Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This quarterly report contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements refer to our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, strategies, future performance and business. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements may include words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “likely,” “may,” “project,” “potential,” “seek,” “should,” “will,” “would” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operational performance or other events. All forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those that we expect and, therefore, investors should not unduly rely on such statements. The risks that could cause these forward-looking statements to be inaccurate include but are not limited to:

·

a decline in domestic spending by the onshore oil and natural gas industry;

·

volatility in oil and natural gas prices;

·

the effect of a loss of, financial distress of, or decline in activity levels of, one or more significant customers;

·

actions of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, its members and other state-controlled oil companies relating to oil price and production controls;

·

our inability to employ a sufficient number of key employees, technical personnel and other skilled or qualified workers;

·

the price and availability of alternative fuels and energy sources;

·

the discovery rates of new oil and natural gas reserves;

·

the availability of water resources, suitable proppant and chemicals in sufficient quantities and pricing for use in hydraulic fracturing fluids;

·

uncertainty in capital and commodities markets and the ability of oil and natural gas producers to raise equity capital and debt financing;

·

ongoing and potential securities litigation and other litigation and legal proceedings, including arbitration proceedings; and

·

a deterioration in general economic conditions or a weakening of the broader energy industry.

See the “Risk Factors” included in Item 1A of our annual report on Form 10-K for a more complete discussion of the risks and uncertainties mentioned above and for  a discussion of other risks and uncertainties we face that could cause our forward-looking statements to be inaccurate. All forward-looking statements attributable to us are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements as well as others made in this quarterly report and hereafter in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and other public communications.

We caution that the risks and uncertainties identified by us may not be all of the factors that are important to investors. Furthermore, the forward-looking statements included in this quarterly report are made only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

FTS INTERNATIONAL, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

 

NOTE 1 — BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Unless the context requires otherwise, the use of the terms “FTSI,” “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our” or “ours” in these Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements refer to FTS International, Inc., together with its consolidated subsidiaries. The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, certain information and disclosures normally included in our annual consolidated financial statements have been condensed or omitted. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements included in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements included herein contain all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature considered necessary for a fair presentation of the interim periods. The results of operations of the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the full year. There were no items of other comprehensive income in the periods presented. The Company had $9.1 million of restricted cash at January 1, 2018 and zero restricted cash at September 30, 2019 and 2018.

Reclassifications

Current liabilities related to accrued supply commitment charges have been reclassified from accounts payable to other current liabilities on the balance sheet as of December 31, 2018, and the statement of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. These reclassifications had no effect on total assets, total liabilities, total equity, or net cash provided by operating activities as previously reported.

New Accounting Standards Updates

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases. The FASB subsequently issued a number of additional ASUs to update this guidance. This standard was issued to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by requiring that a right-of-use asset and corresponding lease liability be recorded on the balance sheet for leases with terms longer than 12 months. We elected to use three practical expedients allowed under the guidance. According to these practical expedients we did not reassess whether existing contracts are or contain a lease; we did not reassess whether existing leases are operating or finance leases; and we did not reassess the accounting for initial direct costs for existing leases. Our approach to adopting this new standard included a review of existing leases and other executory contracts that could contain embedded leases and we identified the key terms that were necessary for us to calculate the right-of-use asset and lease liability. These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the new ASU utilizing the modified retrospective transition method, which resulted in the recording of operating lease liabilities of $38.7 million as of January 1, 2019 on our consolidated balance sheet with an immaterial effect on our consolidated statement of stockholders’ equity (deficit) and no related effect on our consolidated statement of operations.

 

 

NOTE 2 — JOINT VENTURE

In August 2019, FTSI closed on the sale of its 45% equity ownership interest in SinoFTS Petroleum Services Ltd., FTSI’s joint venture in China, to Sinopec Oilfield Services Corporation, FTSI’s joint venture partner. In exchange, FTSI, through its affiliate FTS International Netherlands B.V., received consideration of $26.9 million for the sale of its equity interest, and through FTS International Services, LLC, received a royalty fee of $5.8 million for a license for its intellectual property use and for future limited support of the joint venture’s operations. After conducting an analysis of the relative fair values of the equity interest and royalty fee, FTSI allocated $30.7 million of the total consideration received to the sale of its equity interest and $2.0 million to the prepaid royalty fee. FTSI recognized a gain of $7.0 million on the sale of its equity interest. The prepaid royalty fee will be recognized over approximately the next six years.

