Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
(Unaudited)

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation
Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (the “Company,” "FET," “we,” “our,” or “us”), a Delaware corporation, is a global company serving the oil, natural gas, industrial and renewable energy industries. FET provides value added solutions that increase the safety and efficiency of energy exploration and production. We are an environmentally and socially responsible company headquartered in Houston, Texas with manufacturing, distribution and service facilities strategically located throughout the world.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior year amounts to conform with the current year presentation.
In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair statement of the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows have been included. Operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021 or any other interim period.
These interim financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for complete consolidated financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, which are included in the Company’s 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 2, 2021.
COVID-19 Impacts
The outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020 caused significant disruptions in the U.S. and world economies which led to significant reductions in demand for crude oil. During the first nine months of 2021, distribution of vaccines resulted in reopening of certain economies and increasing demand for oil and natural gas. However, ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks and related work restrictions continue to contribute to disruptions in global supply chains which have led to inflationary pressures for certain goods and services. We anticipate that our liquidity, financial condition and future results of operations will continue to be impacted by ongoing developments from the COVID-19 pandemic.
2. Recent Accounting Pronouncements
From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), which we adopt as of the specified effective date. Unless otherwise discussed, management believes that the impact of recently issued standards, which are not yet effective, will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements upon adoption.
Accounting Standards Adopted in 2021
Income Tax. In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12 Income Taxes (Topic 740) - Disclosure Framework - Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which simplified the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles of Topic 740 and clarifying and amending existing guidance. We adopted this new standard as of January 1, 2021. The adoption of this new standard did not have a material impact on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
Accounting Standards Issued But Not Yet Adopted
Convertible Debt. In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06 Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity's Own Equity. This update reduces the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments resulting in fewer embedded conversion features being separately recognized from the host contract as compared with current GAAP. Convertible instruments that continue to be subject to separation models are (1) those with embedded conversion features that are not clearly and closely related to the host contract, that meet the definition of a derivative, and that do not qualify for a scope exception from derivative accounting and (2) convertible debt instruments issued with substantial premiums for which the premiums are recorded as paid-in-capital. In addition, this update also makes targeted changes to the disclosures for convertible instruments and earnings-per-share guidance. This guidance may be adopted through either a modified retrospective or fully retrospective method

(Unaudited)
of transition. This guidance will be effective for us in the first quarter of 2022. We are currently evaluating the impact of this new guidance. However, we currently expect that the adoption of this guidance will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
3. Revenue
Revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to our customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods or services. For a detailed discussion of our revenue recognition policies, refer to the Company’s 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Disaggregated Revenue
Refer to Note 11 Business Segments for disaggregated revenue by product line and geography.
Contract Balances
Contract balances are determined on a contract by contract basis. Contract assets represent revenue recognized for goods and services provided to our customers when payment is conditioned on something other than the passage of time. Similarly, we record a contract liability when we receive consideration, or such consideration is unconditionally due, from a customer prior to transferring goods or services to the customer under the terms of a sales contract. Such contract liabilities typically result from billings in excess of costs incurred on construction contracts and advance payments received on product sales.
The following table reflects the changes in our contract assets and contract liabilities balances for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 (in thousands):
September 30, 2021December 31, 2020Increase
$%
Accrued revenue$2,041 $1,687 
Costs and estimated profits in excess of billings11,868 8,516 
Contract assets$13,909 $10,203 $3,706 36 %
Deferred revenue$8,270 $7,863 
Billings in excess of costs and profits recognized5,450 1,817 
Contract liabilities$13,720 $9,680 $4,040 42 %
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, our contract assets increased by $3.7 million due to increasing project activity for process oil treatment equipment in our Production Equipment product line and our contract liabilities increased by $4.0 million primarily due to higher customer advance payments for projects in our Subsea product line.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we recognized $7.4 million of revenue that was included in the contract liability balance at the beginning of the period.
As all of our contracts are less than one year in duration, we have elected to apply the practical expedient which allows an entity to exclude disclosures about its remaining performance obligations if the performance obligation is part of a contract that has an original expected duration of one year or less.
4. Dispositions
2020 Disposition of ABZ and Quadrant Valves
On December 31, 2020, we sold certain assets of our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands for cash consideration of $104.6 million. This transaction was accounted for as a disposition of a business. We recognized a gain on disposition of $88.4 million based on the difference in cash received less $14.9 million of net book value of assets sold and $1.3 million of cash paid in the second quarter 2021 for the net working capital settlement related to this disposition. Pro forma results of operations for this disposition have not been presented because the effects were not material to the consolidated financial statements.

