Tidewater Inc. announced revenue for the three and twelve months ending December 31, 2020, of $91.9 million and $397.0 million, respectively compared with $118.8 million and $486.5 million, respectively, for the three and twelve months ending December 31, 2019. Tidewater's net losses for the three and twelve months ending December 31, 2020, were $29.2 million ($0.72 per share) and $196.2 million ($4.86 per share), respectively, compared with $59.9 million ($1.52 per share) and $141.7 million ($3.71 per share), respectively, for the three and twelve months ending December 31, 2019. Included in the net losses for the three and twelve months ending December 31, 2020 were impairment charges related to assets held for sale, affiliate credit losses, affiliate guaranteed obligation, inventory obsolescence and general and administrative severance expenses totaling $6.2 million and $130.6 million, respectively. Excluding these costs, we would have reported a net loss for the three months ending December 31, 2020 of $23.1 million ($0.57 per common share) and a net loss for the twelve months ending December 31, 2020 of $65.6 million ($1.63 per common share). Excluding long-lived asset impairments and one-time expenses, net losses for the three and twelve months ending December 31, 2019 were $25.2 million (or $0.64 per common share) and $91.4 million (or $2.39) per common share), respectively.

Quintin Kneen, Tidewater’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am pleased to report that we again generated free cash flow in the latest quarter and that we generated $52.7 million of free cash flow for the calendar year. Achieving these results during a considerably challenging year was due to the ability of our offshore and onshore team to quickly and skillfully adjust to the changing market.

“The offshore supply vessel market continues to evolve, and the ability of Tidewater to continue to transform itself is key to delivering top value to our shareholders. In addition to adapting to the market changes mentioned previously, Tidewater’s digital transformation has been underway since the 2018 merger. We were featured in a press release by global satellite provider Inmarsat last month regarding the completion of our high bandwidth vessel connectivity. This connectivity allows us to expand our in-house suite of tablet-based applications directly to the vessel, which will enable us to provide comprehensive real-time vessel system monitoring as well as administrative efficiencies.

“The other transformation we are embracing is how our business contributes to a lower carbon future. Shipping is a hard to abate industry, and although the hydrocarbon fuels utilized by our working vessels are provided by our customers, our ability to contribute to a lower carbon future by working with our customers to reduce carbon emissions through operational efficiencies enabled by the utilization of the technology platform referenced previously, and by working with our customers on the adoption of currently available hybrid battery and other environmentally friendly technologies are two pathways to contributing immediately to the environment.

“While we remained focused on capital expenditure and working capital management, we continued our commitment to improving the operational and environmental efficiency of our fleet through investments this past quarter in communications, hybrid battery technologies and strategic vessel acquisitions. A key element of our strategy going forward is the reduction of emissions through technology and operational efficiency. Our vessels operating with hybrid technology throughout 2020 achieved baseline emissions reductions as high as 18%. In addition, approximately 10% of our vessels were engaged in renewable energy activities during the year.

“Our fleet development program includes the sale or recycling of vessels that are deemed uneconomic or that do not meet our future strategic goals, and the acquisition of high-specification tonnage that meets our carbon reduction and financial return objectives. In 2020, we completed the disposal of 56 vessels and other assets for total proceeds of $38.3 million, and we acquired 11 modern crew boats that are more fuel efficient than our current fleet for $5.3 million.

“During the year, we reduced outstanding debt by $96.2 million and decreased our net debt position by $23.8 million. We ended the year with $155.2 million of cash on hand.

“I want to extend my gratitude to the many dedicated women and men across Tidewater who are responsible for the company’s notable performance in such a challenging year. Through their commitment and talent I am confident that we will continue to transform Tidewater, and that we will leverage opportunities for growth as the renewable energy market evolves and the hydrocarbon energy market normalizes.”
