NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


Note 1 — Organization and Significant Accounting Policies
Organization and Nature of Operations
Flotek Industries, Inc. (“Flotek” or the “Company”) is a global, diversified, technology-driven supplier of energy chemistries and consumer and industrial chemistries and is a global developer and supplier of drilling, completion, and production technologies and related services.
The Company’s strategic focus includes energy related chemistry technologies, drilling and production technologies, and consumer and industrial chemistry technologies. Within its energy related technologies, the Company provides oilfield specialty chemistries and logistics, downhole drilling tools, and production related tools used in the energy and mining industries. Flotek’s products and services enable customers to drill wells more efficiently, to realize increased production from both new and existing wells, and to decrease future well operating costs. Major customers include leading oilfield service providers, pressure-pumping service companies, onshore and offshore drilling contractors, major and independent oil and gas exploration and production companies, national and state-owned oil companies, and international supply chain management companies. Within consumer and industrial chemistry technologies, the Company provides products for the flavor and fragrance industry and the industrial chemical industry. Major customers include food and beverage companies, fragrance companies, and companies providing household and industrial cleaning products.
The Company is headquartered in Houston, Texas, with operating locations in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, Canada, the Netherlands, and the Middle East. Flotek’s products are marketed both domestically and internationally, with international presence and/or representation in over 20 countries.
Flotek was initially incorporated under the laws of the Province of British Columbia on May 17, 1985. On October 23, 2001, Flotek changed its corporate domicile to the state of Delaware.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying footnotes (collectively the “Financial Statements”) reflect all adjustments, in the opinion of management, necessary for fair presentation of the financial condition and results of operations for the periods presented. All such adjustments are normal and recurring in nature. The Financial Statements, including selected notes, have been prepared in accordance with applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting and do not include all information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for comprehensive financial statement reporting. These interim Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 (“Annual Report”). A copy of the Annual Report is available on the SEC’s website, www.sec.gov, under the Company’s ticker symbol (“FTK”) or on Flotek’s website, www.flotekind.com. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and reported amounts of revenue and expenses. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
Reclassifications
Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. The reclassifications did not impact net income (loss).

FLOTEK INDUSTRIES, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 2 — Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Application of New Accounting Standards
Effective January 1, 2016, the Company adopted the accounting guidance in Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2015-01, “Simplifying Income Statement Presentation by Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items.” This ASU eliminates from U.S. GAAP the concept of extraordinary items and the need for an entity to separately classify, present, and disclose extraordinary events and transactions, while retaining certain presentation and disclosure guidance for items that are unusual in nature or occur infrequently. Implementation of this standard did not have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
Effective January 1, 2016, the Company adopted the accounting guidance in ASU No. 2015-02, “Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis.” The amendment eliminates the deferral of certain consolidation standards for entities considered to be investment companies and modifies the consolidation analysis performed on certain types of legal entities. Implementation of this standard did not have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
Effective January 1, 2016, the Company adopted the accounting guidance in ASU No. 2015-03, “Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs.” The accounting guidance requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be reported on the Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability. In addition, the Company adopted the accounting guidance in ASU No. 2015-15, which provides additional guidance related to the presentation or subsequent measurement of debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements. An entity may present debt issuance costs as an asset and subsequently amortize the deferred debt issuance costs ratably over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, regardless of whether there are any outstanding borrowings. Implementation of these standards did not have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
Effective January 1, 2016, the Company adopted the accounting guidance in ASU No. 2015-16, “Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments.” This standard replaces the requirement that an acquirer in a business combination account for measurement period adjustments retrospectively with a requirement that an acquirer recognize adjustments to the provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustment amounts are determined. The acquirer is required to record, in the same period’s financial statements, the effect on earnings of changes in depreciation, amortization, or other income effects, if any, as a result of the change to the provisional amounts, calculated as if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date. The guidance is to be applied prospectively to adjustments to provisional amounts that occur after the effective date of the guidance. Implementation of this standard did not have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
New Accounting Requirements and Disclosures
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers.” The ASU will supersede most of the existing revenue recognition requirements in U.S. GAAP and will require entities to recognize revenue at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring goods or services to a customer. The new standard also requires significantly expanded disclosures regarding the qualitative and quantitative information of an entity’s nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14, which deferred the effective date by one year to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that reporting period. Early adoption is permitted, but not before the original effective date of reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, which improves the operability and understandability of the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations. In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-10, which clarifies identifying performance obligations and the licensing implementation guidance. In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-11, which rescinds certain SEC Staff Observer comments that are codified in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, effective upon adoption of ASU 2014-09, and ASU No. 2016-12, which reduces the potential for diversity in practice at initial application and reduces the cost and complexity of applying Topic 606 both at transition and on an ongoing basis. The Company is currently evaluating the impact these pronouncements will have on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, “Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory.” This standard requires management to measure inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Net realizable value is the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation. The pronouncement is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period and should be applied retrospectively, with early application permitted.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact the pronouncement will have on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

