Management Commentary

"Our fourth quarter activity levels improved sequentially for the first time since 2016, consistent with several key oilfield metrics," stated Richard A. Hubbell, RPC's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The holiday slowdown this year was less pronounced as customers emphasized completing drilled but uncompleted wells before the end of the year.

"As 2021 begins, we have greater visibility into near term activity levels than in the recent past and expect activity levels to continue to improve as the year progresses. Yet, we remain cautious with respect to capital expenditures until financial returns improve. Our operating plans for 2021 include low capital spending, continued expense management, and improved profitability. We finished the year with $84.5 million in cash, an increase of $34.5 million compared to $50.0 million at the end of the prior year," concluded Hubbell.
