As we saw in the previous article, Ensco recently won three new contracts. Two of these contracts are expected to commence in 3Q17, which could boost Ensco’s revenues. Analysts expect Ensco to record $467 million in revenues in 3Q17, which would be the first uptick after a fall in revenues for four consecutive quarters.
Ensco’s 2017 revenues are expected to reach ~$1.8 billion, which would be 33.5% lower than its revenues of ~$2.8 billion in 2016. Its revenues are expected to fall to ~$1.7 billion in 2018.
On March 31, 2017, Ensco had a total contracted backlog of $3.3 billion. After the company’s merger with Atwood Oceanics, the company’s backlog would be $3.7 billion.
