Dale Redman, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “ProPetro’s success in
the first quarter is yet another example of our differentiated,
customer-centric and performance driven business model. We remain
extremely proud of our best-in-class team and the consistent results
they produce. I’m also proud to report that we’ve integrated
approximately 500 employees from our Pioneer transaction and that they
are already adding significant value as members of the ProPetro team.
Our team continues to support some of the most effective and efficient
operators in the upstream space, and we will remain closely focused on
their needs as we execute plans for an exciting 2019.”

First Quarter 2019 Financial Summary

Revenue for the first quarter of 2019 was $546.2 million, an increase of
28% as compared to revenue of $425.4 million for the fourth quarter of
2018. The increase was primarily attributable to the acquisition of
510,000 Hydraulic Horsepower (“HHP”) on December 31, 2018. During the
first quarter of 2019, 97.4% of total revenue was associated with
pressure pumping services, compared to 97.8% in the fourth quarter.

Costs of services excluding depreciation and amortization for the first
quarter of 2019 increased to $381.5 million from $300.4 million during
the fourth quarter of 2018 primarily due to increased active fleet size
and activity levels. As a percentage of pressure pumping segment
revenues, pressure pumping costs of services decreased to 69.7% from
70.3% in the fourth quarter of 2018.

General and administrative expense was $18.5 million as compared to
$15.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily
attributable to overhead in connection with the added capacity from our
transaction with Pioneer Natural Resources (“Pioneer”). General and
administrative expense, exclusive of stock-based compensation, deferred
IPO bonus and retention expense, was $14.4 million, or 2.6% of revenue,
for the first quarter of 2019.

Net income for the first quarter of 2019 totaled $69.8 million, or $0.67
per diluted share, versus $51.8 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, for
the fourth quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA increased approximately 34% to $150.3 million for the
first quarter of 2019 from $112.4 million in the previous quarter.
Adjusted EBITDA margin for the first quarter of 2019 was 27.5%, as
compared to 26.4% for the fourth quarter of 2018.

Operational Highlights and Fleet Expansion

As previously announced, ProPetro expanded its fracturing capacity by
510,000 HHP, representing 8 fleets and related pump down equipment,
through its transaction with Pioneer. This transaction increased the
Company’s total capacity to 1,415,000 HHP. Effective utilization of the
Company’s fracturing assets during the first quarter of 2019 was 27.0
fleets. ProPetro expects effective utilization in the second quarter of
2019 to be approximately 26.0 fleets.

The Company also plans to build and deploy two electrically powered DuraStim
(for further information, see “The DuraStim Difference” section
later in this release) fleets by the end of 2019. Each of these fleets
consists of 36,000 HHP and related power equipment. Both of these fleets
will be deployed to existing customers under dedicated agreements.

During the quarter the Company also expanded its cementing operation by
deploying one additional unit, bringing total current cementing capacity
to 21 units. Also, as previously announced, ProPetro plans to
organically expand its cementing operation by 3 additional units this
year as well as organically expand its coil tubing capacity by 1
additional unit.

Liquidity and Capital Spending

As of March 31, 2019, total cash was $79.5 million and total debt was
$160.0 million. Total liquidity at the end of the first quarter of 2019
was $156.1 million, including cash and $76.6 million of available
capacity under the Company’s $300 million revolving credit facility.

Capital expenditures incurred during the first quarter of 2019 were
$86.1 million. This reflects spending on ProPetro’s growth initiatives
as well as maintenance capital.

Outlook

Mr. Redman concluded, “We remain confident in our ability to produce
consistent results driven by our high performing workforce and close
partnerships with a blue-chip customer base. The Permian Basin is the
premier resource play in North America, and we expect it will remain so
for decades to come. We believe we are uniquely positioned for
outperformance through 2019 and beyond.”

The DuraStim Difference

Designed by AFGlobal Corporation’s (“AFGlobal”) Pressure Pumping
Technologies group, the DuraStim frac pump, at 6,000 HHP,
offers the equivalent of three times the effective horsepower of a
conventional frac unit, while operating at approximately 10% of the
cyclic rate. Upon deployment, we expect the DuraStim pump
will offer many advantages, including a substantial reduction in fleet
footprint and manpower, while dramatically extending equipment life and
reducing maintenance costs. This novel system, when coupled with an
electric drive, is also expected to deliver a significant reduction in
fuel consumption and emissions.

Curtis Samford, AFGlobal CEO, commented, “The AFGlobal team is excited
to take the next step in the commercialization of our DuraStim
pump with ProPetro. ProPetro and AFGlobal have a long history of
collaboration that will prove to be very helpful as we deploy the first
full DuraStim fleets.”

Dale Redman commented, “Due to the success of DuraStim’s initial
field trial alongside one of our conventional fleets in late 2018, we
are proud to continue our strong relationship with AFGlobal by assisting
them in the commercialization of the first 2 full fleets of DuraStim
pumps.”

Adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure presented in accordance
with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial
measure provides useful information to investors in assessing our
financial condition and results of operations. Net income is the GAAP
measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP financial
measures should not be considered as alternatives to the most directly
comparable GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP financial measures have
important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but
not all, items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP financial
measures. You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a
substitute for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
Because Adjusted EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies in
our industry, our definitions of this non-GAAP financial measure may not
be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby
diminishing their utility.
