During the three months ended September 30, 2010, Delta had revenues of $2,424,500, compared to $2,151,180 during the three-month period ended September 30, 2009, representing an increase of $273,320, or 12.7%.

Operating expenses increased by $237,444, to $2,357,629 for the three months ended September 30, 2010, compared to operating expenses of $2,120,185 for the three months ended September 30, 2009. Operating expenses increased due to higher cost of sales associated with the increase in pipe sales. This was offset by lower general and administrative expenses associated with the decline in rig service revenues. Operating expenses increased by $736,949, to $8,146,553 for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared to operating expenses of $7,409,604 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

The increase in cost of sales was due to the increase in pipe sales during the nine months ended September 30, 2010. General and administrative expenses were $4,574,764 for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, compared to $4,673,354 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $98,590 from the prior period. General and administrative expenses include non-cash stock-based compensation of $858,790 primarily to the executive officers of Delta Seaboard in consideration for extending their employment agreements. This was offset significantly by lower operating expenses associated with the decline in rig service revenues.

Delta had operating income of $66,871 during the three months ended September 30, 2010, compared to $30,995 during the three months ended September 30, 2009, an increase of $35,876 from the prior period.

Other expenses during the three-month period ended September 30, 2010 were $23,092, compared to $55,643 during the same period in the prior year, a decrease of $32,551 from the prior period, primarily due to a decrease in interest expense of $31,591.
