Stockholders’ Investment, Common Stock and Preferred Stock
As of March 31, 2021 (Successor), there were 29,694,071 shares of Combined Company Common Stock outstanding.
In connection with the Merger, the Old Bristow Preferred Stock was converted into Old Bristow Common Stock and then all Old Bristow Common Stock was converted into the Combined Company Common Stock.
Because the Old Bristow Preferred Stock could be redeemed in certain circumstances outside of the sole control of Old Bristow (including at the option of the holder), but was not mandatorily redeemable, the Old Bristow Preferred Stock was classified as mezzanine equity and initially recognized at fair value of $618.9 million as of October 31, 2019 (Successor). This amount was reduced by the fair value of the bifurcated derivative liability as of October 31, 2019 (Successor) of $470.3 million, resulting in an initial value of $148.6 million. The difference between (a) the carrying value of the embedded derivative of $270.8 million plus the carrying value of the Preferred Stock Host of $148.6 million and (b) the fair value of the Old Bristow Common Stock of $270.7 million paid as consideration for the Old Bristow Preferred Stock was recognized in retained earnings because the fair value of the Old Bristow Common Stock was less than the combined carrying values of the Old Bristow Preferred Stock Host and embedded derivative.
Prior to the Merger, there were 11,092,845 shares of Old Bristow Common Stock and 6,725,798 shares of Old Bristow Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. As described in Note 7 to the consolidated financial statements, Old Bristow repurchased certain shares of Old Bristow Common Stock and shares of Old Bristow Preferred Stock immediately prior to the conversion of the Old Bristow Preferred Stock into Old Bristow Common Stock. The repurchase was accounted for in the same manner as the share conversion and included in the calculation described above. The Old Bristow Preferred Stock was converted into Old Bristow Common Stock at a rate of 5.179562 shares of Old Bristow Common Stock for each share of Old Bristow Preferred Stock.
The Old Bristow Common Stock was then subsequently exchanged for the Combined Company Common Stock, resulting in a total of 24,195,693 shares of Combined Company Common Stock issued to legacy Old Bristow stockholders. This resulted in a total of 30,882,471 shares of Combined Company Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately after consummation of the Merger. Upon the closing of the Merger, 217,899 shares of restricted stock awards and 145,263 stock options to purchase common stock for certain employees, related to Old Bristow employees, were canceled as a result of separation from the Combined Company. Upon the closing of the Merger, vesting of 145,604 shares of restricted stock awards, related to the Combined Company’s employees were also accelerated.
On September 16, 2020, the Board authorized a stock repurchase plan providing for the repurchase of up to $75.0 million of the Company's common stock. Repurchases under the program may be made in the open market, including pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 plan, by block repurchases, in private transactions (including with related parties) or otherwise, from time to time, depending on market conditions. The share repurchase program has no expiration date and may be suspended or discontinued at any time without notice.
During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, the Company repurchased 448,252 shares of common stock in open market transactions for gross consideration of $10.0 million, equal to an average purchase price per share of $22.29. After these repurchases, as of March 31, 2021, $65.0 million of the original $75.0 million authorized under share repurchase program remained.
Earnings per Share
Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per common share excludes options to purchase common shares and restricted stock units and awards which were outstanding during the period but were anti-dilutive. The following table shows the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share (in thousands, except share and per share amounts):
(1)See Note 7 for further discussion on PIK dividends.
(2)For the five months ended March 31, 2020 the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, basic and diluted, take into account the conversion ratio applied to Old Bristow shares upon close of the Merger.
(3)Excludes weighted average common shares of 135,882 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 (Successor), 3,175,849 for the seven months ended October 31, 2019 (Predecessor) and 2,490,483 fiscal year ended March 31, 2019, respectively, for certain share awards as the effect of their inclusion would have been antidilutive. The Old Bristow Preferred Stock is not included on an if-converted basis under diluted earnings per common share as the conversion of the shares would have been anti-dilutive.
(4)Potentially dilutive shares issuable pursuant to the warrant transactions entered into concurrently with the issuance of the Old Bristow’s 4½% Convertible Senior Notes (the “Warrant Transactions”) were not included in the computation of diluted income per share for the 2019 periods reflected, because to do so would have been anti-dilutive.
Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)
The following table shows the changes in balances for accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) (in thousands):
(1)Reclassification of amounts related to pension liability adjustments are included as a component of net periodic pension cost.(2)Reclassification of amounts related to cash flow hedges were included as operating expenses
