News provided by Share this article Share this article HOUSTON, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Independence Contract Drilling, Inc. (the "Company" or "ICD") (NYSE: ICD ) today reported financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Second quarter 2021 Highlights Adjusted net loss, as defined below, of $14.6 million, or $2.18 per share. Adjusted EBITDA loss, as defined below, of $0.4 million, representing an 82% sequential improvement from the first quarter of 2021. Net debt, excluding finance leases and net of deferred financing costs, of $134.6 million. Marketed fleet utilization of 49%, representing a 14% sequential improvement from the first quarter of 2021. Fully burdened margin of $3,162 per day, representing a 13% sequential improvement from the first quarter of 2021. In the second quarter of 2021, the Company reported revenues of $19.8 million, a net loss of $14.9 million, or $2.22 per share, adjusted net loss (defined below) of $14.6 million, or $2.18 per share, and adjusted EBITDA loss (defined below) of $0.4 million. These results compare to revenues of $21.4 million, a net loss of $10.1 million, or $2.52 per share, adjusted net loss of $11.0 million, or $2.73 per share, and adjusted EBITDA of $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2020, and revenues of $15.5 million, a net loss of $16.0 million, or $2.58 per share, an adjusted net loss of $16.4 million, or $2.64 per share, and adjusted EBITDA loss of $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2021. Chief Executive Officer Anthony Gallegos commented, "Second quarter 2021 played out very much as we anticipated as our operations continued their forward momentum across all fronts. We continued to break drilling records for our customers, expanded our ESG efforts, and reactivated additional 300 series rigs. We exited the second quarter with 13 rigs operating, and our 14th and 15th rigs, both 300 series, reactivating shortly thereafter in July. Of these 15 rigs, six are 300 series. Reactivations were completed on time and on budget. On the dayrate front, our strategy of focusing on shorter term contracts until dayrates fully recover continued to pay dividends. Second quarter renewals and reactivations, along with another eight rigs scheduled to re-rate throughout the third quarter, are expected to drive sequential revenue per day increases through the remainder of the year. Strong cost control also continued during the quarter, with further expected improvements to come as our operating rig base increases. We also continued to make progress on the ESG front. All ICD rigs are dual-fuel enabled and utility-grid hi-line electric power capable, and 64% of our rigs during the second quarter utilized these carbon reducing features. Looking forward, we continue to expect increasing demand for all of our rigs across our operating basins, in particular our 300 series rigs and in the Haynesville where strong natural gas prices and outlooks coupled with fewer qualified drilling contractors is driving increasing demand for ICD rigs. Based upon current conversations with our customers, we expect there is further utilization upside for ICD during the remainder of the year with stronger demand at year end and in 2022 as our customers continue efforts to replace and increase production against a backdrop of improving fundamentals and depleting DUC inventories." Quarterly Operational Results In the second quarter of 2021, operating days increased sequentially by over 15% compared to the first quarter of 2021. The Company's marketed fleet operated at 49% utilization and recorded 1,077 revenue days, compared to 834 revenue days in the second quarter of 2020, and 929 revenue days in the first quarter of 2021. The Company currently expects operating days in the third quarter of 2021 to increase sequentially by approximately 18% compared to the second quarter of 2021. Operating revenues in the second quarter of 2021 totaled $19.8 million, compared to $21.4 million in the second quarter of 2020 and $15.5 million in the first quarter of 2021. Revenue per day in the second quarter of 2021 was $16,514, compared to $19,741 in the second quarter of 2020 and $15,465 in the first quarter of 2021. The sequential increase quarter over quarter in revenue per day was driven by higher dayrates on contract renewals and one rig coming off a standby rate. Operating costs in the second quarter of 2021 totaled $17.0 million, compared to $14.1 million in the second quarter of 2020 and $14.5 million in first quarter of 2021. Operating costs during the second quarter of 2021 included $0.2 million associated with the reactivation of two rigs compared to $1.1 million during the first quarter of 2021. There were no reactivation costs during the second quarter of 2020. Fully burdened operating costs were $13,352 per day in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $12,741 in the second quarter of 2020 and $12,663 in the first quarter of 2021. Sequential increases in operating costs per day were driven primarily by one rig reactivating off of standby status. Excluding the impact from reactivation costs, fully burdened rig operating margins in the second quarter of 2021 were $3,162 per day, compared to $7,000 per day in the second quarter of 2020 and $2,802 per day in the first quarter of 2021. The Company currently expects operating margins in the third quarter of 2021 to increase sequentially by approximately 20% compared to the second quarter of 2021 driven primarily by favorable dayrate momentum and cost efficiencies associated with a larger operating rig base. Based upon recently signed contracts and contract renewals and continuing cost efficiencies, further sequential improvements in margin per day are expected to occur during the fourth quarter of 2021 as well. Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2021 were $4.1 million (including $0.9 million of non-cash compensation), compared to $3.5 million (including $0.3 million of non-cash compensation) in the second quarter of 2020 and $3.7 million (including $0.7 million of non-cash compensation) in the first quarter of 2021. The sequential increase in cash selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to increased onboarding and training costs. Drilling Operations Update The Company exited the second quarter with 13 operating rigs and with two additional rigs reactivating in July 2021. Overall, the Company's operating rig count averaged 11.8 rigs during the quarter. Based on current customer inquiries, the Company expects to reactivate several additional rigs during the remainder of the year. The Company's backlog of drilling contracts with original terms of six months or longer was $14.8 million as of June 30, 2021. This backlog excludes rigs operating on shorter term pad-to-pad drilling contracts. All of this backlog is expected to be realized during the remainder of 2021. Capital Expenditures and Liquidity Update Cash outlays for capital expenditures in the second quarter of 2021 were $2.6 million, offset by asset sales and recoveries of $0.1 million. As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash on hand of $6.0 million, an undrawn revolving line of credit with availability of $11.3 million based upon eligible accounts receivable, $132.8 million principal amount outstanding under its term loan, and $10 million outstanding under a loan issued under the Payroll Protection Program ("PPP") under the CARES Act. The term loan includes a committed $15 million accordion that remains undrawn. The Company applied for full forgiveness of the PPP loan during the second quarter of 2021. During the second quarter of 2021, the Company completed its at-the-market ("ATM") common stock offering with a maximum approved offering amount of $2.2 million. During the second quarter, the Company issued an aggregate of 445,557 shares of common stock pursuant to this program at a weighted average gross selling price of $3.48 per share, resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of $1.5 million. During the second quarter, the Company also sold 282,800 shares pursuant to the terms of its equity line of credit at a weighted average gross selling price of $3.80 per share, resulting in total gross proceeds to the Company of $1.1 million.

