PART I
 
Item 1.
Business.
GENERAL DEVELOPMENT OF BUSINESS
Oceaneering International, Inc. is a global oilfield provider of engineered services and products, primarily to the offshore oil and gas industry, with a focus on deepwater applications. Oceaneering also serves the defense, entertainment and aerospace industries. Oceaneering was organized as a Delaware corporation in 1969 out of the combination of three diving service companies founded in the early 1960s. Since our establishment, we have concentrated on the development and marketing of underwater services and products to meet customer needs requiring the use of advanced deepwater technology. We are one of the world's largest underwater services contractors. The services and products we provide to the oil and gas industry include remotely operated vehicles, specialty subsea hardware, engineering and project management, subsea intervention services, including manned diving, and asset integrity and nondestructive testing services. Our foreign operations, principally in the North Sea, Africa, Brazil, Australia and Asia, accounted for approximately 66% of our revenue, or $2.2 billion, for the year ended December 31, 2013.
Our business segments are contained within two businesses – services and products provided to the oil and gas industry ("Oilfield") and all other services and products ("Advanced Technologies"). Our four business segments within the Oilfield business are Remotely Operated Vehicles ("ROVs"), Subsea Products, Subsea Projects and Asset Integrity. We report our Advanced Technologies business as one segment. Unallocated Expenses are expenses not associated with a specific business segment. These consist of expenses related to our incentive and deferred compensation plans, including restricted stock and bonuses, as well as other general expenses.
Oilfield. The primary focus of our Oilfield business over the last several years has been toward increasing our asset base and capabilities for providing services and products for deepwater offshore operations and subsea completions.
ROVs. We provide ROVs, which are submersible vehicles operated from the surface, to customers in the oil and gas industry for drilling support and vessel-based services, including subsea hardware installation, construction, pipeline inspection, survey and facilities inspection, maintenance and repair. We design and build our new ROVs at in-house facilities, the largest of which is in Morgan City, LA. Should sufficient market demand and access to component parts exist, we believe we are capable of manufacturing over 50 ROVs per year. In 2013, we added 26 ROVs that we manufactured. We have grown our ROV fleet size to 304 at 2013 from 289 at December 31, 2012 and 267 at December 31, 2011.
Subsea Products. We provide a variety of tooling and specialty subsea hardware. In 2005, we acquired Grayloc Products, L.L.C. and its subsidiary (together, "Grayloc"), an oil and gas industry supplier of high performance clamp connectors used in production manifold, flowline and valve installations, and in 2010 we acquired all the operating assets of SMX International Canada Inc., a Canadian manufacturer of clamp connectors, check valves, and universal ball joints to augment Grayloc's business. In 2008, we purchased GTO Subsea AS, a Norwegian rental provider of specialized subsea dredging equipment, including ROV-deployed units, to the offshore oil and gas industry. In 2011, we purchased two Norwegian companies: Norse Cutting and Abandonment AS, an oilfield technology company specializing in providing subsea tooling services and plugging, abandonment and decommissioning of offshore oil and gas production platforms and subsea wellheads; and Mechanica AS, a design and fabrication company specializing in subsea tools for the offshore oil and gas industry.
We provide provide various types of subsea umbilicals through our Umbilical Solutions division. Offshore operators use umbilicals to control subsea wellhead hydrocarbon flow rates, monitor downhole and wellhead conditions and perform chemical injection. Subsea umbilicals are also used to provide power and fluids to other subsea processing hardware, including pumps and gas separation equipment. We entered this market in 1994 via an acquisition. During 1998, we constructed an umbilical plant in Brazil and relocated, modernized and increased the capabilities, including the production of steel tube umbilicals, of our umbilical manufacturing facility in Scotland. During 2004, we moved our U.S. facility to a new location, which has additional capacity and the capability of producing steel tube umbilicals, and added limited steel tube capability to our plant in Brazil. In 2006, we increased the thermoplastic umbilical capability at our Scotland facility. In 2010, we began to make modifications to our Brazil umbilical facility to increase its capabilities, and in 2012 we began to upgrade both our Brazil and Scotland plants to meet changing customer requirements. We continue to invest in our plants to meet the requirements of the deepwater operations of our customers.

Subsea Projects. Our Subsea Projects segment consists of our subsea installation, inspection, maintenance and repair services, principally in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore Africa, utilizing a fleet of two owned and five long-term chartered dynamically positioned deepwater vessels with integrated high-specification work-class ROVs onboard, and four owned shallow water diving vessels, spot-chartered vessels and other assets. The dynamically positioned vessels are equipped with thrusters that allow them to maintain a constant position at a location without the use of anchors. They are used in the inspection, maintenance and repair of subsea facilities, pipeline or flowline tie-ins, pipeline crossings and installations. These vessels can carry and install coiled tubing or umbilicals required to bring subsea well completions into production (tie-back to production facilities). In 2012, we rechartered a deepwater vessel, the Ocean Intervention III, for two years, with extension options for up to three additional years, and which we have extended to January 2015. We have also chartered an additional larger deepwater vessel, the Olympic Intervention IV, for an initial term of five years, which began in the third quarter of 2008, and which we have extended to July 2016. We outfitted each of these deepwater vessels with two of our high-specification work-class ROVs, and we have been utilizing these vessels to perform subsea hardware installation and inspection, maintenance and repair projects, and to conduct well intervention services in the ultra-deep waters of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore Angola. We also charter or lease dynamically positioned vessels on a short-term basis. In 2010, we acquired a vessel, which we renamed the Ocean Patriot, and we have converted it to a dynamically positioned saturation diving and ROV service vessel. We installed a 12-man saturation ("SAT") diving system and one work-class ROV on the vessel, and we placed the vessel into service in December 2011. In 2012, we moved the Ocean Intervention III to Angola and chartered the Bourbon Oceanteam 101 to work on a three-year field support contract. Under the field support contract, we supply project management, engineering, and the two chartered vessels, each equipped with two Oceaneering high-specification work-class ROVs. We are also providing ROV tooling, asset integrity services and installation and workover control system services. We also provide other chartered vessels and barges on an as-requested basis from our customer. The customer for this contract has options to extend the contract for two additional one-year periods. In March 2013, we commenced a five-year charter for a Jones Act-compliant multi-service support vessel that we are using in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. We have outfitted the vessel, which we have renamed the Ocean Alliance, with two of our high-specification work-class ROVs. In December 2013, we commenced a three-year charter for the Normand Flower, a multi-service subsea marine support vessel. We have made modifications to the vessel, including reconfiguration to accommodate two of our high-specification work-class ROVs. We anticipate we will use the vessel in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico to perform inspection, maintenance and repair projects and hardware installations. We have options to extend the charter for up to three additional years.
Asset Integrity. Through our Asset Integrity division, we offer a wide range of asset integrity services to customers worldwide to improve the reliability and safety of their facilities onshore and offshore, while reducing their unplanned maintenance and repair costs. We also provide third-party inspections to satisfy contractual structural specifications, internal safety standards or regulatory requirements.
In December 2011, we purchased AGR Field Operations Holdings AS and subsidiaries, which provide inspection, maintenance, subsea engineering and field operations services, principally to the oil and gas industry. We report these operations in our Asset Integrity and Subsea Projects segments.
General. During the last five years, we have also made several small acquisitions to add complementary technology or niche markets. We intend to continue our strategy of acquiring, as opportunities arise, additional assets or businesses, to improve our market position or expand into related service and product lines.
Advanced Technologies. Our Advanced Technologies segment designs, develops and operates robotic systems and ROVs for non-oilfield markets, performs commercial theme park animation and civil works projects, and designs, develops and fabricates spacecraft hardware and high-temperature insulation products.

MARKETING
Oilfield. Oil and gas exploration and development expenditures fluctuate from year to year. In particular, budgetary approval for more expensive drilling and production in deepwater, an area in which we have a high degree of focus, may be postponed or suspended during periods when exploration and production companies reduce their offshore capital spending.
We market our ROVs, Subsea Products, Subsea Projects and Asset Integrity services and products to domestic, international and foreign national oil and gas companies engaged in offshore exploration, development and production. We also provide services and products as a subcontractor to other oilfield service companies operating as prime contractors. Customers for these services typically award contracts on a competitive-bid basis. These contracts are typically less than one year in duration, although we enter into multi-year contracts from time to time.
In connection with the services we perform in our Oilfield business, we generally seek contracts that compensate us on a dayrate basis. Under dayrate contracts, the contractor provides the ROV, vessel or equipment and the required personnel to

