Total Energy’s financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2018 reflect improving energy service industry conditions in the United States and Australia offset by relative weakness in Canada that was exacerbated by the seasonal decline in activity levels known as “spring break-up.” Operating efficiencies of scale and cost synergies arising from the integration of Savanna Energy Services Corp. (“Savanna”) contributed to a meaningful increase in quarterly EBITDA margins on a year over year basis and a fourth consecutive profitable quarter.

Total Energy’s Contract Drilling Services segment (“CDS”) achieved 15% utilization during the second quarter of 2018, recording 1,593 operating days (spud to rig release) with a fleet of 116 drilling rigs, compared to 2,021 operating days, or 20% utilization, during the second quarter of 2017 with a fleet of 119 drilling rigs. Revenue per operating day for the second quarter of 2018 was $24,019. During the second quarter of 2018, the CDS segment had 539 operating days in Canada with a fleet of 85 rigs (7% utilization), 703 days in the United States with a fleet of 26 rigs (30% utilization) and 351 days in Australia with a fleet of 5 rigs (77% utilization). During the second quarter a drilling rig was relocated from Canada to the United States.

The Rental and Transportation Services segment (“RTS”) achieved a utilization rate on major rental equipment of 19% during the second quarter of 2018 as compared to 18% during the second quarter of 2017. Segment revenue per utilized rental piece increased 6% for the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017 due to a modest increase in pricing. This segment exited the second quarter of 2018 with approximately 11,000 pieces of major rental equipment (excluding access matting) and 112 heavy trucks as compared to 11,700 rental pieces and 125 heavy trucks at June 30, 2017.

Revenue in the Compression and Process Services segment (“CPS”) increased 61% to $105.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $65.4 million for the same period in 2017. This segment exited the second quarter of 2018 with a $216.9 million backlog of fabrication sales orders as compared to $149.3 million at June 30, 2017 and $207.0 million at March 31, 2018. At June 30, 2018, there was 43,800 horsepower in the compression rental fleet, of which approximately 24,800 horsepower was on rent as compared to 19,000 horsepower on rent at June 30, 2017 and 18,500 horsepower at March 31, 2018. The gas compression rental fleet operated at an average utilization rate of 57% during the second quarter of 2018 as compared to 46% during the second quarter of 2017.

Total Energy’s Well Servicing segment (“WS”) generated $35.5 million of revenue during the second quarter of 2018 on 36,472 service hours, or $974 per service hour, with a fleet of 84 service rigs that were located in Canada (57 rigs), the United States (15 rigs) and Australia (12 rigs). This compares to $34.9 million of revenue during the second quarter of 2017 on 34,935 service hours, or $999 per service hour. Service rig utilization for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was 25% in Canada, 38% in the United States and 69% in Australia. 

During the second quarter of 2018 Total Energy repurchased 30,936 common shares at an average price (including commissions) of $11.96 per share pursuant to its normal course issuer bid and declared a quarterly dividend of $0.06 per share to shareholders of record on June 30, 2018. This dividend was paid on July 31, 2018. For Canadian income tax purposes, all dividends paid by Total Energy on its common shares are designated as “eligible dividends” unless otherwise indicated.

OUTLOOK

Oil and natural gas industry conditions continued to improve during the second quarter of 2018 with the exception of Canada where spring break up resulted in the usual seasonal decline in activity levels. Current indications are that activity levels will remain relatively strong in the international markets in which Total Energy competes for the near term. Activity levels in Canada have increased following spring break up and are expected to remain consistent with prior year levels in the near term provided oil prices remain stable. The record fabrication sales backlog enjoyed by the CPS segment at June 30, 2018 provides visibility for the remainder of 2018 and into the first quarter of 2019. The sales backlog continues to be driven by the Company’s increasing international business.

Total Energy’s Board of Directors has approved an increase to the Company’s 2018 capital expenditure budget to $54.0 million. This $6.0 million increase has been directed primarily to continued growth of the CPS and RTS segments in the United States. To June 30, 2018, $21.1 million of capital expenditures have been incurred.

Total Energy’s working capital position at June 30, 2018 was $103.1 million, including $24.4 million of cash and marketable securities. During the second quarter of 2018 Total Energy repaid $67.5 million principal amount of 7.0% senior unsecured notes previously issued by Savanna plus $2.3 million of accrued interest thereon with a $50 million draw on the Company’s credit facilities and $19.8 million of cash on hand. During the first half of 2018, the Company has reduced the principal amount of debt outstanding by $29.8 million and at June 30, 2018 $236.0 million was drawn on the Company’s $295.0 million of revolving bank credit facilities. Total Energy was in compliance with all debt covenants at June 30, 2018 and able to fully draw on the remaining amounts available under its credit facilities. Total Energy’s primary credit facility also provides the Company with the option to increase such facility by $75 million subject to certain terms and conditions including the agreement of the lenders to increase their commitments.

Notes to the Financial Highlights

 (1) EBITDA means earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and is equal to net loss before income taxes plus finance costs plus depreciation. EBITDA is not a recognized measure under IFRS. Management believes that in addition to net loss, EBITDA is useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company’s primary business activities prior to consideration of how those activities are financed, amortized or how the results are taxed in various jurisdictions as well as the cash generated by the Company’s primary business activities without consideration of the timing of the monetization of non-cash working capital items. Readers should be cautioned, however, that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net loss determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of Total Energy’s performance. Total Energy’s method of calculating EBITDA may differ from other organizations and, accordingly, EBITDA may not be comparable to measures used by other organizations.

 (2) Working capital equals current assets minus current liabilities. 

 (3) Net Debt equals long-term debt plus obligations under finance leases plus current liabilities minus current assets. 

 (4) Basic and diluted shares outstanding reflect the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the periods. See note 6 to the Company’s Interim Consolidated Financial Statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.

Certain statements contained in this press release, including statements which may contain words such as "could", "should", "expect", "believe", "will" and similar expressions and statements relating to matters that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based upon the opinions and expectations of management of Total Energy as at the effective date of such statements and, in some cases, information supplied by third parties. Although Total Energy believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions and that information received from third parties is reliable, it can give no assurance that those expectations will prove to have been correct.

Such forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions and factors including fluctuations in the market for oil and natural gas and related products and services, political and economic conditions, central bank interest rate policy, the demand for products and services provided by Total Energy, Total Energy’s ability to attract and retain key personnel and other factors. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause the actual results, performances or achievements of Total Energy to be materially different from any future results, performances or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
