Independence Contract Drilling, Inc. Reports Unaudited Financial Results For The Fourth Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2021

HOUSTON, March 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Independence Contract Drilling, Inc. (the "Company" or "ICD") (NYSE: ICD) today reported financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021.

Fourth quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Net loss, as defined below, of $31.5 million, or $3.23 per share.

  • Adjusted net loss, as defined below, of $13.2 million, or $1.35 per share.

  • Adjusted EBITDA, as defined below, of $1.5 million, representing an approximate 119% sequential improvement from the third quarter of 2021.

  • Net debt, excluding finance leases and net of deferred financing costs, of $136.3 million.

  • Marketed fleet utilization of 62%.

  • Fully burdened margin of $3,538 per day.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company reported revenues of $28.6 million, a net loss of $31.5 million, or $3.23 per share, adjusted net loss (defined below) of $13.2 million, or $1.35 per share, and adjusted EBITDA (defined below) of $1.5 million. These results compare to revenues of $13.3 million, a net loss of $43.1 million, or $7.02 per share, adjusted net loss of $16.3 million, or $2.65 per share, and adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, and revenues of $24.0 million, a net loss of $4.3 million, or $0.59 per share, an adjusted net loss of $13.7 million, or $1.87 per share, and adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2021.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company reported revenues of $88.0 million, a net loss of $66.7 million, or $8.89 per share, an adjusted net loss of $57.9 million, or $7.72 per share, and adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.3 million. This compares to revenues of $83.4 million, a net loss of $96.6 million, or $19.69 per share, an adjusted net loss of $53.3 million, or $10.86 per share, and adjusted EBITDA of $7.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Chief Executive Officer Anthony Gallegos commented, "ICD exited 2021 with all of our operational and financial goals intact, and market conditions continue to improve rapidly as the supply of pad-optimal super spec rigs has become quite tight. Looking forward, although I expect the pace of rig reactivations in the industry to slow compared to 2021 levels, dayrate momentum in 2022 continues to accelerate. Because we have intentionally favored short-term pad-to-pad contracts in this improving operating environment, ICD is very well positioned to quickly see the results from these market improvements. Based upon signed contracts we have in hand today, we expect to see significant sequential improvements in revenue and margin per day in both the first and second quarters of 2022 and are optimistic regarding further improvements during the back half of the year."

Quarterly Operational Results

In the fourth quarter of 2021, operating days increased sequentially by 9% compared to the third quarter of 2021. The Company's marketed fleet operated at 62% utilization and recorded 1,378 revenue days, compared to 707 revenue days in the fourth quarter of 2020, and 1,268 revenue days in the third quarter of 2021. The Company currently expects operating days in the first quarter of 2022 to increase sequentially by approximately 8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021.

Operating revenues in the fourth quarter of 2021 totaled $28.6 million, compared to $13.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $24.0 million in the third quarter of 2021. Revenue per day in the fourth quarter of 2021 was $19,042, compared to $16,720 in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $17,141 in the third quarter of 2021. The sequential increase quarter over quarter in revenue per day was driven by higher dayrates on contract renewals and reactivated rigs. The Company currently expects revenue per day in the first quarter of 2022 to increase sequentially by approximately 14% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021.

Operating costs in the fourth quarter of 2021 totaled $24.0 million, compared to $12.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $20.1 million in third quarter of 2021. There were no operating costs during the fourth quarter of 2021 associated with the reactivation of rigs compared to $0.6 million during the fourth quarter of 2020 and $0.1 million during the third quarter of 2021. Fully burdened operating costs were $15,504 per day in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $13,719 in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $13,685 in the third quarter of 2021. Sequential increases in operating costs per day were driven primarily by higher labor costs associated with increases in field-level wages, including approximately $343 per day associated with field manager incentive compensation accruals. The Company currently expects operating costs in the first quarter of 2022 to increase sequentially by approximately 4%, driven by higher labor costs and to a lesser extent, inflationary pressures on other goods and services.

