Weatherford Reports Preliminary
Fourth Quarter Results
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ad-hoc disclosure transmitted by euro adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3-month report 21.02.2012 New quarterly revenue record drives pre-tax earnings Company to restate prior period financial results for tax adjustments GENEVA, Switzerland, Feb. 21, 2012 -- Weatherford International Ltd. (NYSE and SIX: WFT) today reported preliminary fourth quarter 2011 pre-tax income of $254 million, or $352 million after excluding pre-tax losses of $98 million. The excluded items were composed of a $67 million charge for assets principally in Libya, as well as $31 million for exit, restructuring, investigation and other costs. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/19990308/WEATHERFORDLOGO) Fourth quarter revenues of $3,710 million were the highest in the company's history. Revenues were 10 percent higher sequentially and 27 percent higher than the same period last year. North America revenue was up five percent sequentially and up 34 percent versus the fourth quarter of 2010. International revenues were up 15 percent sequentially and up 21 percent versus the same quarter of 2010. Artificial Lift, Drilling Services, Integrated Drilling and Stimulation and Chemicals posted strong sequential growth. end of ad-hoc-announcement ================================================================================ Segment operating income of $619 million improved 44 percent year-over-year and $93 million, or 18 percent sequentially. Segment operating income margins improved to 17 percent. The company's operations delivered 28 percent incremental margins sequentially, with 37 percent incremental margins in North America and 25 percent incremental margins internationally. Internationally, both Latin America and Middle East/North Africa/Asia posted strong profit improvements of $42 million and $27 million, respectively. A $28 million increase in corporate expenses, research and development and other, net, primarily attributable to higher professional service fees and foreign exchange losses, partially offset our operating improvements. Subject to the risks regarding forward-looking statements highlighted by the company in this press release and its public filings, the company expects to report fully diluted earnings per share of approximately $0.30 before excluded items in the first quarter of 2012, with seasonal increases in Canada offset by seasonal declines in Russia, the North Sea, Asia Pacific and areas of the central United States. With regard to the entirety of 2012, the company maintains a positive but measured outlook for its North American business and expects modest profit improvement as compared to 2011. Internationally, the company anticipates continued growth and expanding margins in its Latin America region, underpinned by improvements in Argentina, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela. Eastern Hemisphere is also expected to improve in 2012, with upticks in Europe and Russia, as well as continued recovery in the Middle East / North Africa / Asia Pacific region with positive contributions from new contracts with better terms and pricing and the completion of existing contracts. For 2012, we currently estimate an effective tax rate of approximately 35 percent, although the actual rate may vary. North America Revenues for the quarter were $1,698 million, a 34 percent increase over the same quarter in the prior year and up five percent sequentially. The current quarter's operating income was $382 million, up $119 million from the fourth quarter of 2010, and up $29 million, or 8 percent, compared to the prior quarter. Strong growth and expanding margins in the U.S. contributed to the sequential increase as margins improved to almost 23 percent. The Drilling Services, Artificial Lift, Stimulation and Chemicals and Re-entry and Fishing product lines contributed strong results for the quarter and contributed to our margin growth. Middle East/North Africa/Asia Fourth quarter revenues of $675 million were one percent lower than the fourth quarter of 2010 but 18 percent higher than the prior quarter. The decline from the same period in the prior year is attributable to the political unrest in parts of the region, including Libya, Algeria, and Egypt and also due to our deconsolidation of three joint ventures. The sequential increase in revenues was attributable to additional activity in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Oman. The current quarter's operating income of $44 million decreased $5 million as compared to the same quarter in the prior year and increased $27 million compared to the third quarter of 2011. Europe/West Africa/FSU Fourth quarter revenues of $609 million were 15 percent higher than the fourth quarter of 2010 and three percent higher than the prior quarter. The revenue growth over the same quarter of 2010 came from each of the regions with Russia, Kazakhstan and Nigeria as strong performers. The current quarter's operating income of $82 million was up 27 percent compared to the same quarter in the prior year and down $5 million compared to the prior quarter. The current quarter was negatively impacted by seasonality in Russia. Latin America Fourth quarter revenues of $728 million were 63 percent higher than the fourth quarter of 2010 and up 23 percent compared to the third quarter of 2011. Mexico, Venezuela and Columbia posted strong sequential performances in revenues and margins. The current quarter's operating income of $112 million increased $60 million as compared to the same quarter in the prior year and increased 60 percent or $42 million from the prior quarter. Sequentially, our Integrated Drilling and Stimulation and Chemicals product lines were the strongest performers. Change in Net Debt Net debt for the quarter decreased $112 million, with improvements in operating working capital metrics for accounts receivable and inventory both sequentially and compared to the fourth quarter of 2010. Income Tax Matters The company is