For the quarter, revenue was $148,069,000 against $203,889,000 for the same period of last year. Operating income was $22,227,000 against $47,893,000 for the same period of last year. Income before income tax expense was $17,206,000 against $44,777,000 for the same period of last year. Net income attributable to the company was $16,624,000 against $34,626,000 for the same period of last year. Diluted earnings per share were $0.38 against $0.81 for the same period of last year.
For the six months, revenue was $301,716,000 against $417,532,000 for the same period of last year. Operating income was $43,167,000 against $90,610,000 for the same period of last year. Income before income tax expense was $36,712,000 against $85,091,000 for the same period of last year. Net income attributable to the company was $31,706,000 against $66,025,000 for the same period of last year. Diluted earnings per share were $0.74 against $1.53 for the same period of last year. Cash flows from operating activities were $73,814,000. Capital expenditures were $5,300,000. Free cash flow is $68.5 million.
At current US activity levels, the company predicts 2016 US onshore oil production will fall approximately 1,100,000 bopd from 2015 levels, offset somewhat by gom gains of approximately 160,000 bopd, yielding a US net decline of 940,000 bopd and net decline curve rate of 10.1%. Declines in US onshore oil production will be led by tight-oil plays in the Eagle Ford, Bakken, and Niobrara and will be slightly offset with limited gains from the Permian basin. Based on currently available worldwide crude oil production data, coupled with internal core lab data, core has estimated the net worldwide annual crude oil production decline rate to be 3.3%.
Based on typical seasonality, core projects third quarter results will increase on a sequential basis from the second quarter, with revenue ranging between approximately $148,000,000 to $151,000,000, yielding operating margins increasing sequentially to approximately 15%. The company’s effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 11% in the third quarter as a result of lower profitability in higher tax rate jurisdictions. Third quarter EPS is expected to be in the $0.39 to $0.41 range, with FCF exceeding net income for the ninth consecutive quarter. On an equivalent currency basis, the company expects third quarter 2016 revenue and operating income and margins to increase from second quarter 2016 levels.
