Results Reflect Improved Execution

Solid Backlog, Improved Customer Relations Position the Company for Long-Term Growth

Company to Host Conference Call and Webcast Today at 4:00 pm CT

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 5, 2014-- McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE:MDR) (“McDermott” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The Company reported a third quarter 2014 net loss of $34 million, or $0.14 per fully diluted share, compared to a net loss of $64 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter.

The Company reported third quarter revenues of $415 million, a decrease of $272 million compared to revenues of $687 million in the prior-year quarter, due to lower project activity principally resulting from customer-driven schedule changes. The operating loss was $14 million in the third quarter 2014 and included $5 million of gains on asset sales and $5 million of restructuring expenses. These results compare to the prior-year operating loss of $53 million, which included $4 million of restructuring expenses.

The Company’s other expense for the third quarter 2014 was $14 million compared to other income of $6 million in the prior-year quarter due to increased interest expense.

"We are pleased to report improved year-over-year financial results that we believe reflect considerable progress on our turnaround initiatives, improvement in our operations and stabilization of our financial results,” said David Dickson, President and Chief Executive Officer of McDermott. “We are achieving notable improvements in many areas, including the Company’s culture, operations and our customer relationships, and we believe we are on track to achieve sustainable profitability. Our new customer-focused organization is executing more efficiently, as demonstrated by the fact that we have successfully closed out six legacy projects in the past two quarters, including our Chevron Jack and St. Malo project, a complex ultra deepwater subsea project. Our $2+ billion contract for the INPEX-operated Ichthys project, the industry’s largest subsea contract at its time of award, remains on schedule, and we have achieved a significant milestone with the commencement of the marine campaign and the ongoing installation of the riser support structure.”

Mr. Dickson added, “By restructuring the organization and management team and implementing a culture of accountability and performance, we believe we have improved McDermott’s long-term competitiveness, and we continue to focus on building profitable backlog. We have a large and diverse pipeline of prospective work, as demonstrated by the growth in our bids outstanding, and we believe McDermott has the flexibility to respond to customer demand and schedules. Importantly, our success to date on high profile projects is enhancing McDermott’s reputation as a leading provider of subsea services. McDermott delivers tremendous value to its customers, and we are leveraging McDermott’s unique strengths, including our local fabrication capabilities and leading offshore and subsea track record, to drive long-term value for our shareholders.”

“With a recently recapitalized balance sheet and improved operating cash flow, we believe McDermott has the financial flexibility to execute its turnaround plan,” said Stuart Spence, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “On the operating side, we are focused on efficient working capital management and capital discipline as we embark on a planned campaign to reduce our cost structure. We believe we are on the right track to deliver shareholder returns and to return McDermott to sustainable, profitable growth.”
