Ranger Energy Services, Inc. Announces Q1 2019 Results

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Ranger Energy Services, Inc. (RNGR) (“Ranger” or the “Company”) announced today its results for its fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2019.

  • Sixth consecutive quarter of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth in spite of both seasonal headwinds and a challenging commodity tape
  • Sequential net income more than doubled with revenue and Adjusted EBITDA each showing a 4% gain
  • 2019 capex spend largely complete in Q1, free cash flow generation balance of 2019 primary focus

Consolidated Q1 2019 Financial Highlights

Revenues saw a sequential increase of 4% to $88.3 million, from $85.3 million in Q4.

Net income increased $1.9 million to $3.6 million from $1.7 million in Q4. The increase in net income was driven by increased revenue and a reduction in depreciation and amortization expenses. This was partially offset by an increase in cost of sales.

Adjusted EBITDA1 increased 4% to $14.2 million, from $13.7 million in Q4. The Adjusted EBITDA increase was driven by a revenue increase partially offset by an increase in cost of services.

Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)” at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
 

CEO Comments

“Ranger posted another quarter of improving performance in the face of both ongoing seasonal headwinds and a challenging commodity tape. We are proud of the fact that we have grown both revenue and Adjusted EBITDA every quarter since our Q3 2017 IPO. Financial performance again reached a high water mark in Q1 with a 4% sequential increase in both revenue and Adjusted EBITDA. While we did see the 4th quarter crude price downturn and inclement northern weather impact the start of 2019, these declines were more than offset by our Permian wireline business which saw its first full quarter of operations with the entire complement of assets from our 2018 growth capital program.

Our High Specification Rigs business experienced a modest decrease in pricing and a drop in utilization primarily driven by the impact of lower oil prices and severe weather on our Permian and Bakken 24-hour completion rig activity. Our Permian wireline completions business continued operations on a 100% dedicated basis with an average unit count of 13 during the quarter, up from 11 in Q4. Market share gains and solid pricing also contributed to the success of this business. Our Processing Solutions business results saw a pull-back vs Q4 on the expected return of installation revenue back down to historic run rates.

As we move beyond the first quarter of 2019, we continue to sharpen our focus on near-term cash flow generation and driving efficiencies across our operations while increasing our exposure to existing and new top-tier customers.

On the new customer front, we are pleased to announce a new, multi-year Permian Basin contract with a global, integrated customer. Moving forward, we expect to ramp our High Specification rigs' activity along with select Completion and Other Services offerings as we mobilize assets to service this contract. This relationship marks a milestone for Ranger as we reap the benefits of our significant work in putting systems and processes in place that allow us to service an increasingly high-graded customer base.

On the cash-flow front, Q1 saw us take delivery of the majority of our expected 2019 growth capital items. For the balance of the year, we continue to plan for minimal capital spend, significant cash flow generation and targeted debt reductions.”

Business Segment Financial Results

High Specification Rigs

High Specification Rigs segment revenue decreased 10%, or $3.6 million, to $31.7 million in Q1 from $35.3 million in Q4 2018. The decrease was driven by reduced rig utilization, as measured by average monthly hours per rig, to 142 from 154. Total rig hours decreased 7% to approximately 60,100 hours in Q1 from 64,900 in Q4. Average hourly rig rates decreased 3%, or $16, to $522 from $538 in Q4.

Operating loss was reduced by $0.5 million to a loss of $0.5 million in Q1 from a loss of $1.0 million in Q4. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 16%, or $0.8 million, to $4.3 million in Q1 from $5.1 million in Q4. The reduction in operating loss was attributable to a decrease in depreciation and amortization expense. The Adjusted EBITDA decline was primarily due to the decrease in revenues, as described above.

Completion and Other Services

Completion and Other Services segment revenue increased 18%, or $7.9 million, to $51.6 million in Q1 from $43.7 million in Q4 2018. The increase is primarily related to wireline activity, with an additional wireline truck deployed in Q1, increasing the total wireline truck count to 13.

Operating income increased $1.8 million to $10.9 million in Q1 from $9.1 million in Q4. Adjusted EBITDA increased 18%, or $2.1 million, to $13.7 million in Q1 from $11.6 million in Q4. The increase in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was driven by increased revenue, which was partially offset by a sequential increase in cost of services.

Processing Solutions

Processing Solutions revenue decreased 21%, or $1.3 million, to $5.0 million in Q1 from $6.3 million in Q4 2018. This reduction in revenue is attributable to lower installation and operating and maintenance revenues. Equipment rental revenue remained relatively flat to Q4 2018.

Operating income decreased $0.7 million to $2.3 million in Q1 from $3.0 million in Q4. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 18%, or $0.6 million, to $2.8 million in Q1 from $3.4 million in Q4. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA is attributable to decreased revenues, as described above.

Liquidity

We ended the quarter with $23.4 million of liquidity, consisting of $17.7 million of capacity available on our revolving credit facility and $5.7 million of cash.

The Q1 cash ending balance of $5.7 million compares to $2.6 million at the end of Q4 2018. We had an outstanding draw on our revolving credit facility of $25.6 million, leaving $17.7 million of capacity on a quarter end borrowing base of $43.3 million.

Capital Expenditures

Total capital expenditures recorded during the quarter were $9.2 million. Of that amount, $1.8 million was related to our Completion and Other Services business including four sets of pressure control equipment and associated ancillary equipment. The total amount included $2.8 million related to High Specification Rigs ancillary equipment. Also included was $4.1 million associated with the addition of two processing units and six gas coolers in our Processing Solutions segment. Maintenance capital expense for the quarter was $0.7 million.

Additions of new leased vehicles to support current growth and replacement of vehicles amount to $0.5 million.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(UNAUDITED)

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, net, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, acquisition-related and severance costs, impairment of goodwill, gain or loss on sale of assets and certain other items that we do not view as indicative of our ongoing performance.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure because it allows for an effective evaluation of our operating performance when compared to our peers, without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. We exclude the items listed above from net income or loss in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss determined in accordance with GAAP. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are reflected in Adjusted EBITDA. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that our results will be unaffected by the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be identical to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table presents reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA, our most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The following table is a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, in millions:
