SEACOR Holdings Announces Results for Its Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2016) -  SEACOR Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CKH) (the "Company") today announced its results for its third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, net loss attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $39.8 million ($2.35 per diluted share). In reflecting on this quarter's results and the outlook for its businesses, Charles Fabrikant, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented:

"At the outset, I want to state that it is not our intent to include lengthy quotes in quarterly press releases on a regular basis. In most quarters, our discussion of each segment's results in our press release and Form 10-Q should suffice to update investors. However, given our very poor results and the need once again to recognize impairments to the carrying value of our assets, it seemed that elaboration on operations and outlook for our businesses might be helpful to investors.

Unfortunately, the offshore segment fulfilled the prophecy in my annual letter dated April 15, 2016: "Dismal." There has been little improvement in offshore activity, notwithstanding oil prices having recovered -- for the moment -- to the $50 level. That recovery, not surprisingly, has drawn activity into the shale provinces but not stimulated drilling offshore. Indeed, customers are still conserving capital, deferring maintenance as well as seeking contractual "outs" for rig commitments. Based on our best attempts to gather anecdotal information, it appears that activity in the fourth quarter of 2016 will not pick up. It is likely that additional drilling rigs will be released, or simply held idle, even when oil companies are contractually obligated to keep paying for them. Our response has been to continue to reduce expenses.

Most industry observers expect the first half of 2017 to be brutal. The winter months, even in good times, are usually less active for us due to weather in the North Sea, Russia and the Gulf of Mexico. This December through March is likely to be "the winter of discontent."

Contrary to many industry commentators, I now anticipate that there will be a slight uptick in activity in the second half of 2017 if oil prices remain in a range of $40-50 per barrel based on Brent pricing. As the cost of engaging a rig provides little or no return to the capital asset, the variable expense for development drilling is now largely based on the price of local labor. Wages in some regions have come down substantially in U.S. dollar terms. Wages in dollar terms in Brazil, Mexico and the UK are now cheaper than they have been in quite some time. If the British pound remains at current levels, working in the North Sea should be less than it was in the first half of 2016.

As also noted in my April letter, the number of active vessels in a region should come into balance with base load demand as more vessels are "stacked." Incremental jobs should allow for some modest improvement in rates and utilization for those vessels actively marketed. This appeared to occur in the North Sea during the summer months. Not surprisingly, with winter coming, rates and utilization have declined reflecting the seasonal downturn.

Since my last report in April, we have seen some stability or increase in activity in the Mediterranean, Arabian Gulf and India. There are also some political developments that auger well for the future. The Brazilian legislature has enacted law allowing international oil companies to hold acreage and operate, similar to the law enacted by Mexico in 2015. Although the prevailing view among industry colleagues is that we should not expect a significant increase in activity before 2020, I would be surprised if Brazil did not come to life in the second half of 2018 assuming rates for rigs remain depressed, the Brazilian real remains around 3 to 1 U.S. dollar, and oil prices hover around $50 per barrel. I realize this is an outlying opinion.

I am less optimistic about the possibility for a positive surprise in the second half 2017 in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately, the U.S. Gulf of Mexico has a huge surplus of vessels, especially those capable of serving deepwater, and is a region that can most easily handle repairs and re-certifying vessels.

We have used the occasion of severe distress to acquire assets at prices which we believe over time will prove very favorable. During the third quarter, we purchased eleven fast support vessels for $10.0 million in a foreclosure proceeding. I expect there will be more transactions such as this, although perhaps not at prices reflective of such a deep discount to replacement cost of the equipment.

Eventually, lenders will lose patience and seek to preserve value in their loans by forcing consolidation. Operating offshore vessels is relatively overhead intensive in relationship to the underlying value of capital assets, and that ratio of overhead and operating support costs to vessel values is even higher today in light of the depressed value of assets. At the moment, there are few cash buyers for boats. There are also few willing sellers so actual transactions are relatively few, except when a lender decides to foreclose. Restructuring is currently the "name of the game."

SEACOR is committed to wait patiently for opportunities to acquire more assets or collaborate with others interested in reducing costs and rationalizing fleets in conjunction with restructuring. Our strong balance sheet and differentiated fleet separate us from others who are struggling with debt and dependent on an upturn in deepwater drilling to provide employment for their assets.

