HOUSTON, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Flotek Industries, Inc. ("Flotek" or the "Company") (FTK) today announced results for the three months ended June 30, 2016.
As reported on Form 10-Q filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Flotek reported revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2016, of $72.3 million, a decrease of $14.7 million, or 16.9%, compared to the same period of 2015. The decrease in revenue was driven by the continued decline in drilling activity, as indicated by the 53.2% reduction in average North American rig count for the three months ended June 30, 2016, versus the same period of 2015. Sequentially, revenue increased slightly despite the 35.1% decrease in total average North American active drilling rig count when compared to the first quarter, 2016.
Flotek reported a Loss from Operations of $2.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.
The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $1.2 million, for the three months ended June 30, 2016.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported a net loss of $2.3 million or $(0.04) per common share (fully diluted), compared to net income (excluding non-cash impairment charges) of $1.1 million, or $0.02 per common share (fully diluted) in the second quarter of 2015.
Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization, or adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure of financial performance), for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, was $0.5 million, compared to $6.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, Flotek’s non-cash share-based compensation expense was approximately $3.4 million ($2.2 million, net of tax at 35%). For the quarter ended June 30, 2015, non-cash share-based compensation was $3.4 million ($2.2 million, net of tax at 35%).
A presentation of non-cash share based compensation and a reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted EBITDA can be found at the conclusion of this release. Management believes that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors to assess and understand operating performance.
Consolidated gross margin decreased to 33.1% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, from 33.6% for the corresponding 2015 period.
“While the oilfield market continued to search for a cyclical bottom in the second quarter, the women and men of Flotek continued to work diligently to post industry-leading results in a very difficult environment,” said John Chisholm, Flotek’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Typically our most challenging quarter in any environment due to the seasonal break-up in Canada, we continued to gain international traction, especially in the Middle East, worked hard to maintain momentum with our leading-edge customized, precision chemistry in North America and returned a sense of stability to our downhole and production technologies businesses both here and abroad. Additionally, after a challenging April, Flotek’s chemistry business experienced consistent and noticeable improvement through the balance of the quarter.”
“We are pleased with continued progress in our energy chemistry business and, although the timing of completions pushed modest second quarter revenue opportunities into the third quarter, our activity levels still outpaced overall market activity,” added Chisholm. “While calling cyclical market inflection points is never an exact science, we are beginning to see encouraging signs of market stabilization as well as slow and steadying opportunistic spending by operators. The recovery will not happen all at once but there are encouraging signs that activity planning is beginning to gain traction in the more economically attractive domestic basins. We expect second-half 2016 activity to present greater opportunities than those available in the first six months of the year.”
“We continue to assess strategic opportunities for our non-chemistry energy businesses and are in discussions with a number of parties about a range of options. While there are no guarantees that these discussions will result in any strategic repositioning, we are encouraged by the interest and will continue to pursue and review opportunities that may add value and focus to our overall enterprise.”
“Even with the challenges in the short-term environment, we continue to look ahead optimistically, knowing that such short-term challenges continue to present longer-term opportunities,” added Chisholm. “For example, our focus on Prescriptive Chemistry Management™, our new fluids management effort, led to the opportunity in Argentina (as discussed in our press release earlier this week) and is creating exciting, new domestic opportunities as well. We look ahead to the second-half of 2016 and into 2017 with a sense of optimism that, as the market finds its footing and begins to reaccelerate, Flotek is well positioned to expand its leadership in oilfield chemistry technology, both here and in new global markets.”
“Nothing is likely to showcase Flotek’s talents more than its new Global Research and Innovation Center, scheduled to open in the third quarter,” concluded Chisholm. “Our focus on client collaboration centered on addressing their most arduous challenges will fit nicely with our new, state-of-the art facility which is being completed just as we turn the corner and begin the next renaissance in the oil and gas industry.”
A complete review of the Company’s second quarter financial results and quarter-end financial position can be found in the Company’s quarterly report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission this afternoon.

Loss from operations, excluding the 2015 impairment, for the three months ended June 30, 2016, decreased by $0.1 million, versus the same period of 2015, on a 48.3% revenue decrease due to continued operational cost improvements that included lower depreciation expense, a 35% year over year headcount reduction, field location closures, and other cost reduction measures.

Operational and Project Updates
As noted earlier, Flotek’s chemistry segment continues to gain traction with clients in both domestic and international markets. The Company’s hallmark CnF® completion chemistry, after a slow start to the quarter in April, showed significant recovery in the following two months.
“It is not unusual, as a market searches for a cyclical trough, for intra-quarter results to be uneven and somewhat fickle,” said Chisholm. “Our domestic sales team continues to make meaningful inroads with new prospects and continues to work with existing clients to understand the importance and benefits of appropriate loading and chemistry combinations that will enable and protect the reservoir. We remain pleased with our progress – especially given the challenging operating environment – in spreading the message about the benefit of Flotek’s chemistry to our clients and prospects.”
Flotek’s complete fluid systems package, now branded Prescriptive Chemistry Management™, is beginning to garner the attention of operators both in North America and elsewhere. While in the nascent stages, Flotek’s ability to design complete fluid systems is attractive to operators who understand the benefits of customized fluid systems for specific reservoirs and applications. With the introduction of Pressure reducing FluidTM (PrF™) and in combination with CnF® completion chemistries, Flotek is becoming a premier multi-dimensional provider of specialty oilfield chemistries that can enable and protect E&P companies’ reservoirs around the world. The addition of Flotek’s Global Research and Innovation Center should extend Flotek’s reach as well as extend the depth and breadth of client relationships as the cycle turns the corner and activity begins to accelerate in the coming quarters.
“Cyclical inflection points are not precise nor does the recovery occur in a straight line,” added Chisholm. “And, while we see increasing signs of a pick-up in activity ahead which creates optimism, we maintain a sense of realism regarding the slope of the recovery. We are excited about the future and continue to manage our business to ensure we have the capital resources to capture opportunities as they present themselves in the months ahead.”
Update on Legal Matters
As previously disclosed, the Securities and Exchange Commission is conducting a fact-finding inquiry with which the Company is fully cooperating. Various shareholder lawsuits have also been filed which the Company is seeking to dismiss.
In addition, the special technology committee continues to work with MHA Petroleum Consultants as they complete their analysis on the performance of Flotek’s CnF® completion chemistries in various basins. MHA is completing its review of data in the South Texas and Permian/Delaware Basins with the results to be released soon.
