“nm” – calculation not meaningful

Total Energy’s financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2019 reflect continued difficult industry conditions in Canada and reduced production activity in the Company’s Compression and Process Services segment offset by relatively stable industry conditions in the United States and Australia. Included in 2019 third quarter cost of services was $8.9 million of incremental depreciation expense resulting from a change in depreciation estimates in the Rentals and Transportation Services (“RTS”) segment effective July 1, 2019, of which $7.9 million is non-recurring.  Also included in third quarter cost of services was $0.5 million of equipment relocation expenses as the RTS segment continued to relocate underutilized equipment from Canada to the United States.  Excluding the $8.4 million of non-recurring expenses, net income for the third quarter of 2019 was $0.3 million.

Total Energy’s Contract Drilling Services (“CDS”) segment achieved 22% utilization during the third quarter of 2019, recording 2,163 operating days (spud to rig release) with a fleet of 107 drilling rigs, compared to 2,836 operating days, or 27% utilization, during the third quarter of 2018 with a fleet of 116 drilling rigs.  Revenue per operating day for the third quarter of 2019 was $22,124, a 9% increase from the prior year comparable period due to increased pricing in the United States and Australia.  During the third quarter of 2019, the CDS segment had 1,136 operating days in Canada with a fleet of 82 rigs (15% utilization), 671 days in the United States with a fleet of 20 rigs (34% utilization) and 356 days in Australia with a fleet of 5 rigs (76% utilization).

The RTS segment achieved a utilization rate on major rental equipment of 14% during the third quarter of 2019 compared to 24% utilization during the third quarter of 2018.  Segment revenue per utilized rental piece in the third quarter of 2019 was 10% higher than revenue per utilized piece in the third quarter of 2018 due primarily to improved pricing for assets relocated to the United States and the mix of equipment operating.  This segment exited the third quarter of 2019 with approximately 10,590 pieces of major rental equipment (excluding access matting) and 95 heavy trucks as compared to 11,000 rental pieces and 112 heavy trucks at September 30, 2018. The RTS segment continued to expand its presence in the United States with the acquisition of certain oilfield transportation assets in August 2019 on a going concern basis for $2.3 million (US$1.7 million).

Revenue in the Compression and Process Services segment (“CPS”) decreased 37% to $72.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared to $114.8 million for the same period in 2018.  This decrease was primarily due to lower fabrication sales activity.  This segment exited the third quarter of 2019 with a $39.8 million backlog of fabrication sales orders as compared to $236.7 million at September 30, 2018 and $77.2 million at June 30, 2019. At September 30, 2019, there was 47,000 horsepower in the compression rental fleet, of which approximately 34,000 horsepower was on rent as compared to 31,500 horsepower on rent at September 30, 2018.  The gas compression rental fleet operated at an average utilization rate of 70% during the third quarter of 2019 as compared to 69% during the third quarter of 2018.

Total Energy’s Well Servicing segment (“WS”) generated $35.8 million of revenue during the third quarter of 2019 on 42,210 service hours, or $848 per service hour, with a fleet of 83 service rigs that were located in Canada (57 rigs), the United States (14 rigs) and Australia (12 rigs).  This compares to $41.0 million of revenue during the third quarter of 2018 on 44,447 service hours, or $922 per service hour.  Service rig utilization for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was 35% in Canada, 35% in the United States and 73% in Australia.

During the third quarter of 2019 Total Energy repurchased 160,000 common shares at an average price (including commissions) of $6.47 per share pursuant to its normal course issuer bid and declared a quarterly dividend of $0.06 per share to shareholders of record on September 30, 2019.  This dividend was paid on October 31, 2019.  For Canadian income tax purposes, all dividends paid by Total Energy on its common shares are designated as “eligible dividends” unless otherwise indicated.

OUTLOOK

Challenging industry conditions and poor field conditions due to wet weather contributed to a continued and significant year over year decrease in Canadian oil and natural gas drilling and completion activity during the third quarter.  Despite limited visibility in Canada going into the upcoming winter drilling season, recent improvements in Canadian natural gas prices are encouraging.  While industry activity levels have moderated in the United States over the past few quarters, the Company continues to gain market share, particularly in the RTS segment through the relocation of underutilized equipment from Canada and targeted investment in new equipment.  Industry conditions remain stable in Australia.

Total Energy’s capital budget for 2019 remains at $40.5 million.  $40.3 million of capital expenditures have been made to September 30, 2019, including $4.8 million of carry forward from 2018, leaving approximately $5.0 million of capital expenditures projected for the remainder of 2019.  Net proceeds of $6.8 million have been realized from the sale of capital assets during the first nine months of 2019, resulting in a $1.9 million gain on sale being realized.

In October 2019, the CDS segment received $17.6 million (US $13.5 million) as compensation for the early termination in 2017 of contracts for three drilling rigs that were operating in the United States.  As no accrual had previously been made, this payment will be recognized as revenue in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Total Energy continues to generate significant free cash flow despite operating its asset base at historically low utilization levels.  The Company’s liquidity position remains strong, with $85.8 million of working capital at September 30, 2019 (after reclassifying $41.4 million of mortgage debt maturing in April 2020 as current).  Total Energy expects to renew its maturing mortgage debt in the second quarter of 2020 for a minimum five-year term.  At September 30, 2019, $225.1 million was drawn on Total Energy’s $295.0 million of revolving bank credit facilities that mature in June 2022 unless extended.  The Company remains in compliance with all debt covenants and is able to fully draw on the remaining amounts available under its credit facilities.  Total Energy’s primary credit facility provides the Company with the option to increase such facility by $75 million subject to certain terms and conditions including the agreement of the lenders to increase their commitments.

Despite near term challenges and uncertainties, particularly in Canada, Total Energy believes that medium to long-term fundamentals require continued exploration and development in the markets in which it competes in order to meet increasing global demand for oil and natural gas.

Notes to the Financial Highlights
(1) EBITDA means earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and is equal to net income (loss) before income taxes plus finance costs plus depreciation.  EBITDA is not a recognized measure under IFRS. Management believes that in addition to net income, EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company’s primary business activities prior to consideration of how those activities are financed, amortized or how the results are taxed in various jurisdictions as well as the cash generated by the Company’s primary business activities without consideration of the timing of the monetization of non-cash working capital items. Readers should be cautioned, however, that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of Total Energy’s performance. Total Energy’s method of calculating EBITDA may differ from other organizations and, accordingly, EBITDA may not be comparable to measures used by other organizations.
(2) Working capital equals current assets minus current liabilities.
(3) Net Debt equals long-term debt plus lease liabilities plus current liabilities minus current assets.
(4) Basic and diluted shares outstanding reflect the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the periods. See note 6 to the Company’s Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.
