RPC, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

 

ATLANTA, April 28, 2021 - RPC, Inc. (NYSE: RES) today announced its unaudited results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. RPC provides a broad range of specialized oilfield services and equipment primarily to independent and major oilfield companies engaged in the exploration, production and development of oil and gas properties throughout the United States and in selected international markets.

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, RPC generated revenues of $182.6 million, a decrease of 25.1 percent compared to $243.8 million in the first quarter of 2020. Operating loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $10.5 million compared to an operating loss of $218.7 million and an adjusted operating loss of $13.2 million in the first quarter of the prior year.1 Net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $9.7 million, or $0.05 loss per share, compared to a net loss of $160.4 million, or $0.76 loss per share in first quarter of the prior year. In the first quarter of 2020 the adjusted net loss was $9.0 million, or $0.04 adjusted loss per share.2 Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the first quarter of 2021 was $7.8 million, compared to negative EBITDA of $179.7 million and an adjusted EBITDA of $25.8 million in the same period of the prior year.3

 

Cost of revenues during the first quarter of 2021 was $ 146.2 million, or 80.1 percent of revenues, compared to $181.9 million, or 74.6 percent of revenues during the first quarter of 2020. Cost of revenues declined primarily due to decreases in expenses consistent with lower activity levels and RPC’s ongoing cost reduction initiatives. Cost of revenues as a percentage of revenues increased primarily due to labor and other cost inefficiencies resulting from lower activity levels, as well as increased diesel fuel costs, in the first quarter as compared to the prior year.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $30.6 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $36.5 million in the first quarter of 2020. These expenses decreased due to lower employment costs, primarily the result of cost reduction initiatives during previous quarters. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased from 15.0 percent of revenues in the first quarter of 2020 to 16.8 percent of revenues in the first quarter of 2021. Depreciation and amortization was $17.8 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $39.3 million in the first quarter of the prior year. Depreciation and amortization declined primarily because of RPC’s asset impairment charges recorded in prior quarters.

 

1 Adjusted operating loss is a financial measure which does not conform to GAAP. Additional disclosure regarding this non-GAAP financial measure and its reconciliation to operating loss, the nearest GAAP financial measure, is disclosed in Appendix A to this press release.

2 Adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per share are financial measures which do not conform to GAAP. Additional disclosure regarding these non-GAAP financial measures and their reconciliation to net loss and loss per share, the nearest GAAP financial measures, are disclosed in Appendix B to this press release.

3 Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA are financial measures which do not conform to GAAP. Additional disclosure regarding these non-GAAP financial measures and their reconciliation to net loss, the nearest GAAP financial measure, is disclosed in Appendix C to this press release.

Discussion of Sequential Quarterly Financial Results

 

RPC’s revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 increased by $34.0 million compared to the prior quarter, or 22.9 percent, due to activity increases in most service lines. Cost of revenues during the first quarter of 2021 increased by $28.3 million, or 24.0 percent, due to expenses which increase with higher activity levels such as materials and supplies and employment costs. As a percentage of revenues, cost of revenues increased slightly from 79.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 80.1 percent in the first quarter of 2021 due to increases in maintenance and repair expenses and fuel costs. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $4.6 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to a beneficial forfeiture rate adjustment to stock compensation recorded in the prior quarter. RPC’s operating loss in the first quarter of 2021 was $10.5 million, compared to an operating loss of $21.6 million and an adjusted operating loss of $11.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2020.1 EBITDA for the first quarter of 2021 was $7.8 million compared to negative EBITDA of $2.5 million and adjusted EBITDA of $7.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.3

 

The average U.S. domestic rig count during the first quarter of 2021 was 396, a 49.6 percent decrease compared to the same period in 2020, but a 27.3 percent increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. The average price of oil during the first quarter of 2021 was $58.13 per barrel, a 23.1 percent increase compared to the same period in 2020, and a 36.4 percent increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. The average price of natural gas during the first quarter of 2021 was $3.59 per Mcf, an 87.0 percent increase compared to the same period in 2020, and a 43.6 percent increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.

 

Management Commentary

 

“First quarter revenues increased compared to the prior quarter in all of our major service lines as oil prices increased and customers initiated their annual drilling and completion plans,” stated Richard A. Hubbell, RPC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Equipment and crew utilization increased as we continued to improve efficiencies and streamlined operations. Job mix in several service lines contributed to our sequential revenue growth as well. These activity improvements were partially offset by the extreme winter weather in February in many of our markets, particularly the Permian Basin. This event hurt profitability because of weather-related expenses and inefficiencies arising from a two-week long operational disruption.

 

“As we begin the second quarter, we believe near-term industry activity will be similar to the first quarter, adjusted for the weather impact. Although drilling and completion activities have improved, supported by higher oil prices and customer spending, the oilfield services industry is still faced with overcapacity. We believe pricing for our services will continue to be intensely competitive, and financial returns do not presently support significant growth capital expenditures. Our first quarter capital expenditures of $11.8 million reflect this conservative outlook, and we are pleased that our cash balance at the end of the quarter was $85.4 million, slightly higher than year-end 2020,” concluded Hubbell.

 

Summary of Segment Operating Performance

 

RPC manages two operating segments - Technical Services and Support Services.

First Quarter 2021 Earnings Release

 

Technical Services includes RPC’s oilfield service lines that utilize people and equipment to perform value-added completion, production and maintenance services directly to a customer’s well. These services are generally directed toward improving the flow of oil and natural gas from producing formations or to address well control issues. The Technical Services segment includes pressure pumping, downhole tools and services, coiled tubing, hydraulic workover services, nitrogen, surface pressure control equipment, well control, and fishing tool operations.

 

Support Services includes RPC’s oilfield service lines that provide equipment for customer use or services to assist customer operations. The equipment and services offered include rental of tubulars and related tools, pipe handling, inspection and storage services, and oilfield training services.

 

Technical Services quarterly revenues decreased by 24.2 percent compared to the same period of the prior year due to significantly lower activity and pricing. On a sequential basis, Technical Services revenues increased by 24.2 percent compared to the prior quarter due to increased activity levels in most of the segment’s service lines. Support Services revenues decreased by 38.0 percent during the first quarter compared to the same period of the prior year. On a sequential basis, Support Services revenues increased by 3.2 percent compared to the prior quarter. Technical Services narrowed its operating loss during the first quarter of 2021 compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 due to higher activity levels.

Appendix A

 

RPC, Inc. has used the non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted operating loss in today's earnings release, and anticipates using this non-GAAP financial measure in today's earnings conference call. This measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating loss, or other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

 

Management believes that presenting the financial measure of adjusted operating loss enables us to compare our operating performance consistently over various time periods without regard to non-recurring items.

 

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either 1) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows, or 2) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Set forth below is a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure with its most comparable GAAP measures. This reconciliation also appears on RPC, Inc.'s investor website, which can be found on the Internet at rpc.net.

 

The Reconciliation of Operating Loss to Adjusted Operating Loss, the nearest performance measure prepared in accordance with GAAP, is shown below:

Appendix C

 

RPC has used the non-GAAP financial measures of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) in today's earnings release, and anticipates using EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA in today's earnings conference call. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net loss or other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

 

RPC uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance because it allows us to compare performance consistently over various periods without regard to changes in our capital structure or non-recurring items. We are also required to use EBITDA to report compliance with financial covenants under our revolving credit facility.

 

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either 1) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows, or 2) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Set forth below is a reconciliation of net loss to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, the most comparable GAAP measures.
