HOUSTON, Nov. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Select Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: WTTR) ("Select" or the "Company"), a leading provider of sustainable water and chemical solutions to the U.S. unconventional oil and gas industry, today announced results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $204.6 million as compared to $161.1 million in the second quarter of 2021 and $101.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $14.2 million as compared to a net loss of $19.6 million in the second quarter of 2021 and a net loss of $36.3 million in the third quarter of 2020.

John Schmitz, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO, stated, "During the third quarter, we continued to execute on our strategy of improving and bolstering our base business, advancing our technology, ESG and diversification efforts, and executing on strategic M&A. We generated meaningful revenue growth in the business during the third quarter, with 27% consolidated sequential revenue growth. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA doubled quarter over quarter to $15.1 million, supported by both our base business and the Complete acquisition. Setting aside the growth contributions of our recent M&A activity, our base business grew revenue sequentially by 9%, generating incremental margins of more than 30% during the third quarter. This continued growth was driven by a combination of modest activity increases and, more importantly, continued pricing improvements. Additionally, we saw good momentum throughout the quarter, with September representing our strongest month of the year to date. With the current commodity price backdrop, we are confident in our ability to continue to grow the base business, meaningfully improve our pricing and capture market share heading into 2022.

"Looking beyond the macro-driven tailwinds towards additional ways we can support our business, we continue to make investments to support our technology, ESG initiatives and diversification efforts. Continued investment in our automation, data analytics, emissions reduction and FluidMatch™ solutions will be critical to providing our customers with lower costs and improved performance. To that end, I'm pleased to announce the addition of Suzi Colbert to our leadership team as Select's Chief Technology Officer. Suzi brings over 20 years of experience in a number of technology and financial operations leadership positions at Marathon, BP, Noble Corporation and Anadarko. Suzi will oversee the integration and development of our R&D, operational technology and IT efforts across the organization to ensure that we continue to advance and grow our position as a technology leader in the sector.

"I am also excited about the execution on our infrastructure and recycling strategies during the third quarter. We completed the expansion of our largest recycling facility, located in Martin County, Texas, during the third quarter, and completed construction of our three newest Permian Basin recycling facilities in late September. Additionally, Select was recently awarded a three year take-or-pay contract to build, own and operate a produced water recycling facility for a major integrated oil and gas company in the Rockies region. These recycling opportunities will be critical to achieving our ESG goals and those of our customers by facilitating both decreased fresh water usage and reduced waste disposal.

"On the M&A front, we have continued to be quite active in the marketplace with the recent acquisitions of Complete, Agua Libre and UltRecovery. Complete has already made notable contributions to our business and financial results, while we believe Agua Libre, which closed on October 1st, should add an incremental $70–80 million of current run-rate annualized revenue and $6-8 million of current run-rate annualized Adjusted EBITDA, with meaningful room for operational improvements, development and growth.

"Operationally, with Agua Libre we've acquired a solid production services presence in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and North Dakota, as well as more than 550,000 barrels per day of permitted disposal capacity. When combined with our existing assets, including Complete, our company-wide permitted daily disposal capacity has increased to approximately two million barrels per day. Additionally, more than half of Agua Libre's current produced water volumes are delivered via pipelines, supported by a number of long-term contracts. Ultimately, we believe these assets are well-positioned for subsequent sustainable development opportunities such as recycling and reuse solutions. Importantly, with nearly 100% of Agua Libre's revenue coming from production-related services and infrastructure, we have continued to add further revenue stability to our base business. Combined, the Complete and Agua Libre transactions have increased our production-related revenue from approximately 10% of our total revenue during the first half of 2021 to approximately 25% on a pro forma basis."

"Ultimately, I am excited about our recent M&A execution, our technology strategy, our recycling projects and our other sustainability-focused investments. I firmly believe the market needs continued consolidation and we are well positioned to execute on additional opportunities ahead. With growing activity, strong commodity prices and improved operational and financial performance, the future remains bright," concluded Schmitz.

