Management Commentary

"As anticipated, the first quarter for NexTier was very strong. We delivered another quarter of improved operational and financial performance, demonstrating both the resiliency and consistency of our strategy," commented Robert Drummond, President and Chief Executive Officer of NexTier. "Our views on the long-term commodity markets are unchanged from prior updates, and we continue to believe US land will be called upon to fill a significant share of the growing global oil and natural gas demand over the long-term. Our customers are taking this longer-term view with regards to their own capital deployment, and thus we have not seen a material demand response to recent volatility in the markets. Absent a more severe macro event than what is being predicted today, we do not anticipate any material change in their behavior."

Mr. Drummond concluded, "This consistent discipline from our customer base is yet another sign that the US land oil and gas industry has matured from prior cycles. We believe this steady approach by our customers, combined with similar discipline by the service companies, creates long-term value for both and provides return on investments that can support the long-term steady transition of the frac fleet to natural gas fueled power, as well as cash for returns for our mutual shareholders. This disciplined win-win model was not part of the prior cycle playbooks."

"We once again saw our returns step higher, while generating meaningful free cash flow despite normal seasonal working capital headwinds," said Kenny Pucheu, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of NexTier. "Our strategy to maximize free cash flow and returns has remained very consistent since the start of the cycle. We delivered another quarter of meaningful capital returns to shareholders, and we will continue to use our buyback program to take advantage of the current share price. We see our free cash flow accelerating significantly as we progress through the year and we will continue to invest in the highest return projects, including through potential value creating M&A."

First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue totaled $935.7 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to $870.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The 7% sequential improvement in revenue was primarily driven by improved net and gross pricing compared to the fourth quarter and very strong execution to start the year, with continued progress in our wellsite integration strategy.

Net income totaled $254.0 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2023, compared to net income of $133.0 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2022. The Company recognized a $107.4 million non-cash tax benefit related to the partial release of a valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets. This release reflects improved market conditions and the Company's expectation to utilize these deferred tax assets in the coming years. Adjusted net income totaled $156.4 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2023, compared to adjusted net income of $145.8 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") of $39.7 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to $36.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. Adjusted SG&A(1) totaled $30.3 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to adjusted SG&A of $29.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $227.6 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $212.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

First Quarter 2023 Management Adjustments

EBITDA(1) for the first quarter of 2023 was $217.8 million. When excluding net management adjustments of $9.8 million, adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was $227.6 million. Management adjustments included $8.9 million in non-cash stock compensation expense and a net $0.9 million in other adjustments.

Adjusted net income of $156.4 million includes a management adjustment for the partial release of the valuation allowance of $107.4 million.

Completion Services

Revenue in our Completion Services segment totaled $895.6 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to $829.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. Adjusted gross profit(1) in this segment totaled $252.6 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to $227.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Well Construction and Intervention Services

Revenue in our Well Construction and Intervention Services segment, totaled $40.1 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to $41.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. Adjusted gross profit in this segment totaled $9.1 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to adjusted gross profit of $10.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Total debt outstanding as of March 31, 2023 was $358.0 million, net of debt discounts and deferred financing costs and excluding finance lease obligations. As of March 31, 2023, total available liquidity was $630.5 million, comprised of cash of $218.5 million and $412.0 million of available borrowing capacity under our asset-based credit facility, which remains undrawn.

Total cash provided by operating activities during the first quarter of 2023 was $173.3 million and cash used by investing activities was $96.9 million, resulting in free cash flow of $76.3 million in the first quarter of 2023.

Outlook

For the second quarter of 2023, we expect moderate sequential revenue growth, with adjusted EBITDA expected to improve once again. We expect our frac equipment to remain sold out, with strong demand for our services continuing in oil basins. Given very high industry frac equipment utilization and the widening service quality bifurcation we are seeing amongst our peer group, we do not anticipate that we will have a need to change our pricing strategy.

Consistent with prior guidance, our 2023 capital expenditure budget remains within our guide at 8-9% of revenue with spending weighted towards the first half of the year.

We expect to generate approximately $500 million of free cash flow in 2023.

Mr. Drummond concluded, "Despite recent commodity volatility, our 2023 outlook is essentially unchanged from the prior update. Demand for our services remains very strong in oil basins, and our high-end customer base is increasingly recognizing the value we are creating, as we continuously look for new ways to lower completion costs and raise efficiency, while also lowering emissions. We see this as the best path forward for the industry as we strive to help our customers maximize their financial returns without sacrificing our own returns."

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 management believes is useful to analysts and investors to evaluate our ongoing results of operations, when considered alongside GAAP measures such as net income and operating income. You should not consider them in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analysis of our results under GAAP.




Non-GAAP financial measures include EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, free cash flow, adjusted SG&A, net debt, invested capital, average invested capital, return on invested capital, annualized return on invested capital, and adjusted annualized return on invested capital. 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 net income, adjusted net income per share, and adjusted SG&A provide helpful information to analysts and investors to facilitate a comparison of its operating performance to that of other companies. Management also uses adjusted EBITDA to set targets and to assess the performance of the Company. The Company believes free cash flow, and net debt provide investors a useful measure to assess management's effectiveness in the areas of profitability and capital management. Invested capital, average invested capital, return on invested capital, annualized return on invested capital, and adjusted annualized return on invested capital are presented based on the Company's belief that these non-GAAP measures are useful information to investors and management when comparing profitability and the efficiency with which capital has been employed over time relative to other companies.




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 adjusted to eliminate the impact of interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA as further adjusted 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 net income is defined as net income adjusted with certain items management does not consider in assessing ongoing performance. Adjusted net income per share is defined as (i) adjusted net income, (ii) divided by the number of weighted average shares outstanding. Free cash flow is defined as the net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents before financing activities, excluding any acquisitions. Adjusted SG&A is defined as selling, general and administrative expenses adjusted for non-cash stock compensation and other non-routine items. Net debt is defined as (i) total debt, net of unamortized debt discount and unamortized deferred financing costs, (ii) subtracting cash and cash equivalents. Invested capital is defined as the sum of (a) long-term operating lease liabilities, less current maturities, (b) plus long-term finance lease liabilities, less current maturities, (c) plus long-term debt, net of unamortized deferred financing cost and unamortized debt discounts, less current maturities (d) plus total stockholder's equity. Average invested capital is defined as the average of the beginning and ending invested capital. Return on invested capital is defined as (i) net income, (ii) divided by average invested capital during the period. Annualized return on invested capital is defined as (i) annualized net income for a given quarter (ii) divided by average invested capital during the period. Adjusted annualized return on invested capital is defined as (i) annualized adjusted net income for a given quarter, (ii) divided by average invested capital during the period.
