Flotek Announces Entry into Asset Based Loan Agreement
HOUSTON, August 14, 2023 - Flotek Industries, Inc. (“Flotek” or the “Company”) (NYSE: FTK) today announced that it has entered into a revolving loan and security agreement in connection with an Asset Based Loan (“ABL”) with Amerisource Funding, Inc. (“Lender”). The ABL provides for a 24-month term with up to $10 million of initial credit availability for eligible accounts receivable and eligible inventory. After closing and subject to certain conditions, including an acceptable appraisal and the pledge of real estate collateral by the Company, the credit availability is expected to be increased by the lesser of 50% of the appraised value of the real estate and $5 million. Borrowings under the ABL bear interest at the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus 2.5% per annum. The ABL also contains customary administrative and facility fees.
Borrowings under the ABL are expected to be used for working capital and other general corporate purposes. Roth Capital Partners, LLC served as financial advisor to Flotek.
Ryan Ezell Chief Executive Officer said, “Securing this loan is a significant step along the Company’s path to profitability. Our ability to secure this liquidity highlights the substantial improvement in the Company’s balance sheet and financial performance including the conversion of debt to equity driving a working capital improvement from negative $70 million at year end to positive $26 million at June 30, 2023. When combined with eight consecutive quarters of improvement in operating cash flow and our expectation of achieving positive adjusted EBITDA before year-end, this new credit facility provides us incremental momentum toward our goal of increasing shareholder value.”
