Mike good on a first, Hey, to everybody. where before. spot much just you're in you Mike, guess, the were morning, better than I congrats transition.

to fleet. really not In was -- and math, of get of on EBITDA is but you I of question kind math math better. here per you profit first Mike's said my million do over million So $XX gross noted hit me double-digit range my $XX anymore you to for and October September, the

urban blame two So Robert, And two October's I Number is it number the education. guess questions. that my of kind right?

Michael Sabella

the the visibility we and we to for Thanks trying in made we we space. bit. the look in Thanksgiving little we from and History remarks right of our tell sure I'd the than all that holidays you the September got Chase. better But wanted rate Look, question, customers. we make October the say like and at you a say, prepared our prepare QX, called would yet -- bank now unexpected that have is on rate that run November, achieve we on and really activity got that to that indications for out is of don't were when solid excellent much the a run track. still I was some that that Christmas we October all breaks because are bit creates better in going pretty But in white

and to though, some to around a spend are there able time we holidays. the to line in I we behoove think fleets loaded in lot the with that slowdown react to to in ready, the getting a bottom where it be mostly front versus here contract But being would slight we us be QX, of with while COVID. is XXX expectations have associated occurred miss and quarter did now. August COVID when or QX, we And some people of end was tracing impacted had by

but we much. So, I line, QX But approaching where right to don't only we're XXXX. into negative going emphasize too not want as as the now are into we bottom we go like that

Chase Mulvehill

been Okay, It that's after really helpful. people. around more is we've of pricing. My what bit heard a weeks kind a other question from of Obviously, you others. couple reported we've positive than little hearing follow-up from sounds some

kind all? to net the that those at on side? you're on conversations speak you color of pricing around get more last add -- And some maybe X just around and pricing to the if take in uplift could especially XQ pricing, And color back to know a don't putting you for fleets XQ I pricing of moment some or maybe kind see the starting few weeks. over maybe Tier started increases? accommodated maybe So Have are

Robert Drummond

supportive have. for you're realizing I the can out more I macro the and when every we get, think Chase, information the think we the the is pass, day smarter we that later right more by is one XXs. go thing pointing have the But in longer that is time oil sure we everybody

on bit accurate like our typically occurs bit that like. pricing an So thing up XXXX that to with. we net integrated the have worried and the we think, target, have service the are want a we digit through in and predicting at customers end consistent looks to more will And a gains say get loading customers do that and to engaging who fast about as pretty having XXXX able really in that how double as a at be not that than say, expecting about means well on the we've company earlier focusing our I'm customers, up I focused fleets like-minded is inflation been But would to we moving in I work fleets XXXX. which that's be for inflation fleets. determined one gaining year. model they now built I the efficiency are do -- and they're they I be for little got the a net around of some mean, we're percentage think pricing we hooking aspect be gas-powered what will of with to But estimations how going access

the perhaps more some fleet many but into of And in is So, are efficient even choosing the that demand in some cases, We've modeling. it's ask of fleets around pricing the individual base, I I each you And conventional driven right past work pumps in market the these been Simulfrac. been highly company. customer works more XXX think lately. you bit is think of there's crews fleet, by U.S. perhaps than And macro and important, land using supply when diesel the how more or and and for think, working out doing frac in frac, that fracking. on for about today of of a it's per the the very

the And question Gengaro from with Stifel. you. Thank next comes Stephen

Stephen Gengaro

Good Thanks. morning, gentlemen.

Robert Drummond

morning, Good Stephen.

Stephen Gengaro

Two from on utilization gets follow-up fleets questions. you or seeing general narrow Chase's are traditional And the that me. higher? between you widening the things far the as diesel? as What are differential One, as seeing to in gas-powered and price

Robert Drummond

to not absolutes I'm didn't be But definitely say because ask wouldn't glad I it's would I for narrowing. say able it. that you me probably

you more either do they that more of asking electric when or gas-powered, dual and to form are once think responding the for tenders in perform. in fuel I and inquiries

the I it's concert it mentioned think question allows with already with diesel, Chase's broadening. differentiated. don't the pretty that been But us I moving giantly of to move as that. I So It's which it's gas-powered base, in up do believe part around

Kenneth Pucheu

because I'll fuel would with that diesel Permian, Stephen, I has prices. considerably fuel landed up gas. fleets gone And with the strong is this proposition is part cost DGB, value diesel add even the that today, natural with the the proposition especially -- is gas actually add the of of the displacing very savings in by Kenny. natural the of value that cost to just

So is dual value today with fuel. the still very proposition strong

Stephen Gengaro

the and just just And even be cetera? value be that, think do customers inflating think around wanting as there's because of because truly because are proposition could that it cost? the Kenny, of i.e., you to pull some Or a DGB increased our you reasons desire, follow-up of may et diesel that economics diesel, the environmental better that with even do any

Robert Drummond

And question. put say, good a on per you That's me submission. would I XX-XX Thanks. a economics if

Stephen Gengaro

Would rates talked the for point. some was Okay. And was the on your $XXX based respond of EBITDA run and my question given kind to of about, -- number you're going a the that? million reasonable seems comment we remarks XXXX, think I you real before mean kind then when starting be Chase's on pricing to seeing, prepared questions, year be when to of follow-up you you've that how you about given

Robert Drummond

on kind plus the when I certainly Look, that sprinkle I to accurate. run is to out guided and begins say, there. XXXX rate of you -- to a we've you pricing think guided that's look it as net couple fleets that think you that do and of consensus close math pretty about a And would October that we've in

Stephen Gengaro

Great. guys. Thank you,

Robert Drummond

Stephen. you, Thank
