Jean P. Cahuzac, Chief Executive Officer, said:

"We have delivered a strong financial result in a quarter of high activity. Operationally, we have successfully completed a number of complex and technically challenging deepwater projects demonstrating the quality of our assets and the technical ability of our employees to respond to the demands of the market.

Across the industry, project awards continue to be delayed. This has somewhat impacted our backlog progression, following the material increases at the end of 2007 and early 2008. These project award delays, combined with the arrival of additional tonnage, may have further impact in the coming months. However, we believe this represents only a short-term challenge for ourselves and the industry and it should not be seen as indicative of change in the medium and long-term market prospects which remain robust."

Operating Review

Acergy Africa and Mediterranean -- Net operating revenue increased to $375.3 million (Q2 2007: $346.4 million) driven by high activity levels. Major deepwater projects; Mondo and Moho Bilondo reached physical completion during the quarter, with contract closure of Moho Bilondo anticipated in early 2009. EPC2B progressed well and nears completion, while Tombua Landana completed its first installation phase. Net operating income increased to $82.7 million (Q2 2007: $52.6 million) driven by good contributions from projects in offshore installation and the positive close out of projects which were completed during the quarter. At the end of the quarter, the Acergy Polaris completed work on EPC2B and commenced her planned dry-dock, which is expected to be completed by year end.

Acergy Northern Europe and Canada -- Net operating revenue was $211.4 million (Q2 2007: $216.2 million) with net operating income of $10.8 million (Q2 2007: $32.2 million) the reduction reflected the absence of trunkline activity in the quarter. The effects of planned dry-docks of a number of vessels, and the Acergy Piper remaining on standby were partially offset by stronger SURF, IMR and survey activity and good vessel utilisation.

Acergy North America and Mexico -- Net operating revenue was $0.9 million (Q2 2007: $0.2 million) with net operating income of $5.6 million (Q2 2007: $0.2 million) due to contributions from cross-regional projects; PRA-1 and Frade.

Acergy South America -- Net operating revenue increased to $111.0 million (Q2 2007: $53.9 million) driven by good revenue contribution from SURF projects. The PRA-1 Project physically completed during the quarter, while operations for the Frade Project continued to progress. The three ships on long-term service agreements to Petrobras achieved full utilisation, outside of planned dry-docks. Net operating income was $1.3 million (Q2 2007: net operating loss of $0.3 million). Petrobras obtained a restricted environmental permit post quarter end and consequently the Acergy Piper mobilised and commenced transit to Brazil for work on the Mexilhao Trunkline Project. Resolution of the claim regarding this delay is still ongoing.

Acergy Asia and Middle East -- Net operating revenue increased to $43.2 million (Q2 2007: $16.9 million) following physical completion of the Maari Project while other projects including Van Gogh and Pluto remained in early stages. Net operating income of $8.2 million (Q2 2007: net operating loss $8.2 million) reflected good project performance partially offset by the continued negative contribution from the SapuraAcergy joint venture. Operationally, the Sapura 3000 has performed well post shipyard delivery and has completed the first offshore phase of the Kikeh Project.

Non-consolidated Joint Ventures

The second quarter contribution was $13.6 million (Q2 2007: $13.9 million). The loss from the SapuraAcergy joint venture was more than offset by strong contributions from Seaway Heavy Lifting and NKT Flexibles, the latter announcing the award of a significant frame agreement with Petrobras for the period of 2009-2011.

Asset Development

During the quarter we exercised a purchase option on the Acergy Petrel on favourable terms, adding $32 million to capital expenditure. The Skandi Acergy is expected to join the fleet during the third quarter, followed by the Acergy Merlin during the first quarter of 2009. In addition, the company decided to move forward with a $21 million upgrade of the Acergy Eagle.

Acergy's participation in the trunkline business through the ownership of the Acergy Piper potentially creates significant profit and loss volatility, dependent on whether or not the asset is utilised. We are reviewing opportunities for this asset in the context of the global trunkline market.

Financial Review

Net operating revenue from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2008 increased 17% to $742 million (Q2 2007: $634 million) due to significantly higher activity levels in West Africa, Brazil and Australasia.

Gross profit increased 20% to $150 million (Q2 2007: $125 million) as the volume and quality of project execution during the quarter continued to improve.

Acergy's share of net income from non-consolidated joint ventures remained flat at $14 million (Q2 2007: $14 million). The major contributors were NKT Flexibles and Seaway Heavy Lifting while the SapuraAcergy joint venture remained loss-making.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $62 million (Q2 2007: $56 million) reflecting the impacts of higher activity levels and the weakening US dollar.

The Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations for the three months was 18.0% (Q2 2007: 16.6%).

Net operating income from continuing operations for the second quarter was $106 million (Q2 2007: $83 million). This 28% increase was due to higher activity levels, good ongoing project performance and the successful completion of a number of major projects.

