Superior Energy Services Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results


Source: Superior Energy Services, Inc.

HOUSTON, July 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Superior Energy Services, Inc. (the “Company”) today announced a net loss from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2019 of $71.1 million, or $0.46 per share, on revenue of $436.3 million.  This compares to a net loss from continuing operations of $47.7 million, or $0.31 per share, for the first quarter of 2019, on revenue of $467.2 million and a net loss from continuing operations of $25.4 million, or $0.16 per share for the second quarter of 2018, on revenue of $535.5 million.

The Company reported a pre-tax expense of $31.4 million in reduction in value of assets, primarily related to an impairment of intangible assets in its Onshore Completion and Workover Services segment.  The Company also recorded a pre-tax charge of $1.3 million related to restructuring costs.  The resulting adjusted net loss for the second quarter was $46.0 million, or $0.29 per share.  During the second quarter, the Company also recorded an additional deferred tax assets valuation allowance of $22.2 million.

David Dunlap, President and CEO, commented, “Our primary focus is on cash generation and during the second quarter our cash balance improved significantly.  Improved operational performance and continued capital spending discipline resulted in positive free cash flow.  Additionally, the divestiture of our drilling rig service line resulted in $74 million in cash proceeds received at closing.  The second quarter demonstrates that there are opportunities to build our cash position and we will continue our concerted efforts to improve the Company’s capital structure over time.

“U.S land revenues were lower sequentially primarily as a result of the Company electing to operate fewer pressure pumping fleets in West Texas. Our drilling products and production services segments were more resilient despite a declining rig count.  The U.S. land market will likely remain challenged from a competitive perspective, particularly if customer spending tapers, and we will continue to identify opportunities to reduce costs and remain proactive in identifying additional non-core divestitures.

“Increased completion tools and hydraulic workover and snubbing activity resulted in a 20% increase in total U.S. offshore revenue.  In contrast to U.S. land markets, the U.S. offshore market is gradually improving, presenting opportunities for us to put our unique product offerings and solutions to work for acceptable returns.

“International results were stable sequentially, although in general, we believe that activity levels will improve for us over time.  This is due to a combination of increased customer activity and the continued success of our long-term international expansion efforts.” 

Drilling Rigs Divestiture

During the quarter, the Company divested its drilling rigs service line, previously included in its Onshore Completion and Workover Services segment.  This service line included 12 U.S. land based drilling rigs and related equipment for which the Company received $74 million in cash proceeds at closing. Through the first half of 2019, this service line generated $32.8 million of revenue, incurred $6.4 million of depreciation expense, and had $2.6 million of operating losses.

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.
