Oil States Updates Third Quarter 2018 Guidance

HOUSTON, Oct. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oil States International, Inc. (NYSE:OIS) announced today updated financial estimates for the third quarter of 2018 primarily due to $3.5 million of legal expenses incurred for patent defense and $2.6 million reserved for prior years’ Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) claim settlements. Oil States was also negatively impacted by lower revenues and under-absorption of manufacturing facility costs primarily in its Offshore/Manufactured Products segment due to revenue slippage and the delay of certain project awards. The Well Site Services segment incurred higher than expected repair and maintenance and equipment rental expenses.

As communicated on the second quarter 2018 earnings conference call, consolidated revenues were expected to range between $273 and $298 million. Currently, the Company anticipates unaudited third quarter revenues at the low end of the guided range, totaling approximately $275 million, an unaudited operating loss of approximately $4 million and EBITDA (Note A) of approximately $28 million inclusive of the aforementioned items. These amounts are not yet final and are subject to change as the Company completes its financial statement close process for the quarter.

Oil States will provide a more detailed update on its third quarter 2018 earnings conference call scheduled for October 29, 2018.

The tables below provide a summary of currently expected third quarter 2018 results.

(A) The term Segment EBITDA consists of operating income (loss) plus depreciation and amortization expense, and certain other items as set forth in the table above.  Segment EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles and should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for operating income (loss) or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.  Additionally, Segment EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.  The Company has included Segment EBITDA as a supplemental disclosure because its management believes that Segment EBITDA provides useful information regarding its ability to service debt and to fund capital expenditures and provides investors a helpful measure for comparing its operating performance with the performance of other companies that have different financing and capital structures or tax rates.  The Company uses Segment EBITDA to compare and to monitor the performance of its business segments to other comparable public companies and as a benchmark for the award of incentive compensation under its annual incentive compensation plan.  The table above set forth reconciliations of Segment EBITDA to operating income (loss), which is the most directly comparable measure of financial performance calculated under generally accepted accounting principles.
