Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Helix Energy Solutions Group reported net income of $27.2 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013 compared to net income of $44.6 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, for the same period in 2012.

Owen Kratz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Helix, stated, “With the sale of the Caesar and Express now behind us along with the pending sale of the Ingleside Spoolbase, we have completed our transition to a company focused on well intervention and robotics, two businesses with exciting growth prospects. Financially, we are pleased to have closed the chapter on the high yield notes with its payoff yesterday and our new credit facility provides us with a lower cost of capital.”

  • Well Intervention revenues decreased 7% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2013, primarily representing a slight decrease in vessel utilization. On a combined basis, vessel utilization decreased to 93% in the second quarter of 2013 from 100% in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Robotics revenues increased 38% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2013, primarily reflecting a significant increase in vessel utilization as the seasonal decline in work over the winter months gave way to more normal activity levels.
  • Subsea Construction revenues increased 37% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2013, representing increased work scopes on both of the final two projects performed by the Express.
