HOUSTON, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Koil Energy Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: KLNG) (“Koil Energy” or the “Company”), a specialist in deepwater production and distribution equipment and services, today reported results for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Charles Njuguna, Koil Energy’s CEO, commented, “Koil Energy’s top-line results for 2022 are indicative of the challenging offshore environment we experienced last year. Inflation, certain geopolitical events, and recurring recession indicators continued to weigh on the timing of our customers’ deepwater project schedules. Our original expectations for 2022 included written confirmation of two projects totaling $7.6 million related to equipment destined for international developments. These projects had tentative start dates and were expected to be executed in 2022 but were ultimately postponed for different reasons. One was put on hold due to governmental action in the destination country while the other was impacted by M&A activities of the operator. We estimate that these two projects would have increased our 2022 revenues by approximately $6.5 million.

“Our outlook on the energy markets for 2023 and beyond remains constructive. We believe we are currently in the midst of a ramp up in offshore investment that is fueled by several supply and demand factors, including a surge in global demand for energy, supply disruptions triggered by the Ukrainian war, slower U.S. shale production growth, and supportive commodity prices that remain above pre-pandemic levels. Participation in this upcycle is essential for our business to achieve a sustained level of growth. As such, we are committed to engaging with our customers on a deeper level to better understand their offshore needs. These efforts have led to increased bidding activity and execution of contract awards so far this year.     

“We pride ourselves in being one of the most creative problem-solving groups in the industry, and we have been hard at work solidifying this reputation by offering the most effective solutions for our customers. Promoting this culture internally enabled us to expand our core offerings and provide several new products and services in 2022. These projects ranged from utilizing our first-class services for pipeline testing and the testing of riser joints to leveraging our experienced carbon welding team to fabricate pipeline maintenance equipment for a key customer. We are encouraged by these new scopes of work and will look to leverage this experience as we pursue further growth opportunities.

“Rebranding the company from Deep Down, Inc. to Koil Energy Solutions, Inc. last year was the next step in promoting our core competencies to expand our product and service offerings into new markets. We also successfully transitioned the Company’s operations to our newly leased premises during 2022, and we are excited that our new headquarters will enrich our team’s ability to support the needs of our clients as well as allow us to expand our core competencies beyond our traditional core products and services.

“The growth of our business remains a top priority and managing cash flow and preserving liquidity remains of critical importance. Bidding and project activity remain strong, and we are confident our streamlined operations and continued focus on our core strengths will enable us to be the primary choice for our customers. We also remain cautiously optimistic that we are positioned for further success in the renewable energy segments as the opportunities within this segment continue to build. This, combined with our recent rebranding efforts to Koil Energy and completing the move to our new headquarters, will provide us with the momentum needed to achieve this desired growth.”

Operating Results

Koil Energy’s revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2022 (“Q4 2022”) decreased 31 percent to $3.6 million compared to $5.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 (“Q4 2021”). Our full-year 2022 revenues decreased 25 percent to $13.0 million, compared with $17.2 million for full-year 2021, primarily due to an overall decline in project activity characterized by a shift from product-oriented, fixed price contracts to short duration projects utilizing our support services and rental solutions.

Gross profit for Q4 2022 was $1.5 million, or 42 percent of revenues, compared to Q4 2021 gross profit of $1.9 million, or 36 percent of revenues. Our full-year 2022 gross profit was $4.7 million, or 36 percent of revenues, compared to full-year 2021 gross profit of $5.8 million, or 34 percent of revenues. The increase in gross profit percentage was due to incurring less materials costs and decreases in lower margin passthrough service costs encountered on certain projects in 2022 when compared to 2021.

Operating expenses were $2.8 million, or 77 percent of revenues, in Q4 2022 compared to $1.3 million, or 26 percent of revenues, in Q4 2021. Our full-year 2022 operating expenses were $7.7 million, or 59 percent of revenues, compared to full-year 2021 operating expenses of $6.2 million, or 36 percent of revenues. Operating expenses in 2022 were impacted by a right-of-use operating lease asset impairment charge of $0.8 million related to vacating our former operating facility in Q4 2022. Additionally, in 2022 we incurred approximately $0.5 million of costs related to the relocation to our new facility and $0.2 million related to rebranding the Company from Deep Down Inc. to Koil Energy Solutions, Inc.

Due to the factors discussed above, Koil Energy reported a Q4 2022 net loss of $1.3 million, or a $0.11 loss per diluted share, compared to a Q4 2021 net profit of $1.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. Our full-year 2022 net loss was $2.9 million, or a $0.24 loss per diluted share, compared to full-year 2021 net income of $2.3 million, or $0.19 per diluted share. Per share results for Q4 2022, Q4 2021, full-year 2022, and full-year 2021 are based on 11.89 million, 12.39 million, 11.98 million, and 12.45 million weighted average shares outstanding, respectively.

Koil Energy reported a negative $0.1 million modified EBITDA in Q4 2022 compared to a modified EBITDA of $0.8 million in Q4 2021. Our full-year 2022 modified EBITDA was negative $1.0 million compared to modified EBITDA of $0.7 million for full-year 2021. The comparative decreases in modified EBITDA were primarily driven by the decline in revenues in 2022 as compared to 2021.

Share Repurchases

During the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company repurchased in privately negotiated transactions an aggregate of 500,663 shares of common stock for $0.15 million in cash and in exchange for several long-lived assets valued at $0.08 million. No shares of common stock were purchased during the year ended December 31, 2021.

Financial Strength

At December 31, 2022, Koil Energy had working capital of $3.9 million, which includes cash of $2.4 million and net receivables of $2.9 million. Total shareholders’ equity was $7.1 million, or approximately $0.59 per common share. Given the Company’s current capital structure, Koil Energy remains in a strong financial position for continued growth.
