休斯顿-康菲石油公司(NYSE: COP)今天公布，2020年第三季度亏损5亿美元，或每股0.42美元，而2019年第三季度盈利31亿美元，或每股2.74美元。不包括特殊项目，2020年第三季度调整后收益为3亿美元，或每股0.31美元，而2019年第三季度调整后收益为9亿美元，或每股0.82美元。本季度的特殊项目主要是由于Cenovus Energy股权的未实现亏损，部分抵消了未决索赔和和解的有利结果。
该公司董事长兼首席执行官瑞安•兰斯(Ryan Lance)表示:“我们都知道，今年对我们的行业来说是历史性的动荡。”“康菲石油公司采取了一些谨慎的措施，包括经济驱动的减产，同时继续保持良好的基础业务。在第三季度，我们结束了我们的缩减计划，并成功地完成了我们的季节性周转。由于我们强大的资产负债表和优秀的员工队伍，我们在财务和运营上仍然处于非常有利的地位。现在我们的业务已经恢复正常，我们将专注于继续执行我们的项目，并继续推进我们与Concho Resources的交易。”
Lance continued, “The combination with Concho will make us a stronger company by enhancing the quality, scale and stakeholder appeal of ConocoPhillips’ successful value proposition, which is based on balance sheet strength, disciplined low cost of supply investments, free cash flow generation, and superior returns of and on capital – all with a visible commitment to ESG excellence. This is the winning formula for our sector and we’ll be uniquely positioned to deliver on it through the cycles of our business.”

使用非GAAP财务信息- - - - - -To supplement the presentation of the company’s financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this news release and the accompanying supplemental financial information contain certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including adjusted earnings (calculated on a consolidated and on a segment-level basis), adjusted earnings per share and cash from operations (CFO).
The company believes that the non-GAAP measures adjusted earnings (both on an aggregate and a per-share basis) are useful to investors to help facilitate comparisons of the company’s operating performance associated with the company’s core business operations across periods on a consistent basis and with the performance and cost structures of peer companies by excluding items that do not directly relate to the company’s core business operations. The company further believes that the non-GAAP measure CFO is useful to investors to help understand changes in cash provided by operating activities excluding the timing effects associated with operating working capital changes across periods on a consistent basis and with the performance of peer companies. The company believes that the above-mentioned non-GAAP measures, when viewed in combination with the company’s results prepared in accordance with GAAP, provides a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the company’s business and performance. The company’s Board of Directors and management also use these non-GAAP measures to analyze the company’s operating performance across periods when overseeing and managing the company’s business.
