The extraordinary loss incurred in the quarter ended March 31, 2002, resulted from the Company's decision to cancel an $82 million credit facility established to partially finance the construction of the Chiles Discovery. The Company never drew on the facility. For the quarter ended March 31, 2002, the rig fleet operated at 100% utilization and generated an average dayrate of $69,662 as compared to 100% utilization and an average dayrate of $68,926, for the corresponding quarter ended March 31, 2001.

The Chiles Discovery, which is a KFELS Mod V "B" design, has completed final commissioning and is currently expected to commence operations before the end of May 2002 under a 600-800 day contract with an affiliate of Phillips in the East Timor Sea located between East Timor and Australia. Beginning with the quarter ended March 31, 2002, the Company presents its reported operating revenue and expense in two separate categories. "Contract revenue" refers to the revenue generated directly by the dayrates earned under its drilling contracts while "reimbursable revenue" refers to revenue related to pass-through operating costs, incurred from time to time, on behalf of customers. "Operating expense" refers to the direct operating costs incurred to operate the rigs and "reimbursable expense" refers to the offsetting costs of the reimbursable revenue. The Company has, furthermore, decided to provide additional financial and operational information in the "Supplementary Comparative Financial and Operational Data" section of the earnings release.
