May 10 (Reuters) - Oilfield services provider Ensign Energy Services Inc (ESI.TO) posted first-quarter earnings that missed market estimates, hurt by lower pricing and a fall in revenue from its U.S. and international operations.
For the quarter ended March 31, the company’s net income fell to C$40 million, or 26 Canadian cents a share, from C$72.7 million, or 47 Canadian cents, a year ago.
Revenue fell 12 percent to C$352.8 million.
Analysts on average were expecting earnings of 30 Canadian cents a share on revenue of C$373.4 million.
Revenue from the company’s U.S. operations fell 19 percent to C$104 million, while international revenue dropped 24 percent to C$70 million, primarily due to the strengthening of the Canadian dollar.
Shares of the company closed at C$13.31 Friday on the Toronto Stock Exchange. (Reporting by Arnika Thakur in Bangalore; Editing by Maju Samuel)