Estimated fair values for our  Term Loan and 2022 Senior Notes were determined using recent trading activity and/or bid-ask spreads and are classified as Level 2 in the FASB’s fair value hierarchy. We believe we were in compliance with all of the covenants in our debt agreements at September 30, 2019.

Debt Repayments

In the first nine months of 2019, we repaid $31.0 million of aggregate principal amount of Term Loan using cash on hand. We recognized a loss on this debt extinguishment of $0.2 million.

In the first nine months of 2019, we repurchased $17.0 million of aggregate principal amount of 2022 Senior Notes in the qualified institutional buyer market using cash on hand. We recognized a gain on this debt extinguishment of $1.4 million.

Revolving Credit Facility

The maximum availability of credit under our revolving credit facility is limited at any time to the lesser of $250 million or a borrowing base. The borrowing base is based on percentages of eligible accounts receivable and eligible inventory and is subject to certain reserves. In an event of default or if the amount available under the credit facility is less than either 10% of our maximum availability or $12.5 million, we will be required to maintain a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.0 to 1.0. If at any time borrowings and letters of credit issued under the credit facility exceed the borrowing base, we will be required to repay an amount equal to such excess.

As of September  30, 2019, the borrowing base was $94.8 million and therefore our maximum availability under the credit facility was $94.8 million. As of September  30, 2019, there were no borrowings outstanding under the credit facility, and letters of credit totaling $4.3 million were issued, resulting in $90.5 million of availability under the credit facility.

We believe we were in compliance with all of the covenants in the credit facility at September  30, 2019.

NOTE 4 — LEASES

We lease certain administrative offices, sales offices, and operational facilities. We also lease some service equipment and light duty vehicles. These leases have remaining lease terms of 6 years or less. Some leases contain options to extend the leases, and some include options to terminate the leases. We do not include renewal or termination options in our assessment of the lease terms unless extension or termination for certain assets is deemed to be reasonably certain. The accounting for some of our leases requires significant judgment, which includes determining whether a contract contains a lease, determining the incremental borrowing rates, if necessary, to utilize in the calculation of our lease liabilities, and assessing the likelihood of renewal or termination options. We also have some lease agreements with lease and non-lease components, which are generally accounted for as a single lease component.

We provide residual value guarantees for our leases of light-duty vehicles and certain service equipment. No amounts related to these residual value guarantees have been deemed probable and included in the lease liabilities on our consolidated balance sheet; however, if the value for all of the vehicles was zero and if we cancelled these leases at September 30, 2019, we would be required to pay a total of $12.9 million in residual value guarantees.

We had no material amount of finance leases or subleases at September  30, 2019. We had no material variable lease costs for the three or nine months ended September  30, 2019. The following table summarizes the components of our lease costs:

NOTE 5 — SHARE REPURCHASE

In May 2019, our board of directors (our “Board”) approved an authorization for a total share repurchase of up to $100 million of the Company’s common stock to be executed through open market or private transactions. The authorization expires on May 14, 2020 and may be discontinued at any time. For the first nine months of 2019 we repurchased approximately 1,975,000 shares of common stock at an average price of $4.21 per share for a total of $8.3 million. At September  30, 2019,  $91.7 million of the authorized amount was available for share repurchases under this program.

The amount and timing of share repurchases are at the sole discretion of the Company, and plans for future share repurchases may be revised by the Board at any time. The share repurchase program could be affected by, among other things, changes in results of operations, capital expenditures, cash flows, and applicable tax laws.

NOTE 6 — REVENUE

The Company contracts with its customers to perform hydraulic fracturing services on one or more oil or natural gas wells. Under these arrangements, we satisfy our performance obligations as services are rendered, which is generally upon the completion of a fracturing stage or the passage of time. Pricing for our services is frequently negotiated with our customers and is based on prevailing market rates during each reporting period. The amounts we invoice our customers for services performed during a period are directly related to the value received by the customers for the period. There is no inherent uncertainty to the amount of consideration we will receive for services performed during a period and no judgment is required to allocate a portion of the transaction price to a future period. Accordingly, we are not required to identify any unsatisfied performance obligations nor attribute any revenue to them. We have no material contract assets or liabilities with our customers. We do not present disaggregated revenue because we do not believe this information is necessary to understand the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of our revenues and cash flows.

