Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On July 9, 2021, Superior Energy Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Seller”), entered into a Securities Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with SES Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Buyer”), Select Energy Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Parent”) (solely to the extent stated therein), and Complete Energy Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) (solely to the extent stated therein). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Buyer acquired certain of the Seller’s onshore oilfield services operations in the United States (the “Business”) through the acquisition of 100% of the equity interests of the Company, for a purchase price of approximately $14.0 million in cash and the issuance of 3.6 million shares of Class A common stock, $0.01 par value, of the Parent, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. The Purchase Agreement also contains certain registration rights of the Seller which requires the Parent to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the resale of the Class A common stock issued to the Seller. The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants.

The above description of the Purchase Agreement has been included to provide investors with information regarding the terms of the Purchase Agreement. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Seller, the Company, the Business or their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement were made only for purposes of that agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the parties in connection with negotiating the terms of the Purchase Agreement, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made by each party to the other for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between them that differ from those applicable to investors. In addition, certain representations and warranties may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality different from those generally applicable to investors and may have been used for the purpose of allocating risk between the parties rather than establishing matters as facts. Information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures by the Seller. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any description thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Seller, the Business or any of their respective subsidiaries, affiliates or businesses.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
