seadrill ltd (SDRL) Key Developments

TheGrantLawFirm, PLLC Files Class Action Against SeaDrill Limited

TheGrantLawFirm, PLLC announced that it has filed a class action suit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of SeaDrill Limited American Depository Receipts during the period of May 28, 2014 to November 25, 2014 (the Class Period). The complaint alleges that Seadrill and certain of its senior executives violated federal securities laws by making false and misleading statements about the strength of the Company's business prospects, repeatedly misleading investors regarding the sustainability of the Company's dividend. As a result of defendants Class Period statements, Seadrill ADRs traded at artificially inflated prices, reaching a high of over $38 per ADR by July 2014. On November 26, 2014, as further alleged, Seadrill disclosed that it was indefinitely suspending its dividend, causing the price of its stock to plummet.

Seadrill Limited Appoints Charles Woodburn as Director

The board of Seadrill Limited announced that Dr. Charles Woodburn has been appointed as a director of the company. Dr. Woodburn has been the chief executive officer of Expro Group since 2010. Previously, he spent 15 years with Schlumberger where he held many senior management roles, including President of Wireline. More recently, he was in charge of Schlumberger's engineering and manufacturing, reporting directly to the chief operating officer.

The Securities Litigation Law Firm of Brower Piven Commences Legal Action Against Seadrill Limited

The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of Seadrill Limited during the period between July 10, 2014 and November 25, 2014, inclusive. Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until February 3, 2015 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff. The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants failure to disclose during the Class Period that turbulence in the oil industry would or could cause the Company to cut its $4 per share annual dividend. According to the complaint, following the company's November 26, 2014 announcement that it had missed its profit targets and was indefinitely suspending its dividend to pay down its debt to strengthen its balance sheet and that the company's Board of Directors had authorized the repurchase of up to 10% of its outstanding shares, the value of Seadrill shares declined significantly.
