Girish Saligram, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The results from the fourth quarter bookend another transformative year for the company and underscore the fundamentally changed nature of our operating profile. I am very grateful to our One Weatherford team for their continued passion and commitment in delivering these results.

2023 top line growth of 19%, adjusted free cash flow generation of $651 million, margin expansion of 423 basis points, and adjusted EBITDA margins of 23.1% set another record. Simultaneously, we made measurable improvements in our capital structure, with continued debt pay down, an enhanced credit facility, and credit rating upgrades. These actions and results reflect our commitment to achieving our strategic priorities and position us for a new phase of growth.

On February 1, 2024, we completed the acquisition of two technology companies in the wireline space from Turnbridge Capital – Probe and Impact Selector International, both widely recognized brands. We also completed the acquisition of Ardyne, a leader in well de-commissioning technology with whom we have had a partnership since the fourth quarter of 2022. These companies are strategically aligned with our portfolio and fit well within our acquisition criterion. We have very robust integration plans and are excited about the additional technology differentiation they add to Weatherford.

Our outlook for 2024 remains positive, with market fundamentals and international and offshore activity continuing to show resilience. We expect full year 2024 revenue to grow between double digits and low teens year-over-year, spearheaded by robust growth in the Middle East, and for adjusted EBITDA margins to make meaningful progress towards our goal of 25%.”

Weatherford International plcNon-GAAP Financial Measures Defined (Unaudited)

We report our financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, Weatherford’s management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures (as defined under the SEC’s Regulation G and Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K) may provide users of this financial information additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results of prior periods and comparisons with peer companies. The non-GAAP amounts shown in the following tables should not be considered as substitutes for results reported in accordance with GAAP but should be viewed in addition to the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA* – Adjusted EBITDA* is a non-GAAP measure and represents consolidated income before interest expense, net, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, and excludes, among other items, restructuring charges, share-based compensation expense, as well as other charges and credits. Management believes adjusted EBITDA* is useful to assess and understand normalized operating performance and trends. Adjusted EBITDA* should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for consolidated net income and should be viewed in addition to the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA margin* – Adjusted EBITDA margin* is a non-GAAP measure which is calculated by dividing consolidated adjusted EBITDA* by consolidated revenues. Management believes adjusted EBITDA margin* is useful to assess and understand normalized operating performance and trends. Adjusted EBITDA margin* should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for consolidated net income margin and should be viewed in addition to the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow* (formerly titled as Free Cash Flow) – Adjusted free cash flow* is a non-GAAP measure and represents cash flows provided by (used in) operating activities, less capital expenditures plus proceeds from the disposition of assets. Management believes adjusted free cash flow* is useful to understand our performance at generating cash and demonstrates our discipline around the use of cash. Adjusted free cash flow* should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for cash flows provided by operating activities and should be viewed in addition to the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
