Point Roberts, WA - June 7, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors reports on oilfield services /frac water treatment stocks and how a small Houston company, HII Technologies, (OTCQB: HIIT) is beating the odds competing against the big players dominating the sector.
According to a recent research report from Jeffries, 'Oil Services & Equipment-Over-Hauling Frac Water; U.S. Oilfield Water Recycling Review”, bigger companies in the space have the edge.
"We believe water recycling in the oil patch should grow significantly in the U.S. over the next few years, perhaps with some regulatory push. Recycling lowers well-cost vis-à-vis fresh water and enables activity in drought-prone regions. That is a boon to all of OFS except water haulers, but we think the complexity of fracking with recycled water gives the edge in pumping services to (NYSE:HAL), (NYSE:BHI) and (NYSE:SLB) over smaller peers. "
The Houston Business Journal reported on Jeffries findings on May 23 rd, in an article entitled, ' Recycled frac water: Big oilfield service companies have the edge', just days after the small Houston-based company reported its earnings.
Clearly the market is large and there is room in the frac water treatment sector for the smaller companies to thrive as companies like Schlumberger Limited (NYSE: SLB) can't or chose not to do it all.
In mid-May 2013, HII Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: HIIT) reported financial results for the first quarter ending March 31. First quarter 2013 revenues were $2,609,773, which generated a gross profit margin of $532,292. These revenues consisted of AES Water Solutions as well as initial revenue contribution from South Texas Power and the AES Safety Services divisions, which were launched in late December 2012 and January 2013 respectively. AES Water Solutions generated revenues of $536,371 for the comparable period in 2012. Accordingly, on a pro forma basis, this represents revenue growth for AES of more than 380% for the first quarter of 2013.
Brent Mulliniks, President of AES Water Solutions stated, "We experienced good growth in the first quarter from both increased demand with existing customers and from expanded operations. AES incurred additional expenses as it established new areas of operations in the Permian Basin and the Cline Shale in West Texas as well as the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas." Mr. Mulliniks continued, "New revenues are now being generated as a result of these expenditures."
"All three divisions, Water, Power and Safety, exceeded their revenue targets for the first quarter 2013," said Matthew Flemming, CEO of HII Technologies.
