Superior Energy Services, Inc. Announces New Segment Reporting

HOUSTON, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Superior Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: SPN) announced today that it has realigned its segment reporting. As a result, beginning with the 2012 fourth quarter and full-year results (scheduled to be released Tuesday, February 26, 2013), the Company will report business segment information for four reportable segments as follows: Drilling Products and Services, Onshore Completion and Workover Services, Production Services and Subsea and Technical Solutions. The expansion from two to four reportable segments reflects separation of the former Subsea and Well Enhancement business segment into the Onshore Completion and Workover Services, Production Services and Subsea and Technical Solutions business segments. The Drilling Products and Services business segment is unchanged.

The Onshore Completion and Workover Services segment consists primarily of the Company's pressure pumping, well service rig and fluids management businesses. The Production Services segment consists primarily of the Company's coiled tubing, wireline, snubbing and remedial pumping businesses. The Subsea and Technical Solutions segment primarily consists of the Company's pressure control, completion tools, subsea construction, end-of-life services, marine technical services and production and sale of oil and gas.

Dave Dunlap, President and Chief Executive Officer of Superior, commented, "The composition of each segment better reflects our product and service offering throughout the life cycle of the well. We believe this new segment reporting format will provide greater clarity into the financial performance of our diverse portfolio of products and services, and alignment between business strategies and our operating results. In addition, we believe this format will make relative comparisons to our industry peers more visible and meaningful."
