CALGARY, Alberta, May 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DIVERGENT Energy Services Corp. (“Divergent”, the "Company", or “DVG) announces the release of its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2020.


  • Revenues of $1,764 which were consistent with Q1 2019.
  • Revenues from oil producing clients increased 52% over Q1 2019 as the Company continues to execute on diversifying its client base outside of coalbed methane producers.
  • Changes to the Board of Directors included the addition of Geoff Bury, the appointment of Cam Barton as Executive Chairman, and Ken Bagan stepping down as Chairman into the role of Lead Director.
  • The Company appointed Lance Mierendorf as its Interim CFO.


The downturn in the oil markets that resulted from recent OPEC actions and the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to significantly reduce oil well submersible pump sales across North America in 2020.  The natural gas markets have seen recent signs of improvement in the price of gas and the Company is expecting pump sales on a limited basis in the immediate term.  The amount of work available for the remainder of the year is dependant on the price of gas and the average lifting costs for each client.


Select Financial Information for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 have been summarized below. Tables contain first quarter results for 2020 and 2019.  Refer to the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related management’s discussion and analysis (“MD&A”) for a full description.
