         EPS of $0.09; $1.0 Billion of New Bookings Added to Backlog

Business Wire

HOUSTON -- May 08, 2013

McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE: MDR) (“McDermott” or the “Company”) today
reported net income of $20.6 million, or $0.09 per fully diluted share, for
the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The results for the first quarter 2013
compared to income from continuing operations of $61.9 million, or $0.25 per
fully diluted share, in the corresponding period of 2012. Weighted average
common shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis were approximately 239.2
million and 237.3 million in the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012,

McDermott’s revenues were $807.5 million for the first quarter 2013, an
increase of 11 percent compared to $727.7 million in the corresponding period
of 2012. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to an approximately
$48.6 million increase in revenues in the Atlantic segment as a result of
increased fabrication activity, coupled with increased revenues in the Asia
Pacific and Middle East segments.

The Company’s operating income in the first quarter 2013 was $53.0 million, a
decrease of $27.2 million compared to $80.2 million in the first quarter 2012.
The first quarter 2013 results were affected by operating losses in the Middle
East and Atlantic segments, partially offset by stronger operating income in
our Asia Pacific segment. In the first quarter 2013, operating losses in the
Middle East segment totaled approximately $18.5 million compared to operating
income of $34.7 million for the corresponding prior year period, a decline
primarily attributable to execution plan changes on a project at an advanced
stage of completion, which resulted in cost increases associated with hook-up
activities and the use of third-party vessels. In addition, the decline in
operating income was due to lower asset utilization and project activity
compared to the prior year. The operating loss for the Atlantic segment
changed by approximately $4.4 million to a loss of approximately $16.4 million
due to increased support costs associated with lower marine asset utilization.

Operating income in the Asia Pacific segment increased approximately $30.5
million to $88.0 million in the first quarter 2013, primarily due to the
successful execution and change orders on a key project as well as cost
savings on other projects offset by approximately $4.1 million in increased
costs estimates for one of our marine subsea projects. In addition, an
approximately $12.3 million or $0.05 per diluted share gain on the sale of the
DB 26 was recognized during the quarter for the segment.

The Company’s other expense for the first quarter 2013 was $1.4 million, a
reduction of $11.9 million compared to other income of $10.5 million in the
first quarter 2012, primarily due to net losses on foreign currency related

During the quarter, the Company booked approximately $1.0 billion in new
orders including two projects in the Arabian Gulf. In addition, at March 31,
2013 the Company had approximately $5.6 billion in bids and change orders
outstanding. The Company has also identified $10.1 billion in target project
opportunities that the Company expects to bid in the next five quarters.

At March 31, 2013, the Company’s backlog was $5.3 billion, compared to $5.8
billion and $5.1 billion at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2012,
respectively. Of the March 31, 2013 backlog, approximately $428.9 million was
derived from five projects currently in a loss position, of which 93 percent
relate to a project in the Asia Pacific segment and the five-year charter in
Brazil. In addition, the backlog includes approximately $165.6 million for one
project under deferred profit recognition.

“Although the final phases of an otherwise well-executed project in the Middle
East challenged us this quarter, I am pleased with our successful completion
of a key project in the Asia Pacific segment,” said Stephen M. Johnson,
Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of McDermott.
“With the sale of the DB 26 and our expansion of our subsea engineering talent
through the acquisition of DeepSea group, McDermott is making steady progress
on its strategic transformation. We remain focused on winning work for which
we can provide a cost-effective solution and execute successfully for our
customers and for our shareholders.”
