NEWPARK RESOURCES, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies
Newpark Resources, Inc. is a geographically diversified supplier providing environmentally-sensitive products, as well as rentals and services to customers across multiple industries. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Newpark Resources, Inc. and our wholly-owned subsidiaries, which we collectively refer to as the “Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us,” have been prepared in accordance with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X for interim financial statements required to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and do not include all information and footnotes required by the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Our fiscal year end is December 31, our second quarter represents the three month period ended June 30, and our first half represents the six month period ended June 30. The results of operations for the second quarter and first half of 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire year. Unless otherwise noted, all currency amounts are stated in U.S. dollars.
In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments necessary to present fairly our financial position as of June 30, 2022, our results of operations for the second quarter and first half of 2022 and 2021, and our cash flows for the first half of 2022 and 2021. All adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. Our balance sheet at December 31, 2021 is derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. For further information, see Note 1 in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
We operate our business through three segments: Fluids Systems, Industrial Solutions, and Industrial Blending. In the second quarter of 2022, we began reporting our business through these three reportable segments. Prior to this change, we aggregated our now exited Industrial Blending business and reported it within Industrial Solutions. We have reflected this change in all periods presented.
Our Fluids Systems segment provides customized drilling, completion, and stimulation fluids products and related technical services to oil and natural gas exploration and production (“E&P”) customers primarily in North America and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”), as well as certain countries in Asia Pacific and Latin America. We also have industrial mineral grinding operations for barite, a critical raw material in drilling fluids systems, which serve to support our activities in certain regions within the U.S. drilling fluids market and also sell the products to third party users, including other drilling fluids companies. In addition, we sell a variety of other minerals, principally to third-party industrial (non-oil and natural gas) markets. In February 2022, our Board of Directors approved a plan to explore strategic options for our U.S. mineral grinding business. See Note 11 for further information.
Our Industrial Solutions segment provides temporary worksite access, including the rental of our recyclable composite matting systems, along with related site construction and services to customers in various markets including power transmission, E&P, pipeline, renewable energy, petrochemical, construction and other industries, primarily in the United States and Europe. We also manufacture and sell our recyclable composite mats to customers around the world, with power transmission being the primary end-market.
Our Industrial Blending segment (previously reported within the Industrial Solutions segment) began operations in 2020 and supported industrial end-markets, including the production of disinfectants and industrial cleaning products. In February 2022, our Board of Directors approved a plan to exit our Industrial Blending operations. See Note 11 for further information. As part of the exit plan, we completed the wind down of the Industrial Blending business in the first quarter of 2022 and are currently pursuing the sale of the industrial blending and warehouse facility and related equipment located in Conroe, Texas. Beginning in the second quarter of 2022, the assets and operating results associated with our Industrial Blending operations have been reported as a separate segment for all periods presented.

