Dick Alario, Interim CEO of NOW Inc., noted, “The market faces a challenging environment due to steep declines in oil prices, rig counts and worldwide oil demand. Through our financial discipline, we entered this unprecedented period with zero debt, over $200 million in cash and access to ample liquidity under our credit facility. We have accelerated our structural transformation, which includes streamlining our organization and deploying technology to create additional customer value and revenue through our DigitalNOW® investment.

“While the timing of a recovery is uncertain, I am confident DNOW will be a much leaner, transformed company, well-positioned to capitalize on the next market upswing.”

Prior to the earnings conference call a presentation titled “NOW Inc. First Quarter 2020 Key Takeaways” will be available on the Company’s Investor Relations website.

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 income (loss) excluding other costs and (iii) diluted earnings (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 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 included impairment charges, as well as, net separation and transaction-related 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 months ended March 31, 2020 included an expense of $2 million from changes in the valuation allowance recorded against the Company’s deferred tax assets; as well as, $316 million related to the impairment charges of goodwill, intangibles and other assets and $5 million in net separation and transaction-related expenses. The Company has excluded the impact of these items on its valuation allowance in computing net income (loss) excluding other costs.

(5)

Totals may not foot due to rounding.
