ProPetro Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2022
MIDLAND, TX, May 3, 2022, (Business Wire) – ProPetro Holding Corp. ("ProPetro" or "the Company") (NYSE: PUMP) today announced financial and operational results for the first quarter of 2022.
First Quarter 2022 and Recent Highlights
Total revenue for the quarter increased 15% to $283 million compared to $246 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.
Net income for the quarter was $12 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $20 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the quarter increased 81% to $67 million or 24% of revenues compared to $37 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.
Effective utilization for the first quarter improved 9.6% to 13.7 fleets compared to 12.5 fleets for the fourth quarter of 2021 without expanding marketed fleet count.
Net cash provided by operating activities for the quarter of $25 million as compared to $45 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.
Negative Free Cash Flow(2) for the quarter was approximately $39 million as compared to positive Free Cash Flow of approximately $26 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.
Achieved a Company record of over 600 monthly pumping hours on a single Simul-Frac fleet in March.
(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 is a Non-GAAP financial measure and is described and reconciled to cash from operating activities in the table under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures".


Sam Sledge, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Despite operational headwinds mainly attributable to sand-related issues in the first quarter, our team achieved healthy margin expansion and a high utilization rate without expanding our marketed fleet count from the previous quarter. We attribute this success to the hard work and effort our team put into executing on our returns-focused strategy to take advantage of improved market conditions and increased demand for our services, all bolstered by first-in-class service at the wellsite. We expect this trend to continue as we take deliveries and deploy more of our Tier IV Dynamic Gas Blending ("DGB" or "dual-fuel") conversions in the coming weeks and months. That said, we anticipate the balance of the year to be challenging as managing input costs, supply chain pressures, human capital, and operational risks will only become more difficult as the pressure pumping market tightens further."

David Schorlemer, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "We are encouraged with the significant improvement in our margins during the first quarter. However, we remain committed to our strict fleet deployment strategy and focus on our pursuit of margin-over-market share. Remaining focused on capital-efficient growth through pricing improvements and efficient operations, while continuing to make strategic investments to transition our pressure pumping assets to lower-emissions and natural gas-powered equipment, is the foundation of the Company's returns-focused strategy."
First Quarter 2022 Financial Summary
Revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was $283 million, compared to revenue of $246 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. The 15% increase was attributable to our increased effectively utilized fleet count of 13.7 fleets, from 12.5 fleets in the fourth quarter of 2021 and improved pricing across our fleets in the first quarter of 2022.
Cost of services, excluding depreciation and amortization of approximately $32 million, for the first quarter of 2022 increased to $197 million from $187 million during the fourth quarter of 2021. The 5% increase was attributable to the increased operational activity levels in the first quarter of 2022.
General and administrative expense of $32 million for the first quarter of 2022 increased from $24 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. General and administrative expense, exclusive of a net expense of $13 million relating to a non-recurring net legal expense of approximately $2 million and non-cash items consisting of stock-based compensation of approximately $11 million, was $19 million, or 7% of revenue, for the first quarter of 2022 compared to 9% of revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021. The decrease in our general and administrative expense as a percentage of revenue was driven by higher revenue in the first quarter and benefits from our cost optimization initiatives.
Net income for the first quarter of 2022 totaled $12 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $20 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2021. Net income benefitted from a non-recurring state tax refund of approximately $11 million.
Adjusted EBITDA increased to $67 million for the first quarter of 2022 from $37 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily attributable to increased activity, fleet repositioning and improved pricing across our fleet.
Liquidity and Capital Spending
As of March 31, 2022, total cash was $71 million and the Company remained debt free. Total liquidity at the end of the first quarter of 2022 was $127 million including cash and $56 million of available capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

EXHIBIT 99.1

Capital expenditures incurred during the first quarter of 2022 were $72 million, the majority of which related to maintenance expenditures and our previously announced Tier IV DGB conversions. Net cash used in investing activities from our statement of cash flow during the first quarter of 2022 was $64 million.
Outlook
Mr. Sledge concluded, "Our team is encouraged by the step change in performance during the first quarter. However, the operational and logistical headwinds we experienced validate our belief that operating margins in pressure pumping do not reflect levels needed to justify the additional risk ProPetro assumes in marketing and deploying any additional horsepower. This is especially true in a market that is currently near sold-out levels and where operating margins should continue to expand. As a result, we continue to concentrate efforts on optimizing the full-cycle cash-on-cash return profiles of our currently operating fleets and do not expect to market additional capacity in the second quarter.
As previously mentioned, we will continue to strategically convert many of our conventional diesel assets into more marketable natural gas-powered equipment that will be placed with E&P’s that have core acreage positions and sizeable drilling inventories. Above all else, we are most focused on operating our business and collaborating with customers in a manner that allows us to significantly expand our earnings power and create value for all stakeholders in the ProPetro value chain. This will be accomplished through intense operational and financial discipline that we believe mimics the actions exhibited by many of our upstream partners and customers over the past few years.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are not financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provide 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, and net cash from operating activities is the GAAP measure most directly comparable to Free Cash Flow. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. 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 or Free Cash Flow in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.
