Total Company revenue was $3,158.5 million. Net income was $11.7 million, or $0.03 per diluted share. These results included after-tax charges and credits totaling $30.5 million of expense, or $0.06 per diluted share. Adjusted net income was $42.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes pre-tax charges and credits, was $241.1 million and included a foreign exchange loss of $5.8 million; adjusted EBITDA margin was 7.6 percent (Exhibit 10).

Doug Pferdehirt, Chairman and CEO of TechnipFMC stated, “Our focus remains on the health and well-being of our employees and stakeholders while ensuring business continuity in a safe and responsible manner. Our dedicated teams advanced projects and met customer requirements, which was evident in our second quarter results.”

“We also made solid progress in three core areas – strengthening our balance sheet, progressing our backlog scheduling and accelerating our business transformation – all to ensure the success of TechnipFMC both through the current cycle and over the longer term. We took a series of proactive steps to ensure that we can maintain access to more than sufficient liquidity in these challenging times. We experienced no cancellations of our backlog, highlighting the resiliency of the nearly $21 billion of backlog we have today. And we have engaged in constructive dialogue with our customers that has resulted in an even more collaborative approach, creating new opportunities for TechnipFMC.”

Pferdehirt added, “The strong balance sheet and extensive backlog have also provided us with the flexibility to accelerate our business transformation, with global actions underway to generate annualized cost savings in excess of $350 million by year-end. We are driving improved productivity across the organization to permanently lower our operating and capital costs. These actions will drive the most value when we align with those clients and partners that demonstrate a willingness to embrace our initiatives focused on simplification, standardization and reduced cycle times. And we are leveraging our core competencies in engineering, manufacturing and project management to deliver sustainable solutions that further enable our clients to reach their carbon reduction ambitions.”

“In Surface Technologies, we continue to transform our North America operations by working with clients to further drive wellsite operational efficiencies and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Outside North America, we are leveraging the strength of our franchise to capitalize on the long-term growth anticipated in the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and the North Sea.”

Pferdehirt continued, “In Subsea, we continue to believe inbound orders will approximate $4 billion for the year. Large project activity demonstrates our strength in important basins such as Brazil, Guyana and Norway. Beyond this activity, our orders have been supported by subsea services, direct iEPCI™ awards and small project activity, much of which is exclusive to TechnipFMC. These opportunities have generated over $3 billion of inbound in each of the last three years, enabled by our market-leading installed base, growing list of alliance partners and integrated FEED capabilities.”

“Turning to Technip Energies, we continue to make good progress on all major projects. While LNG market dynamics have shifted in recent months, we do not view this as the start of an extended downturn for our Company given our strong differentiation in this market. We have been awarded projects in Mozambique and Mexico, both subject to final investment decision, and we are actively tendering a major project in the Middle East while performing front-end work on other LNG prospects. Beyond LNG, energy transition is a strong opportunity for us, particularly in the areas of sustainable chemistry and hydrogen.”

Pferdehirt concluded, “We entered this period with a solid foundation built upon the strength of our balance sheet, backlog and execution. While client conversations remain ongoing, the increased visibility we have today gives us confidence in our full-year guidance for all business segments. This is further supported by the acceleration of our business transformation initiatives to maintain – if not expand – our market leadership.”

Subsea reported second quarter revenue of $1,378.5 million, down 8.6 percent from the prior year. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange, revenue was unchanged, with the completion of projects in Africa in 2019 offset by growth in the Gulf of Mexico and Norway. We continued to demonstrate strong execution of our backlog despite the COVID-19 related disruptions to both supply chain and operations in the period. Operational continuity improved throughout the second quarter as revenue increased 10 percent sequentially.

Subsea reported an operating loss of $75.6 million and included restructuring, impairment and other charges totaling $95.8 million, of which $27.4 million were direct COVID-19 expenses. Operating results declined versus the prior year primarily due to these charges, the impact of more competitively priced backlog and the negative operational impacts related to COVID-19. Operating results benefited from our cost reduction initiatives in the quarter, and we expect to recognize greater cost savings from our restructuring actions in the second half of the year. Adjusted EBITDA was $99.6 million with a margin of 7.2 percent.

    Successful installation of gas export pipeline.

Technip Energies reported second quarter revenue of $1,538.3 million, an increase of 2.2 percent from the prior-year quarter. Revenue benefited from higher activity in LNG, downstream and by our Process Technology business. The continued ramp-up of Arctic LNG 2 more than offset the decline in revenue from Yamal LNG which continues to progress through the warranty phase.

Technip Energies reported operating profit of $231.3 million, which included a $113.2 million benefit from a favorable litigation settlement and $24.8 million of direct COVID-19 expenses. Both of these exceptional items were excluded from adjusted results. Operating profit decreased 15.6 percent versus the prior-year quarter primarily due to a reduced contribution from Yamal LNG and lower margin realization on early phase projects, including Arctic LNG 2. Despite the challenging environment, project execution remained strong across the portfolio. Adjusted EBITDA was $162.6 million with a margin of 10.6 percent.

Second Quarter Technip Energies Highlights

  • Arctic LNG 2 (Russia)
    Delivery of main equipment on-going and piping prefabrication started at all yards.
  • Bapco Modernization Program (Bahrain)
    Construction started on the temporary jetty in May.
  • ENI Coral South FLNG (Mozambique)
    First Power Generation module was installed on the hull in South Korea, marking the start of the module lifting campaign and integration phase.
  • Indian Oil Corporation Panipat Hydrogen Generation Unit (India)
    Hydrogen generation unit is now under start-up.

