Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial and Operating Results

MIDLAND, Texas May 9, 2019 - Natural Gas Services Group, Inc. (“NGS” or the “Company”) (NYSE:NGS), a leading provider of gas compression equipment and services to the energy industry, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2019, NGS reported rental revenue of $13.4 million compared to $11.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Sequentially, rental revenue increased from $12.8 million.

The Company reported net income for the first quarter of $357,000 compared to $225,000 in the same quarter in 2018 and a loss of $282,000 in the prior quarter. However, the fourth quarter net loss included an adjustment for income tax expense and interest (“tax adjustment”) related to executive compensation of $633,000. Excluding this tax adjustment net income slightly increased from $351,000. Earnings per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 was 3 cents. Please see discussions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures-Special Items, below.

Highlights of the quarter include:

Revenue: Total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $18.0 million, an increase from $14.7 million compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018. This increase was primarily driven by a greater number of units being rented, as well as increased rental rates as a result of our move into higher horsepower rentals. We also saw an increase in our compressor sales during first quarter 2019 compared to 2018. Sequentially, total revenue increased by $1.8 million to $18.0 million from $16.2 million, mainly due to higher compressor sales.

Operating Income: Operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 decreased to $209,000 from $350,000 compared to the same period in the prior year due to lower gross margins, higher indirect costs and depreciation. Sequentially, operating income increased to $209,000 from $106,000 mainly due to an increase in revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Adjusted Gross Margins: Total adjusted gross margin for the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased $502,000 to $8.3 million from $7.8 million for the same period ended March 31, 2018 and as a percentage of revenue decreased to 46% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to 53% for the same period ended March 31, 2018. This decrease is due to the revenue mix shifting towards lower margin sales from higher margin rentals. Sequentially, adjusted gross margin of $8.3 million for the three months ending March 31, 2019 increased slightly compared to $8.2 million in the three months ended in December 31, 2018. Adjusted gross margin as a percentage of revenue decreased to 46% from 51% the previous quarter, driven by the same shift in revenues towards lower margin sales from higher margin rentals. Please see discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted Gross Margin at the conclusion of this release.

Net Income: Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 increased to $357,000 compared to net income of $225,000 for the same period in 2018. Sequentially, net income also increased to $357,000 from a net loss of $282,000. Excluding the tax adjustment, when comparing sequential periods, net income increased slightly from $351,000. Please see discussions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures-Special Items, below.

Earnings Per Share: Comparing the first quarter of 2019 versus 2018, earnings per diluted share was 3 cents, up 1 cent from 2018. Sequentially, diluted earnings per share increased to 3 cents from a net loss per diluted share of 2 cents.
