NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of KBR (KBR) - Get Report are sliding 3.49% to $14.11 in Friday afternoon trading after reporting in-line earnings and weaker-than-expected revenue for the 2016 second quarter.
Before the market open, the engineering and construction firm reported earnings of 32 cents per share that met analysts' estimates.
Revenue fell to $1.01 billion from $1.38 billion a year ago and missed analysts' projections of $1.04 billion.
During the period, KBR said it booked $12 million in restructuring costs that were primarily related to severance expenses. As part of the restructuring, KBR hired government contractor Wyle for $570 million.
Inclusive of that cost, KBR maintained its full-year earnings forecast of between $1.20 and $1.45 per share. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.30 for the year.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "hold" with a ratings score of C-.
KBR's strengths such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity and good cash flow from operations are countered by weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, unimpressive growth in net income and poor profit margins.
