THE WOODLANDS, Texas, April 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apergy Corporation (“Apergy”) (APY) today reported net income of $22.3 million in the first quarter of 2019, compared to net income of $24.1 million in the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted net income was $24.9 million in the first quarter of 2019, compared to adjusted net income of $26.2 million in the first quarter of 2018. Results from the first quarter of 2018 do not include all of the expenses that would have been incurred had Apergy been a stand-alone public company during the period, including interest expense and additional corporate costs, partially offset by the elimination of royalty expense.

Diluted earnings per share was $0.29 in the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share, excluding restructuring and spin-off activities, was $0.32 in the first quarter of 2019.

Revenue was $301.7 million in the first quarter of 2019, an increase of $18.6 million, or 7%, compared to $283.1 million in the first quarter of 2018, and a decrease of $9.5 million, or 3%, compared to $311.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA was $72.5 million in the first quarter of 2019, an increase of $8.7 million, or 14%, compared to $63.8 million in the first quarter of 2018, and a decrease of $5.3 million, or 7%, compared to $77.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 24.0% in the first quarter of 2019, an increase of 150 basis points year-over-year. Compared to the first quarter of 2018, the first quarter of 2019 includes an additional $2.1 million of corporate costs associated with Apergy becoming a stand-alone public company.   

Cash from operating activities was $19.9 million in the first quarter of 2019, compared to $7.6 million in the first quarter of 2018, and $70.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. In the first quarter of 2019, Apergy used available cash to repay $25 million of term loan debt. Since the completion of the spin-off on May 9, 2018, Apergy has repaid $70 million of term loan debt.

“We executed well in the first quarter and delivered solid financial results,” said Sivasankaran “Soma” Somasundaram, President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the quarter, market activity progressed as we expected with a seasonally slower start in January followed by progressively improving activity for the remainder of the quarter.

“On a year-over-year basis, Production & Automation Technologies first quarter revenue increased 5%, primarily driven by our customer service focused ESP offering, international artificial lift platform, and cutting edge digital products. After the year-end 2018 slowdown in customer spending, ESP installations accelerated throughout the first quarter resulting in significantly more installations in March compared to January. Compared to the year ago period, Drilling Technologies revenue increased 12%, significantly outpacing the growth in worldwide average rig count of 2%. Growth in this segment was propelled by our technologically advanced polycrystalline diamond cutters and diamond bearings. Apergy’s revenue outside of North America increased 25% year-over-year, primarily driven by strong artificial lift activity in the Middle East and international diamond bearings shipments.

“Our cash from operating activities more than doubled to $20 million in the first quarter of 2019, from $8 million in the year ago period. Consistent with previous years, we expect cash from operating activities to increase throughout the year as we recover the first quarter build in adjusted working capital. In-line with our capital allocation priorities, we continued to make progress on deleveraging our balance sheet and repaid $25 million of term loan debt, bringing the total repaid since our spin-off to $70 million.

“We have started the year well. As we look into the second quarter of 2019, we expect modest sequential growth in revenue and adjusted EBITDA driven by growth in our artificial lift and digital products, partially offset by lower adjusted segment EBITDA and margin percent in Drilling Technologies due to the seasonally lower rig count in Canada, which is expected to recover in the third quarter. From an industry perspective, in the second half of 2019, we expect activity levels to remain constructive supported by the continued strength in oil gas prices. We believe that our production-oriented artificial lift, high value digital, and differentiated drilling products are positioned to deliver another year of positive results.”

Production & Automation Technologies

In the first quarter of 2019, Production & Automation Technologies revenue increased $10.3 million, or 5%, year-over-year primarily driven by strong growth in our electric submersible pump (“ESP”) and digital products. Revenue from digital products was $31.3 million in the first quarter of 2019, an increase of $6.9 million, or 28%, compared to $24.4 million in the first quarter of 2018. Segment operating profit increased $6.3 million, or 64%, and adjusted segment EBITDA increased $6.7 million, or 17%, year-over-year, primarily driven by revenue growth and strong cost discipline. Adjusted segment EBITDA margin expanded to 20.6% in the first quarter of 2019 from 18.4% in the prior year period.

