Management Commentary

"NexTier's Completions activity during the first quarter played out as we expected, with the exception of the abnormal winter storm that disrupted operations in February," said Robert Drummond, President and Chief Executive Officer of NexTier. "We were pleased to deploy Completion fleets for five new customers at the start of the year in January, and finished the quarter with strong efficiencies in March, which marked our most profitable month since April of 2020. I was particularly proud of how our team handled the unusual winter storm that had a broad impact across the Southern region, including the Permian, Eagle Ford, and Haynesville, and caused the widespread halt of operations for approximately 10 days. While this disruption interrupted our momentum during the quarter, the team managed to safely accommodate our field crews and minimize impact to our customers' operations and our equipment."

"We are moving into the second quarter with positive momentum, which is enhanced by increased activity from some of our historical customers returning to work. I am pleased to see our customers continuing to increase their use of natural gas-powered equipment to further reduce their carbon footprint and capture the value created by our integrated completions solutions," continued Mr. Drummond. "We see strong demand for lower emissions frac technology and are proud to maintain our position as the largest operator of deployed Tier 4 DGB natural gas-powered fleets. We remain on target to support our customers with natural gas delivery to the wellsite from our new Power Solutions business beginning in the third quarter, which will enable greater diesel displacement, lower carbon emissions, and increased wellsite efficiency."   

"We were successful in maintaining our cash position, exiting the first quarter with $272 million in cash, even while maintaining our asset readiness and making additional investments upgrading existing fleets to Tier 4 DGB and in our Power Solutions business startup," said Kenny Pucheu, Chief Financial Officer for NexTier. "The strong activity we experienced to end the first quarter is carrying over into the second quarter, including an improved commodity price environment and further tightening in the market for natural gas-powered fleets. These dynamics are driving increased fleet utilization, better calendar efficiency, and some net pricing recovery."

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Revenue totaled $228.4 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $215.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The sequential improvement in revenue was driven by increased activity levels in all business lines and improvements in net pricing, largely offset by the impacts of the severe winter weather in February 2021.

Net loss totaled $54.5 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $60.2 million, or $0.28 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2020. Adjusted net loss(1) totaled $50.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted net loss of $63.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") totaled $16.1 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to SG&A of $23.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Adjusted SG&A(1) totaled $21.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted SG&A of $20.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $7.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

First Quarter 2021 Management Adjustments

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2021 includes management net adjustments of approximately $4.2 million, which were primarily non-cash related. Net non-cash adjustments of approximately $5.0 million were largely comprised of market-driven facility closure and severance costs, stock compensation expense, litigation accrual, and a loss on a financial investment, partially offset by a favorable progress on a pre-merger related tax audit. Approximately $1.0 million of management adjustments were cash related.

Completion Services

Revenue in our Completion Services segment totaled $209.0 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $200.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The sequential increase was primarily driven by improved calendar efficiency, new fleet deployments, and some net pricing traction, largely offset by the impacts of the severe winter weather that resulted in approximately 10 days of downtime in a majority of our operating locations. Adjusted Gross Profit totaled $15.4 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $23.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

The Company had an average of 15 fully-utilized fracturing fleets in the first quarter of 2021, and exited the first quarter of 2021 with 15 fully-utilized and 18 deployed fleets. When taking only fracturing and integrated wireline into account, annualized Adjusted Gross Profit per fully-utilized fracturing fleet totaled $4.1 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $6.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Well Construction and Intervention Services

Revenue in our Well Construction and Intervention ("WC&I") Services segment, totaled $19.4 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $14.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The sequential improvement was primarily driven by increased activity and market share growth in focused basins. Adjusted Gross Profit totaled $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted Gross Profit of $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Total debt outstanding as of March 31, 2021 totaled $335.1 million, net of debt discounts and deferred finance costs and excluding lease obligations. As of March 31, 2021, total available liquidity was $353.0 million, comprised of cash of $271.6 million, and $81.4 million of available borrowing capacity under our asset-based credit facility.

