HELIX ENERGY SOLUTIONS GROUP, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

Note 1 — Basis of Presentation and New Accounting Standards

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, “Helix”). Unless the context indicates otherwise, the terms “we,” “us” and “our” in this report refer collectively to Helix and its subsidiaries. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in U.S. dollars have been prepared in accordance with instructions for the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q required to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and do not include all information and footnotes normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and the related disclosures. Actual results may differ from our estimates. We have made all adjustments, which, unless otherwise disclosed, are of normal recurring nature, that we believe are necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations, statements of comprehensive income (loss), statements of shareholders’ equity and statements of cash flows, as applicable. The operating results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022. Our balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 included herein has been derived from the audited balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 included in our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K (our “2021 Form 10-K”). These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited annual consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2021 Form 10-K.

Certain reclassifications were made to previously reported amounts in the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto to make them consistent with the current presentation format.

We do not expect any recently issued accounting standards to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows when they become effective.

Note 2 — Company Overview

We are an international offshore energy services company that provides specialty services to the offshore energy industry, with a focus on well intervention and robotics operations. Our services are centered on a three-legged business model:

Production maximization our assets and methodologies are specifically designed to efficiently enhance and extend the lives of existing oil and gas reserves; we also offer an alternative to take over end-of-life reserves in preparation for their abandonment;
Decommissioning we have historical success as a full-field abandonment contractor and believe that regulatory push for plug and abandonment (“P&A”) and transition to renewable energy will facilitate the continued growth of abandonment backlog; and
Renewable energy support we are an established global leader in jet trenching and continue to seek to provide specialty support services to offshore wind farm developments, including boulder removal and unexploded ordnance clearance.

We provide services primarily in deepwater in the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, North Sea, Asia Pacific and West Africa regions. On July 1, 2022, we completed the acquisition of the Alliance group of companies (collectively “Alliance”), expanding our service capabilities to shallow waters in the Gulf of Mexico. Our North Sea operations are subject to seasonal changes in demand, which generally peaks in the summer months and declines in the winter months. Our services are segregated into three reportable business segments: Well Intervention, Robotics and Production Facilities (Note 10).

9

Our Well Intervention segment provides services enabling our customers to safely access offshore wells for the purpose of performing production enhancement or decommissioning operations, thereby avoiding drilling new wells by extending the useful lives of existing wells and preserving the environment by preventing uncontrolled releases of oil and gas. Our well intervention vessels include the Q4000, the Q5000, the Q7000, the Seawell, the Well Enhancer, and two chartered monohull vessels, the Siem Helix 1 and the Siem Helix 2. Our well intervention equipment includes intervention systems such as intervention riser systems (“IRSs”), subsea intervention lubricators (“SILs”) and the Riserless Open-water Abandonment Module, some of which we provide on a stand-alone basis.

Our Robotics segment provides offshore construction, trenching, seabed clearance, and inspection, repair and maintenance (“IRM”) services to both the oil and gas and the renewable energy markets globally, thereby assisting the delivery of affordable and reliable energy and supporting the responsible transition away from a carbon-based economy. Additionally, our Robotics services are used in and complement our well intervention services. Our Robotics segment includes remotely operated vehicles (“ROVs”), trenchers and robotics support vessels under term charters as well as spot vessels as needed.

Our Production Facilities segment includes the Helix Producer I (the “HP I”), a ship-shaped dynamically positioned floating production vessel, the Helix Fast Response System (the “HFRS”), which combines the HP I, the Q4000 and the Q5000 with certain well control equipment that can be deployed to respond to a well control incident, and our ownership of oil and gas properties. We also have a 20% ownership interest in Independence Hub, LLC (“Independence Hub”) that we account for using the equity method of accounting. In May 2022, we received a net cash distribution of $7.8 million from the sale of the “Independence Hub” platform owned by Independence Hub. All of our current Production Facilities activities are located in the Gulf of Mexico.