FLOTEK INDUSTRIES, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, “Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes.” This standard eliminates the current requirement for organizations to present deferred tax assets and liabilities as current and noncurrent in a classified balance sheet. Instead, organizations will be required to classify all deferred tax assets and liabilities as noncurrent. The pronouncement is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the pronouncement will have on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases.” This standard requires the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases under previous U.S. GAAP. The pronouncement is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that reporting period and should be applied using a modified retrospective transition approach, with early application permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the pronouncement will have on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, “Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting.” This standard simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. The pronouncement is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the pronouncement will have on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, “Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments.” This standard replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current U.S. GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. The pronouncement is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption for the fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the pronouncement will have on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No 2016-15, “Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments.” This standard addresses eight specific cash flow issues with the objective of reducing the existing diversity in practice. The pronouncement is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the pronouncement will have on the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
Note 3 — Impairment of Inventory and Long-Lived Assets
During the three months ended March 31, 2016, as a result of changes in the oil and gas industry that occurred since the beginning of 2016 and the corresponding impact on the Company’s business outlook, the Company evaluated the direction of its business activities. Crude oil prices, which appeared to have stabilized during the fourth quarter of 2015, fell further during the first quarter of 2016, decreasing approximately 21% from average prices seen in the fourth quarter of 2015. The U.S. drilling rig count declined from 698 at December 31, 2015 to 450 at April 1, 2016, a decline of 35.5%.
Due to the decreased rig activity and its impact on management’s expectations for future market activity, the Company further refocused operations of its Drilling Technologies segment. The Company decided to exit the business of building and repairing motors in all domestic markets. In addition, changes in drilling technique, including further escalation of the move to a dominance of pad drilling, reduced the marketability of certain other inventory items. The focus of the Production Technologies segment is being shifted to its new technologies for electric submersible pumps for the oil and gas industry and for hydraulic pumping units. Inventory associated with older technologies for these items has been evaluated for impairment. As a result of these changes in focus and projected declines in asset utilization, the Company recorded a pre-tax impairment of inventories as noted below.
Changes in the business climate noted above and increasing operating losses experienced within the Drilling Technologies and Production Technologies segments during the three months ended March 31, 2016, caused the Company to test asset groups within these two segments for recoverability. Recoverability of the carrying value of the asset groups was based upon estimated future cash flows while taking into consideration various assumptions and estimates, including future use of the assets, remaining useful life of the assets, and eventual disposition of the assets. Undiscounted estimated cash flows of two asset groups associated with domestic operations in the Drilling Technologies segment did not exceed the carrying value of the respective asset groups. Therefore, the Company performed an analysis of discounted future cash flows to determine the fair value of each of these two asset groups. As a result of this testing, the Company recorded a pre-tax impairment of long-lived assets as noted below.

In addition, during the three months ended June 30, 2015, as a result of decreased rig activity and its impact on management’s expectations for future market activity, the Company refocused the Drilling Technologies segment to businesses and markets that have the best opportunity for profitable growth in the future. In addition, the Company shifted the focus of the Production Technologies segment to oil production markets and away from coal bed methane markets. As a result of these changes in focus and projected declines in asset utilization, the Company recorded pre-tax impairment charges as noted below.

