Nuverra Announces First Quarter 2017 Results

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuverra Environmental Solutions, Inc. (OTCPK: NESCQ) ("Nuverra", the "Company", "we", "us" or "our") today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

SUMMARY OF QUARTERLY RESULTS

  • First quarter revenue was $ 39.2 million, an increase of approximately 9.6%, or $3.4 million, when compared with revenue of $35.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • Total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, were $53.0 million, or a 10.6% increase when compared with $48.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • Loss from continuing operations for the first quarter was $36.0 million, or a loss of $0.24 per diluted share, compared with a loss from continuing operations of $61.3 million, or a loss of $0.45 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the first quarter was $(0.8) million, a decrease of $3.3 million compared with adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

FIRST QUARTER 2017 RESULTS

First quarter revenue was $39.2 million, an increase of $3.4 million, or 9.6%, from $35.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Although rig counts are beginning to increase in 2017 compared to those operating during the same period in 2016, there is a lag in revenue relative to newly added rigs, reactivating equipment, and rehiring drivers.  Additionally, revenues in early 2016 were still influenced by higher rig counts at the end of 2015.  These factors have led to lower non-rental revenue as compared to the same period in the prior year. In the first quarter of 2016, the Company reported revenue of $47.0 million.

Total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, were $53.0 million, a 10.6% increase compared with total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, of $48.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The Company reported total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, of $61.3 million in the first quarter of 2016.

On a year-over-year comparison with the first quarter of 2016, the $8.3 million reduction in total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, was primarily attributable to:

  • A $5.0 million decrease in direct operating expenses, including a decrease in payroll and payroll related expenses from a 22.9% year-over-year reduction in headcount;
  • A $3.0 million decrease in depreciation and amortization expenses due to reductions in capital spending and the sale of  underutilized or non-core assets as a result of lower activities by our customers; and
  • A $0.3 million decrease in general and administrative expenses.

For the first quarter of 2017, the Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $36.0 million, or a loss of $0.24 per diluted share. Special items in the first quarter totaled approximately $8.1 million and included $5.7 million for capital re-organization costs and a $1.6 million loss on the change in fair value of the derivative warrant liability.  Additionally, special items included net losses on sales of underutilized assets, non-recurring legal and professional fees, and stock-based compensation expense.  Excluding the impact of these special items, first quarter 2017 adjusted loss from continuing operations was $27.9 million, or a loss of $0.18 per diluted share.  This compares with a loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, of $26.0 million, or a loss of $0.19 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2016. The Company reported a loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, of $26.4 million, or a loss of $0.95 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the first quarter was $(0.8) million, a decrease of $3.3 million compared with $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.  First quarter adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations was (2.0)%, compared with 7.1% in the fourth quarter of 2016.  The Company reported adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $1.6 million and an adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations of 3.3% in the first quarter of 2016.

CASH FLOW AND LIQUIDITY

Net cash used in operating activities from continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $7.3 million, while capital expenditures net of asset sales from continuing operations used cash of $0.7 million.  For the three months ended March 31, 2017, free cash flow (defined as net cash used in or provided by operating activities, less purchases of property, plant and equipment net of proceeds received from sales of property, plant and equipment) was negative at $7.9 million, compared with positive free cash flow of $2.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2016.

As of March 31, 2017, total debt outstanding was $500.8 million, including $40.4 million of 9.875% Senior Notes due 2018 (the "2018 Notes"), $355.6 million of 12.5%/10.0% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2021 (the "2021 Notes"), $62.7 million under a term loan (the "Term Loan"), $31.2 million under our asset-based revolving credit facility (the "ABL Facility"), and $10.9 million in capital leases and notes payable.  The Company has subsequently commenced a restructuring under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the "Bankruptcy Code") that is expected to significantly reduce the Company's debt, as described in more detail in a press release and Form 8-K filing dated May 1, 2017.

The maturity date of our ABL Facility occurred on March 31, 2017, and, as a result, all commitments under the ABL Facility have been terminated, the lenders under the ABL Facility have no obligation to provide additional loans or otherwise extend credit under the ABL Facility, and all obligations under the ABL Facility are due and payable. As we have not repaid all outstanding obligations under the ABL Facility, we are in default under the ABL Facility and the lenders under the ABL Facility are entitled to exercise their rights and remedies. In addition, the default under the ABL Facility constituted an event of cross default under the Term Loan and the indentures governing our 2018 Notes and 2021 Notes, and the filing of the Plan (defined herein) constituted an event of default that accelerated the Company's obligations under the ABL Facility, Term Loan, indenture governing the 2018 Notes, indenture governing the 2021 Notes, and note issued in connection with the acquisition of the remaining 49% interest in Appalachian Water Services, LLC (the "AWS Note").  We do not have sufficient liquidity to repay the obligations under the ABL Facility, Term Loan, indentures governing our 2018 Notes and 2021 Notes, or the AWS Note; however, the filing of the Plan automatically stayed any efforts to enforce such payment obligations under the Company's debt instruments. 

As previously disclosed, in order to address our liquidity issues and provide for a restructuring of our indebtedness to improve our long-term capital structure, on April 9, 2017, the Company and its subsidiaries (collectively, the "Nuverra Parties") entered into a Restructuring Support Agreement, which was amended on April 20, 2017 and April 28, 2017 (the "Restructuring Support Agreement") with holders of 100% of the existing Term Loan debt and approximately 86% of the Company's 2021 Notes (the "Supporting Noteholders").  Under the Restructuring Support Agreement, the Supporting Noteholders agreed, subject to certain terms and conditions, to support a financial restructuring of the Nuverra Parties (the "Restructuring") pursuant to prepackaged plans of reorganization (together, the "Plan") in a case commenced under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Among other terms and conditions, the Restructuring Support Agreement provided for interim financing to us prior to the filing of the Plan, debtor in possession financing during the chapter 11 proceeding of $44.0 million, a $150.0 million rights offering and, if necessary, exit financing to fund required disbursements under the Plan.  We anticipate that the Restructuring will provide us with sufficient liquidity to continue our operations; however, there can be no assurances to that effect. 

On May 1, 2017, the Nuverra Parties filed voluntary petitions under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Bankruptcy Court") to pursue the Plan.  The Nuverra Parties' chapter 11 cases are being jointly administered under the caption In re Nuverra Environmental Solutions, Inc., et al. (Case Nos. 17-10949 through 1710962). No trustee has been appointed, and the Nuverra Parties will continue to operate their businesses as "debtors in possession" under the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and orders of the Bankruptcy Court.  We expect to continue our operations without interruption during the pendency of the chapter 11 cases, but there can be no assurances. 

On May 2, 2017, to assure ordinary course operations, the Bankruptcy Court entered an interim order (the "DIP Order") approving on an interim basis a variety of "first day" motions seeking various relief and authorizing the Nuverra Parties to maintain their operations in the ordinary course.  The DIP Order, among other things, authorized the Nuverra Parties to (i) enter into, execute, and deliver a debtor-in-possession revolving credit facility (the "DIP Revolving Facility") and a debtor-in-possession term loan agreement (the "DIP Term Loan Agreement"), and (ii) borrow, on an interim basis, $2.5 million under the DIP Term Loan Agreement, $10.0 million under the DIP Revolving Facility in the aggregate, and $7.5 million under the DIP Term Loan Agreement in the aggregate (including the $2.5 million initial advance made on the May 3, 2017) during the interim period before the Bankruptcy Court considers entry of the DIP Order on a final basis. The Bankruptcy Court set a hearing for May 31, 2017 to consider approval of the DIP Order on a final basis.

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 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.
