Rowan Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

HOUSTON, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, Rowan Companies plc ("Rowan" or the "Company") (NYSE: RDC) reported a net loss of $76.7 million, or $0.60 net loss per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $28.7 million, or $0.23 net loss per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017.

Tom Burke, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "While overall market conditions for offshore drilling remain challenging, demand for rigs has improved year to date.  Since the beginning of the second quarter 2018, Rowan has been awarded contracts for both drillships and jack-up rigs. Our recent drillship awards speak to our deepwater capabilities and asset quality. We also commenced operations on key work programs in the North Sea and Trinidad with our ultra-harsh environment jack-up rigs, where we believe we are well-positioned.  Our confidence level in adding further backlog during the second half of 2018 for both our drillships and jack-ups continues to grow, based on tendering activity and improving market fundamentals. In the Middle East, our joint venture, ARO Drilling, continues to demonstrate the significant benefits of our partnership with Saudi Aramco, securing eleven new three year drilling contracts, of which two are for Rowan rigs to be sold to the joint venture later this year. Of the remaining nine, which we expect to lease to the joint venture, four are for rigs that were idle and not previously operating in Saudi Arabia and the remaining five are for rigs that are currently operating in Saudi Arabia and start their new contracts when their existing contracts conclude."

These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and are subject to numerous 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 and the impact of the economic climate; changes in the offshore drilling market, including fluctuations in supply and demand; variable levels of drilling activity and expenditures in the energy industry; changes in day rates; ability to secure future drilling contracts; cancellation, early termination or renegotiation by our customers of drilling contracts; customer credit and risk of customer bankruptcy; risks associated with fixed cost drilling operations; unplanned downtime; risks related to our joint venture with Saudi Aramco, including the timing and amount of future distributions from the joint venture or contributions to the joint venture; cost overruns or delays in transportation of drilling units; cost overruns or delays in maintenance, repairs, or other rig projects; operating hazards and equipment failure; risks of collision and damage; casualty losses and limitations on insurance coverage; weather conditions in the Company's operating areas; increasing costs of compliance with regulations; changes in tax laws and interpretations by taxing authorities; hostilities, terrorism, and piracy; impairments; cyber incidents; the outcomes of disputes, including tax disputes and legal proceedings; and other risks disclosed in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

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 tables entitled Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures below.
