17:47 EDTWFTWeatherford: Income tax adjustments for prior years subject to change
Until the restatement is completed, the company's estimates of the expected income tax accounting adjustments for 2011 through 2008 and prior years, and the nine months ended September 30, 2012, are subject to change. There can be no assurance that additional income tax accounting issues will not be identified during the course of the review and audit process and, therefore, these results should be considered preliminary until the company files its Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2011, Form 10-Q/A for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, and Form 10-Q for the quarters ended June 30 and September 30, 2012. Any changes to the preliminary, unaudited estimated results provided, as well as additional items that may be identified during the completion of the review and audit processes, could be material to the company's financial condition and results of operations for the prior periods identified. Management continues to assess the effect of the restatement on the company's internal control over financial reporting for income taxes and its related disclosure controls and procedures. Management will report its final conclusion on internal control over financial reporting for income taxes and related disclosure controls and procedures upon completion of the restatement process.

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 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.
