Segment Results

International Services

International Services revenue from external sales was $118.6 million in the first quarter of 2014, up 7.3% compared to the first quarter of 2013, but down 3.0% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. First quarter revenue benefited from rig count increases in West Africa and new business opportunities in the Middle East and Far East. That growth was offset by declines in Latin America due to decreased business with customers in the region and Canada due to weather and non-productive rig time.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2014 of $51.0 million was up 2.1% compared to the first quarter of 2013, and up 9.8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin for the first quarter was 43.0% of external revenue.

U.S. Services

U.S. Services revenue from external sales was $103.8 million in the first quarter of 2014, up 6.4% compared to the first quarter of 2013, but down 8.7% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

For the first quarter, onshore revenue within the U.S. Services segment of $36.1 million was down 9.2% year-over-year and down 15.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. The declines were driven by the continued U.S. onshore competitive environment. The Company’s continued focus is on maintaining the pricing margin profile of this business.

Offshore revenue within the U.S. Services segment for the first quarter increased 17.1% year-over-year, but decreased 4.8% to $67.6 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. Sequential declines were due to weather and drilling delays including equipment testing and rig-related issues. Year-over year results continue to be positively impacted by deep and complex drilling activity in the deep water.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA of $41.9 million was down 2.1% compared to the first quarter of 2013 and down 14.4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin was 40.4% of external revenue for the first quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by increased compensation costs within cost of revenue and general and administrative expenses.

Tubular Sales

Tubular Sales revenue from external sales was $42.2 million in the first quarter of 2014, up 71.9% compared to the first quarter of 2013, but down 8.7% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. Year-over-year increase in revenue was driven by sales of pipe for deep water projects. Deferred revenue was flat from the fourth quarter of 2013 at $62.7 million.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was $9.4 million, up 44.2% compared to the first quarter of 2013, but down 36.4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin was 22.2% of external revenue for the first quarter.

Capital Expenditures and Balance Sheet

Capital expenditures were $36.9 million during the first quarter of 2014. The Company’s consolidated cash balance at March 31, 2014 was $427.9 million compared to $404.9 million at December 31, 2013. Total debt at March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $0.4 million. At March 31, 2014, there was a combined $190.4 million of unused capacity under the Company’s $100.0 million multi-year and $100.0 million one-year credit facilities, net of outstanding letters of credit.

Dividends

The Company expects that its Board of Supervisory Directors (the “Board”) will declare a cash dividend of $0.075 per share (subject to applicable Dutch dividend withholding tax) at its next scheduled meeting on May 14, 2014 to all common stockholders of record as of May 30, 2014, and with a payment date on June 20, 2014, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. Any declaration and payment of dividends are subject to the determination by the Board and no assurances can be given that any such dividend will be declared as expected.

2014 Outlook

The Company is reaffirming its full year 2014 outlook first issued on February 25, 2014.

For 2014, the Company expects full year International Services segment revenue to grow at least 10 percent. The Company expects full year revenue from the offshore portion of the U.S. Services segment to grow at least 10 percent, in line with deepwater and ultra-deepwater rig count increases. The land portion of the U.S. Services segment is expected to be down slightly year-over-year. For Tubular Sales the expectation is to grow at least 4 percent. The Company expects full year Adjusted EBITDA margin to be around 40 percent. The expected effective tax rate for 2014 is between 20 and 25 percent.

For the second quarter, the Company expects revenues to be between $270 million and $280 million, with Adjusted EBITDA margins to be around 40 percent.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release and the accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, which may be used periodically by management when discussing the Company’s financial results with investors and analysts. The accompanying schedules of this news release provide a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are presented because management believes these metrics provide additional information relative to the performance of the Company’s business. These metrics are commonly employed by financial analysts and investors to evaluate the operating and financial performance of the Company from period to period and to compare it with the performance of other publicly traded companies within the industry. You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Because Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin may be defined differently by other companies in the Company’s industry, the Company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as income from continuing operations before net interest income or expense, depreciation and amortization, income tax benefit or expense, asset impairments, gain or loss on sale of assets, foreign currency gain or loss and other non-cash adjustments. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA to assess its financial performance because it allows the Company to compare its operating performance on a consistent basis across periods by removing the effects of its capital structure (such as varying levels of interest expense), asset base (such as depreciation and amortization) and items outside the control of the Company’s management team (such as income tax rates). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenue.

Please see the accompanying financial tables for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures.
