Dril-Quip, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2021 Results

Thursday, 29. July 2021 22:45

HOUSTON, July 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dril-Quip, Inc. (NYSE: DRQ), (the “Company” or “Dril-Quip”) today reported operational and financial results for the second quarter of 2021.

Key highlights for the second quarter of 2021 included:

  • Generated revenue of $80.8 million for the second quarter of 2021;
  • Reported second quarter net loss of $19.1 million, or $0.54 per share, an improvement of $15.3 million, or $0.43 per share, from the first quarter of 2021;
  • Recorded adjusted EBITDA of $2.6 million, or 3.2% of revenue, including a one-time $2.3 million negative impact related to termination of the forge facility lease;
  • Second quarter net cash provided by operating activities of $11.3 million and free cash flow of $8.2 million, or 10.2% of revenue;
  • Booked $50.4 million of new product orders during the second quarter of 2021; and
  • Executed strategic collaboration agreement with a major oilfield service peer for the supply of subsea wellheads, tubular goods, liner hangers and related tools and services.

Blake DeBerry, Dril-Quip’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “In the second quarter, we delivered product bookings of $50 million, which put us 11 percent ahead of our bookings year-to-date compared to the prior year. Excluding the large project booking in the first quarter of 2021, this also represents an increase of more than 30 percent sequentially to our base bookings. We also generated positive free cash flow of $8 million in the second quarter resulting in approximately $19 million of free cash flow through the first half of 2021, an improvement of roughly $45 million compared to the first half of 2020. These year-over-year improvements can be attributed to our employees’ hard work and ability to service our customers and provide the solutions they need as well as manage our working capital more efficiently.”

“The second quarter also marked significant progress toward our strategic growth pillars. First, we entered into a collaboration and supply agreement with an integrated industry peer to serve as a supplier of subsea wellheads, tubular goods, liner hangers and related tools and services. This agreement increases market access for Dril-Quip by participating in integrated projects and allows customer access to our best-in-class products within an integrated subsea offering. Second, we had several key milestones in our downhole tools business that we believe will result in sustainable improvement in revenue and profitability. These include an exclusive contract with a national oil company in Brazil to provide XPak™ De liner hanger systems over the next three years, an award for a major offshore gas project in Saudi Arabia with a specialized customer driven solution, and increased participation in several peer-to-peer projects that are opening doors to new markets and customers. These wins are a direct result of our renewed and refocused strategy in the downhole business.”

“Finally, we built on previous success in the expansion of our ‘e-Series’ technologies product suite with installations of our DXe wellhead connector in the North Sea. This high fatigue wellhead connector is uniquely suited for drillships operating in the shallow, harsh water environments common to the area. Furthermore, with a favorable judgment in our lawsuit with FMC Technologies, Inc., we saw increased interest and continued engagement with customers and peers for our VXTe subsea tree technology. Many of these customers have been particularly interested in the VXTe subsea trees ability to not only save them time and money on their wells, but also reduce their carbon footprint by an estimated 1,000 metric tons per well. With a VXTe tree expected to be delivered later this year, we are optimistic that, depending on the customer’s schedule, the first opportunity for installation of this disruptive technology will take place no later than the first quarter of 2022.”  

“In addition to these strategic wins, we also experienced some challenges during the quarter that impacted our financial results. In connection with the lessee’s termination of our forge facility lease at the end of April, we had a negative impact on our revenue and gross margins during the second quarter. The monthly cost of maintaining the forge is negligible and we are exploring potential future arrangements. The second quarter also saw the global market for raw materials and freight prices increase. We have yet to experience a significant impact to our margins due to these increases and we continue to closely monitor the changes in our materials and logistics costs. Accordingly, we have notified our customers that a surcharge will be added to new orders to ensure that cost increases in longer lead time items will not negatively impact margins.”

“There are still concerns about the pace of global economic growth, and the corresponding recovery of oil and gas demand, resulting from ongoing challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are optimistic about the second half of 2021 leading into 2022. We are seeing encouraging signs from our customers as many begin to formulate their 2022 capital budgets in the third quarter and expect additional resources to be allocated toward increased offshore activity. These are positive indications for an increase in orders. We also anticipate that our wellhead supply collaboration could begin to yield benefits in late 2021 going into 2022 which would further enhance our product orders and backlog. As we look toward improvements in the macro environment, Dril-Quip will continue to prioritize delivering our customers technology that offers improved safety, reliability, and cost savings all while reducing their carbon footprint. As always, we will continue controlling costs through productivity improvements and managing our working capital to maximize our return on invested capital.”

