HOUSTON, March 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Well Services, Inc. (the "Company", "U.S. Well Services" or "we") (NASDAQ: USWS) today reported financial and operational results for the full-year and fourth quarter of 2021.  

Full-Year and Fourth Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Fully contracted existing electric fleets and executed customer contracts for three of four newbuild Nyx Clean Fleets®
  • Reduced Term A Loans and Term B Loans (collectively the "Senior Secured Term Loan") balance by $125.6 million to $120.7 million at December 31, 2021 from $246.3 million at December 31, 2020 and extended term for 0.0% applicable interest rate through March 31, 2022
  • Further reduced our Senior Secured Term Loan balance during the first quarter of 2022 to less than $103.0 million, securing an interest rate of (i) 1.0% per annum in cash and (ii) 4.125% paid-in-kind for the remainder of 2022
  • Averaged 6.4 fully-utilized fleets for full-year 2021 vs. 5.4 fully-utilized fleets for full-year 2020

  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) for full-year 2021 was $40.0 million, or $6.2 million of Adjusted EBITDA per fully-utilized fleet(2) vs. $31.1 million of Adjusted EBITDA and $5.8 million of Adjusted EBITDA per fully-utilized fleet for the full-year 2020

Adjusted EBITDA per fully-utilized fleet equivalent is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by the product of average active fleets during the quarter and the utilization rate for active fleets during the quarter.

 

"U.S. Well Services faced considerable challenges during the fourth quarter of 2021 despite improvements in the overall market prices for commodities and pressure pumping services," commented Joel Broussard, the Company's President and CEO. "As we previously disclosed, the Company's operations were adversely impacted by both the lack of truck drivers and an inability for our customers to obtain all the sand and water required for use in our operations.  The result of these impacts was downtime in the quarter equivalent to 16.4 days per fully-utilized fleet."

"In spite of these challenges, we believe the outlook for U.S. Well Services is favorable.  Both demand and pricing for frac fleets have rebounded sharply since mid-2021, and demand for electric frac fleets in particular is the strongest we have seen since we deployed the industry's first electric fleet in 2014.  We believe our existing fleets and the newbuild Nyx Clean Fleets® that we expect to deliver throughout 2022 will command attractive pricing and improve the Company's financial and strategic positioning."

Outlook

Throughout the fourth quarter of 2021, supply chain disruptions affected the availability of truck drivers, proppant and water required for efficient pressure pumping operations, which in turn limited our pumping activity.  Although these challenges have persisted into the first quarter of 2022, U.S. Well Services worked diligently to modify existing contracts with several key customers to mitigate the severity of the financial impact we may face from supply-chain driven non-productive time.

The recent spike in crude oil and natural gas prices created elevated demand for pressure pumping services, resulting in considerable tightening of the market for our services.  Availability of workable equipment, experienced crews, and materials used in pressure pumping operations remains limited, and service companies have demonstrated capital spending discipline on new fleets and are not replacing aging equipment.  As a result, pricing for pressure pumping services has increased significantly compared to prevailing market pricing over the last several quarters.  High-spec, next-generation fracturing fleets such as our all-electric Clean Fleets® continue to command the most attractive pricing.  In addition, we recently redeployed a conventional frac fleet to bridge the time gap between our customers' current service needs and the deployment of one of our newbuild Nyx Clean Fleets®.  Upon delivery, the newbuild Nyx Clean Fleet® will replace the conventional fleet and continue to work under a long-term contract.

We believe U.S. Well Services is well positioned to benefit from the rapidly improving pressure pumping market dynamics, and will continue to serve as the market leader in electric pressure pumping services as we deliver our four newbuild Nyx Clean Fleets®.  To date we have secured customer contracts for three of the four newbuilds and expect these fleets to begin delivering mid-Q2 2022 with the last newbuild delivery in Q4 2022.

Full-Year 2021 Financial Summary 

For the year ended December 31, 2021, total revenue increased 3% to $250.5 million, compared to $244.0 million in 2020.  This increase in revenue was driven primarily by our higher average fleet count and increased sales of materials, including sand and chemicals.

Costs of services, excluding depreciation and amortization, for the year ended December 31, 2021, increased 18% to $221.4 million from $187.8 million in 2020.  The increase in our cost of services is primarily attributable to increased labor costs as well as costs associated with procuring third party power generation services as the Company transitioned away from owning power generation assets.

Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") for the year ended December 31, 2021, decreased to $32.6 million from $43.6 million in 2020.  Excluding stock-based compensation and non-cash charges for doubtful collections of Accounts Receivable, SG&A totaled $23.0 million for the full-year 2021, compared to $23.5 million in 2020.

Net loss attributable to the Company was $70.6 million for the full-year 2021 as compared to $229.3 million for 2020.  Adjusted EBITDA for the full-year 2021 was $40.0 million, which equates to $6.2 million per fully-utilized fleet. 

Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Summary

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $38.9 million as compared to $56.5 million for the third quarter of 2021.  During the fourth quarter of 2021 our active fleet count decreased to 5.0 fleets from 5.7 active fleets in the third quarter.  Utilization of the Company's active fleets averaged 82% during the fourth quarter of 2021, resulting in a fully-utilized equivalent of 4.1 fleets.  This compares to 89% utilization and a fully-utilized equivalent of 5.0 fleets for the third quarter of 2021.

Costs of services, excluding depreciation and amortization, for the fourth quarter of 2021 decreased to $41.4 million from $58.1 million in the third quarter of 2021, driven primarily by the reduction in our active fleet count and lower repair and maintenance costs resulting from the reduction in pressure pumping activity.

Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") decreased to $6.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 from $11.1 million in the third quarter of 2021.  Excluding stock-based compensation of $1.8 million, SG&A was $5.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $6.5 million in the third quarter of 2021. This sequential decrease was primarily attributable to a reduction in personnel costs.

Net loss attributable to the Company increased to $22.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 from $9.6 million in the third quarter of 2021.  Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2021 declined to $(7.9) million, or $(7.8) million of Annualized Adjusted EBITDA per fully-utilized fleet, as compared to $(0.5) million of Adjusted EBITDA and $(0.4) million of Annualized Adjusted EBITDA per fully-utilized fleet in the third quarter of 2021. 

Operational Highlights

U.S. Well Services exited the year with four active electric frac fleets.  All four fleets were working in the Appalachian Basin.  Currently, the Company is operating six fleets, of which one is in the Permian Basin, one is in the Rockies, and four are in the Appalachian Basin.

Over the next several months, U.S. Well Services expects to begin taking delivery of its newbuild Nyx Clean Fleets®.  The first newbuild fleet is expected to deliver in mid-Q2 2022, with the remaining fleets delivering in late Q2 2022, mid-Q3 2022 and Q4 2022, respectively.

Balance Sheet and Capital Spending

As of December 31, 2021, total liquidity was $20.2 million, consisting of $9.1 million of cash and restricted cash on the Company's balance sheet and $11.1 million of availability under the Company's asset-backed revolving credit facility, and net debt was $283.2 million.    

During the year we reduced our Senior Secured Term Loan balance by $125.6 million to $120.7 million at December 31, 2021 from $246.3 million at December 31, 2020, which under the terms of our Senior Secured Term Loan Credit Agreement, extended the period of 0.0% interest rate through March 31, 2022.

Since year end, we further reduced our Senior Secured Term Loan balance to less than $103.0 million, securing an interest rate of (i) 1.0% per annum in cash and (ii) 4.125% per annum payable in-kind for the last three quarters of 2022.

During the first quarter of 2022, the Company raised approximately $68.4 million of gross proceeds from the issuance of approximately $46.9 million of common equity and borrowings of $21.5 million of last-out senior secured term loans (the "Term C Loan") under the Senior Secured Term Loan Credit Agreement, a portion of which will be used to help fund capital expenditures related to the Company's newbuild Nyx Clean Fleets®.

Maintenance capital expenditures, on an accrual basis were $2.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes, however, that certain non-GAAP performance measures allow external users of its consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, to more effectively evaluate its operating performance and compare the results of its operations from period to period and against the Company's peers without regard to the Company's financing methods or capital structure. Additionally, the Company believes the use of certain non-GAAP measures highlights trends in the Company's business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP measures.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss), operating income (loss) or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of the Company's profitability or liquidity. The Company's management believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful because they allow external users of its consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, to more effectively evaluate the Company's operating performance, compare the results of its operations from period to period and against the Company's peers without regard to the Company's financing methods or capital structure and because it highlights trends in the Company's business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP measures. The Company believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are important supplemental measures of its performance that are frequently used by others in evaluating companies in its industry. Because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income (loss) and may vary among companies, the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA that the Company presents may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA excluding the following: impairments; litigation settlement; (gain) loss on disposal of assets; change in fair value of warrant liabilities; (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt; share-based compensation; and other items that the Company believes to be non-recurring in nature.  The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Revenue.