5


operate the unit and compensation is based on a rate per day for each day the unit is used. The typical dayrate depends on market conditions, the nature of the operations to be performed, the duration of the work, the equipment and services to be provided, the geographical areas involved and other variables. Dayrate contracts may also contain an alternate, lower dayrate that applies when a unit is moving to a new site or when operations are interrupted or restricted by equipment breakdowns, adverse weather or water conditions or other conditions beyond the contractor's control. Some dayrate contracts provide for revision of the specified dayrates in the event of material changes in the cost of labor or specified items. Sales contracts for our products are generally for a fixed price.
Advanced Technologies. We market our marine services and related engineering services to government agencies, major defense contractors, NASA and NASA contractors, and to theme park and other industrial customers outside the energy sector.
Major Customers. Our top five customers in 2013, 2012 and 2011 accounted for 40%, 34% and 30%, respectively, of our consolidated revenue. All of our top five customers were oil and gas exploration and production companies served by our Oilfield business segments. During 2013 and 2012, revenue from one customer, BP plc and subsidiaries, accounted for 18% and 13% of our total consolidated revenue, respectively. No individual customer accounted for more than 10% of our consolidated revenue during 2011.
While we do not depend on any one customer, the loss of one of our significant customers could, at least on a short-term basis, have an adverse effect on our results of operations and cash flows.
RAW MATERIALS
Most of the raw materials we use in our manufacturing operations, such as steel in various forms, copper, electronic components and plastics, are available from many sources. However, some components we use to manufacture subsea umbilicals are available from limited sources. With the exception of certain kinds of steel tube, where we are limited in the number of available suppliers, we can offer alternative materials or technologies in many cases, which depends on the requisite approval of our customers. While we have experienced some level of difficulty in obtaining certain kinds of steel tube in the past due to global demand outstripping capacity, an increase in supplier capacity, coupled with a drop in global demand, has resolved this issue, and we believe the situation is unlikely to recur in the near future. Additionally, the availability of certain grades of aramid fibers, which we use in the manufacture of our thermoplastic umbilicals, has been limited from time to time due to demand for military use. Presently, we are not experiencing such a shortage, and we do not anticipate a shortage in the foreseeable future.
COMPETITION
Our businesses operate in highly competitive industry segments.
Oilfield
We are one of several companies that provide underwater services and specialty subsea hardware on a worldwide basis. We compete for contracts with companies that have worldwide operations, as well as numerous others operating locally in various areas. We believe that our ability to provide a wide range of underwater services and products on a worldwide basis enables us to compete effectively in the oilfield exploration and development market. In some cases involving projects that require less sophisticated equipment, small companies have been able to bid for contracts at prices uneconomical to us. Additionally, in some jurisdictions we are subject to foreign governmental regulations favoring or requiring the awarding of contracts to local contractors or requiring foreign contractors to employ citizens of, or purchase supplies from, a particular jurisdiction. These regulations may adversely affect our ability to compete.
ROVs. We believe we are the world's largest owner/operator of work-class ROVs employed in oil and gas related operations. At December 31, 2013, we owned 304 work-class ROVs, and we estimate that this represented approximately 35% of the work-class ROVs utilized in the oilfield service industry. We compete with several major companies on a worldwide basis and with numerous others operating locally in various areas.
Competition for ROV services historically has been based on equipment availability, location of or ability to deploy the equipment, quality of service and price. The relative importance of these factors can vary over time based on market conditions. The ability to develop improved equipment and techniques and to train and retain skilled personnel is also an important competitive factor in our markets. Although demand for ROVs has been increasing, our margins have not increased in recent periods due to increasing competition, increasing costs and pricing pressure.

6


Subsea Products. There are many competitors offering specialized products. We are one of several companies that compete on a worldwide basis for the provision of thermoplastic and steel tube subsea control umbilicals, and compared to current and forecasted market demand, we are faced with overcapacity in the umbilical manufacturing market.
Subsea Projects. We perform subsea intervention and hardware installation services, principally in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and offshore Angola, from two owned and five chartered multiservice deepwater vessels. We are one of many companies that offer these services. In general, our competitors can move their vessels to where we operate from other locations with relative ease. We also have many competitors that supply commercial diving services to the oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico.
Asset Integrity. The worldwide asset integrity and inspection markets consist of a wide range of inspection and certification requirements in many industries. We compete in only selected portions of this market. We believe that our broad geographic sales and operational coverage, long history of operations, technical reputation, application of various pipeline inspection technologies and accreditation to international quality standards enable us to compete effectively in our selected asset integrity and inspection services market segments.
Advanced Technologies
Engineering services is a very broad market with a large number of competitors. We compete in specialized areas in which we can combine our extensive program management experience, mechanical engineering expertise and the capability to continue the development of conceptual project designs into the manufacture of prototype equipment for customers.
SEASONALITY AND BACKLOG
We generate a material amount of our consolidated revenue from contracts for services in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico in our Subsea Projects segment, which is usually more active in the second and third quarters, as compared to the rest of the year. The European operations of our Asset Integrity segment are also seasonally more active in the second and third quarters. Revenue in our ROV segment is subject to seasonal variations in demand, with our first quarter generally being the low quarter of the year. The level of our ROV seasonality depends on the number of ROVs we have engaged in vessel-based subsea infrastructure inspection, maintenance, repair and installation, which is more seasonal than drilling support. Revenue in each of our Subsea Products and Advanced Technologies segments has generally not been seasonal.
The amounts of backlog orders we believed to be firm as of December 31, 2013 and 2012 were as follows (in millions):

PATENTS AND LICENSES
We currently hold a number of U.S. and foreign patents and have numerous pending patent applications. We have acquired patents and licenses and granted licenses to others when we have considered it advantageous for us to do so. Although in the aggregate our patents and licenses are important to us, we do not regard any single patent or license or group of related patents or licenses as critical or essential to our business as a whole. In general, we depend on our technological capabilities and the application of know-how rather than patents and licenses in the conduct of our operations.

REGULATION
Our operations are affected from time to time and in varying degrees by foreign and domestic political developments and foreign, federal and local laws and regulations, including those relating to:

operating from and around offshore drilling, production and marine facilities;
national preference for local equipment and personnel;
marine vessel safety;
protection of the environment;
workplace health and safety;
taxation of earnings;
license requirements for exportation of our equipment and technology; and
currency conversion and repatriation.
In addition, our Oilfield business depends on the demand for our products and services from the oil and gas industry and, therefore, is affected by changing taxes, price controls and other laws and regulations relating to the oil and gas industry generally. The adoption of laws and regulations curtailing offshore exploration and development drilling for oil and gas for economic and other policy reasons would adversely affect our operations by limiting demand for our services. We cannot determine the extent to which new legislation, new regulations or changes in existing laws or regulations may affect our future operations.
Our operations and properties are subject to a wide variety of increasingly complex and stringent foreign, federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations, including those governing discharges into the air and water, the handling and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes, the remediation of soil and groundwater contaminated by hazardous substances and the health and safety of employees. Sanctions for noncompliance may include revocation of permits, corrective action orders, administrative or civil penalties and criminal prosecution. Some environmental laws provide for strict, joint and several liability for remediation of spills and other releases of hazardous substances, as well as damage to natural resources. In addition, companies may be subject to claims alleging personal injury or property damage as a result of alleged exposure to hazardous substances. These laws and regulations may also expose us to liability for the conduct of or conditions caused by others, or for our acts that were in compliance with all applicable laws at the time such acts were performed.
Environmental laws and regulations that apply to our operations include the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (each, as amended) and similar laws that provide for responses to, and liability for, releases of hazardous substances into the environment. Environmental laws and regulations also include similar foreign, state or local counterparts to the above-mentioned federal laws, which regulate air emissions, water discharges, hazardous substances and waste, and require public disclosure related to the use of various hazardous substances. Our operations are also governed by laws and regulations relating to workplace safety and worker health, primarily, in the United States, the Occupational Safety and Health Act and regulations promulgated thereunder.
Compliance with federal, state and local provisions regulating the discharge of materials into the environment or relating to the protection of the environment has not had a material impact on our capital expenditures, earnings or competitive position. We cannot predict all of the environmental requirements or circumstances that will exist in the future but anticipate that environmental control and protection standards will become increasingly stringent and costly. Based on our experience to date, we do not currently anticipate any material adverse effect on our business or consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows as a result of future compliance with existing environmental laws and regulations. However, future events, such as changes in existing laws and regulations or their interpretation, more vigorous enforcement policies of regulatory agencies, or stricter or different interpretations of existing laws and regulations, may require additional expenditures by us, which may be material. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that we will not incur significant environmental compliance costs in the future.

For a discussion of risks attendant to our foreign operations, see the discussion in Item 1A, "Risk Factors" under the heading "Our international operations involve additional risks not associated with domestic operations."
CAUTIONARY STATEMENT CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
We are including the following discussion to inform our existing and potential security holders generally of some of the risks and uncertainties that can affect our company and to take advantage of the "safe harbor" protection for forward-looking statements that applicable federal securities law affords.

From time to time, our management or persons acting on our behalf make forward-looking statements to inform existing and potential security holders about our company. These statements may include projections and estimates concerning the timing and success of specific projects and our future orders, revenue, income and capital spending. Forward-looking statements are generally accompanied by words such as "estimate," "plan," "project," "predict," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "plan," "forecast," "budget," "goal," "may," "should," or other words that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. In addition, sometimes we will specifically describe a statement as being a forward-looking statement and refer to this cautionary statement.

