RISK FACTORS

        Investing in our common stock involves risks. Before making any investment decision, you should carefully consider the specific risk factors described under the heading "Risk Factors" in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in our most recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, which are incorporated herein by reference, and those risk factors that may be included in any applicable prospectus supplement, together with all of the other information included in this prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents we incorporate by reference. Our business, financial conditions or results of operations could be materially adversely affected by any of these risk as well as other risks not currently known to us or that we currently consider immaterial. The trading price of our common stock could decline due to any of these risks, and, as a result, you may lose all or part of your investment.


THE COMPANY

        The Company was originally formed in 2000. In 2011, our prior majority owners sold their interests to a newly formed Delaware limited liability company controlled by an investor group comprised mainly of Maju Investments (Mauritius) Pte Ltd ("Maju"), CHK Energy Holdings, Inc. ("CHK") and Senja Capital Ltd ("Senja").

        We are one of the largest providers of hydraulic fracturing services in North America. Our services stimulate hydrocarbon flow from oil and natural gas wells drilled by E&P companies primarily in shale resource formations. We had 1.7 million total hydraulic horsepower across 34 fleets, with 18 fleets active as of September 30, 2019. Subsequent to September 30, 2019, we decided to dispose of certain idle equipment that will reduce our capacity to 1.4 million total hydraulic horsepower across 28 fleets. We operate in five major basins in the United States: the Permian Basin, the SCOOP/STACK Formation, the Marcellus/Utica Shale, the Eagle Ford Shale and the Haynesville Shale.

        We manufacture and refurbish many of the components used by our fleets, including consumables, such as fluid-ends. We also perform substantially all the maintenance, repair and refurbishment of our hydraulic fracturing fleets, including the reactivation of idle equipment. Our cost to produce components and reactivate fleets is significantly less than the cost to purchase comparable quality components and fleets from third-party suppliers. In addition, our capabilities allow us to perform full-scale refurbishments of our fracturing units, including refurbishing the engines and transmissions, at a cost that is approximately half the cost of utilizing an original equipment manufacturer or outside supplier.

        We designed and assembled all of our existing fleets using internal resources and are able to assemble new fleets internally at a substantial discount to the cost of buying them new from third-party providers. We have a uniform fleet of high-horsepower hydraulic fracturing equipment, designed for completions work in oil and natural gas basis requiring high levels of pressure, flow rate and sand intensity. The standardized, "plug and play" nature of our fleet provides us with several advantages including: reduced repair and maintenance costs; reduced inventory costs; the ability to redeploy equipment among operating basins; and reduced complexity in our operations, which improves our safety and operational performance.

        Our large scale and culture of innovation allows us to take advantage of leading technological solutions. We have been a fast adopter of new technologies focused on: increasing fracturing effectiveness of our customers; reducing the operating costs of our equipment; and enhancing the health, safety and environmental conditions at our well sites, which is at the core of our operations.

Registration Rights Agreement

        On February 1, 2018, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement with Maju, CHK, Senja and Hampton (the "Registration Rights Agreement"). Under the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the parties may request registration, or a demand registration, of all or a portion of their common stock, or Registrable Shares (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement), under the Securities Act. We will not be obligated to effectuate more than four demand registrations for each of Maju and CHK, and more than four demand registrations for Senja and Hampton, collectively. Any demand registration must be for an anticipated aggregate offering price of at least $50.0 million. In addition, in the event we register additional shares of common stock for sale to the public, we will be required to give notice of the registration to the parties to the Registration Rights Agreement and, subject to certain limitations, include shares of common stock held by them in the registration. The Registration Rights Agreement includes customary indemnification and contribution provisions in favor of the parties to the Registration Rights Agreement against certain losses and liabilities arising out of or based upon any filing or other disclosure made by us under the securities laws relating to such registration. We will generally pay all registration expenses in connection with our registration obligations.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

        As of the date of this prospectus, our authorized capital stock consists of 320,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, and 25,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share. At November 1, 2019, there were 107,215,035 shares of common stock and no shares of preferred stock outstanding.

        The following summary of certain material provisions of our common stock and preferred stock does not purport to be complete. You should refer to our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and our amended and restated bylaws, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Investors' Rights Agreements, which are included as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, and to the applicable provisions of the DGCL.

Common Stock

        Please see our registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-215998) filed on February 10, 2017 (together with any amendments thereof and the other documents incorporated by reference therein), which is incorporated by reference herein, for a description of our common stock.

