Pacific Drilling Reportedly Becoming A Takeover Target

Pacific Drilling S.A. (NYSE:PACD) is gaining interest as a takeover target due to its depressed market value owing to year-long oil price rout. Pacific Drilling has attracted interest from Ensco plc (NYSE:ESV), Transocean Ltd. (NYSE:RIG) and SeaDrill Limited (NYSE:SDRL) in the last 12 to 18 months, according to a person familiar with the matter. One of those approaches was made in 2015, the person said, asking not to be identified as the information is private. Pacific Drilling isn’t actively exploring a sale and the approaches so far have been rebuffed, according to the person. Amy Roddy, a representative for Pacific Drilling, said the company doesn’t comment on speculation of any transaction. Representatives for Ensco and Transocean didn’t respond to requests for comment, nor did a London-based representative for Seadrill, reported Bloomberg.

Seadrill Limited Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides EBITDA Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2015

SeaDrill Limited reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. Revenues for the first quarter of 2015 were $1,244 million compared to $1,261 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Operating profit for the quarter was $703 million compared to $452 million in the preceding quarter. The increase was primarily due to the gain on deconsolidation of SeaMex, a full quarter of operations for the West Saturn, West Jupiter, and West Neptune partially offset by idle time on the West Navigator and the loss on impairment of goodwill recognized in the previous quarter. Net financial and other items for the quarter showed a loss of $197 million compared to a loss of $251 million in the previous quarter. The loss was primarily related to interest expense and losses on the mark to market of derivative financial instruments, partially offset by interest income and foreign exchange gains. Net cash provided by operating activities was $492 million against $656 million a year ago. EBITDA was $711 million. Additions to newbuildings were $452 million against $722 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $506 million against $3,129 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the parent was $427 million against $3,068 million a year ago. Net income was $448 million or $0.86 per diluted share against $3,094 million or $6.23 per diluted share a year ago. The company expects second quarter of 2015, EBITDA to be approximately $70 million less than the first quarter driven primarily by idle time on the West Taurus and West Eclipse and downtime expected on the West Gemini for a 5 year SPS survey. Approximately $25 million of the sequential decline can be attributed to a full quarter of deconsolidation of SeaMex.
