Halliburton Announces First Quarter 2017 Results

Adjusted income from continuing operations of $0.04 per diluted share, excluding costs related to an early extinguishment of debt

Halliburton Company (HAL) announced today a loss from continuing operations of $32 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2017. This compares to a loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2016 of $149 million, or $0.17 per diluted share. Adjusted income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2017, excluding costs related to an early extinguishment of debt, was $34 million, or $0.04 per diluted share. This compares to adjusted income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2016, excluding impairments and other charges and a class action lawsuit settlement, of $35 million, or $0.04 per diluted share.

"Our total company revenue was $4.3 billion, a 6% improvement sequentially, while operating income was $203 million for the quarter. North America activity increased rapidly during the first quarter, which was highlighted by our U.S. land revenue growth of nearly 30%, outperforming the sequential average U.S. land rig count growth of 27%. In the international markets, activity declines due to seasonality were exacerbated by the current cyclical headwinds," said Dave Lesar, CEO.

"First quarter revenue in North America increased 24% sequentially, significantly outperforming our largest peer. This result was primarily driven by increased activity in our pressure pumping and well construction product service lines. The first quarter is best described as one of change, but I love the opportunity that is developing in North America because our strategy is designed to take advantage of that opportunity," remarked Jeff Miller, President.

"Eastern Hemisphere revenue declined by 12% sequentially, due to seasonality, reduced activity and pricing pressure. While we believe that the first quarter represents the bottom in the Eastern Hemisphere rig count, the full year average for 2017 will likely be only marginally higher than the full year average for 2016.

"Latin America revenue increased by 8% sequentially. This increase was primarily due to improved activity levels in Brazil and Mexico. Although we are seeing improvement in certain basins, there are a variety of country specific headwinds that must be overcome for a meaningful recovery in this region.

"We are in the midst of a unique and challenging cycle with very different dynamics between the North American and international markets. We are the execution company. I am excited by the activity I see in North America and confident in our ability to manage through any challenges in the international markets," concluded Miller.

Operating Segments

Completion and Production

Completion and Production revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $2.6 billion, an increase of $336 million, or 15%, from the fourth quarter of 2016, while operating income was $147 million, an increase of $62 million, or 73%. These improvements were primarily due to improved pressure pumping pricing and utilization in the United States land market, partially offset by a decline of completion tool sales in the Gulf of Mexico. International revenue was negatively impacted by the seasonal decline in year-end completion tool sales across the Eastern Hemisphere, and partially offset by increased activity in the Middle East and Latin America.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $1.7 billion, a decrease of $78 million, or 4%, from the fourth quarter of 2016, while operating income was $122 million, a decrease of $126 million, or 51%. These reductions resulted primarily from lower software sales across all regions, as well as lower pricing and decreased fluid sales in the Middle East. The decreases were partially offset by improved fluid sales and project management activity in Mexico.

Geographic Regions

North America

North America revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $2.2 billion, a 24% increase sequentially. This improvement was driven primarily by increased pricing and utilization throughout the United States land sector, particularly pressure pumping and well construction product service lines.

International

International revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $2.0 billion, an 8% decrease sequentially, resulting primarily from lower activity in completion tools, Landmark, fluid services and project management.

Latin America revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $463 million, an 8% increase sequentially, driven by increased activity in well completion, fluid services and production solutions in Brazil, as well as pressure pumping, fluid services and project management in Mexico.

Europe/Africa/CIS revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $604 million, an 11% decrease sequentially, resulting primarily from reduced well completion services and stimulation activity in Angola, weather-related reduced activity in the North Sea and Russia, and a decrease in drilling activity in Nigeria.

Middle East/Asia revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $981 million, a 12% decrease sequentially, with reduced pricing and activity across the region, particularly completion tools sales, project management and drilling services.

Corporate and Other

Halliburton redeemed $1.4 billion of debt during the first quarter of 2017, which included $400 million of 5.90% senior notes due September 2018 and $1.0 billion of 6.15% senior notes due September 2019. This redemption resulted in $104 million in costs related to the early extinguishment of debt, which included the redemption premium and a write-off of the remaining original debt issuance costs and debt discount, partially offset by a gain from the termination of related interest rate swap agreements.

Selective Technology & Highlights

Halliburton signed a contract with Shell Iraq Petroleum Development to provide drilling services for sustained production at Shell’s Majnoon Oil Field in Southern Iraq. Under the contract, Halliburton will mobilize three rigs to drill development wells and carry out workover activities over the next two years.

Halliburton released Cruzer(TM) depth-of-cut rolling element, an innovative drill bit technology designed to increase tool face control without reducing drilling efficiency. This provides operators with the ability to increase their rate of penetration at a lower cost per foot for improved economics.

Halliburton entered into the second phase of a technology cooperation agreement with Petrobras which will advance collaboration in a diverse set of projects targeting complex reservoirs such as deepwater pre-salt and mature fields. The project collaboration uses Halliburton’s Brazil Technology Center in Rio de Janeiro. The agreement will facilitate the development of innovative solutions in geophysics, drilling and completions, reservoir characterization, well testing, flow assurance and production.

Halliburton’s Completion Tools product service line recently set an industry record for a successful operation of a toe sleeve. The performance of its RapidStart(R) Initiator CT (casing test) sleeves opening up after 32 months down hole in two separate wells of over 7,000 feet with static bottom hole temperatures up to 215 degrees Fahrenheit. The sleeves also were functional at a total pressure of 10,000 psi, and provided a 30-minute casing integrity test.

Halliburton introduced SPECTRUM(SM) FUSION, a hybrid coiled tubing service which combines diagnostic and intervention capabilities in a single trip downhole. The FUSION service includes the first real-time system in the market using hybrid cable technology that combines fiber optic and electric to provide downhole communication and continuous power for a variety of diagnostic applications. The cable is conveyed through coiled tubing to deliver intervention, diagnostic and reservoir assessment services in one trip downhole to help customers achieve greater efficiency, safer operations and a higher return on investment.

(a)
Management believes that income (loss) from continuing operations
adjusted for costs related to the early extinguishment of debt,
impairments and other charges, and class action lawsuit settlement
is useful to investors to assess and understand operating
performance, especially when comparing those results with previous
and subsequent 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 (loss) from continuing operations without the
impact of these items as an indicator of performance, to identify
underlying trends in the business and to establish operational
goals. The adjustments remove the effects of these items. Adjusted
income from continuing operations attributable to company is
calculated as: "As reported loss from continuing operations
attributable to company" plus "Total adjustments, net of tax" for
the three months ended March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.
(b)
As reported diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for
the three months ended March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 excludes
options to purchase four million and three million shares of common
stock, respectively, as their impact would be antidilutive because
our reported income from continuing operations attributable to
company was in a loss position during each period. When adjusting
income from continuing operations attributable to company in each
period for the adjustments discussed above, these shares become
dilutive.
(c)
As reported loss from continuing operations per diluted share is
calculated as: "As reported loss 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 "Adjusted
diluted weighted average common shares outstanding."
