Tidewater Reports Third Quarter Results For Fiscal 2013

Stocks in this article: TDW

Tidewater Inc. (NYSE:TDW) announced today third quarter earnings for the period ended December 31, 2012, of $29.9 million, or $0.61 per share, on revenues of $309.5 million. For the same quarter last year, net earnings of $34.1 million was reported, or $0.67 per share, on revenues of $272.1 million. The immediately preceding quarter ended September 30, 2012, had net earnings of $41.4 million, or $0.83 per share, on revenues of $311.9 million, which included approximately $7.4 million of vessel revenue associated with retroactive rate increases agreed to during the September 2012 quarter, but related to the period from January 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012.

Included in the current fiscal quarter’s general and administrative expenses is a $5.2 million settlement loss charge ($3.4 million after tax, or $0.07 per share) related to the lump sum supplemental executive retirement plan distribution made in the December 2012 quarter to the Company’s former President and Chief Executive Officer who retired earlier in the year. The settlement loss is the result of the recognition of heretofore unrecognized actuarial losses that were being amortized over time to pension expense. As a result of the December 2012 lump sum distribution, a portion of the previously unrecognized actuarial losses was required to be recognized in earnings in the current quarter in accordance with ASC 715. Included in the prior fiscal year third quarter’s net earnings is an $8.4 million, or $0.16 per share, reversal of income tax liabilities originally established for uncertain tax positions as a result of the expiration of various statutes of limitations.