INDEPENDENCE CONTRACT DRILLING, INC. — The following table provides various financial and operational data for the Company's operations for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 and March 31, 2021 and the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. This information contains non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's operating performance. The Company believes this non-GAAP information is useful because it provides a means to evaluate the operating performance of the Company on an ongoing basis using criteria that are used by our management. Additionally, it highlights operating trends and aids analytical comparisons. However, this information has limitations and should not be used as an alternative to operating income (loss) or cash flow performance measures determined in accordance with GAAP, as this information excludes certain costs that may affect the Company's operating performance in future periods. OTHER FINANCIAL & OPERATING DATA (2) Rig operating days represent the number of days our rigs are earning revenue under a contract during the period, including days that standby revenues are earned. (3) Average number of operating rigs is calculated by dividing the total number of rig operating days in the period by the total number of calendar days in the period. (4) Rig utilization is calculated as rig operating days divided by the total number of days our marketed drilling rigs are available during the applicable period. (5) Average revenue per operating day represents total contract drilling revenues earned during the period divided by rig operating days in the period. Excluded in calculating average revenue per operating day are revenues associated with the reimbursement of (i) out-of-pocket costs paid by customers of $2.0 million, $2.7 million and $1.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, and March 31, 2021, respectively, and $3.2 million and $6.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and (ii) early termination revenues of $2.2 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. The three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and the three months ended March 31, 2021 did not include any early termination revenue. (6) Average cost per operating day represents operating costs incurred during the period divided by rig operating days in the period. The following costs are excluded in calculating average cost per operating day: (i) out-of-pocket costs paid by customers of $2.0 million, $2.7 million and $1.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, and March 31, 2021, respectively, and $3.2 million and $6.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively; (ii) overhead costs expensed due to reduced rig upgrade activity of $0.4 million, $0.4 million and $0.5 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, and March 31, 2021, respectively, and $0.8 million and $1.0 million during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively; (iii) rig reactivation costs, inclusive of new crew training costs, of $0.2 million, zero and $1.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, and March 31, 2021, respectively, and $1.3 million and zero during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively; and (iv) rig decommissioning costs associated with stacking deactivated rigs of $0.1 million, $0.3 million and zero during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 and March 31, 2021, respectively, and $0.1 million and $0.3 million during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Non-GAAP Financial Measures Adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. In addition, adjusted EBITDA is consistent with how EBITDA is calculated under our credit facility for purposes of determining our compliance with various financial covenants. We define "adjusted net (loss) income" as net (loss) income before: asset impairment, net; (gain) loss on disposition of assets, net; intangible revenue; severance and merger-related expenses; and other adjustments. We define "EBITDA" as earnings (or loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, and we define "adjusted EBITDA" as EBITDA before stock-based compensation, non-cash asset impairments, gains or losses on disposition of assets, and other non-recurring items added back to, or subtracted from, net income for purposes of calculating EBITDA under our credit facilities. Neither adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is a measure of net income as determined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Management believes adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are useful because they allow our stockholders to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compliance with various financial covenants under our credit facility and compare the results of our operations from period to period and against our peers without regard to our financing methods or capital structure or non-recurring, non-cash transactions. We exclude the items listed above from net income (loss) in calculating adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. None of adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA should be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss), the most closely comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of our operating performance or liquidity. Certain items excluded from adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company's financial performance, such as a company's return on assets, cost of capital and tax structure. Our presentation of adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Our computations of adjusted net (loss) income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Reconciliation of Net Loss to Adjusted Net Loss: (Unaudited) (1) During the second quarter of 2021, we impaired a damaged piece of drilling equipment for $0.3 million, net of insurance recoveries. We did not record any asset impairment during the second quarter of 2020. In the first quarter of 2021, we recorded an asset impairment of $43 thousand related to the pending sale of one of our field location facilities. In the first quarter of 2020, we recorded an asset impairment of $16.6 million on rigs removed from our marketed fleet, as well as certain other component equipment, inventory and assets held for sale. (2) In the second quarter of 2021 and 2020, and the first quarter of 2021, we recorded a loss, gain and gain, respectively, on the disposition of miscellaneous drilling equipment in the respective quarter. (3) Severance expense of $1.1 million was recorded in the first quarter of 2020 in connection with our cost reduction measures instituted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and deteriorating market conditions.
