CWC Well Services Corp. Releases Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results and Declares Quarterly Dividend

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- CWC Well Services Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CWC)("CWC" or the "Company") is pleased to release its operational and financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. The Interim Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 are filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Highlights for Q3 2012 and YTD 2012


--  Revenue for the nine month period of 2012 was $82.9 million, an increase
    of 13% over the same period of 2011. The third quarter of 2012 revenue
    decreased 14% to $26.9 million compared to the same quarter of 2011; 
--  EBITDAS for the nine month period of 2012 is $18.0 million, an increase
    of 1% compared to the same period of 2011. EBITDAS for the third quarter
    of 2012 was $6.3 million, decreasing from $8.1 million in the same
    period of 2011; 
--  Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $3.1
    million, a decrease of 32% compared to the same period of 2011 due
    primarily to a charge for deferred income tax expense in 2012 with no
    similar expense in 2011. The third quarter of 2012 net income decreased
    to $1.3 million compared to $3.2 million for the same quarter of 2011; 
--  In Q1 of 2012 the Board of Directors initiated a quarterly dividend
    policy of $0.01625 per common share to shareholders resulting in an
    annualized dividend of $0.065 per common share. To date the Company has
    declared and paid dividends totaling $7.7 million or $0.04875 per share.
    The declaration of dividends reflects CWC's positive view of the
    sustainability of its cash flows and earnings in the future and the
    Company's ability to provide a meaningful return on investment for its
    shareholders without impacting the Company's ability to pursue long-term
    growth opportunities; 
--  The Company continues to grow its well servicing fleet with the addition
    of a new double service rig and a new slant service rig which were both
    put into service in Q2 2012. Recertification of an existing single
    service rig was also completed in November 2012 and put into service.
    CWC expects to complete the building of two more service rigs by the end
    of 2012 increasing the active service rig count to 68 service rigs by
    year end. In addition, a new Class III, 2" coil tubing unit is scheduled
    to be put into service in Q1 2013 increasing the fleet to 9 coil tubing
    units. CWC continues to upgrade and replace various support equipment to
    ensure CWC's fleet remains among the newest and most technologically
    advanced in the industry.

Q3 2012 Overview

Q3 2012 started out with a seasonal pickup in activity in July 2012. In August and September 2012, these activity levels, which would normally increase throughout the quarter, showed a slight decrease throughout the latter part of Q3 2012 reflecting a less urgent desire for completions oriented work by our E&P customers and a general overall slowdown in drilling activities throughout the oilfield services sector. Drilling rig activity was down nearly 30% in Q3 2012 compared to Q3 2011. Service rig activity was less affected with the CAODC reporting activity was down approximately 8% in Q3 2012 compared to Q3 2011. Third quarter results reflect the decline in producer demand, a slower seasonal recovery and continued reductions in natural gas and liquids rich gas activities. Oil prices have remained relatively flat year-over-year, however, customers have moderated their spending in the second half of 2012 in an effort to operate within their stated 2012 budgets due to uncertainty over commodity price forecasts driven in part by global economic uncertainty. Our service rig results were only marginally impacted during Q3 2012 by the reduction in spending as they are more leveraged to oil-related activities whereas our snubbing units were significantly affected by its inherent exposure to natural gas related activities. The decrease in revenue and EBITDAS were primarily affected by the sale of our nitrogen assets in December 2011 which contributed to the Q3 2011 results without a similar contribution in Q3 2012. The nitrogen assets account for 47% of the revenue decrease in Q3 2012 and 48% of the EBITDAS decrease with snubbing accounting for 27% of the revenue decrease and 43% of the EBITDAS decrease.

Year-to-date revenue is up 13% due primarily to the addition of 22 service rigs from the Trinidad Well Servicing ("TWS") acquisition in June 2011 which contributed to a 26% increase in revenue in the Well Servicing segment. This overall revenue increase is offset by the sale in December 2011 of our nitrogen assets in our Other Oilfield Services segment that no longer contribute to revenue in 2012. In addition declines in snubbing activity in 2012 contributed to the 47% decrease in year-to-date revenue in the Other Oilfield Services segment. The nitrogen assets in 2011 contributed $5.0 million in year-to- date revenue. While revenue growth has increased 13%, EBITDAS has only increased 1% due primarily to the lower activity levels in snubbing in 2012 compared to 2011 and the higher margin nitrogen business which did not contribute to EBITDAS in 2012.

