Nov 1, 2021

November 01, 2021 17:04 ET Houston, Texas, UNITED STATES HOUSTON, Nov. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Archrock, Inc. (NYSE: AROC) (“Archrock”) today reported results for the third quarter of 2021. Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $195.2 million compared to $205.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. Net income for the third quarter of 2021 was $9.3 million compared to $18.3 million in the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure defined below) for the third quarter of 2021 was $92.4 million compared to $112.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. Previously declared quarterly dividend of $0.145 per common share for the third quarter of 2021 resulted in dividend coverage of 2.2x. Net cash provided by operating activities for the third quarter of 2021 was $82.1 million. Including $70.8 million in proceeds from the sale of non-core assets, free cash flow after dividend (a non-GAAP measure defined below) was $98.3 million. Leverage ratio was 4.3x compared to 4.0x as of September 30, 2020. Expect to achieve 2021 Adjusted EBITDA above the midpoint of our $340 million to $355 million guidance range. Archrock’s third quarter 2021 net income of $9.3 million included a pre-tax non-cash long-lived and other asset impairment of $5.1 million and pre-tax depreciation expense from the write-off of compression and other assets damaged in Hurricane Ida of $2.0 million. Archrock’s third quarter 2020 net income of $18.3 million included a pre-tax non-cash long-lived asset impairment of $10.7 million and pre-tax restructuring costs related to severance benefits and property disposals totaling $2.9 million. In addition, Archrock recorded a net benefit from tax audit settlements of $10.9 million during the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2021 of $92.4 million included $15.4 million in net gains related to the sale of compression and other assets. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2020 of $112.6 million included $9.1 million in net gains primarily related to the sale of the turbocharger business included within our aftermarket services segment. Management Commentary and Outlook “The positive trends we saw in the second quarter accelerated in the third, bolstering our confidence that the industry is in the front end of a recovery. During the third quarter, we grew our operating horsepower after adjusting for non-core asset sales, drove improved contract compression bookings for the second consecutive quarter and delivered aftermarket services revenue growth,” said Brad Childers, Archrock’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, our contract operations gross margin percentage remains within guidance expectations and above prior cycle lows, even in the face of sharp cost inflation. In response to higher costs, we began taking necessary action to implement price increases during the fourth quarter and expect these to be broad-based next year.” “The recent change in energy supply and demand fundamentals and resulting breakout in commodity prices highlight the need for higher industry activity levels and reinforce our expectation for natural gas demand growth as the global energy mix transitions to lower carbon fuels over time, all positive news for our compression business. Although our customers will finalize their budgets early next year, our initial discussions with customers indicate that bookings momentum, and therefore our participation in the upcycle, will continue building into 2022. “We’ve taken significant measures over the past several years to reposition our fleet for a more efficient and sustainable future. Our installed base of large, digitized and standardized compression horsepower is deployed in stable midstream applications in critical U.S. basins. We expect the steady and modest growth in demand for natural gas compression forecasted ahead will require higher growth capital in 2022 for lower-emitting and electric motor drive horsepower. As we selectively invest in high profit, large midstream compression units required to meet the needs of our customers, we will remain steadfast in our commitment to both maintaining a solid balance sheet and returning capital to shareholders,” concluded Childers. Contract Operations For the third quarter of 2021, contract operations segment revenue totaled $158.9 million compared to $175.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. Gross margin was $97.6 million, compared to $114.8 million in the third quarter of 2020. This reflected a gross margin percentage of 61%, compared to 66% in the prior year quarter. Total operating horsepower at the end of the third quarter of 2021 was 3.2 million, compared to 3.5 million at the end of the prior year quarter, and reflected the sale of 146,000 active horsepower as part of our ongoing fleet high-grading initiative. Utilization at the end of the third quarter of 2021 was 82%, compared to 83% at the end of the third quarter of 2020. Aftermarket Services For the third quarter of 2021, aftermarket services segment revenue totaled $36.3 million, up from $30.4 million in the third quarter of 2020, driven by higher parts sales and service activity. Gross margin of $5.6 million was up from $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2020. Gross margin percentage was 15% in the third quarter of both 2021 and 2020. Balance Sheet Long-term debt was $1.5 billion at September 30, 2021, reflecting net debt repayment of $96.5 million during the third quarter of 2021. Our leverage ratio was 4.3x, compared to 4.0x as of September 30, 2020. Our available liquidity totaled $517.5 million as of September 30, 2021. Quarterly Dividend Our Board of Directors recently declared a quarterly dividend of $0.145 per share of common stock, or $0.58 per share on an annualized basis, resulting in dividend coverage in the third quarter of 2021 of 2.2x. The dividend will be paid on November 16, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on November 9, 2021.

SOURCE: Archrock, Inc.   (1)   Management believes gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors because these non-GAAP measures, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provide a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses these non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures to review current period operating performance, comparability measures and performance measures for period-to-period comparisons. (2)   Defined as idle and operating horsepower. New compressor units completed by a third party manufacturer that have been delivered to us are included in the fleet. (3)   Defined as horsepower that is operating under contract and horsepower that is idle but under contract and generating revenue such as standby revenue. (4)   Defined as cash available for dividend divided by dividends declared for the period. (5)   Management believes free cash flow and free cash flow after dividend provide useful information to investors because these non-GAAP measures, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provide a more complete understanding of our performance and the amount of cash that is available for dividends, debt repayment and other general corporate purposes. 355,000 (1)   2021 annual guidance for net income includes $15.2 million of long-lived and other asset impairments and $2.0 million of restructuring charges as of September 30, 2021, but does not include the impact of any such future costs, because due to their nature, they cannot be accurately forecasted. Such costs do not impact Adjusted EBITDA or cash available for dividend, however they are reconciling items between these measures and net income. Long-lived and other asset impairment for our full years 2020 and 2019 was $79.6 million and $44.7 million, respectively.
