Ranger Energy Services, Inc. Announces Q4 2019 Results

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

– Cash flows from operations of $16 million generated during Q4 and $52 million for full year 2019

– Net debt reduced $11 million in Q4 and $27 million for full year 2019

– High Specification Rigs posted highest rig hours of the year

– Wireline bettered previous peak stage count

Consolidated Financial Highlights

Revenues decreased 4.6% to $80.2 million in Q4, from $84.1 million in Q3. Our Completion and Other Services segment saw declines, as well as Processing Solutions, however this was partially offset by increased revenues attributable to our High Specification Rigs segment.

Net loss decreased $0.8 million, from a loss of $0.9 million in Q3, to a loss of $0.1 million in Q4. The decrease in net loss was impacted by the combination of lower cost of services and depreciation expense, a non-cash income tax provision and lower interest expense.

Adjusted EBITDA1 decreased 7% to $11.4 million, from $12.2 million in Q3.

CEO Comments

As we close out 2019, I would like to reflect on the strategic focus Ranger laid out early last year. Our primary focus entering 2019 was cash flow generation and using that cash to further pay down the modest level of debt carried on our balance sheet. Operationally, we were seeking to drive efficiencies from the wellhead to our back-office systems and process. At the same time, driving to broaden our customer base by increasing our exposure to existing and new top-tier customers. I'm very proud of our team as they delivered on each of these initiatives throughout the year, which resulted in strong, stable performance in spite of market conditions.

Fourth quarter results continued to reflect 2019’s successes. We saw another quarter of solid cash flow, debt pay down and operational performance.

For the quarter, we produced $16 million of cash flow from operations and reduced net debt by nearly $11 million.

High-grading our High Spec Rig customer base continued. During the quarter, we deployed six additional rigs to satisfy contract wins and other new rig demand opportunities. These rig additions and associated rig hours more than offset the normal seasonal rig hour declines, resulting in our highest quarterly rig hours of the year.

Our Wireline business continues to gain market share. Stage count saw a slight increase against an industry-wide completions activity drop of more than 20%. However, continued pricing pressure more than offset the stage count increase netting to an 8% drop in revenue. The impact to margins was offset, again this quarter, by continued vigilance on labor and input costs and our ongoing highly efficient operations.

Last quarter, our Completion and Other Services segment saw some under-performance in a specific line of business. We noted last call that, during Q3, we completed a full restructuring of this service offering to better align our cost structure with the near-term expected revenue stream. This effort had a positive impact to the segment's results.

While our Processing Solutions segment has historically seen limited performance volatility, this quarter was an exception. MRU’s coming off contract during the quarter were not quickly rolled-over or redeployed. For Q4, revenue was down 32% sequentially. While this under-performance is likely to impact Q1 as well, we are expecting this trend to reverse itself and look forward to a return to historic performance levels later in the first half of 2020.

We expect to continue to generate significant cash flow throughout the year, likely necessitating some capital allocation decisions. Given limited growth capex and a modest current debt level, there is likely to be material excess cash to deploy. We’re planning a balanced capital allocation program but have yet to finalize the specifics with our Board.”

Business Segment Financial Results

High Specification Rigs

High Specification Rigs segment revenue increased 7%, or $2.3 million, to $34.8 million in Q4 from $32.5 million in Q3. The increase was driven by an increase in hourly rig rates, which increased by 3%, or $15, to $534 from $519 in Q3. Additionally, total rig hours increased 3% to approximately 64,400 hours in Q4 from 62,400 in Q3.

Operating loss decreased by $2.3 million to income of $0.2 million in Q4 from a loss of $2.1 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA increased 64%, or $2.1 million, to $5.4 million in Q4 from $3.3 million in Q3. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was attributable to the increase in revenue partially offset by an increase in cost of services, while the operating loss decline was further enhanced by a decrease in depreciation expense.

Completion and Other Services

Completion and Other Services segment revenue decreased 9%, or $4.2 million, to $41.1 million in Q4 from $45.3 million in Q3 2019. The reduction in revenue for the quarter reflected seasonally lower activity in our non-wireline business lines and ongoing pricing pressure in the Wireline business.

Operating income decreased $1.0 million to $6.8 million in Q4 from $7.8 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 10%, or $1.1 million, to $9.6 million in Q4 from $10.7 million in Q3. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was driven by the segment's overall revenue decline, partially offset by reductions in cost of sales.

Processing Solutions

Processing Solutions revenue decreased 32% or $2.0 million, to $4.3 million in Q4 from $6.3 million in Q3 2019.

Operating income decreased $1.5 million to $1.4 million in Q4 from $2.9 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 43%, or $1.5 million, to $2.0 million in Q4 from $3.5 million in Q3. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA is attributable to a decrease in MRU revenue, partially offset by a decrease in cost of services.

Liquidity

We ended the quarter with $27.4 million of liquidity, consisting of $20.5 million of capacity available on our revolving credit facility and $6.9 million of cash. The Q4 cash ending balance of $6.9 million compares to $8.0 million at the end of Q3 2019.

Debt

We ended Q4 with aggregate debt of $43.5 million, compared to $54.0 million at the end of Q3.

We had an outstanding draw on our revolving credit facility of $10.0 million at the end of Q4, compared to $18.0 million at the end of Q3. During the quarter, we made payments of $11.7 million on the principal credit facility balance, partially offset by $1.2 million of borrowings.

We had an outstanding balance on our Encina Financing Agreement of $30.2 million at the end of Q3 and we made aggregate payments of $2.5 million during Q4, leaving a principal balance of $27.7 million at the end of Q4.

Working Capital

Our Q4 2019 working capital decreased $6 million to $3.6 million from $9.6 million at the end of Q3 2019.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures recorded during the quarter were $3.6 million. High Specification Rigs segment incurred $1.9 million of capital expenditures on ancillary equipment related to our new and existing integrated customer contracts. Maintenance capital expense for the quarter was $1.6 million.

Also, across all segments, $0.4 million of leased vehicles were added during the quarter.

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 net interest expense, 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 December 31, 2019 and September 30, 2019, in millions:
