Newpark Resources Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results

Newpark Resources Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results

November 2, 2021 at 4:15 PM EDT

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE: NR) ("Newpark" or the "Company") today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021. Total revenues for the third quarter of 2021 were $151.8 million compared to $142.2 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $96.4 million for the third quarter of 2020. Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $10.5 million, or ($0.11) per share, compared to a net loss of $6.0 million, or ($0.07) per share, for the second quarter of 2021, and a net loss of $23.9 million, or ($0.26) per share, for the third quarter of 2020.

Third quarter 2021 operating results include the impact of $4.0 million of pre-tax charges, all in the Fluids Systems segment ($0.04 per share after-tax), primarily related to self-insured costs associated with Hurricane Ida and restructuring related costs.

Paul Howes, Newpark's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Although we faced some continued market challenges during the third quarter, including the impact of Hurricane Ida and the lingering COVID-related impact on our international operations, we are encouraged by the improving market dynamics in the oil and gas sector and remain focused on our ongoing efforts to scale our U.S. Fluids Systems business. Consolidated revenues improved 7% sequentially to $152 million, benefitting from continued strength in Site and Access Solutions product sales along with an 11% improvement in Fluids Systems revenues.   

"Our Industrial Solutions business performance continues to demonstrate the value of our diversification efforts, as we expand our presence in the power transmission and other industrial end-markets. While the third quarter was impacted by the typical seasonal slowdown in T&D rental project activity, this seasonal lull was largely offset by a $4 million increase in site access product sales, reflecting the benefit of our expanding customer base within the utility sector. With the modestly lower revenue and shift in revenue mix, our Industrial Solutions operating margin declined to 18% in the third quarter."

Howes continued, "In the Fluids Systems segment, revenues improved 11% sequentially, primarily driven by strength in Canada and other international markets. North America revenues improved by 14% sequentially to $71 million, substantially all driven by the Canadian market. U.S. revenues remained in-line with prior quarter, with modest improvement in land activity offset by a $2 million weather-driven decline in the Gulf of Mexico. International revenues improved 6% sequentially to $37 million in the third quarter, with our expansion in Asia Pacific being the primary driver of the improvement. Benefitting from the revenue improvement and our ongoing actions to reshape the U.S. business for a structurally smaller market, the Fluids Systems segment made meaningful progress towards a return to positive cash flow generation, however, this improvement was offset by $4.0 million of third quarter charges associated with Hurricane Ida and restructuring efforts.

"With the improvement in revenues and timing of customer activities within the quarter, we used $14 million of cash in the third quarter to fund a net working capital increase. The majority of the working capital increase reflects an increase in international receivable DSO's, which we expect will normalize going forward," added Howes. "We also made $6 million of net capital investments in the third quarter, substantially all to expand our mat rental fleet in support of our pipeline of fourth quarter power transmission rental projects."

Segment Results

The Fluids Systems segment generated revenues of $108.0 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $97.1 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $67.7 million for the third quarter of 2020. Segment operating loss was $6.6 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to an operating loss of $6.5 million for the second quarter of 2021 and an operating loss of $19.0 million for the third quarter of 2020. Operating loss for the third quarter of 2021 includes $4.0 million of charges primarily related to self-insured costs associated with Hurricane Ida damage to our Fourchon, Louisiana Fluids Systems operating base, facility exit, and severance costs. Operating loss for the second quarter of 2021 included $0.6 million of charges related to severance costs. Operating loss for the third quarter of 2020 included $4.5 million of charges primarily related to the impairment of certain fixed assets and other non-cash charges.

The Industrial Solutions segment generated revenues of $43.8 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $45.2 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $28.7 million for the third quarter of 2020. Segment operating income was $8.1 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to operating income of $10.1 million for the second quarter of 2021 and operating loss of $0.1 million for the third quarter of 2020. Operating income for the second quarter of 2021 included a $1.0 million gain related to a legal settlement.

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:
