TULSA, Okla., Nov. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Helmerich & Payne, Inc. (NYSE:HP) reported a net loss of $23 million or $(0.21) per diluted share from operating revenues of $532 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. The net loss per diluted share includes $(0.07) of after-tax losses comprised of select items(3). Net cash provided by operating activities was $121 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.

For the fiscal year 2017, the Company reported a net loss of $128 million or $(1.20) per diluted share from operating revenues of $1.8 billion. The net loss per diluted share includes $0.07 of after-tax income comprised of select items(3).

President and CEO John Lindsay commented, “Fiscal 2017 witnessed the largest ramp up of U.S. land rig activity in the Company’s history, which more than doubled even in the face of oil price uncertainty and volatility. We began the year with 95 rigs running in U.S. land and closed the year with 197 rigs after reactivating 102 FlexRigs while upgrading 91 of those to super-spec capacity. Our Family of Solutions with over 2000 rig years of FlexRig experience allows us to provide the right rig for the customer and enabled us to grow U.S. land market share to 20%.

“The fourth fiscal quarter headlines were dominated by oil price uncertainty which remained range-bound in the mid $40s and set expectations for a substantial rig count reduction for the balance of 2017. Even with that cautious outlook, H&P was able to grow its rig count and leading edge pricing due to the value proposition we provide to customers. We have also seen some improvement in our international markets with the rig count significantly increasing during the quarter.

“Looking forward, the increases in oil prices during the past few weeks could provide opportunities for rig count growth and higher dayrates, improving our key financial metrics. H&P continues to be uniquely positioned to grow its active rig count without building new rigs whether that be under improved commodity pricing or the range-bound pricing we experienced most of this past year. The industry’s super-spec fleet in the U.S. has approximately 400 rigs today and the fleet appears close to being fully utilized. With nearly full utilization and bolstered by continued demand by E&Ps for rigs capable of effectively drilling more complex horizontal wells with longer laterals, we believe the rig replacement cycle continues. Unlike our peers, H&P has the capability to upgrade over 100 more existing FlexRigs to super-spec capacity, about a third of which are already active. Clearly, demand will drive those decisions and we are optimistic that customers will be willing to sponsor the investment to upgrade rigs to super-spec capacity through higher dayrates and term contracts. In addition to having the right rig assets, we have the people, systems and technology to support our value proposition to the customer.”

Operating Segment Results for the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2017

U.S. Land Operations:

Segment operating loss narrowed by $4 million (48%) sequentially. The favorable change was primarily attributable to an increase in quarterly revenue days and a higher average rig margin per day. This quarterly operational improvement was offset by non-cash charges of $15.4 million for abandonments of used drilling rig components related to rig upgrades, compared to similar non-cash charges of $7.7 million during the third fiscal quarter.

The number of quarterly revenue days increased sequentially by approximately 6%. Adjusted average rig revenue per day slightly increased to $21,684(4). The average rig expense per day decreased sequentially by $351 to $13,905; the decrease in the average was mostly attributable to a decline in upfront rig start-up expenses as fewer rigs were reactivated this quarter as compared to the prior quarter. The corresponding adjusted average rig margin per day increased sequentially by $359 to $7,779(4).

Offshore Operations:

Segment operating income decreased 22% sequentially primarily as a result of adjustments to self-insurance reserve charges related to management contracts during the fourth fiscal quarter. Management contracts on customer-owned platform rigs contributed approximately $2.5 million to the segment’s operating income, compared to approximately $4.0 million during the prior quarter. The number of quarterly revenue days on H&P-owned platform rigs decreased sequentially by approximately 10%, and the average rig margin per day increased sequentially by $585 to $12,088.

International Land Operations:

The segment had an operating loss this quarter as compared to operating income during the previous quarter. The $7 million sequential decline was primarily attributable to the absence of retroactive revenues included in the previous quarter, which favorably impacted the third fiscal quarter by approximately $10.7 million due to the effect of a customer’s withdrawal of an early termination notice. Excluding the impact of the retroactive adjustments during the third fiscal quarter, the number of quarterly revenue days increased sequentially by 9%(5) to 1,291, and the adjusted average rig margin per day increased sequentially by $3,408 to $12,386 (5). The sequential increase in average rig margin per day is primarily attributable to better than expected performance and one-time adjustments.

Operational Outlook for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2018

U.S. Land Operations:

  • Quarterly revenue days expected to increase by approximately 4% to 5% sequentially
  • Average rig revenue per day expected to be roughly $21,700 (excluding any impact from early termination revenue)
  • Average rig expense per day expected to be roughly $14,100

Offshore Operations:

  • Quarterly revenue days expected to decrease by approximately 6% sequentially
  • Average rig margin per day expected to be approximately $13,000
  • Management contracts expected to generate $4 to $5 million in operating income

International Land Operations:

  • Adjusted quarterly revenue days expected to increase by approximately 20% sequentially
  • Average rig margin per day expected to be roughly $8,000

Other Estimates for Fiscal 2018

  • Today, the outlook for fiscal 2018 capital expenditures ranges from $250 to $300 million
  • Depreciation is expected to decrease by about 4% to approximately $560 million
  • General and administrative expenses are expected to increase by about 9% to approximately $165 million

Other Highlights

  • H&P’s spot pricing in the U.S. Land market continued to increase (approximately 5%) from the date of the third quarter results announcement (July 27, 2017) to November 16, 2017.
  • Since July 27, 2017, 21 AC drive FlexRigs with 1,500 hp drawworks and 750,000 lbs. hookload ratings were upgraded to include both a 7,500 psi mud circulating system and multiple-well pad capability, resulting in 161 rigs in our fleet today with rig specifications in highest demand(2).
  • H&P added 37 new U.S. Land customers during fiscal 2017.
  • Recently, FlexRig 531, working for an operator in the Utica Shale, drilled a total measured depth well of approximately 28,775 feet with an extended reach lateral measuring approximately 20,800 feet. This was completed in approximately 13 days (from spud to release).
  • On September 6, 2017, Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.70 per share on the Company’s common stock payable December 1, 2017 (as filed on Form 8‑K at the time of the declaration).

Segment operating income for all segments is a non-GAAP financial measure of the Company’s performance, as it excludes general and administrative expenses, corporate depreciation, income from asset sales and other corporate income and expense. The Company considers segment operating income to be an important supplemental measure of operating performance for presenting trends in the Company’s core businesses. This measure is used by the Company to facilitate period-to-period comparisons in operating performance of the Company’s reportable segments in the aggregate by eliminating items that affect comparability between periods. The Company believes that segment operating income is useful to investors because it provides a means to evaluate the operating performance of the segments and the Company on an ongoing basis using criteria that are used by our internal decision makers. Additionally, it highlights operating trends and aids analytical comparisons. However, segment operating income has limitations and should not be used as an alternative to operating income or loss, a performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP, as it excludes certain costs that may affect the Company’s operating performance in future periods.

The following table reconciles operating income per the information above to loss from continuing operations before income taxes as reported on the Consolidated Statements of Operations (in thousands).
