HOUSTON, April 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oceaneering International, Inc. ("Oceaneering") (NYSE:OII) today reported a net loss of $19.2 million, or $(0.19) per share, on revenue of $446 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. Adjusted net loss was $6.4 million, or $(0.06) per share, reflecting the impact of $0.4 million of pre-tax adjustments associated with foreign exchange gains recognized during the quarter and $13.1 million of discrete tax adjustments, primarily due to changes in valuation allowances.

During the prior quarter ended December 31, 2021, Oceaneering reported net loss of $38.8 million, or $(0.39) per share, on revenue of $467 million. Adjusted net income was $5.0 million, or $0.05 per share, reflecting the impact of $30.6 million of pre-tax adjustments associated with the write-off of certain uncollectible accounts and foreign exchange losses recognized during the quarter and $19.6 million of discrete tax adjustments, primarily due to changes in valuation allowances.

Adjusted operating income (loss), operating margins, net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA (as well as EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margins), and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures that exclude the impacts of certain identified items.

For the first quarter of 2022:

  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was $31.5 million

  • Consolidated Operating Loss was $1.0 million

  • Cash position decreased by $100 million, from $538 million to $438 million

As of March 31, 2022:

  • Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV): fleet count was 250; Q1 utilization was 53%; and Q1 average revenue per day on hire was $8,196

  • Manufactured Products: backlog was $334 million

Re-confirmed guidance for 2022:

  • Consolidated EBITDA of $225 million to $275 million

  • Continued significant free cash flow generation in the range of $75 million to $125 million

  • Increased growth capital expenditures as compared to 2021

Roderick A. Larson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Oceaneering, stated, "Our consolidated first quarter 2022 unfolded largely as expected as we experienced higher costs for hiring and training of personnel and mobilization of equipment in preparation for a significant activity increase anticipated for the remainder of 2022. These costs mostly impacted our energy segments. Nonetheless, each of our operating segments generated positive operating income and positive EBITDA in the quarter. Our Offshore Projects Group (OPG) segment experienced cost overruns on a project and schedule changes that affected the timing of project work, however, these impacts were largely offset by lower Unallocated Expenses and slightly improved results from our Aerospace and Defense Technologies (ADTech) segment. Consistent with our first quarter guidance, these factors resulted in consolidated adjusted EBITDA of $31.5 million, a significant decrease from the prior quarter. Based on our refreshed outlook for the year, we believe market conditions continue to be supportive of a robust ramp-up in activity and pricing improvements beginning in the second quarter and continuing for the remainder of the year. This outlook, coupled with increased vessel capacity during the remainder of the year, gives us the confidence to maintain our original EBITDA guidance range.

Segment Results:

"Our first quarter 2022 Subsea Robotics (SSR) operating income was significantly lower on a modest decrease in revenue, as compared to the fourth quarter 2021. Operations were impacted by seasonal factors, resulting in reduced ROV activity and increased costs associated with hiring, training, and asset preparedness for anticipated 2022 work. These factors resulted in a reduced EBITDA margin of 24% for the first quarter. We anticipate the work associated with these costs to materialize over the remainder of 2022 with EBITDA margins recovering as well.

"First quarter 2022 ROV days on hire were sequentially lower due to typically lower seasonal activity. Our ROV fleet use during the first quarter 2022 was 63% in drill support and 37% in vessel-based activity, versus fourth quarter 2021 use of 62% and 38%, respectively. Fleet utilization declined slightly, averaging 53% for the quarter, as compared to 55% for the fourth quarter 2021. Sequentially, average ROV revenue per day on hire of $8,196 was essentially flat.

"Manufactured Products first quarter 2022 operating income declined, as compared to the fourth quarter 2021 adjusted results, on a 20% decline in segment revenue. Operating income margin decreased to 3% in the first quarter of 2022, from an adjusted 9% margin in the fourth quarter 2021, primarily due to the inability to fully absorb fixed costs of the segment over a reduced revenue base. Our energy products businesses experienced good order intake in the first quarter, while bookings in our mobility solutions businesses continued to lag. Manufactured Products backlog was $334 million on March 31, 2022, compared to $318 million on December 31, 2021. Our book-to-bill ratio was 1.2 for the trailing 12 months, as compared to the book-to-bill ratio of 1.1 for the year ended December 31, 2021.

