TETRA Technologies, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2020 Resul

|Aug 4|magazine84 min read

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- TETRA Technologies, Inc. ("TETRA" or the "Company") (NYSE:TTI) today announced second quarter 2020 results.

Second quarter 2020 revenue of $192 million, decreased 14% from the first quarter of 2020 compared to a 64% decline in US onshore rig activity and a 26% decline in international rig activity. Net loss before discontinued operations for the second quarter was $34.3 million, inclusive of $18.1 million of non-recurring charges and expenses. This compares to a net loss before discontinued operations of $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2020, inclusive of $8.1 million of non-recurring charges and expenses. Net loss per share attributable to TETRA stockholders in the second quarter was $0.15.  Excluding the non-recurring charges and expenses, the net loss per share attributable to TETRA stockholders was $0.09.  Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations was $35.3 million and compares to $47.8 million in the first quarter. Consolidated cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter was $38 million, compared to $22 million in the first quarter of 2020.  TETRA only cash from operating activities was $33 million, while TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations was $31 million, compared to $4.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. The improvements in consolidated cash provided by operating activities and TETRA only adjusted free cash flow reflects monetization of working capital.

Financial Highlights

  • Completion Fluids & Products income before taxes was $16.0 million, or 22.4% of revenue, while Adjusted EBITDA was $18.3 million, or 25.7% of revenue.
  • Water & Flowback Services loss before taxes was $8.4 million, while Adjusted EBITDA remained positive at $400,000 despite a 57% sequential decline in revenue and a 64% decline in the US onshore rig count.
  • TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations was $31.2 million in the second quarter, an improvement of $26.8 million from the first quarter of 2020 reflecting improvements in working capital.
  • Consolidated cash from operating activities was $60 million in the first half of the year while TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations through the first half of 2020 was $36 million, a year-over-year improvement of $68 million compared to the first half of 2019.

This press release includes the following financial measures that are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"): Adjusted earnings per share attributable to TETRA stockholders, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percent of revenue) on consolidated and segment basis, Adjusted income (loss) before tax, TETRA-only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations, and net debt.  Please see Schedules E-K for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Brady Murphy, TETRA's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our second quarter results reflect exceptional execution by our management team and employees.  By working safely under extraordinary conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic and while continuing to service our customer's requirements, we were also able to deliver strong financial results given the historical decline in drilling and completion activity during the quarter.  On a consolidated basis we were able to improve Adjusted EBITDA margins compared to the second quarter of last year while also generating stronger free cash flows.  Our Completion Fluids and Products segment and Compression Segment maintained strong Adjusted EBITDA margins relative to the first quarter while both improved year on year.  Water Management and Flowback Services maintained slightly positive Adjusted EBITDA.  Despite the rapid decline in activity, the financial stress that our customers are encountering, and restructuring costs that we incurred, we generated $38 million of consolidated cash from operations and $31 million of TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from operating activities, both very significant improvements over the first quarter of this year and second quarter of last year.

"Completion Fluids & Products segment second quarter income before tax margin was 22.4% while Adjusted EBITDA margin was 25.7%.  This is the fifth consecutive quarter that Adjusted EBITDA margins for this segment have exceeded our internal management target of 20% despite very difficult market conditions.   We continue to see the benefit from our market diversification as approximately half of the second quarter revenue came from industrial chemicals. Our European Chemicals business ended the quarter with its highest Adjusted EBITDA since the second quarter of 2015.  Revenue for this segment declined by only 5% in contrast to the dramatic decline in overall operator spend and activity during the quarter, reflecting the resiliency of our revenue stream.  The second quarter also benefited from strong Gulf of Mexico completion fluids activity, which was up sequentially and from the same quarter of last year.

"Water & Flowback Services segment second quarter revenue of $24.7 million decreased 57% sequentially compared to an estimated 80% reduction in active frac crews. We were able to maintain a slightly positive Adjusted EBITDA through exceptional cost management, market share gains and customer adoption of our latest technology.  In the second quarter, our revenue per active frac crew has more than doubled in the two years since we first deployed our Integrated Water Management strategy.  Our BlueLinxTM automation solution, which allows us to remotely and efficiently deliver services to our customers with less field staff, is now deployed on all of our Integrated Water management projects.  We also maintained full utilization of our SandStormTM sand separation technology through most of the quarter.

