Tidewater Inc. announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new program for the Company to spend up to $200 million to repurchase shares of its common stock in open-market or privately-negotiated transactions.

Included in these totals for the previous repurchase program are purchases during the quarter ended June 30, 2007, of 1,693,400 shares of its common shares at a total cost of $113.7 million, an average of $67.13 per share.
