Frank’s International N.V. Announces First Quarter 2015 Results
  • First quarter revenue was $277 million, up 5 percent year-over-year
  • Diluted EPS was $0.25, excluding one-time charges
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $100 million or 36 percent of revenue
  • More than $30 million in estimated annualized savings as a result of cost saving initiatives

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 29, 2015-- Frank’s International N.V. (NYSE:FI) (the “Company”) today reported revenues of $277 million, and income from continuing operations of $46 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Diluted earnings per share for the first quarter were $0.25, excluding $8 million in severance and other charges, net of tax, and are referenced in the non-GAAP reconciliation included in this release. Weighted average shares outstanding were 208 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $100 million or 36% of revenue.

“Frank’s International delivered $277 million in revenue during the first quarter, up 5% year-over-year with 36% adjusted EBITDA margins. We are very pleased with these results despite the fact that we are facing both lower prices and activity levels, particularly in our U.S. land market. We have had some success with previously discussed efforts to offset these challenges through upselling of technology and requesting longer-term volume commitments,” said Gary Luquette, Frank’s International’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Offshore activity was resilient in the first quarter and we believe it will remain stable throughout 2015, whereas onshore activity levels will continue to be impacted by reduced rig count. While we do not believe we have reached a market bottom or an end to pricing pressures, we have observed fewer requests for discounts, and are optimistic that the worst is behind us.

“Frank’s International has a very strong balance sheet, which positions us to move on opportunities if and when they present themselves. I am confident that the Company is well positioned for the eventual recovery in commodity prices.”

Segment Results

International Services

International Services revenue from external sales was $124.2 million in the first quarter of 2015, up 4.7% compared to the first quarter of 2014, and down 14.9% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Year-over-year results were impacted by increased revenue in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Latin America, partially offset by revenue declines in Asia Pacific and Canada. Sequentially results were impacted by normal seasonality and reduced activity levels due to the current industry slowdown.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2015 of $52.3 million, or 42.1% of revenue, was up 2.5% compared to the first quarter of 2014, and down 21.0% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by year-over-year revenue increases and sequential revenue declines and reduced activity levels.

U.S. Services

U.S. Services revenue from external sales was $109.3 million in the first quarter of 2015, up 5.3% compared to the first quarter of 2014, and down 7.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014.

For the first quarter, onshore revenue within the U.S. Services segment of $35.0 million was down 3.3% compared to the first quarter of 2014 and down 25.4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Sequential revenue declines were less than industry rig count declines of over 40% for the same period as the Company’s customer base provided insulation from the full impact of the slowdown.

Offshore revenue within the U.S. Services segment of $74.3 million for the first quarter was up 9.9% compared to the first quarter of 2014 and up 4.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Revenue increased year-over-year and sequentially due to opportunities on current projects combined with activity on new rigs in the region.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of $45.0 million, or 41.1% of revenue, was up 7.2% compared to the first quarter of 2014 and down 6.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin benefited from the revenue mix within the segment.

Tubular Sales

Tubular Sales revenue from external sales was $44.0 million in the first quarter of 2015, up 4.3% compared to the first quarter of 2014, and down 20.0% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Revenue experienced normal seasonal decline and remained in line with expectations.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was $3.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBTIDA margin were negatively impacted by unabsorbed labor and overhead costs due to reduced activity in the Company’s manufacturing division.

Total pipe and connector inventory decreased $0.1 million from December 31, 2014 to $185.0 million at March 31, 2015.

Deferred revenue decreased $5.9 million from December 31, 2014 to $70.2 million at March 31, 2015.

Capital Expenditures and Balance Sheet

Capital expenditures were $43.9 million for the first quarter of 2015. The Company’s consolidated cash balance at March 31, 2015 was $498.4 million compared to $489.4 million at December 31, 2014. At March 31, 2014 there was $93.8 million of unused capacity under the Company’s $100.0 million credit facility, net of outstanding letters of credit. In early April, the Company closed its previously-announced purchase of Timco Services for $83 million utilizing existing cash on the balance sheet.

Dividends

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 declare a cash dividend of $0.15 per share (subject to applicable Dutch dividend withholding tax) at the next scheduled meeting of the Supervisory Board on May 20, 2015 to all common stockholders of record as of June 5, 2015, and with a payment date on June 19, 2015, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. 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.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release and the accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted EBITDA, segment adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted diluted earnings per share, 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, segment Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted diluted earnings per share 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, segment Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted diluted earnings per share in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Because Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted earnings per share may be defined differently by other companies in the Company’s industry, the Company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted earnings per share 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. The Company defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as diluted earnings per share and one-time charges.

Please see the accompanying financial tables for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures.
