Oil States Announces Third Quarter Earnings and New Record Offshore Products Backlog

HOUSTON, Oct. 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oil States International, Inc. (NYSE:OIS) reported net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 of $103.8 million, or $1.87 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable $7.5 million pre-tax, or $0.10 per diluted share after-tax, non-cash accrual adjustment in its tubular services segment. These results compare to net income of $91.9 million, or $1.67 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.

The Company generated revenues of $1.1 billion and EBITDA of $216.0 million during the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the non-recurring adjustment in tubular services totaling $7.5 million, revenues and EBITDA in the third quarter of 2012 were $1.1 billion and $223.5 million, respectively, compared to revenues of $902.6 million and EBITDA of $191.9 million in the third quarter of 2011 (EBITDA(A) is defined as net income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization). Excluding the non-recurring adjustment, consolidated operating income and EBITDA increased by 12% and 16% year-over-year, respectively, due to organic growth initiatives in the accommodations segment, increased sales of deepwater capital equipment and growth in its well site services and tubular services segments despite softening U.S. rig counts.

"Consolidated third quarter 2012 results reflected top-line growth across all of our business segments on a year-over-year basis," commented Cindy B. Taylor, Oil States' President and Chief Executive Officer.

"Occupancy levels in our major Canadian lodges and Australian villages were near full capacity during the third quarter of 2012, affording us higher than anticipated RevPAR for the quarter. Given the significant number of lodge and village rooms that are contracted on a multi-year, take-or-pay basis, we have substantial revenue and profit visibility for the next couple of years, which helps mitigate the occupancy risk associated with near term commodity price volatility. Backlog in our offshore products segment reached a new record level of $597 million at September 30, 2012. The outlook for deepwater capital equipment remains robust and bidding and quoting activity is very strong. Well site services results increased sequentially despite the 4% quarter-over-quarter decrease in the U.S. land rig count. Pricing for our proprietary rental equipment and utilization of our land drilling rig fleet was strong in the third quarter. We remain focused on managing our costs and personnel throughout the U.S. shale basins as customer activity continues to be impacted by adjusting capital spending budgets and commodity prices."

The Company invested $131.8 million in capital expenditures during the third quarter of 2012 primarily related to the ongoing expansion of its accommodations business, the addition of proprietary rental equipment deployed to service the active U.S. shale plays and facility and equipment investments in its offshore products segment. The Company currently expects to spend approximately $500 million to $550 million in capital expenditures during 2012 which is down from our prior estimate of $600 to $700 million due to delayed receipt of equipment and slower investments in land, buildings and accommodations facilities. Spending on these investments is expected to shift into the first half of 2013. The Company recognized an effective tax rate of 26.4% in the third quarter of 2012 compared with 28.4% in the third quarter of 2011. The lower effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2012 was primarily due to higher foreign earnings as a percentage of total earnings. Our foreign earnings are taxed at a lower rate than our domestic earnings.

For the first nine months of 2012, the Company reported revenues of $3.3 billion, EBITDA of $700.4 million and net income of $350.1 million, or $6.32 per diluted share. The year-to-date results for 2012 included (i) a pre-tax benefit of $17.9 million, or $0.23 per diluted share after-tax, related to a favorable contract settlement in its U.S. accommodations business recognized in the first quarter of 2012 and (ii) a pre-tax gain of $2.5 million, or $0.03 per diluted share after-tax, related to insurance proceeds received during the second quarter for the land drilling rig that was lost in a fire. For the first nine months of 2011, the Company reported revenues of $2.5 billion, EBITDA of $492.4 million and $228.2 million of net income, or $4.15 per diluted share.

BUSINESS SEGMENT RESULTS

(Unless otherwise noted, the following discussion compares the quarterly results from the third quarter of 2012 to the results from the third quarter of 2011.)

Accommodations

Accommodations generated revenues of $273.3 million and EBITDA of $122.8 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared to revenues and EBITDA of $227.8 million and $99.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. Revenues increased 20% and EBITDA increased 23% year-over-year due to a 17% year-over-year increase in average available rooms and a 14% year-over-year increase in RevPAR related to higher occupancy levels at the Company's major lodges and villages. EBITDA margins increased 1% to 45% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the third quarter of 2011.

Well Site Services

Well site services generated revenues of $181.7 million and EBITDA of $61.1 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to revenues and EBITDA of $172.8 million and $56.4 million, respectively, in the third quarter of 2011. Revenues increased 5% and EBITDA increased 8% year-over-year primarily due to improved pricing for both rental tools and drilling. EBITDA margins for the segment increased slightly to 34% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 33% in the third quarter of 2011.

Rental tools revenue per ticket increased 4% year-over-year due to the deployment of a favorable mix of the Company's proprietary tools, particularly in the Gulf Coast, Bakken, and Eagle Ford. Activity in the third quarter of 2012, as measured by the number of service tickets issued, decreased 1% year-over-year due to reduced work available in the Haynesville, Barnett and Marcellus regions.

Offshore Products

Offshore products generated revenues and EBITDA of $189.5 million and $31.8 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to revenues and EBITDA of $139.5 million and $27.9 million in the third quarter of 2011. Revenues and EBITDA increased 36% and 14% year-over-year, respectively, primarily due to a revenue mix favoring our production equipment and connector products along with contributions from the Piper Valve business which was acquired in July 2012. EBITDA margins decreased to 17% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 20% in the third quarter of 2011 largely due to a $2.9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share after-tax, unfavorable margin adjustment booked on a subsea pipeline project in Brazil which was largely completed during 2010 and 2011. Excluding this unfavorable adjustment, EBITDA margins for the third quarter of 2012 would have been 18%. Backlog reached an all-time record level, totaling $597 million at September 30, 2012. This record backlog level compares to $562 million reported at June 30, 2012 and $514 million reported at September 30, 2011. Major backlog additions during the quarter included subsea pipeline and connector product orders along with several crane orders.

Tubular Services

Tubular services generated revenues of $436.2 million and EBITDA of $11.5 million during the third quarter of 2012 compared to revenues and EBITDA of $362.5 million and $18.8 million, respectively, in the third quarter of 2011. Revenues improved 20% primarily due to the Company's 17% year-over-year increase in OCTG shipments resulting from increased activity in the Gulf of Mexico coupled with certain market share gains onshore. Despite higher revenue and shipments, EBITDA decreased by 39% year-over-year primarily due to an unfavorable $7.5 million non-cash accrual adjustment for customer credits and returned inventory caused by ERP system design and implementation issues. As a result, gross margin as a percent of revenues decreased to 3.6% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 6.3% reported in the third quarter of 2011. Excluding this non-cash adjustment recorded during the quarter, gross margin as a percent of revenues would have been 5.3% and 5.5%, respectively, during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. The Company ended the quarter with $523.7 million of OCTG inventories, up $47.1 million from June 30, 2012. The increase in inventories was primarily in support of customer orders for deepwater OCTG.

(A) The term EBITDA consists of net income 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 a supplemental disclosure because its management believes that 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 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 EBITDA to net income, which is the most directly comparable measure of financial performance calculated under generally accepted accounting principles.
