ProPetro Reports Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2021
MIDLAND, TX, February 22, 2022, (Business Wire) – ProPetro Holding Corp. ("ProPetro" or "the Company") (NYSE: PUMP) today announced financial and operational results for the fourth quarter of 2021.
Fourth Quarter 2021 and Full Year Highlights
Total revenue for the quarter decreased 2% to $246 million compared to $250 million for the third quarter of 2021.
Net loss for the quarter was $20 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the quarter decreased 12% to $37 million compared to $42 million for the third quarter of 2021.
Effective utilization for the fourth quarter was 12.5 fleets compared to 13.8 fleets for the third quarter of 2021.
Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter was $45 million compared to $48 million for the third quarter of 2021.
Positive Free Cash Flow(2) for the quarter was approximately $26 million compared to positive Free Cash Flow of approximately $13 million for the third 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 December 31, 2021, net cash provided by operating activities of approximately $45 million less net cash used in investing activities of approximately $19 million resulted in free cash flow of approximately $26 million. During the quarter ended September 30, 2021, net cash provided by operating activities of $48 million less net cash used in investing activities of $35 million resulted in free cash flow of approximately $13 million.

Sam Sledge, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The fourth quarter was a transitory period for our team as we began to reposition our business to capitalize on what we expect to be a favorable supply-demand backdrop for oil and gas and an effectively sold-out market for efficient pressure pumping services in 2022. We remain proud of the continued commitment to safety and efficient field performance that our team delivered during the quarter and for the full year. We plan to continue to manage our supply chain aggressively, invest in our human capital and optimize our business with a continuing commitment to reducing risk and maintaining operational excellence for our customers in the Permian Basin."
"Our team continues to critically focus on the capture of economic margin, not market share and we will continue this effort through a disciplined fleet deployment strategy. These efforts will bear fruit in 2022 as new pricing for our services is activated along with the repositioning of assets to more economically attractive projects."

"We expect the delivery and deployment of our converted Tier IV DGB dual-fuel pumps to play a role in that strategy. Diesel displacement and reduced greenhouse gas emissions is a
1

continuing theme within our industry and these units are contributing significantly to this pursuit. All 86 of our Tier IV DGB units have been reserved by customers and are expected to be deployed as they are delivered, some of which are already providing services in the field today."

"Despite the transitory nature of the quarter, we were able to take advantage of the global power supply shortage and generate positive free cash flow from the sale of our underutilized turbine generators for $36 million in cash," David Schorlemer, Chief Financial Officer, commented. "Transferring the proceeds of this divestiture to assets that have a better opportunity to produce financial returns, along with net pricing improvements effective in January across our entire business should improve our capital efficiency in 2022. This transaction also enhanced our debt-free balance sheet resulting in $169 million of total liquidity at year end, and positions our team well for the opportunity-rich environment we anticipate in the pressure pumping market in 2022."


Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Summary
Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $246 million compared to revenue of $250 million for the third quarter of 2021. The 2% decrease was attributable to our decreased effectively utilized fleet resulting from the impact of holidays and the repositioning of certain fleets.
Cost of services, excluding depreciation and amortization of approximately $33 million, for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $187 million, which was relatively flat compared to $189 million during the third quarter of 2021. Wage increases and general cost inflation slightly impacted our cost of services during the fourth quarter of 2021.
General and administrative expense of $24 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased from $21 million in the third quarter of 2021. General and administrative expense, exclusive of a net expense of $2 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 $22 million, or 9% of revenue, for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to 8% of revenue for the third quarter of 2021.
Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2021 totaled $20 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2021. The increase in net loss was a result of the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA and increased expense in connection with loss on disposal of assets during the fourth quarter of 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $37 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 from $42 million during the third quarter of 2021. The sequential decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily attributable to normal seasonality, job mix and repositioning of certain fleets leading to lower fleet utilization, and the full quarter impact of general cost inflation including wage adjustments.

Liquidity and Capital Spending
As of December 31, 2021, total cash was $112 million and the Company remained debt free. Total liquidity at the end of the fourth quarter of 2021 was $169 million including cash and $57 million of available capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

     EXHIBIT 99.1
Capital expenditures incurred during the fourth quarter of 2021 were $49 million, the majority of which related to our previously announced Tier IV DGB conversions and maintenance capital expenditures. Net cash used in investing activities in the fourth quarter was $19 million which included proceeds of approximately $37 million largely from the sale of our two turbine generators.

Outlook

Mr. Sledge concluded, "As we emerge from the last year of recovery and transition to an environment of increasing investment in oil and gas production, particularly in the Permian Basin, we believe we are uniquely positioned to meet this opportunity. Rising oil prices coupled with years of North American pressure pumping attrition is anticipated to create tailwinds for ProPetro in 2022. Our team remains focused on operational excellence, capital discipline, and transitioning our fleet to ESG-friendly products all of which allows us to safely and efficiently meet the needs of our customers. I look forward to working with our team and our customers in 2022 as we move to a more favorable phase of the investment cycle for North American oil and gas."

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.
