DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Description of the Business

 

We are one of the largest integrated providers of workforce accommodations, logistics and facility management services to the natural resource industry. Our scalable modular facilities provide long-term and temporary accommodations where traditional accommodations and related infrastructure is insufficient, inaccessible or not cost effective. Once facilities are deployed in the field, we also provide catering and food services, housekeeping, laundry, facility management, water and wastewater treatment, power generation, communications and redeployment logistics. Our accommodations support our customers’ employees and contractors in the Canadian oil sands and in a variety of oil and natural gas drilling, mining and related natural resource applications as well as disaster relief efforts, primarily in Canada, Australia and the United States. We operate in three principal reportable business segments – Canada, Australia and U.S.

 

On February 7, 2017, we closed a public offering of 23,000,000 common shares at $3.00 per share. We used a portion of the net proceeds of $64.8 million from the offering to repay amounts outstanding under several revolving credit facilities provided by our primary credit agreement (the Credit Agreement) and expect to use the remaining proceeds for general corporate purposes.

 

On February 17, 2017, the third amendment to the Credit Agreement (as so amended, the Amended Credit Agreement) became effective, which: (i) reduced the aggregate revolving loan commitments; (ii) added one additional level to the total leverage-based grid for determining interest rates; and (iii) increased the maximum leverage ratio allowed under the Amended Credit Agreement. For further information, please see Note 7 – Debt.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

Unless otherwise stated or the context otherwise indicates: (i) all references in these consolidated financial statements to “Civeo,” “us,” “our” or “we” refer to Civeo Corporation and its consolidated subsidiaries; and (ii) all references in this report to “dollars” or “$” are to U.S. dollars.

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Civeo have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) pertaining to interim financial information. Certain information in footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) has been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations. The unaudited financial statements included in this report reflect all the adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which Civeo considers necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations for the interim periods covered and for the financial condition of Civeo at the date of the interim balance sheet. Results for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. Certain reclassifications have been made to the December 31, 2016 consolidated balance sheet to conform to the current year presentation.

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the use of estimates and assumptions by management in determining the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. If the underlying estimates and assumptions upon which the financial statements are based change in future periods, actual amounts may differ from those included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

 

The financial statements included in this report should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements and accompanying notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the FASB), which are adopted by us as of the specified effective date. Unless otherwise discussed, management believes that the impact of recently issued standards or other guidance updates, which are not yet effective, will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses” (ASU 2016-13). This new standard changes how companies will measure credit losses for most financial assets and certain other instruments that are not measured at fair value through net income. ASU 2016-13 is effective for financial statements issued for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within the reporting periods. We are currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, “Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting” (ASU 2016-09). This new standard requires companies to recognize the income tax effects of awards in the income statement when the awards vest or are settled. ASU 2016-09 is effective for financial statements issued for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and interim periods within the reporting periods. The changes to the accounting for forfeitures and excess tax benefits or deficiencies should be applied using a modified retrospective transition method with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings. Effective with our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, we have adopted this standard effective January 1, 2017. Upon adoption of this standard, we no longer estimate forfeitures in advance and now recognize forfeitures as they occur and have reflected a cumulative effect adjustment of $0.6 million to accumulated deficit in the accompanying unaudited consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2017. In addition, this new standard requires that companies classify the cash paid to a tax authority when shares are withheld to satisfy the employer’s statutory income tax withholding obligation as a financing activity. As a result of our withholding of shares for tax-withholding purposes, during the year ended December 31, 2016, we withheld approximately 68,000 shares at a total value of $0.1 million. As a result of our adoption of ASU 2016-09, we reclassified $0.1 million of tax-withholdings from operating activities to financing activities on the accompanying unaudited consolidated statement of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases” (Topic 842), which replaces the existing guidance for lease accounting, Leases (Topic 840).  ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize a lease liability and a right-of-use asset for all leases with terms longer than 12 months.   The guidance is effective for financial statements issued for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within the reporting periods. An entity will be required to recognize and measure leases at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach. We are currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on our consolidated financial statements. 

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09 establishing Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (ASC 606).  ASC 606 establishes a comprehensive new revenue recognition model designed to depict the transfer of goods or services to a customer in an amount that reflects the consideration the entity expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods or services and requires significantly enhanced revenue disclosures.  The standard is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017.  Accordingly, we plan to adopt this standard in the first quarter of 2018.  ASC 606 allows either full retrospective or modified retrospective transition, and we currently plan to use the modified retrospective method of adoption. We are continuing to evaluate the impact of this new standard on our consolidated financial statements upon adoption. Our evaluation includes performing a detailed review of key contracts representative of our different businesses and comparing historical accounting policies and practices to the new standard. Through the second quarter of 2017, we have reviewed certain lodge and village contracts in our Canadian and Australian segments and based on our preliminary review of these contracts, we do not expect the new revenue recognition standard to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

Our financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, receivables, payables and debt instruments. We believe that the carrying values of these instruments on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets approximate their fair values.

 

As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we believe the carrying value of our floating-rate debt outstanding under our term loans and revolving credit facilities approximates fair value because the terms include short-term interest rates and exclude penalties for prepayment. We estimated the fair value of our floating-rate term loan and revolving credit facilities using significant other observable inputs, representative of a Level 2 fair value measurement, including terms and credit spreads for these loans.

 

During the first quarter of 2016, we wrote down certain long-lived assets to fair value. Our estimates of fair value required us to use significant unobservable inputs, representative of Level 3 fair value measurements, including numerous assumptions with respect to future circumstances that might directly impact each of the relevant asset groups’ operations in the future and are therefore uncertain. These assumptions with respect to future circumstances included future oil, coal and natural gas prices, anticipated spending by our customers, the cost of capital, and industry and/or local market conditions.

IMPAIRMENT CHARGES

 

Quarter ended March 31, 2016. During the first quarter of 2016, we recorded an impairment expense of $8.4 million, resulting from the impairment of fixed assets in our U.S. segment, due to a continued reduction of U.S. drilling activity in the Bakken Shale region. These fixed assets were written down to fair value of $3.8 million. We assessed the carrying values of the relevant asset groups to determine if they continued to be recoverable based on estimated future cash flows. Based on that assessment, the carrying values were determined to not be recoverable, and we proceeded to compare the fair value of those assets groups to the respective carrying values.

In the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we excluded from the calculation 2.3 million and 1.5 million share based awards, respectively, since the effect would have been anti-dilutive. In the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we excluded from the calculation 2.1 million and 1.4 million share based awards, respectively, since the effect would have been anti-dilutive.

Amended Credit Agreement

 

As of December 31, 2016, our Credit Agreement, as then amended to date, provided for: (i) a $350.0 million, revolving credit facility scheduled to mature on May 28, 2019, allocated as follows: (A) a $50.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility in favor of certain of our U.S. subsidiaries, as borrowers; (B) a $100.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility in favor of Civeo and certain of our Canadian subsidiaries, as borrowers; (C) a $100.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility in favor of Civeo, as borrower; and (D) a $100.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility in favor of one of our Australian subsidiaries, as borrower; and (ii) a $350.0 million term loan facility scheduled to mature on May 28, 2019 in favor of Civeo.

 

On February 17, 2017, the third amendment to the Credit Agreement (as amended by the third amendment, the Amended Credit Agreement) became effective, which:

 

 

provided for the reduction by $75 million of the aggregate revolving loan commitments under the Amended Credit Agreement, to a maximum principal amount of $275 million, allocated as follows: (1) a $40.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility in favor of certain of our U.S. subsidiaries, as borrowers; (2) a $90.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility in favor of Civeo and certain of our Canadian subsidiaries, as borrowers; (3) a $60.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility in favor of Civeo, as borrower; and (4) an $85.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility in favor of one of our Australian subsidiaries, as borrower;

 