Preferred Stock

        Our board of directors is authorized, subject to limitations prescribed by Delaware law, to issue preferred stock in one or more series, to establish from time to time the number of shares to be included in each series, and to fix the designation, powers, preferences and rights of the shares of each series and any of its qualifications, limitations or restrictions, in each case without further vote or action by our stockholders. Our board of directors can also increase or decrease the number of shares of any series of preferred stock, but not below the number of shares of that series then-outstanding, without any further vote or action by our stockholders. Our board of directors may authorize the issuance of preferred stock with voting or conversion rights that could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of our common stock. The issuance of preferred stock, while providing flexibility in connection with possible acquisitions and other corporate purposes, could, among other things, have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a change in our control and might adversely affect the market price of our common stock and the voting and other rights of the holders of our common stock. We have no current plan to issue any shares of preferred stock.

Registration Rights

        Under the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the parties may demand registration of their Registrable Shares (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) under the Securities Act. We will not be obligated to effectuate more than four demand registrations for each of Maju and CHK, and four demand registrations for Senja and Hampton collectively. Any demand registration must be for an anticipated aggregate offering price of at least $50.0 million. In addition, in the event we register additional shares of common stock for sale to the public, we will be required to give notice of the registration to the parties to the Registration Rights Agreement and, subject to certain limitations, include shares of common stock held by them in the registration. The Registration Rights Agreement includes customary indemnification and contribution provisions in favor of the parties to the Registration Rights Agreement against certain losses and liabilities arising out of or based upon any filing or other disclosure made by us under securities laws relating to such registration. We will generally pay all registration expenses in connection with our registration obligations.

Anti-takeover Effects of Provisions in our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and Amended and Restated Bylaws

        Provisions of our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws may delay or discourage transactions involving an actual or potential change in our control or change in our management, including transactions in which stockholders might otherwise receive a premium for their shares, or transactions that our stockholders might otherwise deem to be in their best interests. Therefore, these provisions could adversely affect the price of our common stock. Among other things, our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws:

    provide that our board of directors is classified into three classes of directors;

    provide that stockholders may, except as set forth in the Investors' Rights Agreements, remove directors only for cause and only with the approval of holders of at least 662/3% of our then-outstanding capital stock;

    provide that the authorized number of directors may be changed only by resolution of the board of directors;

    provide that all vacancies, including newly created directorships, may be filled by the affirmative vote of a majority of directors then in office, even if less than a quorum, except, at any time Maju, CHK, Senja and Hampton have the right to nominate a director under their respective Investors' Rights Agreement, any vacancy resulting from the death, disability, retirement, resignation or removal of a director nominated by these stockholders will be filled by the applicable nominating stockholder;

    provide that our stockholders may not take action by written consent, and may only take action at annual or special meetings of our stockholders;

    provide that stockholders, other than Maju, CHK, Senja and Hampton, seeking to present proposals before a meeting of stockholders or to nominate candidates for election as directors at a meeting of stockholders must provide notice in writing in a timely manner, and also specify requirements as to the form and content of a stockholder's notice;

    restrict the forum for certain litigation against us to Delaware;

    not provide for cumulative voting rights (therefore allowing the holders of a majority of the shares of common stock entitled to vote in any election of directors to elect all of the directors standing for election);

    provide that special meetings of our stockholders may be called only by (1) the Chairman of the board of directors, (2) our Chief Executive Officer, (3) the board of directors pursuant to a resolution adopted by a majority of the total number of authorized directors or (4) stockholders with at least 25% of our then-outstanding capital stock;

    provide that, except as set forth in the Investors' Rights Agreements, stockholders may amend our amended and restated bylaws only upon receiving at least 662/3% of the votes entitled to be cast by holders of all outstanding shares then entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, voting together as a single class; and

    provide that, except as set forth in the Investors' Rights Agreement, certain provisions of our amended and restated certificate of incorporation may only be amended upon receiving at least 662/3% of the votes entitled to be cast by holders of all outstanding shares then entitled to vote, voting together as a single class.

        Further, we have expressly opted out of Section 203 of the DGCL. However, our amended and restated certificate of incorporation contains similar provisions providing that we may not engage in

13


Table of Contents

certain "business combinations" with any "interested stockholder" for a three-year period following the time that the stockholder became an interested stockholder, unless:

    prior to such time, our board of directors approved either the business combination or the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder;

    upon consummation of the transaction that resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, the interested stockholder owned at least 85% of our voting stock outstanding at the time the transaction commenced, excluding certain shares; or

    at or subsequent to that time, the business combination is approved by our board of directors and by the affirmative vote of holders of at least 662/3% of our outstanding voting stock that is not owned by the interested stockholder.