Consolidated Financial Information

For the third quarter of 2021, revenue was $204.6 million, net loss was $14.2 million and gross profit was $9.0 million, as compared to a gross loss of $1.6 million in the second quarter of 2021 and a gross loss of $16.9 million in the third quarter of 2020. Total gross margin was 4.4% in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to (1.0)% in the second quarter of 2021 and (16.7)% in the third quarter of 2020. Gross margin before depreciation and amortization ("D&A") for the third quarter of 2021 was 15.6% as compared to 12.0% for the second quarter of 2021 and 6.9% for the third quarter of 2020.

SG&A during the third quarter of 2021 was $22.0 million as compared to $15.9 million during the second quarter of 2021 and $16.0 million during the third quarter of 2020. SG&A during the third quarter of 2021 was impacted by non-recurring transaction costs, of which approximately $2.4 million related to SG&A,  and a $2.4 million increase related to incremental overhead costs added from the Complete acquisition.

Adjusted EBITDA was $15.1 million in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to $7.6 million in the second quarter of 2021 and ($4.7) million in the third quarter of 2020.  Select's consolidated Adjusted EBITDA during the third quarter of 2021 includes $5.5 million of non-recurring or non-cash adjustments, including $2.7 million of non-recurring transaction costs, $0.2 million of non-cash losses on asset sales, $0.2 million in lease abandonment costs, and $0.1 million in other adjustments. Non-cash compensation expense accounted for an additional $2.3 million adjustment.

Business Segment Information

The Water Services segment generated revenues of $112.5 million in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to $76.7 million in the second quarter of 2021 and $54.5 million in the third quarter of 2020.  Gross margin before D&A for Water Services was 15.8% in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to 7.7% in the second quarter of 2021 and 3.0% in the third quarter of 2020. Revenues improved 46.7% sequentially, driven primarily by incremental contributions from the Complete acquisition, though the legacy Select base business had strong revenue growth of approximately 11% as well. Additionally, the segment experienced very strong margin expansion, with margins more than doubling, driven by 54% incremental margins in the base business. Looking at the fourth quarter, the Company expects to see low double-digit to mid-teen percentage revenue growth with modest improvements to gross margins before D&A , supported by continued pricing improvements and incremental contributions from the production services operations recently acquired from Basic.

The Water Infrastructure segment generated revenues of $36.8 million in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to $33.3 million in the second quarter of 2021 and $16.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. Gross margin before D&A for Water Infrastructure was 22.5% in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to 21.3% in the second quarter of 2021 and 20.7% in the third quarter of 2020.  Revenues improved 10.4% sequentially while capturing 35% incremental margins, driven primarily by contributions from the Complete acquisition and the Permian pipelines. The previously anticipated recovery in Bakken pipeline activity has largely pushed into early 2022 with modifications to customer schedules. For the fourth quarter, the Company anticipates the combination of contributions from Agua Libre and the recently completed recycling projects will result in high single-digit to low double-digit percentage revenue growth, with gross margins before D&A in the low- to mid-20 percent range.  

The Oilfield Chemicals segment generated revenues of $55.4 million in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to $51.1 million in the second quarter of 2021 and $30.6 million in the third quarter of 2020.  Gross margin before D&A for Oilfield Chemicals was 10.5% in the third quarter of 2021 as compared to 12.5% in the second quarter of 2021 and 6.6% in the third quarter of 2020. Revenues improved 8.3% sequentially, though margins were impacted by continued raw materials pricing challenges as well as costs associated with the reactivation of the Tyler facility. The Company anticipates low- to mid-teen percentage sequential revenue growth in this segment during the fourth quarter. With supply chain disruptions beginning to normalize and the Tyler facility back up and running, gross margins before D&A are expected to improve back towards the levels seen during the second quarter of 2021.

Cash Flow and Capital Expenditures

Cash flow from operations for the third quarter of 2021 was ($2.5) million as compared to ($7.6) million in the second quarter of 2021 and $17.1 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Cash flow from operations less capital expenditures, net of asset sales, was ($17.6) million during the third quarter of 2021. Additionally, cash flow used in investing activities included approximately $14.2 million for the Company's acquisition of Complete, $2.5 million for the Company's acquisition of UltRecovery, and $2.0 million for the escrow deposit required by the stalking horse asset purchase agreement relating to the acquisition of Agua Libre and other water-related assets from Basic.

