Nine Energy Service Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Results

·16 min read
  • Full year 2019 revenue, net loss and adjusted EBITDAA of $832.9 million, $(217.8) million and $113.0 million, respectively

  • Full year 2019 basic EPS of $(7.43) and $0.32 adjusted basic EPSB

  • Full year 2019 cash flow from operations of $101.3 million

  • As of December 31, 2019, cash and cash equivalents of $93.0 million

  • Revenue, net loss and adjusted EBITDA of $163.4 million, $(220.5) million and $11.6 million, respectively for the fourth quarter of 2019

  • Fourth quarter 2019 basic EPS of $(7.51) and $(0.57) adjusted basic EPS

Nine Energy Service, Inc. ("Nine" or the "Company") (NYSE: NINE) reported fourth quarter 2019 revenues of $163.4 million, net loss of $(220.5) million and adjusted EBITDA of $11.6 million. The fourth quarter net loss of $(220.5) million, or $(7.51) per basic share, includes intangible assets, PP&E and goodwill impairments of $106.3 million associated with the Coiled Tubing service line and an intangible asset impairment of $95.0 million associated with the Completion Tools service line. For the fourth quarter 2019, adjusted net lossD was $(16.8) million, or $(0.57) adjusted basic earnings per share. During the fourth quarter, the Company generated ROICc of -3%.

The Company had provided original fourth quarter 2019 revenue guidance between $150.0 and $160.0 million and adjusted EBITDA guidance between $11.0 and $15.0 million, with actual results for revenue outperforming Management’s original guidance range and results for adjusted EBITDA falling within Management’s original guidance.

"The fourth quarter was as anticipated, with revenue outperforming and adjusted EBITDA falling within Management’s original guidance range," said Ann Fox, President and Chief Executive Officer, Nine Energy Service. "Additionally, we continued our strong working capital management into Q4, ending the year with a cash balance of $93.0 million even with interest, capex and the retention bonus associated with the Magnum acquisition during the fourth quarter."

"As expected, we saw drilling and completion activity decline in Q4 due to holidays, weather and budget exhaustion. Market share for Nine remained stable across the majority of service lines, but we did see full quarter realizations of Q3 pricing concessions, which led to the majority of the margin compression quarter over quarter. Coiled Tubing has been the hardest hit service line from a pricing and activity perspective due to an over-supply of large diameter units coming into the market, coupled with a decrease in activity across regions."

"Despite a very tough market in 2019, the execution of our strategic initiatives throughout the year has been very successful. We effectively commercialized our low-temperature dissolvable plug for Q1 2020, which continues to be run and trialed with many customers across multiple basins, providing Nine a first-mover advantage in the low-temp dissolvable market. Additionally, the timeline for our new high-temp dissolvable and composite plug remain on schedule. These technology developments were accomplished in large part because of our acquisition of Magnum and collaboration between both legacy teams around both IP design and materials science. We also successfully completed the sale of our Production Solutions segment, and closed wireline operations in Canada, which will be accretive to ROIC, adjusted EBITDA margins and cash generation. Our operational teams were able to once again prove their ability to grow market share in a declining activity environment, with Nine’s percentage of U.S. stages completed increasing over 100 basis points in 2019. I am also extremely proud of our employees as Nine ended the year with the lowest and best TRIR safety score in the Company’s history at 0.77."

"Throughout 2018 and 2019 we re-shaped the Company to align with our strategy of being asset-light and building additional barriers to entry, which we believe will enable us to increase profitability, expand margins and increase free cash flow for the future. We have just begun to see our thesis materialize with strong cash generation in the second half of 2019, which we anticipate continuing into 2020 and beyond. 2020 capex will decrease by over 60%, which will serve as a sustainable run-rate as we transition the derivation of more of our top-line revenue contribution from completion tools."

"Q1 2020 is off to a slower start versus this time in 2019, and we anticipate Q1 2020 being relatively flat to Q4 2019. Despite market conditions, we are very optimistic about Nine’s opportunity to differentiate with our unique positioning in the market to grow within our tools business. Our team has and will remain focused on driving value for our shareholders, customers and employees and will continue to follow our returns-based growth strategy into 2020."

For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company reported revenues of $832.9 million, net loss of $(217.8) million and adjusted EBITDA of $113.0 million. Full year 2019 adjusted net income was $9.4 million, or $0.32 per adjusted basic share. For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company generated ROIC of 6%.

Completion Solutions

During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company’s Completion Solutions segment, which includes the Company’s cementing, completion tools, wireline and coiled tubing services, reported revenues of $163.4 million and adjusted gross profitE of $23.4 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company’s Completion Solutions segment reported revenues of $774.7 million and adjusted gross profit of $154.5 million.

Other Financial Information

During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company reported selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense of $20.3 million, compared to $19.2 million for the third quarter of 2019. Depreciation and amortization expense ("D&A") in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $15.4 million, compared to $16.8 million for the third quarter of 2019.

