THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Newpark Resources, Inc. (NYSE: NR) ("Newpark" or the "Company") today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2021. Total revenues for the second quarter of 2021 were $142.2 million compared to $141.2 million for the first quarter of 2021 and $101.9 million for the second quarter of 2020. Net loss for the second quarter of 2021 was $6.0 million, or ($0.07) per share, compared to a net loss of $5.4 million, or ($0.06) per share, for the first quarter of 2021, and a net loss of $26.2 million, or ($0.29) per share, for the second quarter of 2020.

Second quarter 2021 results include a $1.0 million pre-tax gain in the Industrial Solutions segment ($0.01 per share after-tax) related to a legal settlement as well as $0.6 million of pre-tax charges in the Fluids Systems segment ($0.01 per share after-tax) related to severance costs.

Paul Howes, Newpark's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our second quarter results reflect another step forward in our strategy execution, as we continue to reshape and position the Company for sustainable and profitable growth. Consolidated revenues improved 1% sequentially to $142 million, with a 28% increase in international Fluids Systems revenues and a 15% improvement in Industrial Solutions rental and service revenues offsetting the previously anticipated pullback in Industrial Solutions product sales. 

"Our Industrial Solutions business continues to demonstrate the value of our diversification efforts, as we expand our presence in the power transmission and other industrial end-markets. As anticipated, coming off the exceptionally strong first quarter product sales, segment revenues declined 15% sequentially to $45 million in the second quarter, as site access product sales pulled back to $10 million for the quarter. Partially offsetting the product sales reduction, rental and service revenues improved 15% sequentially, contributing $33 million of revenues in the second quarter, including a record $25 million contribution from the power transmission and other industrial end-markets, reflecting strong performance both in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. With the lower revenue, our Industrial Solutions operating margin declined modestly to 22% in the second quarter."

Howes continued, "In the Fluids Systems segment, revenues improved 11% sequentially, benefitting from project start-ups and the early phases of recovery within certain international markets, following the COVID-related disruptions that significantly impacted the previous four quarters. Our international revenues improved 28% sequentially to $35 million in the second quarter, benefitting primarily from improvements in Europe and North Africa. In North America, revenues improved modestly to $62 million, with a 19% improvement in the U.S. largely offset by the seasonal pullback in Canada. Despite the revenue growth and positive earnings contribution from our international business, the Fluids segment remained below EBITDA break-even in the second quarter, impacted by elevated operating expenses, including employee severance and costs associated with our ongoing inventory rationalization efforts. In addition, the quarter was impacted by an unfavorable sales mix on U.S. land, which we expect to normalize going forward.

"For the first half of 2021, we generated $26 million of cash from operations, while leveraging our capital-light business model to deliver $25 million of Free Cash Flow, ending the second quarter with a total debt balance of $78 million and a cash balance of $35 million," added Howes. "With an improving economic outlook and a very modest debt burden, we are well positioned to fund our growth objectives and generate strong free cash flow over the long-term."

Balance Sheet Classification of Convertible Notes due December 2021

Our U.S. asset-based loan facility ("ABL Facility") requires that we meet certain minimum financial requirements to include eligible rental mat assets in the ABL Facility borrowing availability as well as to utilize the ABL Facility to fund the repayment of our Convertible Notes. As measured on the trailing twelve-month period ended June 30, 2021, we have satisfied these ABL Facility requirements and intend to fund the repayment of the Convertible Notes due December 2021 utilizing borrowings under the ABL Facility, which matures in March 2024. Accordingly, the Convertible Notes were reclassified from current debt to long-term debt in the June 30, 2021 balance sheet. After giving effect to satisfying the ABL Facility requirements, total availability under the ABL Facility is $108 million, inclusive of $24 million in eligible rental mats, with $21 million outstanding as of August 2, 2021.

Segment Results

The Fluids Systems segment generated revenues of $97.1 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $87.8 million for the first quarter of 2021 and $74.7 million for the second quarter of 2020. Segment operating loss was $6.5 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to an operating loss of $6.8 million for the first quarter of 2021 and an operating loss of $25.1 million for the second quarter of 2020. Operating loss for the second quarter of 2021 includes $0.6 million of charges related to severance costs. Operating loss for the second quarter of 2020 included $11.7 million of charges primarily related to inventory write-downs, severance costs, and facility exit costs.

The Industrial Solutions segment generated revenues of $45.2 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $53.3 million for the first quarter of 2021 and $27.3 million for the second quarter of 2020. Segment operating income was $10.1 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $13.1 million for the first quarter of 2021 and $1.0 million for the second quarter of 2020. Operating income for the second quarter of 2021 includes a $1.0 million gain related to a legal settlement.

Non-GAAP Reconciliations

(Unaudited)

To help understand the Company's financial performance, the Company has supplemented its financial results that it provides in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") with non-GAAP financial measures. Such financial measures include earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), EBITDA Margin, Free Cash Flow, Net Debt, and the Ratio of Net Debt to Capital.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors, securities analysts and other parties in the evaluation of our performance and liquidity with that of other companies in our industry. Management uses these measures to evaluate our operating performance, liquidity and capital structure. In addition, our incentive compensation plan measures performance based on our consolidated EBITDA, along with other factors. The methods we use to produce these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from methods used by other companies. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA and EBITDA Margin

The following tables reconcile the Company's net income (loss) or segment operating income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measure of EBITDA:
