Liberty Oilfield Services Inc. Announces First Quarter 2020 Financial and Operational Results

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Liberty Oilfield Services Inc. (NYSE: LBRT; “Liberty” or the “Company”) announced today first quarter 2020 financial and operational results. Summary Results and Highlights Revenue of $472 million and net income1 of $2 million, or $0.02 fully diluted income per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 Adjusted EBITDA2 of $54 million and annualized Adjusted EBITDA per average active fleet of $9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 Quarterly record for both proppant pumped and stages completed “Liberty’s first quarter results reflect both operators’ flight to quality service providers and Liberty’s efforts to concentrate more of our capacity with select top-tier players. Revenues grew 19% to $472 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, and net income1 was $2 million, or $0.02 per fully diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA2 increased 77% to $54 million sequentially, equating to $9 million annualized Adjusted EBITDA per average active frac fleet. Liberty’s first quarter results exceeded previous quarterly records for number of stages pumped and sand volume pumped, both by double-digit percentage increases. All 24 of our frac fleets were active in the quarter until the mid-March COVID driven reduction in activity began. This performance was driven by strong customer preference for Liberty and outstanding operational execution. We ended the quarter with available liquidity of $259 million. Over the last 12 months, which have been far from boom times in our industry, Liberty delivered a 6% Pre-Tax Return on Capital Employed3, generated significant free cash flow and returned approximately $25 million to our stockholders. Industry conditions had been declining for several quarters even before the COVID pandemic. During these challenging times operators have become even more demanding on service quality, efficiency, safety and technology solutions. All of this plays to Liberty’s favor as evidenced by our first quarter financial results,” commented Chris Wright, Chief Executive Officer. Current Market During the first quarter the COVID-19 pandemic emerged and put large downward pressure on the global economy and oil demand. COVID-19, combined with the initial failure of OPEC+ to come to agreement driving oil supply upward beginning in April, led to a historic collapse in global oil prices. The estimated collapse in worldwide demand for oil is now approximately 30 million barrels a day, and oil storage is rapidly reaching capacity. West Texas Intermediate crude oil price has declined approximately 75% since January 2020. In response, OPEC+ has subsequently agreed to substantial production cuts. North American exploration and production companies have announced significant cuts to planned 2020 capital expenditures that has led to a plunging rig count and the most abrupt curtailment of frac activity ever. Liberty acted swiftly to protect our employees, customers and business. During February 2020 we formed a COVID-19 response team to implement safety procedures and contingency plans at both our customer locations and our facilities to ensure our ability to continue providing safe and efficient services to our customers, while protecting the health of both employees and customers. We have been proactive in protecting our business during these unprecedented events. We moved quickly to preserve cash and protect our balance sheet and announced strategic actions earlier this month to align our cost structure with demand for frac services. Regrettably, for the first time in the Company’s history we undertook a reduction of our personnel and staffed fleet count by approximately 50%. We also suspended variable compensation plans and our 401(k) match, implemented base salary reductions, executive and director compensation reductions, operating cost rationalization, reduction of planned 2020 capital expenditures, and suspended our quarterly dividend. Further, we have implemented a company-wide employee furlough plan that flexes our cost structure to align with the uncertain level of frac demand in the coming months. “The toll on separated and present Liberty employees has been significant. We have been humbled by everyone’s incredible professionalism and understanding of these tough measures, and we are proud to be part of the Liberty family during these troubled times,” commented Chris Wright. Outlook Commenting on the outlook, Wright added, “In the next few months, we expect very low frac activity in the oil basins. However, we expect that our balance sheet and Liberty culture will allow us the necessary flexibility to navigate this industry disruption. The team is strongly focused on preserving our culture and our competitive advantages while always delivering superior service to our customers. We are working closely with customers to bring innovative engineering to their completion strategies to maximize their return for each precious investment dollar. Our largest customers are top tier players that we chose to align with because they had strong balance sheets, high quality assets and, most importantly, are managed by great people. “With the flexible cost structure now in place, Liberty currently projects to be free cash flow positive for the last three quarters of this year, ending the year with a greater cash balance than at the end of the first quarter. While the duration and depth of the oil demand contraction remains uncertain, we are well-positioned to react quickly to a rebound in oil demand, commodity prices, and producer appetite for frac services.” First Quarter Results For the first quarter of 2020, revenue increased 19% to $472 million from $398 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Net income before income taxes totaled $3 million for the first quarter of 2020 compared to net loss before income taxes of $22 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Net income1 (after taxes) totaled $2 million for the first quarter of 2020 compared to net loss1 of $18 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA2 increased 77% to $54 million from $30 million in the fourth quarter. Annualized Adjusted EBITDA per average active fleet increased to $9 million in the first quarter compared to $5 million in the fourth quarter. Please refer to the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) to net income (a GAAP measure) in this earnings release. Fully diluted income per share was $0.02 for the first quarter of 2020 compared to loss of $0.15 for the fourth quarter of 2019. 1. Net income/loss attributable to controlling and noncontrolling interests. 2. “Adjusted EBITDA” is not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). Please see the supplemental financial information in the table under “Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA” at the end of this earnings release for a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. 3.