Diluted$(0.08)$(0.07)$(0.06)$(0.12)
We excluded the following weighted-average potential shares from the calculations of diluted net loss per share during the applicable periods because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive:
 Second QuarterFirst Half
(In thousands)2022202120222021
Stock options and restricted stock awards5,169 5,863 5,432 5,583 
For the second quarter and first half of 2022 and 2021, we excluded all potentially dilutive stock options and restricted stock awards in calculating diluted earnings per share as the effect was anti-dilutive due to the net loss incurred for these periods.
Note 3 – Repurchase Program
Our repurchase program remains available for repurchases of our common stock. The repurchase program has no specific term. Repurchases are expected to be funded from operating cash flows, available cash on hand, and borrowings under our Amended ABL Facility (as defined in Note 7). As part of the share repurchase program, our management has been authorized to establish trading plans under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. As of June 30, 2022, we had $23.8 million remaining under the program.
There were no shares of common stock repurchased under the repurchase program during the first half of 2022 or 2021. During the first half of 2021, we repurchased $18.3 million of our Convertible Notes in the open market under the repurchase program for a total cost of $18.1 million.
Note 4 – Stock-Based and Other Long-Term Incentive Compensation
During the second quarter of 2022, our stockholders approved an amendment to the 2015 Employee Equity Incentive Plan (“2015 Plan”), increasing the number of shares authorized for issuance under the 2015 Plan from 14,300,000 to 15,300,000 shares, and also approved an amendment to the 2014 Non-Employee Directors’ Restricted Stock Plan (“2014 Director Plan”), increasing the number of shares authorized for issuance under the 2014 Director Plan from 1,200,000 to 1,400,000 shares.
During the second quarter of 2022, the Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors (“Compensation Committee”) approved equity-based compensation to executive officers and other key employees consisting of 1,977,096 restricted stock units, which will vest in equal installments over a three-year period. In addition, non-employee directors received a grant of 260,339 restricted stock awards, which will vest in full on the earlier of the day prior to the next annual meeting of stockholders following the grant date or the first anniversary of the grant date. At June 30, 2022, 1,589,403 shares remained available for award under the 2015 Plan and 86,188 shares remained available for award under the 2014 Director Plan. The weighted average grant-date fair value was $4.11 per share for both the restricted stock units and restricted stock awards.
Also during the second quarter of 2022, the Compensation Committee approved the issuance of performance-based cash awards to certain executive officers with a target value of $2.8 million. The performance-based cash awards will be settled
8


based on the relative ranking of our total shareholder return (“TSR”) as compared to the TSR of our designated peer group over a three-year performance period. The performance period began June 1, 2022 and ends May 31, 2025, with the ending TSR price being equal to the average closing price of our shares over the 30-calendar days ending May 31, 2025 and the cash payout for each executive ranging from 0% to 200% of target. The performance-based cash awards are accrued as a liability award over the performance period based on the estimated fair value. The fair value of the performance-based cash awards is remeasured each period using a Monte-Carlo valuation model with changes in fair value recognized in the consolidated statements of operations.
Note 5 – Receivables
Receivables consisted of the following:

Total receivables, net$192,801 $194,296 
Other receivables included $4.6 million and $5.7 million for value added, goods and service taxes related to foreign jurisdictions as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. In addition, other receivables included an insurance receivable balance resulting from a property insurance claim caused by Hurricane Ida in August 2021 of $0.3 million and $1.9 million as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. As of June 30, 2022, the claims related to the hurricane under our property insurance program have not been finalized.
Changes in our allowance for credit losses were as follows:

Finished goods - mats7,254 3,367 
Total inventories$190,171 $155,341 
Raw materials for the Fluids Systems segment consist primarily of barite, chemicals, and other additives that are consumed in the production of our fluids systems. Raw materials for the Industrial Solutions segment consist primarily of resins, chemicals, and other materials used to manufacture composite mats, as well as materials that are consumed in providing spill containment and other services to our customers. Our blended fluids systems components consist of base fluids systems that have been either mixed internally at our blending facilities or purchased from third-party vendors. These base fluids systems require raw materials to be added, as needed to meet specified customer requirements.
9


The increase in inventories in the first half of 2022 was primarily attributable to a combination of raw materials cost inflation, activity-driven increases, and elevated vendor prepayments in the Fluids Systems segment, as well as the production of mats in the Industrial Solutions segment for anticipated sales.
Note 7 – Financing Arrangements and Fair Value of Financial Instruments
Financing arrangements consisted of the following:

Long-term debt$122,164 $(189)$121,975 $95,781 $(188)$95,593 
Convertible Notes. In December 2016, we issued $100.0 million of unsecured convertible senior notes (“Convertible Notes”) which bore interest at a rate of 4.0% per year and matured in December 2021. A total of $38.6 million of our Convertible Notes were repaid at maturity. During the first half of 2021, we repurchased $18.3 million of our Convertible Notes in the open market for a total cost of $18.1 million, and recognized a net loss of $0.8 million reflecting the difference in the amount paid and the net carrying value of the extinguished debt, including original issue discount and debt issuance costs.
Asset-Based Loan Facility. In October 2017, we entered into an asset-based revolving credit agreement, which was amended in March 2019 (the “ABL Facility”). In May 2022, we amended and restated the ABL Facility (the “Amended ABL Facility”). The Amended ABL Facility provides financing of up to $175.0 million available for borrowings (inclusive of letters of credit), which can be increased up to $250.0 million, subject to certain conditions. The Amended ABL Facility has a five-year term expiring May 2027, expands available borrowing capacity associated with the Industrial Solutions rental mat fleet, replaces the LIBOR-based pricing grid with a Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield Index (“BSBY”) pricing grid, and includes a mechanism to incorporate a sustainability-linked pricing framework with the consent of the required lenders (as defined in the Amended ABL Facility).
As of June 30, 2022, our total availability under the Amended ABL Facility was $155.3 million, of which $110.0 million was drawn and $1.4 million was used for outstanding letters of credit, resulting in remaining availability of $43.9 million.
Borrowing availability under the Amended ABL Facility is calculated based on eligible U.S. accounts receivable, inventory and composite mats included in the rental fleet, net of reserves and subject to limits on certain of the assets included in the borrowing base calculation. To the extent pledged by the borrowers, the borrowing base calculation also includes the amount of eligible pledged cash. The administrative agent may establish reserves in accordance with the Amended ABL Facility, in part based on appraisals of the asset base, and other limits in its discretion, which could reduce the amounts otherwise available under the Amended ABL Facility.
Under the terms of the Amended ABL Facility, we may elect to borrow at a variable interest rate based on either, (1) the BSBY rate (subject to a floor of zero) or (2) the base rate (subject to a floor of zero), equal to the highest of (a) the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, (b) the prime rate of Bank of America, N.A., and (c) BSBY for a one-month interest period plus 1.00%, plus, in each case, an applicable margin per annum. The applicable margin ranges from 1.50% to 2.00% per annum for BSBY borrowings, and 0.50% to 1.00% per annum for base rate borrowings, based on the consolidated leverage ratio (as defined in the Amended ABL Facility) as of the last day of the most recent fiscal quarter. We are also required to pay a commitment fee equal to (i) 0.375% per annum at any time the average daily unused portion of the commitments is greater than 50% and (ii) 0.25% per annum at any time the average daily unused portion of the commitments is less than 50%.
As of June 30, 2022, the applicable margin for borrowings under the Amended ABL Facility was 1.50% with respect to BSBY borrowings and 0.50% with respect to base rate borrowings. As of June 30, 2022, the weighted average interest rate for the Amended ABL Facility was 2.84% and the applicable commitment fee on the unused portion of the Amended ABL Facility was 0.25% per annum.
10