7. Impairments of Long-Lived Assets
Long-lived assets with definite lives are tested for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, there were no impairments of long-lived assets.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic and associated preventative actions taken around the world to mitigate its spread caused oil demand to deteriorate and economic activity to decrease. As a result, oil prices declined significantly during the period and created an extremely challenging market for all sub-sectors of the oil and natural gas industry. In addition, responses to the spread of COVID-19, including significant government restrictions on movement, resulted in sharp declines in global economic activity.
As a result, during the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we determined that certain long-lived assets were impaired as their carrying values exceeded their fair values. The amount of the impairment charges were measured as the difference between the carrying value and the estimated fair value of the assets. The fair value was determined either through analysis of discounted future cash flows or, for certain real estate, based on a third party's sales price estimate (classified within level 3 of the fair value hierarchy).
Following is a summary of impairment charges recognized in our segments during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 (in thousands):

2025 Notes
In August 2020, we exchanged $315.5 million principal amount of our previous 6.25% unsecured notes due 2021 (“2021 Notes”) for new 9.00% convertible secured notes due August 2025 (the “2025 Notes”). This transaction was accounted for as an extinguishment of the 2021 Notes with the new 2025 Notes recorded at fair value on the transaction date. We estimated the fair value of the 2025 Notes to be $282.6 million at the issuance date, resulting in a $32.9 million discount (“Debt Discount”) at issuance. As a result, we recognized a $28.7 million gain on extinguishment of debt that reflects the difference in the $314.8 million net carrying value of the 2021 Notes exchanged, including debt issuance costs and unamortized debt premium, less the $282.6 million estimated fair value of 2025 Notes and a $3.5 million early participation fee paid to bondholders that participated in the exchange. The Debt Discount is being amortized as non-cash interest expense over the term of the 2025 Notes using the effective interest method.
The 2025 Notes pay interest at the rate of 9.00%, of which 6.25% is payable in cash and 2.75% is payable in cash or additional notes, at the Company’s option. The 2025 Notes are secured by a first lien on substantially all of the Company’s assets, except for Credit Facility priority collateral, which secures the 2025 Notes on a second lien basis. As of September 30, 2021, approximately $116.0 million principal amount of the 2025 Notes is mandatorily convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion rate of 37.0370 shares per $1,000 principal amount of 2025 Notes converted, equivalent to a conversion price of $27.00 per share, subject, however, to the condition that the average of the daily trading prices for the common stock over the preceding 20-trading day period is at least $30.00 per share. Holders of the 2025 Notes also have optional conversion rights in the event that the Company elects to redeem the 2025 Notes in cash and at the final maturity of the new notes. Any interest that the Company elects to pay in additional notes is also subject to the mandatory and optional conversion rights.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we repurchased an aggregate $59.9 million of principal amount of our 2025 Notes for $58.6 million. The net carrying value of the extinguished debt, including unamortized debt discount and debt issuance costs, was $53.3 million, resulting in a $5.3 million loss on extinguishment of debt.
Credit Facility
In September 2021, we amended our senior secured revolving credit facility ("Credit Facility") to, among other things, extend the maturity date to September 2026, reduce the aggregate amount of the commitment under the Credit Facility, and change the interest rate applicable to outstanding loans. Following such amendment, our Credit Facility provides revolving credit commitments of $179.0 million (with a sublimit of up to $45.0 million available for the issuance of letters of credit for the account of the Company and certain of its domestic subsidiaries) (the “U.S. Line”), of which up to $20.0 million is available to certain of our Canadian subsidiaries for loans in U.S. or Canadian dollars (with a sublimit of up to $3.0 million available for the issuance of letters of credit for the account of our Canadian subsidiaries) (the “Canadian Line”).
Availability under the Credit Facility is subject to a borrowing base calculated by reference to eligible accounts receivable in the U.S., Canada and certain other jurisdictions (subject to a cap) and eligible inventory in the U.S. and Canada. Such eligible accounts receivable and eligible inventory serve as priority collateral for the Credit Facility, which is also secured on a second lien basis by substantially all of the Company's other assets. The amount of eligible inventory included in the borrowing base is restricted to the lesser of $128.0 million (subject to a quarterly reduction of $0.5 million) and 80.0% of the total borrowing base. Our borrowing capacity under the Credit Facility could be reduced or eliminated, depending on future fluctuations in our receivables and inventory. As of September 30, 2021, our total borrowing base was $146.0 million, of which no amounts were drawn and $15.2 million was used for security of outstanding letters of credit, resulting in remaining availability of $130.8 million.
Borrowings under the U.S. line bear interest at a rate equal to, at our option, either (a) the LIBOR rate, subject to a floor of 0.00%, plus a margin of 2.25% to 2.75%, or (b) a base rate plus a margin of 1.25% to 1.75%, in each case based upon the Company's quarterly total net leverage ratio. The U.S. line base rate is determined by reference to the greatest of (i) the federal funds rate plus 0.50% per annum, (ii) the one-month adjusted LIBOR plus 1.00% per annum, and (iii) the rate of interest announced, from time to time, by Wells Fargo at its principal office in San Francisco as its prime rate, subject to a floor of 0.00%.
Borrowings under the Canadian Line bear interest at a rate equal to, at Forum Canada’s option, either (a) the CDOR rate, subject to a floor of 0.00%, plus a margin of 2.25% to 2.75%, or (b) a base rate plus a margin of 1.25% to 1.75%, in each case based upon the Company's quarterly net leverage ratio. The Canadian line base rate is
12

