NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)


1.     Description and Basis of Presentation

Description

Steel Excel Inc. (“Steel Excel” or the “Company”) is primarily focused on capital redeployment and identification of new business operations in which it can utilize its existing working capital and maximize the use of the Company’s net tax operating losses (“NOLs”) in the future. The identification of new business operations includes, but is not limited to, the oilfield services, sports, training, education, entertainment, and lifestyle businesses. During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, the Company acquired two sports-related businesses (Baseball Heaven and The Show) and one oilfield services business (Rogue Pressure Services). During the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, it acquired two additional oilfield services businesses (Eagle Well Services and Sun Well Service). The Company currently operates in these two reportable segments, but may add other segments in the future depending upon acquisition opportunities to further redeploy its working capital.

Basis of Presentation

In the opinion of management, the accompanying Condensed, Consolidated Financial Statements (“Condensed Financial Statements”) of Steel Excel and its wholly-owned subsidiaries have been prepared on a consistent basis with the December 31, 2011 audited financial statements. The Condensed Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with the regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and, therefore, omit certain information and footnote disclosures necessary to present the statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and are considered unaudited and condensed. The December 31, 2011 Condensed Balance Sheet was derived from audited financial statements. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, which was filed with the SEC on March 13, 2012.

The Company’s Condensed Financial Statements include the accounts of Steel Excel and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts have been eliminated in consolidation.

Reverse/Forward Stock Split

At the close of business on October 3, 2011, the Company effected a reverse split (the “Reverse Split”) immediately followed by a forward split (the “Forward Split” and together with the Reverse Split, the “Reverse/Forward Split”). At the Company’s 2011 annual stockholders meeting, its stockholders approved a proposal authorizing the Board of Directors (the “Board”) to effect the Reverse/Forward Split at exchange ratios determined by the Board within certain specified ranges.

The exchange ratio for the Reverse Split was 1-for-500 and the exchange ratio for the Forward Split was 50-for-1. As a result of the Reverse Split, stockholders holding less than 500 shares (the “Cashed Out Stockholders”) were entitled to a cash payment for all of their shares. All remaining stockholders following the Forward Split (the “Remaining Stockholders”) were also entitled to a cash payment for any fractional shares that they would otherwise have received. The cash payment that each Cashed Out Stockholder or Remaining Stockholder was entitled to receive was based upon such stockholder’s pro rata share of the total net proceeds received in the sale of the aggregated fractional shares by the Company’s transfer agent at prevailing prices on the open market.

All shares outstanding and per share information for the previous financial periods being reported have been adjusted to reflect the Reverse/Forward Split.

2.     Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Our significant accounting policies have not changed from those presented in Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.
 
 
7

 
 
Effective January 1, 2012, the Company adopted the provisions of Accounting Standards Update, or ASU, No. 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220) Presentation of Comprehensive Income, or ASU No. 2011-05, and began presenting the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income in two separate but consecutive statements. The provisions of ASU No. 2011-05 are required to be adopted retroactively. As this guidance provides only presentation requirements, the adoption of this standard did not impact our results of operations, cash flows, or financial position.

In September 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU No. 2011-08, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350). ASU 2011-08 allows entities to first assess qualitatively whether it is necessary to perform the two-step goodwill impairment test. If an entity believes, as a result of its qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, the quantitative two-step goodwill impairment test is required. An entity has the unconditional option to bypass the qualitative assessment and proceed directly to performing the first step of the goodwill impairment test. ASU 2011-08 was effective for the Company’s first quarter of 2012. The Company performs its annual goodwill impairment test during the fourth quarter. The Company does not believe adoption of this standard during the fourth quarter of 2012 will have an impact on its consolidated results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.

