TRICO MARINE SERVICES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1. Organization and Basis of Presentation
     The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Trico Marine Services, Inc. (the “Company”) and its consolidated subsidiaries. The consolidated financial statements of the Company include the accounts of those subsidiaries where the Company directly or indirectly has more than 50% of the ownership rights and for which the right to participate in significant management decisions is not shared with other shareholders. Beginning January 1, 2010, in accordance with new guidelines for consolidation of variable interest entities, the Company deconsolidated Eastern Marine Services Limited (“EMSL”). See Note 13. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. For comparative purposes, certain amounts in 2009 have been adjusted to conform to the current period’s presentation.
     The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information required for complete financial statements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, which consist of normal recurring items considered necessary for a fair presentation, have been included. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results of operations to be expected for the full year.
     The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts as well as certain disclosures. The Company’s financial statements include amounts that are based on management’s best estimates and judgments. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
     The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2009 has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, since certain information and disclosures normally included in the notes to the financial statements have been condensed or omitted for interim periods as permitted by the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009 (the “2009 Form 10-K”).
2. Risks, Uncertainties and Going Concern
     The Company’s inability to meet its past and current commitments, and uncertainties associated with the Company’s ability to meet its other commitments as they come due, to comply with its debt covenants or to repay its outstanding debt raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from these uncertainties.
     The Company’s cash and credit capacity have not been sufficient to enable it to meet its obligations, and the Company’s forecasted cash and available credit capacity are not expected to be sufficient to meet its other commitments as they come due over the next twelve months. The Company did not make the approximately $8 million interest payment due on May 15, 2010 for the 8.125% secured convertible debentures due 2013 (the “8.125% Debentures”) prior to the expiration of the applicable 30-day grace period, the approximately $10.1 million principal payment due on August 1, 2010 for the 8.125% Debentures (for which there is no grace period) and the approximately $2.3 million interest payment due on July 15, 2010 for the 3% senior convertible debentures due 2027 (the “3% Debentures”). As a result, events of default have occurred under the 8.125% Debentures and the 3% Debentures. As described below, the Company has entered into a forbearance agreement with the holders on 51% of the outstanding principal amount of the 8.125% Debentures.

Table of Contents

     In addition, the Company believes it is highly unlikely that it will remain in compliance in future periods with covenants requiring it to achieve financial thresholds, including an EBITDA threshold in its $25 million U.S. credit facility agreement (the “U.S. Credit Facility”), the 11 7/8% senior secured notes due 2014 (the “Senior Secured Notes”) issued by Trico Shipping AS (“Trico Shipping”) and Trico Shipping’s working capital facility (the “Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility”) and a liquidity threshold in the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. In particular, the Company expects that it may not be in compliance with financial covenants requiring the Company to achieve EBITDA targets measured over the trailing twelve months as specified in the U.S. Credit Facility, Senior Secured Notes and Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. If the Company fails to maintain compliance with these covenants under the various indentures and forbearance agreements, its creditors may take certain actions, including declaring the outstanding principal of the applicable debt to be due and payable immediately. In addition, the Company’s results of operations may limit Trico Shipping’s ability to access additional funds under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. In its current circumstances, if such indebtedness were accelerated, the Company would be unable to satisfy its obligations under the 8.125% Debentures, the 3% Debentures, the Senior Secured Notes, the 6.11% notes due 2014 (the “6.11% Notes”), the U.S. Credit Facility or the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. In an effort to avoid the acceleration of such indebtedness, the Company has entered into (i) a forbearance agreement with holders of the 8.125% Debentures, (ii) a First Supplemental Indenture (as defined in Note 5) with respect to the Senior Secured Notes, (iii) an amendment to the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility and (iv) an amendment to the U.S. Credit Facility. For additional information, see Notes 5 and 18.
     The Company, its financial advisor, Evercore Partners, and its restructuring advisor, AP Services, LLC (“AlixPartners”), are in discussions with some of the Company’s existing debt holders regarding restructuring certain of these obligations. While the Company has completed additional financing for both Trico Other (as defined below) and Trico Supply (as defined below), the Company’s liquidity at both Trico Other and Trico Supply is limited and if unable to reach agreement within a limited time period with certain of its debt holders, the Company will need to commence a voluntary case in a United States Bankruptcy Court (the “Bankruptcy Court”) concerning each of the Company, Trico Marine Assets, Inc. (“TMA”), Trico Marine Operators, Inc. (“TMO”), Trico Marine Cayman, LP (“Trico Cayman”), Trico Marine International, Inc. (“TMI”) and Trico Holdco, LLC (“Trico Holdco”) prior to September 8, 2010 to avoid an event of default under the U.S. Credit Facility and cross-defaults under its other debt agreements. Additionally, even if agreements regarding debt restructuring are reached within the necessary time periods, the Company may need to undertake bankruptcy proceedings in order to implement the debt restructurings and/or achieve other changes to its cost structure. The Company may also be required to undertake bankruptcy proceedings as a result of its inability to meet its past, current and future commitments. In addition, some or all of our subsidiaries may be required to seek protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, and our creditors may seek to force us or some of our subsidiaries into insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings. The credit and business risk profiles of the Company could be adversely affected by a bankruptcy filing which may have a materially adverse effect on its business and results of operations.
     For the quarter ended June 30, 2010, the Company incurred $9.1 million in costs related to pursuing measures to improve the Company’s liquidity and capital structure. These expenses are primarily related to legal and consulting fees and are reflected as “reorganization costs” in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations and as a use of operating cash flows in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of cash flows.
     Due to the defaults mentioned above on the 8.125% Debentures and the 3% Debentures and cross-defaults and cross- acceleration on the Senior Secured Notes, 3% Debentures Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility, U.S. Credit Facility, and, the likelihood that the Company will not remain in compliance in future periods with certain covenants related to the Senior Secured Notes and Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility, the cross defaults to the U.S. Credit Facility, and the bankruptcy requirement in the U.S. Credit Facility, all of the Company’s debt has been classified as current as of June 30, 2010.
     The Company will need to commence a voluntary case in the Bankruptcy Court concerning each of the Company, TMA, TMO, Trico Cayman, TMI and Trico Holdco prior to September 8, 2010 to avoid an event of default under the U.S. Credit Facility and cross-defaults under the Company’s other debt agreements. Additionally, even if agreements regarding debt restructuring are reached within the necessary time periods, the Company may need to undertake bankruptcy proceedings in order to implement the debt restructurings and/or achieve other changes to its cost structure. The Company may also be required to undertake bankruptcy proceedings as a result of our inability to meet its past, current and future commitments. The Company’s credit and business risk profiles could be adversely affected by a bankruptcy filing which may have a materially adverse effect on its business and results of operations.
     The Company’s interest payment obligations are concentrated in the months of May and November with approximately $24 million of interest due on the Senior Secured Notes on each of May 1 and November 1, in addition to the payments due on the 8.125% Debentures on each of May 15 and November 15. During the forbearance period, the Company has agreed to pay an additional 2.00% interest on the Senior Secured Notes which increases the semi-annual interest payments by approximately $4.0 million. Additionally, the terms of the Company’s credit agreements require that some or all of the proceeds from certain asset sales be used to permanently reduce outstanding debt which could substantially reduce the amount of proceeds it retains. There was $22 million of availability under the Company’s credit facilities as of June 30, 2010, but drawing on this availability remains subject to completion of certain deliverables and the absence of an event of default under such facility. In addition, on August 16, 2010, the Company and Trico Shipping each agreed not to draw on this availability prior to December 31, 2010. See Note 18. The Company’s ability to refinance any of its existing indebtedness on commercially reasonable terms or to access additional amounts under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility may be materially and adversely impacted by the Company’s financial condition and the current credit market conditions.
     At June 30, 2010, the Company had available cash of $32 million. (This amount and other amounts in this section reflecting U.S. Dollar equivalents for foreign denominated debt amounts are translated at currency rates in effect at June 30, 2010.) As of June 30, 2010, payments due on the Company’s contractual obligations during the next twelve months were approximately $1.0 billion. This includes $818 million of principal payments of debt as of June 30, 2010, $203 million of which can be paid in cash or converted into stock at the Company’s option (however the availability of the Company’s common stock to satisfy such conversions is limited), $97 million of time charter obligations, $29 million of vessel construction obligations, $97 million of estimated interest expense, and approximately $3 million of other operating expenses such as operating leases and pension obligations. The Company expects it will need to complete additional actions to have sufficient liquidity to satisfy these obligations. The Company took action to cancel construction by Tebma shipyard in India (“Tebma”) of four new build multi-purpose platform supply vessels (“MPSVs”) on July 15, 2010, which, if effective, would reduce its committed future capital expenditures to approximately $20 million for two remaining MPSVs. During the second quarter of 2010, the Company took delivery of the second VS-470 vessel. See the discussion under the caption “Tebma” in Note 14.

     The Company is highly leveraged and its debt imposes significant restrictions on it and increases its vulnerability to adverse economic and industry conditions. Under the terms of the Senior Secured Notes, the Company’s business has been effectively split into two groups: (i) “Trico Supply”, where substantially all of its subsea services business and all of its subsea protection business resides along with its North Sea towing and supply business and (ii) “Trico Other”, whose business is comprised primarily of the Company’s non-North Sea towing and supply businesses. Trico Other has the obligation, among other things, to pay the debt service related to the 8.125% Debentures, the 3% Debentures, the U.S. Credit Facility, and the 6.11% Notes and to pay the majority of corporate related expenses while Trico Supply has the obligation to make debt service payments related to the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. Under the terms of the Senior Secured Notes, the ability of Trico Supply to provide funding on an ongoing basis to Trico Other is limited by restrictions on Trico Supply’s ability to pay dividends and principal and interest on intercompany debt unless certain financial measures are met. Other than an annual reimbursement of up to $5 million related to the reimbursement of corporate expenses, a one-time $5 million restricted payment basket, and certain carve outs related to the sale of one vessel, the Company does not expect Trico Supply to be able to transfer additional funds to Trico Other in the foreseeable future. During the forbearance period for the Senior Secured Notes, the total amount transferred is limited to $5.0 million. During the first six months of 2010, a total of $3.5 million was transferred from Trico Supply to Trico Other under the one-time $5 million restricted payment basket and approximately $1.1 million was transferred related to the $5 million annual reimbursement for corporate expenses.
     In addition to the previously mentioned actions being taken to increase their liquidity, the ability of each of Trico Supply, Trico Other, and the Company overall to obtain minimum levels of operating cash flows and liquidity to fund their operations, meet their debt service requirements, and remain in compliance with their debt covenants, is dependent on their ability to accomplish the following: (i) secure profitable contracts through a balance of spot exposure and term contracts, (ii) achieve certain levels of vessel and service spread utilization, and (iii) deploy vessels to the most profitable markets. The forecasted cash flows and liquidity for each of Trico Supply, Trico Other, and the Company are dependent on each meeting certain assumptions regarding fleet utilization, average day rates, operating and general and administrative expenses, and in the case of Trico Supply, new vessel deliveries, which could prove to be inaccurate. Within certain constraints, the Company can conserve capital by reducing or delaying capital expenditures, deferring non-regulatory maintenance expenditures and further reducing operating and administrative costs through various measures.
     The Company’s revenues are primarily generated from entities operating in the oil and gas industry in the North Sea, the Asia Pacific regions, West Africa, Brazil and the Mexican Gulf of Mexico (“Mexico”). The Company’s international operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 account currently for 100% of revenues and are subject to a number of risks inherent to international operations including exchange rate fluctuations, unanticipated assessments from tax or regulatory authorities, and changes in laws or regulations. In addition, because of the Company’s corporate structure, it may not be able to repatriate funds from Trico Supply without adverse tax or debt compliance consequences. These factors could have a material adverse affect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
     Because the Company’s revenues are generated primarily from customers who have similar economic interests, its operations are also susceptible to market volatility resulting from economic, cyclical, weather or other factors related to the energy industry. Changes in the level of operating and capital spending in the industry, decreases in oil and gas prices, or industry perceptions about future oil and gas prices could materially decrease the demand for the Company’s services, adversely affecting its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
     The Company’s operations, particularly in the North Sea, the Asia Pacific regions, West Africa, Mexico, and Brazil, depend on the continuing business of a limited number of key customers and some of its long-term contracts contain early termination options in favor of its customers. If any of these customers terminate their contracts with the Company, fail to renew an existing contract, refuse to award new contracts or choose to exercise their termination rights, the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows could be adversely affected.
     The Company’s certificate of incorporation effectively requires that it remain eligible under the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, as amended, or the Jones Act, and together with the Shipping Act of 1916, the Shipping Acts. The Shipping Acts require that vessels engaged in the U.S. coastwise trade and other services generally be owned by U.S. citizens and built in the U.S. For a corporation engaged in the U.S. coastwise trade to be deemed a U.S. citizen: (i) the corporation must be organized under the laws of the U.S. or of a state, territory or possession thereof, (ii) each of the president or other chief executive officer and the chairman of the board of

Table of Contents

directors of such corporation must be a U.S. citizen, (iii) no more than 25% of the directors of such corporation necessary to the transaction of business can be non-U.S. citizens and (iv) at least 75% of the interest in such corporation must be owned by U.S. “citizens” (as defined in the Shipping Acts). The Jones Act also treats as a prohibited “controlling interest” any (i) contract or understanding by which more than 25% of the voting power in the corporation may be exercised, directly or indirectly, on behalf of a non-U.S. citizen and (ii) the existence of any other means by which control of more than 25% of any interest in the corporation is given to or permitted to be exercised by a non-U.S. citizen. The Company expects decommissioning and deep water projects in the Gulf of Mexico to comprise an important part of its subsea strategy, which may require continued compliance with the Jones Act. Any action that risks its status under the Jones Act could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
3. Asset Sales
     Asset Sales. During the first quarter of 2010, the Company sold three offshore supply vessels (“OSVs”) and one subsea platform supply vessel (“SPSV”) for net proceeds of $2.8 million and a gain of $0.9 million. The sale of these vessels did not require a debt prepayment. During the second quarter of 2010, the Company sold one anchor handling, towing and supply vessel (“AHTS”) and one OSV for $16.5 million in net proceeds and a gain of $4.5 million which did require a partial debt repayment of $14.5 million on the U.S. Credit Facility.
     On April 28, 2009, the Company sold a platform supply vessel for $26.0 million in net proceeds and recognized a gain on sale of $15.2 million. The sale of this vessel required a prepayment of approximately $14.9 million of the $200 million Revolving Loan Facility (as defined in Note 5) as the vessel served as security for that facility. During June 2009, the Company sold five supply vessels for a total of $3.8 million, resulting in a gain of $2.5 million. The sale of these vessels did not require a debt prepayment.
     Assets Held for Sale. Marine vessels held for sale at June 30, 2010 included one OSV which is included in the Company’s towing and supply segment. This vessel was subsequently sold for approximately $1.0 million on July 16, 2010 and the sale did not require a debt prepayment.
4. Intangible Assets
     Intangible assets consist of trade names and customer relationships. The Company classified trade names as indefinite lived intangible assets. Under authoritative guidance for goodwill and other intangibles, indefinite lived assets are not amortized but instead are reviewed for impairment annually and more frequently if events or circumstances indicate that the asset may be impaired. At December 31, 2009, the Company performed an impairment analysis of intangible assets. The Company did not recognize an impairment in 2009. Due to further deterioration in the Company's operational results in the second quarter and further reductions in its forecasted revenue outlook, an interim impairment assessment of intangible assets was performed at June 30, 2010. Based on this assessment, an impairment charge, using the "relief-from-royalty" valuation method, of $10.2 million was recognized in the second quarter of 2010 on trade name assets. Customer lists were also evaluated for impairment based on estimated undiscounted future cash flows. No impairments were necessary at December 31, 2009 or June 30, 2010 for the Company's customer list assets. Further deterioration in the Company's operating performance, reductions in its revenue forecast or the loss of key customer relationships could result in further impairments to the Company's intangible assets in future periods and such amounts could be material.

The estimated amortization expense for the remainder of 2010 is estimated to be $3.4 million and for the years 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 is estimated to be $7.3 million per year.

(1)   As of June 30, 2010, interest on the $25 million U.S. Credit Facility is at the one month London inter-bank offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus 11.50% with a minimum LIBOR amount of 2.50%. The one month LIBOR rate was 0.3% for the period ending June 30, 2010. As of December 31, 2009, interest was at three month LIBOR plus 5.00%. The three month LIBOR rate was 0.3% for the period ending December 31, 2009. The U.S. Credit Facility was subsequently amended on August 10, 2010 to increase the interest rate, retroactive to August 1, 2010, to LIBOR (subject to a minimum floor of 2.5%) plus 15.5%.
 
(2)   Interest on the revolving loan portion of the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility is payable on the outstanding principal amount of the revolving loans ($7.2 million at June 30, 2010) at the Eurodollar rate designated by the British Bankers Association plus 5.0% and is subject to an additional utilization fee of 3.0%, payable quarterly in arrears, if the facility is more than 50% drawn. An additional 2.0% is payable during the forbearance period. The Term Loans (as defined below) ($28.1 million at June 30, 2010) mature on January 31, 2014 and will bear interest at the initial rate of 13.5% per annum until June 30, 2013 and 14.5% per annum thereafter. Undrawn amounts under the Term Loan Facility (as defined below) are subject to a fee equal to 1.5% per annum until December 31, 2010 and 2.5% per annum thereafter.
 
