This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment”) amends the below-indicated items from the Schedule 13D with respect to the shares of common stock (the “Common Stock”) of Flotek Industries Inc, (“FTK” or “the Company”) previously filed by or on behalf of the Reporting Persons (as defined below) (the “Schedule 13D”), by amendingand/ or supplementing such Items as indicated below.
Item 3.  Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.
Item 3 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
The total amount of funds used by the Reporting Persons to make all purchases of Shares beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons, as reported in Item 5(a,b) was $19,020,382. The source of funds for purchases of Shares by each of the Reporting Persons is the working capital of the applicable D3 Family Fund and Haredale Ltd.
Item 4.  Purpose of Transaction
Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended to add the following:
We have continued buying shares of FTK because of our and other shareholders’ growing enthusiasm for the rapidly improved management, governance, morale, and ownership of the company under the leadership of John W. Gibson Jr., who has been Chairman and CEO since January 6, 2020. Shareholders are benefitting from the following changes:

Even after 10 prior quarters of substantial cost reduction, FTK further reduced cost so much during Q2 ’20 that while revenue fell sequentially by 54.3%, EBITDA only fell 4.0%.

FTK is no longer exclusively focused on specialty chemicals for fracking, which is deeply cyclical. By acquiring JP3, a leading innovator of laser spectrographic measurement of fluids and gasses flowing through pipelines, FTK now addresses a $2B global market opportunity with a competitive technological solution and the prospect of recurring digital revenue. And with internal development of hand and surface sanitizer products, based on FTK’s advantages in procurement, blending, logistics and manufacturing under ISO certification and compliance with FDA policies, FTK has entered the growing multi-billion dollar domestic sanitizer market, right before temporarily approved competing products must withdraw permanently from the market.

Two legacy members of the board of directors have been succeeded by new directors Kevin W. Brown and Harsha V. Agadi, bringing deep knowledge of two of FTK’s served markets: the refinery industry served by JP3, and service industries, such as restaurants and hotels, served by FTK’s sanitizer business. The board’s audit and compensation committee both have new chairs.

In addition to hiring John Gibson to be Chairman and CEO, FTK has strengthened its management team by adding Michael E. Borton to be its CFO, TengBeng Koid to be President of Global Business, Nicholas J. Bigney to be Senior Vice President and General Counsel, and promoting Ryan Ezell to President, Chemistry Technologies.


Item 5.  Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
Item 5 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
(a)            The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 71,306,770 Shares outstanding as of Aug. 4, 2020, which is the total number of Shares outstanding as reported in the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 17, 2020.
As of the close of business on the date hereof, the Family Fund individually beneficially owned 1,384,653 Shares, constituting approximately 1.9% of all of the outstanding Shares.
As of the close of business on the date hereof, the Bulldog Fund individually beneficially owned 2,772,333 Shares, constituting approximately 3.9% of all of the outstanding Shares.
As of the close of business on the date hereof, Haredale Limited individually beneficially owned 128,424 Shares, constituting less than 1% of all of the outstanding Shares.
By virtue of its relationships with each of the Family Fund, the Bulldog Fund and the Managed Account, as discussed in further detail in Item 2, NIMCO may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the 4,285,410 Shares, beneficially owned in the aggregate by the Family Fund, the Bulldog Fund and the Managed Account, constituting approximately 6.0% of all of the outstanding Shares.
By virtue of his relationship with NIMCO, as discussed in further detail in Item 2, Mr. Nierenberg may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the 4,441,747 Shares, consisting of (i) 156,337 Shares held directly and (ii) the 4,285,410 Shares beneficially owned by NIMCO, constituting approximately 6.2% of all of the outstanding Shares.
The Reporting Persons, in the aggregate, beneficially own 4,441,747 Shares, constituting approximately 6.2% of the outstanding Shares. Each Reporting Person, as a member of a “group” with the other Reporting Persons for the purposes of Section 13(d)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, may be deemed the beneficial owner of the Shares directly owned by the other Reporting Persons. Each Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of such Shares except to the extent of his or its pecuniary interest therein.
(b)            The Family Fund, NIMCO and Mr. Nierenberg have shared power (i) to vote or direct the vote of, and (ii) to dispose or direct the disposition of, the 1,384,653 Shares held by the Family Fund.
The Bulldog Fund, NIMCO and Mr. Nierenberg have shared power (i) to vote or direct the vote of, and (ii) to dispose or direct the disposition of, the 2,772,333 Shares held by the Bulldog Fund.
