Newpark Resources Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

Newpark Resources Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

October 27, 2016 at 4:16 PM EDT

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE: NR) today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2016. Total revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $104.6 million compared to $115.3 million in the second quarter of 2016 and $154.2 million in the third quarter of 2015. Net loss for the third quarter of 2016 was $13.5 million, or $0.16 per share, compared to a net loss of $13.9 million, or $0.17 per share, in the second quarter of 2016, and a net loss of $4.5 million, or $0.05 per share, in the third quarter of 2015. Third quarter 2016 results included the impact of the following:

  • $2.6 million of pre-tax charges ($2.5 million after-tax) in the Fluids Systems segment associated with asset demobilization and wind-down of our operations in Uruguay, following the customer decision to discontinue offshore exploration efforts in the country.
  • $0.7 million of pre-tax charges ($0.4 million after-tax) in the Mats and Integrated Services segment resulting from our decision to recondition certain customer mats that were produced in 2015, as part of our initial start-up of the new manufacturing line.

Combined, the above items resulted in a $3.3 million increase to pre-tax loss ($2.9 million, after taxes).

Paul Howes, Newpark's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "While market conditions remain challenging in most areas, we're encouraged by the early signs of recovery in North America, where we've seen our customer activity steadily improving over the past four months. Revenues in our North American fluids business improved by 22% sequentially to $40 million in the third quarter, benefiting from the improving rig count, as well as revenues from product sales into the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.  As anticipated, international fluids revenues declined sequentially, driven primarily by the impact of the ultra-deepwater exploratory well in Uruguay, which was successfully completed in the second quarter. Our EMEA region, which has been the most resilient through the current cycle, contributed $40 million of revenues, benefiting from the continued strong activity levels in Algeria and Kuwait.

"In the mats segment, revenues declined by 19% sequentially, primarily due to the anticipated decline in mat sales. Rental and service revenues also declined modestly from the prior quarter, largely reflecting seasonal impacts in the electrical transmission and distribution segment, as infrastructure maintenance programs were delayed during periods of extreme summer heat.

"Meanwhile, our balance sheet position remains strong, as we ended the third quarter with a cash balance of $92 million," added Howes.  "Working capital reductions provided $14 million of cash in the third quarter, while we continue to fund our strategic investments, including the expansion of our Gulf of Mexico Deepwater shorebase facility. We also used $4 million during the quarter to fund the acquisition of a specialty chemicals provider in North America, which further expands our fluids technology portfolio and capabilities, as we continue the development of next-generation fluids systems."

Segment Results

The Fluids Systems segment generated revenues of $89.1 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $96.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 and $138.8 million in the third quarter of 2015. Segment operating loss was $9.0 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to a $11.9 million loss in the second quarter of 2016 and a $1.2 million loss in the third quarter of 2015. Segment results for the third quarter of 2016 included $2.6 million of costs associated with the demobilization of activities following completion of the Uruguay project.

The Mats and Integrated Services segment generated revenues of $15.5 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $19.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 and $15.4 million in the third quarter of 2015. Segment operating income was $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2016, which included $0.7 million of costs related to the reconditioning of customer mats, compared to operating income of $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2016, and a $0.1 million loss in the third quarter of 2015. Segment operating income in 2016 is benefiting from a reduction in depreciation expense associated with our mat rental fleet, reflecting increases in estimated useful lives and residual values. This change in estimate reduced depreciation expense by $1.5 million in both the third quarter and second quarter of 2016.
