LONGMONT, Colo., April 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enservco Corporation (NYSE American: ENSV), a diversified national provider of specialized well-site services to the domestic onshore conventional and unconventional oil and gas industries, today announced its 2023 Fourth Quarter and full year financial results.

Rich Murphy, the Company’s CEO and Chairman stated “We continued to make improvements highlighted by another improved quarter for our Company, despite unseasonably warmer weather over much of the United States. The fourth quarter heating season had 13% fewer cold days, according to the U.S. Gas Association, yet our completion services revenue increased by double digits for both the quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year results. Year-over-year increases to our completions revenues were largely offset by decreases in our production services revenues, related in part to the closure of our historically unprofitable North Dakota operations. Annual revenues and demand for our production services in our other service areas continued to be strong in 2023.”

Murphy continued “Our gross profit margins continue to improve, and our general and administrative expenses continue to decrease on a comparative basis. Our EBITDA loss continues to decrease as we execute on our long-stated goals of building a more sustainable and profitable business model, with reduced debt. Our total debt decreased to $8.7 million at year end 2023 from $12.0 million at the end of 2022 – a 28% decrease. We also recently announced entering into an agreement for an acquisition with Buckshot Trucking that we believe, if closed, would be transformative to the Company by adding scale, improving margins, and reducing seasonality. As previously released, 2024 started off with significant improvements in our seasonal revenues. We look forward to sharing more information on the transaction and quarter one results in a few weeks.”

2023 Fourth Quarter Results

Total revenue in the fourth quarter came in at $6.5 million versus $6.5 million in the same quarter last year.

Production services revenue, which includes hot oiling and acidizing services, decreased 16% to $2.2 million from $2.6 million in the same quarter last year, due in part to the aforementioned closure of our North Dakota operations. Production services generated a segment profit of $1.0 million compared to a segment profit of $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. Completion services revenue, which is primarily frac water heating services, increased 10% in the fourth quarter to $4.3 million from $3.9 million in the prior year quarter. Completion services generated a segment profit of $0.1 million compared to a profit of $0.7 million in the same quarter last year.

Operating profit improved by 14% or $133,000 versus the same period last year.

The Company’s net loss increased by $0.2 million to $1.9 million from $1.7 million in the prior year. The Company wrote off goodwill recorded several years ago associated with prior business acquisitions in Q4 of 2023, amounting to $0.5 million, which negatively impacted the quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA was positive $62,000 for the fourth quarter of 2024, versus negative $77,000 in the same quarter of the prior year.

Full Year Results

Full year revenue came in at $22.1 million for 2023, versus $21.6 million in full year 2022, an increase of 2%.

Production services revenue decreased 6% to $10.5 million in 2023 from $11.2 million in 2022, due in part to the aforementioned closure of our North Dakota operations. Production services generated a segment profit of $1.3 million in 2023 compared to a segment profit of $0.7 million in 2022. Completion services revenue increased 11% in 2023 to $11.5 million from $10.4 million in the prior year. The increase was primarily the result of increased volume due to favorable weather conditions in the first quarter of 2023, coupled with the implementation of price increases in the fourth quarter of 2023, most notably in our Colorado region. Completion services generated a 2023 segment profit of $1.0 million compared to a profit of $0.7 million last year.

Gross profit improved by $0.9 million to $2.3 million in 2023 from $1.4 million for the full year of 2022, an increase of 61%.

General and administrative costs decreased by $0.4 million to $4.5 million in 2023 versus $4.9 million for the full year of 2022.

Net loss increased to $8.5 million in 2023, compared to $5.6 million in 2022. This includes a $4.3 million non-cash gain on debt extinguishment recorded in 2022. Without this non-cash charge, the net loss decreased by $1.4 million in 2023 compared to 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA came in at a loss of $1.5 million for the full year of 2023, compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of $2.7 million in 2022, a year-over-year improvement of $1.2 million or 46%.

ABOUT ENSERVCO

Enservco provides a range of oilfield services through its various operating subsidiaries, including hot oiling, acidizing, frac water heating, and related services. The Company has a broad geographic footprint covering major domestic oil and gas basins across the United States. Additional information is available at www.enservco.com. On March 20, 2024, the Company announced an agreement to purchase Buckshot Trucking LLC, an energy logistics provider in multiple key oil and gas basins (the “Buckshot Acquisition”). The Buckshot Acquisition is scheduled to close in the second quarter of 2024. When closed, the Buckshot Acquisition would provide Enservco with a growing business that is not weather dependent, allow the Company to enter steady year-round logistics, provide an expanded operating footprint, and improve cash flow visibility.

*Note on Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables include a discussion of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to the results provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The term “EBITDA” refers to a financial measure that we define as earnings (net income or loss) plus or minus net interest taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from EBITDA stock-based compensation and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing Enservco’s operating performance (as further described in the attached financial schedules). None of these non-GAAP financial measures are recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or any other GAAP measure. We have reconciled Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net loss in the table below. We intend to continue to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting.
