Key messages include:

  • Reached agreement with a major operator for a TETRA CS Neptune® completion fluids project for a lower tertiary development well in a proven field in the Gulf of Mexico, with the completion phase of the project anticipated in the second half of 2019.
  • Consolidated loss before taxes and before discontinued operations was $17.1 million, a $23.2 million sequential deterioration. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations of $36.3 million (14.9% of revenue) decreased sequentially by $10.3 million primarily due to lower Compression equipment sales and lower Water & Flowback Services margins (see Schedule G for reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures).
  • Water & Flowback Services income before taxes was $2.2 million, 2.8% of revenue. Adjusted EBITDA of $10.1 million declined from $15.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 due to increased transition related costs as weaker activity from smaller independents was replaced with stronger activity from large independent and major operators (see Schedule G for reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures).
  • Completion Fluids & Products income before taxes was $6.2 million, 10.0% of revenue. Adjusted EBITDA of $10.4 million compares to $13.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $6.2 million in the first quarter of 2018 (see Schedule G for reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures).
  • Compression net loss before taxes was $7.8 million. Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $25.9 million from $29.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 due to the timing of new equipment shipments and the completion of major overhauls in after-market services, both following a historically high fourth quarter (see Schedule G for reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures). Compression services revenue and gross margins increased sequentially and were significantly above the first quarter of 2018 reflecting the growth capital being deployed at higher rates, better pricing on the existing fleet and improved cost management. Overall utilization of the service fleet increased from 86.6% in the fourth quarter of 2018 to 87.2% in the first quarter of 2019.

Brady M. Murphy, TETRA's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "In the first quarter of 2019 we experienced continued improvement in Compression Services revenues and margins and reached agreement with a major operator for a TETRA CS Neptune® completion fluids project in the Gulf of Mexico, but also experienced lower margins in Water and Flowback Services in a transition quarter. The transition is related to a major revenue shift from the fourth quarter of 2018 to the first quarter of 2019 from smaller North America independent operators impacted by the oil price decline to the major operators with stronger balance sheets who maintained or increased activity through this recent cycle.  Although this is a very positive reflection on our ability to gain market share from major operators by increasing our revenues from this customer segment alone by approximately 15% over fourth quarter 2018, this revenue gain was nearly offset from the smaller operators decreasing activity. The net impact was significant as additional costs associated with de-mobilization and mobilization activity within the quarter impacted our margins. Water & Flowback Services also experienced high repair costs on lower flowback activity during the first quarter, following a three-year high in flowback activity (excluding the impact of early production facility sales) during the fourth quarter.   Also during the first quarter we increased the number of our integrated solution projects to 19, up from 16 in the prior quarter.  The customer mix for integrated solution projects reflected a similar change as our overall North America business, as projects for our large operators improved by seven, but were offset by a reduction of four from smaller operators.  We are pleased that we are now servicing five customers with multiple integrated solution projects.  Our Completion Fluids & Products business showed strong year over year growth with improved margins, driven primarily by stronger international activity.  In the U.S. this business experienced its typical weaker first quarter activity compared to the seasonally strong fourth quarter.  Overall Compression revenue decreased sequentially on lower new equipment shipments and weaker after-market services following record highs in the fourth quarter.  While the overall market was challenging in the first quarter, we saw meaningful improvement in March exit rates for the Compression and Water & Flowback Services segments. With the additional TETRA CS Neptune® completion fluids projects expected to occur in in the second half of the year, we expect improved financial performance across all segments through the balance of 2019."

"Water & Flowback Services first quarter 2019 revenue decreased 1% sequentially to $78.7 million and was up 29% from the same period last year.  We gained market share with the larger operators but at more competitive pricing in some basins.  Despite the slower completion activity in the first quarter 2019, our momentum is strong in integrating and automating our water management solutions. In the first quarter we also added two large recycling projects which should allow us to stay on these jobs for extended periods of time and more effectively utilize equipment and personnel.  We continue to see a shift towards the larger independents and majors, which will allow us to further showcase our technology differentiation and multiple offerings with a more stable revenue stream."   

"Completion Fluids & Products revenue was $61.6 million for the first quarter, a decrease of 5% from the fourth quarter of 2018 driven by seasonally weaker Gulf of Mexico sales partially offset by stronger international sales.  Our Adjusted EBITDA margins of 16.8% were 520 basis points better than the first quarter of last year but 330 basis points lower than the fourth quarter of 2018.  Our chemicals business performed above our expectations, including an early start to the seasonal Northern Europe industrial activity." 

"On our conference call last quarter, we reported that we were in advanced discussions for a TETRA CS Neptune® completion fluids Gulf of Mexico project scheduled for this year.  We have reached agreement with a major operator for a lower tertiary development project in a field with existing production and where other wells in the same field have pressures that required a higher density completion fluid.  This well is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2019.  However, until the well is completed and the formation pressures are determined, we will not be able to confirm TETRA CS Neptune® completion fluids will be required.  If this project is completed as anticipated, the required fluids are expected to be of similar volumes as the prior Gulf of Mexico TETRA CS Neptune® completion fluid projects.  Additionally, we continue to build and advance the number of opportunities for TETRA CS Neptune® completion fluid projects through advanced discussions directly with operators and through our relationship with Halliburton.  We continue to see opportunities for other TETRA CS Neptune® projects this year, although timing on these complex projects is always difficult to predict." 

