McDermott Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Establish Subsea Division

In order to improve the Company’s project bidding and execution capabilities in its newer subsea end-market, the Company has established a separate subsea division, led by a seasoned industry team recruited primarily from outside McDermott. The team is to have oversight responsibility for the Company’s subsea assets and existing subsea-related projects and to assist the Company in identifying, mitigating and pricing project execution risks. While this division is still maturing, the Company believes it to be a source of future profitable growth and an area in which McDermott can solidify a meaningful market presence.

Geographic Market Focus

McDermott is refocusing on geographic markets in which it has the scale, expertise and relationships to secure a competitive advantage. In the 2013 second quarter, the Company launched a geographic market focus initiative intended to discontinue bidding activities where it cannot forecast sufficiently attractive return potential. Initially, the Company has decided to exit the Morgan City facility and a joint venture, and it plans to continue its review of target markets.

Contract Backlog Summary

At June 30, 2013, the Company’s backlog was approximately $5.1 billion, compared to $5.3 billion at March 31, 2013. Of the June 30, 2013 backlog, approximately $375.1 million was derived from three projects that are currently in a loss position, of which 98 percent relate to the project in the Asia Pacific segment and a five-year charter in Brazil. In addition, the backlog includes approximately $211.9 million for one project under deferred profit recognition.

Balance Sheet Summary

As of June 30, 2013, McDermott reported total assets of approximately $3.2 billion. Included in this amount was $473.2 million of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and investments. Net working capital, calculated as current assets less current liabilities, was $349.8 million. In addition, total equity was $1.8 billion, or approximately 55% of total assets, with total debt of $95.6 million.
