IMC Investor Presentation

Enteq Technologies plc (AIM: NTQ.L) the energy services technology and equipment supplier, today announces its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2021.

Key Highlights

-- SABER rotary steerable system progressed into the field trial phase in a live drilling environment. Field trial results in October demonstrated the ability of the SABER control system to function downhole in-line with the test criteria. The SABER system has proven successful in reaching the development programme milestones and validating all expectations to date.

-- North American market has strengthened, with rental and sales revenues coming from new and existing customers. Post period end an order valued at US$1.4m was received.

-- Despite China stagnation (6 months to 30 September 2021: US$0.1m; 6 months to 30 September 2020 US$1.8m) and a lag in international market recovery due to ongoing COVID related restrictions, equipment was delivered to new customers in two new geographies.

-- Reduction in current underlying overheads of 25% compared to the same time last year, continued focus on cost and cash management.

-- Investment made in SABER of US$1.0m leaving a cash balance of US$5.3m at 30 September 2021 (March 2021: US$8.1m). The cash balance as at 17 November 2021 being US$6.3m.

Outlook

-- SABER progressing to North American field-trials in early 2022, where there is strong customer and partner interest and good market potential. Expected successful development of SABER will greatly expand Enteq's addressable market. Opening of UK technology and manufacturing centre to support SABER's growth and expansion.

-- Further recovery of the North American market anticipated based on current oil price and ongoing increase in rig count.

   --   International activity, which typically lags North America, expected to start increasing. 

-- Two exclusive distribution agreements with third-party technology providers have been recently signed. These will enhance and complement Enteq's current product range.

-- Revenues for financial year to date (1 April to 31 October) of US$3.2m, and current order book of US$2.0m, provides confidence in the Board's expectations for the full year.

Andrew Law, CEO of Enteq Technologies plc, commented:

"Enteq's game-changing SABER has the potential to significantly increase Enteq's addressable market. The system has performed beyond expectations during the initial field trial phase and system testing. Enteq is well-placed to take SABER through to commercialisation.

It has been encouraging to see the North American market recover during this first half of the financial year, with Enteq's customers already starting to increase capacity. The international market has seen a slower response to the oil price relating to COVID, which is to be expected. Despite this challenging international market, sales were made to new customers in two new markets.

Key team members have been added to the core MWD business and to the SABER team to provide renewed focus on each business unit.

The combination of improving market conditions, a strengthened team and progress of SABER continues to give the Board grounds for optimism regarding the short, medium and long-term outlook for Enteq."

Interim Report

CHAIRMAN & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER'S REPORT

Overview

Enteq supplies and develops drilling and measurement technology for the worldwide oil, gas and geothermal directional drilling markets. Enteq provides equipment through rental or purchase, enabling independent and regional directional drilling companies to operate as an alternative to major integrated service companies. Directional drilling encompasses Measurement While Drilling ("MWD") and Rotary Steerable Systems (RSS).

Enteq continues to focus the existing MWD business on the development, manufacture and supply of equipment. MWD equipment is required on every rig which drills directional wells and over many years Enteq has established market share based on reputation for reliability both in North America, where operations using Enteq equipment are regularly being carried out on a significant number of rigs, and in addition in key international areas.

As a step change to the MWD business, Enteq is commercialising the SABER (Steer At-Bit Enteq Rotary) RSS Tool, a disruptive alternative to traditional directional drilling, which gives Enteq access to a significantly larger addressable market. The SABER Tool, launched in March this year, is an evolution of the intellectual property developed, proven in concept and tested by Shell. Enteq has the exclusive worldwide licence to the intellectual property and is now progressing through the field trial programme.

Technology Update

Development of the SABER system has progressed well, having completed initial system testing before proceeding into the field trial phase in a live operating location. The SABER system, based on Shell's initial working prototype, has been completely re-engineered to increase the operating range, performance and reliability. Testing has successfully demonstrated the ability of the SABER control system to correctly function in downhole conditions. The ongoing field trial phase consists of a systematic testing programme, with the SABER system being operated downhole in a live well environment.

The next phase, expected to be in early 2022, is to advance into field testing in North America, where there continues to be strong interest in SABER from Enteq's customer base.

Financial performance

The half year revenue of US$2.3m has been driven primarily by the steady increase in North American drilling activity. The North American market recovery has been a function of the steady increase in the price of a barrel of WTI; rising from approximately US$61 on 1 April to the current level of around US$80. The North American active drilling rig count has risen by almost 25%; from 430 on 1 April to 528 at the end of September whereas the international markets have been slower to respond. North American drilling activity typically responds quicker than international markets however this response is more pronounced than usual, with the international markets being much slower to respond, most likely relating to the impact from COVID.

Even though the international market has been challenging, there have been significant sales for two new customers in two new countries. The proportion of international revenue was 28% in this reporting period compared to 50% in the six months to 31 March 2021.

The reported gross margin is 37% in the first half of this year compared with the 60% reported in the equivalent period to 30 September 2020 and the 46% seen in the six months to 31 March 2021. This is due to a lower proportion of sales coming from the high margin rental revenue stream (from 33% to 23%) combined with a higher proportion coming from the lower margin mechanical component product line (up from 6% to 16%).

In the six months ended 30 September 2021, administrative expenses before amortisation, depreciation and long-term incentive scheme charges were US$1.4m, down from the US$1.5m in the six months to September 2020, and up from the US$1.2m in the six months to 31 March 2021. The current run rate of underlying group overheads represents a 25% reduction on the US$1.5m seen in this reporting period last year (a 22% reduction on the overheads in this reporting period).

