Superior Drilling Products, Inc. (NYSE American: SDPI) (“SDP” or the “Company”), a designer and manufacturer of drilling tool technologies, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter of 2021 ended December 31, 2021.

Troy Meier, Chairman and CEO, commented, “We had exceptional growth in demand for our Drill-N-Ream® wellbore conditioning tool (“DNR”) as the number of operators and rigs using the tool continues to grow. It would appear as well that we are now reaching a point where tool fleet replacement is required as tool sales in the quarter picked up measurably.”

He added, “We have been building out our team and focused on training to be able to deliver to demand in 2022. We are working hard to address the challenges of talent management and retention, stay ahead of supply chain constraints and meet our customers’ requirements as demand continues to expand.”

Fourth Quarter 2021 Review ($ in thousands, except per share amounts) (See at “Definitions” the composition of product/service revenue categories.)

Significant growth in revenue year-over-year reflected a strong recovery in the oil & gas industry especially in North America, growing market penetration of the Company’s DNR in North America and the related expanded demand for new drilling tools.

For the fourth quarter 2021, approximately 90% of revenue was from North America and approximately 10% from international markets, all within the Middle East. Revenue in North America grew year-over-year from increased tool revenue and strong growth in Contract Services.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense and unusual items. See the attached tables for important disclosures regarding SDP’s use of Adjusted EBITDA, as well as a reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA.

Gross margin was impacted by operating inefficiencies associated with labor shortages and supply chain constraints. Selling, general & administrative expenses were higher as a result of labor constraints and the inflationary impact of wages.

Net income of $645 thousand, or $0.02 per diluted share was primarily due to the recovery of principal and interest of a related party note receivable in the fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA(1) improved year-over-year to $827 thousand on higher net income.

The Company believes that when used in conjunction with measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure, helps in the understanding of its operating performance.

Revenue of $13.3 million grew 27% over the prior year as a result of an improved market combined with strong demand for the Company’s products and services. Revenue in North America was up 35% which more than offset a 8.7% decline in international markets as the Middle East continued to address the global pandemic with containment restrictions.

Tool revenue was $9.2 million, up 31%, or $2.2 million, from the prior-year period driven by demand for the DNR, both new tools as well as repair and royalty revenue from DNR activity on more rigs throughout the year. Contract Services revenue increased approximately $667 thousand, or 19%, to $4.1 million for the year as the Company refurbished more tools for its legacy customer.

Operating expenses in 2021 were down $371 thousand, or 3%, compared with 2020. This was primarily as a result of lower amortization expense and the reorganization of the Company’s international business to improve profitability.

Other income in 2021 included $707 thousand for recovery of a related party note receivable, whereas 2020 benefitted from the $933 thousand in forgiveness on SBA loans.

The net loss in 2021 was $530 thousand, or ($0.02) per diluted share, improved over a net loss of $3.4 million, ($0.13) per diluted share in 2020.

Adjusted EBTIDA was $2.6 million in 2021, or 19.7% of revenue. This was up from an Adjusted loss before tax, interest, depreciation and amortization of $103 thousand in 2020.

Cash at the end of the quarter was $2.8 million, up $861 thousand from the end of 2020 and up $353 thousand from the trailing third quarter. Cash generated by operations for the year was $526 thousand. Long-term debt, including the current portion, at quarter-end was $2.5 million. The final $750 thousand of principal due on the note is payable on October 5, 2022.

During the quarter, the Company completed an equity offering of 1,739,131 shares of common stock at a price of $1.15 per share, which resulted in net proceeds of approximately $1.7 million.