In addition, various statements this report contains, including those that express a belief, expectation or intention are forward-looking statements. Those forward-looking statements appear in Part I of this report in Item 1 – "Business," Item 2 – "Properties" and Item 3 – "Legal Proceedings" and in Part II of this report in Item 7 – "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," Item 7A – "Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk" and in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements incorporated into Item 8 and elsewhere in this report. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report, we disclaim any obligation to update these statements, and we caution you not to rely unduly on them. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and assumptions about future events. While our management considers these expectations and assumptions to be reasonable, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and other risks, contingencies and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. These risks, contingencies and uncertainties relate to, among other matters, the following:

worldwide demand for and prices of oil and gas;
the effects of new regulations adopted by the U.S. government in response to the Macondo well incident;
the continued availability of qualified personnel;
general economic and business conditions and industry trends;
the volatility and uncertainties of credit markets;
the highly competitive nature of our businesses;
decisions about offshore developments to be made by oil and gas exploration, development and production companies;

9


cancellations of contracts, change orders and other contractual modifications and the resulting adjustments to our backlog;
collections from our customers;
the increased use of subsea completions and our ability to capture associated market share;
the continued strength of the industry segments in which we are involved;
the levels of oil and gas production to be processed by the Medusa field production spar platform;
our future financial performance, including availability, terms and deployment of capital;
the consequences of significant changes in currency exchange rates;
changes in tax laws, regulations and interpretation by taxing authorities;
our ability to obtain raw materials and parts on a timely basis and, in some cases, from limited sources;
operating risks normally incident to offshore exploration, development and production operations;
hurricanes and other adverse weather and sea conditions;
delays in deliveries of deepwater drilling rigs;
cost and time associated with drydocking of our vessels;
adverse outcomes from legal or regulatory proceedings;
changes in, or our ability to comply with, government regulations, including those relating to the environment;
the risks associated with integrating businesses we acquire;
rapid technological changes; and
social, political, military and economic situations in foreign countries where we do business and the possibilities of civil disturbances, war, other armed conflicts or terrorist attacks.
We believe the items we have outlined above are important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in a forward-looking statement made in this report or elsewhere by us or on our behalf. We have discussed most of these factors in more detail elsewhere in this report. These factors are not necessarily all the factors that could affect us. Unpredictable or unanticipated factors we have not discussed in this report could also have material adverse effects on actual results of matters that are the subject of our forward-looking statements. We do not intend to update our description of important factors each time a potential important factor arises. We advise our security holders that they should (1) be aware that important factors we do not refer to above could affect the accuracy of our forward-looking statements and (2) use caution and common sense when considering our forward-looking statements.

Item 1A.Risk Factors.

We are subject to various risks and uncertainties in the course of our business. The following summarizes significant risks and uncertainties that may materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows and the market value of our securities. Investors in our company should consider these matters, in addition to the other information we have provided in this report and the documents we incorporate by reference.
We derive most of our revenue from companies in the offshore oil and gas industry, a historically cyclical industry with levels of activity that are significantly affected by the levels and volatility of oil and gas prices.

We derive most of our revenue from customers in the offshore oil and gas exploration, development and production industry. The offshore oil and gas industry is a historically cyclical industry characterized by significant changes in the levels of exploration and development activities. Oil and gas prices, and market expectations of potential changes in those prices, significantly affect the levels of those activities. Worldwide political, economic and military events have contributed to oil and gas price volatility and are likely to continue to do so in the future. Any prolonged reduction in the overall level of offshore oil and gas exploration and development activities, whether resulting from changes in oil and gas prices or otherwise, could materially and adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations in our segments within our Oilfield business. Some factors that have affected and are likely to continue affecting oil and gas prices and the level of demand for our services and products include the following:

worldwide demand for oil and gas;
general economic and business conditions and industry trends;
the ability of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, to set and maintain production levels;
the level of production by non-OPEC countries;
the ability of oil and gas companies to generate funds for capital expenditures;
domestic and foreign tax policy;
laws and governmental regulations that restrict exploration and development of oil and gas in various offshore jurisdictions;
technological changes;
the political environment of oil-producing regions;
the price and availability of alternative fuels; and
overall economic conditions.
Our operations could be adversely impacted by the effects of new regulations.
During 2010, the U.S. government established new regulations relating to the design of wells and testing of the integrity of wellbores, the use of drilling fluids, the functionality and testing of well control equipment, including blowout preventers, and

12


other safety and environmental regulations. In addition, the U.S. government is requiring that operators demonstrate their compliance with those regulations before commencing deepwater drilling operations. Changes in laws or regulations regarding offshore oil and gas exploration and development activities, the cost or availability of insurance and the impacts of these factors on decisions by customers or other industry participants could further reduce demand for our services, which would have a negative impact on our operations.

Our international operations involve additional risks not associated with domestic operations.

A significant portion of our revenue is attributable to operations in foreign countries. These activities accounted for approximately 66% of our consolidated revenue in 2013. Risks associated with our operations in foreign areas include risks of:

regional and global economic downturns;
disturbances or other risks that may limit or disrupt markets;
expropriation, confiscation or nationalization of assets;
renegotiation or nullification of existing contracts;
foreign exchange restrictions;
foreign currency fluctuations;
foreign taxation, including the application and interpretation of tax laws;
the inability to repatriate earnings or capital;
changing political conditions;
changing foreign and domestic monetary policies; and
social, political, military and economic situations in foreign areas where we do business and the possibilities of civil disturbances, war, other armed conflict, terrorist attacks or acts of piracy.
Additionally, in some jurisdictions we are subject to foreign governmental regulations favoring or requiring the awarding of contracts to local contractors or requiring foreign contractors to employ citizens of, or purchase supplies from, a particular jurisdiction. These regulations may adversely affect our ability to compete.
Our exposure to the risks we described above varies from country to country. In recent periods, political instability and civil unrest in Africa, particularly Nigeria, have been our greatest concerns. There is a risk that a continuation or worsening of these conditions could materially and adversely impact our future business, operations, financial condition and results of operations. Of our total consolidated revenue for 2013, we generated approximately 21% from our operations in Africa.

Foreign exchange risks and fluctuations may affect our profitability on certain projects.
We operate on a worldwide basis with substantial operations outside the U.S. that subject us to U.S. dollar translation and economic risks. In order to manage some of the risks associated with foreign currency exchange rates, we may enter into foreign currency derivative (hedging) instruments, especially when there is currency risk exposure that is not naturally mitigated via our contracts. However, these actions may not always eliminate all currency risk exposure, in particular for our long-term contracts. A disruption in the foreign currency markets, including the markets with respect to any particular currencies, could adversely affect our hedging instruments and subject us to additional currency risk exposure. Based on fluctuations in currency, the U.S. dollar value of our backlog may from time to time increase or decrease significantly. We do not enter into derivative instruments for trading or other speculative purposes. Our operational cash flows and cash balances, though predominately held in U.S. dollars, may consist of different currencies at various points in time in order to execute our contracts globally. Non-U.S. asset and liability balances are subject to currency fluctuations when measured period to period for financial reporting purposes in U.S. dollars.
Our backlog is subject to unexpected adjustments and cancellations and is, therefore, an uncertain indicator of our future revenues and earnings.
There can be no assurance that the revenues included in our backlog will be realized or, if realized, will result in profits. Because of project cancellations or potential changes in the scope or schedule of our customers' projects, we cannot predict with certainty when or if backlog will be realized. Material delays, suspensions, cancellations or payment defaults could materially affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
Reductions in our backlog due to cancellation by a customer or for other reasons would adversely affect, potentially to a material extent, the revenues and earnings we actually receive from contracts included in our backlog. Many of our ROV contracts have 30-day notice termination clauses. Some of the contracts in our backlog provide for cancellation fees in the event customers cancel projects. These cancellation fees usually provide for reimbursement of our out-of-pocket costs,

13


revenues for work performed prior to cancellation and a varying percentage of the profits we would have realized had the contract been completed. We typically have no contractual right upon cancellation to the total contract revenues as reflected in our backlog. If we experience significant project terminations, suspensions or scope adjustments to contracts reflected in our backlog, our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows may be adversely impacted.
A global financial crisis could impact our business and financial condition in ways that we currently cannot predict.
A recurrence of the credit crisis and related turmoil in the global financial system that occurred in 2008 and 2009 could have an impact on our business and our financial condition. In particular, the cost of capital increased substantially while the availability of funds from the capital markets diminished significantly. Although the capital markets have recovered, in a recurrence, our ability to access the capital markets in the future could be restricted or be available only on terms we do not consider favorable. Limited access to the capital markets could adversely impact our ability to take advantage of business opportunities or react to changing economic and business conditions and could adversely impact our ability to continue our growth strategy. Ultimately, we could be required to reduce our future capital expenditures substantially. Such a reduction could have a material adverse effect on our business and our consolidated financial condition, results of operations and cash flows. A recurrence of such a global financial crisis could have further impacts on our business that we currently cannot predict or anticipate.

A global financial crisis or economic recession could have an impact on our suppliers and our customers, causing them to fail to meet their obligations to us, which could have a material adverse effect on our revenue, income from operations and cash flows.

If one or more of the lenders under our revolving credit facility were to become unable or unwilling to perform their obligations under that facility, our borrowing capacity could be reduced. Our inability to borrow under our revolving credit facility could limit our ability to fund our future operations and growth.

