Parker Drilling Reports 2019 Third Quarter Results

HOUSTON, Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Drilling Company (PKD) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019, which included a net income of $4.0 million, or diluted earnings of $0.27 per share, on revenues of $160.1 million. Third quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $36.6 million (1).

Gary Rich, the Company's President and CEO, said, "Despite the challenging industry environment, we achieved strong third quarter results and took additional steps toward strengthening our balance sheet by paying down $35 million of debt, which will provide significant interest savings going forward, while maintaining ample liquidity as our cash balance is over $100 million at the end of the quarter.

"Our U.S. rental tools segment results decreased as expected during the period, due to declining U.S. land activity, but was partially offset by improved deepwater performance.

"Strategically, our Company's international presence bodes well for the burgeoning up-cycle, both in our drilling and rental tools businesses. Through nine months, our year over year International and Alaska Drilling and International Rental Tools segment revenues have increased 38.6 percent and 17.0 percent, respectively, and we continue to see high levels of tendering activity and new project awards."

Mr. Rich added, "We are very pleased to have received several significant contract awards since the end of the second quarter - all aligned with our focus on capital efficiency. Among these awards are two long-term projects allowing idle drilling rigs to return to service, one new O&M project, and a number of meaningful contract extensions."

Third Quarter Review

Parker Drilling's revenues for the 2019 third quarter, compared with the 2019 second quarter, increased 2.6 percent to $160.1 million from $156.0 million. Operating gross margin, excluding depreciation and amortization expense (the "gross margin") decreased 1.8 percent to $42.6 million from $43.4 million and gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 26.6 percent, compared with 27.8 percent for the 2019 second quarter.

Rental Tools Services

For the Company's rental tools services business, which is comprised of the U.S. rental tools and international rental tools segments, third quarter revenues decreased 2.4 percent to $73.3 million from $75.1 million for the second quarter. Gross margin decreased 9.9 percent to $27.6 million from $30.6 million, and gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 37.6 percent compared with 40.8 percent for the prior period.

U.S. Rental Tools

U.S. rental tools segment revenues decreased 7.0 percent to $49.3 million in the 2019 third quarter from $52.9 million for the 2019 second quarter. Gross margin decreased 14.2 percent to $23.7 million in the third quarter, compared with gross margin of $27.7 million in the 2019 second quarter. Revenues and gross margin decreased in the third quarter primarily as a result of lower customer activity in U.S. land and shelf rentals.

International Rental Tools

International rental tools segment revenues increased 8.6 percent to $24.1 million in the 2019 third quarter from $22.2 million for the 2019 second quarter. Gross margin increased 30.5 percent to $3.8 million in the third quarter, compared with gross margin of $2.9 million in the 2019 second quarter. Improvement in revenues and gross margin resulted from the recognition of project awards in well intervention and increases in surface and tubular activity.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See the reconciliation and table of net income/(loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA later in this release for more information on non-GAAP financial measures.

Drilling Services

For the Company's drilling services business, which is comprised of the U.S. (lower 48) drilling and International & Alaska drilling segments, third quarter revenues increased 7.2 percent to $86.8 million from $80.9 million for the second quarter. Gross margin increased 17.6 percent to $15.0 million from $12.8 million, and gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 17.3 percent compared with 15.8 percent for the prior period.

U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling

U.S. (lower 48) drilling segment revenues increased 16.1 percent to $14.5 million in the 2019 third quarter from $12.5 million for the 2019 second quarter. Gross margin increased 54.1 percent to $3.9 million in the third quarter, compared with gross margin of $2.6 million in the 2019 second quarter. Third quarter revenues and gross margin were primarily driven by increased utilization of our inland barge rig fleet and favorable O&M activity.

International & Alaska Drilling

International & Alaska drilling segment revenues increased 5.6 percent to $72.3 million in the 2019 third quarter from $68.5 million for the 2019 second quarter. Gross margin increased 8.5 percent to $11.1 million in the third quarter, compared with gross margin of $10.2 million in the 2019 second quarter. Revenues and gross margin were primarily driven by activity increases in Mexico as well as O&M operations in Sakhalin Island, Russia and offset by lower utilization in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

Consolidated

General and administrative expense was $6.0 million for the 2019 third quarter. Total liquidity at the end of the quarter, was $125.8 million, consisting of $101.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and $24.7 million available under the Company's credit facility.

Capital expenditures in the third quarter were $21.7 million, primarily related to the Company's rentals tools services business.

(1)

Pre-petition restructuring charges have been allocated to the respective period in which the expense was incurred. Accordingly adjusted EBITDA will differ from what was reported previously.



(2)

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors, and others to evaluate and compare our core operating results from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure (interest expense from our outstanding debt), asset base (depreciation and amortization), remeasurement of foreign currency transactions, tax consequences, impairment and other special items. Special items include items impacting operating expenses that management believes detract from an understanding of normal operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance and period to period comparisons. Our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure of another company because other entities may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to operating income or loss, net income or loss, cash flows provided by or used in operating, investing, and financing activities, or other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Management views the adjustments to Net income (loss) available to common stockholders and Diluted earnings (loss) per common share to be items outside of the Company's normal operating results. Adjusted net income (loss) available to common stockholders and Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per common share are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to Net income (loss) available to common stockholders or Diluted earnings (loss) per common share.
