to discuss this matter.
KBR operates as an engineering, construction and services company,
supporting the energy, hydrocarbons, power, minerals, civil
infrastructure, government services, industrial and commercial market
segments. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period
defendants issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to

and prospects. Specifically, defendants misrepresented and/or failed to

The Company's revenue and financialresults were overstated as a
result of accounting errors in timing the recognition of revenues and
from understating its income tax provision.
The Company's financial statements were not prepared in accordance
with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
The Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls.
As a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial statements were
materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On May 5, 2014, KBR announced that the Audit Committee of the Company's
Board of Directors concluded that KBR's previously issued consolidated
financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013, should no
longer be relied upon and should be restated. KBR determined that the
estimated costs to complete seven Canadian pipe fabrication and module
assembly contracts that were awarded during 2012-2013 will result in
pre-tax charges of more than $150 million, including the reversal
of more than $20 million in previously recognized pre-tax profits. The
Company further announced that it intends to restate its consolidated
financial statement for fiscal 2013, and will postpone filing its Form
10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2014, until after the amended Form
10-K for 2013 is complete. As a result of this news, KBR shares declined
$1.61, nearly 7%, to close on May 5, 2014, at $24.23 per share, on
unusually heavy volume.
