Forum Energy Technologies Announces Third Quarter 2020 Results

·15 min read
  • Revenue of $104 million

  • Net loss of $22 million and diluted EPS of negative $0.19

  • Adjusted EBITDA of negative $10 million

  • Operating cash flow of $4 million and free cash flow of $6 million

  • Extended long-term debt maturity to 2025 and $129 million of liquidity

Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) today announced third quarter 2020 revenue of $104 million, a decrease of $10 million from the second quarter 2020. Orders received in the quarter increased by $7 million to $92 million. Net loss for the quarter was $22 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2020. Excluding $12 million, or $0.11 per share of special items, adjusted net loss was $0.30 per diluted share in the third quarter 2020, compared to an adjusted net loss of $0.29 per diluted share in the second quarter 2020. Adjusted EBITDA was negative $10 million in the third quarter 2020, an improvement of approximately $2 million from the second quarter 2020.

Special items in the third quarter 2020, on a pre-tax basis, included a $29 million gain on extinguishment of debt resulting from the debt exchange completed in August. This par for par exchange extended Forum's debt maturity date from 2021 to 2025. The $29 million gain reflects the accounting difference between the net carrying value of the 2021 Notes exchanged and the estimated fair value of the 2025 Notes. The gain was partially offset by impairments and restructuring charges of $11 million and $3 million of foreign exchange losses. See Tables 1-3 for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

Cris Gaut, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, "U.S. rig count and U.S. frac fleet count both declined sharply in the third quarter as compared with the second. However, it appears these measures of activity bottomed in the third quarter and have continued to increase into the fourth quarter. As a result, we believe the third quarter represents an inflection point in U.S. drilling and completion activity, as well as for Forum.

"Forum bookings increased 8% sequentially, driven by orders for our short-cycle completion products and our surface separation production equipment products. Orders for these products rose as our exploration and production and service company customers began to increase spending commitments. Our revenues, however, decreased due to the lower than anticipated activity levels in the quarter. Given the increases in U.S. land activity that have occurred already in the fourth quarter, we expect sequential improvement in both orders and revenue in line with activity.

"Our on-going efforts to size our operations for the current level of market activity continued to improve our earnings and our EBITDA increased sequentially despite lower revenues in the quarter. Accelerating cost reduction efforts allowed us to increase EBITDA despite lower revenue in the third quarter. We have significantly reduced fixed costs and are continuing initiatives to further decrease direct and structural costs to generate positive EBITDA, even at historically low levels of activity."

"I am pleased with the way our employees have responded to these extremely challenging market conditions and look forward to seeing the strong results Forum will deliver as market conditions continue to improve."

Segment Results

Drilling & Downhole segment revenue was $43 million and orders were $39 million, a decrease of 8% and 9%, respectively, from the second quarter 2020. Lower demand for drilling products in North America, resulting from the continued steep decline in drilling activity levels in the third quarter of 2020, was the primary driver of these decreases. Segment adjusted EBITDA was $(4) million, down $1 million from the second quarter, resulting primarily from the decline in revenues partially offset by cost reduction actions implemented in the second quarter. Drilling & Downhole operations focus primarily on capital equipment and consumable products for global drilling, well construction, artificial lift and subsea markets.

Completions segment revenue was $20 million, a sequential increase of $2 million, or 11%, as well completions activity began to grow in the third quarter. Orders in the third quarter were $18 million, an increase of $4 million, or 30%, from the second quarter 2020. Segment adjusted EBITDA was $(4) million, up $2 million from the second quarter due to a more favorable revenue mix and continued cost management. The Completions segment designs and manufactures products for the coiled tubing, stimulation and intervention markets.

Production segment revenue was $41 million, a decrease of $8 million, or 16% from the second quarter 2020, due to lower sales of both valves and surface production equipment. Orders in the third quarter were $35 million, a 21% increase sequentially, due to significant orders for well-site production equipment for deliveries throughout 2021 and one large international order for desalination process equipment. Segment adjusted EBITDA was $3 million, an increase of $1 million sequentially, as revenue declines were more than offset by cost reductions from restructuring actions implemented in the second quarter. 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.

(2) Includes transaction expenses, gain/(loss) on disposal of assets, and impairments of goodwill, intangible assets, property and equipment.

(3) The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA is useful to the Company's investors because 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, EBITDA is a widely used benchmark in the investment community. See the attached separate schedule for the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

(2) Includes transaction expenses, gain (loss) on disposal of assets, contingent consideration benefit, and impairments of goodwill, intangible assets, property and equipment.

(3) The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA is useful to the Company's investors because 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, EBITDA is a widely used benchmark in the investment community. See the attached separate schedule for the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

(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) 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.
