Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Update

The Company expects total liquidity of approximately $74 million at December 31, 2018 with approximately $50 million in cash. This compares to total liquidity of $73 million and cash of $43 million at September 30, 2018.

The Company expects fourth quarter 2018 revenues to range between $115 million and $120 million as compared to third quarter 2018 revenues of $134.7 million. Approximately 60% of the quarter on quarter decline is expected to be due to lower completion activity, primarily coiled tubing activity and rig completion activity in the Permian Basin, with the remainder of the quarterly decline due to seasonal effects.

Fourth quarter 2018 consolidated operating loss is expected to range between $14.5 million and $15.5 million. The fourth quarter operating loss is expected to include depreciation expense of approximately $20 million, gains on asset sales of approximately $2 million and equity based compensation expense of approximately $1 million. Excluding these items from the expected consolidated operating loss, Key expects fourth quarter 2018 Adjusted EBITDA to range between $3.5 million and $4.5 million.

The Companys fourth quarter 2018 operating loss as compared to the third quarter 2018 increased due to lower completion activity and seasonal factors, which were partially offset by previously announced cost structure changes and fourth quarter 2018 price increases ranging from 1% to 5% in the Companys Rig, Fishing and Rental and Fluids Management Segments.

The Company expects full year 2018 revenues to range between $516 million and $526 million as compared to full year 2017 revenues of $436 million, an expected increase of between 18% and 20%.

The Company anticipates full year 2018 U.S. Rig hours of approximately 700,000, an increase of approximately 7% over full year 2017 U.S. Rig hours of 656,139.

Full year 2018 consolidated operating loss is expected to range between $58 million and $60 million compared to a full year 2017 consolidated operating loss of approximately $96 million.

The full year 2018 operating loss is expected to include depreciation expense of approximately $83 million, gains on asset sales of approximately $10 million, costs associated with executive changes of approximately $1 million and equity based compensation expense of approximately $5 million.

Excluding these items from the expected consolidated operating loss, Key expects full year 2018 Adjusted EBITDA to range between $21.5 million and $22.5 million.

2019 Operations Update

The Company anticipates first quarter 2019 consolidated revenues to increase in a range from 1% to 5% from the fourth quarter of 2018 due to resumption of activity in the second half of January and typical season factors, including weather.

Well service rig completion activity returned to pre-holiday levels by the end of January 2019.

Coiled Tubing completion activity exceeded fourth quarter activity levels by the end of January 2019.

The Company expects that total liquidity at the end of 2019 will approximate or be in excess of the $75 million in total liquidity anticipated at December 31, 2018.

Certain Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA as further adjusted for certain items discussed in this Current Report on Form 8-K and in the attendant presentation.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that is used as a supplemental financial measure by the Companys management and directors and by external users of the Companys financial statements, such as investors, to assess:

The financial performance of the Companys assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis;

The ability of the Companys assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest on its indebtedness;

The Companys operating performance and return on invested capital as compared to those of other companies in the well services industry, without regard to financing methods and capital structure; and

The Companys operating trends underlying the items that tend to be of a non-recurring nature.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating income, cash flow from operating activities, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and operating income and Adjusted EBITDA may vary among other companies. Limitations to using Adjusted EBITDA as an analytical tool include:

Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect Keys current or future requirements for capital expenditures or capital commitments;

Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements necessary to service, interest or principal payments on Keys debt;

Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income taxes;

Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;

Other companies in Keys industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than Key does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure; and

Adjusted EBITDA is a different calculation from earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization as defined for purposes of the financial covenants in the Companys senior secured credit facility, and therefore should not be relied upon for assessing compliance with covenants.