The adjusted EBITDA loss in the period was US$0.6m down from a profit of US$0.1m in the equivalent period last year and a breakeven position in the 6 months to 31 March 2021. The primary reason for the negative movement was the reduced gross margin on similar levels of revenue. A reconciliation between the reported loss and the adjusted EBITDA loss is shown in note 5 to the Financial Statements below.

Cash balance and cashflow

As at 30 September 2021 the Group had a cash balance of US$5.3m, down US$2.8m over the figure as at 31 March 2021.

The half year cash movement can be analysed as follows:

 
                                            US$m 
 Adjusted EBITDA loss                      (0.6) 
 Change in trade and other receivables     (0.1) 
 Change in trade and other payables            - 
 Change in inventory                           - 
 Operational cashflow                      (0.7) 
 Increase in the rental fleet              (1.1) 
 R&D expenditure                           (1.0) 
 Net cash movement                         (2.8) 
 Cash balances as at 1 April 2021            8.1 
---------------------------------------  ------- 
 Cash balances as at 30 September 2021       5.3 
=======================================  ======= 
 

Management expects that the future cash balances are sufficient to complete SABER's field testing phase and to bring it to a successful commercial launch.

The increase in the rental fleet relates to six new kits being out on rental in North America, including two kits with a new customer.

The R&D expenditure was primarily relating to the SABER Rotary Steerable System development program.

Operations

As SABER has reached the development milestones set to date, Enteq is in the process of opening a technology and manufacturing centre. SABER systems will be built at this facility, as well as supporting the sustaining engineering function. The facility will be located close to Cheltenham, UK, one of the global centres of expertise for Rotary Steerable Systems with access to specialised engineering and machining firms.

The core engineering, manufacturing and distribution functions continue to operate from the Enteq owned facility in Houston, Texas.

Organisation

The sales function was reinforced with the addition of a VP Business Development in May 2021. This addition has strengthened customer engagement in North America and internationally, already resulting in revenues from new and existing customers.

The two recently announced distribution agreements with Erdos Miller and Mezintel add complementary product functionality to both SABER (Steer At-Bit Enteq Rotary) and MWD (Measurement While Drilling) product lines.

Effective 1 November 2021 a Reliability Engineer has been hired to underpin the SABER project. Reliability is a critical factor for the successful introduction of technologies such as SABER to customers.

Board

From 1 April 2021 Andrew Law became the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with Martin Perry, the previous CEO, becoming the Non-executive Chairman. From the same date Neil Hartley assumed the role of Senior Independent Director and Iain Paterson, the previous Chairman, became a Non-executive Director. David Steel continues to serve on the Board with the new title of Chief Financial Officer.

Outlook

With SABER progressing well through field trials and the MWD product range enhanced by the exclusive distribution agreements, Enteq is well positioned to benefit from the ongoing market recovery. This provides confidence in the Board's expectations for the full year.

ENTEQ TECHNOLOGIES PLC

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the six months to 30 September 2021

   1.    Reporting entity 

On 18 October 2021, Enteq Upstream plc ("the Company") changed its name to Enteq Technologies plc. The Company is a public limited company incorporated and domiciled in England and Wales (registration number 07590845). The Company's registered address is The Courtyard, High Street, Ascot, Berkshire, SL5 7HP.

The Company's ordinary shares are traded on the AIM market of The London Stock Exchange.

Both the Company and its subsidiaries (together referred to as the "Group") provides equipment to energy service companies for use in the hydrocarbon and geothermal extraction sectors.

   2.    General information and basis of preparation 

The information for the period ended 30 September 2021 does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in section 434 of the Companies Act 2006. A copy of the statutory accounts for the period ended 31 March 2021 has been delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The auditors have reported on these accounts; their reports were unqualified, but did draw attention to the uncertainty regarding the carrying value of the inventory by way of emphasis without qualifying their report and did not contain statements under s498(2) or (3) Companies Act 2006.

The annual financial statements of the Group are prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted by the European Union. The condensed set of financial statements included in this half-yearly financial report has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 'Interim Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union.

The Group's consolidated interim financial statements are presented in US Dollars (US$), which is also the functional currency of the parent company. These condensed consolidated interim financial statements (the interim financial statements) have been approved for issue by the Board of directors on 17 November 2021.

This half-yearly financial report has not been audited and has not been formally reviewed by auditors under the Auditing Practices Board guidance in ISRE 2410.

   3.    Accounting policies 

The interim financial statements have been prepared on the basis of the accounting policies and methods of computation applicable for the period ended 31 March 2021. These accounting policies are consistent with those applied in the preparation of the accounts for the period ended 31 March 2021.

   4.      Estimates 

When preparing the interim financial statements, management undertakes a number of judgements, estimates and assumptions about recognition and measurement of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. The actual results may differ from the judgements, estimates and assumptions made by management, and will seldom equal the estimated results. The judgements, estimates and assumptions applied in the interim financial statements, including the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those applied in the Group's last annual financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2021.

   5.    Adjusted earnings and adjusted EBITDA 

The following analysis illustrates the performance of the Group's activities, and reconciles the Group's loss, as shown in the condensed consolidated interim income statement, to adjusted earnings. Adjusted earnings are presented to provide a better indication of overall financial performance and to reflect how the business is managed and measured on a day-today basis. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation ("adjusted EBITDA") is also presented as it is a key performance indicator used by management.
