Overview and Outlook

Key's Chief Executive Officer, Dick Alario, stated, "Current commodity prices have left the U.S. oilfield services industry dealing with the most precipitous and sustained activity collapse in multiple decades. Key has aggressively reshaped its organizational structure and resized its cost structure to address the realities of today's market. Key has continued to adopt the mantra of "control what we can control" and took another meaningful component of costs out of the business in the third quarter, which drove normalized G&A expenses down another 14% sequentially. Further, through the continued rationalization of our U.S. businesses, we were able to improve our U.S. normalized operating loss by approximately $3 million sequentially, even as revenue declined approximately $24 million.

Alario continued, "The structural changes implemented over the past several quarters to shift the organizational alignment of Key's U.S. operations have allowed us to maintain our service quality standards while at the same time reduce costs. The flattening of the organization has allowed us to efficiently meet our customers' needs and, thus, compete effectively in a turbulent market environment.

"Though we've taken significant costs out of the Company, we remain diligent in looking for ways to further reduce our cost burden and to preserve capital. Steps we took during the third quarter of 2015 allowed us to maintain our liquidity sequentially and, so far in the first quarter, we've enacted another meaningful cost reduction effort that should continue to reduce the Company's operating costs. Additionally, Key continues to identify and evaluate additional steps to enhance its liquidity profile.

"Finally, we disclosed in August of last year plans for my retirement from Key Energy Services during 2016 and for Robert Drummond to assume the role of Chief Executive Officer in addition to his current duties as President and Chief Operating Officer. This transition will be effective March 1st. I want to thank Key's Board for effectively and transparently leading this transition and to thank all of Key's employees for their commitment to the Company during my twelve year tenure."

U.S. Results

Fourth quarter 2015 U.S. Rig Services revenues of $77.9 million were down 8.6% as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Fourth quarter operating loss was $6.5 million, or -8.3% of revenue and includes the write-off of certain vendor deposits due to vendor insolvency or cancelled orders, loss on sale of assets and severance of $5.6 million; excluding these losses, normalized operating loss was $0.8 million, or -1.1% of revenue. These results compare to third quarter operating loss, excluding impairments, of $3.9 million, or -4.6% of revenue. Although revenue for this segment was down sequentially, normalized operating loss improved by $3.1 million as organizational cost efficiencies were realized. The U.S. Rig Services operating loss also includes $1.2 million of costs associated with mobilizing rigs from international markets to the U.S. as compared to $1.0 million the third quarter.

Fourth quarter 2015 Fluid Management Services revenues of $27.7 million were down 22.0% as compared to the third quarter of 2015.

These results compare to third quarter operating loss, excluding impairments, of $3.9 million, or -10.9% of revenue. Seasonal pressure, including fewer daylight hours and holidays as well as customer activity disruptions led to the sequential revenue decline.

Fourth quarter operating loss, excluding impairments, was $3.6 million, or -22.0% of revenue. These results compare to third quarter operating loss, excluding impairments, of $5.0 million, or -23.9% of revenue. Activity declined sequentially as new-well completion activity continued to contract due to commodity prices.

Fourth quarter 2015 Fishing & Rental Services revenues of $23.4 million were down 15.2% as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Fourth quarter operating loss was $4.7 million, or -20.1% of revenue, and includes a loss on the sale of assets and severance of $0.3 million; excluding these losses, normalized operating loss was $4.4 million, or -18.7% of revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA does not exclude costs incurred in connection with the Company's on-going FCPA investigations.

"EBITDA" is defined as income or loss attributable to Key before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization.

"Adjusted EBITDA" is EBITDA as further adjusted for certain non-recurring or extraordinary items such as loss on debt extinguishment, certain other gains or losses, asset retirements and impairments, and certain non-recurring transaction or other costs.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures that are used as supplemental financial measures by the Company's management and directors and by external users of the Company's financial statements, such as investors, to assess:

  • The financial performance of the Company's assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis;
  • The ability of the Company's assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest on its indebtedness;
  • The Company's operating performance and return on invested capital as compared to those of other companies in the well services industry, without regard to financing methods and capital structure; and
  • Company's operating trends underlying the items that tend to be of a non-recurring nature.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating income, cash flow from operating activities, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income and operating income and these measures may vary among other companies. Limitations to using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as an analytical tool include:


  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect Key's current or future requirements for capital expenditures or capital commitments;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements necessary to service, interest or principal payments on Key's debt;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect income taxes;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • Other companies in Key's industry may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than Key does, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure; and
  • and Adjusted EBITDA are a different calculation from earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization as defined for purposes of the financial covenants in the Company's senior secured credit facility, and therefore should not be relied upon for assessing compliance with covenants.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any statements as to matters that are not of historic fact are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on Key's current expectations, estimates and projections about Key, its industry, its management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, and include statements regarding future oil and natural gas prices, anticipated cost savings from our cost saving initiatives, available liquidity and steps to enhance our liquidity, estimated capital expenditures, future operational and activity expectations, and anticipated financial performance. No assurance can be given that such expectations, estimates or projections will prove to have been correct. Whenever possible, these "forward-looking statements" are identified by words such as "expects," "believes," "anticipates" and similar phrases.

Readers are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict, including, but not limited to:  risks that Key will be unable to achieve its financial, capital expenditure and operational projections, including quarterly and annual projections of revenue and/or operating income and risks that Key's expectations regarding future activity levels, customer demand, and pricing stability may not materialize (whether for Key as a whole or for geographic regions and/or business segments individually); risks that fundamentals in the U.S. oil and gas markets may not yield anticipated future growth in Key's businesses, or could further deteriorate or worsen from  the recent market declines, and/or that Key could experience further unexpected declines in activity and demand for its rig service, fluid management service, coiled tubing service, and fishing and rental service businesses; risks relating to Key's ability to implement technological developments and enhancements; risks relating to compliance with environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, as well as actions by governmental and regulatory authorities; risks relating to compliance with the FCPA and anti-corruption laws, including risks related to increased costs in connection with FCPA investigations; risks regarding the timing or conclusion of the FCPA investigations, including the risk of fines or penalties imposed by government agencies for violations of the FCPA; risks affecting Key's international operations, including risks affecting Key's ability to execute its plans to withdraw from its international markets outside North America; risks that Key may be unable to achieve the benefits expected from acquisition and disposition transactions, and risks associated with integration of the acquired operations into Key's operations; risks, in responding to changing or declining market conditions, that Key may not be able to reduce, and could even experience increases in, the costs of labor, fuel, equipment and supplies employed and used in Key's businesses; risks relating to changes in the demand for or the price of oil and natural gas; risks that Key may not be able to execute its capital expenditure program and/or that any such capital expenditure investments, if made, will not generate adequate returns; risks relating to Key's ability to satisfy listing requirements for its equity securities; risks that Key may not have sufficient liquidity and may not be successful in achieving steps to enhance its liquidity profile; risks relating to Key's ability to comply with covenants under its current credit facilities rendering the liquidity provided by those facilities unavailable and resulting in an event of default; and other risks affecting Key's ability to maintain or improve operations, including its ability to maintain prices for services under market pricing pressures, weather risks, and the impact of potential increases in general and administrative expenses.

Because such statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside of Key's control, Key's actual results and performance may differ materially from the results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Other important risk factors that may affect Key's business, results of operations and financial position are discussed in its most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K, recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, recent Current Reports on Form 8-K and in other Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Unless otherwise required by law, Key also disclaims any obligation to update its view of any such risks or uncertainties or to announce publicly the result of any revisions to the forward-looking statements made here. However, readers should review carefully reports and documents that Key files periodically with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
