Form 10-K Summary 1
144 Statements we make in this Annual Report on Form 10-K which express a belief, expectation or intention, as well as those that are not
historical fact, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forwardlooking statements are subject to various risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including those to which we refer under the headings
“Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” in Items 1 and 1A of Part I of this Annual Report on
Form 10 - K .
Item 1. BUSINESS General
McDermott International, Inc. (“McDermott”), a corporation incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Panama in 1959, is a fully
integrated provider of engineering, procurement, construction and installation (“EPCI”) and technology solutions to the energy industry. Our
common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the trading symbol MDR.
On May 10, 2018, we completed our combination with Chicago Bridge & Iron Company N.V. (“CB&I”) through a series of transactions (the
“Combination”) (see below (Business Combination with CB&I) and Note 3, Business Combination , to the accompanying Consolidated
Financial Statements for further discussion). We design and build end-to-end infrastructure and technology solutions to transport and transform
oil and gas into a variety of products. Our proprietary technologies, integrated expertise and comprehensive solutions are utilized for offshore,
subsea, power, liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) and downstream energy projects around the world. Our customers include national, major
integrated and other oil and gas companies as well as producers of petrochemicals and electric power, and we operate in most major energy
producing regions throughout the world.
Our business is organized into five operating groups, which represent our reportable segments, consisting of: North, Central and South America
(“NCSA”); Europe, Africa, Russia and Caspian (“EARC”); the Middle East and North Africa (“MENA”); Asia Pacific (“APAC”); and
Technology. For further discussion, see “Business Segments” below and Note 24, Segment Reporting , to the accompanying Consolidated
Financial Statements for further discussion.
In this report, unless the context otherwise indicates, “McDermott,” “we,” “our” or “us” mean McDermott and its consolidated subsidiaries,
and references to any of the Notes to the accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements refer to the Notes to the Consolidated Financial
Statements included in Item 8 of Part II.
Business Combination with CB&I
On May 10, 2018 (the “Combination Date”) we completed the Combination. On the Combination Date, we acquired the equity of certain U.S.
and non-U.S. CB&I subsidiaries that owned CB&I’s technology business, as well as certain intellectual property rights, for $2.87 billion in
cash consideration that was funded using debt financing and existing cash. Also on the Combination Date, CB&I shareholders received
0.82407 shares of McDermott common stock for each share of CB&I common stock tendered in an exchange offer. Each remaining share of
CB&I common stock held by CB&I shareholders not acquired by McDermott in the exchange offer was effectively converted into the right to
receive the same 0.82407 shares of McDermott common stock that was paid in the exchange offer, together with cash in lieu of any fractional
shares of McDermott common stock, less any applicable withholding taxes. Stock-settled equity based awards relating to shares of CB&I’s
common stock were either canceled and converted into the right to receive cash or were converted into comparable McDermott awards on
generally the same terms and conditions as prior to the Combination Date. We issued 84.5 million shares of McDermott common stock to the
former CB&I shareholders and converted CB&I stock-settled equity awards into McDermott stock-settled equity-based awards to be settled in
approximately 2.2 million shares of McDermott common stock. See Note 3, Business Combination, to the accompanying Consolidated
Financial Statements for further discussion.
Strategic Review of Business Portfolio
We have performed a strategic review of our business portfolio, which included businesses acquired in the Combination. Our review sought to
determine if any portions of our business are non-core for purposes of our vertically integrated offering model. As a result of our review, we
identified our storage tank and U.S. pipe fabrication businesses as non-core for purposes of our vertically integrated offering model. As a result
and in view of the considerations discussed in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations-Liquidity and Capital Resources,” we are developing plans to sell each of the two businesses, subject to approval by our Board of
Directors. We expect a substantial portion of the proceeds resulting from the sales of these businesses would be utilized to reduce our
1 Business Segments
Following completion of the Combination, during the second quarter of 2018, we reorganized our operations into five business segments. This
reorganization is intended to better serve our global clients, leverage our workforce, help streamline operations and provide enhanced growth
opportunities. Our five business segments, which represent our reportable segments are: NCSA; EARC; MENA; APAC; and Technology. We
also report certain corporate and other non-operating activities under the heading of “Corporate and Other,” which primarily reflects costs that
are not allocated to our segments. See Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”, and
Note 24, Segment Reporting , to the accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements for further discussion of our business segments.
Through our five business segments, we deliver a broad services offering that addresses four key end markets, as follows:
Offshore and subsea —We offer a comprehensive range of technology and EPCI services for the upstream oil & gas sector, including any
combination of front-end design, engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction, installation, hook-up, start-up and commissioning
services across all phases of the project life cycle. We have a particular focus on installation of offshore oil & gas production systems, including
jackets, topsides and floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels and pipelines, as well as installation of subsea production
LNG —We offer a full range of technology and engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction services for the LNG industry, with a
focus on natural gas liquefaction plants and LNG regasification terminals. We provide a full range of services, including conceptual design,
detailed engineering, material procurement, pipe and storage tank fabrication, construction, project management, compliance support,
commissioning and startup, and operator training.
Downstream —We design, build, and offer technology licenses and services for state-of-the-art petrochemical and refinery process units
and plants. Our comprehensive services include market-leading proprietary technologies, process design, front-end engineering and design,
detailed engineering, material procurement, pipe and storage tank fabrication, construction, permitting assistance, operator training,
commissioning and startup. We offer solutions for clean fuels production, including low sulfur gasoline and diesel, as well as a wide range of
refinery process units and related ancillary facilities.
Power —We design and build new combined-cycle and simple-cycle gas-fired power generation projects and provide related engineering,
procurement, construction and commissioning services. Additionally, we are a joint venture partner of NET Power, LLC, a company that is
developing a new natural gas power generation technology that produces low-cost electricity while reducing air emissions.
Our contracts are awarded on a competitively bid and negotiated basis. We execute our contracts through a variety of methods, principally
fixed-price, but also including cost reimbursable, cost-plus, day-rate and unit-rate basis or some combination of those methods. Factors that
customers may consider include price, facility or equipment availability, technical capabilities of equipment and personnel, efficiency, safety
record and reputation.
Fixed-price contracts are for a fixed amount to cover costs and any profit element for a defined scope of work. Fixed-price contracts can
involve more risk to us because they require us to predetermine both the quantities of work to be performed and the costs associated with
executing the work. See “Risk Factors—We are subject to risks associated with contractual pricing in our industry, including the risk that, if our
actual costs exceed the costs we estimate on our fixed-price contracts, our profitability will decline and we may suffer losses” in Item 1A.
We have contracts that extend beyond one year. Most of our long-term contracts have provisions for progress payments. We attempt to cover
anticipated increases in labor, material and service costs of our long-term contracts either through an estimate of such charges, which is
reflected in the original price, or through risk-sharing mechanisms, such as escalation or price adjustments for items such as labor and
We generally recognize our contract revenues and related costs on a percentage-of-completion basis. Accordingly, for each contract, we
regularly review contract price and cost estimates as the work progresses and reflect adjustments in profit proportionate to the percentage of
completion of the related project in the period when we revise those estimates. To the extent these adjustments result in a reduction or
elimination of previously reported profits with respect to a project, we recognize a charge against current earnings, which could be material.
2 Our arrangements with customers frequently require us to provide letters of credit, bid and performance bonds or guarantees to secure bids or
performance under contracts. While these letters of credit, bonds and guarantees may involve significant dollar amounts, historically there have
been no material payments to our customers under these arrangements.
Some of our contracts contain provisions that require us to pay liquidated damages if we are responsible for the failure to meet specified
contractual milestone dates and the applicable customer asserts a claim under those provisions. Those contracts define the conditions under
which our customers may make claims against us for liquidated damages. In many cases in which we have historically had potential exposure
for liquidated damages, such damages ultimately were not asserted by our customers. See Note 23, Commitments and Contingencies, to the
accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements.
Change orders, which are a normal and recurring part of our business, can increase (sometimes substantially) the future scope and cost of a job.
Therefore, change order awards (although frequently beneficial in the long term) can have the short-term effect of reducing the job percentage
of completion and thus the revenues and profits recognized to date. We regularly review contract price and cost estimates as the work
progresses and reflect adjustments in profit, proportionate to the job percentage of completion in the period when those estimates are revised.
Revenue from unapproved change orders is recognized to the extent of amounts management expects to recover or costs incurred. Unapproved
change orders that are disputed by the customer are treated as claims.
In the event of a contract deferral or cancellation, we generally would be entitled to recover costs incurred, settlement expenses and profit on
work completed prior to deferral or termination. Significant or numerous cancellations could adversely affect our business, financial condition,
results of operations and cash flows.
Some of our contracts, regardless of type, may operate under joint venture, consortium or other collaborative arrangements. Typically, we enter
into these arrangements with reputable companies with whom we have worked previously. These arrangements are generally made to
strengthen our market position or technical skills, or where the size, scale or location of the project warrants the use of such arrangements.
Remaining Performance Obligations (“RPOs”)
RPOs represent the amount of revenues we expect to recognize in the future from our contract commitments on projects. See Item 7,
“Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Outlook—Remaining Performance Obligations”
for discussion and quantification of our RPO’s. See also “Risk Factors—Our RPOs are subject to unexpected adjustments and cancellations” in
We operate in a competitive environment. Technology performance, price, timeliness of completion, quality, safety record, track record and
reputation are principal competitive factors within our industry. There are numerous regional, national and global competitors that offer similar
services to those offered by each of our operating groups, including Axens SA; Bechtel Group Inc.; China Offshore Oil Engineering Co. Ltd.;
Fluor Corporation; Honeywell/UOP; Hyundai Heavy Industrial Co. Ltd.; KBR Inc.; Kiewit Corporation; Larsen and Toubro Ltd.; Lyondell
Basell Industries N.V.; Petrofac International Ltd.; Saipem S.P.A.; Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd.; Subsea 7 S.A.; Techidas Reunidas,
S.A; TechnipFMC plc; Wood plc; Worley Parson Limited and W.R. Grace & Co.
See Note 24, Segment Reporting , to the accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements for information on customers that accounted for
significant percentages of our consolidated revenues.
Raw Materials and Suppliers
The principal raw materials we use are metal plate, structural steel, pipe, fittings, catalysts, proprietary equipment and selected engineered
equipment such as pressure vessels, exchangers, pumps, valves, compressors, motors and electrical and instrumentation components. Most of
these materials are available from numerous suppliers worldwide, with some furnished under negotiated supply agreements. We anticipate
being able to obtain these materials for the foreseeable future; however, the price, availability and scheduled deliveries offered by our suppliers
may vary s...