Below is a summary of certain components of our indebtedness:

Credit Agreement

On September 30, 2021, we entered into an asset-based credit agreement (the “ABL Facility”) with Bank of America, N.A. (“Bank of America”), Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and Zions Bancorporation. The ABL Facility provides for an $80 million asset-based revolving credit facility, which matures on September 30, 2026, with a springing maturity 91 days prior to the maturity of any outstanding indebtedness with a principal amount in excess of $50 million. The ABL Facility also permits us to request an increase of the facility by up to $70 million, subject to certain conditions.

Commitments under the ABL Facility are comprised of separate U.S. and U.K. revolving credit facility commitments of $45 million and $35 million, respectively. The ABL Facility provides funding based on a borrowing base calculation that includes eligible U.S. and U.K. customer accounts receivable and cash, and provides for a $10 million sub-limit for the issuance of letters of credit. As of June 30, 2022, we had no borrowings under the ABL Facility, and our available borrowing capacity under that facility, based on the borrowing base, totaled $60.3 million, net of $2.3 million of letters of credit issued under that facility.

We and certain of our U.S. and U.K. subsidiaries are the initial borrowers under the ABL Facility, whose obligations under the ABL Facility are guaranteed by those borrowers and certain other U.S. and U.K. subsidiaries, excluding Cal Dive I – Title XI, Inc. (“CDI Title XI”), Helix Offshore Services Limited and certain other enumerated subsidiaries. Other subsidiaries may be added as guarantors of the facility in the future. The ABL Facility is secured by all accounts receivable and designated deposit accounts of the U.S. borrowers and guarantors, and by substantially all of the assets of the U.K. borrowers and guarantors.

U.S. borrowings under the ABL Facility initially bear interest at the LIBOR rate plus a margin of 1.50% to 2.00% or at a base rate plus a margin of 0.50% to 1.00%. U.K. borrowings under the ABL Facility denominated in U.S. dollars initially bear interest at the LIBOR rate and U.K. borrowings denominated in the British pound initially bear interest at the SONIA daily rate, each plus a margin of 1.50% to 2.00%. We also pay a commitment fee of 0.375% to 0.50% per annum on the unused portion of the facility. Beginning on the earlier of June 30, 2023, cessation of LIBOR or an earlier opt-in election, LIBOR will be replaced by either SOFR or term SOFR plus a margin of 0.114% to 0.428% or an alternate benchmark rate.

The ABL Facility includes certain limitations on our ability to incur additional indebtedness, grant liens on assets, pay dividends and make distributions on equity interests, dispose of assets, make investments, repay certain indebtedness, engage in mergers, and other matters, in each case subject to certain exceptions. The ABL Facility contains customary default provisions which, if triggered, could result in acceleration of all amounts then outstanding. The ABL Facility requires us to satisfy and maintain a fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.0 to 1.0 if availability is less than the greater of 10% of the borrowing base or $8 million. The ABL Facility also requires us to maintain a pro forma minimum excess availability of $16 million for the 91 days prior to the maturity of each of our outstanding convertible senior notes.

On July 1, 2022, we entered into a first amendment to the ABL Facility to (i) increase the asset-based revolving credit facility from $80 million to $100 million, (ii) replace LIBOR with Term SOFR (also known as CME Term SOFR), as administered by CME Group Inc., and make certain conforming changes therewith, (iii) increase the amount of permitted debt for the deferred purchase price of property from $25 million to $50 million, (iv) increase the fixed coverage charge ratio trigger from $8 million to $10 million, (v) increase the excess availability requirements prior to the maturity of our outstanding convertible senior notes from $16 million to $20 million, (vi) establish an excess availability requirement for the portion of any post-closing earn-out consideration related to our acquisition of all of the equity interests of Alliance that will be paid in cash (Note 16), and (vii) provide for potential pricing adjustments based on specific metrics and performance targets determined by us and Bank of America, as agent with respect to the ABL Facility, related to environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) changes implemented by us in our business.

