Halliburton Announces Fourth Quarter Income From Continuing Operations of $0.63 Per Diluted Share

HOUSTON--()--Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) announced today that income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $589 million, or $0.63 per diluted share. This compares to reported income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2012 of $608 million, or $0.65 per diluted share. Adjusted income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2012 was $625 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, excluding a $30 million after-tax ($0.03 per diluted share) acquisition-related charge and a $13 million after-tax ($0.01 per diluted share) gain from the settlement of a patent infringement case.

Halliburton’s total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $7.3 billion, compared to $7.1 billion in the third quarter of 2012. Total operating income was $981 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $954 million in the third quarter of 2012. Strong growth in our international regions, particularly in Middle East/Asia and Latin America, more than offset seasonally lower activity levels in North America.

Halliburton’s total revenue was $28.5 billion for the full year 2012, an increase of $3.7 billion, or 15%, from 2011. Total operating income decreased $578 million, or 12%, from 2011 mainly due to higher guar costs and pricing pressure for production enhancement services in North America and a $300 million charge for an estimated loss contingency related to the Macondo well incident. Income from continuing operations for the full year 2012 was $2.6 billion, or $2.78 per diluted share, compared to full year 2011 income from continuing operations of $3.0 billion, or $3.26 per diluted share.

“I am very proud to say that our company delivered industry-leading revenue growth in 2012, resulting in a record year,” commented Dave Lesar, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

“From a revenue perspective, we set new records this year in all of our regions and both of our divisions. From an operating income perspective, we achieved new records in our Latin America region and in five of our twelve product lines.

“In the fourth quarter, revenue of $7.3 billion was up 3% sequentially and represents the highest quarterly revenue in company history. All three of our international regions and eight of our twelve product lines set new revenue records.

“Fourth quarter operating income of $981 million was flat with adjusted results from the prior quarter. These results were driven by our international regions, where we also saw fourth quarter revenue and operating income growth of 20% and 39%, respectively, compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. I am also proud to say that both our Latin America and Middle East/Asia regions, as well as our completion tools product line, achieved record operating income.

“Latin America revenue was up 14% sequentially, despite a 2% drop in the rig count, and adjusted operating income increased 25% sequentially. Increased drilling fluids service activity, along with higher software sales in Mexico and Colombia, led the growth for the region.

“In the Eastern Hemisphere, revenue grew 11% sequentially, and operating income increased 35% sequentially, driven by year-end sales of completion tools, software, and other equipment. We believe activity levels will continue to grow in 2013, and anticipate full-year margins should average in the upper teens.

“Sequentially, Middle East/Asia revenue and operating income increased 14% and 46%, respectively. The growth was driven by higher year-end software, equipment, and completion tools sales, as well as increased service activity in Saudi Arabia and Australia.

“In Europe/Africa/CIS, we saw revenue and operating income increase 8% and 23%, respectively, compared to the prior quarter. The improvement was driven by the seasonally higher year-end completion tool sales in Angola and the North Sea, greater demand for drilling services in the North Sea and Russia, and increased service activity in East Africa.

“North America revenue was down 5% compared to the previous quarter, in line with the sequential 5% drop in the United States land rig count. Operating income was down 22% compared to adjusted third quarter results, driven mainly by an unusually high post-Thanksgiving decline in activity levels with key customers, increased consumption of our high priced supply of guar, and continued pricing pressure around hydraulic fracturing contracts.

“Our North America margins are also temporarily being negatively impacted by the upfront roll out costs of our Frac of the Future initiative, by our commitment to our customers to remain active in the North America natural gas basins at lower margins, and by our decision to stack equipment during the fourth quarter.

“In 2013, we anticipate the North America rig count will improve from fourth quarter levels but will be down slightly compared to 2012. We are committed to our leadership position in North America, and are focused on rebuilding margins as we recover from last year’s elevated guar costs, reap the benefits of our strategic initiatives, and look at all of our costs. Lastly, we remain laser-focused on capital discipline, especially in pressure pumping,” concluded Lesar.

