Civeo Announces First Quarter 2015 Earnings

  • Strong operating cash flows after capital expenditures driven by cost containment and capital discipline
  • Announcing receipt of necessary lender commitments to amend credit facility, expanding leverage covenants and allowing for planned migration to Canada
  • Civeo's focus remains on maximizing occupancy and revenues, reducing costs and limiting capital spending

HOUSTON, April 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Civeo Corporation (NYSE:CVEO) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Bradley J. Dodson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Civeo, said, "We are pleased with our results for the first quarter 2015, in light of difficult market conditions, as well as our ability to increase operating cash flows after capital expenditures when compared to the first quarter 2014. We remain confident in our team's ability to manage through the headwinds and continue meeting and exceeding the needs of our clients to generate the best possible results for shareholders."

Mr. Dodson continued, "We are starting to see opportunities emerge in our legacy oil sands markets driven by turnaround and maintenance activity. However, our customers remain cautious regarding their commitments to capital spending, making timing difficult to predict. In addition, we remain cautiously optimistic on the prospect of LNG development on the west coast of Canada, an opportunity for which Civeo has land banked several potential lodge locations. In the first quarter, we were awarded multi-year contracts for certain of our lodges and villages in both Canada and Australia, as well as some shorter-term lodge contracts and a build-for-sale contract. In our U.S. operations, we have been negatively impacted by the unprecedented swiftness of the rig count correction, which has resulted in lower operating results."

Mr. Dodson concluded, "We remain focused on completing our previously announced migration to Canada and are making substantial progress. We have received the necessary commitments from our lending group to allow us to navigate through this difficult period. The shareholder vote to approve the migration is scheduled for May 14, 2015. Operationally, we continue to aggressively pursue opportunities for both new and existing assets, while vigilantly managing operating costs and capital spending."

FIRST QUARTER 2015 RESULTS

In the first quarter of 2015, the Company generated revenues of $171.0 million, EBITDA of $48.1 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $53.0 million. Net loss for the quarter was essentially zero, inclusive of a $2.4 million (or $0.02 per diluted share) after-tax loss related to a decision to close Civeo's U.S. manufacturing facility and a $0.8 million (or $0.01 per diluted share) after-tax loss from costs incurred in connection with the proposed migration to Canada.

(EBITDA is defined as net income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted to exclude impairment charges and certain other costs such as those incurred associated with the spin-off and the migration).

In the first quarter of 2014, the Company generated revenues of $252.8 million. Net income in the year ago period was $36.2 million, or $0.34 per diluted share. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of 2014 was $92.3 million and $92.9 million, respectively.

Revenues and Adjusted EBITDA declined in 2015 as compared to 2014 primarily due to lower occupancy levels in the Company's Australian villages and Canadian lodges. In addition, first quarter 2015 results were impacted by the unfavorable impact of a stronger U.S. dollar compared to the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar, which declined in relative value by 11% and 12%, respectively, on a year-over-year basis.

BUSINESS SEGMENT RESULTS

(Unless otherwise noted, the following discussion compares the quarterly results for the first quarter of 2015 to the results for the first quarter of 2014. The 2015 results discussed below exclude the migration expenses noted above.)

Canada

The Canadian segment generated revenues of $116.9 million and EBITDA of $37.5 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to revenues and EBITDA of $180.3 million and $61.8 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2014. The Company's first quarter 2015 results were negatively impacted by a weaker Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar, which reduced revenues by $14.5 million and EBITDA by $4.6 million. Excluding the year-over-year impact of exchange rates, revenues would have decreased $48.9 million and EBITDA would have decreased by $19.7 million. On a constant currency basis, revenues decreased due to reduced occupancy at lodges, as well as lower contract camp revenue due to large pipeline projects that did not recur in 2015. These items were partially offset by the opening of the Company's McClelland Lake lodge in the second quarter of 2014. Additionally, SG&A expenses were lower year-over-year due to cost containment efforts that resulted in lower compensation expense and overhead costs. RevPAR decreased 36% year-over-year to $74 in the first quarter of 2015, compared to $115 in the first quarter of 2014. The RevPAR decrease was attributable to declining foreign exchange rates and lower occupancy.

