National Oilwell Varco Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2011 Earnings

Stocks in this article: NOV

Pete Miller, Chairman, President and CEO of National Oilwell Varco, remarked, “We achieved solid results in 2011. The Company posted record revenues, net income, and orders for capital equipment, which at $10.8 billion for the year handily beat our previous high of $7.3 billion. We used the year to focus on efficiency and technology, while continuing to invest for future growth, to position National Oilwell Varco to capitalize on extraordinary opportunities emerging in the oil and gas industry.

We enter 2012 with strong financial resources, $3.5 billion in cash, a solid backlog, and an experienced team capable of delivering great service and products to our customers. We believe that the oil and gas industry will continue to need to upgrade the world’s rig fleet, and we look forward to continuing to help our customers retool their rigs to improve safety, reduce environmental impact, and drive higher efficiency. I thank all of our dedicated employees for their hard work and outstanding execution this year.”
