Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 18, 2022, U.S. Well Services, LLC (“USWS”), a subsidiary of U.S. Well Services, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a promissory note (the “Note”) in favor of Equify Financial, LLC, as lender (“Equify”), which provides for the debt financing of certain equipment to be used by USWS in building an electric frac fleet (the “Equipment”). Among other things, the Note:

 

   

has a principal amount of $12,500,000,

 

   

has a maturity date of August 1, 2027,

 

   

is payable by USWS to Equify in equal monthly installments of principal in the amount of $208,334.00, together with all accrued and unpaid interest on the outstanding principal balance of the Note, commencing on September 1, 2022 and continuing thereafter until the maturity date, and

 

   

bears interest at a rate per annum equal to the lesser of (i) the sum of (A) “prime rate” as published in the Wall Street Journal from time to time plus (B) 9.25%, and (ii) the maximum amount of interest allowed by applicable law.

The obligations of USWS under the Note are secured by a first priority lien in favor of Equify in the Equipment, as set forth in the Security Agreement by USWS in favor of Equify dated July 18, 2022 (the “Security Agreement”). In addition, the Company entered into a guaranty (the “Guaranty”) pursuant to which it guaranteed to Equify the full performance and payment of all indebtedness owed by USWS to Equify.

Dan Wilks and Farris Wilks, together with certain of their affiliates, (collectively, the “Wilks Parties”) collectively hold a controlling interest in ProFrac Holdings Corp. (“ProFrac”) and in Equify. Certain Wilks Parties also own certain securities of the Company. As previously announced, on June 21, 2022 the Company entered into an agreement and plan of merger with ProFrac and Thunderclap Merger Sub I, Inc., an indirect subsidiary of ProFrac (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which and subject to the conditions in the agreement, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company, with the Company surviving as an indirect subsidiary of ProFrac.

The foregoing summaries of the material terms of the Note and the Security Agreement are not complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, reference to the complete text of the Note, the Security Agreement and the Guaranty, which are filed as Exhibit 10.1, Exhibit 10.2 and Exhibit 10.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