Australia

The Australian segment generated revenues of $41.9 million and EBITDA of $20.7 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to revenues of $55.5 million and EBITDA of $30.8 million in the first quarter of 2014. The Company's first quarter 2015 results were negatively impacted by a weaker Australian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar, which reduced revenues by $5.8 million and EBITDA by $2.9 million. Excluding the year-over-year impact of exchange rates, revenues would have decreased $7.8 million and EBITDA would have decreased $7.2 million. On a constant currency basis, the revenue and EBITDA declines were primarily due to lower occupancy resulting from reduced customer commitments and lower overall customer activity and spending in the Bowen Basin. RevPAR decreased 25% year-over-year to $50 in the first quarter of 2015, compared to $67 in the first quarter of 2014. The RevPAR decrease was attributable to the weaker Australian dollar and lower occupancy levels for the Australian villages.

U.S.

The U.S. segment generated revenues of $12.2 million, EBITDA of ($3.6) million and Adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million for the first quarter of 2015, compared to revenues, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA of $17.0 million, $3.1 million and $3.2 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA decreased year-over-year due to lower U.S. drilling activity in the Bakken, Rockies and Texas markets, increased competition and lower pricing.

INCOME TAXES

The Company recognized income tax expense of $1.1 million, which resulted in an effective tax rate of 83.4% in the first quarter of 2015 compared to income tax expense of $12.3 million, and an effective tax rate of 25.2%, in the first quarter of 2014. The increase in the effective tax rate from the prior year was largely the result of a change in the earnings mix between different tax jurisdictions, as well as discrete items totaling $0.5 million related the impact of a portion of our undistributed foreign earnings which we no longer intend to continue to indefinitely reinvest. The Company expects its consolidated effective tax rate to approximate 50% for the remainder of 2015.

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND COMMITMENTS TO AMEND CREDIT FACILITY

The Company invested $10.7 million in capital expenditures during the first quarter of 2015. Capital spending during the quarter was primarily related to routine capital maintenance spending in Canada and Australia. The Company currently expects capital expenditures of approximately $75 million to $85 million for full year 2015.

As of the end of the first quarter, the Company had total liquidity of approximately $560.7 million, comprising $280.9 million available under its credit facilities and $279.8 million of cash on hand.

Civeo has received (1) the required consents of the lenders to amend its Credit Facility, subject to customary conditions, to allow for its planned migration to Canada and (2) commitments from its lenders to (i) borrow under new Canadian tranches of the Credit Facility, (ii) substantially reduce both the existing U.S. term loan and the U.S. revolver and (iii) increase the maximum leverage ratio allowed under the Credit Facility to 4.00 for the fourth quarter of 2015, 4.25 for the first quarter of 2016 and 4.50 beginning with the second quarter of 2016 before decreasing in the first quarter of 2017. The Company is currently finalizing the documentation of the amended credit facility with its syndicate of banks and expects to complete the documentation before its annual shareholders meeting on May 14. The amendment, if finalized, would be effective upon completion of the migration to Canada.

Frank Steininger, Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, said, "The amendment of our credit facility will be an important milestone for Civeo as it will permit our migration to Canada. We plan to use our existing cash to significantly reduce our overall indebtedness. Once finalized, the amended credit agreement will give Civeo increased borrowing capacity and access to capital in Canada, the jurisdiction where we conduct the majority of our business, and allow for better operating flexibility."

MANAGEMENT GUIDANCE

The Company achieved first quarter 2015 revenue and Adjusted EBITDA that was in line with its previously issued guidance and is maintaining its 2015 full year guidance as previously provided. The Company today issued second quarter 2015 guidance of $135 million to $144 million in revenues and $29 million to $33 million in EBITDA. The Company's full year 2015 guidance is revenues of $520 million to $560 million and EBITDA of $130 million to $150 million.

The term Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted to exclude impairment charges and certain other costs such as those incurred associated with the Spin-Off. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles and should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for net income or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The Company has included EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental disclosures because its management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information regarding our ability to service debt and to fund capital expenditures and provides investors a helpful measure for comparing its operating performance with the performance of other companies that have different financing and capital structures or tax rates. The Company uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to compare and to monitor the performance of its business segments to other comparable public companies and as a benchmark for the award of incentive compensation under its annual incentive compensation plan.
