“As the quarter progressed, U.S. onshore activity deteriorated more than anticipated, resulting in lower than expected operational results in the third quarter,” said Sivasankaran “Soma” Somasundaram, President and Chief Executive Officer. “While both of our segments were impacted by slowing U.S. activity, Drilling Technologies experienced a steeper than expected decline driven by the sharp decrease in the U.S. rig count, as well as the related destocking of polycrystalline diamond cutter inventories by our customers. The aggressive destocking by our drill bit customers had an estimated impact of $12 million on Drilling Technologies third quarter revenue. International markets continue to remain positive and our revenues outside of North America were up 13% in the quarter compared to the year ago period. Although total company revenue declined, our proactive cost management actions and continuous productivity initiatives enabled us to post a strong adjusted EBITDA margin performance of 24% in the quarter reflecting our margin resiliency.

“In addition, during the third quarter we generated robust free cash flow of $55 million representing a free cash flow conversion ratio of 83%, which highlights one of the many strengths of our portfolio. Consistent with our capital allocation priorities, we also funded a strategic technology acquisition and repaid $25 million of term loan debt. Since our spin-off we have repaid $120 million of debt, and we remain committed to further deleveraging our balance sheet.

“For the fourth quarter of 2019, we expect continued weakness in U.S. onshore activity driven by traditionally lower seasonal activity, as well as our E&P customers’ budget exhaustion and capital discipline, which we expect will result in a sequential decrease in revenue and adjusted EBITDA for Apergy. We expect the U.S. rig count to further decline in the fourth quarter extending the destocking by our drill bit customers as they continue to adjust to lower drilling activity and adhere to capital discipline. In addition to the softening drilling activity, built into our fourth quarter outlook is an incremental sequential revenue impact of $5 million from destocking from our drill bit customers. We view the destocking as a temporary phenomenon during periods of meaningful decline in the rig count. Given the short cycle nature of our portfolio and continued destocking in the fourth quarter, visibility continues to remain challenging; therefore, we will provide an update to our fourth quarter outlook in early December.

“For the remainder of the year, we intend to build on our solid cash generation capabilities, and we are increasing our expected a free cash flow conversion ratio to 45% to 50% for full year 2019. We do expect business activity levels to sequentially improve from current levels as we enter 2020, driven by new budgets and restocking by our drill bit customers as they prepare for the increased activity levels.

“We continue to remain focused on the factors under our control, including our productivity and share gain initiatives, as well as aligning our cost structure to meet the current market needs. To this end, so far we have taken actions to reduce our cost structure resulting in an annualized benefit of approximately $20 million, and we will continue to evaluate and execute further actions moving forward. We feel confident that we will continue to deliver “top box” performance driven by our margin resiliency and free cash flow generation.”

Production & Automation Technologies

In the third quarter of 2019, Production & Automation Technologies revenue decreased $12.2 million, or 5%, sequentially, driven by lower customer spending for both artificial lift products and other production equipment. Segment operating profit increased $0.9 million, or 4%, and adjusted segment EBITDA increased $1.6 million, or 3%, sequentially, due to strong cost reduction actions and higher than expected productivity in the quarter.

On a year-over-year basis, Production & Automation Technologies revenue decreased $17.7 million, or 7%, due to lower artificial lift revenue in North America, partially offset by higher international and digital revenue. Segment operating profit decreased $2.4 million, or 10%, and adjusted segment EBITDA increased $1.9 million, or 4%, due to strong cost discipline and higher than expected productivity in the quarter.

Revenue from digital products was $34.5 million in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of $0.2 million, compared to $34.3 million in the second quarter of 2019, and an increase of $3.2 million, or 10%, compared to $31.2 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Drilling Technologies

In the third quarter of 2019, Drilling Technologies revenue decreased by $15.5 million, or 22%, sequentially, driven by the decline in U.S. drilling activity and customer destocking of polycrystalline diamond cutter inventories, as well as the push-out of diamond bearings orders due to capital discipline by our oilfield services customers. Sequentially, the average worldwide and U.S. rig counts declined 1% and 7%, respectively. Segment operating profit decreased $10.5 million and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased by $10.0 million, or 38%, due to the lower volumes.

On a year-over-year basis, Drilling Technologies revenue decreased $20.4 million, or 27%, due to lower U.S. drilling activity and customer destocking of polycrystalline diamond cutter inventories, as well as the push-out of diamond bearings orders due to capital discipline by our oilfield services customers. Year-over-year, the average worldwide and U.S. rig counts declined 7% and 12%, respectively. Year-over-year, segment operating profit decreased $12.4 million, or 47%, and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased by $12.4 million, or 43%, as a result of the lower volume.

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 news release presents information about Apergy’s adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted segment EBITDA, adjusted segment EBITDA margin, adjusted net income attributable to Apergy, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to Apergy, free cash flow, and free cash flow conversion ratio 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, environmental costs, 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, environmental costs, 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.

Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures. Free cash flow conversion ratio is defined as free cash flow divided by adjusted EBITDA.

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

This news release also contains certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow conversion ratio. Due to the forward-looking nature of the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures, management cannot reliably or reasonably predict certain of the necessary components of the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures, such as net income and cash from operating activities. 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.
