Charles Njuguna, Koil Energy’s CEO, commented, “Our top-line results for the first quarter of 2023 are reflective of the positive trends in offshore activity that we are currently experiencing. We remain constructive on our outlook on the energy markets for 2023 and beyond and believe that we are currently in the midst of a ramp up in offshore investment. Participation in this upcycle is essential for our business to achieve a sustained level of growth, so we have been busy with building and maintaining relationships to strengthen our customer base. We are committed to engaging with our customers on a deeper level to better understand their offshore needs, and these efforts have instigated an increased level of bidding requests from our customers. As a result, our project backlog has increased approximately ten percent when compared to this time last year.

“After successfully transitioning the Company’s operations to our newly leased premises in the fourth quarter of 2022, we are excited that our new headquarters will enrich our team’s ability to further support the needs of our clients as well as allow us to expand our core competencies beyond our traditional core products and services.

“As we focus on the growth of our business, managing cash flow and preserving liquidity remains of critical importance. Bidding and project activity remain strong, and we are confident our streamlined operations and continued focus on our core strengths will enable us to be the primary choice for our customers. We also remain cautiously optimistic that we are positioned for further success in the renewable energy segments as the opportunities continue to build.”

Operating Results

Koil Energy’s revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2023 (“Q1 2023”) increased 3 percent to $3.7 million compared to $3.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 (“Q1 2022”), primarily due to heightened offshore project activity led by customer demand for our support services and rental solutions.

Gross profit for Q1 2023 was $1.6 million, or 44 percent of revenues, compared to Q1 2022 gross profit of $1.4 million, or 39 percent of revenues. The increase in gross profit percentage was due to higher revenues and lower rent expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Operating expenses were $1.7 million, or 47 percent of revenues, in Q1 2023 compared to $1.7 million, or 48 percent of revenues, in Q1 2022. Comparatively, there was a slight increase in operating expenses during Q1 2023, which was mainly driven by increased research & development costs.

Due to the factors discussed above, Koil Energy reported a Q1 2023 net loss of $97 thousand, or a $0.01 loss per diluted share, compared to a Q1 2022 net loss of $264 thousand, or $0.02 per diluted share. Per share results for Q1 2023 and Q1 2022 are based on 11.89 million and 12.16 million weighted average shares outstanding, respectively.

Koil Energy reported a modified EBITDA of $90 thousand in Q1 2023 compared to a negative modified EBITDA of $57 thousand in Q1 2022. The comparative increase in modified EBITDA was primarily due to the increase in support services revenues and decrease in cost of sales during Q1 2023 as compared to Q1 2022.

Financial Strength

At March 31, 2023, Koil Energy had working capital of $3.9 million, which includes cash of $1.5 million and net receivables of $4.3 million. Total shareholders’ equity was $7.0 million, or approximately $0.59 per common share. Given the Company’s current capital structure, Koil Energy remains in a strong financial position for continued growth.
