HOUSTON, Aug. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Flotek Industries, Inc. («Flotek» or the «Company») (NYSE: FTK) today announced second quarter results for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

John W. Gibson, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer stated, «Two of our most significant customers changed ownership on accelerated timelines in the second quarter, and both buyers suspended our forecasted business immediately following their closings. Excluding these events, customer growth and diversification was strong, with a 26% sequential increase of new customers in our energy chemistry technologies business. Additionally, our Data Analytics segment improved slightly, experiencing the third sequential improvement in sales and representing our highest performing quarter since our acquisition of JP3 last year.» 

«We remain focused on engaging with the industry to demonstrate the strategic benefits of our green chemistry solutions to support their ESG and operational goals. We are encouraged by the increased interest we are seeing in our value proposition; and to further accelerate these efforts, we have structurally realigned to reallocate resources to expand our sales team. This will support our strategy to diversify our customer base and expand our channels-to-market across the energy life cycle. Additionally, we are pleased that we have secured our first international sale for JP3 with a supermajor energy company in Southeast Asia, measuring hydrocarbons in their offshore operations – an exciting new frontier for our technologies.»

«We also continued to improve our liquidity, supported by recent actions. We have completed a lease agreement for our Waller facility with Resolute Oil, converting it into a more marketable, income-generating property. Further, we are pleased we have attained full forgiveness of our JP3 PPP loan. Additionally, we are exploring a number of credit-enhancing options, including an asset-based line of credit.»

Second Quarter Financial Results

  • Consolidated Revenues: Flotek generated second quarter 2021 consolidated revenue of $9.2 million, up 3.4% from $8.9 million in the second quarter 2020, and was down 22.0% versus $11.8 million in the first quarter 2021. The sequential decline in sales was driven by the loss of revenue associated with two major energy customers through M&A activity. The year-over-year increase in revenue was driven by the acquisition of JP3 in May 2020.
  • Consolidated Operating Expenses: Consolidated operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization) were $12.1 million in the second quarter 2021, a 12.3% decline from $13.8 million in the first quarter 2021 driven by a continued reduction in costs of sales, as well as lowering operating expenses. Year over year, consolidated operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization) rose 4.1% and were flat as a percentage of revenue.
  • Corporate General & Administrative Expenses (CG&A): Corporate general and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2021 were $2.9 million, compared to $5.4 million for the second quarter of 2020 and $4.4 million for the first quarter of 2021. The declines were primarily driven by lower personnel costs and the Employee Retention Credit («ERC») recorded in the second quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA:  Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter 2021 was a loss of $6.7 million, slightly higher than the $6.5 million loss in the first quarter of 2021 and flat with the loss of $6.7 million last year. 
  • Net Loss: The Company reported a net loss for the second quarter 2021 of $6.5 million, or a loss of $0.09 per basic/diluted share, an improvement over the net loss in the second quarter 2020 of $9.6 million, or a loss of $0.14 per basic/diluted share. Net loss for the second quarter 2021 improved compared to the net loss for the first quarter of 2021 of $8.3 million, or a loss of $0.12 per basic/diluted share.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and equivalents of $27.8 million which were impacted by operating losses and partially offset by the ERC taken in the quarter. Flotek also had a combined $4.8 million of loans outstanding pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program («PPP») related to the «Cares Act.» In the second quarter 2021, JP3 was given full forgiveness of its $881,000 loan, and recently, Flotek filed for forgiveness of its PPP loan. The Company has also completed a term sheet for an asset-based line of credit.

Chemistry Technologies Segment: Energy Chemistries and Professional Chemistries

In the second quarter 2021, sales in the Chemistry Technologies segment declined 3.4% year-over-year to $7.7 million. The decrease was primarily a result of the loss of sales from two energy customers impacted by M&A activity in the second quarter. Professional Chemistries improved sequentially driven by sales of degreasers and disinfectants.

Highlights from the quarter include:

  • Entered into a multi-year lease agreement with Resolute Oil, a leader in high-quality white mineral oil. The agreement will generate other income while offsetting costs for Flotek and will allow Resolute to utilize the Company’s chemical blending facility in Waller, Texas to manufacture and globally distribute USP-NF-grade white mineral oil. Additionally, the collaboration between Flotek and Resolute will enable the companies to leverage their expertise in adjacent market verticals for mutual benefit. The agreement includes options to renew until 2036.
  • In support of the Company’s efforts to accelerate its ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) solutions for domestic and international E&P operators and service companies across the energy life cycle, Flotek realigned and reallocated resources to build out its sales and marketing talent. The reallocation will result in a net, annualized cost savings of more than $1 million in salaries and benefits, while doubling the headcount in the sales force.
  • Following a successful field trial for a customer in the Permian Basin, the customer expanded its green, reservoir-centric chemistry technologies to new unconventional basins and technology applications.
  • Secured multiple remediation treatment applications of its Complex nano-fluid® technologies, the Company’s bio-based, high-performance chemistry built upon non-toxic, plant-based solvents. The technology is enabling Flotek’s customers to cost effectively remove the use of BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) and other harmful solvents thus reducing the environmental risk of their remediation and production programs.
  • Following its strategic focus to rebuild its indirect sales channel relationships, the Company grew its customer base and domestic revenue associated with service companies by 58% and 68%, respectively, over Q1 2021.
  • Partnered with a major customer to begin an ESG scorecard assessment of their chemistry usage, identifying new opportunities to support their ESG goals.
  • Increased sales in the Professional Chemistries business, driven by strength in janitorial disinfectants and cleaning products, as well as establishing new contractual relationships with leading large-scale distributors and redistributors.

Data Analytics Segment

In the second quarter 2021, Data Analytics’ («JP3») sales were flat with first quarter 2021. Second quarter 2021 revenue was driven by the addition of new customers and new purchases by existing customers. Flotek acquired JP3 in May 2020, and as a result full quarter year-over-year results are not available for comparison. Highlights include:

  • In the second quarter 2021, JP3 completed the specifications and manufacturing of the international Verax analyzer prototype.
  • JP3 is currently undergoing the extensive process to secure the approvals from multiple international certifying bodies to ready the equipment for deployment.
  • JP3 received its first international purchase order supporting a supermajor energy company in Southeast Asia. This order also represents JP3’s first offshore deployment, expanding both its application use cases and geographical footprint.
  • International pilot programs that began in the first quarter remain on-track. 

Conference Call Details

Flotek will host a conference call on Tuesday, August 10, 2021, at 8:30 am CDT (9:30 a.m. EDT) to discuss its second quarter results for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

(1) Management believes that adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and June 30, 2020, and the three months ended March 31, 2021, is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods. Management views the expenses noted above to be outside of the Company’s normal operating results. Management analyzes operating results without the impact of the above items as an indicator of performance, to identify underlying trends in the business and cash flow from continuing operations, and to establish operational goals.