On a sequential basis, revenue decreased $11.2 million, or 5%, due to the expected slower seasonal start in January. Segment operating profit decreased $2.5 million, or 13%, and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased $4.4 million, or 9%, sequentially due to the lower volume in the quarter.

Drilling Technologies

In the first quarter of 2019, Drilling Technologies revenue increased $8.3 million, or 12%, year-over-year as a result of increased worldwide average rig count and continued diamond bearings growth. The year-over-year growth in the average worldwide rig count was 2%. Year-over-year, segment operating profit increased $2.6 million, or 11%, and adjusted segment EBITDA increased by $2.3 million, or 8%, as a result of the increased volume and productivity initiatives partially offset by product mix, higher input costs, including tariffs, and additional allocated corporate expenses associated with Apergy becoming a stand-alone public company.

On a sequential basis, revenue increased by $1.7 million, or 2%, outpacing the flat worldwide average rig count. Segment operating profit decreased $0.1 million and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased by $0.2 million, or 1%, as product mix, higher input costs, and a challenging pricing environment offset the increased revenue.

Basis of Presentation

For periods prior to May 9, 2018 (the “Separation”), our results of operations, financial position and cash flows are derived from the consolidated financial statements and accounting records of Dover Corporation (“Dover”) and reflect the combined historical results of operations, financial position and cash flows of certain Dover entities conducting its upstream oil and gas energy business within Dover’s Energy segment, including an allocated portion of Dover’s corporate costs. Our financial statements have been presented as if such businesses had been combined for all periods prior to the Separation. These pre-Separation combined financial statements may not include all of the actual expenses that would have been incurred had we been a stand-alone public company during the periods presented prior to the Separation, and consequently may not reflect our results of operations, financial position and cash flows had we been a stand-alone public company during the periods presented prior to the Separation. All financial information presented after the Separation represents the consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows of Apergy.

About Non-GAAP Measures

This release presents information about Apergy’s adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted segment EBITDA, adjusted segment EBITDA margin, adjusted net income attributable to Apergy, and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to Apergy, which are non-GAAP financial measures made available as a supplement, and not an alternative, to the results provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). See Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures included in the accompanying financial tables for the reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable financial measure in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted segment EBITDA are defined as, or as a result of, net income excluding income taxes, interest income and expense, depreciation and amortization expense, separation and supplemental benefit costs associated with the spinoff from Dover Corporation, royalty expense incurred only prior to the spinoff, and restructuring and other related charges. Adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted segment EBITDA margin are defined as adjusted EBITDA and adjusted segment EBITDA, respectively, divided by revenue.

Adjusted net income attributable to Apergy and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to Apergy are defined as net income attributable to Apergy and earnings per share attributable to Apergy, respectively, excluding separation and supplemental benefit costs associated with the spinoff from Dover Corporation, royalty expense incurred only prior to the spinoff, and restructuring and other related charges.

Adjusted working capital is defined as accounts receivable, plus inventory, less accounts payable. We believe adjusted working capital provides a meaningful measure of our operational results by showing changes caused by revenue or our operational initiatives.

References to net income, diluted earnings per share, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are exclusive of our non-controlling interests.

This press release also contains certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA. Due to the forward-looking nature of the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measure, management cannot reliably or reasonably predict certain of the necessary components of the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures, such as net income. Accordingly, we are unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of such forward looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures. Amounts excluded from these non-GAAP measures in future periods could be significant. Management believes the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures are good tools for internal use and the investment community in evaluating Apergy’s overall financial performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures are included to help facilitate comparisons of Apergy’s operating performance across periods by excluding items that do not reflect the core operating results of our businesses. As such, Apergy’s management believes making available non-GAAP financial measures as a supplemental measurement to investors is useful because it allows investors to evaluate Apergy's performance using the same methodology and information used by Apergy management.
