Colorado Severe Flooding Update

As reported by Flotek in October, the severe rains and associated flooding in Colorado in September had a meaningful impact on the Company's chemical sales in the Denver-Julesburg Basin ("D-J Basin") during the second-half of the month. After a complete review of all business, delayed orders and anticipated commercial activity, weather impacted the Company's commercial sales by more than $3 million, a large part of which would have been comprised of CnF® sales.

In addition, while commercial activity has now stabilized to levels slightly above pre-storm levels, decreased activity continued into the first two weeks of October. While no business was permanently lost, entire drilling and completion programs in the region were notably delayed.

"As confirmed in recent statements by our colleagues at major service companies in the D-J Basin, the impact of the Colorado floods on operations and infrastructure was both prolonged and pervasive," said John Chisholm, Flotek Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While our concerns remain with the long-term recovery of the region and the people who were displaced as a result of flooding, we are pleased that our business has recovered after a somewhat prolonged period of recovery, largely a result of the challenges related to infrastructure availability and relocation. Moreover, our business has accelerated in recent weeks to near-record levels in the region."
