Pacific Drilling Announces Preliminary Second Quarter Results
Pacific Drilling S.A. (NYSE: PACD) (together with its subsidiaries, the “Company”) announces the following preliminary results for the second quarter 2017, in connection with the consent solicitation announced today. These results have not been reviewed by its independent auditors. Contract drilling revenue for the second quarter 2017 is expected to be in the range of $66.0 million to $68.0 million, compared to first quarter 2017 contract drilling revenue of $105.5 million. The decrease in revenues resulted primarily from the Pacific Santa Ana being offhire throughout the second quarter 2017, compared to the first quarter 2017, in which it earned revenue until completing its contract on January 31, 2017.
The Company expects a net loss for the second quarter 2017 in the range of $130.0 million to $140.0 million, compared to a net loss for the first quarter 2017 of $99.8 million and net income of $8.2 million for the second quarter 2016.
The Company’s cash balance, including $8.5 million in restricted cash, totaled $416.6 million as of June 30, 2017, and its aggregate outstanding principal amount of indebtedness was $3.0 billion (after accounting for the impact of group consolidation).
The Company expects to release its second quarter 2017 results in the first half of August and will not be holding an earnings conference call this quarter.
The foregoing financial results are estimates as of the date hereof of the Company’s current expectations and are subject to change. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these preliminary results as they are estimates as of the date hereof only.
