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

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.