2012 Fourth Quarter Results

Completion and Production

Completion and Production (C&P) revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $4.3 billion, an increase of $44 million, or 1%, from the third quarter of 2012. Higher completion activity in the Gulf of Mexico and increased direct sales internationally more than offset seasonally lower activity levels in the United States land market.

C&P operating income in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $603 million, an increase of $12 million, or 2%, from the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impact of the acquisition-related charge in the third quarter, C&P operating income decreased $36 million, or 6%. North America C&P operating income decreased $68 million, or 18%, compared to the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the third quarter acquisition-related charge, North America C&P operating income decreased $108 million, or 26%, from the third quarter of 2012, primarily due to seasonally affected activity levels, higher input costs, and pricing pressure associated with production enhancement services. Latin America C&P operating income improved $17 million, or 43%, compared to the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the third quarter acquisition-related charge, Latin America C&P operating income improved $9 million, or 19%, compared to the third quarter of 2012, as improved profitability in Argentina more than offset lower completions activity in Mexico. Europe/Africa/CIS C&P operating income increased $19 million, or 22%, from the third quarter of 2012, driven by increased completions activity in Angola and Norway. Middle East/Asia C&P operating income improved $44 million, or 55%, compared to the third quarter of 2012, as a result of higher activity in most product lines in Saudi Arabia and Australia, as well as increased direct sales in China and Saudi Arabia.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation (D&E) revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $3.0 billion, an increase of $135 million, or 5%, from the third quarter of 2012, as higher drilling activity in Latin America and year-end software sales more than offset seasonally lower activity levels in the United States land market.

D&E operating income in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $484 million, an increase of $54 million, or 13%, from the third quarter of 2012. North America D&E operating income decreased $24 million, or 14%, from the third quarter of 2012, primarily due to lower drilling and wireline activity in the United States land market, which was partially offset by increased demand for drilling services in Canada and the Gulf of Mexico and year-end software sales. Latin America D&E operating income increased $30 million, or 28%, from the third quarter of 2012, as increased software sales, fluids activity, and consulting services in Mexico and Colombia were partially offset by lower wireline activity and software sales in Brazil. Europe/Africa/CIS D&E operating income increased $16 million, or 25%, from the third quarter of 2012 as a result of increased demand for drilling services in the North Sea, year-end software sales in Russia, and higher wireline profitability in Angola, which were partially offset by lower profitability for fluid services in Norway. Middle East/Asia D&E operating income increased $32 million, or 37%, from the third quarter of 2012, due to seasonally higher year-end software and activity improvements across the region.

Corporate and Other

During the fourth quarter of 2012, Halliburton invested an additional $36 million, pre-tax, in strategic projects aimed at strengthening Halliburton’s North America service delivery model and repositioning technology, supply chain, and manufacturing infrastructure to support projected international growth. Halliburton expects to continue funding this effort in 2013.

(a)

  Management believes that operating income adjusted for the fourth quarter of 2011 environmental-related charge and the third quarter of 2012 acquisition-related charge and settlement of a patent infringement case is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views these items to be outside of the company’s normal operating results. Management analyzes operating income without the impact of these items as an indicator of ongoing operating performance, to identify underlying trends in the business, and to establish operational goals, including segment and region operational goals. The adjustments remove the effects of these expenses.

(b)

Adjusted operating income for each segment and region is calculated as: “Operating income” less “Items Included in Operating Income.”

(a)

  Management believes that income from continuing operations attributable to company adjusted for the acquisition-related charge and patent infringement case settlement is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing those results with previous and subsequent periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the excluded items to be outside of the company's normal operating results. Management analyzes income from continuing operations attributable to company without the impact of these items as an indicator of performance, to identify underlying trends in the business, and to establish operational goals. The adjustments remove the effects of these expenses. Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to company is calculated as: “As reported income from continuing operations attributable to company” plus “Acquisition-related charge, net of tax” plus “Patent infringement case settlement, net of tax” for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

(b)

As reported income from continuing operations per diluted share is calculated as: “As reported income from continuing operations attributable to company” divided by “As reported diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.” Adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share is calculated as: “Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to company” divided by “As reported diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.”
