Pacific Drilling S.A. (NYSE: PACD) (hereinafter referred to as “Pacific Drilling” or the “Company”) today released its results for the second quarter of 2020. Net loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $ 87.4 million, or $ 1.16 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $ 61.0 million, or $ 0.81 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020.

Pacific Drilling CEO Bernie Wolford commented, “During the second quarter, our crews and executives continued to demonstrate our commitment to safe and efficient operations, including implementing measures to address risks associated with COVID-19 -Transmission, achieving exceptional results for our customers, efficiently maintaining the value of our assets and significantly reducing overheads. ”

Wolford continued, “Although oil prices began to recover in the second quarter, customers have generally scaled back their drilling investments, as evidenced by Equinor’s decision to have the company’s third previously completed well for the Pacific Khamsin and Murphy’s decision to terminate the contract for two wells in Mexico for the Pacific Sharav to terminate. In both cases, our customers chose to pay a cancellation fee instead of running the drill programs. We assume that the current contract for the Pacific Khamsin expires in September 2020. Despite this headwind for 2020, we are actively pursuing contract opportunities and are proud to extend our relationship with Murphy through a new contract for the Pacific Sharav to expand over 10 fixed holes and 5 option holes in the Gulf of Mexico, which we expect to begin in the second quarter of 2021. ”

Mr. Wolford concluded: “Although we currently see more contract opportunities for 2021 compared to 2020, the contract terms remain relatively short on average and we assume that an oversupply of drilling rigs will maintain downward pressure on the daily rates. We have until No debt due in 2023 and cash in excess of $ 252 million as of June 30, 2020. We anticipate that we will have sufficient cash to meet our cash needs for the next 12 months, based on current market conditions and However, regarding our prospect of new orders through 2020 and 2021, we do not believe that our current capital structure will be sustainable. We have engaged financial and legal advisors to help us assess various alternatives to address our longer-term liquidity outlook and capital structure negotiated e include the restructuring of our debt, which is carried out under the protection of Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Act. We are currently in discussions with a group of creditors who are trying to find acceptable terms for a restructuring. Any such arrangement that we may reach could include equating all or certain of the company’s debts, which would expose our common stockholders to the significant risk of losing all of their interests in the company. As we evaluate our strategic alternatives to improve our liquidity outlook and current capital structure, we continue to deliver the safe, efficient and high quality drilling services that PACIFIC DRILLING is known for in our industry. ”

Explanation of the operating and financial results for the second quarter of 2020

Contract drilling income for the second quarter of 2020 was $ 38.9 million and included recoverable income of $ 6.6 million. That compares to contract drilling income for the first quarter of 2020 of $ 89.4 million, including recoverable income of $ 6.4 million. The decline in income was primarily due to the Pacific Sharav and the Pacific Bora signed their contracts in early April and the Pacific Santa Ana April saw a lower force majeure rate and a lower standby rate for second quarter memories.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2020 were $ 61.9 million, including recoverable expenses of $ 4.5 million. By comparison, operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were $ 86.5 million, including recoverable expenses of $ 5.8 million. The decrease in operating expenses is due to the decrease in the cost of the assets transitioning from operating to standby and idle states.

Selling overheads for the second quarter of 2020 were $ 10.9 million, compared to $ 9.6 million for the first quarter of 2020. The increase is due to consulting fees of $ 2.6 million and severance pay costs of $ 0.3 million in the second quarter of 2020. Excluding the impact of these costs, the decrease in general and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2020 resulted from a staff reduction implemented in May 2020 and a reduction in salaries for all employees.

Adjusted EBITDA(a) for the second quarter of 2020 was $ (31.1) million, compared to $ (1.8) million for the first quarter of 2020.

Capital expenditures were $ 1.0 million in the second quarter of 2020 compared to $ 5.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease was due to the postponement or cancellation of oil rig projects, which resulted in activity in the second quarter ending up in the required sustained capital expenditure remained limited.

Abgleichung von EBITDA und bereinigtem EBITDA

EBITDA wird als Erträge vor Zinsen, Steuern und Abschreibungen definiert. Beginnend mit dem vierten Quartal 2019 hat das Management das EBITDA für die laufende und die Vergleichsperiode neu definiert, um die Amortisierung von abgegrenzten Einnahmen und abgegrenzten Kosten auszuschließen, die in der Betriebsrechnung in den Einnahmen aus Vertragsbohrungen bzw. in den Betriebsausgaben enthalten sind. Das Management ist der Ansicht, dass ein solches Maß des EBITDA mit der herkömmlichen Definition des EBITDA übereinstimmt, eine größere Transparenz der Kernbetriebsleistung des Unternehmens ermöglicht und mit der historischen Behandlung durch bestimmte andere große Offshore-Bohrunternehmen und Versorgungsschiffseigner übereinstimmt. Das bereinigte EBITDA ist definiert als EBITDA vor Verlust aus nicht konsolidierten Tochterunternehmen und Sanierungsposten. EBITDA und bereinigtes EBITDA stellen keine Alternativen zu Nettogewinn, Betriebsergebnis, Cashflow aus laufender Geschäftstätigkeit oder anderen Kennzahlen der finanziellen Leistung dar, die gemäß den US-amerikanischen Grundsätzen ordnungsgemäßer Buchführung (“GAAP”) ausgewiesen werden, und sind nicht als solche auszulegen. Zudem sind unsere Berechnungen von EBITDA und bereinigtem EBITDA möglicherweise nicht mit den von anderen Unternehmen bilanzierten Werten vergleichbar. EBITDA und bereinigtes EBITDA sind hier enthalten, weil sie von der Geschäftsleitung zur Bemessung der operativen Tätigkeiten des Unternehmens genutzt werden. Die Geschäftsleitung ist der Ansicht, dass EBITDA und bereinigtes EBITDA den Anlegern nützliche Informationen zur betrieblichen Leistung des Unternehmens bieten.
