As previously disclosed by Bristow Group Inc. (the “Company”), the failure to file the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 would, if the Form 10-Q is not filed prior to the expiration of applicable grace periods, result in an event of default under certain of the Company’s loan agreements, unless waived or extended. As of March 15, 2019, the relevant parties to all such agreements which provided for the current or future right to accelerate such indebtedness on or prior to April 15, 2019 had waived any breach arising under such agreements to extend the grace period for filing the Form 10-Q until April 15, 2019, in each case subject to certain conditions. The Company continues to work towards filing its Form 10-Q as soon as possible.
