Baker Hughes Swings To Quarterly Loss Due To Restructuring Charges

  • The company reported an adjusted EPS of $0.26, beating the consensus of $0.25 in Q3 FY22.
  • Sales came at $5.4 billion, up 6% sequentially and 5% Y/Y.
  • Cash flows generated from operating activities were $597 million for the quarter. Free cash flow was $417 million.

  • Revenue from its Oilfield Equipment unit dipped 7% year-over-year, driven partly by lower volumes in its Subsea Production Systems business. The Turbomachinery & Process Solutions revenue declined 8% over that period amid lower equipment and project volumes.
