Reports Q2 Latin America revenue down 19% to $439M, largely result of sharp activity reductions in the Andean area, as reflected in a 43% drop in the rig count, and in Venezuela from decreased operations and unfavorable exchange rates. In Brazil and Mexico, activity reductions were more than offset by offshore share gains. reports Q2 Europe/Africa/Russia Caspian revenue down 22% to $869M, impacted by $100M related to the unfavorable change in foreign exchange rates. 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. Reports Q2 Industrial Services down 8% to $306M.

CEO Martin Craighead commented, "Even though the severity of the revenue decline has compressed our margins, we have minimized the impact by aggressively reducing costs and rightsizing our operational footprint. 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."