Of course, the very circumstances that enable us to acquire offshore equipment at distressed prices make assessing the value for our own assets very challenging. I stress now as I did in April that we do our best to comply with the rigors of GAAP. However, making educated guesses about the "recoverability" of the carrying value of our assets from projected future income and cash flows is not a "science." When there is sufficient uncertainty about "recoverability," we mark down our assets to "fair value." That too is elusive. It is difficult to find data points for clearing prices when there are few buyers and almost all sellers are being forced. We have mostly delegated the determination of our fair values to brokers or appraisers. They may have the hardest job of all and they, too, have to deal with a moving target.

Turning to our inland river results, sadly, my April forecast of "rainy weather" for the dry-cargo business has also proved correct. Despite a large grain export program, rates and margins during peak fall harvest season never attained sustained high levels. Perfect operating conditions on the river system facilitated handling the large volume. As I pointed out, the large number of barges which had been engaged in moving coal and "frack" sand moved into the covered trades competing for grain cargoes. Inland River Services' third quarter results reflected these pressures. I do not see the supply and demand for covered barges coming into better balance for a couple of years. The likely driver will be some pickup in movements of coal and "frack" sand and retirement of older barges. Our policy is to depreciate our hopper barges over 20 years, although they are capable of working 25-30 years with increased maintenance. Market conditions, the price of scrap steel and interest rates are the important variables in determining whether or not older barges remain in service. I estimate that almost 2,000 covered barges will have attained their 20th anniversary in 2017. If market conditions remain drab and scrap prices remain close to current levels, some of this equipment should bleed out of the system, although the dynamic can also be influenced by operator bias to run barges for the sake of keeping towboats busy.

Given the uncertainty and conflicting opinions about the time frame for recovery in offshore activity, we will do our best to update shareholders if our perception changes."

For the preceding quarter ended June 30, 2016, net loss attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $55.2 million ($3.26 per diluted share). A comparison of results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 with the preceding quarter ended June 30, 2016 is included in the "Highlights for the Quarter" discussion below. For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, net income attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $7.0 million ($0.40 per diluted share).

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, net loss attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $122.1 million ($7.23 per diluted share) and $11.9 million ($0.68 per diluted share), respectively. Results attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 included:

  • low utilization of equipment as a consequence of continuing difficult market conditions for Offshore Marine Services and, to a lesser extent, Inland River Services;
  • a net loss of $34.4 million ($2.04 per diluted share) as a result of a decline in the fair market value of the Company's marketable security position in Dorian LPG Ltd. ("Dorian");
  • a net loss of $32.9 million ($1.95 per diluted share) as a result of Offshore Marine Services' impairment charges primarily associated with its liftboat fleet, its anchor handling towing supply fleet and one specialty vessel;
  • a net loss of $4.2 million ($0.25 per diluted share) as a result of Shipping Services' impairment charges related to a cost method investment in a foreign container shipping company;
  • a net loss of $4.2 million ($0.25 per diluted share) to reserve for one of the Company's notes receivable from a third party following a decline in the underlying collateral value; and
  • a net loss of $3.6 million ($0.22 per diluted share) related to Offshore Marine Services' proportionate share of impairment charges associated with its joint ventured fleet.

Highlights for the Quarter

Offshore Marine Services - Operating loss was $41.1 million compared with $34.5 million in the preceding quarter. As a consequence of continuing difficult market conditions, the Company recognized impairment charges of $29.2 million in the third quarter primarily associated with its anchor handling towing supply fleet and one specialty vessel and $20.9 million in the preceding quarter primarily associated with its liftboat fleet. Operating income before depreciation and amortization ("OIBDA" - see disclosure related to Non-GAAP measures in the segment information tables herein), excluding impairment charges, was $2.4 million on operating revenues of $54.1 million compared with $1.7 million on operating revenues of $57.3 million in the preceding quarter.

Excluding wind farm utility vessels but including cold-stacked vessels (those that are not currently available for active service), utilization of the fleet decreased from 50% to 47% and average rates per day worked decreased by 3% from $10,354 to $10,089. Days available for charter were 2% higher in the third quarter primarily due to the acquisition of eleven vessels during the third quarter. This release includes a table presenting time charter operating data by vessel class.

Operating results in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, excluding losses on dispositions and impairments, were $0.8 million lower compared with the preceding quarter. Time charter revenues for the U.S. anchor handling towing supply vessels were $3.4 million lower due to weaker market conditions and $1.1 million higher for other vessel classes. On a total fleet basis, including cold-stacked vessels, utilization declined from 17% to 14% and average rates per day worked decreased from $17,109 to $13,810. As of September 30, 2016, the Company had 37 of 45 owned and leased-in vessels cold-stacked in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico compared with 25 of 33 as of June 30, 2016. As of September 30, 2016, the cold-stacked vessels consisted of ten anchor handling towing supply vessels,13 fast support vessels, two supply vessels and twelve liftboats.

