Clay C. Williams, Chairman, President and CEO of National Oilwell Varco, stated, "The sharp decline in oil prices and activity since late last year has impacted each of our segments, and will drive activity lower in the fourth quarter. We believe our strong financial resources will enable National Oilwell Varco to invest in the extraordinary opportunities that will arise from this downturn, and we expect to emerge with greater capability and efficiency. In the meantime, with limited visibility into the timing of a recovery, we remain focused on managing costs and improving performance, while continuing to develop technologies that help our customers to improve their returns in a lower commodity price world."

Note 1: In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we disclose, as appropriate, various non-GAAP financial measures in our quarterly earnings press releases and other public disclosures. The primary non-GAAP financial measures we focus on, when applicable, are: (i) revenue excluding other items, (ii) operating profit excluding other items, (iii) operating profit percentage excluding other items, (iv) operating profit excluding other items before depreciation & amortization, (v) operating profit percentage excluding other items before depreciation & amortization, (vi) EBITDA, (vii) EBITDA excluding other items, (viii) Operating (non-GAAP) per fully diluted share and (ix) Operating (non-GAAP) excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets per fully diluted share. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain items and therefore has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure is included here within.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate and manage the Company's operations because we believe it provides useful supplemental information regarding the Company's on-going economic performance. We have chosen to provide this information to investors to enable them to perform more meaningful comparisons of operating results and as a means to emphasize the results of on-going operations.
