NOV Reports Third Quarter 2022 Earnings

  • Revenue of $1.89 billion, up 9% sequentially and 41% year-over-year

  • Operating Profit of $55 million, down $13 million sequentially and up $98 million year-over-year

  • Net Income of $32 million, or $0.08 per fully diluted share

  • Adjusted EBITDA* of $195 million, up $45 million sequentially and $139 million year-over-year

*Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income (Loss)" below.

HOUSTON, October 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NOV Inc. (NYSE: NOV) today reported third quarter 2022 revenues of $1.89 billion, an increase of 9 percent compared to the second quarter of 2022 and an increase of 41 percent compared to the third quarter of 2021. Net income for the third quarter of 2022 was $32 million, or 1.7 percent of sales, which included $63 million of Other Items (see Corporate Information for additional details). Operating profit was $55 million, or 2.9 percent of sales, and included $63 million of Other Items. Adjusted EBITDA increased sequentially to $195 million, or 10.3 percent of sales."

"NOV’s third quarter results reflect solid execution and ongoing improvements in demand from both oil & gas and renewables markets," stated Clay Williams, Chairman, President, and CEO. "Demand from international and offshore markets is building momentum, complementing what has already been a solid recovery in the North American land market. With international and North American revenues growing nine and ten percent, respectively, combined with strong growth from our energy transition initiatives, consolidated revenues improved nine percent sequentially. While supply chain disruptions and logistics friction remain a challenge, our team continued to improve execution to meet our customer’s needs, while working to grow profitability for our shareholders.

"After years of underinvestment, global spare production capacity is at critically low levels. However, the petroleum industry’s ability to ramp activity quickly to respond to the emerging energy shortage remains limited by, among other factors, availability of the technology and the equipment we provide. With industry capital spending still below levels sufficient to meet the world’s energy needs, despite recessionary concerns, our outlook for continued rising demand for NOV’s energy technologies is very bright."

Wellbore Technologies

Wellbore Technologies generated revenues of $741 million in the third quarter of 2022, an increase of 11 percent from the second quarter of 2022 and an increase of 46 percent from the third quarter of 2021. Operating profit was $74 million, or 10.0 percent of sales, and included $31 million of Other Items. Adjusted EBITDA increased $23 million sequentially and $68 million from the prior year to $145 million, or 19.6 percent of sales. Accelerating growth in international markets along with continued improvements in demand from North America led to the seventh straight quarter of improved results for the segment.

Completion & Production Solutions

Completion & Production Solutions generated revenues of $681 million in the third quarter of 2022, an increase of 7 percent from the second quarter of 2022 and an increase of 42 percent from the third quarter of 2021. Operating profit was $21 million, or 3.1 percent of sales, and included $19 million in Other Items. Adjusted EBITDA increased $24 million sequentially and $61 million from the prior year to $56 million, or 8.2 percent of sales. Continued improvements in execution and healthy demand drove improved results for the segment.

New orders booked during the quarter totaled $493 million, representing a book-to-bill of 116 percent when compared to the $425 million of orders shipped from backlog. As of September 30, 2022, backlog for capital equipment orders for Completion & Production Solutions was $1.48 billion, an increase of 2 percent from the second quarter of 2022 and an increase of 34 percent from the third quarter of 2021.

Rig Technologies

Rig Technologies generated revenues of $511 million in the third quarter of 2022, an increase of 11 percent from the second quarter of 2022 and an increase of 31 percent from the third quarter of 2021. Operating profit was $22 million, or 4.3 percent of sales, and included $13 million of Other Items. Adjusted EBITDA increased $11 million sequentially and $27 million from the prior year to $52 million, or 10.2 percent of sales. Accelerating revenue conversion from renewable energy projects and demand for the segment’s aftermarket parts and services drove the improvement in results.

New capital equipment orders booked during the quarter totaled $119 million, and backlog for capital equipment orders for Rig Technologies totaled $2.78 billion as of September 30, 2022.

Corporate Information

During the third quarter, the Company recognized $63 million of Other Items associated with classifying the Company’s Russian operations as assets held for sale and the loss on sale of its Belarusian business (including the businesses’ cumulative foreign currency translation adjustments), partially offset by credits related to gains on sales of previously reserved inventory (see Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income (Loss)).

Cash flow used in operations was $106 million for the quarter driven by the funding of working capital to support growth of the business.

As of September 30, 2022, the Company had total debt of $1.73 billion, with $2.00 billion available on its primary revolving credit facility, and $1.00 billion in cash and cash equivalents.