Credit Facility
On May 10, 2013, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries (the “Borrowers”) entered into an Amended and Restated Revolving Credit, Term Loan and Security Agreement (the “Credit Facility”) with PNC Bank, National Association (“PNC Bank”). The Company may borrow under the Credit Facility for working capital, permitted acquisitions, capital expenditures and other corporate purposes. Under terms of the Credit Facility, as amended, the Company has total borrowing availability of $65 million under a revolving credit facility and a term loan.
The Credit Facility is secured by substantially all of the Company’s domestic real and personal property, including accounts receivable, inventory, land, buildings, equipment and other intangible assets. The Credit Facility contains customary representations, warranties, and both affirmative and negative covenants. The Credit Facility restricts the payment of cash dividends on common stock and limits the amount that may be used to repurchase common stock and preferred stock. In the event of default, PNC Bank may accelerate the maturity date of any outstanding amounts borrowed under the Credit Facility.
Effective September 30, 2016, the Company entered into a Sixth Amendment to the Credit Facility which extended its term by two years through May 10, 2020 and set total borrowing capacity at $65 million. Initially, the Company (a) may borrow up to $55 million under a revolving credit facility and (b) has borrowed $10 million under a term loan. The revolving credit facility limit will increase by each term loan principal payment, therefore, total borrowing capacity will remain at $65 million throughout the term of the Credit Facility.
The Sixth Amendment to the Credit Facility contains financial covenants to maintain a fixed charge coverage ratio and a leverage ratio, as well as establishes an annual limit on capital expenditures. The fixed charge coverage ratio is the ratio of (a) adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA”) less cash taxes paid during the period to (b) all debt payments during such period. The fixed charge coverage ratio requirement begins for the quarter ending March 31, 2017 at 1.00 to 1.00 and increases to 1.10 to 1.00 for the year ending December 31, 2017 and thereafter. The leverage ratio (funded debt to adjusted EBITDA) requirement begins for the six months ending June 30, 2017 at not greater than 5.5 to 1.0 and reduces to not greater than 4.0 to 1.0 for the year ending March 31, 2018 and thereafter. The annual limit on capital expenditures is $20 million. Both the fixed charge coverage ratio and the annual limit on capital expenditures are affected if the undrawn availability of the revolving credit facility falls below $15 million.
The Credit Facility includes a provision, effective beginning in 2017, that 25% of EBITDA minus cash paid for taxes, dividends, debt payments, and unfunded capital expenditures, not to exceed $3.0 million for any year, be paid on the outstanding balance of the term loan within 60 days of the fiscal year end.
Each of the Company’s domestic and foreign subsidiaries is fully obligated for Credit Facility indebtedness as a Borrower or as a guarantor.
(a) Revolving Credit Facility
Under the revolving credit facility, the Company may initially borrow up to $55 million through May 10, 2020. This includes a sublimit of $10 million that may be used for letters of credit. The revolving credit facility limit will increase by each term principal payment. The revolving credit facility is secured by substantially all of the Company’s domestic and Canadian accounts receivable and inventory.
At September 30, 2016, eligible accounts receivable and inventory securing the revolving credit facility provided total borrowing capacity of $54.9 million under the revolving credit facility. Available borrowing capacity, net of outstanding borrowings, was $22.3 million at September 30, 2016.