Convertible Senior Notes Due 2022 (“2022 Notes”)

We fully redeemed the $35 million remaining principal amount of the 2022 Notes plus accrued interest by delivering cash upon maturity on May 1, 2022. The effective interest rate for the 2022 Notes was 4.8%. For the three- and six month periods ended June 30, 2022, total interest expense related to the 2022 Notes was $0.1 million and $0.6 million, respectively, primarily from coupon interest expense. For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2021, total interest expense related to the 2022 Notes was $0.4 million and $0.8 million, respectively, with coupon interest expense of $0.4 million and $0.7 million, respectively, and the amortization of issuance costs of $0.1 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021.

Convertible Senior Notes Due 2023 (“2023 Notes”)

The 2023 Notes bear interest at a coupon interest rate of 4.125% per annum payable semi-annually in arrears on March 15 and September 15 of each year until maturity. The 2023 Notes mature on September 15, 2023 unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased by us. The 2023 Notes are convertible by their holders at any time beginning March 15, 2023 at an initial conversion rate of 105.6133 shares of our common stock per $1,000 principal amount, which currently represents 3,168,399 potentially convertible shares at an initial conversion price of approximately $9.47 per share of common stock. Upon conversion, we have the right to satisfy our conversion obligation by delivering cash, shares of our common stock or any combination thereof.

Prior to March 15, 2023, holders of the 2023 Notes may convert their notes if the closing price of our common stock exceeds 130% of the conversion price for at least 20 days in the period of 30 consecutive trading days ending on the last trading day of the preceding fiscal quarter (share price condition) or if the trading price of the 2023 Notes is equal to or less than 97% of the conversion value of the notes during the five consecutive business days immediately after any ten consecutive trading day period (trading price condition). Holders of the 2023 Notes may also convert their notes if we make certain distributions on shares of our common stock or engage in certain corporate transactions, in which case the holders may be entitled to an increase in the conversion rate, depending on the price of our common shares and the time remaining to maturity, of up to 47.5260 shares of our common stock per $1,000 principal amount.

Prior to March 15, 2021, the 2023 Notes were not redeemable. On or after March 15, 2021, we may redeem all or any portion of the 2023 Notes if the price of our common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price for at least 20 trading days during any 30 consecutive trading day period preceding our redemption notice. Any redemption would be payable in cash equal to 100% of the principal amount to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest and a “make-whole premium” calculated as the present value of all remaining scheduled interest payments. Holders of the 2023 Notes may convert any of their notes if we call the notes for redemption. Holders of the 2023 Notes may also require us to repurchase the notes following a “fundamental change,” which includes a change of control or a termination of trading of our common stock (as defined in the indenture governing the 2023 Notes).

The indenture governing the 2023 Notes contains customary terms and covenants, including that upon certain events of default, the entire principal amount of and any accrued interest on the notes may be declared immediately due and payable. In the case of certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization relating to us or a significant subsidiary, the principal amount of the 2023 Notes together with any accrued interest will become immediately due and payable.

The effective interest rate for the 2023 Notes is 4.8%. For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022, total interest expense related to the 2023 Notes was $0.3 million and $0.7 million, respectively, with coupon interest expense of $0.3 million and $0.6 million, respectively, and the amortization of debt issuance costs of $0.1 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2022. For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2021, total interest expense related to the 2023 Notes was $0.3 million and $0.7 million, respectively, with coupon interest expense of $0.3 million and $0.6 million, respectively, and the amortization of issuance costs of $0.1 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021.

