Item 2.02    Results of Operations and Financial Condition.  

On August 6, 2020, Basic Energy Services, Inc. (“Basic”) posted an earnings release presentation on the News & Media page of its website, www.basices.com/news-media, reporting financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020. A copy of the earnings release presentation is being furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
Basic’s earnings release presentation contains non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Basic has provided within the earnings release presentation quantitative reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
The information furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 and Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is not subject to the liabilities of that section and is not deemed incorporated by reference in any filing of Basic under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, unless specifically identified therein as being incorporated therein by reference.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Many of the statements included or incorporated in this Current Report on Form 8-K and the furnished exhibit constitute “forward-looking statements.” In particular, they include statements relating to future actions, strategies, future operating and financial performance, and Basic’s future financial results. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and projections about future events. Readers are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future operating and financial performance or results and involve substantial risks and uncertainties that cannot be predicted or quantified, and, consequently, the actual performance of Basic may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, factors described from time to time in Basic’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (including the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” contained therein).
