The Midland, Texas-based company said earlier this month it was experiencing a “severe, negative” impact on pricing for well-fracking services as customers clamor for discounts due to the slump in oil prices.

ProPetro’s larger rivals have already announced pay cuts for executives.

ProPetro has had a tumultuous six months after the company revealed an internal investigation into financial reporting and controls, as well as an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