 

established one additional level to the total leverage-based grid such that the interest rates for the loans range from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus 2.25% to LIBOR plus 5.50%, and increased the undrawn commitment fee from a range of 0.51% to 1.13% to a range of 0.51% to 1.24% based on total leverage;

The Amended Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants that, among other things, limit or restrict: (i) subsidiary indebtedness, liens and fundamental changes; (ii) asset sales; (iii) acquisitions of margin stock; (iv) specified acquisitions; (v) certain restrictive agreements; (vi) transactions with affiliates; and (vii) investments and other restricted payments, including dividends and other distributions. In addition, we must maintain an interest coverage ratio, defined as the ratio of consolidated EBITDA to consolidated interest expense, of at least 3.0 to 1.0 and our maximum leverage ratio, defined as the ratio of total debt to consolidated EBITDA, of no greater than 5.25 to 1.0 (as of June 30, 2017). As noted above, the permitted maximum leverage ratio changes over time. Each of the factors considered in the calculations of these ratios are defined in the Amended Credit Agreement. EBITDA and consolidated interest, as defined, exclude goodwill and asset impairments, debt discount amortization and other non-cash charges. We were in compliance with all of these covenants as of June 30, 2017.

 

Borrowings under the Amended Credit Agreement are secured by a pledge of substantially all of our assets and the assets of our subsidiaries. The obligations under the Amended Credit Agreement are guaranteed by our significant subsidiaries. There are 15 lenders that are parties to the Amended Credit Agreement, with commitments ranging from $1.1 million to $122.2 million.

 

8.

INCOME TAXES

 

Our operations are conducted through various subsidiaries in a number of countries throughout the world. We have provided for income taxes based upon the tax laws and rates in the countries in which operations are conducted and income is earned.

 

We operate primarily in three jurisdictions, Canada , Australia and the U.S., where statutory tax rates range from 27% to 35%. Our effective tax rate will vary from period to period based on changes in earnings mix between these different jurisdictions.

 

We compute our quarterly taxes under the effective tax rate method by applying an anticipated annual effective rate to our year-to-date income, except for significant unusual or extraordinary transactions. As Australia and the U.S. are now loss jurisdictions for tax accounting purposes, Australia and the U.S. have been removed from the annual effective tax rate computation for purposes of computing the interim tax provision. Income taxes for any significant and unusual or extraordinary transactions are computed and recorded in the period that the specific transaction occurs.

 

Our income tax benefit for the six months ended June 30, 2017 totaled $5.9 million, or 14.1% of pretax loss, compared to a benefit of $5.5 million, or 12.7% of pretax loss, for the six months ended June 30, 2016. Our income tax benefit for the three months ended June 30, 2017 totaled $2.9 million, or 16.5% of pretax loss, compared to a benefit of $0.9 million, or 7.7% of pretax loss, for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Our effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 was reduced approximately 13% and 18%, respectively, by the exclusion of Australia and U.S. for purposes of computing the interim tax provision since they are loss jurisdictions for tax accounting purposes.

 

9.

COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

We are a party to various pending or threatened claims, lawsuits and administrative proceedings seeking damages or other remedies concerning our commercial operations, products, employees and other matters, including warranty and product liability claims as a result of our products or operations. Although we can give no assurance about the outcome of pending legal and administrative proceedings and the effect such outcomes may have on us, management believes that any ultimate liability resulting from the outcome of such proceedings, to the extent not otherwise provided for or covered by insurance, will not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or liquidity.

 

10.

ACCUMULATED OTHER COMPREHENSIVE LOSS

 

Our accumulated other comprehensive loss decreased $24.0 million from $362.9 million at December 31, 2016 to $338.9 million at June 30, 2017, as a result of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Changes in other comprehensive loss during the first half of 2017 were primarily driven by the Australian dollar and Canadian dollar increasing in value compared to the U.S. dollar. Excluding intercompany balances, our Canadian dollar and Australian dollar functional currency net assets totaled approximately C$0.2 billion and A$0.5 billion, respectively, at June 30, 2017.

