Summary of 2016 First Quarter Results
(Comparison with fourth and first quarter of 2015)
|Q1 2016||Q4 2015||Q1 2015|
|Net sales ($ million)||1,257||1,420||(11%)||2,254||(44%)|
|Operating income ($ million)||42||24||73%||379||(89%)|
|Net income (loss) ($ million)||28||(45)||162%||254||(89%)|
|Shareholders' net income (loss) ($ million)||18||(47)||139%||255||(93%)|
|Earnings (loss) per ADS ($)||0.03||(0.08)||139%||0.43||(93%)|
|Earnings (loss) per share ($)||0.02||(0.04)||139%||0.22||(93%)|
|EBITDA* ($ million)||205||223||(8%)||527||(61%)|
|EBITDA margin (% of net sales)||16.3%||15.7%||23.4%|
*EBITDA is defined as operating income plus depreciation, amortization and impairment charges/(reversals). EBITDA includes severance charges of $12 million in Q1 2016, $34 million in Q4 2015 and $16 million in Q1 2015. If these charges were not included EBITDA would have been $218 million, 17.3% of sales in Q1 2016, $257 million, 18.1% of sales in Q4 2015,and $543 million, 24.1% of sales in Q1 2015.
Sales continue to decline sequentially affected by ongoing reductions in drilling activity worldwide and continuing pressure on selling prices, though average selling prices for the quarter were supported by sales of coating services for offshore line pipe projects in sub-Saharan Africa. Our EBITDA margin, however, remained stable sequentially supported by lower selling, general and administrative expenses. Net income returned to a positive level reflecting improved operating results, a positive contribution from non-consolidated companies and a lower tax charge.
Cash provided by operating activities reached $309 million during the quarter and after capital expenditures of $230 million we had positive free cash flow of $79 million. Our net cash position (cash, other current investments and fixed income investments held to maturity less total borrowings) rose to $1.9 billion at March 31, 2016.
Market Background and Outlook
Oil prices have risen from their January lows, but will need to sustain higher levels for some months before oil and gas companies begin to increase investment levels. Meanwhile, drilling activity continues to decline in North America and the rest of the world with rig counts reaching post-war lows in the United States and Canada. With the reduction in activity, OCTG inventory levels in many parts of the world remain high in relation to consumption and we will see a second consecutive year of net destocking.
Over the past month, we have seen a rapid escalation in steel and raw material costs while OCTG pipe prices continue to decline on reduced consumption and pressure from excess inventories on the ground. This is unsustainable and we expect that OCTG prices will adjust to the new raw material and steel cost situation.
In this environment, our sales and margins in the next two quarters will be affected by volume and price declines reflecting lower drilling activity, the completion of deliveries to major South American pipeline projects and the current severe pricing context. By the end of the year, however, we expect sales to begin to recover based on a likely pick up in drilling activity in North America and our current order backlog for our Eastern Hemisphere operations.
We will continue to adjust our operations in these unfavorable conditions, concentrating on cost and cash flow management while strengthening our market position in preparation for an eventual recovery.
Analysis of 2016 First Quarter Results
|Tubes Sales volume
(thousand metric tons)
|Q1 2016||Q4 2015||Q1 2015|
|Tubes||Q1 2016||Q4 2015||Q1 2015|
|(Net sales - $ million)|
|Middle East & Africa||239||199||20%||314||(24%)|
|Far East & Oceania||28||47||(40%)||78||(64%)|
|Total net sales ($ million)||1,130||1,292||(13%)||2,077||(46%)|
|Operating income ($ million) †||21||5||294%||370||(94%)|
|Operating income (% of sales)||1.9%||0.4%||17.8%|
† Tubes Operating income includes severance charges of $11 million in Q1 2016, $28 million in Q4 2015 and $15 million in Q1 2015.
Net sales of tubular products and services decreased 13% sequentially and 46% year on year. In North America sales declined due to lower drilling activity throughout the region and high OCTG inventory levels in relation to consumption. In South America sales declined due to lower drilling activity in Argentina and Colombia. In Europe sales increased sequentially due to a good level of shipments in the North Sea. In the Middle East & Africa our sales increased as we started to see a gradual increase in sales to national oil companies in the Middle East and we had a high level of sales of coating services for offshore line pipe projects in sub-Saharan Africa. In the Far East and Oceania, the decline in sales reflected a steep decline in shipments to Indonesia, Oceania and China.
Operating income from tubular products and services amounted to $21 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $5 million in the previous quarter and $370 million in the first quarter of 2015. The sequential increase is a result of a decline in selling, general and administrative expenses, mainly due to the collection of doubtful accounts provisioned in previous quarters and lower intangibles amortization charges, as in the previous quarter we suffer the full year effect of the reestimation in the useful life of customer relationships in Canada.
|Others||Q1 2016||Q4 2015||Q1 2015|
|Net sales ($ million)||127||128||(1%)||177||(28%)|
|Operating income ($ million)||21||19||11%||9||132%|
|Operating income (% of sales)||16.6%||14.9%||5.1%|
Net sales of other products and services decreased 1% sequentially as a decline in sales of industrial equipment in Brazil and sucker rods was offset by higher sales of pipes for electric conduit in the United States. The operating margin increased following an improvement in the results of our electric conduit business in the United States.
Selling, general and administrative expenses , or SG&A, amounted to $287 million, or 22.8% of net sales, in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $369 million, 26.0% in the previous quarter and $436 million, 19.4% in the first quarter of 2015. Sequentially SG&A declined 22%, due to lower charges for doubtful accounts, as we collected receivables from PDVSA provisioned in previous quarters, and lower amortization of intangibles.
Financial results amounted to a loss of $15 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to a gain of $19 million in the previous quarter and a loss of $1 million in the same period of 2015. Losses in this quarter are mostly due to the impact from the Euro appreciation on Euro denominated intercompany liabilities in subsidiaries with functional currency U.S. dollar and the impact from the Brazilian Real appreciation on hedging instruments. These results are to a large extent offset by changes to our currency translation reserve.
Equity in earnings of non-consolidated companies
generated a gain of $12 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to a loss of $46 million in the previous quarter and a gain of $8 million the first quarter of 2015. These results are mainly derived from our equity investment in Ternium (
Income tax charges totaled $11 million in the first quarter of 2016. During this quarter our tax rate was negatively affected by the effect of the Argentine peso devaluation on the tax base used to calculate deferred taxes at our Argentine subsidiaries which have the U.S. dollar as their functional currency.
Results attributable to non-controlling interests amounted to $10 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $2 million in the previous quarter and losses of $1 million in the first quarter of 2015. Results during this quarter are mainly attributable to our pipe coating subsidiary in Nigeria.
Cash Flow and Liquidity
Net cash provided by operations during the first quarter of 2016 was $309 million, compared to $203 million in the previous quarter and $878 million in the first quarter of 2015.
Capital expenditures amounted to $230 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared to $307 million in the previous quarter and $261 million in the first quarter of 2015.
At the end of the quarter, our net cash position (cash, other current investments and fixed income investments held to maturity less total borrowings) amounted to $1.9 billion, compared to $1.8 billion at the beginning of the year.
