HOUSTON, Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NCS Multistage Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCSM) (the “Company,” “NCS,” “we” or “us”), a leading provider of highly engineered products and support services that facilitate the optimization of oil and natural gas well completions and field development strategies, today announced its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Financial Review

Revenues were $60.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, which was a decrease of 3% compared to the third quarter of 2018. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in the volume of sales of our fracturing systems products and services and our well construction products in the U.S., partially offset by increased sales of our Repeat Precision, LLC (“Repeat Precision”) products. Total revenues increased by 53% as compared to the second quarter of 2019 with increases of 7% in the United States, 127% in Canada and 301% outside of North America.

Gross profit, which we define as total revenues less total cost of sales exclusive of depreciation and amortization, was $28.6 million, or 47% of total revenues, in the third quarter of 2019, a decrease compared to $33.9 million, or 54% of total revenues, in the third quarter of 2018. Cost of sales was a higher percentage of revenues due to reductions in the pricing of our products and services, the use of third-party machining capacity, and higher cost of sales in tracer diagnostics, related to field service staffing levels and increased chemical costs associated with tariffs imposed on certain imports from China in September 2018 and later increased in May 2019. These increases were partially offset by increased sales at Repeat Precision, which enabled better fixed cost utilization.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses of $20.4 million increased in the third quarter as compared to the third quarter of the prior year. The increase was due to higher professional services expenses, most notably litigation expenses, and a one-time severance charge of $0.7 million related to a reduction in workforce, partially offset by lower research and development expenses.

Net income was $3.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, which included a net impact of $0.1 million (after tax effect of $(6.8) million, or $(0.15) per diluted share) related to realized and unrealized foreign currency gains and losses as well as the income tax impact of the income tax valuation allowance recorded to reduce the carrying value of our U.S. deferred tax asset and the tax effect of a non-deductible goodwill impairment recorded earlier this year. Adjusted net loss, which excludes these items, was $(3.2) million, or $(0.07) per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. This compares to a net income of $6.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018, which included a net benefit of $1.2 million ($0.9 million after tax, or $0.02 per diluted share) related to the change in fair value of contingent consideration and realized and unrealized foreign currency gains and losses. Adjusted net income, which excludes these items, was $5.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA was $13.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, a decrease of $(4.4) million as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter was 22%, as compared to 29% for the third quarter of 2018.

Capital Expenditures and Liquidity

The Company incurred capital expenditures of $0.3 million, net, for the third quarter of 2019 and $4.4 million, net, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $4.5 million in cash, total potential availability under its revolving credit facility of $62.0 million and $16.3 million in total debt. During the third quarter, the Company reduced its total debt by $3.2 million, including a $3.0 million reduction in its revolving credit facility balance.

Review and Outlook

NCS’s Chief Executive Officer, Robert Nipper, commented, “I’m very proud of the tremendous team we have at NCS and the results we were able to deliver during the third quarter. Despite a difficult market environment which, for example, saw the average U.S. land rig count fall by 7% on a sequential basis, we achieved 7% sequential total U.S. revenue growth and our eighth consecutive quarter of sequential U.S. product sales growth. Market conditions in Canada continue to be very challenging, with the average land rig count in the third quarter 37% below last year’s levels. By growing our market share in fracturing systems and focusing on cross-selling each of our product and service lines, we limited our year-over-year decline in Canadian revenue to only 10%. We also demonstrated the benefit of our international footprint during the quarter, having provided products or services in Argentina, China, Russia, the Middle East, the North Sea and the UK.

As we look forward to the fourth quarter, we expect a continued decline in rig count and completion activity in the U.S., as customers constrain activity to stay within their capital budgets. In Canada, the average rig count through the first three quarters was 33% below the same period during 2018. We expect customer activity in the fourth quarter to continue to be materially below last year’s levels. International activity remains a relative bright spot, being more resilient than customer activity in North America.

We made good progress during the third quarter in advancing initiatives undertaken to address the items that pressured our gross margin during the second quarter. There is still room to improve, and we continue to work to enhance the efficiency of our supply chain and commercialize new products that we believe will benefit our gross margin in the future. This is especially important in an environment with declining customer activity, as we face today, which creates significant competitive pricing pressure among oilfield services companies.

We made the difficult decision to reduce our workforce by 6% in July. We are highly focused on managing our spending as a company, and were able to reduce our SG&A by over 10% in the third quarter, as compared to the second quarter. We are again reducing our expected full year gross capital spending to between $6.0 and $7.0 million, the midpoint of which is less than half of 2018 capital spending. Our employees continue to provide us with additional ideas for further improving the efficiency of our operations and streamlining our spending, and the results speak for themselves.

As always, I want to thank each and every one of our employees for their efforts, actions, support and ideas. It is through this team, which delivers excellent operational performance and customer service every single day, that we are able to earn the right to work for our customers and drive continued innovation in our industry.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA is defined as net (loss) income before interest expense, net, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted to exclude certain items which we believe are not reflective of ongoing operating performance or which, in the case of an impairment and share-based compensation, are non-cash in nature. Adjusted EBITDA margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenues. Adjusted EBITDA Less Share-Based Compensation is defined as Adjusted EBITDA minus share-based compensation expense. Adjusted Net (Loss) Income is defined as net (loss) income attributable to NCS Multistage Holdings, Inc. adjusted to exclude certain items which we believe are not reflective of ongoing performance. Adjusted Net (Loss) Earnings per Diluted Share is defined as Adjusted Net (Loss) Income divided by our diluted weighted average common shares outstanding during the relevant period. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less purchases of property and equipment (inclusive of the purchase and development of software and technology) plus proceeds from sales of property and equipment, as presented in our consolidated statement of cash flows. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and Adjusted Net (Loss) Earnings per Diluted Share are important measures that exclude costs that management believes do not reflect our ongoing operating performance and, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, certain costs associated with our capital structure. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA Less Share-Based Compensation presents our financial performance in a manner that is comparable to the presentation provided by many of our peers. We believe free cash flow is useful because it provides information to investors regarding the cash that was available in the period that was in excess of our needs to fund our capital expenditures and other investment needs. Accordingly, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA Less Share-Based Compensation, Adjusted Net (Loss) Income, Adjusted Net (Loss) Earnings per Diluted Share and Free Cash Flow are key metrics that management uses to assess the period-to-period performance of our core business operations. We believe that presenting Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA Less Share-Based Compensation, Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and Adjusted Net (Loss) Earnings per Diluted Share enables investors to assess our performance from period to period using the same metrics utilized by management and that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA Less Share-Based Compensation, Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and Adjusted Net (Loss) Earnings per Diluted Share enable investors to evaluate our performance relative to other companies that are not subject to such factors.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA Less Share-Based Compensation, Adjusted Net (Loss) Income, Adjusted Net (Loss) Earnings per Diluted Share and Free Cash Flow (our “non-GAAP financial measures”) are not defined under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), are not measures of net income, income from operations, cash provided by operating activities or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, and are subject to important limitations. Our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies in our industry and are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP financial measures have important limitations as analytical tools and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our financial performance as reported under GAAP and they should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), cash provided by operating activities or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as measures of our liquidity.

The tables below set forth reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable measure of financial performance calculated under GAAP:
