ZUG, SWITZERLAND—February 26, 2014—Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG) (SIX: RIGN) today reported net income attributable to controlling interest of $233 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2013. Fourth quarter 2013 results included net unfavorable items, after tax, of $34 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, as follows:

  • $27 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in impairments of assets classified as held for sale;
  • $11 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, related to an unfavorable adjustment in contingencies associated with the Macondo well incident; and
  • $8 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, of costs associated with the company’s previously announced shore-based organizational efficiency initiative.

These net unfavorable items were partially offset by:

  • $7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in income from discontinued operations; and
  • $5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in favorable discrete tax benefits.

After consideration of these net unfavorable items, fourth quarter 2013 adjusted earnings from continuing operations were $267 million, or $0.73 per diluted share. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP adjusted net income and diluted earnings per share is included in the accompanying schedules.

In addition to the items above, fourth quarter 2013 results also included approximately $3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in charges related to accelerated recognition of existing compensation plans associated with the implementation of the company's shore-based organizational efficiency initiative.

The fourth quarter 2013 results compare with a net income attributable to controlling interest of $456 million, or $1.26 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012, which included net favorable items of $126 million, or $0.35 per diluted share. The net favorable items were mostly due to $101 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, of favorable discrete tax items; and $25 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, of income from discontinued operations primarily related to the sale of 38 shallow water units to Shelf Drilling. After consideration of these net favorable items, fourth quarter 2012 adjusted earnings from continuing operations were $330 million, or $0.91 per diluted share.

Revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2013 were $2.332 billion, compared with revenues of $2.558 billion during the quarter ended September 30, 2013.  Contract drilling revenues decreased $200 million primarily due to lower fleet utilization and revenue efficiency, partly offset by higher average dayrates. Total fleet utilization was 75 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with 83 percent in the prior quarter, primarily reflecting the expected increase in planned out-of-service time as well as idle and stacked rigs. Total fleet revenue efficiency was 91.7 percent in the fourth quarter, compared with 94.0 percent in the third quarter of 2013, which was below the company's expectations. The decrease in revenue efficiency was primarily due to well control equipment downtime on certain ultra-deepwater rigs.

Other Revenues also decreased $26 million to $130 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with $156 million in the prior quarter, primarily due to a decrease in drilling management services activity.

As expected, operating and maintenance expenses increased $41 million to $1.532 billion for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with $1.491 billion for the prior quarter.  The increase in operating and maintenance expenses was primarily due to $69 million in contract drilling expenses mainly related to shipyard and maintenance costs. This increase was partly offset by lower overhead expenses associated with the company's shore-based organizational efficiency initiative; and drilling management services costs, which decreased $28 million, consistent with the decline in Other Revenues.

General and administrative expenses were $75 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with $67 million in the previous quarter, an increase of $8 million, primarily due to higher professional fees and, to a lesser extent, personnel costs.

Fourth quarter 2013 results included approximately $13 million in costs associated with severance and the accelerated recognition of existing compensation plans due to the implementation of the shore-based organizational efficiency initiative.  Approximately $9 million of this cost was included in operating and maintenance expenses and $4 million was included in general and administrative expenses.

Transocean's fourth quarter Effective Tax Rate(4) was 16.8 percent, compared with 10.4 percent in the third quarter of 2013.  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 Ratefrom continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 17.7 percent. This compares with 19.0 percent for the prior quarter. The decrease was primarily due to changes in the annual provision estimate due to the blend of income that is taxed based on gross revenues versus pre-tax income and rig movements between taxing jurisdictions, among other items.  Fourth quarter 2013 income tax expense included a favorable tax benefit of $7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, to reflect the decrease in the Annual Effective Tax Rate to 20 percent for the year ended December 31, 2013, from 20.6 percent for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized, was $139 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with $142 million in the prior quarter. Capitalized interest for the fourth quarter was $22 million, compared with $19 million in the third quarter of 2013.  Interest income was $13 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with $11 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Cash flows from operating activities were $773 million for the fourth quarter, compared with $623 million for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of $150 million primarily due to changes in working capital.  Capital expenditures increased $498 million to $948 million for the fourth quarter, compared with $450 million in the third quarter of 2013.  The increase in capital expenditures was primarily associated with the company's newbuild program.

Full Year 2013

For the year ended December 31, 2013, net income attributable to controlling interest totaled $1.407 billion, or $3.87 per diluted share.  Full year results included $88 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, of net unfavorable items as follows:

  • $78 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, related to an unfavorable adjustment in contingencies associated with the Macondo well incident; 

  • $64 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in impairments of assets classified as held for sale; 

  • $30 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, of costs primarily associated with severance plans established for the company's previously announced shore-based organizational efficiency initiative; and 

  • $21 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, primarily associated with losses on the early termination of derivative instruments and the sale of Shelf Drilling preference shares. 

These net unfavorable items were partially offset by:

  • $82 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in favorable discrete tax benefits; 

  • $22 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, associated with gains on disposal of assets; and 

  • $1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in income from discontinued operations. 

After consideration of these net unfavorable items, adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the full year 2013 were $1.495 billion, or $4.11 per diluted share.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP adjusted net income and diluted earnings per share is included in the accompanying schedules.

In addition to the items above, full year 2013 results also included approximately $25 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in charges related to accelerated recognition of existing compensation plans associated with the implementation of the company's shore-based organizational efficiency initiative.

Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized, was $584 million for the full year 2013, compared with $723 million for the full year 2012.  Capitalized interest for the full year 2013 was $78 million, compared with $54 million in 2012.  Interest income was $52 million for the full year 2013, compared with $56 million in 2012.

For the full year 2013, cash flow from operating activities totaled $1.918 billion, compared with $2.708 billion for 2012, a decrease of $790 million.  The decrease was primarily due to $560 million in payments associated with the January 2013 partial settlement with the DOJ on the Macondo well incident.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, net loss attributable to controlling interest totaled $219 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, which included net unfavorable items of $1.638 billion, or $4.58 per diluted share. The net unfavorable items were mostly due to $961 million, or $2.70 per diluted share, for loss on impairment of assets included in discontinued operations; and $756 million, or $2.11 per diluted share, primarily for estimated loss contingencies associated with the Macondo well incident. After consideration of the net unfavorable items, adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the full year 2012 were $1.419 billion, or $3.96 per diluted share.
