1 2018 financial results reflect the adoption of ASC 606, Contracts with Customers, effective January 1, 2018. 2017 financial results have not been adjusted for such impacts.
2 Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Net Income Per Share (“Adjusted EPS”) and Adjusted EBITDA reflect an adjustment to Operating Income computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) to add back approximately $14.0 million of transaction and integration planning costs associated with the proposed combination with Chicago Bridge & Iron Company N.V. (“CB&I”), as well as restructuring charges associated with our Fit 2 Grow (“F2G”) initiative, incurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2018.
The reconciliations of Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA to the respective most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the appendix entitled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to GAAP Financial Measures.”
3 The calculations of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS reflect the tax effects of Non-GAAP adjustments during the period. In jurisdictions in which we currently do not pay taxes, no tax impact is applied to Non-GAAP adjusting items.

“I am extremely pleased with the performance our team delivered this quarter and the strong traction we are getting in the market,” said David Dickson, President and Chief Executive Officer of McDermott. “We achieved a significant milestone with over 84 million man-hours Lost-Time Incident (“LTI”) free as of March 31, 2018, demonstrating our continual commitment to safety. Our overall revenue opportunity pipeline remains strong at $25 billion, with our disciplined bidding activity during the quarter resulting in a substantial increase to bids and change orders outstanding. Further, our legacy loss making projects are now substantially complete. As market conditions improve for our customers, opportunities for the combined organization continue to increase as our customers remain enthusiastic about the vertically integrated solution a combined McDermott and CB&I will offer. We recently completed a key milestone for the financing of the combination with the closing of the notes offering and our integration teams have identified potential incremental savings of $100 million in addition to the expected $250 million in annualized cost synergies previously announced. We are excited to complete our transformational combination with CB&I so that we can begin integrating our two companies and deliver on the significant value-creating benefits of the transaction.”

First Quarter 2018 Operating Results

First quarter 2018 earnings attributable to McDermott stockholders, computed in accordance with GAAP, were $35.2 million, or $0.12 per fully diluted share, compared to $21.9 million, or $0.08 per fully diluted share, for the prior-year first quarter. We generated first quarter 2018 adjusted net income of $49.2 million, or $0.17 per adjusted fully diluted share, excluding transaction, integration planning and restructuring costs of $14.0 million. For the prior-year first quarter, there were no adjustments from GAAP.

We reported first quarter 2018 revenues of $607.8 million, an increase of $88.4 million, compared to revenues of $519.4 million for the prior-year first quarter. The key projects driving revenues for the first quarter of 2018 were the Saudi Aramco LTA II Lump Sum, Saudi Aramco Safaniya Phase 5, Inpex Ichthys and Pemex Abkatun-A2 projects. The increase from the prior-year first quarter was primarily due to the settlement of a significant change order in Asia and an increase in activity in the Middle East.

Our operating income and operating margin for the first quarter of 2018 were $68.4 million and 11.3%, compared to $56.0 million and 10.8% for the first quarter of 2017. Our adjusted operating income and adjusted operating margin for the first quarter of 2018 were $82.4 million and 13.6%, excluding the transaction, integration planning and restructuring costs mentioned above. For the prior-year first quarter, there were no adjustments from GAAP. Operating income for the first quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by the settlement of a significant change order in Asia. A significant amount of the cost and a portion of the revenues associated with the change order were recognized in prior quarters.

Cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2018 was $37.1 million, a decrease compared to the $48.5 million of cash provided in the first quarter of 2017. The decrease was primarily driven by working capital build on projects with national oil companies, partially offset by the impact of our strong operating results.

1 There is no assurance that bids outstanding will be awarded to McDermott or that outstanding change orders ultimately will be approved and paid by the applicable customers in the full amounts requested or at all.
2 Target projects are those that McDermott has identified as anticipated to be awarded by customers or prospective customers in the next five quarters through competitive bidding processes and capable of being performed by McDermott. There is no assurance that target projects will be awarded to McDermott.

As of March 31, 2018, McDermott’s backlog was $3.4 billion, compared to $3.9 billion at December 31, 2017. Order intake in the first quarter of 2018 totaled $321.2 million, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 0.5x.

At March 31, 2018, there were bids and change orders outstanding and identified target projects of approximately $7.5 billion and $14.1 billion, respectively, in the revenue opportunity pipeline that we expect will be awarded in the market through June 30, 2019. In total, the revenue opportunity pipeline, including our backlog, was $25.0 billion as of March 31, 2018, an increase of approximately $0.5 billion from $24.5 billion as of December 31, 2017 and $5.4 billion from $19.6 billion as of March 31, 2017. Our bids and change orders outstanding increased substantially by $3.1 billion, or 70%, from December 31, 2017, to $7.5 billion as of March 31, 2018, with growth primarily in Asia and the Middle East. We believe our increased bidding activity signals increased opportunities in the market.

