SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuverra Environmental Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:NES) ("Nuverra," the "Company," "we," "us" or "our") today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018.

SUMMARY OF QUARTERLY RESULTS

  • Second quarter revenue was $48.9 million, an increase of approximately 17.8%, or $7.4 million, when compared with revenue of $41.5 million in the second quarter of 2017. The increase is comprised of 3.3% for pricing increases and 14.5% for an increase in activities.
  • Net loss for the second quarter was $11.2 million, an improvement of $8.4 million, or approximately 42.9%, when compared with a net loss of $19.6 million in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $4.1 million, an increase of $2.0 million compared with $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin improved by 340 basis points from the second quarter of 2017.
  • Total liquidity as of June 30, 2018 was $20.2 million.

"Nuverra's second quarter financial performance reflects the on-going recovery in the energy industry, particularly our operations in the Bakken region. Revenue grew by 18% and adjusted EBITDA almost doubled when compared to our second quarter results in 2017," said Charlie Thompson, Interim Chief Executive Officer.

"We recently added a number of key executives to our management, including Robert Fox as Chief Operating Officer. With the additions to our management team and increased capital spending, we are improving Nuverra's competitive position."

SECOND QUARTER 2018 RESULTS

Second quarter revenue was $48.9 million, an increase of $7.4 million, or 17.8%, from $41.5 million in the second quarter of 2017.  Of this 17.8% increase, approximately 3.3% is attributable to pricing increases, 23.2% is a result of increases in activities, offset by (8.7)% due to the exit of the Eagle Ford Shale area.

As a result of increased activity and reliance on higher cost contract drivers, total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, were $56.9 million, a 10.3% increase compared with $51.6 million in the second quarter of 2017.  Primarily as a result of price increases, gross profit adjusted for special items improved 36.0% to $9.6 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Net loss for the second quarter was $11.2 million, an improvement of $8.4 million when compared with a net loss of $19.6 million in the second quarter of 2017.  For the second quarter of 2018, the Company reported a net loss, adjusted for special items, of $9.0 million. Special items in the second quarter primarily included legal costs related to the bankruptcy confirmation order appeal, restructuring charges related to our exit of the Eagle Ford Shale area, stock-based compensation expense, and a gain from the change in the fair value of the derivative warrant liability.  This compares with a net loss, adjusted for special items, of $15.3 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $4.1 million, an increase of $2.0 million compared with $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2017.  Second quarter adjusted EBITDA margin was 8.5%, compared with 5.1% in the second quarter of 2017.

YEAR-TO-DATE RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2018 ("YTD")

YTD revenue was $98.6 million, an increase of $17.8 million, or 22.1%, from $80.8 million for the same period in 2017.  Of this 22.1% increase, approximately 5.6% is attributable to pricing increases, 21.7% is a result of increases in activities, offset by (5.2)% due to the exit of the Eagle Ford Shale area.

YTD net loss, adjusted for special items, was $22.7 million, an improvement of $20.5 million when compared with a net loss, adjusted for special items, of $43.2 million for the same period in 2017.  YTD special items primarily included severance costs related to the departure of our former CEO and $4.5 million in long-lived asset impairment charges for assets held for sale primarily in the Southern division.  Additionally, special items included restructuring charges related to our exit of the Eagle Ford Shale area, stock-based compensation expense, and a gain from the change in fair value of the derivative warrant liability.

YTD adjusted EBITDA was $6.5 million, an increase of $5.2 million, or 386.1%, when compared with the same period in 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA margin for the 2018 YTD period was 6.6%, compared with 1.7% in 2017.

CASH FLOW AND LIQUIDITY

Net cash used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $0.5 million, while asset sales net of capital expenditures provided proceeds of $10.5 million.  Free cash flow, defined as cash from operations less net cash capital expenditures totaled $10.1 million in the second quarter of 2018, up from $(12.6) million in the second quarter of 2017.  Asset sales were related to unused or underutilized assets, the proceeds of which are expected to be reinvested in returns-driven growth projects during the remainder of 2018.

Total liquidity available for capital spending and other purposes as of June 30, 2018 was $30.8 million.  This consisted of cash and available borrowings of $20.2 million, plus an additional $10.6 million of borrowings available under our revolving facility specifically for capital expenditures.  As of June 30, 2018, total debt outstanding was $36.6 million, consisting of $13.2 million under our senior secured term loan facility, $20.6 million under our second lien term loan facility, and $2.8 million of capital leases for vehicle financings.

BASIS OF PRESENTATION

As previously disclosed, the Company emerged from chapter 11 bankruptcy on August 7, 2017, or the "Effective Date," and elected to apply fresh start accounting as of July 31, 2017 to coincide with the timing of the normal accounting period close.  References to "Successor" relate to the financial position and results of operations of the reorganized Company subsequent to July 31, 2017, while references to "Predecessor" refer to the financial position and results of operations of the Company on and prior to July 31, 2017.  The Successor and Predecessor GAAP results for the applicable periods are presented in the tables following this release.  As a result of various adjustments to the condensed consolidated financial statements in connection with the application of fresh start accounting, the results of operations for the Successor period are not comparable to those of the Predecessor period.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS
(In thousands)
(Unaudited)

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statements of operations or balance sheets of the Company; or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the attached financial tables.

These non-GAAP financial measures are provided because management of the Company uses these financial measures in maintaining and evaluating the Company's ongoing financial results and trends. Management uses this non-GAAP information as an indicator of business results, and evaluates overall performance with respect to such indicators. Management believes that excluding items such as acquisition expenses, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, asset impairments, restructuring charges, expenses related to litigation and resolution of lawsuits, and other charges, which may or may not be non-recurring, among other items that are inconsistent in amount and frequency (as with acquisition expenses), or determined pursuant to complex formulas that incorporate factors, such as market volatility, that are beyond our control (as with stock-based compensation), for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of the Company's current operating performance and comparisons to the past and future operating performance. The Company believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures such as EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted net income (loss) per share,  in addition to related GAAP financial measures, provides investors with greater transparency to the information used by the Company's management. These non-GAAP financial measures are not substitutes for measures of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with GAAP and may not necessarily be indicative of the Company's liquidity or ability to fund cash needs. Not all companies calculate non-GAAP financial measures in the same manner, and our presentation may not be comparable to the presentations of other companies.
