Wisconsin-based company $BGG said retail sell-throughs improved in the latter portion of June and into July in North America and Europe such that elevated inventories at the end of FY16 are reducing to more normal levels, particularly in the US. In the US, the market for commercial lawn and garden products grew during 4Q16.

$SLB plans to tackle this year's activity growth without raising CapEx, as it has started  to benefit from increased asset utilization. With the counter-cyclical business development program being completed, Schlumberger will now shift focus to project execution. It has also been decided to maintain dividends at the current level for another year.

$SLB has initiated reactivation of equipment to tap the growth potential outside the US. The process will result in an increase in short-term costs, which the company expects to absorb in 1Q18. Schlumberger expects the decline in EPS in 1Q18 to be 2-3% more than the normal seasonal dip, due to the large size of its business in Russia and North Sea.

$SLB said a reduction in tax rate, pursuant to the tax reform, will offset the effect of an estimated 2-3% rise in its effective tax rate this year, due to higher profitability in N. America. The company attributed the $3Bil pre-tax charge incurred in 4Q17 to its exit from the seismic acquisition business and write-down of investments in Venezuela.

$SLB’s 4Q17 revenue growth was driven mainly by a 40% upturn in the Production Group. The Cameron Group registered a 5% growth to $1.41Bil, and Drilling Group revenues advanced 8% to $2.2Bil. Meanwhile, Reservoir and Characterization Group saw revenues falling 2% to $1.64Bil. Region-wise, North America continued to top the list with a 59% growth.

Excluding the charge, Schlumberger posted a 78% growth in earnings to $0.48 per share, which exceeded expectations. The upturn was supported by a 15% rise in revenues to $8.2Bil.
