Baron Funds Comments on Flotek Industries - Feb 25, 2014

Flotek Industries, Inc. (FTK) is primarily a supplier of specialty chemicals and directional drilling tools to the oil industry. Its products are principally used to enhance the productivity of unconventional resources and horizontal drilling operations. Flotek's shares pulled back in the quarter following flooding in Colorado and storms in Texas, which caused near-term earnings concerns. We continue to like Flotek's growth potential and we have been using the weakness to add to positions.