14

Convertible Senior Notes Due 2026 (“2026 Notes”)

The 2026 Notes bear interest at a coupon interest rate of 6.75% per annum payable semi-annually in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning February 15, 2021 until maturity. The 2026 Notes mature on February 15, 2026 unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased by us. The 2026 Notes are convertible by their holders at any time beginning November 17, 2025 at an initial conversion rate of 143.3795 shares of our common stock per $1,000 principal amount, which currently represents 28,675,900 potentially convertible shares at an initial conversion price of approximately $6.97 per share of common stock. Upon conversion, we have the right to satisfy our conversion obligation by delivering cash, shares of our common stock or any combination thereof.

Prior to November 17, 2025, holders of the 2026 Notes may convert their notes if the closing price of our common stock exceeds 130% of the conversion price for at least 20 days in the period of 30 consecutive trading days ending on the last trading day of the preceding fiscal quarter (share price condition) or if the trading price of the 2026 Notes is equal to or less than 97% of the conversion value of the notes during the five consecutive business days immediately after any ten consecutive trading day period (trading price condition). Holders of the 2026 Notes may also convert their notes if we make certain distributions on shares of our common stock or engage in certain corporate transactions, in which case the holders may be entitled to an increase in the conversion rate, depending on the price of our common shares and the time remaining to maturity, of up to 64.5207 shares of our common stock per $1,000 principal amount.

Prior to August 15, 2023, the 2026 Notes are not redeemable. On or after August 15, 2023, we may redeem all or any portion of the 2026 Notes if the price of our common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price for at least 20 trading days during any 30 consecutive trading day period preceding our redemption notice. Any redemption would be payable in cash equal to 100% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest and a “make-whole premium” calculated as the present value of all remaining scheduled interest payments. Holders of the 2026 Notes may convert any of their notes if we call the notes for redemption. Holders of the 2026 Notes may also require us to repurchase the notes following a “fundamental change,” which includes a change of control or a termination of trading of our common stock (as defined in the indenture governing the 2026 Notes).

The indenture governing the 2026 Notes contains customary terms and covenants, including that upon certain events of default, the entire principal amount of and any accrued interest on the notes may be declared immediately due and payable. In the case of certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization relating to us or a significant subsidiary, the principal amount of the 2026 Notes together with any accrued interest will become immediately due and payable.

The effective interest rate for the 2026 Notes is 7.6%. For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022, total interest expense related to the 2026 Notes was $3.7 million and $7.4 million, respectively, with coupon interest expense of $3.4 million and $6.8 million, respectively, and the amortization of debt issuance costs of $0.3 million and $0.6 million, respectively. For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2021, total interest expense related to the 2026 Notes was $3.7 million and $7.3 million, respectively, with coupon interest expense of $3.4 million and $6.7 million, respectively, and the amortization of debt issuance costs of $0.3 million and $0.6 million, respectively.

2026 Capped Calls

In connection with the 2026 Notes offering, we entered into capped call transactions (the “2026 Capped Calls”) with three separate option counterparties. The 2026 Capped Calls are for an aggregate of 28,675,900 shares of our common stock, which corresponds to the shares into which the 2026 Notes are initially convertible. The capped call shares are subject to certain anti-dilution adjustments. Each capped call option has an initial strike price of approximately $6.97 per share, which corresponds to the initial conversion price of the 2026 Notes, and an initial cap price of approximately $8.42 per share. The strike and cap prices are subject to certain adjustments. The 2026 Capped Calls are intended to offset some or all of the potential dilution to Helix common shares caused by any conversion of the 2026 Notes up to the cap price. The 2026 Capped Calls can be settled in either net shares or cash at our option in components commencing December 15, 2025 and ending February 12, 2026, which could be extended under certain circumstances.

15

The 2026 Capped Calls are subject to either adjustment or termination upon the occurrence of specified extraordinary events affecting Helix, including a merger, tender offer, nationalization, insolvency or delisting. In addition, certain events may result in a termination of the 2026 Capped Calls, including changes in law, insolvency filings and hedging disruptions. The 2026 Capped Calls are recorded at their aggregate cost of $10.6 million as a reduction to common stock in the shareholders’ equity section of our condensed consolidated balance sheets.

