Management Commentary and Outlook

“The resilience of our business model and dedication of our team translated into excellent fourth quarter and full year financial results,” said Brad Childers, Archrock’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Compression market fundamentals continued to stabilize, we generated a strong contract operations gross margin, posted flat aftermarket services revenue and extended an additional $300 million in debt maturities to 2028 at a record low yield for the company of 5.183%.

“Reflecting on 2020, we adapted quickly to protect the value of our natural gas compression franchise, maximize our near-term performance and position the business to emerge even stronger from this downturn. Through our aggressive cost-out actions, including the sharp reduction in new equipment capital, enhanced field operating efficiency, strategic asset sales and a substantial reduction in our run-rate SG&A, we delivered flat Adjusted EBITDA compared to 2019 and generated substantial free cash flow. This enabled us to not only reduce our debt by $155 million, but also prioritize shareholder returns through our attractive and well-covered dividend program.

“We are optimistic that commodity demand will begin to recover in 2021 from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are already seeing positive trends in commodity prices, upstream capital spending and rig counts, all leading indicators for natural gas production. The compression infrastructure we provide remains critical to bringing natural gas to end markets and we expect demand for our services to rebound as this recovery takes hold.

“Our existing idle capacity provides us with meaningful capital allocation flexibility as we satisfy increased customer commitments later this year. We will continue to do what Archrock does best—offer excellent customer service, operate safely and efficiently and manage our financial position with discipline. These strategic principles provide a foundation for meaningful free cash flow generation, continuation of our capital allocation priorities, strong shareholder returns and a sustainable future,” concluded Childers.

Contract Operations

For the fourth quarter of 2020, contract operations segment revenue totaled $168.8 million compared to $204.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Gross margin was $110.2 million, reflecting a gross margin percentage of 65%, up from 63% in the prior year quarter. Total operating horsepower at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020 was 3.4 million compared to 3.9 million at the end of the prior year quarter. Utilization at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020 was 82% compared to 89% at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019.

Aftermarket Services

For the fourth quarter of 2020, aftermarket services segment revenue totaled $30.6 million compared to $41.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 as customers continued to defer maintenance activities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gross margin of $3.8 million compared to $6.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Gross margin percentage of 13% compared to 15% in the prior year quarter.

Balance Sheet

Long-term debt was $1.7 billion at December 31, 2020, reflecting net debt repayment of $38.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2020. Our leverage ratio was 4.16x, down from 4.23x at the end of the fourth quarter of 2019. Our available liquidity totaled $444.1 million as of December 31, 2020.

On December 17, 2020, we completed a private offering of $300 million of 6.25% senior unsecured notes due 2028. Net proceeds were used to repay outstanding borrowings under our revolving credit facility. The issue price of 104.875% of face value equated to a yield of 5.183%.

Quarterly Dividend

Our Board of Directors recently declared a quarterly dividend of $0.145 per share of common stock, or $0.58 per share on an annualized basis, resulting in dividend coverage in the fourth quarter of 2020 of 2.5x. The dividend was paid on February 16, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on February 8, 2021.

2021 Annual Guidance

Archrock is providing annual guidance as listed below. All figures are in thousands, except percentages and ratios:

        
  Full Year 2021 Guidance
   Low  High 
        
Net income (1 $34,000 $74,000 
Adjusted EBITDA (2)  335,000  375,000 
Cash available for dividend (3) (4)  182,000  216,000 
        
Segment       
Contract operations revenue $645,000 $670,000 
Contract operations gross margin percentage  63% 64%
Aftermarket services revenue $145,000 $160,000 
Aftermarket services gross margin percentage  16% 17%
        
Selling, general and administrative $112,000 $109,000 
        
Capital expenditures       
Growth capital expenditures $30,000 $50,000 
Maintenance capital expenditures  40,000  45,000 
Other capital expenditures  10,000  11,000 


(1)    2021 annual guidance for net income does not include the impact of long-lived and other asset impairment because due to its nature it cannot be accurately forecasted. Long-lived and other asset impairment does not impact Adjusted EBITDA or cash available for dividend, however it is a reconciling item between these measures and net income. Long-lived and other asset impairment for the years ended 2020 and 2019 was $79.6 million and $44.7 million, respectively.
(2)    Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because this non-GAAP measure, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provides a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses this non-GAAP measure as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance, comparability measure and performance measure for period-to-period comparisons.
(3)    Management uses cash available for dividend as a supplemental performance measure to compute the coverage ratio of estimated cash flows to planned dividends.
(4)    A forward-looking estimate of cash provided by operating activities is not provided because certain items necessary to estimate cash provided by operating activities, including changes in assets and liabilities, are not estimable at this time. Changes in assets and liabilities were $19.8 million and $10.4 million for the years ended 2020 and 2019, respectively.

(1)   2021 annual guidance for net income does not include the impact of long-lived and other asset impairment because due to its nature, it cannot be accurately forecasted. Long-lived and other asset impairment does not impact Adjusted EBITDA or cash available for dividend, however it is a reconciling item between these measures and net income. Long-lived and other asset impairment for the years ended 2020 and 2019 was $79.6 million and $44.7 million, respectively.
(2)   Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because this non-GAAP measure, when viewed with our GAAP results and accompanying reconciliations, provides a more complete understanding of our performance than GAAP results alone. Management uses this non-GAAP measure as a supplemental measure to review current period operating performance, comparability measure and performance measure for period-to-period comparisons.
(3)   Management uses cash available for dividend as a supplemental performance measure to compute the coverage ratio of estimated cash flows to planned dividends.
(4)   A forward-looking estimate of cash provided by operating activities is not provided because certain items necessary to estimate cash provided by operating activities, including changes in assets and liabilities, are not estimable at this time. Changes in assets and liabilities were $19.8 million and $10.4 million for the years ended 2020 and 2019, respectively.
