CAUTIONARY STATEMENT

This press release may include “forward-looking” statements that are generally identifiable through our use of words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “project” and similar expressions and include any statements that we make regarding our earnings expectations. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this release, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise such statements to reflect new information or events as they occur. Our actual future results may differ materially due to a variety of factors, including current economic and financial market conditions, changes in commodity prices for natural gas and oil and in the level of offshore exploration, development and production activity in the oil and natural gas industry, the impact on the market and regulatory environment in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico resulting from the Macondo well blowout, our inability to obtain contracts with favorable pricing terms if there is a downturn in our business cycle, intense competition in our industry, the operational risks inherent in our business, and other risks detailed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Calculation of Earnings (Loss) Per Share
(in thousands, except per share amounts)
 

Basic earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common shares by the weighted-average shares of outstanding common stock.  The calculation of diluted EPS is similar to basic EPS, except the denominator includes dilutive common stock equivalents. The components of basic and diluted EPS for common shares for quarters and years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 were as follows:

 
 
Three Months Ended Year Ended

Numerator:
Net loss $ (8,771 ) $ (2,382 ) $ (66,897 ) $ (315,849 )
Less: Net loss allocated to unvested restricted stock (1)   -     -     -     -  
Net loss attributable to common shares $ (8,771 ) $ (2,382 ) $ (66,897 ) $ (315,849 )
 
Denominator:
Basic weighted average shares outstanding 91,785 91,130 91,742 91,067
Dilutive share-based employee compensation plan (1)   -     -     -     -  
Diluted weighted average shares outstanding   91,785     91,130     91,742     91,067  
 
Earnings (loss) per share:
Total basic $ (0.10 ) $ (0.03 ) $ (0.73 ) $ (3.47 )
Total diluted $ (0.10 ) $ (0.03 ) $ (0.73 ) $ (3.47 )
 

(1) No losses were allocated to unvested restricted shares outstanding in the computation of diluted earnings per share, because to do so would be anti-dilutive.

 
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
For the Periods Ended December 31, 2011 and 2010
(in thousands)
       

In addition to net income, one primary measure that we use to evaluate our financial performance is earnings before net interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA. We use EBITDA to measure our operational strengths and the performance of our business and not to measure our liquidity.  EBITDA does not reflect the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues, and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, net income and other measures of financial performance we report in accordance with GAAP. Furthermore, EBITDA presentations may vary among companies; thus, our EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

 

We believe EBITDA is useful as a measurement tool because it helps investors evaluate and compare our operating performance from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest charges from our outstanding debt) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization of our vessels) from our operating results. Our management uses EBITDA in communications with lenders, rating agencies and others, concerning our financial performance.

 

The following table presents a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure of our operating results:
