Halliburton Announces Second Quarter Income From Continuing Operations Of $0.73 Per Diluted Share

“We believe that the Eastern Hemisphere will continue to improve, year-over-year, with full year revenue growth in the mid-teens. We expect margins will continue to improve over the next two quarters and average in the upper teens for the full year.

“Latin America revenue was flat to the first quarter, and operating income was down 7%, primarily as a result of activity reductions in the northern region of Mexico, increased mobilization costs, and lower vessel activity. Although the first half of the year in Latin America was disappointing, we feel confident that revenue will improve in second half of the year, and expect Latin America full year margins to average in the mid-teens.

“In North America, revenue increased 3% sequentially and margins improved by 120 basis points to 17.5%. This was despite a relatively flat U.S. land rig count and seasonally lower Canadian activity levels.

“For the third quarter, we anticipate the U.S. land rig count to be flat. We are observing a continuing trend towards multi-well pad activity among our customer base, which we believe will result in higher service intensity. Ultimately, we believe this efficiency trend bodes very well for us, as our scale and expertise allows us to lead the industry in executing factory-type operations. We also expect North America margins to continue to expand over the balance of the year.

“We continue to be optimistic about Halliburton’s performance for the remainder of 2013, our ability to continue growing our North America margins, and continued revenue and margin expansion in our international business. We are relentlessly focused on delivering best-in-class returns. Our recent quarterly dividend increase, aggressive stock repurchases, and our $5 billion stock repurchase authorization reflect our growing confidence in the strength of our business outlook,” concluded Lesar.

2013 Second Quarter Results

Completion and Production

Completion and Production (C&P) revenue in the second quarter of 2013 was $4.4 billion, an increase of $263 million, or 6%, from the first quarter of 2013. Improved activity levels in the United States land market and strong international results more than offset the effects of the seasonal Canadian spring break-up.
