HOUSTON (AP) — Halliburton Co. (HAL) on Monday reported third-quarter earnings of $295 million.

The Houston-based company said it had net income of 34 cents per share.

“Our organization executed effectively in the third quarter. We managed the market dynamics and delivered our financial results as per expectations,” commented Jeff Miller, Chairman, President and CEO.

“Total company revenue was $5.6 billion and operating income was $536 million, representing decreases of 6% and 3%, respectively, compared to revenue and adjusted operating income in the second quarter of 2019.

“International revenue, which was flat sequentially, was up 10% year to date and we remain confident that we will achieve high single-digit international growth for all of 2019. International growth continues across multiple regions, benefitting both our Drilling and Evaluation and Completion and Production divisions.

“Our North America revenue decreased 11% sequentially driven by customer activity declines and the execution of our new playbook. I am proud of how our team performed in this challenging market. We are successfully implementing our new strategy and are focused on taking the right actions to deliver returns and cash flow for our shareholders.”

North America revenue in the third quarter of 2019 was $2.9 billion, an 11% decrease when compared to the second quarter of 2019, primarily associated with lower activity and pricing in pressure pumping and well construction services in North America land, according to the company.

“As the international recovery continues and the North American market matures, our strategy is allowing us to thrive in this dynamic environment, generate strong free cash flow and produce industry-leading returns,” said Miller.

The results met Wall Street expectations. The average estimate of 12 analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was also for earnings of 34 cents per share.

The provider of drilling services to oil and gas operators posted revenue of $5.55 billion in the period, falling short of Street forecasts. Nine analysts surveyed by Zacks expected $5.84 billion.

Halliburton shares have dropped 31% since the beginning of the year, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index has risen 19%. The stock has declined 51% in the last 12 months.