The Amended ABL Facility is a senior secured obligation of the Company and certain of our U.S. subsidiaries constituting borrowers thereunder, secured by a first priority lien on substantially all of the personal property and certain real property of the borrowers, including a first priority lien on certain equity interests of direct or indirect domestic subsidiaries of the borrowers and certain equity interests issued by certain foreign subsidiaries of the borrowers.
The Amended ABL Facility contains customary representations, warranties and covenants that, among other things, and subject to certain specified circumstances and exceptions, restrict or limit the ability of the borrowers and certain of their subsidiaries to incur indebtedness (including guarantees), grant liens, make investments, pay dividends or distributions with respect to capital stock and make other restricted payments, make prepayments on certain indebtedness, engage in mergers or other fundamental changes, dispose of property, and change the nature of their business.
The Amended ABL Facility requires compliance with the following financial covenants: (i) a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.00 to 1.00 for the most recently completed four fiscal quarters and (ii) while a leverage covenant trigger period (as defined in the Amended ABL Facility) is in effect, a maximum consolidated leverage ratio of 4.00 to 1.00 as of the last day of the most recently completed fiscal quarter.
The Amended ABL Facility includes customary events of default including non-payment of principal, interest or fees, violation of covenants, inaccuracy of representations or warranties, cross-default to other material indebtedness, bankruptcy and insolvency events, invalidity or impairment of security interests or invalidity of loan documents, certain ERISA events, unsatisfied or unstayed judgments and change of control.
Other Debt. In August 2021, we completed sale-leaseback transactions related to certain vehicles and other equipment for net proceeds of approximately $7.9 million. The transactions have been accounted for as financing arrangements as they did not qualify for sale accounting. As a result, the vehicles and other equipment continue to be reflected on our balance sheet in property, plant and equipment, net. The financing arrangements have a weighted average annual interest rate of 5.4% and are payable in monthly installments with varying maturities through October 2025. We had $5.0 million in financing obligations outstanding under these arrangements at June 30, 2022.
In February 2021, a U.K. subsidiary entered a £6.0 million (approximately $8.3 million) term loan facility that was scheduled to mature in February 2024. In April 2022, this facility was amended to increase the term loan to £7.0 million (approximately $9.1 million) and add a £2.0 million (approximately $2.6 million) revolving credit facility. Both the amended term loan and revolving credit facility mature in April 2025 and bear interest at a rate of SONIA plus a margin of 3.25% per year. The term loan is payable in quarterly installments of £350,000 plus interest beginning June 2022 and a £2.8 million payment due at maturity. We had $10.4 million outstanding under these arrangements at June 30, 2022.
Certain of our foreign subsidiaries maintain local credit arrangements consisting primarily of lines of credit or overdraft facilities which are generally renewed on an annual basis. We utilize local financing arrangements in our foreign operations in order to provide short-term local liquidity needs. We had $11.9 million and $11.8 million outstanding under these arrangements at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
In addition, at June 30, 2022, we had $50.2 million in outstanding letters of credit, performance bonds, and other guarantees for which certain of the letters of credit are collateralized by $4.4 million in restricted cash.
Our financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, receivables, payables, and debt. We believe the carrying values of these instruments approximated their fair values at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021.
Note 8 – Income Taxes
The benefit for income taxes was $2.3 million for the first half of 2022, which includes an income tax benefit of $3.1 million related to the restructuring of certain subsidiary legal entities within Europe, as the undistributed earnings for an international subsidiary are no longer subject to certain taxes upon future distribution. The provision for income taxes in the first half of 2022 reflects the impact from the geographic composition of our earnings and was unfavorably impacted as we are unable to recognize a tax benefit related to the $7.9 million impairment charge. The provision for income taxes was $3.4 million for the first half of 2021, despite reporting a pretax loss for the period, primarily reflecting the impact of the geographic composition of our pretax loss. The tax expense in 2021 primarily related to earnings from our international operations since we were unable to recognize the tax benefit from our U.S. losses as they may not be realized.
Note 9 – Commitments and Contingencies
In the ordinary course of conducting our business, we become involved in litigation and other claims from private party actions, as well as judicial and administrative proceedings involving governmental authorities at the federal, state, and local levels. While the outcome of litigation or other proceedings against us cannot be predicted with certainty, management does not expect that any loss resulting from such litigation or other proceedings, in excess of any amounts accrued or covered by insurance, will have a material adverse impact on our consolidated financial statements.

With ongoing support from outside financial and other advisors, we have continuously reviewed our portfolio during the oil and natural gas cycle of the last couple of years. These reviews have focused on evaluating changes in the outlook for our served markets and customer priorities, while identifying opportunities for value-creating options in our portfolio, placing investment emphasis in markets where we generate strong returns and where we see greater long-term viability and stability. As part of the ongoing review of our portfolio, our Board of Directors approved two actions in February 2022 intended to enhance liquidity available for investment in higher returning businesses.
First, in consideration of broader strategic priorities and the timeline and efforts required to further develop the industrial blending business, our Board of Directors approved a plan in February 2022 to exit our Industrial Blending operations. As part of the exit plan, we completed the wind down of the Industrial Blending business in the first quarter of 2022 and are currently pursuing the sale of the industrial blending and warehouse facility and related equipment located in Conroe, Texas.
13


