Parker Drilling Reports 2018 Second Quarter Results

HOUSTON, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Drilling Company (NYSE: PKD) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018, including a reported net loss of $23.8 million on revenues of $118.6 million. This equates to a loss of $2.56 per common share taking into account the 1-for-15 reverse stock split effective July 27, 2018, or a loss of $0.17 per common share on a pre-split basis.

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $18.7 million.

Gary Rich, the Company's Chairman, President and CEO, stated, "Our second quarter results improved noticeably from the prior quarter, driven primarily by increased activity in our Rental Tools Services business. During the second quarter, our U.S. Rental Tools segment grew at a higher rate than the U.S. rig count, and we are very pleased with the contributions this segment continues to provide. Additionally, our International Rentals segment posted improved revenues and margins as we continue to see stronger demand for tubular running services in many of our markets.

"In our Drilling Services business, our U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling segment results also improved in the second quarter driven by higher utilization. The International and Alaska Drilling segment reactivated two rigs during the quarter, one in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and the other in Kazakhstan, and we are actively participating in numerous tenders. While we are pleased to see improved equipment utilization and tendering activity across our Drilling Services business, pricing remains soft given high capacity available in the market."

Mr. Rich added, "We continue to be judicious with respect to capital spending, prioritizing opportunities with strong rates of return and quick payback periods. Also, to increase our financial flexibility, we are carefully evaluating options to enhance our capital structure in light of upcoming debt maturities."

Second Quarter Review

Parker Drilling's revenues for the 2018 second quarter, compared with the 2018 first quarter, increased 8.1 percent to $118.6 million from $109.7 million. Operating gross margin excluding depreciation and amortization expense (gross margin) increased 49.2 percent to $27.0 million from $18.1 million and gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 22.8 percent, compared with 16.5 percent for the 2018 first quarter.

Drilling Services

For the Company's Drilling Services business, which is comprised of the U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling and International & Alaska Drilling segments, second quarter revenues decreased 1.6 percent to $56.6 million from $57.5 million for the 2018 first quarter. Gross margin increased 80.0 percent to $3.6 million from $2.0 million, and gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 6.4 percent, compared with 3.5 percent for the prior period. Contracted backlog was approximately $215.5 million at the end of the second quarter, compared to $246.0 million at the end of the first quarter.

U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling

U.S. (Lower 48) Drilling segment revenues increased 135.7 percent to $3.3 million from $1.4 million for the 2018 first quarter. Gross margin increased 48.1 percent to a $1.4 million loss, compared to the gross margin loss of $2.7 million in the first quarter. Improvements in revenues and gross margin were primarily due to increased utilization in the second quarter.

International & Alaska Drilling

International & Alaska Drilling segment revenues decreased 5.0 percent to $53.3 million from $56.1 million for the 2018 first quarter. However, gross margin increased 6.4 percent to $5.0 million from first quarter gross margin of $4.7 million. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to lower reimbursable revenues from our operations on Sakhalin Island, Russia. Excluding reimbursables, which have a minimal impact on margins, segment revenues were down 2.6 percent from the first quarter. Gross margin was positively impacted by lower operating expenses in Sakhalin, partially offset by higher operating expense in Kurdistan associated with a rig reactivation.

Rental Tools Services

For the Company's Rental Tools Services business, which is comprised of the U.S. Rental Tools and International Rental Tools segments, second quarter revenues increased 18.8 percent to $62.0 million from $52.2 million for the first quarter. Gross margin increased 44.4 percent to $23.4 million from $16.2 million, and gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 37.7 percent compared with 31.0 percent for the prior period.

U.S. Rental Tools

U.S. Rental Tools segment revenues increased 21.3 percent to $42.1 million, from $34.7 million for the 2018 first quarter. Gross margin increased 44.3 percent to $22.8 million from $15.8 million for the 2018 first quarter. The increase in revenues was primarily due to strong activity and volume in U.S. land. Gross margin increased as a result of incremental revenues, combined with lower operating costs.

International Rental Tools

International Rental Tools segment revenues increased 13.7 percent to $19.9 million from $17.5 million for the prior quarter. Gross margin increased 50.0 percent to $0.6 million from $0.4 million for the 2018 first quarter. Revenue and gross margin improvements resulted predominately from the continued demand for our tubular running services.

Consolidated

General and Administrative expenses were $8.3 million for the 2018 second quarter, up from $6.2 million for the 2018 first quarter. The increase was largely due to professional fees related to ongoing capital structure analysis during the quarter. Total liquidity at the end of the quarter was $167.0 million, consisting of $114.5 million in cash and cash equivalents and $52.5 million available under our revolving credit facility.

Capital expenditures in the second quarter were $23.6 million. Year to date through June 30, 2018, capital expenditures were $32.5 million, with 97.3 percent dedicated to our Rental Tools Services business.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors and others to evaluate and compare our core operating results from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure (interest expense from our outstanding debt), asset base (depreciation and amortization), remeasurement of foreign currency transactions, tax consequences, impairment and other special items. Special items include items impacting operating expenses that management believes detract from an understanding of normal operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance and period to period comparisons. Our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure of another company because other entities may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to operating income or loss, net income or loss, cash flows provided by or used in operating, investing and financing activities, or other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP.

For the three months ended December 31, 2017, special items include a $3.0 million write-off of inventory associated with select international drilling assets. This item is recorded in operating expenses in the Consolidated Statement Of Operations.