Please see the supplemental financial information in the table under “Calculation of Pre-Tax Return on Capital Employed” at the end of this earnings release for a calculation of this measure. Balance Sheet and Liquidity As of March 31, 2020, Liberty had cash on hand of $57 million, a reduction from fourth quarter levels as working capital increased in line with revenue, and total debt of $106 million, net of deferred financing costs and original issue discount. The term loan requires only a 1% annual amortization of principal, paid quarterly, with no substantial payment due until maturity in September 2022, subject to mandatory prepayments from excess cash flow. There were no borrowings drawn on the ABL credit facility, and total liquidity, including availability under the credit facility, was $259 million. Stockholder Returns During the quarter ended March 31, 2020 the Company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share of Class A common stock, or approximately $4.1 million in aggregate to stockholders. Liberty Oilfield Services New HoldCo LLC (Liberty LLC) also paid quarterly distributions of $0.05 per unit, for total dividends and distributions of approximately $5.6 million. Given an unprecedented global oversupply of oil that has negatively impacted demand for frac services, Liberty has turned its focus to cash conservation and balance sheet protection. On April 2, 2020, the Company announced the suspension of future quarterly dividends until business conditions warrant reinstatement.

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Liberty Oilfield Services Inc. (NYSE: LBRT; “Liberty” or the “Company”) announced today first quarter 2020 financial and operational results.

Summary Results and Highlights

  • Revenue of $472 million and net income1 of $2 million, or $0.02 fully diluted income per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2020
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 of $54 million and annualized Adjusted EBITDA per average active fleet of $9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020
  • Quarterly record for both proppant pumped and stages completed

“Liberty’s first quarter results reflect both operators’ flight to quality service providers and Liberty’s efforts to concentrate more of our capacity with select top-tier players. Revenues grew 19% to $472 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, and net income1 was $2 million, or $0.02 per fully diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA2 increased 77% to $54 million sequentially, equating to $9 million annualized Adjusted EBITDA per average active frac fleet. Liberty’s first quarter results exceeded previous quarterly records for number of stages pumped and sand volume pumped, both by double-digit percentage increases. All 24 of our frac fleets were active in the quarter until the mid-March COVID driven reduction in activity began. This performance was driven by strong customer preference for Liberty and outstanding operational execution. We ended the quarter with available liquidity of $259 million. Over the last 12 months, which have been far from boom times in our industry, Liberty delivered a 6% Pre-Tax Return on Capital Employed3, generated significant free cash flow and returned approximately $25 million to our stockholders. Industry conditions had been declining for several quarters even before the COVID pandemic. During these challenging times operators have become even more demanding on service quality, efficiency, safety and technology solutions. All of this plays to Liberty’s favor as evidenced by our first quarter financial results,” commented Chris Wright, Chief Executive Officer.

