FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/28/17 -- SEACOR Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CKH) (the "Company") today announced its results for its fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

For the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, net loss attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $215.9 million ($12.76 per diluted share) and $68.8 million ($3.94 per diluted share), respectively. Results for the year ended December 31, 2016 were significantly impacted by $160.3 million ($9.49 per diluted share) of net losses related to certain impairments and other non-cash charges, including $77.8 million related to marking to fair value certain vessels owned by the Company's Offshore Marine Services segment (SEACOR Marine Holdings Inc.), $19.2 million related to the impairment of intangible assets and goodwill associated with the restructuring of the Company's emergency and crisis services business (Witt O'Brien's), and $21.2 million resulting from marking the Company's investment in Dorian LPG Ltd. ("Dorian") to the December 31, 2016 share price of $8.21 from a price of $11.77 at the end of 2015. Details related to these charges can be found under "Impairments and Other Non-cash Charges" below.

Operating income before depreciation and amortization ("OIBDA" - see disclosure related to Non-GAAP measures in the statements of loss and segment information tables herein) was $102.8 million in 2016 compared with $167.6 million in 2015, excluding impairment charges of $150.4 million and $20.5 million, respectively.

For the quarters ended December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, net loss attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $93.7 million ($5.52 per diluted share) and $39.8 million ($2.35 per diluted share), respectively. OIBDA was $30.8 million in the fourth quarter compared with $28.5 million in the preceding quarter, excluding impairment charges of $98.8 million and $30.4 million, respectively. A comparison of results for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 with the preceding quarter ended September 30, 2016 is included in the "Highlights for the Quarter" discussion below.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, net loss attributable to SEACOR Holdings Inc. was $56.9 million ($3.36 per diluted share).

Charles Fabrikant, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"Our operating income before depreciation, amortization and impairments was slightly better than the preceding quarter although those results do not deserve accolades.

During the past 12 months, our Offshore Marine Services' customers cut back on exploration, development, maintenance, and deferred regulatory requirements when possible. The cutbacks were indiscriminate, impacting projects in deep water and shelf. With the exception of Saudi Arabia and the eastern Mediterranean, every geographic region suffered. The "dismal" outlook prophesied in my annual letter of last April was, sadly, correct. I do think 2017 offers better prospects for activity on the shelf, more dollars for maintenance, and attention to regulatory obligations. I also believe that by the end of 2017, or early 2018, activity will increase in Mexico. The potential is mostly in shallow water. Unfortunately, the prospects for deep water and frontier drilling are still bleak. I also believe that the sale of mature properties, which are no longer major holdings for large oil companies, to "independents" could eventually bring activity as new owners are more likely to focus on squeezing out additional barrels from aging installations. Finally, based on published data, 25 FPSO's are due to be placed in service between 2017 through 2019, and there will be 238 platforms installed although some will be quite simple and not manned.

In short, I think there is reason to be somewhat optimistic now, although I make this statement with considerable trepidation, particularly because a swoon in oil prices could easily destroy confidence and suffocate a recovery. Based on our assessment of opportunity, we are activating some equipment which has previously been idle, adding reactivation and operating expenses to future periods. There is no guarantee that day rates in the short run will justify this decision as current market rates are unrewarding.

Our inland river business also bucked headwinds for most of 2016. As noted last April, there is a surfeit of equipment due to the reduced activity in transporting coal as well as sand used in shale drilling ("fracking"). In the last few weeks, we have seen demand for barges to transport sand but the overhang of equipment is still too great to be optimistic. Ironically, the prospects for increased grain exports from South America, which could hurt our business in the United States, could be a positive for our South American joint venture, which mostly moves grain and grain products from Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay to Argentina and Uruguay for export.

Given the impact of impairment charges on 2016 results, a comment is in order. The impairment charges covered a range of assets and investments in our joint ventures. As noted in last April's letter, an impairment analysis is not an exact science. Our marks to "fair value" in 2016 are based on the best information available to us. Time will tell if these marks are also reflective of long-term value."

