Schlumberger (OP/A): Ex-hurricane, 3Q EPS ahead of expectations - Goldman Sachs - October 21, 2005

SLB recurring 3Q2005 EPS of $0.86 was in line with our estimate and consensus, but included $0.06 of hurricane impact vs our assumption of zero. On an apples basis, therefore, results were stronger with oilfield revenue ex-hurricane +4% vs our estimate and pretax income +5%. Results were stronger across all regions with Europe/ Africa/ CIS the star performer w/ revenue +8% + pretax income +16% vs expectations (PetroAlliance impact?). Oilfield incremental margins ex-hurricane of 33% /46% seq/ y-y were strong, but still have upside, in our view, particularly in N. America. Seismic revenue ex-hurricane was +17% vs our estimate and pretax profit was +45 with positive implications for BHI. Other income was also stronger = positive read across for SII. We maintain our OP/A rating with upward EPS revisions pending - $108 fair value.
