Refer to Supplemental Information in this release for GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations.

Robert Workman, President and CEO of NOW Inc., remarked, “Solid gross margin gains and tightly managed expenses produced exceptionally strong incrementals of 35% in the quarter. Our ability to capitalize in a recovering market, with a focus on more lucrative transactions, while right-sizing our business, drove meaningful impacts to profitability. Moreover, even though DUCs continued to climb, as service providers worked to refurbish and staff frac fleets, our upstream operations in the U.S. performed better than expected, as did our Canadian business despite a seasonal pull-back. In the second half of 2017, we expect to reach positive EBITDA, and possibly EPS, excluding other costs, if market conditions and product margins hold.”

Prior to the earnings conference call a presentation titled “NOW Inc., Second Quarter 2017 Review & Key Takeaways” will be available on the Company’s Investor Relations website.

(1) In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we disclose various non-GAAP financial measures in our quarterly earnings press releases and other public disclosures. The non-GAAP financial measures include: (i) earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) excluding other costs, (ii) net loss excluding other costs and (iii) diluted loss per share excluding other costs. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain other costs and therefore has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure is included in the schedules herein.
(2) Other costs primarily includes the transaction costs associated with acquisition activity, including the cost of inventory that was stepped up to fair value during purchase accounting and severance expenses which are included in operating loss.
(3) EBITDA % excluding other costs is defined as EBITDA excluding other costs divided by Revenue.
(4) Other costs, net of tax, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 includes an expense of $6 million and $13 million, respectively, after tax, for a valuation allowance recorded against the Company’s deferred tax assets; as well as, less than $1 million and less than $1 million, respectively, after tax, in severance expenses that are included in operating loss.
(5) Totals may not foot due to rounding.
