19:00 EDTWFTWeatherford reports increased cost reduction initiatives
Weatherford's headcount at the end of Q1 dropped to 49K from 56K at the start of the year. The company's current 18% headcount reduction goal for the year will leave it with about 39K employees in its core businesses and 6K rig employees. The company has increased its 2015 reduction in force exercise to target 10K positions, in place of the previously announced 8K, with the bulk of the increase coming in North America. By the end of Q1, 6,449 terminations had been completed resulting in expected annualized savings of over $422M. The company expects to complete the entire revised program of 10K terminations by the end of Q2 generating expected annualized savings of $640M. The company had also planned to shut down seven manufacturing facilities during the year. Of these, two were closed in Q1 with four more planned for Q2 and the seventh being targeted for closure in Q3. Separately, the company plans to shut down and consolidate 60 operating facilities across North America by the end of the year. The procurement savings initiative is on track.
