KBR gets extension of General Engineering Services contract with Saudi Aramco

KBR announced that its Saudi Arabian joint venture engineering operation, KBR-AMCDE, has signed an amendment to extend its existing General Engineering Services Plus Contract with Saudi Aramco. Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide front-end engineering design, detailed design, material procurement, and project management services to support Saudi Aramco's capital programs in Saudi Arabia. This amendment will extend the contract from an initial five years for a further five years with options for additional extensions. The contract will be executed by KBR-AMCDE using resources located within its Saudi Arabia offices and focus on the development and utilization of local talent throughout the execution phases. Revenue associated with this project was undisclosed and will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Engineering & Construction Business Segment as purchase orders are issued under the contract.

KBR upgraded to Buy on valuation, defense spending at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded KBR to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $20 from $16. Analyst Anna Kaminskaya expects structurally higher defense spending to drive a re-rating in KBR and sees less risk of cost overruns in the E&C business given lower reliance on fixed priced contracts and diversification into smaller sized service projects.

KBR upgraded to Buy from Neutral on rebranding efforts at MKM Partners
