(Reuters) – Oilfield services provider Halliburton Co (HAL.N) reported a 32% slump in quarterly profit on Monday, hit by a slowdown in shale drilling in North America, its biggest market.
Net profit attributable to Halliburton fell to $295 million, or 34 cents per share, in the third quarter ended Sept. 30, from $435 million, or 50 cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue fell 10% to $5.55 billion.