Excluding the impact from reactivation costs, fully burdened rig operating margins in the fourth quarter of 2021 were $3,538 per day, compared to $3,001 per day in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $3,456 per day in the third quarter of 2021. Excluding the impact of year-end incentive compensation accruals for field level managers of approximately $343 per day, margin per day was $3,881. The Company currently expects per day operating margins in the first quarter of 2022 to increase sequentially between 45% and 50% compared to adjusted fourth quarter 2021 margin per day of $3,881, driven primarily by favorable dayrate momentum.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2021 were $3.9 million (including $0.8 million of non-cash compensation), compared to $3.4 million (including $0.4 million of non-cash compensation) in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $4.1 million (including $0.8 million of non-cash compensation) in the third quarter of 2021. The sequential decrease in cash selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to a reduction in incentive compensation accruals, partially offset by higher recruiting and onboarding expenses and professional fees.

Drilling Operations Update

The Company exited the fourth quarter with 16 rigs operating and 17 contracted, with our 17th rig reactivating in January 2022. Overall, the Company's operating rig count averaged 15.0 rigs during the quarter. The Company's backlog of drilling contracts with original terms of six months or longer was $16.1 million as of December 31, 2021. This backlog excludes rigs operating on shorter term pad-to-pad drilling contracts. All of this backlog is expected to be realized during 2022.

Capital Expenditures and Liquidity Update

Cash outlays for capital expenditures in the fourth quarter of 2021, net of asset sales and recoveries, were $6.5 million. The Company's capital expenditure budget for 2022, before asset sales and recoveries is $10.0 million, including approximately $8.0 million for maintenance capital expenditures assuming a 17-rig operating fleet.

Looking forward, the Company continues to evaluate opportunities for a comprehensive refinancing of its existing term loan indebtedness, which would likely include the issuances of equity or equity-linked securities. The Company also continues to evaluate opportunities to reactivate additional drilling rigs, the timing for which will likely be based upon the Company successfully completing any such comprehensive refinancing.

As of December 31, 2021, the Company had cash on hand of $4.1 million, a revolving line of credit with availability of $11.3 million, and $135.9 million principal amount outstanding under its term loan. The term loan includes a committed accordion of which $11.9 million remained undrawn as of December 31, 2021.

During the fourth quarter, the Company issued an aggregate of 2.2 million shares of its common stock through at-the-market ("ATM") offerings and pursuant to its equity line of credit arrangement raising $7.6 million of gross proceeds. The equity line of credit was terminated at the end of the fourth quarter of 2021. Subsequent to 2021, the Company has issued 1.1 million shares of its common stock in ATM offerings raising gross proceeds of $3.6 million.

The following table provides various financial and operational data for the Company's operations for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 and September 30, 2021 and the year ended December 31, 2021 and 2020. This information contains non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's operating performance. The Company believes this non-GAAP information is useful because it provides a means to evaluate the operating performance of the Company on an ongoing basis using criteria that are used by the Company's management. Additionally, it highlights operating trends and aids analytical comparisons. However, this information has limitations and should not be used as an alternative to operating income (loss) or cash flow performance measures determined in accordance with GAAP, as this information excludes certain costs that may affect the Company's operating performance in future periods.

There were no rig decommissioning costs during the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 and September 30, 2021, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of the Company's financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. In addition, adjusted EBITDA is consistent with how EBITDA is calculated under the Company's credit facility for purposes of determining the Company's compliance with various financial covenants. The Company defines "adjusted net (loss) income" as net (loss) income before: asset impairment, net; gain or loss on disposition of assets, net; intangible revenue; severance and merger-related expenses; gain or loss on extinguishment of debt and other adjustments. The Company defines "EBITDA" as earnings (or loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, and the Company defines "adjusted EBITDA" as EBITDA before stock-based compensation, non-cash asset impairments, gain or loss on disposition of assets, gain or loss on extinguishment of debt and other non-recurring items added back to, or subtracted from, net income for purposes of calculating EBITDA under the Company's credit facilities. Neither adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is a measure of net income as determined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

Management believes adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are useful because they allow the Company's stockholders to more effectively evaluate the Company's operating performance and compliance with various financial covenants under the Company's credit facility and compare the results of the Company's operations from period to period and against the Company's peers without regard to the Company's financing methods or capital structure or non-recurring, non-cash transactions. The Company excludes the items listed above from net income (loss) in calculating adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within the Company's industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. None of adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA should be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss), the most closely comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or liquidity. Certain items excluded from adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company's financial performance, such as a company's return on assets, cost of capital and tax structure. The Company's presentation of adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company's results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. The Company's computations of adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
