|Superior Energy Services, Inc. Posts Record Third Quarter 2006 Results|
EPS Increases Almost Five Fold Over the Third Quarter of 2005 and
HARVEY, La., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Superior Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: SPN) today announced record net income of $55.2 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.68, on revenues of $290.5 million, as compared to net income of $9.4 million, or $0.12 diluted earnings per share on revenues of $184.1 million for the third quarter of 2005.
As compared to the second quarter of 2006, revenues increased 11%, operating income increased 16% and earnings per share increased 42%.
Highlights for the quarter include:
Terence Hall, Chairman and CEO of Superior, commented, "Our third quarter results were outstanding and all business units performed very well. We also made tremendous strides in executing our growth strategy during the quarter. In July, we announced multiple international contracts totaling more than $100 million as part of our international expansion initiatives. In September, we agreed to acquire Warrior Energy Services Corporation (Nasdaq: WARR) which will significantly expand our U.S. onshore operational footprint.
"Once the Warrior transaction is closed, we will have operations in virtually all major oil and gas basins in the lower 48 states and an excellent platform to drive our continued growth. Both these international and U.S. onshore activities increase our ability to cross sell services, open up additional opportunities to further export our portfolio of products and services, and expand our customer base. We believe shareholders will benefit from our expansion activities in 2007 and well beyond."
For the nine months ended September 30, 2006, revenues were $774.7 million and net income was $126.1 million or $1.55 diluted earnings per share, as compared to revenues of $547.3 million and net income of $51.6 million or $0.65 diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2005.
Well Intervention Group Segment
Third quarter revenues for the Well Intervention Group were a record $122.2 million, a 9% increase from the second quarter of 2006 and a 42% increase from the third quarter of 2005. Operating income was $28.8 million, or 24% of segment revenue, up from $25.7 million, or 23% of segment revenue, in the second quarter of 2006. The biggest activity increases were in coiled tubing, engineering and project management services, well control, mechanical wireline and plug and abandonment services. These increases reflect continued high demand for production-enhancement activities, increased well abandonment work in the Gulf of Mexico and the company's continued involvement in providing hurricane-recovery project management and services.
Rental Tools Segment
Revenues for the Rental Tools segment were a record $98.3 million, 13% higher than the second quarter of 2006 and a 59% increase from the third quarter of 2005. Operating income was $35.1 million, or 36% of segment revenue, up from $29.4 million, or 34% of segment revenue in the second quarter of 2006. The primary factors leading to the record quarter were increased rentals of on-site accommodations, stabilizers, drill collars, specialty tubulars, drill pipe and associated handling tools across all geographic markets.
Superior's marine revenues were $36.0 million, a 6% increase over the second quarter of 2006 and a 95% increase from the third quarter of 2005. Operating income was $16.2 million, or 45% of segment revenue, up from $15.3 million, or 45% of segment revenue in the second quarter of 2006. Average fleet utilization was 78% as compared to 84% in the second quarter of 2006, but average daily revenue in the third quarter was approximately $391,000, inclusive of subsistence revenue, as compared to $373,000 per day in the second quarter of 2006, reflecting higher dayrates which were put into place during the quarter.
During the third quarter, the 145-155 ft. class and 160-175 ft. class incurred significant downtime due to shipyard days. Effective utilization, which is utilization excluding shipyard days or other idle days due to repairs and maintenance, was 100% across all liftboat classes in the third quarter, meaning no liftboat was idle for something other than inspections or repairs. This marks the second consecutive quarter that effective utilization was 100%.
Liftboat Average Dayrates and Utilization by Class Size Three Months Ended September 30, 2006 ($ actual) Average Class Liftboats Dayrate Utilization 145-155' 11 $10,856 70.2% 160'-175' 6 14,149 69.7% 200' 4 17,456 95.7% 230'-245' 3 28,996 98.6% 250' 2 36,856 82.6% Oil and Gas Segment
Oil and gas revenues were $38.2 million, a 14% increase over second quarter 2006 levels and a 76% improvement over the third quarter of 2005. Operating income was $8.1 million, or 21% of segment revenue, up from $5.5 million, or 16% of segment revenue, in the second quarter of 2006. Third quarter production was approximately 739,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe), or about 8,000 boe per day, up from approximately 636,000 boe, or 7,000 boe per day in the second quarter of 2006, and approximately 427,000 boe, or about 4,600 boe per day in the third quarter of 2005. Production during the third quarter of 2005 was adversely impacted by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
