Halliburton Announces Second Quarter Income from Continuing Operations of $0.91 Per Diluted Share

  Halliburton Announces Second Quarter Income from Continuing Operations of   $0.91 Per Diluted Share              Share repurchase authorization increased to $6 billion  Business Wire  HOUSTON -- July 21, 2014  Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) announced today that income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2014 was $776 million, or $0.91 per diluted share. This compares to income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2014 of $623 million, or $0.73 per diluted share.  Halliburton's total revenue in the second quarter of 2014 was a record $8.1 billion, compared to $7.3 billion in the first quarter of 2014. Operating income was $1.2 billion in the second quarter of 2014, 23% higher than operating income of $970 million in the first quarter of 2014 resulting from significant activity improvements in North America and the Eastern Hemisphere.  “I am very pleased with Halliburton’s second quarter results and continue to be very excited about the momentum of our business for the rest of the year and beyond. Once again, we delivered industry-leading revenue growth both sequentially and year over year compared to our primary peers,” commented Dave Lesar, chairman, president and chief executive officer.  “In North America, second quarter revenue increased 11% and operating income was up 31% compared to the first quarter of 2014, outpacing a 4% increase in the United States land rig count. Service intensity levels continued to expand, as completion volumes per well were up more than 35% compared to the second quarter of last year.  “We expect North America activity levels to continue to improve, with margins approaching 20% in the third quarter. We have concluded based on the strength of this outlook that we will immediately accelerate additions to our hydraulic fracturing fleet and logistics capabilities, with new crews available for service beginning later this year.  “In the Eastern Hemisphere, we are successfully executing our growth strategy. Relative to the first quarter of 2014, we grew Eastern Hemisphere revenue by 9% and operating income by 26%. We continue to forecast full-year Eastern Hemisphere revenue growth in the low double digits, with average full year margins in the upper teens.  “In the Middle East/Asia region, revenue increased 11% and operating income increased 25% sequentially. Saudi Arabia continued to lead the growth, and we expect this region to have the highest growth rate for the full-year 2014, despite the potential for activity disruptions or project delays in Iraq later this year.  “In Europe/Africa/CIS, sequential revenue and operating income increased 6% and 27%, respectively. The growth resulted from seasonal recovery in the North Sea and in Russia, as well as activity gains in sub-Saharan Africa.  “In Latin America, revenue increased 4% sequentially, while operating income declined 39%. While we are very encouraged about the prospects for Energy Reform in Mexico, the land rig count was near historic low levels during the second quarter. Our results for the second quarter of 2014 were also negatively impacted by the late receipt of our blanket order for consulting and project management work, which impacted our ability to book revenue and offset costs. In addition, margins were impacted by mobilization costs for our integrated projects in Mexico. Both of these issues are expected to turn around in the second half of the year. We believe full year Latin America margins should improve sufficiently to be in line with 2013 assuming the timely approval of our billings under the blanket order in Mexico, as well as a swift resolution of the retender of our Brazil drilling contract.  “Our strategy is working well and we intend to stay the course. We see strong, sustainable growth opportunities across the mature field, deepwater and unconventional markets. We continue to be excited about the North America market, and although there may be near-term choppiness in certain international markets, we see a strong pipeline of opportunities.  “Our recent strong financial performance has enabled us to increase our shareholder distributions while maintaining robust liquidity to fund future growth. Our board recently approved an additional $4.8 billion in stock repurchase authorization, to a new total repurchase capacity of $6 billion. This reflects our confidence in the strength of our long-term business outlook, our commitment to shareholder distributions, and our focus on delivering best-in-class returns,” concluded Lesar.  2014 Second Quarter Results  Completion and Production  Completion and Production (C&P) revenue in the second quarter of 2014 was $4.9 billion, an increase of $522 million, or 12%, from the first quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily driven by higher stimulation activity in the United States land market and strong growth in our international operations, which more than offset the effects of the seasonal Canadian spring break-up.  C&P operating income in the second quarter of 2014 was $887 million, an increase of $226 million, or 34%, from the first quarter of 2014. North America C&P operating income improved by $184 million, or 41%, sequentially, mainly due to increased stimulation activity in the United States land market. Latin America C&P operating income was flat compared to the first quarter, primarily due to higher cementing activity in Mexico, which was offset by lower activity in Venezuela. Europe/Africa/CIS C&P operating income increased $18 million, or 23%, compared to the first quarter of 2014, due to seasonal activity increases in Russia and Europe and higher activity in Congo, which were partially offset by lower completion tools sales in Angola. Middle East/Asia C&P operating income rose $24 million, or 27%, sequentially, due to increased activity for most product lines in Saudi Arabia, Australia, and Malaysia.  Drilling and Evaluation  Drilling and Evaluation (D&E) revenue in the second quarter of 2014 was $3.1 billion, an increase of $181 million, or 6%, from the first quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily driven by higher wireline and fluid services in the Eastern Hemisphere and the United States, which more than offset the effects of the seasonal Canadian spring break-up and lower activity in Mexico.  D&E operating income in the second quarter of 2014 was $414 million, an increase of $16 million, or 4%, from the first quarter of 2014. North America D&E operating income increased $4 million, or 3%, sequentially, due to increased logging and fluid services in the United States, which were partially offset by reduced software sales in the United States and the effects of the Canadian spring break-up. Latin America D&E operating income decreased $39 million, or 75% from the first quarter of 2014, primarily due to lower activity in Mexico and reduced drilling activity in Brazil, which were partially offset by higher wireline activity in Venezuela. Europe/Africa/CIS D&E operating income improved by $22 million, or 32%, sequentially, due to increased drilling activity in Norway and Angola, which was partially offset by lower drilling services in the United Kingdom and Eurasia. Middle East/Asia D&E operating income increased $29 million, or 24%, compared to the first quarter of 2014, mainly due to higher drilling activity in Saudi Arabia and increased direct sales in China, which were partially offset by lower demand for drilling services in Malaysia.  Corporate and Other  During the second quarter of 2014, Halliburton invested an additional $15 million, pre-tax, 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 the cost of these strategic projects to wind down during the remainder of 2014.  Significant Recent Events and Achievements    *Halliburton announced the release of the CYPHER^sm 2.0     Seismic-to-Stimulation Service, a proprietary and collaborative workflow     that links geoscience with reservoir, drilling, and completion engineering     to allow operators to better predict and produce unconventional reserves.
