PATTERSON-UTI ENERGY, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. Basis of Consolidation and Presentation

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Patterson-UTI Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. Except for wholly-owned subsidiaries, the Company has no controlling financial interests in any entity which would require consolidation.

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by management of the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes the disclosures included either on the face of the financial statements or herein are sufficient to make the information presented not misleading. In the opinion of management, all recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair statement of the information in conformity with U.S. GAAP have been included. The unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2016, as presented herein, was derived from the audited consolidated balance sheet of the Company, but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. GAAP. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

The U.S. dollar is the functional currency for all of the Company’s operations except for its Canadian operations, which use the Canadian dollar as its functional currency. The effects of exchange rate changes are reflected in accumulated other comprehensive loss, which is a separate component of stockholders’ equity.

In 2017, the Company adopted new guidance for the presentation of deferred tax liabilities and assets and such guidance was applied retrospectively, resulting in the reclassification of $36.4 million from current deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2016.  Of this amount, $4.1 million was reclassified to long-term deferred tax assets and $32.3 million was reclassified to long-term deferred tax liabilities.  During the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company changed its reporting segment presentation, as the Company no longer considers its oil and natural gas exploration and production activities to be significant to an understanding of the Company’s results.  The Company now presents the oil and natural gas exploration and production activities, oilfield rental tool business, pipe handling components and related technology business and Middle East/North Africa activities as “Other,” and “Corporate” reflects only corporate activities.  This change in segment presentation was applied retrospectively to all periods presented herein (See Note 6).

On December 12, 2016, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “merger agreement”) with Seventy Seven Energy Inc. (“SSE”), and the merger closed on April 20, 2017 (the “merger date”).  The Company’s results include the results of operations of SSE since the merger date (See Note 2).  

The Company provides a dual presentation of its net loss per common share in its unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations: basic net loss per common share (“Basic EPS”) and diluted net loss per common share (“Diluted EPS”).

Basic EPS excludes dilution and is computed by first allocating earnings between common stockholders and holders of non-vested shares of restricted stock. Basic EPS is then determined by dividing the earnings attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding non-vested shares of restricted stock.

Diluted EPS is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the dilutive effect of potential common shares, including stock options, non-vested shares of restricted stock and restricted stock units. The dilutive effect of stock options and restricted stock units is determined using the treasury stock method. The dilutive effect of non-vested shares of restricted stock is based on the more dilutive of the treasury stock method or the two-class method, assuming a reallocation of undistributed earnings to common stockholders after considering the dilutive effect of potential common shares other than non-vested shares of restricted stock.

The following table presents information necessary to calculate net loss per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 as well as potentially dilutive securities excluded from the weighted average number of diluted common shares outstanding because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive (in thousands, except per share amounts):

2. Acquisitions

Seventy Seven Energy Inc. (“SSE”)

On April 20, 2017, pursuant to the merger agreement, a subsidiary of the Company was merged with and into SSE, with SSE continuing as the surviving entity and one of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries (the “SSE merger”). Pursuant to the terms of the merger agreement, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of SSE, in exchange for approximately 46.3 million shares of common stock of the Company. Concurrent with the closing of the merger, the Company repaid all of the outstanding debt of SSE totaling $472 million.  Based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on April 20, 2017, the total fair value of the consideration transferred to effect the acquisition of SSE was approximately $1.5 billion.  On April 20, 2017, following the SSE merger, SSE was merged with and into a newly-formed subsidiary of the Company named Seventy Seven Energy LLC (“SSE LLC”), with SSE LLC continuing as the surviving entity and one of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries.

Through the SSE merger, the Company acquired a fleet of 91 drilling rigs, 36 of which the Company considers to be APEX® class rigs. Additionally, through the SSE merger, the Company acquired approximately 500,000 horsepower of modern, efficient fracturing equipment located in Oklahoma and Texas.  The oilfield rentals business acquired through the SSE merger has a modern, well-maintained fleet of premium rental tools, and it provides specialized services for land-based oil and natural gas drilling, completion and workover activities.  

The merger has been accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method.  Under the acquisition method of accounting, the fair value of the consideration transferred is allocated to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and the liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values as of the acquisition date, with the remaining unallocated amount recorded as goodwill.

