Share:

Civeo Corporation (NYSE:CVEO) today reported financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Highlights include:

  • Delivered second quarter revenues of $122.2 million
  • Reported second quarter net loss of $15.3 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $26.5 million, with Adjusted EBITDA up 8% year-over-year
  • Completed the acquisition of Action Industrial Catering Pty Ltd, a provider of catering and managed services to the remote mining industry in Western Australia, on July 1, 2019
  • Awarded a four-year contract renewal from BHP Billiton Mitsui Coal Pty Ltd ("BMC") to provide rooms and hospitality services from the Company's existing Coppabella and Nebo villages in Australia
  • Awarded a two-year contract renewal to provide rooms and hospitality services to a major oil sands producer at the Company's Fort McMurray Village and Grey Wolf lodges in Canada with take-or-pay revenues totaling approximately C$62 million
  • Completed the expansion of our Sitka Lodge from 646 rooms to approximately 1,100 rooms to support the LNG Canada project in Kitimat, B.C.

"During the second quarter, we generated improved year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA, up 8%. Our Australia business generated improved year-over-year revenues and Adjusted EBITDA as Bowen Basin activity, supported by current metallurgical coal prices, continued to improve. The U.S. business continued to benefit from the repositioning of our well site assets to the Permian and Mid-Con regions in 2018, with Adjusted EBITDA up 30% on a year-over-year basis. Our second quarter Canadian results were down year-over-year due to lower year-over-year oil sands-related turnaround activity partially offset by increased LNG-related occupancy," stated Bradley J. Dodson, Civeo's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Dodson added, "We continue to focus on operational execution and winning work as opportunities present themselves. As a testament to this, we are pleased to announce a two-year contract renewal with one of our largest oil sands customers in Canada, as well as the previously announced contract renewal from BMC in Australia. These awards demonstrate our strong customer relationships and commitment to a quality service offering."

Mr. Dodson concluded, "In July, we also completed the acquisition of Action Industrial Catering in Western Australia, an exciting milestone for our Australian business. This acquisition materially grows our business in Western Australia and provides a strategic entry point into the catering and managed services industry in Australia, underpinning our focus on pursuing opportunities that align with our core competencies and strategic direction."

Second Quarter 2019 Results

In the second quarter of 2019, Civeo generated revenues of $122.2 million and reported a net loss of $15.3 million, or $0.09 per share. The second quarter net loss included asset impairments in Australia totaling $5.5 million, or $0.03 per share. During the second quarter of 2019, Civeo produced operating cash flow of $3.6 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $26.5 million.

Overall, the second quarter of 2019 outperformed the second quarter of 2018 due to stronger results in Australia and the U.S. coupled with a reduction in SG&A primarily related to costs incurred in connection with the Noralta acquisition and lower share-based compensation.

By comparison, in the second quarter of 2018, Civeo generated revenues of $130.2 million and reported a net loss of $48.3 million, or $0.29 per share. The second quarter net loss was largely driven by the recognition of the accounting impact of a non-cash beneficial conversion feature on the outstanding preferred shares totaling $48.5 million, or $0.29 per share. During the second quarter of 2018, Civeo generated operating cash flow of $11.1 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $24.5 million.

(EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as net income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted to exclude impairment charges and certain costs associated with Civeo's acquisition of Noralta. Please see the reconciliations to GAAP measures at the end of this news release.)

Business Segment Results

(Unless otherwise noted, the following discussion compares the quarterly results for the second quarter of 2019 to the results for the second quarter of 2018.)

Canada

During the second quarter of 2019, the Canadian segment generated revenues of $78.1 million, operating loss of $5.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $16.3 million, compared to revenues of $86.5 million, operating loss of $7.4 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $17.6 million in the second quarter of 2018. The second quarter of 2019 results reflect the impact of a weakened Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar, which decreased revenues and Adjusted EBITDA by $2.8 million and $0.6 million, respectively.

On a constant currency basis, the Canadian segment experienced a 6% period-over-period decrease in revenues driven by a year-over-year decrease in maintenance and turnaround activity related to the continued impact of provincially imposed oil production curtailments. The decrease was partially offset by the improving contribution of LNG-related occupancy in British Columbia.

Canadian Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2019 was also positively impacted by $1.1 million of other income for proceeds from an insurance claim related to the closure of a lodge in 2018 for maintenance-related operational issues.

Earlier this month, Civeo was awarded a two-year contract renewal with a major oil sands producer at our Fort McMurray Village and Grey Wolf lodges in Canada. The contract includes a minimum room commitment, with take-or-pay revenues totaling C$62 million through 2021, with further potential upside based on room usage.

Australia

During the second quarter of 2019, the Australian segment generated revenues of $31.0 million, operating loss of $5.6 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $13.0 million, compared to revenues of $30.6 million, operating loss of $1.1 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $11.5 million in the second quarter of 2018. The second quarter of 2019 results reflect the impact of a weakened Australian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar, which decreased revenues and Adjusted EBITDA by $2.5 million and $1.0 million, respectively.

On a constant currency basis, the Australian segment experienced a 10% period-over-period increase in revenues driven by strong occupancy with billed rooms up 11% year-over-year primarily due to continued improvement in metallurgical coal activity across our Bowen Basin villages.

On July 1, 2019, Civeo acquired Action Industrial Catering, a provider of catering and managed services to the remote mining industry in Western Australia. The acquisition is immediately delevering to the Company's balance sheet, strengthens its presence in Western Australia, expands its service offering and provides Civeo access to the iron ore market.

U.S.

The U.S. segment generated revenues of $13.1 million, operating loss of $1.4 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to revenues of $13.1 million, operating loss of $1.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2018. While year-over-year revenues were flat, the Adjusted EBITDA improvement was primarily driven by lower year-over-year relocation expenses for the well site business, which spent most of 2018 moving well site assets out of legacy northern markets into the Permian and Mid-Con regions.

Income Taxes

Civeo recognized an income tax benefit of $2.9 million, which resulted in an effective tax rate of 16.1%, in the second quarter of 2019. During the second quarter of 2018, Civeo recognized an income tax benefit of $23.4 million, which resulted in an effective tax rate of 101%.

Financial Condition

As of June 30, 2019, Civeo had total liquidity of approximately $33.2 million, consisting of $19.8 million available under its revolving credit facilities and $13.5 million of cash on hand.

Civeo's total debt outstanding on June 30, 2019 was $405.3 million, a $21.8 million increase since March 31, 2019. The increase resulted primarily from a negative foreign currency translation impact of $8.2 million and capital expenditures related to the expansion of Sitka Lodge.

During the second quarter of 2019, Civeo invested $11.5 million in capital expenditures, up from $3.2 million during second quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily related to the recently completed expansion of its Sitka Lodge in Canada to support LNG Canada related contracts.

Third Quarter and Full Year 2019 Guidance

For the third quarter of 2019, Civeo expects Adjusted EBITDA of $30.0 million to $33.5 million and for the full year of 2019, Civeo expects Adjusted EBITDA of $95.0 million to $101.0 million.
