"The new fixtures were awarded for the Ocean GreatWhite in the North Sea, the Ocean Apex in Australia, and the Ocean Monarch in Myanmar."

Edwards added, "Diamond Offshore continues to take the necessary steps to position the Company for long-term success. As such, we entered into a new $950 million revolving credit facility maturing October 2023 and amended our existing credit facility. Combined, this provides $1.275 billion of availability and further enhances our liquidity runway."

(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, non-revenue earning 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 restructuring and separation costs incurred in 2018, costs incurred in the third quarter 2018 for settlement of a previously pending legal claim, the loss on a rig sale recognized in the third quarter 2018 and the third quarter 2017 loss on extinguishment of debt, as well as the related tax effects thereof, 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.