Oil-related work, which is more maintenance and service oriented, is where the vast majority of the service rig hours were achieved and is expected to continue in 2012 and beyond. CWC continues to minimize its exposure to depressed natural gas prices through its focus on oil. The slowdown in drilling activity for the second half of 2012 has inevitably resulted in a lag on completion oriented work. In anticipation of this slowdown, CWC started positioning itself to do more production maintenance, workover and abandonment services to offset the anticipated decline in completion work for its service rigs.

Revenue

Total revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 decreased 14% and increased 13% respectively year-over-year. Q3 2012 activity was affected by lower spending and a lack of urgency by customers on programs overall for both new well completions and production and maintenance related activities compared to that of 2011. The year-to-date increase is primarily due to the 22 service rigs acquired from TWS in the second quarter of 2011. Revenue in the third quarter was down primarily as a result of low utilization on coil tubing and snubbing assets and was further affected by no revenue contributions from nitrogen assets in 2012 as these assets were sold in December 2011.

CWC continues to focus on providing services to better capitalized and financed senior and intermediate exploration and production ("E&P") companies. In the third quarter of 2012, over 64% of our revenue was derived from our top ten customers all of whom are large or intermediate E&P companies. The Company also focuses on customers with higher exposure to oil opportunities instead of dry natural gas plays given the strong pricing for oil compared to that of dry natural gas.

EBITDAS

EBITDAS for the third quarter of 2012 was $6.3 million (24% of revenue) compared to $8.1 million (26% of revenue) in the third quarter of 2011, a decline of $1.8 million or 22%. Year-to-date, EBITDAS was $18.0 million (22% of revenue) versus $17.9 million (24% of revenue). EBITDAS was lower in the current year as a result of the sale of the nitrogen assets in Dec 2011 which contributed $0.9 million and $1.6 million for the three and nine month periods of 2011 respectively. Further impacts were from lower activity levels, particularly in snubbing, as a result of reduced producer spending in response to lower commodity prices driven by uncertain macroeconomic conditions. Also impacting year-to-date EBITDAS was fixed salary costs for field employees in the coil tubing division when activity did not fully materialize and recertification costs being incurred in the second quarter ahead of planned timing.

Net Income

Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $1.3 million compared to $3.2 million for the third quarter of 2011; a decline of $1.9 million or 60%, primarily impacted by the sale of nitrogen assets in December 2011 and a decline in activity levels in Q3 2012. Net income on a year-to-date basis compared to 2011 declined 32% due primarily to a charge for deferred income tax expense in 2012 with no similar expense in 2011. Management remains focused on driving higher levels of profitability by capitalizing on its young and technologically advanced equipment fleet and high quality labour force.

Outlook

Approximately 90% of CWC's work is currently derived from oil-related activities. Despite oil prices remaining at healthy levels averaging $92.26 per barrel for West Texas Intermediate in Q3 2012 compared to $89.59 per barrel in Q3 2011, the urgency from our exploration and production ("E&P") customers to get wells drilled and completed in Q3 2012 subsided compared to Q3 2011. Many global economic factors such as the high levels of European government debt, slowdown in China's GDP growth, uncertainty over the U.S. fiscal cliff combined with the potential results of the U.S. election, and the likelihood of Keystone XL and Northern Gateway pipelines being built on a timely basis if at all, likely contributed to the decision by our E&P customers to slowdown the pace of activity levels in Q3 2012. The result for the overall oilfield services industry was lower utilization levels in Q3 2012 compared to Q3 2011 as reflected in CWC's service rig utilization rate of 52% in Q3 2012 compared to Q3 2011 of 58%. Normally, activity levels would start to increase in Q4 and continue throughout the winter months. However, so far this quarter, an increase in Q4 2012 activity level above those of Q3 2012 appears to be delayed until later in the winter months. While there is a delay in spending by our E&P customers, every indication they have given CWC suggests a return to higher activity levels in Q1 2013. Supporting this thesis is the record number of oil well licenses issued in October 2012 of 1,003 wells compared to 943 wells in October 2011 and 780 wells in September 2012 in Western Canada. Year-to-date ended October 31, 2012 8,779 oil well permits were approved in Western Canada resulting in the second highest oil well permits issued in the last 10 years according to Daily Oil Bulletin.

