Dril-Quip, Inc., a leading developer, manufacturer and provider of highly engineered equipment and services for the global offshore and onshore oil and gas industry, and Innovex Downhole Solutions, Inc. (Innovex), a global leading provider of mission-critical technologies and services across the well lifecycle for the oil and gas industry, announced a definitive agreement under which Dril-Quip and Innovex will merge in an all-stock transaction to create a unique energy industrial platform. Upon closing of the transaction, Dril-Quip stockholders will own approximately 52% and Innovex stockholders will own approximately 48% of the combined company on a fully diluted basis.

The combination brings together the two companies’ complementary and curated product portfolios, best-in-class safety, service quality, global infrastructures and customer relationships. With a large suite of highly engineered technologies, the combined company will provide customers with innovative solutions for both onshore and offshore applications, driving a more stable and diverse revenue mix. The combined company is expected to derive approximately 56% of its revenue from the international and offshore markets and approximately 44% from the North American onshore markets (US and Canada) and would have more than $1.0 billion in annual revenue and $221 million in adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (adjusted EBITDA) including synergies in fiscal 2023 (all figures on a pro forma, full-year 2023 combined basis). The combined company will have a strong balance sheet with a pro forma, year-end 2023 net cash position of $99 million.

Dril-Quip President and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Bird said: “I’m excited for the opportunities this transaction will provide Dril-Quip’s stakeholders. This transaction is aligned with the growth strategy we have been pursuing and will advance our position as a leading developer and provider of highly engineered and innovative equipment, services and technologies for the global oil and gas industry. The multi-decade legacy and strong reputation of Dril-Quip’s technology, brand, and expertise, paired with the customer-centric, innovative and execution-oriented cultures of both companies will help us continue to manufacture and deliver innovative products and service to our customers and create opportunities for our employees. Additionally, the complementary global scale and product breadth of the combined company will provide a strong platform for organic revenue growth, strong EBITDA margins and the potential for significant free cash flow generation to drive value for our stockholders.”

Innovex Chief Executive Officer Adam Anderson said: “We are bringing together the great traditions and capabilities of Dril-Quip with Innovex’s proven operating model. By empowering the combined organization using Innovex’s collaborative ‘No Barriers’ culture, we will unleash the capabilities of the combined company to create a unique energy industrial platform with durable margins, low capital intensity and the potential for superior returns on capital throughout industry cycles.”
