Transocean Ltd. Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

Revenues were $751 million, compared with $785 million in the first quarter of 2017;

Revenue efficiency was 97.4 percent, compared with 97.8 percent in the first quarter of 2017;

Operating and maintenance expense was $333 million, compared with $343 million in the prior period;

Net loss attributable to controlling interest was $1.690 billion, $4.32 per diluted share, compared with net income attributable to controlling interest of $91 million, $0.23 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2017;

Adjusted net income was $1 million, excluding $1.691 billion of net unfavorable items primarily related to the previously announced $1.597 billion loss on the divestiture of the jackup fleet. This compares with $4 million, $0.01 per diluted share, in the prior quarter, excluding $87 million of net favorable items;

Adjusted Normalized EBITDA margin was $347 million or 49 percent, compared with $361 million or 48 percent in the prior quarter;

Cash flows from operating activities were $319 million, up from $184 million in the prior quarter;

Repurchased an aggregate principal amount of debt of $1.343 billion, including cash tender offers of $1.212 billion and open market repurchases of $131 million primarily associated with near??’dated debt; and

-- Contract backlog was $10.2 billion as of the July 2017 Fleet Status Report.

Transocean Ltd. (RIG) today reported net loss attributable to controlling interest of $1.690 billion, $4.32 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

Second quarter 2017 results included net unfavorable items of $1.691 billion, or $4.32 per diluted share as follows:

-- $1.597 billion, $4.08 per diluted share, loss on the divestiture of the jackup fleet;

$113 million, $0.29 per diluted share, loss on impairment of primarily the midwater floater asset group;

-- $48 million, $0.12 per diluted share, loss related to the early retirement of debt; and

-- $3 million associated with unfavorable litigation matters and restructuring charges.

These net unfavorable items were partially offset by:

-- $70 million, $0.17 per diluted share, in discrete tax benefits.

After consideration of these net unfavorable items, second quarter 2017 adjusted net income was $1 million.

Contract drilling revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2017, decreased $33 million sequentially to $705 million due primarily to reduced activity.

Other revenues were $46 million, compared with $47 million in the prior quarter.

Operating and maintenance expense was $333 million, including $4 million in unfavorable items associated with litigation matters and restructuring charges. This compares with $343 million in the prior quarter, including $8 million in favorable items associated with litigation matters. The decrease was due to ongoing cost control initiatives and a favorable adjustment to value added taxes, partially offset by reactivation costs related to the contract preparation on the harsh environment semisubmersible Transocean Barents.

General and administrative expense was $35 million, down from $39 million in the first quarter of 2017. The decrease was due largely to the reimbursement of legal fees and other costs related to the settlement of a court case.

Depreciation expense was $219 million, down from $232 million in the first quarter of 2017. The decrease was due to the sale of the jackup fleet.

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized, was $129 million, compared with $127 million in the prior quarter. Capitalized interest was unchanged at $30 million. Interest income was $7 million, compared with $6 million in the prior quarter.

The Effective Tax Rate was 2.2 percent, up from (73.0) percent in the prior quarter. The increase was due primarily to lower pre??’tax income largely associated with the loss on sale of the jackup fleet. The Effective Tax Rate excluding discrete items was 74.0 percent, compared with 82.1 percent in the previous quarter.

Cash flows from operating activities increased $135 million sequentially to $319 million due primarily to the collection of certain receivables.

Second quarter 2017 capital expenditures of $136 million were primarily related to the company’s newbuild drillships. This compares with $122 million in the previous quarter.

"We continue to safely and efficiently convert our industry leading $10.2 billion backlog into cash," said Jeremy Thigpen, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Across our global fleet, we have now operated for 15 consecutive months without a single lost time incident. Our revenue efficiency, which is a close proxy for rig uptime, once again exceeded 97%. And, despite a sequential decline in revenue, our Adjusted Normalized EBITDA improved to 49%."

Thigpen added: "In addition to this excellent and consistent operating performance, during the quarter, we continued to further strengthen our balance sheet, including the private offering of $410 million in senior secured notes, the divestiture of the jackup fleet for a total consideration of $1.35 billion, and a successful cash tender offer resulting in the repurchase of approximately $1.2 billion in existing notes with maturities between 2017 and 2021."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We present our operating results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (U.S. GAAP). We believe certain financial measures, such as Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Normalized EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures, provide users of our financial statements with supplemental information that may be useful in evaluating our operating performance. We believe that such non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with our operating results presented under U.S. GAAP, can be used to better assess our performance from period to period and relative to performance of other companies in our industry, without regard to financing methods, historical cost basis or capital structure. Such non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

All non-GAAP measure reconciliations to the most comparative U.S. GAAP measures are displayed in quantitative schedules on the company’s website at: www.deepwater.com.

(1) Average daily revenue is defined as contract drilling revenues earned per operating day. An operating day is defined as a calendar day
during which a rig is contracted to earn a dayrate during the firm contract period after commencement of operations.
(2) Rig utilization is defined as the total number of operating days divided by the total number of available rig calendar days in the
measurement period, expressed as a percentage.
(3) Revenue efficiency is defined as actual contract drilling revenues for the measurement period divided by the maximum revenue calculation
for the measurement period, expressed as a percentage.
Maximum revenue is defined as the greatest amount of contract drilling revenues
the drilling unit could earn for the measurement period, excluding amounts related to incentive provisions.

(1) 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 allowances on deferred taxes and (c) other tax liabilities.
(2) The three and six months ended June 30, 2017 includes $(2) million of additional tax expense (benefit) reflecting the catch-up effect of an
increase (decrease) in the annual effective tax rate from the previous quarter estimate.
(3) Our effective tax rate is calculated as income tax expense for continuing operations divided by income from continuing operations before
income taxes.
(4) 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.
