Year over year and sequentially, quarterly earnings per share (EPS) increased as all business segments achieved higher operating income, led by Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV), Subsea Projects, and Asset Integrity. 

M. Kevin McEvoy, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our EPS was up 43% over the first quarter of this year, and up 29% compared to the second quarter of 2011.  As expected, operating income margin improved sequentially in each of our operating segments.  We achieved record quarterly ROV and Asset Integrity operating income. 

"Our outlook for the remainder of this year remains very positive.  Given this outlook and our year-to-date performance, we are narrowing our 2012 EPS guidance range to $2.55 to $2.65 from $2.45 to $2.65, up slightly at the midpoint.  Compared to the first half, we anticipate achieving higher operating income during the second half of 2012, principally due to our ROV and Subsea Products businesses.  We continue to forecast operating income growth for all of our segments in 2012 relative to 2011. 

"Compared to the first quarter, ROV operating income increased on the strength of higher demand for both drilling and vessel-based support services, notably in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.  During the quarter we put 13 new ROVs into service and retired 3.  At the end of June we had 280 vehicles in our fleet, compared to 262 one year ago.  During the second half of this year we expect to place into service 7 to 12 more new systems.  We now anticipate adding a total of 25 to 30 new systems to our ROV fleet and retiring 5 in 2012.

"Subsea Products operating income rose on the strength of increased revenue and profitability from tooling.  Subsea Products backlog at quarter-end was $621 million, up from our March backlog of $402 million and $405 million one year ago.  The substantial increase in backlog was attributable to two large umbilical contracts we announced during the quarter.

 "Subsea Projects operating income increased due to an escalation of work for BP off Angola.  Asset Integrity operating income was higher on increased service sales in all of the major geographic areas we serve, markedly in Norway due to the acquisition we made in late 2011.

"Other expense, net, of $3.2 million for the quarter and $4.6 million year-to-date consisted primarily of foreign currency exchange losses, principally related to our Brazilian operations, as the U.S. dollar strengthened against the Brazilian real. 

"For the third quarter of 2012, we expect a sequential improvement in operating income, principally from our ROV and Subsea Products business segments.  We are projecting EPS of $0.75 to $0.80.

"Our liquidity and projected cash flow provide us with ample resources to invest in Oceaneering's growth.  During the quarter we generated EBITDA of $149 million, $265 million year to date, and for 2012 we anticipate generating at least $565 million.  At the end of the quarter our balance sheet remained conservatively capitalized with $86 million of cash, $125 million of debt, and $1.6 billion of equity.

"During the quarter we purchased 400,000 shares of our common stock at a cost of about $19.4 million.  And, as announced in April, we increased our regular quarterly cash dividend to $0.18 from $0.15 per share.  These actions underscore our continued confidence in Oceaneering's financial strength and future business prospects. 

"Looking beyond 2012, our belief that the oil and gas industry will continue to invest in deepwater projects remains unchanged.  Deepwater remains one of the best frontiers for adding large hydrocarbon reserves with high production flow rates at relatively low finding and development costs.  With our existing assets, we are well positioned to supply a wide range of the services and products required to support safe deepwater efforts of our customers."

Statements in this press release that express a belief, expectation, or intention are forward looking.  The forward-looking statements in this press release include the statements concerning Oceaneering's:  positive outlook for the rest of 2012; 2012 EPS guidance range; anticipated operating income results during the second half of 2012; forecasted operating income growth for 2012 relative to 2011; expected additions and retirements of ROVs in service during the second half of this year; anticipated additions and retirements of ROVs to its fleet in 2012; expected third quarter 2012 sequential improvement in operating income, principally from ROVs and Subsea Products; projected third quarter EPS; expectation that its liquidity and projected cash flow will provide ample resources to invest in the company's growth; anticipated 2012 EBITDA; belief that the oil and gas industry will continue to invest in deepwater projects; and belief that deepwater remains one of the best frontiers for adding large hydrocarbon reserves with high production flow rates. 


These forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of   1995, and are based on current information and expectations of Oceaneering that involve a number of risks, uncertainties, and assumptions.  Among the factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements are risks and uncertainties related to:  industry conditions; prices of crude oil and natural gas; Oceaneering's ability to obtain, and the timing of, new projects; changes in customers' operational plans or schedules; contract cancellations or modifications; difficulties executing under contracts; and changes in competitive factors.  Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements prove incorrect, actual outcomes could vary materially from those indicated.  For a more complete discussion of these and other risk factors, please see Oceaneering's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  

We define EBITDA as net income plus provision for income taxes, interest income/expense, net, and depreciation and amortization.  EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.  We have included EBITDA disclosures in this press release because EBITDA is widely used by investors for valuation and comparing our financial performance with the performance of other companies in our industry.  Our presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies report.  Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to and not as an alternative for our reported operating results or cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance as determined in accordance with GAAP.  For a reconciliation of these EBITDA amounts to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the attached schedules.

Oceaneering is a global oilfield provider of engineered services and products, primarily to the offshore oil and gas industry, with a focus on deepwater applications.  Through the use of its applied technology expertise, Oceaneering also serves the defense and aerospace industries.