1 Corporate and Other includes corporate expenses, certain centrally managed initiatives (such as restructuring charges), impairments, year-end mark-to-market (“MTM”) pension actuarial gains and losses, costs not attributable to a particular reportable segment and unallocated direct operating expenses associated with the underutilization of vessels, fabrication facilities and engineering resources.
2 The calculation of adjusted operating income and margin are shown in the appendix entitled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP to GAAP Financial Measures.” All non-GAAP adjustments are attributable to the Corporate and Other reporting unit.

In the Americas, Europe and Africa (“AEA”) Area, the Pemex Abkatun-A2 project started the first of two offshore campaigns, successfully installing the eight leg jacket, before moving onto the tripods and bridges installation, which is ongoing. All mechanical equipment for the main topside has now arrived on site. Piping spool fabrication and installation, as well as electrical and instrumentation cable pulling were significantly ramped up during the period, with all these activities on schedule to be completed during the second quarter. Jacking-up of the main topside to allow loadout onto the McDermott I-650 float over barge has commenced and is expected to be finished in May 2018. The final installation campaign will be during the summer, allowing offshore hookup and commissioning to take place. On the BP Angelin project, the final mechanical completion of the deck along with onshore commissioning is on schedule to be completed early in Q2 2018 at the Altamira yard. Planned loadout remains in Q2 2018 and the offshore installation campaign is expected to commence shortly thereafter in Trinidad. The QGEP Atlanta Project offshore work was successfully completed in March, and the NO 102 has already departed from Brazil. The Maersk Tyra Project continues on schedule, with early ramp up in line with expectations, including the construction readiness plan at the Batam yard. Both the Maersk and McDermott teams were fully mobilized into the Kuala Lumpur office during the period. The recently awarded front-end engineering and design contract for the BP Tortue/Ahmeyim Field Development is expected to commence the initial engineering phase in early Q2 2018. The agreement includes a mechanism to transition the contract to a lump-sum EPCI contract at a later date. The pre-engineering and long lead procurement for the BP Cassia C project was awarded and commenced in the first quarter of 2018, with implementation of our innovative Digital Twin technology platform expected to occur later in the project.

In the Middle East (“MEA”) Area, McDermott experienced high levels of both fabrication activity and utilization of marine assets, as the majority of the Saudi Aramco Long Term Agreement II (“LTA II”) platforms left the Jebel Ali yard to be installed. Offshore work in the Safaniya field relating to the LTA II project is now substantially complete. The preparation for the Header 9 offshore campaign is progressing well, and the work is scheduled to start early in Q2 2018. Engineering and procurement activities on the Safaniya Phase 5 project are nearing completion, with the first two platforms 100% complete. Those platforms will be loaded out onto the cargo barge in Q2 2018. The fabrication of the remaining structures is ongoing, and they will be ready for loadout in line with the agreed project schedule. All of the structures on the four Jackets and three Observation Platforms project have been installed and the completion activities will be concluded in Q2 2018. Our KJO Hout project is operationally complete, with ongoing close-out activities such as punch list items and final documentation. The Safaniya Phase 6 project is proceeding as per the project schedule, and the first steel plate was cut on March 12, 2018, with Saudi Aramco Senior Management in attendance. The Bul Hanine EPCI project for Qatar Petroleum is now fully under way in our KL office, with fabrication work in our Batam facility scheduled to commence in late Q2 2018. The recently awarded Saudi Aramco project for 13 Jackets is proceeding at a fast pace, with the first structural steel arriving in our Jebel Ali fabrication yard in Q2 2018. Pipelay has commenced on the TOTAL PRP project in Qatar, with final handover scheduled in Q2 2018. During the quarter, the MEA Area continued building on its exceptional QHSES performance, achieving more than 82 million man hours Lost Time Incident (“LTI”) free.

