Seventy Seven Energy Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2015 Operational and Financial Results

Seventy Seven Energy Inc. (NYSE: SSE) today reported financial and operational results for the third quarter of 2015. Key information related to SSE for the third quarter is as follows:

  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $41.1 million
  • Positive free cash flow of $42.9 million
  • Repurchased and cancelled $10.0 million of its 6.5% Senior Notes due 2022
  • Surpassed an SSE milestone of over 100 customers accounting for 36% of total revenue

SSE reported total revenues of $213.5 million for the third quarter of 2015, a 28% decrease compared to revenues of $295.1 million for the second quarter of 2015, and a 59% decrease compared to revenues of $526.8 million for the third quarter of 2014. SSE’s adjusted EBITDA was $41.1 million for the third quarter of 2015, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $44.3 million for the second quarter of 2015 and adjusted EBITDA of $129.0 million for the third quarter of 2014.

Adjusted net loss, which excludes impairments, gains or losses on sales of property and equipment, severance-related costs, loss on sale of a business and exit costs, and gains on debt extinguishment, for the third quarter of 2015, was $47.6 million, or $0.93 per fully diluted share. Net loss for the third quarter of 2015 was $48.5 million, or $0.95 per fully diluted share, compared to net loss of $74.7 million, or $1.50 per fully diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015 and net loss of $1.8 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014.

Adjusted revenues, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and adjusted net loss are non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these measures to comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) are provided on pages 9 - 13 of this release.

“Given the current market environment, we are pleased with our third quarter execution,” Chief Executive Officer Jerry Winchester said. “Our focus on diversifying our customer base across all of our business segments is reflected in our customer count which is now well past 100 different operators. Surpassing this milestone is a direct result of our commitment to service quality, execution and safety.

“This diversification strategy, coupled with one of the best contractual backlogs in the industry and sufficient liquidity, positions us for dynamic growth when drilling and completion activity levels improve.”

Drilling

SSE’s drilling segment contributed revenues of $80.3 million and adjusted EBITDA of $33.9 million during the third quarter of 2015, compared to revenues of $100.4 million and adjusted EBITDA of $38.3 million for the second quarter of 2015 and revenues of $200.4 million and adjusted EBITDA of $82.4 million for the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in revenues for the third quarter of 2015 compared to the second quarter of 2015 was primarily due to a 21% decline in revenue days associated with additional contracted rigs being idled during the quarter.

The percentage of revenues from non-CHK customers increased from 36% to 42% of total segment revenues for the third quarter of 2015 compared to the second quarter of 2015. As of September 30, 2015, approximately 58% of SSE’s active rigs were contracted by non-CHK customers and SSE had a total drilling revenue backlog of $505.3 million with an average duration of 16 months.

Operating costs were $41.4 million during the third quarter of 2015, compared to $57.1 million for the second quarter of 2015 and $133.0 million for the third quarter of 2014. Average operating costs per revenue day in the third quarter of 2015 decreased 11% from the second quarter of 2015, primarily driven by a 16% decrease in labor-related costs per revenue day. As a percentage of drilling revenues, drilling operating costs were 52% for the third quarter of 2015, 57% for the second quarter of 2015 and 66% for the third quarter of 2014.

As of September 30, 2015, the Company’s marketed fleet of 92 rigs consisted of 32 Tier 1 rigs, including 21 PeakeRigs™, 57 Tier 2 rigs and three Tier 3 rigs. Additionally, 75% of the Company’s marketed fleet are multi-well pad capable rigs. SSE currently has five additional contracted PeakeRigs™ under construction that are backed by term contracts and scheduled to be delivered over the next eight months. As of September 30, 2015, 51 rigs were under contract, of which 25 were idle.

Hydraulic Fracturing

SSE’s hydraulic fracturing segment contributed revenues of $118.1 million and adjusted EBITDA of $8.2 million during the third quarter of 2015, compared to revenues of $163.4 million and adjusted EBITDA of $18.2 million for the second quarter of 2015 and revenues of $245.1 million and adjusted EBITDA of $54.5 million for the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in revenues from the second quarter of 2015 to the third quarter of 2015 was primarily due to an 11% decrease in revenue per stage. Revenues from non-CHK customers as a percentage of total segment revenues increased from 21% in the second quarter of 2015 to 27% in the third quarter of 2015. As of September 30, 2015, SSE’s hydraulic fracturing revenue backlog was $387.6 million with an average duration of 14 months.

