NOW Inc. (NYSE: DNOW) announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue was $361 million for the first quarter of 2021

  • Net loss was $10 million and non-GAAP net loss excluding other costs was $5 million for the first quarter of 2021

  • Diluted loss per share was $0.09 and non-GAAP diluted loss per share excluding other costs was $0.04 for the first quarter of 2021

  • Non-GAAP EBITDA excluding other costs for the first quarter of 2021 was $1 million

  • Cash and cash equivalents was $374 million and long-term debt was zero at March 31, 2021

David Cherechinsky, President and CEO of NOW Inc., added, "We are very pleased with the positive results we achieved this quarter, driven by strong 13% sequential revenue growth. We closed our second acquisition this year in April and remain debt free. Without the heavy cost of debt burden, we have plenty of strategic and balance sheet flexibility with ample liquidity to fund organic growth and to pursue additional acquisition opportunities.

Last year, we committed to achieve break-even EBITDA in the first half of 2021 and achieved our goal a quarter early. I am proud of every one of our employees as their contributions drove such strong results.

We will continue to innovate, focus on both legacy and emerging end-markets, invest in our DigitalNOW® technologies and advance a customer order fulfillment migration to improve our competitiveness as we build a compelling suite of solutions we believe will be unmatched in our industry."

Prior to the earnings conference call a presentation titled "NOW Inc. First Quarter 2021 Key Takeaways" will be available on the Company’s Investor Relations website.

(1)

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we disclose various non-GAAP financial measures in our quarterly earnings press releases and other public disclosures. The non-GAAP financial measures include: (i) earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) excluding other costs, (ii) net income (loss) excluding other costs and (iii) diluted earnings (loss) per share excluding other costs. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain other costs and therefore has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure is included in the schedules herein.

(2)

Other costs primarily included impairment charges, as well as net separation and transaction-related expenses, which were included in operating loss.

(3)

EBITDA % excluding other costs is defined as EBITDA excluding other costs divided by Revenue.

(4)

Other costs, net of tax, for the three months ended March 31, 2021 included an expense of $1 million from changes in the valuation allowance recorded against the Company’s deferred tax assets; and $4 million related to the impairment charges, as well as net separation and transaction-related expenses. The Company has excluded the impact of these items on its valuation allowance in computing net income (loss) excluding other costs.

(5)

Totals may not foot due to rounding.