FLOTEK INDUSTRIES, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The interest rate on advances under the revolving credit facility varies based on the fixed charge coverage ratio. Rates range (a) between PNC Bank’s base lending rate plus 1.5% to 2.0% or (b) between the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus 2.5% to 3.0%. PNC Bank’s base lending rate was 3.50% at September 30, 2016. The Company is required to pay a monthly facility fee of 0.25% per annum, on any unused amount under the commitment based on daily averages. At September 30, 2016, $32.6 million was outstanding under the revolving credit facility, with $2.6 million borrowed as base rate loans at an interest rate of 5.50% and $30.0 million borrowed as LIBOR loans at an interest rate of 3.78%.
Borrowing under the revolving credit agreement is classified as current debt as a result of the required lockbox arrangement and the subjective acceleration clause.
(b) Term Loan
The amount borrowed under the term loan was reset to $10 million effective as of September 30, 2016. Monthly principal payments of $0.2 million are required. The unpaid balance of the term loan is due May 10, 2020. Prepayments are permitted, and may be required in certain circumstances. Amounts repaid under the term loan will be added to the borrowing availability under the revolving credit facility. The term loan is secured by substantially all of the Company’s domestic land, buildings, equipment, and other intangible assets.
The interest rate on the term loan varies based on the fixed charge coverage ratio. Rates range (a) between PNC Bank’s base lending rate plus 2.25% to 2.75% or (b) between LIBOR plus 3.25% to 3.75%. At September 30, 2016, $10.0 million was outstanding under the term loan, with $1.0 million borrowed as base rate loans at an interest rate of 6.25% and $9.0 million borrowed as LIBOR loans at an interest rate of 4.28%.
Note 12 — (Loss) Earnings Per Share
Basic (loss) earnings per common share is calculated by dividing net (loss) income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted (loss) earnings per common share is calculated by dividing net (loss) income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding combined with dilutive common share equivalents outstanding, if the effect is dilutive.
Potentially dilutive securities were excluded from the calculation of diluted loss per share for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, since including them would have an anti-dilutive effect on loss per share due to the net loss incurred during the period. Securities convertible into shares of common stock that were not considered in the diluted loss per share calculations were 0.7 million stock options and 0.8 million restricted stock units for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 0.8 million stock options and 0.4 million restricted stock units for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Note 13 — Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is defined as the amount that would be received for selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The Company categorizes financial assets and liabilities into the three levels of the fair value hierarchy. The hierarchy prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value and bases categorization within the hierarchy on the lowest level of input that is available and significant to the fair value measurement.
Level 1 — Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
Level 2 — Observable inputs other than Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and
Level 3 — Significant unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity or that are based on the reporting entity’s assumptions about the inputs.
Fair Value of Other Financial Instruments
The carrying amounts of certain financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses, approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these accounts. The Company had no cash equivalents at September 30, 2016, or December 31, 2015.
The carrying value and estimated fair value of the Company’s long-term debt are as follows (in thousands):

The carrying value of the term loan and borrowings under the revolving credit facility approximate their fair value because the interest rates are variable.
Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis
The Company’s non-financial assets, including property and equipment, goodwill, and other intangible assets are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis and are subject to fair value adjustment in certain circumstances. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company recorded an impairment of $14.6 million for property and equipment and $9.2 million for other intangible assets (see Note 3). During the three months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recorded an impairment of $2.3 million for property and equipment (see Note 3). Loss on impairment is reported in operating expenses. No impairments of property and equipment or other intangible assets were recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2016, and no impairments of other intangible assets were recognized during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. No impairments of goodwill were recognized during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015.
Note 14 — Income Taxes
During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company restructured its legal entities such that there will be only one U.S. tax filing group filing a single U.S. consolidated federal income tax return beginning in 2016. Prior to 2016, the Company’s corporate organizational structure required the filing of two separate consolidated U.S. Federal income tax returns. Taxable income of one group could not be offset by tax attributes, including net operating losses, of the other group.

Note 17 — Commitments and Contingencies
Class Action Litigation
In November 2015, four putative securities class action lawsuits were filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas against the Company and certain of its officers. The lawsuits have been consolidated into a single case, and an amended complaint has been filed. The amended complaint asserts that the Company made false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. The complaint seeks an award of damages in an unspecified amount on behalf of a putative class consisting of persons who purchased the Company’s common stock between October 23, 2014 and November 9, 2015, inclusive.

