Operational and Financial Results

Revenue, Cost of Sales and Gross Operating Margin

Consolidated revenue for the first quarter of 2024 was $110.3 million, down $16.0 million from the fourth quarter of 2023 and up $19.4 million compared to the first quarter of 2023. The decrease in revenue sequentially was primarily driven by lower Subsea Product connector and surface equipment sales and a delayed Subsea Service project in Europe. The increase compared to the first quarter of 2023 was driven by the addition of Great North, which contributed $25.1 million in the quarter, partially offset by lower Subsea Product sales.

Cost of sales for the first quarter of 2024 was $78.4 million, a decrease of $13.3 million sequentially and an increase of $12.9 million year-over year. Gross operating margin for the first quarter of 2024 was 28.9%, up from 27.4% for the fourth quarter of 2023 and 27.9% year-over-year. Gross margins increased both sequentially and year-over-year, driven by favorable product mix within Subsea Products and Well Construction.

Selling, General, Administrative, and Engineering & Other Expenses

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the first quarter of 2024 were $30.0 million, an increase of $0.2 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2023 and an increase of $7.4 million year-over-year. SG&A increased sequentially primarily due to higher personnel related expense and professional services. SG&A increased year-over-year primarily due the addition of Great North expenses and higher personnel related costs.

Engineering and product development expenses were $3.7 million for the first quarter of 2024, an increase of $0.8 million from the fourth quarter of 2023 and an increase of $0.3 million year-over-year. The sequential and year-over-year increase is attributed to increased testing and qualifications related to specific international customer requirements.

During the quarter, the Company recognized $19.0 million of expense related to the previously announced merger with Innovex.

Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow

For the first quarter of 2024, the Company reported net loss of $20.0 million, or a loss of $0.58 per share. This compares to net income of $1.8 million, or $0.05 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2023 and a net income of $2.3 million, or $0.07 per share, in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $10.2 million for the first quarter of 2024, a decrease of $6.4 million sequentially, and an increase of $1.3 million from one year ago.

Cash used in operations was $4.1 million for the first quarter of 2024, a decrease of $30.2 million sequentially and an increase of $48.8 million compared to first quarter of 2023. Free cash flow was a use of $8.9 million for the first quarter of 2024, a decrease of $23.4 million sequentially and an improvement of $49.5 million compared to the first quarter of 2023.

Capital expenditures in the first quarter of 2024 were $4.8 million, the majority of which were related to investments in manufacturing equipment and rental tools bound for work already secured.

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.
