Tidewater Inc. (NYSE:TDW) announced first quarter net earnings for the period ended June 30, 2009, of $44.5m, or $0.86 per share, on revenues of $326.6m. Included in net earnings for the June 2009 quarter is a non-cash charge totaling $48.6m ($47.7m after-tax, or $0.93 per common share) related to the company’s Venezuelan operations. As a result of the seizure of 11 vessels and certain other assets during the June quarter in Venezuela pursuant to a May 2009 Venezuelan law and the continued nonpayment of outstanding receivables from Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA) and an affiliate of PDVSA, the company recorded a $3.8m charge equal to the net book value of the assets seized and a $44.8m provision to fully reserve accounts receivable due from PDVSA-related entities.