(3)   In December 2009, the Company entered into an amendment that excluded the impact on the minimum net worth covenant of the impairment charge related to four construction vessels. The Company was in compliance with this covenant as of December 31, 2009. As of June 11, 2010, the previous covenants were replaced with new covenants with the first measurement period being June 30, 2010 for minimum EBITDA. There is no longer a minimum net worth covenant.
 
(4)   In December 2009, the Company entered into an amendment to increase the consolidated leverage ratio to 11.0:1 for the quarters ending December 31, 2009, March 31, 2010, and June 30, 2010 and to 10.0:1 for the quarter ending September 30, 2010 while leaving the ratio levels for December 31, 2010 and beyond unchanged. In conjunction with this amendment, the current availability under the facility was reduced to approximately $14.8 million with the reduced availability being restored when the Company is below the consolidated ratio levels that were in effect prior to this amendment. The Company was in compliance with this covenant as of December 31, 2009. On March 31, 2010, the Company received a waiver to the maximum consolidated leverage ratio as of March 31, 2010. Absent this waiver, the Company would not have been in compliance with this covenant as of March 31, 2010. As of June 11, 2010, the previous covenants were replaced with new covenants with the first measurement period being June 30, 2010 for minimum EBITDA. There is no longer a minimum net worth or a maximum consolidated leverage ratio covenant associated with the U.S. Credit Facility.
 
(5)   Holders of the 3% Debentures have the right to require the Company to repurchase the debentures in cash at par on each of January 15, 2014, January 15, 2017 and January 15, 2022 or upon occurrence of a fundamental change in business.
 
(6)   Trico Marine Services, Inc. is a guarantor of the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. This guarantee is subordinated to any obligations under the U.S. Credit Facility.
 
(7)   All of the Company’s debt was classified as current as of June 30, 2010. The Company did not make the approximately $8 million interest payment due on May 15, 2010 for the 8.125% Debentures prior to the expiration of the applicable 30-day grace period, the approximately $10.1 million principal payment due on August 1, 2010 for the 8.125% Debentures (for which there is no grace period) and the approximately $2.3 million interest payment due on July 15, 2010 for the 3% Debentures.

Table of Contents

     All of the Company’s debt was classified as current as of June 30, 2010. As of June 30, 2010, the Company was in default on the 8.125% Debentures due to non-payment of interest and principal within applicable grace periods. The Company did not make the interest payment due on July 15, 2010 for the 3% Debentures. As of June 30, 2010, the Senior Secured Notes and Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility are subject to forbearance agreements that require the Company to remain in compliance with certain requirements, including minimum liquidity and minimum consolidated cash flow. If the Company fails to maintain compliance with the requirements of these forbearance agreements, the holders and/or lenders may take certain actions, including declaring the outstanding principal of the applicable debt to be due and payable immediately. The Company believes it is highly unlikely that it will remain in compliance in future periods with covenants requiring it to achieve financial thresholds, including an EBITDA threshold in its U.S. Credit Facility, Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility and a liquidity threshold in the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility the Senior Secured Notes and Facility. The U.S. Credit Facility is classified as current due to the requirement that the Company files for bankruptcy by September 8, 2010. The 6.11% Notes are classified as current due to the requirement that Trico Marine Services, Inc., as guarantor under the 6.11% Notes, file bankruptcy by September 8, 2010 to avoid an event of default under the U.S. Credit Facility.
     Deferred financing costs related to the Company’s existing debt remain recorded as of June 30, 2010. These costs would be expensed in the period the related debt is either extinguished or it becomes evident that the Company will not be able to negotiate a waiver or restructure the debt and the debt is puttable by the lenders.
     The Company’s capitalized interest totaled $4.4 million and $7.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and $4.9 million and $9.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009.
     As of August 16, 2010, the Company was in default on $352.8 million principal amount of debt (net of unamortized discounts), plus $16.3 million of interest on such debt that is due and payable.
     U.S. Credit Facility. In January 2008, the Company entered into the U.S. Credit Facility secured by an equity interest in direct material domestic subsidiaries, first preferred mortgages on vessels owned by TMA and a pledge on the intercompany note due from Trico Supply AS to TMO A voluntary prepayment of $15 million was made on January 14, 2009 which reduced the commitment to $35 million. In October 2009, $10 million of the proceeds from the sale of the Northern Challenger were used to permanently reduce the commitment under the facility to $25 million.
     On January 15, 2010, the U.S. Credit Facility was amended to change the definition of Free Liquidity such that any amounts that were committed under the facility, whether available to be drawn or not, would be included for the purposes of calculating the free liquidity covenant. In March 2010, the Company received waivers related to the requirement that an unqualified auditors’ opinion without an explanatory paragraph in relation to going concern accompany its annual financial statements.
      In March 2010, the Company received a waiver related to the consolidated leverage ratio of the U.S. Credit Facility for the period ending March 31, 2010. Absent this waiver, the Company would not have been in compliance with this covenant.
     In April 2010, the U.S. Credit Facility was amended which (i) enabled the Company to re-borrow certain amounts used to cash collateralize letters of credit, (ii) provided that specified asset sales will not require a reduction in the Total Commitment (as defined in the U.S. Credit Facility), (iii) allowed the Company and its subsidiaries to make cash capital contributions and/or loans to joint ventures and other subsidiaries of the Company with the written consent of Nordea Bank Finland plc, New York Branch (“Nordea”), provided that no written consent is necessary if the ultimate recipient of the proceeds is a credit party under and as defined in the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility and (iv) updated a financial condition representation.
     In June 2010, the U.S. Credit Facility was amended (the “Amendments”) to:
  (i)   provide for the assignment of the loans and commitments,
 
  (ii)   provide for the consent to and reflect the resignation of Nordea as administrative agent under the U.S. Credit Facility and the assumption by Obsidian Agency Services, Inc. (“Obsidian”) of all of Nordea’s rights, interests, liabilities and obligations as the administrative agent under the U.S. Credit Facility,
 
  (iii)   terminate the letter of credit facility,
 
  (iv)   convert the revolving credit commitments to term loan commitments,
 
  (v)   increase the borrowing availability of the Company up to $25 million (the borrowing availability is currently limited to $24.5 million pending acceptable resolution of certain due diligence items),
 
  (vi)   increase the pricing margin to LIBOR (subject to a minimum floor of 2.5%) plus 11.5% and eliminate the utilization fee of 3.00%,
 
  (vii)   replace the financial covenants with new financial covenants providing for (a) minimum cumulative EBITDA levels from June 1, 2010 with the first measurement period being the month ended June 30, 2010, (b) minimum consolidated cash flows for various periods beginning with the period between June 11, 2010 and ending on July 23, 2010 and for successive four or five week periods thereafter and (c) minimum cumulative cash flows as of the same measurement ending dates as provided for in (b) and beginning on June 11, 2010, (d) limiting maintenance related capital expenditures to $2.0 million during the term of the loan, and (e) requiring that the appraised value of the vessels that serve as collateral for the facility be at least 120% of the amount of the facility. The cash flows in (b) and (c) are determined by changes in the cash flows of the borrower and the guarantors to the facility which excludes Trico Supply AS and any of its subsidiaries. The minimum EBITDA levels are determined by the EBITDA of the borrower and the guarantors to the facility plus the EBITDA of the Company’s Mexican joint venture whose results are included in the Company’s financial statements,
 
  (viii)   add additional guarantors of the indebtedness incurred by Trico under the U.S. Credit Facility, and
 
  (ix)   provide that all net cash proceeds from asset sales be deposited into the blocked account from which the lenders, at their option, may apply as a repayment of the outstanding loans, except that lenders may not apply proceeds from the sale of any equity interest in the Mexican joint venture in excess of $8.0 million, up to an additional $5.0 million of proceeds, to repay the outstanding loans, and may only apply only 50% of proceeds in excess of $13.0 million received from such a sale to repay the outstanding loans.

     The U.S. Credit Facility was subsequently amended on August 16, 2010 to (i) prevent defaults under the 3% Debentures from creating a cross-default under the U.S. Credit Facility and (ii) make certain changes to the Events of Default as reflected below. In addition, the amendment allows, in certain circumstances, the Company to consent to relief under an involuntary proceeding against the Company in the District of Delaware under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. For additional information, see Note 18.
     The U.S. Credit Facility may be used by the Company (i) to cash collateralize certain outstanding letters of credit in an amount up to 105% of the stated amount of such letters of credit, (ii) to pay fees and expenses incurred in connection with the entering into of the Amendments and (iii) for the Company and its subsidiaries’ general corporate and working capital purposes. Immediately after entering into the Amendments, the Company borrowed the full term loan amount of $25.0 million less a hold-back of $0.5 million pending resolution of certain due diligence issues of which approximately $11.5 million was used to pay outstanding amounts under the U.S. Credit Facility and approximately $3.6 million was used to cash collateralize the existing letters of credit. Proceeds of the Amendments have been funded into a blocked account. The Company must satisfy certain conditions in order to access such funds including (i) there having occurred no default or event of default, (ii) accuracy of all representations and warranties in all material respects and (iii) not more than $1.0 million on deposit in the Company’s operating accounts. The Company may not request a release of funds from the blocked account more than twice per week. Amounts in the blocked account may only be released in accordance with a budget provided by the Company to the lenders at closing of the Amendments.
     The U.S. Credit Facility’s maturity date is December 31, 2011. The term loan will bear interest at the one-month LIBOR rate (subject to a 2.50% floor) plus a margin of 15.5%. The U.S. Credit Facility is secured by first preferred ship mortgages on certain vessels, the equity of TMA and TMO, 65% of the equity of Trico Cayman, a pledge of an intercompany note between Trico Supply AS and TMO, all deposit accounts of TMS, TMA and TMO and guarantees from TMA, TMO and certain of the direct and indirect subsidiaries of Trico Marine Services, Inc., excluding Trico Supply AS and any of its subsidiaries.
     In addition, the U.S. Credit Facility contains non-financial covenants, including but not limited to, covenants limiting the Company and its subsidiaries’ ability to incur additional indebtedness, to create or incur certain liens on their property, to consolidate, merge or transfer assets, to make dividends or distributions, to dispose of property, to make investments, or to engage in business activities materially different from those presently conducted.
     The U.S. Credit Facility provides that certain events, will be an event of default, including the failure to commence a voluntary case in the Bankruptcy Court concerning each of the Company, TMA, TMO, Trico Cayman, TMI and Trico Holdco prior to the earlier of (i) September 8, 2010, and (ii) the later of (x) August 23, 2010 and (y) if a forbearance agreement has been entered into with the holders of not less than a majority of the outstanding principal amount of the 3% Debentures, then the second business day after forbearance agreements are no longer in effect both with the holders of not less than 51% of the outstanding principal amount of the 8.125% Debentures and with the holders of not less than a majority of the outstanding principal amount of the 3% Debentures. Also it is an event of default if the forbearance agreement with the holders of not less than 51% of the outstanding principal amount of the 8.125% Debentures is terminated or expires on or after August 23, 2010 and a voluntary bankruptcy case is not commenced within two business days of the termination or expiration. It is also an event of default if at any time the Company ceases diligently to pursue a prepackaged plan of reorganization acceptable to the lenders or if the Company fails to satisfy the conditions precedent to the funding of the Debtor-in-Possession Term Loan Credit Facility (a “DIP Facility”) described below within 30 days after the commencement of a voluntary bankruptcy. During the continuance of an event of default, the lenders may take a number of actions, including declaring the entire amount then outstanding under the U.S. Credit Facility due and payable.
     On June 11, 2010, the Company entered into (i) a Reimbursement Agreement (the “Reimbursement Agreement”) by and among the Company, TMA, TMO and Nordea and (ii) a L/C Cash Collateral Agreement (together with the Reimbursement Agreement, the “Letter of Credit Agreements”) pursuant to which six letters of credit (as amended, the “Continuing Letters of Credit”) with an aggregate stated amount of $3.5 million were (a) kept outstanding after the termination of the letter of credit facility pursuant to the Amendments and (b) cash collateralized in an amount equal to 105% of the stated amount of such letters of credit. Nordea has no obligation to issue new letters of credit pursuant to the Letter of Credit Agreements. Two letters of credit, with stated amounts of approximately $0.3 million expired in July 2010. The remaining letters of credit have various expiration dates through December 2010 for (i) securing certain payments under vessel operating leases and (ii) payment of certain taxes in Trinidad and Tobago. Pursuant to these agreements, the letters of credit, which the Company previously issued under the U.S Credit Facility, transitioned to being cash collateralized at 105% of face value.

     The U.S. Credit Facility subjects the Company’s subsidiaries that are parties to the credit agreement to certain financial and other covenants including, but not limited to, affirmative and negative covenants with respect to indebtedness, liens, declaration or payment of dividends, sales of assets, investments, minimum cumulative EBITDA, minimum consolidated cash flows and collateral coverage. Payment under the U.S. Credit Facility may be accelerated following certain events of default including, but not limited to, failure to make payments when due, noncompliance with covenants, breaches of representations and warranties, expiration of certain forebearance agreements (as described above), commencement of insolvency proceedings, entry of judgment in excess of $1 million, defaults by any of the credit parties under certain other indebtedness in excess of $1 million and occurrence of certain changes of control.
     Per the terms of the commitment letter entered into between the Company and Tennenbaum DIP Opportunity Fund, LLC (“Tennenbaum”) on June 8, 2010 (the “Commitment Letter”), the U.S. Credit Facility may be converted to a DIP Facility should the Company and certain of its affiliates file voluntary petitions for relief (the “U.S. Chapter 11 Cases”) under the Bankruptcy Code. Pursuant to the Commitment Letter, Tennenbaum has agreed, subject to the terms and conditions contained therein, to refinance the U.S. Credit Facility. With respect to the existing commitment under the Commitment Letter, based on discussions with Tennenbaum, the Company believes that the conditions to borrowing under the existing commitment may not be satisfied. Accordingly, the Company has begun and is currently engaged in discussions with Tennenbaum concerning the terms of a revised or new commitment for debtor-in-possession financing, which will include, among other things a reduction of the amount of the facilities from $50 million to $35 million (of which $10 million would be new funds). There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain such revised or new commitment or that the Company will be able to draw on the existing commitment if a revised or new commitment is not obtained.
     8.125% Debentures. On May 11, 2009, the Company entered into exchange agreements (the “Exchange Agreements”) with existing holders (the “Investors”) of its 6.5% senior convertible debentures due 2028 (the “6.5% Debentures”). In accordance with the exchange (the “Exchange”) contemplated by the Exchange Agreements, on May 14, 2009, the Company exchanged $253.5 million in aggregate principal amount of its 6.5% Debentures (representing all of the outstanding 6.5% Debentures) for, in the aggregate, approximately $12.7 million in cash, 3,042,180 shares of the Company’s common stock (or warrants exercisable for $0.01 per share in lieu thereof) and $202.8 million in aggregate principal amount of the 8.125% Debentures.
     This Exchange was accounted for under modification accounting which required the Company to defer and amortize any change in value exchanged. The amount deferred was approximately $10 million and was reflected as a discount to the 8.125% Debentures, which is being amortized under the effective interest method over the life of the 8.125% Debentures. This discount represented the fair value of the warrants and common shares of stock that were tendered in the Exchange. The warrants issued in the Exchange were required to be recorded as a liability due to the net-cash settlement terms included in the Exchange Agreements and were revalued each reporting period based upon the Company’s stock price each period they were outstanding. All warrants were exercised by December 2009. Additionally, the debt issue costs previously recorded for the 6.5% Debentures continue to be amortized over the life of the 8.125% Debentures and the new debt issue costs were expensed.
     The Company pays interest on the unpaid principal amount of the 8.125% Debentures at a rate of 8.125 percent per annum. The Company will pay interest semiannually on May 15 and November 15 of each year. Interest on the 8.125% Debentures will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or, if no interest has been paid, from May 15, 2009. The Company did not make the interest payment due on May 15, 2010.
     The 8.125% Debentures are subject to quarterly principal amortizing payments beginning August 1, 2010 of 5% of the aggregate principal amount per quarter, increasing to 14% of the aggregate principal amount per quarter beginning February 1, 2012 until the final payment on February 1, 2013 (the “Maturity Date”). The Company has the right to elect at each payment date whether to pay principal installments in common stock, subject to certain limitations, or cash. The Company did not make this election in regards to the August 1, 2010 payment. The August 1, 2010 principal amortization payment has not been made. Separate from and prior to the Company’s election, a majority of the holders of the 8.125% Debentures can elect to have the payment of all or any portion of an installment of principal deferred until the Maturity Date. The 8.125% Debentures are also subject to mandatory prepayments, applied on a pro-rata basis, related to net cash proceeds of asset sales. Asset sales of greater than $5 million require a prepayment equal to 50% of net cash proceeds. Net cash proceeds exclude among other items, required repayment of debt. Asset sales between $0.5 million and $5 million do not require a prepayment of the 8.125% Debentures unless total gross proceeds of all asset sales between $0.5 million and $5 million exceed $10 million in any given year based on the issuance date of the 8.125% Debentures. If the total gross proceeds of asset sales between $0.5 million and $5 million during any given year exceed $10 million, a prepayment of 50% of net cash proceeds is required for all completed asset sales. After each twelve month period, the cumulative amount of total gross proceeds is reduced by $5 million for calculation purposes. The Company has the option to redeem the 8.125% Debentures at par plus accrued interest on or after May 1, 2011, if the trading price of the common stock exceeds 135% of the conversion price (currently $14.00 per share), subject to adjustment, for 20 consecutive trading days.

     The holders of the 8.125% Debentures have the option at any time to convert the 8.125% Debentures into the requisite number of shares of common stock. Holders who convert after May 1, 2011 are entitled to receive, in addition to the shares due upon conversion, a cash payment equal to the present value of remaining interest payments until final maturity. Holders of the 8.125% Debentures are entitled to require the Company to repurchase the debentures at par plus accrued interest in the event of certain fundamental change transactions. For more information regarding the conversion, redemption, and repurchase options of the 8.125% Debentures, see Note 5 of the 2009 Form 10-K.
     The conversion feature associated with the 8.125% Debentures is considered an embedded derivative as defined in the derivative instrument and hedging activities authoritative guidance. Under this guidance, the Company is required to bifurcate the conversion option as its fair value is not “clearly and closely” related to the debt host as the make-whole interest is based on the treasury bond rate. This embedded derivative is recorded at fair value on the date of issuance. The estimated fair value of the derivative on the date of issuance was $4.7 million, which was recorded as a non-current derivative liability on the balance sheet with the offset recorded as a discount on the 8.125% Debentures. The derivative liability must be marked-to-market each reporting period with changes to its fair value recorded in the consolidated statement of income as other income (expense) and the discount being accreted through an additional non-cash charge to interest expense over the term of the debt. See Note 6 for further discussion on the derivative liability.
     The 8.125% Debentures and the shares of common stock issuable upon the conversion of the 8.125% Debentures have not been registered because the Company sold the 8.125% Debentures in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.
     The 8.125% Debentures are senior secured obligations of the Company, rank senior to all other indebtedness of the Company with respect to the collateral (other than indebtedness secured by permitted liens on the collateral), rank on parity in right of payment with all other senior indebtedness of the Company, and rank senior in right of payment to all subordinated indebtedness of the Company. The 8.125% Debentures shall rank senior to all future indebtedness of the Company to the extent the future indebtedness is expressly subordinated to the 8.125% Debentures. The 8.125% Debentures are secured by a perfected security interest in certain assets of the Company and its subsidiaries. These assets include, as of June 30, 2010, three SPSVs and nine OSVs and, among other assets, one of three intercompany notes between Trico Supply and Trico Other. Due to the vessel sale in July 2010, there are now eight OSVs. The note that is pledged as security has an approximate principal amount of $163.1 million as of June 30, 2010 and is between Trico Supply AS (borrower) and TMO (lender). The two notes which are not pledged to the 8.125% Debentures are between Trico Shipping (borrower) and Trico Marine Services, Inc. (lender) with a principal amount of approximately $321.0 million as of June 30, 2010 and between Trico Supply AS (borrower) and Trico Cayman (lender) with a principal amount of approximately $33.5 million as of June 30, 2010. These three intercompany notes do not include any subordination provisions among themselves but are each subordinated to the Senior Secured Notes.
     The Company failed to make the approximately $8.0 million interest payment due on May 15, 2010 on the 8.125% Debentures. On June 17, 2010, the 30-day grace period permitted under the indenture governing the 8.125% Debentures (the “8.125% Indenture”) expired. The expiration of this 30-day grace period triggered an event of default. As a result of this event of default, the Trustee for the 8.125% Debentures or 25% of the holders (as defined in the 8.125% Indenture) thereof, may elect to accelerate the 8.125% Debentures, making them immediately due and payable. Pursuant to the 8.125% Indenture, the Trustee may also exercise certain rights and remedies with respect to the collateral securing the 8.125% Debentures. However, on June 27, 2010, the Company and certain consenting holders of the 8.125% Debentures entered into a forbearance agreement (the “Forbearance Agreement”). On August 1, 2010, the Company failed to make the scheduled principal amortization payment of $10.1 million.
     Under the Forbearance Agreement, each Consenting Holder agreed, among other things, not to (i) pursue any remedy (including, without limitation, the acceleration of any obligation owing in respect of the 8.125% Indenture and/or the 8.125% Debentures) against the Company under the 8.125% Debentures or the 8.125% Indenture for not making interest or principal payments as scheduled or within the applicable grace period, as applicable, or (ii) initiate, or have initiated on its behalf, any litigation or proceeding of any kind with respect to the 8.125% Debentures other than to enforce Forbearance Agreement. Further, each Consenting Holder agreed to request that the trustee of the 8.125% Indenture not enforce remedies (including acceleration) pursuant to the terms of the 8.125% Debentures or the 8.125% Indenture until the Forbearance Agreement has terminated. Under the Forbearance Agreement, the Company shall not (and shall direct its subsidiaries not to) consummate any financing transaction or material transactions outside the ordinary course of business without providing the consenting holders and their advisors advance notice of at least 48 hours; provided that the foregoing shall not apply to, among other things, the granting of certain security interests or liens in collateral for the benefit of the secured parties under Trico Shipping’s outstanding notes and related indenture. The Forbearance Agreement terminated on August 15, 2010. On August 16, 2010 the Company and the consenting holders of the 8.125% Debentures entered into a new forbearance agreement (the “August Forbearance Agreement”). For additional information, see Note 18.

     3% Debentures. In February 2007, the Company issued $150.0 million of its 3% Debentures. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $145.2 million after deducting commissions and offering costs of approximately $4.8 million. Net proceeds of the offering were used for the acquisition of Active Subsea ASA, financing of the Company’s fleet renewal program and for general corporate purposes. Interest on the 3% Debentures is payable semiannually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year. The 3% Debentures will mature on January 15, 2027, unless earlier converted, redeemed or repurchased. Effective January 1, 2009, the 3% Debentures were subject to new authoritative guidance.
     The 3% Debentures are senior unsecured obligations of the Company and rank equally in right of payment to all of the Company’s other existing and future senior indebtedness. The 3% Debentures are effectively subordinated to all of the Company’s existing and future secured indebtedness to the extent of the value of its assets collateralizing such indebtedness and any liabilities of its subsidiaries. The 3% Debentures and shares of common stock issuable upon the conversion of the debentures have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933.
     The 3% Debentures are convertible into cash and, if applicable, shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share, based on an initial conversion rate of 23.0216 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the 3% Debentures (which is equal to an initial conversion price of approximately $43.44 per share), subject to adjustment and certain limitations. Should the holders of the 3% Debentures convert, the Company would pay the holders $1,000 in cash for each $1,000 in principal plus the number of shares of stock equal to the value of the conversion option in excess of $43.44 per share. For more information regarding the conversion and redemption options of the 3% Debentures, see Note 5 of the 2009 Form 10-K.
     The holders of the Company’s 3% Debentures have the right to require the Company to repurchase the debentures upon the occurrence of a “Fundamental Change” in its business. See Note 5 of the 2009 Form 10-K for more information.
     The amount of interest cost recognized for the three and six months ending June 30, 2010 relating to both the contractual interest coupon and amortization of the discount on the liability component is $2.7 million and $5.4 million, respectively, compared to $2.6 million and $5.1 million for the three and six months ending June 30, 2009, respectively. The coupon and the amortization of the discount on the debt will yield an effective interest rate of approximately 8.9% on these convertible notes.
     The Company did not make the scheduled interest payment of $2.25 million when due on July 15, 2010. On August 14, 2010, the 30-day grace period permitted under the indenture governing the 3% Debentures (the “3% Indenture”) expired. The expiration of this 30-day grace period triggered an event of default. As a result of such event of default, the Trustee for the 3% Debentures or 25% of the holders (as defined in the 3% Indenture) thereof, may elect to accelerate the 3% Debentures, making them immediately due and payable. In addition, holders of the 3% Debentures may seek to force the Company into a proceeding under Chapter-11 of the Bankruptcy Code.
     Senior Secured Notes. On October 30, 2009, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Trico Shipping, issued $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Senior Secured Notes. These notes have a final bullet maturity of November 1, 2014 with no scheduled amortization payments. Interest is payable on May 1 and November 1 and accrues at a rate of 11.875% per annum. The Senior Secured Notes are not callable for three years and are subject to a declining prepayment premium until November 2013 after which they can be repaid at par. The Senior Secured Notes are secured by the assets and earnings of Trico Supply AS, and its subsidiaries, including Trico Shipping, DeepOcean AS and CTC Marine Projects, Ltd. (the “Trico Supply Group”) and the proceeds from the sale of these assets. The Senior Secured Notes are guaranteed by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Trico Supply AS, and by Trico Supply’s direct and indirect subsidiaries (other than Trico Shipping) and Trico Marine Services, Inc., Trico Cayman and Trico Holdco (the “Guarantors”). The Senior Secured Notes are pari passu in right of payment with all existing and future senior debt of Trico Shipping and the Guarantors (excluding Trico Marine Services) and senior to all existing and future subordinated debt of Trico Shipping and the Guarantors (excluding Trico Marine Services), including any intercompany debt; except that debt under the U.S. Credit Facility will be senior in right of payment to the Company’s guarantee of the Senior Secured Notes. The Senior Secured Notes are subject to certain prepayment provisions related to the sale of assets if the proceeds from these sales are not reinvested within six months. The Senior Secured Notes may be put to the Company at 101% of face value in the event of a Change of Control as defined in the indenture.

Table of Contents

     The Senior Secured Notes restrict Trico Supply and its direct and indirect subsidiaries from incurring additional indebtedness or paying dividends to the parent of Trico Supply unless the consolidated leverage ratio, which includes certain intercompany indebtedness, is less than 3.0:1 subsequent to the incurrence of the additional indebtedness. The Senior Secured Notes also limit the ability of Trico Supply and its subsidiaries from paying interest on existing intercompany debt agreements to Trico Marine Services and certain of its subsidiaries unless the fixed charge coverage ratio is less than 2.5:1. However, payments of up to $5 million by year to Trico Marine Services may be made for payment of general corporate, overhead and other expenses. As of June 30, 2010, payments in the amount of $1.1 million have been made by Trico Supply under this provision.
     The indenture provides that each of the following is an event of default: default for 30 days (5 days during the forbearance period as defined below) in the payment when due of interest; default in the payment when due (at maturity, upon redemption or otherwise) of the principal of, or premium, if any, on, the Senior Secured Notes; failure for 30 days after notice to the borrower by the Trustee or the holders of at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the Senior Secured Notes then outstanding voting as a single class to comply with any of the other agreements in the indenture governing the Senior Secured Notes or any security document or the occurrence of any event of default under any mortgage, equipment pledge or other security document; default under any mortgage, indenture or instrument under which there may be issued or by which there may be secured or evidenced any indebtedness, if that default: (i) is caused by a failure to make any payment when due at the final maturity of such indebtedness; or (ii) results in the acceleration of such indebtedness prior to its express maturity, and, in each case, the principal (or face) amount of any such indebtedness, together with the principal (or face) amount of any other indebtedness with respect to which an event described herein has occurred, aggregates $20.0 million or more ($5 million or more during the forbearance period); a default under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility which is caused by a failure to make any payment when due at maturity or results in the acceleration of such indebtedness prior to its express maturity; and if certain significant subsidiaries (excluding the Guarantors: Trico Marine Services, Trico Holdco, and Trico Cayman, during the forbearance period) within the meaning of the bankruptcy law commences a voluntary case, consents in writing to the entry of an order for relief against it in an involuntary case, consents in writing to the appointment of a custodian of it or for all or substantially all of its property, makes a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or admits in writing it generally is not paying its debts as they become due.
     If any event of default occurs and is continuing, the Trustee, by notice to the Company, or the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the then outstanding Senior Secured Notes, by notice to the Company and the Trustee, may declare all the Senior Secured Notes to be due and payable immediately.
     Within 210 days of the issuance date of the Senior Secured Notes (October 30, 2009), the Company was required to file a registration statement with the SEC to effect the exchange of the issued notes for replacement notes covered by the registration statement and not subject to restrictions on transfer. If the registration statement is not effective within 270 days of the original issuance date of the Senior Secured Notes, which may be extended in certain circumstances, the Company will be required to pay additional interest on the Senior Secured Notes of 0.25% per annum initially up to a maximum of 0.50% per annum. The Company did not file the registration statement as required on May 31, 2010 which has resulted in a 0.25% increase in the interest rate. A further increase of an additional 0.25% occurred on July 31, 2010 when the Company did not have an effective registration in place. In accordance with the accounting guidance for contingent interest, the Company recorded $1.6 million as “Interest Expense” in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations as it is probable that the additional interest will be paid. Upon the filing of a registration statement and the declaration of the registration statement as effective by the SEC, the additional 0.50% in interest will no longer be in effect.
     On June 25, 2010, Trico Shipping and the Guarantors entered into the first supplemental indenture with Deutsche Bank, as trustee (the “First Supplemental Indenture”), to the Senior Secured Notes which became effective following the receipt of the requisite consents of the holders and the payment of a consent fee of 0.25% of the total principal amount of the Senior Secured Notes at the time of the amendment (equal to $1.0 million). An additional 0.25% payment will be due 45 days following the effective date of the amendment.
     The First Supplemental Indenture modifies certain terms and conditions of the indenture. Certain of these changes are effective for the forbearance period while certain other changes are permanent. The forbearance period commenced on June 17, 2010 and expires on the earlier of June 17, 2011 and the effective date of a plan of reorganization related to Trico Marine Services, Trico Holdco and/or Trico Cayman subsequent to the filing of a bankruptcy case under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.
     The First Supplemental Indenture, among other things, (i) waives certain defaults and events of default related to a voluntary bankruptcy case undertaken by Trico Marine Services, Trico Holdco, and/or Trico Cayman pursuant to Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code during the forbearance period, (ii) waives certain defaults and events of default related to indebtedness issued by

Table of Contents

Trico Marine Services including acceleration of this indebtedness and nonpayment of interest and/or principal during the forbearance period, (iii) adds a minimum liquidity financial covenant that requires Trico Supply and its subsidiaries to maintain a minimum liquidity of at least $20 million at each month end during the forbearance period, (iv) adds a minimum LTM consolidated cash flow covenant at each month end during the forbearance period, (v) increases the amount of indebtedness that can be issued and secured by the collateral of the Senior Secured Notes from $450 million to $465 million, (vi) limits the amount of funds that can be paid to Trico Other during the forbearance period to $5 million, and (vii) permanently eliminates the ability to transfer any proceeds related to the cancellation of the last four VS-470 vessels under construction to Trico Other.
     Under the terms of the Senior Secured Notes, the Company’s business has been effectively split into two groups: (i) Trico Supply, where substantially all of its subsea services business and all of its subsea protection business resides along with its North Sea towing and supply business and (ii) Trico Other, whose business is comprised primarily of the Company’s non-North Sea towing and supply businesses. Trico Other has the obligation, among other things, to pay the debt service related to the 8.125% Debentures, the 3% Debentures, the U.S. Credit Facility, and the 6.11% Notes and to pay the majority of corporate related expenses while Trico Supply has the obligation to make debt service payments related to the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. Under the terms of the Senior Secured Notes, the ability of Trico Supply to provide funding on an ongoing basis to Trico Other is limited by restrictions on Trico Supply’s ability to pay dividends and principal and interest on intercompany debt unless certain financial measures are met. Other than an annual reimbursement of up to $5 million related to the reimbursement of corporate expenses, a one-time $5 million restricted payment basket, and certain carve outs related to the sale of one vessel, the Company does not expect Trico Supply to be able to transfer additional funds to Trico Other in the foreseeable future. During the forbearance period for the Senior Secured Notes, the total amount transferred is limited to $5.0 million. During the first six months of 2010, a total of $3.5 million was transferred from Trico Supply to Trico Other under the one-time $5 million restricted payment basket and approximately $1.1 million was transferred related to the $5 million annual reimbursement for corporate expenses.
     Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. In conjunction with the issuance of the Senior Secured Notes, the Company entered into the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility with Trico Shipping as the borrower.
     On June 21, 2010, Trico Shipping entered into the Second Amendment to Credit Agreement and Forbearance Agreement (the “Second Amendment”), which provided a forbearance from enforcement of remedies and waives any defaults arising from the failure of the Company to make a scheduled interest payment on its 8.125% Debentures and certain related matters, including a potential voluntary bankruptcy filing by the Company and certain of its subsidiaries. The Second Amendment also amends the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility, to, among other things, (i) increase the interest rate by 2% during the forbearance period, (ii) permit the incurrence of additional indebtedness by Trico Shipping, (iii) revise the manner in which certain prepayments are applied to scheduled commitment reductions, and (iv) add financial covenants relating to minimum cash and minimum consolidated cash flow. The Second Amendment became effective on June 30, 2010. The forbearance period and financial covenants are the same as those for the Senior Secured Notes.
     On June 29, 2010, Trico Shipping entered into the Third Amendment to Credit Agreement and Forbearance Agreement (the “Third Amendment”) to provide for the addition of a term loan facility (the “Term Loan Facility”) to be provided by affiliates of Tennenbaum Capital Partners, LLC, in addition to the originally issued revolving loans (the “Revolving Loan Facility”). In conjunction with the issuance of the Term Loan Facility, the Revolving Loan Facility was reduced to $15.0 million with quarterly amortizations of approximately $2.3 million beginning on October 1, 2010. In connection with the reduction in capacity under this facility, the Company included a $0.6 million write-off of deferred financing costs in its consolidated statements of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. The Revolving Loan Facility will expire on December 31, 2011. Interest is payable on the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Loan Facility at the Eurodollar rate designated by the British Bankers Association plus 5.0% and is subject to an additional utilization fee of 3.0%, payable quarterly in arrears, if the facility is more than 50% drawn. An additional 2.0% is payable during the forbearance period. Up to $10 million of the facility may be used for letters of credit.
     On July 23, 2010, Trico Shipping entered into the Fourth Amendment to Credit Agreement, which provided for the granting of certain additional liens to the Collateral Agent under certain circumstances.
     The Term Loan Facility includes up to $50 million in Tranche A Term Loans and up to $15 million in Tranche B Term Loans (collectively, the “Term Loans”). Proceeds of the Term Loans may be used (i) to pay fees and expenses relating to the Third Amendment and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility, (ii) for general corporate and working capital purposes and (iii) to repay outstanding revolving loans. The Tranche A Term Loans are available in up to two borrowings (not including the borrowing on the date of the Third Amendment) for six months following the date of the Third Amendment, such availability being subject to certain conditions, including the delivery to the lenders of certain additional documents and legal opinions. The Tranche B Term Loans are available in one borrowing until March 31, 2011, such availability being subject to certain conditions, including the termination and

