For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, revenues were $89.3 million, a decrease of 75.1 percent compared with $358.5 million in the second quarter of 2019. Revenues decreased due to lower activity levels and pricing compared to the second quarter of the prior year. Operating loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $37.5 million compared to operating profit of $8.4 million in the same period of the prior year. Adjusted operating loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $35.9 million.1 Net loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $25.1 million, or $0.12 loss per share, compared to net income of $6.2 million, or $0.03 earnings per share, in the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted net loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $22.3 million, or $0.10 adjusted loss per share.2 Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the second quarter of 2020 was negative $19.4 million, compared to EBITDA of $51.2 million in the same period of the prior year.3 Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 was negative $17.8 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, revenues decreased to $333.1 million compared to $693.2 million last year. Net loss for the six-month period was $185.5 million, or $0.87 loss per share, compared to net income of $5.4 million, or $0.02 diluted earnings per share in the same period last year.

Cost of revenues during the second quarter of 2020 was $80.0 million, or 89.6 percent of revenues, compared to $265.1 million, or 73.9 percent of revenues, during the second quarter of 2019. Cost of revenues declined primarily due to decreases in expenses consistent with lower activity levels and RPC's cost reduction initiatives. Cost of revenues as a percentage of revenues increased because of the negative leverage of these expenses over significantly lower revenues. This percentage increase was slightly offset by lower materials and supplies expenses as a percentage of revenues caused by a shift in pressure pumping job mix.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $28.8 million in the second quarter of 2020 compared to $43.3 million in the second quarter of 2019. These expenses decreased due to lower employment costs, primarily the result of cost reduction initiatives during the previous several quarters. Depreciation and amortization decreased to $19.6 million in the second quarter of 2020 compared to $42.9 million in the second quarter of the prior year. Depreciation and amortization decreased significantly primarily because of the asset impairment charges recorded last quarter which decreased RPC's depreciable property, plant and equipment.

Discussion of Sequential Quarterly Financial Results

RPC's revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 decreased by $154.5 million, or 63.4 percent, compared with the prior quarter due to the significant decline in industry activity that began late in the first quarter. Cost of revenues during the second quarter of 2020 decreased by $101.9 million, or 56.0 percent, due to lower materials and supplies and fuel expenses caused by decreased activity, and lower employment costs resulting from headcount and pay reductions. As a percentage of revenues, cost of revenues increased significantly, from 74.6 percent in the first quarter of 2020 to 89.6 percent in the second quarter. RPC's operating loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $37.5 million, compared with an operating loss of $218.7 million in the first quarter. RPC's adjusted operating loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $35.9 million, compared with an adjusted operating loss of $13.2 million in the first quarter. 1 Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 was negative $17.8 million compared to adjusted EBITDA of $25.8 million in the first quarter. 3

Management Commentary

"The average U.S. domestic rig count during the second quarter of 2020 was 392, a 60.4 percent decrease compared to the same period in 2019, and a 50.1 percent decrease compared to the first quarter of 2020," stated Richard A. Hubbell, RPC's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The average price of oil during the second quarter was $27.32 per barrel, a 54.4 percent decrease compared to the same period in 2019, and a 42.2 percent decrease compared to the first quarter of 2020. The average price of natural gas during the second quarter was $1.71 per Mcf, a 33.5 percent decrease compared to the same period in 2019, and a 10.9 percent decrease compared to the first quarter of 2020. 

"U.S. oilfield drilling activity during the second quarter of 2020 declined to historic lows, and we believe completion activity declined at an even greater rate. RPC's revenues declined at a greater rate than the rig count due to our exposure to the completions market and continued pronounced weakness in pressure pumping. As we begin the third quarter, we believe domestic oilfield activity has passed the trough. While we anticipate industry activity will modestly increase during the second half of 2020, we are unsure whether this is the start of a sustained recovery. As a result, RPC will continue to focus on cost management, pricing discipline and capital expenditure controls.

"We are pleased to report a cash balance of $145.4 million at the end of the second quarter, an increase of $62.8 million compared to the end of the first quarter. Our cash balance is a result of effective working capital and capital expenditure management. We are fortunate to be in a strong financial position as we navigate this difficult environment," concluded Hubbell.

