HomeInvestor RelationsPress ReleasesFlotek Industries, Inc. Announces 2016 Financial and Operating Results and Conference Call Information

HOUSTON, FEBRUARY 8, 2016 -- Flotek Industries, Inc. ("Flotek" or the "Company") (NYSE: FTK) today announced results for the three- and twelve-months ended December 31, 2016. 

Results Highlights:

• As part of our strategic repositioning, we are executing a plan to divest our Drilling Technologies and Production Technologies segments. Effective December 31, 2016, Flotek has classified the assets, liabilities, and results of operations for these two segments as “Discontinued Operations” for all periods presented. 

The following discussion points relate to Flotek’s continuing operations.

• Flotek announced 2016 annual revenue of $262.8 million, a decrease of 2.7% from 2015 levels. Fourth quarter revenue of $70.6 million was 10.5% higher than fourth quarter 2015 revenue and 9.8% higher than third quarter 2016—a remarkable outcome in the face of a 43% drop in completion activity, according to the U.S. EIA. 

• Sales volumes of Flotek’s Complex nano-Fluid® (CnF®) suite of completion chemistries increased 14.7% in 2016 when compared to 2015 levels. Fourth quarter volumes increased 12.4% sequentially. Year-over-year revenues were up 11.6% while fourth quarter revenues grew 21.4% sequentially. 

• Consumer & Industrial Chemistry Technologies (CICT) reported record revenue of $74.6 million for the full year 2016, up 32.3% year-over-year.

• Flotek is continuing to expand its global footprint across Asia, Middle East and Eastern Europe, improving international revenues by 21.2% compared to the prior year period.

• For the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, Flotek reported net income from continuing operations of $1.9 million or $0.03 per common share (fully diluted).  For the three months ended December 31, 2016, Flotek reported net income from continuing operations of $3.9 million, or $0.07 per common share (fully diluted).

• Michelle Adams, worldwide vice president of IBM Watson Platform, has joined Flotek’s Board of Directors, effective January 30, 2017, joining the Governance Committee.

• Flotek’s acquisition of International Polymerics Inc. (IPI) in August continues to provide a strategically-located staging center in the Permian Basin that will help our cost curve as we serve the many independent and innovative E&P companies in the fast-changing and most active area in the U.S. shale industry.

• The innovative virtual Flotek Store provides a more direct communication with exploration & production operating companies to help better serve their needs, while significantly reducing costs for our clients.

• In our commitment to innovation and research, Flotek has filed or are pending the receipt of more than 70 patents, including over 40 unique CnF® formulations. 

“The demand for Flotek’s suite of consumer and industrial chemistry products and our clients’ trust in our CnF® technology led to a stronger than expected fourth quarter,” said John Chisholm, Flotek’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “With numerous shale oil producers and oilfield service suppliers now forecasting a low double-digit growth rate in 2017, Flotek is well positioned to capture opportunities through existing and prospective drillers seeking to improve their well output.”

“As we announced in January, Michelle Adams, worldwide vice president of IBM Watson Platform, has joined Flotek’s Board of Directors, bringing a wealth of first class expertise in innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability. We are excited to have her on our team and expect to leverage her unique background in technology and cognitive learning.”

Full-Year 2016 Results

As reported in the Form 10-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Flotek reported revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016 of $262.8 million, a decrease of $7.2 million, or 2.7%, compared to the year ended December 31, 2015. Reduced demand from oilfield market activity contributed to the annual decline, but was partially offset by increased citrus terpene prices in our CICT business.

Flotek reported net income from continuing operations for the year ended December 31, 2016 of $1.9 million, a decrease of $5.3 million, or 73.4%, compared to net income from continuing operations for the year ended December 31, 2015.

The company recorded an income tax expense of $1.2 million, yielding an effective tax rate of 39.3% for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to an income tax expense of $3.5 million yielding an effective tax rate of 32.7% in 2015.

For the year ended December 31, 2016 and excluding the impact of discontinued operations, the company reported a net income of $1.9 million or $0.03 per share (fully diluted), compared to net income of $7.2 million or $0.13 per share (fully diluted) for the year ended December 31, 2015.

Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization, or Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure of financial performance), excluding the impact of discontinuing operations for the year ended December 31, 2016, was $15.6 million, compared to $20.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. Flotek recognized a one-time gain of $12.7 million related to disgorgement of potential short-swing trading profits from a stockholder.

For the year ended December 31, 2016, Flotek’s non-cash share-based compensation expense, excluding the impact of discontinuing operations, was approximately $11.9 million, compared to $12.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2015.

A presentation of non-cash share based compensation and a reconciliation of GAAP net income to EBITDA can be found at the conclusion of this release.

Consolidated gross margin decreased to 34.5% for the year ended December 31, 2016, from 35.7% in 2015, primarily attributable to increased inventory costs and direct costs associated with manufacturing in the Consumer and Industrial Chemistry Technologies segment, partially offset by higher volumes of all CnF® products sold in Energy Chemistry Technologies.
