THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Apergy Corporation (“Apergy”) (NYSE: APY) today reported full year 2019 revenue of $1.1 billion and net income attributable to Apergy of $52.2 million.  Adjusted net income attributable to Apergy was $77.1 million. Full year 2019 adjusted EBITDA was $251.2 million. Income before income taxes margin was 5.2%, and adjusted EBITDA margin was 22.2%. Net cash provided by operating activities was $155.9 million and free cash flow was $116.1 million for the full year. i

For the fourth quarter revenue was $247.7 million, net loss attributable to Apergy of $1.8 million, and adjusted net income attributable to Apergy of $10.3 million. Adjusted EBITDA was $44.6 million. Loss before income taxes margin was 4.3%, and adjusted EBITDA margin was 18.0%. Fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA included $7.7 million of isolated charges, including a customer bankruptcy, fixed asset adjustments, and customer concessions within our U.S. artificial lift business. Cash from operating activities in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $32.5 million, and free cash flow was $24.3 million.

“The past year has been an eventful and transformative year for Apergy. We executed well during a period of changing market conditions, continued to invest in delivering superior products and services to our customers, plus announced a strategically important merger with ChampionX which will help propel our growth into the next decade,” said Sivasankaran “Soma” Somasundaram, President and Chief Executive Officer. “For full year 2019, we generated adjusted EBITDA of $251 million and free cash flow of $116 million, continuing to demonstrate the profitability and cash generating capabilities of our portfolio. Consistent with our capital allocation priorities, we repaid $105 million of term loan debt in 2019, including $30 million in the fourth quarter. Our disciplined capital management and focus on cash generation has enabled us to repay $150 million of debt since our spin-off.

“During the fourth quarter, our teams executed well against a challenging market backdrop, including the effects of E&P budget exhaustion in North America. The quarter had a number of unusual items affecting results including additional third-party expenses related to our third quarter Form 10-Q filing and charges related to isolated customer collection challenges with a small number of customers in our U.S. artificial lift business, including one bankruptcy, dispute settlements, and customer concessions. I am pleased that on an operational basis our results showed continued margin resiliency and strong free cash flow generation. In addition, we introduced several new products in the fourth quarter.

“Since the beginning of the new year, we have seen business activity levels sequentially improve, driven by reloaded North American E&P capital budgets, continued international growth, as well as increased orders by our drill bit customers. Consolidated January 2020 revenue was 11% greater than December 2019 revenue with particular strength in Drilling Technologies, which increased 29%. Additionally, we remain focused on managing our costs, including building on our restructuring savings implemented to date, as well as driving free cash flow generation. Consistent with historical performance, for Apergy, we expect to deliver a free cash flow to revenue ratio of approximately 10% for full year 2020. While the near-term market remains volatile due to global events, we remain focused on the factors under our control.

“Looking ahead, our merger with ChampionX is expected to close by the end of the second quarter. We are pleased that ChampionX performed as we expected in 2019. Our integration planning is well underway, and as we make progress on our integration planning we are even more excited about our future as a combined company, and we have increased confidence in achieving our target of $75 million in annual cost synergies. We expect our planned merger with ChampionX to solidify our position as a focused, scale leader in the production segment by delivering our customers a full suite of production-optimization solutions. The combined company will have a strong balance sheet, greater scale, a larger geographic footprint, enhanced customer touchpoints, and reduced leverage supported by strong cash flow generation through the oil and gas cycle. Given the strengths of the combined portfolio, and the benefits of cost synergies, together with ChampionX, we expect to achieve another year of differentiated performance in 2020.” ii

Production & Automation Technologies – Full Year 2019

For full year 2019, Production & Automation Technologies revenue decreased $48.2 million, or 5%, driven by lower customer spending in North America, including the effects of E&P capital discipline in the second half of the year, partially offset by increasing international activity. North American revenue declined by $59.8 million, or 8%, and international revenue increased by $11.5 million, or 8%.

Revenue from digital products was $134.7 million for full year 2019, an increase of $15.4 million, or 13%, compared to the full-year 2018.

Segment operating profit decreased $20.2 million, and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased $13.9 million, or 7%, due to the lower North American volume and the $7.7 million of isolated charges, which includes a customer bankruptcy, fixed asset adjustments, and customer concessions within the U.S. artificial lift business, partially offset by the benefits of cost reduction actions and productivity initiatives.

Drilling Technologies – Full Year 2019

For full year 2019, Drilling Technologies revenue decreased by $38.7 million, or 14%, driven by the significant decline in U.S. drilling activity in the second half of 2019 and the related customer destocking of polycrystalline diamond cutter inventories, as well as the push-out of diamond bearings deliveries due to capital discipline by our oilfield services customers.

Segment operating profit decreased $25.1 million and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased by $25.8 million, or 24%, due to the lower volumes, partially offset by aggressive cost reduction actions, including headcount reductions taken in the third and fourth quarters, as well as the benefits of productivity initiatives.

Production & Automation Technologies – Q4-19

In the fourth quarter of 2019, Production & Automation Technologies revenue decreased $18.3 million, or 8%, sequentially, driven by lower customer spending in North America, including the effects of E&P budget exhaustion and capital discipline, particularly in December, as our U.S. customers restrained their spending to manage cash flow during 2019.

On a year-over-year basis, Production & Automation Technologies revenue decreased $33.7 million, or 14%, due to lower artificial lift and other production equipment revenue in North America, partially offset by higher international and digital revenue.