        Generally, a "business combination" includes a merger, asset or stock sale or other transaction resulting in a financial benefit to the interested stockholder. Subject to certain exceptions, an "interested stockholder" is a person who, together with that person's affiliates and associates, owns, or within the previous three years owned, 15% or more of our outstanding voting stock. For purposes of this section only, "voting stock" has the meaning given to it in Section 203 of the DGCL. Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that Maju and CHK and their affiliates and any of their direct or indirect transferees and any group as to which such persons are a party, do not constitute "interested stockholders" for purposes of this provision.

        Under certain circumstances, this provision will make it more difficult for a person who would be an "interested stockholder" to effect various business combinations with the Company for a three-year period. This provision may encourage companies interested in acquiring the Company to negotiate in advance with our board of directors because the stockholder approval requirement would be avoided if our board of directors approves either the business combination or the transaction which results in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder. These provisions also may have the effect of preventing changes in our board of directors and may make it more difficult to accomplish transactions which stockholders may otherwise deem to be in their best interests.

Choice of Forum

        Unless we consent to the selection of an alternative forum, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware will be, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the sole and exclusive forum for any derivative action or proceeding brought on our behalf; any action asserting a claim of breach of fiduciary duty owed by any of our directors, officers or other employees to us or to our stockholders; any action asserting a claim against us arising pursuant to the DGCL or our amended and restated certificate of incorporation or our amended and restated bylaws or as to which the DGCL confers jurisdiction on the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware; or any action asserting a claim against us that is governed by the internal affairs doctrine.

Transfer Agent and Registrar

        The transfer agent and registrar of our common stock is American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC.

Listing

        Our common stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "FTSI."

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

        We are registering 76,396,159 shares of our common stock to permit the resale of these shares by the selling stockholders from time to time after the date of this prospectus. As of the date of this prospectus, we have not been advised by the selling stockholders as to any plan of distribution. The selling stockholders will act independently of us in making decisions with respect to the timing, manner and size of each sale. The selling stockholders, or their permitted transferees, may offer and sell all or a portion of the common stock covered by this prospectus from time to time, in one or more or any combination of the following transactions:

    on the New York Stock Exchange, in the over-the-counter market or on any other national securities exchange on which our securities are listed;

    in privately negotiated transactions;

    in underwritten transactions;

    in a block trade in which a broker-dealer will attempt to sell the offered shares of common stock as agent but may purchase and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;

    through purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account pursuant to this prospectus;

    in ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker solicits purchasers;

    through the writing of options (including put or call options), whether the options are listed on an options exchange or otherwise, relating to the shares of common stock offered by this prospectus;

    in short sales of the offered shares of common stock entered into after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part; or

    through any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.

        The selling stockholders may sell the shares of common stock at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices. As such, the offering price of the common stock may be higher or lower than the market price of our common stock on the New York Stock Exchange or any other exchange or market.

        The selling stockholders may also sell our common stock short and deliver the common stock to close out their short positions or loan or pledge the common stock to broker-dealers that in turn may sell the common stock. The shares of common stock may be sold directly or through broker-dealers acting as principal or agent or pursuant to distribution by one or more underwriters on a firm commitment or best-efforts basis. The selling stockholders may also enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions. In connection with such transactions, broker-dealers or other financial institutions may engage in short sales of our common stock in the course of hedging the positions they assume with the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders may also enter into options or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of the common stock offered by this prospectus, which common stock such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemental or amended to reflect such transaction). In connection with an underwritten offering, underwriters or agents may receive compensation in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the selling stockholders or from purchases of the offered common stock for whom they may act as agents. In addition, underwriters may sell the common stock to or through dealers, and those dealers may receive compensation in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the underwriters and/or commissions from the purchasers for whom they may act as

15


Table of Contents

agents. The selling stockholders and any underwriters, dealers or agents participating in a distribution of the common stock may be deemed to be "underwriters" within the meaning of the Securities Act, and any profit on the sale of the common stock realized by the selling stockholders and any commissions received by broker-dealers may be deemed to be underwriting discounts commissions under the Securities Act.

        The selling stockholders may agree to indemnify an underwriter, broker-dealer or agent against certain liabilities related to the sale of the shares of common stock, including liabilities under the Securities Act. The selling stockholders have advised us that they have not entered into any such agreements, understandings or arrangements with any underwriters or broker-dealers regarding the sale of their common stock; provided, however, upon our notification by a selling stockholder that any material arrangement has been entered into with an underwriter or broker-dealer for the sale of the common stock, we will file a supplement to this prospectus, if required, pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act, disclosing certain material information, including: the name of the selling stockholder; the number of shares of common stock being offered; the terms of the offering; the names of the participating underwriters, broker-dealers or agents; any discounts, commissions or other compensation paid to underwriters or broker-dealers and any discounts, commissions or concessions allowed or reallowed or paid by any underwriters to dealers; the public offering price; and other material terms of the offering.

