|Frank’s International N.V. Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results|
HOUSTON, Nov 12, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Frank’s International N.V. (NYSE: FI) (the “Company” or “FI”) today reported revenues of $270.1 million and net income from continuing operations of $59.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. Diluted earnings per share was $0.29 with weighted average shares outstanding of 190.4 million. Adjusted EBITDA was $101.3 million, which includes a non-cash bad debt expense of $8.0 million.
Third quarter results were negatively impacted by $2.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in nonrecurring charges related to the Company’s recent initial public offering (“IPO”), as well as an $8.0 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, increase in bad debt expense in FI’s Latin American region. The Tubular Sales segment, formerly our Pipe and Products segment, was adversely affected by an increase in deferred revenue relating primarily to one customer’s paid, but undelivered order.
“Frank’s continues to be well positioned in our key markets and our outlook for the company is strong. We strive to maintain or increase market share where it makes financial sense,” said D. Keith Mosing, Frank’s International’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President. “We see continued increases in offshore rig counts globally, especially in the ultra-deep water segment which is more complex and technically demanding. For our onshore markets, rig counts are decreasing leading to a more competitive environment with increased pricing pressure. Lastly, we believe our Tubular Sales business is positioned for strong growth as customers are looking at development opportunities for 2014.
“As we look towards the end of the year, we expect our annual revenues to be flat when compared to our record year in 2012, in which we grew 43 percent. Increases in offshore drilling activity that we had anticipated for the third and fourth quarters along with declines in our U.S. onshore business have lowered our expectations for the near-term.”
Third Quarter 2013 Results
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, which are financial measures not presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), are defined and reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. Adjusted EBITDA and segment data discussed below do not include income from discontinued operations.
International Services revenue from external sales was $121.7 million in the third quarter of 2013, up 0.7% compared to the second quarter of 2013 and up 5.0% compared to the third quarter of 2012. Year-over-year revenue growth reflects an expanded presence in new locations and increased demand for services from existing customers.
Segment Adjusted EBITDA of $48.8 million was down 10.4% compared to the second quarter of 2013 and down 12.9% compared to the third quarter of 2012. Segment Adjusted EBITDA was down year-over-year mainly due to higher compensation expense and $8.0 million in bad debt expense in Latin America, which were partly offset by the growth in revenue.
Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter was 40.1% of external revenue.
U.S. Services revenue from external sales was $108.1 million in the third quarter of 2013, down 6.5% compared to the second quarter of 2013 and down 3.7% compared to the third quarter of 2012. Lower onshore rig counts contributed to lower year-over-year and sequential results.
Segment Adjusted EBITDA of $47.2 million was down 20.6% compared to the second quarter of 2013 and down 17.4% compared to the third quarter of 2012. Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased primarily due to higher compensation related costs and a reduction in revenue.
Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter was 43.7% of external revenue.
Tubular Sales revenue from external sales was $40.3 million in the third quarter of 2013, down 28.7% compared to the second quarter of 2013 and up 5.3% compared to the third quarter of 2012. Year-over-year revenue growth was due primarily to an increase in pipe sales in deep water markets. Results were impacted by an increase in deferred revenue due to delays in delivery associated with one customer.
Segment Adjusted EBITDA was $5.3 million down 62.0% compared to the second quarter of 2013 and up 116.6% compared to the third quarter of 2012. The year-over-year increase was attributable to higher revenue levels, partly offset by increases in the cost of pipe.
Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter was 13.2% of external revenue.
Capital Expenditures and Balance Sheet
Capital expenditures were $39.3 million during the third quarter of 2013 and $126.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Total debt at September 30, 2013 was $0.6 million compared to total debt of $423.2 million at June 30, 2013. At the end of the third quarter of 2013, there was $200.0 million of unused capacity under the Company’s $100.0 million multi-year and $100.0 million one-year credit facilities. Debt to total capitalization at the end of the third quarter of 2013 was 0% as compared to 43.5% at the end of the second quarter of 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This news release and the accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of 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 news 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 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 EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Because Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin may be defined differently by other companies in the Company’s industry, the Company’s presentation of 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 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 and other non-cash adjustments. 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.
