2017, April, 27, 18:35:00BAKER HUGHES NET LOSS $129 MLN
Revenue for the quarter was $2.3 billion, a decrease of $148 million, or 6%, sequentially. Compared to the same quarter last year, revenue declined $408 million, or 15%. The sequential decrease in revenue was driven primarily by the deconsolidation of the North America onshore pressure pumping business, lower revenue internationally, mainly related to non-recurring year-end product sales, seasonality and price deterioration, and reduced activity in the Gulf of Mexico. This decline was partially offset by activity growth in our North America onshore business, primarily in our well construction product lines.
