Ranger Energy Services, Inc. Announces Q4 2020 Results

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ranger Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: RNGR) (“Ranger” or the “Company”) announced today its results for its fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2020.

  • Overall revenues improved 20%, or $7 million vs Q3
  • High Spec Rig revenues grew 50% on increased utilization and pricing strength
  • Despite 2020’s challenges, Ranger returned $26 million of operating cash flow across the year while reducing long-term debt by nearly 50%

Consolidated Financial Highlights

Revenues increased $6.9 million, or 20%, to $41.5 million in Q4, from $34.6 million in Q3. Revenue increases took place in the High Specification Rigs segment.

Net loss increased $1.0 million, from a net loss of $5.7 million in Q3, to a net loss of $6.7 million in Q4. The increase in the net loss was largely driven by increased cost of services.

Adjusted EBITDA1 decreased $1.2 million from $4.4 million in Q3 to $3.2 million in Q4. The current quarter’s $3.2 million of EBITDA is inclusive of $1.3 million of make-ready expenses for 18 rigs associated with deployments for our highest tier customers.

CEO Comments

“After two straight quarters of severely depressed activity, Q4 marked the first real signs of an industry turnaround. Commodity prices have responded to the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, global energy demand is improving and a stronger commitment to capital discipline by U.S. shale operators is emerging.

I am proud of the fact that during the 2020 downturn Ranger remained committed to our long-term strategies of driving efficiencies, cost management, safety and service, as we high graded our client list. It is these efforts that allowed us to generate significant, positive EBITDA each quarter through this challenging year and further decrease our modest amount of long-term debt by nearly 50%, while significantly increasing our blue-chip customer market share.

Our fourth quarter High Specification Rig results are tangible examples of the improving industry dynamics and Ranger’s current premium position in this recovering market. During the quarter we experienced a significantly higher demand for our rig services, with current activities focused on returning wells back online or maintaining production levels.

While we are pleased to see the health of our industry improving and our strategic efforts continuing to pay dividends, the speed of our activity ramp did lead to significant reactivation costs during the quarter.

These expenditures negatively impacted fourth quarter’s margins, but were one-time in nature as they were focused on the preparation of rigs for long-term top-tier clients and the hiring or reinstatement of a significant number of employees. Also, to a lesser extent, our High Spec Rig results were also impacted by customer consolidation and COVID-19 related interruptions. However, in spite of these negative impacts, we are pleased with this segment’s strong revenue and EBITDA growth.

Within our Completion & Other Services segment, our Permian wireline business experienced year-end budget exhaustion interruptions by a material customer in mid-November, and COVID-19 related delays on the startup of new simul-frac operations with another customer. Again, these issues are expected to be one-time in nature.

The current trends of the market are setting up for a much more favorable 2021. Oil prices and U.S. land drilling activity are up 30% and 15%, respectively, since the beginning of 2021. More operators are adopting simul-frac operations leading to greater completion intensity, and maintenance activity has started the year strong. But the key element for the improvement of the Oil Field Services (‘OFS’) space will be the ability to recapture some level of pricing. In order to achieve this, pricing discipline must return to the market and further OFS consolidation needs to occur, Ranger is committed to participating in both.”

Business Segment Financial Results

High Specification Rigs

High Specification Rigs segment revenue increased by $7.2 million to $21.7 million in Q4 from $14.5 million in Q3 2020. The increase in revenues was driven by a 43% increase in rig hours to 43,100 hours in Q4 from 30,200 hours in Q3. The hourly average rig rate increased $23, or 5%, to $503 in Q4 from $480 in Q3 on customer mix shift.

Operating loss increased by $0.2 million to a loss of $2.6 million in Q4 from a loss of $2.4 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA increased 21%, or $0.5 million, to $2.9 million in Q4 from $2.4 million in Q3. The increase in operating losses was attributable to an increase in cost of services, including a loss on sale of equipment during the quarter. These increased costs were partially offset by increased revenues. Adjusted EBITDA benefited from the increased revenue which was only partially offset by the increased cost of services. Note that these results include $1.3 million of reactivation costs incurred during the quarter.

Completion and Other Services

Completion and Other Services segment revenue decreased by $0.3 million to $18.6 million in Q4 from $18.9 million in Q3 2020. The decrease was primarily attributable to the wireline business which saw some early year-end shut-downs on budget exhaustion along with ongoing pricing pressure.

Operating income decreased $0.5 million to income of $1.7 million in Q4 from income of $2.2 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 28%, or $1.4 million, to $3.6 million in Q4 from $5.0 million in Q3. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was driven by decreased revenues and increased cost of services, partially offset by a reduction in depreciation expense and was attributable to our wireline business.

Processing Solutions

Processing Solutions revenue remained flat at $1.2 million in Q4 and in Q3 2020.

Operating income decreased $0.1 million to income of $0.1 million in Q4 from income of $0.2 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 22%, or $0.2 million, to $0.7 million in Q4 from $0.9 million in Q3. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was driven by increased cost of services, partially offset by decreased depreciation expense.

Liquidity

We ended the quarter with $16.0 million of liquidity, consisting of $13.2 million of capacity available on our revolving credit facility and $2.8 million of cash. The Q4 cash ending balance of $2.8 million compares to $3.4 million at the end of Q3 2020.

Debt

We ended Q4 with aggregate net debt of $26.0 million, an increase of $1.6 million, as compared to $24.4 million at the end of Q3.

We had an outstanding draw on our revolving credit facility of $7.5 million at the end of Q4 compared to $3.0 million at the end of Q3. During the quarter, we borrowed $8.7 million under the credit facility, which was partially offset by aggregate payments of $4.2 million on the principal balance.

We had an outstanding balance on our term debt of $20.2 million at the end of Q3 and we made aggregate payments of $2.5 million during Q4, leaving a principal balance of $17.7 million at the end of Q4.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(UNAUDITED)

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss before net interest expense, income tax provision or benefit, depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, acquisition-related, severance and reorganization costs, gain or loss on disposal of assets, and certain other non-cash and certain items that we do not view as indicative of our ongoing performance.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure because it allows for an effective evaluation of our operating performance when compared to our peers, without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. We exclude the items listed above from net income or loss in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially within our industry depending upon accounting methods, book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net loss determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are reflected in Adjusted EBITDA. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that our results will be unaffected by the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be identical to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table presents reconciliations of net income or loss, our most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, to Adjusted EBITDA.

The following tables are a reconciliation of net income or loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020, in millions:
