Vantage Drilling International Reports Third Quarter Results for 2016

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2016) - Vantage Drilling International ("Vantage" or the "Company") reported a net loss of approximately $41.5 million or ($8.31) per share for the three months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to the Predecessor reporting net income of approximately $5.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015. The weighted-average shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was 5,000,053 whereas in the prior year, as a wholly-owned subsidiary, the Predecessor did not have a comparable outstanding ordinary shares.

Upon emergence from the Company's Chapter 11 restructuring 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.

For the period from February 10, 2016 to September 30, 2016, Vantage reported a net loss of approximately $106.3 million or ($21.26) per share and the Predecessor for the period January 1, 2016 to February 10, 2016 reported a net loss of approximately $471.0 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Predecessor reported net income of approximately $55.8 million.

As of September 30, 2016, Vantage had approximately $241.1 million of available cash as compared to $240.5 million as of June 30, 2016. Additionally, Vantage had $25.7 million available for issuance of letters of credit under its revolving letter of credit facility at the end of the quarter. Ihab Toma, CEO, commented. "Despite very challenging market conditions, we were awarded a new contract for the Emerald Driller in Qatar and continued our strong performance across our operating fleet. We remain committed to maintaining this performance for our customers while operating safely, managing costs and preserving our strong balance sheet position."

Vantage, a Cayman Islands exempted company, is an offshore drilling contractor, with a fleet of three ultra-deepwater drillships and four 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 globally for major, national and large independent oil and natural gas companies. Vantage also provides construction supervision services for, and will operate and manage, drilling units owned by others.
