Exterran Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

Company Announces Middle East Contract Operations Project Award

Fourth Quarter 2016 Bookings of $231 Million, Highest in the last Eight Quarters

HOUSTON--()--Exterran Corporation (NYSE: EXTN) (“Exterran” or the “Company”) today announced a net loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2016 of $26.6 million, or $0.77 per share, on revenue of $231.3 million. This compares to net loss from continuing operations of $32.3 million, or $0.93 per share, on revenue of $229.2 million for the third quarter of 2016 and net loss from continuing operations of $22.4 million, or $0.66 per share, on revenue of $398.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2015.

The Company also announced it has been awarded a 10-year contract to build, own and operate a processing and treating facility for a customer operating in the Middle East, valued at more than $250 million. The Company will design, construct and install the facility with operational start scheduled for the latter part of 2018.

Andrew Way, Exterran's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our fourth quarter results were in line with our expectations. The resiliency of our contract operations business model was evident as we partially offset anticipated lower revenue with cost productivity gains, resulting in a higher gross margin percentage from third quarter levels. Low bookings early in 2016 coupled with our decision to maintain a certain level of manufacturing capacity resulted in low oil and gas product sales margins. As anticipated, maintaining manufacturing capacity was prudent given our increased level of bookings during the second half of 2016, culminating with fourth quarter bookings of $230.8 million, as well as the Middle East project award in our contract operations segment."

Mr. Way continued, "The project award is another indication of our strong brand, reputation and experience providing effective solutions to our customers' production and midstream infrastructure needs. It also adds to our existing base of recurring and stable revenue and cash flow associated with our international contract operations business model. Contract operations projects internationally, and our increasing oil and gas product sales bookings resulting from higher demand in certain U.S. basins, give us a balanced business model and portfolio with access to growing market areas and opportunities around the world."

Adjusted net loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $17.9 million, or $0.52 per share. This compares to adjusted net loss from continuing operations of $12.4 million, or $0.36 per share, for the third quarter of 2016 and adjusted net loss from continuing operations of $7.8 million, or $0.23 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2015. Excluded from adjusted net loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2016 were pre-tax expenses of $9.1 million in non-cash long-lived impairment charges primarily related to the Company's contract operations business and $2.0 million in restructuring costs, partially offset by $1.3 million in net restatement recoveries. See table below for reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $26.8 million. This compares to net loss of $12.7 million for the third quarter of 2016 and net loss of $4.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015.

EBITDA, as adjusted, was $28.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, as compared with EBITDA, as adjusted, of $38.0 million for the third quarter of 2016 and $57.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. See table below for reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $41.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, as compared with $37.9 million in the third quarter of 2016 and $52.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The sequential increase was primarily due to severance and other personnel-related expenses resulting from staff and structure changes.

Contract Operations Segment

Contract operations revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $93.9 million, a 5% decrease from third quarter 2016 revenue of $99.1 million and a 22% decline from fourth quarter 2015 revenue of $119.9 million.

Contract operations gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $61.2 million, a 3% decrease from third quarter 2016 gross margin of $63.1 million and a 21% decline from fourth quarter 2015 gross margin of $77.7 million. Gross margin percentage in the fourth quarter of 2016 was 65%, as compared with 64% in the third quarter of 2016 and 65% in the fourth quarter of 2015.

The sequential revenue and gross margin decreases were primarily due to contractual recoveries benefiting third quarter results that did not repeat, and a contractual project stop.

Aftermarket Services Segment

Aftermarket services revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $29.1 million, a 9% increase from third quarter 2016 revenue of $26.6 million and a 10% decrease from fourth quarter 2015 revenue of $32.3 million.

Aftermarket services gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $7.2 million, a 5% decrease from third quarter 2016 gross margin of $7.5 million and a 19% decrease from fourth quarter 2015 gross margin of $8.8 million. Gross margin percentage in the fourth quarter of 2016 was 25%, as compared with 28% in the third quarter of 2016 and 27% in the fourth quarter of 2015.

