Superior Energy Services, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

30 Jul, 2014, 16:15 ET from Superior Energy Services, Inc.

HOUSTON, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Superior Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: SPN) today announced net income from continuing operations of $79.1 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, and net income of $75.2 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, on revenue of $1,107.6 million for the second quarter of 2014.

These results compare with the second quarter of 2013 net income from continuing operations of $74.1 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, and net income of $68.6 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, on revenue of $1,091.1 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded net income from continuing operations of $121.7 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, and net income of $111.8 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, on revenue of $2,169.0 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company recorded net income from continuing operations of $154.7 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, and net income of $132.3 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, on revenue of $2,178.0 million.

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company repurchased and retired approximately 1.7 million shares of its common stock for a total purchase price of $34.3 million (average price of $31.09). Year-to-date, the Company has repurchased and retired approximately 5.2 million shares of its common stock for a total purchase price of $164.1 million (average price of $31.41).

David Dunlap, President and CEO of the Company, commented, "Our second quarter results exceeded our expectations. We posted strong incremental operating margins in three of our four segments, primarily due to ongoing increases in U.S. land activity. These include improvements seen in horizontal well fracturing and well service rigs in the Onshore Completion and Workover Services segment, as well as in coiled tubing, pressure control, wireline, and remedial pumping in the Production Services segment.

"Our U.S. land revenue increased 6% from the first quarter of 2014 as compared to a 4% increase in the average number of rigs drilling in the U.S. land market. Our Gulf of Mexico revenue was flat sequentially as seasonal increases in service activity were offset by lower revenue from the Drilling Products and Services segment. International revenue increased 3% sequentially mainly driven by increases in production-related services."

Second Quarter 2014 Geographic Breakdown

U.S. land market revenue was approximately $721.3 million in the second quarter of 2014, as compared with $723.3 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $681.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. Gulf of Mexico market revenue was approximately $211.7 million, as compared with $208.1 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $211.0 million in the first quarter of 2014. International market revenue was approximately $174.6 million, as compared with $159.7 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $169.1 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Drilling Products and Services Segment

Drilling Products and Services segment revenue was $226.0 million, a 10% increase from second quarter 2013 revenue of $205.4 million and a 3% increase from first quarter 2014 revenue of $220.2 million.

The primary factor driving the higher sequential revenue in this segment was a 21% increase in U.S. land market revenue to $81.7 million due to increased rentals of bottom hole assemblies and premium drill pipe. International market revenue was essentially unchanged at $51.5 million as increased rentals of premium drill pipe were offset by a decline in bottom hole assembly rentals. Gulf of Mexico market revenue decreased 9% sequentially to $92.8 million due to decreased rentals of premium drill pipe and surface rentals.

Onshore Completion and Workover Services Segment

Onshore Completion and Workover Services segment revenue in the second quarter was $398.1 million, virtually unchanged from second quarter 2013 revenue of $398.2 million, and a 2% increase from first quarter 2014 revenue of $389.9 million. Practically all of the revenue in this segment is generated from U.S. land market areas.

On a sequential basis, revenue increases in pressure pumping and well service rigs was partially offset by lower fluid management revenue as a result of less heating-related activity.

Income from operations as a percentage of revenue improved significantly on a sequential basis to 8% as compared with 2% in the first quarter of 2014, resulting from increased utilization in pressure pumping.

Production Services Segment

Production Services segment revenue was $343.9 million, a 7% decrease from second quarter 2013 revenue of $369.1 million and a 7% increase from first quarter 2014 revenue of $321.2 million.

U.S. land market revenue increased 6% sequentially to $214.6 million, primarily due to increased demand for coiled tubing, pressure control, wireline and remedial pumping services. International market revenue increased 8% sequentially to $90.9 million primarily due to higher demand for pressure control tools and snubbing services. Gulf of Mexico market revenue increased 11% to $38.4 million due to increases in coiled tubing and cased hole wireline services.

Technical Solutions Segment

Technical Solutions segment revenue was $139.6 million, an 18% increase from second quarter 2013 revenue of $118.4 million and a 7% increase from first quarter 2014 revenue of $130.1 million.

Gulf of Mexico market revenue increased 7% sequentially to $80.4 million due to seasonal increases in plug and abandonment services as well as completion tools and services. U.S. land market revenue increased 24% sequentially to $27.0 million primarily related to increases in well control services and completion tools.  International market revenue declined 4% to $32.2 million as a result of a decrease in well control activity.