"Our first quarter 2022 OPG operating income declined sequentially, despite higher revenue. Operating income margin declined to 1% in the first quarter, from 8% in the fourth quarter 2021, due to cost overruns experienced on a project and lower-than-expected vessel utilization resulting from the aforementioned schedule changes that affected the timing of project work. As with our other offshore service businesses, we experienced higher costs in the first quarter of 2022 in connection with hiring and equipment readiness to prepare for expected higher activity during the remainder of 2022.

"Integrity Management and Digital Solutions (IMDS) first quarter 2022 operating income was lower than the fourth quarter 2021 on a 6% seasonal decrease in revenue. Operating income margin declined to 6% in the first quarter of 2022, from 10% in the fourth quarter 2021, primarily due to less efficient absorption of fixed costs.

"ADTech first quarter 2022 operating income improved sequentially on slightly lower revenue. Operating income margin of 15% improved over the 13% achieved for the fourth quarter 2021 due to favorable project mix.

"At the corporate level, for the first quarter of 2022, Unallocated Expenses of $31.3 million were lower than expected as we reduced spending to better align with our revenue streams.

Second Quarter 2022 Guidance:

"For the second quarter, as compared to the first quarter, we anticipate significantly higher activity levels and operating profitability improvement in our SSR and OPG segments, increased activity levels and operating profitability improvement in our IMDS and ADTech segments, and higher activity levels in our Manufactured Products segment. Unallocated Expenses are forecast to be in the mid-$30 million range. On a consolidated basis, sequentially, we expect second quarter 2022 results to improve significantly, with EBITDA in the range of $50 million to $70 million on higher revenue. This wider-than-usual range reflects uncertainty in the timing of certain anticipated product sales and project work, as well as attained levels of offshore utilization and pricing.

Full Year 2022 Guidance:

"For the full year of 2022, at the segment level, as compared to 2021, we forecast SSR operating results to improve on higher revenue, and EBITDA margin to average in the low 30% range. ROV fleet utilization is expected to be in the mid-60% range for the year. For Manufactured Products, we forecast higher operating results, on a significant increase in revenue, as compared to 2021, with backlog additions from 2021 resulting in significantly higher revenue in the second half of this year. We expect operating margin to be in the low- to mid-single-digit range, and our book-to-bill ratio is expected to be in the range of 1.0 to 1.2 for the full year. For OPG, we recently added vessel capacity to meet a forecasted increase in intervention, maintenance and repair (IMR) activity. We expect increased vessel utilization and pricing to improve OPG’s operating margins into the low- to mid-teen range for the remainder of the year. For IMDS, we forecast improved operating results on higher revenue with operating margin to be essentially flat as compared to 2021. And for ADTech, we expect slightly lower operating results on increased revenue with an annual operating margin in the mid-teens range. Unallocated Expenses are expected to average in the mid-$30 million range per quarter for the remainder of 2022. On a consolidated basis, we continue to expect full year 2022 EBITDA in the range of $225 million to $275 million.

Cash and Liquidity:

"Our use of cash in the first quarter was as planned and consistent with the quarterly trends we have experienced over the last few years. Similar to prior years, we project generating positive free cash flow in each of the remaining quarters of 2022 and maintain our expectation to generate free cash flow in the range of $75 million to $125 million for the full year of 2022. We continue to forecast our 2022 cash tax payments to be in the range of $40 million to $45 million, and our organic capital expenditures to total between $70 million and $90 million.

"Subsequent to quarter-end, we announced our entry into a new, undrawn $215 million senior secured revolving credit facility, replacing our prior facility, which should give us financial flexibility over the next four years. We remain committed to investing in growth, but at the same time plan to prioritize our investments to maximize our returns while maintaining our free cash flow profile."
