"Considering current market headwinds, I am pleased with our fourth quarter results, driven in part by continuing cost controls and improving rig efficiencies," said Marc Edwards, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Despite an extremely challenging market environment, the Ocean GreatWhite, Ocean Scepter and the Ocean BlackRhino will all commence term contracts in the first quarter, contributing to our strong backlog and liquidity positions."

During the quarter, the Company executed a new contract for the Ocean Monarch with BHP Billiton in Australia, which is scheduled to commence at the end of the second quarter of 2017. The new contract runs through late third quarter of 2017.

As of December 31, 2016, the Company’s total contracted backlog was $3.6 billion, which represents 25 rig years of work. Approximately 94% of the Company’s available ultra-deepwater rig days for 2017 are contracted with top tier customers.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

To supplement the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, this press release provides investors with adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that these measures provide meaningful information about the Company’s performance by excluding certain charges that may not be indicative of the Company’s ongoing operating results. This allows investors and others to better compare the company’s financial results across previous and subsequent accounting periods and to those of peer companies and to better understand the long-term performance of the Company. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered to be a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

In order to fully assess the financial operating results of the Company, management believes that the results of operations adjusted to exclude charges recorded for the impairment of rigs and associated inventory, as well as the related tax effect thereof and other discrete tax items, are appropriate measures of the continuing and normal operations of the Company. However, these measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, contract drilling revenue, contract drilling expense, operating income, cash flows from operations or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(1)   Average dayrate is defined as contract drilling revenue for all of the specified rigs in our fleet per revenue earning day.  A revenue earning day is defined as a 24-hour period during which a rig earns a dayrate after commencement of operations and excludes mobilization, demobilization and contract preparation days.
(2)   Utilization is calculated as the ratio of total revenue-earning days divided by the total calendar days in the period for all specified rigs in our fleet (including cold-stacked rigs, but excluding rigs under construction).  Our current fleet includes four ultra-deepwater semisubmersibles, three deepwater semisubmersibles, three mid-water semisubmersibles that are cold stacked.
(3)   Operational efficiency is calculated as the ratio of total revenue-earning days divided by the sum of total revenue-earning days plus the number of days (or portions thereof) associated with unanticipated equipment downtime.
