UNIT CORPORATION REPORTS 2010 FOURTH QUARTER AND YEAR END RESULTS

Tulsa, Oklahoma . . . Unit Corporation (NYSE - UNT) reported net income of $43.7 million, or $0.92 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2010.  For the same period in 2009, net income was $28.5 million, or $0.60 per diluted share.  Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $252.6 million (39% contract drilling, 45% oil and natural gas, and 16% mid-stream), compared to $177.3 million (27% contract drilling, 51% oil and natural gas, and 21% mid-stream) for the fourth quarter of 2009.

For all of 2010, Unit reported net income of $146.5 million, or $3.09 per diluted share.  For the same period in 2009, Unit reported a net loss of $55.5 million, or $1.18 per diluted share.  The 2009 results included a noncash ceiling test write down of $281.2 million ($175.1 million after tax, or $3.70 per diluted share).  The ceiling test write down reduced the carrying value of Unit's oil and natural gas properties and was required because of significantly lower commodity prices existing at the end of the first quarter 2009.  Without the ceiling test write down, net income for 2009 would have been $119.6 million, or $2.52 per diluted share (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures below).

Total revenues for all of 2010 were $881.8 million (36% contract drilling, 45% oil and natural gas, and 18% mid-stream), compared to $709.9 million (33% contract drilling, 50% oil and natural gas, and 15% mid-stream) for the same period in 2009.


CONTRACT DRILLING SEGMENT INFORMATION

    The average number of drilling rigs used in the fourth quarter of 2010 was 70.9, an increase of 93% over the fourth quarter of 2009, and an increase of 8% over the third quarter of 2010.

    Per day drilling rig rates for the fourth quarter of 2010 averaged $16,570, up 13% (or $1,862) from the fourth quarter of 2009, and up 5% (or $756) from the third quarter of 2010.

    Average per day operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $7,559 (before elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit of $4.4 million).  This compares to $5,268 (before elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit and bad debt expense of $0.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2009, an increase of 44%, or $2,292. As compared to the third quarter of 2010 ($7,056 before elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit of $2.9 million) fourth quarter 2010 operating margin increased 7% or $504 - in each case with regard to the elimination of intercompany drilling rig profit see Non-GAAP Financial Measures below.  Included in the average operating margin amount for the fourth quarter of 2010 and 2009 was a per day amount of $31 and $619 for early termination fees resulting from the cancellation of long-term contracts.

            Larry Pinkston, Unit's Chief Executive Officer and President, said:  “We are pleased with the results that our contract drilling segment has been able to obtain.  The fourth quarter of 2010 was the sixth consecutive quarter in which we increased the average number of our working drilling rigs over the previous quarter.  As the industry has continued to transition to drilling horizontal or directional wells, we have been able to respond to that demand by refurbishing rigs or adding new drilling rigs.  Approximately 73% of our drilling rigs working today are drilling for oil or natural gas liquids and approximately 88% are drilling horizontal or directional wells.  During 2010, we refurbished and upgraded 30 drilling rigs and during 2011 we have plans to add five new drilling rigs to our fleet.  All five new drilling rigs are under long-term contracts and are 1,500 horsepower, diesel-electric drilling rigs.  On completion of these new drilling rigs, our rig fleet will total 126 drilling rigs.  Currently, 72 of our drilling rigs are under contract.  Long-term contracts (contracts with original terms ranging from six months to two years in length) are in place for 38 of the 72 contracted drilling rigs.  Of these contracts nine are up for renewal during the first quarter of 2011, 11 during the second quarter of 2011, six during the third quarter of 2011, nine during the fourth quarter of 2011, and three in 2012 and beyond.  These contracts do not include the five term contracts for the new drilling rigs.”

            Pinkston said:  “2010 was a transition year for us with regards to our drilling program as we continued to implement our strategy to focus on oil or NGLs rich prospects.  Getting wells online were delayed by difficulties in securing fracing services and connections to gathering systems.  During the latter part of the year, we were able to obtain these services and reduce the unusually large backlog of our well completions, especially in the Granite Wash and Marmaton plays.”

