Correction: Fluor Expects $400 Mln Charge On Greater Gabbard Project Arbitration

(Correction: In second paragraph, the original article incorrectly said the decision would have a material adverse impact on cash flow. A corrected version follows.)

Fluor Corp. (FLR) said it received an adverse decision from an arbitration panel on the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm Project. The company had been claiming additional compensation for schedule and cost impacts from delays, disruption and productivity issues.

As a direct impact of the panel's decision, the company expects a pre-tax charge of around $400 million in the fourth quarter. However, the decision is not expected to have a material adverse impact on cash flow.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Seaton said, "Fluor delivered a quality project, and we are extremely disappointed with this unexpected decision, especially considering recent statements that acknowledge that all 140 turbines are commissioned and exporting electricity, and the overall performance is more than 10 percent ahead of the client's expectations."
