Doug Pferdehirt, CEO of TechnipFMC, stated, “Our full year operational performance is a result of our relentless focus on project execution and our commitment to delivering client success. This focus was evident once again in the strong operational results demonstrated across all segments in the fourth quarter. Total Company adjusted EBITDA grew sequentially, driven by strong project execution and key milestone achievements on several projects in both Subsea and Onshore/Offshore. Surface Technologies results were broadly in-line with the solid third quarter performance. We are extremely pleased with these results along with the many operational, commercial, and strategic accomplishments of our first year as TechnipFMC.”

“Full year Subsea orders of $5.1 billion increased 27 percent from the prior year, reflecting a book-to-bill approaching one. In Subsea, we recorded $1.7 billion in orders for the quarter; this included our 6th, and first major, iEPCI™ award for the VNG Norge Fenja project in Norway. Total Company orders were $3 billion in the quarter, and year-end backlog stands at $13 billion.”

Pferdehirt continued, “In 2018, we expect to see another increase in subsea market activity, driven by major projects as well as a blend of small-to-mid size projects and service opportunities. We remain confident that our inbound orders will grow year-over-year and that as much as 25 percent of these orders will come from iEPCI™ in 2018.”

“In Onshore/Offshore, we were awarded Bapco’s Sitra refinery expansion in Bahrain, which follows our successful completion of the FEED study. We remain confident in further downstream awards in the near-term. Our front-end engineering activity is also signaling a resurgence in the natural gas market, with notable prospects in North America, the Arctic region and the Middle East. We are further encouraged by growth in our medium-to-long term prospects, which could provide considerable inbound opportunity in the coming years.”

“In the North American surface market, we see increased activity in unconventional resources, driven by further improvement in rig count and increased frac intensity. In 2018, we believe that revenues for our North American business will begin to approach the levels we achieved at the cycle peak in 2014. We also expect international markets will return to growth in 2018, although at a more moderate pace than North America. The Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Europe are positioned for the strongest growth.”

Pferdehirt concluded, “We will balance investment for growth against returning capital to our investors and will continue the dividend and share repurchase activity we initiated last year. Our strong execution performance and market acceptance of our integrated business model and new technologies, combined with our continued focus on cost and efficiency, positions us well to deliver strong performance in 2018.”

Revenue $1,292.2 $2,024.1 (36.2%)
Operating profit $67.4 $146.3 (53.9%)
Adjusted EBITDA $244.1 $395.9 (38.3%)
Adjusted EBITDA margin 18.9% 19.6% (70 bps)
Inbound orders $1,724.8
Backlog $6,203.9    

Subsea reported fourth quarter revenue of $1,292.2 million. Revenue was down 36.2 percent from the prior year, primarily due to a reduction in project activity within the Europe and Africa as well as Asia Pacific regions. Revenue continues to be negatively impacted by prior period declines in inbound orders related to the market downturn.

Subsea reported operating profit of $67.4 million; adjusted EBITDA was $244.1 million with a margin of 18.9 percent. Operating profit margin decreased from the prior year as a result of the revenue decline, although strong project execution and cost reduction initiatives mitigated the negative impact of reduced project activity. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased only 70 basis points from the prior-year results despite a 36.2 percent decline in revenue, and benefitted from the same factors that impacted operating profit margin.

Vessel utilization rate for the fourth quarter was 65 percent, down from 70 percent in the third quarter and from 78 percent in the prior year.

Fourth Quarter Subsea Highlights

  • Total Kaombo

The installation campaign for umbilicals, spools, and other subsea components continues, followed by hook-up of the FPSO.

Adjusted EBITDA margin 14.6% 6.5% 810 bps
Inbound orders $874.2
Backlog $6,369.1    

Onshore/Offshore reported fourth quarter revenue of $2,019.5 million. Revenue declined 2 percent from the prior-year quarter. Revenue was modestly lower as we neared completion of the first phase of Yamal LNG, largely offset by increased project activity in the Europe, Middle East, and Asia Pacific regions.