Complete Energy Services Acquisition

On July 9, 2021, Select closed on the acquisition of Complete, an operating subsidiary of Superior. Select acquired substantially all of the water-related assets, liabilities and ongoing operations of the business, including working capital. Superior retained certain non-core and non-water-related assets that were part of Complete as part of the transaction. In consideration, Select issued 3.6 million shares of Class A common stock and paid $14.2 million in cash, subject to standard post-closing adjustments, to Superior to close the transaction.

Complete is a leading provider of production- and completion-related water solutions, including produced water gathering and disposal solutions, fluids handling, water transfer, flowback and well testing, water heating and containment solutions across the U.S., including the Permian, Mid-Continent, DJ and Powder River Basins, and the Marcellus and Utica Shales.

UltRecovery Acquisition

On August 2, 2021, Select acquired substantially all of the assets of UltRecovery, a provider of sustainable production enhancement applications focused on existing conventional and unconventional oil and gas wells. In consideration, Select paid $2.5 million at closing, and the selling shareholders may earn contingent consideration in the form of an earn-out. The estimated liability of the earn-out is $1.1 million and the maximum earn-out is $1.6 million, dependent on revenue generated in the first and second 12-month periods following the acquisition, beginning on October 1, 2021.

Acquisition of Agua Libre Midstream and Other Water Related Assets from Basic

Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, on October 1, 2021, Select closed on the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Agua Libre and certain water-related assets and operations of Basic and assumed liabilities in connection therewith, in each case pursuant to the terms of the stalking horse asset purchase agreement previously entered into with Basic and Agua Libre and as approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas on September 23, 2021 pursuant to Section 363 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. As consideration for the acquisition, Select issued 902,593 shares of Class A common stock and paid $14.5 million in cash to Basic to close the transaction, subject to standard post-closing adjustments, and assumed certain liabilities.

Agua Libre is a leading provider of water midstream, logistics and production services to the oil and gas industry, including operations in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and North Dakota.

Produced Water Recycling Facility in the DJ Basin for Major Integrated Oil and Gas Company

Select was recently awarded a contract to build, own and operate a produced water recycling facility for a major international integrated oil and gas company in the DJ Basin. The project is being supported by a three year take-or-pay contract. The Company commenced construction on this fixed infrastructure produced water recycling facility during the third quarter of 2021. This facility will support the recycling of up to 15,000 barrels of water per day with the ability to upgrade to 30,000 barrels per day. This facility will be connected via pipeline to an existing saltwater disposal well owned and operated by Select. The Company expects this facility to begin temporary operations in the fourth quarter of 2021 and to be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2022.

Comparison of Non-GAAP Financial Measures


EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, gross profit before depreciation and amortization (D&A) and gross margin before D&A are not financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. We define EBITDA as net income (loss), plus interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus/(minus) loss/(income) from discontinued operations, plus any impairment charges or asset write-offs pursuant to accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("GAAP"), plus non-cash losses on the sale of assets or subsidiaries, non-recurring compensation expense, non-cash compensation expense, and non-recurring or unusual expenses or charges, including severance expenses, transaction costs, or facilities-related exit and disposal-related expenditures, plus/(minus) foreign currency losses/(gains) and plus/(minus) losses/(gains) on unconsolidated entities. We define gross profit before D&A as revenue less cost of revenue, excluding cost of sales D&A expense. We define gross margin before D&A as gross profit before D&A divided by revenue. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, gross profit before D&A and gross margin before D&A are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that we believe provide useful information to external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies because it allows them to compare our operating performance on a consistent basis across periods by removing the effects of our capital structure (such as varying levels of interest expense), asset base (such as depreciation and amortization) and non-recurring items outside the control of our management team. We present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, gross profit before D&A and gross margin before D&A because we believe they provide useful information regarding the factors and trends affecting our business in addition to measures calculated under GAAP.


Net income (loss) is the GAAP measure most directly comparable to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Gross profit (loss) is the GAAP measure most directly comparable to gross profit before D&A. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Each of these non-GAAP financial measures has important limitations as an analytical tool due to exclusion of some but not all items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. You should not consider EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA or gross profit before D&A in isolation or as substitutes for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and gross profit before D&A 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. For further discussion, please see "Item 6. Selected Financial Data" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