Average operating costs per stage in the third quarter decreased 9% from the second quarter of 2015. The decrease in average operating costs per stage for the third quarter of 2015 compared to the second quarter of 2015 was primarily due to an 11% decline in product costs per stage, which is the result of reducing proppant and fracturing fluid costs by leveraging SSE’s logistics infrastructure competitive advantage. As a percentage of hydraulic fracturing revenues, hydraulic fracturing operating costs were 88% for the third quarter of 2015, 86% for the second quarter of 2015 and 78% for the third quarter of 2014.

As of September 30, 2015, SSE owned 10 hydraulic fracturing fleets with an aggregate of 400,000 horsepower operating in the Anadarko Basin and the Eagle Ford and Utica Shales.

Oilfield Rentals

SSE’s oilfield rentals segment contributed revenues of $15.0 million and adjusted EBITDA of ($0.9) million during the third quarter of 2015, compared to revenues of $17.8 million and adjusted EBITDA of ($4.1) million for the second quarter of 2015 and revenues of $38.9 million and adjusted EBITDA of $13.7 million for the third quarter of 2014. Revenues from non-CHK customers as a percentage of total segment revenues increased from 62% in the second quarter of 2015 to 77% in the third quarter of 2015. Revenues during the quarter were negatively impacted by the reduction in drilling and completions activity by SSE’s customers.

Operating costs were $14.0 million during the third quarter of 2015, compared to $20.2 million for the second quarter of 2015 and $27.0 million for the third quarter of 2014. As a percentage of oilfield rental revenues, operating costs were 93% for the third quarter of 2015, 114% for the second quarter of 2015 and 69% for the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in operating costs as a percentage of revenues in the third quarter of 2015 compared to the second quarter of 2015 was due to declines in labor-related costs and sub-contracting services. The increase in operating costs as a percentage of revenue in the third quarter of 2015 compared to the third quarter of 2014 was due to significant declines in fleet utilization and increased pricing pressure.

Former Oilfield Trucking

During the second quarter of 2015, SSE sold its drilling rig and logistics business and water hauling assets. As of June 30, 2015, there were no remaining assets or operations in the oilfield trucking segment.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses were $26.7 million in the third quarter of 2015, compared to $34.8 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $32.7 million in the third quarter of 2014. General and administrative expenses include non-cash compensation of $8.3 million and $8.6 million, and severance-related costs of $1.5 million and $3.1 million for the third quarter of 2015 and the second quarter of 2015, respectively. During the second quarter of 2015, general and administrative expenses included $2.7 million for services provided by CHK pursuant to the transition services agreement which was terminated during the second quarter of 2015.

Liquidity

As of September 30, 2015, SSE had cash of $156.2 million and working capital of $168.7 million. SSE also had $152.7 million in availability under its revolving bank credit facility, which included no borrowings and $10.2 million in outstanding letters of credit. As of October 23, 2015, SSE had cash on hand of $126.8 million.

Capital expenditures totaled $61.1 million for the third quarter of 2015, which primarily consisted of investment in new PeakeRigs™. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, capital expenditures totaled $151.8 million. SSE currently expects its total year-end 2015 capital expenditures to be under $200.0 million.

During the third quarter of 2015, SSE repurchased and cancelled $10.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its 6.5% Senior Notes due 2022 (the “2022 Notes”) for $4.9 million. SSE recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt of $5.0 million, which includes accelerated amortization of deferred financing costs of $0.1 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, SSE repurchased and cancelled $50.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the 2022 Notes in multiple transactions for $31.3 million. SSE recognized gains on extinguishment of debt of $18.1 million, which includes accelerated amortization of deferred financing costs of $0.6 million. From time to time SSE may use cash on hand in excess of its budgeted capital expenditures to repurchase and cancel its outstanding long-term debt or common stock, subject to approval by its Board of Directors.

