AB Klaipėdos nafta interim financial information regarding the first three months of 2017

28 April 2017 - 1:00am

AB Klaipėdos nafta (hereinafter – KN, the Company) announces the unaudited financial results for the first three month period ended 31 March 2017.

  • AB Klaipėdos nafta revenues for the first three months of 2017 comprise EUR 27,280 thousand, 10.8% less compared to the same period of 2016 (EUR 30,596 thousand);
  • Net profit of the Company comprise EUR 4,812 thousand, 29.8% less compared to the same period of 2016 (EUR 6,857 thousand), net profit margin – 17.6 per cent (in the same period of 2016 – 22,4 per cent).
  • Company’s EBITDA for the first three months of 2017 comprise EUR 8,716 thousand, 20,0% less compared to the same period of the year 2016 (EUR 10,888 thousand), EBITDA margin – 32.0 per cent (in the same period of 2016 – 35.6 per cent).

 

Management comment:

In the first half of 2016 achieved activities record high results in 2017 have changed as a result of the negative external economical and geopolitical factors. The year 2017 for AB Klaipedos nafta has started with the challenges which negatively reflected Company’s financial results but which are gradually overcome.

Total transhipment in KN’s oil terminals of Klaipeda and Subacius in the first quarter of 2017 comprised 1.55 million tons of petroleum products or by 33% less comparing to the same period of 2016 when 2.3 million tons were transhipped. The main reason of the transhipment volume decrease is related with geopolitical factors in the region. From the second half of 2016 the crude oil supply to Belarussian refineries has been significantly reduced that resulted in decrease of oil refinery and accordingly oil products export through the Company’s terminal. In April the crude oil supply started recovering and it is expected for the transhipment volumes increase in the nearly future.

The petroleum products transhipment of AB ORLEN Lietuva remained stable except temporary reduction in March when its refinery was stopped for a planned turnaround. On the other side after the Company modernized its auto carriers loading unit the transhipment volumes loaded through this infrastructure has significantly increased and partially compensated overall decrease in transhipment volumes.

LNG terminal regasification volume in Q1 of 2017 was 1.5 million MWh or less by 70% comparing to the same period of 2016 when 5.1 million MWh have been regasified. The higher regasification volume is expected in the remaining periods of 2017 because AB Achema has reserved additional capacities of the terminal and global LNG prices are tended to reduce in summer.

KN Oil terminals’ revenues in 2017 reduced proportionally with the transhipment volumes decrease and for the Q1 comprised EUR 8.7 million, i.e. reduced by 30% comparing to the same period of 2016. The revenues of the KN LNG terminal for the reporting period comprised EUR 18.5 million when in the same period of 2016 – EUR 18.1 million.

Despite the fact that activity volumes and revenues has decreased in a light of record 2016 Q1 KN activity in 2017 Q1 ensures stable, effective activity results. The unaudited net profit for reporting period comprises EUR 4.8 million, net profit margin – 17.6%. EBITDA comprise EUR 8.7 million, EBITDA margin – 31.9%. These results properly reflect the expectations of the KN management and allow expect a stable performance in the future.

Enclosed:

  1. Unaudited interim condensed Financial Statements of AB Klaipėdos nafta for the three months period ended 31 March 2017.
  2. Presentation of the financial result for the 3 month period of 2017.

Maurel & Prom : 2017 Q1 sales: €90 million

27 April 2017 - 10:46am

Paris, 27 April 2017
 No. 11-17

2017 Q1 sales: €90 million

Stable in sequential (vs Q4 2016) thanks to a favorable price effect but an unfavorable quantity effect in Gabon

Increase in annual (vs Q1 2016) thanks to a very favorable price effect

   



The Group's consolidated sales for the first quarter of 2017 totalled €90 million, broken down as follows:

                   Q2 2016 Q3 2016 Q4 2016   Q1 2017 Chg.

Sales trends reflected a sharp rise in the average selling price of oil produced in Gabon (up 11% versus Q4 2016 and up 62% versus Q1 2016) while volumes sold were relatively stable compared to Q1 2016 (down 3%) but lower compared to Q4 2016 (down 14%).

The average selling price of oil has followed the rise in the market reference price, i.e. Brent. It has also benefited from higher prices for Rabi Light crude oil, which is discounted compared to Brent and averaged US$3.45/bbl in Q1 2016, US$1.49/bbl in Q4 2016 and US$1.35/bbl in Q1 2017.

Oil production in Q1 2017 stood at 19,442 bopd for M&P working interest (80 %), or 24,303 bopd for operated production. This level was below the fields' production capacity, which had been impacted by a strike that disrupted operations.

In Tanzania, gas output was 20.8 MMcf/d (M&P share: 48.06%), almost the same as the 2016 average (20.7 MMcf/d). Gas production capacity on the Mnazi Bay permit is currently around 80 MMcf/d for average operated production of around 43 MMcf/d (at 100%). This production level depends on industrial gas consumption in Dar Es Salam, which is routed through TPDC buying from the operator.

U.S. Geothermal Inc. Provides Update on Raft River Expansion Program

27 April 2017 - 8:00am

BOISE, Idaho, April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Geothermal Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE MKT:HTM), a leading and profitable renewable energy company focused on the development, production, and sale of electricity from geothermal energy, is pleased to provide an update on its Raft River expansion project.

Phase II of the ongoing plan to increase the output at Raft River from its current generation level of 10 MWs, up to its contract maximum of 13 MWs, commenced in March with the successful installation of the pump in well RRG-5.  Production from RRG-5 started on March 21, 2017 and is currently operating at the rate of 1,100 gallons per minute.  The addition of this flow to the plant has increased net power production by approximately 0.71 MWs. 

“We are pleased to report success from this initial step of work at Raft River, and we expect to have additional increases in generation over the quarter as we upgrade downstream equipment,” said Douglas Glaspey, President and COO.  “We remain optimistic that the positive results at Raft River, coupled with our ongoing hybrid cooling efforts at Neal Hot Springs will move us toward our short-term goal of increasing generation from our existing projects.”

To date, the reservoir response has been significantly better than projected, with minimal drawdown in well RRG-5 and no impact to water level in the adjoining wells.  The well temperature is currently stable at over 247°F.   The next step to optimize output from the wellfield is to increase the capacity of the injection system. After an injection pump is upgraded, a further increase in fluid flow to the plant is expected, which will result in a corresponding increase in generation, plus allow for additional production well increases.   

About U.S. Geothermal Inc.:
U.S. Geothermal Inc. is a leading and profitable renewable energy company focused on the development, production and sale of electricity from geothermal energy. The Company is currently operating geothermal power projects at Neal Hot Springs, Oregon, San Emidio, Nevada and Raft River, Idaho for a total power generation of approximately 45 MWs. The Company is also developing an additional estimated 115 MWs of projects at: the Geysers, California; a second phase project at San Emidio, Nevada; at Crescent Valley, Nevada; and the El Ceibillo project located near Guatemala City, Guatemala.  U.S. Geothermal’s growth goal is to reach over 200 MWs of generation by 2021 through a combination of internal development and strategic acquisitions.