repayment in full (and cash collateralization of letters of credit) of the Revolving Loan Facility and delivery to the lenders of certain additional documents and legal opinions. On the date of the Third Amendment, Trico Shipping borrowed approximately $28 million of Tranche A Term Loans, which were used (i) to repay the revolving lenders in connection with the reduction of the Revolving Loan Facility to $15 million, (ii) to pay fees and expenses relating to the Third Amendment and (iii) for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Term Loans mature on January 31, 2014 and will bear interest at the initial rate of 13.5% per annum until June 30, 2013 and 14.5% per annum thereafter. Undrawn amounts under the Term Loan Facility are subject to a fee equal to 1.5% per annum until December 31, 2010 and 2.5% per annum thereafter. The Term Loans may be prepaid as follows provided no prepayments may be made prior to January 1, 2011: (i) from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011, $20 million of Term Loans may be prepaid without premium with any further amounts prepaid during such period being subject to a 5% prepayment premium, (ii) from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012, $20 million of Term Loans may be prepaid without premium with any further amounts prepaid during such period being subject to a 3% prepayment premium and (iii) from January 1, 2013 and thereafter, prepayments may be made without premium. Additionally, the Third Amendment amended certain of the restrictive covenants, including those relating to the ability of Trico Shipping and certain of its affiliates to make dividends or investments. In addition, on August 16, 2010, the Company and Trico Shipping each agreed not to draw on this availability prior to December 31, 2010. See Note 18.
     As of June 30, 2010, the Company had outstanding letters of credit under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility of $7.8 million with various expiration dates through August 2011 for securing performance under certain subsea services contracts.
     The Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility subjects the Company’s subsidiaries that are parties to the agreement to certain customary non-financial covenants including, but not limited to, affirmative and negative covenants. Payments under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility may be accelerated following certain events of default, including, but not limited to, failure to make payments when due, noncompliance with covenants, breaches of representations and warranties, commencement of insolvency proceedings, occurrence of certain changes of control, and defaults under other debt agreements which permit the holders to declare the indebtedness due and payable prior to stated maturity provided the aggregate amount of indebtedness affected is at least $5 million. The Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility also cross defaults to the U.S. Credit Facility.
     6.11% Notes. In 1999, TMI issued $18.9 million of notes due 2014 to finance construction of two supply vessels, of which $5.0 million is outstanding at June 30, 2010. The notes are guaranteed by the Company and the U.S. Maritime Administration and secured by first preferred mortgages on two vessels. Failure to maintain the Company’s status as a Jones Act company would constitute an event of default under such notes.

6. Derivative Instruments
     As discussed in Note 5, the Company’s 8.125% Debentures provide the holder with a conversion option, which if exercised after May 15, 2011, entitles the holder to a make-whole interest payment that is indexed to the U.S. Treasury Rate. Because the terms of this embedded option are not clearly and closely related to the debt instrument, it represents an embedded derivative that must be accounted for separately. Under authoritative guidance for derivative instruments and hedging activities, the Company is required to bifurcate the embedded derivative from the host debt instrument and record it at fair value on the date of issuance, with subsequent changes in its fair value recorded in the consolidated statement of operations. The conversion option in the 3% Debentures is settled in cash and potentially stock and therefore is not required to be separately accounted for as a derivative as the value of the consideration is determined solely by the price of the stock. The warrants issued in the Exchange were also derivative instruments and required to be recorded as a liability due to the net-cash settlement terms included in the Exchange Agreements. Changes in fair value were re-measured in each subsequent period based upon the Company’s stock price each quarter the warrants were outstanding. All of the warrants were exercised in 2009 and are no longer outstanding.
     For the debentures, the estimate of fair value was determined through the use of a Monte Carlo simulation lattice option-pricing model that included various assumptions at December 31, 2009 and the Company’s updated fair value projection at June 30, 2010 (see Note 7 for further discussion). The 6.5% Debentures were exchanged for the 8.125% Debentures in May 2009. The coupon and the amortization of the discount on the debt will yield an effective interest rate of approximately 11.3% on the 8.125% Debentures and yielded approximately 11.2% on the 6.5% Debentures. The variation in the Company’s stock price as well as the passage of time are the primary factors influencing the change in value of the derivatives and their impact on the Company’s net income (loss). Variations in the Company’s stock price result in non-cash unrealized gains and losses being recognized in future periods for the debentures and such amounts could be material.
     On January 1, 2009, the Company adopted a newly issued accounting standard regarding disclosure of derivative instruments and hedging activities. The new standard requires entities that use derivative instruments to provide qualitative disclosures about their objectives and strategies for using such instruments, as well as any details of credit-risk-related contingent features contained within derivatives. It also requires entities to disclose additional information about the amounts and location of derivatives located within the financial statements, how the provisions of derivative instruments and hedging activities have been applied, and the impact that hedges have on an entity’s financial position, financial performance and cash flows. The tables below reflect (i) Fair Values of Derivative Instruments in the Balance Sheets and (ii) the Effect of Derivative Instruments on the Statements of Operations (in thousands).

7. Fair Value Measurements
     On January 1, 2009, the Company adopted a newly issued accounting standard for fair value measurements of all non-financial assets and liabilities, including the fair value measurements used in assessing impairment of tangible and intangible assets. At June 30,

17


Table of Contents

2010, the Company recognized impairments related to certain tangible and intangible assets that required the use of non-recurring fair value measurements. These charges are recognized under “Impairments” in the Statements of Operations and were all measured using Level 3 inputs. The Company recognized a $10.2 million impairment write down of intangible assets related to its trade names in subsea services based on a “relief from royalty” valuation methodology. The fair value for intangible assets, after consideration of the impairment charge, at June 30, 2010 was $92.0 million. See Note 4 for further discussion. The Company also recognized a $5.0 million impairment charge related to an acquired asset representing the value of a CTC Marine contract. See Note 14 for further discussion. The fair value determination for this impairment was based upon the reassessment of the value of the acquired asset as a result of the facts presented at a second quarter 2010 arbitration hearing. The remaining fair value at June 30, 2010 was $3.6 million. The Company also recorded $69.0 million of impairment charges related to vessels currently under construction by Tebma. The fair values were based on appraised values for similar completed vessels less the estimated costs to complete construction, as well as an estimated value for certain vessel related equipment. The remaining fair value for the vessels and equipment at June 30, 2010 was $34.0 million. See Note 14 for further discussion.
     The accounting standard for fair value measurements provides a framework for measuring fair value and requires expanded disclosures regarding fair value measurements. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received for an asset or the exit price that would be paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The accounting standard established a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs, where available. The following summarizes the three levels of inputs required as well as the assets and liabilities that the Company values using those levels of inputs.
    Level 1 — Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
 
    Level 2 — Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
 
    Level 3 — Unobservable inputs that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions.
     Financial liabilities subject to fair value measurements on a recurring basis are as follows (in thousands):

     The estimated fair values of financial instruments have been determined by the Company using available market information and valuation methodologies described below. However, considerable judgment is required in interpreting market data to develop the estimates of fair value. Accordingly, the estimates presented herein may not be indicative of the amounts that the Company could realize in a current market exchange. The use of different market assumptions or valuation methodologies may have a material effect on the estimated fair value amounts.
     Cash, cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable. The carrying amounts approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

     Debt. The fair value of the Company’s fixed rate debt is based partially on quoted market prices as well as prices for similar debt based on recent market transactions.
     The carrying amounts and fair values of debt were as follows (in thousands):

     As discussed in Note 6, the Company’s conversion feature contained in its 8.125% Debentures and the prior 6.5% Debentures is required to be accounted for separately and recorded as a derivative financial instrument measured at fair value. The estimate of fair value was determined through the use of a Monte Carlo simulation lattice option-pricing model at December 31, 2009. As of December 31, 2009, there were no assumptions used in the valuation model for the 6.5% Debentures as they were exchanged for the 8.125% Debentures in May 2009. At June 30, 2010, the Company reviewed the assumptions that were previously used. As a result of the Company’s closing price of $0.50 on such date and an expected increased discount rate, the Company revalued the embedded derivative at $0.1 million. The following table sets forth a reconciliation of changes in the fair value of the Company’s derivative liability as classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy (in thousands).

     In May 2009, the existing holders of the 6.5% Debentures entered into the Exchange Agreements exchanging their 6.5% Debentures for 8.125% Debentures. See Note 5 for more information.
     Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed using the if-converted method for the 8.125% Debentures and using the treasury stock method for the 3% Debentures and the 6.5% Debentures. The scheduled principal amortizations for the 8.125% Debentures can be paid either in stock or cash based upon the Company’s election. However, if the 8.125% Debentures are converted at the option of the holders prior to maturity, the bondholders will be paid in stock.
     The Company’s 3% Debentures and 6.5% Debentures (through May 2009 only) were not dilutive as the average price of the Company’s common stock was less than the conversion price for each series of the debentures during the presented periods they were outstanding. As the principal amount for the 3% Debentures can only be settled in cash, they are not considered in the diluted earnings per share. Although the Company had the option of settling the principal amount of 6.5% Debentures in either cash, stock or a combination of both, management’s intention at that time was to settle the amounts when converted with available cash on hand, through borrowings under the Company’s existing lines of credit or other refinancing as necessary.

10. Stock-Based Compensation
     The Company has stock-based compensation plans, which are described in more detail in Note 14 to the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in the 2009 Form 10-K. Net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 included $1.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively, of stock-based compensation gains compared to $1.1 million and $1.8 million of expenses, respectively, for the same three and six month periods of 2009. The Company records all of its stock based compensation costs as general and administrative expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. As of June 30, 2010, there was $0.6 million of total unrecognized compensation costs related to unvested stock-based compensation that is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 0.9 years. The Company expects that its total fixed stock-based compensation gains for the year ended December 31, 2010 will total approximately $0.7 million. The gains primarily result from the reversal of previously recognized compensation expense associated with restricted stock forfeited in the second quarter of 2010.
     On April 28, 2010, the Company granted stock appreciation awards (“SARs”) and phantom stock awards (“phantom stock”) to each independent member of the Board of Directors, executives and certain key employees. The exercise price of $2.39 for the SARs was based on the Company’s closing stock price on the date of the grant. See the table below.

11. Taxes
     The Company’s income tax expense/(benefit) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 was $(7.1) million and $15.8 million compared to $(3.6) million and $(18.7) million for the comparable prior year periods. The income tax expense/(benefit) for each period is primarily associated with the Company’s U.S. federal, state and foreign taxes. The Company’s tax expense/(benefit) for the three and six months ending June 30, 2010 differs from that under the statutory rate primarily due to nondeductible interest expense in the United States as a result of the 6.5% Debenture exchange described in Note 5, the one-time expense related to the Norwegian Supreme Court ruling on February 12, 2010 (described below) and state and foreign taxes. The Company’s effective tax rate is subject to wide variations given its structure and operations. The Company operates in many different taxing jurisdictions with differing rates and tax structures. Therefore, a change in the Company’s overall plan could have a significant impact on the estimated rate. At June 30, 2009, the Company’s tax benefit differed from that under the statutory rate primarily due to tax benefits associated with the Norwegian Tonnage Tax Regime and a change in law enacted on March 31, 2009 (described below) and state and foreign taxes.
     Since the Company currently has no U.S. operations, the history of negative earnings from these operations and the emphasis to expand the Company’s presence in growing international markets constitutes significant negative evidence substantiating the need for a full valuation allowance against the U.S. net deferred tax assets, including the current deferred tax assets, as of June 30, 2010. The Company will use cumulative profitability and future income projections as key indicators to substantiate subsequent release of the valuation allowance. This will result in an increase in additional paid-in-capital at the time the valuation allowance is reduced. If the Company’s future U.S. operations are profitable, it is possible the Company will release the valuation allowance at some future date.
     The Company conducts business globally and, as a result, one or more of its subsidiaries files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state and foreign jurisdictions. In the normal course of business, the Company is subject to examination by taxing authorities worldwide, including such major jurisdictions as Norway, Mexico, Brazil, Nigeria, Angola, Hong Kong, China, United Kingdom, Australia and the United States. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal, state and local, or non-U.S. income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2003.

     The accounting for income taxes prescribes a minimum recognition threshold a tax position is required to meet before being recognized in the financial statements. As of December 31, 2009, the Company recognized $2.4 million in uncertain tax positions and $2.0 million in penalties and interest. During the six months ended June 30, 2010, the Company recognized $0.4 million in uncertain tax positions, penalties and interest. The entire balance of unrecognized tax benefits, if recognized, would affect the Company’s effective tax rate. The Company recognizes interest and penalties accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense.
     Norwegian Tonnage Tax legislation was enacted as part of the 2008 Norwegian budgetary process. At this time, new tonnage tax regime was applied retroactively to January 1, 2007 and was similar to other European Union tonnage tax regimes. As a result, all shipping and certain related income, but not financial income, was exempt from ordinary corporate income tax and subjected to a tonnage-based tax. Unlike the previous regime, where the taxation was only due upon a distribution of profits or an outright exit from the regime, the new regime provided for a tax exemption on profits earned after January 1, 2007.
     As part of the legislation, the previous tonnage tax regime covering the period from 1996 through 2006 was repealed. Companies that were in the then current regime, and entered into the new regime, would be subject to tax at 28% for all accumulated untaxed shipping profits generated between 1996 through December 31, 2006 in the tonnage tax company. Under the original provisions, two-thirds of the liability (NOK 251 million, $38.7 million at June 30, 2010) was payable in equal installments over 10 years. The remaining one-third of the tax liability (NOK 126 million, $19.4 million at June 30, 2010) could be met through qualified environmental expenditures.
     Under the initial legislation enacted, any remaining portion of the environmental part of the liability not expended at the end of ten years would be payable to the Norwegian tax authorities at that time. In 2008, the ten year limitation was extended to fifteen years. On March 31, 2009, the need to invest in environmental measures within fifteen years was abolished. As a result, the Company recognized a one-time tax benefit in the first quarter of 2009 earnings of $18.6 million related to the change. Although qualifying expenditures were still required, there was no time constraint to make these expenditures before it would become payable to the Norwegian tax authorities.
     On February 12, 2010, the Norwegian Supreme Court ruled that the transitional rules, whereby the untaxed profits under the old regime became taxable upon entrance into the new regime, were unconstitutional. As a result, the Company received $9.3 million in cash refunds related to tax payments made in 2008 and 2009 pursuant to the transitional regime that was ruled unconstitutional. This refund and related interest was received by the Company in March 2010.
     As a result of the unconstitutionality ruling and lack of new tax regulations as of March 31, 2010, the distribution tax regime in place prior to the 2008 Tonnage Tax Legislation is presumed to apply again. Consequently, the Company recorded a deferred tax liability of approximately $59.8 million and $21.2 million of deferred tax expense as of June 30, 2010 related to the calculated gains under the transition rules. These taxes are not due until earnings are distributed from one of the Company’s Norwegian tonnage tax entities.
     In response to the Supreme Court Ruling, the Norwegian Ministry of Finance introduced amendments to the tonnage tax regulations that were approved and signed into law on June 25, 2010. The amendments include two options: a voluntary settlement or a distribution regime. Under the voluntary regime, 10% of the settlement account (two-thirds of the gain calculated on transition to the new regime in 2007, NOK 251 million) is to be paid as tax. Companies that do not elect voluntary settlement of the tax liability will be subject to continued taxation as under the old tonnage tax regime. This implies a 28% taxation of untaxed profits upon distributions to shareholders outside the tonnage tax regime or at exit from the tonnage tax regime. The possibility to waive one-third of the tax liability by investing in environmental measures was abolished. As a result, the whole gain (NOK 376.9 million) calculated at the time of entry into the new tonnage tax regime at the end of 2007 forms the basis for the future distribution tax. The election to enter the voluntary regime would be made on the Company’s applicable 2010 year-end tax return filed during the second quarter of 2011. Although the Company would seek to avail itself of this benefit, the Company’s current financial situation and liquidity concerns may preclude it from electing into the voluntary regime. As a result, the Company will continue to account for this potential liability under the disclosure regime until it is certain that it can avail itself of the benefit or actual election.
12. Employee Benefit Plans
     The annual costs and liabilities under the Norwegian defined benefit pension plans are determined each year based on actuarial assumptions. The components of net periodic benefit costs related to the Company’s Norwegian defined benefit pension plans were as follows (in thousands):

