Management Commentary

"We are pleased with the progress on our growth strategy both organically and with the announced acquisition of Alamo Pressure Pumping," said Robert Drummond, President and Chief Executive Officer of NexTier.  "Commodity prices and economic activity continued to improve throughout the second quarter, leading to a strong recovery in completions activity and an unusual amount of near-term opportunities to deploy additional fleets. Our response to the significant level of concentrated growth included costly investments for activating and staffing fleets to be deployed in the third quarter beginning in July. These growing pains, out of period costs, and transitory startup inefficiencies, impacted our second quarter profitability.  Nevertheless, we remain confident that our investments will allow us to harvest the benefits during the second half of this year and beyond."

"NexTier achieved sequential revenue growth of 28%, driven by continued improvement in completions activity and demand for our next gen frac equipment," said Kenny Pucheu, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of NexTier. "Offsetting some of the sequential top-line growth was an estimated $17 million of EBITDA impact resulting from operational and structural startup inefficiencies in our frac business, compounded by fleet activation costs for deployments planned in the third quarter.  Having already funded the major costs to deploy, we stand ready to efficiently meet another quarter of strong growth and customer demand."

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Revenue totaled $292.1 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $228.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. The sequential improvement in revenue was driven by increased activity levels and added capacity in all business lines and improvements in net pricing.

Net loss totaled $31.8 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $54.5 million, or $0.25 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted net loss(1) totaled $41.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted net loss of $50.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2021.

Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") totaled $20.7 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to SG&A of $16.1 million in the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted SG&A(1) totaled $20.1 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted SG&A of $21.2 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA(1) totaled $5.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Management Adjustments

EBITDA(1) for the second quarter was $15.2 million. When excluding net management adjustments of $9.9 million, adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $5.3 million. Management adjustments included a gain on estimated insurance recovery in excess of book value from a fire, a reduction in a pre-merger tax audit estimate, and a gain on an equity security, partially offset by stock compensation expense, bad debt expense related to the Well Support Services divestiture, and estimated legal expenses related to pre-merger litigation. Approximately $8.8 million of total net management adjustments were cash, mostly related to the insurance recovery.

Completion Services

Revenue in our Completion Services segment totaled $268.8 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $209.0 million in the first quarter of 2021. The sequential increase was primarily driven by increased activity in all completions product and services lines, improved pricing, and new fleet deployments. Adjusted Gross Profit totaled $20.4 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $15.4 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Despite a fire resulting in the loss of a fleet, the Company had an average of 18 fully-utilized fracturing fleets in the second quarter of 2021, and exited the second quarter of 2021 with 19 fully-utilized and 21 deployed fleets. When taking only fracturing and integrated wireline into account, annualized Adjusted Gross Profit(1) per fully-utilized fracturing fleet totaled $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $4.1 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Well Construction and Intervention Services

Revenue in our Well Construction and Intervention ("WC&I") Services segment, totaled $23.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $19.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. The sequential improvement was primarily driven by increased customer activity, favorable activity mix, and some pricing improvements in our Cement business. Adjusted Gross Profit totaled $2.8 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to Adjusted Gross Profit of $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2021.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Total debt outstanding as of June 30, 2021 totaled $334.4 million, net of debt discounts and deferred finance costs and excluding lease obligations. As of June 30, 2021, total available liquidity was $372.0 million, comprised of cash of $250.4 million, and $121.6 million of available borrowing capacity under our asset-based credit facility.

Total cash provided by operating activities during the second quarter of 2021 was $14.6 million and cash used in investing activities was $33.9 million, resulting in a free cash flow(1) use of $19.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. Excluding acquisition, integration, and expansion costs of $0.1 million, market driven costs of $0.4 million, and other miscellaneous costs of $0.4 million, adjusted free cash flow use(1) totaled $18.5 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Acquisition of Alamo Pressure Pumping

On August 4, 2021, NexTier announced that it entered into an agreement to acquire 100% of the equity interests of Alamo Pressure Pumping, LLC ("Alamo"). For additional information related to the acquisition, please reference the Company's press release issued today and available on the Press Releases section of NexTier's Investor website at https://investors.nextierofs.com/ir-press-releases. Additionally, an investor presentation detailing the transaction is available on the Presentations section of the Investor website at https://investors.nextierofs.com/ir-home.

Outlook

For the third quarter of 2021, NexTier standalone, expects to operate the equivalent of 21 fully-utilized frac fleets and exit the quarter with 23 frac fleets deployed. In addition, the Company will add capacity, which is expected to be highly-utilized, from Alamo following the completion of the acquisition, currently expected at the end of August 2021.

Combined, and based on this forecasted transaction close timing, revenue for the third quarter of 2021 is expected to be between $390 million and $420 million, driven by the addition of Alamo's deployed capacity with very high utilization for approximately one month, combined with better utilization of increased Tier 4 duel fuel deployments that carries better profitability. On this base of activity, on a combined basis, we expect to generate at least $30 million of adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2021. With the increased cadence of NexTier's profitability during the back half of the second quarter, and the addition of Alamo, the Company expects to achieve a third quarter of 2021 adjusted EBITDA exit monthly run rate of $18-20 million.

With NexTier's fleet upgrade program largely completed during the first half of 2021, combined with the addition of a frac fleet in early July 2021, the Company expects to convert two additional fleets to Tier 4 Dual Fuel during the second half of 2021 for standalone NexTier. NexTier plans to provide additional details on Alamo's upgrade program following the completion of the transaction.

"We were very successful at conserving cash during the COVID-19 downturn, positioning us to make strategic moves like the Alamo transaction when the time was right," added Robert Drummond. "We have frequently stated that the strength of our balance sheet was a key differentiator for NexTier and now is the time we shift to using it offensively. Our investments made in 2020 and 2021 on enhancing and standardizing our fleet combined with our merger with Alamo accelerates our strategic plans to deliver higher efficiency, lower cost integrated completion operations, with a byproduct of reduced emissions for our customers. We believe that we are now positioned for the right part of the market and at the right time." 

Coronavirus Monitoring

The Company continues our coronavirus measures focused on the safety of our partners, employees, and the communities in which we operate, while at the same time seeking to mitigate the impact on our financial position and operations. We continue to encourage our workforce to practice safe behaviors in the workplace and while away from work to help prevent community spread of COVID-19. The Company continues to assess its mitigation plans for further and prolonged impact from the coronavirus. Additional information on the Company's response to the coronavirus can be found in its periodic reports that are filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

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 EBITDA, 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 EBITDA, 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 Adjusted 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. Reconciliations of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to comparable GAAP measures are not available due to the challenges and impracticability with estimating some of the items, particularly with estimates for certain contingent liabilities, and estimating non-cash unrealized fair value losses and gains which are subject to market variability and therefore a reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort.




Non-GAAP Measure Definitions: EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to eliminate the impact of interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. 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.