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
(Unaudited)
determined by reference to the greater of (i) the one-month CDOR rate plus 1.00% and (ii) the prime rate for Canadian dollar commercial loans made in Canada as reported by Thomson Reuters, subject to a floor of 0.00%.
The Credit Facility also provides for a commitment fee in the amount of (a) 0.375% on the unused portion of commitments if average usage of the Credit Facility is greater than 50% and (b) 0.500% on the unused portion of commitments if average usage of the Credit Facility is less than or equal to 50%.
If excess availability under the Credit Facility falls below the greater of 12.5% of the borrowing base and $22.4 million, we will be required to maintain a fixed charge coverage ratio of at least 1.00:1.00 as of the end of each fiscal quarter until excess availability under the Credit Facility exceeds such thresholds for at least 60 consecutive days. Furthermore, the Credit Facility includes an obligation to prepay outstanding loans with cash on hand in excess of certain thresholds and includes a cross-default to the 2025 Notes.
Deferred Loan Costs
We have incurred loan costs that have been deferred and are amortized to interest expense over the term of the 2025 Notes and the Credit Facility. In the first quarter of 2020, we wrote-off $1.8 million of deferred loan costs for the termination of previous discussions related to a potential exchange offer for our 2021 Notes. In connection with the September 2021 Credit Facility amendment, we deferred approximately $1.6 million of loan costs that will be amortized over the facility's remaining life.
Other Debt
Other debt consists primarily of various finance leases of equipment.
Letters of Credit and Guarantees
We execute letters of credit in the normal course of business to secure the delivery of product from specific vendors and also to guarantee our fulfillment of performance obligations relating to certain large contracts. We had $15.2 million and $15.6 million in total outstanding letters of credit as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.
9. Income Taxes
For interim periods, our income tax expense or benefit is computed based on our estimated annual effective tax rate and any discrete items that impact the interim periods. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we recorded a tax expense of $0.8 million and $3.8 million, respectively, compared to a tax expense of $1.0 million and a tax benefit of $13.8 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. The estimated annual effective tax rates for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 were impacted by losses in jurisdictions where the recording of a tax benefit is not available. Furthermore, the tax expense or benefit recorded can vary from period to period depending on the Company’s relative mix of earnings and losses by jurisdiction.
The tax benefit for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 includes a $16.6 million benefit related to a carryback claim for U.S. federal tax losses based on provisions in the U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), which was signed into law on March 27, 2020. The CARES Act provided relief to corporate taxpayers by permitting a five-year carryback of 2018-2020 net operating losses (“NOLs”), increased the 30% limitation on interest expense deductibility to 50% of adjusted taxable income for 2019 and 2020, and accelerated refunds for minimum tax credit carryforwards, among other provisions. The tax effects of changes in tax laws are recognized in the period in which the law is enacted.
We have deferred tax assets related to net operating loss and other tax carryforwards in the U.S. and in certain states and foreign jurisdictions. We recognize deferred tax assets to the extent that we believe these assets are more likely than not to be realized. In making such a determination, we consider all available positive and negative evidence, including future reversals of existing taxable temporary differences, projected future taxable income, tax-planning and recent operating results. As of September 30, 2021, we do not anticipate being able to fully utilize all of the losses prior to their expiration in the following jurisdictions: the U.S., the U.K., Germany, Singapore, China and Saudi Arabia. As a result, we have certain valuation allowances against our deferred tax assets as of September 30, 2021.

10. Fair Value Measurements
The Company had zero and $13.1 million of borrowings outstanding under the Credit Facility as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The Credit Facility incurs interest at a variable interest rate, and therefore, the carrying amount approximates fair value. The fair value of the debt is classified as a Level 2 measurement because interest rates charged are similar to other financial instruments with similar terms and maturities.
The fair value of our 2025 Notes is estimated using Level 2 inputs in the fair value hierarchy and is based on quoted prices for those or similar instruments. At September 30, 2021, the fair value and the carrying value of our 2025 Notes approximated $240.7 million and $230.7 million, respectively. At December 31, 2020, the fair value and the carrying value of our 2025 Notes approximated $200.3 million and $279.3 million, respectively.
There were no other outstanding financial assets as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 that required measuring the amounts at fair value. We did not change our valuation techniques associated with recurring fair value measurements from prior periods, and there were no transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy during the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

12. Commitments and Contingencies
In the ordinary course of business, the Company is, and in the future could be, involved in various pending or threatened legal actions, some of which may or may not be covered by insurance. Management reviewed such pending judicial and legal proceedings, the reasonably anticipated costs and expenses in connection with such proceedings, and the availability and limits of insurance coverage, and has established reserves that are believed to be appropriate in light of those outcomes that are believed to be probable and can be estimated. The reserves accrued at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively, are immaterial. In the opinion of management, the Company’s ultimate liability, if any, with respect to these actions is not expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

(Unaudited)
The effective time of the Reverse Stock Split was after market close on November 9, 2020, with the common stock trading on a post-split basis under the Company’s existing trading symbol, “FET,” at the market open on November 10, 2020. No fractional shares of common stock were issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, any stockholder who would have been entitled to a fractional share received a cash payment in lieu of such fractional shares.
Following the completion of the Reverse Stock Split, the number of authorized shares of common stock was reduced from 296,000,000 to 14,800,000. Unless otherwise indicated, the number of shares of common stock outstanding and per-share amounts in these consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the effect of the Reverse Stock Split. The par value of our common stock remains at $0.01 per share.
15. Related Party Transactions

Overview
We are a global company serving the oil, natural gas, industrial and renewable energy industries. FET provides value added solutions that increase the safety and efficiency of energy exploration and production. We are an environmentally and socially responsible company headquartered in Houston, Texas with manufacturing, distribution and service facilities strategically located throughout the world. Our products include highly engineered capital equipment as well as consumable products. These consumable products are used in drilling, well construction and completions activities, within the supporting infrastructure, and at processing centers and refineries. Our engineered capital products are directed at drilling rig equipment for new rigs, upgrades and refurbishment projects, subsea construction and development projects, pressure pumping equipment, the placement of production equipment on new producing wells, downstream capital projects and capital equipment for renewable energy projects. Our products are aimed at improving the safety, efficiency, and environmental and social impact of our customers' operations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, approximately 80% of our revenue was derived from
17


consumable products and activity-based equipment, while the balance was primarily derived from capital products with a small amount from rental and other services.
We design, manufacture and supply high quality reliable products that create value for our diverse customer base, which includes, among others, oil and natural gas operators, land and offshore drilling contractors, oilfield service companies, subsea construction and service companies, and pipeline and refinery operators. In addition, we offer some of our products to renewable energy and new energy companies.
We believe that the world's long-term energy demand will continue to rise. We also expect hydrocarbons to continue to play a vital role in meeting the world's long-term energy demands while sources of renewable energy continue to develop. As such, we remain focused on serving our customers in both oil and natural gas as well as renewable energy applications. We are also continuing to develop products to help oil and gas operators lower their current emissions while also deploying our existing product technologies in renewable energy applications.
A summary of the products and services offered by each segment is as follows:
Drilling & Downhole. This segment designs, manufactures and supplies products and provides related services to the drilling, well construction, artificial lift and subsea energy construction markets, including applications in oil and natural gas, renewable energy, defense, and communications. The products and related services consist primarily of: (i) capital equipment and a broad line of expendable products consumed in the drilling process; (ii) well construction casing and cementing equipment and protection products for artificial lift equipment and cables; and (iii) subsea remotely operated vehicles and trenchers, submarine rescue vehicles, specialty components and tooling, and complementary subsea technical services.
Completions. This segment designs, manufactures and supplies products and provides related services to the coiled tubing, well stimulation and intervention markets. The products and related services consist primarily of: (i) capital and consumable products sold to the pressure pumping, hydraulic fracturing and flowback services markets, including hydraulic fracturing pumps, cooling systems, high-pressure flexible hoses and flow iron as well as wireline cable and pressure control equipment used in the well completion and intervention service markets; and (ii) coiled tubing strings and coiled line pipe and related services.
Production. This segment designs, manufactures and supplies products and provides related equipment and services for production and infrastructure markets. The products and related services consist primarily of: (i) engineered process systems, production equipment, as well as specialty separation equipment; and (ii) a wide range of industrial valves focused on serving oil and natural gas customers as well as power generation, renewable energy and other general industrial applications.
Market Conditions
The level of demand for our products is directly related to the activity levels and the capital and operating budgets of our customers, which in turn are heavily influenced by energy prices and expectations as to future price trends. In addition, the availability of existing capital equipment adequate to serve exploration and production requirements, or lack thereof, drives demand for our capital equipment products.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic and associated actions taken around the world to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 caused unprecedented declines in economic activity, energy demand and oil and natural gas prices. In response, OPEC+ implemented significant reductions in oil production and North American exploration and production companies aggressively reduced drilling and completion activities. Although we have experienced operational inefficiencies and supply chain delays, we have not had any work stoppages at our manufacturing facilities due to COVID-19 or associated government regulations. However, in response to the decline in demand for our products during the pandemic, we implemented significant cost reduction actions, including exiting facilities, lowering headcount, reducing salaries, suspending the Company’s matching contribution to the U.S. and Canada defined contribution retirement plans, and furloughing select employee groups. Certain facility closures and headcount reduction efforts continued in the first nine months of 2021.
During the first nine months of 2021, distribution of vaccines and reopening of certain economies has resulted in increasing demand for oil and natural gas. At the same time, the supply of oil and natural gas has been impacted by ongoing constraints by OPEC+ and North American exploration and production companies. As a result of these
18


supply and demand factors, commodity prices have increased substantially in the first nine months of 2021. In addition, ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks and worldwide labor constraints continue to cause disruptions in global supply chains which have led to inflationary pressures for certain goods and services.
Our revenues are highly correlated to the U.S. drilling rig count which has increased to 521 rigs as of the end of the third quarter of 2021 from a low of 244 rigs in August 2020. Furthermore, the level of active hydraulic fracturing fleets also increased substantially in the first nine months of 2021 in order to meet increasing oil demand. Publicly owned exploration and production companies in North America remain under pressure to generate positive cash flows and constrain capital expenditures. In contrast, privately owned exploration and production companies in North America have increased their drilling and completions activity in response to the higher oil and natural gas price environment. In addition, consolidation of exploration and production and service companies has continued in 2021.
Outside of the North America market, activity levels have also increased as well as in global offshore and subsea activity. As a result, during the first nine months of 2021, we have experienced increased demand for our drilling and subsea capital equipment offerings due to an improved outlook for our international drilling customers and the diversification of our subsea product line outside of the oil and natural gas industry.
On December 31, 2020, we sold assets pertaining to our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands for total consideration of $104.6 million and recognized a gain on disposition of $88.4 million. The disposition of these brands resulted in a substantial decrease in our Valve Solutions product line’s revenue compared to the prior year.
The table below shows average crude oil and natural gas prices for West Texas Intermediate crude oil (“WTI”), United Kingdom Brent crude oil (“Brent”), and Henry Hub natural gas:

The price of oil has varied dramatically over the last two years. The spot prices for WTI and Brent fell from $61.14 and $67.77 per barrel, respectively, as of December 31, 2019 to lows below $15.00 per barrel in April 2020. Since that time, oil prices have rebounded to an average of $70.54 and $73.51 for WTI and Brent, respectively, in the third quarter 2021. In addition, natural gas prices have more than doubled when comparing the third quarter 2021 to the third quarter 2020.

Revenue
Our revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $141.0 million, an increase of $37.4 million, or 36.1%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020. For the three months ended September 30, 2021, our Drilling & Downhole, Completions, and Production segments comprised 44.8%, 35.0%, and 20.2% of our total revenue, respectively, which compared to 41.7%, 18.9%, and 39.4% of our total revenue, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The overall increase in revenue is primarily related to higher sales volumes due to improving market conditions in the third quarter 2021 compared to the third quarter 2020 which was negatively impacted by the COVID 19 pandemic, partially offset by the divestiture of our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands in the fourth quarter 2020. The changes in revenue by operating segment consisted of the following:
Drilling & Downhole segment — Revenue was $63.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $20.0 million, or 46.4%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was driven by a $10.0 million, or 81.4%, increase in revenue for our Subsea Technologies product line due to higher sales of Work Class ROVs into international markets. Revenue for our Drilling Technologies product line increased by $5.7 million, or 32.9%, primarily due to higher sales of consumable products and capital equipment into the U.S. market from the 95% year-over-year increase in the U.S. rig count. Revenue for our Downhole Technologies product line increased by $4.2 million, primarily due to higher sales volumes of artificial lift products due to the increase in the number of well completions and workover activity in the third quarter 2021 compared to 2020.
Completions segment — Revenue was $49.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $30.1 million, or 153.1%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020. This significant improvement includes revenue increases of $16.2 million and $13.9 million for our Stimulation & Intervention and Coiled Tubing product lines, respectively. These higher sales volumes were driven by increasing U.S. hydraulic fracturing and well intervention service activity levels in the third quarter 2021 compared to the third quarter 2020 when service companies were idling equipment in response to historically low levels of oil demand during the COVID 19 pandemic.
Production segment — Revenue was $28.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, a decrease of $12.4 million, or 30.3%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020. This decrease includes a $10.0 million decline related to the divestiture of our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands in the fourth quarter 2020. The remaining $2.4 million decrease was driven by a $1.2 million decline in sales volumes of our other valve brands, primarily due to lower sales into the North America downstream and midstream markets, and a $1.2 million decrease in revenue for our Production Equipment product line, primarily from lower project revenue recognized for our process oil treatment equipment.
Segment operating income (loss) and segment operating margin percentage
Segment operating loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $7.5 million, a $25.4 million improvement compared to a loss of $32.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. For the three months ended September 30, 2021, segment operating margin percentage was (5.3)% compared to (31.7)% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Segment operating margin percentage is calculated by dividing segment operating income (loss) by revenue for the period. The change in operating income (loss) for each segment is explained as follows:
Drilling & Downhole segment — Segment operating income was $4.0 million, or 6.4%, for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a loss of $13.2 million, or (30.6)%, for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The $17.2 million improvement in segment operating results is primarily attributable to higher gross profit from the 46.4% increase in segment revenues. In addition, segment operating income increased due to a $3.2 million reduction in lease impairments and a $1.8 million reduction in inventory write-downs.
Completions segment — Segment operating income was $0.3 million, or 0.5%, for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a segment operating loss of $11.9 million, or (60.6)%, for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The $12.1 million improvement in segment operating results is primarily attributable to the 153.1% increase in revenues discussed above, partially offset by higher freight, manufacturing and employee related costs associated with the increased activity levels.
Production segment — Segment operating loss was $3.4 million, or (11.9)%, for the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a loss of $0.1 million, or (0.2)%, for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The $3.3 million decline in segment operating results is primarily attributable to the disposition of our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands in the fourth quarter 2020. The decline in gross profit from lower revenues discussed above was mostly offset by reductions in employee and facility related costs due to headcount, salary and other cost reductions implemented in 2020.
22


