HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2018--Ranger Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: RNGR) (“Ranger” or the “Company”) announced today its results for its fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2018.Continuation of year-to-date momentum, on-going improvement across all aspects of our business. Top line growth and margin growth driven by rate increases and asset additions across both the Well Services and Processing Solutions segments of our business.

Q3 2018 Financial Highlights
Revenues saw a sequential increase of 12% to $82.1 million, from $73.1 million in Q2 2018.
Net income increased $5.2 million to net income of $4.0 million from a net loss of $1.2 million in Q2. The increase to a net income position was driven by improved operating results and a tax benefit for Q3, partially offset by increased interest expense.
Adjusted EBITDA 1 increased 30% to $12.6 million, from $9.7 million in Q2. The Adjusted EBITDA increase was driven primarily by revenue growth and partially offset by a higher underlying costs of services.
The average hourly rates for high-spec rigs increased by 1% to approximately $519 from $513 in Q2.
Rig hours decreased 3% to approximately 74,200 from 76,200 in Q2.
Ranger continued its momentum of improving results in Q3 delivering a 30% sequential increase in Adjusted EBITDA. Both segments of our business experienced growth driven by improved pricing and select asset additions.
Ranger’s ongoing focus on shale completion activity continues to pay dividends, driving improved results. Our High Spec Rigs again experienced a modest increase in pricing though offset this quarter by a decrease in utilization. Our Permian Wireline Completions business continues to operate on a 100% dedicated basis with an average unit count of nine during the quarter, up from seven in Q2.
Although we are pleased with the quarter, there is still more progress to be made. We continue to focus on operational execution, targeting 24-hour completion work and positioning assets in the highest demand basis across our strong, diverse geographic footprint.
Looking forward, we remain excited about the opportunities ahead of us. As customers continue to focus on completion efficiency, we expect the service market to see ongoing segregation based on operational performance and total value. We believe our talented work force and purpose-built asset base are delivering the value that our customers need, driving continued demand for our services and fueling future investment opportunities.
During the quarter, revenues increased 12% to $82.1 million from $73.1 million in Q2. The improvement was primarily attributable to the increased activity of our wireline completions business.
The results by segment were as follows:
Well Services’ segment revenue increased 13% to $78.1 million in Q3 2018 from $69.1 million in Q2 2018.
Average hourly rig rates increased 1%, or $6, to $519 on select price increases. Rig utilization, as measured by average monthly hours per rig, decreased to 178 from 187. Total rig hours decreased 3% to approximately 74,200 hours in Q3 from 76,200 in Q2. The average number of rigs in our fleet increased to 139 rigs for Q3 from 136 in Q2. During Q3, one rig was delivered and three rigs entered service.
Also within the Well Services segment, we saw growth in wireline activity with an increase in average wireline unit count from seven in Q2 to nine in Q3 along with the addition of a pump-down spread.
Processing Solutions revenue remained constant at $4.0 million.
Operating Income and Net Income
During the quarter, operating income increased to $4.4 million from $1.0 million in Q2 2018 mainly due to improved gross margins. The increase in revenues were partially offset by an increase in cost of services.
During the quarter, the net income improved by $5.2 million to $4.0 million from a net loss of $1.2 million in Q2 2018. The improvement was due to the higher Q3 revenues and margins as discussed above.
Adjusted EBITDA increased to $12.6 million in Q3 from $9.7 million in Q2 2018. The improvement was largely due to increased revenues from our wireline activity driven by both higher rates and select asset additions.
We ended the quarter with $41.7 million of liquidity, consisting of $21.7 million of capacity available on our revolving credit facility, $18.0 million of capacity on our secured financing agreement and $2.0 million of cash.
The Q3 cash ending balance of $2.0 million compares to $10.5 million at the end of the Q2 2018. We had an outstanding draw on our revolving credit facility of $18.5 million leaving $21.7 million of capacity on a quarter end borrowing base of $40.2 million.
During 2Q 2018, we entered into a Financing Agreement in an amount of up to $40.0 million with an initial draw of $22.0 million. This incremental liquidity allows us the flexibility to add capital equipment as market opportunities arise.
Total capital expenditures recorded during the quarter were $21.0 million. Of that amount, $10.0 million was related to our wireline business including two new wireline units, two sets of pump-down pumps and associated ancillary equipment. The total amount included $6.0 million related to service rigs, including one new high-spec rig and ancillary equipment for the new high-spec rig and existing rigs. Also included was $2.0 million associated with the addition of two processing units in our Processing Solutions segment. Additions of new leased vehicles to support current growth and replacement of vehicles amount to $3.0 million.

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements contained in this press release constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 . These forward-looking statements represent Ranger’s expectations or beliefs concerning future events, and it is possible that the results described in this press release will not be achieved. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside of Ranger’s control that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements.
Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and, except as required by law, Ranger does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for Ranger to predict all such factors. When considering these forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the risk factors and other cautionary statements in our filings from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The risk factors and other factors noted in Ranger’s filings with the SEC could cause its actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.
Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, net, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, acquisition-related and severance costs, impairment of goodwill, gain or loss on sale of assets and certain other items that we do not view as indicative of our ongoing performance.
We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure because it allows for an effective evaluation of our operating performance when compared to our peers, without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. We exclude the items listed above from net income or loss in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss determined in accordance with GAAP. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are reflected in Adjusted EBITDA. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that our results will be unaffected by the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be identical to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table presents reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA, our most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
The following table is a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and June 30, 2018, in millions:
