Xtreme Drilling and Coil Services Announces Second Quarter 2014 Operating and Financial Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 7, 2014) - Xtreme Drilling and Coil Services ("Xtreme" or the "Company") (TSX:XDC) announces summary results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. It is anticipated that filing will take place on SEDAR of the Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis on Friday, August 8, 2014.

Highlights - Q2 2014

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $19.4 million for the second quarter, a decrease of 6% over the previous quarter and an increase of 15% over the second quarter of 2013. The decrease from the prior quarter was primarily due to normal Canadian seasonality as well as one less XSR coiled tubing unit in operation during the quarter. The unit was damaged during a routine operation and spent the entire quarter under repair and returned to work in mid-July. The decrease was offset by mobilization revenue recognized for the two rigs upgraded and shipped to India during the second quarter.
  • Revenue was $62.3 million in the second quarter of 2013, or a decrease of 11% over the previous quarter. The decrease in revenue for the quarter was a function of fewer operating days in Canada as well as the US XSR segment. Revenue per operating day increased significantly to $35.0 thousand from $32.7 thousand in the first quarter. The increase is attributed to the mobilization revenue for the two rigs shipped to India during the quarter.
  • The Company had 1,779 operating days, or 351 fewer days than the first quarter of 2014. This resulted in a utilization rate of 73% for the fleet of 21 XDR drilling rigs and 7 XSR coiled tubing units.

    The drilling segment achieved utilization of 75% on 1,433 operating days. This is comprised of an 84% utilization rate in the US XDR fleet and 22% for the Canadian XDR rigs. The decrease in US utilization was based on the fact that the two rigs shipped to India did not record operating days for the quarter. They did generate mobilization revenue in the quarter through a one-time payment made by the customer as part of the initial mobilization of the rigs to India. In addition, we had a XDR 500 rig down for approximately six weeks for a major inspection and recertification prior to going to a new client.

    For the second quarter, the coil services segment achieved utilization of 68% on 346 operating days. The utilization was negatively affected by one unit that was idle for the entire period due to damage sustained in a routine operation.
  • The Company recognized a Net Loss of $0.9 million or $.01 per fully diluted share for the second quarter. This includes a loss on disposal of equipment of $3.9 million during the quarter. Excluding this charge, net income would have been approximately $2.1 million or $.03 per share.
  • The Company paid down an additional $5.3 million in debt during the quarter. Net debt at quarter end was $105.4 million in Canadian Dollars. At quarter end, all but $2.0 million of the Company's debt was denominated in US dollars and translated for financial reporting purposes to Canadian Dollars. Xtreme exited the quarter with approximately $34.0 million available on the Company's revolving credit facility and working capital of $43.5 million. The funded debt to EBITDA ratio as calculated for the Company's credit facility was 1.8x, which is well under the credit facility covenant level of 3.0. In addition, the net debt to EBITDA ratio dropped to 1.2x for the second quarter. Capital expenditures totaled $21.0 million for the quarter with a target full year 2014 capital budget of $70.0 to $72.0 million which is anticipated to be funded through operating cash flow.

Excerpt from Management's Discussion and Analysis

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014

Outlook

Activity remained strong in Xtreme's core operating areas of the Eagle Ford, Niobrara and Bakken during the second quarter. Production from each of these tight oil resource plays continues to surge higher with the Eagle Ford and Bakken being the largest producers of oil and condensates in the United States. The trend toward faster moving higher specification rigs has benefitted Xtreme as the fleet of 21 XDR drilling rigs and seven XSR coiled tubing units are all AC electric, tier 1 quality. Because of this Xtreme is well positioned to take advantage of the many opportunities in the US unconventional resource play market. Whereas many of our drilling and service competitors focus has been on upgrading technology and fleet quality.

The Company is excited by the opportunity of a new growth market for drilling services in India. Two XDR 300 rigs were shipped to the country during the second quarter. The XDR 300 rig is a tier 1 rig which is an ideal fit for markets that have slightly shallower well profiles but still demand the performance of an AC electric drilling rig. India fit this profile well and we have partnered with a new customer that is working to build efficiencies and improve their drilling program. This deployment fits with Xtreme's strategy of optimizing the fleet by moving into regions that value and will pay a premium for drilling performance with technology. As of this release one rig had begun operations with the second rig likely to start in the next week. It is anticipated that the initial contract will have a term of 15 to 18 months with the opportunity of additional wells upon completion.

In the United States XDR drilling activity remained robust. Prospects for contract renewals in the coming six months appear strong. We have seven rigs with contracts that expire by the end of 2014. We are confident that each of these should contract at slightly higher rates and a majority of the rigs should re-contract with the current customer. During the second quarter Xtreme continued to invest in the existing fleet. We are committed to drive performance through a focus on planned maintenance, crew training and safety. As we implement these new processes we saw margins slightly compress in the first half of 2014. However, we have begun to see the benefits of this focus as our fleet downtime has decreased by roughly 50% over the past 12 months. In addition, we anticipate drilling margins will trend higher as repair and maintenance expenses come down over the second half of 2014. In Canada XDR drilling activity was slow in the second quarter with the seasonal road bans. The three XDR 200 rigs in Canada are back working and scheduled to operate through March of 2015.

In the US XSR division, coiled tubing demand remained far greater that our ability to supply services. As previously announced one of the units was idle for the entire second quarter. It had an incident during a routine operation that caused damage. Revenue was down for the quarter in this segment due to the incident. The unit is back to work and we anticipate that activity will remain strong in the Eagle Ford for the remainder of the year. The combination of our proprietary technology with AC electric units and large diameter 2 5/8" coiled tubing continues to provide significant value to our customers. The Company is on target to deliver two new XSR units to South Texas in October and December of this year and six additional units in 2015 and 2016. Several potential customers have already inquired as to availability and delivery schedules of the new units. We anticipate that the trend towards larger diameter coil in the Eagle Ford will only increase in the future as operators are able to mitigate downhole issues and complete wells to greater lengths. Based on this Xtreme is very confident that we can grow our market share in South Texas and potentially other regions through our new build program.

In Saudi Arabia performance remains very strong. The operation has been an exciting example of the benefits of coiled tubing drilling. Xtreme continues to pursue additional opportunities in Saudi and other markets that see the potential value in underbalanced coiled tubing drilling. We anticipate during the second half of the year our customer in Saudi Arabia will make a final decision on the need for additional units on this project. We remain cautiously optimistic that we can add units into this market.