“We recently announced our total proved oil and natural gas reserves at December 31, 2010 were 622.2 Bcfe of natural gas, an 8% increase over our 2009 total proved reserves.  The reserve growth consisted of a 50% and 10% increase in oil and NGLs, respectively, while natural gas reserves were essentially unchanged.  Our production replacement for 2010 was 176%, with 158% through the drill bit.  The capital expenditure budget for 2011 is $415 million, an 11% increase over 2010.  Our preliminary annual production guidance for 2011 is approximately 66.0 to 68.0 Bcfe, an increase of 11% to 15% over 2010.”


 
MID-STREAM SEGMENT INFORMATION

            Pinkston said:  “Gas processed volumes, liquids sold volumes as well as gas gathered volumes all continued to increase and remained strong in the fourth quarter.  We recently announced the completion of the Lone Tree Gas Processing Plant, a 50 MMcf per day turbo-expander natural gas processing plant at our Hemphill Processing Complex in Hemphill County, Texas.  The completion of this new natural gas processing plant increases our Hemphill facility’s processing capacity to approximately 100 MMcf per day, with run rates expected at 70 to 80 MMcf per day by the middle of the second quarter.”

    “In connection with our Appalachian operations, we are currently constructing a 16-mile, 16" pipeline and related compressor station in Preston County, West Virginia, which will have a capacity of approximately 220 MMcf per day.  This pipeline project is on schedule to be completed by mid-2011.”


FINANCIAL INFORMATION
Unit ended the year with working capital of $41.1 million, long-term debt of $163.0 million, and a debt to capitalization ratio of 9%.  Under its credit facility, the amount available to be borrowed is the lesser of the amount the company elects as the commitment amount (currently $325 million) or the value of the borrowing base as determined by the lenders (currently $500 million), but, in either event, not to exceed the maximum credit facility amount of $400 million.


MANAGEMENT COMMENT
    Larry Pinkston said: “We are pleased with our 2010 fourth quarter and the positive momentum each of our business segments carries into 2011.  We will continue to focus our exploration operations on oil and natural gas liquids rich plays like the Granite Wash and Marmaton and will continue to refurbish and upgrade certain drilling rigs while adding new rigs to our fleet as we respond to the demand for horizontal drilling by exploration and production companies.  Our mid-stream segment will continue to grow with new pipeline projects, the expansion of existing facilities and exploring for additional opportunities in various basins throughout the country.”

_____________
(1) The company considers its cash flow from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities an important measure in meeting the performance goals of the company (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures below).
(2) Operating profit before depreciation is calculated by taking operating revenues by segment less operating expenses excluding depreciation, depletion, amortization and impairment, general and administrative and interest expense. Operating margins are calculated by dividing operating profit by segment revenue.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
 
We report our financial results in accordance with generally accepted account principles (“GAAP”). We believe certain non-GAAP performance measures provide users of our financial information and our management additional meaningful information to evaluate the performance of our company.

This press release includes net income excluding the effect of the impairment of our oil and natural gas properties, earnings per share excluding the effect of the impairment of our oil and natural gas properties, cash flow from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities and our drilling segment’s average daily operating margin before elimination of drilling rig profit.

Below is a reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered by themselves or a substitute for our results reported in accordance with GAAP.

 ________________ 
 

We have included the net income excluding impairment of oil and natural gas properties and diluted earnings per share excluding impairment of oil and natural gas properties because:
·  
We use the adjusted net income to evaluate the operational performance of the company.
·  
The adjusted net income is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts.
·  
The impairment of oil and natural gas properties does not occur on a recurring basis and the amount and timing of impairments cannot be reasonably estimated for budgeting purposes and is therefore typically not included for forecasting operating results.
