HOUSTON, Feb. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Archrock, Inc. (NYSE: AROC) (“Archrock” or the “Company”) today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year 2019 and provided 2020 financial guidance.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Results

  • Achieved record net income and adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2019.
  • Net income for the fourth quarter was $46.0 million compared to $13.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure defined below) for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $112.5 million compared to $97.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Previously declared quarterly dividend of $0.145 per common share for the fourth quarter of 2019 was 10% higher compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Dividend coverage was 2.8x for 2019; the leverage ratio was 4.2x at year end.

Fourth quarter 2019 net income of $46.0 million included a non-cash benefit from the release of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance of $39.6 million and a non-cash long-lived asset impairment of $25.8 million. Full year 2019 net income was $97.3 million compared to $29.2 million in 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $112.5 million, up 15% compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. Full year adjusted EBITDA of $416.5 million was up 18% compared to 2018. Results for the fourth quarter and full year 2019 include $6.4 million and $16.0 million, respectively, in gains related to the sale of compression and other assets.

Management Commentary and Outlook

“Archrock’s solid operational momentum continued through the end of 2019 as we delivered a sequential increase in utilization and gross margin in our contract operations segment during the fourth quarter,” said Brad Childers, Archrock’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We performed well against our 2019 annual targets and remain on track to meet our three-year capital allocation objectives. This includes dividend growth of between 10% and 15%, dividend coverage above 2.0x, as well as leverage below 4.0x in 2020.”

“I am proud of our team for achieving several milestones in 2019,” continued Childers. “We completed an accretive acquisition, reduced the age of our fleet, drove substantial profitability improvements and advanced our leverage reduction while eliminating our need for external financing for at least five years. Together, these successes enhance our position as the leader in U.S. natural gas compression.”

“U.S. natural gas production is expected to reach record levels for the fourth year in a row in 2020, although the annual growth rate is expected to decelerate. Against this backdrop, we expect consistent demand for our natural gas compression services, particularly for the large horsepower class where we strategically focus and deploy capital.”

“Our production-oriented business, aggressive cost management and customer commitments provide us with good visibility into our outlook in the coming year, even as industry activity moderates. Archrock’s 2020 plan aligns investment with the market environment and highlights our focus on free cash flow generation.  Our fleet is highly competitive and our business has proved resilient through prior commodity cycles. This, combined with the Company’s solid financial position, gives me confidence in our ability to achieve differentiated performance within the compression industry and broader energy landscape today, and well into the future,” concluded Childers.

Contract Operations

For the fourth quarter of 2019, contract operations segment revenue totaled $204.4 million, reflecting an increase of 16% compared to $176.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Gross margin was $128.4 million, up $23.5 million or 22% from the fourth quarter of 2018, reflecting a gross margin percentage of 63% compared to 59% in the prior year quarter. Total operating horsepower at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019 was 3.9 million, up from 3.5 million at the end of the prior year quarter, reflecting an 11% increase. Utilization at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019 remained consistent with the fourth quarter of 2018 at 89%.

For the full year 2019, contract operations segment revenue totaled $771.5 million, reflecting an increase of 15% compared to $672.5 million for the full year 2018. Gross margin was $474.3 million, up $74.8 million or 19% as compared to the prior year, reflecting a gross margin percentage of 61% compared to 59% in the prior year.

Aftermarket Services

For the fourth quarter of 2019, aftermarket services segment revenue totaled $41.6 million compared to $56.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 due to continued customer deferral of maintenance activities. Gross margin of $6.3 million was down from $8.6 million during the fourth quarter of 2018. Gross margin percentage of 15% was consistent with the prior year as we continued to optimize our cost structure and prioritize high-margin business within our aftermarket services operations.

For the full year 2019, aftermarket services segment revenue totaled $193.9 million for 2019 compared to $231.9 million in 2018. Gross margin was $35.0 million, down $5.6 million from 2018; however, 2019 gross margin percentage increased year-over-year to 18% from 17%.

