ProFrac Holding Corp. To Acquire Eagle Ford Sand Mine

WILLOW PARK, Texas, Dec. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- ProFrac Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: ACDC) ("ProFrac" or the "Company") today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Eagle Ford sand mining operations of Monarch Silica, LLC ("Monarch").  The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2022.

Matt Wilks, ProFrac's Executive Chairman, commented, "We are pleased to add the Monarch mine to the growing portfolio of in-basin sand mines we operate through Alpine Silica.  This transaction further demonstrates ProFrac's commitment to its vertical integration strategy, providing the Company with access to high-quality, local proppant in the Eagle Ford, where we currently operate 8 active fleets.  With Monarch's production capacity expected to expand to nearly 4 million tons per year by Q1 2023, ProFrac will be well positioned to bundle internally sourced proppant across our active fleets in the region."
