Fourth Quarter Results

Segment Results

Well Intervention

Well Intervention revenues in the fourth quarter of 2019 decreased by $28.4 million, or 17%, from the previous quarter. The decrease in revenues was due to lower rates in the Gulf of Mexico, the seasonal slowdown in the North Sea and lower 15K IRS rental utilization in the fourth quarter compared to the third quarter. Our Well Intervention revenues in the fourth quarter of 2019 also included approximately $3.9 million of contractual adjustments related to increases in withholding taxes in Brazil, of which $2.1 million related to 2018. Overall Well Intervention vessel utilization decreased to 92% in the fourth quarter from 97% in the third quarter. Well Intervention income from operations decreased $22.1 million, or 59%, in the fourth quarter of 2019 from the previous quarter primarily due to lower segment revenues.

Well Intervention revenues increased $27.0 million, or 24%, in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in revenues was primarily driven by higher utilization and integrated services in the Gulf of Mexico and the contractual adjustments related to increases in withholding taxes in Brazil. The increase was partially offset by seasonally lower rates in the North Sea in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Overall, Well Intervention vessel utilization increased to 92% in the fourth quarter of 2019 from 79% in the fourth quarter of 2018. Income from operations increased $10.7 million, or 220%, in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the fourth quarter of 2018, primarily related to higher segment revenues.

Robotics

Robotics revenues in the fourth quarter of 2019 decreased by $16.6 million, or 32%, from the previous quarter. The decrease was driven by seasonally lower chartered vessel utilization and lower ROV, trencher and ROVDrill utilization, which included fewer trenching vessel days compared to the previous quarter. Chartered vessel utilization decreased to 73% in the fourth quarter of 2019, which included 55 spot vessel days, from 96% in the third quarter of 2019, which included 28 spot vessel days. Available chartered vessel days decreased by 43 days during the fourth quarter with the termination of the Grand Canyon charter in November 2019. ROV, trencher and ROVDrill utilization declined to 41% in the fourth quarter of 2019 from 44% in the previous quarter, and vessel trenching days in the fourth quarter of 2019 declined to 64 days compared to 149 days in the previous quarter. Robotics income from operations declined $9.5 million compared to the third quarter due to lower revenues, offset in part by lower costs, which included the termination of the Grand Canyon charter in November and a full quarter of cost reductions from the expiration of the hedge of the Grand Canyon II charter payments in July 2019.

Robotics revenues decreased $3.1 million, or 8%, in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. The decrease in revenues year over year was primarily due to a decrease in trenching activity and chartered vessel utilization and fewer spot vessel days, offset in part by higher rates on the Grand Canyon II and increased ROV, trencher and ROVDrill utilization in the fourth quarter of 2019. Robotics had 64 vessel trenching days in the fourth quarter of 2019, down from 151 vessel trenching days in the fourth quarter of 2018. Chartered vessel utilization decreased to 73%, which included 55 spot vessel days, in the fourth quarter of 2019 from 78%, which included 84 spot vessel days, in the fourth quarter of 2018. ROV, trencher and ROVDrill utilization was 41% in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 36% in the fourth quarter of 2018. Income from operations in the fourth quarter of 2019 increased $0.6 million from the fourth quarter of 2018 due to lower costs related to the termination of the Grand Canyon charter in November 2019, the expiration of the hedge of the Grand Canyon II charter payments in July 2019, offset in part by lower segment revenues and higher ROV costs due to increased ROV utilization.

Production Facilities

Production Facilities revenues increased $2.8 million, or 20%, quarter over quarter due to higher revenues from the Helix Fast Response System and higher production revenues. The fourth quarter of 2019 benefitted from approximately $2.0 million of residual revenue from our previous Helix Fast Response System contract that expired in the first quarter of 2019 that was linked to 2019 utilization of our Gulf of Mexico Well Intervention vessels by HWCG members. Revenues increased $0.7 million year over year due to production revenues realized in the fourth quarter of 2019, offset in part by reduced revenue from the Helix Fast Response System. Production Facilities income from operations decreased $1.1 million year over year due to lower revenue from the Helix Fast Response System in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Selling, General and Administrative and Other

Selling, General and Administrative

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $20.9 million, or 12.3% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $16.1 million, or 7.6% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2019. The increase in expenses was primarily related to an increase in employee compensation costs in the fourth quarter.

