The Company's active Upstream fleet for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 is expected to be comprised of an average of 58.0 and 67.6 new generation OSVs, respectively. 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.
