Part III — Narrative

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Bristow Group Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2019 (the “Second Quarter Form 10-Q”) within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense because the Company needs additional time to complete its financial statements and related disclosures.

On May 11, 2019, the Company and its subsidiaries BHNA Holdings Inc., Bristow Alaska Inc., Bristow Helicopters Inc., Bristow U.S. Leasing LLC, Bristow U.S. LLC, BriLog Leasing Ltd. and Bristow Equipment Leasing Ltd. (together, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division (the “Bankruptcy Court”), seeking relief under Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”). The Debtors’ Chapter 11 Cases were jointly administered under the caption In re: Bristow Group Inc., et al., Main Case No. 19-32713. On August 20, 2019, the Debtors filed an Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization (as subsequently modified on August 22, 2019 and September 30, 2019, the “Plan”) and the related disclosure statement for the Plan (as subsequently modified on August 22, 2019, the “Disclosure Statement”) with the Bankruptcy Court. On October 8, 2019, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order approving the Disclosure Statement and confirming the Plan. On October 31, 2019, the Plan became effective in accordance with its terms and the Debtors emerged from the Chapter 11 Cases.

As previously disclosed in the Company’s Form 12b-25 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2019, the Company was unable to file in a timely manner its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2019 (the “First Quarter Form 10-Q”). The Company is in the process of preparing and completing the initial filing of the First Quarter Form 10-Q.

As a result of the facts and circumstances discussed above, the effort required to prepare and complete the First Quarter Form 10-Q, as well as the Company’s attention to the Chapter 11 Cases and matters related to the Debtor’s emergence from the Chapter 11 cases, the Company is delayed in the preparation and completion of the Second Quarter Form 10-Q.

The Company intends to file the Second Quarter Form 10-Q as soon as practicable after the filing of the First Quarter Form 10-Q. The Second Quarter Form 10-Q is expected to include disclosure to express substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern based on estimates of liquidity, including the effects of the Chapter 11 Cases.