As a result of the plan to exit and dispose of the assets used in the Industrial Blending business, we disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 that we may incur pre-tax charges in the range of approximately $4 million to $8 million primarily related to the non-cash impairment of long-lived assets used in the Industrial Blending business. In March 2022, we shut down the Industrial Blending business and initiated a sales process to market the industrial blending and warehouse facility and related equipment. In June 2022, as a result of the ongoing sales process and revised estimates for the expected net proceeds from the ultimate disposition, we recognized a $7.9 million impairment charge related to these long-lived assets. As of June 30, 2022, the remaining carrying value of the long-lived assets previously used in the now exited Industrial Blending business was $11 million. It remains possible that we may incur a future impairment or loss related to the ongoing sales process.
Second, our Board of Directors approved management’s plan to explore strategic options, including the potential sale, for our U.S. mineral grinding business. During the second quarter of 2022, we initiated a formal sale process that we anticipate completing in 2022, although it is not certain that any such transaction will be consummated. The U.S. mineral grinding business contributed third-party revenues of $26 million for the first half of 2022 and $16 million for the first half of 2021. As of June 30, 2022, the U.S. mineral grinding business had approximately $53 million of net capital employed, including approximately $31 million of net working capital.
Industrial Solutions operating results for the second quarter of 2021 included a $1.0 million gain in other operating income related to a legal settlement.

ITEM 2.    Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion of our financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, and capital resources should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in this report as well as our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Our second quarter represents the three-month period ended June 30 and our first half represents the six-month period ended June 30. Unless otherwise noted, all currency amounts are stated in U.S. dollars. The reference to a “Note” herein refers to the accompanying Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 1 “Financial Statements.”
Overview
Newpark Resources, Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) is a geographically diversified supplier providing environmentally-sensitive products, as well as rentals and services to customers across multiple industries. We operate our business through three segments: Industrial Solutions, which serves various markets including power transmission, oil and natural gas exploration and production (“E&P”), pipeline, renewable energy, petrochemical, construction and other industries; Fluids Systems, which primarily serves E&P customers; and Industrial Blending, which we shut down in March 2022.
The relative contribution of revenues and operating income for the Industrial Solutions and Fluids Systems segments for the first half of 2022 is as follows (amounts in millions):
nr-20220630_g2.jpgnr-20220630_g3.jpg
As illustrated above, while the Fluids Systems segment has historically been the primary driver of revenues, the Industrial Solutions segment has historically been, and remains the primary driver of operating income, cash flows, and financial returns.
Our long-term strategy includes key foundational elements that are intended to enhance long-term shareholder value creation:
End-market diversification – To help reduce our dependency on customers in the volatile E&P industry, provide growth opportunities into new markets, and ultimately improve the stability in cash flow generation and returns on invested capital, we have focused our efforts over the past several years on expanding our presence beyond our historical E&P customer base. These efforts have been primarily focused within our Industrial Solutions segment, where we have prioritized growth in power transmission, pipeline, renewable energy, and construction markets. The continued expansion of revenues in industrial markets, and particularly end-markets that are likely to benefit from ongoing energy transition efforts around the world, such as power transmission, renewable energy, and geothermal, remains a strategic priority going forward, and we anticipate that our capital investments will primarily focus on supporting this objective.
Provide products that enhance environmental sustainability – The Company has a long history of providing environmentally-sensitive technologies to our customers. In the Industrial Solutions segment, we believe the lightweight design of our fully recyclable DURA-BASE® matting system provides a distinct environmental advantage for our customers as compared to alternative wood mat products in the market, by eliminating deforestation required to produce wood mat products while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with product transportation. We also continue to leverage our investments in research and development capabilities and adaptable manufacturing processes to increase the use of recycled and alternate materials in our composite mat production, providing further potential economic benefits along with a significant reduction in lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions when compared to
15