Partnership and Alliance Highlights

  • TechnipFMC/Agilyx Corporation exclusive collaboration to develop ways to recycle polystyrene
    This collaboration further expands on energy transition capabilities and the circular economy offering of TechnipFMC.
  • TechnipFMC/Clariant Catalysts joint development agreement to produce acrylonitrile
    The joint venture aims to develop and commercialize more efficient processes to produce acrylonitrile and help customers achieve sustainability targets.
  • Demonstration plant for Carbios to recycle waste PET plastics with enzymes
    For this pilot, we are providing advisory, engineering, procurement and construction supervision services for Carbios’ Enzymatic Recycling Process.

Technip Energies inbound orders were $835.8 million for the quarter, resulting in a book-to-bill of 0.5. While there were no announced project awards in the period, the segment benefited from strong activity in front-end engineering, Project Management Consultancy and Loading Systems, as well as expanded scope on existing contracts. The following award was announced subsequent to the second quarter, subject to final investment decision:

  • Assiut National Oil Processing Company Hydrocracking Complex (Egypt)
    Major* engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with Assiut National Oil Processing Company for the construction of a new Hydrocracking Complex for the Assiut refinery in Egypt. The EPC contract covers new process units such as a Vacuum Distillation Unit, a Diesel Hydrocracking Unit, a Delayed Coker Unit, a Distillate Hydrotreating Unit as well as a Hydrogen Production Facility Unit using TechnipFMC’s proprietary steam reforming technology.
    * A “major” award is over $1 billion; the Company will include the contract award in its inbound when all the requirements are fulfilled.

Surface Technologies reported second quarter revenue of $241.7 million, a decrease of 42.5 percent from the prior-year quarter. The decline was primarily driven by the sharp reduction in operator activity in North America. COVID-19 related disruptions and reduced activity levels led to a more modest revenue decline outside of North America, where over 60 percent of total segment revenue was generated in the period.

Surface Technologies reported an operating loss of $13.4 million. When compared to the prior-year period, operating margin decreased primarily due to lower activity in North America driven by the significant decline in rig count and completions-related activity. Adjusted EBITDA was $8.3 million with a margin of 3.4 percent.

Inbound orders for the quarter were $187.1 million, which decreased versus the prior-year quarter primarily due to the significant reduction in North America activity. Backlog decreased 9.5 percent versus the prior-year quarter to $385.9 million. Given the short-cycle nature of the business, orders are generally converted into revenue within twelve months.

Second Quarter Surface Technologies Highlights

  • Integrated technologies (United States)
    Successful completion of well pad for a major operator in the Marcellus Shale utilizing our new fully integrated FracNow™ system, including our CyberFrac™ digital operating system.
  • Petronas (Malaysia)
    Awarded wellheads and trees for a high-rate gas field.
  • Hess Corporation (United States)
    Awarded flowback work in the Bakken shale, which utilizes our latest innovations in separation technology through our Automated Well Testing package in addition to other flow testing services.
  • Wellhead systems (Middle East)
    Received orders for wellheads, trees and services for both onshore and shallow water fields, including our unitized wellhead systems for sour gas applications.

Corporate and Other Items

Corporate expense in the quarter was $29.1 million. Excluding charges and credits totaling $1.9 million of expense, corporate expense was $27.2 million. The results benefited from lower activity as well as the accelerated pace of cost reduction actions.

Foreign exchange gains and losses are now provided separately in the Company’s financial statements and are no longer included in Corporate expense. Foreign exchange losses in the quarter were $5.8 million, which resulted primarily from the impact of unhedged currencies.

Net interest expense was $74.4 million in the quarter, which included an increase in the liability payable to joint venture partners of $50.8 million. Interest expense was negatively impacted by higher short-term borrowing costs in the period which are expected to return to normalized levels for the remainder of the year.

The Company recorded a tax provision in the quarter of $17.7 million. The quarterly tax rate was impacted by earnings mix and jurisdictions which are unable to record a tax benefit due to operational losses.

Total depreciation and amortization for the quarter was $106.6 million.

The Company ended the period with cash and cash equivalents of $4,809.5 million; net cash was $302.5 million.

Liquidity

During the quarter, the Company added two new sources of liquidity including a £600 million European Commercial Paper Program under the U.K. Government’s COVID Corporate Financing Facility and a €500 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility. This incremental funding further diversifies the Company’s lending sources and provides additional flexibility over the intermediate term.

Additionally, the Company announced amendments to its revolving credit facility agreements allowing the add back of approximately $3.2 billion of previously impaired goodwill to the Company’s total capitalization ratio covenant. With this permanent amendment, the ratio as of June 30, 2020 was 38 percent.

At the end of the second quarter, the Company had $6.8 billion of cash and liquidity compared to $5.6 billion of cash and liquidity as of March 31, 2020.

2020 Full-Year Financial Guidance1

The Company’s full-year guidance for 2020 can be found in the table below.

12020 segment guidance is reflective of new business perimeters previously announced in 2019. Businesses with approximately $120 million of total revenue in 2019, most of which was in the Surface Technologies segment, were re-allocated to Technip Energies at the beginning of 2020. The revenue of these businesses is included in Technip Energies guidance for 2020.
Our guidance measures adjusted EBITDA margin, corporate expense, net, net interest expense (excluding the impact of revaluation of partners’ mandatorily redeemable financial liability) and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures. We are unable to provide a reconciliation to comparable GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort because of the unpredictability of the individual components of the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and the variability of items excluded from each such measure. Such information may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future financial results.

Teleconference

The Company will host a teleconference on Thursday, July 30, 2020 to discuss the second quarter 2020 financial results. The call will begin at 1 p.m. London time (8 a.m. New York time). Dial-in information and an accompanying presentation can be found at www.TechnipFMC.com.

Webcast access will also be available on our website prior to the start of the call. An archived audio replay will be available after the event at the same website address. In the event of a disruption of service or technical difficulty during the call, information will be posted on our website.
