FTS International Announces Second Quarter 2019 Financial and Operational Results

FORT WORTH, Texas--()--FTS International, Inc. (NYSE: FTSI) (the “Company” or “FTSI”) today reported its financial and operational results for the second quarter of 2019.

Michael Doss, FTSI’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We're pleased to report another quarter of outstanding operational performance and achieved near record efficiency. Our adjusted EBITDA was in-line with our expectations and we continue to deliver above average returns as reflected by our adjusted EBITDA less capex performance. While we are seeing softer demand in second half of the year, we still expect to generate cash flow of approximately $100 million in 2019.”

Second Quarter 2019 Compared to First Quarter 2019

  • Revenue was $225.8 million, up from $222.5 million
  • Net income was $5.9 million, up from a net loss of $(55.0) million, which included a $56.6 million supply commitment charge and $4.2 million of wireline asset impairment and inventory write-down
    • Earnings per share was $0.05, up from $(0.50)
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $41.9 million, up from $39.4 million
    • Adjusted EBITDA per average active fleet was $8.0 million on an annualized basis, up slightly from $7.9 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures was $27.1 million, down slightly from $27.7 million
    • Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures per average active fleet was $5.2 million on an annualized basis, down slightly from $5.5 million

Operational Update

Average active fleets during the second quarter was 21 and subsequent to June 30 the Company stacked one fleet leaving 20 fleets active today. However, with softening demand in the second half of 2019, the Company currently expects to stack two to three additional fleets in the third quarter.

FTSI completed 7,230 stages during the second quarter, or 344 stages per active fleet. This compares to 6,740 stages in the first quarter, or 337 stages per active fleet, and 9,356 stages in the second quarter of last year, or 334 stages per active fleet. Second quarter efficiencies represent the second highest stages per active fleet ever recorded by the Company while pumping 16% longer stages and 12% more hours per day than when the record was achieved in second quarter 2017.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Capital expenditures were $14.8 million in the second quarter compared to $11.7 million in the first quarter. The Company has also tightened the range of its full-year 2019 capital expenditure expectation to $55 million – $60 million.

During the second quarter, the Company repaid $5.0 million of debt to bring the total principal amount of debt outstanding to $475.9 million at June 30, 2019. At June 30, 2019, FTSI had $162.1 million of cash, resulting in net debt of $313.8 million, and availability under the Company’s revolving credit facility was $112.4 million. During the second quarter, the Company had no borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit facility.

During the second quarter, the Company repurchased 761,014 shares under its stock repurchase program for $4.6 million. At June 30, 2019, the Company had $95.4 million remaining under its share repurchase program. The program does not obligate the Company to purchase shares and it may be modified or suspended at any time.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that FTSI defines as earnings before interest; income taxes; and depreciation and amortization, as well as, the following items, if applicable: gain or loss on disposal of assets; debt extinguishment gains or losses; inventory write-downs, asset and goodwill impairments; gain on insurance recoveries; acquisition earn-out adjustments; stock-based compensation; acquisition or disposition transaction costs; and supply commitment charges. The most comparable financial measure to Adjusted EBITDA under GAAP is net income or loss. Adjusted EBITDA per average active fleet on an annualized basis is also a non-GAAP measure and is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by the average active fleets per quarter then multiplying the result by four. The Company also uses Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures, and Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures per average active fleet on an annualized basis. Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures further adjusts Adjusted EBITDA to exclude capital expenditures. Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures per average active fleet on an annualized basis is calculated in the same manner as Adjusted EBITDA per average active fleet on an annualized basis. These non-GAAP measures are used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the business for comparable periods and Adjusted EBITDA is a metric used for management incentive compensation. Our non-GAAP measures should not be used by investors or others as the sole basis for formulating investment decisions, as they exclude a number of important items. The Company believes the non-GAAP measures it uses are important indicators of operating performance because they exclude the effects of the Company’s capital structure and certain non-cash items from the Company’s operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is also commonly used by investors in the oilfield services industry to measure a company's operating performance, although FTSI’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from other industry peer companies.

Net debt is a non-GAAP financial measure that FTSI defines as total long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents. The most comparable financial measure to net debt under GAAP is long-term debt. Net debt is used by management as a measure of our financial leverage. Net debt should not be used by investors or others as the sole basis in formulating investment decisions as it does not represent the Company’s actual indebtedness.
