Ranger Energy Services, Inc. Announces Q3 2020 Results

·16-min read

Ranger Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: RNGR) ("Ranger" or the "Company") announced today its results for its fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2020.

– Net loss and Adjusted EBITDA1 improved 36% vs Q2

– Net debt reduction of $4 million along with an increase in liquidity

– Momentum grew across Q3 with monthly sequential revenue and EBITDA increases

Consolidated Financial Highlights

Revenues increased $3.9 million, or 13%, to $34.6 million in Q3, from $30.7 million in Q2. Revenue increases took place in the High Specification Rigs and Completion and Other Services segments.

Net loss decreased $3.2 million, from a net loss of $8.9 million in Q2, to a net loss of $5.7 million in Q3. The decrease in the net loss was largely driven by increased revenues and a reduction in depreciation and general and administrative expenses, partially offset by an increase in cost of services.

Adjusted EBITDA1 increased $1.2 million from $3.2 million in Q2 to $4.4 million in Q3.

"Adjusted EBITDA" is not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). A Non-GAAP supporting schedule is included with the statements and schedules attached to this press release and can also be found on the Company's website at: www.rangerenergy.com.

CEO Comments

"This has proven to be a successful quarter for Ranger. Q3 appears to have marked the bottom of this most recent downturn with US land drilling rig and frac spread counts down 15% and 10%, respectively, as compared to Q2. However, we performed counter to these data points delivering sequential increases in revenue, EBITDA and margin.

I am very proud of the job that our team continues to deliver. Their efforts in providing excellent services to our outstanding customer base, while demonstrating disciplined cost control, again led to top performing results in a very challenging market.

While the current market conditions continue to challenge the sustainability of many OFS companies, Ranger's performance shows that we are clearly on a different path; every month of Q3 yielded improving consolidated results, our balance sheet remains strong with a modest $20 million of term debt, and our liquidity position is up approximately 40% from the late Q2 low point. This desirable set of metrics allows us to focus on our customers, our performance and our strategic options further fueling Ranger's growth and success.

It is definitely too early to point to a broad market recovery, however within our segments and select basins we are experiencing significant positive trends. These improvements include month over month increases in High Specification Rig hours and rates, an increase in active wireline units, and additional contract opportunities from customers scheduled to add frac crews in late Q4 or early 2021. Also, our Processing Solutions group has been growing a significant backlog of bid opportunities. While we still have a long road ahead of us, we are optimistic about the future and have now moved into the fourth quarter with great momentum.

In regards to our strategic initiatives, our efficient operating model continues to prove successful as demonstrated through our consistent margin performance across 2020. Our focus on top-tier clients is yielding a growing high-quality revenue stream with additional contract opportunities ahead of us. Finally, while the acquisition and merger environment remains opportunity rich, we continue to maintain a disciplined approach; focusing on delivering clear value to our shareholders while minimizing any risk to our strong balance sheet."

Business Segment Financial Results

High Specification Rigs

High Specification Rigs segment revenue increased by $3.1 million to $14.5 million in Q3 from $11.4 million in Q2 2020. The increase in revenues was driven by a 23% increase in rig hours to 30,200 hours in Q3 from 24,600 hours in Q2. The hourly average rig rate increased $17, or 4%, to $480 in Q3 from $463 in Q2 on customer mix shift.

Operating loss decreased by $1.5 million to a loss of $2.4 million in Q3 from a loss of $3.9 million in Q2. Adjusted EBITDA increased 41%, or $0.7 million, to $2.4 million in Q3 from $1.7 million in Q2. The decrease in operating loss and increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily attributable to an increase in revenues, partially offset by increased cost of services. The operating loss was further impacted by a reduction of depreciation expense.

Completion and Other Services

Completion and Other Services segment revenue increased by $1.2 million to $18.9 million in Q3 from $17.7 million in Q2 2020. The increase in revenue for the quarter is attributable to the wireline business.

Operating income increased $0.4 million to $2.2 million in Q3 from $1.8 million in Q2. Adjusted EBITDA increased 9%, or $0.4 million, to $5.0 million in Q3 from $4.6 million in Q2. The increase in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was driven by increased revenues, partially offset by increased cost of services related to wireline services.

Processing Solutions

Processing Solutions revenue decreased $0.4 million to $1.2 million in Q3 from $1.6 million in Q2 2020. The decrease was driven primarily by a reduction in service revenue along with reduced MRU utilization, within the segment.

Operating income increased $0.3 million to income of $0.2 million in Q3 from a loss of $0.1 million in Q2. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 25%, or $0.3 million, to $0.9 million in Q3 from $1.2 million in Q2. The increase in operating income was driven by reductions in depreciation expense.

Liquidity

We ended the quarter with $13.8 million of liquidity, consisting of $10.4 million of capacity available on our revolving credit facility and $3.4 million of cash. The Q3 cash ending balance of $3.4 million compares to $6.0 million at the end of Q2 2020. Currently, our liquidity approximated $14.0 million.

Debt

We ended Q3 with aggregate net debt of $24.4 million, a reduction of $3.6 million as compared to $28.0 million at the end of Q2.

We had an outstanding draw on our revolving credit facility of $3.0 million at the end of Q3 compared to $5.0 million at the end of Q2. During the quarter, we made aggregate payments of $5.3 million on the principal credit facility balance, partially offset by borrowings of $3.3 million.

We had an outstanding balance on our Encina Financing Agreement of $22.7 million at the end of Q2 and we made aggregate payments of $2.5 million during Q3, leaving a principal balance of $20.2 million at the end of Q3.

Capital Expenditures

Total capital expenditures recorded during the quarter were $0.6 million. High Specification Rigs segment incurred $0.2 million in capital expenditures related to miscellaneous equipment, while Completion and Other Services and Processing Solutions segments both incurred $0.1 million each. Maintenance capital expense across all segments was $0.2 million for the quarter.

RANGER ENERGY SERVICES, INC.
SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(UNAUDITED)

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, acquisition-related and severance costs, impairment of goodwill, gain or loss on sale of assets and certain other items that we do not view as indicative of our ongoing performance.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure because it allows for an effective evaluation of our operating performance when compared to our peers, without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. We exclude the items listed above from net income or loss in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss determined in accordance with GAAP. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are reflected in Adjusted EBITDA. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that our results will be unaffected by the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be identical to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The following tables present reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA, our most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The following tables are a reconciliation of net income or loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, in millions:
