NEWPARK RESOURCES REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2022 RESULTS

NEWPARK RESOURCES REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2022 RESULTS

May 3, 2022 at 4:15 PM EDT

Company reports revenues of $176 million, operating income of $1.0 million, net income of $2.5 million, and EBITDA of $11.4 million; Completes U.S. bank facility amendment

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, May 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE: NR) ("Newpark" or the "Company") today announced results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022. Total revenues for the first quarter of 2022 were $176.4 million compared to $179.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $141.2 million for the first quarter of 2021. Net income for the first quarter of 2022 was $2.5 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $3.7 million, or ($0.04) per share, for the fourth quarter of 2021, and a net loss of $5.4 million, or ($0.06) per share, for the first quarter of 2021. The first quarter 2022 results include the impact of the following:

  • As a result of the restructuring of certain subsidiary legal entities within Europe, the provision for income taxes includes an income tax benefit of $3.1 million as the undistributed earnings for an international subsidiary are no longer subject to certain taxes upon future distribution; and
  • An operating loss of $0.9 million and EBITDA loss of $0.6 million for the Industrial Blending business. As previously announced, the Company shut down the Industrial Blending operations in March 2022 and is divesting of the assets, which is reported within the Industrial Solutions segment.

Combined, the above items provided a $0.03 net benefit to earnings per diluted share for the first quarter of 2022.

Matthew Lanigan, Newpark's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are very encouraged by our performance in the first quarter, which reflects improving market fundamentals across both of our business segments, as well as the impact from our continued execution on our key strategic priorities. Consolidated revenues decreased 2% sequentially to $176 million in the first quarter, reflecting the anticipated seasonal pullback in Industrial Solutions product sales, largely offset by strong growth in the Fluids Systems segment. Despite the modest pullback in revenues, the first quarter consolidated operating income and EBITDA represent our strongest quarterly result since the third quarter of 2019.

"The Industrial Solutions segment revenues declined 31% sequentially to $35 million in the first quarter, reflecting an $18 million sequential decline from the anticipated seasonal pullback in product sales following the year-end strength in the utilities sector, which was further impacted by the shipment of some Q1 orders shifting into April. The decline from product sales was somewhat offset by an 8% sequential improvement in rental and service revenues, including 17% sequential growth from the targeted utilities and industrial end-markets, which benefitted from our previously announced fourth quarter acquisition in the Northeast and the start-up of large-scale projects in the South.  The Industrial Solutions segment delivered $5.5 million of operating income and $11.2 million of EBITDA in the first quarter, which includes a $0.9 million operating loss and $0.6 million EBITDA loss associated with the Industrial Blending operation."

Lanigan continued, "The Fluids Systems segment revenues improved 10% sequentially, driven by broad-based growth across several key markets. In North America, revenues improved by 13% sequentially to $93 million, including 10% growth from U.S. land and 34% from Canada. These improvements were partially offset by a modest revenue decline in the Gulf of Mexico, driven by further project delays. International revenues improved 6% sequentially to $48 million in the first quarter, driven primarily by higher activity in Europe and Africa. Despite absorbing an increasing headwind from raw material cost inflation on certain long-term international contracts for which customer pricing is fixed, the Fluids Systems segment operating income improved to $3.4 million, delivering $7.4 million of EBITDA, reflecting the impact of the stronger revenues along with pricing and cost actions in North America. Corporate office expenses also declined by $1.5 million sequentially to $7.9 million in the first quarter, though the first quarter included $0.7 million of legal and professional expenses associated with shareholder, acquisition and divestiture matters.

"Regarding cash flows, operating activities provided cash of $3 million in the first quarter, including $5 million of cash used to fund an increase in net working capital. Although receivable DSO's improved sequentially, activity-driven increases in inventories used $15 million of cash, including international Fluids Systems purchases in preparation for projects scheduled to begin in the second quarter, as well as the delayed timing of Industrial Solutions product sales. Inventories were further impacted by cost inflation and elevated contingency stocks being carried in response to the ongoing supply chain uncertainty," added Lanigan. "Looking ahead, we expect positive net income generation in the second quarter, benefitting primarily from sequential growth in Industrial Solutions revenues and profitability, combined with lower corporate office expenses. We expect the improving market outlook across all facets of the energy sector, along with our ongoing portfolio actions to strengthen our Fluids Systems business, will provide a foundation for sustainable free cash flow generation going forward."

U.S. Asset-Based Loan Facility Amendment

The Company recently completed an amendment to its outstanding U.S. asset-based revolving credit agreement that was scheduled to mature in March 2024. The amended and restated $175 million asset-based loan facility (the "Amended ABL Facility") has a five-year term, expiring May 2027, and includes the following changes to the previous ABL facility:

  • Expands facility borrowing capacity associated with the Industrial Solutions rental mat fleet;
  • Replaces LIBOR-based pricing grid with a BSBY-based pricing grid set at BSBY, plus 150 to 200 basis points; and
  • Incorporates a sustainability-linked framework, with targets to be established based on agreed-upon sustainability metrics.

The total availability under the Amended ABL Facility is currently $133.5 million. The bank group includes Bank of America, N.A. (Administrative Agent, Joint Lead Arranger, Joint Book Manager, and Syndication Agent), JPMorganChase Bank, N.A. (Joint Lead Arranger, Joint Book Manager, and Documentation Agent), and First Horizon Bank.

Segment Results

The Industrial Solutions segment generated revenues of $35.4 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $51.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $53.3 million for the first quarter of 2021. Segment operating income was $5.5 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to operating income of $8.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $13.1 million for the first quarter of 2021. Industrial Solutions operating income for the first quarter of 2022 includes a loss of $0.9 million for the Industrial Blending business that we shut down in March 2022. Industrial Solutions operating income for the fourth quarter of 2021 included $0.9 million of incremental pre-tax expenses related to a multi-year sales tax audit and insurance reserves.

The Fluids Systems segment generated revenues of $141.0 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $127.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $87.8 million for the first quarter of 2021. Segment operating income was $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to operating income of $0.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and an operating loss of $6.8 million for the first quarter of 2021. Fluids Systems operating income for the fourth quarter of 2021 included $0.9 million of charges primarily related to facility exit and severance costs.

Newpark Resources, Inc.

Non-GAAP Reconciliations

(Unaudited)


To help understand the Company's financial performance, the Company has supplemented its financial results that it provides in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") with non-GAAP financial measures. Such financial measures include earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), EBITDA Margin, Free Cash Flow, Net Debt, and the Ratio of Net Debt to Capital. 


We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors, securities analysts and other parties in the evaluation of our performance and liquidity with that of other companies in our industry. Management uses these measures to evaluate our operating performance, liquidity and capital structure. In addition, our incentive compensation plan measures performance based on our consolidated EBITDA, along with other factors. The methods we use to produce these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from methods used by other companies. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. 


EBITDA and EBITDA Margin 


The following tables reconcile the Company's net income (loss) or segment operating income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measure of EBITDA:
