(OTCQB: DPDW) (“Deep Down” or the “Company”), a specialist in deepwater oil and gas production and distribution equipment and services, today reported results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020 (“Q2 2020”). Deep Down will hold a conference call tomorrow, Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 10:00 am Eastern Time to review its results and outlook (call details below).

Charles Njuguna, Deep Down’s CEO, commented, “Our second quarter results reflect the nature of the environment in which we continue to operate. Travel restrictions imposed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic continued to impede our ability to send teams to different parts of the world, which had a material impact on our revenues for the quarter. However, our cost containment efforts enabled us to mitigate the effect on our bottom-line, as evidenced by the significant reduction in our cash overhead expenses.

“While considerable uncertainty remains for the future, we are beginning to see early signs of increased service and bidding activity and remain focused on managing our cash flow and cost structure as we seek to identify and pursue opportunities to grow our business.”

Operating Results

Q2 2020 revenues decreased 48% to $2.7 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 (“Q2 2019”), primarily due to fewer projects in process. This decrease in project activity has been the result of the global economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Gross profit for Q2 2020 was $1.3 million, or 46 percent of revenues, compared to Q2 2019 gross profit of $2.0 million, or 37 percent of revenues. The decrease in gross profit on a year-over-year basis was driven by lower revenues; however, the increase in year-over-year gross profit percentage was primarily due to a higher proportion of rental revenue and receiving rent abatements during Q2 2020.

Q2 2020 selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses of $2.0 million were flat when compared to Q2 2019, which is primarily due to the inclusion of a $0.2 million severance charge related to the elimination of the Company’s Chief Operating Officer position and a $0.4 million reserve for doubtful accounts receivable related to prolonged customer payment terms and uncertainty around certain customers’ liquidity affected by the COVID-19 pandemic during Q2 2020. Excluding these two items, SG&A expenses for Q2 2020 totaled $1.3 million, or approximately a 35% reduction compared to the same period in 2019, which was driven by Deep Down’s ongoing efforts to reduce overhead expenses and the Company’s renewed focus on its core business.

During Q2 2020, the Company recorded charges of $4.5 million for the impairment of certain idle long-lived assets. The impairment was the result of an analysis of the carrying value of the assets and the Company’s inability to objectively project future cash flows from the sale or lease of these assets, particularly in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting global economic disruption. No impairment of long-lived assets was recorded during Q2 2019.

Deep Down’s modified EBITDA declined to negative $0.2 million in Q2 2020 compared to modified EBITDA of $0.3 million in Q2 2019. The decline in modified EBITDA was primarily due to decreased revenues as a result of the decline in offshore activity triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with a $0.4 million reserve for doubtful accounts receivable.

Due to the factors discussed above, Deep Down reported a Q2 2020 net loss of $5.3 million, or $0.42 loss per common share, compared with a Q2 2019 net loss of $0.1 million, or $0.01 loss per common share. Per share results are based on 12.5 million and 13.4 million weighted average shares outstanding in Q2 2020 and Q2 2019, respectively.

Financial Strength

At June 30, 2020, Deep Down had working capital of $3.9 million, which includes cash of $3.7 million and receivables of $4.4 million. Total shareholders’ equity was $8.0 million, or approximately $0.64 per common share. Given the Company’s current capital structure, Deep Down remains well-positioned to navigate through this challenging business environment.
