Description of Business

ProFrac Holding Corp. ("ProFrac Corp.") is a vertically integrated and innovation-driven energy services holding company providing hydraulic fracturing, proppant production, other completion services and other complementary products and services to leading upstream oil and natural gas companies engaged in the exploration and production (“E&P”) of North American unconventional oil and natural gas resources.

ProFrac Corp. operates in three business segments: stimulation services, proppant production and manufacturing. Our stimulation services segment owns and operates a fleet of mobile hydraulic fracturing units and other auxiliary equipment that generates revenue by providing stimulation services to our customers. Our proppant production segment provides proppant to oilfield service providers and E&P companies. Our manufacturing segment sells highly engineered, tight tolerance machined, assembled, and factory tested products such as high horsepower pumps, valves, piping, swivels, large-bore manifold systems, and fluid ends.

Basis of Presentation

On May 17, 2022, ProFrac Corp. completed its initial public offering and corporate reorganization and became the managing member of ProFrac Holdings, LLC ("ProFrac LLC"). The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented herein prior to May 17, 2022 consist of the accounts of ProFrac LLC and its subsidiaries (the "Predecessors"). The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented herein subsequent to May 17, 2022 include the accounts of ProFrac Corp. and those of its subsidiaries that are wholly-owned, controlled by it or a variable interest entity ("VIE") where it is the primary beneficiary. In these notes to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, ProFrac Corp. and ProFrac LLC together are referred to as "we," "our" or "us."

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Accordingly, certain information and disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. We believe that the presentations and disclosures herein are adequate to make the information not misleading. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) for a fair statement of the interim periods. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the full year. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in Item 8 "Financial Statements and Supplementary Data" of our Annual Report.

All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Concentrations of Risk

Our business activities are concentrated in the well completion services segment of the oilfield services industry in the United States. The market for these services is cyclical, and we depend on the willingness of our customers to make operating and capital expenditures to explore for, develop, and produce oil and natural gas in the United States. The willingness of our customers to undertake these activities depends largely upon prevailing industry conditions that are predominantly influenced by current and expected prices for oil and natural gas. Historically, a low commodity-price environment has caused our customers to significantly reduce their hydraulic fracturing activities and the prices they are willing to pay for those services. During these periods, these customer actions materially adversely affected our business, financial condition and results of operations.

New Accounting Standards to be Adopted

In March 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued an accounting pronouncement (ASU 2023-01) related to accounting for leases between entities under common control. The amendments in this update clarify the accounting for leasehold improvements associated with common control leases. This update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We do not expect the update to have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.