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

You should read the following discussion and analysis together with our consolidated financial statements and the notes to those statements included elsewhere in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

 

Macroeconomic Environment

 

We provide workforce accommodations to the natural resource industry in Canada, Australia and the U.S. Demand for our services can be attributed to two phases of our customers’ projects: (1) the development or construction phase; and (2) the operations or production phase. Historically, initial demand for our services has been driven by our customers’ capital spending programs related to the construction and development of oil sands and coal mines and associated infrastructure as well as the exploration for oil and natural gas. Long-term demand for our services has been driven by continued development and expansion of natural resource production and operation of oil sands and mining facilities. In general, industry capital spending programs are based on the outlook for commodity prices, economic growth and estimates of resource production. As a result, demand for our products and services is largely sensitive to expected commodity prices, principally related to crude oil, metallurgical (met) coal and natural gas.

 

In Canada, Western Canadian Select (WCS) crude is the benchmark price for our oil sands accommodations customers. Pricing for WCS is driven by several factors, including the underlying price for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude and the availability of transportation infrastructure. Historically, WCS has traded at a discount to WTI, creating a “WCS Differential,” due to transportation costs and limited capacity to move Canadian heavy oil production to refineries, primarily along the U.S. Gulf Coast. The WCS Differential has varied depending on the extent of transportation capacity availability.

During the first quarter of 2016, global oil prices dropped to their lowest levels in over ten years due to concerns over global oil demand, global crude inventory levels, worldwide economic growth and price cutting by major oil producing countries, such as Saudi Arabia. Increasing global supply, including increased U.S. shale oil production, also negatively impacted pricing. With falling WTI oil prices, WCS also fell. Prices began to increase in March 2016, and continued to increase in the first quarter of 2017 before falling slightly in the second quarter of 2017. WCS prices in the second quarter of 2017 averaged $37.99 per barrel compared to a low of $20.26 in the first quarter of 2016 and a high of $83.78 in the second quarter of 2014. The WCS Differential decreased from $16.10 per barrel at the end of the fourth quarter of 2016 to $9.80 per barrel at the end of the second quarter of 2017. As of July 24, 2017, the WTI price was $46.19 and the WCS price was $36.44, resulting in a WCS Differential of $9.75.

 

There remains a risk that prices for Canadian oil sands crude oil related products could deteriorate or remain at current depressed levels for an extended period of time, and the discount between WCS crude prices and WTI crude prices could widen. The depressed price levels through the first quarter of 2016 negatively impacted exploration, development, maintenance and production spending and activity by Canadian operators and, therefore, demand for our services in late 2014 and throughout 2015 and 2016. Although we have seen an uplift in oil prices in late 2016 and into the first quarter of 2017, we are not expecting significant improvement in customer activity in the near-term, as we anticipate that our customers’ capital spending will generally lag increased oil prices by nine to 12 months. However, continued uncertainty and commodity price volatility could cause our Canadian oil sands customers to delay maintenance spending and defer additional investments in their oil sands assets.

 

In Australia, approximately 80% of our rooms are located in the Bowen Basin and primarily serve met coal mines in that region. Met coal pricing and production growth in the Bowen Basin region is predominantly influenced by the levels of global steel production, which increased by 4.5% during the first half of 2017 compared to the corresponding period in 2016. On March 28, 2017, a Category 4 cyclone made landfall on the coast of Queensland, Australia, temporarily shutting down the majority of Bowen Basin coal export rail infrastructure, causing another spike in met coal spot prices from $152 per metric tonne on March 31, 2017 to over $300 per metric tonne. As of July 24, 2017, met coal spot prices appear to have normalized to $174 per metric tonne and benchmark contract prices for the third quarter of 2017 paid to Australian metallurgical coal producers by Japanese steel producers have not settled.  Following cyclone Debbie, the market is shifting away from quarterly benchmark pricing and more toward a spot or index linked approach as a pricing mechanism. Despite the met coal price increase in the fourth quarter of 2016 cause by supply disruptions and the first quarter disruption cause by the cyclone, we have seen a limited impact on the general willingness of customers to increase activity. We expect that customers will look for an outlook for sustained prices for met coal above $150 per metric tonne before we see any significant impact on customer activity levels and, as a result, the demand for accommodations. Long-term demand for steel is expected to be driven by increased steel consumption per capita in developing economies, such as China and India, whose current consumption per capita is a fraction of developed countries. Our customers continue to actively implement cost, productivity and efficiency measures to drive down their cost base.

