HOUSTON -- March 3, 2014

McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE: MDR) (“McDermott” or the “Company”) today
announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended
December 31, 2013. The Company reported a fourth quarter net loss of $324
million or $1.37 per fully diluted share, and an operating loss of $316
million, of which approximately 80% relates to cash outlays that were made
prior to the fourth quarter. The Company reported fourth quarter revenues of
$517 million, a decrease of 48% percent compared to $996 million in the
corresponding period of 2012. The Company reported fourth quarter 2012 net
income of $41 million, or $0.17 per fully diluted share, and operating income
of $77 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported revenues of $2.7
billion, compared to $3.6 billion for the year ended December 31, 2012. The
Company reported an operating loss of $465 million in the year ended December
31, 2013 compared to operating income of $319 million in the year ended
December 31, 2012.

Of the $316 million fourth quarter operating loss, approximately $134 million
was related to commercial issues, approximately $80 million was related to
operational matters, approximately $86 million was related to asset
impairments and approximately $16 million was related to restructuring charges
in the Atlantic Segment and a corporate reorganization.

On December 16, 2013, David Dickson assumed the role of President and Chief
Executive Officer and was concurrently appointed to McDermott’s Board of
Directors. Mr. Dickson, age 46, joined the Company on October 31, 2013 as
Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. He has approximately 24
years of offshore oilfield engineering and construction business experience,
including 11 years of experience with Technip S.A. and its subsidiaries. From
September 2008 until October 2013, he served as President of Technip USA Inc.,
with oversight responsibilities for all of Technip’s North American
operations.

“During the fourth quarter, we worked through a number of legacy issues,
reviewed our backlog in light of new developments and recorded a number of
charges, most of which related to prior period cash outlays,” said Mr.
Dickson. “Although the Company’s fourth quarter results are disappointing, we
are taking the right steps to stabilize the business and drive long-term
growth, profitability and shareholder value creation as a leading global
offshore and subsea contractor.

McDermott is at a strategic inflection point, and we are making good progress
toward improving our internal processes and risk management. We secured a new
financing commitment to enhance our financial flexibility and are increasing
operational efficiency through a new organizational design, while taking the
necessary steps to deliver improved and predictable execution. Driving
profitability and cash flow remains our top priority, and we are reevaluating
our capital expenditures, reducing our cost structure and exploring the
divestiture of non-core assets to achieve that goal.”

Dickson added, “McDermott is a strong company with a dynamic and talented team
in place to ensure that our organization is positioned to succeed going
forward. We are encouraged by a number of important customer wins during the
quarter, along with an attractive pipeline of potential projects. McDermott
delivers tremendous value to its customers, and we look forward to
capitalizing on the Company’s strategic advantages in the marketplace to
create value for our shareholders.”

Fourth Quarter Project Update

Of the approximately $134 million of operating losses related to commercial
issues, key drivers included changes to the Company’s recovery estimates on
projects with unapproved change orders or claims previously submitted to
customers. In most cases, the work was performed and cost was incurred prior
to the fourth quarter. Specifically, the Company recorded a $91 million loss
related to unapproved claims on two projects in the quarter.

Of the approximately $80 million of operating losses related to operational
matters, approximately $50 million was attributable to our typical sales,
general and administrative costs. In addition, a key driver was a $28 million
loss related to a deepwater pipelay project offshore Malaysia, primarily due
to mechanical downtime on one of its vessels. The vessel has since resumed
work, and the customer reached first oil last month. The project is expected
to be completed in March 2014.

The Company also revised its expectations with respect to the Papa Terra
project offshore Brazil, primarily due to weather and operating conditions
that prevented the Company from making sufficient progress during the quarter.
The Company now expects the project to be approximately breakeven. As of
today, the platform is installed and the marine activities are nearly
complete. The Company is in the process of demobilizing the equipment and
vessels from the field and expects to be substantially complete with the
project later this month.

