HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 3, 2016-- NOW Inc. (NYSE: DNOW) reported for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016 a net loss of $44 million, or $(0.40) per fully diluted share, compared to net loss of $19 million, or $(0.18) per fully diluted share in the same period of 2015. Other costs had a net zero impact on net loss and diluted earnings per share for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Other costs in the second quarter of 2016 included $3 million in acquisition-related and severance charges and a net $3 million after-tax benefit related to a deferred tax asset valuation allowance release.

The Company’s revenues for the second quarter of 2016 were $501 million, a decrease of nine percent from the first quarter of 2016.

Cash flows from operating activities were $66 million for the second quarter of 2016 compared to $94 million for the same period of 2015.

On June 1, 2016 the Company completed its acquisition of Power Service, a distributor of original equipment manufacturer parts including pumps, generator sets, air compressors and blowers and a fabricator of custom lease automatic custody transfer (LACT) units, vapor recovery units, ASME code vessels, water production skids and turnkey tank battery solutions serving the upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas markets.

Robert Workman, President and CEO of NOW Inc., remarked “Oil prices surged in the second quarter compared to the first, generating an uptick in rig activity during the back half of the quarter. However, the market remains uncertain as oil prices have since retreated back into the $40 range. Despite these mixed signals, we remain focused on removing costs from our customers’ supply chain, tightly managing our healthy balance sheet and diligently integrating recent acquisitions.”

United States

Second quarter revenues for the United States were $337 million, down six percent from the first quarter of 2016, or down 8 percent when ignoring the favorable impact of acquisitions, amid 24 percent fewer rigs being active. Revenues decreased 32 percent from the second quarter of 2015, or 41 percent when excluding acquisitions, significantly outpacing the United States rig count decline of 54 percent in the same period.

Canada

Canada revenues were $55 million, down 13 percent compared to the first quarter of 2016 and down 38 percent from the second quarter of 2015. These declines were driven by historically low levels of operating activity, where Canada rig counts dropped 70 percent sequentially and 51 percent from the second quarter of 2015.

International

International operations generated second quarter revenues of $109 million, down 15 percent from the first quarter of 2016 and down 34 percent from the second quarter of 2015, versus international rig count declines of seven percent and 19 percent, respectively. The year over year revenues contributed from acquisitions, approximately $20 million, were outweighed by the continued deterioration in offshore market activity and a sustained customer focus on cannibalizing excess inventory.

The Company has scheduled a conference call for August 3, 2016, at 8:00 a.m. Central Time to discuss second quarter 2016 results. The call will be broadcast through the Investor Relations link on NOW Inc.’s web site at www.distributionnow.com, on a listen-only basis.

(1) In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we disclose various non-GAAP financial measures in our quarterly earnings press releases and other public disclosures. The non-GAAP financial measures include: (i) earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) excluding other costs, (ii) net loss excluding other costs and (iii) diluted loss per share excluding other costs. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain other costs and therefore has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure is included in the schedules herein.

(2) Other costs primarily includes the transaction costs associated with acquisitions, including the cost of inventory that was stepped up to fair value during purchase accounting related to acquisitions, and severance expenses which are included in operating loss.

(3) EBITDA % excluding other costs is defined as EBITDA excluding other costs divided by Revenue.

(4) Other costs, net of tax, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 included $3 million benefit, $20 million expense, nil and nil, respectively, for deferred tax asset valuation allowance; as well as, $3 million, $5 million, $2 million and $9 million, after tax, respectively, in transaction costs associated with acquisitions, including the cost of inventory that was stepped up to fair value during purchase accounting related to acquisitions, and severance expenses which are included in operating loss. Other costs, net of tax, was less than $1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

(5) Per share amounts may not foot due to rounding.