The income tax provision for the quarter was $38 million, reflecting an effective rate of 38%. The French tax audit and UK tonnage tax enquiry continue with no significant events in the quarter.

Net income from continuing operations increased 29% to $62 million (Q2 2007: $48 million) reflecting the higher level of activity, strongly improved project performance and an overall solid contribution from the non-consolidated joint ventures.

The cash and cash equivalents position at the quarter end was $430 million (February 29, 2008: $650 million). This reduction is due to planned capital expenditure at $75 million and returns to shareholders of $138 million in share buybacks, as well as lower cash generation from operations. Total advance revenues from clients, at the quarter end stood at $259 million (Q2 2007: $210 million).

At quarter end, Acergy S.A. held directly 11,667,495 treasury shares representing 5.98% of the total issued shares, as well as indirectly holding 879,121 treasury shares, representing 0.45% of the total issued shares. The $300 million share buyback programme was completed during the quarter.

Current Trading

Order intake for the second quarter of 2008 has been low, following significant backlog growth in the first quarter. The backlog as at May 31, 2008 was approximately $3.6 billion, of which $1.3 billion is expected to be executed in the remainder of fiscal 2008. We also held an additional $241 million in pre-backlog.

Updated Full Year guidance

Revenue expectations for the full year remain at $3.0 billion. The Adjusted EBITDA percentage margin is expected to show a moderate improvement over the result achieved for each of the full fiscal years 2006 and 2007, subject to the successful resolution of the Mexilhao negotiations. The effective rate of tax is expected to be approximately 35% at fiscal year end but with an expectation of quarterly volatility depending on the timing of the resolution of the ongoing tax audits and profit mix outturn. Capital expenditure is expected to be $300 million in commitments for fiscal 2008 with a cash expenditure of up to $325 million. This increase in capital expenditure largely results from new strategic decisions such as the Acergy Petrel purchase and the Acergy Eagle upgrade as well as some unanticipated cost increases.

Outlook

The macro drivers for our business; global growth in demand for energy, new down-hole technologies -- which extend further the life of mature fields and the need that operators have to access reserves in more and more challenging environments, continue to drive the need to develop further reserves. Within this positive outlook there are short-term cyclical factors which may adversely affect our business, including the irregular award of contracts. Further delays in award of large West African projects, together with additions to competitors' fleets in several regions, may prompt short-term weakening of growth prospects for the sector, although we remain confident that the delayed projects will be awarded. Market visibility is good and the medium and long-term fundamentals for our business remain robust.

Acergy S.A. is a seabed-to-surface engineering and construction contractor for the offshore oil and gas industry worldwide. We plan, design and deliver complex, integrated projects in harsh and challenging environments. We operate internationally as one group -- globally aware and locally sensitive, sharing our expertise and experience to create innovative solutions. We are more than solution providers, we are solution partners -- ready to make long-term investments in our people, assets, know-how and relationships in support of our clients.

(a) Adjusted EBITDA: The group calculates Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations (adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortisation) as net income from continuing operations plus finance costs, other gains and losses, taxes, depreciation and amortisation and adjusted to exclude investment income and impairment of property, plant and equipment. Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net operating revenue from continuing operations. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations are important indicators of our operational strength and the performance of our business. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations have not been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the IASB nor as endorsed for use in the European Union. These non-IFRS measures provide management with a meaningful comparison amongst our various regions, as it eliminates the effects of financing and depreciation. Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations is also a useful ratio to compare our performance to our competitors and is widely used by shareholders and analysts following the group's performance. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations as presented by the group may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Such supplementary adjustments to EBITDA may not be in accordance with current practices or the rules and regulations adopted by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") that apply to reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Accordingly, the SEC may require that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations be presented differently in filings made with the SEC than as presented in this release, or not be presented at all. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations are not measures determined in accordance with IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income (as determined in accordance with IFRS), as a measure of the group's operating results or cash flows from operations (as determined in accordance with IFRS) or as a measure of the group's liquidity. The reconciliation of the group's net income from continuing operations to Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is included in this release.

This release also includes a supplemental calculation of Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations calculated as net operating income from continuing operations, plus depreciation and amortisation and impairment charges on property, plant and equipment. Management believes that this supplemental presentation of Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is also useful as it is more in line with the presentation of similarly titled measures by companies within Acergy's peer group and therefore believes it to be a helpful calculation for those evaluating companies within Acergy's industry.

The forward-looking statements reflect our current views and assumptions and are subject to risks and uncertainties. The following factors, and others which are discussed in our public filings and submissions with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, are among those that may cause actual and future results and trends to differ materially from our forward-looking statements: our ability to recover costs on significant projects; the general economic conditions and competition in the markets and businesses in which we operate; our relationship with significant clients; the outcome of legal and administrative proceedings or governmental enquiries; uncertainties inherent in operating internationally; the timely delivery of ships on order and the timely completion of ship conversion programmes; the impact of laws and regulations; and operating hazards, including spills and environmental damage.
