Helmerich & Payne, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results

H&P’s U.S. Land Operations contracted rig count increased by 41 rigs from December 31, 2016 to March 31, 2017 and by 73 rigs from September 30, 2016 to March 31, 2017, and today stands at 177 rigs

H&P’s U.S. Land market share increased significantly by approximately 2% from 17% to 19% during the three months of the quarter

H&P’s spot pricing in the U.S. Land market continued to increase (approximately 9%) from the date of the first quarter results announcement (January 26, 2017) to April 27, 2017

Helmerich & Payne, Inc. (HP) reported a net loss of $49 million or $(0.45) per diluted share from operating revenues of $405 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017. The net loss per diluted share includes $0.02 of after-tax income comprised of select items. Net cash provided by operating activities was $76 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017.

President and CEO John Lindsay commented, "We experienced continued activity and spot pricing improvement in the U.S. Land market during our second fiscal quarter and H&P once again led the industry in AC drive rig reactivations and horizontal market share capture. The driving forces behind this success are our people, our continuing investment in technology and our integrated business model. Our ability to grow is enabled by promoting and hiring the best people, and delivering industry leading performance. FlexRig(R) technology supported by H&P’s integrated model has over 1900 rig years of experience and is the preferred AC drive rig offering in the marketplace. H&P is uniquely positioned with a fleet of FlexRigs that provide a Family of Solutions(TM) for our customers, and the right rig for their project. Our uniform fleet size and scale is unmatched in the U.S. land AC drive segment which provides H&P an opportunity for additional market share capture. H&P’s experience and expertise within an integrated model of designing, building, learning and upgrading the FlexRig fleet allow us to meet market needs in highest demand and provide the best value for customers. We can upgrade these higher specification FlexRigs in a very capital-efficient way and meet today’s demand without the need to invest in new rigs to meet customer requirements. We have 122 super-spec capable rigs in the U.S. land market today and another 50 rigs that are active that can also be upgraded. In addition, we have approximately 100 idle FlexRigs that are capable of being upgraded to drill the more challenging horizontal wells, representing about two-thirds of the number of idle high-spec AC drive rigs in the industry fleet.

"We see some signs indicating that the recovery in U.S. land continues to modestly build momentum, which should support continued improvements in both FlexRig activity and pricing. However, we expect our international land and offshore market outlook to remain weak for the foreseeable future. Our budget for capital expenditures has allowed us to remain ahead of demand. We have been able to maintain an industry leading cadence for upgrades allowing us to increase our active fleet by 89 rigs since September, including close to 60 rigs upgraded to super-spec capability. Our supply pipeline of capital spares and upgrade equipment should be sufficient for the level of demand we see going forward. We believe that the Company is positioned to successfully manage the new market dynamics. Our organizational effectiveness efforts implemented during the downturn are having a significant effect on our ability to respond to demand and add significant value for our customers. This is clearly demonstrated by the success we have enjoyed growing our U.S. land market share from 15% to 19% since the peak in 2014. We remain confident about the future for H&P because our competitive advantages remain in our people, performance, technology, reliability and uniform FlexRig fleet."

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Operating Segment Results</span>

U.S. Land Operations

Segment operating loss widened by $21 million sequentially. The change was primarily attributable to approximately $18 million in abandonment charges, as increasing activity was offset by lower margins. The abandonment charges are included with depreciation in the segment and are related to the decommissioning of used drilling equipment as a result of our ongoing rig upgrade program.

The number of quarterly revenue days increased sequentially by approximately 35%. This H&P rate of increase was greater than the overall market’s rate of increase (estimated at 27%), resulting in significant market share growth for the Company.

From the first to the second fiscal quarter of 2017, adjusted average rig revenue per day decreased by $1,690 to $22,201, as the proportion of rigs working in the spot market increased significantly quarter to quarter. The adjusted average rig expense per day increased sequentially by $548 to $15,612; the increase in the average was mostly attributable to upfront rig start-up expenses related to reactivating a large number of rigs. The corresponding adjusted average rig margin per day decreased sequentially by $2,238 to $6,589.

Offshore Operations

Segment operating income decreased 13% sequentially. The number of quarterly revenue days decreased sequentially by approximately 8%, and the average rig margin per day increased sequentially by $339 to $10,817. Additionally, management contracts on platform rigs contributed approximately $4 million to the segment’s operating income.

International Land Operations

The segment had an operating loss this quarter as compared to operating income the previous quarter. The $12 million sequential change was attributable to declines in average rig margin per day and rig revenue days, as well as the absence of early termination revenues in the most recent quarter.

Quarterly revenue days decreased sequentially by approximately 25%, and the adjusted average rig margin per day decreased sequentially by $5,192 to $3,691 during this year’s second fiscal quarter. Quarterly revenue days and adjusted average rig margin per day declined primarily as a result of the previously announced early termination notice from a customer for five rigs under long-term contracts in the segment.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Operational Outlook for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2017</span>

U.S. Land Operations:

-- Quarterly revenue days expected to increase by roughly 25% sequentially

Average rig revenue per day expected to be roughly $21,000 (excluding any impact from early termination revenue)

-- Average rig expense per day expected to be roughly $14,300

Offshore Operations:

-- Quarterly revenue days expected to decrease by approximately 10% to 15% sequentially

-- Average rig margin per day expected to be approximately $12,500

-- Management contracts expected to generate approximately $4 million in operating income

International Land Operations:

-- Quarterly revenue days expected to decrease by approximately 10% sequentially

-- Average rig margin per day expected to remain under $4,000

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Other Estimates for Fiscal 2017</span>

FY17 depreciation is now expected to be approximately $580 million. Included in this depreciation estimate are approximately $40 million of abandonment charges, about half of which has already been recognized in the first half of the fiscal year.

<span data-mce-style="text-decoration: underline;" style="text-decoration: underline;">Other Highlights</span>

The Company’s total active rig market share in U.S. Land Lower 48 grew to approximately 19% as of March 31, 2017.

Since January 26, 2017 (date of first quarter results announcements), 22 AC drive FlexRigs with 1,500 hp drawworks and 750,000 lbs. hookload ratings were upgraded to include a 7,500 psi mud circulating system and/or multiple-well pad capability, resulting in 122 rigs in our fleet today with rig specifications in highest demand.

On January 26, 2017, EnergyPoint Research announced, "Helmerich & Payne again rated first in total satisfaction among onshore contract drillers. The company also captured the top spot in performance and reliability, service and professionalism, horizontal and directional wells, high-pressure/high-temperature (HPHT) wells, safety and environmental (HSE), shale-oriented applications, Interior Texas & Mid-continent, and three additional categories."

On March 1, 2017, Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.70 per share on the Company’s common stock payable June 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 income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes as reported on the Consolidated Statements of Operations (in thousands).
