    Natural Gas Services Group, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial and Operating Results

    Midland, TX, Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Natural Gas Services Group, Inc. (“NGS” or the “Company”) (NYSE:NGS), a leading provider of natural gas compression equipment and services to the energy industry, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.Third Quarter 2020 Highlights * Company generated exceptional cash flow and steady utilization despite market turmoil     * Cash balance increased 78% to $27.6 million in Q3 from $15.5 million in Q2 due to strong operating cash flow, reduced CAPEX, and a federal income tax refund of $3.9 million. * Cash flows from operating activities increased 31% to $27.9 million during the first nine months of 2020 compared to $21.3 million during the same period in 2019.    * Utilization remained steady on both a horsepower (63.8% in Q3 vs. 63.6% in Q2) and a unit (54.6% in Q3 vs. 54.5% in Q2) basis. * Rental revenue of  $14.9 million, an increase of 3.0% when compared to the third quarter of 2019. * Net loss of $562,000 ($0.04 loss per diluted share). * Adjusted EBITDA of $5.6 million.  Please see Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted EBITDA, below.  * Planned capital expenditures of $7-$9 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 backed by attractive contracts.  Additional Discussion of the QuarterRevenue: Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2020 decreased to $15.8 million from $20.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. This decrease was primarily due to a drop in sales revenue resulting from a lack of compressor sales offset by an increase in rental revenue. Rental revenue increased 3.0% to $14.9 million in the third quarter of 2020 from $14.4 million in the third quarter of 2019 due to a greater number of large horsepower units being rented.  Total revenue decreased 9.4% to $15.8 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $17.4 million in the second quarter of 2020 resulting from a lack of compressor sales along with a 1.8% decrease in rental revenue during the third quarter of 2020.  This sequential decrease in rental revenue was due to some continuing equipment shut-ins, rate reductions and unit returns in the third quarter.Gross Margins:  Total gross margins decreased to $1.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $3.8 million for the same period in 2019.  Total adjusted gross margin, exclusive of depreciation, for the three months ended September 30, 2020, decreased $1.7 million to $7.9 million from $9.6 million for the same period ended September 30, 2019. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in sales revenue and higher unabsorbed fabrication costs partially offset by higher rental revenue and slightly higher rental margins.  Sequentially, total gross margin decreased to $1.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020. Excluding depreciation, total adjusted gross margin decreased 10.7% to $7.9 million during the third quarter of 2020 compared to $8.8 million during the second quarter of 2020. This sequential decrease was primarily due to a reduction in sales revenue as well as slightly lower rental revenue and rental margins. The small decrease in rental margin was impacted by an increase in our bad debt allowance and higher payroll costs mostly offset by lower maintenance and repair costs during the third quarter.  Please see discussions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted Gross Margin, below.Operating (Loss) Income: Operating loss for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $941,000 compared to an operating loss of $14.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Operating loss during the third quarter of 2019 included a full impairment of goodwill, an increase to inventory allowance, and retirement of rental equipment that totaled $14.9 million (“Impairment and Other Non-Cash Charges”). Excluding Impairment and Other Non-Cash Charges, adjusted operating income was $880,000 in the third quarter of 2019. The larger adjusted operating loss in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019 was mainly due to lower sales revenue, higher unabsorbed fabrication costs, and higher depreciation expense partially offset by higher rental revenues, slightly higher rental margins, and lower selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses. Operating loss in the third quarter of 2020 was $941,000 compared to an operating loss of $148,000 during the second quarter of 2020. This sequential decrease was primarily due to lower compressor and other sales as well as slight decreases in both rental revenue and rental margins that were partially offset by lower SG&A expenses during the third quarter. SG&A decreased by $169,000 sequentially primarily due to a decrease in unrealized loss on deferred compensation between quarters. Please see Non-GAAP Financial Measures – Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Net Income (Loss), below.Net (Loss) Income: Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $562,000 compared to a net loss of $12.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Excluding Impairment and Other Non-Cash Charges, adjusted net income was $967,000 in the third quarter of 2019. The decrease in adjusted net income during the third quarter of 2020 was mainly due to lower sales revenue, higher unabsorbed fabrication costs, and higher depreciation expense partially offset by higher rental revenues, slightly higher rental margins, lower selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses, and higher other income.  Sequentially, net loss during the third quarter of 2020 of $562,000 compares to net income of $165,000 during the second quarter of 2020.  This sequential decrease was primarily due to lower compressor and other sales, slight decreases in both rental revenue and rental margins, and lower other income that were partially offset by lower SG&A expenses during the third quarter.  The sequential decrease in other income was primarily due to lower unrealized gains on company-owned life insurance (related to deferred compensation) during the third quarter and a gain on disposal of assets during the second quarter.  These factors were partially offset by interest income related to income tax refunds received during the third quarter.  Please see discussions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Net Income (Loss), below.(Loss) Earnings per share: For the third quarter of 2020, the Company reported a loss per diluted share of $0.04 compared to loss per diluted share of $0.96 in the third quarter of 2019. Excluding Impairment and Other Non-Cash Charges, the company’s adjusted earnings per diluted share was $0.07 in the third quarter of 2019. Sequentially, the Company reported a loss per diluted share of $0.04 compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.01 in the second quarter of 2020. Please see discussions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Net Income (Loss), below.Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $5.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $6.9 million for the same period in 2019. This decrease was attributable to lower sales revenue and higher unabsorbed fabrication costs partially offset by higher rental revenue, slightly higher rental margins, lower G&A expenses and higher other income during the third quarter of 2020. Sequentially, adjusted EBITDA decreased to $5.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $6.5 million in the previous quarter.  This decrease was attributable to lower sales revenue, slightly lower rental revenue, slightly lower rental margins, and lower other income partially offset by lower SG&A expenses during the third quarter.  Please see discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted EBITDA, below.Cash flow: At September 30, 2020, cash and cash equivalents were approximately $27.6 million, while working capital was $59.2 million and total debt was $417,000. For the nine months of 2020, cash flow from operating activities was $27.9 million, while cash flow used in investing activities was $11.8 million. Cash flow used in investing activities included $12.0 million in capital expenditures, of which $10.3 million was dedicated to rental capital expenditures. Commenting on Third Quarter 2020 results, Stephen C. Taylor, President and CEO, said: "NGS posted solid operating results during this third quarter of 2020. Although our total revenue in both comparative quarters was down, which was driven primarily by our compressor sales business, our rental revenues continue to be solid. We continue to focus on our costs and to pursue work that prompts good returns. Accordingly, total gross margins came in at 50% of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA was 35% of revenue."Importantly, we continued to strengthen our balance sheet and liquidity position, even in this very challenging market environment. During the third quarter, NGS delivered positive net cash flow from operating activities of $13.1 million and reduced capital expenditures to $1.0 million, which resulted in our cash balance increasing to $27.6 million. This is up significantly from $15.5 million at the end of the second quarter. NGS continues to maintain one of the best balance sheets in the industry. "NGS is fortunate to have been well positioned entering this period of extraordinary pain for the energy industry. Our ability to react rapidly in this environment and respond to our customers’ needs have resulted in less impact on our financial condition compared to many of our peers."Selected data: The tables below show, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, revenues and percentage of total revenues, along with our gross margin and adjusted gross margin (exclusive of depreciation and amortization), as well as, related percentages of revenue for each of our product lines. Adjusted gross margin is the difference between revenue and cost of sales, exclusive of depreciation. Revenue  Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30,  2020 2019 2020 2019  (in thousands) Rental$14,861   94 % $14,434   69 % $46,092   90 % $41,393   70 % Sales536   4 % 5,877   28 % 3,994   8 % 15,816   27 % Service & Maintenance368   2 % 541   3 % 974   2 % 1,529   3 % Total$15,765     $20,852     $51,060     $58,738      Gross Margin  Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30,  2020 2019  2020 2019   (in thousands) Rental$2,019    14  % 1,987   14% $6,648    14  % $5,076   12% Sales$(530)  (99)% 1,415   24% $(813)  (20)% $3,104   20% Service & Maintenance$219    60  % 367   68% $585    60  % $1,031   67% Total$1,708    11  % 3,769   18% $6,420    13  % $9,211   16%  Adjusted Gross Margin (1)  Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30,  2020 2019 2020 2019  (in thousands) Rental$8,101    55  % $7,727   54 % 24,806    54  % $21,853   53 % Sales(461)  (86)% 1,487   25 % (602)  (15)% 3,308   21 % Service & Maintenance230    63  % 377   70 % 611    63  % 1,059   69 % Total$7,870    50  % $9,591   46 % $24,815    49  % $26,220   45 % (1) For a reconciliation of adjusted gross margin to its most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, please read “Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted Gross Margin” below.Non-GAAP Financial Measure - Adjusted Gross Margin: “Adjusted Gross Margin” is defined as total revenue less cost of sales (excluding depreciation expense). Adjusted gross margin is included as a supplemental disclosure because it is a primary measure used by management as it represents the results of revenue and cost of sales (excluding depreciation expense), which are key operating components. Adjusted gross margin differs from gross margin in that gross margin includes depreciation expense.  We believe adjusted gross margin is important because it focuses on the current operating performance of our operations and excludes the impact of the prior historical costs of the assets acquired or constructed that are utilized in those operations. Depreciation expense reflects the systematic allocation of historical property and equipment values over the estimated useful lives.Adjusted gross margin has certain material limitations associated with its use as compared to gross margin.  Depreciation expense is a necessary element of our costs and our ability to generate revenue.  Management uses this non-GAAP measure as a supplemental measure to other GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the company's performance. As an indicator of operating performance, adjusted gross margin should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, gross margin as determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Gross margin may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure of another company because other entities may not calculate adjusted gross margin in the same manner.The following table calculates gross margin, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, and reconciles it to adjusted gross margin: Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30,  (in thousands) (in thousands) 2020 2019 2020 2019 Total revenue$15,765    $20,852    $51,060    58,738    Costs of revenue, exclusive of depreciation(7,895)  (11,261)  (26,245)  (32,518)  Depreciation allocable to costs of revenue(6,162)  (5,822)  (18,395)  (17,009)  Gross margin1,708    3,769    6,420    9,211    Depreciation allocable to costs of revenue6,162    5,822    18,395    17,009    Adjusted Gross Margin$7,870    $9,591    $24,815    $26,220    Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted EBITDA: “Adjusted EBITDA” reflects net income or loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment of goodwill, increases in inventory allowance and retirement of rental equipment. Adjusted EBITDA is a measure used by management, analysts and investors as an indicator of operating cash flow since it excludes the impact of movements in working capital items, non-cash charges and financing costs. