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

“In the fourth quarter, revenue of $7.3 billion was up 3% sequentially and represents the highest quarterly revenue in company history. All three of our international regions and eight of our twelve product lines set new revenue records.

“Fourth quarter operating income of $981 million was flat with adjusted results from the prior quarter. These results were driven by our international regions, where we also saw fourth quarter revenue and operating income growth of 20% and 39%, respectively, compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. I am also proud to say that both our Latin America and Middle East/Asia regions, as well as our completion tools product line, achieved record operating income.

“Latin America revenue was up 14% sequentially, despite a 2% drop in the rig count, and adjusted operating income increased 25% sequentially. Increased drilling fluids service activity, along with higher software sales in Mexico and Colombia, led the growth for the region.

“In the Eastern Hemisphere, revenue grew 11% sequentially, and operating income increased 35% sequentially, driven by year-end sales of completion tools, software, and other equipment. We believe activity levels will continue to grow in 2013, and anticipate full-year margins should average in the upper teens.

“Sequentially, Middle East/Asia revenue and operating income increased 14% and 46%, respectively. The growth was driven by higher year-end software, equipment, and completion tools sales, as well as increased service activity in Saudi Arabia and Australia.

“In Europe/Africa/CIS, we saw revenue and operating income increase 8% and 23%, respectively, compared to the prior quarter. The improvement was driven by the seasonally higher year-end completion tool sales in Angola and the North Sea, greater demand for drilling services in the North Sea and Russia, and increased service activity in East Africa.

“North America revenue was down 5% compared to the previous quarter, in line with the sequential 5% drop in the United States land rig count. Operating income was down 22% compared to adjusted third quarter results, driven mainly by an unusually high post-Thanksgiving decline in activity levels with key customers, increased consumption of our high priced supply of guar, and continued pricing pressure around hydraulic fracturing contracts.