 

Natural gas and WTI crude oil prices, discussed above, have an impact on the demand for our U.S. accommodations business. With limited export capabilities, U.S. natural gas prices are primarily influenced by domestic supply and demand dynamics and resultant inventory levels. U.S. natural gas production has continued to outpace demand, which has caused prices to continue to be weak relative to historical prices over the past decade. U.S. natural gas inventory levels at June 30, 2017 were 2.9 Tcf, 8% lower than inventory levels from June 30, 2016 but still 7% over seasonally comparable average inventory levels over the past five years. Prices for natural gas in the U.S. averaged $3.14 per mcf in the second quarter of 2017, a 40% increase from the average price in the second quarter of 2016. Although natural gas prices increased slightly in the fourth quarter of 2016 and into 2017, at these levels, it is uneconomic to increase development in several domestic, gas-focused basins. If natural gas production growth continues to surpass demand in the U.S. and/or the supply of natural gas increases, whether the supply comes from conventional or unconventional production or associated natural gas production from oil wells, prices for natural gas could be constrained for an extended period and result in fewer rigs drilling for natural gas in the near-term.

Overview

 

As noted above, demand for our services is primarily tied to the outlook for crude oil and met coal prices. Other factors that can affect our business and financial results include the general global economic environment and regulatory changes in Canada, Australia, the U.S. and other markets.

 

Our business is predominantly located in northern Alberta, Canada and Queensland, Australia, and we derive most of our business from resource companies who are developing and producing oil sands and met coal resources and, to a lesser extent, other hydrocarbon and mineral resources. More than three-fourths of our revenue is generated by our large-scale lodge and village facilities. Where traditional accommodations and infrastructure are insufficient, inaccessible or cost ineffective, our lodge and village facilities provide comprehensive accommodations services similar to those found in an urban hotel. We typically contract our facilities to our customers on a fee-per-day basis that covers lodging and meals and is based on the duration of customer needs, which can range from several weeks to several years.

 

Generally, our customers are making multi-billion dollar investments to develop their prospects, which have estimated reserve lives ranging from ten years to in excess of 30 years. Consequently, these investments are dependent on those customers’ long-term views of commodity demand and prices.

 

In response to decreases in crude oil prices beginning in late 2014, many of our customers in Canada curtailed their operations and spending, and most major oil sands mining operators are continuing to seek to reduce their costs and limit capital spending, thereby limiting the demand for accommodations of the kind we provide. In Australia, approximately 80% of our rooms are located in the Bowen Basin and primarily serve met coal mines in that region, where our customers continue to implement operational efficiency measures, in order to drive down their cost base.

 

In recent months, however, several catalysts have emerged that we believe could have favorable intermediate to long-term implications for our core end markets. Since the announcement by OPEC in late November 2016 to cut production quotas and the subsequent rise in oil prices and oil price expectations, certain operators with steam-assisted gravity drainage operations in the Canadian oil sands have announced increased capital budgets for 2017. In addition, recent regulatory approvals of several major pipeline projects have the potential to both drive incremental demand for mobile accommodations assets and to improve take-away capacity for Canadian oil sands producers over the longer term. Additionally, we believe that the Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S., if constructed, would be a positive catalyst for Canadian oil sands producers, as it would bolster confidence in future take-away capacity from the region to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries. In Australia, we believe prices are currently at a level that may contribute to increased activity over the long term.

