Ensco plc Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

07/26/2017

Atwood Acquisition Announced
ENSCO DS-4 and ENSCO DS-10 Awarded Contracts Offshore Nigeria
Multi-Year Contracts Awarded for ENSCO 110 in the Middle East and ENSCO 120 in the North Sea
Strong Operational and Safety Performance

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ensco plc (NYSE: ESV) today reported a loss of $0.15 per share for second quarter 2017 compared to earnings of $2.04 per share a year ago. Results from discontinued operations were zero cents per share in both second quarter 2017 and second quarter 2016.

Several items influenced these comparisons:

  • $10 million or $0.02 per share loss related to the settlement of a previously disclosed legal contingency included in second quarter 2017 contract drilling expense
  • $6 million or $0.02 per share of other discrete tax expense in second quarter 2017 tax provision
  • $4 million or $0.01 per share of transaction costs related to the proposed acquisition of Atwood included in second quarter 2017 general and administrative expense
  • $261 million or $0.83 per share gain included in second quarter 2016 other income related to the repurchase of $940 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes
  • $205 million or $0.70 per share of early contract termination settlements included in second quarter 2016 revenue

Adjusted for the items noted above, the loss from continuing operations was $0.10 per share in second quarter 2017 compared to earnings of $0.51 per share a year ago.

Chief Executive Officer and President Carl Trowell said, “During the second quarter, we took additional steps to better position our rig fleet for the future. We announced our proposed acquisition of Atwood, which will significantly enhance our fleet through the addition of high-specification floaters and jackups at a compelling purchase price. Coupled with targeted synergies, we expect this transaction will create meaningful value for our shareholders. Integration planning is well underway and we expect to close the transaction during third quarter 2017.”

Mr. Trowell added, “We also improved our prospects for future utilization by winning new contracts for several rigs. By securing work for drillships ENSCO DS-4 and ENSCO DS-10 with key strategic clients for major projects offshore Nigeria, we bridge these ultra-deepwater assets to better market conditions. We continue to see increased activity in the shallow-water jackup segment as evidenced by three-year contracts for ENSCO 110 in the Middle East and ENSCO 120 in the North Sea, a 400-day contract for ENSCO 102 in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and several other short-term contract awards and extensions.”

Mr. Trowell concluded, “Our recent contracting success across a range of water depths and geographies highlight the benefits of our diverse rig fleet and global footprint. As customers look to contract offshore drilling rigs from a select group of established service providers, we will continue to leverage our proven operating and safety track record as well as a strong financial position to capitalize on new contracting opportunities.”

Second Quarter Results

Revenues were $458 million in second quarter 2017 compared to $910 million a year ago. Excluding $205 million of early contract termination settlements received during second quarter 2016, revenues declined 35% compared to the year-ago period. Fewer rig operating days due to a decline in reported utilization to 56% from 61% in second quarter 2016 as well as previously announced sales of rigs that operated a year ago also contributed to lower year-to-year revenues. The average day rate for the fleet declined to $156,000 in second quarter 2017 from $195,000 in second quarter 2016.

Contract drilling expense declined to $291 million in second quarter 2017 from $350 million a year ago as lower personnel and other activity-based costs due to fewer rig operating days more than offset costs related to the settlement of a previously disclosed legal contingency and contract preparation costs.

Depreciation expense declined to $108 million from $112 million a year ago due to an extension of useful lives for certain contracted assets. General and administrative expense increased to $31 million in second quarter 2017 from $27 million a year ago due to $4 million of transaction costs related to the proposed acquisition of Atwood announced during second quarter 2017.

Interest expense in second quarter 2017 was $60 million, net of $14 million of interest that was capitalized, compared to interest expense of $54 million in second quarter 2016, net of $13 million of interest that was capitalized. The year-on-year increase in interest expense is primarily due to senior convertible notes issued in fourth quarter 2016, partly offset by debt repurchases. Second quarter 2016 other income included a $261 million gain on the repurchase of $940 million of senior notes at an average discount of 27%.

Segment Highlights

Floaters
Floater revenues were $264 million in second quarter 2017 compared to $636 million a year ago. Revenues declined primarily due to $205 million of early contract termination settlements during second quarter 2016 as noted above. Fewer rig operating days due to a decline in reported utilization to 43% compared to 57% a year ago and the sale of ENSCO 6003 and ENSCO 6004, both of which operated during second quarter 2016, also contributed to lower year-to-year revenues. The average day rate for floaters declined to $339,000 from $360,000 a year ago. Adjusted for uncontracted rigs and planned downtime, operational utilization was 99%, equal to a year ago.

Floater contract drilling expense declined to $146 million in second quarter 2017 from $209 million a year ago as lower personnel and other activity-based costs due to fewer rig operating days more than offset costs related to the settlement of a previously disclosed legal contingency and ENSCO DS-4 contract preparation costs.

Jackups
Jackup revenues were $179 million in second quarter 2017 compared to $251 million a year ago due to fewer rig operating days and a decline in the average day rate to $89,000 from $112,000 in second quarter 2016. Reported utilization increased to 64% in second quarter 2017 from 63% a year ago due to the retirement of several jackups. Adjusted for uncontracted rigs and planned downtime, operational utilization was 98% compared to 99% a year ago.

Contract drilling expense increased to $132 million from $122 million a year ago, primarily due to higher maintenance costs associated with shipyard projects and contract preparation costs.

Other
Other is composed of managed drilling rigs. Revenues declined to $15 million from $22 million in second quarter 2016. Contract drilling expense declined to $13 million from $19 million a year ago. These declines were due to the completion of a managed jackup contract in Mexico during second quarter 2016.

(1)     Rig utilization is derived by dividing the number of days under contract by the number of days in the period. Days under contract equals the total number of days that rigs have earned and recognized day rate revenue, including days associated with early contract terminations, compensated downtime and mobilizations. When revenue is earned but is deferred and amortized over a future period, for example when a rig earns revenue while mobilizing to commence a new contract or while being upgraded in a shipyard, the related days are excluded from days under contract.
 
For newly-constructed or acquired rigs, the number of days in the period begins upon commencement of drilling operations for rigs with a contract or when the rig becomes available for drilling operations for rigs without a contract.
 
(2) Average day rates are derived by dividing contract drilling revenues, adjusted to exclude certain types of non-recurring reimbursable revenues, lump sum revenues and revenues attributable to amortization of drilling contract intangibles, by the aggregate number of contract days, adjusted to exclude contract days associated with certain mobilizations, demobilizations, shipyard contracts and standby contracts.
 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

To supplement Ensco’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, this press release provides investors with adjusted loss per share from continuing operations and net debt, which are non-GAAP measures. Ensco’s management believes that it provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the company's performance by excluding certain charges that may not be indicative of Ensco’s ongoing operating results. This allows investors and others to better compare financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies, and to better understand the long-term performance of our business. Net debt is defined as long-term debt less cash and short-term investments. We review net debt as part of our overall liquidity, financial flexibility, capital structure and leverage, and believe that this measure is useful to investors as part of their assessment of our business. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The table below reconciles (loss) earnings per share, as calculated in accordance with GAAP, to adjusted (loss) earnings per share for the quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. Adjusted loss per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 excludes the loss related to the settlement of a previously disclosed legal contingency, other discrete tax items and the transactions costs related to the proposed acquisition of Atwood. Adjusted earnings per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 excludes the gain on debt repurchases and early termination settlements.
