CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” intended to qualify for the safe harbors from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than statements of historical fact contained in this report are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Forward-looking statements usually relate to future events and anticipated revenues, earnings, cash flows or other aspects of our operations or operating results. Forward-looking statements are often identified by the words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “intend,” “foresee,” “should,” “would,” “could,” “may,” “estimate,” “outlook” and similar expressions, including the negative thereof. The absence of these words, however, does not mean that the statements are not forward-looking. These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations, beliefs and assumptions concerning future developments and business conditions and their potential effect on us. While management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made, there can be no assurance that future developments affecting us will be those that we anticipate.
All of our forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties (some of which are significant or beyond our control) and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from our historical experience and our present expectations or projections. Known material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in the forward-looking statements include those set forth in Part II, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014, as well as the following:
Demand for our systems and services, which is affected by changes in the price of, and demand for, crude oil and natural gas in domestic and international markets;
Potential liabilities arising out of the installation or use of our systems;
U.S. and international laws and regulations, including environmental regulations, that may increase our costs, limit the demand for our products and services or restrict our operations;
Disruptions in the political, regulatory, economic and social conditions of the countries in which we conduct business;
Fluctuations in currency markets worldwide;
Cost overruns that may affect profit realized on our fixed price contracts;
Disruptions in the timely delivery of our backlog and its effect on our future sales, profitability and our relationships with our customers;
The cumulative loss of major contracts or alliances;
Rising costs and availability of raw materials;
A failure of our information technology infrastructure or any significant breach of security;
Our ability to develop and implement new technologies and services, as well as our ability to protect and maintain critical intellectual property assets;
The outcome of uninsured claims and litigation against us;
Deterioration in future expected profitability or cash flows and its effect on our goodwill;
Continuing consolidation within our customers’ industries; and
Downgrade in the ratings of our debt could restrict our ability to access the debt capital markets.
We wish to caution you not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any of our forward-looking statements after the date they are made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by law.

FMC TECHNOLOGIES, INC. AND CONSOLIDATED SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
NOTE 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of FMC Technologies, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries (“FMC Technologies”) have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) pertaining to interim financial information. As permitted under those rules, certain footnotes or other financial information that are normally required by GAAP have been condensed or omitted. Therefore, these statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, and notes thereto, which are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.
Prior to 2015, the income taxes financial statement line item in cash provided by operating activities on the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows historically included changes during the reporting period attributable to income taxes receivables and payables and current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities. Beginning in the first quarter of 2015, amounts attributable to current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities are now presented in the other assets and liabilities, net financial statement line item. All prior-year amounts have been revised to conform to the current year presentation.
Our accounting policies are in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with these accounting principles requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Ultimate results could differ from our estimates.
In the opinion of management, the statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of our financial condition and operating results as of and for the periods presented. Revenue, expenses, assets and liabilities can vary during each quarter of the year. Therefore, the results and trends in these statements may not be representative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2015.
NOTE 2. NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
Effective January 1, 2015, we adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2015-01, “Simplifying Income Statement Presentation by Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items” which eliminates from GAAP the concept of extraordinary items. However, the presentation and disclosure guidance for items that are unusual in nature or infrequent in occurrence was retained. We adopted the updated guidance prospectively. The adoption of this update concerns presentation and disclosure only as it relates to our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers.” This update requires an entity to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The ASU will supersede most existing GAAP related to revenue recognition and will supersede some cost guidance in existing GAAP related to construction-type and production-type contract accounting. Additionally, the ASU will significantly increase disclosures related to revenue recognition. In July 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of this ASU, and as a result, the amendments are now effective for us on January 1, 2018. Early adoption is permitted to the original effective date of January 1, 2017. Entities are permitted to apply the amendments either retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the ASU recognized at the date of initial application. We have not determined the method to be utilized upon adoption. The impacts that adoption of the ASU is expected to have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures are being evaluated. Additionally, we have not determined the effect of the ASU on our internal control over financial reporting or other changes in business practices and processes.

