Bristow Group Inc. (NYSE:BRS) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial ConditionItem 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On February 8, 2018, Bristow Group Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release that summarized its financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended December31, 2017 (the “Financial Results”). This press release was issued in anticipation of a conference call and Q&A session starting at 10:00 a.m. ET (9:00 a.m. CT) on Friday, February 9, 2018, to review the Financial Results. A copy of the press release is furnished with this report as Exhibit99.1, and is incorporated herein by reference.
The press release includes certain “non-GAAP financial measures” under Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted benefit (provision) for income taxes, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share (collectively, the “Non-GAAP measures”). Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by taking our net income (loss) and adjusting for interest expense, depreciation and amortization, benefit (provision) for income taxes, gain (loss) on disposal of assets and special items, if any. Additionally, our net income (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share in this release have been presented in certain instances excluding gain (loss) on disposal of assets and special items detailed in the press release; these items are presented as adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share. Management believes that the Non-GAAP measures provide relevant and useful information, which is widely used by analysts, investors and competitors in our industry as well as by our management in assessing both consolidated and business unit performance. Adjusted EBITDA provides us with an understanding of one aspect of earnings before the impact of investing and financing transactions and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of discretionary cash available to us for investing in the growth of our business. Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share present our consolidated results excluding asset dispositions and special items that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of our helicopter services operations. Adjusted benefit (provision) for income taxes excludes the tax impact of these items. We believe that these measures are useful supplemental measures because net income (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share include asset disposition effects and special items, and inclusion of these items does not reflect the predictive ongoing operational earnings of our business. The Non-GAAP measures are not calculated or presented in accordance with GAAP and other companies in our industry may calculate these measures differently than we do. As a result, these financial measures have limitations as analytical and comparative tools and you should not consider these items in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. In calculating these financial measures, we make certain adjustments that are based on assumptions and estimates that may prove to be inaccurate. In addition, in evaluating these financial measures, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses similar to those eliminated in this presentation. Our presentation of the Non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or special items. Such non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as an alternative to our GAAP financial statements, but should be read as a supplement to, and in conjunction with, our GAAP financial statements.