Franklin Electric Reports First Quarter 2017 Sales and Earnings

27 April 2017 - 7:00am

FORT WAYNE, Ind., April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ:FELE) reported first quarter 2017 GAAP fully diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.33, versus a GAAP fully diluted EPS in the first quarter 2016 of $0.28, an increase of 18 percent.  First quarter 2017 sales were $220.3 million, an increase of 1 percent compared to 2016 first quarter sales of $218.4 million.  The Company’s organic sales growth was 1 percent as the impact of foreign currency translation was not significant.

Gregg Sengstack, Franklin Electric’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“We are pleased to report increased sales and earnings for the first quarter.  Our Fueling Systems segment achieved record first quarter sales and earnings and posted organic sales growth of 9 percent and our Water business outside the U.S. and Canada grew organically as well, with particularly strong results in Latin America.  Gross profit and gross profit margins both improved over the first quarter 2016.  Despite these improvements, our operating income declined in the quarter due to higher marketing and selling costs.  During the first quarter, we recognized discrete tax benefits that more than offset the operating income decline and allowed us to achieve an 18 percent increase in EPS.”

Water Systems

Water Systems sales were $167.2 million in the first quarter 2017, a decrease of $1.6 million or about 1 percent versus the first quarter 2016 sales of $168.8 million.  Water Systems organic sales were also down about 1 percent compared to the first quarter 2016.

Water Systems sales in the U.S. and Canada were down about 8 percent compared to the prior year first quarter. On April 10, 2017, the Company announced the acquisition of three distribution companies in the U.S. groundwater market.  Groundwater sales declined about $7 million, of which approximately $6 million is attributable to the decision by the leadership of the acquired distribution companies to reduce their holdings of Franklin Electric inventory in anticipation of the acquisitions.

Outside of the sales to the acquired distribution companies, U.S. and Canada sales of groundwater pumping equipment were down about 4 percent due to higher channel inventory levels from significant fourth quarter 2016 purchases and to a lesser extent, adverse weather, especially in the West.  U.S. and Canada sales of dewatering equipment increased by 12 percent in the first quarter when compared to the prior year and sales of other surface pumping equipment declined by 3 percent.

Water Systems sales in markets outside the U.S. and Canada experienced overall growth of about 5 percent, of which about 1 percent was attributable to the impact of foreign currency translation.  International Water Systems sales growth was led by improved sales in the Latin American region which had organic sales growth of 11 percent, after excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. Sales in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific markets also grew organically in the quarter compared to last year excluding the impact of foreign currency translation.

Water Systems operating income was $21.4 million in the first quarter 2017, down $2.8 million or 12 percent versus the first quarter 2016 and operating income margin was 12.8 percent, a decline of 150 basis points from 14.3 percent in the first quarter 2016. Water Systems first quarter 2017 operating income and operating income margins before restructuring expenses were $21.7 million and 13.0 percent respectively.  The decline in Water Systems operating income and operating income margin is primarily attributed to lower sales volume and higher marketing and selling expenses.

Fueling Systems

Fueling Systems sales were $53.1 million in the first quarter 2017, an increase of $3.5 million or about 7 percent versus the first quarter 2016 sales of $49.6 million.  Fueling Systems sales decreased by $0.8 million or about 2 percent in the quarter due to foreign currency translation. Fueling Systems sales increased about 9 percent, after excluding foreign currency translation. 

Fueling Systems sales in the U.S. and Canada grew by about 7 percent during the quarter.  The increase was primarily in pumping and fuel management systems.  Outside of the U.S. and Canada, Fueling Systems revenues also grew by about 7 percent, led by stronger sales in Asia Pacific, especially China.  This growth was partially offset by a sales decline in Latin America.

Fueling Systems operating income was $11.0 million in the first quarter of 2017, up $0.8 million or about 8 percent compared to $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2016 and the first quarter operating income margin was 20.7 percent, an increase of 10 basis points from the 20.6 percent of net sales in the first quarter of 2016.

Overall

The Company’s consolidated gross profit was $75.8 million for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of $1.6 million, or about 2 percent, from the first quarter of 2016 gross profit of $74.2 million. The gross profit as a percent of net sales was 34.4 percent in the first quarter of 2017 and increased about 40 basis points versus 34.0 percent during the first quarter 2016.  The gross profit margin increase was primarily due to favorable pricing and lower direct material costs, partially offset by higher fixed costs.

Selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $57.0 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $52.3 million in the first quarter of the prior year, an increase of $4.7 million or about 9 percent.  Sales related support cost, including marketing and selling related expenses, increased by about $3.3 million and transaction and other costs associated with the recently acquired distribution companies were about $0.8 million. 

The Company realized discrete income tax benefits related to foreign net operating losses and currency exchange losses in the first quarter of 2017 which lowered the consolidated effective tax rate to about 1 percent.  The effective tax rate in the first quarter 2016 was about 27 percent.

The Company ended the first quarter of 2017 with a cash balance of about $71 million versus about $104 million at the end of 2016, down due primarily to increased inventory.  Inventory levels at the end of the first quarter 2017 were $236 million versus year end 2016 of $203 million. The inventory increase is primarily due to seasonal demand and due to lower than anticipated sales of groundwater pumping equipment in the U.S. and Canada markets.

Commenting on the outlook, Mr. Sengstack said:

“Despite the slow start in the U.S. and Canada groundwater markets, we remain positive about the balance of 2017 and our ability to achieve organic top line growth in the five to seven percent range for our pre-acquisition segments.  This growth allows us to reaffirm our 2017 adjusted earnings per share guidance range of $1.77 to $1.87.

As we had previously announced on April 10, our forward integration into distribution in the U.S. through the creation of the Headwater Distribution segment is a logical next step for Franklin Electric to serve and grow in the U.S. groundwater market.  We will begin reporting results for the new segment in the second quarter 2017.”

A conference call to review earnings and other developments in the business will commence at 9:00 am EDT.  The first quarter 2017 earnings call will be available via a live webcast.  The webcast will be available in a listen only mode by going to:

DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2017 Results

27 April 2017 - 6:00am

New leases total 34.42 MW YTD

Double Digit Revenue, Earnings Per Share, Normalized FFO per share and AFFO growth

WASHINGTON, April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE:DFT) announces results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  All per share results are reported on a fully diluted basis.