8


In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-02, “Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis.” This update amends the criteria for determining whether a limited partnership or similar entity is a variable interest entity, eliminates the presumption in the voting model that a general partner controls a limited partnership, eliminates the deferral of ASU 2009-17 for investments in certain investment funds, removes three of the six criteria a fee must meet for a decision maker or service provider to conclude a fee does not represent a variable interest, alters how variable interests held by related parties affect consolidation, and clarifies the two-step process to determine whether the at-risk equity holders of a corporation have the power to direct the corporation’s significant activities. The amendments in this ASU are effective for us on January 1, 2016. Early application is permitted. We believe the adoption of this guidance will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position or results of operations.
In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, “Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs.” This update requires debt issuance costs to be presented in the balance sheet as a deduction from the carrying amount of the corresponding debt liability, consistent with debt discounts or premiums. The amendments in this ASU are effective for us on January 1, 2016. Early application is permitted, and a retrospective application is required. We believe the adoption of this guidance will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position or results of operations.
In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-05, “Customer’s Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement.” This update provides guidance on the recognition of fees paid by a customer for cloud computing arrangements as either the acquisition of a software license or a service contract. The amendments in this ASU are effective for us on January 1, 2016. Early application is permitted. Entities may apply the new guidance either prospectively to all arrangements entered into or materially modified after the effective date or retrospectively. We are currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on our consolidated financial statements.
In May 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-07, “Disclosures for Investments in Certain Entities That Calculate Net Asset Value per Share (or Its Equivalent).” This update removes the requirement to categorize within the fair value hierarchy all investments for which fair value is measured using the net asset value per share practical expedient and removes certain related disclosure requirements. The amendments in this ASU are effective for us on January 1, 2016. Early application is permitted. We believe the adoption of this guidance concerns disclosure only and will not have an impact on our consolidated financial position or results of operations.

NOTE 4. RESTRUCTURING AND OTHER CHARGES
As a result of the downturn in the energy market and its corresponding impact on our businesses, we initiated a company-wide reduction in workforce intended to reduce costs and better align our workforce with activity levels, which resulted in the recognition of severance costs relating to termination benefits and other restructuring charges.

NOTE 7. EQUITY METHOD INVESTMENTS
FMC Technologies Offshore, LLC (“FTO Services”) is an affiliated company in the form of a joint venture between FMC Technologies and Edison Chouest Offshore LLC. FTO Services provides integrated vessel-based subsea services for offshore oil and gas fields globally, and its results are reported in our Subsea Technologies segment. Our cumulative cash investment in FTO Services totaled $5.0 million as of June 30, 2015. We have accounted for our 50% investment using the equity method of accounting. Additionally, debt obligations under a revolving credit facility of FTO Services are jointly and severally guaranteed by FMC Technologies and Edison Chouest Offshore LLC. Refer to Note 16 for additional information regarding the guarantee.
FTO Services has experienced net losses since formation due to expenses related to startup of operations and as a result of the downturn in the oilfield services industry. We recognized $10.1 million and $18.4 million of losses from equity earnings in affiliates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, which are included in lease and other income in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of income. All prior year results were not material. The carrying value of our equity method investment in FTO Services was $(20.0) million as of June 30, 2015, and is included as a component of other liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. As a result of our joint guarantee of FTO Services’ debt obligations under its revolving credit facility, we recognized losses up to our joint share of such obligations and suspended equity method accounting during the three months ended June 30, 2015. As of June 30, 2015, approximately $3.0 million of losses from equity in earnings of affiliates were not recognized.