Operational and Financial Results

Revenue, Cost of Sales and Gross Operating Margin

Consolidated revenue for the second quarter of 2021 was $80.8 million, down $0.4 million from the first quarter of 2021 and $9.6 million lower compared to the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in revenue sequentially can be attributed to lower leasing revenue from the cancellation of the forge facility leasing agreement with AFGlobal Corporation (“AFGlobal”). The decrease year-over-year was driven by decreased new order volumes in mid-to-late 2020 and lower services revenue from a decline in offshore oil and gas activity. The decline in orders and activity can primarily be attributed to reduced demand for oil and gas and delays in customer drilling schedules as a result of a more gradual economic recovery from the global pandemic.

Cost of sales for the second quarter of 2021 was $61.5 million, an increase of $4.8 million sequentially and a decrease of $5.4 million compared to the prior year. Gross operating margin for the second quarter of 2021 was 23.8%, a decrease from 30.1% in the first quarter of 2021 and a decrease from 26.0% in the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in gross margin sequentially was driven primarily by unfavorable product mix due to higher contribution from lower margin fabrication joints, higher manufacturing overhead related to the transition of downhole tool manufacturing to a third party and higher leasing expense associated with the expensing of unbilled revenue related to the termination of our forge facility lease agreement with AFGlobal. The decline in gross margin year-over-year was primarily related to the aforementioned lease termination impact and unfavorable product mix. Adjusting for the impact of the forge lease termination, gross margins would have seen an improvement of 0.7% year-over-year.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the second quarter of 2021 were $29.6 million, mostly flat compared to the first quarter of 2021 and $6.3 million higher than the second quarter of 2020. The increase in SG&A year-over-year was primarily due to higher legal expenses related to the lawsuit with FMC Technologies, Inc., higher compensation expense accrual and fewer government subsidies related to the global pandemic, partially offset by lower SG&A expense from cost actions taken in 2020.

Net Loss, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow

For the second quarter of 2021, the Company reported a net loss of $19.1 million, or $0.54 per share, compared to a net loss of $34.4 million, or $0.97 per share, for the first quarter of 2021 and a net loss of $14.1 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2020. The sequential decrease in net loss was primarily driven by lower restructuring and other charges, partially offset by higher cost of sales. Net loss year-over-year was mostly flat due to a decrease in income tax provision in the second quarter of 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $2.6 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $8.0 million for the first quarter of 2021 and $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2020. The sequential decrease in adjusted EBITDA is attributed the impact of the forge facility lease cancellation and higher contribution from lower margin fabrication joint revenue. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA year-over-year can be attributed to the same factors as well as an increase in compensation accrual, partially offset by transformational cost actions taken in 2020.

Net cash provided by operations was $11.3 million and free cash flow was $8.2 million, or 10.2% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in net cash provided by operations of $1.7 million compared to the first quarter of 2021 was primarily due to an increase in finished goods inventory, partially offset by successful negotiation of extended supplier payment terms. Capital expenditures in the second quarter of 2021 were approximately $3.5 million, the majority of which was related to machinery and equipment at our Houston manufacturing facility as well as rental tools for our downhole tools business.

Productivity Improvements and Liquidity

In the first quarter of 2021, the Company announced its plans to target productivity gains of approximately $10 million in annualized savings, of which approximately $5 million is expected to be realized in 2021. The majority of these planned gains relate to the further refinement of our manufacturing and supply chain operations as part of the Company’s LEAN journey. The Company executed an estimated $7.5 million of these annualized savings through the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Dril-Quip’s cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2021 was $370.5 million, which, together with amounts available under the asset-based lending (ABL) facility, resulted in approximately $395.6 million of available liquidity. The Company plans to use its strong liquidity position and debt-free balance sheet to ensure its ability invest in innovative technology, pursue strategic acquisitions and maintain the financial flexibility to respond quickly to its customer growing needs in anticipation of a subsea equipment market recovery and expansion in the coming years.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Diluted EPS, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS are defined as net income (loss) and earnings per share, respectively, excluding the impact of foreign currency gains or losses as well as other significant non-cash items and certain charges and credits.

Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less net cash used in the purchase of property, plant and equipment.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding income taxes, interest income and expense, depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash gains or losses from foreign currency exchange rate changes as well as other significant non-cash items and other adjustments for certain charges and credits.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures enable it to evaluate and compare more effectively the results of our operations period over period and identify operating trends by removing the effect of its capital structure from its operating structure. In addition, the Company believes that these measures are supplemental measurement tools used by analysts and investors to help evaluate overall operating performance, ability to pursue and service possible debt opportunities and make future capital expenditures. Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow do not represent funds available for our discretionary use and are not intended to represent or to be used as a substitute for net income or net cash provided by operating activities, as measured under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

See “Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for additional information concerning non-GAAP financial information, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial information presented in this press release to the most directly comparable financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial information supplements and should be read together with, and is not an alternative or substitute for, the Company’s financial results reported in accordance with GAAP. Because non-GAAP financial information is not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures.
