provide both frac water heating and hot oiler services across multiple geographies and basins. What sets Adler apart from the competition is
the experience and professionalism of its operators in the field, its best in class equipment and its high caliber management team. I am
pleased that Spell and our entire investor group recognize these strengths and support our strategic vision for the Company.”
