Transocean Ltd. Reports First Quarter 2013 Results

May 8, 2013

ZUG, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/13 -- Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG) (SIX: RIGN)

  • First quarter 2013 revenues were $2.197 billion, compared with $2.326 billion in the fourth quarter 2012;
  • Operating and maintenance expenses for the first quarter were $1.375 billion, compared with $1.438 billion in the fourth quarter 2012;
  • First quarter 2013 net income attributable to controlling interest was $321 million, which included $16 million of net unfavorable items. This compares with the fourth quarter 2012 net income attributable to controlling interest of $456 million, which included $126 million of net favorable items;
  • First quarter Annual Effective Tax Rate(1) from continuing operations was 19.2 percent, compared with 7.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012;
  • First quarter 2013 net income attributable to controlling interest was $0.88 per diluted share. After adjusting for net unfavorable items, adjusted earnings from continuing operations were $337 million, or $0.93 per diluted share;
  • Cash flows from operating activities were $106 million in the first quarter, compared with $923 million in the fourth quarter 2012;
  • Revenue efficiency(2) was 88.0 percent in the first quarter, compared with 94.7 percent, in the fourth quarter of 2012. Ultra-deepwater revenue efficiency was 83.8 percent, compared with 95.5 percent in the prior quarter. The lower revenue efficiency was due to the replacement of original equipment manufacturer ("OEM") defective bolts in subsea well control equipment and other unrelated downtime, primarily on certain ultra-deepwater rigs.
  • Total rig utilization(3) was 80 percent in the first quarter, compared with 79 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012; and
  • Contract backlog was $28.5 billion as of the April 18, 2013 Fleet Status Report. Since April 18, 2013, additional contracts totaling $199 million were secured.

Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG) (SIX: RIGN) today reported net income attributable to controlling interest of $321 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2013. First quarter 2013 results included net unfavorable items, after tax, of $16 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, including $49 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, related to an adjustment in contingencies associated with the Macondo well incident and other items, partially offset by $33 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, associated with favorable discrete tax benefits.

After consideration of these net unfavorable items, first quarter 2013 adjusted earnings from continuing operations were $337 million, or $0.93 per diluted share. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP adjusted net income and diluted earnings per share is included in the accompanying schedules.

The first quarter results compare with net income attributable to controlling interest of $10.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2012. First quarter 2012 included net unfavorable items of $255 million, or $0.72 per diluted share. The net unfavorable items were primarily associated with goodwill impairment losses of $135 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, and losses associated with discontinued operations of $137 million, or $0.39 per diluted share. After consideration of these net unfavorable items, first quarter 2012 adjusted earnings from continuing operations were $265 million, or $0.75 per diluted share.

Operations Quarterly Review

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were $2.197 billion, compared with revenues of $2.326 billion during the quarter ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $129 million. The decrease was due to lower revenue efficiency primarily on ultra-deepwater floaters, partly offset by fewer out-of-service days. Ultra-deepwater revenue efficiency decreased to 83.8 percent from 95.5 percent in the prior quarter. Total fleet revenue efficiency was 88.0 percent in the first quarter, compared with 94.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. As expected, the lower revenue efficiency in the first quarter was due in part to the replacement of OEM defective bolts in subsea well control equipment. Unrelated well control equipment and other operational downtime on certain ultra-deepwater rigs also contributed to the decrease in revenue efficiency.

Operating and maintenance expenses decreased $63 million to $1.375 billion for the first quarter of 2013, compared with $1.438 billion for the prior quarter. The decrease was primarily due to lower maintenance and shipyard expenses associated with rigs undergoing surveys and other projects, partly offset by the effect of an adjustment in contingencies associated with the Macondo well incident.

General and administrative expenses were $67 million for the first quarter of 2013, compared with $65 million in the previous quarter.

Annual Effective Tax Rate

Transocean's first quarter Effective Tax Rate(4) from continuing operations was 5.7 percent, compared with (20.7) percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in the Effective Tax Rate was due to changes in estimates, primarily related to settlements of prior years' tax liabilities. Transocean's Annual Effective Tax Rate from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2013 was 19.2 percent. This compares with 7.8 percent for the prior quarter. The increase was primarily due to changes in the blend of income that is taxed based on gross revenues versus pre-tax income, rig movements between taxing jurisdictions and a decrease in the foreign exchange effect of the Norwegian krone versus the U.S. dollar.

Other Items

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized, was $157 million in the first quarter of 2013, compared with $180 million in the prior quarter, a decrease of $23 million. The decrease reflects the repurchase of the 1.5% Series C Convertible Senior Notes in the fourth quarter of 2012. Capitalized interest for the first quarter was $21 million, compared with $18 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Interest income was $17 million in the first quarter of 2013, compared with $13 million in the prior quarter.

Cash flows from operating activities were $106 million for the first quarter, compared with $923 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease was primarily due to working capital changes, including the first installment of $400 million, plus interest, required under the consent decree agreed with the U.S. Department of Justice in January 2013 resulting from the Macondo well incident. Capital expenditures from continuing operations were $488 million for the first quarter, compared with $657 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Cost Reduction Initiatives

In the fourth quarter of 2012, the company commenced an organizational efficiency initiative to align its shore-based support infrastructure with the post-divestiture size, composition and geographic location of its fleet, representing an initial phase in the company's ongoing plan to improve operating margins. This restructuring is expected to result in a more efficient and focused organization that delivers the highest level of support to our rig operations without compromising safety or operational integrity.

Based on preliminary analysis, the company currently anticipates achieving annualized savings associated with this initial phase of our cost reduction initiative of approximately $300 million. The expected reduction in onshore costs includes, among other items, the consolidation of facilities, the streamlining of business functions and processes, as well as elimination of processes, programs and tasks that are not central to supporting our core business of operating our rigs safely and efficiently.

Transocean continues to review its entire cost structure, including its offshore and project expenditures, with the objective of achieving additional improvements in operating margins. The company will provide periodic updates on its cost reduction plans and progress.