Balance Sheet

Long-term debt as of December 31, 2019 was $1.84 billion compared to $1.83 billion as of September 30, 2019. The Company’s leverage ratio as of December 31, 2019 was 4.2x compared to 4.3x as of September 30, 2019. Our available liquidity as of December 31, 2019 was $669.7 million compared to $246.3 million as of September 30, 2019.

We amended our $1.25 billion asset-based revolving credit facility on November 8, 2019. The amendment extends the maturity date of our credit facility to November 2024 provided we refinance or repay our 2022 notes before June 3, 2022.

On December 20, 2019, we completed a private offering of $500 million of 6.25% senior unsecured notes due 2028. Net proceeds were used to repay outstanding borrowings under our revolving credit facility.

Quarterly Dividend

Archrock’s Board of Directors recently declared a quarterly dividend of $0.145 per share of common stock, or $0.580 per share on an annualized basis, unchanged sequentially and up 10% as compared to the fourth quarter 2018. Dividend coverage in the fourth quarter of 2019 was 2.9x. The dividend was paid on February 14, 2020 to stockholders of record at the close of business on February 7, 2020.

2020 Annual Guidance

Archrock is providing annual guidance as follows (in thousands, except percentages and ratios):

Full-Year 2020 Guidance
Low High
Net income (1) $ 67,000 $ 102,000
Adjusted EBITDA (2) 415,000 450,000
Cash available for dividend (3) (4) 223,000 248,000
Segment
Contract operations revenue $ 800,000 $ 825,000
Contract operations gross margin percentage 61.5 % 63.0 %
Aftermarket services revenue $ 195,000 $ 210,000
Aftermarket services gross margin percentage 17.0 % 19.0 %
Selling, general and administrative $ 120,000 $ 125,000
Capital expenditures
Growth capital expenditures $ 80,000 $ 100,000
Maintenance capital expenditures 57,000 63,000
Other capital expenditures 28,000 32,000
Dividend growth 10-15%
Leverage <4.0x
Cash available for dividend coverage >2.0x

(1) 2020 annual guidance for net income does not include the impact of long-lived asset impairment because due to its nature it cannot be accurately forecasted. Long-lived asset impairment does not impact adjusted EBITDA or cash available for dividend, however it is a reconciling item between these measures and net income. Long-lived asset impairment for the years ended 2019 and 2018 was $44.7 million and $28.1 million, respectively.
(2) Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because this non-GAAP measure, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provides a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses this non-GAAP measure as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance, comparability measure and performance measure for period-to-period comparisons.
(3)  Management uses cash available for dividend as a supplemental performance measure to compute the coverage ratio of estimated cash flows to planned dividends.
(4) A forward-looking estimate of cash provided by operating activities is not provided because certain items necessary to estimate cash provided by operating activities, including changes in assets and liabilities, are not estimable at this time. Changes in assets and liabilities were $10.4 million and $(13.2) million for the years ended 2019 and 2018, respectively.

(1) Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because this non-GAAP measure, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provides a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses this non-GAAP measure as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance, comparability measure and performance measure for period-to-period comparisons.
(2)  Management uses cash available for dividend as a supplemental performance measure to compute the coverage ratio of estimated cash flows to planned dividends.

(1) 2020 annual guidance for net income does not include the impact of long-lived asset impairment because due to its nature it cannot be accurately forecasted. Long-lived asset impairment does not impact adjusted EBITDA or cash available for dividend, however it is a reconciling item between these measures and net income. Long-lived asset impairment for the years ended 2019 and 2018 was $44.7 million and $28.1 million, respectively.
(2) Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because this non-GAAP measure, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provides a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses this non-GAAP measure as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance, comparability measure and performance measure for period-to-period comparisons.
(3) Management uses cash available for dividend as a supplemental performance measure to compute the coverage ratio of estimated cash flows to planned dividends.
(4) A forward-looking estimate of cash provided by operating activities is not provided because certain items necessary to estimate cash provided by operating activities, including changes in assets and liabilities, are not estimable at this time. Changes in assets and liabilities were $10.4 million and $(13.2) million for the years ended 2019 and 2018, respectively.
