Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On April 27, 2005, RPC, Inc. held a conference call to discuss the first quarter
2005 financial results and answer questions from the investment community.

                        RELATED TO THE FIRST QUARTER 2005

RPC's First Quarter 2005 earnings conference call, held on April 27, 2005,
contains discussions about our domestic and international revenues for the first
quarters 2005 and 2004. For informational purposes, the reconciliation of these
numbers to total revenues is set forth below:

                                                  For the three month period
                                                        ended March 31,
                                                     2004           2005
                                                    -------        -------
      Domestic Revenues                             $74,771        $89,994
      International Revenues                          5,231          2,336
                                                    -------        -------
          Total Revenues                            $80,002        $92,330

RPC believes that the changes in foreign and domestic revenues provides useful
information to investors who analyze RPC's performance relative to industry
statistics such as the domestic rig count.