Onshore/Offshore reported operating profit of $257.2 million; adjusted EBITDA was $294.5 million with a margin of 14.6 percent. Operating profit and margin improved year-over-year due to solid execution and the achievement of key milestones on several major projects, including Yamal LNG. These same factors drove the significant year-over-year improvement in adjusted EBITDA and margin; adjusted EBITDA margin increased 810 basis points from the prior-year results.

Fourth Quarter Onshore/Offshore Highlights

  • Yamal LNG

Train 1 start-up successful with first cargo loaded in December 2017, with additional cargos achieved to date. Construction and commissioning of Trains 2 and 3 progressing with Train 2 start-up planned for the second half of 2018.

  • SIBUR Zapsib 2

Engineering completed at the end of December, with most equipment already on site and construction activities ongoing.

  • ENOC Jebel Ali Refinery Upgrade

Mechanical as well as electrical and instrumentation subcontracts awarded. Mobilization at site ramping up. Piping prefabrication campaign has begun.

Award of $4.2 billion from Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco), jointly with Samsung Engineering and Tecnicas Reunidas, for the Bapco Modernization Program, which entails capacity expansion of the existing Sitra oil refinery. Project award follows our successful completion of the FEED study and will be executed on an engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) lump sum turnkey basis. Slated for completion in 2022.

Note: This award will be reflected in financial results in the first quarter of 2018. Additionally, the Company is not the majority owner of the joint venture and therefore will not fully consolidate the financial results. Inbound orders and backlog for the project will only reflect work awarded directly to affiliates of TechnipFMC by the joint venture.

Revenue $372.3 $303.6 22.6%
Operating profit (loss) $53.3 $(5.3) n/m
Adjusted EBITDA $75.8 $17.5 333.1%
Adjusted EBITDA margin 20.4% 5.8% 1,460bps
Inbound orders $392.9
Backlog $409.8    

Surface Technologies reported fourth quarter revenue of $372.3 million. Revenue increased 22.6 percent from the prior-year quarter as a result of the increase in North American well completion activity, while international markets remained stable across our products and services portfolio.

Surface Technologies reported operating profit of $53.3 million. Adjusted EBITDA was $75.8 million with a margin of 20.4 percent.

Operating profit and margin improved significantly year-over-year due to robust North America surface activity favorably impacting product mix as well as cost savings benefits. These same factors drove the year-over-year improvement in adjusted EBITDA and margin.

Inbound orders for the quarter improved sequentially to $392.9 million. Backlog was $409.8 million. Given the short-cycle nature of the business, most orders are quickly converted into sales revenue; longer contracts are typically converted within twelve months.

Corporate Items

Corporate expense in the fourth quarter was $86.8 million. Excluding charges and credits of $44.8 million associated with the merger, corporate expense was $42 million.

Net interest expense was $122.8 million in the quarter, which included an increase in the liability payable to joint venture partners of $90.8 million.

The Company recorded a tax provision during the fourth quarter of $295.8 million, which included charges of $138.2 million related to tax reform3, mostly in the United States. The quarterly rate also reflects an increase in valuation allowances in certain jurisdictions for which no future profitability is expected, as well as certain project costs realized in the quarter for which no tax benefit is allowed. Excluding the impact of these discrete items and tax law changes, the effective tax rate in the quarter was 33 percent.

Total depreciation and amortization for the fourth quarter was $153 million, including depreciation and amortization related to purchase price accounting for the merger of $35.1 million.

Capital expenditures were $85.3 million during the fourth quarter.

The Company repurchased two million shares during the quarter for total consideration of $54.9 million. The Company remains committed to repurchasing the full authorization of up to $500 million in ordinary shares no later than the end of 2018.