The Ichthys subsea field development project, the largest subsea project in
the industry at its time of award, is on schedule. Over the last quarter, the
Company has conducted an extensive review of the project with experienced
individuals who have joined the Company and has concluded that the project is
expected to be completed on time and profitably. Detailed engineering is
substantially complete and fabrication is well underway to support the
offshore installation program, which is scheduled to commence in the second
half of 2014.

Contract Backlog Summary

As of December 31, 2013, the Company’s backlog was approximately $4.8 billion,
compared to $4.6 billion at September 30, 2013. Of the December 31, 2013
backlog, approximately 59% related to offshore operations and approximately
41% related to subsea operations. Bookings during the fourth quarter totaled
$737 million and included EPCI work in the Middle East, a transportation and
installation contract in Brunei and a charter of the North Ocean 102 vessel in
Brazil.

At the end of the fourth quarter, the Company had $3.6 billion in bids and
change orders outstanding. The Company is targeting to bid over $16 billion in
new projects over the next five quarters. In total, the Company’s revenue
pipeline was $24 billion as of December 31, 2013.

Business Improvement Initiatives

The Company is implementing a new organizational design and will focus on:
strengthening the balance sheet and instilling financial discipline; aligning
with customers and building strong customer relationships; improving its cost
structure and increasing competitiveness; and building a performance-oriented
and highly accountable culture.

The new organizational design will orient the Company around its offshore and
subsea operations. Scott Cummins, who has more than 25 years of experience at
McDermott in various operational and management roles, will lead the offshore
business. Tony Duncan, who joined McDermott last year with nearly 30 years of
industry experience, including 15 years of management experience with tier-one
marine contractors, will lead the Company’s subsea business.

These business leaders will be responsible for the strategic direction of the
business lines and for aligning the Company with customer needs. They will
also provide oversight and project execution support for the Company’s
regional operations. The business leaders will be accountable for their
operating and financial results and for efficiently allocating assets among
the regional operations. This new global structure is designed to leverage
McDermott’s strengths as a worldwide contractor to improve consistency and
allow more efficient flow across the organization.

The offshore and subsea businesses will be supported by teams from four
regions: Americas, North Sea and Africa, Asia Pacific and the Middle East. The
regions will have P&L responsibility and will be accountable for business
acquisition process, execution and cost management. They will also manage the
Company’s shared services of operating and administrative functions required
by both business lines.

The Company is also reevaluating and deferring capital expenditures to improve
strategic alignment, to reduce its cost structure, while it also plans to
divest non-core assets.

Balance Sheet Summary

As of December 31, 2013, McDermott reported total assets of approximately $2.8
billion. Included in this amount is approximately $150 million in cash and
cash equivalents, restricted cash and investments. As of Friday, February 28,
2014, the Company has approximately $335 million in cash and cash equivalents,
restricted cash and investments.

The Company’s $950 million credit facility had no funded borrowings as of
December 31, 2013. Since year-end, the Company has drawn approximately $250
million on the facility and has repaid $32 million to retire maturing debt
related to the North Ocean 102 vessel.

The Company also announced today that it has entered into a commitment letter
with Goldman Sachs that provides for $950 million aggregate principal amount
of new senior secured financing, which is expected to be available while it
negotiates an amendment to its existing credit facility. The financing
contemplated in the commitment letter would have a term of five years and the
proceeds would provide funded capacity for letters of credit, as well as
funding for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Upon completion of an amendment to the existing credit facility, the Company
expects to terminate the new financing commitment. If the existing credit
facility is not amended as contemplated, the Company believes that the new
financing commitment, taken together with projected cash flows from
operations, would be sufficient to fund the Company’s liquidity and letter of
credit requirements for more than a year.

During the fourth quarter, the Company’s total debt position decreased to $89
million, due to a quarterly principal payment on its North Ocean 102 loan
facility. In addition, total equity was $1.4 billion, or approximately 50% of
total assets.

Outlook

The Company is withdrawing prior financial guidance, and suspending guidance
for the foreseeable future, while the Company is implementing its
organizational changes and closing out legacy projects.
