PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
On July 25, 2007, Technip’s (Paris:TEC) (NYSE:TKP) (ISIN:FR0000131708) Board of Directors approved the second quarter and first half 2007 consolidated accounts.
Thierry Pilenko, Chairman and CEO, commented: “Second quarter results were driven by sustained revenue growth in the SURF and the Onshore-Downstream businesses largely offsetting the expected slowdown in the Offshore Facilities segment.
The high utilization rate of our vessels at 82% confirms that the subsea business remains robust across all regions and contributes to the continuous improvement of the SURF margins. To meet the demand in the subsea market we have completed the extension of our flexible pipes manufacturing capacities in France and Brazil and our fleet extension program is on track. In the Onshore-Downstream segment where many large projects are in the construction phase, our margin ratio is stable compared to the first quarter.
We signed approximately EUR 1.7 billion of new projects in the second quarter and our backlog remains strong at EUR 9.7 billion. Most of the newly acquired backlog consists of small to medium size projects which confirms the depth of the market. Several large project awards have moved into the second half of 2007 or early 2008 and overall large opportunities continue to expand both offshore and onshore.
Our activity is not sensitive to the short term natural gas price variations and we foresee the development of several large, long-term gas related projects.
As previously announced, we will present Technip’s growth strategy during the third week of October.”

B. PROJECTS, ASSETS AND CAPEX
In the SURF business segment, ongoing projects are progressing in a satisfactory manner in all our areas. In shallow as well as deep water, the vessel utilization rates stand at a high level; they average 82% at Group level. The Agbami project is progressing according to the project schedule, with flexible pipes and umbilicals being manufacturing in Le Trait (France) and Duco in Newcastle (UK) respectively. Offshore installation campaign for flowlines and sea structures on PDET project in Brazil is currently being executed by the Deep Blue.
In the Offshore Facilities business segment, the flare structure on the Akpo FPSO in Nigeria was completed during the second quarter 2007, while the construction of the topsides is ongoing in Korea. On the Perdido Spar project for the Gulf of Mexico, engineering and procurement are progressing. On the Tahiti Spar project, Technip has identified metallurgical problems on some mooring shackles. New shackles are under manufacturing, they will replace the identified failing ones. Deep investigations are ongoing in order to identify the root causes of the metallurgical problems.
In the Onshore-Downstream business segment, a large number of projects are currently in construction phase: LNG Train 6 project in Nigeria and Otway Onshore project are in their final stage, while the projects signed in 2005 in Middle-East, Vietnam and Canada are in full execution. Tensions on construction resources remain strong, notably in the Middle-East. Within a market environment which remains favorable, many large-scale projects should be awarded in the year to come.
In the Industries business segment, projects are progressing satisfactorily.
2) Assets and Capex
Flexible manufacturing plants

As per IFRS, the Earnings Per Share or EPS (diluted Earnings per Share) is calculated by dividing profit or loss attributable to Parent Company’s Shareholders by, the weighted average number of outstanding shares during the period, plus the effect of dilutive stock options calculated according to the “Share Purchase Method” (IFRS 2), plus the average number of weighed attributed performance shares, less treasury shares. In conformity with this method, anti dilutive stock options are ignored in calculating EPS. Dilutive options are taken into account if the subscription price of the stock options plus the future IFRS 2 charge (i.e. the sum of annual charges to be recorded until the end of the plan of stock option) is lower than the share average market price during the period. For the second quarter 2007 this number of shares on a fully diluted basis stands at 105,510,784. Applying the same calculation method to the second quarter 2006, 110,465,787 shares are retained instead of the 108,863,692 shares actually computed for the EPS calculation one year ago.
Fully diluted EPS and E/ADS increased by 61.8% to EUR 0.75 and USD 1.02 compared to EUR 0.47 and USD 0.63, respectively, one year earlier according to this new dilution calculation.

Net income was EUR 147.7 million, showing a significant 92.3 % increase compared to the first half 2006 net income.
As per IFRS, the Earnings Per Share or EPS (diluted Earnings per Share) is calculated by dividing profit or loss attributable to Parent Company’s Shareholders by, the weighted average number of outstanding shares during the period, plus the effect of dilutive stock options calculated according to the “Share Purchase Method” (IFRS 2), plus the average number of weighed attributed performance shares, less treasury shares. In conformity with this method, anti dilutive stock options are ignored in calculating EPS. Dilutive options are taken into account if the subscription price of the stock options plus the future IFRS 2 charge (i.e. the sum of annual charge to be recorded until the end of the plan of stock option) is lower than the share average market price during the period. For the first half 2007 this number of shares on a fully diluted basis stands at 104,971,742. Applying the same calculation method to the first half 2006, 111,735,582 shares are retained instead of the 108,863,692 shares actually computed for the EPS calculation one year ago.

6) Cash and Balance Sheet
During the first half 2007, the net cash position was almost stable at EUR 1,502.1 million compared to EUR 1,540.3 million.

Shareholders’ equity at June 30th, 2007 was EUR 2,216.9 million, compared to EUR 2,401.3 million at December 31st, 2006. This reduction is mainly due to the dividend payment which occurred on May 3rd, 2007 for an amount of EUR 274.7 million.
