(NYSE: BRS) today reported net income for the June 2014 quarter of $44.1 million, or $1.23 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, compared to net income of $26.9 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, in the same period a year ago.  Adjusted net income, which excludes special items and asset disposition effects, increased 30% to $47.4 million, or $1.32 per diluted share, for the June 2014 quarter, compared to $36.5 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, in the June 2013 quarter.  Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent ("adjusted EBITDAR"), which also excludes special items and asset disposition effects, increased 25% to $127.6 million for the June 2014 quarter compared to $102.5 million in the same period a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities increased 2.5% to $37.3 million for the three months ended June30, 2014 compared to $36.4 million for the same period a year ago.  The increase in adjusted EBITDAR, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share for the June 2014 quarter compared to the June 2013 quarter was primarily driven by:    oAn increase in activity in our Europe Business Unit, including the     commencement of Search and Rescue ("SAR") work under the U.K. Gap SAR     contract and the addition of Eastern Airways,   oThe startup of new contracts in Australia,   oA favorable shift in the mixto larger aircraft under contract that     benefited our operations in North America,   oThe recovery of $6.8 million froman original equipment manufacturer     ("OEM") provided in the form of maintenance credits resulting from a     settlement for aircraft performance issues and transportation costs and     benefited our Europe and Australia Business Units,   oThe reversal of $4.4 million in bad debt expense in our North America     Business Unit related to a client that had previously filed for bankruptcy     for which we have now settled and collected funds, and   oA favorable impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates, which     resulted in an increase to adjusted EBITDAR of $5.9 million.  Additionally, operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share, on an unadjusted and adjusted basis, were impacted by a $10.1 million increase in rent expense over the same quarter a year ago as we increased the number of leased aircraft.  "The strong operating performance we delivered in the first quarter is a true reflection of the passion and professionalism of our Bristow employees worldwide as we achieved Target Zero Safety while significantly growing revenue year over year and sequentially," said Jonathan E. Baliff, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bristow Group. "Our fiscal first quarter also delivered respectable margin improvements as we introduced more new technology large aircraft in ourEurope, Australia and North America Business Units. This strong start has us positioned for an excellent fiscal year 2015 as we prepare for UK SAR operations in fiscal year 2016 while also being laser-focused on serving our existing and new energy clients with safe, value added services."  FIRST QUARTER FY2015 RESULTS    oOperating revenue increased 22% to $437.3 million compared to $359.5     million in the same period a year ago.   oOperating income increased 16% to $65.2 million compared to $56.1 million     in the June 2013 quarter.   oGAAP net income increased 64% to $44.1 million, or $1.23 per diluted     share, compared to $26.9 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, in the June     2013 quarter.   oCash as of June30, 2014 totaled $133.8 million compared to $204.3 million     as of March31, 2014. Our total liquidity, including cash on hand and     availability on our revolving credit facility, was $331.3 million as of     June30, 2014 compared to $529.9 million as of March31, 2014.   oGAAP results for the June 2014 quarter were affected by the following     special items that are excluded from our adjusted non-GAAP financial     measures for the quarter:         o$1.0 million in costs related to the restructuring of our North          America Business Unit,        o$3.7 million in expense related to CEO succession,        o$0.9 million in premium and fees associated with the repurchase of          some of our 6 ¼% Senior Notes due 2022, and        oA gain on disposal of assets of $0.6 million compared to a loss of          $1.7 million in the June 2013 quarter.  FIRST QUARTER FY2015 BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS  Europe Business Unit  The operations of our Europe Business Unit have continued to expand since the June 2013 quarter with the net addition of five large aircraft. These additional aircraft, as well as an overall increase in activity with existing clients and under new contracts primarily in the Northern North Sea in the U.K. and Norway, resulted in $12.4 million of increased operating revenue. Additionally, we began operating the U.K. Gap SAR contract at two bases in June and July 2013 resulting in an increase of $12.0 million in operating revenue for the June 2014 quarter compared to the prior year quarter. Also, we acquired a 60% interest in Eastern Airways in February 2014, which contributed $39.8 million to the increase in operating revenue and $9.3 million in adjusted EBITDAR for the June 2014 quarter. Adjusted EBITDAR increased almost 66% year-over-year and adjusted EBITDAR margin increased to 34.1% in the June 2014 quarter compared to 30.3% in the June 2013 quarter primarily due to a benefit from the recovery of $4.8 million in maintenance credits from an OEM during the June 2014 quarter, partially offset by a decrease in earnings from unconsolidated affiliates of $2.7 million due to the sale of the FB Entities in July 2013. Sequential quarterly adjusted EBITDAR increased to $68.7 million in the June 2014 compared to $63.6 million in the March 2014 quarter while EBITDAR margins remained strong at 34.1% in June 2014 compared to 37.3% in theMarch 2014 quarter.  West Africa Business Unit  Pricing improvements drove revenue increases in our West Africa Business Unit, leading to a 5.5% increase in operating revenue for the June 2014 quarter compared to the June 2013 quarter. However, an increase in salaries and benefits due to annual salary increases, training costs associated with the introduction of a new aircraft type into this market that are not expected to impact expense in future quarters, unplanned aircraft maintenance and an increase in value-added taxes, resulted in a 13.8% decrease in adjusted EBITDAR compared with the June 2013 quarter as well as a decrease in adjusted EBITDAR margin to 25.6% for the June 2014 quarter compared to 31.3% for the June 2013 quarter.  North America Business Unit  An increase in medium and large aircraft in this business unit, the decrease in small aircraft on contract in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and the planned closure of Alaska operations drove the approximately flat revenue results in North America year over year. However, North America's adjusted EBITDAR and adjusted EBITDAR margin improved to $22.9 million and 39.7%, respectively, in the June 2014 quarter compared to $17.0 million and 29.2%, respectively, in the June 2013 quarter, driven by this change in the mix of fleet on contract in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico to more medium and large aircraft.A reversal of bad debt expense of $4.4 million also added to adjusted EBITDAR. This bad debt expense reversal related to a client that had previously filed for bankruptcy for which we have now settled and collected funds. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in earnings from unconsolidated affiliates, net of losses, related to our Canadian based Cougar investment. Sequentially, adjusted EBITDAR margin improved to 39.7% in the June 2014 quarter compared to 35.4% in the March 2014 quarter primarily due to similar year over year drivers. Before the benefit of the reversal of bad debt expense of $4.4 million, adjusted EBITDAR margin was 32.2% for the June 2014 quarter.  Australia Business Unit  Operating revenue for our Australia Business Unit increased 21.7% to $46.5 million in the June 2014 quarter from $38.2 million in the June 2013 quarter due to the start of new contracts, including the INPEX contract. Also, during the June 2014 quarter, we were able to recover $2.0 million in credits for maintenance expense from an OEM as settlements for aircraft performance and transportation costs. As a result of these contracts and maintenance expense credits, adjusted EBITDAR and adjusted EBITDAR margin increased in the June 2014 quarter to $11.0 million and 23.7%, respectively, from $6.8 million and 17.7%, respectively, in the June 2013 quarter and remained flat sequentially from the March 2014 quarter marginof 24.0%. We continue to incur salaries and benefits, depreciation, insurance, training and lease costs related to the new contracts which led to slight declines in operating income and operating margin.  Other International Business Unit  Operating revenue for our Other International Business Unit increased in the June 2014 quarter primarily due to increased activity in Trinidad and start-up of a contract in Tanzania, partially offset by a decline in aircraft on contract in Malaysia, Russia and Mexico. Adjusted EBITDAR and adjusted EBITDAR margin for the June 2014 quarter decreased to $14.7 million and 41.4%, respectively, compared to $22.2 million and 67.4%, respectively, in the June 2013 quarter, primarily due to a decrease in earnings from unconsolidated affiliates, net of losses, and the decline in activity in Malaysia, partially offset by increased activity in Trinidad and the new contract in Tanzania. The primary driver of the decrease in earnings from unconsolidated affiliates, net of losses, is a decrease in earnings from our investment in Lider in Brazil of $4.2 million in the June 2014 quarter resulting from a reduction in aircraft sales and higher income taxes as compared to the June 2013 quarter. Sequentially, earnings from our investment in Líder, excluding special items, decreased slightly as a result of foreign currency effects.  GUIDANCE  We are reaffirming our adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance for the full fiscal year 2015 of $4.70 to $5.20, reflecting our expectation of strong operating performance to continue through our fiscal year.  "The fiscal first quarter of 2015 exceeded our internal expectations as we delivered record results for a first quarter. We experienced business growth in key markets, with an impressive increase of 22% in operating revenue over the same period a year ago and 8% sequentially. Particularly impressive, is Bristow's ability to drive increases in Gross Cash Flow returns and BVA, while spending record amounts on capital expenditures for growth. Bristow has a talented team of professionals across the organization at all levels, all striving for excellence. This dedication is represented in the strength of our results and the continued expectation for growth," said John H. Briscoe, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Bristow Group.  As a reminder, our adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance excludes the effect of special items and asset dispositions because their timing and amounts are more variable and less predictable. Further, this guidance is based on current foreign currency exchange rates. In providing this guidance, we have not included the impact of any changes in accounting standards or significant acquisitions and divestitures. Events or other circumstances that we do not currently anticipate or cannot predict, including any issues involved with the return to full revenue service of the EC225 aircraft and changes in the market and industry, could result in earnings per share for fiscal year 2015 that are significantly above or below this guidance. Factors that could cause such changes are described below under the Forward-Looking Statements Disclosure and the Risk Factors in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 and annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014.  DIVIDEND AND SHARE REPURCHASE  On July 31, 2014, our Board of Directors approved our fourteenth consecutive quarterly dividend. This dividend of $0.32 per share will be paid on September 15, 2014 to shareholders of record on August 29, 2014 and is 113% higher than the first dividend paid in June 2011. Based on shares outstanding as of June30, 2014, the total quarterly dividend payment will be approximately $11.4 million. Additionally, during the June 2014 quarter, we spent $20.2 million to repurchase 270,598 shares of our Common Stock. Subsequently, in July 2014, we spent an additional $3.8 million to repurchase another 52,428 shares of our Common Stock. Since we first commenced a share repurchase program in December 2011, we have repurchased over 5% of our Common Stock. As of July 31, 2014, we had $31.7 million of repurchase authority remaining from $133.4 million that was authorized for share repurchases between November 5, 2013 and November 5, 2014.

A description of the adjustments to and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is as follows:                                       Three Months Ended                                      June 30,                                      2014           2013                                      (In thousands, except                                       per share amounts)  Adjusted operating income           $  69,304      $ 57,840  Gain (loss) on disposal of assets   610            (1,721)  Special items                       (4,722)        —  Operating income                    $  65,192      $ 56,119  Adjusted EBITDAR                    $  127,623     $ 102,473  Gain (loss) on disposal of assets   610            (1,721)  Special items                       (5,594)        —  Depreciation and amortization       (25,334)       (22,819)  Rent expense                        (33,116)       (23,061)  Interest expense                    (7,363)        (20,370)  Provision for income taxes          (11,823)       (7,590)  Net income                          $  45,003      $ 26,912  Adjusted net income                 $  47,369      $ 36,504  Gain (loss) on disposal of assets   483            (1,342)  Special items                       (3,743)        (8,276)  Net income attributable to          $  44,109      $ 26,886  Bristow Group  Adjusted diluted earnings per       $  1.32        $ 1.00  share  Gain (loss) on disposal of assets   0.01           (0.04)  Special items                       (0.10)         (0.23)  Diluted earnings per share          1.23           0.74                                Three Months Ended                                June 30, 2014                                                                     Adjusted                                 Adjusted                             Diluted                                             Adjusted    Adjusted                                Operating                            Earnings                                             EBITDAR     Net Income                                Income                               Per                                                                      Share                                (In thousands, except per share amounts)    North America               $ (1,033)    $ (1,033)   $ (671)     $ (0.02)    restructuring^(1)    CEO succession^(2)          (3,689)      (3,689)     (2,398)     (0.07)    Repurchase of 6 ¼% Senior   —            (872)       (674)       (0.02)    Notes^(3)    Total special items         $ (4,722)    $ (5,594)   $ (3,743)   (0.10)                                Three Months Ended                                June 30, 2013                                                                     Adjusted                                 Adjusted                             Diluted                                             Adjusted    Adjusted                                Operating                            Earnings                                             EBITDAR     NetIncome                                Income                               Per                                                                      Share                                (In thousands, except per share amounts)    Cancellation of potential   $ —          $ —         $ (8,276)   $ (0.23)    financing^(4)    Total special items         $ —          $ —         $ (8,276)   (0.23)       Relates to a charges associated with the restructuring of our North ^(1) America business unit and planned closure of our Alaska operations which      related primarily to employee severance and retention costs. ^(2) Relates to CEO succession cost. ^(3) Relates to premium and fees associated with the repurchase of some of our      6 ¼% Senior Notes due 2022. ^(4) Relates to the cancellation of potential financing.
