The updated release reads:

CORRECTING and REPLACINGProPetro Reports FinancialResults for the Third Quarter of 2021

ProPetro Holding Corp. (“ProPetro” or “the Company”) (NYSE: PUMP) today announced financial and operational results for the third quarter of 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 and Recent Highlights

  • Total revenue for the quarter increased 15% to $250 million compared to $217 million for the second quarter of 2021.
  • Net loss for the quarter improved over 40% to $5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $9 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (1) for the quarter increased 18% to $42 million compared to $36 million for the second quarter of 2021.
  • Effective utilization for the third quarter was 13.8 fleets compared to 13.1 fleets for the second quarter of 2021.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter of $48 million as compared to $44 million for the second quarter of 2021.
  • Positive Free Cash Flow (2) of approximately $13 million as compared to positive Free Cash Flow of approximately $16 million for the second quarter of 2021.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a Non-GAAP financial measure and is described and reconciled to net income (loss) in the table under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

(2) Free cash flow ("FCF") is a Non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as net cash flow provided from operating activities less net cash used in investing activities. During the quarter ended September 30, 2021, net cash provided by operating activities of approximately $48 million less net cash used in investing activities of approximately $35 million resulted in free cash flow of approximately $13 million. During the quarter ended June 30, 2021, net cash provided by operating activities of $44 million less net cash used in investing activities of $29 million resulted in free cash flow of approximately $16 million.

Sam Sledge, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Demand for ProPetro’s services continued to increase in the third quarter. As activity normalizes, we see operators in the Permian placing more value on efficient service providers that can consistently deliver industry leading performance in the field. Due to tighter fundamentals in the pressure pumping space, modest net pricing increases for services were achieved across ProPetro’s operations. I’m proud of the continued commitment to safety and efficient field performance that our team delivered during the quarter. Our results reflect this dedication to excellence that is ProPetro’s hallmark.”

“We also continued our commitment to converting our legacy fleet, over time, to ESG-friendly assets. Accordingly and notably, we accelerated a portion of our 2022 capital expenditures and announced an order for 50 Tier IV Dynamic Gas Blending (“DGB”) dual-fuel pumping unit conversions for approximately $74 million. DGB fleets remain highly utilized in our market and our customers are pleased with their performance. As previously communicated, these converted units, paired with our industry-leading operational performance, will continue to position us well in a frac market that is constrained for reliable, high-performing, and lower emissions fleets.”

“Our dedication to profitable operations and ESG-friendly offerings was evident in the third quarter,” David Schorlemer, Chief Financial Officer, commented. “After full delivery of the recently ordered dual-fuel conversions, we will have 86 Tier IV DGB units in our portfolio which, in today’s market, are achieving higher relative pricing than our conventional diesel units. While not compromising our high quality conventional equipment, we maintain our resolve to support our customers by adding to our inventory of lower emissions equipment. Additionally, we believe we are operating all our fleets at industry-leading pumping productivity rates which is critical to operators focused on completions efficiencies and which ProPetro has become known for in our market.”

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Summary

Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $250 million compared to revenue of $217 million for the second quarter of 2021. The 15% increase was attributable to our increased effectively utilized fleet count and improved pricing.

Cost of services, excluding depreciation and amortization of approximately $34 million, for the third quarter of 2021 increased to $189 million from $163 million during the second quarter of 2021. Contributing to the increase were higher activity levels, reactivation costs of previously stacked equipment, wage increases and general cost inflation.

General and administrative expense of $21 million for the third quarter of 2021 increased from $18 million in the second quarter of 2021. General and administrative expense, exclusive of a net expense of $2.0 million relating to non-recurring and non-cash items (insurance recovery legal settlement of $1.0 million offset by stock-based compensation of $3.0 million), was $19 million, or 8% of revenue, for the third quarter of 2021 consistent with the second quarter of 2021.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 totaled $5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $9 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $42 million for the third quarter of 2021 from $36 million for the second quarter of 2021. The sequential improvement in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily attributable to increased activity, improved pricing and profitability offset by reactivation costs of previously stacked equipment, wage increases and general cost inflation.

Liquidity and Capital Spending

As of September 30, 2021, total cash was $85 million and the Company remained debt free. Total liquidity at the end of the third quarter of 2021 was $154 million including cash and $69 million of available capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility. As of October 29, 2021, total cash was $91 million and the Company had no debt outstanding. Total liquidity as of October 29, 2021, was $159 million including cash and $68 million of available capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

Capital expenditures incurred during the third quarter of 2021 were $53 million, the majority of which was maintenance spending. Capital expenditures paid (as appears in the Investing Activities section of the Statement of Cash Flows) in the third quarter were $35 million. Based on our current and projected activity levels for 2021 along with strategic supply chain investments previously announced, the Company expects full year 2021 incurred capital expenditures to be between $155 million and $165 million. Our full year incurred capital expenditure guidance includes approximately $30 million associated with our recent accelerated purchase of 50 Tier IV DGB conversions. Full year capital expenditures paid may differ due to the timing of payments.

Outlook

Mr. Sledge concluded, “We anticipate pressure pumping fundamentals to continue to improve as we progress into 2022 and ProPetro is well prepared to react to the modest increase in activity that we expect in the months to come. Our focus is to remain capital disciplined and operate as the most efficient frac provider in the Permian Basin.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. Net income (loss) is the GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP financial measures have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because Adjusted EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, our definitions of this non-GAAP financial measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.