Operating results from international regions, excluding losses on asset dispositions and impairments, were $3.1 million higher compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to the incremental contribution of a term charter which commenced in Russia in June 2016. On a total fleet basis, excluding wind farm utility vessels but including cold-stacked vessels, utilization declined from 68% to 67%, and average rates per day worked increased from $9,413 to $9,606. As of September 30, 2016, the Company had six of 96 owned and leased-in vessels cold-stacked in international regions compared with four of 100 as of June 30, 2016. As of September 30, 2016, the cold-stacked vessels consisted of one anchor handling towing supply vessel, three fast support vessels, one mini-supply vessel and one supply vessel.

Foreign currency losses of $1.1 million in the third quarter and $0.8 million in the preceding quarter were primarily due to the weakening of the pound sterling in relation to the euro underlying certain of the Company's debt balances.

Equity in losses of 50% or less owned companies of $3.3 million in the preceding quarter were primarily due to losses of $3.0 million for the Company's proportionate share of impairment charges associated with its joint ventured fleet.

Inland River Services - Operating loss was $1.3 million compared with $1.1 million in the preceding quarter. OIBDA was $5.0 million on operating revenues of $41.1 million compared with $5.2 million on operating revenues of $33.8 million in the preceding quarter.

Operating results, excluding gains (losses) on asset dispositions and impairments, were $3.0 million higher compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to higher activity levels in the dry-cargo barge pools associated with the commencement of the fall harvest and favorable operating conditions, although an oversupply of equipment continues to place downward pressure on freight rates.

Foreign currency gains of $0.4 million in the third quarter and $1.0 million in the preceding quarter were primarily due to the strengthening of the Colombian peso in relation to the U.S. dollar underlying certain of the Company's intercompany lease obligations.

Shipping Services - Operating income was $13.9 million compared with $10.6 million in the preceding quarter. OIBDA was $22.1 million (of which $8.0 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $57.4 million compared with $18.0 million (of which $5.9 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $55.6 million in the preceding quarter.

Operating results were $3.3 million higher in the third quarter compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to a full quarter of operations from one newly built U.S.-flag product tanker placed into service during May 2016.

Other, net of $5.5 million in the third quarter and $0.9 million in the preceding quarter was primarily due to impairment charges related to a cost method investment in a foreign container shipping company.

Illinois Corn Processing - Segment profit was $2.0 million (of which $0.6 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $44.0 million compared with $3.3 million (of which $1.0 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $40.6 million in the preceding quarter. Segment profit was $1.3 million lower primarily due to a decline in industry-wide fuel ethanol margins.

Other - During the preceding quarter, segment loss includes a $6.7 million reserve for one of the Company's notes receivable from a third party following a decline in the underlying collateral value.

Debt Extinguishment Gains - During the third quarter, the Company purchased $41.4 million in principal amount of its 2.5% Convertible Senior Notes for $41.0 million resulting in gains on debt extinguishment of $0.6 million.

Marketable Security Transactions - Unrealized marketable security losses on the Company's investment in 9,177,135 shares of Dorian, a publicly traded company listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "LPG," were $21.8 million in the first quarter, $21.6 million in the second quarter and $9.6 million in the third quarter. Dorian's closing share price was $11.77, $9.40, $7.05, $6.00 and $6.29 as of December 31, 2015, March 31, 2016, June 30, 2016, September 30, 2016 and October 27, 2016, respectively. The Company's cost basis in Dorian is $13.66 per share.

(1) Includes amounts attributable to both SEACOR and noncontrolling interests.
(2) Non-GAAP Financial Measure. The Company, from time to time, discloses and discusses OIBDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, for certain of its operating segments in its public releases and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company defines OIBDA as operating income (loss) for the applicable segment plus depreciation and amortization. The Company's measure of OIBDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate OIBDA differently than the Company, which may limit its usefulness as a comparative measure. In addition, this measurement does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and is not a measure of the Company's ability to fund its cash needs. OIBDA is a financial metric used by management (i) as a supplemental internal measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; (ii) as a criteria for annual incentive bonuses paid to the Company officers and other shore-based employees; and (iii) to compare to the OIBDA of other companies when evaluating potential acquisitions.
