Helix Announces $200 Million Share Repurchase Program

Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc. ("Helix") (NYSE: HLX) announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized a repurchase program for up to $200 million of Helix’s issued and outstanding shares.

Owen Kratz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Helix, stated, “We view this program as a prudent use of our capital and an excellent opportunity to deploy cash to shareholders. We expect to generally align execution of the program with our cash flow generation. With a strong balance sheet, ample liquidity, a robust offshore services market recovery, and our current expectation that we will generate strong cash flows, the share repurchase program should allow us to increase shareholder value while maintaining adequate cash and liquidity to fund our operations and investment opportunities.”

Repurchases under the new program may be made in open market purchases in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), privately negotiated transactions, or plans, instructions or contracts established under Rule 10b5-1 of the Exchange Act. The manner, timing and amount of any purchase will be determined by management based on an evaluation of market conditions, stock prices, liquidity and other factors. The program does not obligate Helix to acquire any particular amount of common stock and may be modified or superseded at any time.
