ITEM 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure
In accordance with the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, GulfMark Offshore Inc. (the Company) notes that certain statements set forth in this Current Report on Form 8-K provide other than historical information and are forward looking. The actual achievement of any forecasted results, or the unfolding of future economic or business developments in a way anticipated or projected by the Company, involve numerous risks and uncertainties. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are: price of oil and gas and their effect on industry conditions; industry volatility; fluctuations in the size of the offshore marine vessel fleet in areas where GulfMark operates; changes in competitive factors; delay or cost overruns on construction projects and other material factors that are described from time to time in GulfMark’s filings with the SEC, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008. Consequently, the forward-looking statements contained herein should not be regarded as representations that the projected outcomes can or will be achieved. Readers should consider all of these risk factors as well as other information contained in this report.
The information in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section.