(1) 
Committed credit available under our revolving credit facility provided the ability to refinance our commercial paper obligations on a long-term basis. As we have both the ability and intent to refinance these obligations on a long-term basis, our commercial paper borrowings were classified as long-term in the condensed consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014. As of June 30, 2015, our commercial paper borrowings had a weighted average interest rate of 0.56%.
NOTE 9. INCOME TAXES
Our income tax provisions for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, reflected effective tax rates of 34.1% and 32.2%, respectively. The year-over-year increase in the effective tax rate was primarily due to a settlement of an Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) audit, partially offset by a favorable change in the forecasted country mix of earnings.
Our income tax provisions for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, reflected effective tax rates of 26.6% and 32.6%, respectively. The year-over-year decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily due to a favorable change in the forecasted country mix of earnings and an increase in earnings from foreign operations indefinitely reinvested outside the United States, partially offset by a settlement of an IRS audit. As of January 1, 2015, we changed our position on earnings from foreign operations as indefinitely reinvested due to increased cash demands outside the United States.
Our effective tax rate can fluctuate depending on our country mix of earnings, since our foreign earnings are generally subject to lower tax rates than in the United States. In certain jurisdictions, primarily Singapore and Malaysia, our tax rate is significantly less than the relevant statutory rate due to tax holidays.

NOTE 12. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
Under the Amended and Restated FMC Technologies, Inc. Incentive Compensation and Stock Plan (the “Plan”), we have primarily granted awards in the form of nonvested stock units (also known as restricted stock units in the plan document). We recognize compensation expense and the corresponding tax benefits for awards under the Plan. Stock-based compensation expense for nonvested stock units was $11.8 million and $9.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and $31.6 million and $27.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
During the six months ended June 30, 2015, we granted the following restricted stock units to employees:

_______________________  
*
Assumes grant date expected payout
For current-year performance-based awards, actual payouts may vary from zero to 492 thousand shares, contingent upon our performance relative to a peer group of companies with respect to earnings growth and return on investment for the year ending December 31, 2015. Compensation cost is measured based on the current expected outcome of the performance conditions and may be adjusted until the performance period ends.
For current-year market-based awards, actual payouts may vary from zero to 246 thousand shares, contingent upon our performance relative to the same peer group of companies with respect to total shareholder return (“TSR”) for a three year period ending December 31, 2017. The payout for the TSR metric is determined based on our performance relative to the peer group. A payout is possible regardless of whether our TSR for the three year period is positive or negative. However, if our TSR for the three year period is not positive, the payout with respect to TSR is limited to the target previously established by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Compensation cost for these awards is calculated using the grant date fair market value, as estimated using a Monte Carlo simulation, and is not subject to change based on future events.
NOTE 13. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
There were no cash dividends declared during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014.

We repurchased $91.6 million and $72.0 million of common stock during the six months ended June 30, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively, under the authorized repurchase program. In February 2015, the Board of Directors authorized an extension of our repurchase program by 15.0 million shares. As of June 30, 2015, our Board of Directors had authorized 90.0 million shares of common stock under our share repurchase program, and approximately 20.8 million shares of common stock remained available for purchase, which may be executed from time to time in the open market. We intend to hold repurchased shares in treasury for general corporate purposes, including issuances under our stock-based compensation plan. Treasury shares are accounted for using the cost method.

NOTE 14. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
We hold derivative financial instruments for the purpose of hedging the risks of certain identifiable and anticipated transactions. The types of risks hedged are those relating to the variability of future earnings and cash flows caused by movements in foreign currency exchange rates. We hold the following types of derivative instruments:
Foreign exchange rate forward contracts—The purpose of these instruments is to hedge the risk of changes in future cash flows of anticipated purchase or sale commitments denominated in foreign currencies. At June 30, 2015, we held the following material positions:

Foreign exchange rate instruments embedded in purchase and sale contracts—The purpose of these instruments is to match offsetting currency payments and receipts for particular projects, or comply with government restrictions on the currency used to purchase goods in certain countries.

