  • Bookings increased 34% sequentially to $124 million

  • Revenue increased 9% sequentially to $113 million

  • Net loss of $33 million and diluted EPS of negative $5.85

  • Adjusted EBITDA improved $7 million sequentially to negative $3 million

  • Operating cash flow of $2 million and free cash flow of $4 million

  • Cash of $129 million and total liquidity of $240 million

Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) today announced fourth quarter 2020 revenue of $113 million, an increase of $9 million from the third quarter 2020. Orders received in the quarter increased by $32 million to $124 million. Net loss for the quarter was $33 million, or $5.85 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $22 million, or $3.86 per diluted share, for the third quarter 2020. Excluding $6 million, or $1.05 per share of special items, adjusted net loss was $4.80 per diluted share in the fourth quarter 2020, compared to an adjusted net loss of $6.00 per diluted share in the third quarter 2020. Adjusted EBITDA improved by $7 million sequentially to negative $2.6 million.

Special items in the fourth quarter 2020, on a pre-tax basis, included an $88 million gain from the ABZ and Quadrant valve brand asset sale. The gain was offset by $86 million of asset impairments and restructuring costs as well as $7 million in foreign exchange losses and $2 million of transaction expenses. See Tables 1-3 for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

Cris Gaut, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, "In the fourth quarter, drilling and completion activity accelerated as oil and natural gas prices improved. We took advantage of this activity increase as our bookings were up by 34% and revenue increased 9%, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 110%.

"In order to improve our returns as the market recovers, we restructured our portfolio, exiting lower margin products that would dilute our results. These changes focus our resources on higher margin, differentiated products with better leverage to improving activity levels.

"During the fourth quarter, we closed the sale of our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands for $105 million in cash, reducing our net debt by roughly one-third. Compared to the prior year end, net debt was down $141 million to $201 million at December 31, 2020. We ended the fourth quarter with $129 million in cash on-hand and only $13 million drawn on our credit facility, resulting in liquidity of $240 million.

"The steps taken by Forum in the fourth quarter position us to perform well and take advantage of market opportunities afforded to us in the rising-market environment."

Segment Results

Drilling & Downhole segment revenue was $50 million and orders were $58 million, an increase of 16% and 49%, respectively, from the third quarter 2020. The revenue increase was driven by higher demand for our premium drilling handling tools for international markets. Our subsea product line received a significant non-oil and gas order in the fourth quarter. Segment adjusted EBITDA was $1 million, up $5 million from the third quarter, resulting primarily from higher revenues and further cost reductions. Drilling & Downhole operations focus primarily on capital equipment and consumable products for global well construction, artificial lift and subsea markets.

Completions segment revenue was $31 million, a sequential increase of $11 million, or 56%, due to the strong increase in well completions activity in the fourth quarter. Orders in the fourth quarter were $30 million, an increase of $12 million, or 65%, from the third quarter 2020. Segment adjusted EBITDA was $1 million, up $5 million from the third quarter primarily due increased operating leverage on the higher sales volumes. The Completions segment designs and manufactures products for the coiled tubing, wireline and stimulation markets.

Production segment revenue was $33 million, a decrease of $8 million, or 20% from the third quarter 2020, due to continued customer de-stocking of both valves and surface production equipment. Orders in the fourth quarter were $36 million, a 3% increase sequentially. Segment adjusted EBITDA decreased by $3 million sequentially to break-even as a result of the decline in revenue. The Production segment manufactures land well site production equipment, desalination process equipment, and a wide range of valves for upstream, midstream and process industry customers.

(1) The book-to-bill ratio is calculated by dividing the dollar value of orders received in a given period by the revenue earned in that same period. The Company believes that this ratio is useful to investors because it provides an indication of whether the demand for our products, in the markets in which the Company operates, is strengthening or declining. A ratio of greater than one is indicative of improving market demand, while a ratio of less than one would suggest weakening demand. In addition, the Company believes the book-to-bill ratio provides more meaningful insight into future revenues for our business than other measures, such as order backlog, because the majority of the Company's products are activity based consumable items or shorter cycle capital equipment, neither of which are typically ordered by customers far in advance.

(1) The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS are useful to the Company's investors because (i) each of these financial metrics are useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the excluded items to be outside of the Company's normal operating results and (ii) EBITDA is an appropriate measure of evaluating the Company's operating performance and liquidity that reflects the resources available for strategic opportunities including, among others, investing in the business, strengthening the balance sheet, repurchasing the Company's securities and making strategic acquisitions. In addition, these benchmarks are widely used in the investment community. See the attached separate schedule for the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

(2) Foreign exchange, net primarily relates to cash and receivables denominated in U.S. dollars by some of our non-U.S. subsidiaries that report in a local currency, and therefore the loss has no economic impact in dollar terms.

In addition, these benchmarks are widely used in the investment community. See the attached separate schedule for the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

(2) The difference between the fair value of our interest in Ashtead and the book value of the underlying net assets resulted in a basis difference non-operating gain, which was allocated to fixed assets, intangible assets and goodwill based on their respective fair values as of the transaction date. This amount represents the amortization of the basis difference gain associated with intangible assets and property, plant and equipment which is included in equity earnings (loss) over the estimated life of the respective assets.

(3) Foreign exchange, net primarily relates to cash and receivables denominated in U.S. dollars by some of our non-U.S. subsidiaries that report in a local currency, and therefore the loss has no economic impact in dollar terms.
