Weatherford Reports Fourth Quarter and 2014 Annual Results
Fourth Quarter EPS of $0.32 per share (non-GAAP)
Reduces Net Debt by $1.1 billion and generates free cash flow of $180 million
 
BAAR, SWITZERLAND, February 4, 2015 - Weatherford International plc (NYSE: WFT) reported net income before charges of $252 million ($0.32 diluted earnings per share non-GAAP) on revenues of $3.73 billion for the fourth quarter of 2014.

Full Year 2014 Highlights
Margin improvement of 24% and non-GAAP earnings per share improvement of 67% from 2013;
Non-core divestiture proceeds over $1.7 billion;
Net Debt reduction over $1.2 billion;
Annualized pre-tax cost reduction of $500 million; and
Multiple U.S. government agency investigations settled.

Fourth Quarter 2014 Highlights
Completed the sale of our Engineered Chemistry and Integrity Drilling Fluids businesses;
Completed the sale of our investment in Proserv Group Inc.;
Generated free cash flow from operations of $180 million; and
Reduced net debt by $1.1 billion using proceeds from the divestitures and positive free cash flow from operations.

Bernard J. Duroc-Danner, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We complete 2014 having successfully achieved many of the objectives we set for ourselves a year ago. With a clear and disciplined strategy along with a highly committed management team and group of employees, we generated non-core divestiture proceeds of over $1.7 billion, significantly exceeding our target of $1.0 billion, thereby de-risking the Company substantially, ahead of a cyclically challenged year. We also significantly lowered our cost structure, achieving our goal of $500 million in annualized pre-tax savings. We showed progression on key operating and financial metrics, and we emerge a stronger and leaner company.

With a capable and focused team, we are ready to react swiftly to a dramatically changing landscape. We will adjust to a new reality by focusing on cash and cost, and re-direct the Company’s focus externally. We have a clear view of the additional measures needed to guide our Company as well as the intensity, focus and experience to navigate through the present environment.”
