28 Jan, 2016, 07:30 ET from Cameron

HOUSTON, Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cameron (NYSE: CAM) today reported fully diluted earnings per share, excluding discontinued operations and other costs, of $1.08 for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $1.34 for the same period of 2014.

Other costs in the fourth quarter of 2015 amounted to $115 million on a pretax basis, or $0.43 per share, primarily related to asset charges and severance, as detailed in an accompanying table.

On a GAAP basis, the Company's fully diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2015 were $0.65, as compared to $1.28 for the same period of 2014.

For the full year 2015, the Company reported fully-diluted earnings per share, excluding discontinued operations and other costs, of $4.00, compared to $4.14 for 2014.  On a GAAP basis, the Company's 2015 fully diluted earnings per share were $2.60, as compared to $3.96 for 2014.

Commenting on the Company's performance in the fourth quarter of 2015, President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Rowe, said, "Cameron once again delivered very strong operating results in the face of a continued downturn in the energy markets.  The Company's performance was driven by accelerated progress in the transformation of our cost structure and strong execution.  In particular, the company's Subsea segment reported an operating income margin of 23.1%, more than double that of the fourth quarter of 2014."

Segment Performance

  • Subsea - Relative to the fourth quarter of 2014, the segment reported an 85% increase in operating income despite lower revenues, driven in particular by strong execution on several late-stage projects as well as a greater mix of services-related work.  Segment orders increased 27% versus the fourth quarter of 2014 and more than doubled as compared to the third quarter of 2015.  Orders for the year totaled $2.23 billion versus $2.36 billion in 2014.
  • Surface -  Revenues, operating income and margin all improved relative to the third quarter of  2015 but were lower than the fourth quarter of 2014 due in large part to the weakness in North American markets.
  • Drilling - Operating income margin increased to 21.7% in the fourth quarter of 2015 as compared to 18.5% in the fourth quarter of 2014 due to continued strong execution.  Revenues and operating income declined, reflecting lower project-related backlog as well as a reduction in service activity.
  • Valves & Measurement - Revenues, operating income and margin all declined relative to the fourth quarter of 2014, reflecting lower volumes and pricing pressures, particularly in the North American distribution market.

Outlook

Rowe said, "Although declines in energy prices will have a negative impact on our business in 2016, we remain focused on the factors that will drive our fundamental long-term performance:  execution, customer relationships, cost reduction and technology."

Cash Flow from Operations

The Company generated cash from operations of $497 million during the fourth quarter and $708 million for the full-year 2015.  The Company ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $2.4 billion.

Agreement to be Acquired by Schlumberger Limited

On August 26, 2015, Schlumberger Limited (NYSE: SLB) and Cameron jointly announced a definitive merger agreement in which the companies will combine in a stock and cash transaction. The agreement was unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies and, on December 17, Cameron stockholders overwhelmingly voted to adopt the merger agreement.  The transaction remains subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions, and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2016.

Cameron is a leading provider of flow equipment products, systems and services to worldwide oil and gas industries.
