Ranger Energy Services, Inc. Announces Q1 2018 Results

HOUSTON--()--Ranger Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: RNGR) (“Ranger” or the “Company”) announced today its results for its fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2018.

The highlights for Q1 2018 were:

  • The Company realized an increase in high-spec rig average hourly rates and saw growing demand for its rigs.
  • The Company’s completion wireline business in the Permian Basin continued to grow substantially, ending the quarter with a total of six trucks.
  • Stronger underlying financial performance was driven by improved operating execution.

Financial highlights for Q1 2018 were:

  • Revenues of $62.6 million, a sequential increase of 25% from $50.1 million in Q4 2017.
  • Net loss of $10.3 million for Q1 2018 increased from a net loss of $5.6 million in Q4 2017 primarily due to a $9.0 million goodwill impairment and the loss on the sale of idle, non-core assets of $0.7 million, partially offset by improved operating performance.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 increased to $5.2 million for Q1 2018, from $3.8 million in Q4 2017, principally due to revenue growth partially offset by higher underlying general and administrative costs.
  • The average hourly rates for high-spec rigs increased by 7% to approximately $487 in Q1 2018 from $454 in Q4 2017.
  • Rig hours increased 5% to approximately 73,600 for Q1 2018 from 69,800 in Q4 2017.
  • Rig utilization as measured by average monthly hours per rig increased to 184 hours in Q1 2018 from 179 hours in Q4 2017 on growing demand.

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.

 

Darron Anderson, Ranger’s CEO, commented:

“The trajectory of our business is definitely headed in the right direction. We believe the results of the quarter reflect the success of our strategy execution. Our high-spec well servicing rigs continue to differentiate themselves on horizontal well applications thus driving increased demand and successful price increases. Our focus on growing our completions-related activity is not only demonstrated through our increased rig hour results, but also through our highly successful Permian wireline completions business. We continue to offer one of the highest quality, purpose-built asset bases in the industry, which is driving efficiency gains for our client base and creating growth opportunities. At current commodity price levels, we anticipate continued demand growth, notably in our higher margin completions-related activities.”

Financial Results

Revenues

During the quarter, revenues increased 25% to $62.6 million from $50.1 million in Q4. The increase was primarily attributable to the increased activity of our wireline completions business and higher hourly rates for our high-spec rigs in the Well Services segment. The results by segment were as follows:

  • Well Services’ segment revenue increased 25% to $59.7 million in Q1 2018 from $47.7 million in Q4 2017, principally due to our wireline activity and hourly rig rates. Revenues in our Permian Basin wireline completions business increased by close to three times quarter over quarter with a full quarter of increased activity and 2 new trucks delivered in the quarter. Average hourly rig rates increased 7% to $487 on improved pricing and stronger revenue mix driven by increased completions work in select basins. Rig utilization, as measured by average monthly hours per rig, increased to 184 from 179. Total rig hours increased 5% to approximately 73,600 hours in Q1 2018 from 69,800 in Q4. For the quarter, the average number of rigs in our fleet increased to 134 rigs from 130 in Q4 2017. During the quarter, two rigs were delivered and six new rigs entered service of which five were delivered in Q4 2017 and one in the current quarter.
  • Processing Solutions revenue increased to $2.9 million in Q1 2018 from $2.4 million in Q4 2017 mainly due to increased mobilization revenue.

Operating Loss and Net Loss

During the quarter, operating loss increased to $10.8 million from $5.2 million in Q4 2017. The Company wrote off all of its $9.0 million of goodwill. Excluding the $9.0 million goodwill impairment, the operating loss improved by $3.4 million as compared to Q4 2017, mainly due to improved gross margin offset by a loss on sale of idle, non-core equipment of $0.7 million in the quarter.

During the quarter, net loss increased by $4.7 million to $10.3 million from $5.6 million in Q4 2017. The increase was due to the higher operating loss in Q1 2018 discussed above.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $5.2 million in Q1 2018 from $3.8 million in Q4 2017. The increase was mainly due to increased revenues from our wireline activity and higher average hourly rates for high spec rigs partially offset by higher underlying general and administrative costs.

Investing Activities: Net cash used in investing activities was $11.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 which includes offsetting asset sale proceeds of $1.2 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 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 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 (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, in millions:
