·10-min read
  • Revenue of $155 million, a 5% sequential increase

  • Orders of $165 million and book-to-bill ratio of 1.06

  • Net loss of $9 million and diluted EPS of negative $1.62

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $9 million, a sequential increase of $5 million, or 112%

HOUSTON, May 05, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) today announced first quarter 2022 revenue of $155 million, an increase of $7 million from the fourth quarter 2021. Net loss for the quarter was $9 million, or $1.62 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $20 million, or $3.46 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2021. Excluding special items, adjusted net loss was $2.00 per diluted share in the first quarter 2022 compared to an adjusted net loss of $2.23 per diluted share in the fourth quarter 2021. Adjusted EBITDA was $9 million in the first quarter 2022, an improvement of approximately $5 million from the fourth quarter 2021.

Special items in the first quarter 2022, on a pre-tax basis, included $6 million of foreign exchange gains partially offset by $4 million of restructuring, transaction and other costs. See Tables 1-5 for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial information.

Neal Lux, President and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, "Stronger industry fundamentals combined with outstanding execution by our team drove FET's first quarter performance. We are overcoming the supply chain issues experienced in the second half of 2021 by investing in key raw materials and components to meet growing demand. Price increases began to flow through the income statement and we expect the trend to accelerate in future quarters. With these efforts, EBITDA more than doubled on a sequential basis to $9 million and was up 344% year-over-year.

"Demand for our products and advanced technology solutions remains robust. We have achieved six consecutive quarters of bookings in excess of revenue and our backlog is over $200 million for the first time since 2019. Looking ahead, we anticipate our backlog and continued order growth will further improve revenue and EBITDA. We forecast second quarter revenue to be between $160 and $170 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $11 to $14 million. On a full year basis, we continue to expect adjusted EBITDA of $50 to $60 million.

"On a year-over-basis, revenue and adjusted EBITDA grew by 36% and 344%, respectively. We are confident that this strong momentum will continue in the second quarter and beyond. Our consumable businesses will benefit from increased drilling and completions activity. Furthermore, our customers‘ underinvestment in capital equipment since 2014 has reduced the capacity of the oilfield service industry. As a result, significant increases in activity will require additional capital spending by our domestic and international customers. This will translate to higher revenues for FET and rapid profit growth due to our strong operating leverage and net price increases."

Segment Results

Drilling & Downhole segment revenue was $71 million, an increase of 7% from the fourth quarter 2021, led by fulfillment of subsea capital equipment orders for international customers, and higher demand for drilling capital equipment in connection with increasing activity levels. Orders were $71 million, a 17% sequential increase which included significant order growth in both our drilling and downhole product lines. Segment adjusted EBITDA was $9 million, a $3 million sequential increase resulting from the higher revenue levels and favorable sales mix. The Drilling & Downhole segment designs and manufactures capital equipment and consumable products for global well construction, artificial lift and subsea markets.

Completions segment revenue was $53 million, a 3% sequential increase driven by increased sales of our wireline products for the well intervention market. Orders were $54 million, a sequential increase of $1 million, or 2%, due to orders for new product offerings in our stimulation and intervention product line. Segment adjusted EBITDA was $5 million, in line with the fourth quarter. The Completions segment designs and manufactures products for the coiled tubing, wireline and stimulation markets.

Production segment revenue was $32 million, an increase of $1 million, or 2% from the fourth quarter 2021 driven by higher valve sales into the downstream market. Orders in the first quarter were $40 million, a 12% sequential decrease, due to full-year orders received for well-site production equipment in the fourth quarter 2021 for fulfillment throughout 2022. Segment adjusted EBITDA was negative $1 million, an improvement of $1 million from the fourth quarter 2021. The Production segment designs and manufactures land well site production equipment, desalination process equipment, and a wide range of valves for upstream, midstream and process industry customers.
