  • Total liquidity position of $74.5 million as of June 30, 2022

  • Revenue, net loss and adjusted EBITDAA of $142.3 million, $(1.0) million and $18.9 million, respectively, for the second quarter of 2022

  • Second quarter 2022 basic loss per share of $(0.03)

  • For the second quarter of 2022 the Company generated ROICB of 11.4%.

HOUSTON, August 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nine Energy Service, Inc. ("Nine" or the "Company") (NYSE: NINE) reported second quarter 2022 revenues of $142.3 million, net loss of $(1.0) million and adjusted EBITDA of $18.9 million. For the second quarter of 2022, adjusted net lossC was $(0.2) million, or $(0.01) adjusted basic loss per shareD.

The Company had provided original second quarter 2022 revenue guidance between $130.0 and $140.0 million, with actual results falling above the provided range and representing a sequential revenue increase of approximately 22% quarter over quarter.

"We had another very strong growth quarter," said Ann Fox, President and Chief Executive Officer, Nine Energy Service, "with pricing and activity increases across the majority of our service lines."

"We remain very optimistic on the market, and we continue to implement net price increases, enabling us to drive strong incremental margins again this quarter. Our cementing service line continues to outperform market drivers, increasing sequential quarterly revenue by approximately 22%, versus the average U.S. rig count, which increased by approximately 13%. Our Stinger Dissolvable plug technology is performing well in the field, demonstrated by the 33% increase in total units sold quarter over quarter, despite EIA-reported U.S. completions increasing by only 3%. Coiled tubing revenue increased by approximately 28%, driven by both higher utilization and price increases. There continues to be a shortage of qualified labor and equipment in the industry, which has been the main catalyst for price increases for Nine. This will only be exacerbated by any incremental activity added throughout the remainder of this year and into 2023."

"The outlook for the remainder of 2022 and 2023 is positive. It is difficult to gauge the magnitude of any potential recessionary pressures, however, we believe North American shale and short-cycle projects will be vital for global supply. Additionally, oilfield service companies, including Nine, are demonstrating capital discipline, which has limited available equipment in the market. Any capital equipment orders being placed are delayed up to 12 months and will need to be staffed. This backdrop sets up very well for Nine. Commodity prices remain very supportive for our customers, and we anticipate we will continue to increase prices throughout the remainder of 2022 and into 2023."

"With what we know today, we anticipate revenue, adjusted EBITDA and cash flow to improve sequentially for Q3. I like Nine’s geographic and service line diversity and believe it positions us well for further growth. We have increased profitability over the last two quarters with additional runway to implement net price increases within our service lines and increase volumes for our tools."

Operating Results

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company reported revenues of $142.3 million, gross profit of $19.8 million and adjusted gross profitE of $29.6 million. Gross profit increased by approximately 56% quarter over quarter, and adjusted gross profit increased by approximately 31% quarter over quarter. During the second quarter, the Company generated ROIC of 11.4%.

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company reported selling, general and administrative expense of $12.5 million. Depreciation and amortization expense in the second quarter of 2022 was $10.3 million.

The Company’s tax benefit for the second quarter of 2022 was approximately $0.5 million and $0.4 million year to date. The benefit for 2022 is the result of our tax position in state and non-U.S. tax jurisdictions.

Liquidity and Capital Expenditures

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company reported net cash used in operating activities of $(0.4) million. Capital expenditures totaled $3.7 million during the second quarter of 2022.

As of June 30, 2022, Nine’s cash and cash equivalents were $22.4 million, and the Company had $52.1 million of availability under the revolving credit facility, resulting in a total liquidity position of $74.5 million as of June 30, 2022. On June 30, 2022, the Company had $27.0 million of borrowings under the 2018 ABL Credit Facility.

AAdjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted for (i) goodwill, intangible asset, and/or property and equipment impairment charges, (ii) transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions, (iii) loss or gain on revaluation of contingent liabilities, (iv) loss or gain on the extinguishment of debt, (v) loss or gain on the sale of subsidiaries, (vi) restructuring charges, (vii) stock-based compensation and cash award expense, (viii) loss or gain on sale of property and equipment, and (ix) 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. 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.

BReturn 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) goodwill, intangible asset, and/or property and equipment impairment charges, (ii) transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions, (iii) interest expense (income), (iv) restructuring charges, (v) loss (gain) on the sale of subsidiaries, (vi) loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt, and (vii) the provision (benefit) for deferred income taxes. We define total capital as book value of equity (deficit) plus the book value of debt less balance sheet cash and cash equivalents. We compute the average of the current and prior period-end total capital for use in this analysis. Management believes ROIC provides useful information 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.

CAdjusted Net Income (Loss) is defined as net income (loss) adjusted for (i) goodwill, intangible asset, and/or property and equipment impairment charges, (ii) transaction and integration costs related to acquisitions, (iii) restructuring charges, (iv) loss or gain on the sale of subsidiaries, (v) loss or gain on the extinguishment of debt and (vi) the tax impact of such adjustments. Management believes Adjusted Net Income (Loss) 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 helps identify underlying trends in our operations that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the impairments and acquisitions.

DAdjusted Basic Earnings (Loss) Per Share is defined as adjusted net income (loss), divided by weighted average basic shares outstanding. Management believes Adjusted Basic Earnings (Loss) 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.

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