GulfMark Offshore Reports 3Q Profit Surge

Thursday, November 02, 2006
According to the Houston Chronicle, GulfMark Offshore Inc., said stronger daily rates for its services and increased use of its fleet sent third-quarter profit up sharply. Net income more than tripled to $39.9 million, or $1.91 per share, from $13 million, or 63 cents per share, a year ago. The recent quarter included a 32-cent boost from the sale of a vessel. Excluding the sale, earnings would have been $1.59 per share. Revenue rose to $75.8 million from $53 million a year ago.

Rates for the company's vessels appreciated 45 percent for its North Sea based fleet, compared with the prior year, and rose 22 percent for its Southeast Asia-based fleet. Rates rose a more modest 5 percent for its Americas-based vessels.

Utilization of the company's vessels climbed above 95 percent for all regions during the quarter. Shares of the company added $2.87, or nearly 9 percent, to $35.93 in aftermarket activity, after closing down $1.47, or 4.3 percent, at $33.06 on the Nasdaq. Source: Houston Chronicle
