- Revenues were $785 million compared with $974 million in the fourth quarter of 2016;

- Operating and maintenance expense was $343 million, including $8 million in favorable items associated with litigation matters. This compares with $314 million in the prior period, including $30 million in favorable items associated with litigation matters;

- Net income attributable to controlling interest was $91 million, $0.23 per diluted share, compared with $243 million, $0.64 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2016;

- Adjusted net income was $4 million, $0.01 per diluted share, excluding $87 million of net favorable items. This compares with $261 million, $0.69 per diluted share, in the prior quarter, excluding $18 million of net unfavorable items;

- EBITDA margin was 52 percent, compared with 59 percent in the fourth quarter of 2016. Adjusted Normalized EBITDA margin was 48 percent, compared with 56 percent in the prior quarter;

- Cash flows from operating activities were $184 million, compared with $633 million in the prior quarter;

- Revenue efficiency(1) was 97.8 percent, compared with 100.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2016; and

- Contract backlog was $10.8 billion as of the April 2017 Fleet Status Report.

ZUG, SWITZERLAND-May 3, 2017-Transocean Ltd. (RIG) today reported net income attributable to controlling interest of $91 million, $0.23 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

First quarter 2017 results included net favorable items of $87 million, or $0.22 per diluted share as follows:

- $77 million, $0.20 per diluted share, in discrete tax benefits;

- $8 million, $0.02 per diluted share, related to favorable litigation matters; and

- $2 million associated with gain on a rig disposal.

After consideration of these net favorable items, first quarter 2017 adjusted net income was $4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share.

Contract drilling revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2017, decreased $55 million sequentially to $738 million due primarily to reduced activity and lower revenue efficiency. These decreases were partially offset by higher dayrates on the ultra-deepwater drillship Deepwater Invictus while working in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, and a full quarter’s contribution from the company’s newbuild drillship Deepwater Conqueror.

Other revenues decreased $134 million sequentially to $47 million due primarily to reduced early contract termination fees.

Operating and maintenance expense was $343 million, including $8 million in favorable items associated with litigation matters. This compares with $314 million in the prior quarter, including $30 million in favorable items associated with litigation matters. The increase was due primarily to the commencement of operations of the Deepwater Conqueror and a full quarter’s activity on the Transocean Arctic.

General and administrative expense was $39 million, down from $47 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The decrease was due primarily to lower restructuring costs.

The Effective Tax Rate(2) was (73.0) percent, down from (6.5) percent in the prior quarter. The decrease was due primarily to favorable items associated with litigation matters. The Effective Tax Rate excluding discrete items(3) was 82.1 percent, up from 3.3 percent in the previous quarter. The increase was due to reduced pre-tax income.

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized, was $127 million, compared with $113 million in the prior quarter. Capitalized interest decreased $16 million sequentially to $30 million due primarily to the Deepwater Conqueror commencing operations. Interest income was $6 million, compared with $5 million in the prior quarter.

Cash flows from operating activities decreased $449 million sequentially to $184 million due to reduced operating activities. Additionally, the prior quarter was favorably impacted by the collection of certain lump sum payments from customers.

First quarter 2017 capital expenditures of $122 million were primarily related to the company’s contracted, newbuild drillships. This compares with $272 million in the previous quarter.

"I would like to recognize and thank the entire Transocean team for producing strong first quarter operating and financial results," said Jeremy Thigpen, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our 98% revenue efficiency demonstrates our unwavering commitment to maximizing uptime for our customers. Our 48% Adjusted Normalized EBITDA Margin is the direct result of our ongoing efforts to optimize our business to enhance shareholder value. And, most importantly, our 12 months without a Lost Time Incident, proves our resolve to deliver incident free operations, all the time, everywhere."

Thigpen added, "This excellent and consistent performance, coupled with our industry-leading $10.8 billion backlog and solid liquidity, positions us well for a market recovery."

- Our estimates change as we file tax returns, settle disputes with tax authorities or become aware of other events and include changes in (a) deferred taxes, (b) valuation of allowances on deferred taxes and (c) other tax liabilities.

- Our effective tax rate is calculated as income tax expense for continuing operations divided by income from continuing operations before income taxes.

- Our effective tax rate, excluding discrete items, is calculated as income tax expense for continuing operations, excluding various discrete items (such as changes in estimates and tax on items excluded from income before income taxes) divided by income from continuing operations before income tax expense excluding gains and losses on sales and similar items pursuant to the accounting standards for income taxes and estimating the annual effective tax rate.
