, the first quarter 2013 loss of $2.98 million has been reduced by $1.43 million to $1.55 million for the second quarter 2013. This compares with a loss of $0.03 per share in the first quarter 2013 to a $0.01 per share loss in the second quarter 2013.

Moreover, included in the net loss of $1.55 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 are non-cash charges of approximately $0.93 million pertaining to the amortization of intangible assets and property, plant, and equipment, and $0.24 million pertaining to non-cash stock based compensation expense. These non-cash expenses total $1.17 million. Cash used in operations before the effect of working capital changes is $0.38 million

I am very proud to report that all of our operating divisions are now cash flow positive, and our water division has doubled revenues, quarter over quarter.

The Company has continued to invest in water treatment facilities, manufacturing capacity, and installation capability. We are now at a stage where all the components necessary to grow the company are in place. Our business continues its rapid growth by focusing daily on execution. Our annual revenue run rate of our waste water treatment facilities continues to grow and is now approaching a $10 million run rate. Our Santa Fe Springs property continues its aggressive growth and we look for growth in our oil and gas segment, with long term contracts now in place."

"Excitement is building in our oil and gas segment due to the signing of a five year contract by our long time major oil and gas customer in Texas. Our contract calls for minimums of 2,500 barrels per day, and our Leonard Shale location will greatly exceed that minimum. We also look to launch systems in the Red Hills Texas area and in Western Pennsylvania in the coming year. Our continued research is showing that the oil and gas industry as a whole is slowly tipping in favor of broad based water recycling. While slowly developing, our long term view is for higher demand and higher prices for Ridgeline water systems, and water management, which includes significant storage opportunities."

Ridgeline Environment is on track for over $11.0 million dollars of revenue in 2013 and improved profitability. Ridgeline GreenFill will have added another treatment site at Youngstown in Alberta and is expected to grow steadily. The GreenFill wet waste water treatment capability pioneered at Red Cliff will add significant growth to GreenFill revenues for each of the now 5 GreenFill sites.

Balance Sheet

The Company's balance sheet was highlighted by an increase in its cash balance to $7.8 million, compared to $4.6 million at the beginning of the year. Total equity also increased to $41.6 million from $34.6 million at the beginning of the year.

Outlook

Ridgeline expects the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 revenues to be in the range of $6 million to $6.5 million, an increase of 10% to 20% from the third quarter of the previous fiscal year.  Continued increases in revenues are also expected in the fourth quarter. The growth in revenues is expected to be largely driven by the Company's water treatment segment, specifically operations at its Santa Fe Springs, California waste water treatment facility.
