Williams (NYSE: WMB) announced 2012 unaudited net income attributable to Williams of $859 million, or $1.37 per share on a diluted basis, compared with net income of $376 million, or $0.63 per share on a diluted basis for 2011.

The increase in net income for 2012 was primarily due to the absence of a $427 million loss from discontinued operations in 2011. The significant loss from discontinued operations in 2011 was primarily due to significant non-cash property impairment and other charges associated with Williams’ former exploration and production business. The 2012 net income also benefited from $136 million of income from discontinued operations, primarily due to gains following the sale of certain of our former Venezuela operations.
