THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChampionX Corporation (NASDAQ: CHX) (“ChampionX” or the “Company”) today announced third quarter of 2022 results. Revenue was $1.0 billion, net income attributable to ChampionX was $23.1 million, and adjusted EBITDA was $166.1 million. Income before income taxes margin was 3.7% and adjusted EBITDA margin was 16.3%. Cash from operating activities was $187.2 million and free cash flow was $167.4 million.

CEO Commentary

“The third quarter reflected the building strong momentum for ChampionX as we delivered strong performance on all key metrics, including revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA margin expansion, free cash flow generation, and capital returned to our shareholders. This favorable outcome was the direct result of our employees around the world remaining laser-focused on serving our customers well, and I am grateful to them for their dedication to our corporate purpose of improving lives,” ChampionX’s President and Chief Executive Officer Sivasankaran “Soma” Somasundaram said.

“During the third quarter of 2022, we delivered robust top-line growth. We generated revenue of $1.0 billion, which increased 25% year-over-year, and 10% sequentially, marking the sixth consecutive quarter in which we have delivered sequential revenue improvement. International revenues grew 19% sequentially and each of our three largest segments contributed to the growth for the third consecutive quarter. Among our segments, Production Chemical Technologies led the charge with 17% sequential growth as pricing, activity, and share gains increased. We continue to consistently demonstrate the strong organic growth potential of our global business. We generated adjusted EBITDA of $166 million, which increased 34% year-over-year, and 20% sequentially. Our income before income taxes margin improved by 72 basis points sequentially, and our adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by approximately 140 basis points sequentially in the third quarter, driven by higher sales volumes and increasing pricing realization and we remain on track to deliver our targeted exit 2022 adjusted EBITDA margin rate of 18%. We continue to focus and execute on levers we control to deliver solid operational improvements.

“We generated free cash flow of $167 million during the third quarter, which represented 101% of our adjusted EBITDA for the period. Through our regular cash dividend of $15 million and $80 million of ChampionX share repurchases, we demonstrated our commitment to investors as we returned 57% of our free cash flow in the third quarter to our shareholders. Going forward, we intend to return at least 60% of free cash flow to shareholders through-the-cycle. Consistent with this commitment, we announced today that our Board of Directors approved an increase to our share repurchase program, which authorizes ChampionX to repurchase up to $750 million of its outstanding common stock, which is an increase of $500 million to the original amount of the program previously announced earlier this year. Given the strong free cash flow generation profile of our portfolio, we feel confident that we can continue to invest in our business to support strong organic growth, make strategic technology investments and meet our capital return commitments. We expect strong free cash flow again in the fourth quarter, which will enable us to further return capital to shareholders by continuing to execute on our share repurchase program. We also maintain a strong balance sheet and robust liquidity, ending the third quarter with $811 million of liquidity, including $187 million of cash and $623 million of available capacity on our revolving credit facility.

“As we look to the fourth quarter, we see activity improving in international markets. We expect normal seasonality in our North American businesses into the year-end holidays, along with lower revenue in Reservoir Chemical Technologies due to having exited certain product lines as part of the restructuring efforts. We expect continued price increase realization, driving sequential adjusted EBITDA margin improvement. On a consolidated basis, in the fourth quarter, we expect revenue to be between $985 million and $1.015 billion. We expect adjusted EBITDA of $176 million to $184 million.

“We continue to see constructive demand tailwinds in our businesses that support a favorable multi-year outlook for our sector, and we are confident that we will continue to deliver solid bottom-line growth, adjusted EBITDA margin expansion and strong cash generation as this energy up-cycle progresses. We remain committed to creating value for our shareholders through a disciplined capital allocation framework, which includes high-return organic investment and returning cash to shareholders. Our differentiated technology and innovation capabilities uniquely position ChampionX to help our customers maximize the value of their producing assets in sustainable and cost-effective ways, and I am thankful to lead such a talented and motivated team.”

Production Chemical Technologies

Production Chemical Technologies revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $643.6 million, an increase of $91.2 million, or 17%, sequentially, due to higher volumes both in North America and internationally, and increased global pricing.

Segment operating profit was $86.6 million and adjusted segment EBITDA was $102.8 million. Segment operating profit margin was 13.5%, an increase of 883 basis points, sequentially, and adjusted segment EBITDA margin was 16.0%, an increase of 182 basis points, sequentially. The increase in segment operating profit margin reflects a $22.9 million charge in the second quarter of 2022 to reduce the carrying value of the Chemical Technologies Russia Business to its estimated fair value. The increase in adjusted segment EBITDA margin was driven by higher pricing and sales volumes.

Production & Automation Technologies

Production & Automation Technologies revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $247.7 million, an increase of $5.3 million, or 2%, sequentially, due to higher demand for our shorter-cycle North American land-oriented product lines, and price increases.

Revenue from digital products was $49.8 million in the third quarter of 2022, unchanged sequentially, and up 20% year-over-year.

Segment operating profit was $22.5 million and adjusted segment EBITDA was $52.1 million. Segment operating profit margin was 9.1%, a decrease of 68 basis points, sequentially, and adjusted segment EBITDA margin was 21.0%, an increase of 101 basis points, sequentially. The increase in adjusted EBITDA margin was driven by higher pricing and sales volumes.

