Net cash provided by operating activities was $78 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 compared to net cash used in operating activities of $20 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.

President and CEO John Lindsay commented, 'The increase in activity we experienced during the first half of our fiscal 2021 year has been encouraging, particularly in light of the record industry downturn last year. As in the past, our strong market standing and flexible financial position is enabling us to concentrate on long-term, strategic objectives during volatile and uncertain markets. We are making good progress in deploying digital technology solutions and introducing new commercial models to the industry, but realize there is still a lot of work ahead of us.
'Clearly, the energy industry's capital discipline, which started prior to the global pandemic, remains resolute, and this is something we are actually pleased to see. The attention to controlled spending and generating returns in a variety of commodity price environments is what the industry needs to attract and retain investment. A natural step in capital discipline is deriving the most value per capital dollar spent, not just in a one-year budget cycle, but over the life of an investment. This corresponds directly to where we believe H&P, as the leading drilling solutions provider, delivers the most value to our customers and is the driver behind the development of our digital technology solutions and commercial models that are structured around achieving value-added outcomes.
'H&P's focus will remain on bringing value to the customer by leveraging software, data and FlexRig technology. Our digitally-enabled drilling operations provide automation solutions that deliver both efficiency gains and wellbore quality. Our customers experience not only near-term financial benefits, like lower well costs and the reduction of certain downhole risks, but also have positive economic implications over the long-term life of the well. An important ingredient to a successful technology strategy is the integration of new commercial models, which incorporate performance metrics into the contract. New commercial models are designed to generate win-win outcomes - the customer has a well with improved economics and H&P is compensated for helping to create a portion of that value. Currently, approximately 30% of our active fleet in the U.S. is under some type of performance contract.'
Senior Vice President and CFO Mark Smith also commented, 'The quality and strength of H&P's financial position, after emerging from one of the most challenging times in the Company's history, bears reiteration. H&P exited the March fiscal quarter with $562 million in cash and short-term investments, a debt-to-cap of 14% and approximately $1.3 billion in available liquidity. Additionally, lenders with $680 million of commitments under our undrawn revolving credit facility recently exercised their option to extend the maturity of our credit facility by one year to 2025. Much like the Company's strong balance sheet, the commitment to our long-standing capital allocation strategy of returning cash to shareholders remains firmly intact.
'As the market landscape continues to evolve, the Company's focus on marketing its highly capable, super-spec FlexRig fleet is more pronounced leading us to initiate a plan in March of this year to sell certain older, less capable rigs, the majority of which were previously decommissioned, written down and expected to be sold for scrap. As a result of this plan, we reclassified those assets to held for sale for accounting purposes and we incurred an impairment of $54 million related to fair market adjustments. Additionally we recognized a $23 million loss on sales related to excess drilling equipment and spares.
'We continue to move forward with our strategies of further rationalizing our operating cost structure by identifying other areas of potential cost improvement. We are now quantifying the expected savings and timing of these strategies with the expectation of implementing these initiatives in the coming quarters. The margin improvements resulting from these additional cost saving initiatives will be recognized over the next few quarters with the full ongoing benefits expected to be realized in fiscal 2022.'
John Lindsay concluded, 'One of H&P's strengths is its ability to adapt to changing, and often volatile, market conditions. Our people, rig assets and technology, and financial position are the drivers behind why H&P is considered a market leader and partner of choice within the industry. While challenges still remain ahead, I am confident that H&P and our people are up to the task and will be successful.'

Operating Segment Results for the Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2021
North America Solutions:
This segment had an operating loss of $109.8 million compared to an operating loss of $72.9 million during the previous quarter. The increase in the operating loss was due to impairments related to fair market adjustments to decommissioned rigs that are held for sale and restructuring charges. Absent these select items(2), this segment's operating loss declined by $18.8 million on a sequential basis, due mainly to a higher level of rig activity.

Operating gross margins(1) increased by $19.4 million to $64.1 million as both revenues and expenses increased sequentially. There was no early contract termination revenue recognized during the quarter compared to the prior quarter, which benefited from $5.8 million in early contract termination revenue. Operating results were still negatively impacted by the costs associated with reactivating rigs; $9.7 million in the second fiscal quarter compared to $10.6 million in the first fiscal quarter. While 21 idle rigs were reactivated during the quarter, only 15 were incremental to the rig count due to the normal contracting churn. The majority of the remaining reactivated rigs have already returned to service subsequent to March 31, 2021.

International Solutions:
This segment had an operating loss of $3.5 million compared to an operating loss of $8.4 million during the previous quarter. Operating gross margins(1) improved to a negative $1.9 million from a negative $7.0 million in the previous quarter, as the current quarter benefited from additional revenue days and certain revenue reimbursements of approximately $1.9 million. Current quarter results included a $2.4 million foreign currency loss related to our South American operations compared to an approximate $1.9 million foreign currency loss in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.

Offshore Gulf of Mexico:
This segment had operating income of $3.0 million compared to operating income of $2.7 million during the previous quarter. Operating gross margins(1) remained relatively flat at $6.2 million compared to $6.0 million in the prior quarter.

Operational Outlook for the Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2021
North America Solutions:
•We expect North America Solutions operating gross margins(1) to be between $65-$75 million
•We expect to exit the quarter at between 120-125 contracted rigs
International Solutions:
•We expect International Solutions operating gross margins(1) to be between $(1)-$(3) million, exclusive of any foreign exchange gains or losses

Offshore Gulf of Mexico:
•We expect Offshore Gulf of Mexico operating gross margins(1) to be between $6-$9 million

Segment operating income (loss) for all segments is a non-GAAP financial measure of the Company's performance, as it excludes gain on sale of assets, corporate selling, general and administrative expenses, corporate restructuring charges, and corporate depreciation. The Company considers segment operating income (loss) to be an important supplemental measure of operating performance for presenting trends in the Company's core businesses. This measure is used by the Company to facilitate period-to-period comparisons in operating performance of the Company's reportable segments in the aggregate by eliminating items that affect comparability between periods. The Company believes that segment operating income (loss) is useful to investors because it provides a means to evaluate the operating performance of the segments and the Company on an ongoing basis using criteria that are used by our internal decision makers. Additionally, it highlights operating trends and aids analytical comparisons. However, segment operating income has limitations and should not be used as an alternative to operating income or loss, a performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP, as it excludes certain costs that may affect the Company's operating performance in future periods.
