Frank’s International N.V. Announces First Quarter 2017 Results
  • Revenue of $111 million, up 3% sequentially from the fourth quarter 2016
  • U.S. onshore revenues up 16% sequentially
  • Strong growth in West Africa and Latin America drove International segment revenues higher 2% sequentially

HOUSTON, May 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Frank’s International N.V. (NYSE:FI) (the “Company” or “Frank’s”) today reported revenues of $110.7 million and net loss of $26.7 million, or $0.12 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2017. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $1.5 million or 1.4% of revenue. 

“The increase in U.S. onshore rig activity continues to benefit our U.S. Services and Blackhawk segments, and our International business is beginning to show signs of improvement,” said Douglas Stephens, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

“We still face headwinds in our U.S. offshore and Tubulars Sales businesses as decreased activity and lower prices for our services persist. However, we remain diligent in evaluating and identifying opportunities to lower our costs and expand our products and services to underrepresented markets to offset some of these declines.”

“We also maintain a strong balance sheet that we believe will offer us the flexibility to broaden our well construction offering through acquisitions and grow our revenue per rig potential. As we progress through 2017, we are focused on providing our customers with safe, quality and reliable service and positioning the Company for a return to sustained profitability and cash flow in the eventual market recovery.”

Segment Results

International Services
International Services revenue was $46.6 million in the first quarter of 2017, up 1.8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, and down 43.9% compared to the first quarter of 2016. Sequential results were impacted by increased work scope in West Africa and increased activity in Latin America and Canada, partially offset by delays in the commencement of certain projects in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2017 of $5.3 million, or 11.3% of revenue, was up 249.4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, and down 83.2% compared to the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA increased sequentially due to higher West Africa revenues and lower costs in the segment.

U.S. Services
U.S. Services revenue was $31.0 million in the first quarter of 2017, down 5.8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, and down 36.5% compared to the first quarter of 2016.

For the first quarter, onshore revenue within the U.S. Services segment of $11.2 million was up 16.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, and up 4.8% compared to the first quarter of 2016. Sequential and year-over-year revenue increases were a result of increased rig activity and improved pricing of services.

Offshore revenue within the U.S. Services segment of $19.8 million for the first quarter was down 15.0% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, and down 48.1% compared to the first quarter of 2016. Revenue decreased year-over-year and sequentially due to a decline in working rig count activity and lost work from aggressive competitive pricing.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was a loss of $7.2 million, down $9.2 million from the fourth quarter 2016. Adjusted EBITDA was lower due to fewer one-time benefits from the previous quarter, one-time employee healthcare claims expense in the first quarter and loss of high margin offshore work in the Gulf of Mexico.

Tubular Sales
Tubular Sales revenue was $16.9 million in the first quarter of 2017, down 12.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016, and down 21.7% compared to the first quarter of 2016. Revenue experienced declines from lower Gulf of Mexico volumes due to decreased demand.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was $2.3 million, or 13.3% of revenue. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBTIDA margin were higher due to lower realized costs from actions taken in 2016.

Blackhawk
Blackhawk revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $16.2 million compared to $10.0 million for the full months of November and December 2016. Segment adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $1.2 million or 7.5% of revenue.

Offshore revenue during the quarter was $9.5 million and onshore revenue was $6.7 million for the first quarter 2017. Additionally, the Blackhawk onshore business reported record revenues for product sales during the first quarter of 2017.

Reclassifications

Effective January 1, 2017, the Company changed the classification of certain direct and indirect costs previously classified and reported as general and administrative (“G&A”) expenses to cost of revenues (“COR”). The change will better reflect management’s philosophy in assessing performance and allocating resources, as well as improve comparability to the Company’s peer group. The reclassification of COR and G&A expenses has no net impact to the condensed consolidated statements of income or to total segment reporting and has been reflected retrospectively for all periods present in this release as well as the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to be filed with the SEC.

In addition, previously reported adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2016 has been adjusted for employee stock purchase plan expense and matters related to the investigation announced in June 2016 and further described in our public filings. Management believes removing the effect of these items allows for better comparability across periods.

Capital Expenditures and Liquidity

Capital expenditures were $11.7 million for the first quarter of 2017. The Company’s consolidated cash balance at March 31, 2017 was $283.9 million compared to $319.5 million at December 31, 2016. As of March 31, 2017, the company had no outstanding indebtedness and $3.6 million in letters of credit outstanding under its $100 million credit facility.

Dividends and Share Repurchase Program

The Company expects that its Board of Managing Directors (the “Management Board”), with the approval from the Board of Supervisory Directors of the Company (the “Supervisory Board”, and jointly with the Management Board, the “Boards”) will, at the next scheduled meeting of the Supervisory Board on May 19, 2017, declare a cash dividend of $0.075 per share (subject to applicable Dutch dividend withholding tax) to all common stockholders of record as of June 2, 2017, and with a payment date on June 16, 2017, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. As customary, any declaration and payment of dividends are subject to the determination by the Boards and no assurances can be given that any such dividend will be declared as expected.

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.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, segment 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, adjusted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, segment 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 adjusted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, segment adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA margin in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Because adjusted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, segment adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA margin may be defined differently by other companies in the Company’s industry, the Company’s presentation of adjusted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, segment adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.

The Company defines adjusted earnings (loss) per share as earnings (loss) per share before severance and other charges, net of tax and merger and acquisition costs, net of tax. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as income from continuing operations before net interest income or expense, depreciation and amortization, income tax benefit or expense, asset impairments, gain or loss on sale of assets, foreign currency gain or loss, equity-based compensation, other non-cash adjustments and unusual charges. 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) and items outside the control of the Company’s management team (such as income tax rates). 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.