There were no additional accounting pronouncements recently issued in the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, which are applicable to the Company or may be considered material to the Company. For a complete discussion of the impact of recent accounting pronouncements, please refer to Note 2 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

3.     Acquisitions

On February 9, 2012, the Company acquired the business and assets of Eagle Well Services, Inc., which after the transactions operated as Well Services Ltd. (“Well Services”) for an aggregate purchase price of $48.1 million in cash. Well Services engages in the business of workover rig well servicing, including down hole well maintenance and workover, down hole well repairs, well completions, well recompletions, well drill outs and clean outs, and well reentry. Well Services is included in the Company’s oilfield services reporting segment.

The Company accounted for this acquisition as a business combination and the total cash consideration of $48.1 million has been allocated on a preliminary basis to the net assets acquired based on their respective estimated fair values at February 9, 2012 as follows:
 
   
Amount
 
   
(in thousands)
 
       
Property and equipment
  $ 23,842  
Intangible assets
    14,300  
Accrued expenses
    (137 )
Total net identifiable assets
    38,005  
         
Goodwill
    10,126  
         
Net assets acquired
  $ 48,131  
 
The intangible assets acquired consist of customer relationships, which are being amortized on an accelerated basis over the estimated useful life of ten years. The $10.1 million goodwill arises from the growth potential the Company sees for Well Services, along with expected synergies with the Company’s current oilfield services businesses, and is expected to be deductible for tax purposes. The acquisition-related costs for the purchase of Well Services included in “Selling, general and administrative” expenses in the Condensed Statement of Income were $0.2 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012. The Company is in the process of completing its assessment of the fair value of net assets acquired from the Well Services acquisition. Therefore, the fair values presented are provisional pending completion of the final valuation of the net assets.

On May 31, 2012, the Company completed its acquisition of SWH, Inc. (“SWH”), a subsidiary of BNS Holding, Inc. (“BNS”). SWH’s sole business is Sun Well Service, Inc. (“Sun Well”), which is a provider of premium well services to oil and gas exploration and production companies operating in the Williston Basin in North Dakota and Montana. Sun Well is included in the Company’s oilfield services reporting segment.

Pursuant to the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement, the Company acquired all of the capital stock of SWH for an acquisition price aggregating $62.7 million. The aggregate acquisition price consisted of the issuance of 2,027,500 shares of the Company’s common stock (valued at $27 per share, the closing price on May 30, 2012) and cash of $7.9 million. Affiliates of Steel Partners Holdings L.P. (“Steel Partners”) owned approximately 40% of the Company’s outstanding common stock and 85% of BNS on May 31, 2012.

As a result of the acquisition, Steel Partners beneficially owns approximately 51.1% of the Company’s outstanding common stock. The Company and BNS each appointed a special committee of independent directors to consider and negotiate the transaction because of the interest of Steel Partners in each company.

The Company accounted for this acquisition as a business combination and the total acquisition price has been allocated on a preliminary basis to the net assets acquired based on their respective estimated fair values at May 31, 2012 as follows:
 
   
Amount
 
   
(in thousands)
 
       
Cash
  $ 3,561  
Accounts receivable
    7,233  
Prepaid expense and other current assets
    782  
Property and equipment
    29,787  
Identifiable intangible assets
    27,300  
Other long-term assets
    714  
Accounts payable
    (1,036 )
Accrued expenses and other current liabilities
    (6,074 )
Long-term debt
    (16,000 )
Capital lease obligations
    (1,622 )
Deferred tax liabilities
    (5,510 )
Total net identifiable assets
    39,135  
         
Goodwill
    23,529  
         
Net assets acquired
  $ 62,664  
 
The $27.3 million intangible assets acquired consist of customer relationships and a trade name, which will be amortized on an accelerated basis over their respective estimated useful lives of ten and five years, respectively. The $23.5 million goodwill arises from the growth potential the Company sees for Sun Well, along with expected synergies with the Company’s current oilfield services businesses, and is expected to be non-deductible for tax purposes. The acquisition-related costs for the purchase of SWH included in “Selling, general and administrative” expenses in the Condensed Statements of Income were $1.2 million for six-month period ended June 30, 2012. The Company is in the process of completing its assessment of the fair value of net assets acquired from the SWH acquisition, including but not limited to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets, a phantom stock liability and deferred income taxes. Additionally, due to the relatively low non-affiliate trading volume of the Company’s common stock, the Company is also in the process of evaluating the fair value of the stock issued as consideration in the acquisition. Therefore, the fair values presented are provisional pending completion of the final valuation of the net assets and non-cash consideration.

