Cal Dive Reports Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: DVR

Cal Dive International, Inc. (NYSE: DVR) generated a loss for the fourth quarter 2013 of $0.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, including a $0.6 million after-tax non-cash fixed asset impairment charge. This compares to a loss in the prior year fourth quarter of $19.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, including a $4.0 million after-tax non-cash charge related to the marked-to-market adjustment of the derivative liability for the Company’s convertible debt and a $4.1 million after-tax non-cash fixed asset impairment charge. For the fourth quarter 2013, the Company reported revenues of $159.8 million and EBITDA of $17.1 million compared to revenues of $146.4 million and EBITDA of $13.5 million for the fourth quarter 2012. The increase in EBITDA is primarily due to increased Mexico activity partially offset by no activity in West Africa due to the redeployment of the DSV Texas to Mexico and lower utilization domestically due to harsher winter weather conditions compared to fourth quarter 2012.

The Company reported a full year 2013 loss of $36.6 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to a full year 2012 loss of $65.0 million, or $0.70 per diluted share. Included in these losses are non-cash after-tax impairment charges of $13.7 million during 2013 and $19.7 million during 2012. The Company reported full year 2013 EBITDA of $34.2 million compared to $23.3 million for full year 2012.

Commenting on the results, Cal Dive’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Quinn Hébert, stated, “As expected the fourth quarter was our best quarter of the year due to the ramp up in offshore work in Mexico. This increase was partially offset by harsh winter weather conditions throughout the Gulf of Mexico and lower domestic activity in part due to the re-positioning of certain assets to Mexico.

“In Mexico, we operated six assets for the Pemex projects during the fourth quarter and have completed approximately 60% of our awarded $290 million in Pemex contracts as of the end of 2013. Currently, we are operating five assets in the region as we completed the pipelay portion of three of the larger projects in January. One of the projects, our fourth award in August 2013 for $40 million, has been delayed by Pemex until the summer of 2014 due to the platform not being ready. The impact of this is expected to be a shift of revenue and profit from the fourth quarter 2013 and first quarter 2014 to the third quarter of 2014. We expect bidding activity for Pemex work to continue to be strong in the coming months.”