In addition, we maintain our cash balances and short-term investments in accounts held by major banks and financial institutions located primarily in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia, and some of those accounts hold deposits that exceed available insurance. It is possible that one or more of the financial institutions in which we hold our cash and investments could become subject to bankruptcy, receivership or similar proceedings. As a result, we could be at risk of not being able to access material amounts of our cash, which could result in a temporary liquidity crisis that could impede our ability to fund operations.

Employee, agent or partner misconduct or our overall failure to comply with laws or regulations could weaken our ability to win contracts, which could result in reduced revenues and profits.
Misconduct, fraud, non-compliance with applicable laws and regulations, or other improper activities by one or more of our employees, agents or partners could have a significant negative impact on our business and reputation. Such misconduct could include the failure to comply with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA"), which prohibits companies and their intermediaries from making improper payments to non-U.S. officials, as well as the failure to comply with government procurement regulations, regulations on lobbying or similar activities, regulations pertaining to the internal controls over financial reporting and various other applicable laws or regulations, including the U.K. Bribery Act. We operate in some countries that international corruption monitoring groups have identified as having high levels of corruption. Our activities create the risk of unauthorized payments or offers of payments by one of our employees or agents that could be in violation of the FCPA or other applicable anti-corruption laws. The precautions we take to prevent and detect misconduct, fraud or non-compliance with applicable laws and regulations may not be effective, and we could face unknown risks or losses. Our failure to comply with applicable laws or regulations or acts of misconduct could subject us to fines, penalties or other sanctions, which could have a material adverse effect on our business and our consolidated financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

Our business strategy contemplates future acquisitions. Acquisitions of other businesses or assets present various risks and uncertainties.

We may pursue growth through the acquisition of businesses or assets that will enable us to broaden our product and service offerings and expand into new markets. We may be unable to implement this element of our growth strategy if we cannot identify suitable businesses or assets, reach agreement on potential strategic acquisitions on acceptable terms or for other reasons. Moreover, acquisitions involve various risks, including:

difficulties relating to the assimilation of personnel, services and systems of an acquired business and the assimilation of marketing and other operational capabilities;
challenges resulting from unanticipated changes in customer and other third-party relationships subsequent to acquisition;
additional financial and accounting challenges and complexities in areas such as tax planning, treasury management, financial reporting and internal controls;
assumption of liabilities of an acquired business, including liabilities that were unknown at the time the acquisition transaction was negotiated;
possible liabilities under the FCPA and other anti-corruption laws;
diversion of management's attention from day-to-day operations;
failure to realize anticipated benefits, such as cost savings and revenue enhancements;
potentially substantial transaction costs associated with acquisitions; and
potential impairment resulting from the overpayment for an acquisition.
Future acquisitions may require us to obtain additional equity or debt financing, which may not be available on attractive terms. Moreover, to the extent an acquisition transaction financed by non-equity consideration results in goodwill, it will reduce our tangible net worth, which might have an adverse effect on credit availability.
Additionally, an acquisition may bring us into businesses we have not previously conducted and expose us to additional business risks that are different from those we have previously experienced.
Our business strategy also includes development and commercialization of new technologies to support our growth. The development and commercialization of new technologies requires capital investment and involves various risks and uncertainties.
Our future growth will depend on our ability to continue to innovate by developing and commercializing new product and service offerings. Investments in new technologies involve varying degrees of uncertainties and risk. Commercial success depends on many factors, including the levels of innovation, the development costs and the availability of capital resources to fund those costs, the levels of competition from others developing similar or other competing technologies, our ability to obtain or maintain government permits or certifications, the effectiveness of production, distribution and marketing efforts, and the costs to customers to deploy and provide support for the new technologies. We may not achieve significant revenues from new product and service investments for a number of years, if at all. Moreover, new products and services may not be profitable, and, even if they are profitable, our operating margins from new products and services may not be as high as the margins we have experienced historically.
The loss of the services of one or more of our key personnel, or our failure to attract, assimilate and retain trained personnel in the future, could disrupt our operations and result in loss of revenues.
Our success depends on the continued active participation of our executive officers and key operating personnel. The unexpected loss of the services of any one of these persons could adversely affect our operations.
Our operations require the services of employees having the technical training and experience necessary to obtain the proper operational results. As a result, if we should suffer any material loss of personnel to competitors or be unable to employ additional or replacement personnel with the requisite level of training and experience to adequately operate our equipment, our operations could be adversely affected. A significant increase in the wages paid by other employers could result in a reduction in our workforce, increases in wage rates, or both.
We may not be able to compete successfully against current and future competitors.
Our businesses operate in highly competitive industry segments. Some of our competitors or potential competitors have greater financial or other resources than we have. Our operations may be adversely affected if our current competitors or new market entrants introduce new products or services with better features, performance, prices or other characteristics than those of our

15


products and services. This factor is significant to our segments' operations, particularly in the segments within our Oilfield business, where capital investment is critical to our ability to compete.

We rely on intellectual property law and confidentiality agreements to protect our intellectual property. We also rely on intellectual property we license from third parties. Our failure to protect our intellectual property rights, or our inability to obtain or renew licenses to use intellectual property of third parties, could adversely affect our business.
Our success depends, in part, on our ability to protect our proprietary information and other intellectual property. Our intellectual property could be challenged, invalidated, circumvented or rendered unenforceable. In addition, effective intellectual property protection may be limited or unavailable in some foreign countries where we operate.
Our failure to protect our intellectual property rights may result in the loss of valuable technologies or adversely affect our competitive business position. We rely significantly on proprietary technology, information, processes and know-how that are not subject to patent or copyright protection. We seek to protect this information through trade secret or confidentiality agreements with our employees, consultants, subcontractors or other parties, as well as through other security measures. These agreements and security measures may be inadequate to deter or prevent misappropriation of our confidential information. In the event of an infringement of our intellectual property rights, a breach of a confidentiality agreement or divulgence of proprietary information, we may not have adequate legal remedies to protect our intellectual property. Litigation to determine the scope of intellectual property rights, even if ultimately successful, could be costly and could divert management's attention away from other aspects of our business. In addition, our trade secrets may otherwise become known or be independently developed by competitors.
In some instances, we have augmented our technology base by licensing the proprietary intellectual property of third parties. In the future, we may not be able to obtain necessary licenses on commercially reasonable terms.
Our offshore oilfield operations involve a variety of operating hazards and risks that could cause losses.
Our operations are subject to the hazards inherent in the offshore oilfield business. These include blowouts, explosions, fires, collisions, capsizings and severe weather conditions. These hazards could result in personal injury and loss of life, severe damage to or destruction of property and equipment, pollution or environmental damage and suspension of operations. We may incur substantial liabilities or losses as a result of these hazards. While we maintain insurance protection against some of these risks, and seek to obtain indemnity agreements from our customers requiring the customers to hold us harmless from some of these risks, our insurance and contractual indemnity protection may not be sufficient or effective to protect us under all circumstances or against all risks. The occurrence of a significant event not fully insured or indemnified against or the failure of a customer to meet its indemnification obligations to us could materially and adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.
Laws and governmental regulations may add to our costs or adversely affect our operations.
Our business is affected by changes in public policy and by federal, state, local and foreign laws and regulations relating to the offshore oil and gas industry. Offshore oil and gas exploration and production operations are affected by tax, environmental, safety and other laws, by changes in those laws, application or interpretation of existing laws, and changes in related administrative regulations. It is also possible that these laws and regulations may in the future add significantly to our operating costs or those of our customers or otherwise directly or indirectly affect our operations.

Environmental laws and regulations can increase our costs, and our failure to comply with those laws and regulations can expose us to significant liabilities.

Risks of substantial costs and liabilities related to environmental compliance issues are inherent in our operations. Our operations are subject to extensive federal, state, local and foreign laws and regulations relating to the generation, storage, handling, emission, transportation and discharge of materials into the environment. Permits are required for the operation of various facilities, and those permits are subject to revocation, modification and renewal. Governmental authorities have the power to enforce compliance with their regulations, and violations are subject to fines, injunctions or both. In some cases, those governmental requirements can impose liability for the entire cost of cleanup on any responsible party without regard to negligence or fault and impose liability on us for the conduct of or conditions others have caused, or for our acts that complied with all applicable requirements when we performed them. It is possible that other developments, such as stricter environmental laws and regulations, and claims for damages to property or persons resulting from our operations, would result in substantial costs and liabilities. Our insurance policies and the contractual indemnity protection we seek to obtain from our

16


customers may not be sufficient or effective to protect us under all circumstances or against all risks involving compliance with environmental laws and regulations.

Recently adopted regulations related to “conflict minerals” could adversely impact our business.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 contains provisions to improve transparency and accountability concerning the supply of certain minerals, known as conflict minerals, originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries (collectively, the “Covered Countries”). The term “conflict minerals” encompasses tantalum, tin, tungsten (and their ores) and gold. These minerals can be found in a vast array of products, including ROVs, umbilicals and other products we manufacture.

