Revenue increased sequentially $163 thousand, or 5%, and $2.0 million, or 130%, year-over-year. Improvements over both periods reflects higher demand as oil and gas production markets continued to improve and as the Company gains greater market presence.

Story continues

For the third quarter 2021, approximately 85% of revenue was from North America and approximately 15% from International markets, all within the Middle East. Revenue in North America grew year-over-year from increased tool sales and rentals as well as higher royalty and repair fees. International revenue growth reflects growing market penetration including increased demand from a new International customer gained in the second quarter. Contract Services revenue improved sequentially and year-over-year, reflecting higher demand for both new drilling tools and refurbishments.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense and unusual items. See the attached tables for important disclosures regarding SDP’s use of Adjusted EBITDA, as well as a reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA.

Higher costs associated with International sales impacted the cost of revenue. Nonetheless, strong operating leverage from higher volume and continued effective management of costs resulted in a measurable improvement of operating income to $163 thousand, or 4.6% of sales.

Improved operating income and lower tax expense resulted in breakeven results with a net loss of $6 thousand. The decrease in income tax expense from the prior year was due to a decrease in income in foreign jurisdictions. Adjusted EBITDA(1) improved year-over-year to $853 thousand as a result of increased sales and operating leverage gained from higher volume, while Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 23.9%.

The Company believes that when used in conjunction with measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure, helps in the understanding of its operating performance.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Cash at the end of the quarter was $2.5 million, up $508 thousand from the end of 2020. Cash provided by operations in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $878 thousand. Long-term debt, including the current portion, at quarter-end was $2.6 million, which reflects a principal payment of $750 thousand made on the Hard Rock note during the period. The remaining $750 thousand of principal due on the note is payable on October 5, 2022.

Subsequent to quarter-end, in October 2021, the Company completed an equity offering of 1,739,131 shares of common stock at a price of $1.15 per share. This resulted in net proceeds of approximately $1.7 million to be used for general corporate purposes, which may include capital expenditures, repayment or refinancing of indebtedness, acquisition and repurchases or redemptions of securities.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA represents net income adjusted for income taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization and other items as noted in the reconciliation table. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important supplemental measure of operating performance and uses it to assess performance and inform operating decisions. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not a GAAP financial measure. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be used as a substitute for GAAP measures of performance, including net cash provided by operations, operating income and net income. The Company’s method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA may vary substantially from the methods used by other companies and investors are cautioned not to rely unduly on it.
