Newpark Resources Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE: NR) today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2017. Total revenues for the third quarter of 2017 were $201.7 million compared to $183.0 million in the second quarter of 2017 and $104.6 million in the third quarter of 2016. Net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $2.7 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017, and a net loss of $13.5 million, or $0.16 per share, in the third quarter of 2016. Third quarter 2016 results included a total of $2.6 million of charges associated with asset demobilization and wind-down of our operations in Uruguay.

Paul Howes, Newpark's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We're very pleased to report another solid quarter of revenue growth across both segments. In Fluids, revenue gains were once again led by our North American operations. Despite the modest headwind created by Hurricane Harvey, U.S. revenues improved by 10% sequentially, outperforming the market rig count gains for the fourth consecutive quarter. The relative outperformance in the quarter is largely attributable to the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, where projects with two customers contributed $4 million of revenue to the third quarter. Canadian revenues also rebounded in the third quarter, reflecting the typical seasonal pattern following Spring break-up, resulting in a 16% sequential increase in total North American fluids revenue. Internationally, fluids revenues remained relatively stable, as improvements in customer activity in Romania was partially offset by declines in Kuwait, Algeria, and Albania largely related to project timing. The segment operating margin improved modestly, with the incremental benefit of the stronger revenues being partially offset by the unfavorable impact of price concessions on an NOC customer contract as well as a modestly softer product mix in the U.S.

"The Mats business posted another strong quarter, which continues to reflect the benefits of our diversification strategy. Despite the anticipated reduction in rental activity following the completion of a few large scale utility transmission and distribution projects in the second quarter, segment revenues improved in the third quarter, led by $13 million of mat sales," added Howes. "And while the rental activity into the utilities sector declined, this was partially offset by an increase in rental activity for pipeline customers."

2017 Convertible Notes Settlement

In advance of the October 1, 2017 maturity of convertible notes, the Company placed an additional $54.8 million of cash into an escrow account in the third quarter of 2017, increasing the total balance in escrow (reported within prepaid expenses and other current assets) to $84.9 million as of September 30, 2017. These funds were used for the full satisfaction of the 2017 Convertible Notes following the end of the third quarter.

Segment Results

The Fluids Systems segment generated revenues of $166.7 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $150.6 million in the second quarter of 2017 and $89.1 million in the third quarter of 2016. Segment operating income was $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $5.9 million of income in the second quarter of 2017 and a $9.0 million loss in the third quarter of 2016. Segment results for the third quarter of 2016 included $2.6 million of charges associated with asset demobilization and wind-down of our operations in Uruguay following the customer decision to discontinue offshore exploration efforts in the country.

The Mats and Integrated Services segment generated revenues of $34.9 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $32.4 million in the second quarter of 2017 and $15.5 million in the third quarter of 2016. Segment operating income was $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $11.4 million in the second quarter of 2017, and $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP Reconciliations
(Unaudited)

To help understand the Company's financial performance, the Company has supplemented its financial results that it provides in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") with non-GAAP financial measures. Such financial measures include earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), EBITDA Margin, Net Debt and the Ratio of Net Debt to Capital.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors, securities analysts and other parties in the evaluation of our performance and/or that of other companies in our industry. In addition, management uses these measures to evaluate operating performance, and our incentive compensation plan measures performance based on our consolidated EBITDA, along with other factors. The methods we use to produce these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from methods used by other companies. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
