SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuverra Environmental Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: NESC) ("Nuverra" or the "Company") today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Summary of Results

  • First-quarter revenue was $47.0 million, a decrease of approximately 31.6%, or $21.7 million, when compared with revenue of $68.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • Loss from continuing operations for the first quarter was $27.3 million, or a loss of $0.98 per diluted share, compared with a loss from continuing operations of $34.4 million, or a loss of $1.24 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • 48.0% reduction in total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, compared with first quarter of 2015, including $5.6 million in lower selling, general and administrative expenses.
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the first quarter was $1.6 million, a decrease of approximately 81.0% compared with adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $8.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • The Company generated net free cash flow in the first quarter of $2.6 million.
  • Total liquidity as of March 31, 2016 was $13.8 million.

Mark D. Johnsrud, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We were pleased to continue to generate positive adjusted EBITDA and positive net free cash flow in the first quarter, despite the influence of lower overall customer drilling and completion activities and continued pricing pressures.

"We have strengthened the Company by successfully completing our previously announced bond exchange and closing on a new $24.0 million Term Loan. With the support of our noteholders and lenders, we completed this important first step of our plan in mid-April and reduced total cash interest payments by more than $44.0 million over the next two years. With shareholder support to authorize additional shares of common stock at our upcoming special meeting, we will be a step closer to finalizing our debt restructuring plan as we continue to provide safe, efficient and economical services to our customers."

The Company closed its private exchange offer (the "Exchange Offer") on April 15, 2016 by delivering to tendering holders of the Company's 9.875% 2018 Senior Notes due 2018 (the "2018 Notes") $327.2 million in aggregate principal amount of new Senior Second-Lien Notes due 2021 (the "2021 Notes") and $0.9 million in shares of common stock converted at $0.32 to those tendering holders who elected to exchange for common stock. Additionally, the Company closed on a new $24.0 million principal amount first-lien term loan (the "Term Loan") due 2018 as the first phase of a comprehensive debt restructuring plan.

Mr. Johnsrud concluded, "The current environment requires that we remain focused on operating efficiently, proactively managing costs and expenses, and adapting to changing market conditions. Throughout the first quarter and into the second quarter, we have taken further steps to reduce total costs and expenses, including additional headcount reductions and further decreases to selling, general and administrative expenses.

"We believe these accomplishments in the current market environment speak to the strength of Nuverra as a leading service provider that has demonstrated resilience and long-term strength."

First-Quarter 2016 Results

First-quarter revenue was $47.0 million, a decrease of $21.7 million, or 31.6%, from $68.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The decrease was attributable to lower overall drilling and completion activities coupled with continued pricing pressures in all divisions. In the first quarter of 2015, the Company reported revenue of $119.1 million.

The Company continued to reduce costs and expenses in the first quarter as a result of decreasing activities and proactive cost-management initiatives. Total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, were $61.3 million, a 21.9% decrease compared with total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, of $78.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The Company reported total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, of $117.9 million in the first quarter of 2015.

On a year-over-year comparison with the first quarter of 2015, reductions in total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, have included:

  • Approximately $25.2 million in lower payroll and related expenses, reflecting a 46% year-over-year reduction in headcount;
  • Approximately $5.9 million in lower fuel expense;
  • Approximately $5.6 million, or 47.4%, in lower SG&A expenses, including $3.2 million in lower corporate SG&A expenses;
  • Approximately $1.6 million in lower depreciation and amortization expenses; and,
  • The balance related to reductions in all other direct operating expenses.

For the first quarter of 2016, the Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $27.3 million, or a loss of $0.98 per diluted share. Special items in the first quarter totaled approximately $0.9 million and included gains on sale for the disposal of certain transportation-related assets, offset by severance-related charges; stock-based compensation expense; non-routine legal expenses associated with the Company's debt restructuring; the write off of a portion of unamortized deferred financing costs associated with the amendment to the asset-based credit facility (the "ABL Credit Facility"); and a reduction in the fair value of contingent consideration. Excluding the impact of these special items, first-quarter loss from continuing operations was $26.4 million, or a loss of $0.95 per diluted share. This compares with a loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, of $21.8 million, or a loss of $0.79 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2015. The Company reported a loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, of $11.3 million, or a loss of $0.41 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the first quarter was $1.6 million, a decrease of $6.7 million, or 81.0%, compared with adjusted EBITDA of $8.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The margin decline was due primarily to lower overall levels of customer drilling and completion activities, as well as rate reductions driven by a highly competitive pricing environment. First-quarter adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations was 3.3%, compared with an adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.0% in the fourth quarter of 2015. The Company reported adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $18.7 million and an adjusted EBITDA margin of 15.7% in the first quarter of 2015.

Cash and Liquidity

Net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations during the quarter ended March 31, 2016 was $2.6 million, with net cash capital expenditures from continuing operations of $28,000. Free cash flow for the first quarter was $2.6 million, compared with $30.6 million in the first quarter of 2015.

In conjunction with the Company's previously announced Restructuring Support Agreement (the "RSA"), the Company amended its ABL Credit Facility with new terms that included a reduction in total commitments to $100 million, a new minimum EBITDA financial covenant and daily cash sweeps of collection accounts with the ability to immediately draw on available borrowings under the ABL Credit Facility. Total liquidity as of March 31, 2016, consisting almost entirely of available borrowings under the ABL Credit Facility, was $13.8 million.

As of March 31, 2016, total debt outstanding was $479.5 million, including $400 million of 2018 Notes, $62.3 million outstanding under the Company's ABL Credit Facility, and $17.2 million in capital leases and notes payable. During the first quarter, a periodic borrowing base redetermination resulted in an additional $18.0 million reduction of availability. The Company made cumulative payments during the first quarter of $52.0 million to reduce total debt outstanding under the ABL Credit Facility. The Company remains current with all payment obligations due on its outstanding debt and is in compliance with all related covenants.

After giving effect to the Company's bond exchange, total debt outstanding as of April 15, 2016 was $469.1 million, including $327.2 million of 2021 Notes, $40.4 million of 2018 Notes, $60.9 million outstanding under the Credit Facility, $24.0 million under the First-Lien Term Loan, and approximately $16.6 million in capital leases and notes payable.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS

 (In thousands)

(Unaudited)


This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that 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 statements of operations or balance sheets of the Company; or 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. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the attached financial tables.


These non-GAAP financial measures are provided because management of the Company uses these financial measures in maintaining and evaluating the Company's ongoing financial results and trends. Management uses this non-GAAP information as an indicator of business results, and evaluates overall performance with respect to such indicators. Management believes that excluding items such as acquisition expenses, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, asset impairments, restructuring charges, expenses related to litigation and resolution of lawsuits, and other charges, which may or may not be non-recurring, among other items that are inconsistent in amount and frequency (as with acquisition expenses), or determined pursuant to complex formulas that incorporate factors, such as market volatility, that are beyond our control (as with stock-based compensation), for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of the Company's current operating performance and comparisons to the past and future operating performance. The Company believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures such as EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted net income (loss) per share,  in addition to related GAAP financial measures, provides investors with greater transparency to the information used by the Company's management. These non-GAAP financial measures are not substitutes for measures of performance or liquidity calculated in accordance with GAAP and may not necessarily be indicative of the Company's liquidity or ability to fund cash needs. Not all companies calculate non-GAAP financial measures in the same manner, and our presentation may not be comparable to the presentations of other companies.
