United States District Rules In Favor Of KBR Reconfirming Arbitration Award Against PEP

KBR (NYSE: KBR) has announced that the United States District Court Southern District of New York has ruled in favor of KBR, reconfirming the arbitration award against Pemex Exploration and Production (PEP), a subsidiary of PEMEX, the Mexican national oil company.

In his decision, New York District Court Judge Alvin Hellerstein, stated that the Mexican nullification of the arbitration award “violated basic notions of justice.”

“The District Court’s reconfirmation of the International Chamber of Commerce’s 2010 decision brings KBR one step closer to finally resolving this legacy issue,” said Andrew Farley, Executive Vice President and General Counsel.

Additional information regarding this matter can be found in KBR’s Form 10-Q for the period ending June 30, 2013, in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Note 6) under Pemex Arbitration.