     The Company’s contributions to the Norwegian defined benefit plans totaled $0.8 million and $1.7 million for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010. The Company’s contributions for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009 totaled $0.7 million and $1.4 million, respectively.
     Certain of the Company’s United Kingdom employees are covered by the Merchant Navy Officers Pension Fund (the “MNOPF Plan”), a non-contributory, multiemployer defined benefit pension plan. Plan actuarial valuations are determined every three years. During the second quarter of 2010, the Company was notified that the most recent valuation resulted in a funding deficit of approximately $3.3 million. The Company recognized costs of $3.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and $0.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively, for the MNOPF Plan.
     The Company’s United Kingdom employees are covered by a non-contributory multi-employer defined benefit plan. Contributions to this plan were $0.2 million and $0.4 million for each of the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010 and $0.1 million for each of the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009.
13. Investment in EMSL
     Beginning January 1, 2010, in accordance with new authoritative guidance for variable interest entities, the Company no longer consolidates its investment in EMSL. Because the Company holds a 49% ownership interest, EMSL is now accounted for under the equity method. There was no gain or loss recognized in connection with the deconsolidation of EMSL. As of June 30, 2010, EMSL currently has total assets of $24.7 million and equity of $23.6 million. EMSL generated revenues of $3.5 million and net income of $0.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 and $5.8 million of revenues and a $3.4 million net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2010.
14. Commitments and Contingencies
     General. In the ordinary course of business, the Company is involved in certain personal injury, pollution and property damage claims and related threatened or pending legal proceedings. The Company does not believe that any of these proceedings, if adversely determined, would have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows. Additionally, the Company’s insurance policies may reimburse all or a portion of certain of these claims. At June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, the Company accrued for liabilities in the amount of approximately $5.1 million and $3.3 million, respectively, based upon the gross amount that management believes it may be responsible for paying in connection with these matters. Additionally, from time to time, the Company is involved as both a plaintiff and a defendant in other civil litigation, including contractual disputes. The Company does not believe that any of these proceedings, if adversely determined, would have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The amounts the Company will ultimately be responsible for paying in connection with these matters could differ materially from amounts accrued.
     Tebma. The Company is currently in a dispute with Tebma regarding the construction of the following six vessels for Trico Subsea AS: Hulls No. 120, 121, 128 and 129 (the “Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels”) and Hulls No. 118 and 119 (the “Two Remaining Tebma Vessels”). Trico Subsea AS and Tebma dispute whether the construction contracts of each of the vessels remains in effect; if not, by whom and for what reason the contracts were cancelled; and whether Trico Subsea AS has the right to call on refund guarantees issued for its benefit. The refund guarantees are issued by several Indian financial institutions in the aggregate amount of approximately $19 million with respect to the Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels, and in the aggregate amount of approximately $22 million with respect to the Two Remaining Tebma Vessels. Since July 1, 2010, (i) Trico Subsea AS has taken action to cancel the construction contracts for the Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels, and submitted draw requests to the financial

24


Table of Contents

institutions issuing the refund guarantees for the same vessels, in the approximate aggregate amount of $19 million, and (ii) Tebma has taken action to cancel the construction contracts for all six vessels, and initiated court proceedings in India to restrain Trico Subsea AS and the issuing financial institutions from acting in respect of the refund guarantees. The Company is in discussions with Tebma to resolve these disputes. In the case of the Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels, there is no assurance that the financial institutions that issued the refund guarantees will allow Trico Subsea AS to draw on such guarantees, in part or in whole, or that the total proceeds from such guarantees would equal approximately $19 million. In the case of the Two Remaining Tebma Vessels, there is no assurance that the vessel construction contracts remain in place, or that Tebma will complete the construction of such vessels. Further, there is no assurance that the refund guarantees on the Two Remaining Tebma Vessels, which have expiration dates and need to be periodically renewed, will continue to be renewed and be available if called upon by Trico Subsea AS. In connection with the commencements of these disputes during the second quarter, the Company reassessed the carrying value of these assets for impairment, as defined by accounting guidance for long-lived assets. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to undiscounted future net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset from its use or eventual disposition. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. As a result of its assessment, the Company recognized an impairment of $69.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 on the Two Remaining Tebma Vessels and the Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels. The fair values were based on appraised values for similar completed vessels less the estimated costs to complete construction, as well as an estimated value for certain vessel related equipment. The remaining fair value for the vessels and equipment at June 30, 2010 was $34.0 million. To the extent the Company is unable to resolve these disputes in a manner satisfactory to the Company, or if there is further deterioration in market conditions affecting the value of the underlying vessels and equipment, the Company could be subject to further impairments to these assets in future periods and such amounts could be material.
     Saipem. Prior to their acquisition by the Company, CTC Marine entered into a sub-contract (“the Sub-contract”) dated March 30, 2007 with Saipem S.p.A (“Saipem”), an Italian-registered company. Saipem had previously been contracted by oil and gas operator Terminale GNL Adriatico Srl (“ALNG”) to lay, trench and backfill an offshore pipeline in the northern Adriatic Sea. The Sub-contract related to the trenching and backfilling work. Work on location commenced on February 13, 2008 and was completed on May 5, 2008. The project took longer than originally anticipated and the target depth of cover for the pipeline was not met for the whole of the route due to CTC Marine encountering significantly different soils on the seabed to those which had been identified in the geotechnical survey documentation. In conjunction with the acquisition of CTC Marine in May of 2008, the Company recorded an asset in purchase accounting related to the estimated fair value of this claim as of the acquisition date. In the summer of 2008, CTC Marine submitted a contractual claim to Saipem in relation to the different soils. Saipem in turn made submissions to ALNG. ALNG rejected Saipem’s submission and Saipem has, in turn, refused to pay CTC Marine the additional sums. The Sub-contract is governed by English law and specifies that disputes that are incapable of resolution must be referred to arbitration before three Arbitrators under the International Chamber of Commerce rules. Arbitration is a commercial rather than a court remedy. The decision of the Arbitral Tribunal is enforceable in the courts of all major nations.
     CTC Marine submitted a Claim to Arbitration on April 9, 2009 based upon the Sub-contract for payment of 7.7 million Sterling ($11.6 million as of June 30, 2010) plus interest and costs. Saipem sought an extension to the time for their answer and provided this on June 4, 2009, together with a Counterclaim for Liquidated Damages in terms of the Sub-contract. CTC Marine submitted its reply to the Counterclaim as well as amendments to the request. Based on a reassessment of the value of the asset, as a result of preliminary mediation efforts, the Company recognized a $2.0 million impairment charge in December 2010. The parties made arguments to the Arbitral Tribunal of three, comprising one nomination from each side and an independent chairman, during a three-week arbitration hearing in June 2010. The parties presented final submissions in July 2010 and the Arbitral Tribunal is expected to announce its decision in November 2010. Based on a reassessment of the value of the acquired asset as a result of the facts presented at the arbitration hearing, the Company recognized a $5.0 million impairment charge for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. The remaining amount expected to be recoverable by the Company as of June 30, 2010 was approximately $3.6 million and is reflected in "Prepaid expenses and other current assets" in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet.
     Brazilian Tax Assessments. On March 22, 2002, the Company’s Brazilian subsidiary received a non-income tax assessment from a Brazilian state tax authority for approximately 52.0 million Reais ($28.9 million at June 30, 2010). The tax assessment is based on the premise that certain services provided in Brazilian federal waters are considered taxable by certain Brazilian states as transportation services. The Company filed a timely defense at the time of the assessment. In September 2003, an administrative court upheld the assessment. In response, the Company filed an administrative appeal in the Rio de Janeiro administrative tax court in October 2003. In November 2005, the Company’s appeal was submitted to the Brazilian state attorneys for their response. On December 8, 2008, the final hearing took place and the Higher Administrative Tax Court ruled in favor of the Company. On April 13, 2009, the State Attorney’s Office filed its appeal with the Special Court of the Higher Administrative Tax Court. The Company filed its response on June 9, 2009. The Company is under no obligation to pay the assessment unless and until such time as all appropriate appeals are exhausted. The Company intends to vigorously challenge the imposition of this tax. Many of the Company’s competitors in the marine industry have also received similar non-income tax assessments. Broader industry actions have been taken against the tax in the form of a suit filed at the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court seeking a declaration that the state statute attempting to tax the industry’s activities is unconstitutional. This assessment is not income tax based and is therefore not accounted for under authoritative accounting guidance for income taxes that prescribes a minimum recognition threshold a tax position is required to meet before being recognized in the financial statements. The Company has not accrued any amounts for the assessment of the liability.
     During the third quarter of 2004, the Company received a separate non-income tax assessment from the same Brazilian state tax authority for approximately 4.8 million Reais ($2.7 million at June 30, 2010). This tax assessment is based on the same premise as

25


Table of Contents

noted above. The Company filed a timely defense in October 2004. In January 2005, an administrative court upheld the assessment. In response, the Company filed an administrative appeal in the Rio de Janeiro administrative tax court in February 2006. On January 22, 2009, the Company filed a petition requesting for the connection of the two cases, and asking for the remittance of the case to the other Administrative Section that ruled favorable to the Company in the other case mentioned above. The President of the Higher Administrative Tax Court is analyzing this request. This assessment is not income tax based and is therefore not accounted for under authoritative accounting guidance for income taxes that prescribes a minimum recognition threshold a tax position is required to meet before being recognized in the financial statements. The Company has not accrued any amounts for the assessment of the liability.
     If the Company’s challenges to the imposition of these taxes (which may include litigation at the Rio de Janeiro state court) prove unsuccessful, current contract provisions and other factors could potentially mitigate the Company’s tax exposure. Nonetheless, an unfavorable outcome with respect to some or all of the Company’s Brazilian state tax assessments could have a material adverse affect on the Company’s financial position and results of operations if the potentially mitigating factors also prove unsuccessful.
     Operating Leases. On September 30, 2002, one of the Company’s subsidiaries, TMO, entered into a master bareboat charter agreement (the “Master Charter”) with General Electric Capital Corporation (“GECC”) for the sale-lease back of three crew boats. The lease agreements have various term dates with the latest term ending in 2015. All obligations under the Master Charter are guaranteed by TMA, and the Company. The Company has provided GECC with a pledge agreement (the “Pledge Agreement”) and $1.7 million cash deposit pursuant to the Master Charter. The deposit has been classified as “Other Assets” in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet.
     The Master Charter also contains cross-default provisions, which could be triggered in the event of certain conditions, including a bankruptcy filing, or the default and acceleration of the Company or certain subsidiaries with respect to any loan agreement which results in an acceleration of such loan agreement. Upon any event of default under the Master Charter, GECC could elect to, among other things, terminate the Master Charter, repossess and sell the vessels, and require the Company or certain subsidiaries to make up to a $9.7 million stipulated loss payment to GECC. If the conditions of the Master Charter requiring the Company to make a stipulated loss payment to GECC were met, such a payment could impair the Company’s liquidity.

16. Recent Accounting Standards
     In January 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued an amendment to the disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. The update requires entities to disclose the amounts of and reasons for significant transfers between Level 1 and Level 2, the reasons for any transfers into or out of Level 3, and information about recurring Level 3 measurements of purchases, sales, issuances and settlements on a gross basis. The update also clarifies that entities must provide (i) fair value measurement disclosures for each class of assets and liabilities and (ii) information about both the valuation techniques and inputs used in estimating Level 2

26


Table of Contents

and Level 3 fair value measurements. Except for the requirement to disclose information about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the reconciliation of recurring Level 3 measurements on a gross basis, the update is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2009. The requirement to separately disclose purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements of recurring Level 3 measurements is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2010. The Company’s adoption did not have a material effect on the disclosures contained in its notes to the consolidated financial statements.
17. Supplemental Condensed Consolidating Financial Information
     On October 30, 2009, Trico Shipping issued the Senior Secured Notes. The Senior Secured Notes are unconditionally guaranteed on a senior basis by Trico Supply AS and each of the other direct and indirect parent companies of Trico Shipping (other than the Company) and by each direct and indirect subsidiary of Trico Supply AS other than Trico Shipping (collectively, the “Subsidiary Guarantors”). The Senior Secured Notes are also unconditionally guaranteed on a senior subordinated basis by the Company. The guarantees are full and unconditional, joint and several guarantees of the Senior Secured Notes. The Senior Secured Notes and the guarantees rank equally in right of payment with all of Trico Shipping’s and the Subsidiary Guarantors’ existing and future indebtedness and rank senior to all of Trico Shipping’s and the Subsidiary Guarantors’ existing and future subordinated indebtedness. The Company’s guarantee ranks junior in right of payment to up to $25 million principal amount of indebtedness under the U.S. Credit Facility. All other subsidiaries of the Company, either direct or indirect, have not guaranteed the Senior Secured Notes (collectively, the “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries”). Trico Shipping and the Subsidiary Guarantors and their consolidated subsidiaries are 100% owned by the Company.
     Under the terms of the indenture governing the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility, Trico Supply AS is restricted from paying dividends to its parent, and Trico Supply AS and its restricted subsidiaries (including Trico Shipping) are restricted from making intercompany loans to the Company and its subsidiaries (other than Trico Supply AS and its restricted subsidiaries).
     The following tables present the condensed consolidating balance sheets as of June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, and the condensed consolidating statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 and the condensed consolidating statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 of (i) the Company, (ii) Trico Shipping, (iii) the Subsidiary Guarantors, (iv) the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries, and (v) consolidating entries and eliminations representing adjustments to (a) eliminate intercompany transactions, (b) eliminate the investments in the Company’s subsidiaries and (c) record consolidating entries.
     The additional tables represent consolidating information for the Trico Supply Group as follows: the condensed consolidating balance sheets as of June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009 and the condensed consolidating statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 and the cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 of (i) Trico Shipping, (ii) the Subsidiary Guarantors, excluding the parent companies of Trico Supply AS, and (iii) consolidating entries and eliminations representing adjustments to (a) eliminate intercompany transactions, (b) eliminate the investments in the Company’s subsidiaries and (c) record consolidating entries. The purpose of these tables is to provide the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the group of entities which own substantially all of the collateral securing the Senior Secured Notes and are subject to the restrictions of the indenture. For purposes of this presentation, investments in consolidated subsidiaries are accounted for under the equity method.
     Prior periods have been prepared to conform to the Company’s current organizational structure.

