Forward-looking statements

Statements that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private
Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and forward looking information within the meaning of applicable
Canadian legislation. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates and
assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of uncertainties and factors, many of which
are outside Precision's control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by
Precision and described in the forward looking statements. These forward-looking statements are also affected
by the risk factors, challenges and uncertainties described in Precision's Annual Report on Form 40-F (Annual
Information Form in Canada) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014, and those set forth from time to time
in Precision's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the securities regulatory authorities in
each of the Provinces of Canada, which are available through Precision's website at www.precisiondrilling.com.
No assurance can be given that any of the events anticipated by the forward-looking statements will transpire or
occur or, if any of them do so, what benefits will be derived therefrom. Security holders, potential investors and
other readers are urged to consider these factors carefully in evaluating the forward-looking statements which
speak only as of the date made. Except as may be required by law, Precision expressly disclaims any intention
or obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements and information whether as a result of new
information, future events or otherwise.