using traditional virgin resin. In our Fluids Systems segment, our family of high-performance water-based fluids systems, which we market as Evolution® and DeepDrill® systems, are designed to enhance drilling performance while also providing a variety of environmental benefits relative to traditional oil-based fluids. Our Fluids Systems segment has also developed a water-based fluids system for geothermal applications that we market as TerraThermTM designed specifically for clean-energy geothermal drilling, as well as the TransitionTM family of brine-tolerant stimulation chemicals, which reduce the freshwater required for well stimulation applications. The continued advancement of technology that provides our customers with economic benefits, while also enhancing their environmental and safety programs, remains a priority for our research and development efforts.
Segment Overview
In the second quarter of 2022, we began reporting our business through three reportable segments: Fluids Systems, Industrial Solutions, and Industrial Blending. Prior to this change, we aggregated our now exited Industrial Blending business and reported it within Industrial Solutions. We have reflected this change in all periods presented.
Industrial Solutions – Our Industrial Solutions segment, which generated 23% of revenues and $16.1 million of operating income for the first half of 2022, provides temporary worksite access solutions, including the rental of our recyclable composite matting systems, along with related site construction and services to customers in various markets including power transmission, E&P, pipeline, renewable energy, petrochemical, construction and other industries, primarily in the United States and Europe. We also manufacture and sell our recyclable composite mats to customers around the world, with power transmission being the primary end-market. Over the past year, the impacts of global supply chain disruptions have caused significant cost inflation to the resin and other materials used to manufacture our composite mats. These raw material cost increases have negatively impacted the profitability of our business, although we are working with customers to offset the inflationary impact.
Our Industrial Solutions segment has been the primary source of operating income and cash generation for us in recent years and has also been the primary focus for growth investments. The growth of this business in the power transmission and other industrial markets remains a strategic priority for us due to such markets’ relative stability compared to E&P, as well as the magnitude of growth opportunity in these markets, including the potential positive impact from the energy transition. From 2018 to 2021, annual segment revenues from these targeted industrial markets increased from approximately $116 million to $157 million, reflecting a 11% cumulative annual growth rate, and we look to build upon this success going forward through both organic and inorganic growth opportunities. We expect customer activity, particularly in the power transmission sector, will remain robust in the coming years, driven in part by the impacts of the energy transition and the increasing investment in grid reliance initiatives.
Industrial Blending – In 2020, we began leveraging our oilfield chemical blending capacity and technical expertise into industrial blending operations, and in response to the increasing market demand for cleaning products resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, began producing disinfectants and industrial cleaning products in 2020. Despite our initial success, a key blue-chip customer experienced a significant decline in product demand and cancelled all orders of disinfectants and cleaning products in the third quarter of 2021. In February 2022, in consideration of broader strategic priorities and the timeline and efforts required to further develop the Industrial Blending business, our Board of Directors approved a plan to exit our Industrial Blending operations. As part of the exit plan, we completed the wind down of the Industrial Blending business in the first quarter of 2022 and initiated a sales process to market the industrial blending and warehouse facility and related equipment located in Conroe, Texas.
As a result of the plan to exit and dispose of the assets used in the Industrial Blending business, we disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 that we may incur pre-tax charges in the range of approximately $4 million to $8 million primarily related to the non-cash impairment of long-lived assets used in the Industrial Blending business. In June 2022, as a result of the ongoing sales process and revised estimates for the expected net proceeds from the ultimate disposition, we recognized a $7.9 million impairment charge related to these long-lived assets. As of June 30, 2022, the remaining carrying value of the long-lived assets previously used in the now exited Industrial Blending business was $11 million. It remains possible that we may incur a future impairment or loss related to the ongoing sales process.
Fluids Systems – Our Fluids Systems segment, which generated 77% of consolidated revenues and $3.8 million of operating income for the first half of 2022, provides drilling, completion, and stimulation fluids products and related technical services to customers for oil, natural gas, and geothermal projects primarily in North America and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”), as well as certain countries in Asia Pacific and Latin America. Our Fluids Systems operating results remain dependent on oil and natural gas drilling activity levels in the markets we serve and the nature of the drilling operations (including the depth and whether the wells are drilled vertically or horizontally), which governs the revenue potential of each well. Drilling activity levels, in turn, depend on a variety of factors, including oil and natural gas commodity pricing, inventory levels, product demand, and regulatory restrictions. Oil and natural gas prices and activity are cyclical and volatile, and this market volatility has a significant impact on our operating results.
16