Forward-Looking Statements and Cautionary Statements

This news release (and any oral statements made regarding the subjects of this release, including on the conference call announced herein) contains certain statements and information that may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of historical facts that address activities, events or developments that we expect, believe or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “ensure,” “expect,” “if,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “project,” “forecasts,” “predict,” “outlook,” “aim,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “potential,” “would,” “may,” “probable,” “likely,” and similar expressions, and the negative thereof, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, forward-looking statements contained in this press release specifically include statements, estimates and projections regarding our business outlook and plans, future financial position, liquidity and capital resources, operations, performance, acquisitions, returns, capital expenditure budgets, costs and other guidance regarding future developments. Forward-looking statements are not assurances of future performance. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations and beliefs, forecasts for our existing operations, experience, and perception of historical trends, current conditions, anticipated future developments and their effect on us, and other factors believed to be appropriate. Although management believes that the expectations and assumptions reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made, no assurance can be given that these assumptions are accurate or that any of these expectations will be achieved (in full or at all). Moreover, our forward-looking statements are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which may cause actual results to differ materially from our historical experience and our present expectations or projections which are implied or expressed by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, risks relating to general economic and industry conditions; our customers’ drilling and completion expenditures; delays in or failure of delivery of current or future orders of specialized equipment; the loss of or interruption in operations of one or more key suppliers or customers; the effects of government regulation, permitting and other legal requirements, including new legislation or regulation of hydraulic fracturing; operating risks; the adequacy of our capital resources and liquidity; weather; litigation; competition in the onshore oil and natural gas services industry; and costs and availability of resources.

In addition, we calculate our contract drilling backlog by multiplying the day rate under our contracts by the number of days remaining under the contract. We calculate our hydraulic fracturing backlog by multiplying the (i) rate per stage, which varies by operating region and is, therefore, estimated based on current customer activity levels by region and current contract pricing, by (ii) the number of stages remaining under the contract, which we estimate based on current and anticipated utilization of our crews. With respect to our hydraulic fracturing backlog, our contracts provide for periodic adjustments of the rates we may charge for our services, which will be negotiated based on then-prevailing market pricing and in the future may be higher or lower than the current rates we charge and utilize in calculating our backlog. The drilling backlog calculation does not include any reduction in revenues related to mobilization or demobilization, nor does it include potential reductions in rates for unscheduled standby or during periods in which the rig is moving, on standby or incurring maintenance and repair time in excess of what is permitted under the drilling contract. We compute average duration for our contract drilling backlog and hydraulic fracturing backlog as the average number of months remaining for our drilling rigs under contract and our remaining hydraulic fracturing fleets under contract, respectively. Many of our contracts are also subject to termination by the customer on short notice and provide for an early termination payment to us in the event that the contract is terminated by the customer. We calculate our contract drilling early termination value assuming each rig remains stacked for the remainder of the term of the terminated contract. As a result of the foregoing, revenues could differ materially from the backlog and early termination amounts presented.

For additional information regarding known material factors that could cause our actual results to differ from our present expectations and projected results, please see our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including our Current Reports on Form 8-K that we file from time to time, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and our 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 2, 2015.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statement which speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made. We undertake no obligation to correct, revise or update any forward-looking statement after the date such statement is made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.

SEVENTY SEVEN ENERGY INC.
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Spin-off, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Revenues and Free Cash Flow

During the second quarter of 2015, SSE sold Hodges Trucking Company, L.L.C., which provided drilling rig relocation and logistics services, to a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aveda Transportation and Energy Services Inc. and SSE sold its water hauling assets to various third parties. SSE’s adjusted revenues assume these transactions occurred on January 1, 2014.

On June 30, 2014, SSE separated from Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE: CHK) and became an independent, publicly traded company in a series of transactions, which is referred to as the “spin-off.” As part of the spin-off, SSE distributed its compression unit manufacturing and geosteering businesses to CHK and sold its crude hauling assets to a third party. SSE’s adjusted revenues assume these transactions occurred on January 1, 2014.

“Adjusted EBITDA”, “adjusted revenues” and “free cash flow” are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted revenues and free cash flow as used and defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies and are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income or loss, cash flows provided by operating, investing and financing activities, or other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, our management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our performance and liquidity and believes Adjusted EBITDA may be useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance and liquidity because this measure:

  • is widely used by investors in the oilfield services industry to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such measure, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods, book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired, among other factors;
  • is a financial measurement that is used by rating agencies, lenders and other parties to evaluate our creditworthiness; and
  • is used by our management for various purposes, including as a measure of performance of our operating entities and as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting.

There are significant limitations to using Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance, including the inability to analyze the effect of certain recurring and non-recurring items that materially affect our net income or loss. Additionally, because Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and is defined differently by different companies in our industry, our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted revenues should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for revenues prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, our management uses adjusted revenues to evaluate our period over period operating performance because our management believes this measure improves the comparability of our continuing businesses and for the same reasons believes this measure may be useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance.

Free cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for cash flow information prepared and reported in accordance with GAAP, but should be viewed in addition to SSE’s reported cash flow statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by or used in operating activities less capital expenditures.
