Edmonton, Alberta – McCoy Global Inc. (“McCoy”, “McCoy Global” or “the Corporation”) (TSX:MCB) today announced its operational and financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

“We made significant progress in executing on McCoy’s digital technology strategy and developing new products to better serve our customers in the third quarter. We further strengthened our market position during the period by acquiring DrawWorks, a company that designs, tests and sells tubular running technologies and has developed a modular, mechanically operated casing running tool. The acquisition enables us to deliver enhanced solutions to our customers around the globe by integrating our data-driven technology platform with DrawWorks’ equipment offerings,” said Jim Rakievich, President and CEO of McCoy Global.
“We also continue to be disciplined in how we manage our business activities simultaneously to these advancements. McCoy increased revenue, gross profit, net earnings and Adjusted EBITDA1 year over year in the third quarter. Although we are entering the year’s fourth quarter with a solid backlog2 of work, we are also experiencing challenging market conditions, particularly in the US land market. Offsetting these challenges is the gradual recovery we are experiencing in international and offshore markets which, coupled with McCoy’s engineering capabilities and technology offerings, provides an area of opportunity for us.”
In summary, our near-term agenda will be:
- continued capital discipline and overhead cost reduction;
- development of the technology advancements that will define our future;
- commercialization of recently developed products, following completion of field trials; and
- continued focus on supporting our customers.

1 EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as net earnings (loss), before depreciation of property, plant and equipment; amortization of intangible assets; income tax expense (recovery); and finance charges, net. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as net earnings (loss), before: depreciation of property, plant and equipment; amortization of intangible assets; income tax expense (recovery); finance charges, net; provisions for (recovery of) excess and obsolete inventory; other (gains) losses, net; restructuring charges; share-based compensation; and impairment charges. The Corporation reports on EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because they are key measures used by management to evaluate performance. The Corporation believes Adjusted EBITDA assists investors in assessing McCoy Global’s current operating performance on a consistent basis without regard to non-cash, unusual (i.e. infrequent and not considered part of ongoing operations), or non-recurring items that can vary significantly depending on accounting methods or non-operating factors. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered an alternative to net (loss) earnings in measuring McCoy Global’s performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning and is therefore not likely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers.
2 McCoy Global defines backlog as orders that have a high certainty of being delivered and is measured on the basis of a firm customer commitment, such as the receipt of a purchase order. Customers may default on or cancel such commitments, but may be secured by a deposit and/or require reimbursement by the customer upon default or cancellation. Backlog reflects likely future revenues; however, cancellations or reductions may occur and there can be no assurance that backlog amounts will ultimately be realized as revenue, or that the Corporation will earn a profit on backlog once fulfilled. Expected delivery dates for orders recorded in backlog historically spanned from one to six months.
3 The book-to-bill ratio is a measure of the amount of net sales orders received to revenues recognized and billed in a set period of time. The ratio is an indicator of customer demand and sales order processing times. The book- to-bill ratio is not a GAAP measure and therefore the definition and calculation of the ratio will vary among other issuers reporting the book-to-bill ratio. McCoy Global calculates the book-to-bill ratio as net sales orders taken in the reporting period divided by the revenues reported for the same reporting period.
