KBR Boss Bill Utt Talks Financial Results

KBR (NYSE:KBR) announced today that first quarter 2010 net income attributable to KBR was $46 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to KBR of $77 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2009.

Consolidated revenue in the first quarter of 2010 was $2.6 billion compared to $3.2 billion in the first quarter of 2009. Consolidated operating income was $99 million in the first quarter of 2010 compared to $144 million in the first quarter of 2009.

Hydrocarbons business group revenue and job income in the first quarter of 2010 was $922 million and $103 million, up 4% and 5%, respectively, compared to the prior year first quarter. The Infrastructure, Government, and Power (IGP) business group revenue and job income was $1.3 billion and $86 million in the first quarter of 2010, down $549 million and $35 million, respectively, compared to the prior year first quarter, primarily related to reduced activity and absence of award fee recognition related to LogCAP III. Services job income in the first quarter of 2010 was $37 million, up $1 million compared to the first quarter of 2009, despite a $60 million decline in revenue over the same time period.

“Although KBR’s earnings per share this quarter was disappointing and adversely impacted by timing to successfully conclude change orders on the close-out of two LNG projects, the absence of award fees, and the continued reduction in services on the LogCAP III project; the Hydrocarbons group, International Government and Defense, Power and Industrial, Services, and Ventures all reported increased job income compared to the first quarter of last year, ” said Bill Utt, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of KBR. “Our expectations are that our performance in the remaining quarters in 2010 will improve and we remain comfortable with our previous outlook for 2010.”
