Dec 14,2023

HOUSTON, Dec. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NCS Multistage Holdings, Inc. (“NCS,” “Company,” “we” or “us”) (NASDAQ:NCSM) announced that our subsidiary has settled outstanding litigation with Boyd & McWilliams. Under the settlement agreement, that was executed on the preceding day, the insurance carrier will pay all agreed-upon settlement amounts to the plaintiff, resulting in no cash payments by NCS. As of September 30, 2023, we had accrued a provision for litigation of $40.8 million associated with this matter. We expect to fully offset this provision during the fourth quarter of 2023 with a benefit from the settlement. In addition, we do not currently have any outstanding litigation related to property damage claims, as we previously settled the litigation in Wyoming in August 2023, with such settlement also fully paid by the insurance carrier.

For a further description of these settled litigation matters, please refer to the ‘Texas Matter’ and ‘Wyoming Matter’ in “Note 9. Commitments and Contingencies” to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in our recent filing on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023.