The sequential increase in aftermarket service revenue was driven primarily by an increase in Eastern Hemisphere parts sales. Gross margin was lower due to business mix.

Oil and Gas Product Sales Segment

Oil and gas product sales revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $77.7 million, a 5% increase from third quarter 2016 revenue of $73.7 million, and a 64% decrease from fourth quarter 2015 revenue of $214.1 million.

Oil and gas product sales gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $2.5 million, a 32% decrease from third quarter 2016 gross margin of $3.6 million and a 90% decrease from fourth quarter 2015 gross margin of $24.7 million. Gross margin percentage in the fourth quarter of 2016 was 3% as compared with 5% in the third quarter of 2016 and 12% in the fourth quarter of 2015.

The sequential increase in revenue was primarily due to an increase in compression and processing equipment sales, resulting from higher activity in North America. This was partially offset by lower production equipment sales. Gross margin was lower primarily due to pricing and underabsorption of fixed costs due to management's decision to maintain a certain level of manufacturing capacity.

Oil and gas product sales backlog was $306.2 million at December 31, 2016, as compared to $153.1 million at September 30, 2016 and $267.4 million at December 31, 2015. Oil and gas product sales bookings for the fourth quarter of 2016 were $230.8 million, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 297%. This compares to bookings of $132.3 million for the third quarter of 2016 and bookings of $172.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015.

Belleli EPC Product Sales Segment

As previously disclosed, the Company is in the process of exiting the non-core business lines of Belleli EPC. Fourth quarter results for the period were in line with the Company's internal expectations as revenue was $30.7 million and gross margin was a negative $1.7 million. The remaining backlog is approximately $64 million and the Company anticipates exiting the business by early 2018.

Project execution delays on significant projects prior to 2016 resulted in accrued contract loss provisions recorded in prior years, which in turn base-lined gross margin for such projects at near break-even in the current year periods.

(1) Management evaluates the performance of each of the Company’s segments based on gross margin. Total gross margin, a non-GAAP measure, is included as a supplemental disclosure because it is a primary measure used by our management to evaluate the results of revenue and cost of sales (excluding depreciation and amortization expense), which are key components of our operations. Management believes gross margin is important supplemental information for investors because it focuses on the current performance of our operations and excludes the impact of the prior historical costs of the assets acquired or constructed that are utilized in those operations, the indirect costs associated with our SG&A activities, the impact of our financing methods, restatement charges (recoveries), restructuring and other charges, and income taxes. In addition, the inclusion of depreciation and amortization expense may not accurately reflect the costs required to maintain and replenish the operational usage of our assets and therefore may not portray the costs from current operating activity.
 
(2) Management believes EBITDA, as adjusted, is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors and others to evaluate and compare our core operating results from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure (interest expense from outstanding debt), asset base (depreciation and amortization), our subsidiaries’ capital structure (non-cash gains or losses from foreign currency exchange rate changes on intercompany obligations), tax consequences, impairment charges, restatement charges (recoveries), restructuring and other charges, expensed acquisition costs and other items. Management uses EBITDA, as adjusted, as supplemental measures to review current period operating performance, comparability measures and performance measures for period to period comparisons. In addition, the Company's compensation committee has used EBITDA, as adjusted, in evaluating the performance of the Company and management and in evaluating certain components of executive compensation, including performance-based annual incentive programs.
 
(3) The tax impacts of adjustments were based on the Company’s statutory tax rates applicable to each item in the appropriate taxing jurisdictions. Using statutory tax rates for presentation of the non-GAAP measures allows a consistent basis for investors to understand financial performance of the Company across historical periods. The overall effective tax rate on adjustments was impacted by non-taxable proceeds from sale of joint venture assets for applicable periods and the inability to recognize tax benefits from charges in jurisdictions that are in cumulative loss positions.
 
(4) Management believes adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations and diluted adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations per common share provide useful information to investors because it allows management, investors and others to evaluate and compare our core operating results from period to period by removing the impact of impairment charges, restructuring and other charges, restatement charges (recoveries), expensed acquisition costs and other items not appropriately reflective of our core business.