18. Subsequent Events
     U.S. Credit Facility. On August 10, 2010, the Company executed Amendment No. 3 to the U.S. Credit Facility. For additional information, see Note 5.
     On August 16, 2010, the Company executed Amendment No. 4 to the U.S. Credit Facility. For additional information, see Note 5. In consideration of Amendment No. 4, the Company and Trico Shipping each agreed that, prior to December 31, 2010, Trico Shipping would not make any request pursuant to the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility that Tennenbaum provide any further term loans under Tennenbaum’s commitments thereunder, including any amounts otherwise available under Tranche A Term Loan.
     Forbearance Agreement for 8.125% Debentures. On August 16, 2010, the Company and the consenting holders holding not less than 51% of the outstanding principal amount of the 8.125% Debentures entered into the August Forbearance Agreement. Under the August Forbearance Agreement, each consenting holder agreed, among other things, not to (i) pursue any remedy (including, without limitation, the acceleration of any obligation owing in respect of the 8.125% Indenture and/or the 8.125% Debentures) against the Company under the 8.125% Debentures or the 8.125% Indenture for not making interest or principal payments as scheduled or within the applicable grace period, as applicable, or (ii) initiate, or have initiated on its behalf, any litigation or proceeding of any kind with respect to the 8.125% Debentures other than to enforce August Forbearance Agreement. Further, each consenting holder agreed to request that the trustee of the 8.125% Indenture not enforce remedies (including acceleration) pursuant to the terms of the 8.125% Debentures or the 8.125% Indenture until the August Forbearance Agreement has terminated. Under the August Forbearance Agreement, the Company shall not (and shall direct its subsidiaries not to) consummate any financing transaction or material transactions outside the ordinary course of business without providing the consenting holders and their advisors advance notice of at least 48 hours; provided that this restriction does not apply to, among other things, the granting of certain security interests or liens in collateral for the benefit of the secured parties under Trico Shipping’s outstanding notes and related indenture. The August Forbearance Agreement will terminate on the earlier to occur of (i) August 24, 2010, (ii) the breach of certain covenants, including the consummation of certain non-ordinary course transactions, or (iii) upon five business days written notice of termination from the consenting holders.
     Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. On July 23, 2010, the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility was amended to provide that if a grant of a security interest in any assets of Trico Supply AS or its subsidiaries that would have otherwise been required to have been granted under the indenture governing the Senior Secured Notes ceases to be required thereunder, Trico Supply AS and its subsidiaries will still be obligated under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility to grant a security interest securing the obligations in any such assets, with at least the same priority that would have otherwise been required.
     Notice of Delisting. On July 23, 2010, the Company received notice from the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Staff that the Company has not maintained a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share based upon the closing bid price for the last 30 consecutive business days for continued listing on the NASDAQ Stock Market under Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). If the Company can demonstrate compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for ten consecutive business days within 180 calendar days, the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Staff will provide the Company with written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed. In the event the Company does not regain compliance prior to the expiration of the grace period, it will receive written notification that its common stock (ticker symbol: TRMA) is subject to delisting.
     Cancellation of Tebma Contracts. The Company took action to cancel construction by Tebma of four new build MPSVs on July 15, 2010, which if effective would reduce its committed future capital expenditures to approximately $20 million for two remaining MPSVs. The Company is in discussions with Tebma to resolve these disputes. See discussion under the caption “Tebma” in Note 14.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
     Certain statements and information in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “intend,” “foresee,” “should,” “would,” “could” or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, which are generally not historical in nature. These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on us. While management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made, there can be no assurance that future developments affecting us will be those that we anticipate. All comments concerning our expectations for future revenues and operating results are based on our forecasts for our existing operations. Our forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from our historical experience and our present expectations or projections. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, those summarized below:
    our ability to retain and motivate management and key employees;
 
    our ability to continue to make payments when due, and to comply with our obligations, under our credit facilities and our other indebtedness;
 
    our ability to continue as a going concern;
 
    the outcome of our dispute with Tebma;
 
    our objectives, business plans or strategies, and projected or anticipated benefits or other consequences of such plans or strategies;
 
    our ability to obtain adequate financing on a timely basis and on acceptable terms;
 
    projections involving revenues, operating results or cash provided from operations, or our anticipated capital expenditures or other capital projects;
 
    overall demand for and pricing of our vessels;
 
    changes in the level of oil and natural gas exploration and development;
 
    uncertainties and risks relating to or caused by the April 2010 explosion and fire on a deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico drilling rig, the resulting losses and the U.S. Department of Interior moratorium on deepwater drilling;
 
    our ability to successfully or timely complete our various vessel construction projects;
 
    further reductions in capital spending budgets by customers;
 
    further declines in oil and natural gas prices;
 
    projected or anticipated benefits from acquisitions;
 
    increases in operating costs;
 
    the inability to accurately predict vessel utilization levels and day rates;
 
    variations in global business and economic conditions;
 
    the results, timing, outcome or effect of pending or potential litigation and our intentions or expectations with respect thereto and the availability of insurance coverage in connection therewith; and
 
    our ability to repatriate cash from foreign operations if and when needed.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
     Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations should be read in conjunction with the 2009 Form 10-K. Unless otherwise indicated, any reference to (i) “Notes” refers to the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included herein, (ii) “Gulf of Mexico” refers to the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and (iii) “Mexico” refers to the Mexican Gulf of Mexico.
Immediate Risks, Uncertainties, and Going Concern
     Our inability to meet our past and current commitments, and uncertainties associated with our ability to meet our other commitments as they come due, to comply with our debt covenants or to repay our outstanding debt raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our cash and credit capacity have not been sufficient to enable it to meet our obligations, and our forecasted cash and available credit capacity are not expected to be sufficient to meet our other commitments as they come due over the next twelve months.
     We did not make the approximately $8 million interest payment due on May 15, 2010 for the 8.125% secured convertible debentures due 2013 (the “8.125% Debentures”) prior to the expiration of the applicable 30-day grace period, the approximately $10.1 million principal payment due on August 1, 2010 for the 8.125% Debentures (for which there is no grace period) and the approximately $2.3 million interest payment due on July 15, 2010 for the 3% senior convertible debentures due 2027 (the “3% Debentures”). As a result, events of default have occurred under the 8.125% Debentures and the 3% Debentures. As described in the accompanying notes to our condensed consolidated financial statements and below, we have entered into a forbearance agreement with the holders of 51% of the outstanding principal amount of the 8.125% Debentures.
     In addition, we believe it is highly unlikely that we will remain in compliance in future periods with covenants requiring us to achieve financial thresholds, including an EBITDA threshold in the $25 million U.S. credit facility agreement (the “U.S. Credit Facility”), the 11 7/8% senior secured notes due 2014 (the “Senior Secured Notes”) issued by Trico Shipping AS (“Trico Shipping”) and Trico Shipping’s working capital facility (the “Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility”) and a liquidity threshold in Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. In particular, we expect that we may not be in compliance with financial covenants requiring us to achieve EBITDA targets measured over the trailing twelve months as specified in the U.S. Credit Facility, Senior Secured Notes and Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. If we fail to maintain compliance with these covenants under the various indentures and forbearance agreements, our creditors may take certain actions, including declaring the outstanding principal of the applicable debt to be due and payable immediately. In addition, our results of operations may limit Trico Shipping’s ability to access additional funds under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. In our current circumstances, if such indebtedness were accelerated, we would be unable to satisfy our obligations under the 8.125% Debentures, the 3% Debentures, the Senior Secured Notes, the 6.11% notes due 2014 (the “6.11% Notes”), the U.S. Credit Facility or the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. In an effort to avoid the acceleration of such indebtedness, we have entered into (i) a forbearance agreement with holders of the 8.125% Debentures, (ii) a First Supplemental Indenture with respect to the Senior Secured Notes, (iii) an amendment to the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility and (iv) an amendment to the U.S. Credit Facility. For additional information, see Notes 5 and 18.
     Our company, our financial advisor, Evercore Partners, and our restructuring advisor, AP Services, LLC (“AlixPartners”), are in discussions with some of our existing debt holders regarding restructuring certain of these obligations. While we have completed additional financing for both Trico Other and Trico Supply, our liquidity at both Trico Other (as defined in Note 2) and Trico Supply (as defined in Note 2) is limited and if unable to reach agreement within a limited time period with certain of our debt holders, we will need to commence a voluntary case in a United States Bankruptcy Court (the “Bankruptcy Court”) concerning each of us, Trico Marine Assets, Inc. (“TMA”), Trico Marine Operators, Inc. (“TMO”) Trico Marine Cayman, LP (“Trico Cayman”), Trico Marine International, Inc. (“TMI”) and Trico Holdco, LLC (“Trico Holdco”) prior to September 8, 2010 to avoid an event of default under the U.S. Credit Facility and cross-defaults under our other debt agreements. Additionally, even if agreements regarding debt restructuring are reached within the necessary time periods, we may need to undertake bankruptcy proceedings in order to implement the debt restructurings and/or achieve other changes to our cost structure. We may also be required to undertake bankruptcy proceedings as a result of our inability to meet our past,

current and future commitments. The credit and business risk profiles of we could be adversely affected by a bankruptcy filing which may have a materially adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
Overview
     We are an integrated provider of subsea services, subsea trenching and protection services and offshore supply vessels (“OSVs”) to oil and natural gas exploration and production companies that operate in major offshore producing regions around the world. Our subsea operations, including technologically advanced and often proprietary services performed in demanding subsea environments, represented approximately 88% of our revenues for the second quarter of 2010. The remainder of our revenue is attributable to our legacy towing and supply business. We operate through three business segments: (i) subsea services (ii) subsea trenching and protection and (iii) towing and supply.
     The revenues and costs for our subsea services segment primarily are determined by the scope of individual projects and in certain cases by multi-year contracts. Subsea services projects may utilize any combination of vessels, both owned and leased, and components of our non-fleet equipment consisting of remotely-operated vehicles (“ROVs”), installation handling equipment, and survey equipment. The scope of work, complexity, and area of operation for our projects will determine what assets will be deployed to service each respective project. Rates for our subsea services typically include a composite day rate for the utilization of a vessel and/or the appropriate equipment and personnel to service the project, as well as the crew. These day rates can be fixed or variable and are primarily influenced by the specific technical requirements of the project, the availability of the required vessels and equipment and the project’s geographic location and competition. Occasionally, projects are based on unit-rate contracts (based on units of work performed, such as miles of pipeline inspected per day) and occasionally through lump-sum contractual arrangements. In addition, we generate revenues for onshore engineering work, post processing of survey data, and associated reporting. The operating costs for the subsea services segment primarily reflect the rental or ownership costs for our vessels and equipment, crew compensation, supplies and marine insurance. Our customers are typically responsible for mobilization expenses and fuel costs. Variables that may affect our subsea services segment include the scope and complexity of each project, weather or environmental downtime, and water depth. Delays or acceleration of projects will result in fluctuations of when revenues are earned and costs are incurred but generally they will not materially affect the total amount of costs.
     The revenues and costs for our subsea trenching and protection segment are also primarily determined by the scope of individual projects. Based on the overall scale of the respective projects, we may utilize any combination of engineering services, assets and personnel, consisting of a vessel that deploys a subsea trenching asset, ROV and survey equipment, and supporting offshore crew and management. Our asset and personnel deployment is also dependent on various other factors such as subsea soil conditions, the type and size of our customer’s product and water depth. Revenues for our subsea trenching and protection segment include a composite daily rate for the utilization of vessels and assets plus fees for engineering services, project management services and equipment mobilization. These daily rates will vary in accordance with the complexity of the project, existing framework agreements with clients, competition and geographic location. The operating costs for this segment predominately reflect the rental of its leased vessels, the hiring of third party equipment (principally ROVs and survey equipment which we sometimes hire from our subsea services segment), engineering personnel, crew compensation and depreciation on subsea assets. The delay or acceleration of the commencement of customer offshore projects will result in fluctuations in the timing of recognition of revenues and related costs, but generally will not materially affect total project revenues and costs.
     The revenues for our towing and supply segment are impacted primarily by fleet size and capabilities, day rates and vessel utilization. Day rates and vessel utilization are primarily driven by demand for our vessels, supply of new vessels, our vessel availability, customer requirements, competition and weather conditions. The operating costs for the towing and supply segment are primarily a function of the active fleet size. The most significant of our normal direct operating costs include crew compensation, maintenance and repairs, marine inspection costs, supplies and marine insurance. We are typically responsible for normal operating expenses, while our contracts provide that customers are typically responsible for mobilization expenses and fuel costs.

Our Outlook
     We will need to commence a voluntary case in the Bankruptcy Court concerning each of us, TMA, TMO, Trico Cayman, TMI and Trico Holdco prior to September 8, 2010 to avoid an event of default under the U.S. Credit Facility and cross-defaults under our other debt agreements. Additionally, even if agreements regarding debt restructuring are reached within the necessary time periods, we may need to undertake bankruptcy proceedings in order to implement the debt restructurings and/or achieve other changes to our cost structure. We may also be required to undertake bankruptcy proceedings as a result of our inability to meet our past, current and future commitments. Our credit and business risk profiles could be adversely affected by a bankruptcy filing which may have a materially adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
     Our results of operations are highly dependent on the level of operating and capital spending for exploration and development by the energy industry, among other things. The energy industry’s level of operating and capital spending is substantially related to the demand for natural resources, the prevailing commodity price of natural gas and crude oil, and expectations for such prices. During periods of low commodity prices, our customers may reduce their capital spending budgets which could result in reduced demand for our services. Other factors that influence the level of capital spending by our customers which are beyond our control include: worldwide demand for crude oil and natural gas and the cost of exploring for and producing oil and natural gas which can be affected by environmental regulations, significant weather conditions, maintenance requirements and technological advances that affect energy and its usage.
     In addition to the macro level factors above, we believe the long-term impact of the oil spill in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico is likely to lead to increased standards of pipeline inspection, repair and maintenance which will result in an overall higher spending per well and increased demand for our subsea services on a global basis.
     For the remainder of 2010, we expect to continue to focus on the key areas discussed below. Our expectations are based on information currently available to us and assumptions made by us, including, among other things, that we will continue as a going concern and that any bankruptcy proceedings we commence will not impair our ability to run our business or require a change to our business focus. To the extent our underlying assumptions about or interpretations of available information prove to be incorrect, we may change our key areas of focus:
     Reduce our debt level and carefully manage liquidity and cash flow. Our substantial amount of indebtedness requires us to restructure our balance sheet to meet our capital expenditure, working capital and debt service requirements.
     In order to manage our immediate obligations, we are currently taking the following steps:

43


Table of Contents

    We, our financial advisor, Evercore Partners, and our restructuring advisor, AlixPartners, are in discussions with some of our existing debt holders regarding restructuring our indebtedness;
 
    We are conserving cash by minimizing capital expenditures and managing working capital; and
 
    We are pursuing the sale of additional vessels and other assets.
     Maximize our vessel utilization and our service spreads. We offer our customers a variety of subsea installation, construction, trenching and protection services using combinations of our equipment and personnel to maximize the earnings per vessel and to increase the opportunity to offer a differentiated technology service package. We continue to offer our subsea services and subsea trenching, protection and installation services through a combination of vessels chartered from third parties and owned vessels.
     Reduce exposure to a declining offshore towing and supply vessel business. Over time, we believe transitioning away from a low growth, commoditized towing and supply business toward specialized subsea services will result in improved operating results. As part of this transition, we are divesting non-core or underperforming towing and supply assets. In 2009, we sold eight OSVs, two platform supply vessels, and one anchor handling, towing and supply vessel (“AHTS”) for aggregate proceeds of approximately $73 million. During the first six months of 2010, we completed six vessel sales, four OSVs, one subsea platform supply vessel (“SPSV”) and one AHTS, for net proceeds of $19.3 million. In July 2010, we sold another OSV for $1.0 million. We will continue to look for opportunities to divest non-core or underperforming towing and supply assets. We will also continue to position our towing and supply vessels in markets where we believe we have a competitive advantage or that have positive fundamentals.
Market Outlook Demand for our Vessels and Services
     Each of our operating segments experienced different impacts from the current overall economic slowdown, crisis in the credit markets, and decline in oil prices. In all segments, however, we have seen increased exploration and production spending in Brazil, Mexico and the Asia Pacific regions and will continue to focus our efforts on increasing market presence in those regions for the remainder of 2010. For 2010, we expect no significant overall change from 2009 in exploration and production spending, offshore drilling worldwide, and construction spending, but we anticipate overall subsea spending to increase based on unit growth in new subsea construction and a growing base of installed subsea trees.
     Subsea Services. Although some projects were postponed as a result of volatile commodity prices, we did not have any contracts canceled in 2009. Most of these postponed projects will take place in 2010 and 2011. Given that a majority of our subsea services work includes inspection, maintenance and repair required to maintain existing pipelines, and such services are covered by operating expenditures rather than capital expenditures, we believe the outlook for our subsea services will remain consistent with the levels of subsea spending occurring in 2009. We also have not seen any material decline in pricing for subsea services contracts.
     Subsea Protection and Trenching. For the remainder of 2010, we expect demand for our subsea protection and trenching services to be similarly driven by the increase in overall spending on subsea services. However, we believe that certain markets may be softer due to seasonality in this area and therefore are mitigating such seasonality by mobilizing our assets to regions less susceptible to seasonality. We generally expect a weak market in the North Sea, but we believe there is opportunity to develop a meaningful presence in emerging growth areas for this segment including the Asia Pacific regions, Australia, the Middle East, the Mediterranean and Brazil. In addition, this segment participates in the renewable energy industry, which we expect as a result of worldwide “green” initiatives to grow in 2010 and beyond.
     Towing and Supply. During 2009, we experienced significant declines in utilization and day rates in the Gulf of Mexico and North Sea driven by reduced exploration and production spending as a result of low commodity prices coupled with an increased supply of newly built vessels. We have taken appropriate measures to reduce our cost structure as well as significantly reduce our presence in this segment. Our current view of the worldwide OSV market is that the combination of reduced customer spending on offshore drilling coupled with the likely level of newly built vessels to be delivered in the remainder of 2010 and in 2011 will cause prices and utilization in most markets, including the North Sea, Asia and Mexico, to remain very weak. We no longer have a presence in the OSV segment in the Gulf of Mexico.
Other Items
     Tebma. We are currently in a dispute with the Tebma shipyard in India regarding the construction of the following six vessels for Trico Subsea AS: Hulls No. 120, 121, 128 and 129 (the “Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels”) and Hulls No. 118 and 119 (the “Two Remaining Tebma Vessels”). Trico Subsea AS and Tebma dispute whether the construction contracts of each of the vessels remains in effect; if not, by whom and for what reason the contracts were cancelled; and whether Trico Subsea AS has the right to call