Other Income and Expenses

Other income (expense), net improved $5.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. The change was primarily due to net foreign currency gains related to a stronger British pound in the fourth quarter, compared to net foreign currency losses in the prior quarter.

Cash Flows

Operating cash flows were $79.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $57.3 million in the third quarter of 2019 and $45.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in operating cash flows quarter over quarter was due to positive working capital changes offset in part by lower earnings during the fourth quarter of 2019. The increase in fourth quarter operating cash flows year over year was due to positive working capital changes as well as increased earnings in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.

Capital expenditures totaled $95.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $18.2 million in the third quarter of 2019 and $81.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Capital expenditures in the fourth quarter of 2019 and 2018 each included a $69.2 million installment payment to the shipyard and other capital spending for the Q7000, which was delivered to Helix during the fourth quarter of 2019.

Free cash flow was $(15.4) million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $39.2 million in the third quarter of 2019 and $(35.7) million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decrease quarter over quarter was due to higher capital expenditures related to the Q7000, offset in part by higher operating cash flows. The improvement in fourth quarter free cash flow year over year was primarily due to higher operating cash flows, offset in part by higher capital expenditures related to the completion of the Q7000. (Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure. See reconciliation below.)

Full Year Results

Segment Results

Well Intervention

Well Intervention revenues increased by $32.7 million, or 6%, in 2019 compared to 2018. The increase was primarily driven by higher utilization and increased integrated services in the Gulf of Mexico and higher utilization in Brazil. Our Well Intervention revenues in 2019 also included approximately $3.9 million of contractual adjustments related to increases in withholding taxes in Brazil, of which $2.1 million related to 2018. These increases were offset in part by lower rates and a weaker British pound in the North Sea and lower IRS rentals in 2019 compared to 2018. Overall Well Intervention vessel utilization increased to 89% in 2019 from 83% in 2018.

Robotics

Robotics revenues increased by $12.7 million, or 8%, in 2019 compared to 2018. The increase was due to improvements in chartered vessel utilization, which increased to 87% in 2019 compared to 76% in 2018, and in ROV, trencher and ROVDrill utilization, which increased to 41% in 2019 compared to 37% in 2018. These improvements were offset marginally by a reduction in vessel trenching days, which decreased to 484 days in 2019 from 560 days in 2018. Robotics generated $7.3 million in operating income in 2019 compared to an operating loss of $14.1 million in 2018. The improvement in operating income was due to higher revenues as well as cost reductions relating to our vessels, including the termination of the Grand Canyon charter in November 2019 and the expiration of the hedge of the Grand Canyon II charter payments in July 2019.

Production Facilities

Production Facilities revenues decreased $3.2 million, or 5%, in 2019 compared to 2018. The decrease was due to reduced revenues related to the Helix Fast Response System, offset in part by production revenues in 2019. Operating income decreased $10.1 million from the prior year due to decreases in revenues related to the Helix Fast Response System in 2019.

Selling, General and Administrative and Other

Selling, General and Administrative

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $69.8 million, or 9.3% of revenue, in 2019 compared to $70.3 million, or 9.5% of revenue, in 2018. The decrease was primarily related to a net decrease in employee compensation costs in 2019.

Other Income and Expenses

Other income (expense), net improved $7.5 million in 2019 compared to 2018. The change was primarily due to our recognition of net foreign currency gains in 2019 compared to foreign currency losses in 2018.

