Share:

Record Revenue since the Spin
Operating Results In-Line with Expectations
Repurchased Over One Million Shares during the Quarter

HOUSTON, Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exterran Corporation (NYSE:EXTN) ("Exterran" or the "Company") today reported second quarter financial results.

Andrew Way, Exterran's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "It was another strong execution quarter for the company as we delivered record total company revenue and adjusted EBITDA, which included generating $35 million in cash flow from operations. Inquiries for our products and services remains strong, but capital discipline within the energy industry continues to put pressure on the release of orders for projects by our customers. Despite orders for the second quarter coming in lighter than expected, the third quarter was off to a stronger start, as orders we anticipated in June have materialized.

"Under the current authorization we repurchased 1,021,578 shares at an average price of $13.83 per share during the second quarter."

Net loss from continuing operations was $14.8 million, or $0.42 per share, on revenue of $390.9 million for the second quarter of 2019. This compares to net loss from continuing operations of $5.6 million, or $0.16 per share, on revenue of $351.4 million for the first quarter of 2019 and net loss from continuing operations of $1.5 million, or $0.04 per share, on revenue of $343.5 million for the second quarter of 2018. Net loss was $7.3 million for the second quarter of 2019, as compared to net loss of $5.4 million for the first quarter of 2019 and net income of $0.1 million for the second quarter of 2018. EBITDA, as adjusted, was $53.2 million for the second quarter of 2019, as compared to $50.2 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $51.2 million for the second quarter of 2018. Loss before taxes was $4.2 million as compared to income before taxes of $3.6 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $8.2 million for the second quarter of 2018.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $45.6 million in the second quarter of 2019, as compared with $43.5 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $44.4 million in the second quarter of 2018. The company also recorded restructuring charges of $5.8 million, with the purpose of driving efficiencies across the organization given the focus on improving returns and cash flows.

Contract Operations Segment
Contract operations revenue in the second quarter of 2019 was $89.7 million, a 5% increase from first quarter of 2019 revenue of $85.7 million and a 2% decrease from second quarter of 2018 revenue of $91.5 million.

Contract operations gross margin in the second quarter of 2019 was $59.3 million, as compared to gross margin of $57.1 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $59.1 million in the second quarter of 2018. Gross margin percentage in the second quarter of 2019 was 66%, as compared with 67% in the first quarter of 2019 and 65% in the second quarter of 2018.

Revenue increased sequentially driven by the commencement of a project in the Middle East, while margins remained relatively flat.

Aftermarket Services Segment
Aftermarket services revenue in the second quarter of 2019 was $30.1 million, a 10% increase from first quarter of 2019 revenue of $27.3 million and a 7% decrease from second quarter of 2018 revenue of $32.3 million.

Aftermarket services gross margin in the second quarter of 2019 was $9.1 million, a 38% increase from the first quarter of 2019 gross margin of $6.6 million and a 6% increase from the second quarter of 2018 gross margin of $8.6 million. Gross margin percentage in the second quarter of 2019 was 30%, as compared with 24% in the first quarter of 2019 and 27% in the second quarter of 2018.

The sequential increase in revenue was partially due to the lessening of the seasonal impact we experienced in first quarter along with an increase in parts sales during the quarter. The increase in gross margin sequentially is largely due to better mix of business during the quarter.

Product Sales Segment
Product sales revenue in the second quarter of 2019 was $271.1 million, a 14% increase from first quarter of 2019 revenue of $238.4 million, and a 23% increase from second quarter of 2018 revenue of $219.7 million.

Product sales gross margin in the second quarter of 2019 was $30.5 million, a 5% increase from first quarter of 2019 gross margin of $28.9 million and a 9% increase as compared to the second quarter of 2018 gross margin of $28.0 million. Gross margin percentage in the second quarter of 2019 was 11%, as compared with 12% in the first quarter of 2019 and 13% in the second quarter of 2018.

The revenue increase was driven by strong execution on our products backlog. Gross margins declined slightly as the mix towards compression increased.

Product sales backlog was $361.7 million at June 30, 2019, as compared to $553.5 million at March 31, 2019 and $634.9 million at June 30, 2018. Product sales bookings for the second quarter of 2019 were $79.3 million, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 29%. This compares to bookings of $86.2 million for the first quarter of 2019 and bookings of $439.7 million for the second quarter of 2018. The second quarter of 2018 included a $200 million order for a Middle East project.
