KBR Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

KBR (NYSE:KBR) announced today that third quarter 2012 net income attributable to KBR was $97 million on an adjusted, non-GAAP basis, or $0.65 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to KBR of $93 million on an adjusted, non-GAAP basis, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.

On a GAAP basis, third quarter 2012 net loss attributable to KBR of $81 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, includes a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $178 million, or $1.20 per diluted share, related to a market assessment of the Minerals Business Unit. Third quarter 2011 net income attributable to KBR of $185 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, includes discrete tax benefits of $92 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, related to an arbitration award in favor of Barracuda & Caratinga Leasing Company B.V. as well as a deferred tax liability release for KBR’s share of an Australian rail investment.

Tables reconciling net income, EPS, and effective tax rates excluding the goodwill impairment charge to generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) results are attached to this release. This release and accompanying reconciliation tables are available on the investor relations section of KBR’s website at

Consolidated revenue in the third quarter 2012 was $2.0 billion compared to $2.4 billion in the third quarter of 2011. Operating loss in the third quarter 2012 was $11 million compared to operating income of $138 million in the prior year third quarter.

“The emergence of North American shale gas resources is a net positive development for KBR; however, over the past several quarters we have witnessed a severe reduction in solid fuel materials handling prospects in North America that has triggered KBR writing down goodwill from our 2010 acquisition of Roberts & Schaefer. If we look beyond the goodwill impairment, and despite some headwinds at our U.S. Construction Business Unit and a legacy Roberts & Schaefer project, I am extremely pleased with KBR’s continued strong financial and operating performance this quarter,” said Bill Utt, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of KBR. “We continue to see significant new project opportunities across all of our Business Units and remain confident in KBR’s ability to continue to execute our projects successfully going forward.”
