Halliburton Announces Fourth Quarter Earnings of $1.00 Per Diluted Share From Continuing Operations, Excluding an Environmental-Related Charge

Reported income from continuing operations of $0.98 per diluted share

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 23, 2012-- Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) announced today that income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $921 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, excluding a $15 million charge, after-tax, or $0.02 per diluted share, for an environmental-related matter included in Corporate and other. This compares to income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2011 of $867 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, excluding a $19 million, after-tax, or $0.02 per diluted share, impairment charge on an asset held for sale in the Europe/Africa/CIS region. Net income attributable to company in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $906 million, or $0.98 per diluted share.

Halliburton’s consolidated revenue in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $7.1 billion, compared to $6.5 billion in the third quarter of 2011. Consolidated operating income was $1.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $1.3 billion in the third quarter of 2011. Improved international results accounted for the majority of these increases.

Halliburton’s revenue was $24.8 billion for the full year 2011, an increase of 38% from 2010, and consolidated operating income was $4.7 billion, an increase of 57% from 2010. Income from continuing operations for the full year 2011 was $3.0 billion, or $3.26 per diluted share, compared to full year 2010 income from continuing operations of $1.8 billion, or $1.97 per diluted share. These increases were largely attributable to strong results in North America, with higher activity in the unconventional oil and natural gas basins, partially offset by disruptions caused by geopolitical events in North Africa.

Commenting on 2011 results, Dave Lesar, chairman, president, and chief executive officer said, “I am very pleased with our fourth quarter and full year 2011 results, which set records for revenue and operating income. For the full year, we delivered record revenue for both of our business segments and three of our four geographies. During 2011, we continued to execute our growth strategy in North America while expanding our presence in key emerging international markets. Overall, we were able to deliver on our goals of superior growth, margins, and returns while strengthening our position for future growth.

“In North America, the trend toward increased horizontal oil-directed activity continued in the fourth quarter with the United States oil-directed rig count up 8% sequentially compared to a natural gas rig count decline of 2%. We expect this trend will persist into 2012, along with continued improvements in drilling and completion efficiency, leading to an overall increase in demand for our services.

“Our results in North America in 2011 were truly outstanding, with each quarter setting a new record for revenue. Fourth quarter revenue was up 6% sequentially, compared to United States rig count growth of 3%. Operating income declined slightly from the third quarter due to merger and acquisition related costs from recent acquisitions, normal seasonal factors, cost inflation, logistical challenges, and equipment and crew relocations from natural gas to liquids-rich basins.

“The improvement in the Gulf of Mexico in 2011 was encouraging. We saw increased rig count as the year progressed, particularly in deepwater, as our customers’ success with permitting improved and they resumed operations. Our strategy of keeping our infrastructure intact has paid off, with our fourth quarter revenue now above pre-moratorium levels. We expect continued activity increases in 2012.

“While international markets were challenging in 2011, I am pleased with our results. Latin America had an outstanding year topped off by a fourth quarter in which revenue and operating income increased sequentially 9% and 24%, respectively.

“Eastern Hemisphere proved challenging in 2011 as impacts from the unrest in North Africa, continued competitive pricing, and delays in Iraq weighed on our results. However, we saw progress through the year as Egypt and Algeria recovered, activity in Iraq improved, and we continued to execute strategies to improve profitability in other markets. In the fourth quarter, our Eastern Hemisphere operations experienced sequential revenue and operating income growth of 11% and 69%, respectively, compared to rig count growth of 3%, supported by strong year-end sales of software and equipment. We expect pricing will remain competitive in 2012 with improvements anticipated for select basins and some of our new technologies.

“In 2011, we executed with tremendous success our North America strategy that was started in the downturn of 2009. Similarly, we are building a position in key international markets that will enable growth as those markets develop. We are proud of the results delivered in 2011 and excited about the opportunities in 2012.

