Tidewater Inc. announced revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 of $90.0 million and $173.5 million, respectively, compared with $102.3 million and $218.7 million, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. Tidewater's net losses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, were $29.5 million ($0.72 per common share) and $64.8 million ($1.59 per common share), respectively, compared with $110.6 million ($2.74 per common share) and $129.1 million ($3.21 per common share) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. Included in the net losses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 were severance expenses of $0.8 and $0.9 million, respectively; and a credit loss impairment credit of $1.0 million for both periods. Excluding these items, we would have reported a net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 of $29.7 million ($0.73 per common share) and $64.9 million ($1.59 per common share), respectively. Included in the net losses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 were $111.5 million and $121.8 million, respectively, in long-lived asset impairments, affiliate credit losses, affiliate guarantee obligations, and one-time severance expenses. Excluding these costs, we would have reported net income for the three months ended June 30, 2020 of $0.9 million ($0.02 per common share) and a net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2020 of $7.3 million (or $0.18 per common share).

Quintin Kneen, Tidewater’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Revenue, active vessels, average day rate, active utilization, and operating margin were all up on a consolidated basis in the second quarter. Individual geographic segments were mixed, but the overall trend and our outlook are constructive as we proceed through the remainder of the year. We continued our track record of generating meaningful free cash flow during the second quarter of 2021. During the second quarter, we generated $26.0 million of free cash flow, and over the trailing 12 months we have generated $84.0 million. The scalable shore base infrastructure we built over the past few years is helping us drive reliable and increasing free cash flow generation, as demonstrated by the substantial incremental operating income margins in the quarter.

“During the second quarter of 2021, revenue improved 7.7% sequentially, driven primarily by vessels reactivated in response to the increase in activity in the Europe and Mediterranean and West Africa regions. During the second quarter, we reactivated seven vessels, bringing the total number of vessel reactivations to 12 during the first six months of 2021.

“At the end of the second quarter, we had $135.2 million of principal outstanding on our senior secured notes, which are scheduled to mature in August 2022, along with $151.4 million of cash on the balance sheet. We continue to monitor the debt capital markets for the optimal timing of a potential refinance of all or a portion of these notes, as early repayment of this debt carries a significant pre-payment penalty. During the quarter, we decreased our net debt position by $21.1 million, ending the second quarter with $4.5 million of net debt on the balance sheet. We remain dedicated to our objective of meaningful free cash flow generation though the maturity of these notes and thereafter.

“Our ongoing fleet development program includes the sale or responsible recycling of vessels that are deemed uneconomic or which otherwise do not meet our future strategic goals, and during the second quarter we disposed of seven vessels and other assets for $18.6 million. We expect both the sale and recycling of vessels to taper off in the next 12 months as we work through the 14 vessels remaining in assets held for sale.

“Lastly, we continue to monitor the COVID-19 Delta variant. Similar to the steps we took in 2020 to protect our employees and our cash generation capability, we will take appropriate steps to continue to safeguard our employees and optimize our business as these later phases of the pandemic unfold. We have not seen a significant impact to our operations due to the Delta variant, although we were originally anticipating the additional costs of the pandemic to wane throughout 2021 and we now anticipate those costs to continue at the same level for the next few quarters. The new phase of the pandemic, however, doesn’t seem to be limiting broader market inertia and, in fact, we continue to see activity increase in most geographic regions.”