The total fair value of the consideration transferred was determined as follows (in thousands, except stock price):

The final determination of the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the merger date will be completed as soon as possible, but no later than one year from the merger date (the “measurement period”).  The Company’s preliminary purchase price allocation is subject to revision as additional information about the fair value of assets and liabilities becomes available.  Additional information that existed as of the merger date, but at the time was unknown to the Company, may become known to the Company during the remainder of the measurement period.  The final determination of fair value may differ materially from these preliminary estimates.  The following table represents the preliminary allocation of the total purchase price of SSE to the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed based on the fair value at the merger date, with the excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired recorded as goodwill (in thousands):

The results of SSE’s operations since the merger date are included in our consolidated statement of operations.  The following pro forma condensed combined financial information was derived from the historical financial statements of the Company and SSE and gives effect to the merger as if it had occurred on January 1, 2016.  The below information reflects pro forma adjustments based on available information and certain assumptions the Company believes are reasonable, including (i) adjustments related to the depreciation and amortization of the fair value of acquired intangibles and fixed assets, (ii) removal of the historical interest expense of SSE, (iii) tax benefit of the aforementioned pro forma adjustments, and (iv) adjustments related to the common shares outstanding to reflect the impact of the consideration exchanged in the merger.  Additionally, the pro forma loss for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was adjusted to exclude the Company’s merger and integration-related costs of $9.4 million.   The pro forma loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was adjusted to exclude the Company’s merger and integration-related costs of $65.8 million and SSE’s merger-related costs of $36.7 million.  The pro forma results of operations do not include any cost savings or other synergies that may result from the SSE merger or any estimated costs that have been or will be incurred by the Company to integrate the SSE operations.  The pro forma condensed combined financial information has been included for comparative purposes and is not necessarily indicative of the results that might have actually occurred had the SSE merger taken place on January 1, 2016; furthermore, the financial information is not intended to be a projection of future results.  The following table summarizes selected financial information of the Company on a pro forma basis (in thousands, except per share data):

Multi-Shot, LLC (“MS Directional”)

On October 11, 2017, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding limited liability company interests of Multi-Shot, LLC (“MS Directional”). The aggregate consideration paid by the Company to the sellers consisted of $75 million in cash and 8,798,391 shares of the Company’s common stock.  The purchase price is subject to customary post-closing adjustments relating to cash, net working capital and indebtedness of MS Directional as of the closing.  Based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the closing date of the transaction, the total fair value of the consideration transferred to effect the acquisition of MS Directional was approximately $262 million.  

MS Directional is a leading directional drilling services company in the United States, with operations in most major producing onshore oil and gas basins.  MS Directional provides a comprehensive suite of directional drilling services, including directional drilling, downhole performance motors, directional surveying, measurement while drilling, and wireline steering tools.  

The Company’s consolidated results of operations will include the results of the acquired MS Directional business beginning with the closing date of the acquisition of October 11, 2017.  Due to the timing of the closing of the acquisition, the Company has not completed the detailed valuation work necessary to determine the required estimates of the fair value of the acquired assets and liabilities assumed and the related allocation of purchase price.  MS Directional had total assets of approximately $104 million as of December 31, 2016, consisting of $21.4 million of accounts receivable, $23.9 million of inventory, $53.8 million of property and equipment and $4.9 million of other assets.  The Company’s preliminary allocation of purchase price to the assets acquired will be included in future SEC filings of the Company.

As this transaction closed subsequent to the end of the third quarter of 2017, the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes do not reflect any amounts relating to MS Directional.

 

 

3. Stock-based Compensation

 

The Company uses share-based payments to compensate employees and non-employee directors.  The Company recognizes the cost of share-based payments under the fair-value-based method.  Share-based awards include equity instruments in the form of stock options, restricted stock or restricted stock units that have included service conditions and, in certain cases, performance conditions.  The Company’s share-based awards also include share-settled performance unit awards.  Share-settled performance unit awards are accounted for as equity awards.  The Company issues shares of common stock when vested stock options are exercised, when restricted stock is granted and when restricted stock units and share-settled performance unit awards vest.

The Patterson-UTI Energy, Inc. 2014 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “2014 Plan”) was originally approved by the Company’s stockholders effective as of April 17, 2014.  On June 29, 2017, the Company’s stockholders approved the amendment and restatement of the 2014 Plan (the “Amended and Restated Plan”) to increase the number of shares available for future issuance under the plan to 10,049,156 shares.  The aggregate number of shares of Common Stock authorized for grant under the Amended and Restated Plan is 18.9 million, which includes the 9.1 million shares previously authorized under the 2014 Plan.

Stock Options — The Company estimates the grant date fair values of stock options using the Black-Scholes-Merton valuation model. Volatility assumptions are based on the historic volatility of the Company’s common stock over the most recent period equal to the expected term of the options as of the date such options are granted. The expected term assumptions are based on the Company’s experience with respect to employee stock option activity. Dividend yield assumptions are based on the expected dividends at the time the options are granted. The risk-free interest rate assumptions are determined by reference to United States Treasury yields. No options were granted in the three or nine months ended September 30, 2017. Weighted-average assumptions used to estimate the grant date fair values for stock options granted for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2016 follow:

Restricted Stock — For all restricted stock awards made to date, shares of common stock were issued when the awards were made. Non-vested shares are subject to forfeiture for failure to fulfill service conditions, and, in certain cases, performance conditions. Non-forfeitable dividends are paid on non-vested shares of restricted stock. The Company uses the straight-line method to recognize periodic compensation cost over the vesting period.