For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company reported SG&A expense of $81.3 million, compared to year ended December 31, 2018 SG&A expense of $73.1 million. For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company reported D&A expense of $68.9 million, compared to year ended December 31, 2018 D&A expense of $63.8 million.

The Company recognized an income tax benefit of approximately $2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and an overall income tax benefit for the year of approximately $3.9 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 1.8% for 2019. The fourth quarter income tax benefit was primarily attributable to a change in the Company’s deferred taxes due to the impairment associated with our Coiled Tubing and Completion Tools service lines. Cash tax expense for 2019 was approximately $0.4 million.

Liquidity and Capital Expenditures

For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company reported net cash provided by operating activities of $101.3 million compared to the year ended December 31, 2018 net cash provided by operating activities of $89.6 million.

During the fourth quarter of 2019, total capital expenditures were $14.9 million, of which approximately 18% related to maintenance capital expenditures, compared to total capital expenditures of $10.0 million for the third quarter of 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company reported total capital expenditures of $62.1 million of which approximately 22% related to maintenance capital expenditures, which fell within Management’s original guidance, compared to the year ended December 31, 2018 total capital expenditures of $52.6 million. Approximately $4.8 million in 2019 capital expenditures are delayed into 2020.

As of December 31, 2019, Nine’s cash and cash equivalents were $93.0 million and the Company had $99.2 million of availability under the revolving credit facility, which remains undrawn, resulting in a total liquidity position of $192.2 million as of December 31, 2019.

a) Impairment charges were due to deteriorating market conditions in the Company's Completion Solutions segment attributed to the

reduction of the need for coil tubing during the drill-out phase of the overall completions process attributed to a recent decline in exploration and production capital budgets and activity, the over-supply of coil tubing units and the introduction of dissolvable plug technology.

b) Impairment charges were primarily due to transition of certain trade names associated with recent acquisitions to the Company's trade names in order to better funnel and allocate resources, create a stronger identity, facilitate cross-selling and streamline and simplify

communication with existing customers.

(c) Amounts for each period presented represent transaction and integration costs, including the cost of inventory that was stepped up to fair value during purchase accounting associated with recent acquisitions, including the Company’s IPO.

(d) Amount represents commitment fee associated with a potential bridge financing in the fourth quarter of 2018.

AAdjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted for (i) property and equipment, goodwill, and/or intangible asset impairment charges, (ii) transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions and our IPO, (iii) loss or gains on the sale of subsidiaries, (iv) loss or gains from the revaluation of contingent liabilities, (v) loss or gains on equity method investment, (vi) stock-based compensation expense, (vii) loss or gains on sale of property and equipment and (viii) other expenses or charges to exclude certain items which we believe are not reflective of ongoing performance of our business, such as legal expenses and settlement costs related to litigation outside the ordinary course of business and restructuring costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are useful because they allow us to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period without regard to our financing methods or capital structure and help identify underlying trends in our operations that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the impairments, acquisitions and dispositions and costs that are not reflective of the ongoing performance of our business.

BAdjusted Basic Earnings Per Share is defined as adjusted net income (loss), divided by weighted average basic shares outstanding. Management believes Adjusted Basic Earnings Per Share is useful because it allows us to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period and help identify underlying trends in our operations that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the impairments and acquisitions.

CReturn on Invested Capital ("ROIC") is defined as after-tax net operating profit (loss), divided by average total capital. We define after-tax net operating profit (loss) as net income (loss) plus (i) property and equipment, goodwill, and/or intangible asset impairment charges, (ii) transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions and our IPO, (iii) interest expense (income), (iv) restructuring charges, (v) loss or gain on the sale of subsidiaries, and (vi) the provision or benefit for deferred income taxes. We define total capital as book value of equity plus the book value of debt less balance sheet cash and cash equivalents. We compute the average of the current and prior period-end adjusted total capital for use in this analysis. Management believes ROIC is a meaningful measure because it quantifies how well we generate operating income relative to the capital we have invested in our business and illustrates the profitability of a business or project taking into account the capital invested. Management uses ROIC to assist them in capital resource allocation decisions and in evaluating business performance.

DAdjusted Net Income (Loss) is defined as net income (loss) adjusted for (i) property and equipment, goodwill and/or intangible asset impairment charges, (ii) transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions and our IPO, including the commitment fee associated with a potential bridge financing in connection with an acquisition, (iii) restructuring charges, (iv) loss or gain on the sale of subsidiaries and (v) the income tax impact of such adjustments. Management believes Adjusted Net Income is useful because it allows us to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period and help identify underlying trends in our operations that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the impairments and acquisitions.

EAdjusted Gross Profit is defined as revenues less cost of revenues excluding depreciation and amortization. This measure differs from the GAAP definition of gross profit because we do not include the impact of depreciation and amortization, which represent non-cash expenses. Our management uses adjusted gross profit to evaluate operating performance. We prepare adjusted gross profit (excluding depreciation and amortization) to eliminate the impact of depreciation and amortization because we do not consider depreciation and amortization indicative of our core operating performance.