"Second quarter 2020 Compression segment performance exceeded internal expectations with a loss before taxes of $23 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $26.3 million, up 1% from the first quarter.  Compression Services margins improved sequentially by 300 basis points to 54.9% - the highest in CSI Compressco's history driven by aggressive cost reductions.  Utilization declined from 86.5% at the end of the first quarter of 2020 to 82.1% at the end of the second quarter.  Approximately 15% of our US domestic fleet was on standby during the quarter as customers shut in production given the low oil prices. The majority of the shut-ins were from two of our largest customers, both supermajors, that have the balance sheet to shut in production in anticipation of higher oil prices.  Starting August 1st, we began returning to service most of units on standby with one of those two customers.  CSI Compressco announced yesterday that the Midland fabrication real estate and buildings had been sold for gross proceeds of $17 million in early July.  Additionally, CSI Compressco announced that it expects to receive $9 million in cash proceeds in the third quarter from the sale of idle compressor units.  This $26 million of gross proceeds will further strengthen CSI Compressco's balance sheet.

"Going in to this historic downturn, we knew that by executing the strategies we have worked on for the past two years and by taking quick and decisive cost reduction actions beginning at the executive management level and then throughout the organization, that we would come out the other side of this pandemic very well positioned.  I'm very pleased to say that we are on track to achieve that objective.  Strong execution and the diversity of our end markets, including industrial chemicals, offshore, international and a technology differentiated North America water and flowback business, has allowed us to keep Adjusted EBITDA positive and to generate free cash flow in a very difficult environment.

A summary of key financial metrics for the second quarter are as follows:

Operating Segments

Completion Fluids & Products Division
Completion Fluids & Products revenue was $71.3 million in the second quarter of 2020, a decrease of 5% from the first quarter of 2020, primarily driven by decreased international activity. Completion Fluids & Products income before taxes was $16.0 million in the second quarter (22.4% of revenue). Completion Fluids & Products adjusted income before taxes was $16.5 million (23.1% of revenue). Adjusted EBITDA of $18.3 million (25.7% of revenue - a 300 basis point sequential decline) decreased by $3.3 million sequentially.  Excluding the CS Neptune© sale in the second quarter of 2019, our Completion Fluids & Products business Adjusted EBITDA margins in the second quarter of 2020 outperformed the second quarter of 2019 by over 500 basis points.

Water & Flowback Services Division
Water & Flowback Services second quarter 2020 revenue of $24.7 million decreased 57% from the first quarter of 2020, driven by the drastic reduction in U.S. land activity.  Water & Flowback Services loss before tax was $8.4 million, primarily due to disruptions in several basins as customers have drastically reduced spending. Adjusted EBITDA decreased $6.4 million sequentially to $400,000. The Division's Adjusted EBITDA remained positive despite the significant reduction in revenue.  Our investments and focus on technology and automation and our move towards integrated projects strategies is helping us increase market share and maintain activity with our customers in a rapidly changing market.

Compression Division
Second quarter Compression revenue increased 7% from the first quarter of 2020 driven by higher equipment sales. Compression Services gross margins were 54.9%, a 300 basis points increase from the first quarter of 2020. Overall fleet utilization was 82.1%, down from 86.5% at the end of the first quarter. As of June 30, 2020, total active operating horsepower was 967,505, a sequential decrease of 65,751 horsepower. Net loss before taxes was $23.0 million, $10.2 million worse than the first quarter.  The second quarter loss included $15.7 million of non-recurring or unusual items, primarily related to impairment of idle compression assets and related inventory, costs related to the closure of our Midland fabrication facility, and expenses related to the unsecured bonds exchange that was completed in the second quarter.  Second quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA of $26.3 million increased 1% from the first quarter of 2020 primarily due to strong aftermarket services margins. 

Free Cash Flow and Balance Sheet
During the second quarter of 2020, consolidated cash provided by operations was $38 million, a $16 million improvement sequentially.  TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations was $31 million, a $27 million improvement over the first quarter of 2020 and a $28 million improvement over the second quarter of 2019. Cash generation was due to improvements in working capital.  TETRA only liquidity at the end of second quarter 2020 improved $29 million from the same period last year, positioning the Company to safely maneuver through this downturn. TETRA only liquidity is defined as unrestricted cash on hand plus availability under our revolving credit facility.

Consolidated total debt was $858 million while consolidated net debt was $787 million, with TETRA only net debt of $156 million. At the end of the second quarter TETRA Only non-restricted cash was $50 million.  Schedules D and H distinguish consolidated cash and debt for TETRA and for TETRA excluding CSI Compressco.  TETRA's debt agreements do not include any cross defaults or cross guarantees for CSI Compressco's debt.

