16:28 EDTFTKFlotek reports Q1 EPS (3c), consensus 14c
Reports Q1 revenue $82.4M, consensus $103.33M. The company said, "The decrease in revenue was driven by the steep decline in oilfield activity as indicated by the 25.5% decline in the average North American rig count." It added, "While we are disappointed in our first quarter results and are laser-focused on identifying best practices that will further improve our business, the rapid deterioration in oilfield activity was the primary contributor to both the decline in overall activity and resulting pricing pressures. That said, regardless of the cyclical pressures, leadership is about finding opportunities in all market environments and that is what Flotek intends to do as we continue our quest to be the premier oilfield technology company in North America and create best-in-class value for our stakeholders."

07:39 EDTFTKFlotek: Rapid deceleration in commodity had a marked impact in Q1 results
Flotek cited the rapid deceleration in commodity prices and the resulting evisceration in oilfield activity has having a marked impact in Q1 results. Expects 1H15 to be "sloppy." The company added, "The decline in revenue approximated the decline in overall oilfield activity which was much more pronounced than nearly anyone would have expected. That said, we have been through industry cycles before and are well positioned to weather the tumult of the trough and emerge as a leader in oilfield technology, with a solid balance sheet and financial position to take advantage of opportunities as the industry emerges from the depths of the current cycle... "On the chemistry front, we continue to see new validation opportunities and are working with over 40 companies in various stages of validation projects in North America. While activity and pricing has moderated for all products, we have been pleased by the continued strength in chemistry inquiries and validation projects."

07:04 EDTFTKFlotek and Solazyme announce strategic agreements to develop technologies
Flotek Industries (FTK) and Solazyme (SZYM) announced the companies and certain subsidiaries have entered into agreements to globally commercialize Flocapso. In addition, Flotek will market Solazyme's Encapso lubricant - the first commercially available, biodegradable encapsulated lubricant for drilling fluids in certain Middle Eastern markets. Under the Joint Product Development and Marketing Agreement, Flotek and Solazyme will commercialize and market Flocapso, a proprietary formulation combining Flotek's patented Complex nano-Fluid chemistries with Solazyme's proprietary Encapso technology to create an environmentally-conscious, highly effective drilling fluid additive focused on better lubricity and greater stabilization for drilling programs worldwide. Laboratory and commercial testing indicate that the Flocapso additive will allow the use of water-based fluids in wells that previously required more expensive and invasive oil-based products, providing an environmentally superior, more efficient solution to drilling challenges around the globe. Under the Joint Agreement, Flotek and Solazyme will continue the development of the Flocapso chemistries and work cooperatively to market Flocapso worldwide. The companies are currently in an active validation project with a large national oil company in the Middle East and are pursuing commercial applications in both domestic and international markets.
