Civeo Corporation Comments on Recent Macroeconomic Developments and Issues Fourth Quarter 2016 Preliminary Financial Information and 2017 Financial Guidance

HOUSTON, Jan. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Civeo Corporation (NYSE:CVEO) announced today preliminary estimated financial information for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, its assessment of recent macroeconomic developments affecting its business and its financial outlook for the year ending December 31, 2017.

“In recent months, several catalysts have emerged which should have favorable intermediate to long-term implications for Civeo’s core end markets. The prices of both crude oil and metallurgical coal have recovered meaningfully from recent cyclical lows. In the short term, this commodity price recovery creates better financial flexibility for our upstream oil and gas and metals and mining customers. Over the longer term, we believe that the rebound in commodity prices, coupled with other recent macroeconomic developments, may support a more constructive outlook for our business,” said Bradley Dodson, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“In Canada, the recent regulatory approval of major pipeline projects has the potential to both drive incremental demand for mobile accommodations assets and improve take-away capacity for Canadian oil sands producers over the longer term. Additionally, we believe that the Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S., if constructed, would be a positive catalyst for Canadian oil sands producers, as it would bolster confidence in future take-away capacity from the region to Gulf Coast refiners. As such, we are optimistic given the recent support for this pipeline project from the Trump administration. Both our U.S. and Australian divisions are also witnessing positive underlying momentum. In the U.S., recovery in oil prices has triggered a resurgence in U.S. drilling and completion activity. In Australia, the contract settlement price for met coal has risen from a low of $81 per tonne in early 2016 to a recent contract settlement price of $285 per tonne in the first quarter of 2017. While spot met coal prices have fallen below $200 per tonne in 2017, this remains at a level which we expect to drive increased activity over the longer term.”

Mr. Dodson concluded, “Taken together, these macroeconomic developments are positive for our customers and for the underlying demand for our services. However, in the short term, given the duration and severity of the recent downturn, we do not believe these developments will have a material impact on Civeo’s financial results in 2017. Accordingly, we will continue to focus on enhancing the quality of our operations, delivering against our expectations, maintaining financial vigilance and executing our long-term growth initiatives as market conditions improve.”

financial information, we estimate the following range of financial information:
QUARTER ENDED
DECEMBER 31, 2016
EBITDA Range (1) $ 16.0 $ 18.0
(1) The term EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.
EBITDA is not a measure 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 may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other
companies. The Company has included EBITDA as supplemental disclosures because its management
believes that EBITDA provides useful information regarding the Company's 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 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.
The following table sets forth a reconciliation of estimated EBITDA to estimated loss before income
taxes, which is the most directly comparable measure of financial performance calculated under
generally accepted accounting principles based upon the preliminary estimated financial information
