"During 2005, our earnings registered quarterly improvement as conditions in the offshore drilling market became increasingly robust," commented Larry Dickerson, President and Chief Operating Officer. "By employing our capital for upgrades, new-builds and the purchase of existing rigs, we have enhanced our fleet, broadened our access to new markets, boosted our earnings potential and positioned the Company to generate significant cash flow. Virtually all of the fundamental market conditions that defined 2005 appear to remain in place for 2006, and we are confident in our market position and our ability to participate in any future improvements."