International markets continue to remain positive, and our Production & Automation Technologies fourth quarter revenue outside of North America was up 3% sequentially and 11% on a year-over-year basis.

Revenue from digital products was $34.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, an increase of less than 1% on a sequential basis and 6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.

Segment operating profit decreased $16.8 million, and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased $14.8 million, or 29%, sequentially, due to the reduced volume and an unfavorable product margin mix, combined with the $7.7 million of isolated charges, which includes a customer bankruptcy, fixed asset adjustments, and customer concessions within the U.S. artificial lift business, which were partially offset by cost reduction actions.

On a year-over-year basis, segment operating profit decreased $17.1 million and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased $15.4 million, or 30%, due to the lower volume and the $7.7 million isolated charge, which were partially offset by cost reduction actions.

Drilling Technologies – Q4-19

In the fourth quarter of 2019, Drilling Technologies revenue decreased by $10.8 million, or 20%, sequentially, driven by the decline in U.S. drilling activity and customer destocking of polycrystalline diamond cutter inventories, as well as the push-out of orders for diamond bearings due to capital discipline by our oilfield services customers.

From an operational perspective, within our Drilling Technologies segment, order rates for polycrystalline diamond cutters stabilized and subsequently improved in the later stages of the fourth quarter of 2019 as customers completed their inventory destocking activities, and we have seen improved order rates entering 2020. The estimated impact of destocking by our drill bit customers on our fourth quarter 2019 Drilling Technologies revenue was an incremental $4 million from the third quarter of 2019.

Sequentially, the average worldwide and U.S. rig counts declined 5% and 11%, respectively. On a year-over-year basis, the average worldwide and U.S. rig counts declined 11% and 24%, respectively.

Segment operating profit decreased $5.2 million and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased by $5.2 million, or 31%, sequentially, due to the lower volumes, partially offset by cost reduction actions executed at the end of the third quarter, and the benefits of productivity initiatives.

Year-over-year, segment operating profit decreased $18.2 million, and adjusted segment EBITDA decreased by $18.1 million, or 61%, as a result of the lower volume, partially offset by cost reduction actions and productivity initiatives.

Q1-20 Guidance

Based on order rates across both segments, Apergy anticipates sequential improvement across its business in Q1-20 and is providing guidance for the quarter as follows:

    Three Months Ended
March 31, 2020
Consolidated revenue $255 to $265 million
Adjusted EBITDA $50 to $56 million
Depreciation & amortization expense ~$30 million
Interest expense ~$9 million
Effective tax rate 22% to 24%

For full year 2020, we expect our capital expenditures to be:

  • Infrastructure related capital expenditures equal to 2.5% of revenue; plus
  • Capital expenditure portion for leased ESP investment between $5 and $10 million

For full year 2020, we expect the investment in leased assets in the net cash from operating activities section of our consolidated statement of cash flows to be between $20 and $25 million.

Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow to revenue ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. Management cannot reliably or reasonably predict certain of the necessary components of the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures, such as net income and cash from operating activities. Accordingly, we are unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of the forward looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures. Amounts excluded from the non-GAAP measures in future periods could be significant. However, we use adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow to revenue ratio as internal measures of the company’s operational results and believe they are good tools for the investment community to evaluate Apergy’s overall financial performance across periods.

Other Business Highlights

  • For the second year in a row, Apergy was recognized as the leader in total customer satisfaction in oilfield products for 2020, as well as first in 8 additional categories, in a survey conducted by EnergyPoint Research, an independent customer satisfaction research firm.
  • Expect to capture Electric Submersible Pump (“ESP”) field trial with one additional major International Oil Company (IOC) in the Permian basin.
  • Launched XSPOC 3.0 production optimization software providing a number of powerful updates including optimization, artificial intelligence, and physics-based diagnostics enabling customers to reduce their production costs and increase flow.
  • Designed and launched the Affirmed PowerFit motor for slim hole ESP applications, providing customers with increased productivity in small diameter unconventional wells.
  • Seventy-eight patents were issued to Drilling Technologies in 2019, twenty-one were issued in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Developed improved application-specific designs for polycrystalline diamond cutters across multiple basins to enhance performance in both abrasion and impact applications.

Basis of Presentation

For periods prior to May 9, 2018 (the “Separation”), our results of operations, financial position and cash flows are derived from the consolidated financial statements and accounting records of Dover Corporation (“Dover”) and reflect the combined historical results of operations, financial position and cash flows of certain Dover entities conducting its upstream oil and gas energy business within Dover’s Energy segment, including an allocated portion of Dover’s corporate costs. Our financial statements have been presented as if such businesses had been combined for all periods prior to the Separation. These pre-Separation combined financial statements may not include all of the actual expenses that would have been incurred had we been a stand-alone public company during the periods presented prior to the Separation, and consequently may not reflect our results of operations, financial position and cash flows had we been a stand-alone public company during the periods presented prior to the Separation. All financial information presented after the Separation represents the consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows of Apergy.

About Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), this news release presents non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted segment EBITDA, adjusted segment EBITDA margin, adjusted net income attributable to Apergy, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to Apergy, reflect the core operating results of our businesses and help facilitate comparisons of operating performance across periods. In addition, free cash flow and free cash flow to revenue ratio are used by management to measure our ability to generate positive cash flow for debt reduction and to support our strategic objectives, while adjusted working capital provides a meaningful measure of operational results by showing changes caused by revenue or our operational initiatives. The foregoing non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP measures is included in the accompanying financial tables.
