Interim Report Q1 – 2015

Company announcement no.5/2015: Welltec’s revenues reduced in the first quarter of 2015 as market activity contracted sharply in response to the lower oil price. This overshadowed growth in some geomarkets and the decline in revenue was accentuated by strong currency headwinds. EBITDA reduced accordingly, with margin impacted by lower levels of utilization and increased redeployment of fleet and personnel to match the local demand. Proactive cost management and working capital discipline allowed for improved cash flows in the period.

  • Revenues of USD 68 million were 14% lower compared to the same period last year. On an adjusted currency basis revenues were 7% lower.
    • In Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia CIS (EMEAR), revenues decreased by 22% to USD 33 million
    • Revenues in the Americas fell 8% to USD 25 million
    • Asia Pacific revenues were level at USD 10 million
  • Welltec® posted a 27% decrease in EBITDA to USD 26 million, representing an EBITDA margin of 38% (44% in Q1 2014)
  • Operating profit (EBIT) before special items decreased to USD 11 million (USD 17 million in Q1 2014)
  • Currency fluctuations impacted revenue negatively by USD 6 million and EBITDA negatively by USD 1 million
  • Due to the current environment and significant uncertainty prevailing in the market, Welltec® remains unable to offer a qualified guidance for the full year 2015.

 

Jørgen Hallundbæk, CEO: “As expected, the first quarter was tough for the oilfield service industry as many operators scaled back activity and delayed investments, creating a vacuum as they decide on how best to sustain production and adjust operations in the low oil price environment. Our complementary completion and intervention technology provides the perfect solution. Clients that have fully embraced our approach are already benefitting, proactively intervening for barrels at a much lower cost and risk to improve their cash flows and return on investments. The prevailing market is difficult, however, and we will continue to push the adoption of new technology to meet the industry challenges.”

Annual Report 2014

The Board of Directors of Welltec International ApS (“Welltec®”) has today approved the Annual Report for 2014.

Key highlights
Welltec® achieved continued revenue growth and improved earnings in 2014 through the execution of key strategic initiatives planned for the year. Revenues and earnings were in line with full year expectations. Strong activity growth and improvements in the sales mix reflected an increased focus on promoting the strength of our value proposition, although the US dollar appreciation provided a stern headwind. Continued operational success increased activity with our largest clients and underpinned the further expansion of our global footprint.

  • Revenues increased by 7% year on year to USD 345 million with varied regional contributions:
    • In Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia CIS (EMEAR), revenues increased by 13% to USD 191 million
    • Revenues in the Americas grew 9% to USD 122 million
    • Asia Pacific revenues decreased 19% to USD 32 million
  • Welltec® posted a 15% increase in EBITDA to USD 155 million, representing an EBITDA margin of 45% (42% in 2013)
  • Operating profit (EBIT) increased by 12% to USD 76 million
  • Net profit increased by 3% at USD 21 million
  • Due to the current environment and significant market uncertainty looking into the year ahead, Welltec® is not able to offer a qualified guidance for the full year 2015.

 

Jørgen Hallundbæk, CEO: “2014 marked Welltec’s 20th anniversary and two decades of disruptive innovation that has challenged industry practice and provides the answer to many of the questions it is faced with today. Lower lifting costs, higher recovery and improved safety are not a contradiction but a reality with our technology. We are tried, tested and trusted to increase production from existing wells at a substantially lower cost than conventional methods. Our intervention solutions simply allow our clients to do much more with far less. It was also the year where we really announced our arrival in the completions arena with the launch of our transformation center in Esbjerg and a remarkable industry breakthrough in the first deployment of our WAB® as a cementless primary well barrier. Our completion solution’s capabilities have been accelerating and now allow operators to tap into the full value of their wells through a truly adaptable completion that brings fields online faster, for longer and from fewer topside locations. The prevailing market may or may not act as a catalyst but with the production supply from the majority of wells in continual decline; our Flex-Well® approach is the long term solution.”
