Accounting Policies [Abstract]  


Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all information or notes required by GAAP for annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Annual Report”), filed with the SEC on March 30, 2022.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes present the consolidated financial position, results of operations, cash flows, and stockholders’ deficit of the Company as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. The interim data includes all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations expected for the entire fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.

Our operations are organized into a single business segment, which consists of pressure pumping services, and we have one reportable geographical business segment, the United States.

Reverse Stock Split

At the annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders held on May 14, 2021, the Company’s stockholders approved a proposal to amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to effect a reverse stock split at a ratio to be determined by the Company’s Board of Directors within a specified range. On September 30, 2021, the Company effected a 1-for-3.5 reverse split of its Class A common stock. All owners of record as of September 30, 2021 received one issued and outstanding share of the Company’s Class A common stock in exchange for three and one half outstanding shares of the Company’s Class A common stock. No fractional shares of Class A common stock were issued as a result of the reverse stock split. Any fractional shares in connection with the reverse stock split were rounded up to the nearest whole share and no stockholders received cash in lieu of fractional shares. The reverse stock split had no impact on the number of shares of Class A common stock that the Company is authorized to issue pursuant to its certificate of incorporation or on the par value per share of the Class A common stock. Proportional adjustments were made to the number of shares of Class A common stock issuable upon exercise or conversion of the Company's equity awards, convertible preferred stock and warrants, as well as the applicable exercise price. All share and per share information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q has been retroactively adjusted to reflect the impact of the reverse stock split.

Principles of Consolidation

The condensed consolidated financial statements comprise the financial statements of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date of acquisition, being the date on which the Company obtains control, and continue to be consolidated until the date when such control ceases. The financial statements of the subsidiaries are prepared for the same reporting period as the Company. All significant intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated upon consolidation.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. We regularly evaluate estimates and judgments based on historical experience and other relevant facts and circumstances. Significant estimates included in these financial statements primarily relate to allowance for doubtful accounts, allowance for inventory obsolescence, estimated useful lives and valuation of long-lived assets, impairment assessments of goodwill and other long-lived assets, valuation of right-of-use assets and lease liabilities, estimates of fair value of warrant liabilities, term loan, and convertible senior notes, and the valuation of share-based compensation and certain equity instruments. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Restricted Cash

Cash and cash equivalents that are restricted as to withdrawal or use under the terms of certain contractual agreements, or are reserved for a specific purpose, and not readily available for immediate or general use are recorded in restricted cash on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of March 31, 2022, restricted cash primarily consisted of $0.7 million transferred into a trust account to support our workers’ compensation obligations. As of December 31, 2021, restricted cash consisted of $0.7 million transferred into a trust account to support our workers’ compensation obligations and $2.0 million for the prepayment of the Senior Secured Term Loan.

The following table provides a reconciliation of cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash reported on the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows:

Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable are recorded at their outstanding balances adjusted for an allowance for doubtful accounts. Revenue earned and recognized in advance of invoice issuance creates assets referred to as “unbilled receivables”. Unbilled receivables are presented on a combined basis with accounts receivable. Allowance for doubtful accounts is determined by analyzing the payment history and credit worthiness of each customer. Receivable balances are charged off when they are considered uncollectible by management. Recoveries of receivables previously charged off are recorded as income when received.

During the first quarter of 2021, the Company wrote-off accounts receivables of $12.0 million, which was previously reserved in full as of December 31, 2020. As of March 31, 2022, the Company did not record an allowance for doubtful accounts.


Inventory consists of proppant, chemicals, and other consumable materials and supplies used in our pressure pumping operations. Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined principally on a first-in-first-out cost basis. All inventories are purchased for use by the Company in the delivery of its services with no inventory being sold separately to outside parties. Inventory quantities on hand are reviewed regularly and write-downs for obsolete inventory are recorded based on our forecast of the inventory item demand in the near future. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had established inventory reserves of $1.5 million and $1.3 million, respectively, for obsolete and slow-moving inventory.

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are carried at cost, with depreciation provided on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives. Expenditures for renewals and betterments that extend the lives of the assets are capitalized. Amounts spent for maintenance and repairs, which do not improve or extend the life of the related asset, are charged to expense as incurred.

The Company separately identifies and accounts for certain critical components of its pressure pumping units including the engine, transmission, and pump, which requires us to separately estimate the useful lives of these components. For our other service equipment, we do not separately identify and track depreciation of specific original components. When we replace components of these assets, we typically estimate the net book values of the components that are retired, which are based primarily upon their replacement costs, their ages and their original estimated useful lives.


At inception, the Company determines whether an arrangement is a lease and the appropriate lease classification as operating or finance. When a lease is identified, a right-of-use asset and the corresponding lease liability are recorded on the lease commencement date based on the present value of the remaining lease payments over the lease term on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. In the event a lease does not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate based on information available at the commencement date in determining the present value of the remaining lease payments. Leases may include options to extend or terminate the lease. The Company generally does not include renewal or termination options in its assessment of the leases unless extension or termination for certain assets is deemed to be reasonably certain. The Company has elected the practical expedient to not recognize lease assets and liabilities for leases with a term of 12 months or less. Operating lease expenses are recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company also has some lease agreements with lease and non-lease components, which are accounted for as a single lease component.

Right-of-use assets are assessed periodically for impairment if events or circumstances occur that indicate the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable. The Company monitors events and modifications of existing lease agreements that would require reassessment of the lease. When a reassessment results in the remeasurement of a lease liability, a corresponding adjustment is made to the carrying amount of the corresponding right-of-use asset.


The Company evaluates all its financial instruments, including issued stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives, pursuant to Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity and ASC 815-15, Derivatives and Hedging—Embedded Derivatives. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or equity is evaluated pursuant to ASC 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity.

The Company’s issued and outstanding Public Warrants, Private Placement Warrants and Series A Warrants are recognized as liabilities. Accordingly, we recognize these warrant instruments as liabilities at fair value upon issuance and adjust the instruments to fair value at the end of each reporting period. Any change in fair value is recognized in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. The Public Warrants are valued using their quoted market price since they are publicly traded and thus had an observable market price. The Private Placement Warrants are valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model. The Series A Warrants are valued using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

The Company’s issued and outstanding Term C Loan Warrants, RDO Investor Warrants and Placement Agent Warrants are recognized as equity.

See “Note 9 – Warrants” for additional disclosure of the Company’s outstanding warrants.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Fair value is defined under ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a three-level hierarchy, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The three levels are defined as follows:

Level 1–inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2–inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.
Level 3–inputs are unobservable for the asset or liability.

The following is a summary of the carrying amounts and estimated fair values of our financial instruments:

Senior Secured Term Loan. The fair value of the Senior Secured Term Loan is $96.5 million and $106.6 million as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, based on the market price quoted from external sources. If the Senior Secured Term Loan was measured at fair value in the financial statements, it would be classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

Term C Loan. The fair value the Term C Loan is $22.6 million as of March 31, 2022 based on the market price quoted from external sources. If the Term C Loan was measured at fair value in the financial statements, it would be classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

Equipment financing. The carrying value of the equipment financing notes approximates fair value as its terms are consistent with and comparable to current market rates as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Warrants. Certain of the Company’s outstanding warrants are accounted for as liabilities and measured at fair value. See “Note 9 – Warrants” for fair value measurements associated with the Company’s warrants.

Convertible Senior Notes. The fair value of the Convertible Senior Notes is $75.1 million and $73.5 million as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, based on an option pricing framework using a lattice model. If the Convertible Senior Notes were measured at fair value in the financial statements, they would be classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue based on the customer’s ability to benefit from the services rendered in an amount that reflects the consideration expected to be received in exchange for those services.

The Company’s performance obligations are satisfied over time, typically measured by the number of stages completed or the number of pumping days a fleet is available to pump for a customer in a month. All revenue is recognized when a contract with a customer exists, collectability of amounts subject to invoice is probable, the performance obligations under the contract have been satisfied over time, and the amount to which the Company has the right to invoice has been determined. A portion of the Company’s contracts contain variable consideration; however, this variable consideration is typically unknown at the time of contract inception, and is not known until the job is complete, at which time the variability is resolved.

The Company has elected to use the “as invoiced” practical expedient to recognize revenue based upon the amount it has a right to invoice upon the completion of each performance obligation per the terms of the contract.

Patent License Sales. The sales of the right to use the Company’s patented Clean Fleet® technology is a single performance obligation. The Company recognizes the income associated with the patent license sales at the point in time when the Company satisfies its performance obligation by granting the purchaser the right to use the patented Clean Fleet® technology and transfer of control has occurred. The patent license sales are recognized as other income in our condensed consolidated statement of operations.

Major Customer and Concentration of Credit Risk

The concentration of our customers in the oil and natural gas industry may impact our overall exposure to credit risk, either positively or negatively, in that customers may be similarly affected by changes in economic and industry conditions. We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers and do not generally require collateral in support of our trade receivables.

Income Taxes

The provision or benefit from income taxes for interim periods is determined using an estimate of our annual effective tax rate, adjusted for discrete items, if any, that are taken into account in the relevant period. Each quarter, the Company updates the estimate of the annual effective tax rate, and if the estimated tax rate changes, the Company records a cumulative adjustment.

The Company’s effective tax rate on continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, was 0.00%. The difference between the effective tax rate and the U.S. federal statutory rate is primarily due to a valuation allowance on the Company's federal and state net deferred tax assets and excess tax benefits related to net operating losses. Due to tax losses and offsetting valuation allowance, the Company did not record a provision for U.S. income taxes in any period.

The Company is subject to taxation in the U.S. The tax years subsequent to 2018 remain open and subject to examination by federal and state taxing authorities in which the Company is subject to tax. The Company is not under examination in any other jurisdictions.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company has provided a valuation allowance against all federal and state deferred tax assets. Management continues to evaluate the realizability of deferred tax assets and the related valuation allowance. If management's assessment of the deferred tax assets or the corresponding valuation allowance were to change, the Company would record the related adjustment to income during the period in which management makes the determination. After consideration of all the information available, management determined that a valuation allowance was appropriate, as it is more likely than not that the Company will not utilize its net deferred tax assets.
