Quoting Management: Mark D. Johnsrud, Chief Executive Officer of Nuverra Environmental Solutions, stated, “We made progress in the second quarter, as evidenced by the increase in revenues and improvement in adjusted EBITDA on a sequential basis. However, the financial results fell short of our expectations due to slower ramp up by E&P operators across all shale areas; extraordinarily cold and wet weather conditions in the Bakken Shale area; execution issues in the Eagle Ford Shale; hiring challenges in the Marcellus/Utica Shale areas; and underperformance in our Industrial Solutions business.”
