Reports Q2 Middle East/Asia Pacific revenue down 22% to $856M, driven primarily by lower activity throughout Asia Pacific, as reflected in the 12% drop in the rig count, and in Iraq as result of a reduction to our integrated operations, including exiting a large turnkey contract in mid-2014.

These actions have resulted in decremental margins of 35% compared to the prior year, a significant improvement from the prior industry downturn. Furthermore, earnings for the quarter were impacted by an unfavorable tax rate which resulted primarily from a change in the geographic mix of earnings."
