SeaDrill Limited Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Cash Flow Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the First Quarter of 2015

Seadrill Limited announced consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and cash flow results for the year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported EBITDA of $672 million. Net income was $150 million and earnings per share were $0.32. Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2014 were $1,261 million compared to $1,293 million in the third quarter of 2014. Operating profit for the quarter was $452 million compared to $461 million in the preceding quarter. The decrease was primarily due to downtime on the West Phoenix and West Venture, removal of the West Vela following the sale to Seadrill Partners and loss on impairment of goodwill, offset by commencement of operations on the West Saturn, West Jupiter, and West Neptune and gain on disposals. Net financial and other items for the quarter showed a loss of $251 million compared to a loss of $232 million in the previous quarter. The loss was primarily related to interest expense and losses on the mark to market of derivative financial instruments, offset by interest income and foreign exchange gains. Net income was negatively impacted by a non-cash impairment of goodwill of $232 million relating to the Jack-up segment. For the year, the company reported net cash provided by operating activities of $1,574 million. For the first quarter of 2015, the company projected EBITDA of $40 million less than the $672 million reported in fourth quarter of 2014.

SeaDrill Limited Updates on Petrobras Contracts

At the time of its third quarter earnings release in November 2014, Seadrill Limited announced that Petrobras approval had been received for the extensions of its ultra-deepwater semi-submersibles the West Taurus and West Eminence. Due to recent developments within Petrobras, the Company no longer believes the contracts will be concluded in the timeframe or on the previously approved commercial terms.

Seadrill continues to work with Petrobras and its partners to find a mutually agreeable commercial solution. At the time of the third quarter earnings release Seadrill also announced approval for contract awards on the Libra Field for the ultra-deepwater drillships the West Tellus and West Carina. The final contracts have been signed and commencement of operations is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2015. Update on Petrobras Contracts.
