DNOW Reports First Quarter 2024 Results


DNOW Inc. (NYSE: DNOW) announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

First Quarter 2024 Highlights

David Cherechinsky, President and CEO of DNOW, added, "I am incredibly pleased with the progress we made this quarter, generating strong free cash flow of $80 million towards our $150 million full-year target, which we expect could now approach $200 million in 2024.

We welcomed Whitco Supply to the DNOW family, one of our largest acquisitions, and still ended the quarter debt-free with $188 million in cash. The addition of Whitco's talented team, rich culture and technical expertise will enhance our service levels and capabilities, enabling us to better support our customers' midstream and energy evolution investments.

Despite the slow start to the first quarter, evidenced by lower U.S. well completions and historically low natural gas prices, we are encouraged by our prospects for the remainder of the year and are upgrading our 2024 full-year outlook to now grow revenue in the mid-to-high single digit percentage range, and sequentially we expect second quarter revenue to increase ten to fifteen percent, assuming increased market activity.

With a solid balance sheet, an expanding diversified customer base, the best people in the business and a proactive approach to seizing value-enhancing acquisition opportunities, I am excited about our future."

Prior to the earnings conference call a presentation titled "DNOW First Quarter 2024 Key Takeaways" will be available on the Company's Investor Relations website.