Highlights

  • As of April 27, 2017, our operating portfolio was 99% leased and commenced as measured by critical load (in megawatts, or "MW") and computer room square feet ("CRSF"), and 51% of the MW under development have been pre-leased.
  • First Quarter 2017 Highlights:
       •  Double digit growth rates versus prior year quarter:
          •  Revenue: +12%
          •  Earnings per share: +25%
          •  Normalized Funds from Operations ("FFO") per share: +15%
          •  Adjusted FFO ("AFFO"): +40%
       •  Executed two leases totaling 5.62 MW and 34,636 CRSF with a weighted average lease term of 6.5 years.  One of these leases, which totals 4.2 MW and 25,686 CRSF, was disclosed in our fourth quarter 2016 earnings release.
       •  Executed one lease amendment for the remaining 4,307 CRSF in ACC7 with a term of 9.7 years.
  • Second Quarter 2017 Highlights to date:
       •  Executed three pre-leases totaling 28.80 MW and 161,822 CRSF in our ACC9 and CH3 data centers, with a weighted average lease term of 8.5 years.
       •  Commenced development of ACC10 Phase I in Ashburn, Virginia, comprising 15.00 MW and 90,000 CRSF, with expected delivery in the second quarter of 2018.
       •  Commenced development of CH3 Phase II, comprising 12.80 MW and 89,000 CRSF, with expected delivery in the second quarter of 2018.

Chris Eldredge, President and CEO commented, “DFT is extremely honored that our top customers continue to value and expand their relationship with us, evidenced by the record-setting volume of leases signed year to date.  Given the level of inventory absorbed by our customers and continued demand for high-quality data center space, we are expanding development offerings in our Ashburn, Virginia and metro Chicago markets.”

First Quarter 2017 Results

For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, earnings were $0.45 per share compared to $0.36 per share in the first quarter of 2016.  Earnings increased $0.09 per share, or 25%, year over year, which was primarily due to new leases that commenced in 2016 and the first quarter of 2017 and lower preferred stock dividends, partially offset by the impact of the issuance of common stock that occurred late in the first quarter of 2016.  For the quarter-ended March 31, 2017, revenues were $139.5 million, an increase of 12%, or $15.3 million, over the first quarter of 2016.  The increase in revenues was primarily due to new leases commencing.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, NAREIT FFO was $0.76 per share compared to $0.67 per share for the prior year quarter.  NAREIT FFO for the first quarter of 2017 included $0.01 per share of severance and equity acceleration related to the departure of our Chief Revenue Officer.  The increase of $0.09 per share of NAREIT FFO is due to the items discussed below, partially offset by the severance and equity acceleration.

Normalized FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $0.77 per share compared to $0.67 per share for the first quarter of 2016.  Normalized FFO increased $0.10 per share, or 15%, from the prior year quarter primarily due to the following:

  • Increased operating income, excluding depreciation of $0.11 per share, primarily due to new leases commencing and
  • Lower preferred stock dividends of $0.04 per share due to fewer preferred shares outstanding and a lower dividend rate, partially offset by
  • $0.05 per share from the issuance of common equity in the first quarter of 2016.

Portfolio Update

During the first quarter 2017, we:

  • Executed two leases totaling 5.62 MW and 34,636 CRSF:
       •  One lease was at ACC7 Phase IV for 4.20 MW and 25,686 CRSF.  This lease was disclosed in our February 23, 2017 earnings release and resulted in ACC7 being 100% leased and commenced on a critical load basis.
       •  One lease was at CH2 Phase II for 1.42 MW and 8,950 CRSF.  This lease commenced in the first quarter and resulted in CH2 being 100% leased and commenced.
  • Executed one lease amendment for the remaining 4,307 CRSF in ACC7 which commenced in the first quarter.

During the second quarter 2017 to date, we:

  • Executed three pre-leases totaling 28.80 MW and 161,822 CRSF:
       •  One pre-lease was for the entire CH3 Phase I, comprising 14.40 MW and 71,506 CRSF.  This lease is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2018 when CH3 Phase I is placed into service.  CH3 Phase I is now 100% pre-leased both on critical load and CRSF.  Based on this lease and our current estimate of CH3 developments costs, we forecast that the unlevered GAAP return on investment for CH3 will be between 11% and 12%.
       •  One pre-lease was for 7.20 MW and 45,158 CRSF in ACC9 Phase I.  This lease will commence on May 1, 2017 as ACC9 Phase I is now in service.  ACC9 Phase I is 70% leased on critical load and CRSF.
       •  One pre-lease was for 7.20 MW and 45,158 CRSF in ACC9 Phase II.  This lease is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2017 when ACC9 Phase II is placed into service.  ACC9 Phase II is now 50% pre-leased on both critical load and CRSF.  Based on the pre-leases signed to date at ACC9 and our current estimate of ACC9 developments costs, we forecast that the unlevered GAAP return on investment of ACC9 will be between 11% and 12%.

Year to date, we:

  • Executed six new leases, lease amendments and pre-leases, with a weighted average lease term of 8.1 years, totaling 34.42 MW and 200,765 CRSF, which are expected to generate approximately $36.7 million of annualized GAAP base rent revenue, which is equivalent to a GAAP rate of $89 per kW per month.   These leases are expected to generate approximately $46.4 million of GAAP annualized revenue, which includes estimated amounts of operating expense recoveries, net of recovery of metered power, which results in a GAAP rate of $112 per kW per month.
  • Commenced three leases totaling 5.62 MW and 38,943 CRSF.

Development Update

We have commenced development of ACC10 Phase I in Ashburn, Virginia comprising 15.00 MW and 90,000 CRSF with expected delivery in the second quarter of 2018.  We have also commenced development of CH3 Phase II comprising 12.80 MW and 89,000 CRSF with expected delivery in the second quarter of 2018.

Below is a summary of our projects currently under development:

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of April 27, 2017, we had $264.1 million in borrowings under our revolving credit facility, leaving $485.9 million available for additional borrowings.

In February 2017, we announced the establishment of an "at-the-market" equity issuance program, or ATM program, through which we may issue and sell up to an aggregate of $200 million of shares of our common stock.  As of March 31, 2017, no shares of common stock have been issued under this program.

The Board approved a common stock repurchase program of $100 million for 2017.  As of March 31, 2017, no shares of common stock have been repurchased under this program.

Dividend

Our first quarter 2017 dividend of $0.50 per share was paid on April 17, 2017 to shareholders of record as of April 3, 2017.  The anticipated 2017 annualized dividend of $2.00 per share represents an estimated AFFO payout ratio of 63% and a yield of approximately 4.0% based on our current stock price.

Second Quarter and Full Year 2017 Guidance

GAAP earnings per share guidance for 2017 is now $1.75 to $1.87 per share compared to prior guidance of $1.75 to $1.95 per share.

