HOUSTON, Nov. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – SMG Industries, Inc. (OTCQB: SMGI), a growth-oriented oilfield services company operating in the Southwest United States, announced their financial results today for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Third Quarter 2018 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 65% to $1,026,949 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, from $620,084 during the same period in 2017,
  • Gross profit increased over 15% to $444,027 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, from $385,710 during the same period in 2017,
  • Gross margin was 43.5% of revenue for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018 compared to 62.2% of revenue for the third quarter 2017,
  • Net loss for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018 was $279,694, or $0.03 per diluted share, which included non-cash expenses of $196,273 associated with depreciation, amortization and share payments, and one-time expenses of $15,790,
  • Net loss for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $412,626, or $0.04 per diluted share,
  • Revenue increased 77% to $3,192,432 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $1,802,486 during the same period in 2017, and,
  • The Company continues to aggressively move forward with its previously announced accretive acquisition strategy. 

As stated in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed November 9, 2018 with the Securities and Exchange Commission, revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $1,026,949, an increase of $406,865, or 65%, from $620,084 for the comparable three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase was attributed to an increase in customer activity driven by an increase in drilling rig count in geographic areas SMG Industries serves, additional services the Company has added including rental fleets of equipment, our rig supply services as well as additional new customers.  

During the three months ended September 30, 2018, cost of sales increased as a percentage of sales to 56.7% of revenues, or $582,922, compared to 37.8% of revenues, or $234,374, for the  comparable 2017 period. The increase in cost of sales as a percentage of revenues is primarily the result of higher direct costs including further expansion in West Texas with service crews and related equipment in addition to the new facility in South Texas not present in the year ago period.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $667,277, a decrease of $107,089, from $774,366 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses in 2018 was primarily due to lowering costs associated with truck rental and lodging expense for service crews compared to certain one-time costs from the September 2017 merger with MG Cleaners.

During the three months ended September 30, 2018, the Company realized a net loss of $279,694, or $0.03 per basic and diluted earnings per share.  For the three months ended September 30, 2017 the Company realized a net loss of $412,626 or $0.19 per basic and diluted earnings per share. The net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 resulted from increased revenues, lower selling, general and administrative expenses and the absence of one-time acquisition charges related to the MG Cleaners acquisition in the year ago comparable period.   

Mr. Matthew Flemming, Chief Executive Officer of SMGI, stated, “East Texas operations remained positive during the quarter with continued customer activity in the Haynesville and new service revenues from Rig Wash services. In West Texas, take away capacity and production issues in the Permian Basin did not slow down drilling activities in our view as much as fracing and completions activities reported by other service companies. While Rig Wash services were down sequentially in the third quarter due to inclement weather, the Company exited the quarter with near full utilization of its service crews.  We are excited about the progress in South Texas’ Eagle Ford area.  The Company has several new customers in the Eagle Ford Shale many of whom are well-capitalized active independent producers. Currently, we view South Texas as an attractive growth area for our company as the oil produced is closer to market, there is relatively less competition with peer service companies and employees can be less difficult to source. The Company continues to actively pursue plans for acquisitions with an accretive profile.”   

Mr. Stephen Christian, President of MG Cleaners LLC and EVP of SMG, stated, “During this quarter, we implemented programs in each location to raise efficiencies with our service crews and reduce expenses such as revising our fleet program and providing service crew housing in Odessa thereby eliminating most mobile crews’ hotel expenses.  By initiating our rig supply division, known as MG Supply, we have increased our repeat customer contact and further driven our MG proprietary products such as Miracle Blue®. During the quarter, the Company received several new MSAs reflecting customers' confidence with our continued focus on safety, in-field services and our branded products. During this quarter, we also acquired approximately 850 bottom hole assembly (BHA) oil tools which includes stabilizers, crossovers, drilling jars, roller reamers and bit subs both non-mag and steel units. We are in the process of setting up rental customer channels for directional drillers who require these units.”                                                  

As of November 9, 2018, the Company had 11,346,690 shares outstanding.