“In 2012, we expect revenue growth in excess of rig count growth in both the Eastern and Western Hemispheres. We are proactively moving equipment from dry natural gas to liquids plays in North America in response to recent rig moves. We believe strongly that we will not experience a collapse of margins in North America and, as a result, we expect revenue and operating income will increase in 2012 in North America.

“We believe that operators in North America will continue to focus on the development of their liquids-rich unconventional resource base resulting in robust demand for our services. Given the dramatic growth experienced by us and the industry during 2011, we expect continued challenges in the areas of material costs, labor, and logistics. We plan to mitigate these challenges through investment in technology and our logistical infrastructure and by seeking to recover increased costs from our customers. As a result of the recent decline in natural gas prices and corresponding decline in natural gas rig count, we are relocating people and equipment into oil and liquids-rich basins. We believe that reduced productivity and increased costs resulting from this relocation will be a short-term disruption for us and that the impact we saw in the fourth quarter will continue into 2012. We have dealt successfully with some significant logistical challenges in 2011 to accommodate the tremendous growth we have seen, and we expect to address these near-term issues with the same intensity.

“We anticipate that Eastern Hemisphere margins will return to the mid- to high-teens at the end of 2012 as we gain traction on new projects while growing revenue at a higher rate than rig count growth. Our positive view of the market supports an increase in capital spending in 2012. However, we expect pressure pumping horsepower additions will not increase over 2011, and an increased proportion of horsepower will be directed to international markets,” concluded Lesar.

2011 Fourth Quarter Results

Completion and Production

Completion and Production (C&P) revenue in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $4.3 billion, an increase of $303 million, or 8%, from the third quarter of 2011. Strong revenue growth was reflected across most product service lines, with record revenues from production enhancement, cementing, and completion tools.

C&P operating income in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $1.1 billion, an increase of $19 million, or 2%, over the third quarter of 2011. Excluding the third quarter impairment charge on an asset held for sale in the Europe/Africa/CIS region, C&P operating income was flat from the third quarter of 2011. North America C&P operating income was down 2% from the third quarter, as the impact of normal seasonality, cost inflation, logistical challenges, and recent acquisitions outweighed higher United States land and offshore activity. Latin America C&P operating income increased $8 million, or 19%, compared to the third quarter of 2011 as a result of increased stimulation work in Mexico and higher cementing activity in Mexico and Colombia. Excluding the third quarter impairment charge on an asset held for sale, Europe/Africa/CIS operating income increased due to improved vessel utilization in the North Sea, increased cementing work in Angola, and higher stimulation activity and completion tools sales in Algeria. Middle East/Asia C&P operating income increased by 4% compared to the third quarter of 2011 due to increased work in Iraq, higher demand for production enhancement services in Australia, and increased direct sales within the region.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation (D&E) revenue in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $2.7 billion, an increase of $213 million, or 8%, from the third quarter of 2011. The division experienced strong sequential revenue growth, particularly in the Middle East/Asia region.

D&E operating income in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $480 million, an increase of $111 million, or 30%, from the third quarter of 2011. North America D&E operating income was up 2% compared to the third quarter of 2011 due to higher overall activity. Latin America D&E operating income improved $25 million, or 27%, from the third quarter of 2011 primarily due to higher drilling activity and software sales in Mexico and increased demand for testing and subsea work in Brazil. Europe/Africa/CIS D&E operating income increased $14 million, or 27%, from the third quarter of 2011 as a result of increased demand for drilling services in the North Sea and Angola and a seasonal year-end increase in software sales. Middle East/Asia D&E operating income increased $69 million, or 141%, from the third quarter of 2011 primarily due to increased direct sales, drilling services in Asia, and improved activity in Iraq.

Corporate and Other

During the fourth quarter of 2011, Halliburton invested an additional $23 million in strategic projects aimed at strengthening Halliburton’s North America service delivery model and repositioning technology, supply chain, and manufacturing infrastructure to support projected international growth. Halliburton expects to continue funding this effort in 2012.