Significant Achievements

NOV successfully introduced its eVolveTM wired drill pipe optimization services to the Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) market and booked two additional optimization projects in the Middle East. NOV's M/D Totco™ business unit began providing eVolve services supporting drilling operations on two CCS wells in the North Sea. The project aims to capture CO2 from various onshore industries, transporting it by ships, and injecting it 1,000 – 2,000 meters below the seabed for permanent storage. Well integrity and placement are critical in CCS applications to ensure minimal leakage back into the atmosphere. The enhanced knowledge of formation properties and downhole location provided by real-time broadband data transmission from NOV’s wired drill pipe system enables our customers to construct the safest and most efficient carbon storage wells. NOV was also awarded two eVolve wired drill pipe optimization projects in the Middle East, one from a major integrated oil company and another from a large national oil company. The scope of both projects includes the use of NOV's full suite of optimization and visualization services, wired drill pipe, downhole drilling tools, and real-time sensors along the drill string.

NOV introduced the Sjøhest (Norwegian for "seahorse") vessel, a novel solution to improve offshore wind turbine blade installation processes. The Sjøhest is designed to work with a large installation jack-up vessel to install the latest generation of offshore wind turbines at heights of 175 to 200 meters. The larger installation vessel is used to install the towers and nacelles, while a dedicated, smaller, Sjøhest jack-up vessel connects directly to the tower with a telescopic leader boom, similar to how a seahorse uses its unique and strong grasping tail to resist ocean currents, creating an aligned and stable platform from which a trolley horizontally transports blades along the leader, rotates the blade into a vertical position, and connects it to the rotor. Splitting tower/nacelle and blade installation optimizes installation efficiencies, reduces fuel usage, and shortens installation times by up to 30%, thereby improving the economics while achieving a lower carbon footprint. Additionally, the enhanced stability provided by the Sjøhest system increases the weather window in which blade installation can occur, resulting in significant uptime benefits and further improving the efficiencies associated with offshore wind development.

NOV commercialized its ATOMTM RTX robotics system in the offshore drilling market. During the quarter, NOV booked the sale of its first ATOM RTX system for use by a major on an ultra-deepwater rig contracted for work in Brazil. Additionally, NOV booked the sale of its second land rig system to a leading North American drilling contractor. By enabling hands-free pipe-stabbing and doping, the system presents a step change in drilling efficiencies and safety, removing people from red zone operations and optimizing rig floor performance through automation.

NOV delivered its 100th NOVOSTM process automation platform. As the industry's only reflexive drilling system, the NOVOS platform allows drillers to automate repetitive drilling activities, such as making a connection offshore and coming off and on bottom, all while maintaining specific parameters for circulation, weight-on-bit, and more. The result is greater operational consistency for any driller, regardless of individual experience level, driving improved performance time and time again.

NOV has been awarded a contract to design, supply, and commission a Cascade Pump System for a Polyhalite mine on the northeast coast of England. Polyhalite is an organic super fertilizer that will be exported to customers around the world. The Cascade Pump System is a dual-purpose design that will de-water vertical mine shafts at depths up to 1,600 meters and pump cooling water to the mine shaft boring machine. In addition to the capital equipment order, NOV was awarded a five-year service contract to supply replacement pump units, critical spares, and onsite labor support during the mine shaft sinking process.

NOV continues to lead the evolution of the drill bit market with the launch of the ION+™ 5DX™ Shaped Cutter, the latest in our fit-for-purpose drill bit technology. Built upon the ION+ cutter platform, the ION+ 5DX polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) cutter incorporates an optimized multi-faceted geometry that improves mechanical toughness by approximately 60% vs. conventional cutters, resulting in remarkably effective performance when drilling challenging interbedded lithologies. Based on encouraging results in West Texas, the cutter technology has shown the ability to withstand high shock loads while providing high thermal stability in challenging applications. By providing better protection of the diamond table’s integrity, the ION+ 5DX cutter enables operators to achieve improvements in drilling distances, efficiencies, and, ultimately, well productivity.

NOV successfully deployed its automated VectorZIELTM rotary steerable system (RSS) into the U.S. onshore market for the first time. A large independent exploration and production (E&P) company used the VectorZIEL 800 tool to drill two 9,000-ft intermediate tangent sections with 100% tool reliability. Using the tool's automated trajectory control capability, including near-bit inclination and azimuth and closed loop steering, VectorZIEL system delivered desired well plans with significantly less manual intervention than conventional RSS systems.

NOV secured an order to provide Tuboscope's TK™-Liner and its Liner Hanger System for two geothermal wells in Hamburg, Germany. Though already established as a reliable solution for large-diameter tubulars used in geothermal applications, this will be the first TK-Liner project in Germany. TK-Ring II crossovers were custom designed to interface with the completion tools, providing cost-effective corrosion protection and thermal insulation.

NOV received its first offshore contract for the iNOVaTHERM™ portable treatment unit. Following a successful trial run in the UK, a major operator awarded NOV a three-well contract that is expected to run the entirety of 2023 for operations in the Ivar Aasen Field in the North Sea. The iNOVaTHERM treatment process for drilling waste at the wellsite advances the industry’s objectives of reducing its carbon footprint, lowering operational costs, and keeping people out of harm's way.
