More than 500 golfers participated in the popular tournament, which was
supported by approximately 150 sponsors and nearly 90 Halliburton volunteers.
Held over a two-day period for the first time, the record amount raised this
year brings the 20-year total to approximately $8.5 million that has been
given to charities dedicated to an array of causes.

“It’s been a rewarding two days for us,” said Dave Lesar, Halliburton
Chairman, President and CEO. “We could not have achieved this 20-year
milestone or record donation amount without the participation and support of
our sponsors and employee volunteers. It’s a remarkable feeling to be able to
help the charity recipients in an even bigger way this year.”

The Tournament contribution to Kids’ Meals Houston will support the nonprofit
organization’s goal to end hunger among children by delivering nutritious
meals to the doors of children in need, free of cost, every weekday year
round. Currently, the staff and volunteers deliver more than 1,700 lunches per
day, but hundreds of children are on the waiting list.

Another beneficiary of The Tournament proceeds is the Justin J. Watt
Foundation in support of after-school opportunities for middle-school
children. To date, the foundation has provided funds to 46 different programs
to help students learn the basic character traits of accountability, teamwork,
leadership, work ethic and perseverance while in a safe and supervised
environment with their peers.

On Oct. 1, Halliburton launched its annual workplace giving campaign called
“Giving Choices.” The campaign kicks off every October for employees in the

India, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. For employees in seven Middle
Eastern countries, the campaign takes place during the month of Ramadan.

Employees participate in “Giving Choices” by generously pledging donations
toward the charities of their choice. In 2012, Halliburton employees globally
pledged more than $3.4 million to assist their local communities.
