John Evans, Chief Executive Officer, said:

In the third quarter of 2022, Subsea7 delivered a strong performance in Subsea and Conventional while performance in Renewables stabilised. During the quarter an agreement to form a new joint venture was announced, involving the combination by SLB and Aker Solutions of their subsea hardware operations, and the acquisition by Subsea7 of a 10% interest in the new company for $306.5 million. The joint venture will replace SLB in Subsea Integration Alliance and our investment will strengthen the relationship with our partners. In addition, we expect an attractive return on investment on a standalone basis. The Subsea Integration Alliance agreement will be extended to 2033 on completion of the transaction.

In September, we announced a funding plan for our fixed offshore wind business, Seaway7. A combination of $200 million raised through the issuance of equity and $450 million of debt facilities leaves the business and its new-build vessel programme fully funded. Reflecting its strong outlook and reaffirming our belief that Seaway7’s shares are materially undervalued, Subsea 7 S.A. subscribed to 72.4% of the equity issue to maintain its shareholding. This was mirrored by the other major shareholders, Songa Offshore and Lotus Marine.

Together these steps strengthen our position across the energy landscape as demand for both traditional and new energy resources continues to grow.

Operational highlights

In the third quarter the Subsea and Conventional business unit made good progress in engineering and procurement activities on the Mero 3 and Marjan 2 projects in Brazil and Saudi Arabia respectively. Our global enabler vessels were active on projects including Sakarya in Turkey, Sangomar in Senegal and the Hywind Tampen floating wind development in Norway.

In the Renewables business unit, the fleet achieved high utilisation including the completion of monopile installation activities on Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) in the Netherlands and Formosa 2 in Taiwan, in line with our Q2 projections. Our cable lay vessels were fully utilised on Seagreen in the UK, and on HKZ.

Third quarter financial review

Revenue of $1.4 billion was broadly flat compared to the prior year period reflecting robust levels of activity in both the Subsea and Conventional, and Renewables business units. Adjusted EBITDA of $171 million equates to an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.2%, down from 12.8% in Q3 2021, which benefited from a greater number of project close-outs. After depreciation and amortisation charges of $117 million, net operating income declined to $53 million. Net income for the quarter declined to breakeven from $45 million in the prior year, partly due to net foreign exchange losses of $25 million compared with a gain of $27 million in the prior year quarter, recognised within other gains and losses.

Net cash generated from operations was $210 million including an $87 million beneficial movement in net working capital. Net cash used in investing activities was $76 million, including $73 million related to purchases of property, plant and equipment. Net cash used in financing activities was $60 million which included share repurchases of $21 million. Overall, cash and cash equivalents increased by $69 million from 30 June 2022 to $533 million with net debt of $33 million, including lease liabilities of $204 million.

Third quarter order intake was $1.0 billion comprising new awards of $0.6 billion, escalations of $0.4 billion, and adverse foreign exchange movements of $0.2 billion, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 0.7. Backlog at the end of September was $7.1 billion, of which $1.3 billion is expected to be executed during the fourth quarter of 2022 and $3.2 billion in 2023.

Outlook

We continue to expect that revenue and Adjusted EBITDA in 2022 will be broadly in line with 2021. We anticipate that revenue and Adjusted EBITDA in 2023 will be higher than 2022, with a weighting towards the second half.

The long-term outlook for both traditional and new energy is robust supported, in part, by the increased focus of European countries on energy security. After a prolonged period of underinvestment by the oil and gas industry, we see a gradual and durable improvement in demand for our subsea services. At the same time we expect limited new-build vessel capacity to enter our pipelay market. Demand for our fixed offshore wind services continues to increase underpinned by society’s push for lower carbon energy sources.

Subsea7 is well positioned to address both markets, with a large and capable fleet of young vessels. Availability of installation capacity for subsea and offshore fixed wind markets is already tight for 2024, and tightening for 2025, resulting in improved risk profiles, payment terms and margins relating to contracts recently awarded and under negotiation. Meanwhile, bidding activity remains high, with a tender pipeline of around $16 billion in subsea, up 20% on the prior year, and $7 billion in fixed offshore wind.
