Shares of Oceaneering International Inc. traded 16.5% higher yesterday after the diversified offshore engineering services and manufacturing firm reported Q3/22 financial results that included a 20% YoY increase in revenue and improved operating performance and profitability across all its business units.

After U.S. markets closed Wednesday, Oceaneering International Inc. (OII:NYSE), a global provider of engineered products, services, and robotic solutions for the offshore energy, aerospace, defense, and manufacturing industries, announced financial results for the third quarter of 2022 ended September 30, 2022.

The company reported that for Q3/22, it posted total revenue of US$559.7 million, compared to US$466.8 million in Q3/21. The firm provided a breakdown of revenue by business segment and indicated that its subsea robotics unit accounted for US$169.4 million, manufactured products were US$94.0 million, offshore projects group US$153.0 million, integrity management and digital solutions US$58.5 million and aerospace and defense technologies posted US$84.8 million.

The company stated that during Q3/22, it generated cash flow from operations of US$85.9 million, had a free cash flow of US$66.6 million, and ended the quarter with US$428 million in cash on its balance sheet.

Oceaneering International advised that for Q3/22, it recorded a net income of US$18.3 million, or US$0.18 per share, versus a net loss of US$7.4 million, or a net loss of US$0.07 per share in Q3/21.

The company added that adjusted net income for Q3/22 was US$23.7 million, or US$0.23 per share, and noted that the adjustments were the result of US$1.1 million in pre-tax adjustments related to foreign exchange losses and another US$4.4 million in discretionary tax adjustments pertaining to asset valuation and tax allowances.

The company stated that during Q3/22, it generated cash flow from operations of US$85.9 million, had a free cash flow of US$66.6 million, and ended the quarter with US$428 million in cash on its balance sheet.

The firm pointed out further that during Q3/22, its fleet of 250 remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) achieved a utilization rate of 67%, and each, on average, contributed revenue of US$8,468 per day. The company added that as of September 30, 2022, its Manufactured Products division had a backlog of US$365 million.

Oceaneering International's President and CEO Roderick A. Larson commented, "Our third-quarter results were driven by improved offshore activity and pricing, particularly in the Gulf of Mexico, which ticked up further during the quarter. We produced adjusted consolidated EBITDA of US$77.6 million, which exceeded our guidance and consensus estimates."

"Offshore activity drove significant operating improvements in our energy businesses, which were led by our Subsea Robotics (SSR) and Offshore Projects Group (OPG) segments. In addition, increased manufacturing throughput led to improved operating margins in our Manufactured Products segment. We also saw a meaningful recovery in our government-focused businesses after experiencing the effects of negative timing during the second quarter of 2022," Larson added.

The firm stated that it expects that revenues in Q4/22 will decline slightly or be on par with those registered in Q3/22. The company indicated that it estimates that the manufactured products group and ADTech revenues and profitability will be higher but will be offset by slightly lower revenues and operating profitability in its SSR, OPG, and IMDS segments, in part due to seasonality.

Oceaneering indicated that for FY/22, it estimates that adjusted EBITDA will be in the range of US$215-240 million.

The company advised that for FY/23, it anticipates higher levels of activity and improved performance in each of its primary business areas led by its SSR and OPG segments. The firm said that for FY/23, it expects consolidated EBITDA of US$260-310 million and free cash flow of over US$100 million.

The company indicated that going forward, it remains focused on safety, financial discipline, free cash flow generation, debt management, and growth. The firm stated that it will continue to look for opportunities to increase its prices and improve margins to benefit shareholders.
