Baker Hughes posted a quarterly loss compared with a profit a year ago, hit by $230 million in restructuring and impairment charges relating to the oilfield services provider's latest reorganization.
The company posted GAAP loss per share of $(0.02) for the quarter, which included $0.28 per share of adjusting items. Meanwhile, cash flows generated from operating activities were $597 million for the quarter. Free cash flow (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter was $417 million.
“The macro outlook has grown increasingly uncertain as the global economy is dealing with strong inflationary pressures, a rising interest rate environment, and sizeable fluctuations in global currencies. Despite these economic challenges, we remain positive on the outlook for oil and gas. We believe the fundamentals remain supportive of a multi-year upturn in global upstream spending, and that elevated natural gas and LNG pricing remains constructive for future FIDs. On the new energy front, recent policy movements in Europe and the U.S. are likely to help support a significant increase in clean energy development,” Baker Hughes Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli told investors during the company’s earnings call.
Baker Hughes peers, which are some of the biggest oilfield services providers, are expected to report this week. Wall Street is looking forward to a strong set of results for the third quarter from the OFS sector. In fact, expectations are for one of the strongest reports in years thanks to higher demand and pricing.
