Edmonton, Alberta – McCoy Global Inc. (“McCoy,” “McCoy Global” or “the Corporation”) (TSX:MCB) today announced its operational and financial results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018.
“We have been disciplined in managing our business and implementing cost reductions and operating efficiencies during the extended downcycle for the global energy industry. In 2018 we experienced some strengthening of industry fundamentals and delivered solid financial results, including two consecutive quarters of positive earnings and adjusted EBITDA to close out the year,” said Jim Rakievich, President and CEO of McCoy Global.

“For 2019 we will continue to manage the business with the focus on generating positive cash flow and adjusted EBITDA and maintaining our strong balance sheet despite the ongoing uncertain market fundamentals. Over the latter half of 2018, McCoy invested in working capital to support the sharp increase in customer demand. With activity levels expected to stabilize heading into 2019, generating operating cashflows and increasing working capital efficiency is another key priority for the Corporation going forward.

“I thank our employees for their focus on introducing new technologies and finding creative ways to partner with customers while still tightly managing the costs in our business. Achievements in the past year included commercializing the new 10” 40K hydraulic power tong in response to the changing land market in North America and our next generation McCoy Torque-Turn System (MTT), as well as developing a comprehensive technology strategy to address customer challenges. We possess the engineering know-how and expertise to implement the data-driven technology customers are demanding in all markets, and specifically in offshore and international operations. Organic growth via McCoy’s increased investments in new data driven technologies will also remain a priority.”

Quarterly Financial Summary
Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $13.5 million, an increase of $3.4 million from the fourth quarter of 2017 due to strengthening industry fundamentals for the majority of 2018. The increase was
driven by an increase in capital equipment order intake from the Eastern Hemisphere coupled with revenues from the product launch of the 10” 40K hydraulic power tong for the North American land market.

Gross profit as a percentage of revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was 31%, an increase of 45 percentage points from the fourth quarter of 2017. The significant improvement was due to increased production through-put and cost reductions realized as a result of the restructuring initiatives implemented in 2017, in addition to a recovery for excess and obsolete inventory of $0.7 million in 2018 (2017 - $3.7 million charge).

G&A expense for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $2.0 million, a decrease of $0.3 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. As a percentage of revenue, G&A expense decreased by 8%, as McCoy’s
current overhead cost structure can be leveraged for revenue growth. Sales & Marketing expense for the three months ended December 31, 2018 decreased by $0.4 million from the fourth quarter of 2017. As a percentage of revenue this was a 5% decrease, resulting from restructuring efforts, which saw the consolidation of the sales force in key regions globally and allowed for the realization of several efficiencies R&D expenditures for the three months ended December 31, 2018 were $0.8 million, a small increase of $0.2 million from the fourth quarter of 2017.
