Bruno Chabas, CEO of SBM Offshore commented:

"We have delivered a steady performance in the first quarter, with revenues in
line with  expectations. Tendering  activity has  accelerated, but  we  remain 
conservative in our  view of  the speed of  project awards.  The first  module 
integration on Cidade de Illhabela at Brasa was a major milestone for the yard
and testament to  SBM's commitment  to the facility  and to  local content  in 
Brazil.Additionally, we are pleased with the delivery of the brownfield Kikeh
extension project,  the  outcome  of  the  Deep  Panuke  settlement,  and  the 
additional US$400 million in new financing.

The publication of the findings of our internal investigation into potentially
improper sales practices was  a significant step forward,  and we now look  to 
the public  authorities to  complete their  work.SBM has  striven to  address 
compliance and ethical conduct, and I am proud of the way everyone at SBM  has 
embraced this program.We recognize that  our clients value our approach,  and 
we look to the future with confidence."

Year-to-date 2014 Directional^1 revenue came  to US$782 million versus  US$814 
million in  the year-ago  period  due to  strong  performance in  the  Turnkey 
segment in the first half of 2013 and a different mix of Turnkey sales and  JV 
interests in  projects. Specifically,  the first  quarter of  2013 saw  strong 
revenue contributions from the  now completed OSX 2  (turnkey sale), Fram  and 
Cidade de Paraty projects,  while in the  first quarter of  2014 the new  FPSO 
Stones project in the absence of a  JV partner is not generating income  under 
Directional^1 rules. Directional^1 Lease & Operate and Turnkey segment revenue
came in at US$237 million and US$545  million respectively, up 2% and down  6% 

Year-to-date 2014 IFRS revenue totalled US$1,251 million versus US$972 million
in the year-ago period. Showing year-over-year improvements due to the  effect 
of finance leases  on FPSOs  Stones, and Cidade  de Maricá  & Saquarema,  IFRS 
Turnkey segment revenue came in at  US$1,017 million, up 31%. Following  first 
oil of the FPSO Cidade de Paraty, Production Acceptance Notice of Deep Panuke,
and despite the decommissioning of FPSOs Brasil and Kuito IFRS Lease & Operate
segment revenue  came  in  at US$234  million,  up  18%. All  of  these  lease 
contracts are treated under  IAS 17 as outright  sales projects with  deferred 

Under new IFRS 10, 11 &  12 consolidation standards for joint ventures  (JVs), 
reported net debt as of December  31, 2013 was restated from US$2,691  million 
(previous IFRS) to US$3,400 million (new IFRS). As of March 31, 2014 net  debt 
under new IFRS standards increased to US$3,811 million reflecting  significant 
investments in the ongoing lease  and operate projects under construction.  It 
is worth noting that  bank covenants will continue  to be calculated based  on 
prior IFRS  standards, therefore  the impact  to SBM  Offshore's covenants  is 
neutral. The Company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalent  balances 
of US$195 million versus US$208 million at the end of 2013. Committed, undrawn
credit facilities stood at US$971 million, which compares to US$1,142  million 
as of December 31, 2013.

Capital expenditure and  investments on  finance lease  contracts through  the 
first quarter of 2014 amounted to a combined total of US$599 million.

On 2 May  2014, a US$400  million loan for  the financing of  the Deep  Panuke 
platform was  secured from  three international  banks with  the intention  to 
launch a US Private Placement (USPP) in the second half of 2014.

IFRS 10, 11 & 12

New consolidation  standards for  joint ventures  have been  introduced as  of 
January 1, 2014 ending proportional consolidation of JVs for SBM Offshore.  As 
disclosed in its 2013  Annual Report, the Company  is now required to  account 
for its fully controlled JVs on  a fully consolidated basis (mostly  impacting 
all Brazilian  FPSOs) and  apply equity  accounting to  the Company's  jointly 
controlled JVs (mostly Angolan FPSOs). These new standards (IFRS 10, 11 &  12) 
apply to the income statement, statement  of financial position and cash  flow 

This implementation has a limited impact  on SBM Offshore's IFRS revenues  and 
almost nil to net income attributable to shareholders. The Company's  reported 
total asset value has increased significantly by approximately US$1.6 billion.
Included in today's press release  are the Company's 2013 pro-forma  financial 

To ensure that this change of  consolidation rules under IFRS does not  affect 
the understanding of the  Company's performance, Directional^1 reporting  will 
be based  on proportional  consolidation for  all Lease  & Operate  contracts. 
Compared to previous Directional^1  reporting the change  is limited to  FPSOs 
Aseng and  Capixaba  previously  fully  consolidated  and  now  proportionally 
consolidated  as  all  other  Lease  &  Operate  contracts.  This  change   to 
Directional^1 reporting led to a limited negative impact of US$72 million  and 
US$35 million on FY13 Directional^1  Revenue and EBIT respectively (no  impact 
on Directional^1 net income attributable to shareholders).

Effective January 1, 2014 SBM Directional^1 reporting principles are as

  oDirectional^1 reporting represents an additional non-GAAP disclosure to
    IFRS reporting
  oDirectional^1 reporting assumes all lease contracts are classified as
    operating leases
  oDirectional^1 reporting assumes all JVs related to lease contracts are
    consolidated on a proportional basis
  oDirectional^1 reporting is limited to restating the consolidated income
    statement however no restatement of the statement of financial position is

A summary of the main effects of IFRS 10, 11 & 12 for 2013 are as follows:

Project Review

FPSO Cidade de Ilhabela (Brazil)

Integration of the process modules for FPSO Cidade de Ilhabela has  progressed 
at the  Brasa yard  in Brazil  with  the successful  completion of  the  first 
lifting campaign  achieved using  the Pelicano  1 heavy  lift floating  crane. 
Start-up of the facility continues to be expected in the second half of 2014.

FPSOs Cidade de Maricá & Saquarema (Brazil)

Construction of Cidade de Maricá & Saquarema has progressed with refurbishment
and conversion continuing at the shipyard in China. Fabrication of the modules
is concurrently taking place in  Brazil. Start-up of the facilities  continues 
to be expected at the end of 2015 and early 2016 respectively.

FPSO Stones (US Gulf of Mexico)

Construction of  FPSO Stones  progressed,  with refurbishment  and  conversion 
continuing at the shipyard in Singapore. The Operations & Maintenance contract
was signed  between SBM  Offshore and  Shell Offshore  Inc. post-period.  When 
installed at almost 3 kilometers of water  depth, the FPSO Stones will be  the 
deepest offshore production facility of any type in the world. Start-up of the
facility continues to be expected in the first half of 2016.

FPSO N'Goma (Angola)

Construction of FPSO N'Goma progressed,  with refurbishment and conversion  at 
the shipyard in Singapore completed. The vessel left the quayside in Singapore
in early May and set sail for Angola where conversion will be completed at the
company's JV  Paenal yard  and start-up  of the  facility is  expected in  the 
second half of 2014.

FPSO Kikeh (Malaysia)

SBM Offshore and its joint venture  partner MISC Bhd achieved a key  milestone 
recently with the  start-up of the  Siakap North-Petai (SNP)  field through  a 
tie-back to the Kikeh FPSO.

The SNP field,  a unitized development  operated by Murphy  Sabah Oil  Co.,Ltd 
(Murphy), is located offshore Malaysia  in water depth of approximately  1,300 
metres. Murphy announced first oil production  from the SNP field on  February 
27, 2014.

The event is an  important milestone for a  project that commenced in  January 
2012 at SBM Offshore's  Kuala Lumpur office and  involved the fabrication  and 
offshore lifting of four  new modules and  approximately 340,000 man-hours  of 
offshore construction and commissioning work done on a live FPSO.

Turrets Mooring Systems

The three large  complex turrets for  Prelude FLNG, Quad  204 and Ichthys  are 
progressing well and  on schedule  at their respective  stages of  completion. 
Fabrication work  on  Prelude FLNG  is  progressing in  Dubai,  with  expected 
delivery at the end of 2014. Integration of Quad 204 with the vessel continues
in South Korea, with expected delivery in the first half of 2014. Engineering,
procurement and construction of the Ichthys turret continue to progress at the
yard in Singapore, with expected delivery in the first half of 2015.


FPSO Brasil

Successful end of  production of  the vessel  was completed  during the  first 
quarter after  over  eleven  years  of operations  for  Petrobras  in  Brazil. 
Decommissioning activities have  commenced and  are expected  to be  completed 
during the  third quarter  of 2014.  Future conversion  opportunities for  the 
vessel are limited and she will be considered for scrapping.

FPSO Kuito

Decommissioning of the vessel is in progress and expected to be completed
during the third quarter of 2014 after over fourteen years of operations for
Chevron in Angola. Future conversion opportunities for the vessel are limited
and she will be considered for scrapping.

Post-Period Events

Deep Panuke (Canada)

SBM Offshore and  Encana have amicably  settled claims arising  from the  Deep 
Panuke project offshore  Nova Scotia.  Under the  pertinent arrangements,  SBM 
Offshore will receive an increased lease rate. The legal proceedings commenced
will be dismissed.

SBM Offshore do Brasil Advisory Board

Eduardo Eugenio Gouvêa Vieira has been appointed as President of the Company's
Advisory Board in Brazil. The Gouvêa Vieira family is one of the pioneers of
the oil industry in Brazil and Mr. Gouvêa Vieira currently serves as President
of the Federation of Industries of the State of Rio de Janeiro (FIRJAN).

Divestment Update

The Company continues  to market  the DSCV  SBM Installer,  a newbuild  Diving 
Support and Construction Vessel (DSCV). The  FPSO Falcon and VLCC Alba  remain 
held for sale and the disposal of the last of three Monaco office buildings is

Directional^1 Backlog

Directional^1 Backlog as of March 31, 2014 was US$21.7 billion.


The internal investigation into potentially improper sales practices has  been 
concluded, and on  April 2, 2014  SBM Offshore published  the findings of  its 
internal investigation.  The  Company  remains in  active  dialogue  with  the 
relevant authorities and more information  on the progress of our  discussions 
with them will be reported in due course.

Outlook and Guidance

Following the implementation of IFRS 10, 11 & 12 in early 2014,  Directional^1 
reporting has  been  adjusted  by approximately  US$100  million  of  reported 
revenue to reflect all vessel JVs on a proportionally consolidated basis.  The 
adjustment relates exclusively  to FPSOs  Aseng (60% SBM  share) and  Capixaba 
(80% SBM share),  which previously were  fully consolidated and  are now  only 
proportionally consolidated.  This  results  in an  otherwise  unchanged  2014 
Directional^1 revenue outlook of  US$3.3 billion, of  which US$2.3 billion  is 
expected in the Turnkey and US$1.0 billion in the Lease & Operate segments.
