Nuverra Announces Third Quarter And Year-To-Date 2017 Results

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuverra Environmental Solutions, Inc. (NYSE American: NES) ("Nuverra," the "Company," "we," "us" or "our") today announced financial and operating results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017.  The Company emerged from chapter 11 bankruptcy on August 7, 2017, or the "Effective Date," and elected to apply fresh start accounting as of July 31, 2017 to coincide with the timing of the normal accounting period close.  The Company evaluated the events between July 31, 2017 and August 7, 2017 and concluded that the use of an accounting convenience date of July 31, 2017 did not have a material impact on the results of operations or financial position.  References to "Successor" relate to the financial position and results of operations of the reorganized Company subsequent to July 31, 2017, while references to "Predecessor" refer to the financial position and results of operations of the Company on and prior to July 31, 2017.  The Successor and Predecessor GAAP results for the applicable periods are presented in the tables following this release.

For discussion purposes, the Company has combined the Successor and Predecessor periods to derive combined results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.  However, because of various adjustments to the condensed consolidated financial statements in connection with the application of fresh start accounting, the results of operations for the Successor period are not comparable to those of the Predecessor period.  The Company believes that, subject to consideration of the impact of fresh start accounting, combining the results of the Successor and Predecessor periods provides meaningful information about the financial results of the Company, including revenues and costs that assist a reader in understanding the financial results for the applicable periods.

SUMMARY OF QUARTERLY RESULTS

  • Third quarter revenue was $48.9 million, an increase of approximately 17.7%, or $7.3 million, when compared with revenue of $41.5 million in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, were $63.7 million, or a 23.5% increase when compared with $51.6 million in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, for the third quarter was $18.5 million, compared with a loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, of $15.3 million in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the third quarter was $6.8 million, an increase of $4.7 million compared with adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2017.

THIRD QUARTER 2017 RESULTS

Third quarter revenue was $48.9 million, an increase of $7.3 million, or 17.7%, from $41.5 million in the second quarter of 2017.  In the third quarter of 2016, the Company reported revenue of $35.4 million.  Due to oil prices becoming more stable in 2017, customer demand for our services has increased in all divisions as compared to both the second quarter of 2017 and the same period in the prior year.

Total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, were $63.7 million, a 23.5% increase compared with total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, of $51.6 million in the second quarter of 2017. The Company reported total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, of $47.5 million in the third quarter of 2016. The increase in total costs and expenses, adjusted for special items, is primarily due the 17.7% increase in revenue and an increase in depreciation and amortization expense as a result of the fresh start accounting adjustments.

For the third quarter of 2017, the Company reported a net loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, of $18.5 million. Special items in the third quarter primarily included the gain resulting from the discharge of debt and the application of fresh start accounting upon emergence from chapter 11.  Additionally, special items included the loss on the sale of underutilized assets, non-recurring legal and professional fees, stock-based compensation expense, as well as $2.4 million in long-lived asset impairment charges for assets classified as held-for-sale primarily in the Rocky Mountain division.  This compares with a loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, of $15.3 million in the second quarter of 2017. The Company reported a loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, of $26.3 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the third quarter was $6.8 million, an increase of $4.7 million compared with $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2017.  Third quarter adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations was 14.0%, compared with 5.1% in the second quarter of 2017.  The Company reported adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $3.4 million and an adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations of 9.7% in the third quarter of 2016.

YEAR-TO-DATE RESULTS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 ("YTD")

YTD revenue was $129.6 million, an increase of $13.2 million from $116.4 million for the same period in 2016.  Due to oil prices becoming more stable in 2017, customer demand for our services has increased in all divisions as compared to the same period in the prior year.

YTD net loss from continuing operations, adjusted for special items, was $61.8 million compared with a loss of $82.1 million for the same period in 2016.  YTD special items primarily included the gain resulting from the discharge of debt and the application of fresh start accounting upon emergence from chapter 11.  Additionally, special items included the loss on the sale of underutilized assets, stock-based compensation expense, a $3.9 million gain on the change in fair value of the derivative warrant liability, and $2.4 million in long-lived asset impairment charges for assets classified as held-for-sale primarily in the Rocky Mountain division.

YTD adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $8.2 million, an increase of 54.2% when compared with the same period in 2016. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the 2017 YTD period was 6.3%, compared with 4.6% in 2016.

CASH FLOW AND LIQUIDITY

Net cash used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $22.0 million, while asset sales from continuing operations net of capital expenditures provided cash of $1.2 million.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, free cash flow (defined as net cash used in or provided by operating activities, less proceeds received from sales of property, plant and equipment, net of purchases of property, plant and equipment) was negative at $(20.9) million, compared with negative free cash flow of $(12.0) million during the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Total liquidity as of September 30, 2017, consisting primarily of available borrowings under the Successor senior secured revolving credit facility, was $16.6 million.

As of September 30, 2017, total debt outstanding was $40.2 million, consisting of $14.8 million under the Successor first lien term loan, $21.0 million under the Successor second lien term loan, and $4.4 million of capital leases for vehicle financings.

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.

For illustrative purposes, the Company has combined the Successor and Predecessor periods to derive combined results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 for these non-GAAP reconciliations.  The combination was generated by addition of comparable financial statement line item captions.  However, because of various adjustments to the condensed consolidated financial statements in connection with the application of fresh start accounting, including asset valuation adjustments and liability adjustments, the results of operations for the Successor period are not comparable to those of the Predecessor period.  The financial information preceding these non-GAAP reconciliations provides the Successor and Predecessor GAAP results for the applicable periods.  The Company believes that subject to consideration of the impact of fresh start accounting, combining the results of the Successor and Predecessor periods provides meaningful information about the financial results of the Company, including revenues and costs that assist a reader in understanding the financial results for the applicable periods.
