For fiscal 2014, the active new generation OSVs are comprised of an average of 27.3 "term" vessels that are currently chartered on long-term contracts and an average of 30.7 "spot" vessels that are currently operating or being offered for service under short-term charters. The Company expects to operate an average of 4.3 MPSVs in fiscal 2014 and 5.3 in fiscal 2015.

Contract Coverage:  The Company's forward contract coverage for its current and projected fleet of active new generation OSVs for the remainder of fiscal year 2014 and for fiscal 2015 is currently 61% and 25%, respectively.  The Company's forward contract coverage for its current and projected fleet of MPSVs for the remainder of fiscal year 2014 and for fiscal 2015 is currently 69% and 20%, respectively. These contract backlog percentages are based on available vessel-days for the guidance periods, not estimated revenue.
