Deep Down Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

Aug 11, 2015, 09:00 ET from Deep Down, Inc.

HOUSTON, Aug. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Deep Down, Inc. (OTCQX: DPDW) ("Deep Down" or the "Company"), an oilfield services company specializing in complex deepwater and ultra-deepwater oil production distribution system support services, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.   

OPERATING RESULTS

For the second quarter of 2015, Deep Down reported net income of $0.2 million, or $0.01 income per fully diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.08 loss per diluted share for the second quarter of 2014.

Revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 were $6.8 million, compared to revenues of $5.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.  The $1.0 million (16 percent) increase is due primarily to a return to normal revenue levels, as we experienced significant project delays in the 2014 period.

Gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $2.2 million, or 33 percent of revenues, compared to gross profit of $1.8 million, or 31 percent of revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The $0.4 million increase in gross profit is primarily attributable to the previously mentioned return to normal revenue levels in the 2015 period.

Operating expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $2.1 million, compared to operating expense of $2.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The $0.8 million decrease in operating expense is primarily attributable to reductions in Panama exit and related costs, share-based compensation amortization, bad debts, and property taxes.

The Company's management evaluates its financial performance based on a non-GAAP measure, Modified EBITDA, which consists of earnings (net income or loss) available to common shareholders before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and other non-cash and non-recurring charges. Modified EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $0.9 million compared to Modified EBITDA of negative $0.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.  The $1.2 million increase is primarily attributable to a $0.6 million increase in gross profit before depreciation, and a $0.4 million decrease in operating expense before Panama exit costs, share-based compensation and depreciation and amortization, both as a result of reasons discussed previously. At June 30, 2015, we had working capital of $15.2 million, including cash and cash equivalents of $4.7 million.

Ronald E. Smith, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "During these difficult times, we continue to focus on cost containment, improving our efficiency and assisting our customers with solutions that will reduce their costs. We will also focus on maintaining a strong balance sheet."