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA gives the investor information as to the cash generated from the operations of a business. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles GAAP, and should not be considered a substitute for other financial measures of performance. Adjusted EBITDA as calculated by NGS may not be comparable to Adjusted EBITDA as calculated and reported by other companies. The most comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA is net income (loss).The following table reconciles our net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to Adjusted EBITDA: Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30,  (in thousands) (in thousands)  2020 2019 2020 2019 Net (loss) income$(562)  $(12,579)  $3,685    $(12,154)  Interest expense2    4    13    12    Income tax benefit(167)  (1,353)  (4,653)  (1,143)  Depreciation and amortization6,318    5,920    18,859    17,217    Inventory allowance—    3,350    —    3,350    Impairment of goodwill—    10,039    —    10,039    Retirement of rental equipment—    1,512    —    1,512    Adjusted EBITDA$5,591    $6,893    $17,904    $18,833    Non GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Net Income (Loss): From time to time, management may publicly disclose certain “non-GAAP financial measures”, such as adjusted operating income and adjusted net income (loss), below, in our earnings releases, financial presentations or earnings conference calls. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations that would be reflected in measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted operating income and adjusted net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 exclude goodwill impairment, an increase in inventory allowance, and retirement of rental equipment taken in the third quarter of 2019.  Adjusted net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 excludes an income tax benefit related to a recent tax law change.The reconciliation of operating loss to adjusted operating income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 is as follows: (in thousands)  Three months ended Nine months ended  September 30, 2019 Operating loss$(14,021)  $(13,864)  Impairment of goodwill10,039    10,039    Inventory allowance3,350    3,350    Retirement of rental equipment1,512    1,512    Adjusted operating income$880    $1,037    The reconciliation of net loss to adjusted net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 is as follows: Three months ended September 30, 2019 Nine months ended September 30, 2019  (in thousands) per diluted share(1) (in thousands) per diluted share(1) Reported net loss$(12,579)  $(0.96)  $(12,154)  $(0.93)  Impairment of goodwill10,039    0.76    10,039    0.77    Inventory allowance3,350    0.26    3,350    0.26    Retirement of rental equipment1,512    0.12    1,512    0.12    Income tax adjustment related to the exclusion of these non-cash charges(1,355)  (0.10)  (1,355)  (0.10)  Change in diluted shares  (0.01)    (0.02)  Adjusted net income$967    $0.07    $1,392    $0.10    Note: (1) For the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2019, restricted stock and options were not included in the computation of reported loss per diluted share due to their antidilutive effect.  A weighted average of approximately 322,900 and 286,400 shares of restricted stock and options were included in the computation of adjusted earnings per diluted share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.The reconciliation of net income to adjusted net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 is as follows: Nine months ended September 30, 2020  (in thousands) per diluted share(1) Reported net income$3,685    $0.27    Income tax benefit related to recent tax law change(4,890)  (0.36)  Adjusted net loss$(1,205)  $(0.09)  Note: (1) For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, options to purchase 171,900 weighted average shares of common stock with exercise prices ranging from $14.89 to $33.36 were not included in the computation of reported earnings per diluted share due to their antidilutive effect.  Restricted stock and stock options were not included in the computation of adjusted loss per diluted share due to their antidilutive effect.Conference Call Details:Teleconference: Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Central (11:00 a.m. Eastern).  Live via phone by dialing 877-358-7306, pass code “Natural Gas Services”.  All attendees and participants to the conference call should arrange to call in at least 5 minutes prior to the start time.Live Webcast: The webcast will be available in listen only mode via our website www.ngsgi.com, investor relations section.Webcast Reply: For those unable to attend or participate, a replay of the conference call will be available within 24 hours on the NGS website at www.ngsgi.com.Stephen C.

In its Form 12b-25 filing the company explained that the Quarterly Report could not be filed within the prescribed time period due to the fact that the Company was unable to finalize its financial results without unreasonable expense or effort, which resulted primarily from circumstances related to the coronavirus disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) pandemic outbreak. Due to continued and resurgent positive COVID-19 cases in the Midland, Texas area, including exposure and positive tests among the Company’s professional staff and immediate families, the Company’s corporate headquarters has remained closed and staffed at minimum levels throughout the past and present quarter and is closed currently. The office closure and staffing challenges resulted in delays in our collection and assimilation of financial data related to the completion of our interim financial statements required for our Quarterly Report.About Natural Gas Services Group, Inc. (NGS)NGS is a leading provider of gas compression services and equipment to the energy industry.
