Comparison of results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2008 with the preceding quarter ended September 30, 2008 is included in the discussion below.

Highlights for the Quarter

Offshore Marine Services -- Operating income in the fourth quarter was $97.2 million on operating revenues of $186.0 million compared with operating income of $84.5 million on operating revenues of $196.9 million in the preceding quarter. Fourth quarter results included $34.2 million in gains on asset dispositions compared with $13.5 million in gains in the preceding quarter.

Excluding the impact of gains on asset dispositions, operating income in the fourth quarter was $7.9 million lower than in the preceding quarter. The decrease was primarily due to lower time charter revenues, principally in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico where the Company's AHTS vessels undertook fewer rig moves. Operating revenues were also lower due to net fleet dispositions and a decline in the value of the pound sterling. In the fourth quarter, $3.1 million of vessel charter hire billed to two customers was deferred due to uncertainty regarding the collection of the amounts in question. The Company will recognize the amounts as operating revenues as cash is collected. Overall operating expenses were lower primarily as a result of lower wage expense and lower charter-in expense. Administrative and general expenses were higher primarily due to a $1.1 million increase in the provision for doubtful accounts for receivables due from the two customers noted above.

The number of days available for charter in the fourth quarter decreased by 263, or 1.7%, primarily as a result of a net reduction in fleet count. Overall utilization decreased from 87.7% to 87.5% and overall average day rates were lower at $12,402 per day compared with $13,161 per day in the preceding quarter.

Marine Transportation Services -- Marine Transportation Services reported operating income in the fourth quarter of $2.1 million on operating revenues of $28.8 million compared with an operating loss of $4.3 million on operating revenues of $27.5 million in the preceding quarter.

The improvement in operating results was primarily due to the return to service of the Seabulk Arctic on October 7, 2008 and the Seabulk Pride on October 21, 2008 after completing regulatory drydockings. Operating results improved for the Seabulk Challenge due to higher freight revenues but were lower for the California Voyager (formerly - Brenton Reef) following its change in contract status from time charter to a long-term bareboat contract in September 2008.

Inland River Services -- Operating income in the fourth quarter was $20.4 million on operating revenues of $44.0 million compared with operating income of $11.6 million on operating revenues of $36.5 million in the preceding quarter. Fourth quarter results included $4.1 million in gains on asset dispositions, the same amount as in the preceding quarter.

Operating income was $8.8 million higher in the fourth quarter primarily due to higher freight rates and increased activity on the lower Mississippi River in support of the grain harvest. Operating expenses were generally in line with the increased activity levels but were also impacted by lower prevailing fuel prices and lower repair and maintenance expenditures for towboats and liquid tank barges.

Aviation Services -- Aviation Services reported an operating loss in the fourth quarter of $3.2 million on operating revenues of $57.6 million compared with operating income of $10.1 million on operating revenues of $73.5 million in the preceding quarter. There were no gains on asset dispositions in the fourth quarter compared with $1.3 million in gains in the preceding quarter.

Excluding the impact of gains on asset dispositions, operating income was $11.9 million lower in the fourth quarter primarily due to a reduction in hurricane support activity and drilling contracts in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and the end of seasonal activity in Alaska. Reductions in operating expenses were generally in line with the decreased activity levels but were partially offset by higher maintenance costs due to the timing of component overhauls and fleet repair and maintenance and higher expenses related to hurricane disruption in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. In addition, depreciation expense was higher due to newly acquired assets being placed in service.

Environmental Services -- Operating income in the fourth quarter was $5.5 million on operating revenues of $45.4 million compared with operating income of $4.3 million on operating revenues of $42.2 million in the preceding quarter. The improvement in operating income was primarily due to higher emergency response service activities partially offset by higher compensation expense.

Commodity Trading -- Commodity trading reported an operating loss in the fourth quarter of $3.8 million on operating revenues of $79.9 million compared with operating income of $5.2 million on operating revenues of $44.3 million in the preceding quarter. Operating results in the fourth quarter were impacted by lower product sales of rice, increased insurance costs, higher wage and benefit costs, higher freight costs due to increased activity in renewable fuels and higher rental costs for increased storage capacity. In addition, the carrying values of certain inventories at December 31, 2008 were reduced to reflect the lower of cost or market.

Harbor and Offshore Towing Services -- Operating income in the fourth quarter was $2.4 million on operating revenues of $16.8 million compared with operating income of $3.1 million on operating revenues of $19.5 million in the preceding quarter. The decrease in operating results was primarily due to generally lower activity levels.

Interest Income -- Interest income was $2.6 million in the fourth quarter compared with $4.3 million in the preceding quarter. The decrease was primarily due to lower invested cash balances and lower interest rates.

Interest Expense -- Interest expense was $13.3 million in the fourth quarter compared with $14.4 million in the prior quarter. The reduction in interest expense was primarily due to the Company's purchase during the fourth quarter of $101.8 million in principal amount of its Senior Notes partially offset by its drawdown of $100.0 million on its unsecured revolving credit facility, resulting in a lower overall interest rate.

Debt Extinguishment -- During the fourth quarter, the Company recorded gains of $6.3 million on the purchase of $101.8 million in principal amount of its Senior Notes. The gains resulted from the purchase of the notes at average prices below par and the recognition of unamortized premiums.

Derivatives -- Derivative losses were $4.5 million in the fourth quarter compared with losses of $8.4 million in the preceding quarter. The losses in the fourth quarter were primarily due to losses on U.S. treasury notes and bond future and option contracts, and forward exchange, option and future contracts partially offset by gains on equity index and option positions.

Foreign Currencies -- Foreign currency losses were $4.4 million in the fourth quarter compared with losses of $6.7 million in the preceding quarter. Fourth quarter losses were primarily due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar versus the pound sterling.

Marketable Securities -- Marketable security losses were $0.5 million in the fourth quarter compared with gains of $36.0 million in the preceding quarter.

Income Taxes -- The Company's effective income tax rate was 29.7% in the fourth quarter primarily due to benefits recognized on the reduction of deferred tax liabilities resulting from lower state tax apportionment factors.

Equity in Earnings of 50% or Less Owned Companies -- Equity in earnings from joint ventures was $4.0 million in the fourth quarter compared with equity in earnings of $2.2 million in the preceding quarter. The increase was primarily due to a $1.3 million loss, net of tax, recognized by the Company in the preceding quarter resulting from an impairment charge on prime broker exposure recorded in one of its Inland River Services' joint ventures.

Stock and Debt Repurchases -- During the fourth quarter, the Company purchased 400 shares of its common stock at an average price of $54.86 per share. At the end of the quarter, 20,017,547 shares of SEACOR's common stock remained outstanding.

During the fourth quarter, the Company purchased $64.7 million in principal amount of its 7.2% Senior Notes due September 2009 at an average price of 100 percent of par, $36.6 million in principal amount of its 9.5% Senior Notes due August 2013 at an average price of 91 percent of par and $0.5 million in principal amount of its 5.875% Senior Notes due October 2012 at 86 percent of par.

Capital Commitments -- The Company's unfunded capital commitments as of December 31, 2008, consisted primarily of offshore marine vessels, helicopters, inland river barges and inland river towboats and totaled $157.4 million, of which $113.3 million is payable during 2009 and the balance payable through 2010. Of the total unfunded capital commitments, $22.6 million may be terminated without further liability other than the payment of liquidated damages of $1.8 million in the aggregate. As of December 31, 2008, the Company held balances of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, marketable securities, construction reserve funds and title XI reserve funds totaling $655.8 million.
