You can hear the audio here (Bruce Wayne comes on the line at 35:50), and for those who like to follow along, a transcript:

We will now take a question from Bruce Wayne with Wayne Enterprises. Please go ahead.

Bruce Wayne – Wayne Enterprises – Analyst
Hello? Hello there.

Lars Bethuelsen – Archer Limited – SVP, M&A and IR
Hello, Bruce. We can hear you.

Bruce Wayne – Wayne Enterprises – Analyst
Hi, there. This is Bruce Wayne. I have a question for you guys. So I was wondering, given your financial situation, if you guys would be willing to invest in some technology I’m developing.

Christoph Bausch – Archer Limited – CFO
I think we will still find money if we find the right technology to invest in. I think we have a very good, on the Oil Tools side of the business, internal R&D team and so the investment is — should also be looked upon as just attracting talented engineers to continue that run.

Bruce Wayne – Wayne Enterprises – Analyst
Do you feel that you have engineers that can work my specifications, because I’m facing super-villains, so I need specific technical expertise.

Christoph Bausch – Archer Limited – CFO
I’m a little bit — there’s a big echo on the line. I’m sorry, can you repeat the question?

Bruce Wayne – Wayne Enterprises – Analyst
No, what it is is that a lot of my technology was damaged. I was obviously recently in battles with Bane, the Joker, so I just want to know if you guys can invest in some technology I’m developing.

Christoph Bausch – Archer Limited – CFO
Okay, Bruce, we are currently investing currently in technology in Oil Tools and in Wireline. We have various technologies where we’ve invested over [a] couple of years and we will continue to do so going forward. Bertrand, can you move on to the next caller, please?

    Pretty sure Wayne Enterprises is fund partially owned by SAC. Can't believe Bruce had the audacity to ask for such information when the boss is getting fisted by the feds.

    He's the shareholder Archer Limited deserves, but not the one it needs…

    Where's the transcript of the Larry Flynt Enterprises analyst asking ABInbev if they are working on a new 'Hard Dickens Cider' beverage rollout?

    So there is a chance the next movie might have a chase scene with a Zamboni driven by a bald-headed villain named Mr. Fleece through the streets of Gotham?

    The prankster after Batman sounds like he's doing a really bad Ringo Starr impression.
