Halliburton Announces Third Quarter Earnings From Continuing Operations Of $0.67 Per Diluted Share, Excluding Certain Items

Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) announced today that 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. Reported income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2012 was $608 million, or $0.65 per diluted share. This compares to income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2012 of $745 million, or $0.80 per diluted share.

Halliburton’s consolidated revenue in the third quarter of 2012 was $7.1 billion, compared to $7.2 billion in the second quarter of 2012. Consolidated operating income was $954 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $1.2 billion in the second quarter of 2012. Lower activity and higher costs in the United States land market drove these declines.

“I am pleased with the strengthening of our market position in key international geographies and in product lines where we envision strong growth in the coming years,” commented Dave Lesar, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

“We believe our international strategy is playing out as planned, as evidenced by our third quarter record revenue for both the Latin America and the Middle East/Asia regions. From a global perspective, our Drilling & Evaluation division posted record revenue for the quarter. We also achieved third quarter record revenue in four of our product service lines – Boots & Coots, Wireline and Perforating, Consulting and Project Management, and Baroid, which also had a record quarter for operating income.

“Consolidated third quarter revenue of $7.1 billion was down 2% sequentially, driven by a 5% reduction in our North America revenue. On an adjusted basis, total operating income of $982 million decreased 18% sequentially, primarily due to pricing pressure and guar cost issues in our North America Production Enhancement business.