As of June 30, 2012, the total unamortized stock-based compensation expense related to non-vested stock options, net of estimated forfeitures, was $0.1 million and this expense is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted-average period of 1.3 years.

Restricted Stock: Restricted stock awards and restricted stock units (collectively, “restricted stock”) were granted under the Company’s 2004 Equity Incentive Plan and the 2006 Director Plan. As of June 30, 2012, there were 812 shares of service-based restricted stock awards and 18,250 shares of restricted stock units outstanding. The cost of restricted stock, determined to be the fair market value of the shares at the date of grant, is expensed ratably over the period the restrictions lapse or as specified in the grant agreements.

A summary of activity for restricted stock units as of June 30, 2012 and changes during the six-month period then ended is as follows:

Non-vested restricted stock units at each period included shares to certain non-employee directors in which vesting will occur immediately if the relationship between the Company and the non-employee director ceases for any reason. These non-vested shares were recognized and fully expensed as stock-based compensation in the Condensed Statements of Income at the date of grant or the date of modification.

All restricted stock units from prior to December 31, 2011 were awarded at the par value of $0.001 per share (adjusted to $0.01 per share to reflect the Reverse/Forward Split). As of June 30, 2012, the total unamortized stock-based compensation expense related to non-vested restricted stock that is expected to vest, net of estimated forfeitures, was immaterial.

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company measures and recognizes stock-based compensation expense for all stock-based awards made to its employees, directors and consultants based on estimated fair values using a straight-line amortization method over the respective requisite service period of the awards and adjusted it for estimated forfeitures. In addition, the Company applies the simplified method to establish the beginning balance of the additional paid-in capital pool related to the tax effects of employee stock-based compensation, which is available to absorb tax shortfall.

Stock-based compensation expenses included in the Condensed Statements of Income for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and July 1, 2011 were as follows:

The stock-based compensation expense in the above table does not reflect any significant tax expense, which is consistent with the Company’s treatment of income or loss from its United States operations. For the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and July 1, 2011, there were no income tax benefits realized for the tax deductions from option exercises of the stock-based payment arrangements. In addition, there were no stock-based compensation costs capitalized as part of an asset in the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and July 1, 2011.

5.     Marketable Securities

The Company’s investment policy has historically focused on three objectives:  to preserve capital, to meet liquidity requirements, and to maximize total return. The Company’s investment policy established minimum ratings for each classification of investments when purchased and investment concentration is limited to minimize risk. The policy also limited the final maturity on any investment and the overall duration of the portfolio. During February 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors executed a written consent permitting the Company to invest up to $10 million in publicly traded companies engaged in certain oilfield servicing, energy services, and related businesses, which is an exception to the Company’s investment policy.

In June 2012, the Board established an Investment Committee, which was formed to develop investment strategies and set the Company’s investment policies with respect to the Company’s cash. The Investment Committee is authorized, among other things, to invest the Company’s excess cash directly or allocate investments to outside managers for investment in equity or debt securities, provided that the Investment Committee may not invest more than $25 million in any single investment or with any single asset manager without the Board’s approval. Given the overall market conditions, the Company regularly reviews its investment portfolio to ensure adherence to its investment policy and to monitor individual investments for risk analysis and proper valuation.

The gross realized gains for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 were immaterial. Sales of marketable securities resulted in gross realized losses of $0.2 million and $0.3 million during the three-month and six-month periods ended July 1, 2011, respectively. The gross realized losses for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 were immaterial.