The purpose of our foreign currency hedging activities is to manage the volatility associated with anticipated foreign currency purchases and sales created in the normal course of business. Our policy is to hold derivatives only for the purpose of hedging risks and not for trading purposes where the objective is solely to generate profit. Generally, we enter into hedging relationships such that changes in the fair values or cash flows of the transactions being hedged are expected to be offset by corresponding changes in the fair value of the derivatives. For derivative instruments that qualify as a cash flow hedge, the effective portion of the gain or loss of the derivative, which does not include the time value component of a forward currency rate, is reported as a component of other comprehensive income (“OCI”) and reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the hedged transaction affects earnings.

15


The following table of all outstanding derivative instruments is based on estimated fair value amounts that have been determined using available market information and commonly accepted valuation methodologies. Refer to Note 15 for further disclosures related to the fair value measurement process. Accordingly, the estimates may not be indicative of the gains or losses we may ultimately incur when these contracts settle or mature.

We recognized losses of $3.7 million and $0.5 million on cash flow hedges for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and losses of $4.6 million and $0.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, as a result of the discontinuance of cash flow hedges because it was probable that the original forecasted transaction would not occur or would not occur by the originally specified time period. Cash flow hedges of forecasted transactions, net of tax, resulted in an accumulated other comprehensive loss of $61.4 million and $77.3 million at June 30, 2015, and December 31, 2014, respectively. We expect to transfer an approximate $36.7 million loss from accumulated OCI to earnings during the next 12 months when the anticipated transactions actually occur. All anticipated transactions currently being hedged are expected to occur by the end of 2016.

Balance Sheet Offsetting—We execute derivative contracts only with counterparties that consent to a master netting agreement which permits net settlement of the gross derivative assets against gross derivative liabilities. Each instrument is accounted for individually and assets and liabilities are not offset. As of June 30, 2015, and December 31, 2014, we had no collateralized derivative contracts. The following tables present both gross information and net information of recognized derivative instruments:

Investments—The fair value measurement of our equity securities, fixed income and other investment assets is based on quoted prices that we have the ability to access in public markets. Our stable value fund and money market fund are valued at the net asset value of the shares held at the end of the quarter, which is based on the fair value of the underlying investments using information reported by the investment advisor at quarter-end.

18


Derivative financial instruments—We use the income approach as the valuation technique to measure the fair value of foreign currency derivative instruments on a recurring basis. This approach calculates the present value of the future cash flow by measuring the change from the derivative contract rate and the published market indicative currency rate, multiplied by the contract notional values. Credit risk is then incorporated by reducing the derivative’s fair value in asset positions by the result of multiplying the present value of the portfolio by the counterparty’s published credit spread. Portfolios in a liability position are adjusted by the same calculation; however, a spread representing our credit spread is used. Our credit spread, and the credit spread of other counterparties not publicly available are approximated by using the spread of similar companies in the same industry, of similar size and with the same credit rating.
At the present time, we have no credit-risk-related contingent features in our agreements with the financial institutions that would require us to post collateral for derivative positions in a liability position.
See Note 14 for additional disclosure related to derivative financial instruments.
Fair value of debt—The fair value, based on Level 1 quoted market rates, of our 2.00% Notes due 2017 and 3.45% Notes due 2022 (collectively, “Senior Notes”) was approximately $781.3 million at June 30, 2015 and approximately $779.5 million at December 31, 2014, as compared to the $800.0 million face value of the debt, net of issue discounts, recorded in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Other fair value disclosures—The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables, accounts payable, short-term debt, commercial paper, debt associated with our term loan, as well as amounts included in other current assets and other current liabilities that meet the definition of financial instruments, approximate fair value.
Credit risk—By their nature, financial instruments involve risk, including credit risk, for non-performance by counterparties. Financial instruments that potentially subject us to credit risk primarily consist of trade receivables and derivative contracts. We manage the credit risk on financial instruments by transacting only with what management believes are financially secure counterparties, requiring credit approvals and credit limits, and monitoring counterparties’ financial condition. Our maximum exposure to credit loss in the event of non-performance by the counterparty is limited to the amount drawn and outstanding on the financial instrument. Allowances for losses on trade receivables are established based on collectability assessments. We mitigate credit risk on derivative contracts by executing contracts only with counterparties that consent to a master netting agreement which permits the net settlement of gross derivative assets against gross derivative liabilities.

19


NOTE 16. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES
Contingent liabilities associated with guarantees—In the ordinary course of business with customers, vendors and others, we issue standby letters of credit, performance bonds, surety bonds and other guarantees. The majority of these financial instruments represent guarantees of our future performance.
In August 2014, FMC Technologies entered into an arrangement to guarantee the debt obligations under a revolving credit facility of FMC Technologies Offshore, LLC (“FTO Services”), our joint venture with Edison Chouest Offshore LLC. Under the terms of the guarantee, FMC Technologies and Edison Chouest Offshore LLC jointly and severally guaranteed amounts under the revolving credit facility with a maximum potential amount of future payments of $40.0 million that would become payable if FTO Services defaults in payment under the terms of the revolving credit facility. The approximate term of the guarantee is two years. The liability recognized at inception for the fair value of our obligation as a guarantor was not material, and we expect our future performance under the guarantee to be remote.
Management does not expect any of these financial instruments to result in losses that, if incurred, would have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Contingent liabilities associated with legal matters—We are involved in various pending or potential legal actions in the ordinary course of our business. Management is unable to predict the ultimate outcome of these actions, because of the inherent uncertainty of litigation. However, management believes that the most probable, ultimate resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Contingent liabilities associated with liquidated damages—Some of our contracts contain penalty provisions that require us to pay liquidated damages if we are responsible for the failure to meet specified contractual milestone dates and the applicable customer asserts a conforming claim under these provisions. These contracts define the conditions under which our customers may make claims against us for liquidated damages. Based upon the evaluation of our performance and other commercial and legal analysis, management believes we have appropriately accrued for probable liquidated damages at June 30, 2015, and December 31, 2014, and that the ultimate resolution of such matters will not materially affect our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows for the year ending December 31, 2015.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Business Outlook
Overall Outlook. Although crude oil prices are above their recent low during the first quarter of 2015, uncertainty regarding the short-term market fundamentals remains. This uncertainty is driven by multiple factors, including continued strength in U.S. oil production and international crude oil supply, especially from OPEC’s decision to maintain oil production levels to retain or increase its market share. However, recent crude oil inventory builds have started to slow as demand has risen. As a result of the weaker crude oil price environment, many crude oil development prospects have been deferred, leading to a downturn in demand for our products and services and an overall weaker demand for oilfield services. Although the timing of the recovery of crude oil prices is dependent on many variables, including any decisions by various countries to lift oil sanctions on Iran which could further negatively affect crude oil prices, we believe as long-term demand rises and production naturally declines, commodity prices will recover and our customers will begin to increase their investments in new sources of oil production.
Subsea Technologies. In reaction to the decline in crude oil prices over the last year, many of our customers reduced their capital spending plans for 2015 or deferred new projects. These actions are having an adverse effect on our 2015 inbound orders when compared to the prior year. However, our focus on execution and our strong subsea backlog resulted in continued margin strength during the second quarter of 2015. Given our lower full-year 2015 inbound orders expectations, our focus throughout the remainder of 2015 will be the continued concentration on standardization, process improvement, cost reductions, and supply chain management. Additionally, the latter half of 2015 will reflect the reduction and leveraging of our workforce to maintain operating margin improvements and to align our operations with anticipated decreases in future year activity due to delayed subsea project inbound. A large part of our efforts are focused on ways to improve customer returns by offering cost-effective approaches to our customers’ project developments, including customer acceptance of new technologies and alternative business models to help achieve their cost-reduction goals and accelerate time to first oil. Many customers, including our alliance customers, are actively exploring ways to utilize our standardized subsea production equipment as operators understand the cost and scheduling benefits that standardization brings to their projects.
In the long-term, we continue to believe deepwater development will remain a significant part of our customers’ portfolios. A critical part of our long-term strategy to maintain our subsea market leadership is to continue to invest in the technologies required to develop our customers’ challenging fields and further expand our capabilities focused on increasing reservoir production over the life of the field.
Surface Technologies. With the decline in crude oil prices, we expected a decline in rig counts and decreased North American land activity in 2015 which would negatively affect all of our surface technologies businesses in North America. However, customer spending reductions, coupled with increased pricing pressure, have had a greater impact than in past downturns. This market environment led us to take significant actions to reduce headcount in our North American businesses in the first half of the year. Although difficult to predict the length of depressed crude oil prices, specifically its impacts on the down cycle in shale, we expect that crude oil prices in 2016 may increase to a level to allow some recovery in North American activity. Throughout the remainder of 2015, we expect continued efforts to integrate our North American surface wellhead and completion services businesses to strengthen our market presence and bring increased value to our customers. We expect this continued integration effort to lead to further consolidation of some of our facilities, and consequently, additional reductions of our workforce as we realize operating efficiencies. Despite the current crude oil price environment, our international surface wellhead business delivered solid operational results in the second quarter of 2015 due to its strong backlog. Although we expect continued strength in international markets throughout the remainder of the year, we continue to gauge the need for any workforce reductions in the event of any significant declines in international order activity.

