Operating income of Seacor’s Offshore Marine Services was $22.9 million on operating revenues of $121.1 million compared with operating income of $16.1 million on operating revenues of $109.8 million in the preceding quarter. First quarter results included $1.8 million in gains on asset dispositions compared with $1.4 million in gains in the preceding quarter.

First quarter results also included the contribution of the Company’s fleet of wind farm utility vessels acquired in December 2011. During the first quarter, these vessels contributed operating revenues of $6.0 million with an average day rate of $2,431 per day and a utilization rate of 86.0%.

In the first quarter, excluding the contribution of wind farm utility vessels, the total number of days available for charter decreased by 259 days, or 2.5%; utilization increased from 79.7% to 80.6%; and average day rates increased by 8.1% from $12,187 per day to $13,174 per day.

In the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, operating income was $8.4 million higher in the first quarter primarily due to an increase in revenues from rig moving activity. Utilization was 73.1% compared with 70.3% in the preceding quarter and average day rates increased from $12,523 per day to $14,964 per day. As of March 31, 2012, the Company had four vessels cold-stacked in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, the same as of December 31, 2011.

In international regions, excluding the wind farm utility vessels, operating income was $1.8 million lower in the first quarter. Time charter revenues were $0.6 million lower primarily due to fewer days available and a decrease in utilization, which was 85.6% compared with 86.2% in the preceding quarter. Average day rates increased from $11,999 per day to $12,149 per day. Other revenues were $1.8 million lower primarily due a decrease in mobilization and other marine services. Operating expenses were $1.2 million higher primarily due to increased drydocking activity.

Administrative and general expenses were $1.8 million lower in the first quarter primarily due to lower wage and benefit costs and a reduction in legal expenses.

Equity in earnings increased by $2.3 million in the first quarter primarily due to the commencement of a long-term charter for a vessel in one of Offshore Marine Services’ joint ventures in November 2011.
