17:44 EDTWFTWeatherford restates 1Q12 results, sees material weakness in internal controls
The company has restated previously reported results for the first quarter 2012 and revised its preliminary second quarter 2012 results to correct errors in revenue and operating income amounts associated with a percentage of completion contract. In connection with these corrections we identified a material weakness in internal controls over financial reporting related to the accounting for a percentage of completion contract in Iraq. The unfavorable adjustments to the first and second quarters operating income total $24M and $55M, respectively. The company has implemented additional controls and procedures over percentage of completion accounting during the third quarter of 2012 to remediate the issues related to Iraq and these will be taken into account in our internal control assessment at year end 2012.