on refund guarantees issued for its benefit. The refund guarantees are issued by several Indian financial institutions in the aggregate amount of approximately $19 million with respect to the Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels, and in the aggregate amount of approximately $22 million with respect to the Two Remaining Tebma Vessels. Since July 1, 2010, (i) Trico Subsea AS has taken action to cancel the construction contracts for the Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels, and submitted draw requests to the financial institutions issuing the refund guarantees for the same vessels, in the approximate aggregate amount of $19 million, and (ii) Tebma has taken action to cancel the construction contracts for all six vessels, and initiated court proceedings in India to restrain Trico Subsea AS and the issuing financial institutions from acting in respect of the refund guarantees. We are in discussions with Tebma to resolve these disputes. In the case of the Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels, there is no assurance that the financial institutions that issued the refund guarantees will allow Trico Subsea AS to draw on such guarantees, in part or in whole, or that the total proceeds from such guarantees would equal approximately $19 million. In the case of the Two Remaining Tebma Vessels, there is no assurance that the vessel construction contracts remain in place, or that Tebma will complete the construction of such vessels. Further, there is no assurance that the refund guarantees on the Two Remaining Tebma Vessels, which have expiration dates and need to be periodically renewed, will continue to be renewed and be available if called upon by Trico Subsea AS. In connection with the commencements of these disputes during the second quarter, we reassessed the carrying value of these assets for impairment, as defined by accounting guidance for long-lived assets. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to undiscounted future net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset from its use or eventual disposition. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. As a result of this assessment, we recognized an impairment of $69.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 on the Two Remaining Tebma Vessels and the Four Cancelled Tebma Vessels. The fair values were based on appraised values for similar completed vessels less the estimated costs to complete construction, as well as an estimated value for certain vessel related equipment. The remaining fair value for the vessels and equipment at June 30, 2010 was $34.0 million. To the extent we are unable to resolve these disputes in a manner satisfactory to us, or if there is further deterioration in market conditions affecting the value of the underlying vessels and equipment, we could be subject to further impairments to these assets in future periods and such amounts could be material.
     Asset Sales. During the first six months of 2010, we sold four OSVs, one AHTS and one SPSV for net proceeds of $19.3 million. A portion of the proceeds was used to repay or service indebtedness. In July 2010, we sold an additional OSV for $1.0 million which did not require a debt prepayment.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
     A non-GAAP financial measure is generally defined by the SEC as one that purports to measure historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows, but excludes or includes amounts that would not be so adjusted in the most comparable GAAP measures. We measure operating performance based on adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, which is calculated as operating income or loss before depreciation and amortization, impairments, stock-based compensation, and gain/loss on sale of assets. Our measure of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, which may limit its usefulness as a comparative measure.
     We believe that the GAAP financial measure that adjusted EBITDA most directly compares to is operating income or loss. Because adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income or loss, net income or loss, cash flows provided by operating, investing and financing activities, or other income or cash flows statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP.
     We believe that presentation of adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to our investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations because adjusted EBITDA is a financial metric used by management (i) to monitor and evaluate the performance of our business operations, (ii) to facilitate management’s internal comparison of our historical operating performance of our business operations, (iii) to facilitate management’s external comparisons of the results of our overall business to the historical operating performance of our competitors, (iv) to analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments and acquisitions, which may be more easily evaluated in terms of adjusted EBITDA, (v) as a key metric in the calculation of awards under the Incentive Bonus Plan and (vi) to plan and evaluate future operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments.

Including the EMSL vessels, our average number of vessels would have been 6.4, 9.0 and 19.9 for SPSVs/MPSVs, the North Sea Class and OSVs, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 6.7, 9.0 and 22.2 for SPSVs/MPSVs, the North Sea Class and OSVs, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2010.
Overall Results
     For the three months ended June 30, 2010, we reported a net loss of $160.4 million on revenues of $144.6 million compared to net income attributable to Trico Marine Services, Inc. of $4.1 million on revenues of $179.7 million for the same period in 2009. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, we reported a net loss of $238.9 million on revenues of $240.3 million compared to net income attributable to Trico Marine Services, Inc. of $3.4 million on revenues of $301.6 million for the same period in 2009. Our operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the same prior year periods reflect a decline in revenue and a higher operating loss primarily as a result of lower utilization in the subsea services and subsea protection and trenching segments, the towing supply segment as we exited the Gulf of Mexico region, fewer vessels due to the sale of eleven vessels primarily in the second

half of 2009 and six in 2010 and the deconsolidation of EMSL in 2010. Operating loss is also higher due to a reduction in gains from the sale of assets recorded in 2010 compared to 2009 as well as impairments as a result of our June 30, 2010 assessment of intangible assets, reassessment of the value of an acquired asset and the Tebma dispute. The 2010 results also included higher non-operating items for interest expense and foreign exchange loss related primarily to the Senior Secured Notes. Foreign exchange loss was also affected by certain intercompany notes. The non-operating items also included reorganization costs in 2010 and refinancing costs in 2009. The six months ended June 30, 2009 also included an $11.3 million gain on conversion of debt.

     Revenues decreased $3.2 million and $6.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 as compared to the same periods in the prior year. Operating loss increased $74.4 million and $72.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 as compared to the same periods in the prior year. The decreased revenues and increased operating losses are a result of the decrease in vessels. Average vessel count decreased in MSVs by 1.7 and 1.4 vessels for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to June 30, 2009 and by 1.6 and 1.3 vessels for the same period for the SPSVs/MPSVs. Utilization rates were also significantly lower for the SPSVs/MPSVs. For the quarter over quarter comparison, the utilization rate was 50% in 2010 compared to 80% in 2009. For the year-to-date comparison, the utilization rate was 55% in 2010 compared to 74% in 2009. Increased year-to-date costs were also a result of repairs associated with the Deep Endeavour and higher impairments associated with intangibles and the Tebma dispute. The 2009 impairment was related to Volstad.

     Revenues decreased $17.5 million and $21.7 million for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010. Operating income (loss) decreased $14.4 million and $13.2 million for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010. Decreases in revenues and operating expenses are primarily due to a lower utilization rate of 85% in the second quarter of 2010 compared to 98% in the second quarter of 2009. The utilization rate was 68% for the six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to 95% for the same period last year. Compared to the prior year periods, general and administrative expenses were reduced for the six months ended June 30, 2010 due to cost reduction efforts but increased for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 as a result of higher legal costs. 2010 impairment charges in the amount of $5.0 million were related to our assessment of the facts presented at a second quarter 2010 arbitration hearing regarding an acquired asset representing the value of a CTC Marine contract.

     Revenues significantly decreased by $14.5 million and $33.4 million for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010. Operating income (loss) decreased by $19.1 million and $20.1 million for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010 as compared to the prior year period. The decreases in revenues and expenses are related to exiting the Gulf of Mexico region during 2009 and the deconsolidation of EMSL in 2010. There were also fewer vessels operating in 2010 as we sold eleven vessels in 2009 of which one was in EMSL. In 2010, we sold an additional four offshore supply vessels and one anchor handling, towing and supply vessel for a gain of approximately $5.2 million. The decrease in operating income (loss) is primarily related to a reduction in the amount of gains from the sale of assets recorded in 2010 compared to 2009.

changes from the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the same periods in 2009 were due to weakening market conditions in Southeast Asia for our towing and supply vessels.
     Interest expense, net of amounts capitalized. Interest expense increased $9.9 million and $21.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2009. The increase in interest expense for the three and six month periods was due to higher interest rates primarily as a result of the Senior Secured Notes which have a rate of 11.875%, the contingent interest on the Senior Secured Notes due to the registration statement filing requirement and a reduction in capitalized interest due to the status of our construction in progress. We capitalize interest related to vessels currently under construction to the extent we are continuing to make progress towards completion. Capitalized interest for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 totaled $4.4 million and $7.6 million, respectively, and $4.9 million and $9.7 million, respectively, for the same period in 2009.
     Unrealized gain on mark-to-market of embedded derivative. The authoritative guidance for derivative instruments and hedging activities requires valuations for our embedded derivatives within our previous 6.5% Debentures and our new 8.125% Debentures. The estimated fair value of the embedded derivatives will fluctuate based upon various factors that include our common stock closing price, volatility, United States Treasury bond rates and the time value of options. The fair value for the 8.125% Debentures will also fluctuate due to the passage of time. We used the Monte Carlo simulation lattice option-pricing model to calculate the fair value of the derivatives for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009. On June 30, 2010, we reviewed the assumptions that were previously used. As a result of our closing price of $0.50 on such date and an expected increased discount rate, we revalued the 8.125% Debentures at $0.1 million which resulted in a $0.6 million and $5.9 million non-cash unrealized gain for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively. As of June 30, 2009, an unrealized gain of $1.0 million on the 8.125% Debentures was recognized for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009. The embedded derivative on our previous 6.5% Debentures was revalued on the date of the exchange and the unrealized gain (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 was ($0.5) million and $0.4 million, respectively.
     Gain on conversions of debt. During 2009, various holders of our previous 6.5% Debentures converted $24.5 million principal amount of the debentures, collectively, for a combination of $6.9 million in cash related to the interest make-whole provision and 605,759 shares of our common stock based on an initial conversion rate of 24.74023 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of debentures. We recognized gains on conversions of $0.6 million and $11.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively. There were no conversions of debt in 2010.
     Refinancing costs. In connection with the exchange of our 6.5% Debentures for the 8.125% Debentures, we incurred refinancing costs primarily related to investment banker and legal costs that are expensed as incurred under modification accounting which totaled $6.2 million for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009. There were no costs associated with this transaction in 2010.
     Reorganization costs. We incurred reorganization costs in the amount of $9.1 million for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010 as a result of pursuing measures to improve our liquidity and capital structure. The costs were primarily legal and consulting expenses. These types of expenses were not incurred during 2009.
     Foreign exchange gain (loss). Foreign exchange gain (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 was $(47.2) million and $(66.7) million, respectively, an difference of $50.2 million and $69.2 million compared to the same periods in 2009 due primarily to the $400 million Senior Secured Notes that are U.S. Dollar denominated on NOK functional currency books and intercompany notes between DeepOcean ASA, CTC Marine Projects Ltd, Trico Shipping and Trico Supply. Please see Item 7A, “Quantitative and Qualitative Market Risk” contained in the 2009 Form 10-K for further discussion on our foreign currency exposure.
     Income tax (benefit) expense. Our income tax expense (benefit) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 was ($7.1) million and $15.8 million compared to $(3.6) million and $(18.7) million for the comparable prior year periods. The income tax expense (benefit) for each period is primarily associated with our U.S. federal, state and foreign taxes. Our tax expense (benefit) for the three and six month periods ending June 30, 2010 differs from that under the statutory rate primarily due to nondeductible interest expense in the United States as a result of the 6.5% Debenture exchange described in Note 5, the one-time expense related to the Norwegian Supreme Court ruling on February 12, 2010 and state and foreign taxes. Our effective tax rate is subject to wide variations given our structure and operations. We operate in many different taxing jurisdictions with differing rates and tax structures. Therefore, a change in our overall plan could have a significant impact on the estimated rate. At June 30, 2009, our tax benefit differed from that under the statutory rate primarily due to tax benefits associated with the Norwegian Tonnage Tax Regime and a change in law enacted on March 31, 2009, our permanent reinvestment of foreign earnings and state and foreign taxes.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Overview
     Our financial statements were prepared on a going concern basis at June 30, 2010, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The content below, in Note 2 “Risks, Uncertainties, and Going Concern” and Note 18 “Subsequent Events” in our accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and in “Immediate Risks, Uncertainties and Going Concern” above addresses important factors affecting our financial condition, liquidity and capital resources and debt covenant compliance. Amounts in this section reflecting U.S. Dollar equivalents for foreign denominated debt amounts are translated at currency rates in effect at June 30, 2010.
     At June 30, 2010, we had available cash of $32 million. As of June 30, 2010, payments due on our contractual obligations during the next twelve months were approximately $1.0 billion. Included in these amounts for the next twelve months are $97 million in interest payments which includes payments of approximately $24 million on each of May 1 and November 1 related to the Senior Secured Notes with an additional $4 million each period due to the forbearance agreement and payments of approximately $8 million on each of May 15 and November 15 related to the 8.125% Debentures. There is also $818 million of debt that is repayable during the next twelve months due to the defaults on the 8.125% Debentures and the 3% Debentures, our expectation that we will not be in compliance with the Senior Secured Notes and Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility, the cross defaults to the U.S. Credit Facility, and the bankruptcy requirement in the U.S. Credit Facility. The remaining amount of payments due in the next twelve months for our contractual obligations are related to $97 million of time charter obligations, $29 million of vessel construction obligations and approximately $3 million of other operating expenses such as operating leases and pension obligations. In July 2010, one additional OSV was sold for $1.0 million in net proceeds. This vessel was included in assets held for sale in our Balance Sheet at June 30, 2010.
     Our working capital and cash flows from operations are directly related to fleet utilization and vessel day rates. We require continued access to capital to fund ongoing operations, vessel construction, discretionary capital expenditures and debt service. Please see Note 2 in our condensed consolidated financial statements. Our ability to generate or access cash is subject to events beyond our control, such as, expenditures for exploration, development and production activity, global consumption of refined petroleum products, general economic, financial, competitive, legislative, regulatory and other factors. In light of the current financial turmoil, we may be exposed to credit risk relating to certain of our customers. Depending on the market demand for our vessels and other growth opportunities that may arise, we may require additional debt or equity financing.
     Due to changes in the financial condition of our company, the availability under certain credit facilities has been limited. With respect to the commitment letter entered into between us and Tennenbaum DIP Opportunity Fund, LLC (“Tennenbaum”) on June 8, 2010 (the “Commitment Letter”), based on discussions with Tennenbaum, we believe that the conditions to borrowing under the existing commitment may not be satisfied. While $22 million remains available under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility (subject to conditions we may not be able to meet), we and Trico Shipping each agreed not to draw on this availability prior to December 31, 2010 and we may not be able to access these funds at any time in the future. We are in discussions regarding alternative financing for Trico Supply, but there can be no assurance that any additional financing can be obtained or obtained on terms acceptable to us. For additional information, see Notes 5 and 18.
Liquidity Sufficiency
     Our cash and credit capacity have not been sufficient to enable us to meet our obligations and our forecasted cash and available credit capacity are not expected to be sufficient to meet our other commitments as they come due over the next twelve months. In addition, we are not in compliance with our debt covenants and we do not expect that we will be able comply with our debt covenants going forward.
     Our interest payment obligations are concentrated in the months of May and November with approximately $24 million of interest due on the Senior Secured Notes on each of May 1 and November 1 and approximately $8 million of interest due on the 8.125% Debentures on each of May 15 and November 15. During the forbearance period, we agreed to pay an additional 2.00% interest on the Senior Secured Notes which increases the semi-annual interest payments by approximately $4.0 million. Additionally, the terms of our credit agreements and the 8.125% Debentures require that some or all of the proceeds from certain asset sales, including proceeds from certain prior asset sales, be used to permanently reduce outstanding debt which could substantially reduce the amount of proceeds we retain and, if we must use proceeds from prior asset sales to reduce outstanding debt, reduce our available cash.

Table of Contents

     In our 2009 Form 10-K and our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2010, we indicated that our forecasted cash and available credit capacity were not expected to be sufficient to meet our commitments as they came due over the subsequent twelve months and that we would not be able to remain in compliance with our debt covenants without completing certain actions to increase our level of liquidity. We continue to pursue a number of actions including (i) active discussions with various parties regarding potential transactions, (ii) active discussions with some of our existing debt holders regarding restructuring certain obligations, (iii) selling additional assets, (iv) accessing cash in certain of our subsidiaries, (v) minimizing our capital expenditures, (vi) obtaining waivers or amendments from our lenders, (vii) effectively managing our working capital and (viii) improving our cash flows from operations in order to increase our liquidity to levels sufficient to meet our commitments. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, we have made progress toward completing certain of these actions. These actions include receiving approximately $19.3 million in net proceeds from asset sales, receiving a dividend of $1.0 million from EMSL and receiving a $9.3 million tax refund at Trico Shipping. There was $22 million of availability on our credit facilities as of June 30, 2010, but drawing on this availability remains subject to completion of certain deliverables. Additional liquidity will need to be generated from some or all of the previously mentioned actions in order for us to have sufficient liquidity to meet our commitments as they come due. There can be no assurance that sufficient liquidity can be raised from one or more of these actions and/or that these actions can be completed within the period needed to meet certain obligations. Furthermore, meeting our obligations and commitments may leave us with little or no liquidity to operate our business. Additionally, our ability to refinance any of our existing indebtedness on commercially reasonably terms may be materially and adversely impacted by our financial condition and the current credit market conditions. If we are unable to meet our commitments as they come due because we cannot complete some or all of the above actions, we will be in default under our credit agreements, which in turn, could potentially constitute an event of default under all of our outstanding debt agreements. If this were to occur, all of our outstanding debt could become callable by our creditors. Due to the defaults mentioned above on the 8.125% Debentures and the 3% Debentures, our expectation that it will not be in compliance with the Senior Secured Notes and Trico Shipping Working Capital

Facility, the cross defaults to the U.S. Credit Facility, and the bankruptcy requirement in the U.S. Credit Facility, all of our debt has been classified as current as of June 30, 2010.
     Our inability to meet our past and current commitments and uncertainties associated with our ability to meet our other commitments as they come due, comply with our debt covenants or repay our outstanding debt raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements and other financial information included in this report do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from the uncertainty associated with our ability to meet our obligations as they come due.