Revised Normalized Funds From Operations (“FFO”) guidance is $3.01 to $3.13 per share compared to our prior guidance of $3.00 to $3.20 per share.  The low end of the range assumes no revenue from speculative leases that commence in 2017 and the high end assumes $0.10 per share of revenue from speculative leases.

The revised midpoint of the company’s 2017 Normalized FFO guidance range is $3.07 per share which is $0.03 per share lower than prior guidance.  This is due to the following:

  • $0.10 per share from an assumed equity offering to fund CH3 Phase II and ACC10 Phase I, partially offset by
  • Increased operating income, excluding depreciation, from the leases and pre-leases executed since the February 23, 2017 earnings release of $0.04 per share and
  • Decreased interest expense of $0.03 per share from lower debt outstanding due to the assumed equity offering and higher capitalized interest related to the CH3 Phase II and ACC10 Phase I developments.

The high end of the 2017 Normalized FFO guidance range is $0.07 per share lower than prior guidance.  This is due to the following items which were not assumed as a part of the initial 2017 guidance:

  • $0.10 per share from an assumed equity offering to fund CH3 Phase II and ACC10 Phase I, partially offset by
  • Decreased interest expense of $0.03 per share from lower debt outstanding and higher capitalized interest related to the CH3 Phase II and ACC10 Phase I developments.

The Normalized FFO guidance range for the second quarter of 2017 is $0.76 to $0.78 per share.  The midpoint of $0.77 per share is equal to first quarter's Normalized FFO per share.

The assumptions underlying our guidance can be found on the last page of this earnings release.

(1)Funds from operations, or FFO, is used by industry analysts and investors as a supplemental operating performance measure for REITs. We calculate FFO in accordance with the definition that was adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, represents net income determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items as defined under GAAP, impairment charges on depreciable real estate assets and gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, plus specified non-cash items, such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. We also present FFO attributable to common shares and OP units, which is FFO excluding preferred stock dividends. FFO attributable to common shares and OP units per share is calculated on a basis consistent with net income attributable to common shares and OP units and reflects adjustments to net income for preferred stock dividends.   We use FFO as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate-related depreciation and amortization and gains and losses from property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared period over period, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating expenses. We also believe that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of equity REITs, FFO may be used by investors as a basis to compare our operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because FFO excludes real estate related depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of our properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact our results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our performance is limited.   While FFO is a relevant and widely used measure of operating performance of equity REITs, other equity REITs may use different methodologies for calculating FFO and, accordingly, FFO as disclosed by such other REITs may not be comparable to our FFO. Therefore, we believe that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of our historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income as presented in the consolidated statements of operations. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or to cash flow from operating activities (each as computed in accordance with GAAP) or as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to meet our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions.   We present FFO with adjustments to arrive at Normalized FFO. Normalized FFO is FFO attributable to common shares and units excluding severance expense and equity accelerations, gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on derivative instruments and write-offs of original issuance costs for redeemed preferred shares.  We also present FFO with supplemental adjustments to arrive at Adjusted FFO (“AFFO”). AFFO is Normalized FFO excluding straight-line revenue, compensation paid with Company common shares, below market lease amortization and write-offs net of above market lease amortization and write-offs, non-real estate depreciation and amortization, amortization of deferred financing costs, improvements to real estate and capitalized leasing commissions. AFFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and therefore should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow provided by operations as a measure of liquidity and is not necessarily indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs including our ability to pay dividends. In addition, AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements employed by other companies. We use AFFO in management reports to provide a measure of REIT operating performance that can be compared to other companies using AFFO.

(1)Net Operating Income ("NOI") represents total revenues less property operating costs, real estate taxes and insurance, and other expenses (each as reflected in the consolidated statements of operations) for the properties included in the analysis. Cash Net Operating Income ("Cash NOI") is NOI less straight-line revenues, net of reserve and amortization of lease contracts above and below market value for the properties included in the analysis.   We use NOI and Cash NOI as supplemental performance measures because, in excluding depreciation and amortization, impairment charges on depreciable real estate assets and gains and losses from property dispositions, each provides a performance measure that, when compared period over period, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating expenses. However, because NOI and Cash NOI exclude depreciation and amortization, impairment charges on depreciable real estate assets and gains and losses from property dispositions, and capture neither the changes in the value of our properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact our results from operations, the utility of NOI and Cash NOI as a measure of our performance is limited.   Other REITs may not calculate NOI and Cash NOI in the same manner we do and, accordingly, our NOI and Cash NOI may not be comparable to the NOI and Cash NOI of other REITs. NOI and Cash NOI should not be considered as an alternative to operating income (as computed in accordance with GAAP).

GasLog Partners LP Reports Financial Results for the Three-Month Period Ended March 31, 2017 and Increases Cash Distribution

27 April 2017 - 5:50am

Monaco, April 27, 2017, GasLog Partners LP ("GasLog Partners" or the "Partnership") (NYSE: GLOP), an international owner and operator of liquefied natural gas ("LNG") carriers, today reported its financial results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2017.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Successfully completed an equity offering and issuance of general partner units, raising total net proceeds of $79.6 million.
  • Announced the pending acquisition of the GasLog Greece from GasLog Ltd. ("GasLog") for $219.0 million, including $1.0 million for positive net working capital, with attached long-term charter to a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc ("Shell").
  • Increased cash distribution of $0.50 per common unit for the first quarter of 2017, 2% higher than the fourth quarter of 2016 and 5% higher than the first quarter of 2016.
  • Quarterly Revenues, Profit, Adjusted Profit(1) and EBITDA(1) of $57.0 million, $21.0 million, $20.4 million and $42.0 million, respectively.
  • Highest-ever quarterly Partnership Performance(2) Results for Revenues and EBITDA(1).
  • Distribution coverage ratio(3) of 1.17x.

(1)        Adjusted Profit and EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures, and should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for GasLog Partners' financial results presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). For definition and reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS, please refer to Exhibit III at the end of this press release.
(2)        Partnership Performance represents the results attributable to GasLog Partners which are non-GAAP financial measures. For definition and reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS, please refer to Exhibit II at the end of this press release.
(3)        Distribution coverage ratio represents the ratio of Distributable cash flow to the cash distribution declared. For definition and reconciliation of Distributable cash flow to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS, please refer to Exhibit III at the end of this press release.

CEO Statement

Mr. Andrew Orekar, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "I am delighted with what GasLog Partners has achieved thus far in 2017. We announced the pending acquisition of the GasLog Greece, which is expected to expand the Partnership's fleet to ten wholly owned LNG carriers and to extend our average remaining charter duration. The first full quarter contribution of the GasLog Seattle, which the Partnership acquired on November 1, 2016, enabled GasLog Partners to deliver our highest-ever quarterly Partnership Performance Results for Revenues and EBITDA. We also completed equity and debt financings in January and April 2017, respectively, with the net proceeds to be used to fund the dropdown of the GasLog Greece and to repay the majority of the junior tranche of the credit agreement entered into on February 18, 2016 (the "Five Vessel Refinancing"), originally due in April 2018.