FLOTEK INDUSTRIES, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

In January 2016, three derivative lawsuits were filed, two in the District Court of Harris County, Texas (which have since been consolidated into one case) and one in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, on behalf of the Company against certain of its officers and its current directors. The lawsuits allege violations of law, breaches of fiduciary duty, and unjust enrichment against the defendants.
The Company believes the class action lawsuit and the derivative lawsuits are without merit, and it intends to vigorously defend against all claims asserted. Discovery has not yet commenced. At this time, the Company is unable to reasonably estimate the outcome of this litigation.
In addition, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has opened an inquiry related to similar issues to those raised in the above-described litigation.
Other Litigation
The Company is subject to routine litigation and other claims that arise in the normal course of business. Management is not aware of any pending or threatened lawsuits or proceedings that are expected to have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or liquidity.
Concentrations and Credit Risk
The majority of the Company’s revenue is derived from the oil and gas industry. Customers include major oilfield services companies, major integrated oil and natural gas companies, independent oil and natural gas companies, pressure pumping service companies, and state-owned national oil companies. This concentration of customers in one industry increases credit and business risks.
The Company is subject to concentrations of credit risk within trade accounts receivable, as the Company does not generally require collateral as support for trade receivables. In addition, the majority of the Company’s cash is maintained at a major financial institution and balances often exceed insurable amounts.

Company Outlook
After a continuous decline in North American drilling rig activity beginning in mid-2014, the market began to gradually recover in the second quarter of 2016. Although a gradual recovery appears to be underway, the level of drilling and completion activity is still depressed compared to historical levels and the outlook for continued improvement in industry activity is uncertain. The Company expects North American oilfield activity to remain depressed throughout the remainder of 2016 and into the first half of 2017. Although the Company has seen demand for its oil and gas related products and services in North America impacted by these industry conditions, the Company continues to aggressively market its oil and gas based products and services including its Complex nano-Fluid® (“CnF®”) and other completion chemistries, Teledrift® product line, Stemulator® product line, and the growing line of production technologies, and the Company expects to see increased market acceptance of these product lines.
During the third quarter of 2016, the Company continued to successfully promote the efficacy of its CnF® chemistries resulting in a 14% decrease in CnF® sales volumes compared to the third quarter of 2015, despite a 43% year over year decline in North American general oilfield activity. Third quarter 2016 CnF® volumes remained flat compared to the second quarter of 2016, in line with well completion activity as measured by industry surveys. The Company expects to continue strong performance relative to market activity by continuing to demonstrate the efficacy of its CnF® chemistries through comparative analysis of wells with and without CnF® chemistries, field validation results conducted by E&P companies, and the continuation of its direct-to-operator sales program known as the Flotek Store™. Whether operators purchase directly from Flotek or continue to purchase from oilfield distribution and service companies, E&P operators are benefiting from increased price transparency and a more direct relationship with Flotek’s technical expertise and supply chain. In July 2016, the Company acquired 100% of the stock and interests in International Polymerics, Inc. (“IPI”) and related entities, a U.S. based manufacturer of high viscosity guar gum and guar slurry. The IPI business is being integrated into the Company’s Energy Chemistry Technologies segment as an important part of the Company’s expanding line of polymer based chemistries.
The Company’s success in promoting its patented and proprietary chemistries is supported through its industry leading research and innovation staff who provide customer responsive product innovation, as well as development of new products which are expected to expand the Company’s future product lines. During the third quarter of 2016, the Company completed its new Global Research & Innovation Center in Houston. This state-of-the-art facility allows for the development of next-generation innovative energy chemistries, as well as expanded collaboration between clients, leaders from academia, and Company scientists. These collaborative opportunities are an important and distinguishing capability within the industry.
As a result of the significant and continued reduction in drilling activity and the Company’s expectations for the future market for the Company’s drilling tools, during the first quarter of 2016, the Company refocused the Drilling Technologies segment by closing locations, reducing staff, and eliminating product lines. At current activity levels, the Company expects continued, intense competition for jobs and significant pressure on margins even as market conditions stabilize and begin to improve. Throughout 2015 and continuing in to 2016, some of the Company’s smaller competitors left the market, and the Company believes, based on its improved cost structure and market position, it is well positioned to benefit from improved pricing and market growth opportunities as the market recovers. The Company has seen improved profitability from this segment throughout 2016 and expects that trend to continue in future quarters.
During 2015, the Company strategically repositioned the focus of the Production Technologies segment towards oil production markets and away from the less opportunistic coal bed methane (“CBM”) markets. As part of this strategic repositioning, in January 2015, the Company acquired 100% of the assets from International Artificial Lift, LLC (“IAL”), a company that specializes in the design, manufacturing, and service of next-generation HPUs that serve to increase and maximize production for oil and natural gas wells. Additionally, the Company has developed a new line of ESPs. The Company continues to commercialize its new HPU and ESP product lines.
The outlook for the Company’s consumer and industrial chemistries will be driven by the availability and demand for citrus oils, industrial solvents, and flavor and fragrance ingredients. Although current inventory and crop expectations are sufficient to meet the Company’s needs to supply its flavor and fragrance business, as well as both internal and external industrial markets, the market supply of citrus terpenes has declined in recent years due to the reduction in citrus crops caused by the citrus greening disease. This reduced supply has resulted in higher citrus terpene prices and increased price volatility. The Company expects terpene prices to remain elevated for the foreseeable future. In addition, the Company expects its strong market position to enable it to maintain a stable supply of citrus terpenes for internal use and external sales.
In response to the current market environment, the Company has been proactive in reducing costs to reflect current market conditions while, at the same time, remaining focused on preserving appropriate functions and capacity, which allows the Company to be opportunistic as market conditions improve. The Company expects to continue to focus on supply chain optimizations and, when

