National Energy Services Reunited Corp. Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

National Energy Services Reunited Corp. Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

National Energy Services Reunited Corp. (“NESR” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NESR) (NASDAQ: NESRW) (www.NESR.com), a national, industry-leading provider of integrated energy services in the Middle East and North Africa (“MENA”) and Asia Pacific regions, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Operating and Financial Highlights

Revenue for the first quarter of 2019 is $152 million, growing 29% as compared to the prior-year quarter of $118 million.

Net income for the first quarter of 2019 is $13 million. Net income, adjusted for transaction and integration costs of the Company's recent business combination (the “Business Combination”), is $15 million. Net income more than doubled from the prior year period on a combined basis.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2019 is $41 million as compared to $31 million in the prior year period producing year-over year-growth of over 30%.

U.S. GAAP earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.15 reported for the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted for transaction and integration costs related to the Business Combination, the Company reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.17 for the first quarter of 2019.

The Company completed a refinancing of existing debt with borrowing capacity of $450 million.

Sherif Foda, Chairman of the Board and CEO of NESR said, “We have started the year with solid execution and we continue to demonstrate strong performance and high growth rates compared to the industry in pursuit of our goal to become the recognized national champion in the Middle East and North Africa regions. We have set our goals high in 2019 and are stretching into new locations and new product lines. As we expect E&P spending to continue to ramp up in future quarters, our operations teams are aggressively pursuing several opportunities and positioning the Company to gain market share and generate market leading returns. I remain extremely proud of our employees and am honored to lead this team to realization of our united vision.”

Mr. Foda continued, “During the first quarter, we continued to capture incremental market share on existing contracts and were able to lessen seasonality effects on our financials. I expect stronger spending in the region in the coming years and the broader commodity environment provides further support for increased E&P spending. We made investments in the first quarter of this year to put equipment and resources into the organization that we expect will provide meaningful and more pronounced growth in the coming quarters. Finally, this quarter we completed a milestone refinancing for the Company which will provide improved financial flexibility through better rates, financial covenant requirements that reflect the growth of the Company, and increased capacity, which gives us additional agility to respond to inorganic opportunities.”

Net Income Results

The Company had net income for the first quarter of 2019 totaling $13.2 million, which includes the impact of $1.4 million of transaction and integration costs related to the Business Combination and $4.1 million of purchase accounting related amortization costs. Adjusted for the impact of integration costs, net income for the first quarter of 2019 is $14.5 million. The income tax expense for the first quarter of 2019 was $2.9 million making the effective tax rate for the Company 18.3%.

The Company reported $0.15 of EPS for the first quarter of 2019 compared to $0.02 per share during the Predecessor first quarter period of 2018 and $0.26 per share during the fourth quarter 2018 period. Adjusted for the impact of transaction and integration costs related to the Business Combination, EPS for the first quarter of 2019 is $0.17.

See “Business Combination Accounting and Presentation of Results of Operations” section below for additional information on current reporting conventions.

EBITDA Results

The Company produced Adjusted EBITDA of $40.7 million during the first quarter of 2019.

The Company also completed a major refinancing during the first quarter of 2019. It was completed with a goal of creating additional financial flexibility, lowering the Company's costs, and aligning the covenant structure for continuous future investment in technology, capex and opportunistic targets. All prior facilities of the Company have been refinanced into a single facility with additional revolving capacity available to the Company.

Predecessor/Successor Accounting Treatment

(“GES”), is the Successor for post-transaction periods.

Conference Call Information

Business Combination Accounting and Presentation of Results of Operations

As a result of the Business Combination, NESR was determined to be the accounting acquirer and NPS was determined to be the predecessor for SEC reporting purposes. Pursuant to Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) 805, Business Combinations (“ASC 805”), the acquisition-date fair value of the purchase consideration paid by NESR to affect the Business Combination was allocated to the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values. As a result of the application of the acquisition method of accounting resulting from the Business Combination, the financial statements and certain footnote presentations separate the Company's presentations into two distinct sets of reporting periods, the periods before the consummation of the transaction (“Predecessor Periods”) and the period after that date (“Successor Period”), to indicate the application of the different basis of accounting between the periods presented. The Predecessor Periods reflect the historical financial information of NPS prior to the Business Combination, while the Successor Period reflects the Company's consolidated financial information, including the results of NPS and GES, after the Business Combination. The Successor Periods are from June 7, 2018 to December 31, 2018 and for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The Predecessor Periods are from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017 and from January 1, 2018 to June 6, 2018.

NATIONAL ENERGY SERVICES REUNITED CORP. AND SUBSIDIARIES 
RECONCILIATION OF ADJUSTED EBITDA TO NET INCOME 
(Unaudited) 
(In thousands)

The Company uses and presents certain key non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate its business and trends, measure performance, prepare financial projections and make strategic decisions. Included in this release are discussions of earnings before interest, income tax and depreciation and amortization adjusted for certain non-recurring and non-core expenses (“Adjusted EBITDA”), net income adjusted for certain non-recurring and non-core expenses (“Adjusted Net Income”) as well a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to net income in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

The Company believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income provides useful information to investors in assessing its financial performance and results of operations as the Company's board of directors, management and investors use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to compare the Company's operating performance on a consistent basis across periods by removing the effects of changes in capital structure (such as varying levels of interest expense), asset base (such as depreciation and amortization and impairment), items that do not impact the ongoing operations (Business Combination transaction expenses and related integration costs) and items outside the control of its management team. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income should not be considered as an alternative to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP financial measures have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some but not all items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. You should not consider non-GAAP measures in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of the Company's results as reported under U.S. GAAP.
