Third quarter revenue increased 31% sequentially

Cash from operations of $26.8 million

Successfully completed the acquisition of Great North

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / October 26, 2023 / Dril-Quip, Inc. (NYSE:DRQ), (the "Company" or "Dril-Quip"), a developer, manufacturer and provider of highly engineered equipment, service, and innovative technologies for use in the energy industry, today reported operational and financial results for the third quarter of 2023.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Revenue of $117.2 million increased 31% sequentially and 33% year-over-year
  • Net Loss of $7.0 million decreased $10.5 million sequentially and $20.3 million year-over-year
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $12.4 million increased $3.6 million sequentially and increased $5.3 million year-over-year
  • Gross Margin of 27.0% increased 32 basis points sequentially and increased 154 basis points year-over-year
  • Cash provided by operations of $26.8 million, an increase of $25.8 million year-over-year
  • Free cash flow of $21.4 million increased $20.3 million sequentially and $30.6 million year-over-year
  • Net Bookings of $46.5 million decreased 36% sequentially and 25% year-over-year
  • Remain on track to complete footprint optimization initiatives by year end 2023
  • Awarded wellhead tender with Petrobras supporting their pre-salt well development project worth up to $28 million
  • First delivery of XPak DeTM liner hangers for exploration projects in Africa
  • Participation in a geothermal project in New Zealand through our connector product line
  • Successfully completed the acquisition of Great North which contributed $15.5 million to third quarter revenue

"Our third quarter delivered strong revenue, both from the addition of Great North, as well as growth driven by key deliveries to customers in markets such as Brazil, the Middle East, and West Africa. After closing on the Great North acquisition in early August, results for that business this quarter were in line with expectations, and we are excited about its continued growth trajectory," said Jeff Bird, Dril-Quip's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Free cash flow was very strong this quarter, the highest since 2017, as we improved overall working capital and received a long-awaited U.S. tax refund."

"More recently, capacity constraints in the offshore rig market are introducing headwinds. Multiple customers have delayed product orders and service deliveries due to rig availability delaying drilling schedules, with latest estimates pushing some activity to spring of 2024. This directly impacted the bookings figure in the third quarter, as well as, our mix of Subsea Product and Subsea Service revenue, in comparison to our expectations. The lower Subsea Service revenue ultimately drove lower profitability in the third quarter. Our view that we are in the early innings of a multi-year offshore upcycle and that Dril-Quip's portfolio is well-positioned for growth remains unchanged. We look forward to updating investors on our 2024 outlook and updates to our strategic initiatives on our year-end earnings conference call in February 2024."

In conjunction with today's release, the Company posted a new investor presentation entitled "Q3 2023 Investor Presentation" to its website, www.dril-quip.com, on the "Events & Presentations" page under the Investors tab.

Operational and Financial Results

Revenue, Cost of Sales and Gross Operating Margin

Consolidated revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was $117.2 million, up $27.6 million from the second quarter of 2023 and up $29.1 million compared to the third quarter of 2022. The increase in revenue was primarily driven by the acquisition of Great North in the third quarter which contributed $15.5 million in the quarter and an increase of $11.3 million in our Subsea Products segment as key customer deliveries were made in growing international offshore markets. Well Construction revenues increased $16.2 million sequentially, from $21.4 million to $37.6 million, primarily driven by the acquisition of Great North as well as large bore liner hanger growth in offshore Brazil and West Africa. Subsea Services segment revenue increased 6% year-over-year to $23.7 million, and Subsea Products segment revenue increased 15% compared to the prior year to $55.9 million.

Cost of sales for the third quarter of 2023 was $85.6 million, an increase of $19.9 million sequentially and year-over year. Gross operating margin for the third quarter of 2023 was 27.0%, up from 26.7% for the second quarter of 2023 and up from 25.4% year-over-year. Gross margins increased year-over-year, driven by incremental leverage on higher sales in Well Construction and Subsea Products.

Selling, General, Administrative, and Engineering Expenses

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the third quarter of 2023 were $27.0 million, an increase of $4.9 million compared to the second quarter of 2023 and an increase of $4.6 million year-over-year. SG&A increased sequentially and year-over-year primarily due the addition of Great North expenses and an increase to the bad debt reserve due to higher activity. Engineering and product development expenses were $3.1 million for the third quarter of 2023, a decrease of $0.1 million from the second quarter of 2023 and an increase of $0.4 million year-over-year. The year-over-year increase is attributed to increased testing and qualification activities related to specific international customer requirements.

Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow

For the third quarter of 2023, the Company reported net loss of $7.0 million, or a loss of $0.21 per share. This compares to net income of $3.5 million, or $0.10 per share, for the second quarter of 2023 and a net income of $13.3 million, or $0.39 per share, in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $12.4 million for the third quarter of 2023 compared to $8.8 million for the second quarter 2023 and $7.0 million in the prior year period. The increase in adjusted EBITDA sequentially and from the year ago period can be attributed to increased revenues and the acquisition of Great North in the third quarter of 2023.

Cash provided by operations was $26.8 million for the third quarter of 2023, an improvement of $15.5 million sequentially and $25.8 million year-over-year. Free cash flow was $21.4 million for the third quarter of 2023, an improvement of $20.3million sequentially and $30.6 million year-over-year. The improvement was primarily driven by the receipt of an U.S. tax refund of $16.8 million and improvements to Days Sales Outstanding in the third quarter, partially offset by an increase in finished goods inventory in anticipation of future growth. Capital expenditures in the third quarter of 2023 were $5.4 million, the majority of which was related to rental tools bound for work already secured. The company utilized $92.3M to complete the acquisition of Great North in the third quarter, including transaction and integration-related costs and customary working capital adjustments. Ending cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2023, were $190.0 million. The Company expects free cash flow to be positive in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Share Repurchases

During the third quarter of 2023, the Company did not make any share repurchases. 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 its 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.