Highlights for the Quarter
Offshore Marine Services ("OMS") - Operating loss was $82.7 million compared with $41.1 million in the preceding quarter. As a consequence of continuing difficult market conditions, OMS recognized impairment charges of $69.1 million in the fourth quarter and $29.2 million in the preceding quarter primarily associated with its anchor handling towing supply fleet. OIBDA, excluding impairment charges, was $0.2 million on operating revenues of $44.4 million compared with $2.4 million on operating revenues of $54.1 million in the preceding quarter.

Excluding wind farm utility vessels, but including cold-stacked vessels (those that are not currently available for active service), utilization of the fleet decreased from 47% to 39% and average rates per day worked decreased by 10% from $10,089 to $9,093. Days available for charter were 9% higher in the fourth quarter primarily due to the acquisition of eleven vessels at a bankruptcy auction during the preceding quarter. These vessels were idle when purchased and are still not being marketed, hence contributing to the overall decline in fleet utilization. This release includes a table presenting time charter operating data by vessel class.

Operating results from international regions, excluding losses on asset dispositions and impairments, were $2.8 million lower compared with the preceding quarter. Time charter revenues were $5.7 million lower primarily due to the conclusion of several term charters and unfavorable changes in currency exchange rates. On a total fleet basis, excluding wind farm utility vessels but including cold-stacked vessels, utilization declined from 67% to 64%, and average rates per day worked decreased from $9,606 to $9,073. Operating expenses were $5.6 million lower compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to the effect of cold-stacking vessels, net fleet dispositions, favorable changes in currency exchange rates, and the repositioning of vessels between geographic regions. General and administrative expenses during the fourth quarter included a $3.1 million provision for doubtful accounts. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had nine of 89 owned and leased-in vessels cold-stacked in international regions compared with six of 96 as of September 30, 2016. As of December 31, 2016, the cold-stacked vessels in the international roster consisted of two anchor handling towing supply vessels, one fast support vessel, two supply vessels, two specialty vessels and two wind farm utility vessels. On December 31, 2016, the Company retired and removed from service seven vessels (one anchor handling towing supply, two fast support, three supply and one specialty).

Operating results in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, excluding losses on asset dispositions and impairments, were $1.8 million lower compared with the preceding quarter. Time charter revenues were $1.8 million lower for the U.S. anchor handling towing supply vessels due to weaker market conditions and $1.8 million lower for the liftboat fleet also due to weaker market conditions and in part due to seasonality. On a total fleet basis, including cold-stacked vessels, utilization declined from 14% to 7%, and average rates per day worked decreased from $13,810 to $9,316. Operating expenses were $2.9 million lower compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to the effect of cold-stacking vessels. General and administrative expenses during the fourth quarter included a $1.1 million provision for doubtful accounts. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had 40 of 44 owned and leased-in vessels cold-stacked in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico compared with 37 of 45 as of September 30, 2016. As of December 31, 2016, the cold-stacked vessels consisted of nine anchor handling towing supply vessels,14 fast support vessels, one supply vessel, one specialty vessel and 15 liftboats. On December 31, 2016, the Company retired and removed from service one anchor handling towing supply vessel. During the fourth quarter, the Company sold two newly built shallow draft supply vessels out of its U.S.-flag fleet to its joint venture in Mexico, which commenced charters on January 1, 2017. Subsequent to December 31, 2016, the Company sold two U.S.-flag liftboats that will be exported out of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

Foreign currency losses of $1.1 million in the preceding quarter were primarily due to the weakening of the pound sterling in relation to the euro underlying certain debt balances.

Other, net losses of $1.8 million in the fourth quarter primarily related to a reserve for a note receivable from a third party following a decline in the underlying collateral value.

Equity in losses of 50% or less owned companies of $6.0 million in the fourth quarter were primarily due to impairment charges of $6.4 million associated with the joint ventured foreign-flag liftboat fleet.

Inland River Services - Operating income was $8.7 million compared with an operating loss of $1.3 million in the preceding quarter. OIBDA was $15.3 million on operating revenues of $53.0 million compared with $5.0 million on operating revenues of $41.1 million in the preceding quarter.

Operating results, excluding gains (losses) on asset dispositions and impairments, were $8.7 million higher compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to improved activity levels associated with the fall harvest and favorable operating conditions. An oversupply of equipment, however, continues to place downward pressure on freight rates. During the fourth quarter, the Company placed 34 newly built dry-cargo barges in service and acquired five harbor boats and other fleeting and terminal assets as an expansion of its fleeting and terminal business.