While we believe that these macroeconomic developments are positive for our customers and for the underlying demand for our accommodations services, we do not expect an immediate improvement in our business and are expecting our full year 2017 revenues and EBITDA to be materially lower compared to 2016. Accordingly, we plan to focus on enhancing the quality of our operations, maintaining financial discipline and proactively managing our business as market conditions continue to evolve.

 

We began expansion of our room count in Kitimat, British Columbia during the second half of 2015 to support potential liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects on the west coast of British Columbia. We were awarded a contract with LNG Canada (LNGC) for the provision of open lodge rooms and associated services that runs through September 2017. To support this contract, we have developed a new accommodations facility, named Sitka Lodge, which includes private washrooms, recreational facilities and other amenities. This lodge currently has 436 rooms, with the potential to expand to serve future accommodations demand in the region.

 

In addition, we were awarded a contract with LNGC to construct a 4,500 person workforce accommodation center (Cedar Valley Lodge) for a proposed liquefaction and export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia. Construction of Cedar Valley Lodge will not commence until LNGC’s joint venture participants have made a positive final investment decision (FID). The FID was originally planned for the end of 2016. However, FID has been delayed until an indeterminate future time. With the delay in the FID, we currently expect that LNGC will continue to utilize rooms at our Sitka Lodge through September 2017 in accordance with the terms of our contract. Should the project ultimately move forward, British Columbia LNG activity could become a material driver of future activity for our Sitka Lodge, as well as for our mobile fleet assets, which are well suited for the related pipeline construction activity.

 

However, there can be no assurance that LNGC’s joint venture participants will reach a positive FID or that our contracts with LNGC will be extended. Further, on July 25, 2017, Petronas and its partners announced the cancellation of their Pacific NorthWest (“PNW”) liquefied natural gas project they had planned to build in Port Edward, British Columbia. The LNGC project, and other potential projects in the area, not moving forward, as well as the cancellation of the PNW project, may negatively affect our future results of operations and our existing long-lived assets in Canada, including our Sitka Lodge, and may require us to record material impairment charges equal to the excess of the carrying values of these assets over their fair values.

 

Exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and each of the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar influence our U.S. dollar reported financial results. Our business has historically derived the vast majority of its revenues and operating income in Canada and Australia. These revenues and profits are translated into U.S. dollars for U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP) financial reporting purposes. The Canadian dollar was valued at an average exchange rate of U.S. $0.74 for the second quarter of 2017, compared to U.S. $0.78 for the second quarter of 2016, a decrease of approximately 4%. The Canadian dollar was valued at an average exchange rate of U.S. $0.75 for both the first half of 2017 and 2016. The Canadian dollar was valued at an exchange rate of $0.77 on June 30, 2017 and $0.74 on December 31, 2016. The Australian dollar was valued at an average exchange rate of U.S. $0.75 for both the second quarter of 2017 and 2016. The Australian dollar was valued at an average exchange rate of U.S. $0.75 for the first half of 2017 compared to U.S. $0.73 for the first half of 2016, an increase of approximately 3%. The Australian dollar was valued at an exchange rate of $0.77 on June 30, 2017 and $0.72 on December 31, 2016. These fluctuations of the Canadian and Australian dollars have had and will continue to have an impact on the translation of earnings generated from our Canadian and Australian subsidiaries and, therefore, our financial results.

We continue to monitor the global economy, the demand for crude oil, met coal and natural gas and the resultant impact on the capital spending plans of our customers in order to plan our business activities. We currently expect that our 2017 capital expenditures, exclusive of any business acquisitions, will total approximately $12 million to $15 million, compared to 2016 capital expenditures of $19.8 million. Please see “Liquidity and Capital Resources below for further discussion of 2017 capital expenditures.

 

During February 2017, we completed a public offering of 23 million common shares. We used a portion of the net proceeds of $64.8 million from the offering to repay amounts outstanding under several revolving credit facilities provided by our primary credit agreement (the Credit Agreement) and expect to use the remaining proceeds for general corporate purposes.
