CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2013) - New West Energy Services Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NWE) (the "Corporation") is pleased to announce the results for the Corporation for its third quarter ended January 31, 2013.
Revenue from continuing operations for the nine month period totaled $13,890,000. Net income from continuing operations for the nine month period totaled $1,580,000. The comparative numbers from continuing operations for the nine month period ended January 31, 2012 were $11,455,000 and $1,170,000. The increase in net income over the previous period is largely due to the recognition of a non-cash item of deferred tax recovery and a deferred tax charge for a net increase of approximately $600,000.
Total revenue of $13,890,000 was comprised of $7,570,000 from Environmental Services, $4,230,000 from Vacuum Services and $2,090,000 from Hauling Services. The Hauling Services division only commenced operation at the end of August in 2012, being the date Porterco Oilfield Services Inc. commenced operations.
