RPC, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

 

ATLANTA, July 28, 2021 - RPC, Inc. (NYSE: RES) today announced its unaudited results for the second quarter ended June 30, 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 June 30, 2021, RPC generated revenues of $188.8 million, an increase of 111.4 percent compared to $89.3 million in the second quarter of 2020, which was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Operating loss for the second quarter of 2021 was $1.2 million compared to an operating loss of $37.5 million and an adjusted operating loss of $35.9 million in the second quarter of the prior year.1 Net loss for the second quarter of 2021 was $726 thousand, or $0.00 per share, compared to a net loss of $25.1 million, or $0.12 loss per share in second quarter of the prior year. In the second quarter of 2020 the adjusted net loss was $22.3 million, or $0.10 adjusted loss per share.2 Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the second quarter of 2021 was $17.3 million, compared to EBITDA of negative $19.4 million and an adjusted EBITDA of negative $17.8 million in the same period of the prior year.3

 

Cost of revenues during the second quarter of 2021 was $145.8 million, or 77.2 percent of revenues, compared to $80.0 million, or 89.6 percent of revenues during the second quarter of 2020. Cost of revenues increased primarily due to increases in expenses consistent with higher activity levels, as well as higher fuel costs. Cost of revenues as a percentage of revenues decreased due to the leverage of higher revenues over certain fixed direct costs.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $29.4 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $28.8 million in the second quarter of 2020. These expenses reflect higher bad debt expense and expenses consistent with higher activity levels partially offset by lower employment costs consistent with RPC’s cost control efforts. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased from 32.2 percent of revenues in the second quarter of 2020 to 15.6 percent of revenues in the second quarter of 2021 due to cost leverage on higher revenues. Depreciation and amortization was $17.9 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $19.6 million in the second quarter of the prior year. Depreciation and amortization declined primarily because capital expenditures have remained relatively low during the last several quarters.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, revenues increased 11.5 percent to $371.4 million compared to $333.1 million for the same period last year. Net loss for the six-month period was $10.4 million, or $0.05 loss per share, compared to a net loss of $185.5 million, or $0.87 loss per share in the same period last year. The adjusted net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $22.3 million, or $0.10 adjusted loss per share. 2

 

Discussion of Sequential Quarterly Financial Results

 

RPC’s revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 increased by $6.1 million, or 3.4 percent, compared to the prior quarter due to activity increases in most of our service lines. Cost of revenues during the second quarter of 2021 decreased slightly to $145.8 million. As a percentage of revenues, cost of revenues decreased from 80.1 percent in the first quarter of 2021 to 77.2 percent in the second quarter of 2021 due to a favorable job mix in several service lines as well as the positive impact of the CARES Act employee retention tax credit recognized during the quarter. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the prior quarter, also due to the impact of the CARES Act employee retention tax credit. RPC’s operating loss in the second quarter of 2021 was $1.2 million, compared to an operating loss of $10.5 million for the first quarter of 2021. EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021 was $17.3 million compared to EBITDA of $7.8 million in the first quarter of 20213.

 

The average U.S. domestic rig count during the second quarter of 2021 was 453, a 15.6 percent increase compared to the same period in 2020, and a 14.4 percent increase compared to the first quarter of 2021. The average price of oil during the second quarter of 2021 was $66.58 per barrel, a 143.7 percent increase compared to the same period in 2020, and a 14.5 percent increase compared to the first quarter of 2021. The average price of natural gas during the second quarter of 2021 was $2.98 per Mcf, a 74.3 percent increase compared to the same period in 2020, but a 17.0 percent decrease compared to the first quarter of 2021.

 

Management Commentary

 

“Second quarter revenues improved sequentially as drilling and completion activities continued to increase due to stronger oil prices and an improving economy,” stated Richard A. Hubbell, RPC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “These overall activity improvements were partially offset by several significant customer-related operational delays and extreme rain experienced in the Permian Basin during the quarter. As a result, pressure pumping revenues declined slightly during the second quarter. In addition, revenues in our nitrogen service line declined sequentially because of the large amount of nonrecurring weather-related remedial processing plant and pipeline work this service line performed during the first quarter.

 

“We begin the third quarter with high customer demand with indications that our customer base is responding to this year’s higher commodity prices with higher drilling and completion plans during the third and fourth quarters. We recently activated an additional horizontal pressure pumping fleet to meet this demand and expect higher activity in this service line during the second half of the year. Also, we have had success passing through cost increases, such as labor and fuel. This view of our near-term operating environment is tempered by our industry’s struggle to achieve net pricing improvements, which limits our financial returns. Our second quarter capital expenditures of $14.1 million reflect a continued conservative outlook, and we are pleased that our cash balance at the end of the quarter was $121.0 million, significantly higher than year-end 2020,” concluded Hubbell.

Summary of Segment Operating Performance

 

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

 

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 increased by 118.7 percent compared to the same period of the prior year due to significantly higher activity levels. On a sequential basis, Technical Services revenues increased by 2.0 percent compared to the prior quarter. Technical Services generated an operating profit of $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2021 due to higher activity levels and leverage of higher revenues over costs that are relatively fixed during the short term, compared to an operating loss of $5.8 million in the first quarter of 2021. Support Services revenues increased by 44.1 percent during the second quarter compared to the same period of the prior year. On a sequential basis, Support Services revenues increased by 26.8 percent compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to activity increases in our rental tools service line.

Certain statements and information included in this press release constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including all statements that look forward in time or express management’s beliefs, expectations or hopes. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of RPC to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements, including our expectations that our customer base is responding to this year’s higher commodity prices with active drilling and completion plans during the third and fourth quarters; our expectation that we will experience higher activity levels in our Technical Services service line during the second half of the year; and our belief that our industry is unable to achieve net pricing improvements. Such risks include changes in general global business and economic conditions, including fluctuations in prices of oil and natural gas; risks associated with collections of our accounts receivable from customers experiencing challenging business conditions; drilling activity and rig count; risks of reduced availability or increased costs of both labor and raw materials used in providing our services; the impact on our operations due to changes in regulatory and environmental laws; turmoil in the financial markets and the potential difficulty to fund our capital needs; the actions of OPEC+, which could impact drilling activity; adverse weather conditions in oil and gas producing regions; competition in the oil and gas industry; an inability to implement price increases; risks of international operations; and reliance upon large customers.

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.

Second Quarter 2021 Earnings Release

 

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. This reconciliation also appears on RPC's investor website, which can be found on the Internet at rpc.net.
