U.S. Silica Announces Additional Cost Reduction Actions

March 24, 2020

KATY, Texas, March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SLCA) today announced annualized SG&A cost reductions of approximately $20 million in response to the recent drop in oil prices and the expected decline in drilling and completion activity in North American shale over the coming quarters.

Additionally, the Company plans to idle its Sparta, Wisconsin facility, taking 1.5 million tons of Oil & Gas proppant capacity offline. The Company will continue to closely monitor industry proppant demand to align costs with market conditions.

"The headwinds created by recent OPEC actions led to the difficult decisions we are announcing today,'' saidBryan Shinn, chief executive officer. ''These strategic actions, supported by the more consistent earnings and cash flows of our Industrial & Specialty Products segment, will helpU.S. Silica remain the industry leader and continue to provide our customers outstanding products and services." he added.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws - that is, statements about the future, not about past events. Such statements often contain words such as "expect," "may," "believe," "plan," "estimate," "intend," "anticipate," "should," "could," "will," "see," "likely," and other similar words. Forward-looking statements made include any statement that does not directly relate to any historical or current fact and may include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company's expected annual SG&A savings, ability to reduce costs or idle plants, and the commercial silica industry. Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions, which may not prove to be accurate. These statements are not guarantees and are subject to risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially and adversely from these forward-looking statements. Among these factors are global economic conditions; the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on markets the Company serves; fluctuations in demand for commercial silica, diatomaceous earth, perlite, clay and cellulose; fluctuations in demand for frac sand or the development of either effective alternative proppants or new processes to replace hydraulic fracturing; the entry of competitors into our marketplace; changes in production spending by companies in the oil and gas industry and changes in the level of oil and natural gas exploration and development; general economic, political and business conditions in key regions of the world; pricing pressure; changes in government regulations and regulatory requirements, including those related to mining, explosives, chemicals, and oil and gas production; and other risks and uncertainties detailed in this press release and our most recent Forms 10-K,10-Q, and 8-K filed with or furnished to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties materialize (or the consequences of such a development changes), or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual outcomes may vary materially from those reflected in our forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, and the Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update publicly or revise such statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
