PART II — RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)

If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)


☐      (a)   The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
  (b)   The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-CEN or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
  (c)   The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.


State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Superior Energy Services, Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to file, without unreasonable effort or expense, its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”). As reported in the Company’s Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on February 3, 2021, on January 19, 2021, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order, Docket No. 289, confirming and approving the Joint Prepackaged Plan of Reorganization under Chapter 11 (as amended, modified or supplemented from time to time, the “Plan”) and on February 2, 2021, the conditions to effectiveness of the Plan were satisfied or waived and Legacy Superior emerged from Chapter 11.

As disclosed in a Form 12b-25 filed on May 18, 2021, the considerable time and resources management has devoted to the Chapter 11 Cases, the related restructuring under the Plan, and the implementation of fresh start accounting, the Company’s management needed more time to prepare, review and evaluate the Company’s financial statements and disclosures for its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021 (the “First Quarter Form 10-Q”). The Company continues to work to finalize fresh start accounting and, as a result, after the Company files its First Quarter Form 10-Q it will require additional time to complete the preparation of the Form 10-Q.

Additionally, the Company reported in a Form 8-K filed on July 27, 2021 that a material weakness had been identified related to the design of the Company’s control to engage appropriate specialists to assist in evaluating the income tax consequences of complex non-routine transactions. Management expects this matter to remain unremediated at the filing date of the Form 10-Q.

The Company is working diligently to file the Form 10-Q, but cannot guarantee the exact date on which it will be filed. The Company plans to file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable following the completion and filing of the First Quarter Form 10-Q.



(1)          Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification
    Blaine D. Edwards                      (713)                      654-2200
    (Name)     (Area Code)     (Telephone Number)
(2)     Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed ? If answer is no, identify report(s).    Yes  ☐    No  ☒
(3)     Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?    Yes  ☒    No  ☐
    If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

Due to the delay in finalizing certain financial and other related data in the Form 10-Q, the Company’s results of operations for the period ended June 30, 2021 have not been finalized. As a result, the Company is currently unable to provide a reasonable estimate of certain of the results or the anticipated changes from prior period results. However, the Company currently estimates that:



Revenue for the three-month period ended June 30, 2021 is estimated to be approximately $211.0 million, an increase of approximately $27.1 million, or 14.8%, as compared to the three-month period ended June 30, 2020. However, due to the previously announced sale of Complete Energy Services, Inc., a subsidiary of the Company and part of the Company’s U.S. Land region, in early third quarter 2021, the Company will be reclassifying certain operations to Discontinued Operations as part of the second quarter 2021 financial statements. Total revenue to be reclassified to Discontinued Operations in the second quarter 2021 will be approximately $45.1 million.



As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of approximately $285.9 million; and as of July 9, 2021, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash of approximately $311.0 million

The foregoing is based on the Company’s current expectations and assumptions as of the date of this filing and involves a number of risks and uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ from these preliminary estimates, potentially materially. The risks include, but are not limited to, unexpected changes arising during the ongoing quarterly review procedures. The Company’s results of operations for the fiscal period ended June 30, 2021 will not be comparable to the corresponding prior year due to the implementation of the Plan and the application of fresh start accounting.

The Company’s actual results may differ materially from these estimates due to the completion of financial closing procedures, final adjustments and other developments that may arise between now and when the financial results for the Company’s first and second quarters of 2021 are finalized. Estimates of results are inherently uncertain and subject to change, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update this information. In addition, the preliminary results for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and as of June 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of future performance of any other period. See “Forward-Looking Statements.”
