May 3, 2016

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) announced today that income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2016 was $64 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, excluding special items. This compares to income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2015 of $270 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, excluding special items. Adjusted operating income was $225 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to adjusted operating income of $473 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. Halliburton’s total revenue in the first quarter of 2016 was $4.2 billion, compared to $5.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Market conditions continued to negatively impact Halliburton’s business in the first quarter of 2016. The rig count declined to historic lows during the quarter, in the face of continued depressed commodity prices, which created further widespread pricing pressure and activity reductions for the company’s products and services on a global basis. As a result of these conditions and their corresponding impact on the company’s business outlook, Halliburton recorded company-wide charges related primarily to asset impairments and severance costs of approximately $2.1 billion, after-tax, or $2.39 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $192 million, after-tax, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2015.

In accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, and in conjunction with the termination of its merger agreement with Baker Hughes, Halliburton determined that its proposed businesses to be divested no longer meet the assets held for sale criteria as of March 31, 2016. As a result, the company recorded corresponding charges representing the associated depreciation and amortization expense previously suspended for these businesses, along with other divestiture-related costs, within “Baker Hughes acquisition-related costs.” In total, Halliburton recorded Baker Hughes acquisition-related costs of $378 million, after-tax, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $79 million, after-tax, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2015. Halliburton also incurred $45 million, after-tax, or $0.05 per diluted share, of interest expense in the first quarter of 2016 associated with the $7.5 billion of debt issued in late 2015, compared to $27 million, after-tax, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Reported loss from continuing operations was $2.4 billion, or $2.81 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016, compared to reported loss from continuing operations of $28 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2015. Reported operating loss was $3.1 billion for the first quarter of 2016, compared to reported operating income of $86 million for the fourth quarter of 2015.

This press release should be read in conjunction with Halliburton’s operational update press release issued on April 22, 2016.

(a) Management believes that operating income (loss) adjusted for impairments and other charges and Baker Hughes acquisition-related costs for the three months ended March 31, 2016, December 31, 2015 and March 31, 2015 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 operating income (loss) 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 operating income is calculated as: “As reported operating income (loss)” plus “Total Impairments and other charges” and “Baker Hughes acquisition-related costs” for the three months ended March 31, 2016, December 31, 2015 and March 31, 2015.

(a)   Management believes that loss from continuing operations adjusted for impairments and other charges, Baker Hughes acquisition-related costs and interest expense associated with the acquisition 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 “Impairments and other charges, net of tax,” “Baker Hughes acquisition-related costs, net of tax” and “Interest expense for acquisition, net of tax” for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015.
 
(b)

As reported diluted weighted average common shares outstanding excludes options to purchase one million shares of common stock as of March 31, 2016 and two million shares of common stock as of December 31, 2015, as their impact would be antidilutive since reported income from continuing operations attributable to company was in a loss position during the periods. When adjusting income from continuing operations attributable to company in each period for the special items 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.”
