  • As consideration for the amendment, the agreement provides that the Company will issue $50 million principal amount of 10% Convertible PIK Notes to ProFrac and grant ProFrac the right to nominate two members of the Company’s board (in addition to the two members ProFrac is entitled to nominate under the original supply agreement, for a total of four out of seven Flotek directors).
