VERNAL, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Superior Drilling Products, Inc. (NYSE MKT: SDPI) (“SDP” or the “Company”), a designer and manufacturer of drilling tool technologies, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.
Troy Meier, Chairman and CEO, noted, "We demonstrated the strength of our operations and ability to efficiently meet measurably increased orders in the quarter. Our largest customer has been building their Drill-N-Ream® well bore conditioning tool inventory to address growing demand and to achieve their market share goals. Important highlights included:
- We addressed the measurable increase in demand and demonstrated the significant leverage gained on that volume. Our DPM Optimization (Design, Programming, and Machining) contributed to this ability to ramp up as rapidly as we did.
- The value of our Drill-N-Ream is being realized by a continually growing number of operators, with more beginning to use multiple tools of various sizes on a single well in their drilling processes. The tool improves penetration rates, helps rotary steerable systems around the curve and off bottom, reduces shock and vibrations thereby improving MWD (measurement-while-drilling) tool life.
- We commercialized the Coiled Tubing Strider (CTS) that incorporates our patented StriderTM oscillation system technology. While revenue was modest and costs are still high, market reception has been very positive.
- Our review of market channel opportunities for the CTS is advancing as we also consider interim approaches to getting the tool to market.
- We continue to advance the Open Hole Strider with innovative materials that can withstand abrasive drilling fluids. We expect to commercialize this tool later in 2017.
We are very encouraged with the reception of the technologies we have brought to market and believe, in time, there will be additional solutions we can develop to advance drilling efficiencies.”
First Quarter 2017 Financial Summary
|($ in thousands,except per share amounts)|
|Q1 2017||Q1 2016||
|Other related tool revenue||635||52||583||1121.2||%||342||293||85.4||%|
|Diluted loss per share||$||(0.02||)||$||(0.13||)||$||0.11||84.6||%||$||(0.11||)||$||0.09||81.8||%|
Compared with the prior-year period, revenue grew 133% to $3.4 million driven by the Company’s unique technologies and capabilities, as well as the Company being well positioned to take advantage of improving conditions in the oil & gas industry. Sequentially, revenue was up 44% over the trailing fourth quarter of 2016 as a result of continued increases in drilling activity and market share gains in the first quarter.
Tool revenue improved to $2.3 million, an increase of 138% over the prior-year period and 27% higher than the trailing fourth quarter. Tool sales/rental revenue was comprised primarily of tool sales, whereas in the first quarter of 2016 this revenue was from tool rentals. The Company changed its go-to-market and business strategy in May 2016. Higher tool revenue was the result of increased rig activity and growing market share. Combined, this drove tool sales, tool usage and repair activity.
Contract services were $1.1 million, up 125% over the prior-year period, outpacing a 34% increase in rig counts over the same period. When compared with the trailing fourth quarter, contract services revenue doubled while rig counts increased just 26%.
Net loss of $386 thousand improved 83% over the prior-year period. Higher revenue combined with the significant changes in the Company’s business model and the inherent operating leverage on higher volume led to stronger revenue conversion.
First Quarter 2017 Operational Review
($ in thousands)
|Q1 2017||Q1 2016||
|Q4 2016||Seq. Change||Seq. % Change|
|Cost of revenue||$||1,180||$||1,021||$||159||15.6||%||$||1,148||32||2.8||%|
|As a percent of sales||35.0||%||70.7||%||49.2||%|
|Selling, general & administrative||$||1,498||$||1,291||$||207||16.0||%||$||1,627||(129||)||(7.9||)%|
|As a percent of sales||44.5||%||89.4||%||69.7||%|
|Depreciation & amortization||$||938||$||1,234||$||(296||)||(24.0||)%||$||912||26||2.9||%|
Lower cost of revenue as a percentage of sales, with higher volume when compared with the prior-year period reflects several cost reduction efforts, the elimination of inventory stocking points and field representatives required for a rental tool business and improved productivity.
Higher selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) was due to higher volume, stock compensation, and professional fees.
Adjusted EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense and unusual items, was substantially improved to $0.9 million, or 27% of revenue. For the quarter, Adjusted EBITDA improved $1.5 million over prior-year period and $0.8 million over the trailing fourth quarter due primarily to the Company’s innovative technology coupled with the improving oil & gas industry. The Company believes that when used in conjunction with measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure, helps in the understanding of its operating performance.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity
Cash and equivalents was $1.0 million at March 31, 2017, down from $2.2 million at the end of 2016. Cash used in operations was $0.8 million, more than the $0.3 million in the prior-year period. The higher requirement for cash was mostly related to an increase in accounts receivable. Accounts receivable were up $1.6 million due to the increase in sales and timing of receipts.
Total debt at the end of the quarter was $14.0 million, down $2.7 million, or 16%, compared with $16.7 million at December 31, 2016.
Proceeds of $2.5 million from the sale of non-core real estate property on February 9, 2017, were used for the repayment of related borrowings. The property was purchased in a related-party transaction by Superior Auto Body and Paint, LLC (“SABP”), an entity in which the Meiers have a direct ownership interest.
During the quarter, the Company had capital expenditures of $133 thousand, primarily related to the conversion from lease to own for machining centers.
Financial estimates for 2017:
|Revenue:||Approximately $12.0 to $13.0 million|
|Operating margin, excluding amortization:||9% to 11%|
|Depreciation:||$1.3 to $1.4 million|
|Amortization:||Approximately $2.4 million|
|Interest Expense:||Approximately $950 thousand|
|Capital Expenditures:||Approximately $350 thousand|

(1) Adjusted EBITDA represents net income adjusted for income taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization and other items as noted in the reconciliation table. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important supplemental measure of operating performance and uses it to assess performance and inform operating decisions. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not a GAAP financial measure. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be used as a substitute for GAAP measures of performance, including net cash provided by operations, operating income and net income. The Company’s method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA may vary substantially from the methods used by other companies and investors are cautioned not to rely unduly on it.