As a result of these actions, we are increasing our quarterly cash distribution to $0.50 per unit, which represents a 33% increase since our initial public offering ("IPO"), or an 11% compound annual growth rate. Our announced acquisition of the GasLog Greece is supportive of the Partnership's guidance to grow unitholder distributions at a 10% to 15% compound annual rate since IPO. We affirm this growth guidance, which, if approved, would result in an annualized distribution of $2.09 per unit or higher by the fourth quarter of 2017.

Following the expected closing of the GasLog Greece acquisition in the second quarter of 2017, the Partnership will have a dropdown pipeline of twelve vessels which, assuming the execution of further dropdowns, can support future growth of the Partnership's fleet and distributable cash flows."

Completion of Equity Offering

On January 27, 2017, GasLog Partners completed an equity offering of 3,750,000 common units at a public offering price of $20.50 per unit. In addition, the option to purchase additional shares was partially exercised by the underwriter on February 24, 2017, resulting in 120,000 additional units being sold at the same price. The aggregate net proceeds from this offering, including the partial exercise by the underwriters of the option to purchase additional shares, after deducting underwriting discounts and other offering expenses, were $78.0 million. In connection with the offering, the Partnership also issued 78,980 general partner units to its general partner in order for GasLog to retain its 2.0% general partner interest. The net proceeds from the issuance of the general partner units were $1.6 million.

Pending acquisition of the GasLog Greece

On March 23, 2017, GasLog Partners signed an agreement to acquire 100% of the shares in the entity that owns and charters to Shell the GasLog Greece from GasLog. The GasLog Greece is a 174,000 cubic meter ("cbm") tri-fuel diesel electric ("TFDE") LNG carrier built in 2016 and operated by GasLog since delivery. The vessel is currently on a multi-year time charter with a subsidiary of Shell through March 2026 and Shell has an option to extend the charter for a period of five years.

The aggregate purchase price for the acquisition will be $219.0 million, which includes $1.0 million for positive net working capital balances transferred with the vessel. GasLog Partners expects to finance the acquisition with cash on hand, including proceeds from its recent equity offering, and the assumption of the GasLog Greece's outstanding indebtedness of $151.4 million.

(1)        "IFRS Common Control Reported Results" represent the results of GasLog Partners in accordance with IFRS. Such results include amounts related to vessels currently owned by the Partnership for the periods prior to their respective transfer to GasLog Partners from GasLog, as the transfer of such vessels was accounted for as a reorganization of entities under common control for IFRS accounting purposes. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Partnership accompanying this press release are prepared under IFRS on this basis.

(2)        Adjusted Profit and EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. For definition and reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with IFRS, please refer to Exhibit III at the end of this press release.

The decrease in profit in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016 is mainly attributable to a decrease of $3.5 million in unrealized gain on the interest rate swaps signed in November 2016, combined with a decrease in revenues due to fewer calendar days in the first quarter of 2017. 

The increase in profit in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the same period in 2016 is mainly attributable to the increase in the profit from operations, mainly attributable to the scheduled dry-dockings and planned repairs performed in the first quarter of 2016, as well as an unrealized gain on interest rate swaps in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to an unrealized loss for the same period in 2016.

(1)        "Partnership Performance Results" represent the results attributable to GasLog Partners. Such results are non-GAAP measures and exclude amounts related to vessels currently owned by the Partnership for the periods prior to their respective transfer to GasLog Partners from GasLog, as the Partnership is not entitled to the cash or results generated in the periods prior to such transfers. Such results are included in the GasLog Partners' results in accordance with IFRS because the transfer of the vessel owning entities by GasLog to the Partnership represents a reorganization of entities under common control and the Partnership reflects such transfers retroactively under IFRS. GasLog Partners believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors regarding the financial and operating performance of the Partnership necessary to understand the underlying basis for the calculations of the quarterly distribution and earnings per unit, which similarly exclude the results of vessels prior to their transfer to the Partnership. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed in isolation or as substitutes to the equivalent GAAP measures presented in accordance with IFRS, but should be used in conjunction with the most directly comparable IFRS Common Control Reported Results. For definitions and reconciliations of these measurements to the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with IFRS, please refer to Exhibit II at the end of this press release.

(2)        Adjusted Profit, EBITDA and Distributable cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures, and should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for GasLog Partners' financial results presented in accordance with IFRS. For definition and reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS, please refer to Exhibit III at the end of this press release.

The decrease in profit in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2016 is mainly attributable to a decrease of $3.5 million in unrealized gain on the interest rate swaps signed in November 2016.

The increases in the Partnership Performance Results for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the same period in 2016 are mainly attributable to the profit from operations of the GasLog Seattle, acquired by the Partnership on November 1, 2016, and also to the increase in profit from operations of the existing fleet, mainly due to the scheduled dry-dockings and planned repairs performed in the first quarter of 2016, which were partially offset by the interest expense with respect to the outstanding debt of the GasLog Seattle.

The Partnership Performance Results reported in the first quarter of 2017 are the same as the IFRS Common Control Reported Results for the period since there were no vessel acquisitions from GasLog during the quarter, which would have resulted in retrospective adjustment of the historical financial statements.

Cash Distribution

On April 26, 2017, the board of directors of GasLog Partners approved and declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.50 per common unit for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The cash distribution is payable on May 12, 2017, to all unitholders of record as of May 8, 2017.

End of Subordination Period

The subordination period on the existing 9,822,358 subordinated units held by GasLog will extend until the second business day following the aforementioned cash distribution. Upon expiration of the subordination period, each outstanding subordinated unit (100% held by GasLog) will automatically convert into one common unit and will then participate pro rata with the other common units in distributions of available cash.

Liquidity and Financing

As of March 31, 2017, we had $129.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, of which $42.9 million is held in current accounts and $86.5 million was held in time deposits.

As of March 31, 2017, we had an aggregate of $800.8 million of indebtedness outstanding under our credit facilities, of which $104.3 million is repayable within one year. In addition, we had unused availability under our revolving credit facilities of $42.9 million.

As of March 31, 2017, $60.1 million under the junior tranche of the Five Vessel Refinancing was reclassified under "Borrowings - current portion" following a notice of prepayment issued by the respective subsidiaries on March 24, 2017 and was prepaid on April 5, 2017, as described below.

