Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Results and Announces Continued Shareholder Returns for First Quarter 2024


Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure, Inc. (NYSE:SOI) ("Solaris" or the "Company"), today announced fourth quarter and full year 2023 financial and operational results.

"2023 was a strong year for Solaris on multiple fronts. We generated positive free cash flow, raised our dividend per share twice, returned $47 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases and grew Adjusted EBITDA by 15% from the prior year as we built a fleet of new equipment and deployed more Solaris systems on the well sites we service," Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bill Zartler commented.

"Looking to 2024, we expect to generate significantly higher free cash flow as we harvest cash from the organic investments we made over the last couple of years. We believe this additional cash flow should support continued shareholder returns and maintain our healthy balance sheet, while creating optionality in our long-term strategy for capital allocation, including organic and inorganic investments."

Shareholder Returns

On October 25, 2023, Solaris' Board of Directors approved a cash dividend of $0.12 per share of Class A common stock, which was paid on December 11, 2023 to holders of record as of December 1, 2023, and a distribution of $0.12 per unit for holders of units in Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure, LLC ("Solaris LLC," and such holders "Solaris LLC Unitholders"), subject to the same payment and record date, or approximately $5 million in aggregate to shareholders. This represented a 9% raise in Solaris' per-share dividend as compared to the third quarter of 2023 and the third dividend raise in Solaris' history since initiation in 2018.

On February 19, 2024, Solaris's Board of Directors approved a first quarter 2024 cash dividend of $0.12 per share of Class A common stock, to be paid on March 21, 2024 to holders of record as of March 11, 2024, and a distribution of $0.12 per unit to Solaris LLC Unitholders, which is subject to the same payment and record dates, or approximately $5 million in aggregate to shareholders.

Solaris repurchased 85,278 shares during the fourth quarter of 2023 for $0.7 million. From January 19, 2024 to February 9, 2024, Solaris repurchased an additional 1.1 million shares for approximately $8.1 million. Approximately $15 million remains in the current share repurchase authorization. Since initiating the repurchase authorization in the first quarter of 2023, Solaris has repurchased a total of 4.3 million shares of Class A common stock.

Pro forma for the announced first quarter 2024 dividend and share repurchases to date, Solaris has returned approximately $172 million cumulatively to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases since 2018, of which $47 million was returned in 2023. These shareholder returns also reflect a 20% increase in Solaris' dividend per share since initiation and an approximately 9% net reduction in total shares outstanding over the last five years.

Free Cash Flow, Capital Expenditures and Liquidity

Free cash flow (defined as net cash provided by operating activities less investment in property, plant and equipment) after asset disposals was positive $16 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, including a working capital source of $4 million and capital expenditures of $7 million.

Capital expenditures in the fourth quarter of 2023 were approximately $7 million, down over 50% from the third quarter of 2023, and were primarily related to manufacturing of top fill systems. Capital expenditures for full year 2023 were $64 million and Solaris expects full year 2024 capital expenditures to be less than $15 million, an approximately 75% year over year reduction.

As of December 31, 2023, Solaris had $6 million of cash on the balance sheet. Solaris reduced net borrowings on the credit facility by $7 million and ended the fourth quarter of 2023 with $30 million in borrowings outstanding and $47 million of liquidity. Net debt (defined as total debt outstanding less cash) at the end of the fourth quarter of 2023 declined to $24 million compared to $34 million at the end of the third quarter of 2023.

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Review

Net income was $7 million, or $0.14 per diluted Class A share, for fourth quarter 2023, compared to third quarter 2023 net income of $8 million, or $0.16 per diluted Class A share, and fourth quarter 2022 net income of $8 million, or $0.15 per diluted Class A share. Adjusted pro forma net income for fourth quarter 2023 was $7 million, or $0.15 per fully diluted share, compared to third quarter 2023 adjusted pro forma net income of $9 million, or $0.19 per fully diluted share, and fourth quarter 2022 adjusted pro forma net income of $10 million, or $0.22 per fully diluted share.

Revenue was $63 million for fourth quarter 2023, which was down 9% from third quarter 2023 and down 25% from fourth quarter 2022. Adjusted EBITDA for fourth quarter 2023 was $21 million, which was down 9% from third quarter 2023 and down 7% from fourth quarter 2022. The sequential decrease in revenue was driven by decreases in lower-margin ancillary last mile logistics services activity and frac crews followed. The sequential decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by the decline in Solaris system deployments related to fewer frac crews followed, as the average industry frac crew count softened into the end of 2023.

During the fourth quarter of 2023, Solaris earned revenue on 103 fully utilized systems, which includes sand systems, top fill systems and AutoBlendtm systems. Total fully utilized systems were down 5% from third quarter 2023 and down 6% from fourth quarter 2022. Solaris followed an average of 64 industry frac crews on a fully utilized basis in the fourth quarter of 2023, which was down 4% from 67 frac crews followed in the third quarter of 2023.

See "About Non-GAAP Measures" below for additional detail and reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP measures in the accompanying financial tables.

Full Year 2023 Financial Review

Net income was $39 million, or $0.78 per diluted Class A share, for full year 2023, compared to 2022 net income of $34 million, or $0.64 per diluted Class A share. Adjusted pro forma net income for full year 2023 was $37 million, or $0.83 per fully diluted share, compared to 2022 adjusted pro forma net income of $36 million, or $0.76 per fully diluted share.

Revenue was $293 million for full year 2023, which was down 8% from 2022. Adjusted EBITDA for full year 2023 was $97 million, which was up 15% from 2022. The sequential decrease in revenue was driven by a decrease in lower-margin ancillary last mile logistics services activity, partially offset by an increase in Solaris system deployments. The higher system deployments drove the sequential increase in Adjusted EBITDA.

About Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to financial results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), this news release presents non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations because they reflect the core operating results of our businesses and help facilitate comparisons of operating performance across periods. Although management believes the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures are good tools for internal use and the investment community in evaluating Solaris' overall financial performance, the foregoing non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included in the accompanying financial tables.

SOLARIS OILFIELD INFRASTRUCTURE, INC AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION AND CALCULATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL MEASURES
(In thousands)
(Unaudited)
 

 

EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA 

 

We view EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as important indicators of performance. We use them to assess our results of operations because it allows us, our investors and our lenders to compare our operating performance on a consistent basis across periods by removing the effects of varying levels of interest expense due to our capital structure, depreciation and amortization due to our asset base and other items that impact the comparability of financial results from period to period. We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we believe they provide useful information regarding trends and other factors affecting our business in addition to measures calculated under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). 

 

We define EBITDA as net income, plus (i) depreciation and amortization expense, (ii) interest expense and (iii) income tax expense, including franchise taxes. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus (i) stock-based compensation expense and (ii) certain non-cash items and extraordinary, unusual or non-recurring gains, losses or expenses. 

 

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for an analysis of our results of operation and financial condition as reported in accordance with GAAP. Net income is the GAAP measure most directly comparable to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered alternative to net income presented in accordance with GAAP. Because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, our definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility. 

 

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods indicated.

ADJUSTED PRO FORMA NET INCOME AND ADJUSTED PRO FORMA EARNINGS PER FULLY DILUTED SHARE 

 

Adjusted pro forma net income represents net income attributable to Solaris assuming the full exchange of all outstanding membership interests in Solaris LLC not held by Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure, Inc. for shares of Class A common stock, adjusted for certain non-recurring items that the Company doesn't believe directly reflect its core operations and may not be indicative of ongoing business operations. Adjusted pro forma earnings per fully diluted share is calculated by dividing adjusted pro forma net income by the weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding, assuming the full exchange of all outstanding units of Solaris LLC ("Solaris LLC Units"), after giving effect to the dilutive effect of outstanding equity-based awards. 

 

When used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, adjusted pro forma net income and adjusted pro forma earnings per fully diluted share are supplemental measures of operating performance that the Company believes are useful measures to evaluate performance period over period and relative to its competitors. By assuming the full exchange of all outstanding Solaris LLC Units, the Company believes these measures facilitate comparisons with other companies that have different organizational and tax structures, as well as comparisons period over period because it eliminates the effect of any changes in net income attributable to Solaris as a result of increases in its ownership of Solaris LLC, which are unrelated to the Company's operating performance, and excludes items that are non-recurring or may not be indicative of ongoing operating performance. 

 

Adjusted pro forma net income and adjusted pro forma earnings per fully diluted share are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies due to different methods of calculation. Presentation of adjusted pro forma net income and adjusted pro forma earnings per fully diluted share should not be considered alternatives to net income and earnings per share, as determined under GAAP. While these measures are useful in evaluating the Company's performance, it does not account for the earnings attributable to the non-controlling interest holders and therefore does not provide a complete understanding of the net income attributable to Solaris. Adjusted pro forma net income and adjusted pro forma earnings per fully diluted share should be evaluated in conjunction with GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of adjusted pro forma net income to net income attributable to Solaris, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and the computation of adjusted pro forma earnings per fully diluted share are set forth below.
