Global Marine Reports Profit Slump

Friday, April 14, 2000
Offshore oil driller Global Marine Inc. announced that first quarter earnings fell sharply compared with the same period of 1999, but showed signs of stabilization after a steady decline in earnings since mid-1998.

After a restructuring charge, net income fell to $12.6 million from $36.8 million in the first quarter of 1999. Its earnings were more or less steady with the final quarter of last year.

Revenues totaled $204 million compared to $228 million in the comparable period last year.

Drilling contractors have not yet profited fully from last year's strong rise in oil prices, because oil companies have been cautious in raising their drilling budgets. However, drilling stocks have risen sharply in anticipation of a recovery. Global Marine's stock has risen approximately 145 percent since the end of 1998.