The Company’s investment portfolio consists of both corporate and government securities that generally mature within three years. The longer the duration of these securities, the more susceptible they are to changes in market interest rates and bond yields. As yields increase, those securities purchased with a lower yield-at-cost show a mark-to-market unrealized loss. All unrealized losses are due to changes in interest rates and bond yields. The Company has considered all available evidence and determined that the marketable securities in which unrealized losses were recorded in the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and July 1, 2011 were not deemed to be other-than-temporary. The Company holds its marketable securities as available-for-sale and marks them to market.

6.     Fair Value Measurements

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received for selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The accounting standard surrounding fair value measurements establishes a fair value hierarchy, consisting of three levels, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.

Financial Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

The Company utilizes levels 1, 2 and 3 to value its financial assets on a recurring basis. Level 1 instruments use quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities, which include the Company’s cash accounts, short-term deposits and money market funds as these specific assets are liquid. Level 1 instruments also include United States government securities, government agencies, and states and municipalities, as these securities are backed by the federal or state governments and traded in active markets frequently with sufficient volume. Level 2 instruments are valued using the market approach, which uses quoted prices in markets that are not active or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities and include mortgage-backed securities, corporate obligations and asset-backed securities as similar or identical instruments can be found in active markets. Level 3 is supported by little or no market activity and requires a high level of judgment to determine fair value, which includes the Company’s two venture fund investments. The Company periodically monitors its two venture capital funds and records these investments within “Other long-term assets” on the Condensed Balance Sheets based on quarterly statements the Company receives from each of the funds. The statements are generally received one quarter in arrears, as more timely valuations are not practical. The statements reflect the net asset value, which the Company uses to determine the fair value for these investments, which (a) do not have a readily determinable fair value and (b) either have the attributes of an investment company or prepare their financial statements consistent with the measurement principles of an investment company. The assumptions used by the Company, due to lack of observable inputs, may impact the fair value of these equity investments in future periods. There were no changes in the fair value estimates from December 31, 2011. In the event that the carrying value of its equity investments exceeds their fair value, or the decline in value is determined to be other-than-temporary, the carrying value is reduced to its current fair value, which is recorded in “Interest and other income, net,” in the Condensed Statements of Income. At June 30, 2012, there were no significant transfers that occurred between any of the levels of the Company’s financial assets.

The Company’s other financial instruments include accounts payable and accrued and other liabilities. Carrying values of these financial liabilities approximate their fair values due to the relatively short maturity of these items. The related cost basis for the Company’s 3/4% Convertible Senior Notes due December 22, 2023 (the “3/4% Notes”) at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was approximately $0.3 million on both dates. Although the remaining balance of its 3/4% Notes is relatively small and the market trading is very limited, the Company expects the cost basis for the 3/4% Notes of approximately $0.3 million at June 30, 2012 to approximate fair value. The Company’s convertible debt is recorded at its carrying value, not the estimated fair value. The Company may seek to make open market repurchases of the remaining balance of its 3/4% Notes within the next twelve months. Accordingly, these notes are reflected as a current liability in the accompanying Condensed Balance Sheets.

Non-Financial Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Non-Recurring Basis

The Company had no non-financial assets measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

7.     Long-Lived Assets

The Company regularly performs reviews of its long-lived assets to determine if facts or circumstances are present, either internal or external, which would indicate that the carrying values of its long-lived assets may not be recoverable. For more details, refer to the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

The assets in progress include $1.0 million of payments toward a new rig at Sun Well and $0.1 million toward a new training facility and gate entry renovations at Baseball Heaven. During the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, the Company wrote down all of the assets of The Show ($0.1 million) to zero-value, as The Show was not meeting forecasted projections, with no expectation to perform as represented when acquired. This impairment is included in “Selling, general and administrative” expenses in the Condensed Statement of Income.

Depreciation expense for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 aggregated $1.7 million, with $1.1 million in “Cost of revenues” and $0.6 million in “Selling, general and administrative” expenses in the Condensed Statement of Income. Depreciation expense for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 aggregated $2.8 million, with $1.6 million in “Cost of revenues” and $1.2 million in “Selling, general and administrative” expenses in the Condensed Statement of Income. There was no depreciation expense in the three-month and six-month periods ended July 1, 2011.