Revenue decreased $290.1 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the prior-year quarter. Revenue in the second quarter of 2015 included a $180.8 million unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation. Overall, our Subsea Technologies revenue was relatively flat year-over-year. Revenue increased in our Asia Pacific business due to project backlog conversion but was offset by decreased revenue in our Brazil and Eastern Region subsea businesses primarily from foreign currency translation. Surface Technologies posted decreased revenue year-over-year in our fluid control, completion services, and surface wellhead businesses primarily from lower market activity in North America.
Gross profit (revenue less cost of sales) decreased as a percentage of sales to 23.5% in the second quarter of 2015, from 24.1% in the prior-year quarter. The decline in gross profit as a percentage of sales was due to our Surface Technologies segment which realized lower gross profit margins year-over-year in our fluid control, completion services, and North American surface wellhead businesses from lower market activity in North America. Subsea Technologies posted higher gross profit as a percentage of sales primarily in our Western Region and Asia Pacific subsea businesses from higher margin project backlog conversion and higher margin volumes in Western Region subsea services.
Selling, general and administrative expense decreased $24.1 million year-over-year, resulting from costs associated with terminating a representative agreement in the second quarter of 2014 and foreign currency translation.
Information regarding restructuring expenses incurred during the second quarter of 2015 is incorporated herein by reference from Note 4 to our condensed consolidated financial statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
During the second quarter of 2014, we recognized an $85.6 million gain on the sale of our Material Handling Products business. Further information of the sale is incorporated herein by reference from Note 5 to our condensed consolidated financial statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Other income (expense), net during the second quarter of 2015 included an unrealized foreign currency loss of $15.3 million.

24


Our income tax provisions for the second quarter of 2015 and 2014 reflected effective tax rates of 34.1% and 32.2%, respectively. The year-over-year increase in the effective tax rate was primarily due to a settlement of an IRS audit, partially offset by a favorable change in the forecasted country mix of earnings. Our effective tax rate can fluctuate depending on our country mix of earnings since our foreign earnings are generally subject to lower tax rates than in the United States. In certain jurisdictions, primarily Singapore and Malaysia, our tax rate is significantly less than the relevant statutory rate due to tax holidays. The cumulative balance of foreign earnings for which no provision for U.S. income taxes has been recorded was $1,816 million at June 30, 2015. We would need to accrue and pay U.S. tax on such undistributed earnings if these funds were repatriated. We have no current intention to repatriate these earnings.
