SBM Offshore N.V.: SBM OFFSHORE FIRST QUARTER TRADING UPDATE

May 11, 2016

REVENUE ON TRACK; PROJECT DELIVERY FOCUS

Highlights

* Year-to-date 2016 Directional[1]revenue in line with Management
expectations at US$442 million

* Cidade de Maricá first oil achieved and on hire

* FPSOsCidade de Saquarema andTurritella on target for mid-year delivery

* Reiterating 2016 Directional1revenue and EBITDA guidance of at least US$2.0
billion and around US$750 million, respectively

Bruno Chabas, CEO of SBM Offshore commented:

"I'm pleased to see Lease and Operate cash flows continuing to grow with the
delivery ofCidade de Maricá
in the first quarter and the expected delivery of FPSOsCidade de Saquarema
andTurritella
around mid-year, all contributing to our strong liquidity position. Delivery
of these vessels combined with fleet operational reliability and focused cost
management remain areas of attention while new business in the offshore
deepwater segment is not expected to return to pre-downturn levels."

Financial Highlights

Year-to-date 2016 Directional1revenue came in at US$442 million versus US$601
million in the year-ago period. This decrease was entirely driven by lower
Turnkey activity levels on remaining projects under construction and low
order intake in 2015 and 2016. Directional1Turnkey segment revenue was down
55% year-on-year at US$148 million, while Lease and Operate segment revenue
increased 7% from the year-ago period to US$293 million. The growth in Lease
and Operate revenue is mostly attributable to the first quarter 2016 start-up
of FPSOCidade de
Maricá
and the fourth quarter 2015 new field start-up under the Thunder Hawk
DeepDraft(TM) Semi Production Handling Agreement in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

Directional1Backlog as of March 31, 2016 stood at US$18.5 billion. The
Company added US$55 million in new orders related to FEED and offshore
installation contracts. Although SBM Offshore is actively involved in
several tenders for FEED studies and final awards, it remains cautious on
order intake in view of the continuing downturn in the oil and gas industry.

Proportional net debt as of March 31, 2016 amounted to US$3.1 billion,
unchanged compared to the end of December 2015 as investments in new projects
are offset by cash generation from the Lease and Operate portfolio and cash
received from joint venture partners for theTurritella
project.

Gross Directional1capital expenditure through the first three months of 2016
amounted to US$63 million, before the deduction of roughly US$78 million of
upfront client payments. This reflects the advanced construction progress of
the Company's main projects nearing completion in the first half of 2016.
These amounts correspond to the SBM Offshore share in SBM Inc. (the Company's
construction subsidiary) costs as well as costs directly incurred at the
joint venture level, excluding changes in net working capital.

Post period, theCidade de Maricá
joint venture received the US$140 million contractual start-up payment from
the client, of which US$78 million is booked against SBM Offshore's
Directional1capital expenditure on the project.

Project Review

FPSO Cidade de Maricá (Brazil)

On February 16, 2016 SBM Offshore announced thatCidade de Maricá
was formally on hire as of February 7, 2016 after achieving first oil and the
completion of the 72-hour continuous production test leading to final
acceptance.

FPSO Cidade de Saquarema (Brazil)

Construction is ongoing for the finance leased vessel. Cidade de Saquarema
is nearing completion of topside commissioning at the joint venture Brasa yard
outside of Rio de Janeiro. The charter contract for the vessel includes an
initial period of 20 years. Delivery is scheduled for mid-2016.

FPSO Turritella (US Gulf of Mexico)

The vessel is on location in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Start-up of the
facility is expected in mid-2016. The charter contract includes an initial
period of 10 years with extension options up to a total of 20 years.

Browse FLNG FEED

On March 23, 2016, participants in the Browse Floating Liquified Natural Gas
(FLNG) project in Australia decided not to proceed with the development. As
a result, SBM Offshore's FEED activites related to the project have ceased.

Deep Panuke (Canada)

The Company's Deep Panuke production facility experienced a malfunctioning of
its flarestack on March 20, 2016. The facility is shutdown for repairs which
are expected to be completed within a 120 day shutdown allowance, during
which time there are no consequences to dayrate income.

Compliance

Discussions with the Brazilian authorities and Petrobras regarding a
settlement agreement are progressing. Timing and size of any potential
settlement remain to be confirmed. The Company took a US$245 million
provision in the 2015 accounts.

The Company is cooperating with the US Department of Justice in its enquiries
following the reopening of its case in January 2016.
Sea Lion FPSO FEED

On January 13, 2016 SBM Offshore announced that Premier Oil plc awarded the
Company the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract for an FPSO for
Phase 1 of its Sea Lion development in the North Falkland Basin.

Revolving Credit Facility

SBM Offshore, together with its core relationship banks, have agreed to an
amendment of its Revolving Credit Facility (RCF), providing headroom
improvements to the leverage and interest coverage ratios.

The interest coverage ratio threshold has been lowered from 5.0x to 4.0x from
December 31, 2016 through to maturity of the RCF at the end of 2019. The
leverage covenant is temporarily being adjusted upwards to 4.25x in December
2016, 4.50x in June 2017 and 4.25x in December 2017 before reverting back to
the originally agreed upon level of 3.75x through to maturity of the
facility.

The agreed upon amendments, combined with a strong cash position, provide the
Company will a larger degree of flexibility given the current industry
downturn.

Post-Period Events

Dividend

On April 6, 2016, the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders voted in favor of
the proposed US$0.21 per ordinary share dividend distribution. Dividends
were paid in Euros using an exchange rate of 1.1368, which equates to €0.1847
per ordinary share. The cash dividend was paid on May 3, 2016 to all
shareholders of record as of April 11, 2016.

FPSO Marlim Sul (Brazil)

Decommissioning activities were completed in April 2016. The vessel received
a decommissioning dayrate through the end of the first quarter of 2016. The
vessel will be marketed for future conversion opportunities.

Outlook and Guidance

As the downturn persists and client investment decisions continue to be
postponed, Management expects immaterial order intake in 2016 and 2017 while
maintaining its positive medium to long-term outlook. The Company considers
offshore development to be a crucial component of the overall energy mix to
meet future demand.

The Company is reiterating its 2016 Directional1revenue guidance of at least
US$2.0 billion, of which US$0.6-0.7 billion is expected in the Turnkey
segment and US$1.3-1.4 billion in the Lease and Operate segment. The Company
also reconfirms the 2016 Directional1EBITDA guidance of around US$750
million.

Directional[1]capital expenditure guidance for the remaining three finance
lease vessels under construction is expected to be approximately US$90
million. Directional1 capital expenditure excludes changes in net working
capital and is presented net of SBM Offshore's share of upfront client
payments for FPSOsCidade de Maricá
andCidade de Saquarema
.