     As of June 11, 2010, the previous covenants were replaced with new covenants with the first measurement period being June 30, 2010 for minimum EBITDA. Also in June 2010, the borrowing availability on the U.S. Credit Facility was increased up to $25.0 million. The borrowing availability is currently limited to $24.5 million pending acceptable resolution of certain due diligence items. We were in compliance with our debt covenants at June 30, 2010. Please see Item 1A “Risk Factors” located in our 2009 Form 10-K and below in Part II, Item 1A for more details about potential risks involving these facilities.
     In addition to the covenants described above, our 8.125% Debentures limit our ability to incur additional indebtedness if the consolidated leverage ratio applicable to the 8.125% Debentures exceeds 4.0:1 at the time of incurrence of such indebtedness. The Senior Secured Notes restrict Trico Supply and its direct and indirect subsidiaries from incurring additional indebtedness unless the consolidated leverage ratio, which includes certain intercompany indebtedness, is less than 3.0:1 subsequent to the incurrence of additional indebtedness. The Senior Secured Notes also limit the ability of Trico Supply and its subsidiaries to pay interest on existing intercompany debt agreements to Trico Marine Services and certain of its subsidiaries unless the fixed charge coverage ratio is less than 2.5:1.
     For a more detailed discussion of the risks outlined above, please see “Risk Factors” in our 2009 Form 10-K and below in Part II, Item 1A, as well as Notes 2, 5, and 18.
     Cross Default and Cross Acceleration Provisions. Our debt agreements contain significant cross default and/or cross acceleration provisions pursuant to which a default under one agreement can cause events of default under the other agreements and enable the lenders or debenture holders (or a trustee or agent acting on their behalf) under the other agreements to accelerate repayment of our obligations under these agreement. These cross default/cross acceleration provisions include, but are not limited to, the following:
  The 8.125% Debentures and the 3% Debentures contain provisions where the debt holders may declare an event of default and require immediate repayment if repayment of certain other indebtedness in a principal amount in excess of $30 million or its foreign currency equivalent has been accelerated and not remedied within 30 days after notice thereof.
 
  The U.S. Credit Facility allows the lenders to accelerate such indebtedness and require immediate repayment if we or any of our subsidiaries were to be in default on more than $1 million in other indebtedness (other than the 8.125% Debentures, 3% Debentures, the Senior Secured Notes or the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility unless, in the case of the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility, such debt is accelerated), the effect of which is to cause or permit the holders of such indebtedness to cause (without regard to any notice) any such indebtedness to become due prior to its stated maturity.
 
  The Senior Secured Notes allow the lenders to accelerate such indebtedness if there is a default on other indebtedness (other than debt of, or guaranteed by, us, Trico Holdco and Trico Cayman during the forbearance period) and that default: (i) is caused by a failure to make any payment when due at the final maturity of such indebtedness; or (ii) results in the acceleration of such indebtedness prior to its express maturity, and, in each case, the principal (or face) amount of any such indebtedness, together with the principal (or face) amount of any other indebtedness with respect to which an event described herein has occurred, aggregates $20.0 million or more. During the forbearance period, the cross default provision does not apply to either the 8.125% Debentures or 3.0% Debentures. The lenders may also accelerate such indebtedness if there is a default under the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility which is caused by a failure to make any payment when due at final maturity or results in the acceleration of such indebtedness prior to its express maturity.
 
  The Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility allows the lenders to accelerate such indebtedness and require immediate repayment if there is an event of default under the U.S. Credit Facility (other than during the forbearance period) that is continuing or if we or any of our subsidiaries were to be in default on more than $10 million ($5 million during the forbearance period) in other indebtedness (other than debt of, or guaranteed by, us, Trico Holdco and Trico Cayman during the forbearance period), including the Senior Secured Notes, the effect of which is to cause or permit the holders of such indebtedness (or trustee or agent on their behalf) to cause (without regard to any notice) any such indebtedness to become due prior to its stated maturity.

Our Capital Requirements
     Our ongoing capital requirements arise primarily from our need to improve and enhance our current service offerings, invest in upgrades of existing vessels, acquire new assets and provide working capital to support our operating activities and service debt. Generally, we provide working capital to our operating locations through two primary business locations: the North Sea and the U.S. The North Sea and the U.S. business operations have been capitalized and are financed on a stand-alone basis. Debt covenants and U.S. and Norwegian tax laws make it difficult for us to efficiently transfer the financial resources from one of these locations for the benefit of the other.

(1)   Excludes fresh-start debt premium of $0.2 million and unamortized discounts on the Senior Secured Notes, 3% Debentures and 8.125% Debentures of $13.0 million, $26.9 million and $9.5 million, respectively, at June 30, 2010.
 
(2)   All of our debt was classified as current as of June 30, 2010. We are in default on the 8.125% Debentures due to, among other things, non-payment of interest and principal within applicable grace periods. We did not make the July 15, 2010 interest payment

Table of Contents

    on the 3% Debentures prior to the expiration of the 30-day grace period, which provides the trustee and/or certain debt holders the ability to declare an event of default and accelerate the debt. The Senior Secured Notes and Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility are subject to forbearance agreements which require us to remain in compliance with certain requirements including minimum liquidity and minimum consolidated cash flow. We believe it is highly unlikely that we will remain in compliance in future periods with covenants requiring us to achieve financial thresholds, including an EBITDA threshold in the U.S. Credit Facility, Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility and a liquidity threshold in the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. In particular, we expect that we may not be in compliance with financial covenants requiring us to achieve specific EBITDA targets measured over the trailing twelve months. The U.S. Credit Facility is classified as current due to the requirement that we file for bankruptcy by September 8, 2010. The 6.11% Notes are classified as current due to the requirement that Trico Marine Services, as guarantor under the 6.11% Notes, is required to file bankruptcy by September 8, 2010 to avoid an event of default under the U.S. Credit Facility.
 
(3)   Primarily includes the semi-annual interest payments on Senior Secured Notes, the 8.125% Debentures, the 3% Debentures and the 6.11% Notes.
 
(4)   For the purpose of this calculation, amounts assume interest rates on floating rate obligations remain unchanged from levels at June 30, 2010, throughout the life of the obligation.
 
(5)   Reflects committed expenditures for two new build MPSVs and does not reflect the future capital expenditures budgeted for periods presented which are discretionary. On July 15, 2010, we took action to cancel the construction of four additional new build MPSVs for which we had construction contracts with Tebma, and previously committed expenditures for these vessels are not included in these amounts. In the first six months of 2010, we sold four OSVs, one SPSV and one AHTS for net proceeds of $19.3 million.
     At June 30, 2010, we have estimated capital expenditures during the next twelve months of $29 million, which includes the construction of the two new vessels reflected above under vessel construction obligations plus discretionary improvements to our existing aging vessels and general non-marine capital expenditures.
Cash Flows
     The following table sets forth the cash flows for the periods presented (in thousands):

     Our primary sources of cash flow during the six months ended June 30, 2010 are net proceeds from asset sales of $19.3 million, a dividend from EMSL of $1.0 million, a tax refund at our Trico Shipping subsidiary of $9.3 million, and proceeds from the issuance of credit facilities of $70.4 million. The primary uses of cash were for the payments of credit facilities of $42.8 million and purchases of new build vessels and maintenance of other property and equipment of $31.5 million. During the six months ended June 30, 2010, our cash balance decreased $20.5 million to $32.5 million from $53.0 million at December 31, 2009.
     Net cash used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was $19.7 million, a decrease of $48.4 million from the same period in 2009. Significant components of cash used in operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2010 included a net loss of $238.9 million partially offset by $194.1 million of non-cash items and $25.2 million of changes in working capital and other asset and liability balances resulting in an increase of cash. Included in our operating cash flows for the quarter were $9.1 million of reorganization expenditures related to pursuing measures to improve our liquidity and capital structure.
     Net cash used in investing activities was $20.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared to $18.6 million for the same period in 2009. Our investing cash flows in 2010 primarily reflect $31.5 million of additions to property and equipment, $5.8

million related to the investment in unconsolidated affiliate as a result of the deconsolidation of EMSL, $3.9 million as a result of a decrease in restricted cash partially offset by $19.3 million of net proceeds from asset sales of six vessels in 2010 and $1.0 million for the EMSL dividend. Our investing cash flows in 2009 primarily reflect $48.8 million of additions to property and equipment partially offset by $30.0 million of proceeds from asset sales of six vessels in 2009.
     Net cash provided by financing activities was $21.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared to cash used of $74.4 million for the same period in 2009. Our 2010 amount primarily includes proceeds from the issuance of credit facilities in the amount of $70.4 million partially offset by payments of credit facilities of $42.8 million and debt refinancing costs related to additional funding received in the second quarter of 2010 of $6.0 million. The 2009 amount includes a dividend payment of $6.1 million to EMSL’s non-controlling partner, net repayments of debt of approximately $62.0 million, which includes $12.7 million related to the convertible debt exchange, and $6.2 million of refinancing costs related to the exchange.
Critical Accounting Policies
     Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations is based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in conformity with GAAP in the United States. The preparation of these statements requires that we make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. We base these estimates on historical experience and on assumptions that we consider reasonable under the circumstances; however, reported results could differ from the current estimates under different assumptions and/or conditions. We have disclosed the areas requiring the use of management’s estimates in Note 3 to our consolidated financial statements included in our 2009 Form 10-K.
Recent Accounting Standards
     See Note 16 for a listing of recent accounting standards.
Item 3.   Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
     There have been no material changes in our exposure to market risk during the first six months of 2010. See Item 7A, Quantitative and Qualitative Market Risk contained in the 2009 Form 10-K for further discussion.
Item 4.   Controls and Procedures
(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
     Disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) are those controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and that such information is also accumulated and communicated to management, including our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management, under the supervision and with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the most recent fiscal quarter reported on herein. Based on that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of June 30, 2010 because of the material weaknesses discussed below.
     We did not maintain an effective control environment. A control environment sets the tone of an organization, influences the control consciousness of its people, and is the foundation of all other components of internal control over financial reporting. Specifically, we did not maintain a sufficient complement of personnel with an appropriate level of accounting knowledge, experience and training commensurate with our financial reporting requirements. Also, we did not maintain a sufficient complement of personnel to provide for the proper preparation and review over period end financial reporting process controls as discussed below. Accordingly, management has concluded that this control deficiency constituted a material weakness. This control environment material weakness contributed to the material weaknesses discussed below and also could contribute to additional control deficiencies arising.
     We did not maintain effective controls over the period-end financial reporting process. Specifically, the following material weaknesses existed: (a) our controls over the preparation and review of account reconciliations were ineffective to provide reasonable assurance that account balances were complete and accurate and agreed to appropriate supporting detail and (b) our controls over journal entries, including consolidation, top-side and intercompany elimination entries, did not operate effectively to provide

reasonable assurance that they were appropriately recorded and prepared with sufficient support and documentation or that they were properly reviewed and approved for validity, accuracy and completeness. These control deficiencies resulted in audit adjustments to cash and cash equivalents, property and equipment, accumulated depreciation and amortization, accounts payable, depreciation and amortization, general and administrative, and interest expense accounts in the 2009 consolidated financial statements and if not remediated, could result in a misstatement to substantially all accounts and disclosures that would result in a material misstatement to the annual or interim consolidated financial statements that would not be prevented or detected. Accordingly, management has concluded that these control deficiencies constituted material weaknesses. The period-end financial reporting process material weaknesses contributed to the severity of the information technology general control deficiencies discussed below.
     We did not maintain effective controls over our information technology general controls. Specifically, access to critical financial application programs and data was not reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that key personnel had appropriate access commensurate with their assigned roles and responsibilities. Also, appropriate policies and procedures were not in place with respect to program changes and system security. These control deficiencies could result in a misstatement to substantially all accounts and disclosures that would result in a material misstatement to our interim or annual consolidated financial statements that would not be prevented or detected. Accordingly, management has concluded that these control deficiencies constituted a material weakness.
     We did not maintain an effective control over the remeasurement and/or translation of our intercompany notes. Specifically, effective controls were not in place to ensure that foreign exchange gains and losses and/or cumulative translation adjustment were appropriately calculated and recorded in the respective accounts. This control deficiency resulted in an audit adjustment to the 2009 consolidated financial statements and could result in a material misstatement to the aforementioned accounts and disclosures that would result in a material misstatement to our interim or annual consolidated financial statements that would not be prevented or detected. Accordingly, management has concluded that this control deficiency constituted a material weakness.
     In light of the material weaknesses described above, we performed additional procedures that were designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of (i) our financial reporting; and (ii) the preparation of the consolidated financial statements contained in this Quarterly Report. Accordingly, management believes that the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report fairly present, in all material respects, our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.
(b) Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
     As previously reported under Item 9A — Controls and Procedures in our 2009 Form 10-K, and as discussed above, management concluded that the internal control over financial reporting was not effective based on the material weaknesses identified. Management has continued to work on remediation efforts since the filing of that report. During the quarter ended June 30, 2010, there were no changes in internal control that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
(c) Management’s Remediation Plans
     Management has been addressing the material weaknesses described above in our internal control over financial reporting and its impact over disclosure controls and procedures and is committed to effectively remediating these deficiencies as expeditiously as possible. We have devoted significant time and resources to the remediation efforts.
     In order to remediate the material weaknesses described above, we are undertaking the following activities. We will continue to evaluate the effectiveness of our internal controls and procedures on an ongoing basis and will take further action as appropriate.
     During 2010, we hired a Chief Accounting Officer and Corporate Accounting Manager. Along with other members of management, these individuals will direct the necessary remedial changes to the overall design and implementation of internal controls over financial reporting to address the material weaknesses identified. Specifically, we have strengthened our written accounting and reporting policies and increased training to our accounting department employees with respect to the aforementioned policies.
     We have enhanced our period-end financial reporting by further automating our consolidation process. Integral to these automated processes are system controls that reduce the number of manual procedures associated with the consolidation process. We also reduced the number of corporate-level journal entries and recorded such entries at the appropriate entity level, thereby increasing the level of local entity level review and supervision associated with recordation of the entries. In addition, documentation related to the appropriate controls and procedures for the consolidation process has been modified and enhanced.

     With regard to information technology general controls, specifically the documentation of the procedures related to change management and segregation of duties, we revised our documentation over program changes and implemented a software tool to assist in better identifying system changes. The policy for segregation of duties access review has been updated to include better documentation of analysis and procedures performed during the review. Applicable policies and procedures are in place with respect to program changes and system security as well as access review.
     As part of our improvements to our period-end financial reporting, we have expanded controls over our processes for accounting for foreign currency gains and losses and cumulative translation adjustment, including the performance of an entity-wide analysis to test the reasonableness and accuracy of manual and system generated entries.
     We are committed to completing the implementation of our remediation action plan and effecting the necessary enhancements to our resources, policies and procedures to fully remediate the material weaknesses discussed above. These material weaknesses will not be considered remediated until (i) new resources are fully engaged and new processes are fully implemented, (ii) new processes are implemented for a sufficient period of time and (iii) we are confident that the new processes are operating effectively.

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings
     Please see Note 14 for a description of our material legal proceedings. In addition, we are a party to routine litigation incidental to our business, which primarily involves employment matters or claims for damages to vessels or equipment. Many of the other lawsuits to which we are a party are covered by insurance. We have established accruals for these other matters, and it is management’s opinion that the resolution of such litigation will not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position. However, a substantial settlement payment or judgment in excess of our cash accruals could have a material adverse effect on our consolidated results of operations or cash flows.
Item 1A. Risk Factors
     The updated liquidity and debt risk factors described below, should be read in conjunction with our risk factors disclosed in our 2009 Form 10-K.
     We have a substantial amount of indebtedness that we are unable to service and that contains covenants with which we are unable to comply.
     We are highly leveraged. As of June 30, 2010, our total indebtedness was $768.5 million, all of which was categorized as short term indebtedness and which represents approximately 105.9% of our capitalization. Our interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 was $19.2 million and $41.3 million, respectively.
     We did not make the approximately $8 million interest payment due on May 15, 2010 for the 8.125% Debentures prior to the expiration of the applicable 30-day grace period, the approximately $10.1 million principal payment due on August 1, 2010 for the 8.125% Debentures (for which there is no grace period) and the approximately $2.3 million interest payment due on July 15, 2010 for the 3% Debentures. As a result, events of default have occurred under our 8.125% Debentures and our 3% Debentures. In addition, we are not in compliance with certain of our debt covenants and do not expect that we will be able to comply with all our debt covenants in the future. We believe that it is highly unlikely that we will remain in compliance in future periods with covenants requiring us to achieve financial thresholds, including an EBITDA threshold in the U.S. Credit Facility, Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility and a liquidity threshold in the Senior Secured Notes and the Trico Shipping Working Capital Facility. We do not have a forbearance in place with the holders of our 3% Debentures, and those creditors may at any time take certain actions, including declaring the outstanding principal of the applicable debt to be due and payable immediately, or seeking to force us into a proceeding under Chapter 11 of the Bank