While our Fluids Systems revenue potential is driven by a number of factors including those described above, rig count data remains the most widely accepted indicator of drilling activity. Average North American rig count data for the second quarter and first half of 2022 as compared to the same periods of 2021 is as follows:
 Second Quarter2022 vs 2021
 20222021Count%

During March 2020, oil prices collapsed due to geopolitical events along with the worldwide effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, U.S. rig count declined significantly beginning in March 2020 before reaching a low of 244 in August 2020. During 2021, oil prices rebounded, and the average U.S. rig count gradually increased, ending 2021 at 586 rigs. During 2022, oil prices have significantly increased due to geopolitical events, and the average U.S. rig count has continued to increase. We anticipate that market activity will continue to improve in 2022, although U.S. activity is expected to remain below 2019 levels as many of our customers maintain stronger capital discipline and prioritize cash flow generation over growth. Further, in the wake of COVID-19, an uncertain economic environment, including widespread supply chain disruptions, as well as enacted and proposed legislative changes in the U.S. impacting the oil and natural gas industry, make market activity levels difficult to predict. The Canada rig count reflects normal seasonality for this market, with the highest rig count levels generally observed in the first quarter of each year, prior to Spring break-up.
Outside of North America land markets, drilling activity is generally more stable as this drilling activity is based on longer-term economic projections and multi-year drilling programs, which typically reduces the impact of short-term changes in commodity prices on overall drilling activity. However, operations in several countries in the EMEA region experienced activity disruptions and project delays beginning in early 2020 and continuing through 2021, driven by government-imposed restrictions on movements of personnel, quarantines of staffing, and logistical limitations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Revenues and profitability from our international Fluids Systems business gradually recovered in 2021, with revenues for the first half of 2022 near pre-COVID levels. The combination of increasing activity levels combined with the impacts of global supply chain disruptions have caused significant cost inflation to many hydrocarbon-based products and chemicals used in our fluids systems, and in many cases, we are unable to adjust our customer pricing due to the long-term contracts in place. Consequently, the inflationary impacts are negatively impacting the profitability of our international operations, and we expect this trend to continue throughout 2022, though the impact of cost inflation is very difficult to predict.
Looking ahead, the combination of recent geopolitical events and elevated oil and natural gas prices are causing a renewed desire within several markets to increase drilling activity levels, to help ensure reliable energy supply in the coming years, as many markets bridge to a higher reliance on renewable sources over the longer-term. Consequently, the outlook for several markets, including North America and the EMEA region, continues to strengthen, with growth in activity expected over the next few years, particularly as certain countries seek to limit their dependency on Russia-sourced oil and natural gas.
Following the 2020 market collapse and reduced demand for our products and services as a result of the decline in oil prices and the COVID-19 pandemic, we took a number of actions during 2020 and continuing into 2021 aimed at conserving cash and protecting our liquidity, which included the implementation of cost reduction programs, including workforce reductions, employee furloughs, the suspension of the Company’s matching contributions to its U.S. defined contribution plan, and temporary salary reductions effective April 1, 2020 for a significant portion of U.S. employees. Beginning in the second quarter of 2021, we restored salaries to pre-reduction levels for a portion of our non-executive U.S. employees and reinstituted the Company matching contribution for our U.S. defined contribution plan, with the remainder of the temporary salary reductions restored by the third quarter of 2021.
Over the past two years, we have continued to work closely with outside financial and other advisors, continuously reviewing our portfolio and the evolving outlook for our served markets and customer priorities, while identifying opportunities for value-creating options in our portfolio, placing investment emphasis in markets where we generate strong returns and where
17