In August 2012, pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC adopted new annual disclosure and reporting requirements applicable to any company that files periodic public reports with the SEC, if any conflict minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of a product manufactured, or contracted to be manufactured, by that company. These new requirements require us to conduct reasonable country-of-origin inquiries to determine if we know or have reason to believe that any conflict minerals necessary to the functionality or production of our manufactured products may have originated from any of the Covered Countries. If we are not able to determine that such conflict minerals did not originate from any of the Covered Countries or conclude that there is no reason to believe that such conflict minerals may have originated in any of the Covered Countries, we would be required to perform supply chain due diligence on members of our supply chain to determine, among other things, whether such conflict minerals financed or benefited armed groups. New annual reporting requirements, requiring us to describe our reasonable country-of-origin inquiries, our due diligence measures, the results of those activities and our related determinations, will become applicable beginning in May 2014.

Because we have a highly complex, multi-layered supply chain, we may incur significant costs to comply with these new requirements. In addition, the implementation of these requirements could adversely affect the sourcing, supply and pricing of materials, including components, used in our products. We can provide no assurance that our suppliers (or suppliers to our suppliers) will be able or willing to provide all requested information or to take other steps necessary to ensure that no conflict minerals financing or benefiting armed groups are included in materials or components supplied to us for our manufacturing purposes. As there may be only a limited number of suppliers offering materials or components certified as “conflict free,” we cannot be sure that we will be able to obtain necessary materials or components from those suppliers in sufficient quantities or at competitive prices. We may face reputational challenges if we determine that certain of our products contain minerals not determined to be conflict free or if we are unable to sufficiently verify the origins for all conflict minerals necessary to the functionality or production of our manufactured products through the procedures we may implement. Also, we may encounter challenges to satisfy customers that may require all of the components of products purchased by them to be certified as conflict free. If we are not able to meet customer certification requirements, customers may choose to disqualify us as a supplier. In addition, since the applicability of the new conflict minerals requirements is limited to companies that file periodic reports with the SEC, not all of our competitors will need to comply with these requirements unless they are imposed by customers. As a result, those competitors may have cost and other advantages over us.
Our internal controls may not be sufficient to achieve all stated goals and objectives.
Our internal controls and procedures were developed through a process in which our management applied its judgment in assessing the costs and benefits of such controls and procedures, which, by their nature, can provide only reasonable assurance regarding the control objectives. The design of any system of internal controls and procedures is based, in part, on various assumptions about the likelihood of future events. We cannot assure that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions, regardless of how remote.
The use of estimates could result in future adjustments to our assets, liabilities and results of operations.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires that our management make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expense during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
We may issue preferred stock whose terms could adversely affect the voting power or value of our common stock.
Our certificate of incorporation authorizes us to issue, without the approval of our shareholders, one or more classes or series of preferred stock having such preferences, powers and relative, participating, optional and other rights, including preferences over our common stock respecting dividends and distributions, as our board of directors may determine. The terms of one or more classes or series of preferred stock could adversely impact the voting power or value of our common stock. For example,

17


we might grant holders of preferred stock the right to elect some number of our directors in all events or on the happening of specified events or the right to veto specified transactions. Similarly, the repurchase or redemption rights or liquidation preferences we might assign to holders of preferred stock could affect the residual value of the common stock.

Provisions in our corporate documents and Delaware law could delay or prevent a change in control of our company, even if that change would be beneficial to our shareholders.

The existence of some provisions in our corporate documents and Delaware law could delay or prevent a change in control of our company, even if that change would be beneficial to our shareholders. Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws contain provisions that may make acquiring control of our company difficult, including:

provisions relating to the classification, nomination and removal of our directors;
provisions regulating the ability of our shareholders to bring matters for action at annual meetings of our shareholders;
provisions requiring the approval of the holders of at least 80% of our voting stock for a broad range of business combination transactions with related persons; and
the authorization given to our board of directors to issue and set the terms of preferred stock.
In addition, the Delaware General Corporation Law imposes restrictions on mergers and other business combinations between us and any holder of 15% or more of our outstanding common stock.

Item 2.
Properties.

We maintain office, shop and yard facilities in various parts of the world to support our operations. We consider these facilities, which we describe below, to be suitable for their intended use. In these locations, we typically own or lease office facilities for our administrative and engineering staff, shops equipped for fabrication, testing, repair and maintenance activities and warehouses and yard areas for storage and mobilization of equipment to work sites. All sites are available to support any of our business segments as the need arises. The groupings that follow associate our significant offices with the primary business segment they serve.

Oilfield. In general, our Oilfield business segments share facilities. Our location in Morgan City, Louisiana is the largest of these facilities and consists of ROV manufacturing and training facilities, vessel docking facilities, open and covered warehouse space and offices. The Morgan City facilities primarily support operations in the United States. We have regional support offices for our North Sea, Africa, Brazil and Southeast Asia operations in: Aberdeen, Scotland; Stavanger and Bergen, Norway; Dubai, U.A.E.; Rio de Janeiro and Macaé, Brazil; Luanda, Angola; Perth and Melbourne, Australia; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and Singapore. We also have operational bases in various other locations.

Item 7.
Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

Certain statements in this annual report on Form 10-K, including, without limitation, statements regarding the following matters are forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995:

our business strategy;
our plans for future operations;
industry conditions;
seasonality;
our expectations about 2014 earnings per share and segment operating results, and the factors underlying those expectations, including our expectations about demand for our deepwater oilfield services and products as a result of the factors we specify in "Overview" and "Results of Operations" below;
projections relating to floating rigs to be placed in service and subsea tree orders;
the adequacy of our liquidity and capital resources to support our operations and internally generated growth initiatives;
our projected capital expenditures for 2014;
our plans to add ROVs to our fleet;
our intentions relating to the subsea support vessel scheduled for delivery in 2016;
our belief that our goodwill will not be impaired during 2014;
the adequacy of our accruals for uninsured expected liabilities from workers' compensation, maritime employer's liability and general liability claims;
our belief that our total unrecognized tax benefits will not significantly increase or decrease in the next 12 months;
our anticipated tax rates and underlying assumptions;
our expectations about the cash flows from our investment in Medusa Spar LLC, and the factors underlying those expectations;
our expectations regarding shares repurchased under our share repurchase plan;
our backlog; and
our expectations regarding the effect of inflation in the near future.
These forward-looking statements are subject to various risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including those we refer to under the headings "CAUTIONARY STATEMENT CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS" and "Risk Factors" in Part I of this report. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, because of the inherent limitations in the forecasting process, as well as the relatively volatile nature of the industries in which we operate, we can give no assurance that those expectations will prove to have been correct. Accordingly, evaluation of our future prospects must be made with caution when relying on forward-looking information.

During 2013, we generated approximately 91% of our revenue, and 96% of our operating income before Unallocated Expenses, from services and products we provided to the oil and gas industry. In 2013, our revenue increased by 18%, with the largest percentage increase occurring in our Subsea Projects segment, which increased 34%, primarily on increased deepwater vessel service activity.


22


The $372 million consolidated net income we earned in 2013 was the highest in our history. The $82 million increase from 2012 net income was attributable to higher profit contributions from all of our operating segments:

our Subsea Products segment, which had $60 million more operating income on $199 million more revenue;
our ROV segment, which had $33 million more operating income on $128 million more revenue;
our Subsea Projects segment, which had $30 million more operating income on $130 million more revenue;
our Asset Integrity segment, which had $10 million more operating income on $47 million more revenue; and
our Advanced Technologies segment, which had $4 million more operating income on $1 million more revenue.

In 2013, we invested in the following major capital projects:

additions of and upgrades to our work-class ROVs; and
expansion in our Subsea Products segment, including the addition of more umbilical plant capabilities and an expansion of our rental and service tooling suite and work packages.

We expect our 2014 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $3.90 to $4.10, as compared to $3.42 in 2013. We anticipate continued global demand growth to support deepwater drilling, field development, and inspection, maintenance and repair activities. Compared to 2013, in 2014 we are forecasting an increase in all of our oilfield operating business segments, including:

ROVs on greater service demand to support drilling and vessel-based projects;
Subsea Products on higher demand for all our major product lines;
Subsea Projects on a growth in deepwater service activity; and
Asset Integrity on increased demand for our services.
We use our ROVs to provide drilling support, vessel-based inspection, maintenance and repair, subsea hardware installation, construction, and pipeline inspection services to customers in the oil and gas industry. The largest percentage of our ROVs has historically been used to provide drill support services. Therefore, the number of floating drilling rigs on hire is a leading market indicator for this business. The following table shows average floating rigs under contract and our ROV utilization.

Demand for floating rigs is our primary driver of future growth prospects. According to industry data published by IHS Petrodata, at the end of 2013, there were 314 floating drilling rigs in the world, with 282 of the rigs under contract. Of the 282 rigs under contract, 213 are contracted through 2014. One hundred two additional floating rigs were on order, and 60 of these 102 have been contracted long-term. We estimate approximately 29 floating rigs will be placed in service during 2014, and we have ROV contracts on 16 of those. Competitors have the ROV contracts on three rigs, leaving 10 contract opportunities.
In addition to floating rig demand, subsea tree completions are another leading indicator of the strength of the deepwater market and the primary demand driver for our Subsea Products lines. According to industry data published by Quest Offshore Resources, Inc., the global market for subsea tree orders is expected to increase approximately 65% in the 2013-2017 time period compared to the previous five years. Additionally, Quest projects that subsea tree installations during the same time period will increase approximately 50% compared to the previous five-year period, and the installed subsea completion base will have a net increase of approximately 1,400 trees, or 35%.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
We have based the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations on our consolidated financial statements, which we have prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These principles require us to make various estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expense during the periods we present. We base our estimates on historical experience, available information and other assumptions we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates; however, our actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The following discussion summarizes the accounting policies we believe (1) require our management's most difficult, subjective or complex judgments and (2) are the most critical to our reporting of results of operations and financial position.

