CEO Commentary

“We are proud of how remarkably well our organization performed in the fourth quarter and during the course of 2020 as we completed our successful transformational merger with ChampionX and demonstrated the resiliency of our portfolio against the backdrop of the global pandemic and one of the most challenging periods in the history of the energy industry. I am grateful to all of our employees for their dedication and commitment to improving the lives of our customers and communities, and we remain committed to taking all necessary steps to protect the health and safety of our employees,“ ChampionX’s President and Chief Executive Officer Sivasankaran “Soma” Somasundaram said.

“During the fourth quarter, which marked just our second full quarter as a new company, we delivered adjusted EBITDA of $109 million, which represented a sequential increase of 25%. Benefiting both from the recovery of the 2020 downturn and seasonal tailwinds, we generated fourth quarter revenue of $706 million, which increased 11% sequentially, with both our North American and international revenues posting double-digit sequential growth during the period.

“We once again demonstrated the strong positive free cash flow profile of our Company as we generated free cash flow of $108 million in the fourth quarter and we further strengthened our balance sheet by repaying $80 million of debt during the quarter. We ended the quarter with $551 million of liquidity, including $201 million of cash and $350 million of available capacity on our revolver. We remain focused on our free cash flow generation and we intend to continue paying down debt this year.

“Our team continues to execute well on our merger integration plans and we still anticipate fully capturing our increased targeted cost synergies of $125 million within 24 months of the merger closing.

“As we look to the first quarter, we expect seasonal declines in our international operations, partially offset by anticipated continued positive momentum in our shorter-cycle North American land-oriented businesses. We anticipate some near-term cost pressures as oilfield activity levels normalize versus the pandemic-induced trough levels of last year, but we expect year-over-year margin improvement as we exit 2021. We are currently assessing the first quarter impact of the severe winter storms in major oil producing basins, so our guidance does not include the impact of extreme weather challenges experienced in February. Excluding winter storm impacts, on a consolidated basis, in the first quarter we expect revenue to be between $650 million and $700 million, and we expect adjusted EBITDA of $90 million to $100 million.

“We are excited about the prospects for our Company as this year unfolds and we believe that our disciplined operating model, differentiated products and technology, robust free cash flow, and production-oriented portfolio, combined with our strong and motivated team, will enable us to be a long-term winner in the energy transition.”

Results on a Pro Forma Basis

On June 3, 2020, Apergy Corporation closed on the acquisition of ChampionX Holding, Inc. (“the Transaction”) and assumed the name ChampionX Corporation (“ChampionX”). Actual results reflect the respective contributions from each company based on the close of the Transaction. For comparative purposes, management has also presented herein certain unaudited pro forma financial information as if the Transaction was completed on January 1, 2019, including results on a pro forma basis for revenue, income (loss) before income taxes, income (loss) before income taxes margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, segment revenue, segment operating profit (loss), adjusted segment EBITDA, and adjusted segment EBITDA margin for the quarterly periods ended December 31, 2020, September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, and for the full year periods ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. The financial results on a pro forma basis are provided to assist investors in assessing ChampionX’s performance on a basis that includes the combined results of operations of both Apergy Corporation and ChampionX Holding, Inc. for the full reporting period. ChampionX management believes this unaudited pro forma historical financial information helps investors understand the long-term profitability trends of its newly combined business giving effect to the Transaction and facilitates comparisons of our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers. The historical financial results on a pro forma basis herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

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 ChampionX, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to ChampionX, pro forma adjusted EBITDA, pro forma adjusted EBITDA margin, pro forma segment revenue, pro forma segment operating profit (loss), and pro forma adjusted segment EBITDA 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.

This press release also contains certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA. Due to the forward-looking nature of the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measure, management cannot reliably or reasonably predict certain of the necessary components of the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures, such as net income. Accordingly, we are unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of such forward looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures. Amounts excluded from these non-GAAP measures in future periods could be significant. Management believes the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures are good tools for internal use and the investment community in evaluating ChampionX’s overall financial performance.

(1)  Includes charges for goodwill and long-lived asset impairments of $657.3 million in our Production & Automation Technologies segment during the year ended December 31, 2020. During the year ended December 31, 2019, we incurred an impairment loss of $1.7 million related to the classification of our pressure vessel manufacturing business as held for sale.
(2) Dover Separation and supplemental benefit costs primarily relates to separation costs, and to a lesser extent, enhanced or supplemental benefits provided to employees no longer participating in Dover Corporation benefit and compensation plans. During the year ended December 31, 2019, pursuant to the provisions of the tax matters agreement with Dover Corporation, we recognized approximately $3.4 million of tax indemnification expense. This was settled and paid during the three months ended June 30, 2020.
(3)  Includes costs incurred in relation to business combinations, primarily related to the Merger of legacy ChampionX of $0.9 million and $61.8 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively. Additionally, we incurred professional fees related to the integration of legacy ChampionX of $4.9 million and $23.0 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively.
(4)  Includes revenue associated with the amortization of a liability established as part of the Merger, representing unfavorable terms under the Cross Supply Agreement with Ecolab. This is partially offset by incremental expense related to the step-up of inventory value resulting from the purchase accounting entries.

ChampionX is providing the below unaudited supplemental historical financial information of the Company on a non-GAAP adjusted basis for the three months ended December 31, 2020, September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 and the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 as if the Merger was completed on January 1, 2019, to assist investors in assessing ChampionX’s historical performance on a basis that includes the combined results of operations of both legacy Apergy Corporation and legacy ChampionX. The unaudited pro forma historical financial information has been prepared by ChampionX using assumptions that ChampionX believes provide a reasonable basis for presenting the combination of the historical financial information of legacy Apergy and legacy ChampionX. As legacy ChampionX historically was unable to allocate certain charges on a segment basis, we have determined an allocation methodology for historical pro forma information to provide additional comparability amongst the legacy ChampionX segments. ChampionX management believes this unaudited supplemental historical financial information helps investors understand the long-term profitability trends of its newly combined business giving effect to the Merger and facilitates comparisons of our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers. The supplemental unaudited financial information herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The supplemental unaudited pro forma combined financial information does not purport to represent what the actual results of operations or the financial position of the combined company would have been had the Transactions occurred on the dates assumed, nor are they indicative of future results of operations or financial position of the combined company.