Summary of Segment Operating Performance

RPC manages two operating segments - Technical Services and Support Services.

Technical Services includes RPC's oilfield service lines that utilize people and equipment to perform value-added completion, production and maintenance services directly to a customer's well. These services are generally directed toward improving the flow of oil and natural gas from producing formations or to address well control issues. The Technical Services segment includes downhole tools and services, pressure pumping, coiled tubing, hydraulic workover services, nitrogen, surface pressure control equipment, well control, and fishing tool operations.

Support Services includes RPC's oilfield service lines that provide equipment for customer use or services to assist customer operations. The equipment and services offered include rental of tubulars and related tools, pipe handling, inspection and storage services, and oilfield training services.

Technical Services quarterly revenues decreased by 76.2 percent compared to the same period of the prior year due to significantly lower activity and pricing. On a sequential basis, Technical Services revenues decreased by 64.6 percent compared to the prior quarter due to significantly lower activity levels and pricing. Support Services revenues decreased by 57.2 percent during the quarter compared to the same period of the prior year. On a sequential basis, Support Services revenues decreased by 45.5 percent compared to the prior quarter. Technical Services incurred a higher operating loss (without impairment charges) during the second quarter of 2020 compared to the prior quarter. Support Services incurred an operating loss in the second quarter of 2020 compared to an operating profit in the prior quarter due to significantly lower activity.

RPC provides a broad range of specialized oilfield services and equipment primarily to independent and major oilfield companies engaged in the exploration, production and development of oil and gas properties throughout the United States, including the Gulf of Mexico, mid-continent, southwest, Appalachian and Rocky Mountain regions, and in selected international markets. RPC's investor website can be found at rpc.net.

Certain statements and information included in this press release constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including all statements that look forward in time or express management's beliefs, expectations or hopes. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of RPC to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements, including the statements we believe completion activity declined at a rate greater than drilling activity, that domestic oilfield activity has passed the trough, that industry activity will modestly increase during the second half of 2020, and that we are unsure whether this is the start of a sustained recovery. Such risks include changes in general global business and economic conditions, including the decline in prices of oil and natural gas; the combined impact of the OPEC disputes and the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations; credit risks associated with collections of our accounts receivable from customers experiencing challenging business conditions; drilling activity and rig count; risks of reduced availability or increased costs of both labor and raw materials used in providing our services; the impact on our operations if we are unable to comply with regulatory and environmental laws; turmoil in the financial markets and the potential difficulty to fund our capital needs; the potentially high cost of capital required to fund our capital needs; the impact of the level of unconventional exploration and production activities may cease or change in nature so as to reduce demand for our services; the actions of the OPEC cartel; the ultimate impact of current and potential political unrest and armed conflict in the oil production regions of the world, which could impact drilling activity; adverse weather conditions in oil and gas producing regions, including the Gulf of Mexico; competition in the oil and gas industry; an inability to implement price increases; risks of international operations; and our reliance upon large customers. Additional discussion of factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from management's projections, forecasts, estimates and expectations is contained in RPC's Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Appendix A

RPC, Inc. has used the non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted operating loss in today's earnings release, and anticipates using this non-GAAP financial measure in today's earnings conference call. This measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating loss, or other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. 

Management believes that presenting the financial measure of adjusted operating loss enables us to compare our operating performance consistently over various time periods without regard to non-recurring items.

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either 1) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows, or 2) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Set forth below is a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure with its most comparable GAAP measures.  This reconciliation also appears on RPC, Inc.'s investor website, which can be found on the Internet at rpc.net.

Appendix C

RPC has used the non-GAAP financial measures of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) in today's earnings release, and anticipates using EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA in today's earnings conference call. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net loss or other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. 

RPC uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance because it allows us to compare performance consistently over various periods without regard to changes in our capital structure or non-recurring items. We are also required to use EBITDA to report compliance with financial covenants under our revolving credit facility.

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either 1) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows, or 2) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Set forth below is a reconciliation of net loss to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, the most comparable GAAP measures.  This reconciliation also appears on RPC's investor website, which can be found on the Internet at rpc.net.