Through its acquisition of SWH, the Company has a phantom stock plan agreement (the “Phantom Plan”), in which the board of directors is authorized to grant phantom shares to employees and consultants. The value of the phantom shares was fixed at $1,543 per share as a result of the acquisition. If employees or consultants are terminated, their unvested shares are returned to the Phantom Plan. Phantom stockholders are entitled to receive a cash payment for their vested shares on February 1, 2016, unless there is a change of control or employee death. The Company is accounting for the unvested portion of the Phantom Plan as post-combination compensation expense by accreting a liability over the vesting period.

Sun Well has a credit agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association that includes a term loan of $20,000,000 and a revolving line of credit for up to $5,000,000. The loans are secured by the assets of Sun Well and bear interest, at the option of Sun Well, at LIBOR plus 3.5% or the greater of (a) the bank’s prime rate, (b) the Federal Funds Rate plus 1.5%, or (c) the Daily One-Month LIBOR rate plus 1.5% for base rate loans. Both options are subject to leverage ratio adjustments. The interest payments are made monthly. The term loan is repayable in $1,000,000 quarterly principal installments from September 30, 2011 through June 30, 2015. Sun Well borrowed $20,000,000 on the term loan in July 2011 and has made $5,000,000 in scheduled principal payments through June 30, 2012. Borrowings under the revolving loan, which are determined based on eligible accounts receivable, mature on June 30, 2015. There is no balance due on the revolving loan as of June 30, 2012. Under the agreement, Sun Well is subject to certain financial covenants, with which it was in compliance as of June 30, 2012.

10.     Restructuring Charges

The Company implemented restructuring plans during its nine-month transition period ended December 31, 2010 and during fiscal 2010 and 2009. The goals of these plans were to bring the Company’s operational expenses to appropriate levels relative to its historical net revenues, while simultaneously implementing extensive company-wide expense-control programs. All expenses, including adjustments, associated with the Company’s restructuring plans are included in “Restructuring charges” in the Condensed Statements of Income. These plans were completed as of December 31, 2011 so there was no restructuring activity in the six-month period ended June 30, 2012.

11.     Interest and Other Income (Expense), Net

The components of “Interest and other income (expense), net” for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and July 1, 2011 were as follows:

    (72 )     375       (226 )     471  
    $ 177     $ 2,795     $ (52 )   $ 8,127  
 
The realized currency translation gains are primarily the result of substantial liquidations of certain of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries. The Company wrote off its loan to The Show because The Show was not meeting forecasted projections, with no expectation to perform as represented when acquired. Therefore, the Company does not anticipate repayment of its loan by The Show.

12.     Income Taxes

ASC topic–740-270, Interim Reporting - Income Taxes, requires companies to make the best estimate of the annual effective tax rate for the full fiscal year and use that rate to provide for income taxes on a current year-to-date basis. An exception applies to the current quarter because the Company is not able to provide a sufficiently precise forecast of taxable income for the year. The Company recorded a provision for income tax of $0.7 million and $0.8 million for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 respectively, which are primarily the result of state taxes payable and several discrete tax expenses. The discrete items include the amortization of indefinite lived intangible assets, a mark-to-market adjustment to the value of available-for-sale securities and the separation of discontinued operations from continuing operations.

The Company recorded a tax provision of $1.4 million and $2.5 million for the three-month and six-month periods ended July 1, 2011, respectively, primarily due to the reversal of income taxes, which was reflected in “Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), net of taxes” in the Condensed Balance Sheet at July 1, 2011. During the three-month period ended July 1, 2011, the Company made significant changes to its historic investment portfolio to move to primarily low-risk interest-bearing government securities. These changes were significant enough, in the Company’s judgment, to consider the legacy portfolio to have been disposed of for the purpose of tracking a disproportionate tax effect that arose in fiscal 2008. The six-month period ended July 1, 2011 also included the Company realizing certain currency translation gains due to substantial liquidation of certain of its foreign subsidiaries during the period. These taxes were partially offset by income tax benefits from losses incurred in the Company’s foreign jurisdictions and the reversal of reserves for certain foreign taxes.

