  • Adjusted EBITDA of $86.8 million

  • Repaid $82 million of debt

  • Increasing our annualized run-rate cost synergies target to $125 million (versus prior $75 million)

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChampionX Corporation (“ChampionX”) (NYSE: CHX) (“the Company”) today announced third quarter of 2020 results, our first full quarter following the June 3, 2020 combination of the Company with the legacy ChampionX business.

For the third quarter of 2020, revenue was $633.5 million, net loss attributable to ChampionX was $7.9 million, and adjusted EBITDA was $86.8 million, including an incremental $12 million of estimated synergies realized on a sequential basis and $6.0 million of isolated benefits. The isolated benefits primarily include gains on dispositions of facilities, and collections of previously reserved customer receivables. Loss before income taxes margin was (1.8)%, and adjusted EBITDA margin was 13.7%. Cash provided by operating activities was $111.4 million, an increase of $62.6 million sequentially, and free cash flow was $98.6 million. Cash flow figures include payment of $33.4 million for final transaction expenses, and for integration expenses in the quarter.

Results on a pro forma basis for ChampionX for prior periods are provided supplementary to the actual results of the Company and represent results on a nine month to-date basis as if legacy ChampionX was combined with the Company for the entire period. Pro forma results are presented in the section titled “ChampionX Pro Forma Results.” For additional information on the pro forma results see note titled “Results on a Pro Forma Basis” below and the tables included in this release.i

CEO Commentary

“The health and safety of our employees remains our highest priority, and we continue in our commitment to take all necessary steps to protect them as we navigate through this global pandemic,” ChampionX’s President and Chief Executive Officer Sivasankaran “Soma” Somasundaram said. “I thank all our employees for their continued dedication as they continue to demonstrate outstanding adaptability and flexibility during these uncertain and challenging times. It is a privilege and an honor for me to lead such a high-performing team.”

“The third quarter marked our first full quarter as a new company. Our strong results demonstrate the power of our strengthened portfolio, expanded global scale, as well as meaningful synergy opportunities, all of which we identified as key reasons to bring together our two organizations. While our third quarter pro forma revenue increased a modest 3% sequentially, our adjusted EBITDA of $87 million represented a pro forma sequential increase of 38%. This speaks to our organization’s laser focus on achieving our targeted cost synergies, as well as the future operating leverage of our combined company’s fit-for-purpose cost structure as we prepare for the eventual global energy industry recovery.

“Amid this severe industry downturn, we further demonstrated the strong positive free cash flow profile of our company as we generated free cash flow of $99 million in the third quarter and we further strengthened our balance sheet by repaying $82 million of debt during the quarter. We ended the quarter with $527 million of liquidity, including $171 million of cash and $355 million of available capacity on our revolver. We remain focused on our free cash flow generation and we intend to continue paying down debt in coming quarters.

“We are proud of how our team is executing on our merger integration plans. Our execution and realization of cost synergies is accelerating and given our progress to date, we now expect to exit 2020 at an annualized run rate of $70 - $80 million. Given this performance and the pipeline of opportunities ahead of us, we are increasing our targeted cost synergies to $125 million (previously $75 million), which we still anticipate fully capturing within 24 months of the merger closing. In addition to the strong performance in cost synergies, we are starting to see early wins in revenue synergies. During the quarter, we secured a multi-year international contract for artificial lift in Eastern Europe, leveraging our Chemical Technologies footprint and relationships.

“Our performance is underpinned by our relentless focus on helping our customers succeed. In the recent supplier performance report on Artificial Lift published by Kimberlite, ChampionX was again ranked as the leader in customer loyalty, as measured by Net Promoter Score, based on feedback from 400+ customers from 200+ oil & gas companies globally. We have earned this honor five years in a row.

“As we look at the fourth quarter, while visibility continues to remain challenging due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID pandemic, combined with seasonal impacts of holidays and year end E&P budget exhaustion, we are encouraged by the stabilization in the price of oil and the October activity so far. On a consolidated basis, in the fourth quarter we expect revenue to be between $635 million and $650 million, driven by improvement in international Production Chemical Technologies revenue and Drilling Technologies activity, and we expect adjusted EBITDA, adjusting for approximately $6 million of favorable items in the third quarter which will not recur in the fourth quarter, of $80 million to $90 million.

“We are even more excited today about the possibilities for our combined company than we were at the closing of the merger. Our disciplined operating model, differentiated products and technology, strong free cash flow, and enhanced production-focused portfolio, combined with a strong and motivated team, will enable us to be a long-term winner in the evolving global oil & gas industry.”

In the third quarter of 2020, Production & Automation Technologies revenue increased $22.2 million, or 19%, sequentially, due to higher volumes as E&P capital spending began to recover from the rapid reduction experienced earlier in 2020. Sequentially, North America revenue increased 22% and international revenue increased 10%.

Revenue from digital products was $18.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, a decrease of $4.5 million, or 20%, compared to $23.1 million in the second quarter of 2020. The sequential decline in digital revenue was driven by reduced hardware sales due to reductions in E&P capital budgets, however, production and artificial lift related digital revenue increased modestly on a sequential basis.

In the third quarter of 2020, segment operating loss was $7.5 million. Segment adjusted EBITDA was $25.0 million, which increased $10.5 million sequentially, or 72%, primarily due to higher volume and the benefits of cost reduction actions and $2.8 million of isolated benefits, including gains on dispositions of facilities.

In the third quarter of 2020, Drilling Technologies revenue decreased by $5.2 million, or 25%, sequentially, driven by the continued decline in worldwide drilling activity, customer destocking of polycrystalline diamond cutter inventories, a product shift mix toward lower price diamond cutters, and lower diamond bearings revenue.