Drilling Technologies

Drilling Technologies revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was $61.0 million, an increase of $3.1 million, or 5%, sequentially, primarily driven by increased sales volumes of our diamond cutters and diamond bearings products.

Segment operating profit was $14.9 million and adjusted segment EBITDA was $16.5 million. Segment operating profit margin was 24.4%, a decrease of 163 basis points, sequentially, and adjusted segment EBITDA margin was 27.1%, a decrease of 243 basis points, sequentially, in each case due to product mix and costs associated with serving customers.

Reservoir Chemical Technologies

Reservoir Chemical Technologies revenue in the third quarter 2022 was $35.5 million, a decrease of $8.6 million, or 20%, sequentially due to exiting certain product lines to improve the overall profitability of this business.

Segment operating loss was $61.7 million, a decrease of $53.6 million, primarily due to approximately $63.5 million in restructuring charges incurred during the third quarter of 2022 as we exited certain product lines to improve the overall profitability of this business. Adjusted segment EBITDA was $2.6 million.

Share Repurchase Program

ChampionX announces that the Board of Directors approved an increase to its share repurchase program (the “Share Repurchase Program”). Pursuant to such increase, ChampionX is authorized to repurchase up to $750 million of its outstanding common stock, which is an increase of $500 million to the original amount of the Share Repurchase Program previously announced on March 7, 2022. The increased share repurchase authority is effective immediately. ChampionX repurchased $80 million of its outstanding common stock during the third quarter of 2022, with a total of $100 million repurchased under the Share Repurchase Program this year.

Repurchases under the Share Repurchase Program may be made, from time to time, in amounts and at prices ChampionX deems appropriate and will be subject to a variety of factors, including the availability of excess free cash, the market price of the Company’s common stock, general market and economic conditions, applicable requirements, and other business conditions. The Share Repurchase Program may be suspended, modified or discontinued at any time without prior notice.

Q3 2022 Other Business Highlights

  • In our Production & Automation Technologies business, our UNBRIDLED ESP systems’ HIGH RISETM series pumps were awarded Best Production Technology at the World Oil awards. HIGH RISETM series electric submersible pumps are specifically designed and manufactured to handle the dynamic production rates and challenging downhole conditions common to unconventional wells.

  • Production Chemical Technologies recognized the first commercial sale of extended release (ER) products based on nano technology that was added to the portfolio through the recent acquisition of Tomson Technologies LLC and Group 2 Technologies LLC. We see a solid sales pipeline of opportunities in target markets continuing to build. Currently, ER scale inhibitors are available for sale, with additional ER technologies coming in 2023. This new platform helps reduce carbon footprint and operational expense, while accelerating producers’ returns and cash flow.

  • Production Chemical Technologies has been supporting one of Latin America’s largest midstream operators in their effort to expand capacity through a 400-mile pipeline. The challenge was to improve the capacity, efficiency, and reliability of transporting incremental production of export oil from new unconventional and conventional fields to markets. ChampionX successfully implemented a program to improve pipeline pumping capacity by approximately 30%. Production Chemical Technologies, in close coordination with the midstream and oilfield operators, continues to develop and implement solutions to sustain quality of export crude oil and improve flow through existing pipelines.

  • Production & Automation Technologies commercialized the SmartSpinTM wireless rod rotator sensor to quickly detect rod rotator malfunctions and avoid premature equipment failures, excess costs, and downtime, extending the run life of rod lift systems. Initial field trials have proven the value and secured customer commitments.

  • Production & Automation Technologies released a new chemical optimization module in its XSPOCTM production optimization software. This new feature enables operators’ remote visibility and autonomous control of their chemical injection programs to ensure proper treatment and reduce related equipment failures.

  • Production & Automation Technologies Middle East Artificial Lift Systems (ALS) recorded consulting wins in multiple countries in the region related to its SmartenTM production optimization hardware and software solutions.

  • Production & Automation Technologies secured three additional ESP automation solutions wins in Latin America, while exceeding two years of successful run life on initial ESP system solution installation.

About Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), this news release presents non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted segment EBITDA, adjusted segment EBITDA margin, adjusted net income attributable to ChampionX and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to ChampionX, provide useful information to investors regarding the Company’s financial condition and results of operations because they reflect the core operating results of our businesses and help facilitate comparisons of operating performance across periods. In addition, free cash flow, free cash flow to adjusted EBITDA ratio, and free cash flow to revenue ratio provide useful information to investors because they reflect the core operating results of our businesses and help facilitate comparisons of operating performance across periods. In addition, these measures are used by management to measure our ability to generate positive cash flow for debt reduction and to support our strategic objectives. Although management believes the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures are good tools for internal use and the investment community in evaluating ChampionX’s overall financial performance, the foregoing non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included in the accompanying financial tables.

This press release contains certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA. The Company has not provided projected net income attributable to ChampionX or a reconciliation of projected adjusted EBITDA. Management cannot predict with a reasonable degree of accuracy certain of the necessary components of net income attributable to ChampionX, such as depreciation and amortization expense. As such, a reconciliation of projected adjusted EBITDA to projected net income attributable to ChampionX is not available without unreasonable effort. The actual amount of depreciation and amortization, in particular, and other amounts excluded from adjusted EBITDA will have a significant impact on net income attributable to ChampionX.
