Halliburton Announces Second Quarter Earnings From Continuing Operations Of $0.80 Per Diluted Share

Stocks in this article: HAL

Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) announced today that income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2012 was $745 million, or $0.80 per diluted share. This compares to income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2012 of $635 million, or $0.69 per diluted share. First quarter reported results included $300 million ($191 million, after-tax, or $0.20 per diluted share) for an estimated loss contingency related to the Macondo well incident.

Halliburton’s consolidated revenue in the second quarter of 2012 was $7.2 billion, compared to $6.9 billion in the first quarter of 2012. Consolidated operating income was $1.2 billion in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2012. All international regions experienced double-digit percentage revenue and operating income growth from the first quarter of 2012. North America margins were negatively impacted, however, by rising costs and pricing pressure in production enhancement services.

“I am pleased with our second quarter results, which set a new revenue record for the total company and all three of our international regions,” commented Dave Lesar, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

“We continue to be successful in executing our strategy of market share growth while maintaining a focus on industry-leading returns. From a global perspective, we achieved record revenues in eight of our product service lines, with four of them – Cementing, Completion Tools, Multi-Chem, and Testing and Subsea – generating record operating income as well.

“Consolidated revenue for the second quarter was up over 5% sequentially. The international rig count was up 3% during the quarter, compared to a 15% increase for our international revenues. North America rig count decreased 17%, while our North America revenues were essentially flat compared to the first quarter. Key strategic market share gains in international operations, continued capacity additions, and strong utilization contributed to this outperformance.