Diamond bearings revenue in the third quarter of 2020 was $2.0 million, down $0.3 million, or 12%, sequentially.

In the third quarter of 2020, segment operating loss was $5.1 million, and segment adjusted EBITDA was a negative $2.8 million. Sequentially, segment adjusted EBITDA decreased by $4.6 million, due to the lower volumes and shift in product mix, partially offset by the benefits of cost reduction actions.

Sequentially, the average worldwide and U.S. rig counts declined 18% and 36%, respectively. On a year-over-year basis, the average worldwide and U.S. rig counts declined 53% and 72%, respectively.

Results on a Pro Forma Basis

On June 3, 2020, Apergy Corporation closed on the acquisition of ChampionX Holding, Inc. (“the Transaction”) and assumed the name ChampionX Corporation (“ChampionX”). Actual results reflect the respective contributions from each company based on the close of the Transaction. For comparative purposes, management has also presented herein certain unaudited pro forma financial information as if the Transaction was completed on January 1, 2019, including results on a pro forma basis for revenue, income before income taxes, income before income taxes margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, segment revenue, segment operating profit (loss), adjusted segment EBITDA, adjusted segment EBITDA margin for the quarterly periods ended September 30, 2020, June 30, 2020, and September 30, 2019. The financial results on a pro forma basis are provided to assist investors in assessing ChampionX’s performance on a basis that includes the combined results of operations of both Apergy Corporation and ChampionX Holding, Inc. for the full reporting period. ChampionX management believes this unaudited pro forma historical financial information helps investors understand the long-term profitability trends of its newly combined business giving effect to the Transaction and facilitates comparisons of our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers. The historical financial results on a pro forma basis herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

About Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), this news release presents non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted segment EBITDA, adjusted segment EBITDA margin, adjusted net income attributable to ChampionX, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to ChampionX, pro forma adjusted EBITDA, pro forma adjusted EBITDA margin, pro forma segment revenue, pro forma segment operating profit (loss), and pro forma adjusted segment EBITDA reflect the core operating results of our businesses and help facilitate comparisons of operating performance across periods. In addition, free cash flow and free cash flow to revenue ratio are used by management to measure our ability to generate positive cash flow for debt reduction and to support our strategic objectives, while adjusted working capital provides a meaningful measure of operational results by showing changes caused by revenue or our operational initiatives. The foregoing non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP measures is included in the accompanying financial tables.

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 ChampionX’s overall financial performance.

_______________________

(1) Includes charges for goodwill and long-lived asset impairments of $657.3 million in our Production & Automation Technologies segment during the three months ended March 31, 2020. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, we incurred an impairment loss of $1.7 million related to the classification of our pressure vessel manufacturing business as held for sale.
(2) Separation and supplemental benefit costs primarily relates to separation costs, and to a lesser extent, enhanced or supplemental benefits provided to employees no longer participating in Dover Corporation benefit and compensation plans. Supplemental benefit costs are expected to be incurred through the end of 2020. During the three months ended September 30, 2019, pursuant to the provisions of the tax matters agreement with Dover Corporation, we recognized approximately $3.4 million of tax indemnification expense. This was settled and paid during the three months ended June 30, 2020, resulting in a benefit for the period as a result of the true-up of our accrual.
(3) Includes costs incurred in relation to business combinations, primarily related to the Merger of legacy ChampionX of $3.1 million and $60.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. Additionally, we incurred professional fees related to the integration of legacy ChampionX of $5.3 million and $17.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively.
(4) Includes incremental expense related to the step-up of inventory value resulting from the purchase accounting entries. This is partially offset by revenue associated with the amortization of a liability established as part of the Merger, representing unfavorable terms under the Cross Supply Agreement.
(5) Includes professional fees related to the remediation of material weaknesses identified during 2019 as well as professional fees incurred in connection with the goodwill impairment charge recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2020.
(6) We generally tax effect adjustments using a combined federal and state statutory income tax rate of approximately 23 percent.

ChampionX is providing the below unaudited supplemental historical financial information of the Company on a non-GAAP adjusted basis for the three months ended September 30, 2020, June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 and the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 as if the Merger was completed on January 1, 2019, to assist investors in assessing ChampionX’s historical performance on a basis that includes the combined results of operations of both legacy Apergy Corporation and legacy ChampionX. The unaudited pro forma historical financial information has been prepared by ChampionX using assumptions that ChampionX believes provide a reasonable basis for presenting the combination of the historical financial information of legacy Apergy and legacy ChampionX. As legacy ChampionX historically was unable to allocate certain charges on a segment basis, we have determined an allocation methodology for historical pro forma information to provide additional comparability amongst the legacy ChampionX segments. ChampionX management believes this unaudited supplemental historical financial information helps investors understand the long-term profitability trends of its newly combined business giving effect to the Merger and facilitates comparisons of our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers. The supplemental unaudited financial information herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The supplemental unaudited pro forma combined financial information does not purport to represent what the actual results of operations or the financial position of the combined company would have been had the Transactions occurred on the dates assumed, nor are they indicative of future results of operations or financial position of the combined company.

_______________________

(1) Includes the impact of the historical legacy ChampionX business on a stand-alone basis adjusted to give effect to the Merger under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 805, Business Combinations (“ASC 805”). The adjustments were prepared on the same basis as the adjustments included in our Registration Statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-236379) and include a decrease in amortization and depreciation resulting from the preliminary purchase price adjustments, an increase in interest expense associated with the new term loan facility, removal of acquisition and integration related costs attributable to the Merger as well as the tax impact of those adjustments.
