NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tidewater Inc. (NYS: TDW) announced today first quarter net earnings for the period ended June 30, 2013, of $30.1 million, or $0.61 per common share, on revenues of $334.1 million. For the same quarter last year, net earnings were $32.9 million, or $0.65 per common share, on revenues of $294.4 million. The immediately preceding quarter ended March 31, 2013, had net earnings of $46.6 million, or $0.95 per common share, on revenues of $328.3 million.

Financial results of Troms Offshore Supply AS are included in the current quarter from June 4, 2013, the date of the acquisition, through June 30, 2013.
