A holder’s tax basis in KBR common stock received in the exchange offer (including any fractional interest in KBR common stock to which the holder was entitled) is the same as the aggregate basis of the holder’s Halliburton common stock that was exchanged. For example, if you exchanged Halliburton common stock with a cost basis of $1,000, your cost basis for the KBR common stock you received in exchange would equal $1,000 less any cash received in lieu of fractional shares. In addition, the date of acquisition for the KBR shares will remain the date you acquired the exchanged Halliburton shares.