23


Revenue Recognition. We recognize our revenue according to the type of contract involved. On a daily basis, we recognize revenue under contracts that provide for specific time, material and equipment charges, which we bill periodically, ranging from weekly to monthly.

We account for significant fixed-price contracts, which we enter into mainly in our Subsea Products segment, and occasionally in our Subsea Projects and Advanced Technologies segments, using the percentage-of-completion method. In 2013, we accounted for 12% of our revenue using the percentage-of-completion method. In determining whether a contract should be accounted for using the percentage-of-completion method, we consider whether:

the customer provides specifications for the construction of facilities or production of goods or for the provision of related services;
we can reasonably estimate our progress towards completion and our costs;
the contract includes provisions as to the enforceable rights regarding the goods or services to be provided, consideration to be received and the manner and terms of payment;
the customer can be expected to satisfy its obligations under the contract; and
we can be expected to perform our contractual obligations.
Under the percentage-of-completion method, we recognize estimated contract revenue based on costs incurred to date as a percentage of total estimated costs. Changes in the expected cost of materials and labor, productivity, scheduling and other factors affect the total estimated costs. Additionally, external factors, including weather or other factors outside of our control, may also affect the progress and estimated cost of a project's completion and, therefore, the timing of income and revenue recognition. We routinely review estimates related to our contracts and reflect revisions to profitability in earnings immediately. If a current estimate of total contract cost indicates an ultimate loss on a contract, we recognize the projected loss in full when we determine it. In prior years, we have recorded adjustments to earnings as a result of revisions to contract estimates. Although we are continually striving to accurately estimate our contract costs and profitability, adjustments to overall contract costs could be significant in future periods.
We recognize the remainder of our revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, price is fixed or determinable and collection is reasonably assured.
Long-lived Assets. We evaluate our property and equipment for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amounts may not be appropriate. We base these evaluations on a comparison of the assets' carrying values to forecasts of undiscounted cash flows associated with the assets or quoted market prices. If an impairment has occurred, we recognize a loss for the difference between the carrying amount and the fair value of the asset. Our expectations regarding future sales and undiscounted cash flows are highly subjective, cover extended periods of time and depend on a number of factors outside our control, such as changes in general economic conditions, laws and regulations. Accordingly, these expectations could differ significantly from year to year.
We charge the costs of repair and maintenance of property and equipment to operations as incurred, while we capitalize the costs of improvements that extend asset lives or functionality.
Goodwill. We account for business combinations using the acquisition method of accounting, with the acquisition price being allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their fair market values at the date of acquisition. In September 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued an update regarding goodwill impairment testing. Under the update, an entity has the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events or circumstances leads to a determination that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If, after assessing the totality of events or circumstances, an entity determines it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit exceeds its carrying amount, performing the two-step impairment test is unnecessary. However, if an entity concludes otherwise, then it is required to perform the first step of the two-step impairment test. This update was effective for us January 1, 2012, and earlier adoption was permitted. We began applying this update in 2011. The provisions of the update have not had a material effect on our financial position or results of operations. Prior to 2011, we tested the goodwill attributable to each of our reporting units for impairment annually, or more frequently whenever events or changes in circumstances indicated that the carrying amounts may not have been appropriate. We estimated fair value of the reporting units using both an income approach, which considers a discounted cash flow model, and a market approach. For reporting units with significant goodwill, we do not believe our goodwill will be impaired during 2014.
Loss Contingencies. We self-insure for workers' compensation, maritime employer's liability and comprehensive general liability claims to levels we consider financially prudent, and beyond the self-insurance level of exposure we carry insurance, which can be by occurrence or in the aggregate. We determine the level of accruals for claims exposure by reviewing our historical experience and current year claim activity. We do not record accruals on a present-value basis. We review larger

24


claims with insurance adjusters and establish specific reserves for known liabilities. We establish an additional reserve for incidents incurred but not reported to us for each year using our estimates and based on prior experience. We believe we have established adequate accruals for uninsured expected liabilities arising from those obligations. However, it is possible that future earnings could be affected by changes in our estimates relating to these matters.
We are involved in various claims and actions against us, most of which are covered by insurance. We believe that our ultimate liability, if any, that may result from those claims and actions will not materially affect our financial position, cash flows or results of operations.

Income Taxes. Our tax provisions are based on our expected taxable income, statutory rates and tax-planning opportunities available to us in the various jurisdictions in which we operate. Determination of taxable income in any jurisdiction requires the interpretation of the related tax laws. We are at risk that a taxing authority's final determination of our tax liabilities may differ from our interpretation. Our effective tax rate may fluctuate from year to year as our operations are conducted in different taxing jurisdictions, the amount of pre-tax income fluctuates and our estimates regarding the realizability of items such as foreign tax credits may change. In 2013, 2012 and 2011, we recorded reductions of income tax expense of $0.7 million, $3.0 million and $0.9 million, respectively, resulting from a combination of expiring statutes of limitations and the resolution of uncertain tax positions related to certain tax liabilities we recorded in prior years. Current income tax expense represents either nonresident withholding taxes or the liabilities expected to be reflected on our income tax returns for the current year, while the net deferred income tax expense or benefit represents the change in the balance of deferred tax assets or liabilities as reported on our balance sheet.
We establish valuation allowances to reduce deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized in the future. We currently have no valuation allowances. While we have considered estimated future taxable income and ongoing prudent and feasible tax-planning strategies in assessing the need for the valuation allowances, changes in these estimates and assumptions, as well as changes in tax laws, could require us to provide for valuation allowances for our deferred tax assets. These provisions for valuation allowances would impact our income tax provision in the period in which such adjustments are identified and recorded.

We recognize the benefit for a tax position if the benefit is more likely than not to be sustainable upon audit by the applicable taxing authority. If this threshold is met, the tax benefit is then measured and recognized at the largest amount that is greater than 50% likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement.
We account for any applicable interest and penalties on uncertain tax positions as a component of our provision for income taxes on our financial statements. We increased our provision for income taxes in 2013 by $1.7 million for penalties and interest for uncertain tax positions, which brought our total liabilities for penalties and interest on uncertain tax positions to $3.3 million on our balance sheet at December 31, 2013. Including associated foreign tax credits and penalties and interest, we have accrued a net total of $8.6 million in the caption "other long-term liabilities" on our balance sheet at December 31, 2013 for unrecognized tax benefits. All additions or reductions to those liabilities affect our effective income tax rate in the periods of change.
We do not believe that the total of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly increase or decrease in the next 12 months.
For a summary of our major accounting policies and a discussion of recently adopted accounting standards, please see Note 1 to our Consolidated Financial Statements.
Liquidity and Capital Resources

We consider our liquidity and capital resources adequate to support our operations and growth initiatives. At
December 31, 2013, we had working capital of $706 million, including cash and cash equivalents of $91 million. Additionally, we had $300 million available through a revolving credit facility under a credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement"), which is scheduled to expire on January 6, 2017. Our maximum outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement during 2013 were $120 million, and our total interest costs, including commitment fees, were $1.3 million.

The Credit Agreement provides for a five-year, $300 million revolving credit facility. Subject to certain conditions, the aggregate commitments under the facility may be increased by up to $200 million by obtaining additional commitments from existing and/or new lenders. Borrowings under the facility may be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. Revolving borrowings under the facility bear interest at an adjusted base rate or the eurodollar Rate (as defined in the agreement), at our option, plus an applicable margin. Depending on our debt to capitalization ratio, the applicable margin varies (1) in the case of adjusted base rate advances, from 0.125% to 0.750% and (2) in the case of eurodollar advances, from 1.125% to 1.750%.

25



The Credit Agreement contains various covenants that we believe are customary for agreements of this nature, including, but not limited to, restrictions on the ability of each of our restricted subsidiaries to incur unsecured debt, as well as restrictions on our ability and the ability of each of our restricted subsidiaries to incur secured debt, grant liens, make certain investments, make distributions, merge or consolidate, sell assets, enter into transactions with affiliates and enter into certain restrictive agreements. We are also subject to an interest coverage ratio and a debt to capitalization ratio. The Credit Agreement includes customary events and consequences of default.

Our capital expenditures, including business acquisitions, for 2013, 2012 and 2011 were $394 million, $310 million and $527 million, respectively. Our capital expenditures in 2013 included $226 million for upgrading and expanding our ROV fleet and $103 million in our Subsea Products segment, principally to increase the capabilities of our umbilical plants in the U.S. and Scotland and to expand our rental and service tooling hardware offerings. Our capital expenditures in 2012 included $198 million for expanding and upgrading our ROV fleet. In 2012, we also invested $68 million in our Subsea Products business, largely to increase the capabilities of our umbilical plants in Brazil and Scotland and to expand our suite of subsea rental and service tooling. Capital expenditures in 2011 included expenditures for: the acquisition of AGR Field Operations Holdings AS and subsidiaries for $220 million, which are in our Asset Integrity and Subsea Projects segments; Norse Cutting and Abandonment AS for $50 million, which is in our Subsea Products segment; additions and upgrades to our ROV fleet; and conversion of the Ocean Patriot to a dynamically positioned saturation diving vessel and completion of its saturation diving system in our Subsea Projects segment.

