Announcing Completion of Major Fleet Transaction With Bristow Group Inc.

As part of completing this transaction, Amur HFS provided short-term operating leases to Bristow for several aircraft still required under customer contracts in the Gulf of Mexico. Bristow may extend these leases as needed to meet its customer obligations. In addition, several of the aircraft will be delivered to and purchased by Amur HFS in the 4th quarter of 2014 when they come off their current contract with Bristow. This combination of direct purchase, sale/leaseback and forward purchase commitment demonstrates Amur HFS’ flexibility in structuring transactions to meet its clients’ needs.

Neil Calvert, Amur HFS’ CEO said, “This fleet transaction demonstrates the breadth of services now being offered to the helicopter industry by Amur HFS.” He added, “As we introduce this business, we are delighted to support such a well-respected and industry leading operator as Bristow.”

Jonathan Baliff, Bristow’s Senior Vice President and CFO said, “Bristow is pursuing many Bristow Value Added (BVA) accretive opportunities to support our clients as they move into increasingly deeper water exploration and production. We are divesting our smaller aircraft in support of our long term strategy to meet our customers’ future demands while also reducing the number of fleet types from the current 28 types to approximately eight fleet types in ten years.” He commented, “Amur is a full service provider that offered a truly comprehensive solution suited to Bristow’s specific needs.”

Amur HFS completed the entire transaction within 60 days of the proposal acceptance by Bristow. The quick execution of the transaction is highly demonstrative of the service level, expertise and comprehensive solutions that Amur HFS is able to provide the industry.