Total cash used in operations during the first quarter of 2021 was $23.2 million and cash used in investing activities was $13.8 million, excluding $34.4 million from the receipt of cash for disposition of debt securities and make-whole derivative received as part of the consideration of the sale of our well services business to Basic Energy Services, Inc. (collectively the "Basic Notes") in the first quarter of 2020, resulting in a free cash flow use of $37.0 million in the first quarter of 2021. Excluding net proceeds from market-driven cash settlements of $1.4 million, gain on sale of financial investment of $0.3 million, and gain on receipt of payment for the Basic Notes of $0.8 million, adjusted free cash flow use(1) totaled $36.7 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Outlook

For the second quarter of 2021, NexTier expects to deploy 20 fleets and operate the equivalent of 18 fully utilized fleets. The combination of this increased activity, some net pricing recovery, and the absence of additional abnormal winter weather impacts experienced in the first quarter of 2021, is expected to drive sequential revenue growth of at least 25% in the second quarter of 2021. This revenue growth, combined with better fixed cost absorption and some improved calendar utilization, is expected to result in adjusted EBITDA of between $18 million and $22 million for the second quarter of 2021. NexTier continues to expect total capital expenditures for the first half of 2021 of approximately $60 million, comprised of maintenance capex across product and service lines, including $3 million dollars per fleet per year for Frac, as well as strategic investments in additional dual fuel conversions and the continued development of its new Power Solutions business. For the full year 2021, based on additional momentum with customers expanding activity beyond the second quarter of 2021, and assuming a similar economic and commodity price environment, the Company currently expects full year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA to total at least $80 million.

"Despite the weather-related challenges experienced in the first quarter, we anticipate exiting the second quarter with an Adjusted EBITDA annual run-rate above $80 million in-line with our expectations as the market begins to recover," stated Mr. Drummond. "Based on current visibility, we anticipate the third quarter Adjusted EBITDA run rate further improving to the point that we plan to achieve double digit Adjusted EBITDA margins by the exit of 2021. As expected, 2021 will be a transitional year for the U.S. oilfield services sector, and we believe NexTier is well positioned with positive momentum as we move into 2022."

Corporate Responsibility Report

NexTier recently published its Corporate Responsibility Report for 2020, which highlights the Company's industry leadership in prioritizing responsible operations including natural gas field equipment to lower emissions. This report is available on the Investor page of NexTier's website at https://investors.nextierofs.com.

The report highlights initiatives demonstrating NexTier's priority to reduce the environmental impact of our operations, a focal point of commitment to ESG management."

(1)  Non-GAAP Financial Measures. The Company has included in this press release or discussed on the conference call described above certain non-GAAP financial measures, some of which are calculated on segment basis or product line basis. These measurements provide supplemental information which the Company believes is useful to analysts and investors to evaluate its ongoing results of operations, when considered alongside GAAP measures such as net income and operating income. 

Non-GAAP financial measures include Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Net Income (loss), free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow, Adjusted SG&A, and annualized Adjusted gross profit per fully-utilized fracturing fleet. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the financial impact of items management does not consider in assessing the Company's ongoing operating performance, and thereby facilitate review of the Company's operating performance on a period-to-period basis.  Other companies may have different capital structures, and comparability to the Company's results of operations may be impacted by the effects of acquisition accounting on its depreciation and amortization.  As a result of the effects of these factors and factors specific to other companies, the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted SG&A, and Adjusted Net Income(loss) provide helpful information to analysts and investors to facilitate a comparison of its operating performance to that of other companies.  The Company believes free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow is important to investors in that it provides a useful measure to assess management's effectiveness in the areas of profitability and capital management.  Annualized Gross Profit per fully-utilized fracturing fleet is used to evaluate the operating performance of the business line for comparable periods, and the Company believes it is important as an indicator of operating performance of our fracturing and integrated wireline product line because it excludes the effects of the capital structure and certain non-cash items from the product line's operating results.  For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures, please see the tables at the end of this press release.

Non-GAAP Measure Definitions: Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to eliminate the impact of interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, along with certain items management does not consider in assessing ongoing performance. Adjusted Gross Profit is defined as revenue less cost of services, further adjusted to eliminate items in cost of services that management does not consider in assessing ongoing performance. Adjusted Gross Profit at the segment level is not considered to be a non-GAAP financial measure as it is our segment measure of profit or loss and is required to be disclosed under GAAP pursuant to ASC 280. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is defined as net income (loss) plus the after-tax amount of merger/transaction-related costs and other non-routine items. Adjusted SG&A is defined as selling, general and administrative expenses adjusted for severance and business divestiture costs, merger/transaction-related costs, and other non-routine items. Free cash flow is defined as the net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents before financing activities, including share repurchase activity. Adjusted free cash flow adjusts free cash flow for certain management adjustments. Annualized Adjusted Gross Profit per fully-utilized fleet, is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as (i) revenue less cost of services attributable to the fracturing and integrated wireline product line, further adjusted to eliminate items in cost of services that management does not consider in assessing ongoing performance for the fracturing and integrated wireline product line, (ii) divided by the fully-utilized fracturing and integrated wireline fleets (average deployed fleets multiplied by fleet utilization) per quarter, and then (iii) multiplied by four.
