The share issue was significantly oversubscribed.
Given the latest contract development only two of the Company's newbuild deepwater units are available for assignments before 2010. There are today several interesting prospects for these units. Based on good progress in securing contracts for its available units, the tightening yard slot situation, pressure on building prices and the strong underlying fundamentals, Seadrill has, as earlier reported, entered into discussions with major yards regarding further newbuilds. The new equity is targeted at further investments in deepwater newbuilds.
