SEACOR Marine Announces Closing of Joint Venture with Montco Offshore, LLC

SEACOR Marine Holdings Inc. (NYSE:SMHI) (“SEACOR Marine”) announced that
the formation and capitalization of a new joint venture company (the
“Joint Venture”) by SEACOR Marine and Montco Offshore, LLC (“MOI”) was
consummated on February 8, 2018.

In accordance with the terms of a Joint Venture Contribution and
Formation Agreement, SEACOR Marine and MOI contributed certain liftboat
vessels and other related assets to the Joint Venture, and the Joint
Venture assumed certain operating liabilities and indebtedness
associated with the liftboat vessels and related assets. The Joint
Venture consolidates the ownership and operation of eleven liftboat
vessels previously operated by a wholly-owned subsidiary of SEACOR
Marine, six liftboat vessels previously operated by MOI, and two
liftboat vessels previously operated by a previously existing joint
venture between an affiliate of MOI and an affiliate of SEACOR Marine.
The Joint Venture assumed approximately $131 million of indebtedness
from MOI’s pre-petition facilities which, apart from a guarantee of
interest payments for two years after the closing of the transactions,
is non-recourse to SEACOR Marine. SEACOR Marine holds approximately 72%
of all equity interests in the Joint Venture, and is entitled to appoint
a majority of the board of managers of the Joint Venture.

possibility of U.S. government implemented moratoriums directing
operators to cease certain drilling activities in the U.S. Gulf of
Mexico and any extension of such moratoriums, weakening demand for

decline in the price of oil, increased government legislation and
regulation of SEACOR Marine’s businesses could increase cost of
operations, increased competition if the Jones Act and related

with the provision of emergency response services, such as the response
to the oil spill as a result of the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon in
April 2010, decreased demand for SEACOR Marine’s services as a result of
declines in the global economy, declines in valuations in the global
financial markets and a lack of liquidity in the credit sectors,
including, interest rate fluctuations, availability of credit, inflation
rates, change in laws, trade barriers, commodity prices and currency
exchange fluctuations, the cyclical nature of the oil and gas industry,

and gas exploration and production activity, safety record requirements,