Current Market

During the first quarter the COVID-19 pandemic emerged and put large downward pressure on the global economy and oil demand. COVID-19, combined with the initial failure of OPEC+ to come to agreement driving oil supply upward beginning in April, led to a historic collapse in global oil prices. The estimated collapse in worldwide demand for oil is now approximately 30 million barrels a day, and oil storage is rapidly reaching capacity. West Texas Intermediate crude oil price has declined approximately 75% since January 2020. In response, OPEC+ has subsequently agreed to substantial production cuts. North American exploration and production companies have announced significant cuts to planned 2020 capital expenditures that has led to a plunging rig count and the most abrupt curtailment of frac activity ever.

Liberty acted swiftly to protect our employees, customers and business. During February 2020 we formed a COVID-19 response team to implement safety procedures and contingency plans at both our customer locations and our facilities to ensure our ability to continue providing safe and efficient services to our customers, while protecting the health of both employees and customers.

We have been proactive in protecting our business during these unprecedented events. We moved quickly to preserve cash and protect our balance sheet and announced strategic actions earlier this month to align our cost structure with demand for frac services. Regrettably, for the first time in the Company’s history we undertook a reduction of our personnel and staffed fleet count by approximately 50%. We also suspended variable compensation plans and our 401(k) match, implemented base salary reductions, executive and director compensation reductions, operating cost rationalization, reduction of planned 2020 capital expenditures, and suspended our quarterly dividend. Further, we have implemented a company-wide employee furlough plan that flexes our cost structure to align with the uncertain level of frac demand in the coming months.

“The toll on separated and present Liberty employees has been significant. We have been humbled by everyone’s incredible professionalism and understanding of these tough measures, and we are proud to be part of the Liberty family during these troubled times,” commented Chris Wright.

Outlook

Commenting on the outlook, Wright added, “In the next few months, we expect very low frac activity in the oil basins. However, we expect that our balance sheet and Liberty culture will allow us the necessary flexibility to navigate this industry disruption. The team is strongly focused on preserving our culture and our competitive advantages while always delivering superior service to our customers. We are working closely with customers to bring innovative engineering to their completion strategies to maximize their return for each precious investment dollar. Our largest customers are top tier players that we chose to align with because they had strong balance sheets, high quality assets and, most importantly, are managed by great people.

“With the flexible cost structure now in place, Liberty currently projects to be free cash flow positive for the last three quarters of this year, ending the year with a greater cash balance than at the end of the first quarter. While the duration and depth of the oil demand contraction remains uncertain, we are well-positioned to react quickly to a rebound in oil demand, commodity prices, and producer appetite for frac services.”

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of March 31, 2020, Liberty had cash on hand of $57 million, a reduction from fourth quarter levels as working capital increased in line with revenue, and total debt of $106 million, net of deferred financing costs and original issue discount. The term loan requires only a 1% annual amortization of principal, paid quarterly, with no substantial payment due until maturity in September 2022, subject to mandatory prepayments from excess cash flow. There were no borrowings drawn on the ABL credit facility, and total liquidity, including availability under the credit facility, was $259 million.

Stockholder Returns

During the quarter ended March 31, 2020 the Company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share of Class A common stock, or approximately $4.1 million in aggregate to stockholders. Liberty Oilfield Services New HoldCo LLC (Liberty LLC) also paid quarterly distributions of $0.05 per unit, for total dividends and distributions of approximately $5.6 million.

Given an unprecedented global oversupply of oil that has negatively impacted demand for frac services, Liberty has turned its focus to cash conservation and balance sheet protection. On April 2, 2020, the Company announced the suspension of future quarterly dividends until business conditions warrant reinstatement.

Liberty will host a conference call to discuss the results at 8:00 a.m. Mountain Time (10:00 a.m. Eastern Time) on Wednesday, April 29, 2020. Presenting Liberty’s results will be Chris Wright, Chief Executive Officer, Ron Gusek, President, and Michael Stock, Chief Financial Officer.
