HOUSTON and LONDON, Jan. 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Baker Hughes Company (Nasdaq: BKR) (Baker Hughes or the Company) announced results today for the fourth-quarter and full-year 2023.

“As we continue our journey, 2023 proved to be a pivotal year for Baker Hughes. We successfully removed $150 million of costs, realigned our Industrial & Energy Technology (IET) segment, and recently launched actions to further streamline our Oilfield Services & Equipment segment (OFSE). Our strategy to transform the way we operate is working. In 2023, our adjusted EBITDA* was up double digits for the third consecutive year and exceeded prior cycle’s peak levels by 25%. I would like to thank our employees for their hard work and commitment to achieve our goals, delivering for our customers, and pushing the Company forward,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, Baker Hughes chairman and chief executive officer.

“During the fourth quarter, adjusted EBITDA* came in above the mid-point of our guidance range due to continued operational improvement and full realization of the $150 million of cost-out. IET orders remained strong, exceeding $3 billion for the fifth consecutive quarter. Additionally, we were awarded more than $1 billion of contractual service agreements (CSA), while we booked the previously announced 9.6 MTPA Ruwais Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project in the United Arab Emirates.”

“In OFSE, we continue to demonstrate solid margin improvement, with segment EBITDA margin* increasing to 17.9% and Oilfield Services EBITDA margins* now exceeding 20% – both record margins. In new energy, orders of $169 million in the fourth quarter brought the full-year total to $750 million.”

“As you can see from our strong 2023 results, Baker Hughes is on its way to becoming a leaner and more efficient energy technology company. We continue to carefully execute our plan to drive margins meaningfully higher,” concluded Simonelli.

Quarter Highlights

The OFSE business segment secured two significant, multi-year integrated solutions contracts in Latin America for drilling, completions, and plug and abandonment services. One contract comprises offshore exploration, while the other is for land development. The awards reflect confidence in Baker Hughes’ solutions, contributing to our strategy of strengthening the core by increasing market penetration.

Strong orders performance continued across IET in the fourth quarter. In Gas Technology Equipment, momentum continues in the offshore market. Baker Hughes was awarded an important contract by SBM Offshore to provide turbogenerators, turbocompressors, electric motor-driven compressors, as well as commissioning spare parts, for a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO).

Gas Technology Equipment also secured an important contract from a consortium for one electric motor driven sour gas booster compression package, to support the development of offshore natural gas fields in the Middle East. During the fourth quarter Baker Hughes also confirmed the previously announced award to supply two electric liquefaction systems for the 9.6 MTPA Ruwais LNG project in the United Arab Emirates, one of the first all-electric LNG projects in the Middle East.

Gas Technology Services secured several orders across multiple geographies and applications, as well CSA commitments worth more than $1 billion primarily driven by LNG and offshore projects in North America and the Middle East. Also in the quarter, Gas Technology Services secured several important upgrade orders, particularly in Europe for both refinery and gas network applications to provide operators with solutions that can enable efficiency gains and emissions reduction.

IET’s Industrial Solutions product line expanded the reach of its Cordant™ digital solutions and reached a multi-year contract deal with Shell to centralize asset condition and performance monitoring (System 1™) across 33 sites. India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) awarded IET a multi-year contract for asset health software and services, pursuant to which Baker Hughes will implement asset health (System 1™) software across 12 offshore platforms and build a center of excellence in ONGC’s Mumbai headquarters.

In new energy in the fourth quarter, IET secured a Climate Technology Solutions order for two Brush synchronous condenser systems to be installed by a distribution and transmission network operator for one of its substation extension projects in the U.K. The order also includes installation, commissioning and a multi-year services and maintenance contract. OFSE also continued to make progress on the new energy front, supporting a Middle Eastern customer’s energy transition goals and its first geothermal application by deploying the PYRO-DRILL high-temperature drilling fluid. This followed a strong year of geothermal awards, the Q3 launch of the complete portfolio of Vulcanix geothermal drill bits, and this quarter’s launch of Baker Hughes’ ThermaStim solution to unlock full well potential and lessen environmental burden.

*Non-GAAP measure. See reconciliations in the section titled “Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

“F” is used when variance is above 100%. Additionally, “U” is used when variance is below (100)%.

Revenue for the quarter was $6,835 million, an increase of 3% sequentially and an increase of 16% year-over-year. The increase in revenue was driven by higher volume in both IET and OFSE.

The Company’s total book-to-bill ratio in the quarter was 1.0; the IET book-to-bill ratio in the quarter was 1.1.

Operating income on a GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $651 million. Operating income decreased $62 million sequentially and decreased $12 million year-over-year. Total segment operating income was $904 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, up 12% sequentially and up 14% year-over-year.

Adjusted operating income (a non-GAAP measure) for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $816 million, which excludes adjustments totaling $165 million before tax. A complete list of the adjusting items and associated reconciliation from GAAP has been provided in Table 1a in the section titled “Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures.” Adjusted operating income for the fourth quarter of 2023 was up 14% sequentially and up 18% year-over-year.

Depreciation and amortization for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $274 million.

Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $1,091 million, which excludes adjustments totaling $165 million before tax. See Table 1b in the section titled “Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures.” Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was up 11% sequentially and up 15% year-over-year.

The sequential increase in adjusted operating income and adjusted EBITDA was driven by higher volume in IET and price in OFSE, partially offset by higher research and development (R&D) spend in IET. The year-over-year increase in adjusted operating income and adjusted EBITDA was driven by volume and pricing in both segments and structural cost-out initiatives, partially offset by cost inflation in both segments, and higher equipment mix and higher R&D spend in IET.

Corporate costs were $88 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, down 7% sequentially and down 12% year-over-year.

Other Financial Items

Remaining Performance Obligations (RPO) in the fourth quarter ended at $33.5 billion, an increase of $1.0 billion from the third quarter of 2023. OFSE RPO was $3.5 billion, down 2% sequentially, while IET RPO was $29.9 billion, up 4% sequentially. Within IET RPO, Gas Technology Equipment RPO was $12.1 billion and Gas Technology Services RPO was $14.8 billion.

Income tax expense in the fourth quarter of 2023 was $72 million.

Other non-operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2023 was $84 million. Included in other non-operating loss were net mark-to-market loss in fair value for certain equity investments of $84 million.

GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.43. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.51. Excluded from adjusted diluted earnings per share were all items listed in Table 1a as well as the “other adjustments (non-operating)” found in Table 1c in the section entitled “Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Cash flow from operating activities was $932 million for the fourth quarter of 2023. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter was $633 million. A reconciliation from GAAP has been provided in Table 1d in the section entitled “Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Capital expenditures, net of proceeds from disposal of assets, were $298 million for the fourth quarter of 2023. Capital expenditures, net of proceeds from disposal of assets, were $221 million for OFSE, and $71 million for IET.

During the fourth quarter, we extended our $3 billion revolving credit facility by four years, which now has a maturity in November 2028, and used available cash to pay down the $650 million of senior notes that matured in December 2023.

Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management provides non-GAAP financial measures because it believes such measures are widely accepted financial indicators used by investors and analysts to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance (including adjusted operating income; EBITDA; EBITDA margin; adjusted EBITDA; adjusted net income attributable to Baker Hughes; and adjusted diluted earnings per share) and liquidity (free cash flow) and that these measures may be used by investors to make informed investment decisions. Management believes that the exclusion of certain identified items from several key operating performance measures enables us to evaluate our operations more effectively, to identify underlying trends in the business, and to establish operational goals for certain management compensation purposes. Management also believes that free cash flow is an important supplemental measure of our cash performance but should not be considered as a measure of residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities presented in accordance with GAAP.

This news release (and oral statements made regarding the subjects of this release) may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (each a “forward-looking statement”). Forward-looking statements concern future circumstances and results and other statements that are not historical facts and are sometimes identified by the words “may,” “will,” “should,” “potential,” “intend,” “expect,” “would,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “overestimate,” “underestimate,” “believe,” “could,” “project,” “predict,” “continue,” “target”, “goal” or other similar words or expressions. There are many risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are also affected by the risk factors described in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the annual period ended December 31, 2022; the Company’s subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2023, June 30, 2023 and September 30, 2023; and those set forth from time to time in other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The documents are available through the Company’s website at: www.investors.bakerhughes.com or through the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering and Analysis Retrieval (EDGAR) system at: www.sec.gov. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, except as required by law.

Our expectations regarding our business outlook and business plans, the business plans of our customers; oil and natural gas market conditions, cost and availability of resources, economic, legal and regulatory conditions, and other matters are only our forecasts regarding these matters.

These forward-looking statements, including forecasts, may be substantially different from actual results, which are affected by many risks, along with the following risk factors and the timing of any of these risk factors:

Economic and political conditions – the impact of worldwide economic conditions and rising inflation; the effect that declines in credit availability may have on worldwide economic growth and demand for hydrocarbons; foreign currency exchange fluctuations and changes in the capital markets in locations where we operate; and the impact of government disruptions and sanctions.

Orders and RPO – our ability to execute on orders and RPO in accordance with agreed specifications, terms and conditions and convert those orders and RPO to revenue and cash.

Oil and gas market conditions – the level of petroleum industry exploration, development and production expenditures; the price of, volatility in pricing of, and the demand for crude oil and natural gas; drilling activity; drilling permits for and regulation of the shelf and the deepwater drilling; excess productive capacity; crude and product inventories; liquefied natural gas supply and demand; seasonal and other adverse weather conditions that affect the demand for energy; severe weather conditions, such as tornadoes and hurricanes, that affect exploration and production activities; Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) policy and the adherence by OPEC nations to their OPEC production quotas.

Terrorism and geopolitical risks – war, military action, terrorist activities or extended periods of international conflict, particularly involving any petroleum-producing or consuming regions, including Russia and Ukraine; and the recent conflict in the Middle East; labor disruptions, civil unrest or security conditions where we operate; potentially burdensome taxation, expropriation of assets by governmental action; cybersecurity risks and cyber incidents or attacks; epidemic outbreaks.