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC topic 740, Income Taxes (“ASC 740”), which requires that deferred tax assets and liabilities be recognized using enacted tax rates for the effect of temporary differences between the book and tax bases of recorded assets and liabilities. ASC 740 also requires that deferred tax assets be reduced by a valuation allowance if it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Based on its history of operating losses, the Company has offset its net deferred assets by a full valuation allowance. When realized, the asset will be reflected on the Company’s balance sheet and the reversal of the corresponding valuation allowance will result in a tax benefit being recorded in the income statement in the respective period.
 
 
20

 
 
The Company continues to monitor the status of its NOLs, which may be used to offset future taxable income.  If the Company underwent an ownership change, the NOLs would be subject to an annual limit on the amount of the taxable income that may be offset by its NOLs generated prior to the ownership change and additionally, the Company may be unable to use a significant portion of its NOLs to offset taxable income.  The Company has adopted a tax benefits preservation plan with the intention of reducing the likelihood of an ownership change. However, the Company cannot ensure that this plan will be effective in deterring all transfers of the Company’s common stock that could result in such an ownership change. For details regarding the Company’s NOL carryforwards prior to the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, please refer to Note 14 of the Notes to Financial Statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

The Company is subject to U.S. federal income tax as well as income taxes in many U.S. states and foreign jurisdictions in which the Company operates or formerly operated. As of June 30, 2012, fiscal years 2004 onward remained open to examination by the U.S. taxing authorities and fiscal years 1999 onward remained open to examination in various foreign jurisdictions. U.S. tax attributes generated in fiscal years 1999 onward also remain subject to adjustment in subsequent audits when they are utilized.

As of June 30, 2012, the Company’s total gross unrecognized tax benefits were $26.4 million, of which $5.7 million, if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate. As of December 31, 2011, the Company’s total gross unrecognized tax benefits were $29.9 million, of which $9.2 million, if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate.

The calculation of unrecognized tax benefits involves dealing with uncertainties in the application of complex global tax regulations. Management regularly assesses the Company’s tax positions in light of legislative, bilateral tax treaty, regulatory and judicial developments in the countries in which the Company conducts or formerly conducted business. Management believes that it is not reasonably possible that the gross unrecognized tax benefits will change significantly within the next 12 months; however, tax audits remain open and the outcome of any tax audits are inherently uncertain, which could change this judgment in any given quarter.

13.     Segment Information

The Company currently reports its business in two reportable segments: sports-related and oilfield services. The Company also maintains general operations as it continues to explore additional working capital redeployment opportunities. There were no reportable segments in the fiscal 2011 periods.

14.     Net (Loss) Income Per Share

Basic net (loss) income per share is computed by dividing net (loss) income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net (loss) income per share gives effect to all potentially dilutive common shares outstanding during the period, which include certain stock-based awards, calculated using the treasury stock method, and convertible notes that are potentially dilutive at certain earnings levels, and are computed using the if-converted method. As disclosed in Note 1, all share information for the prior year period has been adjusted to reflect the Reverse/Forward Split.

16.     Related Party Transactions

As disclosed in Note 3, pursuant to the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement, the Company acquired all of the capital stock of SWH for an acquisition price aggregating $62.7 million. The aggregate acquisition price consisted of the issuance of 2,027,500 shares of the Company’s common stock (valued at $27 per share, the closing price on May 30, 2012) and cash of $7.9 million. Affiliates of Steel Partners Holdings L.P. (“Steel Partners”) owned approximately 40% of the Company’s outstanding common stock and 85% of BNS on May 31, 2012. The Company appointed a special committee (the “Special Committee”) comprised solely of independent directors to consider and negotiate the transaction, as did BNS, because of the interest of Steel Partners in each company. The Special Committee, with the assistance of its independent financial advisor, considered a number of factors in negotiating the acquisition price, including, without limitation, the fairness opinion from its financial advisor.

