VERNAL, Utah, Oct. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Superior Drilling Products, Inc. (NYSE MKT:SDPI) (“SDP” or the “Company”), a designer and manufacturer of drilling tool technologies, today announced that its distribution partner, Drilling Tools International, Inc. (“DTI”) has exceeded its minimum requirement for tool orders of $2 million.
The initial distribution agreement signed in May 2016 required a minimum order of $1.5 million of Drill-N-Ream tools by September 30, 2016. The geographic area and minimum purchase requirements were expanded in August to include the entire U.S. and Canada with an additional $0.5 million of required tool purchases.
DTI exceeded its requirements, purchasing $2.3 million in tools as of the end of third quarter. And, DTI has ordered approximately an additional $580 thousand of tools in the first two weeks of October. DTI’s order levels reflect strong end-user demand for the tools.
Troy Meier, CEO of SDP commented, “The value of the Drill-N-Ream is clearly resonating with operators. We believe that by partnering with DTI, we are able to quickly capitalize on the necessity for operators to reduce their oil and natural gas production costs to compete effectively at current commodity prices. DTI has had our tool successfully tested in Canada and are adding sales personnel to their team to address the growing interest in the Drill-N-Ream throughout the U.S. and Canada, to ensure they meet their market share requirements to maintain exclusivity.”
