On April 30, 2020, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company confirmed a notice and related documentation from Greg Powell, Executive Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer, pursuant to his employment agreement asserting that certain synergy achievements had been reached, which triggered the Value Creation Bonus under his employment agreement.

Upon such separation, and subject to the terms of his employment agreement, Mr. Powell will be eligible to receive the severance called for in his employment agreement, payable in accordance with the terms thereof.

Item 8.01. Other Events.
The Company is including the risk factor below for the purpose of supplementing and updating the risk factor disclosure contained in Part I-Item 1A-Risk Factors in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. The following risk factor should be read in conjunction with the risk factors described in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K.
The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced demand for our services and adversely impacted our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including actions taken by businesses and governments, have resulted in a significant and swift reduction in international and U.S. economic activity. These effects have adversely affected the demand for oil and natural gas, which has resulted in a reduction in demand for our services. This demand reduction has begun to have, and is expected to continue to have for the duration of such reduced demand for our services, an adverse impact on our revenue, which may be material.
While the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet known, we are closely monitoring the effects of the pandemic on commodity demands, our customers, our suppliers, and on our operations and employees. These effects have included, and may continue to include, adverse revenue effects; disruptions to our operations; customer shutdowns of oil and gas exploration and production; employee impacts from illness, school closures and other community response measures; and temporary closures of our facilities or the facilities of our customers and suppliers. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic also may have a material adverse impact on the ability of the Company to collect its accounts receivable as customers face higher liquidity and solvency risks and may be unable to continue to operate as a going concern in the future. We may also see an increase in the volume of litigation, including contract claims and employment related claims.
Disruption caused by business responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, including working remote arrangements, may create increased vulnerability to cybersecurity incidents, including breaches of information systems security, which could damage our reputation and commercial relationships, disrupt operations, increase costs and/or decrease revenues, and expose us to claims





from customers, suppliers, financial institutions, regulators, employees and others, which, individually or in the aggregate could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
The COVID-19 pandemic could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition, as the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to affect our business, results of operations and financial condition will depend on various factors and future developments beyond our control, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time. Such developments include the geographic spread, severity and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, the extent and duration of the impact on the U.S. and global economy (including the resulting economic downturn and recession), the actions that have been and may be taken by businesses and governments in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the speed and effectiveness of responses to combat the COVID-19 virus and the response of citizens to any such actions now or in the future.
The COVID-19 pandemic, and the volatile regional and global economic conditions stemming from it, could also exacerbate other risk factors that we identify in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.
The COVID-19 pandemic could also have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition in a manner that is not currently known to us or that we do not currently believe presents significant risks to our operations.
