Weatherford Reports First Quarter 2018 Results

BAAR, Switzerland, April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Weatherford International plc (NYSE: WFT) reported a net loss of $245 million, or a loss of $0.25 per share for the first quarter of 2018.

First Quarter 2018 Highlights

  • Segment operating income improved by 145% year-over-year
  • Successfully extended 2019 and 2020 debt maturities through closing a private offering of $600 million in senior notes
  • Estimated recurring benefit of $108 million in annualized cost savings and $41 million in one-time benefits as part of the transformation effort
  • Won OTC Asia Spotlight on New Technology Awards for the HeatWave ExtremeSM service and the WFX0™ openhole gravel-pack system
  • Launched two of the planned divestitures processes and made further progress on our Land Drilling Rigs divestiture

Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2018, excluding unusual charges and credits, was $188 million, or $0.19, diluted loss per share. This compares to a $329 million non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2017, or $0.33 diluted loss per share, and a $318 million non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of the prior year, or $0.32 diluted loss per share.

Revenue in the first quarter of 2018 was $1.42 billion, which decreased 4% from revenue of $1.49 billion for the fourth quarter of 2017 and was 3% higher than the $1.39 billion of revenue reported for the first quarter of 2017. The sequential revenue decrease was due to non-repeating year-end product sales as well as seasonal declines in the North Sea and Russia. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to activity increases in the U.S., Argentina and Mexico in the Western Hemisphere and Kuwait, Iraq, Russia and Saudi Arabia in the Eastern Hemisphere, partially offset by a decrease in Venezuela as a result of a change in accounting for revenue to cash basis and depressed offshore markets in the North Sea, West Africa and Asia.

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2018 was $39 million. Excluding unusual charges and credits, segment operating income in the first quarter of 2018 was $40 million, up $123 million or 148% sequentially, and up $129 million, or 145%, year-over-year. The sequential improvement was primarily due to improved product margins benefiting from a favorable sales mix, lower personnel and other support costs, the timing of revenue and cost recognition related to deliveries in Kuwait and lower depreciation expenses resulting from asset impairments recorded in the prior quarter.

Year-over-year improvement was led by revenue growth in Production and Well Construction in the U.S. and parts of Latin America combined with higher activity and improved service quality across all product lines in the Middle East and Russia. Results also benefited from an overall reduction in cost structure as well as lower depreciation due to asset sales and impairments in prior quarters. These improvements were partially offset by a decline in revenue in Venezuela after our change in accounting for revenue to a cash basis last quarter.

In the quarter, we recorded pre-tax charges of $57 million, which include $34 million related to the bond tender and call premium, $26 million in currency devaluation charges mostly in the Angolan kwanza, $25 million in restructuring and transformation charges and $18 million in asset write-downs and other, net. This was partially offset by $46 million in credits related to the fair value adjustment of the outstanding warrant.

In the first quarter of 2018, estimated recurring benefits as a result of the transformation plan were $27 million or $108 million on an annualized basis. In addition, we achieved $41 million in one-time benefits, mostly driven by the sale of surplus or non-strategic assets along with an improved collections process.

Mark A. McCollum, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "As we continue on our transformational path, our results for the first quarter of 2018 reflect our focus on planning and executing tangible actions to improve our position as a strong, viable and innovative organization. Sequentially and on a year-over-year basis, our operating income, margins and adjusted EBITDA improved substantially, as we steadily reduced our core costs and benefited from an improving market environment. Additionally, we have increased accountability, efficiency and process discipline across the entire Company."

McCollum continued, "The goals we have set forth for 2018 and 2019 are realistic and achievable. We are on track and, in the first quarter, have already achieved 10% of our annualized recurring benefit target. I am excited about our progress as we continue to build momentum. We have the right people, technologies and processes to be successful, and by executing on the detailed action plans we have developed over the past few months, we will generate improved returns and create significant value for our shareholders." 

Cash Flow and Financial Covenants

Net cash used in operating activities was $185 million for the first quarter of 2018, driven by cash payments of $174 million for debt interest and $26 million for cash severance and restructuring costs partially offset by improved collections of accounts receivables. First quarter capital expenditures of $38 million, including investments in Land Drilling Rigs held-for-sale assets, decreased by $40 million, or 51%, sequentially due to lower spending in Well Construction due to project delays and delayed rig mobilizations, and decreased $2 million or 5% from the same quarter in the prior year.

The Company is in compliance with its financial covenants as defined under our revolving and secured term loan credit facilities as of March 31, 2018, and expects to continue to remain in compliance with all covenants based on current financial projections.

Taxes

The first quarter of 2018 tax provision was $32 million including tax expenses related to profits in certain jurisdictions, deemed profit countries, and withholding taxes on intercompany and third-party transactions. The tax expense is lower sequentially due to the establishment of an additional valuation allowance and provisions for foreign law changes, offset by a one-time tax benefit as a result of a U.S. tax reform, in the prior quarter.

Western Hemisphere

First quarter revenues of $756 million were down $3 million or 0.4% sequentially, and up $23 million, or 3%, year-over-year. The sequential decrease was primarily in the U.S. due to non-repeating year-end product sales of pumping units and the completion of the Pressure Pumping and Pump-Down Perforating assets sale in the prior quarter, offset by increased Integrated Services and Projects activity in Mexico and higher activity in Argentina from Production and Drilling Services.

Year-over-year revenues increased primarily due to higher adoption of Managed Pressure Drilling and improved utilization of Drilling Tools in the U.S., growing demand for Pressure Pumping services in Argentina and Integrated Services and Projects in Mexico, partially offset by lower revenues in Venezuela after our change in accounting for revenue to cash basis last quarter.