we see greater long-term viability and stability. While we have taken meaningful actions to reduce our workforce and cost structure, our business contains high levels of fixed costs, including significant facility and personnel expense. As part of this portfolio review, during the first quarter of 2022, our Board of Directors approved management’s plan to explore strategic options, including the potential sale, for our U.S. mineral grinding business. During the second quarter of 2022, we initiated a formal sale process that we anticipate completing in 2022, although it is not certain that any such transaction will be consummated. The U.S. mineral grinding business contributed third-party revenues of $26 million for the first half of 2022 and $16 million for the first half of 2021. As of June 30, 2022, the U.S. mineral grinding business had approximately $53 million of net capital employed, including approximately $31 million of net working capital.
We continue to evaluate other under-performing areas of our business, including the Gulf of Mexico and certain international oil and natural gas markets, and anticipate additional actions may be necessary to optimize our operational footprint and invested capital in Fluids Systems to transform this business for the evolving market realities. As a result, we may incur future charges related to these efforts or potential asset impairments, which may negatively impact our future results.

Revenues
Revenues increased 36% to $194.1 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $142.2 million for the second quarter of 2021. This $51.9 million increase includes a $40.9 million (40%) increase in revenues in North America, comprised of a $35.0 million increase in the Fluids Systems segment and a $7.8 million increase in the Industrial Solutions segment, partially offset by a $1.9 million decrease in the Industrial Blending segment. Revenues from our North America operations increased primarily due to the improvement in North America rig count, which favorably impacted our Fluids Systems segment, and an increase in revenues from product sales in our Industrial Solutions segment, which typically fluctuate based on the timing of customer projects and orders. Revenues from our international operations increased by $11.0 million (27%), as the prior year was unfavorably impacted by activity disruptions and project delays resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, partially offset by a $5.1 million reduction from currency exchange rate changes. Additional information regarding the change in revenues is provided within the operating segment results below.
Cost of revenues
Cost of revenues increased 36% to $168.2 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $124.1 million for the second quarter of 2021. This $44.1 million increase was primarily driven by the 36% increase in revenues described above, along with inflationary cost pressures impacting materials, transportation, and labor.
Selling, general and administrative expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $1.4 million to $24.3 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $23.0 million for the second quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily driven by higher personnel expense, including performance-based incentive compensation expense. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues was 12.5% for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 16.2% for the second quarter of 2021.
Other operating income, net
Other operating income for the second quarter of 2021 included a $1.0 million gain related to a legal settlement in the Industrial Solutions segment. Other operating income also includes gains on sales of assets.
Impairment
The Industrial Blending segment includes a $7.9 million non-cash impairment charge in the second quarter of 2022 related to the ongoing process to sell the assets previously used in this now exited business, as described above.

19


Foreign currency exchange
Foreign currency exchange was a $0.6 million gain for the second quarter of 2022 compared to a $0.2 million loss for the second quarter of 2021, and reflects the impact of currency translation on assets and liabilities (including intercompany balances) that are denominated in currencies other than functional currencies.
Interest expense, net
Interest expense was $1.6 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2021. Interest expense for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021 includes $0.4 million and $1.0 million, respectively, in non-cash amortization of original issue discount and debt issuance costs. The decrease in interest expense is primarily due to the 2021 repayment of our Convertible Notes with borrowings under the ABL Facility.
Provision for income taxes
The provision for income taxes was $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2022, despite reporting a pretax loss for the period, as we are unable to recognize a tax benefit for the $7.9 million impairment charge and reflecting the impact of the geographic composition of our earnings. The provision for income taxes was $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2021, despite reporting a pretax loss for the period, primarily reflecting the impact of the geographic composition of our pretax loss. The tax expense in 2021 primarily related to earnings from our international operations since we were unable to recognize the tax benefit from our U.S. losses as they may not be realized.
