SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuverra Environmental Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: NES) ("Nuverra" or the "Company") announced financial and operating results today for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

SUMMARY OF THIRD-QUARTER RESULTS

  • Revenue from continuing operations was $76.5 million, a decrease of $63.1 million, or 45.2% from the third quarter of 2014. On a sequential comparison with the second quarter, revenue decreased 17.2%.
  • Excluding special items, third-quarter net loss from continuing operations was $22.5 million, or a loss of $0.81 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $6.3 million, or a loss of $0.24 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014. Reported third-quarter net loss from continuing operations was $128.1 million, or a loss of $4.61 per share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations of $99.4 million, or a loss of $3.73 per share in the third quarter of 2014.
  • Special items included a non-cash goodwill impairment charge recorded in the third quarter of $104.7 million. This accounting impairment was triggered by commodity price declines and a reduction in the market price of the Company's common stock.
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $6.3 million, a decrease of $21.8 million, or 77.7% from the third quarter of 2014.
  • Year-to-date net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations for the period ended September 30, 2015 was $55.7 million; year-to-date free cash flow was $51.4 million. This reflects significant cost reductions, which contributed to lower year-over-year costs and expenses excluding special items of $46.6 million, or 34.9%, compared with the third quarter of 2014. Year-to-date, total costs and expenses excluding special items were down $85.5 million, or 22.0% compared with 2014.
  • Reached agreement with banks to amend credit facility on November 2, 2015, reducing lender commitments to $125.0 million and providing for carve-out of midstream subsidiary to advance transformative water infrastructure investments.

Mark D. Johnsrud, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The third quarter saw volume and pricing headwinds as customers reduced drilling and completion activities. To position the company to weather these trends, which we expect to continue into 2016, we continued to focus on our cost-management and efficiency initiatives with a goal of operating within our cash flow as we work to complete the next steps to transform our business.

"In the recent amendments to our credit facility, our banks agreed to carve out our midstream subsidiary from our corporate capital structure. This is an important step toward advancing our long-term midstream strategy because it opens the door to project-level financing. Our objective is to seek long-term customer contracts that can reduce our overall economic exposure to fluctuations in commodity prices and well-activity levels."

THIRD-QUARTER 2015 RESULTS

Third-quarter 2015 revenue from continuing operations was $76.5 million, a decrease of approximately $63.1 million or 45.2%, compared with third-quarter 2014 revenue from continuing operations of $139.6 million. The decrease was primarily related to declines in overall customer drilling and completion activities and service pricing erosion, both of which drove lower revenue from water logistics, salt water disposal, solids management and rental services, offset in part by higher revenue related to salt water recycling services in the Northeast Division.

Adjusted for special items, total costs and expenses were down 34.9% compared with the third quarter of 2014. These reductions included approximately $17 million in lower payroll and related expenses, approximately $8 million in fuel savings, and approximately $5 million in lower depreciation and amortization expense, with the remainder related primarily to reductions in all other direct operating costs. Total costs and expenses excluding special items were down 22.0% in the first nine months of 2015 compared with the same period in 2014.

During the third quarter, continued declines in global crude oil prices, coupled with a reduction in the market price of the Company's common stock, required the Company to record a pre-tax, non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $104.7 million.

Excluding special items, third-quarter net loss from continuing operations was $22.5 million, or a loss of $0.81 per diluted share, compared with net loss of $6.3 million, or a loss of $0.24 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014. Reported third-quarter net loss from continuing operations was $128.1 million, or a loss of $4.61 per share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations of $99.4 million, or a loss of $3.73 per share in the third quarter of 2014.

Third-quarter adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $6.3 million, a 77.7% decrease compared with adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $28.0 million in the third quarter of 2014. Third-quarter adjusted EBITDA margin was 8.2%, compared with 20.1% for the third quarter of 2014. The year-over-year margin variance was due primarily to lower overall revenues associated with reduced customer drilling and completion-related activities, offset in part by lower total costs and expenses.

YEAR-TO-DATE RESULTS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2015 ("YTD")

YTD revenue from continuing operations was $288.1 million, a decrease of $106.5 million or 27.0%, compared with $394.5 million for the same period in 2014. The decrease was primarily related to significant overall declines in customer drilling and completion activities during the period. These declines resulted in lower revenues for water logistics, solids management and rentals in the Rocky Mountain Division and a reduction in water logistics and fresh water transfer services in the Southern Division, offset in part by increases in revenue related to water logistics and salt water recycling services in the Northeast Division.

Excluding special items, YTD net loss from continuing operations was $52.3 million, or a loss of $1.89 per diluted share, compared with a loss of $29.3 million, or a loss of $1.14 per diluted share, for the same period in 2014. Reported YTD net loss from continuing operations was $160.8 million, or a loss of $5.82 per diluted share, compared with a loss of $136.1 million, or a loss of $5.28 per diluted share, for the same period in 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the YTD period was $37.3 million and a margin of 12.9%, compared with adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $69.8 million and a margin of 17.7% for the same period in 2014. The year-over-year margin variance was due primarily to lower overall revenues associated with reduced customer drilling and completion-related activities, offset in part by lower total costs and expenses.

CASH & LIQUIDITY

Net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations through September 30, 2015 was $55.7 million. Year-to-date net cash capital expenditures from continuing operations (or purchases of property, plant and equipment net of proceeds received from sales of property, plant and equipment) were $4.2 million. The Company generated $51.4 million in free cash flow for the nine-month period.

As of September 30, 2015, total debt outstanding, excluding $0.5 million of discounts and premiums, was $522.3 million, consisting of $400.0 million of 2018 Notes, $101.8 million outstanding under the revolving credit facility, and $20.5 million in capital leases and notes payable.

