  • Reported net income of $0.26 per diluted share

  • Adjusted net income of $0.28 per diluted share

  • Cash flow from operating activities of $617 million and free cash flow of $469 million

HOUSTON, October 19, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL) announced today net income of $236 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2021. This compares to net income for the second quarter of 2021 of $227 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2021, excluding special items, was $248 million, or $0.28 per diluted share. Halliburton's total revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $3.9 billion compared to revenue of $3.7 billion in the second quarter of 2021. Reported operating income was $446 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to reported operating income of $434 million in the second quarter of 2021. Excluding special items, adjusted operating income was $458 million in the third quarter of 2021.

"Our third quarter performance demonstrates the effectiveness of both our strategy and our execution. Total company revenue increased 4% sequentially, and adjusted operating income grew 6% with solid margins in both divisions," commented Jeff Miller, Chairman, President and CEO.

"Both operating divisions experienced revenue growth in the international and North America Land markets. Our Completion and Production division delivered solid mid-teens margins, and our Drilling and Evaluation division margins maintained their steady momentum.

"I am pleased with our strengthening free cash flow profile. In the third quarter, we generated $469 million of free cash flow, retired $500 million of debt, and maintained our cash balance at $2.6 billion.

"I see a multi-year upcycle unfolding. Structural global commodity tightness drives increased demand for our services, both internationally and in North America. I believe Halliburton is uniquely positioned in both markets to benefit from this improving environment.

"I believe our value proposition, technology differentiation, digital adoption, and capital efficiency will allow us to deliver profitable growth internationally and maximize value in North America. Halliburton will continue to execute our key strategic priorities to deliver industry-leading returns and strong free cash flow for our shareholders," concluded Miller.

Operating Segments

Completion and Production

Completion and Production revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $2.1 billion, an increase of $88 million, or 4%, when compared to the second quarter of 2021, while operating income was $322 million, an increase of $5 million, or 2%. These results were driven by increased activity across multiple product service lines in the Western Hemisphere, higher cementing activity in the Middle East/Asia region, as well as increased well intervention services in the Europe/Africa/CIS region. These improvements were partially offset by accelerated maintenance expenses for our stimulation business in North America, reduced completion tool sales in the Eastern Hemisphere, and lower stimulation activity in the Middle East/Asia region.

Drilling and Evaluation

Drilling and Evaluation revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.7 billion, an increase of $65 million, or 4%, when compared to the second quarter of 2021, while operating income was $186 million, an increase of $11 million, or 6%. These results were due to improved drilling-related services internationally and in North America land, additional testing services and wireline activity across Latin America, along with increased project management activity in Mexico and Ecuador. Partially offsetting these increases were reduced drilling-related services in Norway and the Gulf of Mexico.

Geographic Regions

North America

North America revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.6 billion, a 3% increase when compared to the second quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily driven by higher well construction services, artificial lift activity, and wireline activity in North America land, increased completion tool sales in the Gulf of Mexico, and additional stimulation and drilling activity in Canada. Partially offsetting these increases were reduced drilling-related, wireline, and stimulation activity in the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the impact from Hurricane Ida.

International

International revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $2.2 billion, a 5% increase when compared to the second quarter of 2021. This improvement was primarily driven by higher activity across multiple product service lines in Latin America as well as higher well intervention services in the Europe/Africa/CIS region and well construction services across the Eastern Hemisphere. Partially offsetting these increases were lower completion tool sales in the Eastern Hemisphere, reduced activity in Norway, and decreased stimulation activity in the Middle East/Asia region.

Latin America revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $624 million, a 17% increase sequentially. This improvement was driven by increased activity in multiple product service lines in Argentina, Mexico, and Brazil, as well as higher well construction services in Colombia and improved project management activity in Ecuador. These increases were partially offset by reduced fluid services in the Caribbean.

Europe/Africa/CIS revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $676 million, essentially flat sequentially. Higher well intervention services across the region, increased well construction services and completion tool sales in Nigeria, additional pipeline and fluid services in Russia, and increased activity across multiple product service lines in Senegal, were offset by decreased activity across multiple product service lines in the North Sea and Algeria, and lower completion tool sales in Angola.

Middle East/Asia revenue in the third quarter of 2021 was $945 million, a 2% increase sequentially, resulting from improved well construction activity in the Middle East and Australia. These improvements were partially offset by lower completion tool sales across the region, along with reduced wireline and stimulation activity in Saudi Arabia, lower project management activity in India, and lower stimulation activity in Malaysia.

Other Financial Items

Halliburton closed the structured transaction for our North America real estate assets, which resulted in a $74 million gain. We also discontinued the proposed sale of our Pipeline and Process Services business leading to a depreciation catch-up related to these assets previously classified as held for sale. As a result, among these and other items, we recognized a pre-tax charge of $12 million.

During the third quarter of 2021, Halliburton retired $500 million of 2021 senior notes using cash on hand.

Selected Technology & Highlights

  • Halliburton announced a successful deployment of its SmartFleet™ intelligent fracturing system with a major operator in the Permian Basin. The SmartFleet system integrates intelligent automation and visualization with subsurface measurements across multiple wells to dynamically respond to reservoir behavior. By using the SmartFleet system, operators can achieve real-time control of fracture placement and improve overall completion execution.