On April 3, 2017, the Partnership signed a deed of termination with respect to its revolving credit facility with GasLog. On the same date, the Partnership entered into a new unsecured five year term loan of $45.0 million and a five year revolving credit facility of $30.0 million with GasLog. Subsequently, on April 5, 2017, an amount of $45.0 million under the term loan facility and an amount of $15.0 million under the revolving credit facility were drawn by the Partnership and were used on the same date to prepay $60.1 million of the outstanding debt of GAS-nineteen Ltd., GAS-twenty Ltd. and GAS-twenty one Ltd., which would have been originally due in April 2018.

The Partnership has entered into three interest rate swap agreements with GasLog at a notional value of $390.0 million in aggregate, maturing between 2020 and 2022. As of March 31, 2017, the Partnership has hedged 48.1% of its floating interest rate exposure on its outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 1.6% (excluding margin).

As of March 31, 2017, our current assets totaled $139.9 million and current liabilities totaled $133.4 million, resulting in a positive working capital position of $6.5 million.

LNG Market Update and Outlook

During the quarter, there has been continued momentum in the start-up of new LNG liquefaction capacity with the third trains at both Gorgon and Sabine Pass commencing production. In addition, the world's first floating liquefaction terminal, the Petronas-owned PFLNG Satu, loaded its first cargo in Malaysia. Later this year, Ichthys, Wheatstone, Cove Point and Sabine Pass Train 4 are all expected to start production. Wood Mackenzie estimates that there will be projects with approximately 34 million tons per annum ("mtpa") of nameplate capacity coming online in 2017.

Some offtakers of these projects are yet to secure all of their shipping requirements. In addition to newbuild LNG carriers, we expect a number of vessels for these projects to be sourced from vessels currently operating in the short-term market, which should be positive for the overall shipping supply and demand balance. In the 2017-2020 period, Wood Mackenzie expects approximately 120 mtpa of new nameplate capacity to come online around the world. We believe that this new supply will create significant demand for LNG carriers over and above those available in the market and on order today.

Looking longer term, there have been a number of encouraging developments recently: ExxonMobil purchased a 25% interest in Area 4 in Mozambique; ENI's Coral FLNG has reached the final stages of a multi stage final investment decision ("FID") process; Total made a $207.0 million investment in Tellurian to develop the Driftwood LNG project; and Qatar Petroleum announced the lifting of the moratorium on incremental production from its North Field.

2016 saw significant increases in LNG demand from a number of new markets such as Pakistan, Poland, Lithuania and Jordan as well as major energy growth markets such as China and India. This trend has continued into the first quarter of 2017 with further strong increases in demand from China (+23% year-on-year to end March 2017) as well as in large conventional markets such as Japan (+13% year-on-year) and South Korea (+18% year-on-year) following the cold winter and slow progress with nuclear re-starts.

A number of markets that do not currently import gas are exploring LNG as an alternative to oil and coal or to replace declining domestic supply. Many countries with growing power demand, such as Ivory Coast, South Africa, Bangladesh and Myanmar, are looking at floating storage and re-gasification units ("FSRU") as a quick-to-market, cost-effective solution to import LNG. Other countries with FSRUs already in place are looking at expanding their use of FSRUs due to the successful commissioning and effective operations of the existing units. FSRUs continue to dominate new import markets as a quicker to build, more flexible and low cost alternative to an onshore facility. Many of the current and future LNG sellers are focusing their attention on FSRUs as a key enabler in creating new markets for their LNG.

In the shipping market, short-term charter rates declined in February and March largely due to seasonally lower LNG demand following the Northern Hemisphere winter. A high number of "re-lets" during the quarter also weighed on the market. We expect this trend to reverse as we enter the summer cooling season in the Middle East, Europe and Asia and the Southern Hemisphere winter.

While the recovery in charter rates and utilization in the LNG shipping market is taking longer than we had anticipated, we are seeing some initial signs of increased short-term and long-term activity, and we continue to believe that the longer term fundamentals point to a strengthening market in 2017 and beyond.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

Reconciliation of Partnership Performance Results to IFRS Common Control Reported Results in our Financial Statements:

Our Partnership Performance Results for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2016 presented below are non-GAAP measures and exclude amounts related to GAS-seven Ltd. (the owner of the GasLog Seattle), for the period prior to its transfer to the Partnership on November 1, 2016. While such amounts are reflected in the Partnership's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements because the transfer to the Partnership was accounted for as a reorganization of entities under common control under IFRS, GAS-seven Ltd. was not owned by the Partnership prior to its transfer to the Partnership on November 1, 2016, and accordingly the Partnership was not entitled to the cash or results generated in the period prior to such transfer.

 Our IFRS Common Control Reported Results presented below include the accounts of the Partnership and its subsidiaries. Transfers of vessel owning subsidiaries from GasLog are accounted for as a reorganization of entities under common control and the Partnership's consolidated financial statements are restated to reflect such subsidiaries from the date of their incorporation by GasLog as they were under the common control of GasLog.

GasLog Partners believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors regarding the financial and operating performance of the Partnership which is necessary to understand the underlying basis for the calculations of the quarterly distribution and the earnings per unit, which similarly exclude the results of acquired vessels prior to their transfer to the Partnership. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed in isolation or as substitutes for the equivalent GAAP measures presented in accordance with IFRS, but should be used in conjunction with the most directly comparable IFRS Common Control Reported Results.

        For the three months ended March 31, 2016    

(All amounts expressed in thousands of U.S. dollars)       Results attributable to GasLog   Partnership Performance Results   IFRS Common Control Reported Results   Revenues       6,769   49,358   56,127   Vessel operating costs       (1,354 ) (11,394 ) (12,748 ) Voyage expenses and commissions       (85 ) (714 ) (799 ) Depreciation       (1,428 ) (11,103 ) (12,531 ) General and administrative expenses       (149 ) (2,793 ) (2,942 ) Profit from operations       3,753   23,354   27,107   Financial costs       (1,029 ) (7,181 ) (8,210 ) Financial income       -   18   18   Loss on interest rate swaps       (2,902 ) -   (2,902 ) Total other expenses, net       (3,931 ) (7,163 ) (11,094 ) (Loss)/profit for the period       (178 ) 16,191   16,013

Amounts reflected in the Partnership's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2017 are fully attributable to the Partnership. The Partnership Performance Results reported in the first quarter of 2017 are the same as the IFRS Common Control Reported Results for the period since there were no vessel acquisitions from GasLog during the quarter, which would have resulted in retrospective adjustment of the historical financial statements.