24




needed, adjustments to staffing levels, facility consolidations, and other cost adjustments. The Company regularly evaluates its cost structure based on market conditions with a focus on continuous efficiency improvements.
Capital expenditures, exclusive of acquisitions, totaled $11.6 million and $11.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company expects capital spending to be between $14 million and $16 million in 2016, inclusive of $6.8 million for the completion of its Global Research & Innovation Center. The Company will remain nimble in its core capital expenditure plans, adjusting as market conditions warrant.
Changes to geopolitical, global economic, and industry trends could have an impact, either positive or negative, on the Company’s business. In the event of significant adverse changes to the demand for oil and gas production and/or the market price for oil and gas, the market conditions affecting the Company could change rapidly and materially. Should such adverse changes to market conditions occur, management believes the Company has access to adequate liquidity to withstand the impact of such changes while continuing to make strategic capital investments and acquisitions, if opportunities arise. In addition, management believes the Company is well-positioned to take advantage of significant increases in demand for its products should market conditions improve dramatically in the near term.

Consolidated Results of Operations: Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016, Compared to the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015
Consolidated revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, decreased $14.3 million, or 16.2%, and $39.1 million, or 15.2%, respectively, versus the same periods of 2015. The decrease in revenue for both periods was driven by the depressed level of oilfield activity throughout 2015 and 2016, as indicated by the 43.2% and 52.8% reduction in average North American rig count for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, versus the same periods of 2015. This resulted in significant reductions in customer demand and price concessions in the Drilling Technologies segment. The Energy Chemistry Technologies segment experienced a less significant decline in revenues due to continued demand for its patented and proprietary chemistries. Additionally, the Consumer and Industrial Chemistry Technologies segment saw a significant increase in revenues due to higher sales prices and volume increases in the Flavor and Fragrance and terpene product lines.
Consolidated gross profit for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, decreased $5.9 million, or 18.8%, and $12.8 million, or 14.7%, respectively, compared to the same periods of 2015. Gross margin decreased to 34.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2016, from 35.5% in the same period of 2015, primarily due to declining sales volumes and product pricing pressure in the Production Technologies segment, partially offset by higher margins in the Drilling Technologies segment due to

