Dril-Quip, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2022 Results

HOUSTON, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dril-Quip, Inc. (NYSE: DRQ), (the “Company” or “Dril-Quip”) today reported operational and financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

Results for the second quarter of 2022 included:

  • Revenue of $94.0 million for the second quarter of 2022, an increase of $10.8 million from the first quarter of 2022 driven by higher subsea equipment and downhole products and services revenue;
  • A net loss of $5.6 million, or a $0.16 loss per share, an improvement of $3.4 million, or $0.10 per share compared to the first quarter of 2022, due to improved gross profit and foreign exchange benefits partially offset by higher restructuring charges;
  • Generated adjusted EBITDA of $9.3 million, or 9.9% of revenue; an increase of $6.2 million from the first quarter of 2022;
  • Second quarter net cash used by operating activities of $9.3 million and free cash flow of negative $10.6 million, inclusive of $1.4 million of capital expenditures;
  • Booked $49.6 million of new orders during the second quarter of 2022 net of $7.1 million of cancellations and adjustments;
  • Repurchased $3.8 million of shares at an average price of $24.49 during the second quarter of 2022. Year-to-date repurchases through the third quarter of 2022 total approximately $21 million; and
  • Announced Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions reduction target of 50% by the year 2030.

Jeff Bird, Dril-Quip’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our second quarter results reflect the improving offshore drilling market as well as our commitment to controlling costs and improving margins. Second quarter revenue was up approximately 13% sequentially reflecting strength in our shorter cycle businesses as quick return projects are completed, customers utilize existing inventory, and we start to see rigs come back online. Downhole Tools led this with a record quarter and broad growth across all geographies. Subsea Services also benefited from strong demand on rework and recertification as rigs start to come back online. Bookings for our Subsea Products slowed from the prior quarter as operators continue to evaluate projects in an uncertain demand environment with historically high inflation. Many of these projects are targeting second half decisions and are reflected in our outlook for full year bookings.   We continue to expect revenue growth of 10% for the full year 2022 compared to 2021.

“We believe the foundation of the strong product-line focused teams that we began forming in early 2022 is bearing fruit by streamlining customer focus, eliminating excess costs and improving efficiency.   We also continue to progress on our footprint rationalization plan, including executing a purchase and sale agreement for the forge facilities at our Houston, Texas campus. We expect this transaction to close in the third quarter and anticipate reaching agreements on the two remaining properties by year-end. For all three transactions, we expect the combined net proceeds to be in the $40 to $50 million range. We plan to use a portion of the proceeds from these real estate sales to make investments in our manufacturing capabilities to lower costs and improve productivity in the coming years.

“Additionally, in June we announced our decarbonization targets in alignment with the ambitions of the Paris Agreement. We are targeting the reduction of Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions by more than 50% between 2021 and the target year 2030. By partnering with our customers and key suppliers, we will further encourage environmental stewardship through the broader energy industry. Our strategic focus on innovation and peer collaborations support these targets as evidenced by our ground-breaking e-Series products that help our customers reduce their carbon footprint and by our collaboration with Aker Solutions to provide optimal carbon capture, utilization and storage solutions for our customers. I am proud of the work our team has done to assess our carbon footprint and identify meaningful steps we can take to reduce our global emissions.

“Looking to the second half of 2022, we believe our previously set financial targets remain achievable. We are focused on year-over-year improvements in our bookings, revenue and profitability and are aligning our activities and structure accordingly. Ongoing success in these areas would enable us the opportunity to generate free cash flow to invest in growth and return cash to shareholders through share repurchases. Our continuous improvement initiatives, clear strategic vision and strong balance sheet will lead to a stronger, nimbler Dril-Quip in the coming quarters and years for the benefit of our shareholders and stakeholders.”