        For the three months ended March 31, 2017

EXHIBIT III

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest income and expense, gain/loss on interest rate swaps, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted Profit represents earnings before (a) non-cash gain/loss on interest rate swaps that includes unrealized gain/loss on interest rate swaps held for trading and recycled loss of cash flow hedges reclassified to profit or loss and (b) write-off of unamortized loan fees. EBITDA and Adjusted Profit, which are non-GAAP financial measures, are used as supplemental financial measures by management and external users of financial statements, such as investors, to assess our financial and operating performance. The Partnership believes that these non-GAAP financial measures assist our management and investors by increasing the comparability of our performance from period to period. The Partnership believes that including EBITDA and Adjusted Profit assists our management and investors in (i) understanding and analyzing the results of our operating and business performance, (ii) selecting between investing in us and other investment alternatives and (iii) monitoring our ongoing financial and operational strength in assessing whether to continue to hold our common units. This increased comparability is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods of, in the case of EBITDA, interest, gain/loss on interest rate swaps, taxes, depreciation and amortization; and in the case of Adjusted Profit, non-cash gain/loss on interest rate swaps and write-off of unamortized loan fees, which items are affected by various and possibly changing financing methods, financial market conditions, capital structure and historical cost basis and which items may significantly affect results of operations between periods.

EBITDA and Adjusted Profit have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered as alternatives to, or as substitutes for, or superior to, profit, profit from operations, earnings per unit or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with IFRS. Some of these limitations include the fact that they do not reflect (i) our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments, (ii) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs and (iii) the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt. 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 does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. It is not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in our statement of cash flows and other companies in our industry may calculate this measure differently to how we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

EBITDA and Adjusted Profit are presented on the basis of IFRS Common Control Reported Results and Partnership Performance Results. Partnership Performance Results are non-GAAP measures. The difference between IFRS Common Control Reported Results and Partnership Performance Results are results attributable to GasLog.

Distributable Cash Flow

Distributable cash flow with respect to any quarter means EBITDA, as defined above for the Partnership Performance Results, after considering financial costs for the period, excluding amortization of loan fees, estimated dry-docking and replacement capital reserves established by the Partnership. Estimated dry-docking and replacement capital reserves represent capital expenditures required to renew and maintain over the long-term the operating capacity of, or the revenue generated by, our capital assets. Distributable cash flow is a quantitative standard used by investors in publicly-traded partnerships to assess their ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Our calculation of Distributable cash flow may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. Distributable cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to profit or any other indicator of the Partnership's performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. The table below reconciles Distributable cash flow to Profit for the period attributable to the Partnership.

(1) Excludes amounts related to GAS-seven Ltd., the owner of the GasLog Seattle, for the period prior to its transfer to the Partnership on November 1, 2016. While such amounts are reflected in the Partnership's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements because the transfer to the Partnership was accounted for as a reorganization of entities under common control under IFRS, GAS-seven Ltd. was not owned by the Partnership prior to its transfer to the Partnership on November 1, 2016, and accordingly the Partnership was not entitled to the cash or results generated in the period prior to such transfer.

(2) Amounts reflected in the Partnership's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2017 are fully attributable to the Partnership.

(3) Refers to reserves (other than the dry-docking and replacement capital reserves) for the proper conduct of the business of the Partnership and its subsidiaries (including reserves for future capital expenditures and for anticipated future credit needs of the Partnership and its subsidiaries). For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the other reserves amount above has been reduced by $142 of foreign exchange losses. For this period, distributable cash flow as reported had been adjusted to exclude the potentially disparate impact of foreign exchange losses.  

(4) For the three months ended December 31, 2016 and March 31, 2017, the cash distribution declared and the other reserves have been affected by $1,922 and $2,035, respectively, paid in respect of the units issued in the Partnership's equity offering completed in the first quarter of 2017. After giving effect to the aforementioned equity offering, the Q4 2016 distribution coverage ratio decreased from 1.34 to 1.20 and the Q1 2017 distribution coverage ratio decreased from 1.30 to 1.17.

Energy XXI Gulf Coast Provides Preliminary Results of March 31, 2017 Independent Reserve Engineer Report

27 April 2017 - 5:45am

HOUSTON, April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy XXI Gulf Coast, Inc. (“EGC” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:EXXI) today provided preliminary results of its third-party independent reserve engineer report as of March 31, 2017 that is being prepared by Netherland Sewell and Associates, Inc. (NSAI).  The final report is expected to be delivered during the week of May 8, 2017.  In recent years, the Company had utilized third-party engineers to audit its internal calculations of reserves, but has not had a fully-engineered third-party report prepared since 2012.  The Company previously disclosed that under the terms of its First Lien Exit Credit Agreement, a third party engineer report would be required annually, with the first report due by May 31, 2017. The last internally-prepared report was done as of December 31, 2016. 

Total SEC proved reserves as of March 31, 2017 in the report being prepared by NSAI are expected to be in the range of 100 to 115 million barrels of oil equivalent.  This preliminary estimate of total SEC proved reserves as of March 31, 2017 compared with the reserves reported as of year-end 2016 reflects the impact of production during the first quarter of 2017, changes in commodity pricing since year-end 2016, and the Company’s expectations with respect to higher capital costs, increased lease operating expenses, repairs, maintenance and workover costs.  Proved reserves as of March 31, 2017 based on forward strip commodity pricing on that date is estimated to be in the range of 105 to 125 million barrels of oil equivalent.

The present value of the preliminary March 31, 2017 proved reserves discounted at 10% (“PV-10 Value”) is estimated to be in the range of zero PV-10 to $100 million of PV-10 utilizing SEC 12-month average pricing of $47.62 per barrel of oil and $2.73 per thousand cubic feet of natural gas, before differentials.  The same factors that affected the change in reserves compared with year-end 2016 also impacted their PV-10 value. Utilizing forward strip commodity prices as of March 31, 2017 of $51.55 per barrel of oil and $3.31 per thousand cubic feet, before differentials, the PV-10 value is estimated to be in the range of $250 to $450 million.

The Company intends to disclose the final NSAI reserve report in a public filing after it is received by the Company.

Douglas E. Brooks, Chief Executive Officer and President remarked, “The transition to a fully-engineered reserve report from a reserve volume audit is a very rigorous process.  Our staff and management have been deeply involved in that process and will continue to engage with our independent reserve engineers in active dialogue as is typical in such annual third-party reserve compilations.  We believe this transition was a necessary and key step as we move forward with our long-term strategic plan.  We remain excited about our future growth capacity that is possible from the combination of our portfolio of core Gulf of Mexico properties and our strong balance sheet.  Our management team believes there is significant upside value in the Company’s non-proved resource base, especially at higher commodity prices, that will not be reflected in that engineering report.”

