McDermott Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: MDR

McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE: MDR) (“McDermott” or the “Company”) today reported a net loss of $149.4 million, or $0.63 per fully diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. These results compared to income of $52.7 million, or $0.22 per fully diluted share, in the corresponding period of 2012. Weighted average common shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis were approximately 236.2 million and 237.5 million in the quarters ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

McDermott’s revenues were $647.3 million for the 2013 second quarter compared to $889.2 million in the corresponding period of 2012. The year-over-year decrease was attributable to the Middle East and Asia Pacific segments, primarily due to the completion of several significant projects that were active in the 2012 second quarter. The decrease from these segments was partially offset by higher revenues in the Atlantic segment due to higher fabrication activity in Mexico. The Company’s operating loss in the 2013 second quarter was $149.5 million compared to operating income of $79.4 million in the 2012 second quarter.

Project Challenges

Additional project-related charges on two projects discussed last quarter resulted in operating losses in the Asia Pacific and Middle East segments. In the Asia Pacific segment, the Company increased its loss estimates by $62.0 million due to delays on a deepwater pipelay project in Malaysia. Late deliveries from suppliers and a prolonged reconfiguration of one of the Company’s marine vessels pushed the project’s installation plan into the monsoon season. As a result, the Company now plans to execute the offshore work in two separate campaigns in 2013 and 2014, to utilize additional third-party support vessels, and has accrued liquidated damages. The Company expects to complete the project in the second quarter 2014.

In addition, the Middle East segment’s results were impacted by a $38.0 million charge to one project in Saudi Arabia. The charge reflects an estimated increase in the Company’s vessel mobilization costs to complete an extended offshore hookup campaign. Inclusive of the second quarter charges, the project remains in an overall profitable position and is expected to be completed by mid-2014. Two of the other loss projects reported last quarter have now been completed.