For 2014, we expect our capital expenditures to be approximately $450 million, exclusive of business acquisitions. This estimate includes $225 million in our ROV segment for the addition of new vehicles and vehicle upgrades, $120 million for enhancing our Subsea Products capabilities, and $65 million in our Subsea Projects segment, primarily for construction progress payments on a new subsea support vessel scheduled for delivery in 2016.
Our capital expenditures during 2013, 2012 and 2011 included $226 million, $198 million and $136 million, respectively, in our ROV segment, principally for additions and upgrades to our ROV fleet to expand the fleet and replace units we retired and for facilities infrastructure to support our growing ROV fleet size. We plan to continue adding ROVs at levels we determine appropriate to meet market opportunities as they arise. We added 26, 37 and 24 ROVs to our fleet and retired 10, 15 and 16 units during 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and transferred one to our Advanced Technologies segment in each of 2013 and 2011, resulting in a total of 304 work-class systems in the fleet at December 31, 2013.
In 2012, we rechartered a deepwater vessel, the Ocean Intervention III, for two years, with extension options for up to three additional years, and which we have extended to January 2015. We have also chartered an additional larger deepwater vessel, the Olympic Intervention IV, for an initial term of five years, which began in the third quarter of 2008, and which we have extended to July 2016. We outfitted each of these larger deepwater vessels with two of our high-specification work-class ROVs, and we have utilized these vessels to perform subsea hardware installation and inspection, maintenance and repair projects, and to conduct well intervention services in the ultra-deep waters of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. In 2012, we moved the Ocean Intervention III to Angola and chartered the Bourbon Oceanteam 101 to work on a three-year field support contract. The customer for this contract has the option for us to provide a third vessel and has options to extend the contract for two additional one-year periods. In March 2013, we commenced a five-year charter for a Jones Act-compliant multi-service support vessel, which we have been renamed the Ocean Alliance, that we are using in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. We have outfitted the vessel with two of our high-specification work-class ROVs. In December 2013, we commenced a three-year charter for the Normand Flower, a multi-service subsea marine support vessel. We have made modifications to the vessel, including reconfiguration to accommodate two of our high-specification work-class ROVs. We anticipate we will use the vessel in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico to perform inspection, maintenance and repair projects and hardware installations. We have options to extend the charter for up to three additional years.
During the third quarter of 2013, we signed an agreement with a shipyard for the construction of a subsea support vessel. We expect delivery of that vessel by the end of the first quarter of 2016. Our cash payments for the vessel will be spread over the construction period. We intend for the vessel to be U.S.-flagged and documented with a coastwise endorsement by the U.S. Coast Guard. It is expected to have an overall length of 353 feet, a Class 2 dynamic positioning system, accommodations for 110 personnel, a helideck, a 250 ton active heave-compensated crane, and a working moonpool. We expect to outfit the vessel with two of our high specification work-class ROVs. The vessel will also be equipped with a satellite communications system capable of transmitting streaming video for real-time work observation by shore personnel. We anticipate the vessel will be used to augment our ability to provide subsea intervention services in the ultra-deep waters of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. These services are required to perform inspection, maintenance, and repair projects and hardware installations.

Our principal source of cash from operating activities is our net income, adjusted for the non-cash expenses of depreciation and amortization, deferred income taxes and noncash compensation under our restricted stock plans. Our $529 million, $439 million and $289 million of cash provided from operating activities in 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively, were affected by cash increases/(decreases) of $(102) million, $(94) million and $(100) million, respectively, of changes in accounts receivable, $(111) million, $(76) million and $(11) million , respectively, of changes in inventory and $128 million, $87 million and $9 million, respectively, in changes in accounts payable and accrued liabilities. In 2013, the increases in accounts receivable and accounts payable and accrued liabilities reflect the increase in our revenue in 2013. The increase in inventory in 2013 is consistent with the increase in our backlog over 2012. In 2012, the increase in accounts receivable was largely attributable to increased revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase in inventory in 2012 was principally in our Subsea Products and ROV segments: Subsea Products in preparation for production related to the higher backlog levels at December 31, 2012 as compared to those at December 31, 2011; and ROV in anticipation of adding additional units. In 2012, the changes in accounts payable and accrued expenses related to higher accruals for payroll and project costs and an increase in progress payments received from customers. In 2011, the increase in accounts receivable was largely attributable to increased revenue in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to the corresponding quarter of 2010, and the mix of revenue with a higher percentage of our 2011 revenue coming from our international operations.
In 2013, we used a net of $378 million in investing activities, with $394 million used to make the capital expenditures and business acquisitions described above. In 2012, we used $306 million in investing activities, with $310 million used to make the capital expenditures and business acquisitions described above. In 2011, we used $483 million in investing activities, with $527 million used to make the capital expenditures and business acquisitions described above, while we received $44 million from the sales of assets, primarily our offshore production system, the Ocean Legend.
In 2013, we used $180 million in financing activities, principally for repayment against our revolving credit facility of $94 million and the payment of cash dividends of $91 million. In 2012, we used $118 million in financing activities, principally for the payment of cash dividends of $75 million, repayment against our revolving credit facility of $26 million and common stock share repurchases of $19 million. In 2011, we generated $55 million in financing activities. We borrowed $120 million under our revolving credit facility, and we used $49 million for the payment of cash dividends and $17 million for common stock share repurchases.
In February 2010, our Board of Directors approved a plan to repurchase up to 12,000,000 shares of our common stock. The timing and amount of any repurchases will be determined by our management. We expect that any shares repurchased under the plan will be held as treasury stock for future use. The plan does not obligate us to repurchase any particular number of shares. Through December 31, 2013, we repurchased 3,100,000 shares at a cost of $86 million under the plan. As of December 31, 2013, we retained 2,636,644 shares we had repurchased. We expect that shares we reissue will be primarily in connection with our stock-based compensation plans.
Because of our significant foreign operations, we are exposed to currency fluctuations and exchange rate risks. We generally minimize these risks primarily through matching, to the extent possible, revenue and expense in the various currencies in which we operate. Cumulative translation adjustments as of December 31, 2013 relate primarily to our net investments in, including long-term loans to, our foreign subsidiaries. A stronger U.S. dollar against the U.K. pound sterling and the Norwegian kroner would result in lower operating income. See Item 7A – "Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk."

In response to continued increasing demand to support deepwater drilling and vessel-based inspection, maintenance and repair ("IMR") and installation work, we have continued to build new ROVs. These new vehicles are designed for use around the world in water depths of 10,000 feet or more. We added 26, 37 and 24 ROVs in 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively, while retiring 41 units over the three-year period and transferring two to our Advanced Technologies segment over that period. We have grown our ROV fleet size to 304 at December 31, 2013 from 289 at December 31, 2012 and 267 at December 31, 2011. We plan to continue adding ROVs at levels we determine appropriate to meet market opportunities.


28


For 2013, our ROV revenue and operating income improved over 2012 from:

higher demand:    
in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico;
offshore Africa;
offshore India;
offshore Canada; and
offshore Australia; and
expansion of our fleet to meet the increased demand.

In 2013, our ROV general and administrative expenses included a charge of $3.3 million to record an allowance for doubtful accounts related to a customer in Brazil that filed for restructuring under Brazilian bankruptcy law.

For 2012, our ROV revenue and operating income improved over 2011 from (1) higher demand, particularly offshore Africa and in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico for the provision of drill support and vessel-based services, and (2) the expansion of our fleet to meet the increased demand.

We anticipate ROV operating income to increase in 2014 as a result of an increase in days on hire, with an operating margin in the range of 29% to 30%. We anticipate adding 30 to 35 vehicles in 2014, which should add to our days available and days on hire over 2013. We currently expect to retire, on average, 4% to 5% of our fleet on an annual basis.

Subsea Products revenue, operating income and margin were higher in 2013 than in 2012 from increased demand across our major product lines, principally for subsea hardware used in offshore field developments and for clamp connector systems. Subsea Products revenue and operating income for 2012 increased over 2011 from higher demand for tooling to support deepwater drilling operations and IMR projects. Tooling to support drilling includes ROV accumulator skids to perform tests on blowout preventers ("BOPs"), BOP panels and well-containment spill-response hardware. Tooling to support IMR projects featured use of our flowline remediation system to eliminate hydrates in large diameter or long offset flowlines, and our acid injection system to perform well stimulations. Our margin was higher as umbilical sales, which typically have a lower margin than the rest of our Subsea Products sales, represented a smaller percentage of total segment revenue.
We anticipate our Subsea Products segment operating income in 2014 to be higher than in 2013, as we expect higher demand for all our major product lines. We expect our margin to be in the range of 19% to 21%, which would be lower than that of 2013, due to product mix. Our Subsea Products backlog was $906 million at December 31, 2013, approximately 33% higher than it was at December 31, 2012.
Our 2013 revenue and operating income for Subsea Projects was higher than in 2012 on increased deepwater vessel service activity. Our 2012 revenue and operating income for Subsea Projects was higher than in 2011 on an international expansion of our field service work and higher demand in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. In 2011, we recorded a gain of $19.6 million on the sale of the Ocean Legend, a mobile offshore production system.
We anticipate our 2014 operating income for Subsea Projects to be higher than in 2013 on growth in deepwater service activity. We expect our 2014 Subsea Projects operating margin to improve slightly over 2013.
Our Asset Integrity segment revenue and operating income were higher in 2013 over 2012 due to high demand in most of our geographic areas, particularly Africa and Australia. Our Asset Integrity segment revenue and operating income were higher in 2012 as compared to 2011 on higher service sales in most of the geographic areas we serve, and particularly in Norway due to our acquisition in December 2011. We anticipate our 2014 operating income for Asset Integrity to be higher than in 2013 on increased service sales and a slight improvement in operating margin.

