NEWPARK RESOURCES REPORTS SECOND QUARTER 2022 RESULTS’ | MENAFN.COM

(MENAFN– PR Newswire)

Company reports net loss of ($0.08) per share; Adjusted net income of $0.01 per diluted share

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE: NR ) (‘Newpark’ or the ‘Company’) today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2022. Total revenues for the second quarter of 2022 were $194.1 million compared to $176.4 million for the first quarter of 2022 and $142.2 million for the second quarter of 2021. Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $7.8 million, or ($0.08) per share, compared to net income of $2.5 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2022, and a net loss of $6.0 million, or ($0.07) per share, for the second quarter of 2021.

Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2022 was $1.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share. Second quarter 2022 results include $9.1 million of pre-tax charges ($8.8 million after-tax, $0.09 per share), including $8.9 million for the Industrial Blending segment primarily related to the impairment of assets, as well as exit and other costs associated with the Conroe, Texas industrial blending and warehouse facility. As previously announced, the Company shut down the Industrial Blending operations in March 2022 and is divesting of the assets.

Matthew Lanigan, Newpark’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, ‘Our second quarter performance demonstrated progress in both of our businesses, with strong execution and improving market fundamentals contributing to a 10% sequential increase in revenues and continued improvement in EBITDA within our core business activities. Consolidated revenues were $194 million for the second quarter of 2022, delivering Adjusted EBITDA of $13.3 million.

‘The Industrial Solutions segment revenues improved by 38% sequentially to $49 million in the second quarter, benefitting from $19 million in second quarter product sales, reflective of robust demand from the utilities sector, along with the benefit of a shift in delivery of certain first quarter orders into April. Rental and service revenues declined slightly from the prior quarter, as the strong start to the quarter was offset by the impact from the dry and warm weather pattern in the Southern U.S., as well as unanticipated delays in customer projects associated with various supply chain disruptions. The Industrial Solutions segment delivered $9.8 million of operating income and EBITDA of $15.1 million for the second quarter of 2022.’

Lanigan continued, ‘The Fluids Systems segment revenues improved by 3% sequentially, as the seasonal pullback in Canada through Spring break-up was more than offset by solid revenue growth in U.S. land markets and a $5 million increase in the Gulf of Mexico. Outside of North America, revenues improved slightly to $49 million in the second quarter, with improvements from Asia Pacific and the start-up of the previously-disclosed project in Cyprus being mostly offset by lower activity in Kuwait and parts of Europe, as well as the impact of the strengthening U.S. dollar. Operating income and EBITDA for the Fluids Systems segment declined to $0.4 million and $4.3 million, respectively, with profitability negatively impacted by Spring break-up in Canada, a softer product mix, as well as an elevated operating loss in the Gulf of Mexico. The second quarter Gulf of Mexico result reflects a combination of incremental costs incurred to meet a tight deepwater project timeline, with unrelated operational issues ultimately leading the customer to delay and reduce the scope of the planned drilling project, and return unused inventory. The operating loss from our Gulf of Mexico operations increased approximately $1 million in the second quarter, overshadowing the solid progress we’re making in other areas.

‘Regarding cash flows, operating activities used cash of $26 million in the second quarter, primarily reflecting an increase in working capital. Inventories used $24 million of cash in the quarter, reflecting ongoing inflation in raw material costs, activity-driven increases, and increased vendor prepayments on purchases, as well as higher levels of contingency stocks to ensure our ability to deliver for our customers as drilling activity recovers. Our U.S. mineral grinding business and Gulf of Mexico operations contributed $10 million of the sequential increase in inventories. Receivables also used $11 million of cash in the quarter, as the impact from the higher revenues was partially offset by a meaningful improvement in receivable DSO’s,’ added Lanigan. ‘Looking ahead, we expect revenues and income to strengthen and a return to positive operating cash flow generation in the third quarter, primarily benefitting from the stabilizing supply chain environment, the continued ramp-up of deferred projects in the EMEA region, and the seasonal recovery in Canada. We expect the robust market outlook across all facets of the energy sector, along with our ongoing portfolio actions to strengthen our Fluids Systems business, will provide a foundation for sustainable free cash flow generation over the longer-term. Additionally, our announced divestiture actions, as well as efforts to optimize investments within the Gulf of Mexico, provides the opportunity for more than $70 million of cash generation in the coming months, which can be redeployed to reduce our debt, accelerate investment in Industrial Solutions growth, and return value to shareholders.’

U.S. Mineral Grinding Business Divestiture Update

As previously disclosed, in February 2022, the Company’s Board of Directors approved management’s plan to explore strategic options for the U.S. mineral grinding business. During the second quarter of 2022, the Company initiated a formal sales process, led by our third-party advisor PPHB. While market and other inherent uncertainties remain that could impact the timing or completion of a sale transaction, we currently anticipate completing a divestiture transaction in the fourth quarter of 2022. As of June 30, 2022, the U.S. mineral grinding business had $53 million of net capital employed, including $31 million of net working capital. The U.S. mineral grinding business is reported within the Fluids Systems segment.

Segment Change and Results

Our Industrial Blending segment (previously aggregated within the Industrial Solutions segment) began operations in 2020 and supported industrial end-markets, including the production of disinfectants and industrial cleaning products. As part of the previously announced exit plan approved by our Board of Directors in February 2022, we completed the wind down of the Industrial Blending business in the first quarter of 2022 and are currently pursuing the sale of the industrial blending and warehouse facility and related equipment located in Conroe, Texas. Beginning in the second quarter of 2022, the assets and operating results associated with our Industrial Blending operations have been reported as a separate segment for all periods presented.

The Industrial Solutions segment generated revenues of $48.9 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $35.4 million for the first quarter of 2022 and $43.3 million for the second quarter of 2021. Segment operating income was $9.8 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $6.4 million for the first quarter of 2022 and $11.3 million for the second quarter of 2021. Industrial Solutions operating income for the second quarter of 2021 included a $1.0 million gain related to a legal settlement.

The Fluids Systems segment generated revenues of $145.3 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $141.0 million for the first quarter of 2022 and $97.1 million for the second quarter of 2021. Segment operating income was $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to operating income of $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2022 and an operating loss of $6.5 million for the second quarter of 2021.

The Industrial Blending segment generated no revenues in 2022, and $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2021. Segment operating loss was $8.9 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to an operating loss of $0.9 million for the first quarter of 2022 and an operating loss of $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2021. The Industrial Blending operating loss for the second quarter of 2022 includes a $7.9 million non-cash charge for the impairment of the long-lived assets as well as exit and other costs related to the ongoing process to sell these assets.

Newpark Resources, Inc. Non-GAAP Reconciliations (Unaudited)

To help understand the Company’s financial performance, the Company has supplemented its financial results that it provides in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (‘GAAP’) with non-GAAP financial measures.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors, securities analysts and other parties in the evaluation of our performance and liquidity with that of other companies in our industry.

In addition, our incentive compensation plan measures performance based on our consolidated EBITDA, along with other factors. The methods we use to produce these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from methods used by other companies. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