During Q3 2012, CWC shifted its sales and operations focus towards maintenance, workover and abandonment activity as opposed to completions oriented work in its Service Rig division. CWC is not currently experiencing any pricing pressure in its Service Rigs division from its E&P customers nor do we expect to incur any material reductions to our hourly rates with an average rate of $755 per hour year-to-date in 2012 (2011 - $727 per hour). CWC also took the opportunity, during a slower Q3 2012, to build a better quality leadership and safety team in several areas of its Service Rig, Coil Tubing and Snubbing divisions, which management believes will have a positive impact in achieving future incremental revenue and cash flow. CWC intends to continue providing best-in-class services to our E&P customers through "Quality People Delivering Quality Service" with the most relevant, youngest and advanced fleet of equipment. In Q4 2012, CWC expects to take delivery of three additional service rigs and have two more service rigs, which were down for upgrades in Q3 2012, back in service. By year end 2012, CWC should have a total active service rig fleet of 68. We will continue to evaluate opportunities to grow the Well Servicing business segment through a disciplined approach in 2013, which may include the addition of new slant service rigs to service the growing number of steam assisted gravity drainage ("SAGD") wells.

Quarterly Dividend

The Company is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.01625 per common share. The dividend will be paid on January 15, 2013 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2012. The ex-dividend date is December 27, 2012. This dividend is an eligible dividend for Canadian income tax purposes.

The declaration of dividends is determined on a quarter-by-quarter basis by the Board of Directors and reflects CWC's positive view on the sustainability of its cash flow and earnings in the future.

Notes 1 to 4 - Please refer to the Notes to Financial Highlights at the end 
of this release.                                                            

About CWC Well Services Corp.

CWC Well Services Corp. is a premier well servicing company operating in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin with a complementary suite of oilfield services including service rigs, coil tubing, snubbing and well testing. The Company's corporate office is located in Calgary, Alberta, with operational locations in Red Deer, Provost, Lloydminster, Brooks, and Grande Prairie, Alberta and Weyburn, Saskatchewan.

Notes to Financial Highlights


1.  EBITDAS (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization,
    gain/loss on disposal of asset, unrealized gain/loss on marketable
    securities, finance costs and stock based compensation) is not a
    recognized measure under IFRS. Management believes that in addition to
    net earnings, EBITDAS is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an
    indication of the Company's ability to generate cash flow in order to
    fund working capital, service debt, pay current income taxes, and fund
    capital programs. Investors should be cautioned, however, that EBITDAS
    should not be construed as an alternative to net income (loss) and
    comprehensive income (loss) determined in accordance with IFRS as an
    indicator of the Company's performance. CWC's method of calculating
    EBITDAS may differ from other entities and accordingly, EBITDAS may not
    be comparable to measures used by other entities. For a reconciliation
    of EBITDAS to net income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss). 
2.  Funds from (used in) operations and funds from (used in) operations per
    share are not recognized measures under IFRS. Management believes that
    in addition to cash flow from operations, funds from (used in)
    operations is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication
    of the cash flow generated by the Company's principal business
    activities prior to consideration of changes in working capital.
    Investors should be cautioned, however, that funds from (used in)
    operations should not be construed as an alternative to cash flow from
    (used in) operations determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator
    of the Company's performance. CWC's method of calculating funds from
    (used in) operations may differ from other entities and accordingly,
    funds from (used in) operations may not be comparable to measures used
    by other entities. Funds from (used in) operations is equal to cash flow
    from (used in) operations before changes in non-cash working capital
    items related to operations, interest and income taxes paid, financing
    costs, and income tax expense. 
3.  Gross margin is calculated from the statement of comprehensive income
    (loss) as revenue less direct operating expenses and is used to assist
    management and investors in assessing the Company's financial results
    from operations excluding fixed overhead costs. Gross margin is a non-
    IFRS measure and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by
    IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures provided by other
    companies. 
4.  Working capital (excluding debt) is calculated based on current assets
    less current liabilities excluding the current portion of long-term
    debt. Working capital is used to assist management and investors in
    assessing the Company's liquidity and its' ability to generated funds.
    Working capital (excluding debt) does not have any meaning prescribed
    under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures provided by
    other companies.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