Helmerich & Payne, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results

27 April 2017 - 5:00am
  • H&P’s U.S. Land Operations contracted rig count increased by 41 rigs from December 31, 2016 to March 31, 2017 and by 73 rigs from September 30, 2016 to March 31, 2017, and today stands at 177 rigs
  • H&P’s U.S. Land market share increased significantly by approximately 2% from 17% to 19% during the three months of the quarter
  • H&P’s spot pricing in the U.S. Land market continued to increase (approximately 9%) from the date of the first quarter results announcement (January 26, 2017) to April 27, 2017

TULSA, Okla., April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Helmerich & Payne, Inc. (NYSE:HP) reported a net loss of $49 million or $(0.45) per diluted share from operating revenues of $405 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  The net loss per diluted share includes $0.02 of after-tax income comprised of select items(1).  Net cash provided by operating activities was $76 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  

President and CEO John Lindsay commented, “We experienced continued activity and spot pricing improvement in the U.S. Land market during our second fiscal quarter and H&P once again led the industry in AC drive rig reactivations and horizontal market share capture.  The driving forces behind this success are our people, our continuing investment in technology and our integrated business model.  Our ability to grow is enabled by promoting and hiring the best people, and delivering industry leading performance.  FlexRig® technology supported by H&P’s integrated model has over 1900 rig years of experience and is the preferred AC drive rig offering in the marketplace.  H&P is uniquely positioned with a fleet of FlexRigs that provide a Family of Solutions™ for our customers, and the right rig for their project.  Our uniform fleet size and scale is unmatched in the U.S. land AC drive segment which provides H&P an opportunity for additional market share capture.  H&P’s experience and expertise within an integrated model of designing, building, learning and upgrading the FlexRig fleet allow us to meet market needs in highest demand and provide the best value for customers.  We can upgrade these higher specification FlexRigs in a very capital-efficient way and meet today’s demand without the need to invest in new rigs to meet customer requirements.  We have 122 super-spec capable rigs in the U.S. land market today and another 50 rigs that are active that can also be upgraded.  In addition, we have approximately 100 idle FlexRigs that are capable of being upgraded to drill the more challenging horizontal wells, representing about two-thirds of the number of idle high-spec AC drive rigs in the industry fleet.

“We see some signs indicating that the recovery in U.S. land continues to modestly build momentum, which should support continued improvements in both FlexRig activity and pricing.  However, we expect our international land and offshore market outlook to remain weak for the foreseeable future.  Our budget for capital expenditures has allowed us to remain ahead of demand.  We have been able to maintain an industry leading cadence for upgrades allowing us to increase our active fleet by 89 rigs since September, including close to 60 rigs upgraded to super-spec capability.  Our supply pipeline of capital spares and upgrade equipment should be sufficient for the level of demand we see going forward.  We believe that the Company is positioned to successfully manage the new market dynamics.  Our organizational effectiveness efforts implemented during the downturn are having a significant effect on our ability to respond to demand and add significant value for our customers.  This is clearly demonstrated by the success we have enjoyed growing our U.S. land market share from 15% to 19% since the peak in 2014. We remain confident about the future for H&P because our competitive advantages remain in our people, performance, technology, reliability and uniform FlexRig fleet.”

Operating Segment Results

U.S. Land Operations

Segment operating loss widened by $21 million sequentially.  The change was primarily attributable to approximately $18 million in abandonment charges, as increasing activity was offset by lower margins.  The abandonment charges are included with depreciation in the segment and are related to the decommissioning of used drilling equipment as a result of our ongoing rig upgrade program.

The number of quarterly revenue days increased sequentially by approximately 35%.  This H&P rate of increase was greater than the overall market’s rate of increase (estimated at 27%)(2), resulting in significant market share growth for the Company.

From the first to the second fiscal quarter of 2017, adjusted average rig revenue per day decreased by $1,690 to $22,201(3), as the proportion of rigs working in the spot market increased significantly quarter to quarter.  The adjusted average rig expense per day increased sequentially by $548 to $15,612(3); the increase in the average was mostly attributable to upfront rig start-up expenses related to reactivating a large number of rigs.  The corresponding adjusted average rig margin per day decreased sequentially by $2,238 to $6,589(3). 

Offshore Operations

Segment operating income decreased 13% sequentially.  The number of quarterly revenue days decreased sequentially by approximately 8%, and the average rig margin per day increased sequentially by $339 to $10,817.  Additionally, management contracts on platform rigs contributed approximately $4 million to the segment’s operating income.
             
International Land Operations

The segment had an operating loss this quarter as compared to operating income the previous quarter.  The $12 million sequential change was attributable to declines in average rig margin per day and rig revenue days, as well as the absence of early termination revenues in the most recent quarter.

Quarterly revenue days decreased sequentially by approximately 25%, and the adjusted average rig margin per day decreased sequentially by $5,192 to $3,691 during this year’s second fiscal quarter(3).  Quarterly revenue days and adjusted average rig margin per day declined primarily as a result of the previously announced early termination notice from a customer for five rigs under long-term contracts in the segment.

Operational Outlook for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2017

U.S. Land Operations:

  • Quarterly revenue days expected to increase by roughly 25% sequentially
  • Average rig revenue per day  expected to be roughly $21,000 (excluding any impact from early termination revenue)
  • Average rig expense per day expected to be roughly $14,300

Offshore Operations:

  • Quarterly revenue days expected to decrease by approximately 10% to 15% sequentially
  • Average rig margin per day expected to be approximately $12,500
  • Management contracts expected to generate approximately $4 million in operating income

International Land Operations:

  • Quarterly revenue days expected to decrease by approximately 10% sequentially
  • Average rig margin per day expected to remain under $4,000

Other Estimates for Fiscal 2017

  • FY17 depreciation is now expected to be approximately $580 million.  Included in this depreciation estimate are approximately $40 million of abandonment charges, about half of which has already been recognized in the first half of the fiscal year.

Other Highlights

  • The Company’s total active rig market share in U.S. Land Lower 48 grew to approximately 19% as of March 31, 2017.
  • Since January 26, 2017 (date of first quarter results announcements), 22 AC drive FlexRigs with 1,500 hp drawworks and 750,000 lbs. hookload ratings were upgraded to include a 7,500 psi mud circulating system and/or multiple-well pad capability, resulting in 122 rigs in our fleet today with rig specifications in highest demand(4).
  • On January 26, 2017, EnergyPoint Research announced, “Helmerich & Payne again rated first in total satisfaction among onshore contract drillers. The company also captured the top spot in performance and reliability, service and professionalism, horizontal and directional wells, high-pressure/high-temperature (HPHT) wells, safety and environmental (HSE), shale-oriented applications, Interior Texas & Mid-continent, and three additional categories.”
  • On March 1, 2017, Directors of the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.70 per share on the Company’s common stock payable June 1, 2017 (as filed on Form 8-K at the time of the declaration).

Select Items Included in Net Income (or Loss) per Diluted Share

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2017 included $0.02 in after-tax income comprised of the following:

  • $0.04 of after-tax income from long-term contract early termination compensation from customers
  • $0.09 of after-tax gains related to the sale of used drilling equipment
  • $0.11 of after-tax losses from abandonment charges related to the decommissioning of used drilling equipment
