Oil States Announces First Quarter Earnings of $0.78 per Share

Oil States Announces First Quarter Earnings of $0.78 per Share

HOUSTON, Apr 28, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) --Today, Oil States International, Inc. (NYSE:OIS) reported net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 of $40.2 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared to $56.1 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2009.

The Company generated $532.3 million and $91.5 million of revenues and EBITDA, respectively, during the quarter compared to revenue of $667.1 million and EBITDA of $113.4 million in the first quarter of 2009 (EBITDA defined as net income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization).(A) The year-over-year declines in revenues and EBITDA were primarily due to lower OCTG pricing and margins at Tubular Services as well as reduced manufacturing activity and shipments in Offshore Products. These declines were partially offset by revenue and EBITDA growth in Well Site Services and Accommodations. Consolidated operating income in the first quarter of 2010 was $59.8 million compared to $84.9 million for the corresponding quarter of 2009.

"The first quarter of 2010 was characterized by an improving economic environment, particularly when compared to the uncertainty experienced at the end of the first quarter of 2009," stated Cindy B. Taylor, Oil States' President and Chief Executive Officer. "However, our earnings for the first quarter of 2010 were below that of the 2009 first quarter due in large part to pricing declines experienced throughout 2009 which have yet to be fully recovered. Significantly lower OCTG prices year-over-year negatively impacted our Tubular Services' revenues and margins. Similarly, our drilling rig and rental tool rates remain at lower levels than what we enjoyed a year ago. Our oil sands accommodations continue to provide us with a stable and growing revenue stream. Although our Offshore Products segment reported lower revenues and EBITDA in the first quarter of 2010, backlog improved 7% from the end of 2009."

Mrs. Taylor continued, "Looking forward, the outlook for our oil sands accommodations continues to improve. Oil sands operators have recently announced additional investments in the region which should bode well for the occupancy of our existing rooms and may present opportunities for further capacity expansions. Bidding activity in our Offshore Products segment remains at healthy levels; however, the timing of awards remains uncertain. Despite marginal natural gas prices, U.S. drilling activity remains resilient largely due to hedging activities of our customers, drilling to hold leases and increases in rigs drilling for oil and liquids rich gas."

The Company recognized an effective tax rate of 29.3% in the first quarter of 2010 compared to 31.1% in the first quarter of 2009. The lower effective tax rate in the first quarter of 2010 was primarily due to increased foreign sourced income which is taxed at lower statutory rates. The Company spent $37.2 million in capital expenditures during the first quarter of 2010 primarily related to the previously announced expansion of the Wapasu Creek Lodge. The Company currently expects to spend approximately $233 million in capital expenditures during 2010 primarily to expand its Canadian oil sands accommodations.

BUSINESS SEGMENT RESULTS

(Unless otherwise noted, the following discussion compares the quarterly results from the first quarter of 2010 to the results from the first quarter of 2009.)

Effective with this quarter's reporting, we are presenting Accommodations as a separate reportable segment. As a result of this change, Well Site Services now consists of our drilling operations and rental tools only.

Accommodations

Accommodations generated revenues of $145.5 million and EBITDA of $57.8 million for the first quarter of 2010 compared to revenues and EBITDA of $141.8 million and $56.7 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2009. Accommodations revenues increased 3% and EBITDA increased 2% year-over-year due to the 19% year-over-year strengthening of the Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar and approximately $19.0 million in revenues and $9.0 million in EBITDA related to the previously announced accommodations contract in support of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics coupled with improved activity at the oil sands lodges. These year-over-year increases were partially offset by lower manufacturing revenues as the 2009 results included approximately $37 million of third-party accommodation unit manufacturing revenues which were not repeated in 2010.

Well Site Services

Well Site Services, consisting of drilling services and rental tools, generated revenues of $97.9 million and EBITDA of $20.3 million in the first quarter of 2010 compared to revenues and EBITDA of $89.0 million and $16.6 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2009, representing year-over-year growth of 10% and 22%, respectively. The increase in EBITDA was primarily due to year-over-year increases in activity from the Company's land drilling business.

Rental tools generated $67.5 million and $14.9 million of revenues and EBITDA, respectively, in the first quarter of 2010 compared to revenues of $71.7 million and EBITDA of $13.6 million in the first quarter of 2009. These year-over-year improvements were primarily due to better project execution in the Company's well testing business as well as improved operational efficiencies as a result of consolidation and cost saving efforts implemented over the past twelve months.

Drilling services generated revenues and EBITDA of $30.4 million and $5.4 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2010 compared to $17.3 million of revenues and EBITDA of $3.0 million in the first quarter 2009. The year-over-year increase in revenues and EBITDA was due to an overall increase in rig utilization to 68.1% in the first quarter of 2010 from 32.3% in the first quarter of 2009. The positive utilization impact was partially offset by lower dayrates and cash margin per day.

Offshore Products

The Offshore Products segment generated revenues and EBITDA of $103.0 million and $15.5 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2010 compared to $128.0 million of revenues and $23.9 million in EBITDA in the first quarter of 2009. Revenues and EBITDA declined year-over-year at Offshore Products as a result of lower manufacturing activity and shipments of subsea pipeline products and rig and vessel equipment. Margins in Offshore Products declined year-over-year primarily due to reduced cost absorption with the lower activity levels. Backlog totaled $220.6 million at March 31, 2010 which represented a 7% increase from the $206.3 million reported as of December 31, 2009.

Tubular Services

Tubular Services generated revenues of $185.9 million and EBITDA of $6.6 million during the first quarter of 2010 compared to revenues of $308.3 million and EBITDA of $23.7 million in the first quarter of 2009. Tubular Services' OCTG shipments were down slightly year-over-year with 101,200 tons shipped in the first quarter of 2010 compared to 104,900 tons shipped in the first quarter of 2009 reflecting flat year-over-year U.S. drilling activity. However, gross margin as a percent of revenues declined to 5.3% in the first quarter of 2010 from 8.7% in the first quarter of 2009 as revenue per ton decreased 37% year-over-year due to the significant over supply of OCTG in the U.S. market. The Company increased its OCTG inventory by 17% during the quarter to $311.3 million at March 31, 2010. Tonnage in inventory increased 30% over the same time period in support of new customer purchase commitments, primarily for shale plays and horizontal wells.

(A) The term EBITDA consists of net income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. You should not consider it in isolation from or as a substitute for net income or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. Additionally, EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The Company has included EBITDA as a supplemental disclosure because its management believes that EBITDA provides useful information regarding our ability to service debt and to fund capital expenditures and provides investors a helpful measure for comparing its operating performance with the performance of other companies that have different financing and capital structures or tax rates. The Company uses EBITDA to compare and to monitor the performance of its business segments to other comparable public companies and as a benchmark for the award of incentive compensation under its annual incentive compensation plan. The following table sets forth a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, which is the most directly comparable measure of financial performance calculated under generally accepted accounting principles:
