I agree with Phone Wind. What the hell happened to "I earn X, so I spend Y". 2 of the biggest helicopter operators in the world have trashed their finances during a time over the last 15 years when it was not difficult to make a profit. Granted the last few years have been hard but where did all that money go that was earned while the sun was shining?

That's true and compounded with the fixation on ROCE. I remember being at Houston Towers budget planning sessions back in about 2004. It came in with BC and whoever his CFO was at the time (can't remember). I generally got on well with BC and had a lot of time for him but that was one that caused me some pain. The easiest way to get a high ROCE is to keep the CE down by leasing (then not recognised on Balance Sheets) or flogging on old 332L's & S61's rather than investing in new tech.

Ironically, by the time the rates supported the new tech that new strategy backfired by keeping more expensive assets on the B/S than our major competitor who took advantage at the downturn and EC225 groundings through Ch11 lease walk-aways.

The hugely expensive and opulent corporate office in Houston would certainly have accounted for a fair proportion of Bristow's revenue.
Senior management seem to think that Bristow was a multi billion $ international airline and spent accordingly.

I see the stock plunged again after trading finished yesterday to around 70 cents after the latest update on their filing.

Looks grim, legal firms appointed to assist Ďturnaroundí etc non payment of interest on unsecured bonds. Surely suppliers must be getting twitchy now?

Wonder how much of a battering it will take today?

Godot isn’t coming.

Appears Bristow’s are pushing debt back whilst they continue to burn cash; I’m not sure what light they can see in the tunnel, but I suspect it may turn out to be the oncoming 10.15 reality express. The oil price may be up, but the market is still saturated with assets.

Surprised it's not been scooped up and asset stripped. Though probably not enough in the way of assets to make it worthwhile

Itís recovered a bit to only be down by 50% on the day to 0.53 cents.

Surely not everyone they owe money to is happy just to let this meander on?

That should read 53 cents. Not 0.53 cents.

I'm trying to wrap my head around these numbers: BRS earnings per share = minus $10.17, at a net loss per share of $2.40, on a share that is currently worth $0.56. Bristow Group CEO Mr Miller says “If we become insolvent, investors in our common stock may lose the entire value of their investment in our business.” No kidding, pay that man a bonus!

Interesting letter from Global Value Investing Corps calling for the resignation of most of the Bristow board...
