Seacor Holdings Press Release Oct 27 2015

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 10/27/15 -- SEACOR Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CKH) (the "Company") today announced its results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2015.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, net income attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $7.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, net loss attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $11.9 million, or $0.68 per diluted share. Results attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 included a second quarter loss on the extinguishment of the Company's Title XI bonds of $9.6 million, net of noncontrolling interests and tax, or $0.55 per diluted share.

For the preceding quarter ended June 30, 2015, net income attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $0.7 million, or $0.04 per diluted share. A comparison of results for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 with the preceding quarter ended June 30, 2015 is included in the "Highlights for the Quarter" discussion below.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2014, net income attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $27.5 million, or $1.28 per diluted share. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, net income attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $60.0 million, or $2.85 per diluted share.

Charles Fabrikant, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, stated: "The quarter and year-to-date results reflect extremely difficult conditions in our offshore marine services business. Notwithstanding the challenges, our offshore business, as well as all of our other businesses, continue to produce positive cash flows from operations. Our offshore group's results have benefited from a fleet and geographical exposure that is diverse with minimal investment in boats that are highly dependent on deep water exploration activity. We adhere to our focus on maintaining a strong liquidity position, which we believe will serve us well in the current market environment and lead to opportunities. We expect market conditions in the offshore marine business to deteriorate further over the next several quarters and plan on taking further measures to reduce costs."

Highlights for the Quarter

Offshore Marine Services - Operating loss was $2.9 million in the third quarter compared with $0.4 million in the preceding quarter. Operating income before depreciation and amortization ("OIBDA" -- see disclosure related to Non-GAAP measures in the segment information tables herein) was $12.3 million on operating revenues of $95.5 million in the third quarter compared with $15.3 million on operating revenues of $96.7 million in the preceding quarter.

Results for the current quarter include a charge of $6.9 million for a U.K. subsidiary's share of a funding deficit in the Merchant Navy Ratings Pension Fund ("MNRPF") for North Sea mariners. This payment to the pension plan will be made in four annual installments beginning in the fourth quarter and reflects the results of a 2014 actuarial valuation of the pension fund, which is normally performed every three years.

Excluding wind farm utility vessels, but including cold-stacked vessels (those that are not currently available for active service), utilization of the fleet decreased from 65% to 63%. Days available for charter and average rates per day worked during the third quarter were approximately the same as the preceding quarter. This release includes a table presenting time charter operating data by vessel class.

In the U.S., operating results were $2.6 million higher in the third quarter compared with the preceding quarter. Time charter revenues for the U.S. anchor handling towing supply vessels were $2.8 million higher due to improved utilization and higher average rates per day worked, reflecting offshore construction activity in the third quarter. Time charter revenues for the liftboat fleet and other vessel classes decreased by $4.6 million and $1.7 million, respectively. Time charter revenues for the liftboat fleet were lower due to less maintenance activity associated with shelf properties and fewer decommissioning jobs. On a total fleet basis, including cold-stacked vessels, utilization dropped from 49% to 38%. Average rates per day worked increased from $21,898 to $24,137 per day. Operating expenses were $6.6 million lower primarily due to a $4.0 million reduction in drydocking expenses and a $0.9 million reduction in daily running costs as a consequence of cold-stacking additional vessels. As of September 30, 2015, the Company had 19 vessels cold-stacked in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico compared with ten vessels as of June 30, 2015.

Operating results from international regions, before gains on asset dispositions, were $1.7 million lower in the third quarter compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to the previously mentioned MNRPF charge of $6.9 million. Time charter revenues were $2.0 million higher primarily due to a term charter in Sakhalin which commenced in June 2015. On a total fleet basis, excluding wind farm utility vessels but including cold-stacked vessels, utilization improved from 73% to 77% and average rates per day worked increased from $11,111 to $11,198 per day. Operating expenses were $4.6 million higher as the MNRPF charge was partially offset by lower drydocking costs, the cessation of rent payments associated with a bareboat chartered-in vessel that had been operating in the international fleet, and a reduction in vessel repositioning expenses. As of September 30, 2015, the Company had three vessels cold-stacked in international regions compared with two vessels as of June 30, 2015.

Foreign currency losses, net of $1.6 million in the third quarter were primarily due to the weakening of the pound sterling in relation to the euro underlying certain of the Company's debt balances.

