April 2012 Snapshot
As noted in the past, first and second quarter results from Flotek are often volatile, a result of weather and the timing and duration of spring break-up, especially in the North American Rockies.
Revenue in April 2012 should be approximately $24 million, above February levels but below the March run rate. Spring break-up impacted chemical sales and tool rentals in both the Canadian and U.S. Rockies accounting for a majority of the reduction. The Company also experienced weakness in Artificial Lift activity in the Powder River Basin. This revenue pattern is consistent with seasonal fluctuations in the past two years.
"While the reduction in April sales is worth noting, it is neither unusual nor does it give us pause," added Chisholm. "Year-over-year April sales increased over 50%. Moreover, sales in April, 2011 were 26% below March, 2011 sales. We are already seeing signs of break-up recovery and expect May and June to follow growth patterns similar to those over the last two years."Conference Call Details Flotek will host a conference call on Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 7:30 a.m. Central Daylight Time to discuss its operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012.
