Superior Energy Services Announces Second Quarter 2017 Results

Superior Energy Services, Inc. (the "Company") today announced a net loss from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2017 of $62.0 million, or $0.41 per share, on revenue of $470.1 million. This compares to a net loss from continuing operations of $89.7 million, or $0.59 per share for the first quarter of 2017, on revenue of $400.9 million and a net loss from continuing operations of $468.6 million, or $3.09 per share for the second quarter of 2016, on revenue of $356.3 million.

David Dunlap, President and CEO, commented, "Activity in U.S. land markets accelerated rapidly during the second quarter. Utilization of assets across most U.S. land service lines increased and service pricing also moved in a positive direction. Nowhere was this observed more distinctly than in our pressure pumping business. Customer resistance to pricing increases weakened throughout the quarter, indicating a rapidly tightening supply and demand balance. Higher activity levels resulted in pressure pumping revenue increasing 32% sequentially, with minimal equipment reactivation cost during the quarter. With most of the cost friction and reactivation inefficiencies experienced during the first quarter behind us, much of this increase in revenue fell to the bottom line, resulting in favorable incremental margins. Improving market conditions and growing customer demand has caused us to commit to rebuild our remaining idle pressure pumping equipment.

"In the Gulf of Mexico, sand control completion services work continued to increase, as did hydraulic workover and snubbing activity. The drilling rig forecast over the near-term for the Gulf of Mexico may be uninspiring, but our specialized, project oriented service lines such as completion services, hydraulic workover and our subsea intervention technology, which will be deployed in the second half of the year, all provide a level of revenue diversity that offsets rig count declines to some degree.

"Drilling activity also continued to slow in international markets during the quarter, primarily offshore West Africa, impacting our drilling related service lines. Well control activity was also lower internationally during the quarter. Offsetting these decreases was an increase in hydraulic workover and snubbing as projects commenced in several regions.

"The U.S. land business has experienced significant improvement through the first half of 2017. With customer activity, revenue and cash flows all ahead of expectations, we now expect our capital expenditures for the year to be within a range of $125 - $150 million dollars, an increase from approximately $100 million when the year began. This increase is primarily due to capital rebuild of our remaining pressure pumping horsepower."

Second Quarter 2017 Geographic Breakdown

U.S. land revenue was $317.9 million in the second quarter of 2017, a 23% increase as compared with revenue of $258.7 million in the first quarter of 2017 and a 102% increase compared to revenue of $157.1 million in the second quarter of 2016.

The press release contains, and future oral or written statements or press releases by us and our management may contain, certain forward-looking statements within the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Generally, the words "expects," "anticipates," "targets," "goals," "projects," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks" and "estimates," variations of such words and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. All statements other than statements of historical fact regarding the Company’s financial position, financial performance, liquidity, strategic alternatives, market outlook, future capital needs, capital allocation plans, business strategies and other plans and objectives of our management for future operations and activities are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by our management in light of its experience and prevailing circumstances on the date such statements are made. Such forward-looking statements, and the assumptions on which they are based, are inherently speculative and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from such statements. Such uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the cyclicality and volatility of the oil and gas industry, including changes in prevailing levels of capital expenditures, exploration, production and development activity; changes in prevailing oil and gas prices or expectations about future prices; operating hazards, including the significant possibility of accidents resulting in personal injury or death, property damage or environmental damage for which we may have limited or no insurance coverage or indemnification rights; the effect of regulatory programs (including worker health and safety laws) and environmental matters on our operations or prospects, including the risk that future changes in the regulation of hydraulic fracturing could reduce or eliminate demand for our pressure pumping services, or that future changes in climate change legislation could result in increased operating costs or reduced commodity demand globally; counter-party risks associated with reliance on key suppliers; risks associated with the uncertainty of macroeconomic and business conditions worldwide; changes in competitive and technological factors affecting our operations; credit risk associated with our customer base; the potential inability to retain key employees and skilled workers; challenges with estimating our oil and natural gas reserves and potential liabilities related to our oil and natural gas property; risk associated with potential changes of Bureau of Ocean Energy Management security and bonding requirements for offshore platforms; risks inherent in acquiring businesses; risks associated with cyber-attacks; risks associated with business growth during an industry recovery outpacing the capabilities of our infrastructure and workforce; political, legal, economic and other risks and uncertainties associated with our international operations; potential changes in tax laws, adverse positions taken by tax authorities or tax audits impacting our operating results; risks associated with our outstanding debt obligations and the potential effect of limiting our future growth and operations; our continued access to credit markets on favorable terms; and the impact that unfavorable or unusual weather conditions could have on our operations. These risks and other uncertainties related to our business are described in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Investors are cautioned that many of the assumptions on which our forward-looking statements are based are likely to change after such statements are made, including for example the market prices of oil and gas and regulations affecting oil and gas operations, which we cannot control or anticipate. Further, we may make changes to our business strategies and plans (including our capital spending and capital allocation plans) at any time and without notice, based on any changes in the above-listed factors, our assumptions or otherwise, any of which could or will affect our results. For all these reasons, actual events and results may differ materially from those anticipated, estimated, projected or implied by us in our forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update any of our forward-looking statements for any reason and, notwithstanding any changes in our assumptions, changes in our business plans, our actual experience, or other changes. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof.