Supply Commitment Charges

We incur supply commitment charges when our purchases of sand from certain suppliers are less than the minimum purchase commitments in our supply contracts. According to the accounting guidance for firm purchase commitments, future losses that are considered likely are also required to be recorded in the current period.

During the first nine months of 2019 and 2018, we recorded aggregate charges under these supply contracts of $57.6 million and $16.0 million, respectively. These charges relate to actual purchase shortfalls incurred, as well as forecasted losses expected to be incurred and settled in future periods. These purchase shortfalls are largely due to our customers choosing to procure their own sand, often from sand mines closer to their operating areas.

In May 2019, we restructured and amended our largest sand supply contract to reduce the total remaining commitment through 2024 by approximately $162 million. This reduced our annual commitment from $47.9 million to $21.0 million from 2019 through 2024. The reduced annual commitments of $21.0 million represent the annual payments we would make under the contract if we do not purchase any sand from this vendor. Due to the terms of the amended agreement and our estimated future purchases under this contract, we determined that we would not be able to satisfy $11.0 million of the $21.0 million annual commitment with sand purchases for the last five years of the contract. Therefore, in connection with this amendment, we recorded a supply commitment charge of $55.0 million in the first quarter of 2019 to accelerate these purchase shortfalls. After recording the $55.0 million supply commitment charge in the first quarter of 2019, the amount of accrued supply commitment charges for future periods that was recognized on our consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2019 was $66.0 million. We paid $11.0 million of this amount in the second quarter of 2019 and we expect to pay the remaining $55.0 million in annual installments of $11.0 million from January 2020 through January 2024. These payments may be accelerated under limited circumstances. The remaining amount of the 2019 charges represent revised estimates of our purchase shortfalls under this contract for 2019.

After recording the $55.0 million supply commitment charge, the remaining annual purchase commitment that we must satisfy to avoid additional charges is $10.0 million. We will satisfy this annual purchase commitment if we purchase at least 1.0 million tons of sand per year, which we believe better matches our current and forecasted sand needs. If we purchase more than 1.0 million tons of sand in a year, then we could recover a portion of the supply commitment charge.

11

We entered into this contract in 2013 in connection with selling our sand mines, which was at a time when our then current and expected needs for sand were significantly higher than they are today. As our sand needs have declined over the years due to industry cycles and due to our customers choosing to procure their own sand, we and our supplier have continuously worked together to accommodate changing market conditions by amending the contract.

Estimated losses related to these supply contracts contain uncertainties, such as future customer demand and sand preferences. These uncertainties require us to use judgment to quantify these estimates. Actual results could materially differ from our estimates.

Fleet Capacity Reduction

In the fourth quarter of 2019, we decided to dispose of certain idle equipment where we now believe there is no expectation of future use. The equipment we have selected for disposal is comprised primarily of hydraulic fracturing pumps that are substantially depreciated. Certain hydraulic fracturing components, such as engines and transmissions that we believe to have remaining useful lives, will be removed prior to disposing of the equipment and used in our maintenance and repair activities for our remaining fleets. These disposals will reduce our capacity of equipment from 34 total fleets to 28 total fleets. The amount of proceeds we anticipate receiving from these disposals is not significant. We recorded an asset impairment of $4.2 million in connection with these anticipated disposals.

Discontinued Wireline Operations

In May 2019, we decided to discontinue our wireline operations due to underperformance. We are in the process of identifying the best options for disposing of these assets. As a result of this decision, we recorded an asset impairment of $2.8 million and an inventory write-down of $1.4 million in the first quarter of 2019 to adjust these assets to their estimated fair market values and net realizable values, respectively.

