HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 29, 2018-- Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) today announced third quarter 2018 revenue of $267 million, a decrease of $7 million, or 3%, from the second quarter 2018. Net loss for the quarter was $3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $15 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2018. Excluding $6 million, or $0.06 per share of special items, adjusted net income was $0.03 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2018. See Tables 1-5 for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

Segment Results

Completions segment revenue was $119 million, a decrease of $8 million, or 6% sequentially, primarily due to lower completions activity in North America. New inbound orders in the third quarter were $115 million, a decrease of $7 million, or 5%, from the second quarter. The Completions segment designs and manufactures products for the well construction, completion, stimulation and intervention markets.

Production & Infrastructure segment revenue was $95 million, an 8% increase from the second quarter 2018, on higher sales of valves and well site production equipment, primarily in the U.S. New inbound orders in the third quarter were $100 million, a 1% increase sequentially. The Production & Infrastructure segment manufactures land well site production equipment, desalination refinery equipment, and a wide range of valves for energy, industrial and mining customers.

Drilling & Subsea segment revenue was $55 million, a decrease of $5 million, or 9%, from the second quarter 2018. New inbound orders in the third quarter were $60 million, a 33% decrease from the second quarter due to the large subsea capital equipment order received last quarter, partially offset by an 11% increase in orders in our Drilling product line. Drilling & Subsea operations focus primarily on manufactured equipment and consumable products for global drilling and subsea contractors.

Review and Outlook

Prady Iyyanki, Forum’s President and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, "Forum was on a strong growth trajectory until the third quarter when we were negatively impacted by the slowdown in U.S. completions activity. Despite these challenges, our team executed well during the quarter, as revenue was down only 3% and adjusted EBITDA increased sequentially.

"Although we are experiencing near term headwinds from the completions slowdown and tariffs, the long term market fundamentals for our product lines remain intact. We have benefited from the growth in North America onshore drilling and completions activity over the last several quarters, and we are now tendering for significant international orders as the broader recovery begins to unfold. Our balanced portfolio of consumable and capital equipment serving global markets across the well cycle positions us nicely to achieve continued long term growth.

"Our free cash flow was negative $4 million, a sequential improvement of $8 million. We ended the quarter with approximately $246 million of total liquidity. I am confident that we will deliver positive free cash flow in the fourth quarter and for the second half of the year."

Recent Events

Forum received orders in the third quarter of 2018 for approximately 275,000 horsepower of J-Mac hydraulic fracturing power ends.

Forum received a $12 million order for well site production equipment for the Marcellus basin.

Subsequent to the third quarter, Forum acquired Global Heat Transfer ("GHT") for $52 million in cash consideration and an earn-out arrangement under which additional cash consideration will be paid if certain conditions are met in 2019 and 2020. GHT engineers and manufactures premium industrial heat exchanger and cooling systems used primarily on hydraulic fracturing equipment as well as applications in other industries.

(1) U.S. tax reform significantly changes U.S. corporate income tax laws by, among other things, reducing the U.S. corporate income tax rate to 21% starting in 2018 and creating a territorial tax system with a one-time mandatory tax on previously deferred earnings of non-U.S. subsidiaries. As a result, the Company recorded a provisional charge of $10.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2017. Based on guidance subsequently issued by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service ("IRS"), the Company updated our provisional estimate and recorded a $15.6 million benefit in the nine months ended September 30, 2018 to reflect the revised provisional estimate. The impacts related to U.S. tax reform remain provisional in nature and are subject to further adjustment as additional guidance is provided by the U.S. IRS regarding the application of the new U.S. corporate income tax laws.

(1) The book-to-bill ratio is calculated by dividing the dollar value of orders received in a given period by the revenue earned in that same period. The Company believes that this ratio is useful to investors because it provides an indication of whether the demand for our products, in the markets in which the Company operates, is strengthening or declining. A ratio of greater than one is indicative of improving market demand, while a ratio of less than one would suggest weakening demand. In addition, the Company believes the book-to-bill ratio provides more meaningful insight into future revenues for our business than other measures, such as order backlog, because the majority of the Company's products are activity based consumable items or shorter cycle capital equipment, neither of which are typically ordered by customers far in advance.

(1) The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income and adjusted Diluted EPS is useful to investors because (i) EBITDA is an appropriate measure of evaluating the Company's operating performance and liquidity that reflects the resources available for strategic opportunities including, among others, investing in the business, strengthening the balance sheet, repurchasing the Company's securities and making strategic acquisitions and (ii) each of adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income and adjusted Diluted EPS is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the excluded items to be outside of the Company's normal operating results. In addition, EBITDA is a widely used benchmark in the investment community. See the attached separate schedule for the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

 

(2) The difference between the fair value of our interest in Ashtead and the book value of the underlying net assets resulted in a basis difference non-operating gain, which was allocated to fixed assets, intangible assets and goodwill based on their respective fair values as of the transaction date. This amount represents the amortization of the basis difference gain associated with intangible assets and property, plant and equipment which is included in equity earnings (loss) over the estimated life of the respective assets.

 

(3) Foreign exchange, net primarily relates to cash and receivables denominated in U.S. dollars by some of our non-U.S. subsidiaries that report in a local currency, and therefore the loss has no economic impact in dollar terms.

(1) The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income and adjusted Diluted EPS is useful to the Company's investors because (i) EBITDA is an appropriate measure of evaluating the Company's operating performance and liquidity that reflects the resources available for strategic opportunities including, among others, investing in the business, strengthening the balance sheet, repurchasing the Company's securities and making strategic acquisitions and (ii) each of adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income and adjusted Diluted EPS is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the excluded items to be outside of the Company's normal operating results. In addition, EBITDA is a widely used benchmark in the investment community. See the attached separate schedule for the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

 

(2) The difference between the fair value of our interest in Ashtead and the book value of the underlying net assets resulted in a basis difference non-operating gain, which was allocated to fixed assets, intangible assets and goodwill based on their respective fair values as of the transaction date. This amount represents the amortization of the basis difference gain associated with intangible assets and property, plant and equipment which is included in equity earnings (loss) over the estimated life of the respective assets.

 

(3) Foreign exchange, net primarily relates to cash and receivables denominated in U.S. dollars by some of our non-U.S. subsidiaries that report in a local currency, and therefore the loss has no economic impact in dollar terms.
