Frank’s International N.V. Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results

Strong Fundamentals Drive Solid Top and Bottom Line Improvement

HOUSTON, Aug. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Frank’s International N.V. (NYSE: FI) (the “Company” or “Frank’s”) today reported financial and operational results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019. 

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue for the quarter totaled $155.7 million, an improvement from the prior quarter of 8% and from the prior year quarter of 18%.
  • Net loss of $15.2 million for the quarter, which reflected an improvement of nearly 50% from the first quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $17.2 million, up 78% in comparison to the first quarter of 2019 results of $9.7 million, and up 57% compared to $11.0 million for the second quarter of 2018.
  • Incremental margins year-to-date are 34% in comparison to the first half of 2018.
  • Tubular Running Services demonstrated strong revenue growth of 9% sequentially and 16% over the prior year. Strong fall through resulted in a sequential 6% adjusted EBITDA margin gain, yielding a 24% margin for the quarter.
  • Tubulars segment sequential revenue growth of 20%.

“Our second quarter results exceeded expectations as we capitalized on increasing activity in the offshore markets, particularly in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and West Africa. The relentless focus of our team on best serving the needs of our customers through industry leading technological differentiation has allowed us to gain market share and take advantage of increasing market activity, which is driving the improving financial results,” said Michael Kearney, the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“This spring, Frank’s was presented the 2019 Hart’s E&P Meritorious Engineering award in recognition of our patented Collar Load Support System for Stands. This is yet another example of our commitment to provide technology solutions that increase well construction efficiency and improve well integrity for our customers.  Most importantly, the Collar Load Support System removes both our employees as well as those of our customers from the red zone on the rig floor, reinforcing our paramount emphasis on safety. I want to congratulate all our employees involved in making this product a success.”   

“We continue to maintain our full year 2019 view of significant revenue growth and increased margins across all of our business segments. Our international operations will drive much of the improvement coupled with activity increases in the North America offshore market. Frank’s remains well positioned to continue to show improving results in the recovering offshore market, with innovative and unique product and service offerings which focus on solving our customers’ complex drilling and completion challenges,” concluded Mr. Kearney.

Financial measures not presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) are defined and reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measures below.

Segment Results

Tubular Running Services

Tubular Running Services revenue was $106.6 million for the second quarter of 2019, compared to $98.1 million in the first quarter of 2019, and $91.5 million for the second quarter of 2018. The increase in sequential revenue was primarily driven by increased customer activity in West Africa, the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and Asia Pacific.  In addition, the U.S. onshore TRS business continued its upward revenue trend for the twelfth consecutive quarter despite declining rig counts.  

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 was $25.4 million, or 23.8% of revenue, compared to $17.7 million, or 18.1% of revenue, for the first quarter of 2019 and $18.9 million, or 20.6% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2018. The sequential increase in margin growth was primarily a result of regional mix in the offshore markets and lower manufacturing costs.

Tubulars

Tubulars revenue for the second quarter of 2019 was $22.3 million, compared to $18.7 million for the first quarter of 2019, and $17.0 million for the second quarter of 2018. Improvements from the first quarter of 2019 were generally attributable to increased demand for Tubular products in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico as well as a large customer order in Mexico. Drilling tools revenue also continued to experience growth through further customer adoption of the Company’s VERSAFLO™ technology which provides differentiated casing and drill pipe flowback and circulation control compared to other products in the market.    

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 was $3.9 million, or 17.6% of revenue, compared to $4.1 million, or 22.0% of revenue, for the first quarter of 2019 and $3.3 million, or 19.5% of revenue for the second quarter of 2018.

Cementing Equipment

Cementing Equipment revenue was $26.7 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $27.7 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $23.5 million for the second quarter of 2018. The sequential decline was in line with expectations due to the timing of certain completions work and some international project delays.  This was partially offset by increased demand and margin improvement in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The U.S. onshore market also maintained activity levels sequentially, despite declining rig counts. The Company continues to expect further international expansion in this segment during the second half of the year.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 was $3.0 million, or 11.3% of revenue, compared to $3.8 million, or 13.7% of revenue, for the first quarter of 2019 and $4.2 million, or 17.6% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2018. The decline was due to the aforementioned lower international revenue in addition to certain targeted investment in personnel and facilities preparing for future international expansion.

Capital Expenditures, Liquidity and Cash Flow

Cash expenditures related to property, plant and equipment and intangibles were $9.1 million for the second quarter of 2019. The Company expects total capital expenditures of approximately $40 million for 2019, with the majority of spending related to new technologically advanced tools and equipment to meet customer demand.

As of June 30, 2019, the Company’s consolidated cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments was $172.1 million compared to $172.0 million as of the prior quarter end. Total debt outstanding was $2.1 million as of June 30, 2019 compared to $3.9 million as of the prior quarter. Liquidity at June 30, 2019 was $237.3 million, including cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, as well as $65.2 million available under the Company’s Credit Facility. For the first time since the third quarter of 2017, the Company returned to a positive Free Cash Flow position amounting to $3.3 million due to improved operational results and working capital management.

Forward Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this press release that address activities, events or developments that the Company expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are 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 the Company’s future business strategy and prospects for growth, cash flows and liquidity, financial strategy, budget, projections and operating results, the amount, nature and timing of capital expenditures, the availability and terms of capital, the level of activity in the oil and gas industry, volatility of oil and gas prices, unique risks associated with offshore operations, political, economic and regulatory uncertainties in international operations, the ability to develop new technologies and products, the ability to protect intellectual property rights, the ability to employ and retain skilled and qualified workers, the level of competition in the Company’s industry and other guidance. These statements are based on certain assumptions made by the Company based on management’s experience, expectations and perception of historical trends, current conditions, anticipated future developments and other factors believed to be appropriate. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance.

Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in its forward-looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions, no assurance can be given that these assumptions are accurate or that any of these expectations will be achieved (in full or at all) or will prove to have been correct. Moreover, such statements are subject to a number of assumptions, risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, which may cause actual results to differ materially from those implied or expressed by the forward-looking statements. These include the factors discussed or referenced in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 that has been filed with the SEC and in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 that will be filed with the SEC. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and the Company undertakes no obligation to correct or update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law, and we caution you not to rely on them unduly.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of free cash flow, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin, which may be used periodically by management when discussing the Company’s financial results with investors and analysts. The accompanying schedules of this press release provide a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Free cash flow, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are presented because management believes these metrics provide additional information relative to the performance of the Company’s business. These metrics are commonly employed by financial analysts and investors to evaluate the operating and financial performance of the Company from period to period and to compare it with the performance of other publicly traded companies within the industry. You should not consider free cash flow, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Because free cash flow, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin may be defined differently by other companies in the Company’s industry, the Company’s presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash (used in) provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment and intangibles. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest income, net, depreciation and amortization, income tax benefit or expense, asset impairments, gain or loss on disposal of assets, foreign currency gain or loss, equity-based compensation, the effects of the tax receivable agreement, unrealized and realized gains or losses and other non-cash adjustments and other charges or credits. The Company uses adjusted EBITDA to assess its financial performance because it allows the Company to compare its operating performance on a consistent basis across periods by removing the effects of its capital structure (such as varying levels of interest expense), asset base (such as depreciation and amortization), income tax, foreign currency exchange rates and other  charges and credits. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenue.

Please see the accompanying financial tables for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures.