First quarter segment operating income of $24 million was up $59 million sequentially, and up $54 million year-over-year. The sequential increase was due to improved margins resulting from a favorable product mix, lower personnel expenses and lower depreciation and amortization after impairments recognized in the prior quarter.

Year-over-year results increased primarily in the U.S. as result of revenue growth in Production and Well Construction, a decline in operating costs and lower depreciation. These improvements were partially offset by lower revenues in Venezuela after our change in accounting for revenue to a cash basis last quarter.

Operational highlights in the Western Hemisphere during the quarter include:

  • An operator in the Eagle Ford Shale deployed Weatherford logging-while-drilling services to identify wellbore fractures while drilling. The customer estimates that the data provided will reduce completions costs while matching production estimates, saving approximately $300,000 per well.
  • Working closely alongside a major operator in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Weatherford developed a new tubular handling system that enabled the customer to safely and efficiently run 16-in. casing. The solution saved approximately 1 day of operational time and the customer plans to deploy the same technology on future jobs.
  • Weatherford replaced the incumbent service provider on a South Texas well where the operator was experiencing high levels of nonproductive time and well-control risks. By deploying a managed pressure drilling solution, Weatherford resolved these issues and saved the operator approximately $1 million.
  • Weatherford deployed a comprehensive managed pressure drilling system, including the Microflux® control system and the OneSync® software platform, to drill a challenging well in the pre-salt area of Brazil. By successfully maintaining constant bottomhole pressure, the team reached total depth 50 hours ahead of plan and using a single bit, saving the operator approximately $780,000 in rig time.
  • Working in close collaboration with the operator, Weatherford designed and executed an innovative completion program for an onshore well in Mexico. First, the team applied a wireline perforation technique that reduced intervention time by 30%. Additionally, a stimulated reservoir volume pressure pumping technique increased production expectations by 250%.
  • Weatherford was awarded a one-year contract for all service and inspection of reciprocating-rod-lift surface equipment across more than 400 wells in the Bakken Shale. Through a comprehensive process that included collecting and analyzing data, performing root-cause analysis, and delivering an integrated solution, Weatherford reduced the failure rate by 10% and eliminated thousands of hours of downtime and deferred production.
  • Weatherford was awarded a 3-year exclusive contract to supply Maximizer® pumping units to the largest operator of reciprocating rod-lift systems in Argentina, replacing the incumbent.

Eastern Hemisphere

First quarter revenues of $667 million were down $64 million or 9% sequentially, and up $14 million or 2% year-over-year. The sequential decrease was primarily due to non-repeating product sales as well as seasonally lower activity in the North Sea and Russia. These factors were partially offset by increased revenue from Integrated Services and Projects. Year-over-year revenues increased across the Middle East and Russia due to contract gains and increased rig activity. These gains were partially offset by lower activity levels in the North Sea, West Africa and Asia as offshore markets remain subdued.

First quarter segment operating income of $16 million was up $64 million sequentially, and up $75 million year-over-year. The sequential increase was primarily due to a more favorable revenue mix, the timing of revenue and cost recognition related to deliveries in Kuwait, non-repeating start-up costs in Asia and an overall lower cost structure.

Year-over-year operating income increased in all product lines primarily in the Middle East and Russia due to higher activity levels, a reduced cost structure and improved service quality resulting in greater revenue efficiency.

Operational highlights in the Eastern Hemisphere during the quarter include:

  • Weatherford won a 3-year wireline services contract in Algeria. Together with a major drilling services contract won in the fourth quarter of 2017, this award significantly expands the Company's exposure and footprint in Algeria.
  • Weatherford won a 4-year contract for logging while drilling, surface logging systems, tubular running services and float equipment for a major international operator in the Gulf of Thailand. Weatherford secured the win in large part due to the strength of the HeatWaveSM logging-while-drilling service, which was developed specifically to acquire high-quality formation evaluation data in the ultrahigh-temperature environments common in the Gulf of Thailand.
  • Weatherford won a 5-year contract to provide intervention services including fishing, re-entry and thru-tubing services in the Middle East. The customer selected Weatherford from a large number of competitors because of the Company's service quality record and advanced technologies in this area.
  • Weatherford deployed the AcidSure® system on an underperforming well in a highly fractured carbonate reservoir in the Middle East. The stimulation operation avoided the need for a workover and resulted in a 600% production increase.
  • Weatherford deployed the AccuView® real-time remote support system to execute a shallow-angle casing exit in Sakhalin Island, Russia. The software system facilitated real-time analysis of foot-by-foot performance, which enabled the operator to complete the casing exit in a single trip.
  • Weatherford successfully executed three casing exits from an offshore platform in Malaysia using the QuickCut™ whipstock system. By meeting all targets on a short lead time, Weatherford enabled the customer to complete three infill wells.
  • Weatherford Land Drilling Rigs reduced nonproductive time to 1.6%, which represents a 43% decrease from the business's 2017 average and marks the best quarter on record.
  • Despite mobilization delays, profitability for the Land Drilling Rigs business increased sequentially.

(a) 

On January 1, 2018, we adopted the accounting standard related to taxes on intra-entity transfers of non-inventory assets on a modified retrospective basis and the impact from this adoption was to record the previously recorded prepaid taxes as an adjustment to retained earnings. In addition we also adopted the revenue recognition accounting standard and recorded the cumulative effect of the changes made to our consolidated balance sheet as an adjustment to retained earnings.
