This prospectus contains certain statements that are, or may be deemed to be, “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends affecting the financial condition of our business. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including, among other things, the risk factors described in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 and in the other reports we file with the SEC, most of which are beyond our control.

The words “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “seek,” “could,” “should,” “may,” “potential” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of current or historical fact contained in this prospectus are forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the forward-looking statements contained in this prospectus are based upon reasonable assumptions, the forward-looking events and circumstances discussed in this prospectus may not occur and actual results could differ materially from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that may affect our expectations, estimates or projections include:


    a decline in, or substantial volatility of, oil or natural gas prices, and any related changes in expenditures by our customers;


    the effects of future acquisitions on our business;


    changes in customer requirements in markets or industries we serve;


    competition within our industry;


    general economic and market conditions;


    our access to current or future financing arrangements;


    our ability to replace or add workers at economic rates; and


    environmental and other governmental regulations.

Our forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this prospectus. Unless otherwise required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.


This prospectus and the information incorporated herein by reference includes market share data, industry data and forecasts that we obtained from internal company surveys (including estimates based on our knowledge and experience in the industry in which we operate), market research, consultant surveys, publicly available information, industry publications and surveys. These sources include Baker Hughes Incorporated, the Association of Energy Service Companies (“AESC”), and the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy (“EIA”). Industry surveys and publications, consultant surveys and forecasts generally state that the information contained therein has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable. Although we believe such information is accurate and reliable, we have not independently verified any of the data from third-party sources cited or used for our management’s industry estimates, nor have we ascertained the underlying economic assumptions relied upon therein. Statements as to our position relative to our competitors or as to market share refer to the most recent available data.