In the Asia (“ASA”) Area, the ONGC Vashishta project achieved first gas in late March. McDermott scope was completed with the installation of the subsea jumper spools fabricated by our consortium partner Larson and Toubro and completion of offshore commissioning support. The LV 108 successfully completed the Ichthys Separable Portion 3 scope, which included fabrication and installation subsea jumpers. The Ichthys project was essentially complete but for the remaining minor scope of fabrication and installation of 4-6 subsea Jumpers, Steel Tube and Electrical Flying Leads, which is currently scheduled for execution in Q1 2019. The Greater Western Flank 2 project completed double joint welding of heavy and light wall pipe at our purpose-built facility within our Batam fabrication yard in early January 2018. The offshore campaign commenced in February with the LV 108 conducting a pre-lay survey and early works in advance of the DLV 2000 arriving infield late March. The DLV 2000 offshore pipelay scope is now underway and progressing to plan. The offshore scope is expected to be complete during late Q2 2018. The Reliance KGD6 Subsea Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Pre-commissioning project set up is complete, and the pre-engineering site survey was completed in February. Field layout, structures design and installation strategy have been progressing in line with the project plan. The first of two offshore campaigns is expected to commence in Q4 2018. The Gorgon Phase 2 Subsea manifolds fabrication project, awarded in December 2017 by Baker Hughes, a GE Company (BHGE), is progressing in line with the project plan. That project is an expansion of the Gorgon Foundation project subsea gas gathering system, supplying the three train LNG plant on Barrow Island off Northwest Australia. This award demonstrated our continued success in fabrication of subsea structures and our ongoing relationships with BHGE, Chevron and the Gorgon project. The Exxon West Barracouta subsea tie-back design scope was completed in March 2018, and the bidding for the EPCI package is now underway. Also during the first quarter of 2018, the ASA Area was given a Limited Notice to Proceed by PTSC Offshore Services Joint Stock Company for the provision of early preparation works for the transport and installation of the Sau Vang Central Processing Platform, the Dai Nguyet Wellhead platform and associated pipelines offshore Vietnam. The contract is expected to be finalized in the second quarter of 2018, with the offshore installation scope planned for mid-2019.

In the first quarter of 2018, Corporate and Other costs were mainly attributable to selling, general and administrative expenses of $19.4 million and unallocated direct operating expenses of $42.0 million. Additionally, we incurred transaction-related costs of $2.7 million and integration planning costs of $8.7 million associated with the proposed combination with CB&I, as well as restructuring costs of $2.6 million associated with our F2G initiative. Unallocated direct operating expenses were primarily driven by lower than standard utilization of our Batam fabrication yard and certain marine vessels.

1 McDermott’s forecasted net income attributable to McDermott does not include the 2018 year-end pension actuarial gain or loss, because the company has no basis to estimate pension actuarial gain or loss amounts for the forecast period and cannot estimate such amount without unreasonable effort.
2 Net Interest Expense is gross interest expense less capitalized interest and interest income.
3 Ending Gross Debt excludes debt issuance costs and capital lease obligations.
4 The calculations of EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, which are Non-GAAP measures, are shown in the appendix entitled “Reconciliation of Forecast Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Forecast GAAP Financial Measures.”
5 Corporate and Other represents the operating income (loss) from corporate and non-operating activities, including corporate expenses, certain centrally managed initiatives (such as restructuring charges), impairments, year-end mark-to-market (“MTM”) pension actuarial gains and losses, costs not attributable to a particular reporting segment, and unallocated direct operating expenses associated with the underutilization of vessels, fabrication facilities and engineering resources.

Our full year 2018 guidance was initially issued on January 24, 2018, and reaffirmed on February 21, 2018 and April 12, 2018. We are reaffirming it again at this time, with an adjustment to our anticipated costs forecast under Corporate and Other, which have been increased due to anticipated under-recoveries on our marine fleet driven by changes in project schedules. Our 2018 guidance does not include any transaction, integration planning or financing related costs associated with the proposed combination with CB&I.

During the fourth quarter of 2017 we initiated F2G, a value improvement program to further reduce our costs and sustain profitability and growth. F2G is expected to generate in excess of $50 million of cash savings before restructuring charges. During the first quarter of 2018, our implemented F2G initiatives resulted in approximately $15 million in savings.

Other Financial Information

Weighted average common shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis were approximately 285.1 million and 282.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Additional weighted average shares of 38 million related to the Tangible Equity Units (“TEUs”), which are no longer outstanding, as well as other potentially dilutive shares, were included for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Non-GAAP Measures

This communication includes several “non-GAAP” financial measures as defined under Regulation G of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. We report our financial results in accordance with GAAP, but believe that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors regarding the underlying business trends and performance of our ongoing operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of those operations.