"First quarter 2019 Compression revenue decreased 25% sequentially to $103.5 million and was 21% above the first quarter of last year.  Compression services gross margins were 48.2%, up 110 basis points from the fourth quarter excluding the impact of a tax contingency of $2.1 million in the fourth quarter of last year (see Schedule K for reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure).  New equipment orders of $11 million were received in the first quarter.  New equipment sales backlog was $94 million at the end of the March 31, 2019, that is all expected to be delivered by year-end 2019.  Compression loss before taxes for the first quarter was $7.8 million compared to a $3.3 million loss for the fourth quarter of 2018.  Adjusted EBITDA was $25.9 million in the first quarter compared to $29.2 million in the fourth quarter (see Schedule G for reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures).  The overall fundamentals for the Compression business are extremely strong, with the demand for high horsepower equipment not showing any signs of slowing down.  As of March 31, 2019 total active operating horsepower was 1,017,452, exceeding 1.0 million deployed horsepower for the first time in CSI Compressco's history."

Free Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Consolidated net cash from operating activities for the first quarter of 2019 was $7.4 million.  TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations in the first quarter was a use of $34.9 million and compares to a use of cash of $29.9 million in first quarter of 2018 (see Schedules I and J for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures).  We have historically consumed cash in the first half of the year and have generated cash in the second half of the year, reflecting the seasonality of the business.  Consolidated net debt was $809 million, while TETRA only net debt was $192 million (see Schedule H for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures).  At the end of the first quarter of 2019, TETRA only non-restricted cash was $20 million.  

Special items

Special items, including Discontinued Operations, incurred in the first quarter, as detailed on Schedule F, include the following:

  • $1.2 million non-cash expense for the fair value adjustment of CSI Compressco's Series A Convertible Preferred Units
  • $0.4 million expense for cash redemption of CSI Compressco's Series A Convertible Preferred Units
  • $0.4 million non-cash expense for TETRA stock warrant fair value adjustment
  • $0.4 million non-cash income for a fair value adjustment of the SwiftWater earn-out obligation
  • $0.7 million for other charges

Additionally, a normalized tax rate of 21% is reflected in Adjusted Net Income, as shown on Schedule F.

Schedule E: Statement Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, this press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures for the Company: net debt, adjusted consolidated and segment income (loss) before taxes and special charges, adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share before discontinued operations, consolidated and segment adjusted EBITDA; and TETRA only adjusted free cash flow and TETRA only free cash flow from continuing operations and segment adjusted EBITDA margins. The following schedules provide reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, as more fully discussed in the Company's financial statements and filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Management believes that the exclusion of the special charges from the historical results of operations enables management to evaluate more effectively the Company's operations over the prior periods and to identify operating trends that could be obscured by the excluded items.

Adjusted income (loss) before taxes (and adjusted income (loss) before taxes as a percent of revenue) is defined as the Company's (or the Segment's) income (loss) before taxes excluding certain special or other charges (or credits). Adjusted income (loss) before taxes (and adjusted income (loss) before taxes as a percent of revenue) is used by management as a supplemental financial measure to assess financial performance, without regard to charges or credits that are considered by management to be outside of its normal operations.

Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share before discontinued operations is defined as the Company's diluted earnings (loss) per share excluding certain special or other charges (or credits) and using a normalized effective income tax rate. Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share is used by management as a supplemental financial measure to assess financial performance, without regard to charges or credits that are considered by management to be outside of its normal operations.

Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations (and Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations as a percent of revenue) is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, impairments and certain non-cash charges and non-recurring adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations (and Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations as a percent of revenue) is used by management as a supplemental financial measure to assess the financial performance of the Company's assets, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis and to assess the Company's ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures.

TETRA only adjusted free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that the Company defines as cash from TETRA's operations, excluding cash settlements of Maritech AROs, less capital expenditures net of sales proceeds and cost of equipment sold, and including cash distributions to TETRA from CSI Compressco LP. TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations is defined as TETRA only adjusted free cash flow less discontinued operations EBITDA and discontinued operations capital expenditures. Management uses this supplemental financial measure to:

  • assess the Company's ability to retire debt;
  • evaluate the capacity of the Company to further invest and grow; and
  • to measure the performance of the Company as compared to its peer group.

TETRA only adjusted free cash flow and TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations do not necessarily imply residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures, as they exclude cash requirements for debt service or other non-discretionary expenditures that are not deducted.

TETRA net debt is defined as the sum of the carrying value of long-term and short-term debt on its consolidated balance sheet, less cash, excluding restricted cash on the consolidated balance sheet and excluding the debt and cash of CSI Compressco LP. Management views TETRA net debt as a measure of TETRA's ability to reduce debt, add to cash balances, pay dividends, repurchase stock, and fund investing and financing activities.
