McCoy Global Inc. announces third quarter 2015 results

EDMONTON, Nov. 4, 2015 /CNW/ - McCoy Global Inc. ("McCoy" or "the Corporation") (TSX:MCB; OTCQB:MCCRF) today announced its operational and financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

"Continued low levels of drilling and completions activity influenced customer spending which negatively impacted McCoy Global's revenue and gross profit in the third quarter. Our actions on cost containment initiatives and working capital management contributed to the $4.2 million of operating cash flow generated during the third quarter of 2015," said Jim Rakievich, President and CEO of McCoy Global. "Although our long-term strategy remains unchanged, McCoy Global is focused on operational efficiencies and reducing its cost structure so we can accelerate revenue growth and profitability when the market recovers. McCoy Global's balance sheet remains strong with $26.9 million of cash and no debt, which will support the Corporation through this downturn while allowing some flexibility to execute on organic growth strategies and pursue acquisition opportunities."

Third Quarter Highlights

For the third quarter, McCoy Global reported:

  • Revenue of $21.4 million, compared to $38.3 million in Q3 2014
  • Loss from continuing operations of $2.0 million, compared to earnings of $4.2 million in Q3 2014. The $2.0 million loss includes a pre-tax impairment charge of $1.1 million ($0.8 million after-tax) related to research and development expenditures and pre-tax restructuring charges of $1.0 million ($0.7 million after-tax)
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of $0.9 million, compared to $8.0 million in Q3 2014
  • Backlog2 of $9.1 million at September 30, 2015, compared to $20.8 million at June 30, 2015
  • Book-to-bill ratio3 of 0.40 for the three months ended September 30, 2015 compared to 0.77 for the three months ended June 30, 2015
  • A $1.7 million decrease in general and administrative ("G&A") expense compared to Q3 2014, largely due to a 35% reduction in organizational headcount since January 1, 2015 and continued discipline over discretionary spending

For the third quarter, McCoy Global:

  • Continued to execute cost containment initiatives and manage working capital levels to minimize the impact of near-term economic conditions. The Corporation made further reductions in production facility variable costs, such that production facilities are now running at minimum operating levels
  • Amended the $50.0 million syndicated credit facility and extended the facility's maturity date to May 31, 2018
  • Suspended its quarterly dividend as part of the Corporation's ongoing efforts to preserve cash, and maintain its strong balance sheet

Quarterly Financial Highlights

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $21.4 million, a decrease of $16.9 million, or 44%, from the comparative quarter of 2014. The decrease in revenue was consistent with industry trends as decreased oil and gas activity continues to constrain customer capital equipment spending.

Gross profit percentage for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was 18%, an 18 percentage point decrease from Q3 2014. Although cost containment initiatives significantly decreased overall variable production facility expenses, gross profit was primarily impacted by underutilized production capacity as the total decline in production levels has outpaced the reduction in costs resulting in under absorption of production facility expenses. Current market conditions have also resulted in pricing pressure and fewer higher margin capital equipment orders.

G&A expense for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $5.0 million, a decrease of $1.7 million from the comparative period in 2014. Continued discipline over discretionary spending and the execution of cost reduction initiatives contributed to the overall decrease in overhead expenditures. This was offset to some extent by G&A costs added to support Eastern hemisphere regional locations and by the impact of foreign exchange as a significant portion of G&A expenses are denominated in United States dollars.

Loss from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $2.0 million ($0.07 per basic share), compared to earnings of $4.2 million ($0.15 per basic share) in the comparative quarter. The loss includes a pre-tax charge of $1.0 million for restructuring charges ($0.7 million after-tax) and a $1.1 million impairment charge ($0.8 million after-tax).

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $0.9 million, compared to $8.0 million during the same period in 2014. Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by a reduction in drilling and completions activity which has resulted in lower revenues. Although the Corporation has adjusted its cost structure to reflect near-term activity, the decline in activity has resulted in a reduction in gross profit which is the primary reason for the decrease in adjusted EBITDA.

At September 30, 2015, McCoy Global had working capital of $78.3 million, including $26.9 million in cash and cash equivalents. The Corporation has no borrowings under its $50 million senior credit facility.

1 EBITDA is an additional GAAP measure presented under IFRS defined as "net earnings (loss) from continuing operations, before finance charges (net), income tax expense, depreciation, and amortization." Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as "net earnings (loss) from continuing operations before finance charges (net), income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, impairment losses, restructuring charges, non-cash changes in value of derivative financial instruments and share-based compensation". The Corporation reports on EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because they are key measures used by management to evaluate performance. Adjusted EBITDA is used in making decisions relating to distributions to shareholders and is used in monitoring compliance with debt covenants. The Corporation believes adjusted EBITDA assists investors in assessing McCoy Global's performance on a consistent basis without regard to impairment losses, net changes in fair value related to derivative financial instruments, depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation expense, which are non-cash in nature and can vary significantly depending on accounting methods or non-operating factors. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered an alternative to net earnings in measuring McCoy Global's performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning and is therefore not necessarily comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. However, McCoy Global calculates adjusted EBITDA consistently from period to period. 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 statement of cash flows.


2 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 many are 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 work. Expected delivery dates for orders recorded in backlog usually span from one to six months, and thus may not translate into revenue in the consecutive quarter


3 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.
