Entire Document

Our stock price has been volatile, declining precipitously from time to time during the period from 2013 through the present, and it could decline again.
The securities markets in general and our common stock in particular have experienced significant price and volume volatility in recent years. The market price and trading volume of our common stock may continue to experience significant fluctuations due not only to general stock market conditions but also to a change in sentiment in the market regarding our operations or business prospects or those of companies in our industry. In addition to the other risk factors discussed above, the price and volume volatility of our common stock may be affected by:
factors influencing the levels of global oil and natural gas exploration and exploitation activities, such as the current depressed prices for oil or natural gas;
the ability or willingness of OPEC to set and maintain production levels for oil;
oil and gas production levels by non-OPEC countries;
operating results that vary from the expectations of securities analysts and investors;
disasters such as the Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010;
the operating and securities price performance of companies that investors or analysts consider comparable to us;
actions by rating agencies related to our 2019 convertible senior notes, our 2020 senior notes, or our 2021 senior notes;
geopolitical risks;
announcements of strategic developments, acquisitions and other material events by us or by our competitors; and
changes in global financial markets and global economies and general market conditions, such as interest rates, commodity and equity prices and the value of financial assets.

ITEM 2—Properties
Our principal executive offices are in Covington, Louisiana, where we lease approximately 65,000 square feet of office space under a lease with an initial term expiring in September 2025 and three additional five-year renewal periods. Our primary domestic operating office is located in Port Fourchon, Louisiana. We also maintain four international offices from which we operate our fleet of vessels in Mexico and Brazil, as set forth below. For more information, see "Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" included within this report. We believe that our facilities, including waterfront locations used for vessel dockage and certain vessel repair work, provide an adequate base of operations for the foreseeable future.
