SBM Offshore Full-Year Results 2012

SBM Offshore Full-Year Results 2012 
SCHIEDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwire) -- 02/14/13 --  
Press release 
PERFORMANCE & PROGRESS 14 February 2013 
As in 2011, the 2012 results are overshadowed by the impact of
impairments and
provisions for two legacy projects, which hide the
good underlying performance
in the core FPSO business. Despite
falling short of expectations, revenues were
up 17.1% on 2011 at a
record $3.7 billion, while underlying EBIT margins were in line with
or above expectations. Consistent with the core FPSO strategy
announced in 2012, GustoMSC was divested in the fourth quarter.
Record financing
levels were achieved, notably with the $1.1 billion
project loan for Ilhabela,
and the $ 500 million US Private Placement
for Anchieta. In December, the Company moved further towards a
solution of the Yme MOPUstor(TM) legacy project
and restored the
balance sheet through an equity injection by cornerstone investor
HAL. Order intake was slow, in line with the industry, as a
of delays in contract awards. 
Commenting on the results, Bruno Chabas, CEO of SBM Offshore, said: 
"For SBM Offshore, 2012 was tougher than we had expected. Even so, we
made significant progress toward unlocking the outstanding potential
of our Company.
In vital respects, such as strategy, structure, ways
of working, increased compliance focus and a renewed management team,
SBM is being transformed. As we move towards closure of our legacy
projects, I am convinced that the quality of performance being
delivered by so many colleagues across the Company will begin
manifest itself in our financial results." 
