(NYSE:FI) (“Frank’s” or the “Company”) today reported a net loss of $37.0 million, or $0.21 per share, on revenue of $105.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and an adjusted net loss of $22.4 million, or $0.13 per share. Adjusted net loss excludes $14.5 million in severance and other charges. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was a loss of $3.1 million compared to a net loss of $31.4 million and an adjusted EBITDA loss of $13.7 million for the second quarter 2016.

“In recent months, we have made a strategic investment in the future growth of Frank’s through acquisition and moved forward with implementing additional cost reductions to protect the Company’s strong balance sheet in the near-term.” said Gary Luquette, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

“I am very pleased with the efforts of the Frank’s team to control costs and expand our presence in underrepresented markets in the face of an extremely difficult time for our industry. While we do not believe we are out of the cycle trough yet, we are beginning to see signs of improvement in the U.S. onshore business and stabilization in some international markets.”

“We are confident that as commodity prices improve we will be well positioned to take advantage of new opportunities to bring our best-in-class tubular running services and specialty tools to customers around the world onshore, on the shelf and in the deepwater.”

Segment Results

International Services
International Services revenue from external sales was $51.0 million in the third quarter of 2016, down 11.0% compared to the second quarter of 2016, and down 50.5% compared to the third quarter of 2015. Sequential results were driven by decreased activity in Europe and West Africa, partially offset by revenue growth in Latin America and the Middle East.

Segment net loss for the quarter was $35.0 million and adjusted EBITDA was $4.5 million, or 8.9% of revenue, up from a loss of $4.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 and down 88.4% compared to the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA was higher despite lower revenues due to lower bad debt expense and realized cost reductions initiated in previous quarters.

U.S. Services
U.S. Services revenue from external sales was $34.1 million in the third quarter of 2016, down 8.2% compared to the second quarter of 2016, and down 54.2% compared to the third quarter of 2015.

For the third quarter, onshore revenue within the U.S. Services segment of $8.6 million was up 2.6% compared to the second quarter of 2016, and down 60.6% compared to the third quarter of 2015. Sequential revenue increases were driven by increased rig activity and modest pricing improvement partially offset by a decrease in addressable market share.

Offshore revenue within the U.S. Services segment of $25.5 million for the third quarter was down 11.4% compared to the second quarter of 2016, and down 51.4% compared to the third quarter of 2015. Revenue declined sequentially due to a reduction in rig activity and several pricing adjustments.

Segment net loss for the quarter was $6.4 million and adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $7.9 million compared to a loss of $11.3 million in the second quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA increased as a result of lower corporate expenses and a $2 million insurance refund benefit.

Tubular Sales
Tubular Sales revenue from external sales was $20.0 million in the third quarter of 2016, down 24.4% compared to the second quarter of 2016, and down 67.9% compared to the third quarter of 2015. Revenue decreased sequentially due to fewer deliveries to customers in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico during the quarter.

Segment net loss for the quarter was $0.8 million and adjusted EBITDA was $0.2 million, or 0.7% of revenue, was down $1.4 million compared to the second quarter of 2016, and down 99.0% compared to the third quarter of 2015. Sequential decline in EBITDA margin was due to an increase in manufacturing expenses from higher material costs, partially offset by favorable mix and inventory reserve adjustments.

Acquisition of Blackhawk Specialty Tools

On November 1, 2016, Frank’s completed its acquisition of Blackhawk Group Holdings, Inc., the ultimate parent company of Blackhawk Specialty Tools LLC, a leading provider of well construction and well intervention services and products. The acquisition was funded with approximately $150.4 million of cash on hand and the issuance of approximately 12.8 million shares of Frank’s common stock, for total consideration of approximately $294.4 million (based on Frank’s closing share price on October 31, 2016 of $11.25 and including the working capital adjustment). Costs of roughly $15 million associated with the close of transaction are expected to realized be in the fourth quarter. These costs include $9 million related to a non-compete agreement settlement.

Capital Expenditures and Balance Sheet

Capital expenditures were $11.4 million for the third quarter of 2016 and $29.8 million for the first nine months of 2016. Full year 2016 capital expenditures are expected to be $50 million, down from a previously stated $60 million. The Company’s consolidated cash balance at September 30, 2016, was $529.9 million compared to $602.4 million at December 31, 2015. At September 30, 2016 there was $96.2 million of unused capacity under the Company’s $100.0 million credit facility, net of outstanding letters of credit.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, forward-looking statements contained in this press release specifically include statements, estimates and projections regarding the Company’s future business strategy and prospects for growth, cash flows and liquidity, financial strategy, budget, projections and operating results, the amount, nature and timing of capital expenditures, the availability and terms of capital, the level of activity in the oil and gas industry, volatility of oil and gas prices, which have declined significantly, unique risks associated with offshore operations, political, economic and regulatory uncertainties in international operations, the ability to develop new technologies and products, the ability to protect intellectual property rights, the ability to employ and retain skilled and qualified workers, the level of competition in the Company’s industry and other guidance. These statements are based on certain assumptions made by the Company based on management’s experience, expectations and perception of historical trends, current conditions, anticipated future developments and other factors believed to be appropriate. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance. Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in its forward-looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions, no assurance can be given that these assumptions are accurate or that any of these expectations will be achieved (in full or at all) or will prove to have been correct.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of free cash flow, Adjusted net loss, Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin, which may be used periodically by management when discussing the Company’s financial results with investors and analysts. The accompanying schedules of this press release provide a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Free cash flow, Adjusted net loss, Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin are presented because management believes these metrics provide additional information relative to the performance of the Company’s business. These metrics are commonly employed by financial analysts and investors to evaluate the operating and financial performance of the Company from period to period and to compare it with the performance of other publicly traded companies within the industry. You should not consider free cash flow, Adjusted net loss, Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Because free cash flow, Adjusted net loss, Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin may be defined differently by other companies in the Company’s industry, the Company’s presentation of free cash flow, Adjusted net loss, Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as income from continuing operations before net interest income or expense, depreciation and amortization, income tax benefit or expense, asset impairments, gain or loss on sale of assets, foreign currency gain or loss, equity-based compensation expense, unrealized and realized gains or losses and other non-cash adjustments and unusual charges. The Company defines Adjusted net loss as net loss excluding severance and other charges. The Company uses free cash flow and Adjusted EBITDA to assess its financial performance because it allows the Company to compare its operating performance on a consistent basis across periods by removing the effects of its capital structure (such as varying levels of interest expense), asset base (such as depreciation and amortization) and items outside the control of the Company’s management team (such as income tax rates). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenue.

Please see the accompanying financial tables for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures.