Significant Recent Events and Achievements

  • Halliburton issued $1 billion aggregate principal amount of senior notes. The notes were issued in two tranches - $500 million of 10-year notes bearing interest at a fixed rate of 3.25% per year and maturing on November 15, 2021, and $500 million of 30-year notes bearing interest at a fixed rate of 4.50% per year and maturing on November 15, 2041. Halliburton intends to use the proceeds of these offerings for general corporate purposes.
  • Halliburton announced that Murry S. Gerber has been named to the company’s board of directors. The appointment was effective January 10, 2012. Gerber became the chief executive officer of EQT Corporation in 1998 and was elected chairman in 2000. He retired as chief executive officer of EQT Corporation in April 2010 and remained as Executive Chairman until May 2011. Gerber resigned from the board of directors of EQT Corporation in January 2012.
  • Halliburton introduced AccessFrac SM stimulation service. This new service combines unique diversion technologies and pumping capabilities to create a process that helps operators achieve better long-term production from shale formations, thereby maximizing asset development. AccessFrac optimizes fracturing treatments by assuring that each perforation cluster in each interval receives the designed amount of proppant.
  • Halliburton also introduced a new class of perforating shaped charges designed for perforating oil and natural gas wells prior to hydraulic fracturing. The MaxForce®-FRAC charge is designed to optimize fracturing efficiency and placement by providing consistency of the perforation entry hole in the casing, regardless of the gun's azimuthal orientation and clearance, which can vary greatly in horizontal wells.
  • Halliburton developed and successfully deployed a rig pump diverter (RPD) system that offers operators a more economical alternative to the larger and more expensive backpressure pump. Exclusive to Halliburton, the GeoBalance® RPD system offers increased reliability, a smaller footprint, simplified operation, faster rig-up time, and lower power requirements.
  • Halliburton introduced Turbopower™ turbine drilling technology, which, compared with a conventional mud motor, provides operators with the ability to drill in a much higher-temperature environment and achieve longer downhole life and produce better and straighter hole quality at a lower cost per foot drilled. Turbine drilling technology is especially suited for hard rock drilling, high-pressure high-temperature applications, sidetracks, including open hole sidetracks, horizontal and multilateral wells, and underbalanced wells.

Founded in 1919, Halliburton is one of the world’s largest providers of products and services to the energy industry. With nearly 70,000 employees in approximately 80 countries, the company serves the upstream oil and gas industry throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir – from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction and completion, and optimizing production through the life of the field.

(a)

 

Management believes that operating income adjusted for the third quarter of 2011 asset impairment charge is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing current results with previous periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the asset impairment charge to be outside of the company’s normal operating results. Management analyzes operating income without the impact of the asset impairment charge as an indicator of ongoing operating performance, to identify underlying trends in the business, and to establish segment and region operational goals. The adjustment removes the effect of this expense.

(b)

Adjusted operating income for each segment and region is calculated as: “Operating income” less “Item Included in Operating Income.”

(a)

 

Management believes that income from continuing operations attributable to company adjusted for an environmental-related charge and an asset impairment charge is useful to investors to assess and understand operating performance, especially when comparing current results with previous periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the excluded items to be outside of the company’s normal operating results. Management analyzes income from continuing operations attributable to company without the impact of the environmental-related charge and asset impairment charge as an indicator of performance, to identify underlying trends in the business, and to establish operational goals. The adjustments remove the effect of these expenses. Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to company is calculated as: “As reported income from continuing operations attributable to company” plus “Environmental-related charge, net of tax” for the period ended December 31, 2011 and “As reported income from continuing operations attributable to company” plus “Asset impairment charge, net of tax” for the period ended September 30, 2011.

(b)

As reported income from continuing operations per diluted share is calculated as: “As reported income from continuing operations attributable to company” divided by “As reported diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.” Adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share is calculated as: “Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to company” divided by “As reported diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.”