On November 2, 2015, the Company amended its credit facility following a periodic redetermination of its borrowing base, reducing lender commitments to $125.0 million from $195.0 million, reflecting lower appraisal values for machinery and equipment used in determining the borrowing base. As of November 2, 2015, after giving effect to the amendment and appraisal, $101.8 million was outstanding under the credit facility and estimated availability under the facility was less than $5 million, net of required reserves, with cash on hand of approximately $31.6 million.

Additionally, as the Company prepared for next steps in its water infrastructure investment strategy, the amendment releases Nuverra Rocky Mountain Pipeline, LLC ("RMP"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, from all obligations under the credit facility, including as guarantor and a grantor under the guaranty and security agreement to the credit facility. The agreement with the banks releases all liens on the assets of RMP and equity interests in RMP to the extent they are transferred to a third-party investor and establishes a separate permitted investment basket allowing for additional aggregate investments of up to $5.0 million in RMP. The Company concurrently designated RMP as an Unrestricted Subsidiary under the indenture governing its 9.875% Senior Notes due 2018 and removing RMP as a guarantor thereunder.

Rocky Mountain Division (Bakken)

Rocky Mountain Division revenue for the third quarter was $41.3 million, a decrease of 52.8% compared with the third quarter of 2014. The year-over-year difference was related primarily to further declines in customer drilling and completion activities and continued pricing pressures, which drove lower revenue for water logistics, solids management and equipment rental services. YTD revenue for the division was $158.3 million, a decrease of 35.9% when compared with year-to-date revenue of $247.0 million for the same period in 2014.

Third-quarter adjusted EBITDA for the Rocky Mountain Division was $8.4 million, a margin of 20.4% compared with adjusted EBITDA of $27.4 million and a margin of 31.3% in the third quarter of 2014. YTD adjusted EBITDA for this division was $37.6 million, a margin of 23.7% compared with adjusted EBITDA of $72.2 million and a margin of 29.2% for the same period in 2014. 

Northeast Division (Marcellus, Utica)

Northeast Division revenue for the third quarter was $19.8 million, a decrease of 23.0% compared with the third quarter of 2014. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a reduction in water logistics and salt water disposal revenue driven by an overall ramp-down in activities among several key customers in the region, offset in part by increases in water recycling services revenue. YTD, Northeast Division revenue was $74.5 million, an increase of 10.6%, when compared with year-to-date revenue of $67.4 million in the same period of 2014. The year-over-year increase for the nine-month period was primarily related to earlier period 2015 growth in market share from the addition of several new customers in the region.

Third-quarter adjusted EBITDA for the Northeast Division was $2.6 million and a margin of 13.1%, compared with adjusted EBITDA of $4.1 million and a margin of 15.8% in the third quarter of 2014. YTD adjusted EBITDA for this division improved to $11.1 million and a margin of 14.8%, compared with adjusted EBITDA of $7.6 million and a margin of 11.2% for the same period in 2014.

The quarterly decrease in adjusted EBITDA and margin relate primary to lower water logistics and salt water disposal activities, as well as pricing pressures, offset in part by reduced operating costs and expenses. YTD improvements in adjusted EBITDA and margin were primarily due to an overall gain in market share earlier during the year, which drove higher revenue, coupled with reduced operating costs and expenses. These YTD improvements were offset in part by lower water logistics and salt water disposal activities, as well as continued pricing pressures.

Southern Division (Haynesville, Eagle Ford, Mississippian, Permian)

Southern Division revenue for the third quarter was $15.4 million, a decrease of 41.5% compared with the third quarter of 2014. The year-over-year decrease was primarily related to overall declines in drilling and completion activities, which were pronounced in the Eagle Ford Shale region. This resulted in lower water logistics, salt water disposal, water transfer, and rental services revenue in the Eagle Ford region when compared with the third quarter of 2014, offset in part by increases in the Haynesville region in water logistics, salt water disposal and water infrastructure revenue. YTD, Southern Division revenue was $55.2 million, a decrease of 31.1%, when compared with year-to-date revenue of $80.1 million in the same period of 2014.

Third-quarter adjusted EBITDA for the Southern Division was $0.7 million, a margin of 4.8% compared with adjusted EBITDA of $2.3 million and a margin of 8.7% in the third quarter of 2014. YTD adjusted EBITDA for this division was $5.0 million, a margin of 9.0%, compared with adjusted EBITDA of $6.2 million and a margin of 7.7% for the same period in 2014. YTD margin improvement was due primarily to increases in water logistics, salt water disposal and water infrastructure revenue in the Haynesville region and lower overall costs and expenses in both the Haynesville and Eagle Ford regions.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS

(Unaudited)


This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statements of operations or balance sheets of the Company; or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the attached financial tables.


These non-GAAP financial measures are provided because management of the Company uses these financial measures in maintaining and evaluating the Company's ongoing financial results and trends. Management uses this non-GAAP information as an indicator of business results, and evaluates overall performance with respect to such indicators. Management believes that excluding items such as acquisition expenses, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, asset impairments, restructuring charges, expenses related to litigation and resolution of lawsuits, and other charges, which may or may not be non-recurring, among other items that are inconsistent in amount and frequency (as with acquisition expenses), or determined pursuant to complex formulas that incorporate factors, such as market volatility, that are beyond our control (as with stock-based compensation), for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of the Company's current operating performance and comparisons to the past and future operating performance. The Company believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures such as EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) per share, and operating working capital, in addition to related GAAP financial measures, provides investors with greater transparency to the information used by the Company's management. These non-GAAP financial measures are not substitutes for measures of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with GAAP and may not necessarily be indicative of the Company's liquidity or ability to fund cash needs. Not all companies calculate non-GAAP financial measures in the same manner, and our presentation may not be comparable to the presentations of other companies.