25




improved cost structures. Gross margin remained relatively unchanged for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, compared to the same period of 2015.
Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses are not directly attributable to products sold or services provided. SG&A costs increased $0.8 million, or 3.3%, and $1.6 million, or 2.3%, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, versus the same periods of 2015. These increases were primarily due to higher legal and professional fees. The Company regularly evaluates its SG&A cost structure as market conditions warrant.
Depreciation and amortization expense decreased $0.1 million, or 2.8%, and $0.4 million, or 4.4%, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, versus the same periods of 2015, primarily due to the long-lived asset impairment in the first quarter of 2016, partially offset by increased depreciation expense for the recently completed Global Research & Innovation Center.
Research and Innovation (“R&I”) expense increased $0.5 million, or 24.6%, and $1.8 million, or 33.9%, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, compared to the same periods of 2015. The increase in R&I is primarily attributable to new product development and Flotek’s commitment to remaining responsive to customer needs, increased demand, continued growth and refining of existing product lines, and the development of new chemistries which are expected to expand the Company’s intellectual property portfolio.
During the three months ended March 31, 2016, as a result of changes in the oil and gas industry and the corresponding impact on the Company’s business outlook, the Company determined that within its Drilling Technologies segment the carrying amount of certain long-lived assets exceeded their respective fair values and that some inventory was either not usable in future operations or the carrying value exceeded its market value. In addition, as a result of the introduction of newer and proprietary technology, as well as lower demand for older technologies, the Company also evaluated its Production Technologies inventory for impairment during the three months ended March 31, 2016. As a result of these evaluations, the Company recorded impairment charges of $40.4 million in the first quarter of 2016.
Interest and other expense increased $0.3 million, or 64.2%, and $0.6 million, or 38.5%, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, versus the same periods of 2015, primarily due to the interest rate increase on the term loan and revolving credit facility effective March 31, 2016.
The Company recorded income tax benefits of $2.2 million and $19.8 million, yielding effective tax benefit rates of 44.6% and 36.0% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, compared to an income tax provision of $0.4 million and a benefit of $6.5 million yielding effective tax rates of 16.8% and 34.9% for the comparable periods in 2015.

Energy Chemistry Technologies Results of Operations: Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016, Compared to the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015
Energy Chemistry Technologies revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, decreased $15.2 million, or 25.2%, and $30.2 million, or 18.5%, respectively, versus the same periods of 2015, compared to a 43.2% and 52.8% decline in market activity as measured by average North American rig count. Flotek’s Energy Chemistry Technologies segment outperformed these market indicators by continuing to aggressively promote the benefits of its CnF® chemistries. CnF® sales volumes decreased 14.2% (revenues decreased 15.9%), compared to the three months ended September 30, 2015. The decreased sales of its CnF® chemistries during the third quarter of 2016 was due to decreased activity resulting from less well completion activity by customers. Energy Chemistry Technologies’ success is enabled by its continued ability to demonstrate the efficacy of its CnF® chemistries through comparative analysis of wells with and without CnF® chemistries and field validation results conducted by E&P companies,

26




as well as its direct-to-operator sales program known as the Flotek Store™. Non-CnF revenues declined approximately 42.7%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2015, due to reduced customer demand as a result of oilfield market conditions.
Sequentially, revenues increased $1.6 million, or 3.8%, versus the second quarter of 2016, compared to a 27.7% increase in market activity as measured by average North American rig count. CnF® sales volumes remained flat (revenues increased 3.5%) on a sequential basis in line with industry well completion activity. Lower well completion activity by a major customer was partially offset by increased sales to other customers. Non-CnF revenues increased 3.3% due to increased activity with service companies.
Energy Chemistry Technologies gross profit decreased $6.1 million, or 25.1%, and $6.2 million, or 10.2%, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, versus the same periods of 2015. Gross margin remained flat for the three months ended September 30, 2016, as compared to the same period of 2015, and increased to 41.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, from 37.2% in the same period of 2015. The gross margin increase over the period was primarily due to product mix resulting from relatively higher sales of CnF® chemistries.
Income from operations for the Energy Chemistry Technologies segment decreased $8.1 million, or 56.6%, and $11.2 million, or 34.0%, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, versus the same periods of 2015. These decreases are primarily attributable to the decrease in gross profit, increased costs associated with sales and marketing efforts in pursuit of growth opportunities, and increased costs associated with the Company’s continued commitment to its research and innovation efforts within Energy Chemistry Technologies.