As a result of the acquisition, Steel Partners beneficially owns approximately 51.1% of the Company’s outstanding common stock as of June 30, 2012. Jack L. Howard, John J. Quicke, and Warren G. Lichtenstein are directors of the Company and each such person is deemed to be an affiliate of Steel Partners under the rules of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Each of the three directors is compensated with cash compensation and equity awards or equity-based awards in amounts that are consistent with the Company’s Non-employee Director Compensation Policy. In addition, Mr. Quicke currently serves as the Interim President and CEO of the Company and is compensated $30,000 per month in connection with this role, which is in addition to the compensation he receives as a non-employee Board member. Mr. Quicke also serves as the CEO of other affiliates of Steel Partners.

Pursuant to a management services agreement between the Company and SP Corporate Services LLC (“SP Corporate”), the Company used various services of SP Corporate aggregating $0.3 million and $0.5 million during the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, respectively. SP Corporate is an affiliate of Steel Partners.

17.      Subsequent Events

Effective August 7, 2012 the Company’s Board, upon the recommendation of its Audit Committee, determined that the services provided by SP Corporate should be substantially expanded in order to better serve the needs of the Company as it grows organically and by acquisition, including providing the services of additional key senior personnel and adding additional critical functions in the areas of finance and accounting, legal, human resources, business development and otherwise. Accordingly, the Board approved an Amended and Restated Services Agreement, to be effective August 1, 2012, at a revised annual fee of $3,600,000. In addition, the Board approved a request by SP Corporate for an increase in the fee payable under the existing Services Agreement for additional services provided by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer during the first seven months of the current year, in the amount of $275,000.
 
 
Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. The statements contained in this document that are not purely historical are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, including, without limitation, statements regarding our expectations, beliefs, intentions or strategies regarding our business, including, but not limited to, our ability to consolidate and manage our newly acquired businesses; failure to achieve expected cost savings and other synergies from our newly acquired businesses; our ability to identify suitable acquisition candidates or business and investment opportunities; our ability to realize the benefits of our net tax operating losses; the possibility of being deemed an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, which may make it difficult for us to complete future business combinations or acquisitions; the potential need to record additional impairment charges for long-lived assets or marketable securities based on current market conditions; fluctuations in demand for our services; operating risks inherent in the oilfield services industry; environmental and other health and safety laws and regulations, including those relating to climate change; general economic conditions and our expected liquidity in future periods. We may identify these statements by the use of words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “will,” “would” and other similar expressions. All forward-looking statements included in this document are based on information available to us on the date hereof, and we assume no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements, except as may otherwise be required by law.

Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including those set forth in the “Risk Factors” section in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. In evaluating our business, current and prospective investors should consider carefully these factors in addition to the other information set forth in this report.

While management believes that the discussion and analysis in this report is adequate for a fair presentation of the information presented, we recommend that you read this discussion and analysis in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

Reverse/Forward Stock Split

At the close of business on October 3, 2011, we effected a reverse split (the “Reverse Split”) immediately followed by a forward split (the “Forward Split” and together with the Reverse Split, the “Reverse/Forward Split”). At our 2011 annual stockholders meeting, our stockholders approved a proposal authorizing the Board of Directors (the “Board”) to effect the Reverse/Forward Split at exchange ratios determined by the Board within certain specified ranges.

The exchange ratio for the Reverse Split was 1-for-500 and the exchange ratio for the Forward Split was 50-for-1. As a result of the Reverse Split, stockholders holding less than 500 shares (the “Cashed Out Stockholders”) were entitled to a cash payment for all of their shares. All remaining stockholders following the Forward Split (the “Remaining Stockholders”) were also entitled to a cash payment for any fractional shares that they would otherwise hav
