Flotek’s positive growth drivers

  • higher demand for prescriptive chemistry management platform
  • CnF price increases leading to expanding margins
  • 143% expansion of FTK’s CnF volumes from mid-2014 until 2Q17
  • asset sales enabled debt repayment

Flotek’s negative growth drivers

  • weaker-than-expected results in Canada, FTK’s largest international geography
  • the negative effect from raw material inflation in the citrus market (FTK’s CICT segments processes citrus oil, which is used in the consumer and oil & gas industry)

We’ll discuss the effect of the rig count and upstream operators’ capex on FTK’s financial performance next.
