Superior Energy Services Announces First Quarter 2019 Results


Source: Superior Energy Services, Inc.

HOUSTON, April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Superior Energy Services, Inc. (the “Company”) today announced a net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2019 of $47.7 million, or $0.31 per share, on revenue of $467.2 million.  This compares to a net loss from continuing operations of $750.2 million, or $4.85 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2018, on revenue of $539.3 million and a net loss from continuing operations of $59.9 million, or $0.39 per share for the first quarter of 2018, on revenue of $482.3 million.

David Dunlap, President and CEO, commented, “First quarter results were in line with our expectations.  U.S. land revenues were sequentially lower as we operated fewer pressure pumping fleets due to a weak environment for pricing and utilization.  U.S. offshore results were also lower as activity levels skewed towards lower margin drilling activity.  Also, as expected, completion tools revenue in the Gulf of Mexico decreased during the quarter after a strong finish to 2018.  Despite the shift in activity mix, and expected seasonal lull experienced during the quarter, we believe that U.S. offshore activity will improve as the year progresses.  International activity levels were stable as oil field activity continues to steadily increase in these markets.

“There remains considerable uncertainty around the North American service market this year, primarily due to the lack of visibility we have into our customers’ plans for capital expenditures during the second half of the year.  Until we can gain confidence that our customers’ spending levels will support utilization and pricing levels that justify maintaining our assets in the field, an increasing proportion of our capital expenditures will be allocated toward offshore and international opportunities.  Overall, we are committed to a level of capital discipline that will foster free cash flow growth and improved corporate returns.

“We believe that the strength of our business lies in the diversity of our product offerings and geographic reach, as demonstrated by the substantial year over year growth of our first quarter international revenue.  This diversity is essential to the sustainability of our business and will become more pronounced as our results are increasingly supported by U.S. offshore and international oil field activity levels.”

U.S. land revenue was $305.8 million in the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of 14% as compared with revenue of $356.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, and an 8% decrease compared to revenue of $331.5 million in the first quarter of 2018.  U.S. offshore revenue decreased 23% to $69.3 million as compared with revenue of $89.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, and a 9% decrease from revenue of $76.0 million in the first quarter of 2018.  International revenue of $92.1 million was flat as compared to the fourth quarter of 2018 and increased 23% as compared to revenue of $74.8 million in the first quarter of 2018.

All statements other than statements of historical fact regarding the Company’s financial position, financial performance, liquidity, strategic alternatives, market outlook, future capital needs, capital allocation plans, business strategies and other plans and objectives of our management for future operations and activities are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by our management in light of its experience and prevailing circumstances on the date such statements are made. Such forward-looking statements, and the assumptions on which they are based, are inherently speculative and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from such statements.  Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the conditions in the oil and gas industry, especially oil and natural gas prices and capital expenditures by oil and gas companies; our outstanding debt obligations and the potential effect of limiting our ability to fund future growth and operations and increasing our exposure to risk during adverse economic conditions; necessary capital financing may not be available at economic rates or at all; volatility of our common stock; operating hazards, including the significant possibility of accidents resulting in personal injury or death, property damage or environmental damage for which we may have limited or no insurance coverage or indemnification rights; we may not be fully indemnified against losses incurred due to catastrophic events; claims, litigation or other proceedings that require cash payments or could impair our financial condition; credit risk associated with our customer base; the effect of regulatory programs (including regarding worker health and safety laws) and environmental matters on our operations or prospects, including the risk that future changes in the regulation of hydraulic fracturing could reduce demand for our pressure pumping and fluid management services, or that future changes in climate change legislation could result in increased operating costs or reduced commodity demand globally; the impact that unfavorable or unusual weather conditions could have on our operations; the potential inability to retain key employees and skilled workers; political, legal, economic and other risks and uncertainties associated with our international operations; laws, regulations or practices in foreign countries could materially restrict our operations or expose us to additional risks; potential changes in tax laws, adverse positions taken by tax authorities or tax audits impacting our operating results; changes in competitive and technological factors affecting our operations; risks associated with the uncertainty of macroeconomic and business conditions worldwide; not realizing the benefits of acquisitions or divestitures; our operations may be subject to cyber-attacks that could have an adverse effect on our business operations; counterparty risks associated with reliance on key suppliers; challenges with estimating our potential liabilities related to our oil and natural gas property; and risks associated with potential changes of Bureau of Ocean Energy Management security and bonding requirements for offshore platforms.  These risks and other uncertainties related to our business are described in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Investors are cautioned that many of the assumptions on which our forward-looking statements are based are likely to change after such statements are made, including for example the market prices of oil and gas and regulations affecting oil and gas operations, which we cannot control or anticipate. Further, we may make changes to our business strategies and plans (including our capital spending and capital allocation plans) at any time and without notice, based on any changes in the above-listed factors, our assumptions or otherwise, any of which could or will affect our results. For all these reasons, actual events and results may differ materially from those anticipated, estimated, projected or implied by us in our forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update any of our forward-looking statements for any reason, notwithstanding any changes in our assumptions, changes in our business plans, our actual experience, or other changes.  You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof.
