Ensco Plc Reports Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2012 Results

Other

Other is composed of managed drilling rig operations. Revenues decreased to $20 million from $22 million in fourth quarter 2011 due to a $12,000 decline in average day rates. Contract drilling expense was $15 million, compared to $19 million a year ago. The decreases in average day rate and contract drilling expense are related to declining crew requirements year to year.

Strong Financial Position – 31 December 2012

Ensco maintained a strong financial position:

  • $10 billion of contracted revenue backlog excluding bonus opportunities
  • Long-term debt-to-capital ratio of 29%
  • $1.9 billion of available revolving credit facilities
  • $487 million of cash and cash equivalents

EVP and Chief Financial Officer Jay Swent commented, “Capital expenditures for full-year 2012 totaled $1.8 billion of which $1.3 billion, or 72%, was invested in new construction. These investments, coupled with $1.9 billion of remaining contractual commitments for rigs being constructed through 2014, will propel the future growth of our company. We also continued to high-grade our fleet by selling two additional rigs in the fourth quarter.”