  • Halliburton introduced ExpressFiber™, a fiber optic cable that offers accurate, direct subsurface measurements, including cross-well communication, at a price point that enables fracture monitoring on every well pad. ExpressFiber uses distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) to acquire a direct measurement of micro seismic, strain, and temperature unlike other cross-well monitoring techniques that provide indirect estimates. ExpressFiber, paired with our intelligent fracturing and subsurface monitoring services, provides real-time actionable insights of fracture growth and well interference, allowing operators to improve completions designs and gain overall capital efficiency.

  • Halliburton and VoltaGrid LLC announced a successful deployment of an advanced electric fracturing solution on a multi-year contract with Chesapeake Energy Corporation in the Marcellus shale. The solution combines Halliburton’s all-electric fracturing spread featuring the Zeus™ 5,000 horsepower (HHP) electric pumping unit with VoltaGrid’s advanced power generation system. This high-performing solution reduced emissions for Chesapeake by 32% and applied over 25 megawatts of lower-carbon power generation by leveraging Chesapeake’s local field gas network.

  • Halliburton Landmark released the latest version of Geosciences Suite, a DecisionSpace® 365 cloud solution powered by iEnergy®, an E&P hybrid cloud. The software combines innovative technology with a tightly integrated, end-to-end suite of workflows to create a complete and connected geoscience solution that enables a subsurface digital twin. This cloud solution can reduce exploration uncertainty by improving understanding of complex reservoirs to increase recovery.

  • Halliburton introduced IsoBond™, a cement system that reduces sustained casing pressure (SCP) at its source to deliver a barrier that minimizes fluid loss, shortens transition time, and improves shear bonding. The IsoBond cement system alleviates SCP on all fronts, unlike slurries that are only designed to mitigate against fluid loss. Halliburton has pumped over 15,000 barrels of IsoBond across multiple wells in North America and Latin America.

  • Halliburton announced an award of an integrated services contract to execute a drilling and completions campaign for Energean, an independent E&P company focused on developing resources in the Mediterranean and the North Sea. The work follows a successful offshore drilling campaign that Halliburton previously executed for Energean in the Karish and Karish North gas fields.

  • Halliburton released the iStar™ Intelligent Drilling and Logging Platform, a comprehensive measurement platform comprising multiple services for greater control of drilling and logging operations. The platform’s digital architecture supports automation, machine learning, and artificial intelligence for reservoir evaluation, faster drilling, and consistent well delivery.

(a)

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, Halliburton closed the structured transaction for our North America real estate assets, which resulted in a $74 million gain. We also discontinued the proposed sale of our Pipeline and Process Services business leading to a depreciation catch-up related to these assets previously classified as held for sale. As a result, among these and other items, we recognized a $12 million pre-tax charge. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, Halliburton recognized a pre-tax charge of $133 million primarily related to severance costs.

(b)

Management believes that operating income adjusted for impairments and other charges for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, 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 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 effect of these items. Adjusted operating income is calculated as: "As reported operating income" plus "Total impairments and other charges" for the respective periods.

(a)

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, Halliburton closed the structured transaction for our North America real estate assets, which resulted in a $74 million gain. We also discontinued the proposed sale of our Pipeline and Process Services business leading to a depreciation catch-up related to these assets previously classified as held for sale. As a result, among these and other items, we recognized a $12 million pre-tax charge. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, Halliburton recognized a pre-tax charge of $3.4 billion, primarily related to long-lived assets impairments. These impairments include impairments of property, plant, and equipment, intangible assets, leases, and real estate facilities.

(b)

Management believes that operating income (loss) adjusted for impairments and other charges for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, 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 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 effect of these items. Adjusted operating income is calculated as: "As reported operating income (loss)" plus "Total impairments and other charges" for the respective periods.

The tax benefit in the table above includes the tax effect on impairments and other charges during the three months ended September 30, 2020.

(b)

Management believes that net income (loss) adjusted for impairments and other charges, along with the associated noncontrolling interest, 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 net income without the impact of these items as an indicator of performance to identify underlying trends in the business and to establish operational goals. Total adjustments remove the effect of these items. Adjusted net income attributable to company is calculated as: "As reported net income (loss) attributable to company" plus "Total adjustments, net of taxes" for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.

(c)

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, as reported diluted weighted average common shares outstanding excludes one million shares associated with stock-based compensation plans as the impact is antidilutive since Halliburton's reported income attributable to company was in a loss position during the period. When adjusting income attributable to company in that period for the adjustments discussed above, these shares become dilutive.

(d)

As reported net income (loss) per diluted share is calculated as: "As reported net income (loss) attributable to company" divided by "As reported diluted weighted average common shares outstanding." Adjusted net income per diluted share is calculated as: "Adjusted net income attributable to company" divided by "Adjusted diluted weighted average common shares outstanding."

(b)

Management believes that net income (loss) adjusted for the loss on early extinguishment of debt and impairments and other charges, along with the associated noncontrolling interest, 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 net income without the impact of these items as an indicator of performance to identify underlying trends in the business and to establish operational goals.

The Free Cash Flow metric is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is calculated as "Total cash flows provided by operating activities" less "Capital expenditures" plus "Proceeds from sales of property, plant, and equipment." Management believes that Free Cash Flow is a key measure to assess liquidity of the business and is consistent with the disclosures of our direct, large-cap competitors. Prior periods presented are consistent with this metric.
