NOTIFICATION OF THE REMOVAL FROM LISTING AND REGISTRATION OF THE STATED SECURITIES
The New York Stock Exchange ('NYSE' or the 'Exchange') hereby notifies the Securities and Exchange Commission (the 'Commission') of its intention to remove the entire class of the common stock ('Common Stock') of Bristow Group Inc. (the 'Company') from listing and registration on the Exchange at the opening of business on June 10, 2019, pursuant to the provisions of Rule 12d2-2(b) because, in the opinion of the Exchange, the Common Stock is no longer suitable for continued listing and trading on the Exchange.
The Exchange reached its decision pursuant to Section 802.01D of the Listed Company Manual (the 'Manual') based on the Company's May 11, 2019 announcement that it had voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas.
Section 802.01D of the Manual states that the Exchange would normally give consideration to suspending or removing from the list a security of a company when 'an intent to file under any of the sections of the bankruptcy law has been announced or a filing has been made or liquidation has been authorized and the company is committed to proceed'.
The Exchange, on May 13, 2019, determined that the Common Stock of the Company should be suspended from trading, and directed the preparation and filing with the Commission of this application for the removal of the Common Units from listing and registration on the Exchange. The Company was notified by phone and letter on May 13, 2019.
Pursuant to the above authorization, on May 13, 2019, a press release regarding the proposed delisting was issued and posted on the Exchange's website and trading in the Common Stock were suspended prior to the market open.
The Company had a right to appeal to a Committee of the Board of Directors of the Exchange (the 'Committee') the determination to delist the Common Stock, provided that it filed a written request for such a review with the Secretary of the Exchange within ten business days of receiving notice of the delisting determination. The Company did not file such request within the specified time period. Consequently, all conditions precedent under SEC Rule 12d2-2(b) to the filing of this application have been satisfied.
