HOUSTON, March 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Flotek Industries, Inc. ("Flotek" or the "Company") (NYSE: FTK) today announced results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2020.

Flotek Industries, Inc. (PRNewsfoto/Flotek Industries, Inc.)

"We faced extraordinary challenges in 2020, but we remained focused and opportunistic in the face of a global pandemic and an extremely volatile macro-environment. While we continue to face challenges of lower global demand and industry pressures impacting both segments, we have improved our operational efficiencies and found new ways to create, diversify, and grow profitable revenue, resulting in improved adjusted EBITDA on approximately half the revenue year-over-year," said John W. Gibson, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer.

"It was a transformational year for Flotek for multiple reasons. Flotek made investments in the business to create a strong foundation for 2021 and beyond. Through our acquisition of JP3, we diversified our revenue stream across the hydrocarbon value chain and are well-positioned to capture long-term growth as early adopters of the digital transformation of chemistry. Second, with the launch of our cleaning and sanitizing product lines, we leveraged our existing supply chain, facilities, and chemistries to generate margin-accretive revenue. Finally, we have enhanced our focus on ESG and are well positioned to partner with customers seeking to improve their ESG performance with our products and services that help to improve the safety, reliability, and efficiency of their operations. Looking ahead, we seek to grow our energy-focused products and services internationally, increase the domestic market share of our products as the energy market recovers in the latter half of 2021 and expand our ESG-related product offerings."

Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2020 Financial Results

  • Consolidated Revenues: Flotek generated fourth quarter 2020 consolidated revenue of $12.1 million, down 5.0% from $12.7 million in the third quarter, and below $19.5 million in the fourth quarter last year. The decline continues to be driven by volatility in the macro-environment for U.S. onshore drilling and completion activity, further impacted by global economic events, as well as concerns related to COVID-19 pressuring productivity and customer demand across the oil and gas market.
  • Loss from Continuing Operations: The Company reported a loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter 2020 of $17.7 million, or a loss of $0.30 per diluted share, compared to a loss from continuing operations in the fourth quarter 2019 of $36.9 million, or a loss of $0.64 per diluted share.
    • Terpene Agreement: The loss from continuing operations includes a loss of $9.4 million in the fourth quarter related to the Company's amended terpene agreement due to adjustments to the Company's expected usage of terpene.
  • Consolidated Operating Expenses: Consolidated operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization) were $24.3 million in the fourth quarter 2020, which contributed to a 42.6% decline from $42.4 million in the same period last year. The decline was driven by a reduction in overall compensation spending, lower discretionary spending, including professional fees, partially offset by one-time severance charges and discretionary bonuses.
  • Corporate, General, & Administrative Expenses: Corporate general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $3.7 million compared to $9.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter 2020 was a loss of $6.8 million, which narrowed from the loss of $8.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2019, driven by headcount and expense reductions in freight, equipment rentals, and travel & entertainment.
  • For the full-year 2020, Flotek generated revenue of $53.1 million, a loss from continuing operations of $136.5 million, compared to revenue of $119.4 million, a loss from continuing operations of $76.1 million for the full-year 2019.
  • Full-year 2020 adjusted EBITDA loss was $26.2 million, compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $33.1 million for the full-year 2019.
  • For the full-year 2020, the Company's cost-cutting and process improvement initiatives reduced annualized expenses by approximately 40.4% across the enterprise.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2020, the Company had cash and equivalents of $38.7 million. As previously disclosed on April 16, 2020, the Company received a $4.8 million loan, and JP3 received a $0.9 million loan, both pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, known as the "CARES" Act.

Chemistry Technologies Segment

In the fourth quarter, sales in the Chemistry Technologies segment declined sequentially 10.2% to $10.8 million. The decline was primarily attributed to ongoing market volatility in the macro-environment impacting energy supply and demand, as well as fourth quarter seasonality as several customers in the energy chemistry business temporarily shut down operations at year-end.

During the fourth quarter, Flotek implemented several initiatives with the goal to be the collaborative partner of choice for chemistry technology. 

Energy Chemistry

  • The Company relaunched the Flotek brand to elevate its enhanced value approach.
  • The Company is targeting a customer base with sustainable activity and operational programs, particularly in unconventional shale markets, whose strategic objectives align with Flotek's proven performance and value proposition of cost-effective chemistry solutions that can improve production at lower cost per barrel produced.
  • Flotek deployed sustainable chemistry technologies for customer efficacy and profitability, offering cost-effective, greener and safer chemistry solutions, for companies seeking to improve their ESG performance.

Professional Chemistry

  • Flotek expanded its product offerings and technologies and announced the launch of its new professional chemistries brand Flotek Protekol™, which includes a robust line of surface cleaners, degreasers, wipes, disinfectants and sanitizers.
  • As the Company builds its long-term business strategy, it has partnered with Matt Lazlo as a strategic advisor. A former Clorox executive, Lazlo brings more than 25 years of experience serving in senior business, sales and marketing roles across consumer, commercial, retail, e-Commerce and industrial markets for Clorox.
  • The Company executed a strategic agreement with a major global manufacturer of specialty and intermediate chemicals to produce and package EPA-registered disinfectant wipes.

Data Analytics Segment

In the fourth quarter, Data Analytics' sales improved 91.8% sequentially to $1.3 million, primarily driven by an increase in new sales in North America, as well as maintenance and support services.

During the fourth quarter, Flotek continued to enhance its offerings and increase its efficiency in delivering solutions, while targeting new customers and markets to transform their businesses through real-time data and analytics. Highlights include:

  • Progressed its international market entry strategy, continuing meaningful engagement with potential customers in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, and securing its first pilot in the Middle East.
  • Implemented software development enhancements by accelerating Artificial Intelligence and machine learning capabilities, improving the precision of our measurement between batches of refined hydrocarbon products – reducing time, waste and money spent.
  • Began streamlining the Company's sampling process to improve operational efficiencies, reduce costs to customers and increase speed to commissioning JP3's systems to customers.

Board of Directors Updates

  • Kevin Brown, a director that joined the Company's Board in June 2020 following the acquisition of JP3, passed away unexpectedly in January. Harsha Agadi has been appointed to the Audit Committee to replace Mr. Brown.
  • Flotek has created the Risk and Sustainability Committee, a new committee designated to oversee risk, which will be chaired by director Mike Fucci.
  • Director Michelle M. Adams will not stand for re-election at the 2021 annual meeting of stockholders of the Company, due to outside demands on her time and her schedule.
  • The Board has engaged Heidrick & Struggles to conduct the search for a replacement director.

(1) Management believes that adjusted EBITDA for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, and the three months ended December 31, 2020, 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.

(2) Results of the Company's Consumer and Industrial Chemistry Technologies ("CICT") segment are presented as discontinued operations for all periods.

(3) Prior periods presented for 2019 have been adjusted to reflect revisions to results determined not to be material to those prior periods.
