Estimated for purposes of calculating the filing fee only. The transaction valuation was calculated as the sum of (i) 20,372,799 outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”), of SEACOR Holdings Inc. (“SEACOR”) multiplied by $41.50, and (ii) 1,600,613 Shares issuable pursuant to outstanding “in-the-money” stock options multiplied by an amount equal to $41.50 minus the exercise price for such options. The calculation of the filing fee is based on information provided by SEACOR as of December 16, 2020.

The filing fee was calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Fee Rate Advisory #1 for fiscal year 2021 beginning on October 1, 2020, issued August 26, 2020, by multiplying the transaction value by 0.00010910.