Corporate — Selling, general and administrative expenses for Corporate were $8.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, a $0.7 million increase compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily related to higher variable compensation costs and professional fees, partially offset by a $1.5 million decrease in lease impairments. Corporate costs include, among other items, payroll related costs for management, administration, finance, legal, and human resources personnel; professional fees for legal, accounting and related services; and marketing costs.
Other items not included in segment operating loss
Several items are not included in segment operating loss, but are included in total operating loss. These items include impairments of property and equipment, and loss (gain) on the disposal of assets and other. For further information related to impairments of property and equipment, refer to Note 7 Impairments of Long-Lived Assets.
Other income and expense
Other income and expense includes interest expense, foreign exchange losses (gains) and other, loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt, and deferred loan costs written off. We incurred $7.1 million of interest expense during the three months ended September 30, 2021, a decrease of $1.3 million compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020 due to lower debt balances outstanding in the three months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the three months outstanding September 30, 2020.
The foreign exchange losses (gains) are primarily the result of movements in the British pound, Euro and Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar. These movements in exchange rates create foreign exchange gains or losses when applied to monetary assets or liabilities denominated in currencies other than the location’s functional currency, primarily U.S. dollar denominated cash, trade account receivables and net intercompany receivable balances for our entities using a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar.
During the three months ended September 30, 2021, we repurchased an aggregate $1.9 million of principal amount of our 9.00% convertible secured notes due August 2025 (“2025 Notes”) at approximately par value. The net carrying value of the extinguished debt, including unamortized debt discount and debt issuance costs, was $1.7 million, resulting in a $0.2 million loss on extinguishment of debt.
In the third quarter of 2020, we exchanged $315.5 million principal amount of our previous 6.25% unsecured notes due 2021 (“2021 Notes”) for new 2025 Notes. This transaction was accounted for as an extinguishment of the 2021 Notes with the new 2025 Notes recorded at fair value on the transaction date, resulting in a $28.7 million gain on extinguishment of debt. See Note 8 Debt for further information. Concurrent with the completion of the 2021 Notes exchange, the Credit Facility was also amended resulting in a write-off of $0.3 million of deferred loan costs.
Taxes
We recorded tax expense of $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to tax expense of $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The estimated annual effective tax rates for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 were impacted by losses in jurisdictions where the recording of a tax benefit is not available. Furthermore, the tax expense or benefit recorded can vary from period to period depending on the Company’s relative mix of earnings and losses by jurisdiction.

Revenue
Our revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $392.9 million, a decrease of $6.6 million, or 1.7%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, our Drilling & Downhole, Completions, and Production segments comprised 44.1%, 34.1%, and 21.8% of our total revenue, respectively, which compared to 41.8%, 21.9%, and 36.3% of our total revenue, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The overall decline in revenue is primarily related to a $32.5 million decrease from the divestiture of our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands in the fourth quarter 2020. This decline was mostly offset by higher sales volumes in the Drilling and Downhole and Completions segments due to improving market conditions in the first nine months of 2021 compared to the first nine months of 2020 which was negatively impacted by the COVID 19 pandemic. The changes in revenue by operating segment consisted of the following:
Drilling & Downhole segment — Revenue was $173.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $6.4 million, or 3.8%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This increase includes a $12.8 million, or 30.6%, increase in revenue for our Subsea Technologies product line primarily due to higher sales of Work Class ROVs into international markets. This increase was partially offset by a $4.7 million, or 6.4%, revenue decline for our Drilling Technologies product line primarily due to lower service revenue. Revenue for our Downhole Technologies product line decreased by $1.7 million, or 3.3%, primarily due to higher sales of artificial lift products in the first quarter 2020 prior to the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic.
Completions segment — Revenue was $134.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $46.0 million, or 52.3%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This increase includes a $26.2 million, or 61.9%, increase in sales volumes for our Stimulation and Intervention product line and a $19.8 million, or 43.3%, increase in sales volumes for our Coiled Tubing product line. These higher revenue levels were driven by increasing U.S. hydraulic fracturing and well intervention service activity levels in the first nine months of 2021 compared to a rapidly declining market in the first nine months of 2020 when service companies were idling equipment in response to historically low levels of oil demand as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic.
Production segment — Revenue was $85.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, a decrease of $59.2 million, or 40.8%, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This decrease includes a $32.5 million decline from the divestiture of our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands in the fourth quarter 2020. The remaining decline was driven by a $19.2 million decline in sales volumes of our other valve brands, primarily due to lower sales into the North America downstream and midstream markets, and a $7.6 million decrease in revenue for our Production Equipment product line from lower sales volumes of our surface production equipment, partially offset by higher sales volumes for our process oil treatment equipment due to increased project activity with international downstream customers.
Segment operating income (loss) and segment operating margin percentage
Segment operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $32.7 million, a $73.7 million improvement compared to a loss of $106.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, segment operating margin percentage was (8.3)% compared to (26.6)% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Segment operating margin percentage is calculated by dividing segment operating income (loss) by revenue for the period. The change in operating income (loss) for each segment is explained as follows:
Drilling & Downhole segment — Segment operating income was $2.2 million, or 1.3%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a loss of $26.8 million, or (16.0)%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The $29.0 million improvement in segment operating results is primarily attributable to a decrease in employee related costs due to headcount, salary and other cost reductions implemented in 2020. In addition, segment operating results also improved due to a $4.4 million decrease in impairments of operating lease right of use assets, a $3.8 million reduction in inventory write downs and lower severance and other costs related to restructuring activities in the first nine months of 2020.
Completions segment — Segment operating loss was $0.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a loss of $47.0 million, or (53.4)%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The $47.0 million improvement in segment operating results is primarily attributable to higher gross profit from the 52.3% increase in revenues discussed above. In addition, operating results improved due to a $12.3 million decrease in inventory write downs, a $6.1 million decrease in impairments of operating lease right of use assets and reductions in employee related costs due to headcount, salary and other cost reductions implemented in 2020.
25


