Quarterly Financial Summary

Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $6.1 million, a decrease of $5.5 million, or 47%, from the fourth quarter of 2015. Despite a modest increase in North American land activity, oilfield equipment and services markets remained challenging and customers continued to delay capital equipment purchases until absolutely required or until 2017 capital budgets were approved.

Gross profit percentage for the three months ended December 31, 2016 decreased 6 percentage points to (10%) from the fourth quarter of 2015. Gross profit continued to be negatively impacted by the substantial decline in revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016. Despite a 47% decrease in revenue in comparison to the fourth quarter of 2015, gross profit remained relatively consistent at ($0.6) million, which is a direct result of restructuring and cost containment initiatives.

G&A expense for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $2.4 million, a $1.7 million decrease from the fourth quarter of 2015. The decrease is largely as a result of restructuring and cost containment initiatives which removed significant costs from the Corporation's overheads, including senior management and executive positions.

Net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $4.4 million ($0.16 loss per basic share), compared to net loss of $10.8 million ($0.39 loss per basic share) in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was ($1.6 million) compared to ($4.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by the continued global reduction in drilling and completions activity and the related decline in revenues.

As at December 31, 2016, the Corporation had a $22.2 million cash balance and no debt. Subsequent to December 31, 2016, the Corporation's $5.0 million operating line was cancelled and replaced with a non-revolving term loan and an operating line of credit. US $4.5 million was drawn against these new facilities in the first quarter of 2017 to partially fund the acquisition of 3PS.

Annual Financial Summary

Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016 was $27.0 million, a decrease of $54.8 million, or 67%, from 2015. Revenues were significantly impacted by the prolonged down-cycle, with industry fundamentals creating pricing pressure and depressed demand for capital equipment. The severity of the down-cycle led to many customers deferring equipment maintenance, cannibalizing idle equipment for any required parts and servicing equipment internally.

Gross profit percentage for the year ended December 31, 2016 was (21%), a decrease of 46 percentage points from the comparative period. Although the restructuring plan reduced the Corporation's cost structure to better align with current market conditions, the 67% decline in revenue was so substantial that re-adjusting the production cost structure to keep pace with the decline was difficult given the nature of the fixed cost structure in place.

Net loss for the year was $35.9 million ($1.30 loss per basic share), compared to net loss of $11.0 million ($0.40 loss per basic share) in 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the year ended December 31, 2016 was ($13.2 million) compared to $4.1 million in 2015. Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by the reduction in global drilling and completions activity which had a significant impact on revenues. The reduction in gross profit more than offset the reduction in expenses achieved from the successful execution of the restructuring plan.

EBITDA is calculated under IFRS and is reported as an additional subtotal in the Corporation's consolidated statements of cash flows.  EBITDA is defined as net (loss) earnings, before: finance charges, net; income tax expense (recovery); depreciation; and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as net (loss) earnings, before: finance charges, net; income tax expense (recovery); depreciation; amortization; impairment losses; restructuring charges; other (gains) losses, net; inventory excess and obsolete charges; and share-based compensation. The Corporation reports on EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because they are key measures used by management to evaluate performance. The Corporation believes adjusted EBITDA assists investors in assessing McCoy Global's current operating performance on a consistent basis without regard to non-cash or non-recurring items that can vary significantly depending on accounting methods or non-operating factors. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered an alternative to net (loss) earnings in measuring McCoy Global's performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning and is therefore not likely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. For comparative purposes, in previous financial disclosures 'adjusted EBITDA' was defined as "net (loss) earnings before finance charges, net, income tax expense (recovery), depreciation, amortization, impairment losses, restructuring charges, non-cash changes in fair value related to derivative financial instruments and share-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA should not be used as an exclusive measure of cash flow since it does not account for the impact of working capital changes, capital expenditures, debt changes and other sources and uses of cash, which are disclosed in the consolidated statements of cash flows.

McCoy Global defines backlog as orders that have a high certainty of being delivered and is measured on the basis of a firm customer commitment, such as the receipt of a purchase order. Customers may default on or cancel such commitments, but may be secured by a deposit and/or require reimbursement by the customer upon default or cancellation. Backlog reflects likely future revenues; however, cancellations or reductions may occur and there can be no assurance that backlog amounts will ultimately be realized as revenue, or that the Corporation will earn a profit on backlog once fulfilled. Expected delivery dates for orders recorded in backlog typically span from one to six months. Current market conditions customers have shifted customer purchasing habits towards a more just-in-time model and to standard capital equipment and aftermarket parts and consumables that are carried in finished goods inventory, which typically move through backlog quicker than more complex custom orders that require longer production lead times.

The book-to-bill ratio is a measure of the amount of net sales orders received to revenues recognized and billed in a set period of time. The ratio is an indicator of customer demand and sales order processing times. The book-to-bill ratio is not a GAAP measure and therefore the definition and calculation of the ratio will vary among other issuers reporting the book-to-bill ratio. McCoy Global calculates the book-to-bill ratio as net sales orders taken in the reporting period divided by the revenues reported for the same reporting period.
