Basic Energy Services Completes Acquisition of Maverick Companies

MIDLAND, Texas, July 11, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

Basic Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: BAS) ("Basic") announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the outstanding equity interests of the Maverick group of companies ("Maverick") for a total cash consideration of $180.0 million, net of working capital acquired. Maverick, founded in 1996, provides stimulation, coil tubing and thru-tubing services from operating bases in Ft. Morgan, Grand Junction and Trinidad, Colorado; Farmington, New Mexico; Vernal, Utah and Bartlesville, Oklahoma. As of the date of the acquisition, Maverick employed more than 180 people and operated approximately 60,000 horsepower in its stimulation segment and 7 coil tubing spreads.

Basic expects this acquisition to be accretive to earnings immediately and contribute revenue and EBITDA (defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of approximately $64.0 million and $22.0 million, respectively, in the second half of 2011. For 2012, Basic expects that the revenue contribution from this acquisition will be approximately $140.0 million.

Ken Huseman, Basic's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Maverick is a great example of the type of acquisition that we believe helps build value for our shareholders. Maverick's experienced management and well-trained field personnel combined with its high quality, late-model equipment has developed a reputation as a first-class service provider in markets where, for the most part, we do not currently compete. We look forward to providing the Maverick management team the resources necessary to continue building service capabilities within our footprint in the Rocky Mountain market. In addition, we believe the Maverick coil tubing platform provides us with an excellent foundation to rapidly build upon in several markets where we already have a substantial operating presence."

Basic Energy Services provides well site services essential to maintaining production from the oil and gas wells within its operating area. The company employs more than 5,200 employees in more than 100 service points throughout the major oil and gas producing regions in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas, Kansas, and the Rocky Mountain and Appalachian regions.