Non-recurring charges and expenses items
Non-recurring charges and expenses, including discontinued operations, incurred in the second quarter, as detailed on Schedule F, include the following:

  • $9.0 million non-cash impairment expense for compression fixed assets and inventory
  • $4.8 million of debt financing fees on the recently completed CSI Compressco bond exchange
  • $3.4 million of restructuring expenses and severance
  • $0.9 million of other expenses

Historically the Company has used a normalized 21% effective tax rate to reflect normalized EPS and normalized net income on Schedule F. Given TETRA's net operating losses of over $350 million, management does not believe TETRA will incur U.S. income taxes in the near future and has discontinued the use of that adjustment to report normalized earnings.

Conference Call
TETRA will host a conference call to discuss these results today, August 4, 2020, at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time. The phone number for the call is 1-888-347-5303. The conference call will also be available by live audio webcast and may be accessed through the Company's website at www.tetratec.com.

Schedule E: Statement Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, this press release may include the following non-GAAP financial measures for the Company: net debt; adjusted consolidated and segment income (loss) before taxes and special charges; adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share before discontinued operations; consolidated and segment adjusted EBITDA; net income (loss) before taxes, Adjusted income (loss) before tax, Adjusted income (loss) before tax as a % of revenue, TETRA only adjusted free cash flow and TETRA only free cash flow from continuing operations; and segment adjusted EBITDA as a percent of revenue ("Adjusted EBITDA margin"). The following schedules provide reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, as more fully discussed in the Company's financial statements and filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Management believes that the exclusion of the special charges from the historical results of operations enables management to evaluate more effectively the Company's operations over the prior periods and to identify operating trends that could be obscured by the excluded items.

Adjusted income (loss) before taxes (and adjusted income (loss) before taxes as a percent of revenue) is defined as the Company's (or the Segment's) income (loss) before taxes excluding certain special or other charges (or credits). Adjusted income (loss) before taxes (and adjusted income (loss) before taxes as a percent of revenue) is used by management as a supplemental financial measure to assess financial performance, without regard to charges or credits that are considered by management to be outside of its normal operations.

Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share before discontinued operations is defined as the Company's diluted earnings (loss) per share excluding certain special or other charges (or credits). Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share is used by management as a supplemental financial measure to assess financial performance, without regard to charges or credits that are considered by management to be outside of its normal operations.

Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations (and Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations as a percent of revenue) is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, impairments and certain non-cash charges and non-recurring adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA before discontinued operations (and Adjusted EBITDA margin) is used by management as a supplemental financial measure to assess the financial performance of the Company's assets, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis and to assess the Company's ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures.

Adjusted income before tax is defined as earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, impairments and certain non-cash charges and non-recurring adjustments. Adjusted income before tax (and Adjusted income before tax as a percent of revenue or Adjusted income before tax margin which is Adjusted income before tax divided by revenue) is used by management as a supplemental financial measure to assess the financial performance of the Company's normalized profitability while excluding any unusual, non-recurring items and tax benefits or detriment.

TETRA only adjusted free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that the Company defines as cash from TETRA's operations, less capital expenditures net of sales proceeds and cost of equipment sold and including cash distributions to TETRA from CSI Compressco LP. TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations is defined as TETRA only adjusted free cash flow less discontinued operations EBITDA and discontinued operations capital expenditures. Management uses this supplemental financial measure to:

  • assess the Company's ability to retire debt;
  • evaluate the capacity of the Company to further invest and grow; and
  • to measure the performance of the Company as compared to its peer group.

TETRA only adjusted free cash flow and TETRA only adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations do not necessarily imply residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures, as they exclude cash requirements for debt service or other non-discretionary expenditures that are not deducted.

TETRA net debt is defined as the sum of the carrying value of long-term and short-term debt on its consolidated balance sheet, less cash, excluding restricted cash on the consolidated balance sheet and excluding the debt and cash of CSI Compressco LP. Management views TETRA net debt as a measure of TETRA's ability to reduce debt, add to cash balances, pay dividends, repurchase stock, and fund investing and financing activities.

Schedule H: Non-GAAP Reconciliation of TETRA Net Debt (Unaudited)

The cash and debt positions of TETRA and CSI Compressco LP as of June 30, 2020, are shown below. TETRA and CSI Compressco LP's debt agreements are distinct and separate with no cross-default provisions.
