Sales of $686 million, a 13% sequential increase
Net loss attributable to common stockholders of ($2) million
Adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders of $6 million
Adjusted EBITDA of $36 million
Cash Flow from Operations of $23 million

HOUSTON, July 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MRC Global Inc. (NYSE: MRC), the leading global distributor of pipe, valves and fittings and related infrastructure products and services to diversified end-markets, today announced second quarter 2021 results.

The company’s sales were $686 million for the second quarter of 2021, which was 13% higher than the first quarter of 2021 and 14% higher than the second quarter of 2020. Sequentially, gas utilities led the revenue growth as customers continued executing integrity upgrade plans on their natural gas distribution networks. As compared to the second quarter of 2020, broad economic recovery drove improvement in sales across all sectors, except midstream pipeline. 

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2021 was ($2) million, or ($0.02) per diluted share, as compared to the second quarter of 2020 net loss of ($287) million, or ($3.50) per diluted share. 

Rob Saltiel, MRC Global’s president and chief executive officer stated, “Our second quarter results were strong with 13% higher revenue sequentially, led by gains in our industry-leading gas utilities business. Increased revenue, along with continued emphasis on cost control, resulted in higher adjusted EBITDA margins of 5.2%, positive cash flow generation of $23 million and a significantly improved leverage ratio of 2.2 times. Our financial results reflect improving market conditions and our commitment to superior customer service and operational efficiency. We are increasingly optimistic about our outlook across all of our end-markets, including the energy transition space, through the second half of 2021 and into 2022."

MRC Global’s second quarter of 2021 gross profit was $112 million, or 16.3% of sales, as compared to the second quarter of 2020 gross profit of $79 million, or 13.1% of sales. Gross profit for the second quarter of 2021 includes $11 million of expense in cost of sales relating to the use of the last-in, first-out (LIFO) method of inventory cost accounting as compared to the second quarter of 2020, which reduced cost of sales by $6 million. Adjusted gross profit, which excludes the impact of LIFO was $134 million, or 19.5% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2021 and was $118 million, or 19.6% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2020. 

Please refer to the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures (adjusted gross profit, adjusted SG&A, adjusted EBITDA) to GAAP measures (gross profit, SG&A, net income) in this release.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $102 million, or 14.9% of sales, for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $126 million, or 20.9% of sales, for the same period in 2020. Adjusted SG&A of $101 million for the second quarter of 2021 excludes $1 million of facility closure costs in the International segment.

Income tax expense was $1 million for the second quarter of 2021, with an effective tax rate of 20%, as compared to an income tax benefit of $17 million for the second quarter of 2020. The company’s rates generally differ from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% as a result of state income taxes and differing foreign income tax rates.

Sales by Geographic Segment

U.S. sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $558 million, up $84 million, or 18%, from the same quarter in 2020. The gas utilities sector drove the increase, followed by the upstream production sector, due to improving economic conditions and higher customer activity levels. Gas utilities sector revenue improved $67 million, or 34%, as a new customer contract was fully implemented and activity increased as pandemic restrictions eased, and customers continued to execute their integrity upgrade programs from the low point in the second quarter of 2020. Upstream production sector sales increased by $15 million, or 23%, primarily due to increased customer spending driven by improved commodity prices and a corresponding increase in well completions. Downstream and industrial sector sales increased $10 million, or 8%, due to increased turnaround and small project spending. Midstream pipeline sector sales declined $8 million, or 10%, due to the completion of non-repeatable project activity in 2020. 

Canada sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $30 million, up $2 million, or 7%, from the same quarter in 2020, driven by the net effect of a stronger Canadian dollar, and an improvement in the upstream production and downstream and industrial sectors. Improved commodity pricing, the easing of pandemic restrictions, as well as small projects and turnaround activity all contributed to the increase. 

International sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $98 million, down $2 million, or 2%, from the same period in 2020 driven by the net effect of lower activity levels in the upstream sector, partially offset by stronger foreign currencies. 

Sales by End-Market Sector

Gas utilities sector sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $269 million, or 39% of total sales, an increase of $64 million, or 31%, from the second quarter of 2020, driven by the U.S. segment.

Downstream and industrial sector sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $191 million, or 28% of total sales, an increase of $15 million, or 9%, from the second quarter of 2020. The increase in the downstream and industrial sector sales was across all segments, led by the U.S. segment. Sequentially, downstream and industrial sector sales were down slightly at 2% due to less turnaround work as well as elevated sales in the first quarter of 2021 from recovery work related to inclement weather in February.

Upstream production sector sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $143 million, or 21% of total sales, an improvement of $9 million, or 7%, from the second quarter of 2020. The increase in upstream production sales was led by the U.S. segment. Sequentially, upstream production sector sales increased $16 million, or 13%, also driven by the U.S. as customers increased spending for completions and facility construction.

Midstream pipeline sector sales in the second quarter of 2021 were $83 million, or 12% of total sales, a reduction of $4 million, or 5%, from the second quarter of 2020, driven by the U.S. segment. Sequentially, midstream pipeline sector sales increased $5 million, or 6%, due to improving market conditions and small projects.

Balance Sheet

Cash provided by operations was $23 million in the second quarter of 2021. As of June 30, 2021, the cash balance was $63 million. Also, long-term debt was $297 million, and net debt was $234 million, both the lowest in our public company history. As of June 30, 2021, availability under the company’s asset-based lending facility was $444 million and available liquidity was $507 million. An $86 million excess cash flow payment was made in late April 2021. 

Please refer to the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures (Net Debt) to GAAP measures (Long-term Debt) in this release.

