McDermott Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Earnings per share of 21 cents; Strong $5.3 Billion Backlog

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- McDermott International, Inc. (NYS: MDR) ("McDermott" or the "Company") today reported income of $50.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the 2012 third quarter. The results of the 2012 third quarter compare to income from continuing operations of $9.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the corresponding period of 2011. Weighted average common shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis were approximately 237.9 million and 236.9 million in the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.


McDermott's revenues were $1,028.7 million for the 2012 third quarter compared to $879.9 million in the corresponding period of 2011. The year-over-year increase was attributable to the Middle East and Atlantic segments, primarily due to increased fabrication and marine activity. The increase from these segments was partially offset by lower revenues in the Asia Pacific segment due to lower marine activity.

The Company's operating income in the 2012 third quarter was $82.5 million compared to $35.2 million in the 2011 third quarter. The increase in operating income was primarily due to approximately $50 million in project losses recognized in the 2011 third quarter, in addition to higher fabrication and marine activity in the Middle East and Atlantic segments and additional change order activity in the Asia Pacific segment in the 2012 third quarter.

"The positive results of our 2012 third quarter keep us on track for a solid 2012 financial performance," said Stephen M. Johnson, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of McDermott. "We see continued strength in our end markets and are encouraged by the significant level of bids and targeted market opportunities."

The Company's other income for the third quarter of 2012 was $1.7 million, which represents an improvement of $1.3 million as compared to other income of $0.4 million in the third quarter of 2011 primarily attributable to increased interest income.

At September 30, 2012, the Company's backlog was approximately $5.3 billion, compared to $5.7 billion and $4.3 billion at June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.

Balance Sheet Summary

As of September 30, 2012, McDermott reported total assets of approximately $3.4 billion. Included in this amount was $720.7 million of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and investments. Net working capital, calculated as current assets less current liabilities, was $679.4 million. Additionally, total equity was over $1.9 billion, or approximately 57% of total assets, with total debt of $108.3 million.
