Stolt Offshore Restates Second Quarter Earnings

Thursday, August 29, 2002
Stolt Offshore S.A. has restated its second quarter and six-month results as a result of two accounting adjustments. The adjustments have a positive impact on the Company's net income of $1.4 million. The net income for the quarter ended May 31, 2002 is now $4.8 million, or $0.06 per share, on net operating revenue of $333.4 million. For the six-month period ended May 31, 2002, the Company now reports a net profit of $5.1 million, or $0.06 per share, on net operating revenue of $627.5 million. The first of the two adjustments was caused by the failure to record certain operating costs in the financial accounts of a 66.66%-owned subsidiary, Alto Mar Girassol, which led to a $1.7 million overstatement of net income in the second quarter. The second adjustment relates to the elimination of a 1998 provision for a tax liability of $3.2 million. This tax liability was proved to be unnecessary following the receipt of an assessment letter from the relevant tax authority.
