Subsequent Events

  • West Phoenix obtained an extension of work in Norway
  • We continue to evaluate capital structure proposals from our financial stakeholders; whilst no agreement has been reached at this
    point it is expected that potential solutions will lead to significant equitization of debt which is likely to result in minimal or no
    recovery for current shareholders

Anton Dibowitz, President and CEO, commented:

“Global market sentiment for the quarter has been poor, as the real impacts of COVID-19 and reduced demand have begun to crystallize. While the industry-wide demand deficiencies remain outside our control, we have been concentrating our efforts on what we can influence,
namely, our day-to-day operations and our capital structure. Despite the weak market outlook, we are pleased to be adding to our backlog and above all, delivering for our customers including through extended work programs on our rigs.

“We will be prioritizing our cash preservation and efficiency plan to prepare ourselves for the challenges that our industry faces in the short to medium-term. From a capital structure perspective, we continue to engage with our financial stakeholders to ensure we create a debt structure appropriate for the new market environment. Our $1.0bn cash balance at the end of the quarter provides us with necessary flexibility to manage this process.

“I’d like to commend every member of the Seadrill community for their contributions during this time. We have seen how our onshore and offshore employees have adjusted and grown accustomed to the new ways of working during COVID-19, the effectiveness with which they
have done so has galvanized our entire organization and motivated us to persevere through these challenging times.”