(1)Non-cash charges (pre-tax) for inventory recorded in cost of goods sold. Charges of $19 million in the U.S. and $1 million in Canada relate to excess and obsolete inventory as a result of the market outlook for certain products. International segment charges of $14 million relate to increased reserves for excess and obsolete inventory as well as the exit of the Thailand business.

The company defines Adjusted Gross Profit as sales, less cost of sales, plus depreciation and amortization, plus amortization of intangibles, plus inventory-related charges and plus or minus the impact of its LIFO inventory costing methodology. The company presents Adjusted Gross Profit because the company believes it is a useful indicator of the company’s operating performance without regard to items, such as amortization of intangibles, that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon the nature and extent of acquisitions of which they have been involved. Similarly, the impact of the LIFO inventory costing method can cause results to vary substantially from company to company depending upon whether they elect to utilize LIFO and depending upon which method they may elect. The company uses Adjusted Gross Profit as a key performance indicator in managing its business. The company believes that gross profit is the financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles that is most directly comparable to Adjusted Gross Profit.

(3)Charges (pre-tax) related to employee separation of which $1 million is non-cash share-based compensation.

The company defines Adjusted Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses as SG&A, less severance and restructuring expenses, employee separation costs, facility closures plus the recovery of supplier bad debt. The company presents Adjusted SG&A because the company believes it is a useful indicator of the company’s operating performance without regard to items that can vary substantially from company to company. The company presents Adjusted SG&A because the company believes Adjusted SG&A is a useful indicator of the company’s operating performance. Among other things, Adjusted SG&A measures the company’s operating performance without regard to certain non-recurring, non-cash or transaction-related expenses. The company uses Adjusted SG&A as a key performance indicator in managing its business. The company believes that SG&A is the financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles that is most directly comparable to Adjusted SG&A.

The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, amortization of intangibles, and certain other expenses, including non-cash expenses, (such as equity-based compensation, severance and restructuring, changes in the fair value of derivative instruments and asset impairments, including intangible assets and inventory) and plus or minus the impact of its LIFO inventory costing methodology.  The company presents Adjusted EBITDA because the company believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful indicator of the company’s operating performance. Among other things, Adjusted EBITDA measures the company’s operating performance without regard to certain non-recurring, non-cash or transaction-related expenses. Adjusted EBITDA, however, does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, cash flow from operations or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because Adjusted EBITDA does not account for certain expenses, its utility as a measure of the company’s operating performance has material limitations. Because of these limitations, the company does not view Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a primary performance measure and also uses other measures, such as net income and sales, to measure operating performance.  See the company's Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for a more thorough discussion of the use of Adjusted EBITDA.

(1)Non-cash charges (after-tax) for the impairment of $215 million for goodwill and $19 million for the U.S. intangible, indefinite-lived tradename asset. The after-tax goodwill impairment consisted of $175 million for the U.S. segment and $40 million for the International segment, resulting in a $0 balance for the International segment.
(2)Charges (after-tax) for inventory recorded in cost of goods sold. Charges (after-tax) of $15 million in the U.S. relate to excess and obsolete inventory as a result of the current market outlook for certain products. International segment charges (after-tax) of $14 million relate to increased reserves for excess and obsolete inventory as well as the exit of the Thailand business. 
(3)Charges (after-tax) of $14 million for lease impairments and abandonments related to facility closures, substantially non-cash, recorded in SG&A. $11 million is recorded in the International segment, $2 million in the U.S. segment and $1 million in the Canada segment, each after-tax. Also includes $2 million of non-cash (after-tax) charges for the write-down of assets for facilities in Canada ($2 million) and International, recorded in Other expense. 
(4)Charges (after-tax) related to employee severance and restructuring charges associated with the company’s cost reduction initiatives recorded in SG&A, of which $4 million is in the U.S. segment and $1 million is in the International segment.

The company defines Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders (a non-GAAP measure) as Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders less after-tax goodwill and intangible impairment, inventory-related charges, facility closures, severance and restructuring, plus or minus the after-tax impact of its LIFO inventory costing methodology. The company presents Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders and related per share amounts because the company believes it provides useful comparisons of the company’s operating results to other companies, including those companies with whom we compete in the distribution of pipe, valves and fittings to the energy industry, without regard to the irregular variations from certain restructuring events not indicative of the on-going business. Those items include goodwill and intangible asset impairments, inventory-related charges, facility closures, severance and restructuring as well as the LIFO inventory costing methodology. The impact of the LIFO inventory costing methodology can cause results to vary substantially from company to company depending upon whether they elect to utilize LIFO and depending upon which method they may elect. The company believes that Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders is the financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles that is most directly compared to Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders.

Reconciliation of Long-term Debt to Net Debt (a non-GAAP measure) and the Leverage Ratio Calculation
(in millions)

  June 30, 
  2021 
     
Long-term debt, net $296 
Plus: current portion of long-term debt  1 
Long-term debt  297 
Less: cash  63 
Net Debt $234 
     
Net Debt $234 
Trailing twelve months adjusted EBITDA  106 
Leverage ratio  2.2 

Notes to above:

Net Debt and related leverage metrics may be considered non-GAAP measures. We define Net Debt as total long-term debt, including current portion, minus cash. We define our leverage ratio as Net Debt divided by trailing twelve months Adjusted EBITDA. We believe Net Debt is an indicator of the extent to which the company’s outstanding debt obligations could be satisfied by cash on hand and a useful metric for investors to evaluate the company’s leverage position. We believe the leverage ratio is a commonly used metric that management and investors use to assess the borrowing capacity of the company. We believe total long-term debt (including the current portion) is the financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles that is most directly comparable to Net Debt.
