Newpark Resources Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE: NR) today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016. Total revenues for the second quarter of 2016 were $115.3 million compared to $114.5 million in the first quarter of 2016 and $163.6 million in the second quarter of 2015. Net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $13.9 million, or $0.17 per share, compared to a net loss of $13.3 million, or $0.16 per share, in the first quarter of 2016, and a net loss of $4.3 million, or $0.05 per share, in the second quarter of 2015. Second quarter 2016 results included the impact of the following charges:

  • $7.6 million of pre-tax charges ($7.3 million after-tax) in the Fluids Systems segment associated with the impairment of intangible and other long-lived assets in the Asia Pacific region and the impairment of inventory in North America.
  • $0.9 million of pre-tax charges ($0.6 million after-tax) associated with workforce reductions, primarily in the North America Fluids Systems business.
  • $1.1 million of pre-tax charges ($0.7 million after-tax) associated with the write-off of capitalized financing costs, resulting from the second quarter 2016 termination of our previous $150 million revolving credit facility.

As described in the attached Non-GAAP Earnings Reconciliation, the second quarter of 2016 adjusted net loss was $5.3 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $12.3 million, or $0.15 per share, in the first quarter of 2016, and an adjusted net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.02 per share, in the second quarter of 2015.

Paul Howes, Newpark's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Despite the continuing sharp decline in North American drilling activity, consolidated revenues were up slightly on a sequential basis, benefiting from strong international fluids performance, and the continued penetration of non-exploration markets in our Mats business. North American fluids revenues declined by 34% sequentially, reflecting the continued softening of U.S. drilling activity and the impact of spring break-up in Canada. However, the North American declines were largely offset by growth in the international markets, including an $11 million revenue contribution from the recently-completed ultra-deepwater project in Uruguay and increased activity in Kuwait. The Fluids segment operating margin improved sequentially, largely reflecting the impact of North American cost reduction actions taken during the previous quarter and the stronger international contribution.

"In the Mats segment, we are continuing to make meaningful progress in our efforts to penetrate new markets, which have served to offset the continued softening in North American exploration activity.  Mats segment revenues increased 21% sequentially, largely driven by a $4 million increase in mat sales activity. 

"Meanwhile, we continued to strengthen our balance sheet, building our cash position in the quarter while continuing to fund our strategic deepwater infrastructure investments," added Howes. "Benefiting from the recovery of U.S. taxes paid in previous years, our cash balance increased to $93 million at the end of the second quarter. As previously announced, we also recently completed our transition to a $90 million asset-based lending facility, which provides us with additional available liquidity through the cycle, and strengthening our position to manage the maturity of our Convertible Notes."

Segment Results

The Fluids Systems segment generated revenues of $96.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $98.7 million in the first quarter of 2016 and $140.3 million in the second quarter of 2015. Segment operating loss was $11.9 million in the second quarter of 2016, compared to a $15.2 million loss in the first quarter of 2016 and a $0.2 million loss in the second quarter of 2015. Segment results for the second quarter of 2016 included a total of $8.3 million of charges, including impairments of intangible and other long-lived assets in the Asia Pacific region, as well as costs associated with workforce reductions and the impairment of inventory in North America.

The Mats and Integrated Services segment generated revenues of $19.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $15.9 million in the first quarter of 2016 and $23.3 million in the second quarter of 2015. Segment operating income was $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to operating income of $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2016, and $6.6 million in the second quarter of 2015. Segment operating income in 2016 is benefiting from a reduction in depreciation expense associated with our mat rental fleet, reflecting increases in estimated useful lives and residual values. This change in estimate reduced depreciation expense by $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2016 and $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP Earnings Reconciliation

(Unaudited)


To help understand the Company's financial performance, the Company has supplemented its financial results that it provides in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") included in this press release with non-GAAP financial measures.  Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in understanding the Company's financial performance.  Such non-GAAP financial measures include "Adjusted net loss" and "Adjusted net loss per diluted share" which have been adjusted for items that the Company believes are infrequent or not indicative of ongoing operating performance.  Management believes that the exclusion of these items from the historical results of operations enables management to evaluate more effectively the Company's operations over the prior periods and to identify operating trends that could be obscured by the excluded items.


The methods the Company uses to produce these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from methods used by other companies.  The foregoing non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, as more fully discussed in the Company's financial statements and filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(a) Represents the tax effects of the aggregate adjustments during the period. For the three months ended June 30, 2016, our Australian subsidiary is generating a pre-tax loss, for which the recording of a tax benefit is not permitted. As a result, there is no tax benefit associated with the impairment of intangibles and other long-lived assets in the Asia Pacific region. For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the provision for income taxes also includes a tax adjustment of $1.7 million to impair previously-recorded deferred tax assets in Australia.