MARAD Debt

In 2005, Helix’s subsidiary CDI – Title XI issued its U.S. Government Guaranteed Ship Financing Bonds, Q4000 Series, to refinance the construction financing originally granted in 2002 of the Q4000 vessel (the “MARAD Debt”). The MARAD Debt is guaranteed by the U.S. government pursuant to Title XI of the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, administered by the Maritime Administration (“MARAD”). The obligation of CDI Title XI to reimburse MARAD in the event CDI Title XI fails to repay the MARAD Debt is collateralized by the Q4000 and is guaranteed 50% by us. In addition, we have agreed to bareboat charter the Q4000 from CDI Title XI for so long as the MARAD Debt remains outstanding. The MARAD Debt is payable in equal semi-annual installments, matures in February 2027 and bears interest at a rate of 4.93%. The agreements relating to the bonds and the terms and conditions of our obligations to MARAD in respect of the MARAD Debt are typical for U.S. government-guaranteed ship financing transactions, including customary restrictions on incurring additional liens on the Q4000 and trading restrictions with respect to the vessel as well as working capital requirements.

Other

We previously had a credit agreement (and the amendments made thereafter, collectively the “Credit Agreement”) with a group of lenders led by Bank of America. The Credit Agreement was comprised of a term loan (the “Term Loan”) and a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) with a maximum availability of $175 million and had a maturity date of December 31, 2021. Concurrent with our entering into the ABL Facility on September 30, 2021, the Credit Agreement was terminated, the $28 million remaining balance of the Term Loan was repaid in full and the letters of credit issued under the Revolving Credit Facility were transferred to the ABL Facility. We had no borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility.

We previously had a credit agreement with a syndicated bank lending group for a term loan (the “Nordea Q5000 Loan”) to finance the construction of the Q5000. The loan was secured by the Q5000 and its charter earnings. In January 2021, we repaid the remaining principal amount of $53.6 million.

In accordance with the ABL Facility, the 2023 Notes, the 2026 Notes and the MARAD Debt, we are required to comply with certain covenants, including minimum liquidity and a springing fixed charge coverage ratio (applicable under certain conditions that are currently not applicable) with respect to the ABL Facility and the maintenance of net worth, working capital and debt-to-equity requirements with respect to the MARAD Debt. As of June 30, 2022, we were in compliance with these covenants.

Note 6 — Income Taxes

We operate in multiple jurisdictions with complex tax laws subject to interpretation and judgment. We believe that our application of such laws and the tax impact thereof are reasonable and fairly presented in our condensed consolidated financial statements.

For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022, we recognized income tax expense of $1.4 million and $3.6 million, respectively, resulting in effective tax rates of (5.1)% and (5.2)%, respectively. For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2021, we recognized income tax benefit of $2.0 million and $1.9 million, respectively, resulting in effective tax rates of 12.6% and 10.0%, respectively. These variances were primarily attributable to the earnings mix between our higher and lower tax rate jurisdictions as well as losses for which no financial statement benefits have been recognized. For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022, our aggregate tax expense was greater than the aggregate tax benefit of our losses, resulting in negative effective tax rates. The effective tax rates in those periods were significantly lower than the U.S. statutory rate primarily due to non-creditable foreign income and deemed profit taxes, as well as unbenefited tax losses.

Note 7 — Revenue from Contracts with Customers

Disaggregation of Revenue

Our revenues are primarily derived from short-term and long-term service contracts with customers. Our service contracts generally contain either provisions for specific time, material and equipment charges that are billed in accordance with the terms of such contracts (dayrate contracts) or lump sum payment provisions (lump sum contracts). We record revenues net of taxes collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities. Contracts are classified as long-term if all or part of the contract is to be performed over a period extending beyond 12 months from the effective date of the contract. Long-term contracts may include multi-year agreements whereby the commitment for services in any one year may be short in duration.
