Seawell, Allis-Chalmers Merger Finalized

Seawell and Allis-Chalmers announced that the Allis-Chalmers stockholders approved the proposals related to the proposed merger of Allis-Chalmers into Wellco Sub Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Seawell and that the merger has been completed.

Each share of Allis-Chalmers stock will be converted into either $4.25 in cash or 1.15 common shares of Seawell, depending on elections made by the Allis-Chalmers stockholders. Seawell and Allis-Chalmers anticipate that the final election results will be determined by March 4, 2011.

Seawell and Allis-Chalmers also confirmed that the deadline for Allis-Chalmers stockholders to make an election with respect to the type of merger consideration they wish to receive expired today at 5:00 p.m., Houston time. Based on the preliminary election results, approximately 97% of Allis-Chalmers stockholders elected to receive Seawell common shares and, as a result, Seawell may issue up to approximately 101 million common shares in connection with the merger, including shares issuable upon exercise of Allis-Chalmers options assumed by Seawell pursuant to the merger.
