Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that it is investigating
potential claims against Hercules Offshore, Inc. ("Hercules" or the
"Company") (Nasdaq: HERO) and its Board of Directors related to the
Company's compensation package for its CEO and other executives.
The investigation concerns whether the Board of Directors breached their
fiduciary duties by awarding themselves excessive compensation despite

Hercules' "say on pay provision" at the Company's annual meeting.
Hercules' CEO compensation increased 110% year-over-year from 2010 to
2011. The Company's share price has plummeted from a high of $3.48 at
the end of 2010 to currently approximately $3.03 per share.