Foreign currency losses of $1.1 million in the fourth quarter were primarily due to the weakening of the Colombian peso in relation to the U.S. dollar underlying certain of the Company's intercompany lease obligations.

Equity in losses of 50% or less owned companies of $11.3 million in the fourth quarter included a $7.7 million impairment charge for an other-than-temporary decline in the fair value of the Company's investment in its 50% owned joint venture operating on the Parana-Paraguay River Waterway, SCFCo. In addition, operating results for SCFCo were lower as a consequence of seasonality and continued weakness in the iron ore and grain markets.

Shipping Services - Operating income was $7.6 million compared with $13.9 million in the preceding quarter. OIBDA was $16.5 million (of which $5.3 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $59.6 million compared with $22.1 million (of which $8.0 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $57.4 million in the preceding quarter.

Operating results were $6.3 million lower in the fourth quarter compared with the preceding quarter primarily due to regulatory drydocking costs and related out-of-service time for one U.S.-flag product tanker and higher personnel and mobilization costs for one newly built U.S.-flag product tanker placed into service during the fourth quarter. Subsequent to December 31, 2016, the Company took delivery of one newly built U.S.-flag product tanker, one U.S.-flag harbor tug and two foreign-flag harbor tugs.

Other, net losses of $5.5 million in the preceding quarter were primarily due to impairment charges related to a cost method investment in a foreign container shipping company.

Equity in losses of 50% or less owned companies of $2.6 million in the fourth quarter were primarily due to charges of $1.9 million upon the Company's purchase of a controlling interest from its partner in a joint venture that had refurbished a U.S.-flag offshore tug.

Illinois Corn Processing - Segment profit was $5.8 million (of which $1.7 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $43.2 million compared with $2.0 million (of which $0.6 million was attributable to noncontrolling interests) on operating revenues of $44.0 million in the preceding quarter. Segment profit was $3.8 million higher primarily due to an improvement in industry-wide fuel ethanol margins.

Witt O'Brien's and Other - Segment losses of $37.4 million in the fourth quarter were primarily due to intangible asset and goodwill impairment charges of $29.6 million associated with the restructuring of the Company's emergency and crisis services business ("Witt O'Brien's") and impairment charges of $5.1 million related to a cost method investment in a foreign industrial aircraft company. Witt O'Brien's announced the launch of a strategic growth program to focus on core services by eliminating non-core and lower margin businesses. Witt O'Brien's core services include providing resilience solutions for key areas of critical infrastructure, including, but not limited to, government, energy, transportation, healthcare and education, in the United States and abroad.

Debt Extinguishment Gains (Losses) - During the fourth quarter, the Company purchased $12.7 million in aggregate principal amount of its 7.375% Senior Notes for $12.8 million and purchased $10.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its 2.5% Convertible Senior Notes for $9.8 million.

Marketable Security Gains (Losses) - Marketable security results during 2016 were primarily attributable to the Company's investment in 9,177,135 shares of Dorian, a publicly traded company listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "LPG." The Company recognized unrealized gains related to Dorian of $20.3 million in the fourth quarter compared with unrealized losses of $9.6 million in the preceding quarter. The closing share price of Dorian was $8.21 and $11.77 as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company's cost basis in Dorian is $13.66 per share. The closing share price of Dorian was $10.07 as of March 28, 2017.

The Company defines OIBDA as operating income (loss) for the applicable segment plus depreciation and amortization. The Company's measure of OIBDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measure.The Company, from time to time, discloses and discusses OIBDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, for certain of its operating segments in its public releases and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company defines OIBDA as operating income (loss) for the applicable segment plus depreciation and amortization. The Company's measure of OIBDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate OIBDA differently than the Company, which may limit its usefulness as a comparative measure. In addition, this measurement does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and is not a measure of the Company's ability to fund its cash needs. OIBDA is a financial metric used by management (i) as a supplemental internal measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; (ii) as a criteria for annual incentive bonuses paid to the Company officers and other shore-based employees; and (iii) to compare to the OIBDA of other companies when evaluating potential acquisitions.
