Abstract

KBR (Kellogg, Brown and Root), the engineering and construction unit of Halliburton was formed as a series of mergers between companies like Dresser industries, Brown and Root, and MW Kellogg. KBR enjoyed leadership status in many areas of its operations. But the lacklustre financial performance of KBR along with different controversies resulted in Halliburton share trading much below expectations. The case analyses operational, as well as financial synergies, among the different units of Halliburton as well as the trade off between the positives and negatives of KBR. The case concludes with an open-ended question, on whether Halliburton should divest KBR or function as a single entity.