Inland River Services - Operating income was $15.2 million in the third quarter compared with $2.6 million in the preceding quarter. OIBDA was $22.4 million on operating revenues of $54.3 million in the third quarter compared with $10.0 million on operating revenues of $61.2 million in the preceding quarter.

Operating results before gains on asset dispositions were $2.2 million higher in the third quarter compared with the preceding quarter. Operating results for the dry-cargo barge pools were $2.7 million higher primarily due to increased demand for moving grain associated with the commencement of the fall harvest and lower costs for moving barges due to reduced towing rates reflecting cheaper diesel fuel.

During the third quarter, the Company sold 34 10,000 barrel liquid tank barges, four inland river towboats and other equipment for net proceeds of $72.4 million and gains of $14.6 million, of which $10.7 million were recognized currently and $3.9 million were deferred. In addition, the Company recognized previously deferred gains of $0.8 million.

Foreign currency losses, net of $2.2 million in the third quarter were primarily due to the weakening of the Colombian peso in relation to the U.S. dollar underlying certain of the Company's intercompany lease obligations.

During the third quarter, the Company recognized $2.2 million of equity losses in its 50% owned joint venture operating on the Parana-Paraguay River Waterway. In addition, the Company recognized interest income (not a component of segment profit) of $1.2 million during the third quarter on notes due from this joint venture.

Shipping Services - Operating income was $18.3 million in the third quarter compared with $6.3 million in the preceding quarter. OIBDA was $24.8 million (of which $9.2 million is attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $58.7 million in the third quarter compared with $12.9 million (of which $2.9 million is attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $55.7 million in the preceding quarter.

Operating results were $12.0 million higher in the third quarter compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to less out-of-service time and costs for drydocking U.S.-flag product tankers, partially offset by a reduction in harbor towing activities resulting from lower port traffic.

During the third quarter and included in other, net, the Company received $1.8 million for the early termination of a contract for two harbor tugs.

During the third quarter, the Company's equity in earnings of 50% or less owned companies increased by $2.9 million primarily due to improved operating results from the Company's VLGC joint venture, Dorian LPG Ltd. As of September 30, 2015, the Company's carrying value in this joint venture was $146.8 million compared with a market value of $98.1 million based on the closing share price as of the date of this release and a market value of $153.1 million based on the closing share price as of June 30, 2015.

Illinois Corn Processing - Segment profit was $4.9 million (of which $1.5 million is attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $40.3 million in the third quarter compared with $10.5 million (of which $3.1 million is attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $48.4 million in the preceding quarter. Segment profit was $5.5 million lower due to the recognition of a $4.1 million gain from a business interruption insurance claim in the preceding quarter and lower alcohol sales volumes in the third quarter.

Debt Extinguishment Losses - During the third quarter, the Company purchased $8.5 million in principal amount of its 7.375% Senior Notes for $8.9 million resulting in a loss on debt extinguishment of $0.4 million. As of September 30, 2015, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Company's 7.375% Senior Notes due 2019 was $211.0 million.

Marketable Securities - Marketable security losses, net of $4.6 million in the third quarter related primarily to the Company's long positions in marketable securities.

Income Tax Expense - The Company's effective tax rate of 21.4% for the third quarter was primarily due to taxes not provided on income attributable to noncontrolling interests.

Share Repurchases - During the third quarter, the Company purchased 678,728 shares of its common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $42.3 million, or $62.34 per share. As of September 30, 2015, the Company had 17,353,929 of common shares outstanding.

(1) Includes amounts attributable to both SEACOR and noncontrolling interests.
(2) Non-GAAP Financial Measure. The Company, from time to time, discloses and discusses OIBDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, for certain of its operating segments in its public releases and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company defines OIBDA as operating income (loss) for the applicable segment plus depreciation and amortization. The Company's measure of OIBDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate OIBDA differently than the Company, which may limit its usefulness as a comparative measure. In addition, this measurement does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and is not a measure of its ability to fund its cash needs. OIBDA is a financial metric used by management (i) as a supplemental internal measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; (ii) as a criteria for annual incentive bonuses paid to the Company officers and other shore-based employees; and (iii) to compare to the OIBDA of other companies when evaluating potential acquisitions.
