Leases [Abstract]  

12. Leases

Effective January 1, 2022, we adopted the new lease accounting guidance under ASC Topic 842, Leases. The details of the significant changes to our accounting policies resulting from the adoption of the new lease standard are set out below. We adopted the standard using the current period adjustment approach; accordingly, the comparative information as of December 31, 2021, has not been adjusted and continues to be reported under the previous lease standard. Under the new standard, assets and liabilities that arise from all leases are required to be recognized on the balance sheet for lessees. Previously, only capital leases, which are now referred to as finance leases, were recorded on the balance sheet. The adoption of this standard resulted in the recognition of approximately $35.8 million of operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities on our consolidated balance sheet as of January 1, 2022. The adoption of this standard did not materially impact our consolidated results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Beginning January 1, 2022, for all leases with a term in excess of 12 months, we recognized a lease liability equal to the present value of the lease payments and right-of-use asset representing our right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. For operating leases, lease expense for lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term and accretion of the lease liability, while finance leases include both an operating expense and an interest expense component. For all leases with a term of 12 months or less, we elected the practical expedient to not recognize lease assets and liabilities. We recognize lease expense for these short-term leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

We are a lessee for several operating leases, related primarily to real estate and light duty vehicles. The majority of our operating leases have remaining lease terms of 10 years or less. None of our leases include options to extend the leases, nor do any include options to terminate the leases. The accounting for leases may require judgment, which includes determining the incremental borrowing rates to utilize in our net present value calculation of lease payments for lease agreements which do not provide an implicit rate.

In connection with the completion of the FTSI acquisition, FTSI conveyed to Wilks Development, LLC, an affiliate of ProFrac LLC, substantially all of FTSI’s owned real property, consisting primarily of FTSI’s hydraulic fracturing equipment manufacturing facilities, in exchange for cash consideration of approximately $44.4 million (the “FTSI Sale Leaseback”). We will lease such real property from Wilks Development, LLC in exchange for aggregate monthly lease payments of $51.6 million through March 2032. The cash consideration received was $3.7 million less than the carrying value of these assets. Because this sale was to an affiliate under common control, we accounted for the $3.7 million as an equity transaction recorded as a deemed distribution within our consolidated statements of changes in equity.

Our leasing activities primarily consist of operating leases for administrative offices, manufacturing and maintenance facilities along with some light duty vehicles. We do not lease any equipment on a long-term basis.
