                    SMITH INTERNATIONAL, INC. REPORTS RECORD
                 EARNINGS OF $58 MILLION, OR 57 CENTS PER SHARE

         HOUSTON, Texas (January 28, 2005)... Smith International, Inc. (NYSE:
SII) today announced fourth quarter net income of $58.2 million, or 57 cents per
share, on revenues of $1.2 billion. Revenues and earnings improved on a
year-over-year and sequential quarter basis as increased exploration and
production spending favorably influenced both the oilfield and distribution
segments. Results for the comparable prior year quarter, which included a
three-cent charge associated with the Distribution operations, were $38.0
million on revenues of $1.0 billion - reflecting earnings growth of 53 percent.
On a sequential quarter basis, the Company reported the highest revenue growth
rate of the current cycle, with approximately half of the increase generated in
Canada. Earnings per share improved six cents, or 12 percent, over the third
quarter of 2004 primarily due to the higher Canadian business volumes. The
recovery in the U.S. deepwater market, which was effected by weather
disturbances during the third quarter, had a limited impact on the sequential
earnings improvement.

        The 2004 fiscal year results, excluding the impact of a $20.4 million
after-tax litigation charge recognized during the second quarter, were $202.9
million, or $1.98 per share. Including this charge, the Company reported
earnings of $182.5 million, or $1.78 per share, on revenues of $4.4 billion. For
the year ended December 31, 2003, the Company reported net income of $123.5
million, or $1.23 per share, on revenues of $3.6 billion.


         M-I SWACO's fourth quarter revenues totaled $597.2 million, six percent
above the third quarter of 2004 and 17 percent higher on a year-over-year basis.
The sequential quarter revenue growth was largely attributable to new contract
awards in the Europe/Africa region, including the North Sea and West Africa.
Moreover, drilling activity in the U.S. deepwater market, which was impacted by
weather-related disturbances during the September period, gradually resumed
during the fourth quarter resulting in higher sales of completion fluid
products. Compared to the prior year period, approximately three-quarters of the
revenue growth was generated in markets outside of North America, reflecting a
combination of increased activity levels and the impact of new contract awards.
Increased U.S. revenues also contributed to the year-over-year improvement as
lower sales volumes in the offshore market were more than offset by increased
demand associated with land-based projects.

         Smith Technologies' fourth quarter revenues totaled $138.1 million,
nine percent higher on a sequential quarter basis and 26 percent above the
December 2003 period. The sequential revenue increase was largely attributable
to the performance of the Western Hemisphere diamond bit operations, which
reported a 30 percent increase in revenues during a period in which underlying
activity levels grew seven percent. The sequential comparison was also impacted
by the inclusion of several large international export orders in the September
quarter. After excluding export sales, revenues were 11 percent above the
amounts reported in the third quarter of 2004 - significantly above the rate of
the corresponding activity increase. Year-over-year, the majority of the revenue
increase was generated in North America driven by higher diamond bit rental
volumes, demand for recent product introductions, including the Flex-Flo(TM)
design series of three-cone bits, and improved product pricing.

         Smith Services' revenues totaled $141.0 million, a 13 percent
improvement on a sequential quarter basis and 30 percent above the fourth
quarter of 2003. The majority of the sequential revenue growth was reported in
the Western Hemisphere, influenced by higher activity levels and increased
demand for new product developments, including the RHINO(R) Reamer downhole
tool. Although activity levels were comparable with the third quarter, Eastern
Hemisphere revenues grew nine percent on a sequential quarter basis driven by
increased Middle East remedial product sales. The majority of the year-over-year
revenue growth was generated in North America, reflecting increased demand for
remedial products, higher tubular sales volumes and the addition of the CanFish
operations acquired in July 2004.





         Wilson reported revenues of $341.4 million, 13 percent higher on a
sequential quarter basis and 34 percent above the prior year period. Increased
energy sector sales volumes, related to the improvement in Canadian activity
levels, and higher demand for tubular products accounted for the majority of the
sequential revenue growth. Year-over-year, revenue improvements were reported in
both the energy and industrial sectors of Wilson. Energy sector revenues grew 39
percent over the prior year quarter, reflecting the impact of new contract
awards and the higher level of North American drilling and completion activity.
The increase in industrial and downstream revenues, which rose 24 percent above
the prior year period, was primarily attributable to increased project business
in the petrochemical market.

         Commenting on the results, Chairman and CEO, Doug Rock stated, "Last
year was a record year for Smith in both revenue and earnings. The primary
driver for this performance was the 23 percent increase in 2004 annual revenues
over 2003. In 2005, improved product pricing and a favorable offshore drilling
product mix will be important components of our continued strong earnings growth
along with revenue improvements from heightened customer activity. Because
business demand is now stronger than originally anticipated, we've raised our
expectations for Smith's first quarter 2005 earnings to between 60 and 62 cents
per share."

         Loren Carroll, Executive Vice President, also noted that, "Despite the
significant growth experienced in our operations, which resulted in
approximately $235 million of incremental working capital investment during
2004, we still posted strong cash flow results last year. We also funded $92
million of share repurchases during 2004 - $38 million of which were acquired
during the fourth quarter. With our strong cash flow generation capabilities, we
were able to finance working capital needs, share repurchases and $72 million of
acquisitions last year while adding minimal debt."

         Smith International, Inc. is a leading worldwide supplier of premium
products and services to the oil and gas exploration and production industry,
the petrochemical industry and other industrial markets through its four
principal business units - M-I SWACO, Smith Technologies, Smith Services and
Wilson. The Company will host a conference call today beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Central to review the quarterly results. Participants may join the conference
call by dialing (706) 634-6555 and requesting the Smith International, Inc.

         Certain comments contained in this news release and today's scheduled
conference call concerning the anticipated financial results of the Company
constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private
Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are subject to the safe harbor
created by that Act. Whenever possible, the Company has identified these
"forward-looking" statements by words such as "anticipated", "expect",
"expectations" and similar phrases. The forward-looking statements are based
upon management's expectations and beliefs and, although these statements are
based upon reasonable assumptions, there can be no assurances that the Company's
financial results will be as estimated. The Company assumes no obligation to
update publicly any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new
information, future events or otherwise. For a discussion of factors, which
could impact the Company's results, review the Smith International, Inc. Annual
Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2003 as filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission.

         Non-GAAP Financial Measures. The Company reports its financial results
in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). However,
management believes that certain non-GAAP performance measures and ratios
utilized for internal analysis provide financial statement users meaningful
comparisons between current and prior period results, as well as important
information regarding performance trends. Certain information discussed in this
press release and in the scheduled conference call could be considered non-GAAP
measures. See the Supplementary Data - Schedule II in this release for the
corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the three-month
periods and years ended December 31, 2004 and 2003. Non-GAAP financial measures
should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's
reported results.
