Item 8.01 Other Events.
On June 1, 2021, the Superior Court of the State of Delaware (the “Court”) issued a verdict in favor of Smart Sand, Inc. (the “Company”) in its lawsuit against U.S. Well Services, LLC (“U.S. Well”), a subsidiary of U.S. Well Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: USWS), following the trial that took place in December 2020. In the case, the Company alleged, along with certain other related claims, that U.S. Well breached a multi-year contract under which the Company supplied frac sand to U.S. Well, and claimed total damages of approximately $54 million. U.S. Well denied that it breached the contract and asserted counterclaims for the misuse of U.S. Well’s confidential information. U.S. Well abandoned its counterclaims after the trial.

The Court ruled that U.S. Well breached the long-term take-or-pay Master Product Purchase Agreement between the Company and U.S. Well by failing to purchase minimum required tonnages of frac sand. The Court directed the parties to submit a form of final judgment in favor of the Company and against U.S. Well, which the Company expects will become publicly available by the end of June 2021.