        The selling stockholders are subject to the applicable provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations under the Exchange Act, including Regulation M. This regulation may limit the timing of purchases and sales of any of the shares of common stock offered in this prospectus by the selling stockholders. The anti-manipulation rules under the Exchange Act may apply to sales of the common stock in the market and to the activities of the selling stockholders. Furthermore, Regulation M may restrict the ability of any person engaged in the distribution of the shares of common stock to engage in market-making activities for the particular common stock being distributed for a period of up to five business days before the distribution. The restrictions may affect the marketability of the common stock and the ability of any person or entity to engage in market-making activities for the common stock.

        To the extent required, this prospectus may be amended and/or supplemented from time to time to describe a specific plan of distribution. Instead of selling the common stock under this prospectus, the selling stockholders may sell the shares of common stock in compliance with the provisions of Rule 144 under the Securities Act, if applicable, or pursuant to other available exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

Item 15.    Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

        We are incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware. Section 145 of the DGCL provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify any persons who are, or are threatened to be made, parties to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of such corporation), by reason of the fact that such person was an officer, director, employee or agent of such corporation, or is or was serving at the request of such corporation as an officer, director, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise. The indemnity may include expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding, provided that such person acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the corporation's best interests and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was illegal. A Delaware corporation may indemnify any persons who are, or are threatened to be made, a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that such person was a director, officer, employee or agent of such corporation, or is or was serving at the request of such corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise. The indemnity may include expenses (including attorneys' fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit provided such person acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the corporation's best interests except that no indemnification is permitted without judicial approval if the officer or director is adjudged to be liable to the corporation. Where an officer or director is successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action referred to above, the corporation must indemnify him or her against the expenses that such officer or director has actually and reasonably incurred. Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides for the indemnification of our directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted under the DGCL.

        Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL permits a corporation to provide in its certificate of incorporation that a director of the corporation shall not be personally liable to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duties as a director, except for liability for any:

    transaction from which the director derives an improper personal benefit;

    act or omission not in good faith or that involves intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;            

II-1


Table of Contents

    unlawful payment of dividends, unlawful stock purchase or redemption of shares; or

    breach of a director's duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders.

        Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation includes such provisions. Expenses incurred by any officer or director in defending any such action, suit or proceeding in advance of its final disposition shall be paid by us upon delivery to us of an undertaking, by or on behalf of such director or officer, to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such director or officer is not entitled to be indemnified by us.

        Section 174 of the DGCL provides, among other things, that a director who willfully or negligently approves of an unlawful payment of dividends or an unlawful stock purchase or redemption may be held liable for such actions. A director who was either absent when the unlawful actions were approved, or dissented at the time, may avoid liability by causing his or her dissent to such actions to be entered in the books containing minutes of the meetings of the board of directors at the time such action occurred or immediately after such absent director receives notice of the unlawful acts.

        We have entered, and intend to continue to enter, into indemnification agreements with each of our directors and officers, a form of which is attached to this registration statement as an exhibit. These agreements require us to indemnify such persons to the fullest extent permitted under Delaware law against liabilities that may arise by reason of their service to us, and to advance expenses incurred as a result of any proceeding against them as to which they could be indemnified.

        We have an insurance policy covering our officers and directors with respect to certain liabilities, including liabilities arising under the Securities Act or otherwise.

        Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers or persons controlling our company pursuant to the foregoing provisions, we have been informed that, in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is therefore unenforceable.

Item 16.    Exhibits and Financial Schedules.

        A list of exhibits included as part of this registration statement is set forth in the Exhibit Index, which is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 17.    Undertakings.

        The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

            (1)   to file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement: (i) to include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act; (ii) to reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the "Calculation of Registration Fee" table in the effective registration statement; and (iii) to include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement; provided, however, that paragraphs (i), (ii) and (iii) do not apply if the information required to be

II-2


Table of Contents

    included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement.

            (2)   that, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

            (3)   to remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

            (4)   that, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act to any purchaser: (i) each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and (ii) each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5) or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii) or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section 10(a) of the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which the prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.

            (5)   that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of registrant's annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan's annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in this registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

            (6)   insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
