The company reported a net loss of $1.6 billion, or $1.88 per share in the quarter, compared to a net income of $664 million, or $0.76 per share, last year, mainly due to a $2.2 billion impairment charge associated with cost structure adjustments. Adjusted EPS totaled $0.32, beating forecasts of $0.29.

CEO Jeff Miller stated, “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.”

Completion and Production revenue fell 13% sequentially to $3.1 billion due mainly to reduced activity and pricing in multiple product service lines in North America land and reduced stimulation services in Latin America.
