Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Results

  • Net income for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $13.0 million compared to net income of $49.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Net income for 2018 was $29.2 million, up 58% compared to 2017. The fourth quarter and full year 2017 results include an income tax benefit of $53.4 million from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and the fourth quarter and full year 2018 results include a net benefit from tax audits and settlements of $9.5 million.

Adjusted EBITDA was $352.3 million for 2018, up 26% compared to 2017. Results for the fourth quarter and full year 2018 also include the net benefit from tax audits and settlements of $9.5 million.
  • Total operating horsepower increased by 65,000 for the fourth quarter of 2018, resulting in a 2018 total operating horsepower increase of 277,000, up 9% as compared to 2017 exit operating horsepower.
  • Previously declared quarterly dividend of $0.132 per common share for the fourth quarter of 2018 was 10% higher compared to the fourth quarter of 2017.

Management Commentary and Outlook

“Solid fourth quarter performance capped off an outstanding year,” said Brad Childers, Archrock’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We grew our operating horsepower by 65,000, delivered strong operational execution and benefited from pricing momentum, which contributed to attractive adjusted EBITDA growth over last year’s fourth quarter. Compression market fundamentals during the fourth quarter remained constructive, driving strong growth across our operational footprint.”

“2018 was an exciting and successful year,” continued Childers. “We completed the merger with Archrock Partners, delivered 277,000 operating horsepower growth, achieved strong safety performance, maintained a high utilization rate on our fleet, increased adjusted EBITDA by 26% and advanced our leverage reduction.”

“U.S. natural gas production is expected to continue to grow in 2019 and beyond, driven by strong secular market demand in the U.S. and globally, especially in the form of LNG. This increased demand for natural gas is being readily met from the abundant and affordable U.S. supply from cost effective dry natural gas plays and associated gas produced with oil in several of Archrock’s key markets, including the Permian, Niobrara and SCOOP/STACK.”

“Driven by strong market fundamentals, the outlook for natural gas production growth in 2019 is translating directly into significant customer commitments, positioning Archrock for another year of strategically managed growth. We remain committed to our capital allocation policy of selectively investing in high-return assets and decreasing leverage below 4.0x in 2020, enabling us to increase our dividend 10% to 15% annually through 2020,” concluded Childers.

Contract Operations

For the fourth quarter of 2018, contract operations segment revenue totaled $176.4 million, reflecting an increase of 13% compared to $156.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Gross margin was $104.8 million, up $13.2 million or 14% from the fourth quarter of 2017, reflecting a gross margin percentage of 59.4% compared to 58.6% in the prior year quarter. Total operating horsepower at the end of the fourth quarter of 2018 was 3.5 million, up from 3.3 million at the end of the prior year quarter, reflecting a 9% increase. Utilization at the end of the fourth quarter of 2018 was 89.1% compared to 84.6% at the end of the fourth quarter of 2017.

Gross margin was $8.6 million, essentially unchanged from the fourth quarter of 2017, reflecting a gross margin percentage of 15.1% and down compared to 16.2% in the prior year quarter as a result of higher costs in the fourth quarter of 2018.

2019 Annual Guidance

Archrock is providing annual guidance as follows (in thousands, except percentages and ratios):

Contract operations revenue $730,000  $760,000 
Contract operations gross margin percentage 60% 62%
Aftermarket services revenue $225,000  $255,000 
Aftermarket services gross margin percentage 17% 19%
     
Selling, general and administrative $118,000  $124,000

Growth capital expenditures $250,000  $300,000 
Maintenance capital expenditures 57,000  63,000 
Other capital expenditures 43,000  47,000 
     
Dividend growth 10-15% annually through 2020
Leverage Below 4.0x in 2020
Cash available for dividend coverage Above 2.0x through 2020

(1) 2019 annual guidance for net income does not include the impact 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 $(13.2) million and $2.6 million for the years ended 2018 and 2017, respectively.

(1) Basic and diluted net income attributable to Archrock common stockholders per common share was computed using the two-class method to determine the net income per share for each class of common stock and participating security (restricted stock and stock-settled restricted stock units that have nonforfeitable rights to receive dividends or dividend equivalents) according to dividends declared and participation rights in undistributed earnings. Accordingly, we have excluded net income attributable to participating securities from our calculation of basic and diluted net income attributable to Archrock common stockholders per common share.

(1) Includes charges associated with the relocation of our corporate headquarters in the third quarter of 2017, which are included in selling, general and administrative in our consolidated statement of operations.
(2) Represents net expense incurred pursuant to indemnification provisions of our separation and distribution and tax matters agreements with Exterran Corporation.
(3) Management believes adjusted EBITDA and gross margin provide useful information to investors because these non-GAAP measures, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provide a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses these non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures to review current period operating performance, comparability measures and performance measures for period-to-period comparisons.

(1) 2019 annual guidance for net income does not include the impact 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 $(13.2) million and $2.6 million for the years ended 2018 and 2017, respectively.