reporting results on a pre-tax basis due to the following factors: - Management has concluded that the company has not remediated its previously disclosed material weakness in internal controls over financial reporting for income taxes relating to current taxes payable, certain deferred tax assets and liabilities, reserves for uncertain tax positions, and current and deferred income tax expense. - As a result of the continued material weakness over the accounting for income taxes, significant incremental work has been performed by Weatherford employees and external advisors during 2011 and early 2012, which management expects to result in roughly $225 million to $250 million of aggregate net adjustments to previously reported financial results for the years 2010 and prior relating to the correction of errors identified with respect to the company's accounting for income taxes. Of this total amount, we currently estimate that roughly two-thirds is attributable to fiscal years ending on or prior to December 31, 2008, although management's analysis is not complete. None of the adjustments is expected to affect the company's historically reported net debt balances. Based upon additional analysis and other post-closing procedures designed to ensure that the company's consolidated financial statements will be presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the company believes the review of the company's historical tax accounts has been comprehensive and that the process undertaken has been thorough. - Until we have concluded work on the above-mentioned adjustments, we will not finalize the company's tax accounts for the year ended December 31, 2011. However, we currently estimate that our income tax expense for the 2011 fiscal year will be roughly between $490 million and $520 million, including credits and charges. - The review of the income tax accounts is ongoing among the company, its advisors and the company's auditors. Once finalized, we expect to record the adjustments in the proper historical periods in the audited financial statements to be filed with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. Restatement As a result of the foregoing adjustments, the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors concluded, on February 20, 2012, that investors should no longer rely upon our previously issued financial statements. The company expects to file the restated financial statements described below due to errors relating to the company's reporting of the provision for income taxes. The Audit Committee has discussed this matter with the Company's independent registered public accounting firm. Until the restatement is completed, the company's estimates of the expected adjustments for 2010 through 2008 and prior years, and the nine months ended September 30, 2011, as well as its expected financial results for 2011, are subject to change. There can be no assurance that additional issues will not be identified during the course of the audit process and, therefore, these results should be considered preliminary until the company files its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. Any changes to the preliminary, unaudited estimated results provided in this release, as well as additional items that may be identified during the completion of the audit process, could be material to the company's financial condition and results of operations for 2011 through 2008. Management is continuing to assess the effect of the restatement on the company's internal control over financial reporting and its disclosure controls and procedures. Management will report its conclusion on internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures upon completion of the restatement process. The company intends to file restated financial statements for fiscal 2010 and 2009 in its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 as soon as practicable. The company will also include restated selected financial data for fiscal 2010 and 2009, as well as fiscal 2008 and 2007, in the Form 10-K. In addition, the company intends to include in the Form 10-K restated quarterly financial data for each of the quarters for fiscal 2010 and for the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. Based on the information regarding prior years that the company intends to include in its Form 10-K, the company does not intend to file amendments to its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 or to any of its previously filed Form 10-Qs. Reclassifications and Non-GAAP Non-GAAP performance measures and corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures have been provided for meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. Conference Call The company will host a conference call with financial analysts to discuss the preliminary 2011 fourth quarter results on February 21, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. (CDT). The company invites investors to listen to a play back of the conference call and to access the call transcript at the company's website, http://www.weatherford.com in the "investor relations" section.

We undertake no obligation to correct or update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except to the extent required under federal securities laws.

However, Weatherford's management believes that certain non-GAAP performance measures and ratios may provide users of this financial information additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. One such non-GAAP financial measure we may present from time to time is operating income or income from continuing operations excluding certain charges or amounts. This adjusted income amount is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered as a substitute for operating income, net income or other income data prepared in accordance with GAAP. See the table below for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the three months ended December 31, 2011, September 30, 2011, and December 31, 2010 and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Weatherford International Ltd.
