Share:

HOUSTON, Aug. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National Energy Services Reunited Corp. ("NESR") (NASDAQ:NESR) (NASDAQ:NESRW), a national, industry-leading provider of integrated energy services in the Middle East and North Africa ("MENA") region, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Operating and Financial Highlights

  Successfully completed the business combination with National Petroleum Services ("NPS") and Gulf Energy Services ("GES") on June 6, 2018.
     
  As described below, the reporting is in a Predecessor/Successor format whereby NPS standalone is the Predecessor for periods prior to the completion of the business combination transaction and NESR, including NPS and GES, is the Successor for post-transaction periods.
     
  Revenue growth particularly strong for Predecessor (NPS) in the second quarter of 2018, represented through sequential growth of 21% over the first quarter of 2018, 36% over the same period in 2017, and 38% for the year to date period ending June 30, 2018 as compared to prior year.
     
  Awarded new contracts worth $360 million in the second quarter of 2018.
     
  Year to date Successor and Predecessor period through June 30, 2018 reflects net income of $2.8 million as per U.S. GAAP, inclusive of intangible amortization and transaction costs, and Adjusted EBITDA (see reconciliation below) of $66 million for the combined entities.
     
  Integration activities are on track and are anticipated to yield significant incremental revenue synergies across all subsidiaries in the second half of 2018.

"We are excited to report earnings for the first time as a combined, fully operational oil and gas services company," said Sherif Foda, Chairman of the Board and CEO of NESR. "We combined two exceptional service companies to form the first and only listed national services provider in the MENA region. I would like to thank our employees for all of their hard work during this transition and for their passion and support as we make NESR a world-class services company."

Mr. Foda continued, "We are proud to be the largest regionally-focused OFS player, and we believe there are many opportunities to grow over the coming years due to a special set of competitive strengths. We are a comprehensive integrated service provider with unique exposure to the high-growth MENA region. Our customer base is strong and comprised of both national and international players. We have a track record of solid growth, both organically and through acquisitions and we have a motivated and proven management team that is committed to growing our business and creating shareholder value. Post combination, NESR has already signed new contracts moving us toward our vision for significant growth and presence in the region."

Predecessor/Successor Accounting Treatment

The quarterly information included in the 6-K filed today includes accounting treatment for the combination designating the NPS subsidiary as Predecessor accounting entity and a combined Successor accounting entity beginning June 7th. The one month of successor company results totaled a loss of $4.0 million which was influenced by transaction costs triggered at the time of combination as well as monthly amortization associated with our customer intangible. These two items had an impact on net income of $8.8 million. The NPS predecessor accounting period includes net income of $6.7 million through May of 2018. Due to the unique accounting treatment involved, neither the NESR parent company nor the GES results of operations for April and May 2018 are reflected in the statement of operations.

Production Services Segment Results

Production Services contributed $76.6 million to consolidated revenue for the combined 2018 Successor second quarter period and 2018 Predecessor second quarter period, an increase of $18.1 million from $58.5 million for the 2017 Predecessor second quarter. This increase was due primarily to higher coiled tubing activity in Saudi, Qatar, Iraq, and the United Arab Emirates as well as the results of combined company activity in the Successor period. See "Business Combination Accounting and Presentation of Results of Operations" section below for additional information on current reporting conventions.

Drilling and Evaluation Services Segment Results

Drilling and Evaluation Services contributed $28.5 million to consolidated revenue for the combined 2018 Successor second quarter period and 2018 Predecessor second quarter period, an increase of $18.5 million from $10.0 million for the 2017 Predecessor second quarter. Apart from the impact of the GES acquisition, this increase was primarily driven by increased well testing in Saudi and Iraq, further enhanced by an increase in logging and well testing activity in Saudi Arabia.

Net Income and Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA Results

The company had Successor period net income for the month of June totaling a loss of $4.0 million including transaction costs as a result of the combination. Predecessor net income for the first five months of the year was $6.7 million and Predecessor net income was $1.3 million for the periods of April and May pre-business combination. Net income presented includes the effect of transaction and integration costs incurred during those periods. On a combined basis, the Company had adjusted EBITDA of $65.8 million for the 2018 year to date period compared to $62.9 million for the same 2017 period. Adjustments to EBITDA include transaction and integration costs of $23 million for the 2018 year to date period.

Balance Sheet

Cash and cash equivalents were $36.9 million as of June 30, 2018 (Successor), compared to $27.5 million as of December 31, 2017 (Predecessor). The Company had $305.7 million in debt as of June 30, 2018 including a $50 million convertible loan facility with an implied conversion price of 11.244 per share. During July, a refinancing of the bridge loan facility in place on June 30, 2018 was completed and also entered into a new facility for $50 million of which $25 million has been drawn to date and the remaining $25 million is available.

About National Energy Services Reunited Corp.

NESR is one of the largest oil and gas services providers in the MENA region. NESR began as a special purpose acquisition corporation, or SPAC, focused on investing in global oil & gas services space in May 2017. In November 2017, NESR announced the acquisition of two of the most prominent oilfield services companies in the MENA region: GES and NPS. These transactions and the formation of NESR as an operating entity were completed in June 2018.

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"), a preliminary assessment was made as of the acquisition-date fair value of the purchase consideration paid by NESR to effect 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 our 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 our consolidated financial information, including the results of NPS and GES, after the Business Combination. The Successor Period is from June 7, 2018 to June 30, 2018 and the Predecessor Periods are from April 1, 2018 to June 6, 2018, for the three months ended June 30, 2017, January 1, 2018 to June 6, 2018 and for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

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 earnings release are discussions of earnings before interest, income tax and depreciation and amortization adjusted for certain non-recurring and non-core expenses ("Adjusted EBITDA"), as well a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to net income in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The Company believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA 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 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 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.
