HALLIBURTON REPORTS $1.7 BILLION LOSS IN Q4 2019

Halliburton Company announced a net loss of $1.7 billion for the fourth quarter of 2019. This compares to net income for the third quarter of 2019 of $295 million. Adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2019, excluding impairments and other charges, was $285 million. Halliburton's total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $5.2 billion, a 6% decrease from revenue of $5.6 billion in the third quarter of 2019. Reported operating loss was $1.7 billion during the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to operating income of $536 million in the third quarter of 2019. Adjusted operating income for the fourth quarter of 2019, excluding impairments and other charges, was $546 million, a 2% increase sequentially.
Total revenue for the full year of 2019 was $22.4 billion, a decrease of $1.6 billion, or 7%, from 2018. Reported operating loss for 2019 was $448 million, compared to a reported operating income of $2.5 billion for 2018. Excluding impairments and other charges, adjusted operating income for 2019 was $2.1 billion, compared to adjusted operating income of $2.7 billion for 2018. “I am pleased with how Halliburton executed for the fourth quarter and the full year. We optimized our performance in North America as the market softened, and our international business grew for the second year in a row,” commented Jeff Miller, Chairman, President and CEO. “We delivered over $900 million of free cash flow for the full year 2019, demonstrating our ability to generate consistent free cash flow throughout different business environments. “International revenue increased 10% sequentially in the fourth quarter of 2019. It also grew 10% on a full year basis, outpacing the international rig count. For the full year, revenue increased in all international regions and in both our divisions. “In 2020, we expect our international growth to continue. Increased activity, disciplined capital allocation, pricing improvements, and our ability to compete for a larger share of high-margin services should lead to improvement in our international margins in 2020.
“Our North America revenue decreased 21% sequentially in the fourth quarter and 18% for the full year as a result of reduced customer activity and pricing, and our decision to focus on returns over growth. We took swift actions in the fourth quarter making structural changes to adjust to the current market environment.
“2020 opens a new decade and a new century for Halliburton. We will continue to focus on delivering margin expansion, industry-leading returns and strong free cash flow,”
concluded Miller.