Cash Flows

Helix generated operating cash flows of $169.7 million in 2019 compared to $196.7 million in 2018. The decrease in operating cash flows in 2019, despite higher net income, was due to negative working capital changes and higher regulatory certification costs of our vessels and systems, which are included in operating cash flows, in 2019 compared to 2018. Capital expenditures totaled $140.9 million in 2019 compared to $137.1 million in 2018.

Free cash flow was $31.4 million in 2019 compared to $59.7 million in 2018 due primarily to lower operating cash flow. (Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure. See reconciliation below.)

Financial Condition and Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents were $208.4 million at December 31, 2019 and excluded $54.1 million of restricted cash pledged as collateral on a short-term project-related letter of credit. Available capacity under our revolving credit facility was $171.1 million at December 31, 2019. Consolidated long-term debt decreased to $405.9 million at December 31, 2019 from $413.4 million at September 30, 2019. Consolidated net debt at December 31, 2019 was $143.3 million. Net debt to book capitalization at December 31, 2019 was 8%. The restricted cash of $54.1 million is included in our net debt calculation as the restrictions are of a short-term project-related nature. (Net debt and net debt to book capitalization are non-GAAP measures. See reconciliations below.)

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management evaluates performance and financial condition using certain non-GAAP measures, primarily EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, net debt, net debt to book capitalization and free cash flow. We define EBITDA as earnings before income taxes, net interest expense, gain or loss on extinguishment of long-term debt, net other income or expense, and depreciation and amortization expense. Non-cash gains and losses on equity investments are also added back if applicable. To arrive at our measure of Adjusted EBITDA, we exclude gains and losses on disposition of assets, if any. In addition, we include realized losses from foreign currency exchange contracts not designated as hedging instruments and other than temporary loss on note receivable, which are excluded from EBITDA as a component of net other income or expense. Net debt is calculated as total long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents. Net debt to book capitalization is calculated by dividing net debt by the sum of net debt and shareholders’ equity. We define free cash flow as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures, net of proceeds from sale of assets.

We use EBITDA and free cash flow to monitor and facilitate internal evaluation of the performance of our business operations, to facilitate external comparison of our business results to those of others in our industry, to analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future investments and acquisitions, to plan and evaluate operating budgets, and in certain cases, to report our results to the holders of our debt as required by our debt covenants. We believe that our measures of EBITDA and free cash flow provide useful information to the public regarding our operating performance and ability to service debt and fund capital expenditures and may help our investors understand and compare our results to other companies that have different financing, capital and tax structures. Other companies may calculate their measures of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow differently from the way we do, which may limit their usefulness as comparative measures. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, but instead are supplemental to, income from operations, net income, cash flows from operating activities, or other income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Users of this financial information should consider the types of events and transactions that are excluded from these measures.

We define EBITDA as earnings before income taxes, net interest expense, gain or loss on extinguishment of long-term debt, net other income or expense, and depreciation and amortization expense. Non-cash gains and losses on equity investments are also added back if applicable. To arrive at our measure of Adjusted EBITDA, we exclude the gains and losses on disposition of assets, if any. In addition, we include realized losses from foreign currency exchange contracts not designated as hedging instruments and other than temporary loss on note receivable which are excluded from EBITDA as a component of net other income or expense. We define free cash flow as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures, net of proceeds from sale of assets.  We use EBITDA and free cash flow to monitor and facilitate internal evaluation of the performance of our business operations, to facilitate external comparison of our business results to those of others in our industry, to analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future investments and acquisitions, to plan and evaluate operating budgets, and in certain cases, to report our results to the holders of our debt as required by our debt covenants. We believe that our measures of EBITDA and free cash flow provide useful information to the public regarding our operating performance and ability to service debt and fund capital expenditures and may help our investors understand and compare our results to other companies that have different financing, capital and tax structures. Other companies may calculate their measures of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow differently from the way we do, which may limit their usefulness as comparative measures. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, but instead are supplemental to, income from operations, net income, cash flows from operating activities, or other income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Users of this financial information should consider the types of events and transactions that are excluded from these measures.