Our Advanced Technologies operating income in 2013 was higher than that of 2012 due to increases in work and operational efficiency on theme park projects and an increase in vessel maintenance and repair work for the U.S. Navy. Our Advanced Technologies operating income in 2012 was higher than that of 2011 on higher engineering and vessel maintenance work for the U.S. Navy and higher levels of theme park projects. We anticipate our Advanced Technologies 2014 operating income to approximate that of 2013.
Unallocated Expenses. Our unallocated expenses, i.e., those not associated with a specific business segment, within gross margin consist of expenses related to our incentive and deferred compensation plans, including restricted stock and bonuses, as well as other general expenses. Our unallocated expenses within operating income consist of those within gross margin plus general and administrative expenses related to corporate functions.

Interest expense decreased in 2013 compared to 2012 on decreasing debt levels as we paid down our debt to zero during 2013. Interest expense increased in 2012 compared to 2011 from higher debt levels after we increased our borrowings to fund an acquisition in December 2011. We did not capitalize any interest in 2013, 2012 or 2011.
We record results from our 50% investment in Medusa Spar LLC using the equity method. Medusa Spar LLC owns 75% of a production spar in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and earns its revenue from fees charged on production processed through the facility. Throughput declined in each of 2013 and 2012 from the immediately preceding year due to normal well production decline.
We expect Medusa Spar LLC revenue and our equity share of its earnings will decline in 2014 due to normal well production decline. Medusa Spar LLC's revenue could be increased if the operator of the producing wells receives regulatory approval to start producing from other zones in the existing wells, which are anticipated to have higher flow rates than the currently-producing zones, or is able to connect more wells to the spar.
Included in other income (expenses), net are foreign currency transaction gains/(losses) of $0.1 million, $(5.4) million and $(0.4) million for 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
Our effective tax rate, including foreign, state and local taxes, was 31.5%, 31.5%, and 30.3% for 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively, which included a combination of expiring statutes of limitations and the resolution of uncertain tax positions of $0.7 million, $3.0 million and $0.9 million, respectively, related to certain liabilities for uncertain tax positions we recorded in prior years. The primary difference between our 2012 and 2011 effective tax rates and the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% reflects our intent to indefinitely reinvest in certain of our international operations. Therefore, we are no longer providing for U.S. taxes on a portion of our foreign earnings. The effective tax rate of 30.3% in our financial statements for 2011 is a result of our effective rate of 31.5% adjusted by $4.9 million of additional tax benefits, primarily attributable to amending prior years' U.S. federal income tax returns to reflect a broader interpretation of our pre-tax income eligible for certain deductions

30


allowable for oil and gas construction activities, and tax effecting the $19.6 million gain on the sale of the Ocean Legend at the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35%. We anticipate our effective tax rate in 2014 will be approximately 31.3%.

At December 31, 2013, we had outstanding purchase order commitments totaling $479 million, including approximately $100 million for the construction of a new subsea support vessel scheduled for delivery in 2016, $49 million for ROV launch and recovery system equipment and $29 million for specialized steel tubes to be used in our manufacturing of steel tube umbilicals. We have ordered the specialized steel tubes in advance to meet expected sales commitments. The winches have been ordered for new ROVs and for anticipated replacements due to normal wear and tear. Should we decide not to accept delivery of the steel tubes, we would incur cancellation charges of at least 10% of the amount canceled.

In 2001, we entered into an agreement with our Chairman of the Board of Directors (the "Chairman") who was also then our Chief Executive Officer. That agreement was amended in 2006 and in 2008. Pursuant to the amended agreement, the Chairman relinquished his position as Chief Executive Officer in May 2006 and began his post-employment service period on December 31, 2006, which continued through August 15, 2011, during which service period the Chairman, acting as an independent contractor, agreed to serve as nonexecutive Chairman of our Board of Directors. The agreement provides the Chairman with post-employment benefits for ten years following August 15, 2011. The agreement also provides for medical coverage on an after-tax basis to the Chairman, his spouse and children for their lives. We recognized the net present value of the post-employment benefits over the expected service period. Our total accrued liabilities, current and long-term, under this post-employment benefit were $6.3 million and $6.8 million at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
Effects of Inflation and Changing Prices
Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, using historical U.S. dollar accounting, or historical cost. Statements based on historical cost, however, do not adequately reflect the cumulative effect of increasing costs and changes in the purchasing power of the dollar, especially during times of significant and continued inflation.
In order to minimize the negative impact of inflation on our operations, we attempt to cover the increased cost of anticipated changes in labor, material and service costs, either through an estimate of those changes, which we reflect in the original price, or through price escalation clauses in our contracts. Inflation has not had a material effect on our revenue or income from operations in the past three years, and no such effect is expected in the near future.

Item 7A.
Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
We are currently exposed to certain market risks arising from transactions we have entered into in the normal course of business. These risks relate to interest rate changes and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. We do not believe these risks are material. We have not entered into any market risk sensitive instruments for speculative or trading purposes. We currently have no outstanding hedges or similar instruments. We typically manage our exposure to interest rate changes through the use of a combination of fixed- and floating-rate debt. See Note 5 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for a description of our revolving credit facility and interest rates on our borrowings. We believe significant interest rate changes would not have a material near-term impact on our future earnings or cash flows.

Because we operate in various oil and gas exploration and production regions in the world, we conduct a portion of our business in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. The functional currency for several of our international operations is the applicable local currency. A stronger U.S. dollar against the U.K. pound sterling and the Norwegian kroner would result in lower operating income. We manage our exposure to changes in foreign exchange rates principally through arranging compensation in U.S. dollars or freely convertible currency and, to the extent possible, by limiting compensation received in other currencies to amounts necessary to meet obligations denominated in those currencies. We use the exchange rates in effect as of the balance sheet date to translate assets and liabilities as to which the functional currency is the local currency, resulting in translation adjustments that we reflect as accumulated other comprehensive income or loss in the shareholders' equity section of our Consolidated Balance Sheets. We recorded adjustments of $(71.3) million, $44.8 million and $(18.4) million to our equity accounts in 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Negative adjustments reflect the net impact of the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against various foreign currencies for locations where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. Conversely, positive adjustments reflect the effect of a weakening dollar.
We recorded foreign currency transaction gains (losses) of $0.1 million, $(5.4) million and $(0.4) million that are included in Other income (expense), net in our Consolidated Income Statements in 2013, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Controls and Procedures.
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
In accordance with Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as that term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of December 31, 2013 to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms.
Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended December 31, 2013 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as that term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act). Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external reporting purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. We developed our internal control over financial reporting through a process in which our management applied its judgment in assessing the costs and benefits of various controls and procedures, which, by their nature, can provide only reasonable assurance regarding the control objectives. You should note that the design of any system of controls is based in part on various assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and we cannot assure you that any system of controls will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions, regardless of how remote. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies and procedures may deteriorate.
Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive, financial and accounting officers, we have conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in "Internal Control – Integrated Framework (1992)" issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. This evaluation included a review of the documentation surrounding our financial reporting controls, an evaluation of the design effectiveness of these controls, testing of the operating effectiveness of these controls and an evaluation of our overall control environment. Based on that evaluation, our management has concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2013.
Ernst & Young LLP, the independent registered public accounting firm that audited our financial statements, has audited our internal control over financial reporting, as stated in their report that follows.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

The Board of Directors and Shareholders of Oceaneering International, Inc.
We have audited the internal control over financial reporting of Oceaneering International, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the "Company") as of December 31, 2013, based on criteria established in Internal Control – Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (1992 framework) (the "COSO criteria"). The Company's management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting, and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting included in the accompanying Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the company's internal control over financial reporting based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
A company's internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company's internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion, the Company maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of
December 31, 2013, based on the COSO criteria.
We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated balance sheets of the Company as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, cash flows, and shareholders' equity for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2013, and our report dated February 20, 2014 expressed an unqualified opinion thereon.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of Oceaneering International, Inc.
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Oceaneering International, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the "Company") as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, cash flows, and shareholders' equity for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2013. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the consolidated results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2013, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013, based on criteria established in Internal Control – Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (1992 framework) and our report dated February 20, 2014 expressed an unqualified opinion thereon.
