Item 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 26, 2020, U.S. Well Services, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an equity distribution agreement (the “Agreement”) with Piper Sandler & Co. (the “Agent”), through its Simmons Energy division. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company may sell, from time to time through the Agent, shares of its Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, having an aggregate offering price of up to $10,275,000 (the “Shares”). Sales of the Shares, if any, under the Agreement may be made in transactions that are deemed to be “at the market offerings” as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

The Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Agent, including for liabilities under the Securities Act, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company will pay the Agent a commission equal to 3% of the gross sales price of the Shares sold.

The Company plans to use the net proceeds from any sales pursuant to the Agreement, after deducting the sales agent’s commissions and the Company’s offering expenses, for general corporate purposes.

The Shares will be issued and sold pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No 333-230471), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 22, 2019, and a prospectus supplement thereto.

The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to complete text of the Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and incorporated by reference herein.
