Vantage Drilling International Reports First Quarter Results for 2016

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - May 13, 2016) - Vantage Drilling International ("Vantage" or the "Company") reported a net loss of $471.0 million for the period from January 1, 2016 to February 10, 2016 for the Predecessor Company and a net loss of $29.0 million for the Successor for the period, including February 10, 2016, through March 31, 2016. Upon emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on February 10, 2016, Vantage adopted fresh-start accounting, which resulted in the Company becoming a new entity for financial reporting purposes. References to "Successor" relate to the financial position and results of operations of the reorganized Vantage as of and subsequent to February 10, 2016. References to "Predecessor" refer to the financial position of Vantage as of and prior to February 10, 2016 and the results of operations prior to February 10, 2016. As a result of the application of fresh-start accounting and the effects of the implementation of our Plan of Reorganization, the financial statements on or after February 10, 2016 are not comparable with the financial statements prior to that date.

The Predecessor's operating results for the period from January 1, 2016 to February 10, 2016, include approximately $452.9 million of Reorganization Items. The Successor's operating results for the period from February 10, 2016 through March 31, 2016 include Reorganization Items of approximately $154,000.

For the three month period ended March 31, 2015, the Predecessor reported net income of approximately $22.6 million.

Vantage, a Cayman Islands exempted company, is an offshore drilling contractor, with an owned fleet of three ultra-deepwater drillships; the Platinum Explorer, the Titanium Explorer and the Tungsten Explorer, as well as four Baker Marine Pacific Class 375 ultra-premium jackup drilling rigs. Vantage's primary business is to contract drilling units, related equipment and work crews primarily on a dayrate basis to drill oil and natural gas wells. Vantage also provides construction supervision services for, and will operate and manage, drilling units owned by others. Through its fleet of seven owned drilling units, Vantage is a provider of offshore contract drilling services globally to major, national and large independent oil and natural gas companies.