Non-GAAP measures include adjusted diluted net income per share, adjusted net income, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin and adjusted EBITDA, in each case excluding the impacts of certain identified items. The excluded items represent items that our management does not consider to be representative of our normal operations. We believe that adjusted diluted net income per share, adjusted net income, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin and adjusted EBITDA are useful measures for investors to review, because they provide a consistent measure of the underlying financial results of our ongoing business and, in our management’s view, allow for a supplemental comparison against historical results and expectations for future performance. Furthermore, our management uses each of these measures as measures of the performance of our operations for budgeting and forecasting, as well as employee incentive compensation. However, Non-GAAP measures should not be considered as substitutes for operating income, net income or other data prepared and reported in accordance with GAAP and should be viewed in addition to our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The forecast non-GAAP measures we have presented in this communication include forecast free cash flow and EBITDA. We believe these forward-looking financial measures are within reasonable measure. We define “free cash flow” as cash flows from operations less capital expenditures. We believe investors consider free cash flow as an important measure, because it generally represents funds available to pursue opportunities that may enhance stockholder value, such as making acquisitions or other investments. Our management uses free cash flow for that reason. We define EBITDA as net income plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net, and provision for income taxes. We have included EBITDA disclosures in this communication because EBITDA is widely used by investors for valuation and comparing our financial performance with the performance of other companies in our industry. Our management also uses EBITDA to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations. EBITDA does not give effect to the cash that we must use to service our debt or pay our income taxes, and thus does reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures, dividends or various other purposes. Our presentations of free cash flow and EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures in other companies’ reports. You should not consider free cash flow and EBITDA in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net income or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures and forecast non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the tables set forth at the end of this communication.

Forward-Looking Statements

In accordance with the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, McDermott cautions that statements in this communication which are forward-looking, and provide other than historical information, involve risks, contingencies and uncertainties that may impact actual results of operations of McDermott, including after the proposed business combination with CB&I. These forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements about full-year 2018 guidance, project milestones, increased opportunities in the market, backlog, bids and change orders outstanding, target projects and revenue opportunity pipeline, to the extent these may be viewed as indicators of future revenues or profitability, the expected impacts of the F2G program and progress toward completing the proposed combination with CB&I and the anticipated benefits of that transaction. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in those forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that those expectations will prove to have been correct. Those statements are made by using various underlying assumptions and are subject to numerous risks, contingencies and uncertainties, including, among others: the ability of McDermott and CB&I to obtain the shareholder approvals necessary to complete the proposed combination on the anticipated timeline or at all; the risk that a condition to the closing of the proposed combination may not be satisfied, or that the proposed combination may fail to close, including as the result of any inability to obtain the financing for the combination; the outcome of any legal proceedings, regulatory proceedings or enforcement matters that may be instituted relating to the proposed combination; the costs incurred to consummate the proposed combination; the possibility that the expected synergies from the proposed combination will not be realized, or will not be realized within the expected time period; difficulties related to the integration of the two companies; the credit ratings of the combined businesses following the proposed combination; disruption from the proposed combination making it more difficult to maintain relationships with customers, employees, regulators or suppliers; the diversion of management time and attention on the proposed combination; adverse changes in the markets in which McDermott and CB&I operate or credit markets; the inability of McDermott or CB&I to execute on contracts in backlog successfully; changes in project design or schedules; the availability of qualified personnel; changes in the terms, scope or timing of contracts; contract cancellations; change orders and other modifications and actions by customers and other business counterparties of McDermott and CB&I; changes in industry norms; and adverse outcomes in legal or other dispute resolution proceedings. If one or more of these risks materialize, or if underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those expected. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. For a more complete discussion of these and other risk factors, please see each of McDermott's and CB&I's annual and quarterly filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including their respective annual reports on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.

1 We recognized $14.0 million in transaction and integration planning costs associated with the proposed combination with CB&I, as well as restructuring costs associated with our F2G initiative, in the first quarter of 2018.
2 Represents tax effects of Non-GAAP adjustments. The Non-GAAP adjusting items are attributable to tax jurisdictions in which we currently do not pay taxes and, therefore, no tax impact is applied to those items.
3 Includes the Non-GAAP adjustments described in footnote 1 above.
4 We define EBITDA as net income plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net, and provision for income taxes. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA less the adjustments detailed in the immediately preceding pages. We have included EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA disclosures in this supplemental deck because EBITDA is widely used by investors for valuation and comparing our financial performance with the performance of other companies in our industry and because Adjusted EBITDA provides a consistent measure of EBITDA relating to our underlying business. Our management also uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not give effect to the cash that we must use to service our debt or pay our income taxes, and thus do not reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures, dividends or various other purposes. In addition, our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures in other companies’ reports. You should not consider EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net income or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
