Bristow Group sees FY18 results 'largely consistent' with May guidance
"While our first quarter financial performance continues to reflect the difficult environment in the offshore oil and gas industry, I am incredibly proud that our teams delivered safe operations and a more competitive and cost efficient service for our clients as a result of aggressive actions taken during the quarter," said Jonathan Baliff, President and CEO of Bristow Group. "Even with the better-than-expected first quarter performance, we expect the full fiscal 2018 operating results to be largely consistent with our May 2017 guidance as the current downturn persists with low offshore oil and gas activity levels. However, since the beginning of this fiscal year, we have taken several actions designed to significantly strengthen our liquidity. We sold a SAR S-92 for approximately $40 million, announced an agreement for a secured financing of $230 million, and therefore anticipate an improved fiscal 2018 liquidity outlook."