Operational and Financial Results

Revenue, Cost of Sales and Gross Operating Margin

Consolidated revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $94.0 million, up $10.8 million from the first quarter of 2022 and up $13.2 million compared to the second quarter of 2021. The sequential increase was primarily a result of higher subsea and downhole tool product volumes, primarily subsea wellheads. Service revenues in both the subsea equipment and downhole tools also increased. The increase in revenue year-over-year was driven by higher leasing revenues across most regions related to improved subsea rental tool utilization due to increased customer activity. Subsea wellhead product sales volumes also increased year-over-year as U.S. Gulf of Mexico activity increased.

Cost of sales for the second quarter of 2022 was $69.7 million, an increase of $5.7 million from the first quarter of 2022 and an increase of $8.1 million compared to the prior year. Gross operating margin for the second quarter of 2022 was 25.9%, an increase from 23.0% in the first quarter of 2022 and an increase from 23.8% in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in gross margins sequentially and year-over-year was attributed to increased absorption of fixed overhead from higher product revenues, an increase in service revenues and favorable product mix.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the second quarter of 2022 were $22.5 million, an increase of $0.1 million compared to the first quarter of 2022 and a decrease of $7.1 million compared to the second quarter of 2021. The year-over-year decrease in SG&A is primarily attributable to lower legal expenses in connection with the FMC Technologies, Inc. lawsuit and cost reduction initiatives.   Engineering and product development expenses were down $1.0 million sequentially and year-over-year due to lower research and development expenses as a result of the completion of investments in certain strategic projects. We are in the process of reprioritizing new research and development initiatives.

Net Loss, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow

For the second quarter of 2022, the Company reported a net loss of $5.6 million, or a $0.16 loss per share. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $9.3 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $3.2 million for the first quarter 2022, representing incremental margins of 57% quarter-over-quarter. The improvement in adjusted EBITDA sequentially can be attributed to increased revenues across all product and service lines and favorable product mix. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2022 was up $6.7 million compared to the second quarter of 2021. The increase in adjusted EBITDA year-over-year can be mostly attributed to increased revenues, reductions in administrative and engineering expense and non-recurrence of the adverse impact of the forge facility lease cancellation.

Net cash used by operations was $9.3 million and free cash flow was a negative $10.6 million for the second quarter of 2022. Capital expenditures in the second quarter of 2022 were approximately $1.4 million, down approximately $0.7 million compared to the first quarter of 2022. The Company expects that capital expenditures will increase throughout the remainder of 2022 for rentals tools to support upcoming projects in Latin America and investments in information technology and manufacturing equipment.

Share Repurchases

For the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, the Company purchased 157,101 shares under its share repurchase plan at an average price of $24.49 per share, totaling $3.8 million, and retired such shares. As of July 27, 2022, the company year-to-date has purchased 888,197 shares at an average price of $23.35 per share, totaling $20.8 million and retired such shares. The Company has approximately $103 million remaining of the current authorization by the Board of Directors. The Company continues to evaluate the amount and timing of its share repurchases as part of the Company’s overall capital allocation strategy.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Diluted EPS, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS are defined as net income (loss) and earnings per share, respectively, excluding the impact of foreign currency gains or losses as well as other significant non-cash items and certain charges and credits.

Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less cash used in the purchase of property, plant and equipment.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding income taxes, interest income and expense, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation, non-cash gains or losses from foreign currency exchange rate changes as well as other significant non-cash items and other adjustments for certain charges and credits.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures enable it to evaluate and compare more effectively the results of our operations period over period and identify operating trends by removing the effect of its capital structure from its operating structure. In addition, the Company believes that these measures are supplemental measurement tools used by analysts and investors to help evaluate overall operating performance, ability to pursue and service possible debt opportunities and make future capital expenditures. Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow do not represent funds available for our discretionary use and are not intended to represent or to be used as a substitute for net income or net cash provided by operating activities, as measured under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

See “Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for additional information concerning non-GAAP financial information, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial information presented in this press release to the most directly comparable financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial information supplements and should be read together with, and is not an alternative or substitute for, the Company’s financial results reported in accordance with GAAP. Because non-GAAP financial information is not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures.
