HOUSTON - May 5, 2022 - Expro Group Holdings N.V. (NYSE: XPRO) (the “Company” or “Expro”) today reported financial and operational results for the three months, ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Revenue was $280 million compared to revenue of $296 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, a decrease of $16 million, or 5% driven by lower activity across the Europe and Sub Sahara Africa (ESSA) and Asia Pacific (APAC) segments, partially offset by higher activities in the North and Latin America (NLA) and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) segments.
  • Net loss for the first quarter of 2022 was $11 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $91 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2021. Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2022, excluding certain items, was $1 million, or $0.01 income per diluted share, compared to adjusted net loss for the fourth quarter of 2021 of $4 million, or $0.03 loss per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) was $37 million, a sequential decrease of $14 million, or 27%, driven by a combination of seasonally lower activity, mobilization costs incurred, and project start-up delays in regards to, the expansion of our subsea services offering during the current quarter, partially offset by lower corporate costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the first quarter of 2022 and fourth quarter of 2021 was 13% and 17%, respectively.
  • Net cash used in operating activities for the first quarter of 2022 was $(14) million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $16 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. Adjusted cash flow from operations (a non-GAAP measure) for the first quarter of 2022 was $(1) million compared to $41 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, primarily reflecting a seasonal decline in operating results and an increase in net working capital.

Michael Jardon, Chief Executive Officer, noted, “Expro delivered solid operational performance and encouraging financial results in the first quarter as we continue to unlock the benefits of the recently completed merger while capitalizing on our increased scale, broad portfolio of services and solutions, global operating footprint, through-cycle capabilities and strong financial profile.

“Despite a dynamic operating environment, Expro executed on a number of corporate priorities during the first few months of 2022. This is testament to our team’s expertise and resilience, combined with our broad portfolio of technology solutions and ability to be flexible in adapting to our customers’ evolving needs. 

“We achieved growth across North and Latin America and Middle East and North Africa, with notable growth in our well construction business and equipment sales related to well flow management, respectively. We also continue to realize the benefits of our investments to date to further develop our technology offerings, having recently completed a high temperature production profiling survey using our Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing (“DFOS”) technology following our recent acquisition of SolaSense, which we believe will significantly enhance Expro’s well data acquisition and analysis capabilities.

“Expro continues to support our customers’ energy transition goals through expanding our portfolio of carbon reduction solutions. In particular, we are seeing increasing potential in the geothermal market and have recently been awarded a geothermal well contracts in ESSA and APAC, thereby strengthening our position as an integrated services provider. This is a growing and increasingly important sector and key element of the energy services industry's journey toward a lower carbon future.

“Looking forward, we continue to see strengthening signals of a multi-year recovery as our customers seek to balance their energy security and sustainability priorities, and we expect demand for our services and solutions to increase throughout 2022 and beyond. In particular, operators are increasingly looking at short-cycle projects to boost production from existing assets and longer-cycle, new field development projects in order to increase production capacity and thereby improve the diversity and reliability of energy supply. Expro is uniquely positioned to serve our customers in the current market through our combined technology and know-how while prioritizing safety and service quality, enabling us to deliver maximum value to our customers, shareholders and other stakeholders.”
