Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

During 2018, changes to the Frank's International N.V. (the “Company”) organizational structure were internally announced. These changes allow each segment to operate as an “independent” business in order to drive accountability and streamline decision-making while leveraging the advantages of the Company’s global infrastructure. During the first quarter of 2019, the Company’s chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) changed the information he regularly reviews to allocate resources and assess performance and the Company accordingly realigned its reporting segments into three reportable segments: Tubular Running Services (“TRS”) segment, Tubulars segment and Cementing Equipment (“CE”) segment. The TRS segment represents the prior International Services and U.S. Services segments, as well as the costs associated with manufacturing the TRS equipment. Corporate costs that were previously included in the International Services and U.S. Services segments are now included in a separate Corporate component. The Tubulars segment represents the prior Tubular Sales segment and the drilling tools business which was previously included within the International Services and U.S. Services segments, less costs associated with TRS equipment manufacturing. The CE segment is comprised of the prior Blackhawk segment. Further, regional support costs that were previously included in the International Services and U.S. Services segments are now allocated amongst the three current segments, generally based on revenue or headcount.  As a result, beginning with the press release announcing the Company’s first quarter of 2019 results and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company will report its financial performance based on this new reportable segment structure.

In addition, as part of the change in reportable segments, the Company also changed the classification of certain costs within the consolidated statements of operations to reflect a change in presentation of the information used by the Company’s CODM. Historically, and through December 31, 2018, certain direct and indirect costs related to operations were classified and reported as general and administrative expenses (“G&A”) and manufacturing costs were classified as cost of revenues, products (“COR – Products”). The historical classification was consistent with the information used by the CODM to assess the performance of the Company’s segments and make resource allocation decisions. As part of the change in reportable segments, and to provide the CODM with additional oversight over costs that directly support operations versus costs that are more general and administrative in nature, certain costs previously classified as G&A have been reclassified as cost of revenues – services (“COR – Services”). In addition, manufacturing costs previously classified as COR – Products have been reclassified to COR – Services as a result of the change in segment reporting.

See Exhibit 99.1 for more details about the new segment structure and recast quarterly segment financial results.
