Rowan Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, Rowan Companies plc ("Rowan" or the "Company") (RDC) reported net income of $5.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $239.4 million, or $1.92 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2015. Net income for the current quarter included a $34.3 million (after tax), or $0.27 per share, non-cash asset impairment charge and a $1.4 million (after tax), or $0.01 per share, credit from a litigation-related matter. The net loss for the prior-year quarter included a $273.8 million (after tax), or $2.19 per share, non-cash asset impairment charge and a $75.3 million, or $0.60 per share, income tax charge related to a valuation allowance on the Company’s net U.S. deferred tax assets, and a $1.7 million (after tax), or $0.01 per share, charge related to a legal settlement.

Rowan’s revenues were $379.4 million in the third quarter of 2016, a decrease of 30% from the prior-year quarter driven by a 39% decline in the Deepwater segment and a 25% decline in the Jack-up segment. The Deepwater decline resulted from Rowan Relentless being idle and Rowan Resolute operating at a reduced day rate due to the blend and extend amendment to its contract, partially offset by the strong performance of the Rowan Reliance, which experienced lower levels of downtime in the current quarter. Jack-up revenues were impacted by lower utilization and lower day rates.

Tom Burke, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "While revenues are under pressure given the weak activity levels worldwide, I am pleased with Rowan’s response to this cyclical downturn. Our focus on continuous improvement has once again yielded exceptional operational performance with our fifth consecutive quarter of operational downtime of less than 2% and strong safety results. We have also continued to reduce costs, allowing us to build substantial liquidity and solidify our competitive position."

Statements herein that are not historical facts are forward looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, without limitation, statements as to the expectations, beliefs and future expected business, financial and operating performance and prospects of the Company. These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and are subject to certain risks, assumptions, trends and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include oil and natural gas prices, the level of offshore expenditures by energy companies, variations in energy demand, changes in day rates, cancellation, early termination or renegotiation by our customers of drilling contracts, risks associated with fixed cost drilling operations, cost overruns or delays in transportation of drilling units, cost overruns or delays in maintenance and repairs, cost overruns or delays for conversion or upgrade projects, operating hazards and equipment failure, risks of collision and damage, casualty losses and limitations on insurance coverage, customer credit and risk of customer bankruptcy, conditions in the general economy and energy industry, weather conditions and severe weather in the Company’s operating areas, increasing complexity and costs of compliance with environmental and other laws and regulations, changes in tax laws and interpretations by taxing authorities, civil unrest and instability, terrorism, piracy and hostilities in our areas of operations that may result in loss or seizure of assets, impairments, the outcome of disputes, including tax disputes, and legal proceedings, effects of the change in our corporate structure, and other risks disclosed in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Each forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date hereof, and the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Measures We report our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States. However, in our earnings release and during our earnings calls we may reference company information that does not conform to GAAP. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that an analysis of this data is meaningful to investors because it provides insight with respect to ongoing operating results of the Company and allows investors to better evaluate the financial results of the Company. However, these measures should not be viewed as an alternative to or substitute for GAAP measures of performance, and these non-GAAP measures may not be consistent with previously published Company reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K. Non-GAAP measures we may reference have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure in the table entitled Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures below.
