U.S. Silica’s adjusted earnings for fourth-quarter 2017 missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate while sales beat the same. The company sees flat volumes and pricing in the Oil & Gas segment on a sequential comparison basis in first-quarter 2018. U.S. Silica has underperformed the industry it belongs to over a year. The company is seeing significant cash outflows as reflected by sizable capital spending, which will hurt its ability to generate free cash flows. It also faces pricing and volume pressure which may affect its margins. The company is also seeing an erosion in contribution margins. An uncertain demand environment for frac sand is another concern.
