“Our team once again has demonstrated our ability to perform exceptionally well. Over the last two years, we have delivered in the face of adversity and now with markets accelerating are expanding capacity, producing efficiently and meeting customer demand. As a result, we had an excellent first quarter that demonstrated the significant leverage inherent in our operations with EBITDA margin expanding 360 basis points to 24.5% over the trailing December quarter on just 4.5% increase in revenue,” commented Troy Meier, Chairman and CEO. “A regularly growing number of operators in North America are realizing the value of our Drill-N-Ream® wellbore conditioning tool (“DNR”), demand is also increasing for our quality manufacturing and refurbishment services and our markets are consistently improving. We are encouraged with the development of our new associates brought on last year that are now producing at a higher rate, which has also allowed us to take on more contract service work.”

He added, “Our commitment to training and efficiency remain a priority as we make further investments in building out our team with skilled experts. In addition, to support our growth expectations, we recently invested $1.1 million in new machinery that is expected to increase our capacity for both the manufacture and refurbishment of drill bits as well as other contract manufacturing work. We are excited about our future and believe that we can continue to outperform as we advance through 2022 and beyond.”

Revenue growth reflects the continued recovery in the North America oil & gas industry, strengthened market share for the DNR and continued strong demand for the manufacture and refurbishment of drill bits and other related tools.

For the first quarter of 2022, North America revenue comprised approximately 90% of total revenue, with remaining sales all within the Middle East. International markets, while showing improvement year-over-year, remain under pressure as pandemic-related restrictions persist and remain an obstacle to travel and labor recruitment. Revenue in North America grew year-over-year from increased tool revenue and strong growth in Contract Services.

(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 volume combined with cost discipline, improved processes and operational efficiencies are resulting in enhanced leverage despite continued investments in people and inflationary pressures. Selling, general & administrative expenses were 39.9% of revenue, a measurable improvement from the prior-year period, and were 210 basis points lower sequentially.

Depreciation and amortization expense decreased approximately 40% year-over-year to $411 thousand as a result of fully amortizing a portion of intangible assets and fully depreciating manufacturing center equipment.

Net income for the quarter was $150 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, up from a net loss of $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2021. Net income for the sequential fourth quarter was elevated due to the recovery of principal and interest of a related party note receivable during the period.

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $1.0 million, or 24.5% of sales, further demonstrating the strong inherent operating leverage in the business. 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 $2.9 million, up slightly from year-end 2021. Cash generated by operations for the quarter was $1.1 million compared with $205 thousand in the year ago period, largely reflecting the improvement in net income. Capital expenditures were $919 thousand in the quarter and included a down payment of $287 thousand to secure a new CNC machine.

Long-term debt, including the current portion, at quarter-end, was $2.3 million, down 5% from December 31, 2021. The final $750 thousand of principal due on the Hard Rock note is payable on October 5, 2022.

(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.
