Net income during the first quarter of 2021 is inclusive of a $5.1 million income tax benefit associated with a partial release of our valuation allowance and $0.4 million in non-routine fees and expenses recorded in connection with the offering of Class A common stock in March 2021 by certain selling stockholders. Net income during the first quarter of 2020 is inclusive of $1.0 million in non-routine charges related to severance incurred in connection with workforce reduction initiatives undertaken during the period.

(2)

Net income, as adjusted and diluted earnings per share, as adjusted are non-GAAP financial measures. These figures assume Cactus, Inc. held all units in Cactus Wellhead, LLC ("Cactus LLC"), its operating subsidiary, at the beginning of the period. Additional information regarding net income, as adjusted and diluted earnings per share, as adjusted and the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures are in the Supplemental Information tables.

(3)

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See definition of Adjusted EBITDA and the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures in the Supplemental Information tables.

The percentage of Adjusted EBITDA to Revenues.

Scott Bender, President and CEO of Cactus, commented, "While the storms that impacted the Southern U.S. presented challenges in February, we were pleased to achieve significant growth across all of our revenue categories during the first quarter. Cactus maintained Product market share(1) above 40% during the period, as the number of rigs we followed increased by approximately 27% sequentially. In Rental, we were pleased to see significant revenue gains as customers showed an increased appreciation for reliability and efficiency. Additionally, we delivered free cash flow above our dividend and related distributions despite outflows associated with increased working capital needs.

"Looking to the second quarter, we expect further gains in rigs followed. In addition, we believe the impact from increased customer demand is beginning to benefit our business in metrics above and beyond activity improvements. On the new technology front, we successfully deployed our first electric-powered rental equipment. In total, we expect Company revenue to be up in excess of 20% sequentially for the second quarter, primarily driven by our Product business."

Mr. Bender concluded, "The U.S. market recovery is now in full swing. Safety, returns and free cash flow will remain our top priorities as we evaluate growth opportunities. As a provider of differentiated products and services, our team is confident that the expected increases in activity levels and benefits of greater operating leverage will enable the business to generate attractive returns."

Gross profit increased $1.1 million sequentially and margins increased 1,210 basis points as depreciation expense represented a lower percentage of revenue during the period, which was partially offset by increased equipment reactivation costs.

First quarter 2021 field service and other revenue increased $3.5 million, or 21.2%, sequentially, as higher customer activity drove an increase in associated billable hours and ancillary services. Gross profit increased $0.6 million, or 11.1%, sequentially, with margins decreasing by 250 basis points sequentially due to higher labor costs associated with partial wage reinstatements instituted during the quarter as well as reduced labor and equipment utilization associated with the adverse winter weather that impacted operations in February.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses ("SG&A")

SG&A expense for the first quarter of 2021 was $9.6 million (11.4% of revenues), compared to $9.0 million (13.2% of revenues) for the fourth quarter of 2020 and $13.7 million (8.9% of revenues) for the first quarter of 2020. The sequential increase was primarily due to higher payroll expenses and a larger bonus accrual.

Liquidity, Capital Expenditures and Other

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had $292.0 million of cash and no bank debt outstanding. Operating cash flow was $15.7 million for the first quarter of 2021. During the first quarter, the Company made dividend payments and associated distributions of $6.2 million.

Net cash used in investing activities was $2.0 million during the first quarter of 2021, driven largely by additions to the Company’s fleet of rental equipment. For the full year 2021, the Company expects capital expenditures to be in the range of $10 to $15 million.

On March 12, 2021, Cactus closed an underwritten secondary offering of approximately 6.3 million shares of its Class A common stock by certain selling stockholders. Cactus did not receive any proceeds from the sale of the common stock in the offering. Cactus incurred $0.4 million in costs associated with the offering, which were recorded as Other Expense.

As of March 31, 2021, Cactus had 54,317,589 shares of Class A common stock outstanding (representing 71.8% of the total voting power) and 21,382,577 shares of Class B common stock outstanding (representing 28.2% of the total voting power).

Quarterly Dividend

The Board has approved the payment of a cash dividend of $0.09 per share of Class A common stock to be paid on June 17, 2021 to holders of record of Class A common stock at the close of business on May 31, 2021. A corresponding distribution of up to $0.09 per CW Unit has also been approved for holders of CW Units of Cactus Wellhead, LLC.

Net income, as adjusted and diluted earnings per share, as adjusted

(unaudited)

Net income, as adjusted and diluted earnings per share, as adjusted are not measures of net income as determined by GAAP. Net income, as adjusted and diluted earnings per share, as adjusted are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Cactus defines net income, as adjusted as net income assuming Cactus, Inc. held all units in Cactus LLC, its operating subsidiary, at the beginning of the period, with the resulting additional income tax expense related to the incremental income attributable to Cactus, Inc. Net income, as adjusted, also includes certain other adjustments described below. Cactus defines diluted earnings per share, as adjusted as net income, as adjusted divided by weighted average shares outstanding, as adjusted. The Company believes this supplemental information is useful for evaluating performance period over period.

Cactus, Inc. – Supplemental Information

Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

(unaudited)

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of net income as determined by GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. Cactus defines EBITDA as net income excluding net interest, income tax and depreciation and amortization. Cactus defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA excluding the other items outlined below.

Cactus management believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful because they allow management to more effectively evaluate the Company’s operating performance and compare the results of its operations from period to period without regard to financing methods or capital structure, or other items that impact comparability of financial results from period to period. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to, or more meaningful than, net income or any other measure as determined in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s computations of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Cactus presents EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes they provide useful information regarding the factors and trends affecting the Company’s business.

Cactus, Inc. – Supplemental Information

Estimated Market Share

(unaudited)

Market share represents the average number of active U.S. onshore rigs Cactus followed (which Cactus defines as the number of active U.S. onshore drilling rigs to which it was the primary provider of wellhead products and corresponding services during drilling) as of mid-month for each of the three months in the applicable quarter divided by the Baker Hughes U.S. onshore rig count quarterly average. Cactus believes that comparing the total number of active U.S. onshore rigs to which it was providing its products and services at a given time to the number of active U.S. onshore rigs during the same period provides Cactus with a reasonable approximation of its market share with respect to wellhead products sold and the corresponding services it provides.
