McCoy Global Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2017 Results

EDMONTON, Aug. 11, 2017 /CNW/ – McCoy Global Inc. (“McCoy”, “McCoy Global” or “the Corporation”) (TSX:MCB) today announced its operational and financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Enhancement of McCoy Global’s strategic vision to align with industry trends;
  • Progress on several new product development initiatives including the completion of field trials of a next-generation hydraulic power tong. This technologically advanced product was specifically developed for the US land market and provides customers with superior performance and safety features while reducing the weight and footprint of the equipment on the rig;
  • Executed on operating model changes at McCoy’s Edmonton production facility to shift to a full assembly production model. This initiative will deliver long-term cost reduction and a more agile cost structure.

“For the past several years, McCoy has focused on leading the market in tubular make-up and handling equipment solutions, and while this remains an important component of our business, we have enhanced our strategy this quarter to align with customer trends we are seeing in the market,” said Jim Rakievich, President and CEO of McCoy Global. “The oil and gas industry has been experiencing a fundamental shift towards mechanized and automated technologies that will result in improved efficiency, reliability and safety performance. Critical to this technology shift is accessibility to reliable data, preferably in real-time. McCoy has been participating in this area of the market for some time with products such as the weCATTTM, WINCATT®, and weVERIFYTM. The acquisition of the assets and business of 3PS Inc. (3PS) on January 1, 2017 advanced our market position in data collection technologies and better positions us to take advantage of this growing market. In addition, we will also be focusing on a broader wellbore integrity solutions market. This will allow our team to leverage the current expertise, global brand and infrastructure within McCoy Global to broaden the scope of products and services we add to our portfolio. Tubular make-up and handling solutions will continue to play a prominent role within wellbore integrity solutions as we move forward.”

Quarterly Financial Summary

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $9.2 million, a 40% increase from Q2 2016. Industry fundamentals have improved from 2016 with the majority of this increase being driven by aftermarket and data acquisition opportunities, an improvement in the western hemisphere and increased revenues from the acquisition of 3PS. However, market uncertainty continues to create a challenging environment for customers, who deferred purchasing decisions during the quarter and remain hesitant to commit to capital equipment orders.

Gross profit percentage for the three months ended June 30, 2017 increased 56 percentage points from the second quarter of 2016. Gross profit was positively impacted by an overall increase in revenue, the sale of higher margin aftermarket products and services and reductions in production costs.

G&A expense for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $2.5 million, a $0.7 million decrease from the second quarter of 2016. The decrease is largely a result of the successful implementation of restructuring initiatives and continued spending discipline.

Sales and marketing expense for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $1.0 million, a 4% increase from the comparative quarter. Increased sales and marketing expense associated with the 3PS acquisition were offset by the impact of 2016 restructuring efforts.

Research and development costs increased in the second quarter of 2017 to $1.1 million, from $0.4 million in the comparative period. The acquisition of 3PS enhanced McCoy’s engineering team, which will contribute valuable data acquisition technology expertise. In addition, development and prototype costs were incurred, as several technology projects progressed and reached critical milestones.

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $3.1 million ($0.11 loss per basic share), compared to net loss of $19.1 million ($0.69 loss per basic share) in the second quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was ($0.9 million) compared to ($5.1 million) in the second quarter of 2016. The increase was due to improved industry fundamentals and the successful implementation of restructuring efforts to lower the Corporation’s cost structure and create a more agile and efficient organization.

At June 30, 2017, the Corporation had $17.1 million in cash and cash equivalents, of which $2.5 million is restricted, and $5.6 million in borrowings.

1 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as net (loss) earnings, before finance charges, net; income tax expense (recovery); depreciation; amortization; impairment losses; restructuring charges; other (gains) losses, net; inventory excess and obsolete charges; and share-based compensation. The Corporation reports on adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by management to evaluate performance. The Corporation believes adjusted EBITDA assists investors in assessing McCoy Global’s current operating performance on a consistent basis without regard to non-cash or non-recurring items that can vary significantly depending on accounting methods or non-operating factors. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered an alternative to net (loss) earnings in measuring McCoy Global’s performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning and is therefore not likely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. For comparative purposes, in previous financial disclosures ‘adjusted EBITDA’ was defined as “net (loss) earnings before finance charges, net, income tax expense (recovery), depreciation, amortization, impairment losses, restructuring charges, non-cash changes in fair value related to derivative financial instruments and share-based compensation.” The Corporation revised its definition of adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2016, as management believes the revised metric provides a better measure for assessing McCoy Global’s current operating performance without regard to inventory excess and obsolete charges and other gains or losses, net; which are non-cash or non-recurring in nature. Adjusted EBITDA should not be used as an exclusive measure of cash flow since it does not account for the impact of working capital changes, capital expenditures, debt changes and other sources and uses of cash, which are disclosed in the consolidated statements of cash flows.

2 The Corporation defines backlog as orders that have a high certainty of being delivered and is measured on the basis of a firm customer commitment, such as the receipt of a purchase order. Customers may default on or cancel such commitments, but several are secured by a deposit and/or require reimbursement by the customer upon default or cancellation. Backlog reflects likely future revenues; however, cancellations or reductions may occur and there can be no assurance that backlog amounts will ultimately be realized as revenue, or that the Corporation will earn a profit on backlog once fulfilled. Expected delivery dates for orders recorded in backlog historically spanned from one to six months. Under current market conditions, many customers have shifted their purchasing habits towards just-in-time buying, with a preference to standard products purchased out of finished goods inventory.

3 The book-to-bill ratio is a measure of the amount of net sales orders received to revenues recognized and billed in a set period of time. The ratio is an indicator of customer demand and sales order processing times. The book-to-bill ratio is not a GAAP measure and therefore the definition and calculation of the ratio will vary among other issuers reporting the book-to-bill ratio. McCoy Global calculates the book-to-bill ratio as net sales orders taken in the reporting period divided by the revenues reported for the same reporting period.
