    ソース: Nasdaq GlobeNewswire / 29 7 2019 18:45:03   America/New_York

    HOUSTON, July 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Archrock, Inc. (NYSE: AROC) (“Archrock”) today reported results for the second quarter of 2019.

    Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

    • Net income for the second quarter of 2019 was $11.4 million compared to $4.1 million in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure as defined below) for the second quarter of 2019 was $100.7 million, up 19% compared to the second quarter of 2018.
    • Total operating horsepower at the end of the second quarter of 2019 was 3.6 million, up 257,000 horsepower compared to the second quarter of 2018.
    • Previously declared quarterly dividend of $0.145 per common share for the second quarter of 2019 represents growth of 10% compared to the first quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2018. Dividend coverage for the second quarter of 2019 was 2.51x.

    Management Commentary and Outlook

    “Archrock’s business performed exceptionally well during the second quarter,” said Brad Childers, Archrock’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We achieved a gross margin of 62% in our contract operations segment driven by strong execution from our team. Additionally, we grew our operating horsepower by 50,000 as we deployed large horsepower units at attractive prices, predominantly in oil plays with associated gas production. Our 2019 new build compression units are substantially committed, and we have already begun booking units for 2020.”

    “In addition to our strong operational performance and organic growth, we were excited to announce the addition of the Elite Compression business to Archrock,” continued Childers. “The transaction adds 430,000 horsepower of highly-utilized, predominantly large compression assets to our fleet, and is immediately accretive to earnings and cash flow. Elite’s high-quality assets, blue chip customer base and large horsepower focus will further strengthen our position as the leading U.S. compression provider and continue to drive shareholder value. We expect the transaction to close later this week.”

    “The Elite transaction also supports our ability to achieve our stated financial targets, including reducing our leverage to below 4.0x in 2020, growing our dividend between 10% and 15% annually through 2020 and maintaining dividend coverage of more than 2.0x through 2020,” continued Childers. “Our updated full-year 2019 guidance includes the contribution from the acquisition of Elite.”

    “Market conditions for compression remain highly constructive. We believe that the abundance of affordable U.S. natural gas will continue to support growth in its demand, use and production, creating opportunities for the continued expansion of midstream infrastructure, including compression,” concluded Childers.

    Contract Operations

    For the second quarter of 2019, contract operations segment revenue totaled $186.3 million, an increase of 13% compared to $165.5 million in the second quarter of 2018. Gross margin was $115.7 million, up $18.1 million or 19% from the second quarter of 2018, reflecting a gross margin percentage of 62% compared to 59% in the prior year second quarter. Total operating horsepower at the end of the second quarter of 2019 was 3.6 million, up from 3.4 million at the end of the prior year second quarter, an 8% increase. Utilization at the end of the second quarter of 2019 was 88% compared to 86% at the end of the second quarter of 2018.

    Aftermarket Services

    For the second quarter of 2019, aftermarket services segment revenue totaled $52.1 million, a decrease of 15% compared to $61.4 million in the second quarter of 2018 due to customers delaying maintenance activities. Gross margin percentage of 19% was higher by 2% compared to 17% in the second quarter of 2018.

    Balance Sheet

    Total consolidated debt as of June 30, 2019 was $1.63 billion compared to $1.58 billion as of March 31, 2019. Archrock’s leverage ratio was 4.4x as of June 30, 2019 compared to 4.9x as of June 30, 2018.

    Quarterly Dividend

    Archrock’s Board of Directors recently declared a quarterly dividend of $0.145 per share of common stock, or $0.58 per share on an annualized basis, representing an increase of 10% sequentially. Dividend coverage in the second quarter of 2019 was 2.51x. The dividend will be paid on August 14, 2019 to stockholders of record at the close of business on August 7, 2019.

    2019 Annual Guidance

    Archrock is providing updated annual guidance as listed below.  This guidance reflects the net expected results to Archrock, after giving effect to the acquisition of Elite Compression and the divestiture of certain midstream assets to Harvest Midstream, for the months of August through December of 2019.  All figures are in thousands, except percentages and ratios:

    (1) 2019 annual guidance for net income includes $11.7 million of long-lived asset impairments as of June 30, 2019, but does not include a forecast of long-lived asset impairment because due to its nature it cannot be accurately forecasted. Long-lived asset impairment does not impact adjusted EBITDA or cash available for dividend, however it is a reconciling item between these measures and net income. Long-lived asset impairment for the years ended 2018 and 2017 was $28.1 million and $29.1 million, respectively.

    (2) Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because this non-GAAP measure, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provides a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses this non-GAAP measure as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance, comparability measures and performance measures for period-to-period comparisons.

    (3) Management uses cash available for dividend as a supplemental performance measure. Using this metric, management can quickly compute the coverage ratio of estimated cash flows to planned dividends.

    (4) A forward-looking estimate of cash provided by operating activities is not provided because certain items necessary to estimate cash provided by operating activities, including changes in assets and liabilities, are not estimable at this time. Changes in assets and liabilities were $21.7 million, $(13.2) million and $2.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and the years ended 2018 and 2017, respectively.

    (1) 2019 annual guidance for net income includes $11.7 million of long-lived asset impairments as of June 30, 2019, but does not include a forecast of long-lived asset impairment because due to its nature it cannot be accurately forecasted. Long-lived asset impairment does not impact adjusted EBITDA or cash available for dividend, however it is a reconciling item between these measures and net income. Long-lived asset impairment for the years ended 2018 and 2017 was $28.1 million and $29.1 million, respectively.
    (2) Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because this non-GAAP measure, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provides a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses this non-GAAP measure as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance, comparability measure and performance measure for period-to-period comparisons.
    (3) Management uses cash available for dividend as a supplemental performance measure. Using this metric, management can quickly compute the coverage ratio of estimated cash flows to planned dividends.
    (4) A forward-looking estimate of cash provided by operating activities is not provided because certain items necessary to estimate cash provided by operating activities, including changes in assets and liabilities, are not estimable at this time. Changes in assets and liabilities were $21.7 million, $(13.2) million and $2.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and the years ended 2018 and 2017, respectively.
