Ranger Energy Services, Inc. Announces Q4 2018 Results

Ranger Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: RNGR) (Ranger or the Company) announced today its results for its fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2018.

  • Continuation of year-to-date momentum and strengthening financial performance, in spite of fourth quarter seasonal activity impact and commodity price reductions
  • Top line growth in 2 of 3 segments driven by rate increases and asset additions
  • Diversified portfolio pays dividends with production-focused Processing Solutions offsetting year-end Well Servicing activity declines
  • The bifurcation of our historical Well Services segment into High Specification Rigs and Completion and Other Services segments

Consolidated Q4 2018 Financial Highlights

Revenues saw a sequential increase of 4% to $85.3 million, from $82.1 million in Q3.

Net income decreased $2.3 million to $1.7 million from $4.0 million in Q3. The decrease in net income position was driven by increased depreciation expense.

Adjusted EBITDA1 increased 9% to $13.7 million, from $12.6 million in Q3. The Adjusted EBITDA increase was driven by an increase in Processing Solutions and Completions and Other Services revenue along with a reduction in general and administrative (G&A) expenses partially offset by a reduction in High Spec Rig revenue.



  Adjusted EBITDA is not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). Please see Ranger Energy Services, Inc. Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited) at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

CEO Comments

Ranger continued its momentum of improving results in Q4 delivering a 9% sequential increase in Adjusted EBITDA. While we did see some year-end slowing of completion related activity along with normal seasonal declines, the strength of our diverse portfolio led by our Processing Solutions business allowed for sequential EBITDA growth. Additionally, the ongoing efforts to streamline Ranger’s corporate and administrative processes paid dividends this quarter with a material decrease in G&A expenses.

Our High Spec Rigs again experienced another sequential increase in pricing though this quarter was offset by a decrease in utilization. Our Permian wireline completions business continues to operate on a 100% dedicated basis with an average unit count of 11 during the quarter, up from nine in Q3. Our Processing Solutions business had an outstanding quarter with sequential pricing increases, two new processing units placed into service and an up-tick in installation revenue.

As we move into the current year, we are well positioned with the growth capex deployed in our 2017/2018 capital programs and have planned for 2019 to be a year with a full focus on driving efficiencies across our operations while increasing our exposure to existing and new top tier customers. While we are still taking delivery of a modest number of assets tied to our 2018 growth capital program in Q1 2019, we expect to see a strong move to free cash flow starting in the first quarter as we reap the benefits of our new built-for-purpose asset base.

Business Segment Financial Results

High Specification Rigs

High Specification Rigs segment revenue decreased 9%, or $3.4 million, to $35.3 million in Q4 from $38.7 million in Q3 2018. The decrease was driven by reduced rig utilization, as measured by average monthly hours per rig, to 154 from 178. Total rig hours decreased 13% to approximately 64,900 hours in Q4 from 74,200 in Q3. Average hourly rig rates increased 4%, or $19, to $538 from $519 in Q3, due to select price increases during Q4 and the average number of rigs in our fleet increased to 141 in Q4 from 139 in Q3. During Q4, one rig was delivered and two rigs entered service.

Operating income decreased $1.9 million to a loss of $1.0 million in Q4 from income of $0.9 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 12%, or $0.7 million, to $5.1 million in Q4 from $5.8 million in Q3. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to the decrease in revenues, as described above.

Completion and Other Services

Completion and Other Services segment revenue increased 11%, or $4.3 million, to $43.7 million in Q4 from $39.4 million in Q3 2018. The increase is primarily related to our wireline activity, with a 20% increase in quarter end wireline truck count from 10 in Q3 to 12 in Q4 along with the addition of a third and fourth pump-down spread.

Operating income decreased $0.2 million to $9.1 million in Q4 from $9.3 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA increased 3%, or $0.3 million, to $11.6 million in Q4 from $11.3 million in Q3. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was driven by increased revenue which was more than offset by a sequential increase in depreciation expense negatively impacting operating income.

Processing Solutions

Processing Solutions revenue increased 58%, or $2.3 million, to $6.3 million in Q4 from $4.0 million in Q3 2018. This increase is attributable to higher rates, additional mechanical refrigeration units placed into service and an increase in installation related revenue.

Operating income increased $1.2 million to $3.0 million in Q4 from $1.8 million in Q3. Adjusted EBITDA increased 55%, or $1.2 million, to $3.4 million in Q4 from $2.2 million in Q3. The increase in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA are attributable to increased revenues, as described above.


We ended the quarter with $20.3 million of liquidity, consisting of $17.7 million of capacity available on our revolving credit facility and $2.6 million of cash.

The Q4 cash ending balance of $2.6 million compares to $5.3 million at the end of Q3 2018. We had an outstanding draw on our revolving credit facility of $18.5 million leaving $17.7 million of capacity on a quarter end borrowing base of $36.2 million.

During 2Q 2018, we entered into a Financing Agreement in an amount of up to $40.0 million with an initial draw of $22.0 million. In Q4, the Company borrowed an additional $17.8 million, net of expenses, under the Financing Agreement. This borrowing facilitated the final payment on the outstanding balance of our new-build high spec rig program entered into in 2017.

Capital Expenditures

Total capital expenditures recorded during the quarter were $9.7 million. Of that amount, $4.4 million was related to our Completion and Other business including two new wireline units, one set of pump-down pumps and associated ancillary equipment. The total amount included $2.0 million related to service rigs, including ancillary equipment for the new high-spec rig and existing rigs. Also included was $1.9 million associated with the addition of two processing units in our Processing Solutions segment. Additions of new leased vehicles to support current growth and replacement of vehicles amount to $0.7 million.

Maintenance capital expense for the quarter was $0.7 million. Year to date maintenance capital expense totaled $1.9 million.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, net, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, acquisition-related and severance costs, impairment of goodwill, gain or loss on sale of assets and certain other items that we do not view as indicative of our ongoing performance.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure because it allows for an effective evaluation of our operating performance when compared to our peers, without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. We exclude the items listed above from net income or loss in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss determined in accordance with GAAP. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a companys financial performance, such as a companys cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are reflected in Adjusted EBITDA. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that our results will be unaffected by the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be identical to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table presents reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA, our most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The following table is a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018, in millions:
