Pacific Drilling Reportedly Becoming A Takeover Target

Pacific Drilling S.A. (NYSE:PACD) is gaining interest as a takeover target due to its depressed market value owing to year-long oil price rout. Pacific Drilling has attracted interest from Ensco plc (NYSE:ESV), Transocean Ltd. (NYSE:RIG) and SeaDrill Limited (NYSE:SDRL) in the last 12 to 18 months, according to a person familiar with the matter. One of those approaches was made in 2015, the person said, asking not to be identified as the information is private. Pacific Drilling isn’t actively exploring a sale and the approaches so far have been rebuffed, according to the person. Amy Roddy, a representative for Pacific Drilling, said the company doesn’t comment on speculation of any transaction. Representatives for Ensco and Transocean didn’t respond to requests for comment, nor did a London-based representative for Seadrill, reported Bloomberg.

Pacific Drilling S.A. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Reiterates Financial Outlook for Fiscal 2015

Pacific Drilling S.A. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. The company reported net income for first-quarter 2015 of $51.7 million or $0.24 per diluted share, compared to net income of $68.0 million or $0.32 per diluted share for fourth-quarter 2014. Net income for first-quarter 2014 was $22.2 million or $0.10 per diluted share. During first-quarter 2015, cash flow from operations was $147.9 million compared to $122.8 million a year ago. During first-quarter 2015, capital expenditures were $57.5 million, of which $34.1 million related to new build rig construction, compared to $88.8 million a year ago. Revenue was $283.392 million compared to $225.591 million a year ago. Operating income was $92.285 million compared to $55.938 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $53.525 million compared to $28.738 million a year ago. EBITDA was $147.306 million compared to $100.923 million a year ago. Contract drilling revenue for the first quarter decreased over the prior quarter by $36.3 million to $283.4 million, primarily as a result of the partial quarter contribution from Pacific Mistral that positively offset by a full quarter of operations from Pacific Sharav beyond its initial shakedown period. Rig crews continue to deliver yet another quarter of extraordinarily high revenue efficiency. The company also reiterated its outlook for fiscal 2015 revenue efficiency, expecting an income tax expense in a range of 3.5% to 4% of total contract drilling revenue. The company estimated the remaining capital expenditures required to complete construction of new build drillship and develop spare equipment will be approximately $459.2 million, excluding capitalized interest. The company expects to cover these capital expenditures with a combination of existing cash balances, future operating cash flows, and undrawn capacity under existing credit facilities.
