Newpark Resources Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results


Company reports second quarter cash flow from operating activities of $32 million; free cash flow of $30 million

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, July 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE: NR) ("Newpark" or the "Company") today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2019. Total revenues for the second quarter of 2019 were $216.4 million compared to $211.5 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $236.3 million for the second quarter of 2018. Net income for the second quarter of 2019 was $4.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to $1.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019, and $10.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018.

Paul Howes, Newpark's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Despite continued softness in the U.S. oil and gas market and the impact of Spring break-up in Canada, we are pleased to report that our global Fluids Systems revenues increased by 7% sequentially, to $173 million. U.S. Fluids revenues improved 14% sequentially, to $117 million, primarily driven by a $9 million revenue increase from the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, as our offshore market penetration efforts gain traction. Outside of North America, international Fluids revenues also rebounded nicely, increasing 14% sequentially to $50 million, driven by improvements across several key markets," added Howes. "Benefiting from the stronger revenues, operating cost efficiencies following our recent international contract transitions, as well as our continuing margin improvement initiatives in our U.S. business, Fluids Systems segment operating income improved sequentially to a 7% segment operating margin in the second quarter.

"In our Mats and Integrated Services segment, the continued slowdown in the U.S. E&P market is serving to further validate our strategic focus on penetrating key non-E&P markets. We are encouraged by the progress we are making in diversifying our business, as we re-allocate assets to support our energy infrastructure market penetration efforts, including the electrical transmission and distribution, and pipeline construction and maintenance sectors. Second quarter segment revenues declined 14% sequentially to $44 million, primarily reflecting the impact of weakness in E&P customer activity.  Meanwhile, heavy rainfalls and flooding in certain areas resulted in delays of scheduled energy infrastructure projects. Segment revenues were further impacted by delays in anticipated international direct mat sales, as deliveries shifted into the third quarter," added Howes. "In the face of the current market challenges, our mats business continues to exhibit operating discipline, delivering a 21% operating margin in the second quarter. Further, our expanding schedule of rental projects in the electrical transmission and distribution market is expected to provide a benefit to the mats business as we progress through the second half of the year and into 2020.

"Meanwhile, our consistent cash flow generation and strong balance sheet continues to differentiate Newpark from many oilfield service companies," added Howes. "During the second quarter, we continued to return excess capital through our share repurchase program, using $10 million to purchase outstanding shares and increasing our total first half 2019 purchases to two million shares."

Segment Results

The Fluids Systems segment generated revenues of $172.5 million for the second quarter of 2019 compared to $160.7 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $179.7 million for the second quarter of 2018. Segment operating income was $12.2 million for the second quarter of 2019 compared to $3.9 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $13.3 million for the second quarter of 2018.

The Mats and Integrated Services segment generated revenues of $43.9 million for the second quarter of 2019 compared to $50.8 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $56.5 million for the second quarter of 2018. Segment operating income was $9.3 million for the second quarter of 2019 compared to $13.5 million for the first quarter of 2019 and $14.9 million for the second quarter of 2018.

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 calculated in accordance with GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measure of the Company's EBITDA:
