NOV VARCO NET LOSS $2.5 BLN
NOV - February 4, 2021 - HOUSTON-- NOV Inc. (NYSE: NOV) today reported fourth quarter 2020 revenues of $1.33 billion, a decrease of four percent compared to the third quarter of 2020 and a decrease of 42 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $347 million, or -26.1 percent of sales, which included non-cash, pre-tax charges (“Other Items”, see Other Corporate Items for additional detail) of $236 million. Adjusted EBITDA (operating profit excluding depreciation, amortization, and Other Items) decreased $54 million sequentially to $17 million, or 1.3 percent of sales.
Revenues for the full year 2020 were $6.09 billion, operating loss was $2.43 billion, and net loss was $2.54 billion, or $6.62 per share. Adjusted EBITDA for the full year was $350 million, or 5.7 percent of sales.
“Throughout a year in which the petroleum industry faced historic challenges, our team successfully generated $700 million in free cash flow, reduced annual fixed costs by several hundred million dollars, and launched new products in both oil and gas and renewables,” commented Clay Williams, Chairman, President and CEO. “Nevertheless, the operating environment remains extremely difficult as international and offshore oilfield activity declined steadily throughout 2020, pressuring our longer-cycle capital equipment business.”
“During the fourth quarter, rising oilfield activity and revenues in North America were not enough to offset the declines in international and offshore markets, as customers continued to defer purchases and project approvals. However, while we expect the next two quarters will remain challenging, steadily improving commodity prices, rising North American drilling activity, encouraging news from global vaccination efforts, gradually reopening economies, and increasing interest in offshore wind energy should lead to rising orders for NOV as the year progresses. We are optimistic that the petroleum industry will realize a meaningful recovery in the second half of the year.”