Production segment — Segment operating loss was $11.3 million, or (13.1)%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to a loss of $9.3 million, or (6.4)%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The $2.0 million decline in segment operating results is primarily attributable to the disposition of our ABZ and Quadrant valve brands in the fourth quarter 2020. In addition, gross profit declined as a result of the lower sales volumes discussed above. These declines were mostly offset by reductions in employee related costs due to headcount, salary and other cost reductions implemented in 2020 as well as a $1.9 million decrease in impairments of operating lease right of use assets and a $1.7 million decrease in inventory write downs.
Corporate — Selling, general and administrative expenses for Corporate were $23.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, a $0.3 million increase compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily related to higher variable compensation costs and professional fees, partially offset by a $1.5 million decrease in lease impairments. Corporate costs include, among other items, payroll related costs for management, administration, finance, legal, and human resources personnel; professional fees for legal, accounting and related services; and marketing costs.
Other items not included in segment operating loss
Several items are not included in segment operating loss, but are included in total operating loss. These items include impairments of intangible assets, property and equipment and loss (gain) on disposal of assets and other. For further information related to impairments of intangible assets, property and equipment, refer to Note 7 Impairments of Long-Lived Assets.
Other expense
Other expense includes interest expense, foreign exchange gains and other, loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt and deferred loan costs written off. We incurred $24.1 million of interest expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $2.4 million from the nine months ended September 30, 2020 due to higher non-cash amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs associated with our 2025 Notes.
The foreign exchange gains are primarily the result of movements in the British pound, Euro and Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar. These movements in exchange rates create foreign exchange gains or losses when applied to monetary assets or liabilities denominated in currencies other than the location’s functional currency, primarily U.S. dollar denominated cash, trade account receivables and net intercompany receivable balances for our entities using a functional currency other than the U.S. dollar.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we repurchased an aggregate $59.9 million of principal amount of our 2025 Notes for $58.6 million. The net carrying value of the extinguished debt, including unamortized debt discount and debt issuance costs, was $53.3 million, resulting in a $5.3 million loss on extinguishment of debt.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we recognized $72.5 million of gains on extinguishment of debt, including a $43.8 million gain from the repurchase of notes and a $28.7 million gain from the exchange of notes in the third quarter of 2020 as further described below.
During the first nine months of 2020, we repurchased an aggregate $71.9 million of principal amount of our 2021 Notes for $27.6 million. The net carrying value of the extinguished debt, including unamortized debt premium and debt issuance costs, was $71.4 million, resulting in the $43.8 million gain on extinguishment of debt.
In the third quarter of 2020, we exchanged $315.5 million principal amount of 2021 Notes for new 2025 Notes. This transaction was accounted for as an extinguishment of the 2021 Notes with the new 2025 Notes recorded at fair value on the transaction date, resulting in the $28.7 million gain on extinguishment of debt.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we wrote-off $2.3 million of deferred loan costs including $2.0 million for the termination of previous discussions related to a potential exchange offer for our 2021 Notes and $0.3 million related to amending our Credit Facility.
Taxes
We recorded tax expense of $3.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a tax benefit of $13.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The estimated annual effective tax rates for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 were impacted by losses in jurisdictions where the recording of a tax benefit is not available. Furthermore, the tax expense or benefit recorded can vary from period to period depending on the Company’s relative mix of earnings and losses by jurisdiction.
The tax benefit for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 included a $16.6 million benefit related to a carryback claim for U.S. federal tax losses based on provisions in the U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic
26


Security Act (“CARES Act”), which was signed into law on March 27, 2020. The CARES Act provided relief to corporate taxpayers by permitting a five-year carryback of 2018-2020 NOLs, increased the 30% limitation on interest expense deductibility to 50% of adjusted taxable income for 2019 and 2020, and accelerated refunds for minimum tax credit carryforwards, among other provisions. The tax effects of changes in tax laws are recognized in the period in which the law is enacted.
Liquidity and capital resources
Sources and uses of liquidity
Our internal sources of liquidity are cash on hand and cash flows from operations, while our primary external sources include trade credit, the Credit Facility and the 2025 Notes. Our primary uses of capital have been for inventory, sales on credit to our customers, maintenance and growth capital expenditures, and debt repayments. We continually monitor other potential capital sources, including equity and debt financing, to meet our investment and target liquidity requirements. Our future success and growth will be highly dependent on our ability to generate positive operating cash flow and access outside sources of capital.
As of December 31, 2020, we had $316.9 million principal amount of 2025 Notes outstanding and $13.1 million outstanding under our revolving Credit Facility. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we repurchased $59.9 million principal amount of our 2025 Notes and repaid the $13.1 million outstanding under our revolving Credit Facility. Following these transactions, we had $257.0 million principal amount of 2025 Notes and no borrowings outstanding under our Credit Facility as of September 30, 2021.
In September 2021, we amended our Credit Facility to, among other things, extend the maturity date to September 2026, reduce the aggregate amount of the commitment under the Credit Facility to $179.0 million, and change the interest rate applicable to outstanding loans.
See Note 8 Debt for further details related to the terms for our 2025 Notes and Credit Facility.
As of September 30, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents of $50.0 million and $130.8 million of availability under the Credit Facility. We anticipate that our future working capital requirements for our operations will fluctuate directionally with revenues. Furthermore, availability under the Credit Facility will fluctuate directionally based on the level of our eligible accounts receivable and inventory subject to applicable sublimits. In addition, we expect total 2021 capital expenditures to be less than $5.0 million, consisting of, among other items, replacing end of life machinery and equipment.
We expect our available cash on-hand, cash generated by operations, and estimated availability under the Credit Facility to be adequate to fund current operations during the next 12 months. In addition, based on existing market conditions and our expected liquidity needs, among other factors, we may use a portion of our cash flows from operations, proceeds from divestitures, securities offerings or other eligible capital to reduce the principal amount of our 2025 Notes outstanding.
In 2020, we completed one disposition for total consideration of $103.4 million. For additional information, see Note 4 Dispositions. We may pursue acquisitions in the future, which may be funded with cash and/or equity. Our ability to make significant acquisitions for cash may require us to pursue additional equity or debt financing, which we may not be able to obtain on terms acceptable to us or at all.

