Quoting Management: “The second quarter of 2013 was and will continue to be a transformational tipping point in the history of Flotek Industries,” said John Chisholm, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Flotek. “Not only did ‘Flotek Classic’ post the second-best quarterly revenue in the Company’s history, it also completed the single-most important acquisition in the Company’s history in Florida Chemical. Not only does the Florida Chemical combination secure supply of the key ingredient in Flotek’s patented suite of advanced oilfield chemistries, it immediately provides a plethora of additional products to Flotek’s already robust chemical technology offerings. Moreover, it expands Flotek’s reach into key consumer markets and provides opportunities to intensify and reinvigorate our commitment to environmental stewardship in the oilfield. Most importantly, I believe it uniquely positions Flotek for significant growth for the balance of 2013 and beyond.”