_____________________

2 All prior year period comparisons are to pro forma results for 2016 as if the merger had been completed on January 1, 2016 and fully consolidated the Yamal LNG joint venture for the full period.
3 Included in the charges related to tax reform is the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (U.S. tax reform), effective January 1, 2018, which creates a territorial tax system and reduces the U.S. corporate income tax rate to 21 percent. Also included in the charges related to tax reform are French corporate tax surcharges resulting from the 2017 Finance Act introduced in late 2017.

TechnipFMC recorded $134.9 million of discrete charges as a result of the new U.S. law. These one-time, non-cash charges are comprised of a transition tax (a mandatory tax on previously deferred earnings of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries) and a charge related to revaluation of U.S. deferred tax assets and liabilities to the new lower U.S. corporate income tax rate. These charges are subject to revision as the Company concludes its analysis of the impact of the new law. The Company anticipates that no cash taxes will be due as a result of the transition tax.

The Company’s full-year guidance3 for 2018 is provided below. The following update is reflected in the outlook:

4 Our guidance measure, adjusted EBITDA margin, is a non-GAAP measure. We are unable to provide a reconciliation to a comparable GAAP measure on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort because of the unpredictability of the individual components of the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and the variability of items excluded from such measure. Such information may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future financial results.

TECHNIPFMC plc AND CONSOLIDATED SUBSIDIARIES

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for TechnipFMC plc and consolidated subsidiaries are provided on the following pages. The financial results reflect the following information:

  • On January 16, 2017, TechnipFMC was created by the business combination of Technip S.A. (Technip) and FMC Technologies, Inc. (FMC Technologies).
  • In December of 2016, Technip increased its ownership in the Yamal LNG joint venture and became the controlling shareholder. Under U.S. GAAP, this would have resulted in full consolidation of the joint venture on the date of the transaction.

The Non-GAAP results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2017:

  1. Include the results of Technip for the full period;
  2. Include the results of FMC Technologies for the period January 17 to December 31, 2017; revenue of $112.9 million during the period from January 1 to January 16, 2017 were excluded, of which approximately 70 percent from Subsea and the remainder from Surface Technologies; and
  3. Fully consolidate the Yamal LNG joint venture for the full period, within the Onshore/Offshore segment.

The Non-GAAP pro forma results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016:

  1. Include the results of both Technip and FMC Technologies for the full period;
  2. Combine FMC Technologies’ former Surface Technologies and Energy Infrastructure segments to form the pro forma Surface Technologies segment;
  3. Purchase price accounting adjustments applied on an equal basis to results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2017 to provide comparability; and
  4. Fully consolidate the Yamal LNG joint venture for the full period, within the Onshore/Offshore segment.

When referencing these financial statements, adjusted EBITDA is also used to describe EBITDA excluding amortization related to the impact of purchase price accounting and other charges and credits.

Charges and Credits

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Fourth Quarter 2017 Earnings Release also includes non-GAAP financial measures (as defined in Item 10 of Regulation S-K of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) and describes performance on a year-over-year basis against 2016 pro forma results and measures. Net income, excluding charges and credits, as well as measures derived from it (including Diluted EPS, excluding charges and credits; Income before net interest expense and taxes, excluding charges and credits ("Adjusted Operating profit"); Depreciation and amortization, excluding charges and credits; Earnings before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding charges and credits ("Adjusted EBITDA"); and net cash) are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that the exclusion of charges and credits from these financial measures enables investors and management to more effectively evaluate TechnipFMC's operations and consolidated results of operations period-over-period, and to identify operating trends that could otherwise be masked or misleading to both investors and management by the excluded items. These measures are also used by management as performance measures in determining certain incentive compensation. The foregoing non-GAAP financial measures should be considered by investors in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The following is a reconciliation of the most comparable financial measures under GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measures.

Net cash (debt) is a non-GAAP financial measure reflecting cash and cash equivalents, net of debt. Management uses this non-GAAP financial measure to evaluate TechnipFMC's capital structure and financial leverage. Management believes net cash (debt) is a meaningful financial measure that may also assist investors in understanding TechnipFMC's financial condition and underlying trends in its capital structure.