Other Impairments

In the second quarter of 2019, we recorded $2.7 million of impairments for certain land and buildings that we no longer use. We are closely monitoring current industry conditions and future expectations. If  current industry conditions continue for a prolonged period or worsen, we may be subject to impairments of long-lived assets or intangible assets in future periods.

NOTE 8 — INCOME TAXES

In 2012, we established a full valuation allowance with respect to our U.S. federal deferred tax assets and state deferred tax assets in excess of our deferred tax liabilities. We have continued to record a valuation allowance for these net deferred tax assets since 2012. As a result, we only recorded income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September  30, 2019 and 2018 for states that limit the deduction of net operating loss carryforwards and for foreign income taxes. Deferred tax assets related to our U.S. federal and state operating losses are still available to us to offset future taxable income, subject to limitations in the event of a change of control under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. At September  30, 2019, we had not incurred such an ownership change.

At each reporting date, we consider all available positive and negative evidence to evaluate whether our deferred tax assets are more likely than not to be realized. A significant piece of negative evidence that we consider is that the Company generated a loss before income taxes for each year from 2012 to 2016. Such negative evidence weighs heavily against other more subjective positive evidence such as projections for future taxable income.

The Company generated income before income taxes in 2017 and 2018 and has generated cumulative income for its most recent three year period. This represents positive evidence that we may be able to realize some or all of our deferred tax assets; however, due to the negative evidence of our annual losses generated from 2012 through 2016, the significant cyclicality of our business in recent years,  and our loss before income taxes for the first nine months of 2019, we concluded that a full valuation allowance was still required at September  30, 2019.

The accreted value of our convertible preferred stock was $1,132.7 million at December 31, 2017. In connection with the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) in 2018, the convertible preferred stock was recapitalized into 39.4 million shares of common stock. These shares of common stock had a value of $709.5 million at the IPO share price of $18.00, which resulted in a net reversal of $423.2 million of convertible preferred stock accretion previously recognized.

NOTE 10 — COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Purchase Obligations

We have purchase commitments with certain vendors to supply a significant portion of the proppant used in our operations. These agreements have remaining terms ranging from one to six years. Some of these agreements have minimum unconditional purchase obligations. See Note 7 – “Impairments and Other Charges” for more discussion of these purchase commitments.

Litigation

In the ordinary course of business, we are subject to various legal proceedings and claims, some of which may not be covered by insurance. Many of these legal proceedings and claims are in early stages, and many of them seek an indeterminate amount of damages. We estimate and provide for potential losses that may arise out of legal proceedings and claims to the extent that such losses are probable and can be reasonably estimated. Significant judgment is required in making these estimates and our final liabilities may ultimately be materially different from these estimates. When preparing our estimates, we consider, among other factors, the progress of each legal proceeding and claim, our experience and the experience of others in similar legal proceedings and claims, and the opinions and views of legal counsel. Legal costs related to litigation contingencies are expensed as incurred.

With respect to the litigation matters below, if there is an adverse outcome individually or collectively, there could be a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position or results of operations. These litigation matters are subject to inherent uncertainties and management’s view of these matters may change in the future. Therefore, there can be no assurance as to the ultimate outcome of these matters. Regardless of the outcome, any such litigation and claims can have an adverse impact on the Company because of defense and settlement costs, diversion of management resources and other factors.

Patterson v. FTS International Manufacturing, LLC and FTS International Services, LLC: On June 24, 2015, Joshua Patterson filed a lawsuit against the Company in the 115th Judicial District Court of Upshur County, Texas, alleging, among other things, that the Company was negligent with respect to an automobile accident in 2013. Mr. Patterson sought monetary relief of more than $1 million. On July 19, 2018, a jury returned a verdict of approximately $100 million, including punitive damages, against the Company. The trial court reduced the judgment on November 12, 2018 to approximately $33 million. The Company’s insurance carriers have been defending the suit and are appealing the final judgment. The Company’s appellate brief was filed with the Twelfth Court of Appeals on June 28, 2019. While the outcome of this case is uncertain, the Company has met its insurance deductible for this matter and we do not expect the ultimate resolution of this case to have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial statements.

Securities Act Litigation: On February 22, 2019, Carol Glock filed a purported securities class action in the 160th Civil District Court of Dallas County, Texas (Cause No. DC-19-02668) against the Company, certain of our officers, directors and stockholders, and certain of the underwriters of our IPO. The petition is brought on behalf of an alleged class of persons or entities who purchased our common stock in or traceable to our IPO, and purports to allege claims arising under Sections 11 and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The petition generally alleges that the defendants violated federal securities laws relating to the disclosure in the registration statement and prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with our IPO. The petition seeks, among other relief, class certification, damages in an amount in excess of $1.0 million, and reasonable costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees. The Company has insurance coverage on this matter and has hired counsel to vigorously defend the case. Defendants have filed Special Exceptions to the petition and have requested dismissal if the defects cannot be cured. While the outcome of this case is uncertain, we do not expect the ultimate resolution of this case to have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial statements.

We believe that costs associated with other legal matters will not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial statements.

Item 2.Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Unless the context requires otherwise, the use of the terms “FTSI,” “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our” or “ours” refer to FTS International, Inc., together with its consolidated subsidiaries. The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes that appear elsewhere in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q as well as information in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. Unless otherwise specified, all comparisons made are to the corresponding period of 2018.

Overview

We are one of the largest providers of hydraulic fracturing services in North America. Our services stimulate hydrocarbon flow from oil and natural gas wells drilled by exploration and production (“E&P”) companies primarily in shale resource formations. We had 1.7 million total hydraulic horsepower across 34 fleets, with 18 fleets active as of September 30, 2019. Subsequent to September 30, 2019, we decided to dispose of certain idle equipment that will reduce our capacity to 1.4 million total hydraulic horsepower across 28 fleets. We operate in five major basins in the United States: the Permian Basin, the SCOOP/STACK Formation, the Marcellus/Utica Shale, the Eagle Ford Shale and the Haynesville Shale.

Summary Financial Results

·

Total revenue for the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 was $186.0 million and $634.3 million, which represented a decrease of $148.4 million and $660.9 million, respectively, from the same periods in 2018.

·

Net loss for the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 was $10.8 million and $59.9 million, which represented a decrease of $60.4 million and $291.8 million, respectively, from the same periods in 2018. The first quarter of 2019 included a supply commitment charge of $56.6 million.

·

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 was $20.6 million and $101.9 million, which represented a decrease of $74.4 million and $269.5 million, respectively, from the same periods in 2018.

·

Total principal amount of long-term debt was $459.9 million at September 30, 2019, which represented a decrease of $48.0 million from December 31, 2018.

Industry trends and business outlook

Our business depends on the willingness of E&P companies to make expenditures to explore for, develop, and produce oil and natural gas in the United States. The willingness of E&P companies to undertake these activities is predominantly influenced by current and expected future prices for oil and natural gas. A widely watched indicator of E&P companies’ aggregate activity levels is the drilling rig count, or rig count. The active horizontal rig count is a subset of the total rig count and is the most strongly correlated with the aggregate industry demand for hydraulic fracturing services. The average horizontal rig count was approximately 860 for the first nine months of 2019, compared to an average of approximately 890 for the first nine months of 2018, according to a report by Baker Hughes.

The prices that we are able to charge for our services is affected by the supply of hydraulic fracturing equipment that is available in the market to meet customer demand. Since the middle of 2018, the supply of hydraulic fracturing equipment has exceeded the demand for equipment, and as a result, the pricing for our services declined in the second half of 2018 and has declined further in 2019. If the oversupply of equipment remains active in the market, pricing could decline further.

In response to this competitive market environment, we remain disciplined with respect to our number of active fleets and we remain focused on optimizing our utilization and profitability. We reduced our active fleet count from 28 fleets in the second quarter of 2018 to 18 fleets in the third quarter of 2019 because certain fleets did not meet our utilization and profitability targets. We believe that the total marketed supply of hydraulic fracturing equipment has declined in 2019, but at a slower rate than the decline in the demand for hydraulic fracturing equipment.

Based on conversations with our customers, we currently expect a further decrease in demand for our services in the fourth quarter of 2019. With this expected decrease in demand and the continuing oversupply of equipment in the market, we currently expect to reduce our active fleet count by two or three additional fleets in the fourth quarter of 2019.