Our cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 are presented below (in millions):
  Nine Months Ended September 30,

Effect of exchange rate changes on cash(0.4)(0.1)

Net cash used in operating activities was $8.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $1.7 million of cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This decline in operating cash flows is primarily attributable to changes in working capital which provided cash of $2.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to providing $31.6 million of cash for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. This decline was partially offset by an improvement in net income adjusted for non-cash items which used $10.9 million of cash for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to using $29.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Net cash provided by investing activities
Net cash provided by investing activities was $4.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 including $6.8 million of proceeds from the sale of property and equipment, partially offset by $1.3 million of cash paid for the net working capital settlement related to the disposition of our ABZ and QVA valve brands and $1.0 million of capital expenditures. Net cash provided by investing activities was $2.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 including $3.6 million of proceeds from the sale of property and equipment, partially offset by $2.2 million of capital expenditures for property and equipment.
Net cash used in financing activities
Net cash used in financing activities was $74.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 including $58.6 million of cash used to repurchase 2025 Notes and $13.1 million of repayments on the revolving Credit Facility. Net cash used in financing activities was $41.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 including $27.6 million of cash used to repurchase 2021 Notes $9.4 million paid for deferred financing costs and a $3.5 million early participation payment for the bond exchange.
Supplemental Guarantor Financial Information
The Company’s 2025 Notes are guaranteed by our domestic subsidiaries which are 100% owned, directly or indirectly, by the Company. The guarantees are full and unconditional, joint and several.
The guarantees of the 2025 Notes are (i) pari passu in right of payment with all existing and future senior indebtedness of such guarantor, including all obligations under our Credit Facility; (ii) secured by certain collateral of such guarantor, subject to permitted liens under the indenture governing the 2025 Notes; (iii) effectively senior to all unsecured indebtedness of that guarantor, to the extent of the value of the collateral securing the 2025 Notes (after giving effect to the liens securing our Credit Facility and any other senior liens on the collateral); and (v) senior in right of payment to any future subordinated indebtedness of that guarantor.
In the event of a bankruptcy, liquidation or reorganization of any of the non-guarantor subsidiaries of the 2025 Notes, the non-guarantor subsidiaries of such notes will pay the holders of their debt and their trade creditors before they will be able to distribute any of their assets to the Company or to any guarantors.
The 2025 Notes guarantees shall each be released upon (i) any sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of such guarantor (by merger, consolidation or otherwise) to a person that is not (either before or after giving effect to such transaction) the Company or a subsidiary, if the sale or other disposition does not violate the applicable provisions of the indenture governing such notes; (ii) any sale, exchange or transfer (by merger, consolidation or otherwise) of the equity interests of such guarantor after which the applicable guarantor is no longer a subsidiary, which sale, exchange or transfer does not violate the applicable provisions of the indenture governing such notes; (iii) legal or covenant defeasance or satisfaction and discharge of the indenture governing such notes; or (iv) dissolution of such guarantor, provided no default or event of default has occurred that is continuing.
28


The obligations of each guarantor of the 2025 Notes under its guarantee will be limited to the maximum amount as will, after giving effect to all other contingent and fixed liabilities of such guarantor (including, without limitation, any guarantees under the Credit Facility) and any collections from or payments made by or on behalf of any other guarantor in respect of the obligations of such other guarantor under its guarantee or pursuant to its contribution obligations under the applicable indenture, result in the obligations of such guarantor under its guarantee not constituting a fraudulent conveyance, fraudulent preference or fraudulent transfer or otherwise reviewable transaction under applicable law. Nonetheless, in the event of the bankruptcy, insolvency or financial difficulty of a guarantor, such guarantor’s obligations under its guarantee may be subject to review and avoidance under applicable fraudulent conveyance, fraudulent preference, fraudulent transfer and insolvency laws.
We are presenting the following summarized financial information for the Company and the subsidiary guarantors (collectively referred to as the "Obligated Group") pursuant to Rule 13-01 of Regulation S-X, Guarantors and Issuers of Guaranteed Securities Registered or Being Registered. For purposes of the following summarized financial information, transactions between the Company and the subsidiary guarantors, presented on a combined basis, have been eliminated and information for the non-guarantor subsidiaries have been excluded.
