C&J Energy Services to acquire O-Tex Holdings, Inc.


HOUSTON -- C&J Energy Services, Inc., has announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire O-Tex Holdings, Inc. and its operating subsidiaries, including O-Tex Pumping, LLC (O-Tex). O-Tex is majority owned by White Deer Energy L.P. Founded in 2007, O-Tex is the fourth largest provider of oilfield cementing services in the U.S. based on internal data and industry sources. This combination will significantly expand C&J's cementing business with enhanced capabilities and strengthen the Company's position as a leading oilfield services provider with a best-in-class well construction, intervention and completions platform.

Under the terms of the agreement, C&J will acquire all of the outstanding equity interests of O-Tex in a cash and stock transaction, with consideration comprised of $132.5 million in cash, subject to certain customary purchase price adjustments, and approximately 4.42 million shares of C&J's common stock.  The cash component will be funded with cash on hand. The acquisition is expected to be completed by the end of 2017, subject to standard regulatory approvals, including termination or expiration of applicable waiting periods under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, and satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

O-Tex specializes in both primary and secondary downhole specialty cementing services in most major U.S. shale plays. O-Tex is now the second largest provider of cementing services in West Texas based on internal data and recently opened its newest facility in Pecos, Texas to meet growing customer demand in the Delaware basin. Additionally, through both acquisitions and organic growth, O-Tex has established a sizable presence in the Mid-Continent, the Rocky Mountains and the Northeast. With eight field offices, eight lab facilities and one of the youngest fleets in the industry, O-Tex maintains a diversified customer base consisting mostly of large independent exploration and production operators, which will both complement and expand C&J's existing customer base.
