Cal Dive Reports Fourth Quarter And Year End 2011 Results

Cal Dive International, Inc. (NYSE:DVR) reported a net loss for fiscal 2011 of $66.9 million, or $.73 per diluted share. This compares to a net loss of $315.8 million, or $3.47 per diluted share for fiscal 2010. The 2011 net loss includes $30.4 million ($.33 per diluted share) of after-tax non-cash impairment charges related to fixed assets while the 2010 net loss included $302.5 million ($3.32 per diluted share) in non-cash after-tax impairment charges related to fixed assets and goodwill. Excluding the impairment charges, the Company recorded a net loss of $36.5 million, or $.40 per diluted share, for 2011 compared to a net loss of $13.3 million, or $.15 per diluted share, in 2010. The increase in net loss excluding the impairment charges is primarily due to a reduced level of activity in the Gulf of Mexico in 2011 following a temporary period of elevated activity in 2010 related to cleanup efforts for the oil spill that resulted from the Macondo well blowout. Partially offsetting this decline was increased diving related work in Australia and reduced overhead costs as the result of the Company’s cost reduction efforts.

Cal Dive also reported a fourth quarter 2011 net loss of $8.8 million, or $.10 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $.03 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2010. The fourth quarter 2011 net loss includes a $1.6 million ($.02 per diluted share) after-tax non-cash impairment charge relating to an asset the Company has for sale. Aside from the impairment charge, the increased net loss for the 2011 fourth quarter is the result of lower utilization across most domestic assets compared to the same period in 2010 primarily due to harsher weather conditions in the Gulf of Mexico during December 2011, the regulatory drydock in the fourth quarter of 2011 of the Company’s most profitable asset, the DP saturation diving vessel Uncle John and higher activity in the 2010 fourth quarter from a large construction project in the Bahamas that did not re-occur in the fourth quarter 2011. Partially offsetting these decreases was increased activity in Australia and lower overhead costs.

Quinn Hébert, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cal Dive, stated, “Despite harsher than expected weather conditions in the Gulf of Mexico, our fourth quarter financial results were in line with our expectations at a level between the second and third quarters of this year. We were also very pleased with our free cash flow generated during the fourth quarter and resulting liquidity at year end. We were able to decrease our overall net debt position by over $40 million from the end of the third quarter and we had no outstanding borrowings under our revolver at year end.
