"During the first quarter of 2018, Diamond recorded earnings per share of 14 cents," said Marc Edwards, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Despite the continuing challenges in the offshore drilling market, we were able to secure additional work for the Ocean Apex and the Ocean BlackRhino, and were awarded new work for the Ocean Endeavor. We continue to have strong interest from prospective clients for our industry leading fleet."  

Diamond Offshore recently launched the industry's first cybernetic BOP service, Sim-Stack, which allows the Company to further reduce subsea downtime and create additional efficiencies for our clients. Edwards continued, "This is another example of Diamond's thought leadership and innovation that enables additional differentiation of our 6th generation assets."

As of March 31, 2018, the Company's total contracted backlog was $2.2 billion, which represents 19 rig years of work.

(1)

Average dayrate is defined as contract drilling revenue for all of the specified rigs in our fleet per revenue-earning day.  A revenue-earning day is defined as a 24-hour period during which a rig earns a dayrate after commencement of operations and excludes mobilization, demobilization and contract preparation days.



(2)

Utilization is calculated as the ratio of total revenue-earning days divided by the total calendar days in the period for all specified rigs in our fleet (including cold-stacked rigs).  Our current fleet includes four floaters that are cold stacked. 



(3)

Operational efficiency is calculated as the ratio of total revenue-earning days divided by the sum of total revenue-earning days plus the number of days (or portions thereof) associated with unanticipated equipment downtime.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

To supplement the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, this press release provides investors with adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures.  Management believes that these measures provide meaningful information about the Company's performance by excluding certain charges that may not be indicative of the Company's ongoing operating results.  This allows investors and others to better compare the company's financial results across previous and subsequent accounting periods and to those of peer companies and to better understand the long-term performance of the Company.  Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered to be a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  

In order to fully assess the financial operating results of the Company, management believes that the results of operations adjusted to exclude gains on the sale of rigs, restructuring and separation costs, the impairment charge recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017, as well as the related tax effects thereof and other discrete tax items, are appropriate measures of the continuing and normal operations of the Company.  However, these measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, contract drilling revenue, contract drilling expense, operating income, cash flows from operations or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Represents the impairment loss recognized during the fourth quarter of 2017 related to the write down of our jack-up rig.

(2)

Represents restructuring and separation costs recognized associated with a plan to restructure our world-wide operations, including a reduction in workforce at our corporate facilities and onshore bases, and costs associated with the termination of our Brazilian agency agreement.

(3)

Represents the aggregate gain recognized during fourth quarter of 2017 related to the sale of five floaters and the gain recognized in first quarter of 2018 related to the sale of one floater.

(4)

Represents the income tax effects of the aggregate restructuring and separation costs and gains on the sale of rigs recognized during fourth quarter of 2017 and first quarter of 2018 and the impairment loss recognized in the fourth quarter of 2017.  The income tax effects have been calculated on a discrete tax basis, utilizing the statutory tax rates for the applicable tax jurisdictions. We believe that this approach provides investors and others with useful information regarding the actual tax impact of these transactions when the appropriate tax returns are filed with the taxing authorities.

(5)

Represents the aggregate of certain discrete income tax adjustments recognized during the fourth quarter of 2017 and first quarter of 2018, related to the recently enacted U.S. tax reform legislation, including the reversal of a $43.3 million liability in the first quarter of 2018 for an uncertain tax position related to the toll charge recognized in the fourth quarter of 2017.
